Requiem: Bloodmare Trailer - Where's The Blood?

50°
362w ago - Gravity Interactive have released the official trailer for their upcoming "M" rated horror themed MMO Requiem: Bloodymare. Although still excited about this title, I am a bit disappointed that the trailer does not depict the blood and gore they have promised us.

The screenshots they sent us last week looked so promising - full of decapitations, fountains of blood gushing forth from your foes, scantily clad drowish looking creatures, and disgusting monsters hell-bent on devouring your person. Why in the world did they not show this in the trailer?

There is hardly anything shown in this video that warrants and "M" rating - you see tons of magic and hit effects flying about, and maybe once in a while a few blood droplets hit the camera - but that is it. Instead of a gratuitous blood soaked fightfest we get a video that is a bit blurry, the colors are washed out and the action happens so fast that one can scarcely blink lest something is missed.

Hopefully the next trailer they send us will be much better than this one - and by "better" I am hoping that it shows brighter colors, better editing, and more blood. If you are interested in seeing any other videos from this MMO, YouTube has a few character creation videos and a gameplay clips posted.

I would have put them on...

Rock Band boosts track sales; song price to increase by end of month

50°
362w ago - It's another success for the music game genre as Harmonix sells more than 2.5 million downloadable songs from their hit game, Rock Band. This success reminds us of the time when digital music sales were also boosted thanks to Guitar Hero III.

According to Harmonix and MTV Games, the best selling tracks from Rock Band (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3) are from the Metallica Pack, which features the original versions of "Ride the Lightning", "Blackened," and "And Justice for All."

Other hit downloads include tracks from The Police, Queens of the Stone Age, David Bowie and Black Sabbath. Paul DeGooyer, MTV Senior VP of home entertainment, music and games, says we'll be able to see album releases "very shortly."

If you're a fan of Rock Band, you probably have until the end of the month to take advantage of their US$ 0.99 per song price tag. According to DeGooyer, the price will only be available for a limited time and will become US$ 2 by the end of the month.
 

Blu-Ray crushing rival DVD format in Japan: study

50°
362w ago - TOKYO (AFP) - Next-generation DVDs are catching on with Japanese consumers, with sales picking up sharply at the end of 2007 and the Blu-Ray format blowing away the rival HD-DVD platform, new figures show.

In a replay of the VHS-Betamax battle in video cassette tapes in the late 1970s, two different DVD formats are hitting the market offering cinematic quality images and interactive entertainment -- but at a significantly higher price than traditional DVDs.

A major study of 2,300 electronic stores across Japan found that consumers were increasingly buying the next-generation DVD recorders.

The proportion of DVD recorders sold that were next-generation rose from 6.1 percent in October to around 20 percent in November and December, said the study by Japan's Business Computer News think tank released Thursday.

Due to the price difference, next-generation DVDs made up a lucrative 35 percent of the total value of DVD recorder sales in the last two months of 2007, it said.

Blu-Ray, the format created by Sony Corp., accounted for a crushing 90 percent of next-generation DVD recorder sales in the three-month period, the study said.

Blu-Ray is used in Sony's PlayStation 3 video-game machine, but the study only looked at living-room DVD recorders.

Alone in the Dark for PS3

50°
362w ago - When it comes to cutting edge trouser-spoilers, Resident Evil is still the daddy. Continually bending the rules of survival horror, the fourth game in the series was not only one of the best games on PS2, but probably one of the best games ever made.

And yet... while they could certainly lay claim to propelling horror gaming forward with arse-clenching frightfests like RE Nemesis, Capcom can't claim to have invented the genre. That honour goes to Alone in the Dark, originally developed by Infogrames, which squeaked out in impressively spooksome form as a PC game - and then 3DO conversion - back in 1992, a full four years ahead of RE.

But in classic horror movie fashion, Alone in the Dark isn't just back from the dead, it's back bigger, better and more dangerous than ever. The fifth game in the series, developed by Test Drive Unlimited coders Eden and penciled in for a March release, is a hugely ambitious, brain-hurtingly large-scale ghost story.

You play Edward Carnby, paranormal 'tec and - in his present guise, at least - lawyer-baiting twin of ex-Kylie squeeze, Olivier Martinez. The story, penned by Sleepers writer Lorenzo Carcetera, has been sealed off like a crime scene, so how Carnby (who, according to Eden, is the same Carnby that turned up in the original Alone in the...
