Though the X-Com series is well-regarded for its tactical, turn-based strategy gameplay, 2K Games Australia has decided to go in a completely different direction with the latest entry in the franchise. Developed by 2K Marin, the team behind BioShock2, the new X-Com will be a first-person shooter.

X-Com, the classic 90’sturn-based strategy game pitting mankind against alien invaders, is set to make a comeback as a first-person shooter, courtesy of the 2K studios behind BioShock 2.

Gears of War 3, dubbed by the publisher to be the “biggest blockbuster game of 2011,” will be the “explosive finale to the landmark Gears of War trilogy” and will be available exclusively on the Xbox 360 in April 2011.

Epic Games will once again be handling development duties on Gears of War 3, which “plunges players into a harrowing tale of hope, survival and brotherhood” to complete the current story arc for the series. The last human city has been destroyed and the last remaining survivors are stranded, leaving Marcus and his comrades in a race against the clock to save the human race from extinction.

The new game has playable female soldiers in it! Don’t worry, it’s still jam-packed with men who look like refrigerators, and mellow music like the famous Gears of War trailer which used the song ‘Mad World’ the sound track from the movie ‘Donnie Darko’  (in this case, Sun Kil Moon’s “Heron Blue”.)

Watch the first trailer and ogle at the first screenshots for Gears of War 3 below. Titled ‘Ashes to Ashes,’ the trailer was created in Unreal Engine 3 by the same team behind the Gears of War video spots and captures a three-way battle between Delta Squad, the Locust Horde and the new Lambent.

MTV Games is about to drop Green Day: Rock Band,
the franchise’s second band-specific game after last year’s awesome The
Beatles: Rock Band
. The game boasts 47 playable songs — take a look at the full list after
the jump, exclusively at the Music Mix. At its core you’ll notice three
albums from Green Day’s discography. The songs will be split among three different venues signifying
different periods during the band’s career. The American Idiot
tracks are played at the National Bowl in Milton Keynes, where they
recorded their live DVD Bullet in a Bible. More than a dozen
tracks will be played at the Fox Theatre in the band’s home-town of
Oakland. Finally, songs from Dookie will be played at the
“Warehouse” — a mock-up of the “house parties and squats” at which the
band got its start.

Looks damn good to us! Any chance of free tickets to the premiere Jerry?
