The King of Iron Fist Tournament returns as do classic Tekken characters, Kazuya Mishima, Heihachi Mishima, Lei Wulong and a host of others in this trailer for Tekken 6.
The Fireteam Bravo series is big business on the PSP. Each of the previous two games has sold over a million copies, and players have racked up countless kills in the games' robust online modes.
So a sequel was a no-brainer. But it's clear the designers aren't content with just churning out another set of maps; Fireteam Bravo 3 packs enough additions and improvements to feel like a legitimate evolution of the franchise.
First and most noticeable is the addition of two new teammates to the squad. The two-man team of the previous games is now a full four-man squad as in the original SOCOM games on PS2. This should offer a greater tactical element, allowing for more complex, concerted maneuvers. (Also adding to the tactical side of things is an enhanced weapon customization feature, with five slots available to add things like suppressors and scopes).
Zipper Interactive knows how to think big. Maybe it's the fact that the company got its start designing Apache helicopter sims for the U.S. military -- it may be that any civilian game development feels like a cakewalk in comparison. But whatever the reason, the developer has been pushing forward in the online arena since they launched the PS2 network adapter with the original SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs way back in 2002. The series started out with 16-player online play, and graduated to 32-player matches with SOCOM 3. 2006's Combined Assault added four-player co-op. These were sensible, predictable improvements.
MAG, on the other hand, is almost ridiculously ambitious.

One of Nintendo's biggest surprises at E3 this year was the unveiling of a collaboration between Nintendo and Team Ninja, Metroid: The Other M. It's not a sequel to Retro Studios' Metroid Prime series, nor a brand-new side-scrolling adventure. Metroid: The Other M is something completely different -- an action-brawler.
Even though Nintendo was touting a number of new games at E3 that supported MotionPlus, Metroid: The Other M won't be one of them, Team Ninja's Yusuke Hayashi explained to me during an interview at E3 this week.
"It [Metroid] is not compatible with the Wii MotionPlus," said Hayashi. "One of our major goals with this game is beautiful game design and as we were progressing through development we discovered that it [MotionPlus] was actually not working with what we were shooting for. Once you get your hands on a demo and really experience it for yourself, you should understand what I'm talking about."
I'm anxious to find out what he means, too. Maybe at Tokyo Game Show?
