Activision is kicking off the celebration for Bonds’ 50th anniversary today with the launch of Eurocom’s 007 Legends for 360 and PS3. The shooter includes an overarching storyline that connects select encounters from five different Bond films (Goldfinger, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Moonraker, Licence to Kill, and Die Another Day), along with a post-launch DLC mission based on the upcoming movie Skyfall, set to launch on November 9 on PSN and on November 20 on Live.
Gamers wanting a touch of horror in their co-op action will be able to take a different kind of trip to Silent Hill today with the release of Silent Hill: Book of Memories for PS Vita. The action-RPG allows players to team up and explore different Otherworlds, solving puzzles, fighting enemies, and battling through Nightmares, as they alter their own past by editing the memories scrawled throughout the mysterious book.
After eight years, Doom 3 returns to store shelves today as Doom 3 BFG Edition. The enhanced re-release features updated versions of the 2004 original and its Resurrection of Evil expansion, as well as a new eight-level chapter called The Lost Missions. Old and new content alike support 3D, improved rendering and lighting, a new checkpoint save system, and 5.1 surround sound. As an added bonus, the collection also includes classic versions of Doom and Doom II.
Sega has released two new screens from Gearbox Software’s upcoming xenomorph-tastic shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines. The latest shots are from New York Comic-Con 2012, but we’ve tossed in a few from this year’s PAX as well because two is never enough when we’re talking about Aliens.
Things are about to get weird(er). Rising Star Games plans to send Special Agent Francis York Morgan back into the field next year in Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut for PS3. The update to the 2010 surreal psychological horror title will feature updated visuals, “reworked” controls, a new scenario from game director Swery, and support for upcoming downloadable content. Formerly a 360 exclusive, PS3 gamers will finally get a chance to experience the most Twin Peaks-ish game on the market.
