11w ago - High Moon Studios Game Director Sean Miller shared a video today spotlighting High Moon: Deadpool on PlayStation 3 dubbed Madness is His Method below.
To quote: This is Sean Miller, Director of Deadpool, coming this summer to PS3 from High Moon Studios and Activision.
We asked Deadpool, who graciously volunteered his leadership to relieve us of the pressures of developing a video game for him, to make a thoughtful video carefully outlining the nuanced gameplay and character features gamers could look forward to in his self-titled debut later this year.
As you can see in this new gameplay trailer, he... disagreed artistically. But while Deadpool sleeps off the tray of dessert chimichangas (he's named them 'chillychangas' he just finished off, I'm free to give you a more in-depth introduction to Deadpool.
If you're not familiar with High Moon Studios, we're the team behind two of the highest-rated Transformers video games of all time: Transformers: War for Cybertron and its sequel, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.
Deadpool is more than just a poster on our wall here - he's real to us, and his chaotic presence is a well we draw from constantly in designing his game. Deadpool...
12w ago - Crystal Dynamics Global Brand Director Karl Stewart announced that Tomb Raider is out today and shared details on the long and winding road below.
To quote: Crystal Dynamics - where the Tomb Raider team works - can be found in a complex at the end of a long road in Redwood City in San Francisco. Without laboring the comparison, Tomb Raider's journey from inception to being in stores today has some similarities.
You exit a freeway - in our case the conventional expectations of what Tomb Raider should be, you negotiate a lengthy curve (securing support for a bold new direction), negotiate through the stop signs of constant testing and second guessing before finally enjoying what appears to be a smooth home stretch.
Here's where my comparison breaks down however. While the Crystal team has learned to watch their velocity on approach to avoid speed tickets, Tomb Raider on the other hand has hit the gas and enjoyed a breakneck ride in the past few months to launch. It's a clichéd term but it truly has been a rollercoaster ride for the team - an unforgettable one - to get to this point.
There's a reason why we have been using the hashtag #Reborn to accompany all our discussion of Tomb Raider at launch. It truly does...
