Brash Entertainment's 'Saw' Video Game Picked Up By Konami

293w ago - "Saw," one of the highest profile games left orphaned when Brash Entertainment went [Register or Login to view links], has been picked up by Konami.

Sources close to the project have confirmed that Konami has made a deal with Lionsgate, to whom the rights reverted when Brash breached its contract, and developer Zombie Studios.

The game will come out this fall along with the sixth "Saw" film (I almost wrote "Saw VI," but that series is getting so long in the tooth I'm wondering if they'll take a cue from the seventh "Star Trek" movie and just drop the numbers).

Konami is an obvious choice to pick up "Saw," since it has experience selling horror with a little franchise called "Silent Hill." But the game almost took a very intriguing twist: no publisher at all.

Or rather, no traditional publisher. Several sources told me that after it got the game rights back from Brash, Lionsgate strongly considered holding onto it and jumping into the videogame business by making "Saw" its first self-published game.

Like every other movie studio (some of whom have gotten into videogames, the rest of whom are considering it), Lionsgate was tempted by potential profits in the fast growing videogame biz. But in the end, execs...

293w ago - Courtesy of JoyStiq (linked above) comes some fresh Tekken 6 screens and a video for the PlayStation 3 console. To quote:

Looking for a fight? Well, you won't find one here. You will find a pop'n fresh trailer for Tekken 6, though. Ah, and new high-res screens of the incoming PS3 and Xbox 360 fighter.

It... looks like Tekken all right, although we're still a little underwhelmed by the visuals, especially after months of playing Namco's own Soul Calibur IV. You?

The video and a few of the screenshots are available below, with the rest linked above. Enjoy!

Video: X-Play Killzone 2 Review for the Sony PlayStation 3

50°
294w ago - Check out the awesome video below courtesy of G4TV's X-Play, who has given Killzone 2 a 5 out of 5 rating! To quote:

Some shooters try to hang a deep and meaningful story on their shootouts, and more often than not the plot twists end up either completely forgotten or way confusing. Not Killzone 2. This down the barrel look at life knows exactly why you're here. These Helghast have harried you for long enough.

It is time for them to be the home team. As ISA Sergeant Sevchenko, you will lead an invasion of the hazy Helghast home world, Helghan. After watching about ten seconds of an in-game news broadcast and an exciting dropship ride, the game grants you permission to fire, and off you go! Get the lead out! Why? Who cares!? They have red eyes! Do you need another reason?




The Killzone franchise has a checkered past. The first installment rode a wave of hype (not unlike the wave this game is riding) right into a wall of disappointment. Some hated the game's loose controls. Some hated the moronic AI. Some hated the glitches and slow-down that the game suffered from.

A good soundtrack and interesting ideas won't carry a game though, and the original Killzone not only didn't meet the unreasonable expectations...
