First Glimpse of Aliens: Colonial Marines on PS3 from E3 2011

50°
160w ago - Sony's Latin America Blog Manager Lorenzo Grajales has unveiled the first glimpse of Aliens: Colonial Marines on PS3 from E3 2011.

To quote: During E3 2011, I entered a gloomy room and found myself before Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford. He was there to show off Aliens: Colonial Marines, the upcoming first-person shooter that's scheduled to hit the PS3 in 2012.

When you hear a developer talk about his game with the passion Pitchford demonstrated, you know the studio is on the right track. Gearbox Software is packed with fans of the Aliens films; seeing the game in action, it shows.

The demo starts with the crash of the U.S.S. Sulaco, the high-tech marine vessel from the second film. You wake up to find yourself in a nightmare, surrounded by xenomorphs with no idea about what is happening. But you're not alone – you'll have a group of highly trained marines at your side wielding state-of-the-art military technology, from the iconic pulse rifle and flamethrower to the pulverizing smart gun.

During his presentation, Pitchford assured us that this is the real sequel to Aliens and everything indicates that this is so, from the Marines' tools (including motion trackers) to the automatic turrets that we saw on the special edition of Aliens; they are all here. The...

From his site: New graphics for my latest console: PlayStation 3! Rules of the game are the same as other ports: frog can jump forward, left, right (not backward) and the goal is to jump over all the leaf of the level.

There are 10 levels, out of 100 random ones

Controls:

• Move the frog with arrow keys
• Restart level with Circle button

Scogger 0.1 for PS3 Changelog:

• First and last version
• New fantastic graphics in HD thanks to SpriteAttack!

Thanks to SDL library I ported the original game on PC in a breeze, then I started changing every single image, add some sort of animation and writing some sort of animation code, tweaking with frames, rewrite menu code, polishing the trash code... so I did 90% of the work PC side. Porting it over on PS3 was (almost) straightforward.

160w ago - Today SSX Creative Director Todd Batty has shared an E3 2011 video detailing the use of NASA satellite maps to create new SSX runs and footage of the PS3-exclusive Mount Fuji level!

To quote: To be honest, I was completely overwhelmed by the reaction to [Register or Login to view links] coming out of E3.

In the early days of this project, there was a lot of debate internally at [Register or Login to view links] about how many SSX fans still existed and how much interest remained in the market for games like SSX, and even some of the games we have taken further inspiration from such as Burnout and old-school Tony Hawk.

The huge reaction to our launch trailer at the [Register or Login to view links]'s was the first indication that the SSX fan base was still very much alive and as passionate as ever, but actually meeting some of these people and seeing their reaction to what we are building first-hand was truly inspirational.





Of course, with that passion comes a lot of strong opinions on what else we should be adding to the game or bringing back from the old games. We know we can't possibly please everyone, but our fans should know that we are listening to everything they say and that the...
