Could we finally be getting a third game in the Outbreak series? No confirmation yet but the French issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine is using promo art from the original Resident Evil: Outbreak on their cover. I sincerely hope this is the case. As an example of good timing it just so happens that Resident Evil’s 15th anniversary is coming up on March 22nd and that would be a perfect time to unveil such a long anticipated sequel.
Back in November we reported on SOCOM developer Slant Six’s supposed involvement with a multiplayer centric Resident Evil game codenamed Resident Evil: Raccoon City. And in case you were wondering, the big bold text on the cover translates to Guaranteed Chills! So is a chilling new Outbreak game something you’d like to see or is this a series that shouldn’t get reanimated? READ MORE
A few days ago there was a rumbling of a Dead Island movie in the works but it would seem that report was a little premature. According to the game’s Facebook page they’re still considering a Dead Island film but they haven’t signed with anyone yet as a “high-quality movie is the #1 thing we’re concerned about for a film adaptation.”
When it comes to bad video game films Hollywood’s batting a thousand so it’s reassuring to see a studio taking a potential film adaptation of their IP seriously. I don’t think I could sit through another Hitman, Bloodrayne, House of the Dead, Max Payne, Doom, Street Fighter, Wing Commander, Alone in the Dark, gasp, Far Cry, Mortal Kombat 2 (the first didn’t entirely suck), Laura Croft or Prince of Persia again. Yeah, I know I skipped Resident Evil and Silent Hill but Milla Jovovich can do no wrong and I actually enjoyed the latter. READ MORE
What you’ll see in the video below is a team-up I wouldn’t have predicted. In it the Joker and Batman partner up to fight a handful of criminals, but is this a leaked trailer or just another fan-made mod? If it’s the latter I doubt this is a taste of what’s to come in the campaign, instead I’m thinking this could possibly be our first glimpse at the game’s Challenge Rooms. But again, that’s merely speculation.
The only reason I can think of for these two guys to ever work together is if the Joker is a playable character in Arkham City’s Challenge Room mode. Wouldn’t that be exciting? Cooperative survival against waves of enemies and going by the video there are combo attacks to reward teamwork. What do you think this is?
Update: Embedding the video seems to have been disabled so if you haven’t seen it yet and would like to you can watch it here.READ MORE
A rather sweet rumor has reared it’s beautiful head recently. Apparently, Telltale Games (the guys behind Sam & Max, the more recent Back to the Future episodic series as well as the upcoming Jurassic Park game) are hard at work on a video game adaptation of the incredible Walking Dead TV series. If this is true I might just have myself a sensual nerdgasm.
Telltale makes some great adventure games and it’s my belief that there can never be too many zombie games so the thought of a game (or possibly, series of games like the Back to the Future series) based on arguably the best undead themed anything in recent memory is rather exciting. READ MORE
Through a little detective work Gamerzines looks to have uncovered a game waiting to be revealed at Spike’s VGAs next month. Somehow they noticed a similarity between the zombies shown in the teaser for the awards and the undead silhouettes on one of Capcom’s Resident Evil t-shirts.
Is it true? We won’t know for a few weeks but unless there’s a shortage of zombie silhouettes on the Internet the evidence is pretty solid. Check out exactly what they found and what game could be waiting to be unveiled, after the jump. READ MORE
If a brand new wanted ad from Blizzard looking for a lead designer, lead programmer and senior producer for its Diablo 3 team based here in the states is anything to go by, there might just be some hope for a console version of Diablo 3. Blizzard has said in the past, adamantly one might add, that they are first and foremost a PC and Mac centric developer (with an emphasis on the former), and that’s the reason their recent titles like World of WarCraft and StarCraft 2 haven’t seen any console ports. With the Diablo franchise however, things might change.
As I said these positions are for Blizzard’s US-based Diablo 3 team and in their ad they said, regarding a console-based Diablo game, that “with proper care the gameplay could suit the console platform, and we’re interested in seeing what talent out there might be interested in such a project.” This is all very exciting but should in no way be considered a confirmation of a long requested Blizzard title on home consoles. I haven’t had that scratch itched since StarCraft released on the N64 a decade ago so the thought of a Diablo game on my Xbox 360 (or PS3) is damn thrilling. Hit the jump for the full post, in all it’s rumor-rousing glory. READ MORE
