Secret Files 3, Lucius trailers kick off gamescom highlights

Another convention, another six thousand or so new videos! Well, not quite, but they'll soon add up before all is said and done. With gamescom being held in Germany this week, the trailers have started rolling out en masse. First up are Secret Files 3 and Lucius, with more still to come.

Secret Files 3

Nina and Max are back for a third adventure, this time ready to face their biggest challenge yet: marriage. But trouble follows this pair wherever they go, and as the first teaser for the new game suggests, once again they'll soon be up to their necks in bad buys, explosions, shadowy characters and all-around mayhem. Not that adventure gamers would have it any other way.


Lucius

You can hold off the devil for a while, but he's coming nonetheless in Lucius. The game that puts you in the six-year old shoes of the titular son on Satan has been pushed back to early 2012, but the new trailer offers a more in-depth look at the evil awaiting when it finally arrives. Lucius is "equipped with supernatural powers, Lucius starts off to a blood-flooding tour of horror through his house, using hell's powers of telekinesis and mind control to orchestrate deadly accidents that will minimize the population of the manor one by one by one..."

Lucius feels much closer to the Hitman series than the adventure genre according to some previews I’ve stumbled upon.
Not that it’s a bad thing, I love Thief/Hitman, but… apparently, it’s not an adventure game.

Hm, I see what you mean with SF3 being more like SF2 but in my opinion this is more of a teaser trailer than an actual trailer which probably won’t be released this year anymore. And from what I can make out of the few shots that were shown plotwise I think it’ll be more like SF1. But we’ll see who’s right. In ay case it’s better than one of those trailers where they just put music under characters strolling around a bit and than call it a trailer. Also I don’t think you can expect TLJ3 before The Secret World is finished which if I am to believe the newsletters I get is not going to take very long anymore.

I am not sure about SF3 after viewing the trailer. SF2 was a so-so game and this looks to be more of the same. Lucius on the other hand seems to bring forth an original premise and looks kind of like Fahrenheit. Can’t wait to see it in action! Hmm… I wonder… Any mention of The Longest Journey 3 on Gamescom? Dreamfall left us all with a gaping cliff-hanger, and I believe I am not alone if I proclaim that the hordes of fans want to see the end of the story! Ah, the memories…

OMG! The trailer of SF3 looks amazing! When the “romantic screenshots” were first posted I thought it was a joke from the developers but it seems their really moving the Nina-Max relationship ahead this time. Great move imo. Graphics look stunning and if you look at 0.46 there’ll gonna be some plot elements from Tunguska in it. Also the cover is awesome! Honestly can’t wait for this game to be released. Hope it’s Jannuary 2012 not December 2012.
