Remember Black? Yea, that EA Criterion game that allowed you to blow shit up. Apparently the boys over at DICE built this software that allows you to that times two ya. Ya, that’s right. Blow more shit up. I have to admit, Black was very satisfying and I played through every difficulty setting got all items and secrets not because I wanted to but mostly because I just wanted to blow shit up - This looks like it will deliver more of that. Let me let DICE explain it all to you -
Well look at EA gettin all new and original on us gaming folk. Not one to be known for new ip’s, EA has decided to take a stab at the survival horror genre with their upcoming title Dead Space (droppin’ this october). And from the looks and premise so far, things are shaping up to be pretty interesting and worth a look. EA has gone as far as to say that they’re making quite possibly the scariest game yet. How scary you ask? How about not being able to pause the game what so ever! Not even when you got your menu screen. Damn..Im scared from that statement alone! A quick summary of the story goes like this: you play the role of an engineer by the name of Isaac Clarke who is sent on a mission to a deep space mining ship to fix their communications. Upon arrival it’s obvious that all hell has broken loose plus there’s this nasty ass alien infestation in which he has to survive and get the hell out. Im liking the look and design of the characters and the atmosphere they have going. I’ll def’ be looking forward to this and it’ll calm my horror game fix until res 5. Peep the newest trailer below:
Here’s an older trailer:
The game may not look good but the artwork does!
Now why didn’t i think of this one! This can be the Dragonball online game every fan has been waiting for, sure the fighting games have done their damage already but really guys no more please! How many times can you go through Goku’s story over and over again it feels like i was their when it all happen cell saga, buu saga etc., Seriously! Just think of all the possibilities you may face in this game new villains new heroes untold events made up on the fly. I’ll be keeping my eye’s out for this one and I’ll be sure to keep u guys posts when more news surfaces.
Click the image below to go straight to the Japanese site for SFIV. Minimum Japanese required to watch videos and pictures, but required to read the blogs. One of the new characters in the game has been posted on the site as well …
Ono-san made a good point back in his interview with 1up.com that the main 12 will be back and that’s a good thing but he can’t ignore the love that SF III has generated over the last ten years. Yea, it’s been that long. Minus our Jackie Chan jokes, we love the series and still fight over top players to this day. I mean, they still have competitions in Japan for that game, so bringing back one/two popular characters from that lot is not a bad thing.
More importantly though, gamers are also interested in what’s new, and so far two new faces have been added; Crimson Viper and Abel [above, courtesy IGN.com]. OH yea, he has a giant Cod-Piece to. Just thought I’d point that out since its the talk of the town with Ryu and Ken these days.
The red ring of death is pretty famous now for all the wrong reasons! One company that handles the warranties of Xbox 360 released some pretty interesting data on the defect rates of the console. It some pretty disturbing new and quite frankly, some one should take them to court for the faulty system. I personally know 4 people who own the system and has experienced the red rings of death. And not just once either! It’s a damn shame in this day and age after spending so much money on a system, we still can’t get a quality product. I don’t know, but between Windows Vista being a faulty OS and the chronic 360 break downs, some one needs to fire the quality control over at the gates camp! Check the link below for the full details!
The keep breakn’!
Of course I got my reserved copy of DMC4 for PS3. For those of you wondering, yes, I’ve almost cleared it and I am itching to play Nero Must Die/Dante Must Die mode because the game just isn’t hard enough.
Sega diffidently has the better characters for sure, it’s just well anything the fat plumber touches seems to turn to gold. Let’s see how this tennis game turns out it seems to be on the right track the only thing that can ruin this game is it’s controls. Which seems to be Sega’s biggest problem nowadays. I just hope they get it right this time, I believe this can be yet another title in favor of Nintendo’s gimmick control…. sorry 360/PS3.
That’s right you heard it square-enix the rpg god’s are dissing Microsoft’s Xbox 360 by shifting all attention towards the Wii, PS3 and DS. O well who needs rpg’s when you have a shit load of fps games….. right?
So we’ve all heard by now the big news about Master Yoda and Anakin Skywalker a.k.a Lord or Darth Vader which ever sounds more devastating to you, appearing in the new upcoming soul calibur game. Here is the video proof that it’s all true so sit back and watch yoda stop Astaroth raging axe with the force and Vader clash lightsaber with katana against Mitsurugi.
… and so goes the saying as gamers joke around about their recent inabilities to hit up an online multiplayer fiesta via Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare. What gives? Not sure really but perhaps Infinity Ward was not expecting the hits that their servers got after they released the beast that is CoD4 mid last week. Gamers are thoroughly unforgiving, especially when they are told they will get an A and they get a B. “Charlie don’t Surf” but apparently he can’t log on to a server either as the XBOX 360 owners and the PS3 owners moan from the lack of a proper online session. (more…)
It has been a while since I did a perspective look on things, so I decided to take a shot at it and see if I could pull together all good and the bad that’s happened from late this summer till now. I’m not sure where to start but E3 may be fitting. What a shit event that was, and clearly dominated by Sony. They needed to move that much clout to since the on-going rumor of that 40G PS3 is still being ushered around the net today. This a unit that was rumored for release in the UK. Kill it if you see it - it’s BS. Why? What’s the point in Sony releasing a SKU that will not support Guitar Hero, Eye Toy and other peripherals? If they do, God help them.
Sega doesn’t need any help convincing me that I need to get a copy of Yakuza 3 though. It would seem that the production expenses incurred by Team Ninja for Heavenly Sword haven’t swayed other producers to cut back on spending for game production. Sega has also announced that they to will use an all star cast to do the voice over [maybe mo-cap] for Yakuza. Perhaps Sony got offended and drop a Hakitori Yakuza Bomb on Home recently in fears of spending too much money on an ambitious thing. Funny thing about Home is that we didn’t know it was coming, and it was promised, went to beta, and went right back to the drawing board after beta testing started. Users who are lucky enough to take part in Home Beta were not happy with it and Sony, it would seem, in rare form, took that to heart; subsquently holding off the release of Home till it reaches mass appeal.
What, or who, is more appealing though is Masata-San, Maegawa Masata that is - head huncho over at our favorite shoot’em up [Great Movie!!!] house, Treasure. Having made impressive things like Ikaruga, Radiant Silvergun, and Guardian Heroes is not enough and so he has promised that previous and new titles will hit PSN soon enough [maybe]. Soon enough for Julian Eggerbrecht of Factor5 to start to pointing out the bad in Warhawk. Considering how Lair got trashed by yours truly, and several other game sites out there, its only fair he defend his title [a beautiful title that is]. What’s not beautiful is the following quote -
“I see motion-sensing as a complimentary, additional new step in terms of control … “
I’m dying to know why you can’t use the analog sticks then??? Better yet are those stick characters from Flow, who are due for an update. It will be interesting to see what they can come up with for my Hooka-smoking sessions. Dante may need more than a toke on the Hooka after that drop kick he got in the jaw from Neo; the new bad boy in DMC. If Capcom was trying to let us know that Neo was/is no Raiden, a la MGS, they have clearly made their point - this boy has problems and kicks some seeee’rious hass. Too bad you won’t get your Rumble on with Neo though. Maybe in Spring 2008 PS3 controllers will shake your world. Never saw a need for that feature but hey, my girlfriends like it. They all wonder if it were circular what it would mean …?
If you can say “Quick Response Time Is What I Got” ten times as fast, that’s how fast MS responded to those horrible-horrible Halo 3 discs that got shipped out by who knows who. We can’t really blame MS here, but hey everyone else is … sooooo they decided to fix the problem themselves [suspicious right?]. MS swiftly provided a return policy to its faithful in the form of a full replacement, no extra charge. It would be shameful not to mention that the peace of gaming greatness cost
$140.00 [e’Note: $69.99] Halo SE Sets. Hmm, $140.00? So I guess a lot of people will be buying those GTX cards after all?
If that’s a trend for game prices then titles better look as hot as FF XIII Versus. The new FF XIII currently has a very strong hold on the Top Ten List over at Famitsu Magazine as the second Most Anticipated Game. Trumped by Dragon Quest-Sama of course. What does it all mean? Hell if I know, especially after those play tests comments about White Knight Story. I’m really impressed with the lush environments in that game - it may set a standard.
The results for that play test have all been positive and its good to hear that FF won’t be the only thing to go home early for. Still, they can’t release that Jericho Demo soon enough for my tastes, even though its due Thursday of this week. I just want to play it so badly. Its’ no crysis killer but the enemy designs in that game appeals to my darker nature and hopefully yours.
Don’t get me wrong there are tons other great looking games that we don’t know about yet. No not Crysis. No one will be able to play that thing without having deep pockets in my opinion. . I’m talking about Dead Space, a new title by Electronic Arts that may just turn your eyes away from Jericho for a minute or two. As long as it has nothing to do with that yet another telekinesis and time pausing powers, I’m good. Check out the site. What’s that? Master Chief you say … never heard of ‘em. Good co-op stuff though. ^_- Laterz.
I love these guys … and of course their top tens are great .. but even more so when they give you reasons to ignore Master Chief!
That’s right b1t7he$!
