Get a small taste of SimCity starting January 25
The SimCity beta will run from January 25 – January 28, EA has announced. Those who previously signed up are already in consideration for the beta, and limited slots are still available for late applicants. To be considered, sign up here by 2.00am, GMT on January 21. The beta consists of a “one hour slice of the game.”
SimCity will be using the all new GlassBox engine. Two other new features are a multiplayer component and finite resources. This version will be the first to feature full online play since Maxis’s SimCity 2000 Network Edition allowing for regions to house multiple cities from different players. Regions can alternatively be set to private for solo play. Players will be required to be logged into EA’s Origin service to play the game, including when playing single player. (Diablo 3 DRM style)
SimCity will be available March 5 on PC.
God of War: Ascension multiplayer getting a beta
Sony has announced that it will hold a multiplayer beta for God of War: Ascension . In a post on the PlayStation Blog, director Todd Papy revealed that the beta will be launching “in the near future” and will be available first to PlayStation Plus subscribers. He also hinted that there may be “a few other secret inroads.”
Papy also revealed details about the game’s multiplayer, including the idea of pledging your allegiance to the Gods. Players will choose from Zeus, Hades, Ares or Poseidon, and each one will offer “a unique combat play-style and devastating abilities in battle.” Players will be able to unlock magic abilities, armor, weapons, mystical relics and other treasures as they level up.
Following my stint in Diablo 3 I found a beta-weekend invite for Torchlight 2 in my inbox. Having thoroughly enjoyed the original, it was imperative that I play the promising sequel. I was nowhere near letdown by Runic’s effort; in fact I was thrilled by what I found. I’ve played dungeon crawlers since the original Diablo, and this game brought me back to my roots in a very traditional, yet enhanced, way.
Torchlight 2: Creating a hero to quell the evil
Before you can begin your loot-whoring shenanigans you must construct your hero. Torchlight has increased its class roster, giving you a choice between 4 different archetypes; including the familiar feeling Embermage, Berserker, and Outlander; and introducing the Engineer. Each class introduces a unique fighting style and skill tree. From there you are given the opportunity to customize your hero’s face and hair, followed by Torchlight’s most appreciated feature: the pet. Torchlight 2 has quadrupled its stable of pets, straying from the dog and cat route and trading it in for a menagerie. Torchlight 2’s pets include: three dogs; the Papillion, Bulldog, and a more exotic wolf. If you prefer your companions to be of the feline persuasion; also offered are the Cat and Panther. Rounding out the roster of animals are the “Wildcard” options such as; the Ferret, a Hawk, or the dragon-like Chakawary.

Ok, so I suck at RTS games. Like, really bad. When playing Starcraft 2, my buddy is already rocking Goliaths while I’m just getting ready to produce marines. However, I can more than hold my own in an FPS (though I’m still not as great as I think I am). So, you can imagine it would get awkward when my friend is craving to play an RTS while I’m leaning more towards an FPS. Do you see where I’m going with this? Well, while we were at PAX East, we were asked to stop by the Natural Selection 2 booth run by the development team Unknown Worlds. At first, I didn’t know what to make of what I was watching the other attendees play. Ten minutes later, I was engrossed by the depth and originality of Natural Selection 2, so much so that I vowed to buy the game come next paycheck.
Natural Selection 2 is a perfect blend of the RTS and FPS genres.
