MLB 12 The Show has hit store shelves for the PS3 and PS Vita. The long-running series continues with support for the Move in all modes, cross-platform save functionality between the PS3 and Vita, enhanced graphics and mechanics, and TruBroadcast presentations. The new cross functionality includes all of the core components, including Exhibition, and Home Run Derby, with the ability to share save files, allowing for The Show progression to be moved between systems. In addition, ’12 adds an entirely new mode, Diamond Dynasty.
EA has announced that the next entry in the Medal of Honor series, Medal of Honor Warfighter, will launch on October 23. In development at Danger Close Games, Warfighter is a follow-up to 2010’s Medal of Honor reboot and sees the Tier 1 Operatives leaving Afghanistan and taking on assignments around the world. As Tier 1 Operator “Preacher,” players will have to play out missions based on real-life events, such as fighting pirates off the coast of Somalia and rescuing hostages in the Philippines. Warfighter was written by Operatives while deployed overseas, which EA is hoping will help to deliver “an aggressive, gritty and authentic experience that puts gamers in the boots of the world’s most precise and disciplined warriors.”
It’s time for the millions of Commander Shepards to strap up and get ready because Mass Effect 3 is now available for the 360, PC, and PS3. The trilogy-ending release thrusts players into a massive galactic war as mankind and their allies battle the ancient Reapers. Newcomers will get a chance to meet a large cast of squadmates while series vets will be able to take their old troop into combat once more, for the final time. New to the series is the Galaxy at War system, a co-op online component that ties into the single-player game. Two iOS apps are also available, Mass Effect Infiltrator ($6.99), a cover-based third-person shooter, and Mass Effect 3 Datapad (free). As with Galaxy at War, progress made in the apps will be reflected in the main campaign.
The first of two crossover fighters from Capcom and Namco Bandai is ready to deliver some fist-to-the-gut action with the release of Street Fighter X Tekken for the 360 and PS3. The brawler features 38 characters from both franchises, and is based on a refined and expanded version of the Street Fighter IV fighting engine. A new Gem system has been introduced, allowing players to customize their fighters, as well as the on and offline four-player free-for-all Scramble Mode. Capcom also noted that all future upgrades will be available via DLC and that this “will be the only disc-based version consumers will need to own.”
