Although it’s being labelled as disappointing by many critics around the world, our very own Adam Dodd quite enjoyed Sega’s Alien: Colonial Marines. One of the aspects that he truly enjoyed was the music, which was composed by Kevin Riepl (Gears Of War, HENRi, Hunted: The Demon’s Forge). Taking inspiration from the original James Horner score but giving unique and original twists, it seems that the music is the one thing that most critics can agree upon being a shining point in the game.
And now Kevin Riepl has uploaded five tracks from the game’s score for your listening pleasure. Head on below to get your taste. READ MORE
Hunted wasn’t really on my radar until I realized that it was taking a fairly ambitious step for fantasy RPG games: it was attempting to take the action heavy co-op and cover system from Gears of War and implementing those features into a fantasy universe, filled with witches, demons and other geeky stuff. I enjoy fantasy RPG games, anyone who knows me is familiar with my incurable addictions to Diablo and Demon’s Souls, and I also thoroughly enjoy the Gears of War games, depute my inability to be anything other than awful at its multiplayer.
I love co-op games. I also, though I don’t play them much, love dungeon crawlers. Maybe I don’t play them because they usually seem to drag on especially when playing alone. But, in Hunted: The Demon’s Forge the game can be played completely in 2 player co-op mode. And the female protagonist archer, completely fits my usual choice of character in a video game. Girl. For whichever of my friends I choose to play with me, (chosen by a fight to the death for my love) is the male warrior protagonist.
The game is 3rd person and is said to have Gears Of War type cover and is very action oriented. Go on, I’m listening. It will also stick closely to its dungeon crawler roots and will be rich in secrets and treasure. A large world and tons of people to keep you busy with quests and side quests for hours and hours. Hunted: The Demon’s Forge is out now for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. Head past the break for screens and some more game features. READ MORE
According to TheHollywoodReporter former star of Xena: Warrior Princess will be voicing the evil Seraphine in the upcoming game Hunted: The Demon’s Forge. I myself had a crush on her sidekick Gabrielle (Renee O’Connor) back in the Xena days, but that’s getting off topic.
This will be Xena, er, I mean Lucy’s 1st step into the video game world, and she chose a game that definitely fits the familiar for her. “Hunted is an incredibly dark, intense game and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to work on such a thrilling project,” said Lawless. “After playing the heroine for so long it’s refreshing to portray such a villainous, seductive temptress!” READ MORE
If you haven’t already checked it out in the Music section of BD, the wonderous and magical Jonathan Barkan got a chance to interview one damn talented man Kevin Riepl. About what you ask? Well, the only 2 things that matter to most of you people, horror movies, and video games.
If you head past the break you can read the video games half of Jonathan’s interview. And if you head HERE you can read the 1st half. All about composing horror movies. It’s a worth while read, so READ IT! READ MORE
You know E3 is right around the corner when the Big Three come together to unveil some of their biggest announcements at their annual pre-E3 press conferences. The first of the three was Microsoft and in case you missed the event I’ve watched it all the way through, fifteen times (Ok, not really), scouring over every detail big and small, to make sure I could convey to you, dear reader, every tidbit of information gleaned from the conference.
Obviously Microsoft’s focus this year was going to be on showcasing the Xbox 360’s newest limb-flailing tech, the newly dubbed Kinect (previously Natal). It seems soon after we’ve all gotten used to Natal as a name we’ve been thrown something else that, for some of us, might take some time to warm up to. After the jump you’ll find Kinect’s launch date, info on its launch titles, details on upcoming Xbox 360 titles (Metal Gear Solid: Rising has watermelons!), and the long expected slimmed down 360 hardware.
