290w ago - Are you afraid of the dark? Do you run from things that are creepy - or go looking for them with a magnifying glass?
Survival/horror, the genre that turned teens and adults into terrified gamers that were too scared to put down the controller (or in some cases, too frightened to hold onto it), has been a great source of pleasure for those seeking thrills and chills.
If you're in that group, you won't have to search much longer: Alone in the Dark returns this summer.
To quote: You can even pierce the gas tank, start driving, leaving a trail of fuel, bail out, set fire to the trail, and you have a powerful rolling bomb.
Our objective was to make a game that's more modern in terms of content, more adapted to the tastes of today's gamers, and in particular that breaks the clichés of what you know about video games, said Nour Polloni, Producer at Eden Games.
For us it's not a survival/horror game, but a new perspective on what the survival experience is. We've done this through innovation in the spirit of the first Alone in the Dark, a broad mix of gameplay and a new way to tell the story.
In the 90s, survival/horror games were slow and creepy. Now they're taking on a more action-oriented approach. Is this good or bad, and which path was taken...
291w ago - On completion of the Haze demo gamers have been greeted with the following message:
"Exclusive on the PlayStation 3 system: 4-Player CO-OP campaign."
This seems to confirm the belief that it is just a timed exclusive, and that the 4-Player CO-OP campaign is something that will be exclusive to the PS3.
Does this confirm the rumors that the PC and Xbox 360 versions are still coming? Maybe Ubisoft has let the cat out of the bag and the cancelled versions for the PC and Xbox 360 were just postponed so the PS3 could see some love from Ubisoft?
Time will tell, but it is strange wording to say the least.
294w ago - According to the developers over at Digi-Guys, the Wardevil: Unleash the Beast Within posters will start to develop some of the style and mood that'll be a part of the game.
For those of you who don't know already, Wardevil is a PS3 exclusive and is set to hit sometime near the end of 2008 or possibly early 2009.
The game will feature an all new game engine called, RTE1080, which allows for 60fps animations and 1080p resolutions. As you may have seen in our last screenshot update, the game also features high resolution textures.
Some details the developers have told PSU:
- They are not finished with the game yet, still adding improvements both gameplay wise and graphically.
- They are making good use of the SPU's and streaming off of the Blu-ray disc
- Their goal is to get the Blu-ray film & game to look as identical as possible...so there is no transition between game/cinematic
294w ago - Ubisoft today announced the imminent release of a fully playable demo for Haze, the new first-person shooter set in a harsh future where war is never quite what it seems.
Coming exclusively to the PLAYSTATION Network in early May, this playable demo will give gamers a taste of not only the single-player campaign in Haze, but will also allow up to four-player, drop-in drop-out co-op play online.
Developed by shooter experts Free Radical, creators of the critically acclaimed TimeSplitters series, Haze is scheduled for release exclusively on the PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system on May 20th 2008.
