A new trailer for upcoming shooter ‘Vanquish’ from Platinum games has emerged and features a hero who appears to be the love child of Isaac Clarke and Master Chief. It also features a jet pack that allows our hero to slide around on his arse at high speed. I bet that chafes after a few hours.
Platinum games are determined not to make the same mistakes that occurred with witch ’em up, Bayonetta. The PS3 game was inferior and developed by Sega, not Platinum so producer Atsushi Inaba was asked if there will be any differences this time;
“Fundamentally, there are no differences between the two games,” he said, “And we are very well aware of the differences in the architecture of each of the different consoles. We just wanted to make sure the game was fitted to each. And certainly there are differences: the PS3 is kind of like a sports car that’s very high-performance and specific in its usage, whereas the 360 is more like a car that everybody’s driving. It doesn’t have the same range as a sports car, but it has more versatility.
In other words, the PS3 is an Audi – a sleek, curvy powerhouse but you couldn’t carry a fridge home from Argos in the back, and the XBox 360 is a Volvo – sensible, easy to use and you can get an months worth of shopping and two screaming kids in the back.
Note: Neither car allows you race around the M25 on your butt cheeks.
