And it’s looking good. Now that Wasteland 2 is out, hopefully we’ll be seeing more of Tides of Numenera. They definitely nailed the crazy, magicy-science Planescape feel. Those conversation trees are in full bloom as well.
Phillip Raupach did an awesome job of replacing all the sounds in this Matrix scene with 8-bit sounds from old school video games. It’s definitely Nintendo era, I hear some Mario Bros in there.
Far Cry 4 is coming. Now we have some videos to check out. I’m digging the new mountain setting that adds a whole vertical element to the game. Thankfully, they added a grappling hook so you can’t get stuck trying to go up where you think you can go up. This pissed me off in Far Cry 3, especially when being chased by a bunch of guys armed with assault rifles. Elephants are the new tigers. Except they’re bigger..and badder and clear entire camps. Vehicles are all the more fun with drive-and-shoot and driving takedown abilities so you’re no longer a restricted to just driving while driving. Looking damn good.
Check out the vids.
It’s about time.
Ever wonder what Grand Theft Auto V would look like on a Commodore 64? Here ya go. MajamiHiroz has some of today’s games realized in the old school goodness. Good show man.
Check out InXile’s live action intro for Wasteland 2. You don’t see much live action stuff nowadays. Too bad about Ace, he was a good man.
Ubisoft has announced Far Cry 4 coming this November. Damn, I didn’t even finish Far Cry 3 yet. Above is one of the first images. This time you’re in the Himalayas facing a “despotic self-appointed king” who happens to look like a Swedish swinger. I betcha he has a German accent.
I’m sure Ubisoft will be releasing more info soon on their blog.
Here’s a trippy, seizure-inducing nod to the Flappy bird trend. Ridiculous Glitching — the name sums it up — takes some liberties with Pac-Man graphics and throws in chiptune-y techno. There’s only one control while you dodge mustached ghosts and grab cherries. It’s simple but damn addicting. I got a score of 14…some crazy bastard has the high score of 206.
If Pulp Fiction was a NES game…
Well done CineFix.
