preGame 24: Metroid: Other M, Kane and Lynch 2
Today on preGame, we'll take a look at Metroid: Other M, and Kane and Lynch 2.
It's been a while since we've featured a Wii title on preGame, but the latest installment in the Metroid franchise is a totally new take on the series and something we're excited to preview. Metroid: Other M combines 2D, 3D, third-, and first-person action in a way we haven't yet seen on the Wii.
Next we'll roam the gritty streets of Shanghai in Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days. A complete departure from the original, Dog Days also introduces a handheld shaky-cam effect to give the player the feeling of chaos. For a complete writeup of the game, make sure to check out our review on Crave.
There's more to share on today's episode including a new trailer for the highly anticipated Wii shooter Goldeneye 007. The Nintendo 64 reboot brings classic multiplayer action and a new single-player campaign. Next we'll debut a trailer for the XBLA and PSN Halloween RPG called Costume Quest, which is being developed by Tim Schafer and Double Fine (Brutal Legend, Psychonauts).
Finally, we'll show off an intense gameplay video from the upcoming survival horror title, Dead Space 2. We're reeling in anticipation over this one; and if this video is any indication of what the final product will provide, there's a lot to be excited about.
