I don’t know about you, but the Monkey Island 2 video diary (featured right after the break) gave me a total geekgasm. Behind the scenes talking heads with the original developers, and Dominic Armato recording lines for the voice of Guybrush, as well as scenes from the special edition in action.
So hold onto your rubber chickens folks, MI2:SE should be releasing in the coming months…
Insomniac Games have announced a partnership with EA Partners, and a new game franchise that will land on the Xbox 360 as well as the PlayStation 3. It sounds similar to the deal between Bungie and Activision, though this is no 10-year long ordeal.
Insomniac will also continue to develop Sony exclusive titles. It’s good news I think, spreading the love. EA must have had an enticing offer, what will Insomniac making Sony games for the past 16 or so years.
In the vein of Ninja Gaiden, Bayonetta and Devil May Cry comes another third person actoin adventure game involving blood, ridiculous abilities and perhaps more than its fair share of leather. The game is called Knights Contract and is scheduled for 2011 on both the PS3 and Xbox360. Some screenshots are included after the break.
KillZone was a stunner of a game when it came out, in fact it still holds its own in the looks department, and so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that a third game in the franchise is being planned. Killzone 3 has been announced by Sony (after some scans hitting the net) and they have sent through some screenshot of the new game to complement the announcement, unfortunately the screens that were sent through were not of an exceptionally large size, they are after the break.
This is a tough title to word, because while it is the truth, it’s not quite what many of us were hoping for. The announcement came yesterday that Sony would be teaming up with MUBI (who for the record I had never heard of) to provide movie content via the Playstation Network. The Mubi interface will be available for free from the PS3 store and will allow gamers to download movies from the Mubi range. Now the part that perhaps might let some of us down, the movies contained in the Mubi library all fall under the labels of Classical, Independent and International…. not exactly the download service that many of us have been waiting for. But great news for those of us really hanging out to download that art house Japanese movie that we had never heard of before, or are there more cinematic connoisseurs out there than I realised? The service is to launch in various countries “This Spring”
This news is unrelated to the Movie download option that has recently appeared in Australia.
With such a plethora of music rhythm games, especially with the more recent versions including a vocalist position, for the Xbox 360 it is easy to forget that there is a pretty decent karaoke game available in the form of Lips. Lips: I Love The 80’s is the third release of stand-alone DLC after Lips: Number One Hits and Lips: Party Classics. The good news for people like me, the mature gamer, is that the track list on Lips: I Love The 80’s will greet you like a pile of mix tapes you made for your girlfriend at high school. So break out the legwarmers and shoulder pads, stock up on Mello Yello and Sherbet Dabs and prepare for a rad time!
