In the most recent round of panels revealed for Saturday of San Diego Comic Con, an interesting new tidbit escaped about games based on Marvel Comics. What's Activision have planned next for Marvel fans?
For months fans of Japanese RPGs have been lobbying Nintendo of America hard to bring over some JPRGS games that garnered much acclaim in their native country. The one that US fans clamored for the most had to be Xenoblade Chronicles, as it’s been fully localized and out in Europe for too long with no word from NOA. Now, after some gave up hope, Nintendo has confirmed a US release for 2012, and according to one source it’ll be a GameStop exclusive...
Silicon Knights, developer of X-Men: Destiny and 2002's cult GameCube title Eternal Darkness, has laid off a large majority of staff, reports 1up. The studio is said to have dismissed 72 employees to pare its staff down to a “core staff” of 25. In July, Silicon Knights was staffed by 97 employees and had plans to hire 80 more, following a CDN $3 million Ontario government grant aimed at turning the developer into a “self-sustaining” games publisher...
Here's three new trailers for Silicon Knights' upcoming X-Men: Destiny, each highlighting a different set of X-Gene powers that can be gained by donning the appropriate X-spandex. There's a look at some of the powers for Havok, Emma Frost and Juggernaut, as well as the host of better-known mutants who'll be playing supporting roles in your fledgling superhero's saga...
With less than a month until the late-September release of X-Men: Destiny, Silicon Knights' mutant action-RPG, you've probably seen all the teasers and promo stills you can muster interest for. This behind-the-scenes look at the title takes a gander at the motion-capture and voice-acting work required to craft a game which allows you, in the words of head Knight Dennis Dyack, “to interact in very deep and meaningful ways within the universe.” Well, that's what we all want out of life, after all...
With two upcoming games based on Marvel comic book characters, you'd have to be a damn fool not to notice the opportunity for a bit of cross-promotional synergy. With both hitting retail soon, building a bit of mutually beneficial hype into Silicon Knights' X-Men Destiny and Beenox's Spider-Man: Edge of Time was a no-brainer. Pre-order either title and you'll receive a code to unlock bonus costumes inspired by the characters' previous adventures and/or latent abilities...
Operation Rainfall, the fan group petitioning for Nintendo of America to release a trio of Wii JRPGs in the US, claims to have insider info from an anonymous source that two of those games, Xenoblade and The Last Story, are currently in the process of being localized for North America. In fact, the source says that localization for Xenoblade was completed a over month ago, while The Last Story is in progress and will begin the testing phase soon...
Over the last couple weeks, online group Operation Rainfall has been boldly pushing Nintendo to do something that shouldn’t be too hard: publish good games. Unfortunately the games in question are fairly niche JRPGs, a genre that’s never been a big seller for Wii. Nintendo of America promised a response to the vocal collective, but it wasn’t the one we wanted to hear. NoA said it currently has “no plans” to publish those games...
As JRPG fans, we usually begin anticipating a game before it's even announced outside of Japan, and that usually means crossing our fingers and waiting to see if it gets localized for our country. Lamentably, all too often these games never see a broader release. In the case of Wii-exclusive JRPGs, one group is actually doing something about our plight - Operation Rainfall, a fan-organized group dedicated to pressuring Nintendo of America to localize specific JRPGs for North American release. They have a plan, and they need your help...
Move over Gal Gun, there's a new king of pathetic sex games in town! Marvel Brothel is a game in which Professor-X turns his mutant academy into the best little whore-house in upstate New York...
