242w ago - Today Keita Takahashi of Namco Bandai Games shared both a Noby Noby Boy PS3 multiplayer update and video, to quote:
I'd like to share a little bit more about Multiplayer. In Single player, the game allows BOY to eat another BOY as well as people and animals, etc. In Multiplayer though, eating everything has some funny consequences. For example, if the head of a 1P BOY eats the rear of a 2P BOY, the two players end up with a combined BOY.
Head: Player 1
Rear: Player 2
This could be very confusing because one BOY is controlled by two players. Moreover, the fact that the game is compatible for up to four players could bring even more chaotic situations. Doesn't that sound fun?
We are almost there. Please be a little more patient.
But now that GDC is over, I'd like to thank everyone who came to see my panel. I was so relieved to see all of you because I had been so anxious thinking no one would want to hear my stories about the game. As I said in the last post, I didn't have the time to put together what I'd say just as I was leaving Japan.
Why do I need to know and prepare notes beforehand? Well, because I can't speak English. In order to deliver my...
246w ago - Today Keita Takahashi of Namco Bandai Games shared what he plans to discuss at GDC 2009 along with a Noby Noby Boy Multiplayer PS3 teaser video.
To quote: Just wanted to let you know I'm going to talk a lot about Noby Noby Boy during my panel at GDC. I'd like to proclaim with confidence that I'll be there on the 26th. Please come and enjoy my stories about the game!
However, since I have been busy working on the update, I haven't had the chance to think about what to say. What a dilemma! I'll be putting my thoughts together during my flight to San Francisco. So, please excuse me for the blog being so short. But for now, please enjoy this teaser video of the multiplayer mode.
256w ago - We have read many ideas for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, some about the weapons and others about the game type's in multiplayer. One of the best ideas we would like to see is a hostage online game.
You could save your hostages from the other team before they get killed or something along those lines. Maybe even have the hostages have the option to try and escape from their captors.
Another great idea in COD 6: is to have the lobby for the Sony PS3 and Xbox 360 updated, especially on the PS3. When you go to find match it would be good to have it setup like this:
Find Match - Countries - Core/Hardcore - Game Modes
Playlists for different countries or regions should be added because people would rather be playing against people from their own country and have a good connection, other than being thrown into a random match with people from another country and have a bad connection.
Would you like a hostage game type in multiplayer and a choice of countries when finding a match? Comment below!
291w ago - When a new issue of EGM drops, most of the time we tend to scroll right to the rumors and look for the newest bit of gossip. This issue in particular has some very interesting tid-bits.
First, EGM is reporting what we've been speculating for a very long time now: Bioshock is heading to the PlayStation 3 in September, and will come complete with all of the game's downloadable content, as well as improved visuals. This is a topic we've been talking about since before the game launched on the Xbox 360 last year.
We've long believed the game to exist somewhere within Irational Games (now 2K Austin), seeing as how development of Bioshock began for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, as indicated by an early press release for the game. Now we have to wait and hope that EGM, or their sources are right about this.
Another notable rumor is that the Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 bundle is going to be extremely limited, so if you don't secure yourself a pre-order sometime soon, you may very well be out of luck. So if you've yet to grab yourself a PlayStation 3, why not pre-order the year's best damn bundle before they're all gone?
And please don't pre-order these with the intention of re-selling them on eBay or something, if the bundles end up becoming a rarity and being worth something, it won't...
