120w ago - SCEE's James Gallagher has shared a video and Q&A on Colonial Marines for the PS3 today, as follows:
I checked out Aliens: Colonial Marines when I popped over to the SEGA gamescom booth to say hi to a friend and, within minutes, it became one my highlights of the show.
I'm not as familiar with the Aliens films as many - I remember seeing one of them on TV as a child and not sleeping well for a few days - but judging it purely as a shooter, it is looking very impressive.
The level shown was a beautifully lit labyrinth of corridors on-board a craft sent to investigate LV-426, 11 months after Ripley escaped in Aliens.
The most memorable aspect for me was the animation of the Xenomorphs and my skin is crawling as I type just thinking about them. This added to the level design, which always leaves you feeling exposed as creatures pour from every angle and air vent, produces an unnerving shooter that piles on the tension.
After the demo, I spoke with Gearbox Chief Creative Officer Brian Martel about working with such an iconic IP and why his team is best suited to bringing the essence of the Aliens films to the interactive space.
130w ago - Eidos Montreal Community Manager Kyle Stallock has posted up some new video footage of Deus Ex: Human Revolution for PS3 today from this year's E3 convention.
To quote: Demoing a game like Deus Ex: HR isn't easy, but it also isn't boring. As you can see in the video, sometimes our strategies don't go as planned, so we must improvise and adapt.
Adam, the man behind the controller (who coincidentally shares a first name with the game's protagonist Adam Jensen), does just that by showing viewers multiple solutions to potential problems. Would you have played differently than Adam? Let us know below.
If you enjoyed hearing someone from Eidos-Montreal answer user-submitted questions, I recommend heading over to our tumblr page.
There, members of the dev team, including myself, game director Jean-Francois Dugas, and more, read and respond to users. No question is too crazy, or too boring, so flood our inbox!
As always, thank you for your continued support. We all appreciate the comments, criticisms, and general interest, whether it's positive OR negative, we've received. And I'd like to personally say it's truly a pleasure to be the community manager for such...
142w ago - Eidos Montreal Community Manager Kyle Stallock has posted up some videos today of a new Deus Ex: Human Revolution PS3 trailer and walkthrough.
To quote: Multi-path, multi-solution; chances are if you've read, heard, or watched an interview with a member of the dev team these words appeared.
This isn't marketing speak, nor are we incessantly reciting this "password" to try and unlock some deep-seated mental programming placed by the illuminati (or are we?).
This type of play is as integral to the Deus Ex experience as conspiracies or transhumanism, or even wearing sunglasses at night (kidding about that last one, kind of...).
In the spirit of this foundational element we've released a new gameplay trailer highlighting three different ways to tackle one scenario: aggressive, stealth, and adaptive.
When you can finally play on August 26th, what will you choose?
If you enjoy seeing this style of video, please check out a similar one we recently released where narrative designer Mary DeMarle takes viewers through a portion of the game, highlighting the multi-path, multi-solution gameplay that is so important to the series.
144w ago - Eidos Montreal Community Manager Kyle Stallock has announced that Deus Ex: Human Revolution hits PS3 this August alongside details on their PAX plans.
