I know I haven’t been posting much lately because I’ve been busy but this is quick and this is good! Timeline trailer 5 was just released and talks about the events at the Battle of Bothawui.
also if you haven’t done it yet, don’t forget to sign up for the Beta on the BioWare official website.
It is time my friends!!
BioWare announced the opening of sign ups last night and as can be imagined the site completely crashed.
You need to go here to sign up but right now the process seems to still have a few issues, resetting before you are done signing up. It’s sure to be fixed soon though.
May the Force be with you!
BioWare release the new timeline trailer explaining the change of Empire’s change of strategy to hire several factions to their cause.
The spies are on the move, active, unseen and the plot thickens.
Blizzcon 2009 is going down this weekend but it seems Asia got the jump again. A website revealed (leaked?) the fourth class for Diablo III.
The Monk will follow the Barbarian, Witch Doctor and the Wizard and will feature hand to hand combat. The official announcement came with a trailer like for the Wizard class.
It might be just me but it’s the first time I’m disappointed by a Blizzard trailer… The flow is fine but for some reason the graphics look very old generation. The Wizard trailer was much much much better in my book.
In any case any Diablo III news is good news.
For the little history lesson Fallout was developed by Black Isle Studios and published by Interplay. Black Isle Studio closed and several years later Bethesda Softworks grabbed the rights of the series and developed a sequel, at least in spirit, in Fallout 3.
Interplay though still has the rights for the MMORPG Fallout Online (otherwise known as Project V13). Which they will loose on April 4th 2011. So time is of the essence and they have just released the first art for the game.
Not much too feed on so far but it looks nice.
Do SO Want! NOW!
A few months ago it was announced that the long delayed Alan Wake would only be coming to consoles. Fans of Remedy, whose games like Max Payne had always started on the PC were pretty annoyed and forums started heating up.
In a recent statement though the developer said that they would “love to see a PC version” and that “plans are open” but it apparently falls to MicroSoft to make the decision. Which mean it may not be coming for a little while since MS likes to give it’s 360 some time to grab a few dollars before releasing games in the piracy-prone PC.
In any case we’ll see how it develops and how the console version feels when it finally comes out.
Here’s the full statement:
“It is accurate that we are currently working exclusively on the Xbox 360 version of Alan Wake,” the statement reads. “PC plans are currently open, and therefore it’s safe to say that at least a simultaneous launch with the Xbox version will not happen at this late stage. Remedy has a deep heritage in PC gaming and would love to see a PC version available to its PC followers, ultimately however this decision lies with our publisher.”
LucasArts is hard at work on their old franchises lately. They are remaking The Secret of Monkey Island and today they announced that a number of their back catalog will be available on Steam.
The first wave will be on July 8 and include 10 titles most notably (for me) The Dig! Amazing adventure game with an amazing ambiance and an amazing soundtrack. It is amazing.
The developers have confirmed that more games will be available in the future. No price has been announced yet.
Here is the list for the first wave:
Armed and Dangerous
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure
Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
Star Wars Battlefront II
Star Wars Republic Commando
Star Wars Starfighter
Thrillville: Off the Rails
