First Look at 2 Days 2 Vegas!

50°
362w ago - Looking for something that might provide a more emotional and story driven experience than Grand Theft Auto? Perhaps a game that makes you feel like the choices you make effect the outcome of the storyline? Then 2 Days 2 Vegas should be at the top spot on your list.

If you are looking for a general synopsis on the game then check out our preview here. However for further details we contacted the developers at Steel Monkey, and got an inside scoop on what gamers can expect from the title now and when it releases later this year.

First off, let us just get this out of the way. 2 Days 2 Vegas will appear on the PC and Xbox 360 this Christmas, and then be followed by the PlayStation 3 release soon after in 2009. The reason for moving the PS3 development back is simple.

"Resources," said Tim Dvoskin, managing director at SteelMonkey. "We are too small to tackle everything at once."

However our thoughts are perhaps with more time, the developers will use the PS3 to their advantage, utilizing the Blu-ray format to include more content in the game. It seemed to us that when we spoke with Edwin Loo, the games producer, at GDC 2007, Steel Monkey was excited about the extra storage Blu-ray provided and that they would actually use it.

Now let's talk about the new screenshots....

Rumor: Microsoft Dropping 360 Premium To $299 For GTAIV Launch?!?

50°
362w ago - You know, sometimes you get stuff in your tip jar and it's just too far fetched. However, I can't ignore the possibility of this rumor being true. So for now I'll stick it under the rumors column and you can take whatever you want from it.

Basically, some unnamed person has tipped that Microsoft will be dropping the price of the Premium 360 another $49 on the same day that GTAIV gets released. This would be a smart move for Microsoft as we know millions upon millions of people love the GTA series. Now if you are still a PS2 or Xbox owner sitting on the fence waiting for this game to be released, then it would be a good time to invest in a next gen system.

It's interesting and I'm going to dig deep and find out if the rumor is true. Keep your pants in a bunch and don't lose any sleep.
 

Romero lashes out at Gamecock's Wilson

50°
362w ago - Doom designer and id Software co-founder John Romero has used his blog to lash out at Mike Wilson, CEO of Gamecock.

Romero accuses Wilson of taking the credit for the work of developers on his Gamecock roster, labelling the publisher's marketing and events such as EIEIO as "jackass stunts".

"Once again, just like with Godgames, Wilson is taking all the credit away from the indie devs and pasting his asinine logo everywhere," said Romero in a recent blog post.

"People are now starting to get a clue about how Mr. Wilson operates. Hey everyone, he hasn't changed in over 10 years - these are the kinds of jackass stunts he pulled at Ion Storm."

Romero and Wilson worked together at id Software and later at Ion Storm, before Wilson established Gathering of Developers (Godgames), which eventually became part of Take-Two.

"It got much worse at Godgames where he pretty much just partied all the time and after the whole thing got reined in by Take-Two he went underground for a while, waiting for his next victim/investor so he could go hogwild all over again. And thus was born Gamecock."

Wilson and Gamecock partner Harry Miller will be in the UK next week to help establish a European office in London ahead of planned releases for 2008.
 

One of the PS2's greatest titles is scheduled for release on the Wii

300°
362w ago - One of the biggest surprises of the PS2 game library for a lot of people was Okami. Lauded by both game critics and gamers alike, Okami proved that what people really wanted was something different.

Sure, a good Resident Evil title was always a plus, and God of War is an excellent series, but haven't we seen stuff like that before? Okami was unique because it honestly did implement a gameplay mechanic that nobody had ever seen before.

And now, Wii owners are getting a chance to experience the magic of Okami in a remake of the PS2 classic, with some awesome Wii additions (namely, the control scheme) thrown in.

Even the premise of Okami is incredibly unique -- you play as a god in the form of a wolf tasked with bringing life back to a dying world. The story was surprisingly good in the PS2 version of the game, and one aspect that really helped it out was the fantastically-written dialogue.

The same certainly holds true for the Wii version, which features a wonderfully full-fledged storyline and fantastic writing. Characters are diverse and varied, each with their unique personalities, and make the game all the more enjoyable to play.
