I was sort of eagerly awaiting this game and it seems to have crept up on, well, pretty much everyone. From the devs behind Star Wars: Battlefront comes Lord Of The Rings: Conquest. If you’ve played the aformentioned Star Wars title, then you know what to expect, or at least you think you do. Hit the jump for more. Continue reading

This is the funniest story of the month by far. EA have announced today that they’ve got Barrack Obama and Sarah Palin coming as downloadable characters for Mercenaries 2. We know that Palin is actually Tina Fay (dressed in Palin-esque attire), as for Obama, we don’t know. Could it be another advertising deal with EA?

This is great, just a shame they’re not in a better game. Hit the jump for the trailer. Continue reading

Just a quick heads up to say that the trophy patch for Mercenaries 2 is now available to download in Europe. It’ll probably get to Noth America sometime today, if not we’ll update the post. I think PS3Fanboy’s put it best saying “it’s raining trophies right now”. Personally, I wouldn’t waste my time on this. Go for something a whole lot better like BioShock. If you’ve got the game, then fair enough go for the trophies it might make the game a bit more tolerable to play.

Mercenaries 2 has been seen as a monumental flop and is probably up for biggest disapointment of the year, games wise. It had all that hype and lived up to none of it. Well for those who saw past the reviews and bought the game, it might be about to pay off…slightly. EA have announced that the game is being patched with trophy support and, thanks to PS3Fanboy, we have the list. It’s after the jump as usual. Please beware there are SPOILERS butr i’m sure no one is playing Mercs 2 for it’s story. Continue reading

Although this making of Pandemics Mercenaries 2 trailer has been around for a few days now, I’m posting it up here just incase anyone has missed it, also mainly because I’d like you to share my suffering as since the first time I viewed it I can’t get the dam song out of my head. Enjoy.

Mercenaries 2 Demo Coming Soon? by Anthony Barlow

I’ve just had a tip off from an anonymous source that EA’s sandbox shooter ‘Mercenaries 2: World In Flames’ will be getting a demo on XBL and PSN “sometime in the near future”. I played the game at M Festival last month and it did little to impress me or make me want the game. The game has been reviewed by IGN’s Hilary Goldstien who gave the game a 7.9 (a ‘good’ on IGN’s scale) Is it possible that the build I played was fairly outdated? It’s certainly possible and would explain the sheer amount of bugs, glitches and abnormalities I found when playing.

If a demo is coming it’s likely to come next week but you never know it could drop on Thursday. Next week is more likely if my source is to be believed.

If EA do release a demo I will most definitely do some new, updated impressions. It seems quite likely that a demo is coming and EA seem to put out demos for everything so I think we can expect it but this is still going down as rumor for now.
