208w ago - Today Fatshark Executive Producer Martin Wahlund has unveiled that Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West is coming to Sony's PSN this week, as follows:

My name is Martin Wahlund and I'm the Executive Producer at Fatshark, an independent development studio based is Stockholm, Sweden.

I am going to tell you a bit about Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West; a fast paced and team based multiplayer shooter releasing this Thursday on PSN.

The game features 6 multiplayer maps, 5 multiplayer game modes, 4 Professions and a single player practice mode.





So what does Lead and Gold play like?

Many comparisons have been made (by people watching previews) to Team Fortress 2 which is understandable due to the similarity in genre. Although we do love TF2, we are very confident that the gameplay and feel of LnG has an identity all of its own.

The matches are 5v5 affairs and game mechanics, game modes and maps have all been designed with one common goal: Teamplay. Let me give you some examples:

Player characters have aura buffs, we call them synergies, that strengthens your gangmates if they stay in your vicinity. This...

209w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has revealed the first MLB 10 The Show predictions this week, which begin with the AL West, as seen in the video below.

To quote: This week begins our divisional prediction series utilizing MLB 10 The Show to simulate the 2010 season. First up is the American League West... with the Angels, Rangers, Mariners, and A's all vying for the top spot, the race for the AL West crown seems to be wide open.

Ichiro has Seattle ready to claim their first division title since 2001 and if Griffey can bring back some magic from his past Mariner days, they just might have a shot.

The Rangers are coming off their first winning season since 2004 and now adding Vlad Guerrero to an already stacked lineup (2nd most HRs in MLB in '09), they will be a tough hurdle to overcome. Then there's...
 

Why Frank West Can't Take Pictures in Dead Rising for Wii

50°
273w ago - The premise of Dead Rising is that Frank West, a photojournalist, heads into a zombie-infested hellhole to take pictures of the goings-on inside. Zombie battling does ensue, but also zombie photography.

For some reason, this major plot element was revealed to be cut from the Wii version of Dead Rising earlier this week. Why cut something that's... you know, what the game is basically about?

Capcom's Minoru Nakai, director and producer of Dead Rising: Chop Til You Drop, finally got the chance to give fans an answer in the latest episode of Capcom's official podcast, Top Secret. Here's what he had to say.

This is a very different game, gameplay-wise than the 360 version of Dead Rising. Another reason is the fact that the camera is quite different. In this version, the camera is very similar to what the players are used to in Resident Evil 4 - an over-the-shoulder camera that stays fairly tight behind Frank... [Photographing zombies] doesn't work so well with the tighter camera we have in Dead Rising Wii.

So basically: no photography for you, because the real point of this game is to see if we can squeeze another hit out of the RE4 Wii engine.

Random Rant Episode 3: Kanye West and MTV.

So, maybe a week or two ago the MTV VMAs were on. Now, Kanye released a statement about how he felt betrayed by MTV etc. Whatever. He was going on about how he didn't win an award and stuff like that.

Really? He feels betrayed? By who? MTV. Now, last time I checked, MTV has no real MUSIC on the show. MTV is plagued by fricking reality TV shows. Seriously, I thought the M in MTV meant MUSIC. I guess not.
