OnLive Releases Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath & Project Snowblind
Hey everyone! It’s that time of the week again where we cover the games added to OnLive. This week is a smaller update than last week, with only 2 PlayPack releases , but don’t let the quantity disappoint you – these are quality games. Here’s the rundown:
Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath
In this action game the player takes on the role of ‘The Stranger’, a tough-as-nails bounty hunter who is part animal, part Clint Eastwood, who must somehow scrape together 20,000 ‘moolah’ for a mysterious operation.
The game features both first person (for precision aiming and takedowns) and third person (for special melee takedowns and attacks) which you will use to collect your bounties and turn them in for moolah. Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath also features something called GameSpeak, which allows you to converse with the locals and gather information for your mission.
I haven’t had a chance to play this entry in the Oddworld series yet, but I’ve wanted to so I’m looking forward to firing this one up when I’m done writing this article.
Project Snowblind is an epic first person shooter game with an interesting history. It was originally developed to be a multiplayer-focused 3rd game in the Deus Ex series, “Deus Ex: Clan Wars” but after the relatively disappointing sales of Deus Ex: Invisible War the game was set in it’s own universe, but it remains a spiritual successor to the Deus Ex franchise regardless.
In this game you assume the role of Nathan Frost of the Liberty Coalition. After being injured on a mission, Nathan is injected with experimental nano-tech augmentations turning him into a super soldier. I’m sure you can guess where things go from there.
So there we have it, 2 solid titles added to the already bursting-at-the-seams PlayPack. I wonder what the folks at OnLive have in store for us next week?
