E for All: Metal Gear Solid 4 stuns on the PS3

50°
360w ago - Konami Corp. last week debuted the English build of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots for Sony Corp.'s Playstation 3 at the E for All Expo in Los Angeles. The latest sequel in the premier franchise stuns players in the most lifelike espionage tactical gameplay in the series to date.

In the E for All demo, Snake, referred to as Old Snake in the game, is briefed by Otacon to reach a rendezvous point. The level takes place in the Middle East, similar to the setting previewed in early trailers.

Old Snake yields a new range of combat action, including a dynamic auto camouflage that will allow him to blend in to an environmental texture. Either flat on the ground or against a wall, the advanced suit will blend and increase a camouflage percentage in the right corner of the screen.

In one sequence, Snake can choose to camouflage as a statue. When perched on the statue, the context button automatically grabs the crotch of the side statue to complete the illusion.

Instead of a radar, MGS4 introduces the threat ring, a semi-transparent ring that will appear in crouch or flat mode. The ring will resonate in high waves in a direction with enemy activity. The new system adds more uncertainty to the environment and a definite increased difficulty for fans.

Grand Theft Auto should have been out today.. It isn't.

50°
361w ago - Today should have been another landmark world-changing day for Rockstar. If everything had gone according to plan, we'd have been on extended hiatus while Grand Theft Auto IV's incredibly detailed world sucked us in like a vacuum. But it wasn't to be.
In case you didn't know (where have you been?!) Grand Theft Auto IV was originally due to launch today, 19 October 2007. Rockstar are traditionally spot on with release dates, even those issued 12 months in advance. Not this time, though. GTA IV suffered an unexplained delay, pushing it into next year - and the reasons still aren't clear even now...

So to stave off the looming sense of disappointment over what could have been, we're going to take a trawl through all the crucial twists and turns of Rockstar's next big thing. Sure, it can't satisfy our need for GTAIV entirely, but it'll make things a bit easier. For a while...

March 29, 2007 - Things Will Be Different
We'd waited and waited, but finally Rockstar was ready to reveal Grand Theft Auto's next-gen incarnation with a teasing, evocative and speculation-feeding trailer titled "Things Will Be Different". It was immediately clear that Rockstar wasn't mincing its words.

Rockstar invite the world's press to see the future of GTA in action, and...
 

Commando 3 for PSN/XBLA

50°
361w ago - Snuck in around the edges of Capcom's fancy Gamers Day in London this week was news of Commando 3 for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.

Developed by Backbone Emeryville, it's due to cost 800 Microsoft points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.30) on XBLA and USD 9.99 on PSN when it pitches up this winter.

According to Capcom's press bumf, Commando 3 is indeed a follow-up to the '80s shoot-'em-up originals, and allows up to three players to partake in a bit of blasting.

You'll get to take on the varied roles of the game's diverse playable characters - Animal, a former marine, Smoke, a female covert-op, and Boomer, an explosive-loving grump - and deploy power-ups like "deadly M-Crash superbombs", with controllable co-op vehicles to master and an adjustable difficulty level in case you're pants.

Naturally we're also told to expect online leaderboards, so everyone can measure just how pants you in fact are, or just how much Kristan is holding you back.
 

Quartermann: God of War 3, Gears of War 2 in 2008

50°
361w ago - Oh, and Skies of Arcadia fans might want to pay attention.

Another month, another batch of rumors from EGM's Quatermann. You know, even though Sony hasn't announced God of War 3, it's coming. In fact, it was already sort of announced. Anyway, the folks at SCEA Santa Monica are already hard at work at preparing Kratos' debut on PlayStation 3, which should arrive during the next holiday season, joined by a little something called Gears of War 2, as well. Oooh.

Epic Games and Microsoft haven't confirmed Gears of War 2 either, but the game's stellar sales (not to mention the cliffhanger ending) is confirmation enough.
 

Coming Soon Exclusively to the PS3 - Rat Race

50°
361w ago - Hey people! My name is Greg Easley and I'm one of the founders of Super-Ego Games, a development studio with a different take on making games. We're finally announcing our new title and labor of love, Rat Race. You'll read more about this in the game press soon, but I wanted to tell you about it here first.

Rat Race is a PS3-exclusive comedy/adventure game - yeah, another one of those! - that will be available as individual episodes on PSN beginning this winter. Rat Race has been written and voiced by some really funny people with credits on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, My Name Is Earl, Saturday Night Live, South Park, Flight of the Conchords, Sex and the City, Ugly Betty, Comedy Central, and so on. Our team includes some of the best stand-up comics in New York City, where half of our studio is based (the other half is in San Francisco).

Rat Race is set in an office - an extremely dysfunctional one. The company is called BiggCo, and the people who work there make the Enron guys look like Nobel Prize laureates. Your job is simply to make it through the day as bombs go off all around you. As the clock ticks toward quitting time, you'll encounter a rogues gallery including: Joy Chung, an impossible, and impossibly hot, PR exec; Chip Bratsby III, a pompous jerk whose career focus is getting...
