January was chock full of great releases, but who “won” the unusually jam-packed month? Well, you might be tempted to say “gamers,” since our plates were full all month long.
But you’d be wrong. Mass Effect 2 definitely won. No question.

EA has admitted that it “pissed a few people off” over the ability to kill terrorists for cash in the first Army of Two game.
However, according to EA Montreal boss Alain Tascan, the development team toned down Salem and Rios’ “over-the-top behavior” for the sequel.

EA’s put up an Army of Two site that lets you design your own Salem or Rios mask.
Once you’ve put your work of art together, you can check it out in 3D. Amazing.
As soon as Army of Two: The 40th Day ships on January 15, all you have to do is buy it et voila: your mask will be usable in-game.
Give it a waz. Check out our capture of demo play here.

Army of Two’s Salem and Rios are on their way to London to promote The 40th Day. Look.
Apparently the pair are to “speak to the press, sign copies of their game, ride the Army of Two battle bus and still find time to mix with some very special British celebrities.”
The game’s out on January 15. Expect more hilarity in the meantime. Watch us playing through the demo here.

Hit the link for 20 minutes of us playing Army of Two: The 40th Day, the demo of which released for both 360 and PS3 yesterday.
There’s a lot shown off in there: co-op controls, a morality system, weapons upgrades, a GPS thing, some buildings blowing up and two large men bumping chests together. It’s got it all.
Note: this is only playable with a live partner. No bots. Which is why it’s taken so long to get this live. Watch to the end and see Johnny’s connection crap out. It’s hilarious.
The game’s out on January 15.

In the new video for Army of Two: The 40th Day, gamers will get a glimpse of the storyline featured in the shooter which is expected to hit retail shelves in January.
Watch as our heroic duo walk around Shanghai enjoying the sights like typical tourists when suddenly, things start going horribly wrong.
A woman even gets smashed by a bus. At least it looks likes she does. She may get saved at the last minute though, in pure Rios and Salem style.
We’ll have to wait and see.
Watch it below the break.

Europeans didn’t like Army of Two, apparently. According to EA Montreal EP Reid Schneider, they really didn’t like it.
“We had this whole market in the US that thought the tone was cool, but in Europe everyone thought it was ridiculous and tasteless and a bunch of frat guys running around,” said the developer, speaking to GI.
“One of the things we learned was that we’re never going to be able to please both. So the way you interact with your partner and decisions you make – if you’re doing a lot of fist bumps – these influence the tone and the dialogue of your character. If your taking it on a more serious level then the game reacts seriously.”
With sequel Army of Two: The 40th Day releasing in January, Schneider added that the second game will allow players to set the tone through their own play-style.
“It’s really important for us tonally to appeal to the European audience because with the core audience in that territory, the game really turned them off so deeply that they couldn’t get to the game underneath.
“In a movie you’re distanced from those characters and you’re watching them, but in a game you are those characters and if they say something you find bothersome it rips you right out of the experience. We wanted to change the overall dialogue but also let the player tell their own a story a little bit more.”

Army of Two: The 40th Day’s director, Alex Hutchinson, has said that “player storytelling trumps game-authored story every time,” and that in the past, game makers aren’t so good at storytelling.
“We need to realize that we tell traditional stories very badly,” he told GamePro. “There are very few game stories that would get published in your average fiction magazine, and it’s not because we have bad writers.
“We enable other people’s stories, and that is so powerful and fresh that if we nail it… the sky’s the limit.”
Hutchinson chats more about storytelling ideals, and Army of Two: The 40th Day in the video posted below the break.
