I know its a pretty lame segway/title, anyhoo there’s been a fair few interesting game tech news in the feeds i follow lately, and none of them really fleshed out a post so i’ going to do a quick fire snapshot of a few things this week. Its a little late due to losing the draft grrr.
So even quicker than before, gears of war board game? yeah its for reals, at least state side according to amazon.com. its a multiplayer cooperative board game, that doesn’t sound like fun really, don’t you think?
Driver san fransisco has A) been put back to the 6th september in the states, but we get it on the 2nd according to Amazon.co.uk. However they are pushing their DRM with this, this means you must be online to play it. If you lose connection it will wait for you to reconnect before continuing, thats nice, ubisoft, you could of been cool, but instead you are being gay. You’ll be as bas as EA next. Yeah we think they suck too.
Minecraft has a new mob in the works, titled Enderman, skinny creepy thing that you should not look directly at, from all the things notch has been saying this little fella sounds very interesting in what it does.
Playstation vita has 10X more ram than the psp, it may be released as early as the end of october according to one source that could very well be fake so don’t hold your breath just yet.
The 3ds is about to get a price drop, and so to not upset early adopters, they get 10 free nes games and 10 free gameboy games down-loadable from the eshop when they are released, all they have to do is log into the eshop from their 3ds before the 12th August, this will entitle them to be an ambassador and to receive these games earlier than regular folk and for nothing, the line up include Super Mario Bros.™, Donkey Kong Jr.™, Balloon Fight™, Ice Climber™ and The Legend of Zelda™ on the NES, and the Gameboy is expecting Yoshi’s Island™: Super Mario™ Advance 3, Mario Kart™: Super Circuit, Metroid™ Fusion, WarioWare™, Inc.: Minigame Mania and Mario vs. Donkey Kong™. Some of these games will eventually be updated to play online too.
Dan is no longer in the final line up for sf x tekken. shame
in tech news there’s also a possibility that Europe will get a windows phone 7 phone with a lide out qwerty, just what i’ve been waiting for, there’s still some mystery surrounding this, but the rumour mill is turning.
There was more but i’ve lost my notes due to windows not sleeping and running out of power 🙁
