It's always sad to see a studio close, even more so when it happens during the holidays. And when the studio in question's final game is a crummy movie tie-in? That might be the worst situation of all...
Square Enix's Final Fantasy VI will be released on PSN this week as part of the company's Winter of RPGs. The SNES game was originally released as Final Fantasy III in the States - but if the last fifteen years haven't been long enough for you to associate “Terra, Kefka and the best theme music in the series' history” with “the sixth Final Fantasy game,” we're not sure what to tell you...
Self-employed musicians understand how challenging it can be to find work and pay the bills in this economy. In a competitive market, it's not always easy to ensure a steady income. But it's not uncommon for those working in the videogame industry to band together for a charitable event to help those in need. Novum Initium is the latest benefit album dedicated to working musicians who struggle to make ends meet due to illness or disability.
One of the first gaming magazines to hit newsstands, GamePro, is reportedly closing up shop. After over 20 years of producing monthly magazines (and a recent switch to a quarterly format) and over ten years of running its website, the outlet will be ceasing its magazine production and closing down its site completely. While most of the editorial staff is to be laid off, some will apparently be retained in order to help GamePro Media in "refocusing its US business exclusively on its growing custom publishing and solutions business."..
Tales Studio, the independent developer responsible for the Tales series of RPGs since 1995's Tales of Phantasia, has been closed by parent company Namco Bandai. But Tales fans can take comfort in the fact that upcoming titles in the series haven't been cancelled – however, with the 25-year-old studio absorbed by Namco Bandai, the future of the series is for now in-house...
New Line Cinema is developing a movie based on Midway's retro arcade title Rampage. John Rickard, co-producer of Final Destination 5 and the Nightmare on Elm Street remake, is meeting with writers to develop a story around the game's conceit of “ordinary people become monsters and smash everything.” The movie's intended as a tentpole blockbuster release, which is Hollywood-talk for “this thing needs to make a lot of money, and we're going to make sure it does by putting Bradley Cooper in it...”
Arcade icon and Atari alumnus Ed Logg has been pegged to receive The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) 2012 Pioneer Award during the organization's 15th Annual Interactive Awards next February.
Logg is widely regarded as one of founder fathers of video gaming, having co-developed well known coin-op games for Atari such as Asteroids, Super Breakout, Centipede, and Gauntlet back in late '70s and early '80s. Logg also dabbled in the home console field, writing code for Tengen's version of Tetris for the NES, and later working on Wayne Gretzky 3D Hockey and San Francisco Rush for the N64...
Square Enix is injecting a little magic, spikey hair, and doe eyes into the holiday seasons with its launch of the Winter of RPGs campaign on the PlayStation Network. Starting next week, the studio will be releasing a handful of its most popular RPG titles onto Sony's online store, beginning with time-bending sequel to Chrono Trigger...
In case you somehow missed the media blitz that was last year’s Spike Video Game Awards, it’s a bit like a mini-E3 filled with B-list celebs and terrible award show banter. Honestly the winners hardly matter compared to all the trailers that premier there. Last year we got our first glimpses of Skyrim, Mass Effect 3 and Uncharted 3, and the year before they revealed Arkham City. Now we already know that the Dec 10 event will have at least three big announcements, with the reveal of an Alan Wake sequel, BioWare’s next game, and the first time we’ll see Metal Gear Solid: Rising since E3 2010...
