Here is something that is always nice to see, a little pre-show walk through of SONY’s booth with your host: James Gallagher of EU PlayStation.Blog.
Here are some of the special attacks you can do in Kung-Fu: Live.
- Power Punch: Rush left or right horizontally with devastating speed and force.
- Time Stop: Slow down the speed of time to allow for multiple precise attacks.
- Lighting Attack: Shock your opponents with brutal electricity
- Ground Pound: Slam into the cement with the player’s fist to send shockwaves to all of the enemies.
A very cool and unique feature is the ability to have a 5 person party brawl! Four people can pick up a controller to fight as the Dragon Gang against the person playing live on camera! More details on this closer to the games release.
Then some details about a boss fight. You get to fight against 4-story tall characters called the “Gatekeepers”.
In order to take down the giants, the player had to utilize all of his special moves and attacks, while also platforming all across the giant arena, even ‘flying’ into the air using updrafts in the canyon by holding their arms out to lift them up.
Kung-Fu LIVE fuses players into a world of pulp action-comics with accurate real-time motion and image scanning, letting fans step into the fight like never before. Using the PlayStation®Eye, Virtual Air Guitar Company’s patented Freemotion® technology has helped to create the first controller-free PlayStation®Move fighting game of its kind that challenges players to survive using a limitless array of martial arts and acrobatic moves using their own bodies. With enormous interactive environments, a roster of impossible-made-possible power moves, and unique multiplayer components, Kung-Fu LIVE ensures that your Bruce Lee moments will be full of awesomeness!
Gamescom Demonstration Recap:
‘THE MASTER AND THE APPRENTICE’ – Set in the majestic dojo on ‘Goji Lake’, a mysterious ‘White Warrior’ prepares the player for combat by putting them to the test launching deadly flying kicks, incredibly fast punches, and magically cloning herself to attack the player from three different directions.
‘DRAGON ATTACK’ – The player is cornered in a back alley brawl with a group of thugs known as the ‘C-Street Dragon Gang.’ This is the player’s first opportunity to put some of their skills to the test, utilizing any move they have in their body’s own arsenal. In addition to that, the player can unleash their superhuman powers on the Dragons like the ‘Power Punch’ (rushing left and right horizontally with devastating speed and force), Time Stop (slowing down the speed of time to allow for multiple precise attacks), Lighting Attack (shocking their opponents with brutal electricity), and Ground Pound (slamming into the cement with the player’s fist to send shockwaves to all of the enemies.)
In this section, players also had the opportunity to pick up a controller to fight AS the Dragon Gang AGAINST the fighter playing live on camera. This is a first for a full-body motion game, and in the final release, players can use up to four controllers against one fighter in an all-out 5 person party brawl. This innovative feature will be demonstrated in more depth later this Fall closer to release.
‘FIGHTING ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS’ – Finally, the players saw a fight against two loud, 4-story tall characters known as the ‘Gatekeepers.’ The Gatekeepers are giant, club-wielding, tea-drinking ‘boss’ characters with an unusual appreciation for fine china. In order to take down the giants, the player had to utilize all of his special moves and attacks, while also platforming all across the giant arena, even ‘flying’ into the air using updrafts in the canyon by holding their arms out to lift them up.

In case you missed the trailer here it is again:
Looks like some new information has been posted over at the Official Blog. To start, B-Spec mode is back (where you’re basically the ‘Team Director’ and you use your driver’s strengths and techniques to direct him through a race toward victory. From other reports I read, it’s a lot more in-depth than B-Spec modes of the past, but it’s still not for everyone (after all, why get a racing game and not race?). A-Spec mode, of course, will be the biggest draw, since that actually puts you in the driver’s seat.
The Garage will allow you to own multiple cars, and the whole sorting system has been re-done to make finding specific rides MUCH easier. You still purchase cars from dealerships (both new and used), as well as be able to take your vehicles to tuning shops for body kits and new parts. No idea if you’re able to paint your cars any color you want, though.
Geoff Keighley, you know the Video Game Journalist and Host of Spike TV’s GTTV. Well earlier today he tweeted that Portal 2 is getting a launch date of February 9th, 2011. He also mentioned that GTTV will have more details on that this coming Friday, so stay tuned in for that. You know at this point I am not sure if I want to try Portal which does look awesome, or just see how they integrate Steam into the PS3. Enjoy the trailer from gamescom 2010:
Hmmm, so many things to ponder, go the hero route and be a savior, or become a villain and destroy? For those of you who haven’t decided there is still sometime to think about it. DC Universe Online releases the 2nd of November on the PC and PS3, but for now just watch the trailer:
