Mysterious third-person shooter NANO detailed

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2546 days, 6 hours, 44 minutes ago
Monday, June 07, 2010 7:08:46 AM GMT
Ever hear of a third-person action title named NANO? Yeah, neither have we. Until now. Reader EGGY Beggy sent us details from a recent online survey he took which detailed the Xbox 360, PlayStation, and PC title. The year is 2044, and NANO follows the story of Hugo Glass, a wealthy man who uses his riches to travel and explore the world. After defending a village in Thailand against corruption, Glass finds himself in jail, and he eventually finds himself wrapped in a "corporate conspiracy," and accused ... (more)

We don't hate 'I Hate Mountains,' a fan-made Left 4 Dead campaign

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2547 days, 5 hours, 20 minutes ago
Sunday, June 06, 2010 8:32:46 AM GMT
We've seen the Left 4 Dead SDK be used to create some truly impressive, zombie-infested levels, but this one might just take the cake. Three modders recently published a full-length, five-chapter campaign for Valve's original Zombocalypse survival sim, titled "I Hate Mountains" -- a quote from the game's lovable, vested contrarian, Francis.

Singularity trailer unveils even more features of the T.M.D.

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2547 days, 5 hours, 27 minutes ago
Sunday, June 06, 2010 8:26:17 AM GMT
It slices! It dices! It reduces your enemies to unrecognizable blobs of primordial goop! And now, thanks to the latest trailer for Raven and Activision's temporally unstable shooter Singularity, another feature of the handy Time Manipulation Device has been revealed: It grants the user complete control over the forces of gravity. It's official: This is the raddest glove ever. (more)

Shogun 2: Total War gets outed, old dude does calligraphy

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2549 days, 5 hours, 16 minutes ago
Friday, June 04, 2010 8:36:45 AM GMT
How do you promote a game about ancient Japan? One that's historically accurate, all gross and realistic? Plus, it's a turn-based strategy game! Furthermore, how does one market it to a crowd that might not care a whit for Japan's warring states period? (more)

VIDEO: FPS/TPS Using StarCraft II Engine

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2549 days, 6 hours, 26 minutes ago
Friday, June 04, 2010 7:27:02 AM GMT
While many StarCraft II fans are busy racking in beta time before Blizzard pulls the plug, others are checking out the upcoming game on a designer level using the included StarCraft II "Galaxy" Editor. One modder based in Denmark has taken StarCraft II editing to another level by creating first and third-person shooters. (more)

Shogun 2: Total War confirmed, will have hero units and siege battles

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2550 days, 5 hours, 25 minutes ago
Thursday, June 03, 2010 8:28:03 AM GMT
So much for secrecy -- the cat is out of the bag early, as Sega has revealed that, yes, Shogun 2: Total War is the next game in the historical war simulation series from The Creative Assembly. The game is a direct sequel to the first game in the Total War series (released 10 years ago, if you can believe that) and will have players fighting as competing warlords in 16th century Japan, working to reunite the country under one unified ruler. The game promises the "ultimate refinement of the original formu... (more)

Here is the evolution of LeChuck for Monkey Island 2: SE

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2551 days, 5 hours, 53 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 02, 2010 8:00:12 AM GMT
LeChuck is a classic villain. He has a singular and grandiose focus, always has a sinister plan to achieve his ends and repeatedly opens himself up to being defeated by a bumbling loser with luck on their side. It doesn't get anymore basic than that. And yet, he has a style and flair all his own. It's probably all of the voodoo. LucasArts Games released a group of images showing the development of LeChuck's look in the upcoming Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge Special Edition (more)

Preview: DC Universe Online

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2551 days, 5 hours, 54 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 02, 2010 7:58:42 AM GMT
DC Universe Online has been edging ever closer to a game we can actually play in our own homes, so much so that we got to play a bit of it a couple of weeks ago at a pre-E3 event Sony Online Entertainment held. The release is so near that it's okay to start anticipating it now. November is what we're hearing. You probably know the rub by now: You'll create a character which will be either a hero or villain in this online game for PC and PS3. Then you'll set off to do either good or evil, taking on missi... (more)

Tropico 3 dev announces The First Templar for PC, 360

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2551 days, 5 hours, 56 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 02, 2010 7:56:34 AM GMT
Haemimont Games, the developer of Tropico 3, and Kalypso Media have announced The First Templar, an action-adventure game coming to PC and Xbox 360 in early 2011. The game has players controlling one of two characters (or both!) -- a French Templar, and noble woman who has been pegged as a heretic. The team works together to uncover the mysterious of the Templars, in the process bringing to light the secrets of the Holy Grail. The game can be played cooperative, or you can go it alone. Co-op will suppor... (more)

Free Realms Meets Star Wars In Clone Wars Adventures

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2551 days, 6 hours, 14 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 02, 2010 7:39:18 AM GMT
Sony Online Entertainment draws back the curtain on Clone Wars Adventures, taking the successful formula established with its free-to-play, family-friendly MMO Free Realms to a galaxy far, far away. Check out the first trailer here! Rumored in March and due out this fall, Clone Wars Adventures is a massively-multiplayer online Star Wars game for kids, families, and casual gamers.

Sega Genesis Classics Now Available On Steam

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2551 days, 6 hours, 17 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 02, 2010 7:36:23 AM GMT
The first batch of downloadable Sega Genesis games for the PC has hit Steam, giving gamers a new way to spend $2.99 apiece on games like Ecco the Dolphin, Vectorman, and Sonic 3D Blast. Why worry about the ambiguous moral and legal issues surrounding emulation when you can just buy Sega Genesis titles for your PC? The first batch of Sega Genesis Classics is now available on Steam, with $2.99 scoring players legitimate copies of a number of games previously available only through the dozens of game compi...

Rumor: 'Alpha Protocol should have been scrapped'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2552 days, 5 hours, 35 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 01, 2010 8:18:10 AM GMT
An alleged developer from Obsidian has anonymously ranted about the spectacular failure Alpha Protocol, explaining some tantalizing revelations behind the game's development and claiming that it should have been canceled instead of the Aliens RPG. "I worked on this game (a fact of which I am not proud). I’m not here to defend it; I agree with all these reviews," claims the supposed developer. "There was a ton of work put into this game. The problem is that is was a ton of undirected work, or work on th... (more)

Is 'Kingdoms' Crytek's MMO or something else entirely?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2552 days, 5 hours, 49 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 01, 2010 8:03:49 AM GMT
If LinkedIn profiles are anything to bet the farm on, German game developer Crytek may be working on a massively multiplayer online title. At the very least, two employees directly mention it in their profiles, one writing that he is actively working on the infrastructure for "an MMO online game," the other (an ex-employee) having once mentioned he's working on a "Not announced Online MMO FPS." (The latter profile has since been updated to remove that specific reference.) (more)

Does Unreal Still Look Unreal? Not Anymore!

Tuesday, June 01, 2010 6:57:50 AM GMT
With the rapid pace of hardware and software advancement, games keep looking better and better. There's no question that games from previous decades look like silly puppet shows compared to what we get to see from Crysis, especially in light of this fantasy mod. It's startling, then, to look back on this cover of Next-Generation magazine and see it declare that, "Yes, this is an actual PC game screenshot ." (more)

Here's what H.A.W.X. 2 looks like

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2554 days, 6 hours, 26 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:27:18 AM GMT
Earlier this month, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2 was announced. Besides carrying the same ridiculous name as its predecessor, little about the flight game was mentioned. Jump forward to the present, where we now have a boatload of information. As someone who didn't play much of H.A.W.X., here's what seems most interesting to me as far as the sequel is concerned: mid-air refueling, which sounds both frustrating and somehow cool; controllable UAVs; and there's now taking off and landing as well.

Sad panda: Beyond Good & Evil 2 rumored to be canceled

Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:24:28 AM GMT
Word on the street is that Ubisoft's Beyond Good & Evil sequel has been canned. This attached to reports that the man behind the game, Michel Ancel is rumored to have left Ubisoft along with a "star developer" to form another studio in France. If true, Ancel hasn't updated his LinkedIn profile (the most important thing one can do when leaving an employer, of course), which still has him listed as a Creative Director at Ubisoft. (more)

Impressions: Call of Duty: Black Ops

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2554 days, 6 hours, 29 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:23:49 AM GMT
I know what you're thinking: Ugh, another Call of Duty. I'm not quite with you, but I do get it. Thankfully, what I saw of Treyarch's latest, Call of Duty: Black Ops, looks absolutely fantastic. More importantly, it looks to be different enough to actually stand out among all the other CoD titles. No, really. These impressions come from a session that was hands-off, mind you. But know that we did see quite a bit of game play, and our impressions will beat the hell out of watching a short teaser trailer ... (more)

I am legend: Left 4 Dead 2's 'Last Man on Earth' mutation

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2554 days, 6 hours, 34 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:19:07 AM GMT
No co-op teammates, no AI bots, and no Common Infected. Just you as the only Survivor left racing toward the safehouse before Special Infected get a chance to jump you. This is the newest weekly mutation for Left 4 Dead 2, "Last Man on Earth." It sounds -- more than any other game mode before it -- super risky, which is exactly what Valve should be aiming for. In my mind, it can play out one of two ways: it's either going to be painfully frustrating or tense beyond all belief. (more)

Review: Alpha Protocol

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2555 days, 4 hours, 36 minutes ago
Saturday, May 29, 2010 9:16:44 AM GMT
I have something of a reputation on staff for being the guy who takes in strays, the one who falls for the games that, while they may have a lot going for them, are in some way flawed. It's a fair representation and, considering it allows me to enjoy games that others may instantly write off, it's not something I'm necessarily ashamed of. (more)
