Return to Wonderland this week or dust off the controller for the long awaited arrival of a game fourteen years in the making.
Duke Nukem Forever
Developer: 3D Realms, Triptych Games, Gearbox Software, Piranha Games
Publisher: 2K Games
Genre: First-person shooter
Console(s): Xbox 360, PS3, PC
Duke Nukem Forever has long been considered the lost ark of video games. The sequel to the 1996 title Duke Nukem 3D, DNF was first announced in 1997, after which it promptly fell off the planet. Now, almost 14 years later, it’s finally seeing the light of day. Like it’s predecessor, you’ll blast your way through aliens shooter-style in an effort to reclaim your stolen women and save the day. The story’s not important here, because let’s face it—if you’re playing this game, it’s more for the novelty and nostalgia’s sake than the plot. Sensitive gamers beware; this title is not for those with objections to the vulgar or crude.
Alice: Madness Returns
Developer: Spicy Horse
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Genre: Action-adventure, Platform
Console(s): Xbox 360, PS3, PC
Alice has tumbled off the edge again, but this time it’s not just into the rabbit hole. Eleven years after the original, both in time of release and the virtual world, Alice now resides in Victorian London. Tormented by the deaths of her parents in a fire years before, she finds herself slipping once more into memories and hallucinations of Wonderland. This macabre take on a kid’s classic combines combat, puzzles and platforming to create a unique and thrilling action-horror game.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
Developer: High Moon Studios, Behavior Interactive
Genre: Third-person shooter
Console(s): Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PC, 3DS
Surprise surprise, Megatron is once again plotting chaos and destruction for good ‘ol planet Earth. The world leaders may have their doubts about his whereabouts, but luckily Optimus Prime knows what’s up. Dark of the Moon puts you in the shoes-err, wheels, of the Autobots to take on the Decepticons once more. The game offers a single player campaign, as well as multiplayer co-op and competitive play to battle it out with your friends. Reprise the role of your favorite metal menaces in this prequel to the upcoming Transformers film.
