You know that game that was in production for 10 years only to be canned? Well turns out Gearbox Software (Borderlands) have taken over the reigns from 3D Realms and is finishing off Duke Nukem Forever.
So this is it, the last episode of season three — episode five. The Devil’s Playhouse drawing to a close. Following up Beyond The Alley of the Dolls, Max is transformed into a giant beast roaming New York City. And it’s up to Sam and friends to restore Max to his original yappy self.
Surprise, surprise, there are no psychic powers to play with this time. Though you will encounter some remnants of them in unexpected ways. As with the other episode titles this season, this one’s based on a film — The City That Never Sleeps.
While 2K Marin was left to take care of BioShock 2, Irrational Games was sneakily working on the third BioShock game. And guess what, it takes place in the sky! First exploding RC cars, and now flying cities — videogames are crazy!
So BioShock Infinite. The story takes place in 1912, a good 30 years before Rapture was built. Your character actually talks and has a personality, and you also get an AI companion. So it might not have the same creepy atmosphere as the first two titles, but change is good, and that’s what the industry should be about. It’s scheduled to drop sometime in 2012, so hopefully Levine and Co. can finish it before the world is destroyed by meteors or something.
These epic CGI trailers are a bit toocommonthese days, but there’s one after the break if you care to look.
And it’s no ordinary RC car either, it’s a fully equipped “surveillance vehicle” with a microphone and video camera that transmits back to the controller. The car also features as a killstreak reward in Black Ops’ multiplayer.
Sure it’s about as useless as the night vision goggles — I mean how discrete really is an RC car? But if you want to plunk down your money on one, the opportunity’s there…
