Above: In Fallout: New Vegas, Michael Dorn will reprise his role as Marcus, the super intelligent Super Mutant from Fallout 2
QuakeCon 2010 is in full swing. But if you couldn’t make it the convention, you can check out a ton of new images released by Bethesda for their games at the show. See more of RAGE, Fallout: New Vegas, Brink, and Hunted: The Demon’s Forge inside…
I love John Carmack. I love John Carmack a great deal. A bona fide technical genius, he's like the modern-day equivalent of crackpot medieval alchemist, always pottering around in his lab and occasionally surfacing to nonchelantly unleash another reality-bending innovation on the unsuspecting world. If he wanted to, he could get Crysis 2 running on a household blender at 120 frames per second, and he wouldn't even act like it was a big deal.
As we reported last night, his latest proclamation of 'Screw you, I am the mighty Carmack' came yesterday at his opening Quakecon keynote. Having teased a little 'neat and unannounced' surprise earlier in the week, he revealed that unassuming little item to be Rage, id's insanely beautiful upcoming shooter, running at a creosote-smooth 60 frames per second on the iPhone. And while a tad cut down from its PC and console brothers, it's a spectacular sight to behold. And we now have video of the presentation. Click on and feast your eyes.
Fans waiting for niche developer id Software's next big title can get their thumbs into the action when a special version of Rage comes out for the iPhone later this year. Another, fuller version of the game will also launch on the iPhone alongside the console and PC releases next year.
The announcement came at QuakeCon, or as people who don't understand the appeal of Quake put it - that thing where a bunch of PC nerds get together...
Publisher Ubisoft’s ridiculous proprietary anti-piracy software, which requires a constant connection between your PC and Ubisoft’s servers, will not be applied to the company’s upcoming real-time strategy game, RUSE. The game will instead use the Steamworks API created by distributor/developer Valve. You will still have to activate RUSE online, but a constant connection to Steam’s servers isn’t required, which is a big improvement over the Ubisoft system...
If there's one thing everyone loves, it's a good horror story. Well, apart from people with pacemakers. To celebrate their exclusive hands-on with RAGE this month (y'know, that little shooter that could be one of the greatest games ever), OPM UK has turned itself into a momument to all things that go bump in night. Inside, you'll find a selection of the horrific goodness packed into the special issue.
Next March, fans of THQ’s Red Faction series should probably avoid tuning into the Syfy channel for at least a couple weeks. Fans of low-budget sci-fi flicks with corny acting and lame special effects, however, should tune into Syfy for the premiere of the live-action movie Red Faction: Origins...
Hold me mummy. This Red Faction looks way scarier than the last one.
With every game publisher Rockstar releases, it seems like the idea of videogame violence as "controversial" dies just a little. In fact, we've barely heard a peep from would-be culture critics over the release of Red Dead Redemption, despite ads for it being plastered seemingly everywhere we look. However, that didn't stop the question of violence from coming up in a BBC interview with Lazlow, who's been all but synonymous with Grand Theft Auto and Rockstar for nearly a decade now.
"Our games are not designed for young people," Lazlow said after being asked how he felt about accusations that games cause real-world violence. "If you're a parent and buy one of our games for your child you're a terrible parent," Lazlow said.
Violence wasn't the focus of the 13-question interview (which is almost surprising), and really, Lazlow was reaffirming what Rockstar's been saying for years...
You probably know about Resident Evil: Afterlife. It's a new Resident Evil movie directed by Paul WS Anderson and starring Mila Jovovovich. There was a proper trailer released for it a little while ago. But this trailer is way funnier than the proper one.
