During a PS Vita Press Conference on Friday, Sony Computer Entertainment Taiwan announced the PS Vita will launch in Taiwan on December 23, at the conference SCET's new spokeswoman Rainie Yan, a well known celebrity in Taiwan, came out and spoke to the media. During the interview when asked about her favorite PlayStation game, Rainie claimed that her favorite is Nintendo's "Super Mario Bros" - a game that never appeared on PS platforms.

Her answer wow the crowd at the press confernece, aware that something went wrong, she started posing to the media to shift the attention. However when she started holding the PS Vita on her hand, she held it upside down, and of course she became media attention again with her reckless behavior! It seems she is either clueless on video games, or she hates Sony.

Shaqnews said:
The days of Game Sharing for PlayStation owners is over. Previously, downloaded content from the PlayStation Store could be shared across five devices. While the policy was originally intended to allow flexibility for consumers that owned multiple systems, many gamers exploited it by sharing their passwords--essentially allowing one purchase to be used freely across up to five machines.

That policy is changing beginning November 18th, with newly purchased content being restricted to two machines, not five.

The new terms of service will allow users to play PlayStation content on up to 2 activated systems. For example, PS3 games will be available on up to 2 activated PS3 systems; PSP games will be available on up to 2 activated PSP systems. Once the Vita releases, it will also adhere to the same restrictions.

The revised policy will not affect game purchases made before November 18th.

According to Sony, the new policy will "protect the rights of content providers." However, some PlayStation users are already calling it "restrictive and unfair DRM" and "anti-consumer." Of particular concern are consumers that have failed consoles, which were unable to be deactivated before malfunctioning. Sony says that it will be providing a new PlayStation Network account management website, allowing users to remotely deactivate PSN accounts via the web--similar to how iTunes works.

For more on how to deactivate a PS3/PSP system, visit PlayStation customer support.

As the owner of a rescued dog, I tend to support PETA in its calls for animal rights. However, sometimes that organization has a tendency to go overboard. Like right now. The animal rights group has lodged a complaint against Electronic Arts and DICE's Battlefield 3 in press release form (via BF3Blog), calling out the game's "sadistic" treatment of animals as exemplified in an early campaign scene involving a rat's run-in with your combat knife.

I'm familiar with the scene in question, having played through it twice after failing the related QTE on my first runthrough. While I'd lodge complaint against that scene's ridiculously tiny "press the button now!" QTE window, the rat killing really doesn't seem like something that PETA or anyone else should be getting worked up over.

XCOM Reboot Misses March, Shuffled To After April 2012 Along With Borderlands 2

Quote
2K Marin’s XCOM reboot was originally slated for March 6, 2012. During an investor’s report, Take Two announced the shooter has been rescheduled to "fiscal year 2013." That pegs its release between April 1, 2012 and March 31, 2013.

Borderlands 2 is also a fiscal year 2013 title, which means it will be released within the same timeframe.

Next year, Take Two will release The Darkness II on February 7, 2012 and Max Payne 3 in March 2012. Both titles will be on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Grand Theft Auto V is listed as "TBA" for its release window and platforms .

Quote
"Of course we're working on GT6 already," Polyphony Digital head Kazunori Yamauchi said in a recent interview. In an industry where sequels are inevitable, of course the team would be working on a follow-up to Sony's premiere racing simulator.

But what can we expect from Gran Turismo 6? "What really will be the separating factor is something that we can't update through a DLC is something that obviously has to be saved for GT6."

The first official bit of DLC for Gran Turismo 5 released last month, after a long string of game-changing updates and tweaks. The reason for GT5's late DLC deployment, Yamauchi explained, is that the team wanted to make sure the GT5 "platform" was complete before adding additional content.

"It's been about a year since we've released the game and in the interim we've had about 15 updates that were performed on the game. These set up the basic platform for the system," Yamauchi told IGN. "Now that we have that out of the way, we're ready to release more expansions and content to add to the game."

Sony's way of dealing with that umd issue on vita

Quote
The PlayStation Vita's Japanese launch is rapidly approaching, and Sony has finally offered some details on the program that will allow PSP owners to transfer their games and saves to their new Vita handhelds. All games will have to be repurchased to be played on the Vita, Sony said, but those who can prove via UMD that they already own games will get a discount when repurchasing the same content digitally.

http://kotaku.com/5859342/peta-calls-out-nintendo-for-fur+wearing-mario

Quote
The People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals are blasting Nintendo and their beloved gaming plumber Mario over what they claim is a message that it's OK to wear animal furs.

In Super Mario 3D Land, which was released this weekend, one of Mario's many power-ups is a Tanooki suit which grants him the ability to glide across the screen after jumps. The suit looks more like a one-piece jumper or costume than it does a fur, but PETA says the game is sending the wrong message to gamers.

Head, meet desk.  Desk, this is head.  I'm sure you two have much to discuss.

or you post like a hyprocrite yelling around "NEW RUMOR!!! MORRISSEY IS IN THE NEW SMASH BROTHERS. MY FRIEND WORKS WITH SAKURAI AND HE TOLD ME THIS. THOUGHTS?"

thing is, i posted a thread about rumors. My mistake was maybe that i did not write some thing like a rule that the rumor should be from one or more popular game sites.
Or else, like you mentioned with your great example above, everyone could make up some bullshit.

The rumor i posted as the first example in the rumor thread was that EA tries to get origin to be THE online distribution marketplace for nintendo in western regions.

This rumor was posted on multiple game sites, from game informer to kotaku, ign and i guess more. 

4 people, including you find the rumor hilarious and point out that the original source is a relative unknown nintendo fan website. Hours later someone posts the thing  here in the gaming news thread.

So yay, the rumor  just leveled up to a game news. It wasnt mentioned as a rumor here, instead
http://kotaku.com/5859171/todays-nutty-ea-and-wii-u-rumor

Origin is the chosen one.

we just read "origin is the chosen one"

Is origin the chosen one? rly..(big miz rly)...

probably not. who knows..fact is nobody knows, and it is nothing less than bullshit but hey..grandmaster tiltin  decided that rumors can be posted in the game news thread.

great decision tiltin. +1 kudos yeah you are doing a great job and are an awesome  and smart admin ..one admin people can laugh about ..even if they get banned because poor tiltin  read a zelda skyward spoiler =(

He's just being laid back, nobody is as intense as to search every possible interent forum to try to confront and debunk the rumor starter. Yet you are so anal about having "quality content only" (quality = what YOU approve of) in the forums that you want to roll everything you don't like into big piles of "shit posts" (again, what is shit is defined arbitrarily by you), where you could just easily let threads run their course and die out if they aren't relevant enough.

He's just being laid back, nobody is as intense as to search every possible interent forum to try to confront and debunk the rumor starter.
let's all be laid back and post rumors with absolutely no credibility whatsoever

Yet you are so anal about having "quality content only" (quality = what YOU approve of) in the forums that you want to roll everything you don't like into big piles of "shit posts" (again, what is shit is defined arbitrarily by you), where you could just easily let threads run their course and die out if they aren't relevant enough.
since you seem to have a problem with the "shit thread", why don't you take it to feedback? are you aware that i'm not the only one that merges threads to that place? why aren't you complaining to the other staff members that do the same thing? or to the users that demand that threads be merged there?

sure, for your sake let's disregard that the rumor spread like wildfire and it had to be debunked by a mainstream gaming news site.

Sometimes you should just stop hunting GBK, and if he's being a dumbass like you claim, people will just stop replying to him ... but no, you have to be a dick to him, and try to put him down around every corner.

Seriously, that's not active moderation, that's called harassment.

Let's remember what the post said; "[...]intern by way of friend"

yeah good source +1 would recommend again. We don't need several threads for similar things. A rumor can count as news and be posted in the news thread because people aren't retarded enough to take the aforementioned source seriously.

Quote
why don't you take my feedback?
because 1: i believe you're misinformed (you're under the impression i'm the only one doing all these bad things) 2: the way the shit thread works is fine and i disagree with you. some staff members could agree with you which is why i tell you to post it in feedback instead of this place but it's pretty obvious you'd rather stir up shit here.
Quote
why do you try to deflect your post-elitist and try to shift the blame on somebody else?
it's not so much shifting the blame as it is pointing out that whenever some other staff member does the exact same thing you don't seem to give a shit. fyi tempest brought up the idea of deleting the rumors thread which makes her a content nazi and a horrible person all around. maybe she too needs to chillaxe
Sometimes you should just stop hunting GBK, and if he's being a dumbass like you claim, people will just stop replying to him ... but no, you have to be a dick to him, and try to put him down around every corner.
i'm not hunting him. i'm not actively looking for his posts. if i didn't call him dumb when he posts dumb things someone else would have (which is what happens most of the case). if that's your definition of harassment then i could also claim you're harassing me by the amount of times you've replied to me lately attempting to derail whatever conversation is going on into something about how i'm a horrible administrator or a hypocrite in some way or another, but it might as well be a coincidence because you post often and you're bound to find a post by me in a thread you look at.

Oh come on. Its no different from the posters who post rumors on which characters and modes we'll see in *insert upcoming fighting game* in the Fighting game board. How many times have we actively discussed character rumors when we first heard the announcement of MvC3?

It wasn't about the rumor. It was about rumors in general. Rumors show up on the news, rumors don't need their own thread when this thread serves that purpose just fine. News doesn't mean absolute fact, it means new information that is released about a thing. Don't be stupid. If something is posted here that isn't fact, you can easily edit your post to say it wasn't, or to say it was a rumor, we don't need multiple threads that serve the same purpose.

when did i or anyone else go out of their way to insult gbk for making the thread? i called the rumor laughable/dumb and the thread redundant. i didn't insult him for the thread. any insults he got because of this were because of personal attacks he posted later on. fucking quit talking out of your ass for a minute

I have a question, what exactly defines the difference between threadworthy gaming news, and news for this thread?
there's no clear definition but i imagine this thread would have links to smaller news or articles from gaming sites. think of it as the random topic. you can also post rumors that show up in whatever site but keep in mind that you'll get several replies laughing at the rumor source more than anything else. this is why having a thread dedicated solely to rumors is a bad idea

Popularity of action-RPGs is "a trend...you ignore at your peril"

Final Fantasy XIII-2 producer Yoshinori Kitase has said the changing tastes of gamers means the next Final Fantasy may drift away from its turn-based roots.

Click to view larger image
In an interview with Edge, Kitase said the rising popularity of action-RPGs is "a trend...you ignore at your peril."

"I think the nature of the franchise is to present something new each time. In the global market we see many players moving away from games that used turn-based systems toward what you might term an action-RPG."

He went on to say a number of design elements of Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2's battle system began the transition.

"FFXIII and FFXIII-2's battle systems have those elements of speed and action that are the key words for us, though that doesn't necessarily mean we're going to stick to the same route in our next game," he said. "That's something only time can tell."

Earlier this year, Kitase acknowledged the faults of recent FF games and said FFXIII-2 will be 'completely different experience'.


No Comment



@Tiltin a sub forum just for gaming news and rumors would be cool, there could be one for the typical "whats you favourite shit blabla , which game do you want to see remade blablub" kinds of threads or for people searchinf for help in a game or ask for opinions about a new game etc. and one just dedicated to game news threads

that worked very well on some other forums like N4g where they seperate it clearly

If you've been following the game at all you'd know that they are taking some huge steps to make it non-linear, but personally I don't like it because I dislike the battle system and FFXIII-2's story could make me vomit. I'll try the game but not for full price.

Ubisoft Montreal currently working with next-generation Xbox devkits; major Sony studio shifts focus to new PlayStation.

Quote
Ubisoft Montreal is hard at work on 'target boxes' based on the intended specifications of Microsoft’s Xbox 360 successor, according to an Edge source. Delivery of the first iteration of genuine devkits, running custom hardware, is expected to reach studios before Christmas, and all signs point to the finalised console arriving at retail in late 2012.

Ubisoft’s teams are said to be working on PCs containing off-the-shelf components provided by Microsoft, and it’s our understanding that several other major developers, including certain EA studios, are also in possession of these target boxes. While our source was unable to share precise specifications, it is believed that AMD is providing the bespoke GPU solution for Microsoft’s console. A Ubisoft spokesperson said: "We do not comment on rumour and speculation."

We can also reveal that one major Sony-owned studio has now ceased PlayStation 3 development, its entire focus having shifted to the console’s successor. The studio is also said to have been involved in the development process of the graphics technology adopted by Sony’s new hardware.

Rumor: Brink Devs Making a Marvel Game?
Quote
A major report on British developers from IndustryGamers has thown up a surprising piece of information: that Brink developers Splash Damage are probably working on a new Marvel game.

The report says that the studio is working on an "unannounced project for a major entertainment brand", which is "based on one of the biggest American pop culture brands of the last 50 years".

When it then says this major entertainment brand is "a company widely believed to have given up on the console publishing business", it becomes pretty clear it's talking about Disney, which recently purchased Marvel comics.

The game in question has "online multiplayer technology" and is running on "an even more polished Brink engine".

Rumor: Retailer Leaks Grand Theft Auto V Launch Date

Quote



Within the debut trailer is a hint that tells us Grand Theft Auto V will launch on May 24. And maybe that's close...

A reader has sent us a link to Walmart's listing for the highly anticipated game and as you can see, there's a June 1, 2012 release date.

Other retailers have had summer dates as well, and the latest date we've seen is from retailer Zavvi in the UK, which gave GTAV a November 23 launch date. So at this point, it's difficult to tell when the next GTA installment will arrive, although it seems realistic to assume it'll drop in the second or third quarter. Rockstar and Take-Two may indeed be saving it for a holiday 2012 release; typically, nothing of any interest launches during the summer.

http://www.shacknews.com/article/71269/vita-wont-support-psone-games-at-launch

Quote
Arguably, one of PSP's greatest features was the ability to play PSone classics on it. We could play the likes of Crash Bandicoot and Final Fantasy VII on the go, and we were quite content.

Unfortunately, it appears Vita won't be able to offer the same... at least for now. Sony has confirmed that its upcoming handheld will not be able to play Game Archives at launch.

Sony Japan's website details the omission clearly. A translation from Andriasang reads: "It won't be supported at the time of the PS Vita launch." The lack of PSone support is curious, given the Vita's much more capable specs. Perhaps the Sony team ran into some snafus when attempting emulation on the new platform?

"Regarding future support, we'll share details later," Sony notes. We've contacted SCEA to see if we can unearth additional details regarding this omission.

http://www.shacknews.com/article/71268/ps-vita-memory-cards-priced-30-to-120

Quote
One of the biggest hidden costs of picking up Sony's new Vita handheld is the need to acquire a new proprietary memory card. Whereas the PSP Go had 16GB of storage built-in, the Vita comes with nothing. And, unlike the PSP, which used the slightly more open Memory Stick format, the Vita uses a completely proprietary memory card.

Sony has been shy about pricing these cards, which range from 4GB to 32GB. However, new entries on GameStop's website give us a first look at what to expect.

According to GameStop (via CVG), the 4GB card will go for $29.99. The 8GB card is priced at $44.99; the 16GB card is $69.99; and the 32GB card is $119.99.

Anger over these prices will undoubtedly be palpable. The listed prices represent nearly a 300% markup over Memory Stick, and a 600% markup over SD cards, for equivalently sized offerings. By placing such a high premium on Vita's memory, Sony is taking a page from Microsoft's successful marketing of proprietary Xbox 360 hard drives. Like the Xbox 360, Vita doesn't require additional memory, but many core features, like downloading games, will be unavailable without the extra purchase.

The Vita "First Edition" bundle, which launches one week before the "official" Vita launch, includes a 4GB memory card. The $350 bundle includes a 3G system, a bundled game, and additional accessories.

- on the vita not being backward compatable,  I didnt by the vita to play PSP and PS1 games I want to play Vita games on it.  So that is not a issue.

-  on memory cards,  I am not to worried the price will go down eventually.  It was that same price inflation when the PSP came out.

other than that I am looking forward to the Vita.

I don't think so. People who are into handhelds were waiting for something this powerful. Sure, it may be expensive as fuck, and the main audience transferred over from the PSP which was easily hackable ... wait.

You are right, this shit is going down.

Play Tetris?  Would you still play Tetris with subscription fees?  EA releases Tetris for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch) for $0.99, included with an online ranking system.   You then can pay an additional monthly subscription fee of $2.99 (or $29.99 per year) in exchange for... uh, I dunno......... how about.... FASTER online ranking?!!    :wacky: :deal2:


http://www.kotaku.com.au/2011/12/great-now-you-can-pay-a-subscription-to-play-tetris/




According to all sources I've found (despite EA's claims), literally the only thing the monthly fees give you is a minor boost to your precious "Tetris Rank" compared to players who only paid $1.  That's it.  To make the spectacle even more questionable, this is all powered by Origin (poor man's equivalent of Steam; far buggier and plagued with privacy issues), further expanding the reach of EA's new distribution platform.  Stay classy, EA.

It's only fair to mention that the camera will likely almost never be zoomed in that close when the game is actually being played.  Any games graphics are going to looks sub-par when you blow them up bigger than they're intended to be.

http://store.steampowered.com/holidaysale/details

Quote
The annual Steam holiday sale kicked off today promising the usual array of specials, game packs, daily deals. The big news, though, is the two-part contest running as part of the sale. When the sale concludes on January 1, one lucky shopper is going to walk away with every single game on Steam. The promotion has kicked Steam's usually rock-solid offline right after the announcement, presumably a result of those eager to get their chances for the grand prize.

Here's how it works. To get a chance at seeing your name announced as the big winner come January 2, you need to play the daily "Great Gift Pile" challenges to accumulate coal. Yep, that stuff for the bad boys and girls could be your ticket to PC gaming nirvana. Each day of the sale, six new challenges will be available. For every one you complete you receive either a "winning" gift of a full game or coupon or the consolation prize of a lump of coal.

That coal is valuable, though. Each lump counts as an entry for the grand prize. So the more you accumulate, the better your shot at it. But, for those looking for a little more sure-thing, seven lumps of coal can be crafted together for a pick from the Great Gift Pile, with the promise of not getting a lump of coal in return. And, for the truly enterprising, both the coal and gifts can be traded on Steam, opening up a whole other avenue of wheeling and dealing.

It's all about the risk-reward equation. Do you want one shot at the epic prize or a deal you know you'll get? Oh, and just to make things a little extra interesting, though most of the coupons are for after the sale, a few special "Golden" coupons will be in there that can be used during the holiday sale to get a bonus savings.

Be a little fair,  I'm sure not even Capcom would take out all the hidden upgrades and make you buy them, though given that whole DR2 Cheats DLC fiasco it could be likely but still. We could check once the game's out by, for example, heading to Chill Penguin's stage and getting the leg upgrade.

Considering how relatively short Megaman games usually are, I'm surprised they're even doing that in the first place. None of the items in MMX were hard to get if you knew where they were(Except maybe, Arm Upgrade capsule due to the precision required to reach and even then you could also get THAT from Zero in the first Sigma stage)

Nintendo Of America President Reiterates That Wii U Will Be Priced Significantly Higher Than Wii

Quote
Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime briefly spoke to All Things Digital about what consumers should expect from Wii U. One of the things Fils-Aime did mention is that pricing for console will be priced substantially higher than Wii and that Wii U will mainly interest consumers who want to have the latest gadgets and have a higher disposable income.

 The market is going to continue to differentiate based on the types of experiences that consumers want. As an example, if I’m the head of a household of a family of four, and my disposable income is $50,000 to $60,000, I’m going to continue to look at the Wii because of the software, and it’s a great entertainment device. For consumers who want to have the latest gadgets and have a higher disposable income, that’s for the Wii U.

    We haven’t announced pricing or availability or any other details, but given the current pricing of the Wii, it’s not going to be there.

    We’ve been very clear, the market is going to decide how long these products will coexist side by side. Our goal is to launch the Wii U and drive it into the marketplace, but it will speak to a different consumer than the one that is buying the Wii today during the holidays.

http://mynintendonews.com/2011/12/22/nintendo-of-america-president-reitterates-that-wii-u-will-be-priced-significantly-higher-than-wii/

http://www.shacknews.com/article/71747/kojima-conflicted-on-metal-gear-solid-remake

Quote
Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has heard your cries for a remake of the original game, but personally feels conflicted about the prospect. He says the idea interests him as a producer, but creatively he would want to be hands-off the project if it ever came to fruition.

"There are a lot of people wanting remakes of the original, and as producer I want to answer those calls" said Kojima. "But as a creator I'm not very interested in going back."

"If we were to do it, it would have to be a total remake - the only thing that would be the same would be the story," he told OPM (via Joystiq). "If it happened at some point I would stay as a producer, but would have to hand off most of the actual creating."

That may sound like he has changes in mind, but he actually doesn't want to touch it. "If you change anything, you change the game - and I want to avoid that," he said. "If you bring the gameplay up to modern standards, then you lose a bit of the original game. It was a game made for a certain era - not just the story, but the controls and everything about it reflect that era in which the game was made."

So in summary, Kojima wants to provide a remake, but doesn't want to create the remake, and he feels it would have to be completely redone, but doesn't want to change anything and harm the purity of the original's gameplay. It seems like he's of two minds about the issue, so it's hard to tell which will win out in the end.

His hesitance might be justified, due to a previous remake attempt, The Twin Snakes from Silicon Knights. While critically acclaimed thanks to its improved graphics and smarter AI, the addition of an MGS2-inspired first-person mode was blamed for making the game too easy and ruining the Sniper Wolf boss battle entirely.

For you PS3 folk, I have great news.

The cult classic PS1 platfomer Klonoa: Door to Phantomile is now available on PSN store for a relatively low price.  If you find yourself unable to play the awesome Wii remake, I highly suggest you download this.  The graphics have not aged well at all, but the game itself is an incredibly underrated gem that more people need to experience, and has some of the best music of any platformer of the era.  It's one of my favorite games/series of all time so I felt the need to plug it a little, sorry.

Big Game Makers Take Names Off SOPA Support

Quote
Nintendo, Electronic Arts and Sony Electronics — some of the largest video game companies in the world — have all pulled their support for an online bill that could encourage censorship online, according to an updated list of supporters of the bill.

Those three companies all supported the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) when it first entered Congress, according to a report from Joystiq in November.

SOPA, along with the PROTECT IP act in the Senate, give content-producing companies the right to order a take down for a website that they believe is infringing on a copyright. If you even host links to content that infringes on a copyright, you have to take it down.

If not, the copyright owner can request that the infringing site has its advertising and transaction revenue cut off. Or it can request that a domain name — like businessinsider.com — be blacklisted and rendered inaccessible.

Big Game Makers Take Names Off SOPA Support

The Stop Online Piracy Act, currently a bill before the Congress, is utterly detested by the Internet, in case you don't read the Internet. Gamers don't think much of it either, as it would have some rather stupid ramifications for how they enjoy that lifestyle and consume its products. So it's of note that Nintendo, Sony and Electronic Arts have taken their names off the latest list of supporters of the bill.

Business Insider points us to the official Senate Judiciary committee roundup of supporters and notes that, last time, Sony, Nintendo and EA were on this list. This time they aren't. It's not hard to guess why, given what happened to GoDaddy; it's terrible PR in the sector that is most opposed to the bill and requires the most management, even on a good day.

Now, Sony still has three music divisions listed in support, and as Voodoo Extreme notes, it, Nintendo and EA are members of the Entertainment Software Association, and that organization is still listed in support. So there's still lobbying in support of this bill done on behalf of all three, and you better believe they are very influential members of that organization. My opinion is that one of the three, maybe, and two of them definitely, could get the ESA to drop its name. That is my opinion, though.

To make a record of it, yes, we're aware that Anonymous has allegedly threatened Sony over this. Again, this is by definition a leaderless organization, so anyone can make and upload a video threat in its name. Similar calls to action have been shot down by others within Anonymous in the past. So whether this comes to pass, no one can say, and no one can say if this is even a legitimate threat.

But it does speak, generally, for the anger against SOPA, and it's not hard to see why Sony would pull its name—well, the names over its video game unit, anyway—from the bill in light of that. That's not to say it, Nintendo of America and EA no longer support it, not with the ESA still aboard.

Last week, Business Insider erroneously reported that Nintendo, Sony and EA had quietly rescinded support for SOPA — a detail that Digital Trends, and hundreds of other publications repeated. The BI report was based on the fact that their names did not appear on an updated version of the Judiciary Committee’s official list of supporters. The problem is that their names never appeared on that list — only the ESA did — making their removal impossible.

It was always obvious to me how much influence the American government has over FPS games that demonize the Middle East.  But this is just sad on a whole new level.

Today.

You'll soon be able to play the original Final Fantasy games on yet another platform, as Sony has announced that Final Fantasy Origins is coming to the PlayStation Network tomorrow. The PS1 game compiled the original Final Fantasy and the Japanese Final Fantasy II into one package with a few new bells and whistles.

Sony gave word of the impending release, and highlighted a few extra features. This version adds a memo file function for easier saving, multiple difficulty levels for quests, CG movies and stills, an art gallery, and revamped graphics and sound. No price was given, but Square's PS1 Classics tend to be priced at $9.99.

The PSP remakes of the two games usually retail for roughly $10 each, so this might be a better value for your money. That is, if you haven't played one of the five or six other re-releases that have come out in the past few years.

The Blue Bomber turns 25 this year and Capcom appears to have plans to celebrate his birthday. Bubbleman from Universal Gamer found Mega Man 25th Anniversary logos hidden inside the recent "remake" of Mega Man X for iPhone.

Back in October, Capcom Senior Vice President Christian Svensson said they will have "things" to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Street Fighter and Mega Man after the company’s next fiscal year. In other words, after April 1st, 2012.

According to the latest issue of UK-based gaming publication PLAY, two brand new exclusive PS3 titles are gearing up for a full-blown reveal in February. Both Syphon Filter 4 and God of War IV are said to be deep in development, and will get a full announcement next month. In the “10 Games That Will Be Announced This Year” feature, PLAY states that the long-rumored Syphon Filter 4 is currently in development at SCE London Studio, with the espionage title pegged for a Winter 2012 release.

“As far as our spies tell us, Syphon Filter 4 will be announced and released during 2012 – they’re not often wrong either. Developed by SCE London Studio (once thought to be Sony Bend), it will see a return to the world of shooting, espionage and Gabe Logan’s superb name.”

Sony Santa Monica is also supposedly readying God of War IV for a February announcement, with PLAY teasingly hinting that a recent job listing for an online developer suggests that the action-packed title will feature online play. Both of the titles listed have an announcement window of February 2012 attached, leading many to believe that a barrage of new details may be coming sooner rather than later.

“Sony Santa Monica’s call for an online dev to join its ranks has many thinking the inevitable God of War IV will include online play. We could stop and ask why, but then we could also ask there’s another game when GOW III was meant to be Kratos’s last outing. We’re not complaining though.”

Nintendo Money Printing Press Is Finished. Huge Losses Expected.

Quote
Nintendo is facing a bigger than expected annual loss, facing competition from smartphones and battling a strong yen as well as rivals Microsoft and Sony.

According to Reuters Nintendo is expecting an annual operating loss of ¥45 billion ($575 million). Analysts originally forecasted a lost of ¥4.2 yen.

Hardware sales are not meeting expectations—though, things could be worse. Back in Oct. 27, 2011, Nintendo forecasted hardware sales at 6 million DS units shipped for 2012, but as of Jan. 26, 2012, changed that number to 5.5 million DS units. For DS software, the forecast changed from 62 million to 59 million units.

On Oct. 27, 2011, Nintendo forecasted 12 million Wii units sold in the 2012 financial year. That number was revised to 10 million units. Wii software was originally forecasted at 100 million. That number was unchanged.

The 3DS is both on the comeback trail, but still underperforming. On Oct. 27, 2011, Nintendo forecasted 16 million 3DS units shipped. That number has been changed to 14 million. For 3DS software, Nintendo forecasted 50 million units shipped. On Jan. 26, 2012, that number was changed to 38 million units ship—a huge drop

its not dying..but well

when something gets mainstream it often loses followers of the first hour of the trend

happend as example when rave/techno was totally cool in 1994 and than it got mainstream..it was in the radio and many of the first ravers hated what the industry made of "their" hobby

Nintendo is like years ago losing money instead of making it. The wii was a giant success but wasnt it clear from the beginning that it wouldnt last as long ..including the success than the other far advanced consoles?

Now with the Wii-U i fear they will repeat the strategy but it wont be a big success as the wii again since the competitors gained part of the "casual" market as well

It will be hard for Nintendo..maybe harder than ever in the last 30 years of their companies history

I like my fun to be fresh, new, shiny.

I thought Mario was fresh, new and shiny back when I played SMB in 1989. By Mario 3, I was ecstatic.
By Super Mario World in the SNES, it was the same old SMB3 in 16 bits. And it was all downhill from there for me.

Sorry, just not enough interest. Same character, doing pretty much the same thing. No progression. I'm clearly not their demographic, and I'll yawn again. 2D Platforming peaked at Shinobi 3 in the Genesis.

I do admit though that comment was a bit uncalled for. Nintendo has not been doing it terribly much, atleast compared to someone like activision. But bullshit like, SMG2 and 3dland just really rub me the wrong way.

Also dont try any of that fancy "HUR HUR YEAH SURE YOU GAMING ELITIST". Nintendo dont have the right to spoonfeed us shit for 60 euros more then anyone else does. Comments like that make you seem like a fanboy. If you have a problem with my views then explain yourself well or shut the fuck up.

Post by: Cazaki on January 28, 2012, 05:24:13 pm
The innovation isn't the issue. In fact, Nintendo is the most innovative gaming company as far as products and in the actual games. Mario and Zelda games almost always have a gimmick based around a crazy concept that is integrated into the core experience, in which case the core experience is the almost always the same, which is why people like it so much. The issue really is that Nintendo never really makes new IPs, they always have the same 5 or 6 franchises coming out with games but they rarely make new games with new character with new gameplay. That's my beef, you can make Mario games all you want but atleast switch it up every now and again.

Okay, settle down....
The point is that with every new Zelda and Mario game, it's technically a whole new experience, even the older versions gave out something new, which more than what I can say about God of War or Call of Duty these days...

It is mainly the fact that they do innovate the games(even Skyward Sword basically showed how motion control works in those types of games) so it's just you really.

you know..

sony as example could have been like nintendo and use their formular

they maybe could have bought the Crash Bandicoot and spyro copyrights and use enough Money to get a development team of great minds together to pull out one great Crash bandicoot and Spyro game after another. They could have build up around 5-10 very successful games with characters which work as mascots almost.
Instead they support only very few old IP`s still like Gran Turismo and Everybodys Golf /Hot Shots Golf since the ps1, Ratchet and Clank since the ps2

Instead, Sony suported different teams and different game ideas multiple times on each new console

On the ps1 you had mentioned Crash and Spyro, Ape Escape and Syphoon Filter

On the ps2 sony put their money in totally new and different new IP`s.  We had Jak and Daxter, Ratchet & Clank, God of War,Killzone , Eyetoy games and Singstar. They supported really new experiences like Shadow of the Collossus.

On the ps3 they came up with new ip`s Uncharted, Resistance,Litle Big Planet, MotorStorm and ModNation Racers


Those are all games which are not groundbreaking and mass millionseller material for 20 years but hell..they really did a good job getting new great brands on the market.


Or to say it different

When you buy a new Nintendo Console you know there will be great new Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Starfox, Kirby, Pokemon titles

If you buy another console you know there will be sequels of successful series but you also know there will be new things every year.

Quote
Unlike the PSP, every game on the PlayStation Vita can be purchased and downloaded on the PlayStation Store. In Japan, digital versions of Vita games sport a discount over their retail counterparts. But will America follow suit?

Update: The answer is "yes." A Sony representative has confirmed the discount. "I can confirm that there will be a discount on the downloadable PS Vita titles from PSN. Exact details have not yet been revealed, but be on the lookout for an announcement in the very near future."

Original Story: In addition to offering game cartridges, Best Buy will also sell codes that are redeemable on the PlayStation Network.

It completely alienates the people that would actually like to play the game in a 'lawful' way. Stupid, counter productive, etc, just like any other arbitrary ban in human history.

Quote
Tim Schafer's Psychonauts is practically synonymous with the phenomenon of great, under-appreciated games. It didn't set the world on fire with massive sales when it came out years ago but has gone one to become a cult favorite, with a Mac release happening late last year.

So, what about a sequel? Well, you may have noticed that Schafer's Double Fine dev studio's changed a bit. For the last two years, they've shifted to packs of smaller, leaner teams working on smaller, leaner games destined for the downloadable market. Schafer's said that from a manpower and financial perspective, Double Fine's not quite set up to crank out a follow-up to Psychonauts. Still, he told Digital Spy that he'd love to do a sequel if a few millions dollars magically appeared for that purpose.

Enter Markus Persson, creator of Minecraft and hat-wearer extraordinaire. After reading the interview with Schafer, the man known as Notch indicated on Twitter that he'd be willing to bankroll the return of ‘Nauts hero Razputin, saying "Let's make Psychonauts 2 happen" in a tweet directed to Schafer. and later remarking that he's serious.

Psychonauts Creator Says Notch-Funded Sequel ‘Could Happen’

After joking around earlier, Double Fine head Tim Schafer has told Kotaku that a Psychonauts sequel funded by Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson could very well be a possibility.

"Could happen!" Schafer told me in an e-mail today. "I have found funding on Twitter before!"

This likely refers to Steven Dengler, CEO of Dracogen, who helped fund versions of Costume Quest for PC and Psychonauts for Mac after talking to Double Fine on Twitter. Dengler also expressed interest in helping fund a hypothetical Psychonauts 2, publicly chatting with both Persson and Schafer today.

Quote
Valve is continuing its investigation into last year's Steam hack, and has discovered that a backup file with four years of transactions was probably obtained by the hackers. A letter from Gabe Newell maintains that credit card information and passwords should be secure, but warns users to watch their credit card statements for suspicious activity.

"In my last note about this, I described how intruders had accessed our Steam database but we found no evidence that the intruders took information from that database," Newell wrote. "That is still the case.

"Recently we learned that it is probable that the intruders obtained a copy of a backup file with information about Steam transactions between 2004 and 2008. This backup file contained user names, email addresses, encrypted billing addresses and encrypted credit card information. It did not include Steam passwords."

The company says it still doesn't have any evidence that the encrypted credit cards or billing addresses were compromised, but Newell repeats his prior advice to keep an eye on your credit cards. "And of course keeping Steam Guard on is a good idea as well," he points out. "We are still investigating and working with law enforcement authorities."

http://www.shacknews.com/article/72427/epic-founder-talks-unreal-engine-4-and-console-power

Quote
Epic Games vice president Mark Rein recently teased that the company will show off Unreal Engine 4 sometime this year. Whether or not the next generation consoles will even be powerful enough to take full advantage of it, though, is another story entirely.

Speaking at DICE (via Kotaku), Epic Games' Tim Sweeney said that the impressive "Samaritan" demo would require 2.5 teraFLOPs, while the current Xbox 360 can only handle .25. So to handle that in real-time, the next iteration of the Xbox would have to be ten times as powerful as the current generation. That's for a particularly impressive "Unreal 3" demo; the computational power needed for Unreal Engine 4 could vary.

Rumors have placed the next Xbox at six times the 360's processing power, short of the ten-fold increase required for Samaritan. Given Epic's intent on making sure UE4 ready on day one of the next generation, something will have to change. Epic did push Microsoft into raising RAM on the Xbox 360, and has been vocal about memory for the next generation, so the company has proven it can sway hardware decisions.

Unreal Engine 4 = 10x Xbox360 CPU

I don't know how I feel about them making this a platformer.  Then again, I'm only about halfway through Tennant's run.  Maybe the 11th Doctor's series has a fuckton of running and jumping that I don't know about.

Most likely not.  Video games are still put on a pedestal in terms of ratings, so while porn is R18+, porn games likely won't be.  HIDDEN TEXT HERE==>But that's what the internet's for anyway.

Shit I just read the description :P

4 zones... recycled stage ideas... recycled badniks, they didn't learn shit, I'm not buying this at full price. I'll just wait until it gets a 50% discount at steam or something like that.

i wait till they made like 4 episodes (16 stages) and put them together.


Here some new famitsu ratings

Asura's Wrath (PS3/Xbox 360, Capcom): 10 / 10 / 9 / 9 - (38/40)
The Darkness II (PS3/Xbox 360, 2K Games): 9 / 8 / 8 / 8 - (33/40)
Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus (PS Vita, Koei Tecmo): 8 / 8 / 8 / 8 - (32/40)
Under Defeat HD (PS3/Xbox 360, G.Rev): 7 / 7 / 7 / 7 - (28/40)
Tales of the Heroes: Twin Brave (PSP, Bandai Namco): 8 / 7 / 8 / 8 - (31/40)
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations (PS3, Bandai Namco): 9 / 9 / 9 / 9 - (36/40)
Reality Fighters (PS Vita, Sony): 7 / 7 / 7 / 7 - (28/40)
Harvest Moon: The Land of Origin (3DS, Marvelous): 8 / 8 / 8 / 8 - (32/40)
Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 5: Kazahanaki (PSP, Koei Tecmo): 8 / 7 / 8 / 8 - (31/40)
Nendoroid Generation (PSP, Bandai Namco): 7 / 7 / 6 / 7 - (27/40)
Nightmare Puzzle: Crush 3D (3DS, Sega): 7 / 7 / 7 / 6 - (27/40)
Gal*Gun (PS3, Alchemist): 8 / 8 / 8 / 8 - (32/40)
Tacchi, Shiyo! Love Application (PS3, Compile Heart): 7 / 7 / 7 / 8 - (29/40)

How can anybody still trust a Sonic game at this point?  I'll concede that Colors was all right and Generations wasn't a complete clusterfuck, but with their track record I'm surprised anyone can look at a new Sonic game with anything less than a very generous dose of skepticism.

Because we're not Sonic fanboys?

Unleashed was good despite the night levels. Colors was great. Generations was great. And the handheld titles that pretty much everyone always ignore were always good.

People still clinging to that Sonic cycle thing is just stupid.

^^ I actually agree about the Sonic Rush games being really good.  And I'm not a Sonic fanboy by any stretch of the imagination.  All I'm saying is that when the franchise has become pretty much synonymous with 'catastrophically disappointing crap' over the years, it's easier to be cynical about it.

Post by: Cazaki on February 16, 2012, 03:15:19 am
It's good but difficult and excruciating. Everyone likes realism but Far Cry 2 takes it too far. Almost any encounter is dangerous, you die extremely quickly, stealth doesn't work, healing yourself is a pain, you have to drive everywhere, the map is a real-time map (Which is bad when your driving and reading it simultaneously.), but the game at it's core is extremely well done and it's multiplayer used to be the shit but it's probably dead now.

EDIT: Assassin's Creed 3 due by Holloween but you know that'll be pushed back.

Some new F2P game called "Brawl Busters" is now on Steam. I've played it, it's actually really good and balanced but the metagame hasn't really opened up yet because the game is so young. There's only 2 modes online, Team Deathmatch and Zombie Survival, and the battle system is really sophisticated and unique, I'm sure that after they add some more new modes and some new ways to play the game via equipment, it will be amazing. But for the moment it's just a game with a bit more depth than meets the eye, I might not play it regularly but I will keep a watchful eye on the game throughout the year of 2012.

I've read the word "Metagame" in 2 different threads today, and both times it was you posting it.

What do you mean by it?
Title: Re: gaming news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: Cazaki on February 20, 2012, 09:29:13 pm
Basically means how the game is played competitively over time, and how the game's engine is used. So let's say Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, the way it's played now is completely over the top and crazy, with infinites, 1 frame links, the tiers, all that jazz. That stuff obviously wasn't there when the game first came out, but the game evolved over time, so when I say metagame, pretty much how people play the game as they figure out what's the best way to do things. That Brawl Busters game is pretty damn young, no one really knows how to play, they don't have any different weapons really and no one really knows what they're doing yet, but as the game gets older I think it'll be pretty goddamn good when people figure shit out.

Namco Bandai reviving old game properties as webcomics (http://www.comicsalliance.com/2012/02/27/namco-bandai-shiftylook-webcomics/)

I wonder where they're planning on going with this.  Maybe they're planning on raising the brand awareness of the titles to try and springboard a reboot?  Not a bad idea.

Aside from the five tracks added to the US version (Dragula, Slow, Just Got Wicked, Patrol Knob, and Improvise), it should be fine. Those five tracks will hopefully be in too, but one never knows, given the craziness of licensing.

Zone of the Enders HD launches in the autumn on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Konami has announced.

No mention was made of the PS Vita version, which Japanese game developer legend Hideo Kojima announced in September last year.

The compilation includes Zone of the Enders and Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner, both developed by Kojima Productions for the PlayStation 2. The games have been re-mastered with HD visuals for this latest release.

"We are looking forward to bringing the legendary Zone of the Enders series to old and new fans in a high definition form," said Konami general manager Martin Schneider.

"We are excited to offer these games on new platforms which will allow gamers to experience the drama and action of the Zone of the Enders like they have never seen it before."

nope, i didnt read that article because i got the info from a german site which didnt described it as blizzard releases 600 people because they are currently not needed

i thought..okay..when so many people are not needed currently anymore that might mean that D3`s development could be done mainly since probably at least 300 people work/ed on that game

well yeah but
Quote
[...] around 10% of the people affected are from departments "related to development."
[...] Blizzard is still hiring for a number of development roles.

To put the figure into perspective
[...] Blizzard had over 4,600 employees globally (est. September 2009)
[...] Blizzard hired over 1,000 employees within the last twelve months (est. December 2010)
[...] Blizzard has over 1,500 working in its European offices alone.

The layoffs are probably in support and customer service.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inxile/wasteland-2

Brian Fargo,creator of the original Wasteland game which inspired the Fallout franchise, has submitted a kickstarter for what a sequel to that game.

Quote
Wasteland 2 is the direct sequel to the first ever post-apocalyptic computer RPG. The original Wasteland was the inspiration for the FALLOUT series of games, and the first RPG to allow players to split parties for tactical considerations, to face players with moral choices, and to make them deal with the consequences of their actions. It was the first to provide far more than the one-key-for-one-lock style of puzzle solving. It was groundbreaking, which is why IGN named it one of the top 25 PC games of all time, Computer Gaming World named it the Adventure Game of the year in 1988, and it was short-listed for inclusion in the Smithsonian Institution’s current “Art of the Computer Game” exhibition.

The game will be developed by Inexile,Brian Fargo's company, if the kickstarter is a success. Most of the people who were responsible for designing the original Wasteland(1988) and Fallout have reunited for this game Alan Pavlish, Mike Stackpole, Ken St. Andre, Mark Morgan and Jason Anderson.

They're looking to obtain at least $900,000 to finance the game. It's at $92,902 with 34 days to go at the moment(ends Apr 17, 8:05am EDT.)

Were the chars that were ADDED the ones REMOVED? Do you have the games as when it was first released or something? Didn't you reset the game to it's original state somehow? o_0

I don't know if anyone knew this, but Peter Molyneux left Lionhead Studios and Microsoft, for a new company called "22 Cans".

I don't really like Lionhead Studios, and I don't really like Molyneux (He tricked me into buying mediocre games, the cretin.), but Fable has a fanbase so I thought I would share.

Hahaha overreacting? Please, people actually paid for the previous version that had all the content that got removed in this shitty update, nothing new added in this update, they basically said "HAHAHA FUCKTARDS GUESS WHAT YOU DONT GET TO HAVE ANYMORE EVEN THOUGH YOU PAID FOR IT AND NOW WE HAVE YOUR MONEY,HAVE A NICE DAY DERP HERP MERP"

Yeah... learn how to read :
Quote
*ATTENTION*

Yesterday, THE KING OF FIGHTERS-i Ver.1.02.00 Update was launched via the App Store, however, due to an unexpected error, the game’s 20 characters have been decreased (downgraded) to 14 characters if players update to the latest version.

Please withhold from downloading the Ver.1.02.00 update at this time.

A future announcement will be made in the coming days regarding the correct implementation of KOF-i’s latest update, returning the roster to 20 characters.

* The problem is expected to be fixed in roughly one week.

Thank you for your understanding.

And to those dissing the iPhone version : it may be the worst device to play this type of games, but at least they're cheap and you can play them whenever you want, in the subway and whatnot, without having to get another handled console. :P

Handheld consoles in general are also pretty bad for fighting games. But at least those have buttons and pads, playing a fighting game in a tactile screen just feels wrong.

:wall:

OK first of all, those two levels are from the NA version (and maybe the EU version? I have no idea), not the JP version. Second, the port is still missing songs from the JP version: all the Deavid Soul songs were on all versions of JSR. And just because songs weren't on the super magical JP version doesn't mean they're not important, they were on the disc for a fucking reason.

anyway, now I'm very hesitant about this port; on the one hand, JET SET RADIO <3 <3 <3. On the other, no Yappie Feet or Miller Ball Breakers. Those two were some of my favorite tracks :'(

i also would miss dragula, not joking at all

EDIT: OK House by Idol Taxi is also missing, and while I like it, it's as essential as the Deavid Soul ones were, IMO

http://www.vg247.com/2012/03/15/giant-bomb-bought-by-cbs-interactive/
how's that for a full circle

Quote
Just announced in the livestream, Giant Bomb and Comic Vine have been sold to CBS Interactive, and are moving back to the Gamespot building.

For the past couple years, companies have expressed interest in the Whiskey suite of sites, be it investment or straight up being bought out. Jeff, for the entirety of 2012, has been in the middle of business dealings, how they are going to fit in the Gamespot swing of things. Jeff has said "Giant Bomb in its current form will continue to exist."
When asked by the Gamespot staff, what do you guys need, the answer (and the correct answer imo) was "we need a place to put a couch and hang a deerhead."
Screened and Tested are not part of this buyout. They are going elsewhere.
Paperwork was officially signed on Wednesday, March 14th.
At 4pm west coast time march 15, jeff and co are going to the gamespot buildings (the gamespot crew just found out as soon as us users found out, on the stream) and one of the topics they are going to talk about is full disclosure on what explicitly happened in 2007.
If anything, they are going to have to be "more" Giant Bomb than they were before. Somebody wouldn't buy them if they were to go and change who they are.
Ryan Davis - "suffice to say we're going to keep having really bad ideas and keep on executing on those." "trust that those decisions are coming from us"
During GDC, the entire office was being packed up, hence the lack of videos this week.
Part of them going back there is "we will be in charge of editorial"
Brad, Jeff, Ryan, Drew, Patrick, Alexis, Drew, Jeff, Vinny, Alex, .... the core of whiskey media, along with comic vine are making the move over to CBS as well. Joey is not moving over. "there are no immediate plans to being people to the site (staff)"
"Fuck yeah" answer to people wanting to know if they can keep swearing. Actually, it was one of the first things discussed in the initial meetings. "We want to treat you guys like adults."
Will you guys have an exposed brick wall? "they're gonna do some things to the 3rd floor of that building (gamespot level)"
What does this mean for gamebomb.ru? "gamebomb.ru we're sorry to say is not coming with us on this journey"
"fate of nothing. the thing is a workhorse." when asked about the fate of the podcast. "I'm also not going to commit to having video on our podcast"
"I am proud to announce that I have found a copy of Binary Domain" - Jeff
"Do not send mail to the old office. We can not get it there anymore." - Jeff
Are you going to change the way ads are done on the site? "meebo bar is now gone. we are going to be cutting that amazing piece of technology." "we'll be able to hopefully have smarter ads." "members continue to be no ads. that will not change at all."
Reviews are still going to happen on Giant Bomb, even taking into account the plethora of reviews Gamespot puts out.
"What we will be offering in terms of reviews will be different in terms of what Gamespot is doing" - jeff
"Patrick is still going to be out there chasing down news stories"
"we're not going to cut off aspects of giant bomb just because somebody else does them." - jeff
"we want to hustle the gamespot staff at warlords" - the real reason they're doing this.

http://www.shacknews.com/article/72869/tony-hawk-confirms-skater-roster-soundtrack-for-hd-revamp

Quote
The Tony Hawk series has taken a hiatus since "the unpleasantness," but it's getting a return to its roots with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD. It seems so obvious in hindsight, because of course all we wanted was a downloadable game with the old physics engine and prettier graphics. The series namesake, Hawk himself, has answered a few fan questions.

Hawk appeared on video on the One of Swords blog. First, on the subject of character inclusions, he said that both Chris Cole and his son Riley Hawk will appear. "I've asked [Riley] to be in a couple of the games prior to this one, and he wasn't into it at all," Hawk said. "To be honest I'm surprised that he agreed, but I'm really proud of him because I feel like he's making his own way, and he's definitely a well-respected skater in his own right and very creative." Secret characters will include Officer Dick, Ollie the Magic Bum, and "a few more."

The highly-regarded soundtrack will get a return, at least in part. Hawk says that about half the soundtrack is composed of older songs, while the other half will be new tracks that reflect quality "people have come to expect" from a TH soundtrack.

In other miscellaneous tidbits, Hawk promises five online modes, but can't give details on them quite yet. He also says he hopes it's released on PC, and that it's generating some good buzz that might allow that to happen.

http://andriasang.com/con0ck/dwvs_samus_link_trailer/

A Mii? That definitely is weird. So not surprisingly from what I've heard Resident Evil Raccoon City bombed as far as reviews go so far, I was pretty sure that's how it was going to go, considering that the team that created a flop of a Socom game for PS3 worked on it. I was surprised that Ninja Gaiden 3 seems to be doing quite poorly also. I thought since Dead or Alive Dimensions held up fairly well without Itagaki that Ninja Gaiden 3 would have been about the same.

Also I didn't know there was a Warriors Orochi 3 being released until yesterday, it also has a bunch of new characters, including Ryu Hayabusa and Ayane.

I'm considering getting it, because I've really enjoyed DW 7, and this has members of the new cast from that game as well as a few other random new additions.

First screens of .hack//Versus have surfaced at Famitsu.com. Take a look at PS3's .hack fighting game here:
As detailed earlier in the day, Versus will be offered as a hybrid disc with the Blu-ray release of the .hack//Sekai no Mukou ni movie. Famitsu does not have gameplay details, but does show "ultimate skills" for Sora and Haseyo. The shots also show the mysterious "9" character.
.hack Sekai no Mukou ni + Versus Hybrid Pack will be released on June 28, priced ¥7,140. The game will also be offered as a ¥10,500 "The World" version which includes a mini size theater pamphlet, a set of 25 jacket-sized posters, a 48 page art book, a special DVD, a special box and other goodies.

It seems to have released yesterday, and I didn't know that GBK, I guess it's like one of the DW Legends expansions except as you said, they slapped a 2 on it instead :p

I'm considering getting it, because I've really enjoyed DW 7, and this has members of the new cast from that game as well as a few other random new additions.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-j7EN6mOibY
Wo2 had the orochi fraction, more characters, but but all in all it was the same game without changes as you see them between DW6 and DW 5 or Sw1 and Sw2 as example

I look forward to WO3 which seems to be damn great

A 'family values' organization is protesting EA over something that they made up and that isn't actually happening. (http://kotaku.com/5895181/family-values-group-rails-against-hypothetical-transgender-darth-vader-video-game)

The best part?  When they refer to the character a player plays as as an "action figure."  The whole thing reads like it was written by a startled 90 year old man who just woke up from a nightmare.

Sega, Namco, Capcom site updated again like last time only character i can guess is the capcom one which would have to be batsu as the only other character i can think of from them with those colors is Voltnutt but he doesn't have white shoes.

Looking at it again it does look like it is the black spots even matches her legs but there being no skin color seems weird.

I say Capcom is Megaman Volnutt, Namco I dunno...Asuka from Tekken and Sega no idea.. Axel Stone from Streets of Rage???

Nah Capcom is defiantly Bastu as the feet would have to be blue to be Voltnutt and it would need more light blue on it. Sega's seems like someone from Phantasy Star to much white and no yellow makes it so it can't be Axel.
Title: Re: gaming news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: XANDERAC on March 22, 2012, 01:55:39 am
Reason why I think it's still Volnutt is the fact that there's no red (for Batsu's gloves), and there's green, which is also Volnutt's eye colour, and the yellow might be a part of his armor. (Batsu doesn't have any green on him from what I recall either.

http://www.game-art-hq.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/Namco-x-Capcom-Game-Character-Official-Artwork-Mega-Man-Volnutt.jpg the yellow could be part of something on his back.

Post by: Moon Girard on March 22, 2012, 03:03:49 am
I don't think the arms are include(Ken's didn't have his brown gloves Bayonetta's didn't have her white sleeves etc.) so that might be why there is no red but i don't see yellow or green on the Capcom X are my computer colors messed up? Also i am lead to believe sega's is Ogami from Sakura wars (http://static.zerochan.net/full/09/21/413559.jpg).

Your link doesn't work unfortunately, but I googled it, maybe that is a possibility...but there is a yellow and green pixel colour on the Capcom one...

Better shot of Megaman's back to see the yellow colours, at the bottom of the Capcom X, there's brown, above the brown is yellow and then blue, with a single green pixel 3 up from the left side's yellow colour.

Weird Shows up as a blueish color and Skin tone for me. well the guys at 2ch who came up with the last list did it again i kinda hope they are right just for the fact Bahn is there though Tear might be a bit of a stretch seems they changed their mind on the one that looks like Bayonetta.

Maybe our colour settings are just a bit different, but this is what I'm comparing atm, the green is almost like a Teal colour for me, and the yellow is a bit too golden too look like skin tones, oh well.

The yellow isn't golden at all. And the eye colors are differewnt as well, plus the colors are in pattern of the character's appearance, Volnutt doesn't have white boots.
Title: Re: gaming news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: XANDERAC on March 22, 2012, 04:54:12 am

^When I had first heard of that I thought it was pointless with Sony already releasing ModNation Racers, which even featured Sackboy and his own cart, not to mention the whole ability to create practically anyone and any track. Stylewise though the games visually will look very different, and with the use of the various camera angles to recreate the look of other styles of racers, and its' own power-up system, I think the game will actually be a fairly promising release in the end afterall, especially after watching that trailer.

I don't know about the market being too small, I think the problem is there's usually more flops in this genre than there are successes nowadays, and I'm not even talking about sales, usually the games just either do poorly, or start well and progressively become poor renditions of what their focus was, they're probably just afraid to take the risk but I'm sure it would be better to do that, than to trust the team that made a SOCOM game which flopped with one of your established franchises (Operation Raccoon City) which I heard is doing poorly already.

Arc System Works is developing "Xblaze" as the first entry in what it refers to as "Adventure Project." The game will be released in winter 2012 for an undisclosed platform.

Xblaze's announcement came during a special stage at today's BlazBlue Continuum Shift 2 national tournament. According to 4Gamer, BlazBlue series producer Toshimichi Mori also revealed that the second entry in the Adventure Project is also in the works. Regarding the BlazBlue series, he said that they hope to soon have a large event for the game, and something will probably be announced there.

You can see the segment of the stage event announcing the game below. The slides refer to Xblaze as "another Blue story," suggesting that it may have some ties to BlazBlue.

Character Designs don't look to hot.

Well, from this article (http://www.siliconera.com/2012/03/23/what-if-ryotaro-dojima-in-persona-4-the-arena/):

Quote
Since Atlus and Arc System Works are working together, 4gamer asked Mori if he would want Atlus to make a BlazBlue RPG. Mori said he would like to make a BlazBlue RPG, but he would want to do it himself rather than give it to Atlus.

At any rate, I'm interested. Arcsys proved that they can develop a good story with BlazBlue so I'll be keeping an eye out for this.

He mentioned "Another Dream Comes True" and that he draws some of his favourite characters of the SF series

Dream Comes True was a hint he said, and my only guess is it might be related to SF Alpha since its subtitle was "Warriors Dreams"

Ono recently mentioned he has interest to produce a SF Alpha game, but personally i believe it might be a SF Alpha 3 Online Edition we get, since artgerm worked on the SF3 Online Edition illustrations

Really!! I hope your assumption of SFA3 being online is correct. Capcom needs to make this classic available to this generation of consoles. SFA3 is easily one of the best entries of 2D fighting. I'd also love to see Rival Schools and Power Stone at one point.  :sugoi:

the artist Stanley Lau, also known as artgerm mentioned it to me that he is working on drawing Street Fighter Characters again for capcom but he is not allowed to tell anyone for which game

He mentioned "Another Dream Comes True" and that he draws some of his favourite characters of the SF series. Dream Comes True was a hint he said, and my only guess is it might be related to SF Alpha since its subtitle was "Warriors Dreams"

Ono recently mentioned he has interest to produce a SF Alpha game, but personally i believe it might be a SF Alpha 3 Online Edition we get, since artgerm worked on the SF3 Online Edition illustrations
Wow, that assumption is quite a stretch. I'd take it with a grain of salt

yeah..facts are just thats he is drawing SF characters for a new game by capcom

it can be anything from a sf alpha online game or a completly new sf, my assumption is based on that he mentioned he draws some of his favourite characters and that "another dream comes true"

what else can it be beside a sf alpha online game?

What are his favorite characters? Any hints like  OMG RAINBOW MIKA, FINALLY DAYUM?

what else can it be beside a sf alpha online game?
"what else ::) " ? It could be anything!
with that little info I could say maybe it's the SF portion of CVS3 in Playstation 4, for that matter.

Come on, get serious.

I would rather get a sf5 that is an actual sequel, I wonder if capcom is ready to run the risk, i understand them not doing so with sf4 with the size of the fighting game market back then but now we are getting shitty fighting games about bikini girls who transform in tron so there should be a profitable market for sf5.

yeah, it was the sega smash pack that was released exactly the day SEGA announced that the dreamcast was going to be discontinued.

This guy obviously knew that this was going to happen and left the file there so the fans had SOMETHING to do after the console died (And as a side note, the emulation in that GD ROM was AWFUL, like really shitty sound and sometimes bad framerate).

The "X" game Namco Bandai was teasing over the past couple of weeks was revealed last week to be Hunter x Hunter Wonder Adventure, a PSP game based off the Hunter x Hunter manga and anime. Today, Namco Bandai opened a teaser site for the game.

Jump had a first look at the game this week. The magazine revealed the game to be an action adventure where you control Gon and Killua. As you clear gimmicks and work past enemies in the Hunter x Hunter world, you'll experience new story segments not found in the other works.

On the gameplay front, the magazine detailed the "Change Drive" system, where you change your character's style. Gon can change his combat style from fighting to fishing. Killua can go from fighting to skateboard.

and yes i know they are in trouble but i dont think that wwe12 re-release has to do with it..bet it was planned since a longer time already and i like that

its like a goty edition with everything onboard and probably cheaper as the vanilla version as well

wwe12 is a game i didnt buy yet and didnt want to really but if the price tag is around 40 euro i get it

60 euro for the vanilla version + another 20? for the additional dlc stuff was too much for me for a wrestling game which still has flaws like using years old animations which arent fitting to the wrestlers anymore

Quote
Nintendo's new Wii U home console launches in the US on Sunday 18th November, according to a leaked internal email from a leading Japanese retailer.
As picked up by WiiUDaily, the memo in question was circulated among staff at the Tokyo-based store before finding its way into the wild.
According to the email, a Japanese launch apparently follows a week later, though there was mention of a European date.
The original Wii launched in the US on 19th November 2006, also a Sunday, with Japanese gamers getting it two weeks later and Europe three weeks later.
Nintendo is expected to offer up more details about the launch during this year's E3 show in Los Angeles during the first week of June.

Sounds about right if it's true thats two days after my Birthday to time to start dropping hints.

Love System returns to Fire Emblem in FE: Awakening
http://andriasang.com/con0hp/fire_emblem_love/
Quote
The second Iwata Asks column for Fire Emblem Awakening reveals that this original 3DS entry in the series has love elements

Genki Yokota, the game's director on Nintendo's side, explained that one of the major themes for the new game is love of the characters, so he really wanted to add a marriage system to the game. Producer Hitoshi Yamagami felt the same way, saying that the marriage elements from Super Famicom's Fire Emblem Seisen no Keifu, the first time such elements appeared in the series, left a great impression in him.

For Awakening's marriage system, they increased the variation of the possible couple combinations. You can marry any of your allies, and your My Unit characters too.

The development staff created special graphics for proposals. Some on the team even suggested that they make kiss faces for all the characters.

Fire Emblem is nice, but it's not Advance Wars. That series needs to come back too.

Lol they put two Marths in the game.

Translation of the picture.
Quote
Players will receive a "Spot Pass Team" on a nearly daily basis.
This team will consist of characters made in the image of past Fire Emblem characters.
You'll be able to fight them, make them into allies, and so-forth.
You can expect to receive around 120 teams through Spot Pass.

Nintendo has shared details on Fire Emblem Awakening's first round of download content. Classic Fire Emblem character Marth will appear in the game as a ¥300 download. Clear a map, and you'll get to make Marth into a party member.

Marth will be available for download on April 19, opposite Awakening's release. The DLC will be free through May 31.

"We thought a lot about a sequel, and had done some initial development on it, but we found a project that we thought was a better fit for People Can Fly," he said. "We haven't announced that yet, but we will be announcing it pretty soon."

"I'd love to go back [to Bulletstorm]," he added. "I think there's more to do with Bulletstorm. Heck, it kind of ended wanting more. I'd love to see another project, but right now we don't have anything to talk about."

Regarding the original Bulletstorm, Capps said the foul-mouthed first-person shooter didn't live up to publisher Electronic Arts' expectations.

"I think Bulletstorm was very critically successful, and I think a lot of folks really enjoyed seeing something new," he said. "From a sales perspective it was good, but not amazing. I think EA was hoping we'd do better."

Capps also claimed that the PC version of Bulletstorm was hurt by piracy, but also admitted that it was a less than stellar port which may have hurt sales, too.

"We made a PC version of Bulletstorm, and it didn't do very well on PC and I think a lot of that was due to piracy. It wasn't the best PC port ever, sure, but also piracy was a pretty big problem."

Thundercats game for DS

Quote
So, why is Thundercats on the Nintendo DS instead of the 3DS? The representative explained the companies involved are aware of the current economic climate and know many parents, who would probably be buying Thundercats for their kids, might not be able to afford a 3DS. There’s a better chance of their children already owning a DS, which would mean they wouldn’t have to worry about getting a whole new system for a game. Plus, people who are fortunate to own a 3DS can still enjoy Thundercats due to backwards compatibility.

At least it looks like this and the Lightning story DLC is the last of it or for the Coliseum dlc anyway.
http://andriasang.com/con0pa/ffxiii2_snow_valfodr_dlc/
Quote
As detailed earlier in the day, the Snow and Valfodr download content will be released on the May 15th. Famitsu does not list a price.

Snow will have a new episode. The idea behind the episode came from the game's female staffers, character modeling director Hideo Kubota told Famitsu. The episode, whose theme is "Don't fight for me," will show the feelings Snow and Serah have one for one-another.

Director Motomu Toriyama said that the episode will clear up some mysteries behind the coliseum itself. We'll also apparently learn about Snow's mission as a L'Cie.

Valfodr appears in the second half of Snow's episode. He appears to be quite the foe, with the ability to use weapons, magic and summons. You'll apparently have to defeat him multiple times throughout the episode. Each time, he comes back at higher level and with additional abilities.

According to Toriyama, Valfodr was added to the game with the idea of having him appear as something like the Coliseum's last boss. He's the strongest opponent you'll face in the Coliseum, and when at his maximum level is the most powerful monster in Final Fantasy XIII-2 as a whole.

Snow has a 30% crystal conversion rate (this indicates how easy it is to make him into a party member). Valfodr's rate depends on his level, but at maximum level the rate is 100% (which should give you an idea of how hard it will be to defeat him).

When in your party, Snow is an attacker with a focus on punches and kicks. Valfodr is a blaster with the same strength as an attacker. Among his learnable arsenal are Hellflame, Hellspark, Hellstorm and Hellfreezer.

Ubisoft sued over Assassin's Creed copyright infringement
http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2012-04-18-ubisoft-sued-by-author-over-assassins-creed-copyright-infringement
Quote
John L. Beiswenger claims numerous similarities with his novel, Link

John L. Beiswenger, an American science fiction author, is suing Ubisoft over alleged similarities between his novel, Link, and the Assassin's Creed franchise.

Beiswenger's novel is based on the premise that ancestral memories can be "accessed, recalled, relived and re-experienced" by participants in a radical new scientific process. The suit lists a wide range of similarities, from narrative themes to specific use of individual words.

Link also includes numerous references to assassins and assassinations in relation to the new process. The legal document cites a number of extracts from the book, including this from page 290:

"'If John Wilkes Booth fathered a child after he assassinated Lincoln, and we found a descendant alive today, we could place Booth at the scene and perhaps smell the gunpowder.' 'Ancestral memories?' 'As far back as you want.'"

Other similarities mentioned include the technology used to conduct the memory experiments and, "spiritual and biblical tones, with references made to Jesus and God, the Garden of Eden, and forbidden fruit."

Beiswenger is seeking damages for each product released since Assassin's Creed was established in 2007, including all four games, the guide-books, the comic series, and two trailers.

The suit requests that damages of no less than $1.05 million be awarded to Beiswenger, with that amount rising to $5.25 million if the judge rules that Ubisoft for wilfully infringed his copyrights. It also requests that the judge prevent the release of Assassin's Creed III and all related products.

Darksiders 2 delayed to August

Once again we want to welcome you to the new Darksiders II website. Being a part of our community means you will be the first to know when new trailers, screenshots, announcements and updates around Darksiders II are released.

The rumor-mill has been churning with speculation recently, so we wanted to put it to rest first here with our core fans: Darksiders II will be moving to release globally in August 2012, rather than June as previously announced. It’s just a short delay, but we promise the game you’ll have in August will be well worth the wait!

This is great news for the team at Vigil, because it allows additional time for polish and to ensure that all aspects of Darksiders II meet the high-quality bar the team is targeting. In game development, more time is always a good thing for quality and the Vigil team is dedicated to providing the definitive Darksiders experience.

Ubisoft sued over Assassin's Creed copyright infringement
http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2012-04-18-ubisoft-sued-by-author-over-assassins-creed-copyright-infringement

Seems SOMEONE has realized that they're broke and began to look for similarities from his book on other franchises.

I hope Ubisoft's lawyers tear a new one to this guy. Also, watch his book begin to get mass negative reviews on book stores.

As the legal documents (http://www.bannerwitcoff.com/_docs/Ubisoft_Complaint.pdf) are linked in the article (around 40 pages) I gave them a look.  He started the book with his idea in 2002/2003, while the first Assasins' Creed was released in 2007. Part of the claim is based on shaky grounds ("they use some of the same words, like ASSASSIN, and ANCESTOR") but I can imagine  what the Author would have felt like if many (most?) of his ideas and the subsequent implications were being milked cash to no end by a money grubbing company making mediocre yearly games.

AC's disclaimer "Inspired by historical events and characters. This work of fiction was designed, developed, and produced by a multicultural team of various religious faiths and beliefs". What are the chances that this multicultural team might have been put together by someone who made the original concept AFTER reading the book?

It sounds plausible to me, I don't think I'd ever even perceived the notion of DNA memories until I played AC, and I thought it was a superb concept.  This one guy sat down for maybe a couple of years, wrote a book with lots of intricacies, and went as far as describing apparatuses with widths, sizes, and type of cables they used ... and I'm expected to believe some computer nerd at Ubisoft thinking about Parkour Gameplay came up with this shit all by themselves?

I really can see where his "This is exactly what I wrote, WTF" comes from. I'm not accusing anybody, but I'm siding with the book author on this one. Sadly he didn't make it as interesting or fun as AC :P

Yea, I think it's pretty dickish to sue after the series had 4-5 years to establish itself just because there are some similarities.

Not to mention that if this author succeeds, you can bet that every SOB out there is going to start suing companies just because their franchise happens to have even the smallest similarity to their work. (That character uses the same hat as mine. SUE THEM! Hey, this series takes place in the same place as mine. SUE THEM!)

[avatar]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e315/Tiger_Stripe/discordava3.png[/avatar]Wait, so is it a prequel?  It said 'before the ghost of sparta', but then talks about breaking a blood oath to the gods, which happened after that.  Nothing in that teaser makes any sense in the context of the series.  It's a shame, because GoW1 was an incredibly well-written greek tragedy, but then after that they just decided "GRAAAARRGHLE BLLARGHHL MORE ANGRY AND BLOOD AND KILLING AND MAD AND VENGEANCE AND HRRRRNG!" would be a better direction to go.

And yet, I will almost certainly buy it anyway.  *sigh*  >_>

Anyways I for one would totally welcome God of War: Norse Edition, with a new protagonist but similar story. Prequel sounds okay to me, this is a series where "more of the same" works well enough and I will probably have a lot of fun playing it on its hardest difficulty :)

Kratos destroyed the world, killed all of the gods, and then offed himself.  There is nowhere left for any story to go.

Someone didn't stay around for after the credits.

If anything this game would be about Kratos trying to fix everything he ruined, but of course that's way too logical.

Sega announced today that the first print run of Super Monkey Ball Banana Splitz will include a product code for an "adult map."
The "adult map" is themed around Yukie Kawamura, the gravure model who appeared in a recent Monkey Ball promotional video that didn't actually show any Monkey Ball. The map is full of Yukie gimmicks.
You can try out a sample of the adult map in a demo that Sega released to PlayStation Store today.
The card the product code comes on will come in three flavors. They all feature Yukie in a bikini, but you'll get just one pic at random.

Animal Crossing 3DS will be released in the Fall. The game's final Japanese name is Tobidase Doubutsu no Mori. The name "Tobidase" can mean jumping out of something. It's often used to describe the 3DS's 3D effect. Iwata said that in addition to the visuals, the term applies here to the game's wireless functionality.

Lighting will have a brand new role and abilities made specifically for this episode. Square Enix also changed Lightning’s Scene Drive attack.

Monster Hunter Puzzle Game Announced for PSP (http://andriasang.com/con0si/monhan_puzzle/)

Capcom has an unexpected new game in this week's Famitsu. According to early Famitsu flying getter Sinobi, the magazine has a first look at Airu de Puzuruu, a puzzle game based around the Monster Hunter franchise's Felyne character (known as "Airu" in Japanese). The PSP title will be released on July 19, priced a low ¥2,990 (standard PSP games go for ¥5,040).

Sinobi does not provide details on the game, but does say that it looks a bit like that classic of Capcom puzzle games, Puzzle Fighter.

You may recall that Famitsu teased a Capcom-related announcement for this week's issue. It's unclear if this is the game in question.

Earlier this week, my colleague Elrood broke news Famitsu was announcing an unexpected new title from Capcom. Speculation ran wild, from a new Darkstalkers, to a new Dino Crisis, to the un-cancelling of Megaman Legends 3. Well, you guys are all waaaaaaaay off.

Apparently, the game in question goes by the name Airu de Puzuruu and its a puzzle game in the style of Capcom’s old Puzzle Fighter series, except now, based off the popular Monster Hunter series. The game was announced as a budget price game for the PSP (yes that is the original PSP).

Worse Protag-Micaiah art done by Aruko Wada(Fate Stay Night)
Time to stop having Guest Artist redesign characters even if they made Micaiah wear the Female Dark Mage outfit(which is dumb considering she is a light mage)
besides unlocking her from beating her map you will win the All Stats +2 Book which gives you the All Stats +2 Skill

Also a Map that gives you Money for beating it don't see why anyone would buy this Money never seems to be a problem in FE but hey it's replayable(like all the dlc Maps) so you can use it for extra exp like the other DLC stages and get extra money while doing it.

And Alm art by HACCAN at least HACCAN only changed his gloves and shoe's color and added some more gold trimming to his armor instead of going with a complete redesign like Roy and Micaiah.
besides unlocking him from beating his map you also get a new class  Demon Fighter by using the Demon Fighter Scroll you receive  to turn a Male unit into a Demon Fighter.

Nintendo Will Let Retailers Set Their Own Prices For Downloadable 3DS Games (http://www.siliconera.com/2012/04/26/nintendo-will-let-retailers-set-their-own-prices-for-downloadable-3ds-games/)
Quote
Starting with New Super Mario Bros. 2, you’ll be able to buy more of Nintendo’s first-party Nintendo 3DS titles either via retail stores or download them to your SD card via the Nintendo eShop. At an investor conference, Nintendo’s president broke down the three ways you’ll be able to do this:
 Buy the game in a box from a store like you usually do.
Download the game directly off the Nintendo eShop using your Internet connection.
Buy the download version of the game from a store.
 That last one is a little complicated, so let’s understand what it really means. It means that you’ll be able go to a store that sells videogames, pay them money specifically for the download version of the game you want to buy, and in exchange, they will give you a 16-digit code, which you will then have to enter into the Nintendo eShop to download your game.
 There’s another catch to this process, too. Nintendo are allowing retailers to set their own individual prices for downloadable versions of their games. This means that the download version of New Super Mario Bros. 2 may not cost the same, depending on which store you buy it from. Retailers will have the option to slash the download version’s price at their own stores if they feel the need to. Effectively, this means you’ll be able to go bargain hunting for downloadable versions of games if you don’t buy them directly off the eShop in your own home.
 Nintendo didn’t specify whether this would apply to both first-party and third-party games, or whether it would also apply to games that are download-only.
 If you’re asking yourself why it’s being made possible to buy download games from retail stores, Nintendo say it’s being done in order to make downloadable games available to 3DS owners without credit cards, as well as to users who don’t feel comfortable inputting their credit card numbers. They also feel that allowing people to buy downloadable software at stores will help lower the psychological barrier against it.
 Finally, Nintendo believe that allowing for downloadable games at retailers will also help increase exposure of digital download products on the whole, and help increase a product’s lifespan without a retailer needing to reserve shelf space for it.

Quote
God of War: Ascension would have similiarities to Nintendo's Legend of Zelda and include a co-op mode, if David Jaffe were making the game, the developer has revealed.
 Speaking in an upcoming issue of games™ magazine, the God of War creator said that if he was tasked with making a fourth God of War he'd incorporate three specific elements.
 "[I'd] bring in different myths, add a very robust and meaningful co-star (I think lots and lots can be done story wise with co-op play), and look to the Zelda structure as a jumping off point. Hyper violent Legend of Zelda? Yes please!" Jaffe said as part of the God of War: Ascension feature in the upcoming issue 22 of games™.
 Regarding a co-op mode, Jaffe added: "That could be cool. I could see that working. I'd love to see player one be Kratos and player two be this stupid annoying sidekick that - for some to be determined story reason - Kratos is stuck with for the whole adventure and in the end, once the main quest is over, Kratos just snaps the poor kid's neck."

For a game that Japan is using to help solve their lowering birth rates I think it looks interesting and fun. Too bad a game with this kind of theme would never be translated. I mean, you're playing as highschool Kony.

Unexpected.

SPIKE CHUNSOFT LAUNCHES 'CONCEPTION: Please Have My Babies'*, DUNGEON CRAWL RPG FOR PSP®

Granvania was facing a crisis invaded by KEGARE (demonic creatures) arise from disorder of the stars. The player will be treated as MAREBITO meaning a messiah in Granvania. The adventure to save the world and to get back to the usual world begins.

KEGARE can only be beaten by MAREBITO and STAR CHILDREN, the children between MAREBITO and zodiac maidens. Maidens cannot fight with KEGARE but can bear STAR CHILDREN. As the player forms a stronger bond with maidens, a more powerful STAR CHILD will be born. Deepen your love with maidens and have strong babies.

A god of KEGARE lives in the deepest floor of star labyrinth. Each time the player visits the labyrinth, its level layout and rewards are randomized.

Sega's confirmed that its respected Europe and America CEO, Mike Hayes will leave the company this summer, after 8 years running the Western business.
http://www.computerandvideogames.com/345715/sega-useuro-boss-to-leave-after-8-years/
Quote
Mike has taken the decision to pursue his interests by looking at advisory and non-exec roles both in and outside of the industry, the company's said in a statement.

Mike joined Sega in 2004 and has overseen the company's evolution from a games console manufacturer to a multiplatform software developer and publisher.

Mike was heavily involved in the acquisitions of both Sports Interactive and The Creative assembly and has moved the House of Sonic towards a more digital based strategy.

Naoya Tsurumi, President and Representative Director, said of the news: "Mike has achieved a huge amount during his time at SEGA and we thank him for the amazing things he has accomplished.

"Mike is a great character and very passionate about the industry, he helped steer the extraordinary growth of SEGA and has built an exceptional team of professionals that will stand us in good stead for the future."

God of War: Ascension has online and offline multiplayer battles for up to eight players. There are a variety of multiplayer modes, customisable avatar warriors, armour and weapon types to unlock. Eurogamer's Johnny Minkley saw it in action for a God of War: Ascension preview, published today.

Multiplayer "combines the brutal gameplay and large-scale battles that God of War is known for to create a competitive experience like never before", Sony said. According to game director Todd Pappy it's a "fresh twist" on competitive gaming.

But the game has single-player, too, this time with a "revamped" combat and weapon system, "promptless" mini-games and new puzzles. Sony mentioned "fluid, life-like characters, dynamic lighting effects, and world-changing scenarios".

Pappy told Eurogamer Ascension's campaign is "just a little bit shorter" than in previous God of War games. "We've mapped out everything and given time estimates. It'll be pretty damn close."

And lead combat designer Jason McDonald insisted that single-player has not suffered as a result of the addition of multiplayer. "We didn't want to sacrifice single-player for multiplayer, neither did we want to tack [the latter] on," he said. "We're definitely going full force with both."

Quote
As for the story, Ascension sees players assume the role of Kratos as he tries to break the blood oath that binds him to Ares. Since this is a prequel, we get to see a younger Kratos, one driven mad after bring tricked into killing his wife and child. In the game Kratos "seeks to break his bond and gain the clarity to seek revenge on Ares for his part in the death of his family". Helping is his signature double-chained blades.

The multiplayer can potentially be really good if they go about it like Mass Effect did and make it so you can play many ways with the classes, only better because it's PvP. Though I think they'll probably just fuck it up.

It sold enough for it's genre and it being a budget title(well....i's not a AAA title and mainly referred as a budget title), I find it funny people forget beat em ups usually don't go past 2 mil most of the time.

And I don't care if GoW sells more, it's a stupid series that should have died with the 1st game, or atleast had a change of guard.....

That's not even close....


The reason why I stated GoW should hve ended for Kratos at the first one is precisely what they were aiming for:
A Greek Tragedy

The first one had all of what made it just that and I cant deny that.....but then, it went on and on and on.....not even being a Greek Tragedy and now a stupid revenge story when it's not even that. Not to mention the game has around 5-6 games compared to Bayonetta's ONE.

If anything, I'm acting more like a Psychonauts fan or Beyond Good and Evil fan. As the game was good but is now mainly screwed.

Post by: Tyrant Belial on May 02, 2012, 07:16:01 am
Greek Tragedy? He becomes the GOD OF WAR at the end. HE ESCAPES FROM HADES. Where does tragedy come into it? The family thing was one thing, that's the only tragedy, and if you think that's sad you should read real greek mythology to depress yourself. (Hades was one of the nicer gods). it always was a Revenge story, only thing that changed after the first game was he hated all the gods instead of 1 because the others also fucked him over afterwards.

But seriously stop jizzing over female characters you like.

I found the Ninja Theory joke funny too.

Post by: Moon Girard on May 02, 2012, 07:34:26 am

Greek Tragedy? He becomes the GOD OF WAR at the end. HE ESCAPES FROM HADES. Where does tragedy come into it? The family thing was one thing, that's the only tragedy, and if you think that's sad you should read real greek mythology to depress yourself. (Hades was one of the nicer gods). it always was a Revenge story, only thing that changed after the first game was he hated all the gods instead of 1 because the others also fucked him over afterwards.

But seriously stop jizzing over female characters you like.

I found the Ninja Theory joke funny too.
Ugh, You seriously don't get it, do you?(although the fact you missed my point by stating I love Bayonetta for her body already makes your point clear....)

So I'll make this clear:
God of War 1 had EVERYTHING a Greek Tragedy has:
A Hero that basically has one huge flaw that will lead to his downfall with a real bad past
A connection to the Greek Gods(they must have been involved)
And basically him realizing that his flaw, but it being way too late to save him from his inevitable fate and now must live or die in misery.

And it was NEVER a revenge story. Kratos fucked himself MULTIPLE TIMES, his anger is literally his own worst enemy(and it's been shown COUNTLESS times that it is correct) and he basically screwed over the gods and THE ENTIRE WORLD for his "revenge". Saying it was always a revenge story is stupid as all hell as it was never close to that, it basically became one, but it was never started as one.

Yeah Greek gods seems to be jerks Soul Calibur is another good example of it in games, Hephaestus Sends several untrained warriors out to die ruins Sophitia and her families life same for Aeon then Ares decide to use Aeon for his own plans and to kill Hephaestus who decide to send more untrained warriors out to die against Nightmare or get eaten by Aeon while making them stronger best part is Which characters in the game have a destined battle against Aeon, The CaS characters so basically your making characters for Aeon to devour.

At Tokyo Game Show, Xseed Games announced they would bring Grand Knights History, Vanillaware’s network RPG to North America. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen.

Xseed Games sent us an e-mail saying they are unable to publish Grand Knights History. Development resources to localize the game are not available, so Xseed had to cancel the title. We hear Vanillware is putting all of their energy into completing Dragon’s Crown, which Atlus’ acquired the rights to from Ignition.

http://www.siliconera.com/2012/05/02/microsoft-to-launch-99-xbox-360-kinect-bundle-but-theres-a-catch/
Quote
Technology news site, The Verge, are reporting that Microsoft will launch a suprise 4GB Xbox 360 + Kinect bundle next week for the low price of $99. The catch? That it comes with a mandatory two-year subscription to Xbox Live, which will cost you $15 per month.

 

Let’s do the math to see just how much value this bundle really offers the consumer. Here’s what it would look like if you bought all of these components and services by yourself separately:

$200 (4GB Xbox 360) + $100 (Kinect) + $120 (Subscribe to Xbox Live Gold for 2 years) = $420

Here’s what it looks like if you buy and Xbox 360 and Kinect, but then buy Xbox Live Gold membership cards off Amazon instead of a monthly subscription:

$200 (4GB Xbox 360) + $100 (Kinect) + $100 (Two Xbox Live Gold cards) = $400

And finally, here’s what this new “$99” bundle works out to:

$100 (4GB Xbox 360 and Kinect) + $360 (For $15 per-month Xbox Live Gold) = $460

That said, the Verge say that the 2-year Gold subscription with the bundle will come with some additional streaming content from cable providers or sports package providers, although this content hasn’t been detailed yet. You will also be allowed to terminate the $15 per-month Gold subscription, but for an unnamed fee. More details will presumably be available next week.

What?

Masahiro Sakurai, creator of Kirby, Smash Bros. and Kid Icarus Uprising, decided to sneak into a particular game studio today in order to get a sneak peak at the studio's games ahead of E3.
 While Sakurai did not identify the target of his sneaking work by name, he did share a picture:
 So what did Sakurai see at this studio? Sadly, we may never know, as he says he was caught within two seconds... possibly by Atsushi Inaba who Tweeted, "@Sora_Sakurai spotted!"
 Sakurai feels that he might have made it in if he'd had a box in his inventory.

Quote
This morning, Ubisoft announced Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth, a game for the Wii U and Microsoft’s Kinect. Battle for Earth will be a motion-controlled game, although Ubisoft haven’t announced just how it will be played on the two platforms.
 The game will have the classic Avengers—Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and Hulk—fighting of an invasion of genetically-altered Skrulls, but will also have other Marvel characters. Whether or not these characters will be playable hasn’t been announced, but Ubisoft say that Battle for Earth will have over 20 Marvel characters, and will be based on the Secret Invasion comic series.
 Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth is being developed by Ubisoft Quebec and will be released sometime this fall. “Fans of the Marvel universe and superhero games are going to love the extensive combinations of characters, motion-controlled
moves and competitive gameplay,” said Tony Key, Ubisoft’s U.S. Senior VP of Sales and Marketing.

Rumor: Kinect-Controlled Web-Browsing Coming to the Xbox 360 with Internet Explorer (http://kotaku.com/5909314/rumor-kinect+controlled-web+browsing-coming-to-the-xbox-360-with-internet-explorer)
Quote
In yet another evolution of Xbox rumor, The Verge reports today that Microsoft's game console will be adding full web-browsing functionality with a special version of their Internet Explorer software.
 The article claims that users won't need to have the Kinect motion-sensing accessory to use the modified browser, but the software's been tuned to work with gestural input. This version of IE will also reportedly use the Bing voice recognition search to initiate searches and deliver webpages.
 This rumor has the ring of truth since it's a conceptual extension of the same thinking that brought Bing to the Xbox 360. Integration of social networks like Twitter and Facebook has existed on the 360 for a while now, but there's been a conspicuous lack of robust web-browsing on the home console. The Verge successfully outed the existence of the $99 subsidized Xbox 360, so they may be on the money here as well.

Capcom will release a not yet officially anounced limited art book related to the 25th Anniversary of Street Fighter. This book is 64 pages strong full of the submissions to their anniversary project. Many Images are also from the Game Art HQ (yes thats my site and i am fucking proud!) SF Tribute Project. The book will most likely be officially announced in July.

A 25th Anniversary Project of the MegaMan Series is also planned by Capcom, but dont expect something before September from the official side.

Wait, so the submissions were for their anniversary project, submited by the artists, and what you have is a website that tries to get fanart, and some of the art crosses over because they ended up in both?
Title: Re: gaming news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: "Bad News" Hoffmann on May 12, 2012, 12:45:59 pm
Nah

The submissions were for the Game Art HQ tribute which was started by me in October 2011 already the most of them were drawn in 2011 already as well. Capcoms own tribute was announced 3 weeks ago on april 18th. 2 weeks ago Capcom asked me to promote their tribute, in return they promoted the Game Art HQ SF Tribute via their capcom unity website, facebook and twitter. I am never using artworks an artist made for anything else than a project i organized, i dont want my projects to be just a collection.

I negotiated with capcom that artists can submit entries to them which were drawn for the Game Art HQ SF Tribute and it seems they were quite happy about it because they mentioned they would like to work with me again on an upcoming MegaMan tribute later this year. This will be funny since i organized a MM1 tribute in january already with over 20 artists onboard which is strictly about MM1 while capcom plans something for the whole series.

There are at least 11 fan artworks in the official SF tribute Anniversary book now which were drawn originally for my Game Art HQ Project, at least 5 of them were submitted by the artists after i told them about the capcom project :-)

As a big SF fan by myself it makes me quite proud i could create a project with around 250 artists participating (its not complete yet) and that it was promoted by capcom and websites like eventhubs, and hey i get a gratis copy of the limited artbook too :)

The next fan art project there is a 20th Anniversary of Kirby Tribute by exactly 20 artists, more or less all Kirby Characters and Games will be featured in that one, it will be published in July


What did you mean by " what you have is a website that tries to get fan art" lol. Artists ask me to feature their work actually.
Title: Re: gaming news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: Iced on May 12, 2012, 01:03:38 pm
i mean that its a collection website and not a development website, like you said, you dont do anything other than organizing contests for people to enter of their own volition, you dont pay them or train them .  you just had made it sound as if it was a bigger thing.
Saying projects over and over again was making it sound weird. Contests would be a better definition ( if you have prizes or awards , Tributes if you dont and are just supplying the theme)

With your explanation i can understand it was what i thought it was in the beginning.

Title: Re: gaming news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: "Bad News" Hoffmann on May 12, 2012, 01:14:47 pm
Exactly i dont pay or train, the benefit for the artists is just like on Overclocked Remix the fun to share their skills in an art project/tribute/contest and maybe the hope to get a bit more publicity

What i do is developing ideas, the theme, making rules and guidelines,setting deadlines and what exactly can b claimed to get drawn,  publish the works of the artists and promote them.

Paying people for drawings would be great but so far the website only makes enough money to get the server costs paid trough it..who knows..maybe in 5 years it will be different ^^ wish me luck

Capcom Announces Ex Troopers for PS3 and 3DS
Strange choice of consoles.
Quote
Famitsu has first word on a new Capcom title this week. Titled Ex Troopers, this action shooting game is being developed for PS3 and 3DS release under the watch of producer Shintaro Kojima (Monster Hunter series).

Ex Troopers shares the same world view as Lost Planet. However, the game has an anime visual style and a school-themed story. According to a summary of Famitsu's article from Sinobi, the game looks like a science fiction Justice Gakuen. Between stages, the game uses a "manga demo" event system similar to what was used in Gravity Rush. Capcom will be using May'n for the game's theme song.

We'll likely get additional details from Famitsu later in the day, and a first look later in the week, so be sure and check back!

Lost Planet offshoot EX Troopers may have just been announced this week, but it's already set for a playable debut. The game will appear at the Capcom Summer Jam event in playable form. Capcom Summer Jam will be held at Tokyo Big Site on June 30 and July 1.

Here are some additional details on EX Troopers from Famitsu's reveal article and a summary at Sokuho.

EX Troopers tells of the fight between the snow pirates and Akrid aliens on EDN-3rd. You play as Bren Turner, a young man who's come to the academy (the game has a school theme) from EDN-2nd. Famitsu also introduces such characters as TeeKee, a female snow pirate who has the ability to communicate with the Akrid, and Gingira, a Vital Suit that's loaded with next generation AI and can communicate with its pilot. Gingira calls Bren "Master."

The EDN-3rd planet has three bases, each with unique traits. You select one of these to serve as your base of operations. The three bases figure into the story, as while Bren comes from one base, other members of the academy come from different bases. The story will be told through "manga demo" cut scenes (similar to Gravity Rush).

Famitsu managed to get some interview time with Shintaro Kojima, the game's producer (previous work on the Monster Hunter series). The game was started with the hope of making a beginners' action shooter, explained Kojima. While EX Troopers shares its world setting with Lost Planet, they hope that players play it lightly as a new title.

Unfortunately, the reveal article does not seem to have much in the way of gameplay details. But with a playable debut coming next month, we'll hopefully get details over the coming weeks.

EX Troopers will see 3DS and PS3 release some time this year. The game is currently 60% complete, Famitsu reports. Capcom is also planning developments outside of games for the title



Nomura: New Titles Take Priority Over Final Fantasy VII Remake (http://andriasang.com/con116/nomura_on_ffvii/)
Quote
Famitsu has an anniversary feature on Final Fantasy VII this week, complete with an interview with character designer Tetsuya Nomura.

In the interview, Nomura admits that there is much desire for a Final Fantasy VII remake. However, the focus is now on making new titles, he says. They're working to make these new games match or even top Final Fantasy VII.

Nomura also says that he personally believes Yoshinori Kitase is the true successor to the FF series.

The Nomura interview also included some development trivia. The Yufie character was originally planned to be a wanted person, according to Nomura. In Midgar, you'd see wanted posters showing her face. Each poster would have a different face, and the Yufie that joined your party would have the face of the last poster that you saw.
Then why are we getting a FFX HD remake and not VS. 13.



Baba Talks Next Tales With Famitsu (http://andriasang.com/con115/next_tales/)
Quote
Similar to last week's Jump, this week's Famitsu has a teaser look at the new "Next Tales of" game that Namco Bandai will be announcing in early June. But unlike Jump, Famitsu managed to get some commentary from series producer Hideo Baba.

Baba confirmed that the game is indeed a mothership title. The catch phrase for the game is "Are you prepared to destroy the world for the girl?" This phrase apparently has some ties to both the story and gameplay systems.

Previous titles were "high fantasy" games with swords and magic. This time, the game will have a more modern theme. The game's world view will be thick with cultural elements.

Despite these changes, Baba assured that the game will have the Tales play feel. However, he also said to consider this the team's challenge to take the Tales series to the next stage.

Outside of the new Tales mothership game, Baba said that Namco Bandai has other Tales games in development.

He also commented on the the recent closure of Tales Studio. The studio's staff moved into Namco Bandai. He believes this change will have some positive effects, as members of the Tales team can move to the Idolmaster team, and members of the Soul Calibur and Taiko Drum Master teams come to the Tales team.

Capcom is 're-evaluating' its DLC policies because enough people started crying about it.
Quote
Capcom has taken heavy fire from gamers upset with the publisher's tendency to ship some of its games with on-disc downloadable content. Physical copies of games like Dragon's Dogma and Street Fighter X Tekken ship with content that you can only access if you dish out extra for the privilege.

Capcom Senior Vice-President Christian Svensson addressed the controversy in a blog post last night, saying the company plans to revisit its DLC strategy soon:

We've been getting several questions, here and elsewhere about the future of on-disc DLC.
We would like to assure you that we have been listening to your comments and as such have begun the process of re-evaluating how such additional game content is delivered in the future. As this process has only just commenced in the past month or so, there will be some titles, where development began some time ago and that are scheduled for release in the coming months, for which we are unable to make changes to the way some of their post release content is delivered.


In other words, upcoming titles like Dragon's Dogma, out May 22, can't be changed. It's too late to remove that game's on-disc DLC. But Capcom might approach its projects differently in the future. Or so they say.

SFxT, go to ELITE CHANNEL
+ find your Unreleased On-Disc DLC characters kicking ass.
+ realize it was a stupid idea to begin with
+ remove it from the PC version, because haxors will get it.

I don't think it's about people starting to cry (lol this has been an issue all along since it was discovered) but more like Capcom realizing they lose face by doing it, and that people will crack it anyway ... so it's not good business.

So if the Content is already done by the time the game release does it make a difference if it's on-disc,off-disc or on another disc. does it not being on the disc make it better let's say the 12 characters were done but not on the disc is that better than them being on the disc either way you can't access finished content it being off the disc just makes it easier for people to fall for it.

Anyway

Amazon lists Wii U games for $49.99 i assume this is a placeholder for the real price i can't see third party developers selling there games for 10 dollars less on the Wii U while they are still $60 on PS3 and 360 Nintendo selling their games for 50 i could see though.

I don't have as much of a problem with it as most people do.  If content is going to be downloadable no matter what, I'd rather have it on the disc to begin with so it doesn't eat the memory on my console.

Also, that retail version is just plain stupid, since in each Budokai Tenkaichi games they always cover the same then add more things, like GT saga. Just grab the BT3 and that's it, you're going to have everything.

2K's XCOM delayed a year plus Max Payne 3 DLC stuff (http://2K's XCOM delayed a year plus Max Payne 3 DLC stuff)
Quote
2K's new XCOM FPS has been delayed yet again. The game will now launch some time between 1st April 2013 and March 31st 2014, according to publisher Take-Two's quarterly financial report.

It had been due for release in the current fiscal year. No reason was offered for the hold up. Traditional strategy effort XCOM: Enemy Unknown is still due for release in October.

The publisher's report also offered a few Max Payne 3 updates. The PC version of Rockstar's recent sequel is available from 1st June, with a beefy DLC schedule following after that:

    Local Justice Map Pack (DLC) - June
    Disorganized Crime Map Pack (DLC) - Summer
    Deathmatch Made In Heaven Mode Pack (DLC) - Summer
    Hostage Negotiation Map Pack (DLC) - Summer
    New York Minute Co-Op Pack (DLC) - Summer
    Painful Memories Map Pack (DLC) - Autumn
    Trickle Down Economics Map Pack (DLC) - Autumn

Grand Theft Auto 5 is still listed as "TBA".

It wasn't a bumper quarter for the publisher. It reported net revenue of $148.1 million, down from $182.3 million this time last year.

Revenue for the entire fiscal year came in at $825.8 million, as compared to $1,136.9 million last year.

"Fiscal 2012 was a year of creative, operational and strategic achievement by our Company," said CEO Strauss Zelnick.

"We delivered groundbreaking titles, including L.A. Noire and NBA 2K12, which set new standards for excellence; grew our revenue from digitally delivered content and mobile offerings; made substantial progress on our online gaming initiatives; and bolstered our already strong liquidity through a convertible notes offering.

"While our financial results were disappointing, the decisions we made position Take-Two for growth and profitability both this year and over the long-term."


Yakuza 5: Five Cities, Five Main Characters (http://andriasang.com/con13k/yakuza_5_details/)
Quote
Sega appears to be going with a "5" theme for Yakuza 5. Joining the previously announced five cities, the game will also have five main characters. This is one up from previous titles, which have had at most four main characters.

The full Japanese name for Yakuza 5, as revealed in Famitsu this week, is "Ryu ga Gotoku 5: Yume Kanaeshi Mono." A rough (very rough) translation would be "Yakuza 5: Person Who Fulfills Dreams."

This early report from Famitsu comes via our usual flying get source, Sinobi. Sinobi also says that the game seems like it may be released in December (the phrasing suggests that it's not stated directly in the magazine).

As detailed in November, the five cities were previously announced as Sapporo, Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka. Series producer Toshihiro Nagoshi also previously confirmed that Kazuma Kiryu would be one of the main characters.

It's unclear at present if Famitsu has additional character reveals, but we should be getting more details later in the day.


Keiji Inafune Working on Level-5's Guild 02
Sequel announced before Guild 01's release.
 (http://andriasang.com/con13o/guild02_announcement/)
Quote
Before Guild 01's release, Level-5 has announced a followup. This week's Famitsu has first details on Guild 02.

According to Sinobi's quick summary of the magazine, Guild 02 will feature contributions from former Capcom great Keiji Inafune, Mini Kitchen's Kazu Ayabe (My Summer Vacation series) and Takemaru Abiko and Kazuya Asano of Otogiriso fame (a summary of this CunSoft classic here.)

That's all the info contained in Sinobi's Tweet about the game, but we'll hopefully have additional details later. We should also be getting a review score for Guild 01, which sees release next week.

It's not going to be a MMO if you can't create your own character.  :-\

I remember reading an interview made by one of the shitty developers of it about DC Universe. He was like "Yeah that DC game is pretty good, but no one wants to play as their own creation, everyone just wants to be Batman. That's why for our project, we're going to be doing just that." I'm going to try to fetch a link for it but it made me upset

Today, Marvel and Gazillion Entertainment showed off the first in-game trailer for Marvel Heroes, an upcoming free-to-play MMO set in the Marvel Comics universe, along with new details of the game. Take a look at the short trailer below:

Did the trailer remind you of Diablo? That’s because Gazillion Entertainment’s president is David Brevik, who was co-founder of Blizzard North, the original Diablo and Diablo II developer, before they parted ways with the rest of Blizzard. “Marvel Heroes represents the combination of Marvel IP with all of the knowledge and experience I gained creating Diablo,” Brevik says about the game.

Marvel Heroes will include familiar locales from the various Marvel comics, including Hell’s Kitchen (Daredevil), the Savage Land (X-Men) and Mutant Town. In the Marvel universe’s version of Midtown Manhattan and locales like the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning, you’ll be able to meet other players, select missions, buy items from identifiable Marvel characters and so on.

 
Players will be able to customize their Marvel heroes by finding costumes from each character’s storied history, and by assigning different powers to them. As far as characters go, you’ll be able to recruit a bunch of Marvel’s identifiable characters, going from popular ones like the Avengers to more obscure ones like Squirrel Girl and Ka-Zar.

http://www.courthousenews.com/2012/05/22/46716.htm
Quote
A judge has recommended that the Xbox 360 be banned in the US.

Courthouse News reports that Judge David Shaw said the International Trade Commission should use a cease and desist order to ban imports of the Xbox 360 Slim 4GB and 250GB models into the US because, in his view, they infringe on four patents owned by Motorola.

He also wants Microsoft to post a bond equal to seven per cent of the value of unsold Xbox 360s in the US.

The patents at the heart of the dispute revolve around how the Xbox 360 decodes video content. Motorola claims ownership on the tech powering this.

Reacting to this latest decision, Microsoft argued the ban would not serve the public interest because it would leave consumers with only two home console options: the PlayStation 3 and the Nintendo Wii. But the judge rejected the claim, saying it was more important to enforce intellectual property rights. Plus, he wasn't convinced Sony and Nintendo wouldn't be able to meet increased demand.

Microsoft said the suggested seven per cent bond was unnecessary, and recommended it be reduced to 2.5 per cent. Motorola wants it increased to a whopping 100 per cent of the value of the unsold Xbox 360s.

So what happens next in this long-running, complex patent dispute? If the ITC makes the judge's recommendation final, President Barack Obama will then have 60 days to review the decision. After that period expires, the next step is the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

Earlier this month a US judge accused the warring factions of using the US District Court as "a pawn in a global, industry-wide business negotiation".

Judge James Robart said both sides were clearly "driven by an attempt to secure commercial advantage". "To an outsider looking at it, it has been arbitrary, it has been arrogant and frankly it has been based on hubris," he said.

A German court has already ruled in favour of Motorola, granting an injunction prohibiting sales of the console in the country. However, Robart issued a temporary restraining order preventing Motorola from enforcing that decision.

360 owners probably won't be affected I don't think but no one will be able to BUY them until Microsoft pays the court. Microsoft won't let 360s be banned here, I'm certain, but if they do then I don't doubt that Microsoft might cut off Xbox Live for us.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-05-23-wii-u-darksiders-2-graphics-at-least-as-good-as-ps3-xbox-360-versions

"The graphics of the Wii U version of Darksiders 2 are "at least as good" as the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions', developer Vigil has said.

Game companies and developers are under strict orders not to discuss the Wii U in detail publicly, a directive that has led to speculation about the horsepower of Nintendo's Wi successor. Indeed one report from earlier this year claimed the Wii U was "not as capable" as the PS3 and Xbox 360.

But with final developer kits now with engineers, and Nintendo just two weeks away from unveiling the final version of the hardware at E3, Vigil has insisted Wii U owners will see visual parity when it comes to multiplatform games.

"The visuals will be the same," associate producer Jay Fitzloff told Eurogamer. "It's still a work in progress. But I know, at least as good is the way to say it."

Then you extract the files or whatever technical voodoo is done.

Or can you imagine downloading 40-50GB big games? Internet went faster of course but most regions still have only like 6mb connections
Who said they're getting rid of disc drives?

digital download ~= cloud/streaming.

afaik, they stream video/render the game on a separate server, you don't need to download the game.

Post by: "Bad News" Hoffmann on May 24, 2012, 11:12:54 pm
I only tried to bring up an argument which is related to mugen since we are on a mugen related forum ^^ Personally i didnt play Mugen since years now, i wouldnt care a lot about the negative aspects of cloud gaming to the mugen community but thought that example shows one of the many small negative sides of cloud gaming.

My personal reason to be totally against cloud gaming is that i dont have any form of the files at home..be it on physical media or at least the files, but i prefer having the physical media.

Cloud gaming means only renting the right to play a game, and if your internet has connection issues well you are screwed. Worse is that you dont rent the rights for a "life time" ..instead you are only renting them for a amount of time and you cant be sure you will be able to play game xxx again in 5 years since it can be the company doesnt support that game anymore since only a small group of people still plays it.

cloud gaming sounds like a pretty good deal to me. it will make hardware dirt cheap, everything will be platform independent (goodbye windows, lol), cheating in online games will become a lot harder, it will get rid of the need for obtrusive drm methods...

it's win-win for everyone I think.[avatar]//mugenguild.com/~valodim/twi/cloud.png[/avatar]

Trying to make the argument "but but mugen" was weird.  you make it sound as if you think anyone that is into mugen actually would think such an argument would be valid and not dumb.
Cloud computing sounds pretty good of an idea where you are always online, but its limited by the ideal connection speed thing. there would be a need for a balance for what you could do online and off, or just be perpetually online, like you do with things like iphone. ( you can be offline, but you are not using half the potential )

No new Final Fantasy XIV trailer at E3, moved to August instead
http://lodestone.finalfantasyxiv.com/pl/teaser/index.html
http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/threads/46535
Quote
There have been some changes to the roadmap for version 2.0. We had planned to release a new trailer for version 2.0 at E3 this year, but instead we’ve decided to keep it under wraps for now.
(The current version of the roadmap has been updated to reflect this.)

The devs, Visual Works, Sound, PR—everyone did their part and the trailer itself was completed and ready for release at E3. But during our most recent global PR planning meeting, we came to the conclusion that the most effective way to introduce version 2.0 to the world would be with a flood of new material rather than just a trickle.

In order to make version 2.0 a success, we need to appeal to not only our current players (naturally!), but also as many new players as possible, including PS3 owners. I really am sorry for the changes to the roadmap, but I really hope you understand that they were made with appealing to as many of you as possible in mind. We want to place the highest priority on keeping the 2.0 development schedule on track and on time, and prepare a large-scale promotional campaign filled with mind-blowing stuff!

For myself, I’m shifting into super producer mode for the release of version 2.0.
I’m in Japan right now, but will soon be winging my way to LA for E3.

As mentioned in my previous missive, the focus of this letter will be the third edition of the Players’ Poll, but before we get into that I have a few things I’d like to report.

Well, the public release of version 2.0 is set to kickoff with this year’s E3 in Los Angeles. We also plan to unveil a brand new promotion site for version 2.0 soon after E3 ends.

This new site will feature world lore, character, system, and content updates as soon as the information is available. This means that our existing players will have the chance to follow these updates and see how the current world of FFXIV will transform as we move into version 2.0

So no FFvs13 news no FFXIV what will they talk about for FF at E3 more FFXIII-2 DLC FFXIII-3 a FFXV or that FFX HD remake.

Every information about the WiiU so far gives me that impression though.

Most likely the WiiU`s graphical capabilities are on par or a bit higher than the XB360 and the PS3, but nothing implies it will have technique far ahead of the current gen consoles, while its getting released in 2012 the technique seems to be similar to that of 2005/2006

All the info released hints to a current gen console type of thing. 1 generation behind, like the Wii is, with their absolute denial to move to HD and powerful shit.

So according to this guy Microsoft is changing DLC's name to APC(additional paid content) if this is true i think it's one of the greatest idea in the history of scamming it's pretty much hey we can put DLC on the disc and don''t have to have PR deal with it and you can't report us cause no where does it say downloadable only additional.

And so my post doesn't seem wasted on a crazy rumor.

Quote
With THQ shares trading at nearly 50 cents a share, it's clear that the battered publisher needs to turn itself around.

Outspoken THQ EVP Danny Bilson is leaving the company "to pursue other interests." While Bilson has been key in refocusing THQ on "core games," another new hire should cement that direction even further: Jason Rubin, co-founder of Uncharted developer Naughty Dog.

Effective immediately, Rubin will take over as president of THQ, and will be responsible for all of THQ's worldwide development, marketing and publishing operations. THQ CEO Brian Farrell said in a prepared statement: "Jason's proven track record in the industry speaks for itself, and he is one of the brightest minds in the business. We believe he can be a game changer and can contribute immensely to executing on our strategy of delivering quality connected core game experiences."

"THQ has incredible internal and external game development teams, and an exciting slate of games in its development pipeline," Jason Rubin said in a press release. "The recent transformation of THQ into a creator of wholly-owned IP has placed it in a perfect position to leverage future trends in the game business."

Rubin is certainly joining THQ at an interesting time. While the company has continuously underperformed, its upcoming library includes some of Shacknews' most-wanted games, including Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes 2.

THQ also announced that Danny Bilson, EVP Core Games, is leaving to pursue other interests. "Danny has made significant contributions to THQ, and we thank him for his efforts," said Mr. Farrell. In addition, the company announced that Dave Davis, SVP Core Studios, will be leaving. "Along with Danny, Dave has been instrumental in getting our strong pipeline into production," Mr. Farrell continued.

Quote
We've heard little about Monster Hunter 4 since its announcement, but that will change shortly. Capcom updated the Capcom Summer Jam official site today with notice of a Monster Hunter series stage for the weekend event. The stage will include the latest information on MH4.

Resident Evil 6 will also be in the spotlight as part of its own stage. Capcom promises "first Japanese reveal" information for the stage. The wording makes it sound like the event will just recap announcements made previously overseas, but we'll have to tune in this weekend to be sure.

Capcom Summer Jam will be held on June 30 and July 1 at Tokyo Big Site.

Capcom was previously promising an update on the event for the 31st, which is tomorrow. The MH4 and RE6 stage details were quickly removed after posting, so it's possible that this was an early leak.

New Doom 3 For Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 Supports Head-Mounted Displays

A Doom 3 BFG Edition is coming to the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this fall with "hours of new content" including a seven-level solo section called "The Lost Mission".


"DOOM 3 was enthusiastically embraced by gamers worldwide at its release," id's technical director (and Doom co-creator) John Carmack said in today's press-release. "Today, the full experience has been enhanced and extended to be better than ever, and is delivered across all the platforms with a silky smooth frame rate and highly responsive controls. New support for 3D TVs, monitors, and head mounted displays also allows players to experience the game with more depth than ever before. We think shooter fans everywhere will love it."

The Doom 3 BFG Edition will include the original game, the already-released add-on Resurrection Evil, the 2004-era Doom 3 with "greatly enhanced graphics", a checlpoint save system and copies of Doom 1 and Doom 2 and...

"DOOM 3 now features the new armor-mounted flashlight, allowing players to illuminate dark corners and blast enemies at the same time."

Sony close to agreeing cloud gaming acquisition (http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/sony-close-to-agreeing-cloud-gaming-acquisition/096914)
Quote
In a move that will rock the next generation of console gaming, Sony is close to agreeing an acquisition of a high profile cloud gaming firm, MCV understands.

It was reported earlier this week that Sony was to reveal a partnership with a cloud gaming firm – specifically either OnLive or Gaikai – at E3 next week.

Subsequent chatter had seemingly calmed the rumours, suggesting that the proposed agreement was to do with Sony streaming TV services, and not consoles.

However, MCV understands that the deal is far more extensive than anyone could have predicted and will see Sony fully acquire one of the two firms. The deal, our source says, “is close to being signed”.

Quote
Titled Star Wars 1313, the internally-developed third-person action adventure game will see players take on the role of a bounty hunter navigating a subterranean metropolis Level 1313, beneath the surface of the planet Coruscant.

While the game will make its formal debut at next week's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), LucasArts announced the game is being development with the help of artists across the Lucasfilm organization, including LucasArts, Industrial Light & Magic, Lucasfilm Animation Ltd. and Skywalker Sound. The game will be based on the Unreal engine and feature full-body performance capture.

Star Wars 1313 will see players utilise "exotic" weapons in a bid to uncover the truth surrounding a criminal conspiracy beneath Coruscant. According to LucasArts, the game will emphasize fast-paced combat--the game's hero will use human skills and gadgets rather than supernatural Force powers. In addition, the game will feature a combination of cover-based combat, platforming and "playable cinematic gameplay".

"Star Wars 1313 dives into a part of the Star Wars mythos that we've always known existed, but never had a chance to visit," LucasArts president Paul Meegan said in a statement.

No details have yet been given on platforms or release date.

Hitman HD Collection spotted for PS3 (http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-06-01-hitman-hd-collection-spotted-for-ps3)
Quote
A trilogy of last-gen Hitman games is being packaged together for re-release on PlayStation 3, a retailer listing suggests.

The Hitman HD Collection will feature Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman 3: Contracts and Hitman: Blood Money. All three will be presented in high definition.

The compilation, spotted on Italian retailer 16Games, is listed for release on 15th October. That gives gamers around a month to sample Hitman's backstory before Hitman: Absolution arrives on 20th November.

Silent Assassin, Contracts and Blood Money make up the second, third and fourth titles in the series, which directly precede upcoming fifth instalment Absolution.

"Enter a world of crime, sin and greed. Penetrate deeper into the recesses of the mind of Agent 47, the world's deadliest assassin. Remaining anonymous, being quick and totally ruthless: these are the keys to a perfect execution," the retail blurb reads.

"Follow Agent 47 while executing orders on behalf of slum-living criminals or on behalf of the highest summits of power. Nothing is important except the target."

Paying thousands to have the opening video animated by... /a/ says Sunrise... is a real poor investment when their pre-existing gameplay footage does a better job of introducing the game and hyping up the player.

Nintendo 3DS Patent Covers Vibrating Stylus, New Kinds of Control That innuendo picture.
http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2012/05/3ds_patent_covers_vibrating_stylus_new_kinds_of_control
Quote
Nintendo's filed a patent for a new kind of input on 3DS — one that requires no physical contact with the console at all.

The application uses the 3DS console's inner-facing camera along with a stylus to manipulate 3D images on the top screen without the need for buttons, touch screen or moving the console.

The inward-facing camera detects a 'marker' applied to the end of a stylus. The 3DS can calculate the marker's position in 3D space based on its size and position, using that information to manipulate an item on the top screen. By moving the stylus further away, the object could appear to 'come out' of the screen; move the stylus nearer and the object would appear to move deeper into the 3D space.

It wouldn't be limited to the inner camera either — the patent shows you could use the same stylus-marker combination to move items behind the machine, rather like moving the cards around in the system's existing Augmented Reality software only with far more flexibility.

The patent also refers to a new kind of stylus with a vibration function, giving you physical feedback when you interact with the virtual items, as well as a marker allowing it to be tracked by the 3DS camera. You wouldn't need this stylus though — the patent also shows the system works if you put the marker on your finger.

Idk but Most Wanted was by far the best NFS in my experience. One of the best launch titles for 360.

IGN: Devs: PS4/Xbox 3 By Jan 2014, Xbox 3 easiest/best selling, Wii U "too complex." (http://ca.ign.com/articles/2012/06/01/the-next-generation-according-to-game-developers)
Quote
The next generation of consoles starts in 2013, if all goes according to developers’ plans. In an anonymous questionnaire, multiple industry professionals told IGN that they plan to release games for the next Microsoft and Sony consoles before January 1, 2014.
Multiple developers also intend to launch software for an unannounced platform next year.
The end is nigh.
Quote
To further signal the winding down of the current console generation, approximately 60% of respondents have no plans to release games for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, or Nintendo Wii after 2013. Of course, this means some 40% intend to keep at current-gen releases after next year. To that point, an anonymous developer told IGN, “I would not be surprised if something atypical cannibalizes the market, maybe even the Xbox 360 itself.”
From a hardware perspective, nearly 80% of respondents said Microsoft’s next console is the easiest to work with, and the overwhelming majority suspect it will be the sales leader over the next five years.
Quote
The ease of use compared to other consoles is assuredly attractive, too. By comparison, 63% of developers who spoke to IGN said the Wii U would be the most challenging platform to develop for. One creator went as far as saying, “we won’t be working on Wii U due to these complexities,” while another lamented the difficulty of moving innovative games unique to Wii U to other platforms. This poses the question: Will Nintendo once again need to rely primarily on first-party games to propel platform success? At any rate, the Wii U’s 2012 release window gives it a distinct advantage: time.

Rumor: Microsoft set to reveal 'Xbox Smart Glass' tablet application at this years E3 (http://www.examiner.com/article/microsoft-set-to-reveal-xbox-smart-glass-tablet-at-this-years-e3?cid=db_articles)
http://www.engadget.com/2012/06/01/microsoft-smart-glass-coming-at-e3-airplay-style-streaming-from/
Quote
The last couple of weeks leading up to E3 have been good for anyone that loves insider information. Today’s leak is the largest one yet, and comes from Microsoft. The people behind "Xbox" and "Xbox Live" will be revealing the Xbox Smart Glass tablet behind closed doors to a select group of people. In the official “Microsoft Confidential” presentation, they specifically noted this:

Xbox Smart Glass is a companion application for Xbox LIVE that will allow users to control their Xbox (e.g., transport controls, content discovery and search). The Xbox Smart Glass companion application will be optimized for Windows Tablets and Phones and also made available to iOS/Android Tablets and Phones.
Activities will be made available within the Xbox Smart Glass companion application. Activities will be tied to existing and new applications on Xbox (e.g., Zune Music will have an activity). We will demo Xbox Smart Glass experiences for nearly all of our major brand partners at E3 (existing plus new partners).
The Xbox Smart Glass companion application will have the ability to play video on Tablets/Phones and send the videos to Xbox to play on the TV.
Additionally, we will demo Xbox Smart Glass capabilities (see slide 12) but at no time will we show any video content playing on a Tablet/Phone device.

Sony to sell downloadable content at GameStops in Europe and Australia (http://www.engadget.com/2012/06/02/sony-to-sell-downloadable-content-at-gamestops-in-europe-and-aus/)
Quote
Sony isn't about to let Nintendo and PC games get a leg up on it in the downloadable content (DLC) arena. That's why the company's European arm (which also runs the show in Australia and New Zealand) is taking its digital wares to GameStop, where customers will be able to use cash, gift cards or trade credits to purchase activation codes for PlayStation Network games and add-ons. All told, some 1,600 stores in Australia, New Zealand, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria and Switzerland will soon be offering the ability to purchase content usually ordered from the comfort of your couch and Crash Bandicoot boxer shorts. The complete PR awaits you after the break.

Star Wars 1313 Website + New Info
http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidthier/2012/06/01/star-wars-1313-is-the-star-wars-game-ive-been-waiting-for/
http://www.giantbomb.com/news/mysterious-lucasarts-project-is-star-wars-1313/4186/
http://www.lucasarts.com/games/1313/
Giantbomb said:
There’s been idle speculation about the Star Wars 1313 trademark floating around for a few months now. Is that the name of the fabled TV show, perhaps a new movie? Nope, it’s a game, and hopefully this is Clint Hocking's project.

Star Wars 1313 will be at E3, and is described by LucasArts as a “mature” take on Star Wars (the website has an age-gate), with players exploring a location called Level 1313 as a “lethal bounty hunter.”

"Star Wars 1313 dives into a part of the Star Wars mythos that we've always known existed, but never had a chance to visit,” said LucasArts president Paul Meegan in the announcement press release.

Are we looking at a Boba Fett adventure? LucasArts isn’t saying yet, but we should know more soon.

Maybe this is E3 2012’s Prey 2. No threats of encountering a guy named Tommy, either.
Forbes said:
Details are very, very scant, and we’ll be waiting for E3 for any kind of blockbuster reveals, but here’s what we know so far: it’s a third-person action adventure game where you play a bounty hunter that makes his kills with gadgets and weapons rather than any “force nonsense.” People have speculated that it might star Boba Fett, and this has neither been confirmed nor denied.


Tales of Xillia 2 Announced (PS3) (http://andriasang.com/con1ac/tales_of_xillia_2/)
Quote
If you guessed Tales of Xillia 2 when Namco Bandai began its "Next Tales of" countdown, you were right! At todays' Tales of Festival event, series producer Hideo Baba confirmed the new game to be Tales of Xillia 2, and shared a first trailer.
The PS3 sequel will take place one year after the original's end. Characters introduced in a trailer include main character Ludgar, his cat Lulu, and a little girl who's said to be the key to the story, Elle.
(Note: In an earlier version of this story, we wrote that Elle is a main character like Ludgar. This appears to be incorrect. It's unclear if the game uses a dual main character system like the first Xillia).
You'll be able to make key choices with Ludgar using L1 and R1. One passage in the trailer involves a decision about using tomatoes in a recipe -- Elle apparently hates tomatoes. Another sequence shows a decision with greater effect -- you're given a choice of facing off against the enemy or backing off. The event proceeds differently depending on your selection.
During battle, Ludgar has a special "weapon shift" ability. He can switch between different weapons, including hammer, dual pistols and dual swords. The battle system in Xillia 2 is known as the "XDR LBMS," or "Cross Double Raid Linear Battle Motion System."
Ayumi Hamasaki will once again do the theme song honors on Xillia 2. Animation is being handled by Ufotable once again.
Although a Winter 2012 release time period was announced at today's broadcast, we'll get a specific date and price on June 27.
An official site for the new game will be opened shortly at tox2.tales-ch.jp.

WWE All-Stars was hands-down WWE's finest wrestling title in years, and at this rate, will likely be for years to come.

But not only THQ kills an entire studio with some of their finest talent, but they shamefully do it at the start of E3 *hoping* nobody was notice?  THQ definitely gets ***my*** slimiest video game publisher of the year award... so far.

THQ sold UFC license after failing to break even (http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2012-06-08-thq-sold-ufc-license-after-failing-to-break-even)
Quote
Analyst Michael Pachter hears the news from THQ management
EA
THQ
www.thq.com

Latest reports suggest that failure to make a profit was the main reason behind THQ's sale of its Ultimate Fighting Championship license to EA.

Gamasutra reported that Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter was informed of the reasons for sale by THQ management. It confirmed the latest title for the franchise UFC Undisputed 3, which had shipped 1.4 million copies by May 20 this year, did not break even.

It explains the sale of the license to EA, which has published its own MMA title in the past. In fact, in 2009 the publisher was engaged in a war of words with UFC president Dana White.

"EA Sports told us, 'You're not a real sport. We wouldn't touch this thing. We want nothing to do with this,'" said White in July 2009.

"We put our asses on the line, THQ and the UFC, to make a video game deal in the worst economy in the world," White added. "We go out there and do this thing, and it's successful, and now [expletive] EA Sports wants to do a video game. Really? That's not what you told us a year-and-a-half ago.

"You told us you'd never be in business with us. They wouldn't even take a meeting because mixed martial arts disgusted them. This wasn't a real sport. Boy, they got over that real quick, didn't they?"

Hideo Kojima repeatedly “forced back” to MGS because of “problems” (http://www.officialplaystationmagazine.co.uk/2012/06/08/hideo-kojima-repeatedly-forced-back-to-mgs-because-of-problems/)

Quote
In an interview at E3, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has admitted that MGS2 was meant to be his last game in the series, but problems with others portraying his ideas forced him back into the director’s chair.

Kojima said, “Metal Gear Solid 2 was meant to be my last Metal Gear before I handed it off to the team, and the team did actually start working on MGS3, but unfortunately there were problems and it didn’t go well, so I was forced to come back and work on it.”

He tried extra hard to make sure the same problem didn’t occur with the PS3 follow up. “When it came to MGS4, I said OK this time for sure I’m not getting involved so I really handed it off. Because I set two different directors working on it I was sure I wouldn’t have to get involved, but there was a difference in expectations of what I felt that Metal Gear should be.”

Kojima doesn’t seem to blame anyone, though. “It’s very hard to come up with the concept of a game and hand it off to other people, as of course they can’t see what’s in my head. They may not be able to understand the concept completely, or the messages that I want to convey and that’s where things went awry in the past as people couldn’t really understand what I wanted.” As a result, where his his ideas are involved, he’s going to stay in charge. “I decided at that point that if I was going to make a game based around these ideals that I would do it myself, which is why I keep getting involved.”

As well as Metal Gear Solid 5, he’s is currently working on new series which Kojima says is “something more on a human level“, the mysterious Project Ogre and the new Fox Engine. Regarding the last two he also had this to add, “One thing that I can say is that Project Ogre is evolving alongside the Fox Engine. The Fox Engine is at the point now where it is pretty much ready to start making a game, so rather than releasing a sample image of, say, our meeting room, what will be the next sample you see from Fox Engine will be something from Project Ogre.” Can’t wait.

Microsoft: ‘You Do Not Want’ an Xbox Smash Bros. Clone

Sony PlayStation will soon have a Smash Bros. clone, a game called PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale that lets its most famous characters beat each other up. Why? Because it was a great idea when Nintendo first let Mario, Link, Samus and the rest of its best heroes beat each other up.

Surely, Microsoft should join the fray and make their own?

No way, Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft Game Studios told me during an interview at E3.

But first, he played along and tried to brainstorm a roster with me.

"I'd go back to Voodoo Vince," he said. "Voodoo Vince was my favorite. We could have Joannna Dark fighting..."

"...Blinx The Time Sweeper? With the vacuum?" I suggested.

Spencer laughed.

"Crackdown guy?" I offered.

"You could pick some of the Tao Feng fighters and put them together?" (Or, as the website Digital Battle imagines—and as you can see atop this post—all of the fighters could be Halo's Master Chief.)

Was this a confirmation that it was in development? No. The opposite. "You do not want that game," Spencer said. "Have you played the [PlayStation] All-Stars?"

Yes, I said. Even though I was initially cynical about the game, I couldn't help but enjoy it when I recently started playing a pre-release version of it. Once you're having Kratos battling Fat Princess, you realize it's fun.

"I'm not going to take a shot at Sony first-party [game development]," Spencer said, "I think they do some great games. We're going to try to build games that actually create new opportunity on our platform. I don't really need to go and fill genres with the teams that we have. I don't compete with games that are already on my platform. Sure, all games on some level compete for a dollar bill, but for us it's really going to be to try to innovate. I haven't played the game, so I'm not saying it's not innovative, but..."

I finished his sentence. "We're not going to get an Xbox mascot fighter?"

"Sorry," he replied.

Shigeru Miyamoto talks bringing 'The Legend of Zelda' to the Wii U (http://popwatch.ew.com/2012/06/07/e3-nintendo-shigeru-miyamoto/)
Quote
Q: We know there’s a new Mario game coming for the Wii U, New Super Mario Bros. U. Last year when the Wii U was first introduced, a standalone Zelda battle scene was created to showcase the system’s high-definition graphics. What about the Wii U intrigues you for what you could do in a Zelda game?

Miyamoto: Obviously we stared that experiment last year and used that to sort of showcase some of the HD visuals. And obviously when you look at that, you do get a positive reaction to how simply having the HD visuals in a Zelda game can really make the game look wonderful and give it sort of a high-quality feel. But one thing that’s interesting is we’re seeing how the way that tastes are broadening in video games and you have some people who prefer more casual experiences, and you have some people who prefer sort of those more in-depth experiences. Obviously, as a company that’s been making games for a very long time, we tend to be more on the deeper, longer game side of things. But really what we continue to ask ourselves as we have over the years is, “What is the most important element of Zelda if we were to try to make a Zelda game that a lot of people can play?” So we have a number of different experiments going on, and [when] we decide that we’ve found the right one of those to really help bring Zelda to a very big audience, then we’ll be happy to announce it.


Q: So you’re sort of in the R&D stage?

Miyamoto: Yeah. With the last game, Skyward Sword, that was a game where you had motion control to use your weapons and a lot of different items, and I thought that was a lot of fun, but there were some people who weren’t able to do that or didn’t like it as much and stopped playing partway through it. So we’re in the phase where we’re looking back at what’s worked very well and what has been missing and how can we evolve it further.

I hope instead of just dropping Motion controls they just add a option that lets you turn them off and just use a regular controller or what not, even though i had trouble with it in SS(then again I'm only in the first dungeon still so i'm not use to them yet) i felt it was pretty unique and gave it more of your in control of the sword and it depends on you feel.

I don't think it'll go that far though with the Wii U pad having a screen i think it'd be interesting if they made the next game have some parts or dungeons that would switch it to a top down Zelda like ALTTP that you would play on the Wii U pad screen and have a map for the TV screen till you finish that dungeon or part.

And I hope they throw in MORE characters, lots more characters.

Never did pickup all the DLC, I mainly picked up the original costumes to characters I liked, especially Ken's whos new designed irked me.

Am i the only one who noticed that the Shine Maiden and Maid look like they magically grow boobs when they transform.

My hopes for this game coming out continue to demenish as Phantom Breaker itself continues to slip further into the year. Seriously, its been pushed back at least 3 times now.

the best part of Zelda, IMO was and always is exploration. There isn't enough of that anymore, atleast not on larger scale than we're accustomed. The Twilight Princess overworld never felt like it was much bigger than the original LoZ overworld back on NES. They should make a LoZ game that is much more open (Not in the form of a Great Sea or Great Sky or whatever.), than before, the motion controls were okay, because they made it so combat in boss battles isn't as simple as *use tool to exploit weak spot* -> *attack attack attack*.

The original Zelda's overworld isn't so big, it just gives the feeling of being big because:

1) You have to start from the very beginning each time you die outside of the temples.
2) You can't transport early in game.
3) The world looks mystical and mysterious because you rarely ever receive any sort of advice, and when you do it's pretty poorly worded and largely useless. Also there's too much hidden stuff you could only find by a lucky mistake or reading a guide.
4) The original Zelda wasn't so linear as the later games.

And most of those are actually bad things.

Quote
Nintendo started talking seriously about the Wii U at E3 this week, and shared a big list of all the games confirmed so far for the new consoles. It's looking pretty impressive, considering there's still no word on when exactly the Wii U will launch. Come on, have a butcher's.

Nintendo's being very vague about how long the "launch window" is, whether it's weeks or months--so it seems games slated for the "holiday" window may well be arriving before those in the "launch" one. You can rely on the holiday season, barring an unforseen Santa Claus catastrophe.

Holiday:

Assassin's Creed III and Batman: Arkham City Armored

    Aban Hawkins & the 1,000 Spikes

    Assassin's Creed III

    Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition

    Ben 10: Omniverse

Quote
"When I came to the doctor told me that my blood acidity level was on par with someone who had just finished running a marathon. He asked me: 'Ono-san, what on earth you been up to?'"
Quote
"I went home, made a demo tape of my guitar playing and sent it in. A few days later Capcom invited me to an interview for the job. On the evening following my interview, I had a call saying: 'You start next week'. These days there's a lot more process, but in 1993 it was that straightforward..."
Quote
"After I passed out, I was thinking in the hospital: there are so many people at Capcom that, over the years, have disappeared at one time or another. Suddenly, in that bed I understood what happened to them... The day after a game is finished and goes off to manufacture there are ten empty desks, their previous occupants never to be seen again."
Quote
"When Third Strike came out R&D didn't really consider sales back then. We weren't as marketing orientated as we are today. We just wanted to make the best game and wanted to please our most hardcore fans."
Quote
"Back in the arcade days you had a small neighbourhood town community playing Street Fighter together in the arcades. Then the next town had its own community. But they were isolated from one another... With Street Fighter 4 my aim was to bring these communities together with the online system. I succeeded and now I want to create the 'Order of the Street Fighter' an online community where people can meet to play fighting games."

It saddens me becuase it implies that the opossite is what's happening now, marketing departments are the ones who decide how to make games.

You’ll ‘Want To Protect’ The New, Less Curvy Lara Croft (http://kotaku.com/5917400/youll-want-to-protect-the-new-less-curvy-lara-croft)
Quote
"When people play Lara, they don't really project themselves into the character," Rosenberg told me at E3 last week when I asked if it was difficult to develop for a female protagonist.

"They're more like 'I want to protect her.' There's this sort of dynamic of 'I'm going to this adventure with her and trying to protect her.'" So is she still the hero? I asked Rosenberg if we should expect to look at Lara a little bit differently than we have in the past. "She's definitely the hero but— you're kind of like her helper," he said. "When you see her have to face these challenges, you start to root for her in a way that you might not root for a male character." The new Lara Croft isn't just less battle-hardened; she's less voluptuous. Gone are her ridiculous proportions and skimpy clothing. This Lara feels more human, more real. That's intentional, Rosenberg says. "The ability to see her as a human is even more enticing to me than the more sexualized version of yesteryear," he said. "She literally goes from zero to hero... we're sort of building her up and just when she gets confident, we break her down again."

In the new Tomb Raider, Lara Croft will suffer. Her best friend will be kidnapped. She'll get taken prisoner by island scavengers. And then, Rosenberg says, those scavengers will try to rape her.

"She is literally turned into a cornered animal," Rosenberg said. "It's a huge step in her evolution: she's forced to either fight back or die."

Tomb Raider: Other M
Calling it, she is going to be surrounded by male characters that the devs would much rather be making a game about.

At any rate, I can see where they're coming from by making vulnerability such a huge part of the game.  They're trying to make her into a more developed character in this reboot.  If you take a young, inexperienced student and throw her into the impossible situations of a typical Tomb Raider game, no ones going to buy that she'd immediately just fly in with blazing guns and death defying leaps.  I'm sure that the idea is to have her overcome all of the terrible situations and, by the end of the game, watch her become the badass Lara Croft people have come to expect.

Valve's bringing back the Potato Sack bundle for no apparent reason.

Quote
Remember the Potato Sack? Back in April 2011, Valve put 13 popular indie games into a sexy bundle o' fun, gave it a stupid name and used it to launch a Portal 2 ARG that made everybody mad. I never really understood the whole "potato" angle but there's something about it that Valve must like, because the Sack Is Back - and nobody knows why.

Here's what we do know. For $20, you get 1... 2... 3... KICK IT! (Drop That Beat Like an Ugly Baby), AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, AudioSurf, Bit.Trip Beat, Cogs, Defense Grid: The Awakening, Killing Floor, Rush, Super Meat Boy, The Ball, The Wonderful End of the World and Toki Tori, a package of games that would cost over $77 if purchased individually. It's a pretty sweet deal, and if you already own some of them (or even all of them, if you're feeling generous) you can gift them to your friends.

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/117888-Valve-Unleashes-the-Potato-Sack-Reunion

If you didn't get it last time, I'd highly recommend it.  The deal ends tomorrow at 6PM.

The leaked document is 56 pages and seems pretty well put together. If it's a hoax it's a very elaborate one. Not to mention MS' lawyers had it yanked for copyright infringement. Still, it's 2 years old and a lot of things can change in that time...

UDON announces Marvel vs. Capcom: Official Complete Works Artbook (http://www.udonentertainment.com/blog/udon/udon-proudly-presents-marvel-vs-capcom-official-complete-works/)
Quote
TORONTO, CANADA: An amazing collection nearly 20 years in the making, UDON Entertainment proudly announces the impending release of Marvel vs. Capcom: Official Complete Works! This is a brand-new art book collecting all of the official artwork, sketches, and bonus material from all of Marvel and Capcom’s video game collaborations—from 1993’s The Punisher arcade game right up to 2012’s smash-hit Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for the PLAYSTATION 3, PSP, and X-BOX 360 platforms!

Compiled by UDON with the help of Capcom and Marvel, this is the first time this material has ever been collected in one place — on either side of the Pacific! Weighing in at nearly 200 pages, Marvel vs. Capcom: Official Complete Works has been a labour of love for the UDON production team. Working closely with Capcom creative head Shoei Okano, UDON has dug deep through CAPCOM’s archives to find extremely rare high-resolution art and materials to put together for this project — no easy task considering no Marvel vs. Capcom art book was ever printed in Japan!

Includes stunning artworks by Akiman, Bengus, Shinkiro, Joe Madureira, Adi Granov, and more! Complementing the classic pieces are an all-new gallery of stunning Marvel vs. Capcom illustrations by comics superstars including Joe Ng, Long Vo, Chamba, Adam Warren, and Takeshi Miyazawa!

“This book means a lot to UDON,” says Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Erik Ko. “It was back 10 years ago that Joe Quesada at Marvel Comics gave UDON our first freelance job, and kick-started our creative services department. Then just a few years later, we became our own publisher, working closely with Capcom to publish original Street Fighter® comics! Being able to publish a book containing amazing work from both Marvel and Capcom is like a big ‘thank you’ from us to the folks who helped make us what we are today. Thank you Marvel, thank you Capcom!”

Marvel vs. Capcom: Official Complete Works will make its international debut at Comic-Con International: San Diego on Wednesday, July 11th, in an exclusive hardcover edition that will not be sold in stores. The hardcover will feature an exclusive wrap-around cover by UDON and Marvel vs. Capcom artist Alvin Lee and digitally painted by UDON`s Genzoman, and only 200 will be available over the course of the show. A standard-format soft cover release will follow in late November 2012, distributed by Diamond to comics and bookstores everywhere.

Key Features:
- This is an original art book compiled by UDON, with no Japanese counterpart!
- Includes all of the promotional artwork, a complete art archive of all Marvel vs. Capcom character drawings, and rare, never-before-seen artwork, sketches, and bonus material!
- Contains artwork from the Capcom games The Punisher, X-Men: Children of the Atom, Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men VS Street Fighter™, Marvel Super Heroes VS Street Fighter™, Marvel VS Capcom, Marvel VS Capcom 2, Marvel VS Capcom 3, and Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3!
- Includes 17 new illustrations exclusive to this book!

This is the book that fighting game fans have dreamed of, since The Punisher and Nick Fury first picked up their guns, since Captain America raised his shield against Ryu`s hadoken! No fan of Marvel Comics, no fan of Capcom’s universe, no fan of videogames will want to be without Marvel vs. Capcom: Official Complete Works!
Looks really stupid that Chris has his art instead of his model turned sideways or a sprite.

Rumor:Okami Remaster Possibly Coming to PlayStation 3 (http://andriasang.com/con1iu/okami_remaster_maybe/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter)
Quote
We're hearing some reports about a PlayStation 3 version of Capcom's PlayStation 2 classic Okami. Titled Okami Zekkie-ban (maybe... Okami Magnificent Version), the game appears to be an HD remaster.

We're not totally sure of the source on this one, but we'll hopefully have confirmation or debunkment in a bit!

Developed by the now defunct Clover Studio, Okami was released for the PlayStation 2 in 2006 and was acclaimed for its unique art style. A Wii remake followed in 2009, with a DS spinoff/sequel in 2010.

I'm posting today to say that Friday, June 22nd will be my last day at Capcom.

Writing this is incredibly difficult. In no uncertain terms, Capcom
has been a dream for me.

I have chosen a new path which will let me embrace a new dream, but to everyone that ever believed in this dream we shared together, let me say this final thanks. I will leave as I began--a Capcom fan for life, looking forward to all the great games still to come.

My brother Pete introduced me to Street Fighter II in 1991, and it was love at first sight. Even at the height of my early fan fever dreams, however, I could never have guessed that this game would take me around the world. From my first fumblings with the fireball, to battling for local arcade supremacy, and even on to competing in Japan, I still never let myself imagine I could someday meet, much less work alongside the people responsible for these games. To think back on the fact that it's been my real life for these years is hard for me to believe, even now.

Lured by news of a new project that would eventually become Street Fighter IV, I gave up a happy little life to join Capcom in 2006 with the naive hope of playing some part--any part--in waking up the world to remember something I have known in my blood since the SF2 era: fighting games are amazing. At the time I came on, fighters were few and far between, and Street Fighter had been asleep for a long time. Through the combination of some great games and an incredible community, I'm happy to think that we've hit that early target--fighting games are strong again--perhaps stronger than they've ever been before.

Based around the early success of SFIV, we were able to create a small model internally to show that the positive impact community can have on our games. From there, the insights and passion from fans across our franchises have made Capcom a far more open, engaged place than the company I knew growing up. Fan-facing events and conversations have become a top priority, and even our typically reserved producers have opened up to the joys and challenges of talking directly to their players. Even as you give us hell and ask us to do better, remember the progress we've made together and know that this company is full of great individuals who share your love for the games, and that they are always trying to chart the path to make games that are worthy of your dedication.

To everyone that's helped me along my path, I'm left only with words that seem hollow from overuse, but: Thank You.

Thank you to Ono-san, and to the now-passed Mark Beaumont, who trusted me with the game and believed in my passion from the very start.

To Niitsuma-san, who invited me on his journey to embrace the crazy heart beating inside the Versus series, and produced games that still thrill me even after thousands of hours.

To the many talented people throughout the fighting teams that gave me a lite
