To quote: With [Register or Login to view links] launching in the U.S. tomorrow, we've pulled together some (hopefully!) fascinating things you may not know about the game. First, though, you might want to see what Alien Breed: Impact looks like in action.

Alien Breed: Impact is a re-imagining of the classic Amiga games. The original Alien Breed is remembered as one of the foremost games released on the Amiga.

Launched in 1991 and developed and published by [Register or Login to view links], it proved to be a huge success, with the Special Edition version spending an incredible 33 unbroken weeks at the top of the UK sales charts.

"Heart of Darkness" helped inspire Alien Breed: Impact. The game's main influences are obviously...
 

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow for PS3: Getting to Know Gabriel

205w ago - Producer Dave Cox has made available some new details on getting to know Gabriel Belmont for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow on Sony's PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: When designing [Register or Login to view links], I often looked back at the [Register or Login to view links] for inspiration.

I would remember the feelings I had as I traversed the dark, gloomy landscape and recall the wonderful music that would create an atmosphere quite unlike any other game of the time.

For me, Castlevania was always about lone warrior battling supernatural creatures with a whip. This was the core idea that when you strip away all the layers, is what remains true for the series even now. Of course, back then, games were far simpler and story lines, characters, and the rest were often secondary to the all-important gameplay.

Over the years, games have become more sophisticated and players have wanted deeper experiences and more far-reaching gameplay mechanics. Expectations for memorable characters and realistic environments often mean it's much more difficult to find the core of a game and truly understand where something is coming from.

We decided early on...

Sony Acknowledges Fat Princess Online Issues, Working on Fix

300°
265w ago - Sony acknowledged that Fat Princess has been having somewhat of a rocky start, complete with lag and random connection issues.

The problem isn't effecting all users, though its been widespread enough to warrant a response from Sony.

To quote: "We are aware that some customers are experiencing connection issues and are working to address this [as soon as possible]," a Sony representative told G4. "If there are lag issues during a game, there will be a snail image in the lower left corner. It is advised that if this snail appears for more than 30 seconds, the player should try another game."

I've personally put a good number of hours into Fat Princess and have had zero issues with the game – which is actually a change from most PlayStation 3 games. I usually have trouble connecting to any matches on the PlayStation 3, period (used to be NAT 3, changed that, but problem has still persisted).

To quote: [Register or Login to view links] is the world's largest and longest-running fighting game tournament, and this year it was bigger than ever.

Largely thanks to the incredible success of Street Fighter IV, EVO's overall attendance positively exploded compared to recent years, with over 1,000 die-hard players entering for it alone.

With thousands in attendance, six games are simply not enough and as the fighting-game mecca of the world, there is a ton to experience every year.





Capcom set up shop and showed off the latest builds of Marvel vs Capcom 2 for PlayStation Network, as well as Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Codes for the PSP. Likewise, Namco was on-hand running a side-tournament for the extremely impressive looking Tekken 6 for PLAYSTATION 3, which has to be seen to be believed (seriously, screenshots do not do this baby justice).

Not to be outdone was Aksys who brought their increasingly popular 2D fighter BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, which found its way onto the main stage as well. These titles...
