Hunted Game Guide, Pt. 2: Enemy Infiltration

We return today with another blog post from Michael Searle, the author of Hunted’s Official Game Guide. Read below for to learn more about the enemies you’ll face, and some pointers on how to thwart them.

Take it away, Michael…

Your first few steps in the Town of Dyfed introduce you to a Wargar. Within seconds it dines on something “unappetizing,” and its actions put the monster at the bottom of your friends list. Moments later you meet more Wargar, and Caddoc and E’lara battle with supernaturally-strong Wargar wielding swords, brandishing shields, slinging bows, sporting armor, and quaffing magic liquid.

Feeling overpowered by Wargar? Prima’s official Hunted: The Demon’s Forge guide can quickly focus your attention on what’s important…

Hunted releases next week, and to get you ready for your adventure, we’ve got blog posts from Prima game guide author, Michael Searle. In his first post, Michael reveals what you can expect from the guide — from co-op strategies to discovering all the game’s secret paths.

Stay tuned to the blog this week for more on Hunted’s game guide. Here’s Michael…

Weekend Update: RAGE, Skyrim, Hunted, and Prey 2

While our BFG event was more than two weeks ago, there’s plenty of new coverage to share for RAGE, Skyrim, Prey 2, and Hunted.

Don’t miss last Friday’s GTTV episode, which featured a new Skyrim interview with Todd Howard, as well as a first look at RAGE’s Subway Town. Catch both segments at GameTrailers.com.

If podcasts are your thing, Giant Bomb has 40 minutes of discussion on Skyrim, RAGE, and Prey 2. While I highly recommend the entire podcast, the BFG coverage starts just before the 50-minute mark. Elsewhere, Shacknews’ Garnett Lee shares his Skyrim impressions in episode 57 of Weekend Confirmed (scan ahead to the 33:25 mark of the podcast), and also divulges on why he’s so excited for RAGE in episode 58. Head to iTunes to download all three podcasts.

More after the break…
