Hotline Miami is a high-octane action game overflowing with raw brutality, hard-boiled gunplay and skull crushing close combat. Set in an alternative 1989 Miami, you will assume the role of a mysterious antihero on a murderous rampage against the shady underworld at the behest of voices on your answering machine.
The second and final extra level to be included on the House of the Dead: Overkill Wii to PS3 port has been revealed and it’s something to truly marvel at:
As was the case last time, Varla and her stripper friend Candy find themselves in an unlikely scenario where everything could (and probably WILL) go wrong. If you want to run away and hide from Zombies in a B-flick inspired universe… what better place is there than a slaughterhouse?
Hijinks ensue and the whole gang joins us for a fun, thrilling and wholesome ride down some blood covered hallways, freezers and intestine filled containers! You can buy your very own copy of House of the Dead: OVERKILL – Extended Cut right here so you can take home this Move and 3D compatible game!
More pics after the break.

High Velocity Bowling is seeing a retail release with all the DLC content as well as the Move support patch included in the disc. Price is $40 as is the case with most of the Move games in the launch window (RUSE and Aragorn’s Quest being the exceptions).
Check out IGN’s crappy review of Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds below:
Why is it crappy? Lets see. The reviewer says Hot Shots Golf could do with more content, such as more courses yet fails to mention exactly how many courses there actually are in the game. “A handful”. How many is that exactly?!
My next major issue with the ‘review’ is the online play in HSG. You can set up a one off game with 8 players all taking part or set up a tournament with up to 50 players taking part. Cool but what about the stuff that actually matters like the lobby or party system? What about the voice chat, if there is any? Can you send messages to people in the game? Is there an in-game friends list? WHAT IS THE MEANING OF LIFE FFS!!!!!
EDIT: Henning just reminded me that there is no mention of how many players can play locally, if that is even an option!
If people are going to review a game why don’t they actually review the damn thing instead of doing a brief overview of it, which is actually what that video ‘review’ is.
It’s not the first time I’ve had issues with a review from IGN or other major gaming sites. These guys are supposed to be professional games journalists right? Then why the hell can’t they do a proper review of a product!
Anyway, enough of my rant. This game is due out in the UK at the end of March under the name Everybody’s Golf: World Tour and I’ll hopefully be picking it up once I know more about the online play and exactly how many courses are in it.
The two demos I played of it (Japanese and NA versions) had already convinced me to buy it, and I know from experience that previous games have always been immense fun. The online side of things should add an extra dimension to it though.
I’m finding it really hard to get excited over a game that’s been delayed so many times. If it wasn’t for the pedigree of developers Free Radical Design (Timesplitters) then I would’ve stopped caring a long time ago.
Gamasutra are saying Haze is now due out May (that’s 2008 not 2009 ) so I hope the extra work done on Haze has been worth it.
To be honest, I’m quite sick of FPS at this moment in time. I’ve played CoD4, HL2: The Orange Box and Resistance over the past 6 months and beyond and I’ve had my fill of FPS. It’s an over saturated genre anyway, so it’s going to be interesting to see if Haze can make the grade.
