PTOM’s cover may be looking a bit more ragged than usual this month, but we think it perfectly represents the slice ’n’ dice awesomeness of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. We’ve got exclusive screenshots and chat with Hideo Kojima, Atsushi Inaba, and other members of the Platinum Games/Kojima Productions dev team to get the inside scoop on this new more action-oriented turn for the Metal Gear franchise. And FYI: The game’s slicing mechanic works suh-weeeeet!
We also take an in-depth look at 2K Games’ new combat shooter Spec Ops: The Line. Yes, another combat shooter. But Spec Ops focus on the dark, mind-twisting psychological effects of war is intriguing and could offer a new twist for the familiar genre. On a lighter note, we take a look at 20 Insane Trophies that we dare you to attempt. ’Cause there’s no way we’re ever gonna manage to earn ’em. Let us know how you do.
In our early looks and previews, we’ve go info on God of War: Ascension (OMG! Kratos!), PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale, Crysis 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Dishonored, DmC: Devil May Cry, Resident Evil 6… Can we stop now? Is that enough gaming goodness to suffice? Well, don’t worry about it—there’s more.
Rockstar Game’s Max Payne 3 leads off this month’s review section, which also includes our final verdicts on big titles like Starhawk, Prototype 2, Dragon’s Dogma, Dirt Showdown, and Mortal Kombat for Vita. But the surprise performers this month? Check out our thoughts on Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and two notable PSN games: Closure and the first episode of The Walking Dead. Not a bad month for games at all…
It’s also not a bad month to pick up the July issue of PTOM, arriving on newsstands on Tuesday, June 5 (The first day of E3!).
