Remedy: Long Alan Wake development was advantageous

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2744 days, 19 hours, 59 minutes ago
Sunday, May 16, 2010 7:57:10 AM GMT
Alan Wake, as we all know, took ten thousand years to develop. Much of its dev time was spent with very little public demonstration, and the game maintained a place in the public consciousness through pure hype alone. We asked developer Remedy if that was a help or hindrance, and whether it was difficult keeping the game under wraps. (more)

Remedy: Survival horror doesn't have to go away

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2744 days, 20 hours, 2 minutes ago
Sunday, May 16, 2010 7:54:26 AM GMT
You could be forgiven for thinking that Alan Wake was a horror game, but Remedy maintains that its spooky torch adventure is not trying to be Silent Hill or Resident Evil. "To us it’s a thriller," explains writer Mikko Rautalahti. "We’re not really about the scares as such, I think; it’s not something we’re consciously attempting. Fear is a challenging emotion to induce in video games. Reading the reviews, I’ve been kind of surprised by how many people think it’s a genuinely scary experience. It wasn't... (more)

Shank dev and writer talk characters, story, and dating

Sunday, May 16, 2010 7:52:21 AM GMT
How does one go from writing scripts for Bratz to Sony's high-successful, mature-audiences-only God of War? For game writer Marianne Krawczyk, it was simply a matter of knowing the right people at the right time. A friend was an Associate Producer on the God of War project, and doing what writers do, she asked if they were looking for any writers. A meeting with God of War director David Jaffe later, she had her first videogame-writing gig. (more)

War for Cybertron gets hot new video, hot new robots

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2744 days, 20 hours, 8 minutes ago
Sunday, May 16, 2010 7:48:29 AM GMT
Activision has sent over the latest assets for Transformers: War for Cybertron. Firstly, there's a brand new video outlining the game's story. Key notes involve the introduction of Bumblebee and Starscream's backstory. As a huge fan of Starscream (and his Twitter account), I'm really anxious to see what they do with everybody's favorite robotic backstabber. (more)

The inner workings of the PlayStation Move - Destructoid

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2744 days, 20 hours, 12 minutes ago
Sunday, May 16, 2010 7:44:43 AM GMT
Our good friends over at the PlayStation blog have quietly been publishing neat developer diaries featuring Sony's small magical black wand, the PlayStation Move. It goes without saying, Sony's new marketing approach and branding of the PlayStation 3 has radically changed, gone is the creepy crying baby in the white room -- replaced with the hilarious Kevin Butler. Sony's classic practices of keeping things tight lipped and tucked away in their secret room of tricks, seems to be absent and shunned away b... (more)

Nurburgring complex will make an appearance in GT5

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2744 days, 20 hours, 26 minutes ago
Sunday, May 16, 2010 7:30:57 AM GMT
No one knows when Gran Turismo 5 is actually coming out, but we do know this: the famous Nürburgring racing complex will be playable in the game. All three of Nürburgring's tracks -- the Grand Prix, the Nordschliefe, and the Nürburgring 24 Hours course -- are being included as part of the 70+ courses in the game. The Nordschliefe track appeared in Gran Turismo 4 and Gran Turismo PSP, but this is the first time either of the other two tracks will show up in the series. Check out eight screenshots in the g...

Future MAG DLC may include new mode, extra character slot

Sunday, May 16, 2010 7:29:05 AM GMT
Ahh, surveys. They're fascinating glimpses into the ideas that a company is considering. Joystiq reports that Sony has been floating one around asking about potential additions to Zipper Interactive's hugongous FPS, MAG. What additions might those be? First off is a game mode referred to as "Interdiction," in which 128 players on two teams fight for control of three neutral points on the map as opposed to one team attacking and the other defending.

The wacky cameos in Lost Planet 2 aren't about to stop anytime soon, it seems. Word on the street is that PlayStation 3 owners are getting two downloadable Helghast skins for free sometime soon. While not as adorable as the Killzone character seen in Hot Shots Tennis, admittedly, it's a more natural fit here. (more)

New Sengoku Basara & dual-wielded saws, together at last

Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes looks absolutely ridiculous, and I like that. The latest batch of screenshots, featuring man in parachute pants who rides a big wooden head and a warrior who dual-wields saws, do little to make the game appear more sane. (more)

Although its official release date is May 18th, some retailers are selling early copies of Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption. To the surprise of the few that hijacked an early copy, the PS3 version includes exclusive content, marked by a special sticker pasted on the box. According to the packaging, it includes "PlayStation 3 exclusive content" like "Solomon's Folly Gang Hideout" and the "Walton Gang Outfit." There is no sticker on the Xbox 360 version. (more)

If you have any interest in Sony's upcoming ModNation Racers, you've probably already read our review (and entered our giveaway). You're familiar, then, with our biggest grief with the early review code: obnoxiously long load times. Apparently we weren't the only ones to notice. According to Chuck Lacson, associate marketing manager at SCEA, developer United Front Games is "looking into further optimizing the game via a post-launch patch." (more)

All six episodes of Bright Falls now available online

If you're hoping to get acquainted with the world of Alan Wake before the game's extremely imminent release, you may want to watch the six-part mini-series Bright Falls, all of which is now available on Machinima's YouTube channel. Regardless of whether or not you understand a lick of what transpires during the Twin Peaks-esque series, it's still a really well-made tie-in, and gives a great sense of the unsettling environments the titular Wake will be exploring.

Snag the Splinter Cell Xbox 360 Elite bundle for $325

We know how it is. You've had your eyes on the Splinter Cell Conviction Xbox 360 Elite bundle for weeks now. "I want it!," you say, "But it's so expensive." You're in luck, because it looks like Sam Fisher did some 'negotiating' with Dell and got the company to knock a full $75 off the price, making it a cool $324.99. It's worth noting that Dell seems to have the bundle details incorrect. The bundle includes two wireless controllers, not one, and a 250GB hard drive as opposed to a 120GB model. It also do... (more)
