Alan Wake DLC Gameplay Preview June 15, 2010

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

Here’s a gameplay teaser for the upcoming DLC for Alan Wake, titled “The Signal”

Without spoiling anything, the gameplay reminds me a lot of a cross between regular combat with the game, and the gameplay at the end.  This certainly must have something to do with the ending, and I’m glad to see the DLC is addressing the ending up front instead of making gamers wait for the sequel.

The Signal, the first Alan Wake DLC will be free to all owners of new retail copies of the game on July 17th, redeemable with the included code.  Alan Wake is only on Xbox 360.

inFAMOUS 2 E3 2010 Trailer June 15, 2010

I make it no secret I was a big fan of last year’s inFAMOUS for the PS3.  It was a lot of fun to play around in an urban jungle as a realistic super hero.

For the sequel, from the looks of it they’re going a complete 180.  They’re trading steel and glass buildings for bricks and bayou.  The main character’s been redesigned, and he’s got a whole lot of new moves.  I’m really excited to see this one.

inFAMOUS 2 is coming to the PS3.

I found a much better version of the Portal 2 demonstration and updated the site accordingly for those who think it looks differently.  I’m also working as best as I can to pull the videos that currently feature advertising (*cough* G4’s) and replace them as soon as possible, you shouldn’t have to deal with watching ads for much longer.

Sorcery, The Reason to Buy a Playstation Move June 15, 2010

We all would have to agree that a Playstation Move (or Microsoft Kinect) by itself is not a reason to buy one, regardless of price.  It’s going to need a killer app in order to sell.  Could this game be it?

Announced today, Sorcery for the Playstation Move, a platformer that transforms your Move controller into a Magic wand, enabling you to cast arcane magic to save a medieval world from darkness.

Sorcery will be coming exclusive to the Playstation 3.

In a bit of missed news today, I neglected to remind all of you that today is the first day you can preorder the iPhone 4 at your local Apple Store or AT&T owned store.  Preorders officially started at the beginning of the business day, which for AT&T is 9AM.

The iPhone 4 will be released on June 24th.

Bioware has just announced on the first day of E3 that everyone who plays Star Wars: The Old Republic will get their own star ship to fight their way through the galaxy.

The starship will be very much like Knights of the Old Republic’s Ebon Hawk and it will very much be like a hub where you can interact with your friends and your crew members in between missions.

I’m Trying to Upload Videos June 15, 2010

I’m trying my best to scoop most of the major game news organizations by scooping them with the news from the E3 confrence before they can post them up themselves.  Because of that, I’m posting up the news as soon as I can, and if the videos are unavalible to go along with the news, I can either dig it up from an unofficial source, or wait for someone to post them up (EA’s pretty good about posting their YouTube videos, but they’re just not being timely).

I’ve chosen to post the news first when made, and post up the game’s trailer when it becomes avalible on YouTube.  That means that while at first in some cases you might not see a game trailer with a news post, just wait a while and I’ll probably have one up later.

Keep checking this site for the latest in E3 news, posted before all the other guys can finish twiddling their thumbs.

I’ve currently updated my videos from my BulletStorm preview and my Crysis 2 preview, so recheck those posts for some thing you hadn’t seen before.

Valve’s Suprise: Portal 2 on PS3 June 15, 2010

Gabe Newell of Valve Software took the stage at the Sony E3 Press Conference and announced that Portal 2 will be released on the Playstation 3, and will support Steam Cloud and Steamworks, making, as he claims, the Playstation version of Portal 2, the definitive console version of the game.

The game’s graphics look phenomenal, an overgrown lush enviroment is taking over the original test chambers, and Chell will have to navigate through them in order to survive as GLaDOS rebuilds herself.

Portal 2 is coming to PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 in 2011.

Sony Announces Dead Space 2 PS3 Will Include Dead Space Extraction for Move June 15, 2010

During the Dead Space 2 Demo at Sony’s E3 Showcase, Sony announced that all copies of the PS3 version of Dead Space 2 will include an HD version of Dead Space Extraction specicially designed for Playstation Move.

It’s nice that gamers are being offered extra value for their dollar these days, and Sony’s showing that they’re in a habit of getting superior versions of games by offering free exclusive content (like Playable Joker Levels in Batman: Arkham Asylum) and special editions (like with Dante’s Inferno).

Hey, I honestly don’t mind buying PS3 versions of games, my Xbox 360 predates HDMI.

Dead Space 2 is coming Multiplatform January 25th, 2011.

Sony Announces Playstation Plus June 15, 2010

Sony has announced at their confrence that they will be activating the Playstation Plus paid service on top of the current Playsation Network later this month.  It will cost $49.99 a year, and will consist of getting early access to demos, betas, Playstation Core, and full PSN and Playstation 1 Classics.

Sony will be offering a free three month subscription to give current PS3 owners a taste of the system.  However, the problem I see with this is that while you’ll have early access to demos and betas, all the “free” content you get with the service (like Wipeout HD, which will be a free launch title for Plus users) will only be accessable while you’re a user.  It would likely be cheaper just to buy a copy of Wipeout HD for 20 dollars and own it forever, than pay hundreds of dollars for several years just to keep playing it.
