TGS: Day 2
More and more revealed in Tokyo yesterday… let’s catch up on TGS: Day 2
Along with what Joe posted, there was more Metal Gear at TGS, in the form of the 3DS version of MGS3: Snake Eater. Video of this wouldn’t really do that well… you know, that whole pesky 3D thing and all… so here is a link with an article and some screenshots.
Metal Gear 3DS
An update to another of Joe’s posts… LittleBigMegaM…. oh… *shuffles papers* Mega Man Universe. Basically is is create-a-megaman. Personally, I’m a longtime fan of the series (the older stuff, not that “Legends” and “Battle Network” stuff they tried for a few years there,) and I think this is a great idea. Here are a few videos explaining it a little more.
Microsoft Kinect… OK, so most of you still aren’t on board with it. I can understand, they haven’t really shown off much for the hardcore gamers out there. I have played it, I thought it was “neat.” I plan on getting one anyway, so it doesn’t really matter to me. But MS is making sure gamers know about it now.
Haunt, a puzzle type game for Kinect. It is being developed by the Masaya Matsuura, creator of PSX classic PaRappa the Rapper. Here is a link to a cam video on GameTrailers… Just a teaser, nothing great yet. I couldn’t find a video online I could imbed yet… working on that.
Sticking to the “Horror” theme, comes Rise of Nightmares for Kinect by Sega.
Project Draco, for Kinect… I’m picturing a lot of gamers with tired arms attempting to play this…
Suda 51 has another game in the works (yesterday’s EA Demon-Slasher thing being another,) this one a Kinect game. Codename D. Not too sure what to think about this one…
And now for the Main Event… Holy Crap. I did not see this coming, and I’m not quite sure the world isn’t just messing with me on this one…
Steel Battalion is back! WTF! OK, minor history lessen for those of you who don’t know about Steel Battalion. It was this mech-based shooter that came out in 2002 for the Xbox. It had a “special controller” that came with it. That controller happened to be a 40 button mech interface (see pic if you don’t believe me, trust me, it’s real… a buddy of mine has it, I’ve played it.) Due to the controller, the game cost $250. I’ll let that sink in for a sec. $250. One game. You would think they would release a franchise off of this, all using that controller… nope. There was one sequel, and it was online only. Back then, Xbox LIVE wasn’t as popular as it is now, so it didn’t last long. Well, now Steel Battalion is back, for Kinect. I can’t freaking WAIT to see how this one plays out…
OK… honestly, there is more… but I have to go to work. Joe, take over if you can please.
