Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 being worked on, $200m to make

Anthony Garreffa | Wed, May 4 2011 12:42 AM CDT
We all knew this was coming but waiting for 100-percent confirmation is hard and now we're seeing a leak from a voice actor for the current two Modern Warfare titles, Craig Fairbrass. He did an interview with a UK radio station talkSPORT. Craig does the voice of Ghost and Gaz and has let slip that he's currently working on a big game that is costing $200 million to make.

That rounds it down to, well, just one title. Craig said during his interview:

I did Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as Gaz and then I did Ghost in Modern Warfare 2, which has become one of the most iconic figures in the history of computer games, which is great. And I've just been out in LA doing something that's going to be announced in May...I've just been out there doing some bits and pieces and one of it's to do with...I can't say too much.

Portal 2 Gameplay + Insane Cube Tricks

Trak Lord | Mon, May 2 2011 3:38 PM CDT
Well I'll be damned. This was more enjoyable that most of those crazy trick shot videos you see on YouTube all the time. In my opinion, that's because this stuff would be harder to fake (I know that seems counter-intuitive, but just think about it for a second). For all of you that haven't gotten the chance to try out Valve's new installation of the puzzle-solving, viusally-mesmerizing Portal franchise, then this video is a great way to get hooked.



YouTube user Schrobotindisguise posted this video after he, well, got bored (note: this is a very rare occurrence and I cannot even fathom the amount of time one would need to play Portal 2 before actually getting bored. This dude must be a pro. With a lot of spare time):

While i'm waiting for the inevitable challenge chambers and leaderboards, i thought i'd set my own challenges to increase the re-playability of Portal 2......turns out chucking cubes about was sufficient!



As you can see in the video, Schrobot has found a very inventive way of solving the Portal 2 puzzles, trying to ensure that each time he uses one of the stock cubes in the game. Also, don't forget about this summer's DLC, mentioned above!

Marvel Announces MMO In The Works: Excelsior!

Trak Lord | Fri, Apr 29 2011 4:52 PM CDT
Due most likely to popularity of MMO's like DC Universe and Marvel's own Superhero Squad Online, Marvel and Gazillion Entertainment are banding together to provide what will most likely be an insanely entertaining MMORPG.

From Gazillion's website:

Marvel Announces MMO In The Works: Excelsior! | TweakTown.com


Smash frost giants with Thor's Hammer. Unbalance Ultron by slinging Captain America's shield. Explore a remote and hostile jungle as Storm.

Leave behind your everyday life and live as a renowned Marvel Super Hero including all of his or her abilities. Become powerful, famous, well-respected, feared by evil-doers, and relied upon by the citizens of a grateful, persistent online world.



Gazillion is already responsible for Marvel Superhero Squad, an online game marketed toward younger gamers and fans of the comic books. Marvel Universe, however, will be more along the lines of traditional, mature online gaming experiences. And unlike its main competition, DC Universe, players will be playing not as custom-created original superheroes, but the Marvel Comics characters themselves. Playable characters already announced include Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Spiderman, Wolverine and Nova, but according to IGN, the game will launch with more playable Marvel characters than any other game in the history of Marvel video games.

Depth - a multiplayer game of Shark versus Diver - yes you read that right!

Anthony Garreffa | Thu, Apr 28 2011 8:00 AM CDT
Well, isn't this an amazing find. A non-typical, original game that isn't a COD-clone. "Depth" is a game where you can choose to be the Predator or Thief. As the Predator, you're a 21-foot man-eating shark and your objective is to find and dismember divers. You get "Shark vision" which lets you experience the sights, sounds and smells of the shark's world. Track prey by the disturbances they make in the water or by the sound of their own heartbeat! As the Shark you have the ability of full-body dismemberment, tear off your victim's limbs one by one and let him bleed to death or take him out with the final bite.



As a "Thief" you obviously play a human diver and your objective is to loot wealth in the form of sunken booty on the ocean floor - the only way to do this is to outsmart the 21-foot Shark enemies that are hunting you. Take cover in dense sea-weed, wrecks or stay as quiet as possible while the Shark's are hunting for you.

R18+ Classification in Australia, SA Attorney-General John Rau backs the new games rating

Anthony Garreffa | Wed, Apr 27 2011 10:34 PM CDT
A new classifications system for computer games that will "increase protection for children and provide parents with clearer guidance" will be supported by the State Government. Attorney-General John Rau has said today that he supports the Federal Government's national push to create an R18+ classification for games but he would abolish the MA15+ classification in SA.

PopCap's Plants Vs. Zombies Hits Nintendo DS

Trak Lord | Wed, Apr 27 2011 7:14 PM CDT
Not a huge story, but if you've ever played this game you know how awesome it is. PopCap, makers of games like the insanely addictive office favorite BeJeweled, have released their highly successful and original title Plants Vs. Zombies for the Nintendo's handheld.

PopCap's Plants Vs. Zombies Hits Nintendo DS | TweakTown.com


Basically, zombies are trying to attack your house. Whether it's your front door, your backyard (in which you somehow install a pool halfway through the zombie apocalypse), or your roof, the zombies are out to get you. And they'll attach you day, night, even when it's very foggy and visibility conditions are terrible. Especially when visibility is terrible, come to think of it. And they're in wetsuits, dressed like Michael Jackson from Thriller, riding zambonis and bobsleds, and totally out to eat your brains. The only thing standing between you and them is an arsenal of anthropomorphic plants ready to stop them, literally, in their tracks. From IGN's screenshots, it looks as though the DS version even gets some new levels.

Mario & Sonic Team Up For The 2012 Olympics

Trak Lord | Mon, Apr 25 2011 11:26 PM CDT
I guess Sonic would be a sure thing for the 100m dash. Or you know, any running event. I guess Mario could high jump? The upcoming 2012 London Olympics will welcome the reuniting two of retro and modern gamers' favorite iconic mascots, Nintendo's Mario and SEGA's Sonic the Hedgehog. These two don't generally play together (miles and miles of red tape), but the Olympics (for some reason) means they're going to be hanging out.

Their suite of special games will be hitting the Wii (probably the Wii 2/Stream/Project Cafe by that point, no?) and the 3DS, so stay posted for more news on this.

Also, do you think the Sonic games will have Olympic rings everywhere? Just a thought.


TOKYO (April 21, 2011) - SEGA Corporation and Nintendo Co., Ltd. today announced that the record breaking partnership of Mario and Sonic will once again join forces on the Wii home video game system and, for the first time ever, on the Nintendo 3DS . Over 19 million people worldwide have bought video games from the Mario and Sonic series, and now the much loved duo are heading to London to participate in the officially licensed Olympic-themed video game, Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games.A host of exciting new headline events, including soccer and equestrian will debut on the Wii version appearing alongside classic Olympic disciplines, such as athletics, aquatics and table tennis. These new sports are sure to ignite even more fierce...

Nintendo's next-gen console codenamed Project Cafe, faster than the PS3, will look like a modernized SNES

Anthony Garreffa | Sun, Apr 24 2011 1:12 AM CDT
Nintendo's next-gen console codenamed Project Cafe, aka Wii 2 has had some leaked details, estimated pricing, release dates, console design, processing architecture and of course, the name. According to people close to the project, Nintendo's next-gen console should have a retail price of between $350 and $400 and will ship from Taiwanese manufacturer, Foxconn in October of this year.

Things of course could change at any time and Nintendo could choose to delay the release until 2012 to build a mammoth supply of the consoles so there would be no stock restrictions for salivating customers wanting a new Nintendo-branded console. The console is set to be powered by AMD's R700 GPU architecture which should throw some seriously large punches at the NVIDIA 7800GTX-based processor in the PlayStation 3.
