Sony's Afrika Still Alive, Enlists Composer

50°
345w ago - We haven't heard much of anything from Sony about their mysterious Afrika game since March. Is it a Pokemon Snap-style photography simulator? Is there actually an adventure game buried in there? Or is it simply Sony's response to the growing popularity of "non-games" in Japan? We, uh, don't really know, but have come across proof the game's definitely still in development; it now has a composer.

By way of the Professional Musicians' Local 47 union newsletter, 1UP can confirm that Wataru Hokoyama -- a Los Angeles-based composer who doesn't appear to have worked in the videogames space before -- has recently hired a 104-piece orchestra to start laying down the symphonies to accompany Afrika, whatever it ends up being.

Sure, that doesn't tell us anything more about the game, but it's somethin'.
 

GoW Chains of Olympus (Combo Fiesta)

345w ago - Before we get you too excited, we should remind you that GoW Chains of Olympus isn't hitting the PSP until March. With that said, enjoy checking out all these sweet Kratos combos.

While the game looks well-executed on the PSP, my GoW enthusiasm has wained. I actually never finished the sequel, even though I really dug some of the newer elements like the hammer. Maybe the PS3 version's glamorous sheen will reinvigorate my interest in the franchise. Maybe I'm just parting ways with my obsession with the button mashing adventure genre. Am I alone on this one?

Rainbow Six Vegas 2 trailer is here to disappoint

50°
345w ago - I enjoyed Rainbow Six Vegas, so I was excited when the sequel was announced. Vegas is just such a bright and vibrant backdrop for a shooter, and the tactical gameplay fit great with the city.

Now, thanks to the Spike Video Game Awards, there's a trailer for Rainbow Six Vegas 2 (embedded below).




Unfortunately, it doesn't show a whole lot that actually pertains to the game it is supposed to be showing. It starts out with live-action, talking about what Vegas is, and there's some scantily clad women thrown in to keep your attention while you wait for something interesting to happen.

Sure, there's nothing wrong with throwing some boobs in game trailers (I actually recommend it), but all the live-action stuff isn't necessary and I was hoping for more game footage.

Finally at the end they show more than just actors and close up shots of cards and chips, but it is brief and really doesn't show much. The far too cliche announcer doesn't help, and it comes off more like a cheesy Hollywood movie preview. It wasn't too bad, but I was hoping for much more and it doesn't really help hype the game up. Hopefully they release another trailer soon, but with lots of gameplay and action instead of what this trailer had....

50°
345w ago - Nearly a month ago CJPC posted a Warhawk: Take Two PS3 Dev article.. since then a lot has happened, but due to finals and the holidays most of the resident Devs are too busy to update the news with their progress.

Recently ggparallel has shared the following for those interested- to quote:

Warhawk, is a game for PS3 GAMEOS. The retail version on Blue-ray allows you to send pkg via fake Web server via patches.

Howto under MAC OS:

Create a script that binds the various IPs of Sony Web server for example in MACOSX:

warhawk-start-interface.sh
#!/bin/bash
# where en0 is the interface you make the Web server listen
int="en0"
echo echo starting en0 aliases for PS3 networks
echo echo adding Warhawk http server port 80
/sbin/ifconfig $int inet 87.248.216.24 netmask 255.255.255.255
alias /sbin/ifconfig $int inet 87.248.217.171 netmask 255.255.255.255 alias

warhawk-stop-interface.sh
#!/bin/bash
# where en0 is the interface you make the Web server listen
int="en0"
echo echo removing en0 aliases for PS3 networks
echo echo removing Warhawk http server port 80
/sbin/ifconfig...
