In my bumblings around the internet I found this, so have done a little research. This is a showcase of Square Enix’s ‘Lumionous Engine’ which was created for “next generation quality games”. The video shown is supposedly real time rather than pre-rendered which if true is very exciting, I also wonder if by ‘next generation’ Square means consoles or simply game quality over the next year or so?
I understand that this was shown at E3 but frankly I missed it, even when trawling through various E3 trailers, so this post is just incase any of you guys missed it too! Check out the video after the jump.
Here’s a gameplay trailer for the Tomb Raider reboot coming March 5th, 2013. I personally loved the older games and can’t wait to play this one!
A young Lara Croft has already proven herself to be a survivor, but one on the cusp of an extraordinary adventure. Caught in the clutches of an enigmatic island, Lara is captured by hostile natives and faced with a traumatic and character-defining decision. On this island, forces beyond her control leave Lara little alternative but to ruthlessly fight for her life.
Two years ago, many gamers were deceived by the long-awaited Final Fantasy XIII. While not being singularly bad, it did not meet gamers’ high expectations for having a below-average story, and for being way too linear. I agree with those points: I initially stopped playing the game at around 2/3rd through. I finally managed to complete the game a few months later when a friend told me the end was worth seeing.
Now, back in January 2011, a sequel was announced: Final Fantasy XIII-2. Is this game any better than the original FFXIII ? Without hesitation, YES, this game is WAY better than the first one!
Based on Nathan Jurevicius’ Scarygirl graphic novel – winner of the 2009 Aurealis Award for Best Illustrated Book/Graphic novel – Scarygirl presents a wondrous adventure into a distinctive and beautifully bizarre world. The titular character Scarygirl is an abandoned child with a tentacle arm who dresses like a pirate, and is haunted by a strange man in her dreams. She sets out into the world to discover the meaning behind her bad dreams, but Scarygirl is hardly helpless, as she has a tentacle-powered arsenal up her sleeve.
During her adventure, Scarygirl will be aided by her friends and guardians from the graphic novel, Blister the giant octopus and Bunniguru the mystical, kung-fu rabbit. Her friends and an ever-improving arsenal of combat moves will help her face down enemies like the adorably deadly hedgehogs of the Owl Woods, the violent Goat Clan along the Old Man Mountains, Hairclump spiders deep in the Stinky Swamp, and the most enemiest enemies of all: the clueless crossing guards around Bad Town!
