Steambot Chronicles Battle Tournament Hits PSP on June 30 '09

50°
288w ago - Lead Editor Mike Meeker has announced that Steambot Chronicles Battle Tournament will be hitting Sony's PSP on June 30 2009, along with the following details:

Take a trip back in time, to a simpler era where people lived in friendly communities, the Industrial Revolution was in full bloom, and people rode about town in those new-fangled two-legged Trotmobiles.

That's right. The automobile is still around, but the walking Trotmobile is much more popular, especially in Orion City, where the game takes place. Incidentally, that's also where the nation's largest Trot company is headquartered, and the Orion City Trotmobile Battle Tournament decides who's the best Trot driver in the land.

At the start of the game, you're out to make a name for yourself as an up-and-coming Trotmobile driver, with an antiquated machine and no respect. Luckily, you'll earn the friendship of a mechanic named Venus, and the two of you will take on all comers in your quest for championship.

Of course, if the game was all about gladiatorial combat, it would get a little dull. You'll get a lot of say in how your character acts, and your responses might have an impact on what happens later... But I recommend going with your gut, because I and fellow editor Clayton Chan had a lot of...
 

Computer Games of the Future to Simulate Real Smell of Battle

50°
292w ago - It is one of the most memorable lines in movie history. As the air around him is rent by explosions and the whiz of bullets, Colonel Kilgore stands nonchalantly with hands on hips, sniffs the acrid breeze and declares: 'I love the smell of napalm in the morning.'

Now actor Robert Duvall's famous scene from the Vietnam epic Apocalypse Now could be re-enacted in millions of teenagers' bedrooms - thanks to technology that will allow computer games consoles to release the stench of war.

The Ministry of Defence is part-funding a project in which foul smells are released into the air during training videos so that recruits literally learn to sniff out trouble.

If the technology proves a success, it is expected to be taken up by manufacturers of top-selling consoles - such as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The team of psychologists and computer engineers developing the technology, on behalf of the British Army, plan to bombard troops with odours ranging from body sweat to diesel exhaust.

The aim is to teach recruits that the presence of some smells and absence of others could indicate danger.

At the moment, the technology is still in its infancy. But the scientists say it will soon be possible to design games in which the screech of tyres...

God Of War Cloned by EA, Dante's Inferno is Ready for Battle

50°
297w ago - Imagine going to hell and you find yourself in an area where those who were gluttons in life are punished. Their torment is to lie entangled under a continual and heavy storm of hail, black snow and discolored water.

As you see the horror all around you, you noticed Cerberus the ferocious three-headed beast that guards the gluttons and feeds on them like scattered meat.

At that moment, you realized your only choice is to ready your weapon and kick some demon ass! Well ladies and gentleman EA is going to let gamers experience being demon slayer when Dante's Inferno hits the PS3 and Xbox 360 next year.

What is Dante's Inferno about?

Dante's Inferno a.k.a. the Divine Comedy was written by Dante Alighieri, between 1308 and 1321. The author took readers for one hell of ride with this epic masterpiece. The book introduces Dante, who happens to be the writer, narrator, main protagonist and traveler in the Inferno.

The story begins on the night before Good Friday, in the year 1300. Dante is wandering in a dark and gloomy forest, unable to find a pathway out. While trying to find his way he's approached by three beasts that are blocking his path.

On the verge of giving up hope, Dante is saved by the Roman Vergil who guides him through the nine...
 

Video: God of War III Dev Interview #5 - The Battle Director

50°
299w ago - Today Sony Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein concluded the 5-part video series of God of War III PS3 developer interviews.

To quote: Here it is, our 5th and final God of War III developer interview of the week, and my personal favorite.

The man with the coolest title in gaming, "Battle Director" Adam Poole talks damage dealing, weapons, and the influence of fighting games on the world of God of War.

His descriptions of combos and, well, violence are vivid and fun; so this video is a little longer than the other ones. I don't think you'll mind.





If Adam's descriptions don't get you salivating for the game, maybe you need to watch the trailer again!

Thanks so much for taking time to watch the videos and meet God of War III's developers. We'll have a lot more for you on this game closer to [Register or Login to view links].
