6w ago - Codemasters Ben Walke shared details today on taking the race online with GRID 2's multiplayer.
To quote: We've talked previously about World Series Racing and the single player experience of GRID 2 - now it's time to talk multiplayer.
Multiplayer in GRID 2 is big. Bigger than anything we've done before. More depth, more choice, more progression... but before we get to the BIG details, we'll just chuck in a little reminder that you can play in two-player split-screen across our game modes. It's old school, and we love it.
GRID 2 utilizes a multiplayer system that is completely separate to the single player portion of the game. We want to bring the best of online gaming to the racing genre and a dedicated, distinct game is the only way we could achieve what we wanted.
As you progress you'll be able to earn XP and cash, which will allow you to purchase cars and upgrades, and you'll constantly have new challenges and rivals.
You'll also be able to showcase your individuality by customising and modifying your cars. With over six billion possible combinations to choose from, you'll certainly stand out on the grid.
The Clean vs. The Dirty
Naturally these two types of racers don't get on very well, it's the Cats vs. Dogs of the racing...
6w ago - Ubisoft Production Manager Philippe Fournier revealed today that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon explodes onto PSN this April 30, 2013 alongside a new video trailer below.
To quote: Hey guys I'm Philippe Fournier, production manager on the upcoming cyber-shooter Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.
It is 2007 - the future. Step into the shoes of Rex Power Colt, a cyber-commando sent to a remote island to stop Colonel Ike Sloan from taking over the world with his rogue cyborg army.
For Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, we wanted to go back to the late 80s and early 90s - what we like to call "the VHS era" - when video games were still new, and over-the-top action movies were at their pinnacle.
Most of the team grew up during those years, so it was a ton of fun to relive this carefree episode of our lives, where we could watch cartoons like MASK or GI Joe with Uncle Dan on Saturday morning.
During the conception phase, our days consisted of watching VHS tapes of action movies sitting in front of an old CRT screen. Our office space looked like a kid's room in the early 90s, with He-Man figurines on our desks and Terminator posters on every wall. We probably had the best Halloween day ever, with people dressed...
