Sony's H1Z1 is meant to "scare you" 1

By Logan Blosser RSS posted May 05 2014 at 1:30PM

Earlier this month, Sony announced thier upcoming PC Zombie F2P MMO, H1Z1, a game iwht a day/night cycle, dynamic weather, crafting, and a destructible world. According to SOE president John Smedley, the goal of the game is to scare you. 

"If you watch Walking Dead, you will be right at home in terms of the kind of zombies we have and the atmosphere we're trying to create," Smedley told GameSpot. "We want you to be afraid of the zombies and of other players."=

Smedley said that the zombies will be "Unpredictable" in thier attempt to be scary, with dynamic choices and actions being made by each humanoid monster and the dynamic world working with those choices to create the frightening Post-apocalyptic environment. 

In the same interview, the topic of thier rival game, DayZ, came up, and Smedley responded that, "It's definitely fair to say that DayZ is inspiration for it, absolutely. And, I'll be honest, there's a lot of other games... (Read More)

LEGO Minifigures Online - Beta signups open. 0

By Logan Blosser RSS posted May 05 2014 at 11:59AM

We've had plenty of proprietary LEGO minifigure games, like LEGO Batman and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. We've even had an entire movie based around the LEGO universe. So what could possibly be in store for the LEGO gaming franchise now? LEGO Minifigures Online is our answer. 

Minifigures online is a MMO in which you play as the various generic minifigures of the LEGO series (no Batman, sorry.) and explore various lands, from Pirate Land to Space Land. You collect stars by destroying objects and enemies to level up your powers - which fit into classical MMO roles like Defender (Tank) and Striker (DPS), although with a new twist: The Builder type, who can build scattered LEGO pieces into useful objects much faster and without interruption. Careful use of abilities and roles will apparently be nessecary for those playing to succeed in the big bad world of LEGO Minifigures Online.

With a cast like the Heroic Knight and the Revolutionary Soldier to the DJ and the... (Read More)

Disney Infinity 2.0: Now with more superheroes! 0

By Logan Blosser RSS posted May 05 2014 at 11:24AM

Disney Inifinity was an enormous success - the power to create thier own worlds with content from thier favorite disney pieces, explore stories written for each of the characters, and generally fool around and play how they wanted was an amazing concept. It came with the added profit of having figures and expansion packs sold seperately, so expanding past the main game took some money and allowed for the success of the games (much the route of Skylanders). 

Now, Disney has announced a new version of the game for PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, Pc, and iOS, called Disney Infinty 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes. The game will feature more than 20 new figures from the marvel universe. The ones we managed to catch in the trailer were: 

  • Iron Man
  • Hulk
  • Thor
  • Nick Fury
  • Captain America
  • Hawkeye
  • Black Widow
  • Loki (with a horde of Frost Giants)
  • M.O.D.O.K.
  • Spiderman

Warcraft movie to finish shooting in a couple weeks 0

By Logan Blosser RSS posted May 05 2014 at 9:03AM

The Warcraft movie has been long awaited and long teased, but is finally very close to finishing its filming, according to it's director Duncan Jones, the director behind Moon and Source Code. Filming began earlier this year, and now, according to Duncan Jones's twitter: "For those counting down with me, we're done shooting Warcraft in three weeks as of tomorrow! Holy shnikey…" 

Obviously, for something like Warcraft, there is still the matter of the heavy CG elements required, for instance the Orcs themselves, but that is expected to be done in time for the early 2016 date. The CG is being done by Star Wars effects studio Industrial Light & Magic. 

We've seen very few images or concept arts from the movie, so far. We do have to wait slightly longer than originally expected, as it was scheduled for December 18, 2015, but that was confirmed for the Star Wars VII release date and... (Read More)

Mousecraft: Puzzling your way to the cheese 0

By Logan Blosser RSS posted May 05 2014 at 8:47AM

Soon to come to a number of systems, the puzzle game Mousetrap by independent developer Crunching Koalas has gotten a little bit of attention on greenlight and has only kept getting more eyes on it. It's to come out on July 8 for PS4, PS3, Vita, PC, Mac, and Linux, on the PS Store and Steam respectively. 

What's so interesting about the game? Well, you play a scientist trying to guide mice through a diabotical maze. The mice will keep moving towards the cheese, and it's up to you to place tetris-like blocks and other devices to clear thier path. You have to get a certain number of mice to the end of the course or else you fail! This is alot more challenging than it seems, as the mice will not wait for you- they want that cheese! The challenge for the main story crosses 80 levels and promises 6-8 hours of gameplay. 

That doesn't mean you'll play for 6-8 hours and then be done, however. One of the biggest offerings of Mousecraft is the level editor system,... (Read More)

Build & Defend: A Tale of Survival 0

By Logan Blosser RSS posted Mar 31 2014 at 10:08AM

We've seen alot of survival games since the rise of Minecraft. Don't Starve, Terraria, and Rust all have thier own elements that make them stand apart in this bursting genre of mainly jsut minecraft clones, things that don't add anything new. Everyone is trying to get in on it. However, this recent game, now availalbe to purchase into the beta, definitly adds something different. It is called Build & Defend: A Tale of Survival. Like Don't Starve or Minecraft, enemies spawn at night - yet in this game they actively come looking for you, no matter where you are, and can easily overrrun unprepared defenses. 

There is also the fact that it is set up to create a challege every day, unlike games like minecraft, where the mobs pose little danger once you get set up. In this game, however, the challenge you face each night is greater and greater. More and more strong enemies will come to knock down your defenses. Also, any livestock that they happen to attack will turn into... (Read More)

Orion's Gold - get as much as you can! 0

By Logan Blosser RSS posted Mar 28 2014 at 10:09AM

Global Game Jam 2013 gave life to a little game known as RestLess, where you had to control your emotions using inner balance while avoiding outside distractions. digiKhel, the name of the people behind the game, have since turned it to a space-themed game known as Orion's Gold. 

In Orion's Gold, you play as a mining ship that appears in the middle of four portals. In these four portals are asteriods that appear from time to time, and are either hot or cold (so ore coming back affects temperature as such) and are sometimes unstable, which means not mining them completely will cause them to explode and throw off your temperature. Keeping a temperature balance is important, but the only control you have directly is moving little energy orbs to the four portals to direct your mining drones. It's very fast paced, as are the missions and upgrade screens that pop up. You have to be quick and efficent if you want to survive in this sitution.

The goal is merely to... (Read More)

Twitch-inspired Choice Chamber goes on Kickstarter 0

By Logan Blosser RSS posted Mar 28 2014 at 9:05AM

Recently, a stream appeared on twitch called "TwitchPlaysPokemon." This stream had a simple concept, and yet exploded in popularity. Every user got to enter commands that would be added into the emulator - and it turned out that 100,000 people playing Pokemon Red at once could defeat it, even if it took them days longer than a normal run. The novel concept of people cooperatively controlling one character was, well, novel. Noone had done it before, and the chaos turned out to be amazingly fun.

So, someone finally decided to fully integrate this into a game, as the core mechanic. Enter Studio Bean, a three team studio that was the creative mind behind BasketBelle and Soundodger. They have created a prototype for a twitch-enabled game called Choice Chamber, which has a single player platforming through procedurally generated rooms and fighting baddies. On the side of the bar, voting pops up for upgrades, weapon choices, summoning of gizmos, and various other aspects of the... (Read More)
