I can’t keep up with Blogs can I?

Yeah…  sorry about the week hiatus. Trying to keep up with the damn blog and keep getting busy or procrastinate! So… What have my readers missed out on…

New Batman Arkham game

Oh… boy, looks like I’m going to avoid this game like the plague. Surprisingly though it’s not being developed by Rocksteady, rather it’s being done by Warner Bros. RockSteady have mentioned that some of their staff are working with Warner Bros to help out with the development. But I already know that this game with have another anticlimactic ending like the other two…  So moving on…

Another Disney Game HD Remake!?

Oh you betcha! This time Disney has teamed up with Sega to recreate Castle of Illusion for Current generation consoles. I hope this turns out to be as good as the original. Though to be honest looking at the pictures they do look a little bit “too different” unlike the faithful looking Duck Tails.

That XCom game getting re-branded!

Yeah, remember a while back when 2K Marin announced a First Person XCom game based in 1950s America? Well if you haven’t noticed the game’s been delayed many, many times… Not to mention the unless amount of XCom fans hating the game’s FPS gameplay. But it was announced that the game’s going to be re-branded as “The Bureau”, and it’ll now have nothing to do with the XCom franchise. Personally I think that’s a shame, I loved the video they showed back in 2010 with it’s fifties Americana style. I mean come on! When’s the last time you played an FPS set in fifties American suburbia!? At least the game have some life left in it, even if the game might not be a part of the XCom franchise any more.

Star Fox Art Book available to look at online?!

Back in the nineties, Nintendo released an awesome art book-stroke-manga on Star Fox. Drawn by Star Fox’s original artist, Benimaru Itoh, it’s an awesome book that features a Manga Comic, and graphic illustrations for Arwings and many other vehicles in the game. The catch was back then it was only released in Japan, and only in short print. Website GlitterBerri has a translation of the Manga portion of the book here. Whilst the whole book can be seen, but in Japanese, at StarFox-online.

Guns of Icarus Online Expansion on Kickstarter!?

Whoo…  I think that’s about it for today! Though I will end this blog with mentioning that my favourite online game; Guns of Icarus Online, is getting a Kickstarter for it’s “Adventure Mode” expansion pack that puts an MMORPG element into the team based Air ship game. The Kickstarter has already beaten it’s first goal of $60K, and it will soon beat it’s new target of $100K! So if you want to add adventure to your Guns of Icarus Online game, go and help them out with a $30 pledge! 🙂
