Game Review

The simple equation to receive enjoyment out of EA Montreal’s Army of Two: The 40th Day involves the following: an enjoyment for guns, pleasure in watching a bro-mance blossom, and taking joy out of a terrible amount of tedious gameplay. If those three factors are right up your alley, then, hey, might as well join the firing brigade of fans who can’t get enough of cooperative... Read Review

MEDIA: Army of Two: The 40th Day PSP Trailer

Army of Two: The 40th Day is one of many major, major titles coming early next year, but what few remember is that the game has a PSP version on the way as well. Here's a trailer! A demo for the game will be released early next month, to boot. Looks pretty swell, kind of a throwback to classic top-scrolling arcade shooters of old. Read More

EA Montreal to Shift Away from Wii, Towards Core Titles

While the Wii has worked out pretty well for EA's Montreal division, it looks like even they want to move away from the casual-focused console. According to an interview with EDGE, the company wants to create a new focus on core titles. "The Wii market is a little bit unpredictable these days," said General Manager Alain Tascan, "We're going to see how Christmas is going to do and while with the Wii we have had very successful titles, we are going to focus on big, blockbuster-type titles. It doesn't mean that we are going to abandon the Wii, but as a studio we want to be ready for new challenges." The first of these challenges will be Army of Two: The 40th Day, set to release early next year. Read More

Army of Two Originally a "Buddy Cop" Type of Game; 40th Day Responds to Fist-Bumping

Army of Two is a game which means different things to different people, EA Montreal's Alex Hutchnsion revealed to That VideoGame Blog. "Everyone at first kinda thought it was a Gears of War clone," he noted, "but I really don't think that it is. I think the reason it sold well is that the core fantasy is very strong, the idea of you and me against the world, you and your best friend." While similar to Epic's Xbox 360 blockbuster, it was the focus on cooperative gameplay which helped it to stand apart. "I don't have 40 friends to go on a raid with, or play a big online game with," Hutchnsion said. "But I have 1 best friend that plays the game and for me that intimate experience is really powerful. I thought they were brave to go after that in the first game." Read More

Media: Army of Four? Army of Two: 40th Day - Extraction Trailer

Army of Two: 40th Day is no longer a two player game. Extraction mode will be playable on the day it comes out if you pre-order the game. If you don't pre-order, you will have to wait about a month after the game hits stores in June. Lastly, what's with the recent popularity with this type of game mode? Though this idea is slightly over used, I can't really see it hindering the experience in any way. It seems like a welcome addition to the multiplayer, and adding a four player mode to a primarily two player game will definitely make it stand out. Read More

Media: Army of Two: The 40th Day at the Office

Many offices try to spice things up around the office by having competitions, Hawaiian shirt days or even Nerf gun battles. The folks at EA seem to have a different way of adding a little variety to the office. Not gonna lie, I don't know if I would fit in the elevator riding up with Salem and Rios with all of their combat gear on. On the flipside, I would love for those two hooligans to get me a red stapler. There isn't a solid release date yet for the game, but it is expected to come out sometime in December. Read More
