Like strategy card games? Namco Bandai officially announced today that the American version of Culdcept SAGA is coming this Summer on the Xbox 360. If you haven't heard of this series, it began with a little-known but great entry on the PlayStation 2. The latest version will feature Xbox Live multiplayer action. Culdcept SAGA combines trading card-based battles and a board game-style world. Supposedly a popular Japanese sci-fi writer developed the story.
Culdcept SAGA involves the standard
Fresh out of the sewer, mutated for your viewing enjoyment, comes a brand stinkin' new video that showcases your favorite subterranean superheroes in action. There's a wide variety of action to be seen here, from single turtle throwdowns to frantic character-swapping melees, and it happens all over the place, from the deep in the sewers to the top of giant parade floats. Mayhem galore.
From the looks of things, these Turtles have been studying tapes of the Prince and Kratos in action - two
Microsoft is trying to "bump up the pipeline" on Xbox Live Arcade and wants to see more releases on the service, Casual Games general manager Bryan Trussel has said.
Speaking at the Game Developers Conference last week, Trussel said that Microsoft is "trying to bump up the pipeline quite a bit."
"We have these Wednesdays where we release our games and they come out not every week but most weeks," he said. "We're increasing that pipeline. We want to do a couple of things; we want to have more
The as yet unannounced Condemned 2 has been listed on a retailer, even allowing for customers to pre-order their copy.
The brief synopsis for the sequel reads: "A superb sequel of brilliantly brutal bloody hand to hand brawling...", which doesn't reveal much, and doesn't seem to make much sense either.
But play.com is seemingly so sure of its release that it even specifies a date to the day, down as November 30, 2007.
We contacted Sega but were offered "no comment" on the
PC gamers have been playing online matches and downloading extra content long before Xbox LIVE came around. But while Xbox LIVE offers these features under a single, tidy service, doing so on a PC can sometimes be a slightly messier affair. Microsoft is looking to clean things up - and make a bit of money, we imagine - when it debuts its Games for Windows - LIVE service on May 8 of this year for the new Vista operating system.
Perhaps the biggest draw for the new service will be the
At a preview event in Europe yesterday, Transformers: The Game was presented to an underwhelmed crowed of journos, as the giant-robot action failed to meet high expectations set by the movie. Giant robots, guns, rockets, explosions - it's perfect videogame fodder.
We were shown a city-based level that demonstrated destructible scenery by having robots smashing through buildings. We were also shown the combat system as two robots squared up to each other.
But the physics engine lacked impact
Rumor claiming to have details on planned new content for Realtime Worlds' Xbox 360 game Crackdown has surfaced on the 'net.
Reported on website msxbox-world.com, the rumor comes via its forum, where a poster says "An un-named source who I have no doubt in trusting has revealed to me that Crackdown is set for some new content."
The poster says the content "is possibly going to be free" and will include "things like vehicle impounding (taking marked cars back to the Agency); street racing vs.
id Software has significant plans for its Enemy Territory series judging by the words spilling out its mouth during a recent interview on the forthcoming Quake Wars.
Speaking to PC Zone magazine about what's next for ET, id's Kevin Cloud explained the developer is "keen to start on a new world in a new ET, building on what we've done."
Quite where a new Enemy Territory would be set is open to speculation - Cloud didn't go into specifics - but there's already a number of ideas bouncing around
Assassin's Creed is set to get its own book trilogy written by a bestselling author, which clearly makes the Xbox 360 and PS3 game as important as Halo, which also has its own range of books.
The first novel in the Assassin's Creed trilogy is due to launch in October 2007 and will be penned by New York Times bestselling author Steven Barnes. The books will aim to expand on the game by covering the back back-story of protagonist Altair and Third Crusade
We reported yesterday that Xbox 360 exclusive action title, Too Human, may have been delayed until 2008. Not good news, considering this game was originally in development on PSone.
Suggesting that Microsoft's comments aren't 100 percent accurate, Silicon Knight president Dennis Dyack hit the Neogaf forums and had a few things to say: "I am sorry to see not much has changed here on the GAF. There should be no question as to why many developers do not post here. Thanks to those who were
