The movie is out July 3, fellow Spider-man fans. I have a love/hate relationship with Spider-man games, so I never look forward to them as much as some people do. One thing I’ll say about this one is that it looks nice. Will it play well? Time shall tell.

PS3, PC, Xbox 360
A new original title, military style. I would say there are enough of these games floating around, but one could say that for RPGs and third person shooters. So!

That is your line.)
Amazon: Spec Ops: The Line is a new original title from 2K Games that features provocative and gripping Third-Person modern military Shooter gameplay designed to challenge players’ morality by putting them in the middle of unspeakable situations where unimaginable choices affecting human life must be made. Features include, a gripping, storyline reminiscent of Apocalypse Now and Heart of Darkness but set in a ruined Dubai, tactical squad-based Delta Force gameplay throughout a horizontally and vertically oriented world, devastating sandstorms which can be used in combat, a variety of multiplayer modes and maps, and deep support featuring two factions.
It’s been 6 months since Dubai was wiped off the map by a cataclysmic sandstorm. Thousands of lives were lost, including those of American soldiers sent to evacuate the city. Today, the city lies buried under sand, the world’s most opulent ruin. Now, a mysterious radio signal is picked-up from Dubai, and a Delta Recon Team is sent to infiltrate the city. Their mission is simple: locate survivors and radio for evacuation. What they find is a city in the grip of war. To save Dubai, they’ll have to find the man at the heart of its madness – Col. John Konrad.

If you’re a level 100 Blacksmith, like my
