Activision have released a launch trailer for The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, the game is out Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U in North America today and lands here on Friday.
It’s looking a bit better than before, still rather brown but there again so is the television show.
Amusingly, the trailer still has the truck driving towards a sun that, as indicated by the decreasing shadow length, is only about 10 metres in front of the truck but for some reason the video has been mirrored.
Reasons to love Capcom: They are publishing Remember Me, a game that certain publishers turned down for a ridiculous reason.
“We had some that said, ‘Well, we don’t want to publish it because it’s not going to succeed. You can’t have a female character in games. It has to be a male character, simple as that,’ revealed creative director Jean-Max Morris.
Hey publishers, whats been at number one in the charts for two weeks? Oh yes, it’s Tomb Raider.
“We wanted to be able to tease Nilin’s private life,” continued Morris, “And that means for instance, at one point, we wanted a scene where she was kissing a guy. We had people tell us, ‘You can’t have a dude like the player kiss another dude in the game, that’s going to feel awkward’.”
Utterly, utterly ridiculous.
Staying with the ridiculous, American TV presenter Ryan Seacrest has announced Draw Something 2 via Twitter.
Sega Japan have announced two bona fide classic arcade titles rebooted for the 3DS. The first, Space Harrier, is already out and joining it will be the superb arcade racer, Super Hang-On.
The PlayStation Vita seems to have found its purpose in life, indie games. The latest title to court the dinky console is FEZ, co-creator Phil Fish said “We’re working with Sony on bringing FEZ to PSN and VITA.”
That does not mean the game is confirmed for the console but at least talks are happening.
A NeoGAF poster spotted this when he viewed his trophies, a PS Vita symbol beside Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Previously Konami have said there will be no Vita version so it’s probably just a glitch.
The other day we revealed that God Of War: Ascension was to be patched to make certain trials a little easier. Sony Santa Monica have clarified the patch details by saying that “The Trials of Archimedes will still be HARD on HARD, we are tweaking primarily for Normal, so to all, you can still have it the HARD WAY.”
At last, some good news for Wii U owners, assuming you count the release of a game that is over a year and half old. Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut has been listed for Wii U by Amazon alongside an official pack shot.
I did start writing about the announcement of a next gen lighting engine for the PS4 as other sites have covered it, but I lost the will to live half way through. We’ll show off games that use the fancy new lighting though. If and when.
And Finally, a real life version of an FPS, utterly bonkers and very NSFW thanks to lots of violence.
