Madden 13 Wii U to be launch title, won't have physics

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1816 days, 18 hours, 37 minutes ago
Saturday, August 04, 2012 10:02:35 AM GMT
If you read my E3 preview of Madden 13, you know that I’m tenuously excited for it. If you haven’t, well, I’m tenuously excited for it. The reason behind this cautious optimism is that Madden has finally implemented a physics engine in this latest installment, noticeably changing the way it feels.

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1816 days, 18 hours, 50 minutes ago
Saturday, August 04, 2012 9:49:42 AM GMT
The first Bit.Trip Runner had a generally "retro" look, with bonus levels that imitated the Atari 2600's Pitfall. Runner 2 has its own pixelated levels, as revealed in this latest trailer and screens. It appears that Gaijin Games has shifted its reference point a few years into the future. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1817 days, 20 hours, 36 minutes ago
Friday, August 03, 2012 8:03:21 AM GMT

It looks like there's now a chance that Crysis 3 will appear on the Wii U, despite comments on the subject from Crytek's creative director Rasmus Hoejengaard in May. Producer Mike Reid told CVG that's it's no longer a case of "no chance," but it's certainly not definite either. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1827 days, 20 hours, 8 minutes ago

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1831 days, 19 hours, 52 minutes ago
Friday, July 20, 2012 8:47:43 AM GMT
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 isn't above adding a few gimmicks to sell more copies – some may even call its tactics "fanservice" – but with the Wii U, its additions feel a little more innocent. Tekken leader Katsuhiro Harada describes one Wii U-specific mode for Tag Tournament 2 to Gamesradar: (more)

With the success of Mortal Kombat, it's hardly shocking that Ed Boon's NetherRealm Studios is already at work on another fighting game, Injustice: Gods Among Us. But Boon wouldn't mind getting away from the fighting game rigmarole, granted Injustice "does well." (more)

Little Inferno trailer warms hearts, burns stuff

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1840 days, 20 hours, 40 minutes ago
Wednesday, July 11, 2012 7:59:23 AM GMT
The first trailer for Tomorrow Corporation's Little Inferno depicts a game that looks simultaneously entertaining and super depressing. In order to warm up an increasingly cooler world, you ... throw as many toys as you can into a fireplace. That's the premise, anyway. This is just the first teaser, so all the details of how you'll burn up toys have yet to be discussed. (more)

Nintendo's been taking baby steps into the 21st century for a while now, but is taking perhaps its first major big-boy walk with the news that unified accounts are coming to Wii U.

Voice acting in RPGs may be more trouble than it's worth

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1843 days, 20 hours, 3 minutes ago
Sunday, July 08, 2012 8:37:10 AM GMT
Jennifer Hale, Nolan North and Troy Baker, among others, have become video game celebrities for their voice acting – deservedly so, given how entertaining they can be as characters like Commander Shepard or Nathan Drake. Recorded speech has become a significant component of most all games, notably RPGs, having grown steadily since the shift to CD-ROM games in the mid-1990s. Yet their importance isn't always apparent.

Friday, July 06, 2012 7:35:01 AM GMT
Tantalus Media makes mostly portable and licensed titles these days (try Cars 2: Mater-national Championship for the Game Boy Advance), but their 40+ game history had them working on bigger stuff in the past for consoles, like Wipeout 2097 for the Saturn, or Area 51 on the PlayStation. And now it seems that they're working on something bigger yet again, this time for the Wii U. (more)
