Archive for July, 2006
I’ve never hidden how much I enjoy the Tony Hawks series (well apart from THPS 4 & onwards) & after watching a new gameplay video on GameTrailers, I’m one very happy gamer!
It looks great, especially the slo mo sections where the camera zooms in & you see the different ways the skaters use & position their feet on the board to pull off tricks.
I wonder if the slo mo will be a part of the game, maybe you build up your special meter & once it’s full you press a certain button which initiates the slo mo & you can pull of complicated tricks.
Check the link below & choose the July 22nd gameplay trailer:
Remember that cool tech demo from a while ago about Digital Molecular Matter (DMM), to be used in upcoming LucasArts games? And remember that Star Wars game demo from yesterday? Well PS3Land has an interviews with the makers of DMM, Pixelux Entertainment.
Interestingly, LucasArts has an exclusive deal with Pixelux for their DMM technology until October 2008. I don’t really want to get much more into this interview, because you can read it for yourself over at PS3Land. It’s a cool read and PS3Land deserves your visit.
I had the opportunity to pre-order a PS3 at the local Toys ‘R’ Us here in Ottawa, so I did so. Later they called me back to inquire about whether I wanted the 60GB HDD or the 20GB HDD. They haven’t said anything about any bundling they might require, but that would be no big deal to me anyway. I plan to buy 3 extra controllers and a couple games anyway.
Which got me thinking, if any bundle would require that I purchase a few games, say three, which would they be?
IGN has twenty-four (yup, 23!) games listed as launch games for the PS3. Check out the list and tell me which three games you would choose.
For me, it was a hard decision, but I guess I’d have to go for:
* Call of Duty 3
* Need for Speed Carbon
* Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom
* Resistance: Fall of Man
* Marvel: Ultimate Alliance
So, what do you think?
Edit: 23 games, not 24, and in case you’re wondering, here they are:
Resistance: Fall of Man
John Woo Presents Stranglehold
Alone in the Dark
Bladestorm: The Hundred Years War
EA Sports Fight Night Round 3
Tony Hawk’s Project 8
Sonic the Hedgehog
NBA Live 07
Full Auto 2: Battlelines
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance
Ridge Racer 7
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas
Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom
College Hoops 2K7
Madden NFL 07
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07
Need for Speed Carbon
flOw (PS3 Hub Download)
Call of Duty 3
Here’s the point: It’s cool! If you’re a Star Wars fan at all, you gotta check out this tiny video. It’s freekin’ cool!
Edit: I’ve since found out that this is a technical demo of some sort, and who knows what kind of game this might turn out to be.
