128w ago - Codemasters Community Manager Benjamin Bateman is here with some fresh video footage from E3 2011 of Bodycount on the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Bodycount is back and I'm here to divulge all the juicy intel. The Codemasters Guildford studio has been tightly clammed since last year's E3 so you'd be forgiven for asking, what is Bodycount?
Bodycount is an adrenaline-inducing, explosive torrent of action, destruction and gun ecstasy. It's an FPS that puts the fun back into firepower. But these words can barely do it justice, so here's our brand new gameplay trailer from E3.
Right off the bat you can see the explosive boom-stick that is the shotgun, and it really sums up what Bodycount is. This isn't just another shooter; this is a gun centerfold that gives you amazingly satisfying guns that you will never forget.
The mantra in the team has been 'gun, bullet, world' - everything is focused on the experience of squeezing the trigger, hearing bullets tear through the air and watching them obliterate enemies and the environment.
Every gun has been carefully crafted for your gaming pleasure. Bodycount has everything from a deadly pistol all the way up to super-charged futuristic weaponry used...
128w ago - Today Sound Director and Chief Creative Officer Akira Yamaoka at Grasshopper Manufacture has revealed the audio influences for Shadows of the Damned on PS3.
To quote: Greetings fellow demon hunters! I'm the Sound Director and Chief Creative Officer at Grasshopper Manufacture.
Some people may know me from my work on the Silent Hill series, but today I'm here to talk about our latest game – Shadows of the Damned, out now on the PS3.
Music plays an incredibly important role in setting the atmosphere for games, and it's especially vital in an action-horror game like Shadows of the Damned.
When scoring Damned, I tried to imagine tracks that would bring Hell to life for the player and the lead character Garcia. Designing music isn't always the most transparent task, so in this blog post I want to explain my thoughts behind the creation of a few tracks included in the pre-order bonus soundtrack.
You could say I created this track to be the title song for Shadows of the Damned. Originally, I had planned to make it a duet, as sort of a theme for the two lovers: Garcia and Paula. I wanted to match the heavy, aggressive sound to the game world with Paula and Garcia at the center.
