Dead Space Producer Glen Schofield wants to Scare You

50°
343w ago - EA's Executive Producer Glen Schofield on Dead Space admits to getting a thrill out of putting the fear into gamers.

In this interview he talks about the challenges of pacing 16 hours of game play with enough scary moments and staking claim to the sci-fi horror-survival genre.

Das Gamer: As the creator of a horror game, what actually scares you?

Glen Schofield: Spiders. I hate them. Not sure its fear, probably more hate, but I don't like them.

What scares you when it comes to games?

Glen Schofield: The atmosphere, the unknowing. What's around the next corner, the adjacent room, that closet? With games I know it can come at you from any angle. In movies it's going to be where the camera is pointed.

What do you think the difference is in creating something that scares a gaming audience versus an audience going to see the next edition of Saw?

Glen Schofield: With a movie the director can frame the scene, point the camera and set everything up just perfectly for the scare. In games you have to be prepared for the player to miss moments, to come into them differently than you planned or just see a glimpse of it. We have to think out every scare moment from a hundred different perspectives and scenarios.

Carmen Electra Wii Pole Dancing Game

50°
347w ago - Peekaboo poledancing are proud to announce their latest toy- Pole dancing for the Wii! In a press release on the moocow store they said:

"In response to recent speculation, we are pleased to confirm that Peekaboo is in talks to develop a game for the Nintendo Wii that meets mainstream demand for the fun and fitness benefits of pole dancing.

With pole dancing classes springing up in gyms and health clubs across Europe and the USA, the number of women seeking the body-sculpting and fat-burning effects of this aerobic form of exercise has never been greater.

While the Peekaboo Wii game is still in the developmental stage, it can be confirmed that it will not involve Carmen Electra, the inspiration behind our recent Electra Pole Professional Pole Kit.

Peekaboo and its partners are focussed on using Wii friendly hardware to make aerobic pole dancing instantly accessible just as Guitar Hero did for rock'n'roll.

Men and women of all shapes and sizes will be encouraged to work on improving their skills, with the firm focus on fun and fitness as per the core brand values of Nintendo Wii.

GTA IV floating cars drives opinions up in the air

50°
348w ago - Unless you are living under a rock or in denial, you can't really avoid the videos or at least comments from gamers about the GTA IV videos on message boards across the net.

Well it seems a number of gamers aren't overly happy with a number of things in GTA IV. Whilst it is easy to complain about the game prior to playing it (which is a tad unfair) things like floating cars are there for all to see.

Sandbox games of this nature are known to have glitches and bugs due to their sheer size and complexity, and it appears that GTA IV is no exception. Sadly the QA team let floating cars pass, to the annoyance of a number of gamers who were expecting a more polished game.

We feel that if things like this are going to affect your enjoyment of the game, then perhaps you should find another hobby. There are many great games that have glitches, but still are enjoyable and... great!
 

Sony Senior Vice President talks PSN; Network Cards shipping!

50°
349w ago - Sony Senior Vice President Peter Dille has been talking about their plans for the Playstation Network this year on the US PlayStation Blog.

Information revealed included that: we can expect fewer arcade remakes and more original content on the PSN, they're committed to brining in-game access to XMB features, PlayStation Cards are currently shipping to retailers nationwide and will be available in denominations of $20 and $50 starting this spring.

To quote: It has been a while since I last wrote on the blog. I've been looking to take the opportunity to talk about PLAYSTATION Network and thought today's availability of the redesigned PLAYSTATION Store would be the perfect entry point to outline what we have planned for the broader PLAYSTATION Network this year.

First off, we're excited about the new look and feel of the PLAYSTATION Store. Personally, I've been looking forward to this update for a long time as, in my view, the previous PLAYSTATION Store experience wasn't one that lived up to our brand. But this new UI is much more dynamic and allows us to elegantly display and merchandise a lot more content, which is very important today, but will be critical going forward with so much great new content coming onto the Store. We look forward to hearing your input and reaction...
