PixelJunk released a trailer for their upcoming title, PixelJunk Sidescroller. This might be better titled “PJ Shooter with all-new CRT TV effects.” See the trailer below.
Over at the live chat I realized that a lot of our members like to browse the occasional Cosplay gallery here and there once SDCC starts so why not give them a link to the gallery to end all galleries? You’ll have lots of fun seeing some veeeeeeeery good cosplay and some bad, bad efforts as SDCC starts to slow down until the innevitable “everything must go as it’s more expensive for us to take our stock back with us!” sales.
Some of you may know the Elder Scrolls series is a first person roleplaying game that, so far, contains 4 games. Elder Scrolls: Arena, Daggerfall, Morrowind, and Oblivion. For all of us people who love the Elder Scrolls, we jumped with joy at the announcement of the 5th game, Skyrim, and all the new features it’s going to bring!
During this year’s E3, Bethesda Softworks told us that Skyrim was going to be released 11/11/11. Weird date they picked, but they they showed us what the game would look like and how it played, and I was about to die from the way the new game has evolved from the previous titles of the series. I am in shock by the way they game graphics, attack system, and general movement animations have shot up since Oblivion.
As if November wasn’t packed full of big releases already, THQ has officially revealed the next iteration to their WWE simulation titles. The Smackdown vs Raw titling was dropped for the next title, with the new one simply being called WWE ’12, and with the announcement, THQ promises some huge changes to the ever popular wrestling titles (more so than past titles). Bigger, badder and better is the tagline, and it might just be a proper description for the title.
Some of the new features have already been announced, including the mysterious Predator Technology. THQ described it as a system that “delivers a fresh and strategic gameplay experience that looks, feels and plays better than ever before.” Action is supposedly more fluid, animations are more realistic, the AI has been improved, and there is a new submission system called “Breaking Point”. This has a new mini-game that includes a scramble to the ropes for a rope break, something fans have been asking for for a very long time.
