Total War Rome 2

Total War: Rome 2 is the eighth installment in the Total War series and in The Creative Assembly's return to Rome they've amped up everything we've come to love about the series. During our most recent preview of the game, we got to witness the tremendous Siege of Carthage, in which a young Scipio Aemilianus leads a massive army, complete with naval fleet, to the city of Carthage in order to sack and destroy it. Here's a snippet from our preview:

Before we knew it, the ships pulled up and our soldiers disembarked into a bloodbath. Watching the armies fight one another is a sight to behold, as thousands of troops are on screen at once going at it. Carthaginian defenders sat atop walls firing arrows while our troops formed ranks to charge up the beach and assault the city from every angle.

Strike Suit Zero

We got to play Strike Suit Zero at Gamescom 2012, because we're cool like that. The space-combat title from Born Ready Games pays homage to classic flight simulators like Wing Commander and Homeworld, and gives the people what they want. Let's face it: Space-combat fans haven't exactly been served much by recent games. 

Check out a bit of Leah Jackson's Strike Suit Zero preview:

Strike Suit Zero takes place in outer space far in the future after Earth's colonized the galaxy. The story's still not quite there yet, but as far as I can tell, not everyone in the galaxy is happy about Earth's colonization. So much so that one alien race has sent a relic to Earth to try and destroy it. It'll be up to you to stop the Earth's destruction by suiting up and piloting different ships and taking out your enemies before they can get the relic to their destination, and your home.

Deadpool

Fan favorite comic book character Deadpool is finally getting his own, full fledged game, Deadpool, developed by High Moon Studios. Fans of Deadpool the character should be reassured by this over-the-top action's game's adherence to the source material. Deadpool is good.

Rob "Rock and Roll" Manuel checked the game out at Gamescom 2012. Here's a little bit of his Deadpool preview.

"Even during the craziest of fights, quips and one-liners practically fill every moment between the bullet casings hitting the floor and the ensuing explosions rocking the building. Deadpool still finds time between every squeeze of the trigger to argue with himself about anything and everything going on in the scene. If a new enemy appears with a shiny new gun, he won’t stop talking about it with his multiple personalities until he gets to fire off that new toy for himself."

Warface

Warface was one of the biggest surprises to come out of Gamescom 2012. Crytek's free-to-play shooter impressed con-goers, and G4's Leah Jackson was no different. She's pretty confident Warface has the potential to become a thrilling shooter experience.

Here's a taste of her hands-on Warface preview.

After getting my hands on Warface, I was pretty blown away by what Crytek has managed to accomplish. I can see the random daily missions appealing to a wide a variety of gamers, and on top of that, the game has a level of polish that we're not used to seeing from today's other free-to-play fare. With Warface's release, Crytek is setting the standard higher than ever before, and I can't wait to try to tackle the challenging missions with a group of friends when the game goes in to beta this fall for the PC.

For everything Warface, check out our hands-on Warface preview.
