They said it could never be filmed. But now Watchmen is about to become not only a film, but a game too. This download-only fight-fest is an episodic prequel to the forthcoming movie, don’t you know. Len Wein, editor of the original Watchmen comic, wrote the story.
Episode 1: Neal McDonough. Is he really excited about the launch of Street Fighter IV or is he pretending? Let the computer decide!
If you didn’t know, our Resident Evil 5 documentary airs this weekend in the UK.
It contains new interviews with the Rezzie 5 development team, gameplay from new levels and new game features, which, I think you’ll agree, is quite a lot of new!
UK viewers can catch it at 11.00am Sunday 1st March on Bravo.
For impatient types, here’s a taster.
The strategy genre is going through a purple patch! First Halo Wars sucked us in, then along comes this sequel.
See why Battlestations: Pacific deserves to be played by more than just RTS-heads in our full video preview.
There aren’t many games that make a big play for humour and succeed. Last year’s The Simpsons Game did it by making video games the target for the jokes. Eat Lead tries a similar trick, but without Matt Groening and his team to do the writing stuff, can it pull it off? Maybe, just maybe!
The star of the game is Matt Hazard a washed up video game hero attempting to do a Mickey Rourke and hit the big time once more. It helps that he has a very neat line in sarcasm.
One of the highlights of Beneath The Ashes, the first downloadable content pack for Tomb Raider: Underworld, undoubtedly comes when Lara slips in to something a little more comfortable. Notably a tiny gold bikini. I dread to think what actions this has prompted in bedrooms around the world!
Fans of great games will be glad to know we’ve produced a half-hour special dedicated to Capcom’s soon to be released fright-fest Resident Evil 5.
Although Rezzie 5 is an evolution not a revolution from Rezzie 4, it’s still likely to be one of the highlights of 2009, boasting new co-op play, online modes and vehicle sections. We’ve played it a lot and can confirm the hype is justified.
The programme will features never-before seen levels, walkthroughs as well as interviews with the production team and Capcom staff…and it’ll end with Playr’s very own specially created Resident Evil 5 trailer, which we’re quite proud of.
In the UK, catch it 11.00am Sunday 1st March on Bravo.
For those who can’t wait, we’ve got a short excerpt for you here.
