Since the debut of FIFA International Soccer in 1993 each new version of EA's officially licensed soccer series has always delivered something fresh to the playing field - from the introduction of club teams (FIFA Soccer '95) and real player names (FIFA Soccer '96), through to power bars for shots (FIFA Soccer 2002) and the ability to control a second player "off the ball" (FIFA Soccer 2004).
Keeping with tradition, the upcoming FIFA 08 packs in a host of changes that promise to
Interplay has posted an exponential rise in revenues on the sale of the Fallout IP to Bethesda. Now the firm says it's ready to secure funding for "Fallout Online."
Interplay CEO Herve Caen said in a statement, "I am pleased with the progress the company has made, particularly with our debt load, which has improved from $59 million in December 2001 to less than $3 million today.
"With that difficult period behind us, we are focused on securing funding for development of a Massively
With Fallout's rabid fanbase, it isn't a surprise that chief among the requests voiced to Bethesda about the upcoming Fallout 3 was: "do not screw it up." And it'll sound familiar to anyone who chanced upon the official forum site.
But fans shouldn't fret. From day one, as executive producer Todd Howard reveals, Bethesda has been working from the original Fallout design - using the Fallout Vision Statement, created when the first game was just a twinkle in an old mans
If you never see the point of buying every yearly update of EA's sports titles, EA's about to give you one: from September 1 it will begin shutting down the online servers for most of its 2006-edition sports titles.
As of that date, the online gameplay options on games like FIFA World Cup 2006, NBA Live 06, Madden 06 and Tiger Woods 06 will be rendered useless on all formats including PC.
This means you'll have to purchase the newer editions of the games to continue the fight via the web, or
Koei's high speed, anti gravity racer has been delayed on PS3 due to "difficulties," but that hasn't stopped us strapping ourselves into the Xbox 360 version to capture this exclusive footage of Fatal Inertia's cockpit view.
Using the game's Velocity race mode we zoomed around two of the game's six locations. The first, Paradise Isle, is a lush, tropical environment set in the blazing sun and littered with exotic plants and sandy beaches. The second, Lost Canyon, is a much more barren and
Forza 2 is now the proud daddy of its first ever downloadable content, which you should be able to grab right this minute from Xbox Live Marketplace.
Part of the new content for the racing game is free, and for one of your downloads you'll boost the game's vehicle roster with three new motors - premiere Nissan models; the 2007 Sentra SE-R, Altima, and 350Z.
A fourth car, the Peugeot 908, can also be downloaded but that will cost you a whopping 50 Microsoft
"Just a single button for combat?" may have been many people's reaction when developer Lionhead announced that, yes, just a single button press would perform all Fable 2's hand-to-hand maneuvers. Ignore the doom-mongers, though. By the looks of this footage it was a decision worth taking.
The gameplay footage contained in this short studio feature certainly isn't finished. But it's complete enough to show off some neat moves triggered by the context-sensitive combat system - an “over the
Tuesday 31 July 2007 "Just a single button for combat?" may have been many people's reaction when developer Lionhead announced that, yes, just a single button press would perform all Fable 2's hand-to-hand maneovers. Ignore the doom-mongers, though. By the looks of this footage it was a decision worth taking. The gameplay footage contained in this short studio feature certainly isn't finished.
After a brief intermission, Lionhead has released the second episode in its Fable 2 video series on Xbox Live, to coincide with the studio's 10th anniversary. Aww.
This second movie shows off the one-button combat system, as well as digging into some of the studios' real-life combat antics and a soccer match against Rare (because they're all friendly at MGS).
The sequel seems to be shaping up nicely - if Lionhead doesn't rush it.
"This is a very exciting time for us," said Peter Molyneux.
If you're jonesing for more out of Forza 2 (check out the review here), developer Turn 10 sends word that the first batch of download content will be released next month.
A series of new car packs and racetracks will start to arrive on Xbox Live Marketplace in August, and run right through to the end of the year, says Turn 10.
Unfortunately, there's no word on whether the packs will be free or if we'll have to hand over wads of cold, hard Microsoft Points.
"Forza Motorsport 2 is definitely
