Orcs Must Die, Spider-Man: Edge of Time, and NBA 2K12!
It looks like basketball season may not start on time this year as the NBA lockout goes into full effect. However, you can still enjoy some basketball in video game form with NBA 2K12! Joining NBA 2K12 this week is Orcs Must Die and Spider-Man: Edge of Time.
Orcs Must Die!
Orcs Must Die is very much like a tower defense game, one where you must place defensive structures that will attack an incoming army and prevent them from reaching their goal. However, the twist is that you will be playing as a War Mage who is in the thick of the action. Instead of a top-down view typical of tower defense game, you will play in third-person view and will need to move your character through the level. As the War Mage, you can summon defensive structures to protect your fortress. You can even jump into the fray and fight with your sword, crossbow, or magic!
Spider-Man: Edge of Time
Spider-Man of past and future team up in this time-traveling adventure game. The evil scientist Walker Sloan of 2099 has traveled back in time to use future knowledge and technology to rule the world. Along the way, he has even arranged for the untimely death of the original Spider-Man. However, Miguel O'Hara, aka Spider-Man 2099, has also traveled back in him and is fighting to undo the damage done by the evil scientist. Play to save Peter Parker and save the day.
For the first time ever in the series, NBA 2K will be in 3D for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Of course, you'll need a 3DTV and the special glasses in order to play in 3D. However, yo won't need anything special to enjoy the new modes in the game, such as NBA's Greatest mode. This mode features some of NBA's legendary players, such as Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan. You can also make your own legend in Creating a Legend mode.
