Middle Earth - Shadow of Mordor Launch Trailer

The title says it all. The launch trailer for the upcoming amazingness that is Shadow of Mordor. The game that’s set between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books/movies.

It is promised to be an absolute pants-destroyer, regardless of the fact whether you’re a LotR fan or not.

Rise of the Tomb Raider

Well, more like: The Fall Flat On Her Face Tomb Raider…

Crystal Dynamics announced today at games com that yes, they already released about 4 editions of the Tomb Raider reboot so now they don’t need more money. At least not from the fans. Why?

Rise of the Tomb Raider goes Xbox exclusive!

Seriously, if Lara Croft wouldn’t just be able to do all that cool stuff and dodge bullets and arrows, I am sure that she would make quite a serious dent on her forehead right about now. Of course, everyone is entitled to their own opinions but we all know that this wasn’t a clever move… Here’s the “apology” message.

Dear Tomb Raider Community,

As you may have seen, we’ve just announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider, coming Holiday 2015, is exclusively on Xbox. We consider all of you to be the lifeblood of Tomb Raider and the work we do at Crystal. I’d like to give you some insight into this decision, and why we feel this is the very best thing for the Tomb Raider sequel we’re creating at the studio.

Tomb Raider in 2013 was a success due in large part to your continued support. Our goal has always been to deliver something truly special with Rise of the Tomb Raider. Today’s announcement with Microsoft is one step to help us put Tomb Raider on top of action adventure gaming. Our friends at Microsoft have always seen huge potential in Tomb Raider and have believed in our vision since our first unveil with them on their stage at E3 2011. We know they will get behind this game more than any support we have had from them in the past - we believe this will be a step to really forging the Tomb Raider brand as one of the biggest in gaming, with the help, belief and backing of a major partner like Microsoft.

This doesn’t mean that we’re walking away from our fans who only play on PlayStation or on PC. Those are great systems, with great partners, and amazing communities. We have Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris coming to those platforms this December, and Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition is available on PS4.

We know that there are probably many more questions and concerns. Please do send them to us, and we’ll answer to the best of our ability. Meanwhile we’re going all out to try and make something truly special - the most ambitious Tomb Raider game ever built.

Thanks,

Darrell Gallagher
Crystal Dynamics Head of Studios

Please tell me that you guys didn’t just announce your next big hit (and your salary) on a console that sold HALF the amount as the competition. In Layman’s terms: PS4 sold twice as many consoles as the Xbox One. I’m all for trying to be competitive and stuff but this is just ridiculous. I would understand the thinking behind this move IF we were talking about the PS3 and Xbox 360 where the cost of a brand new console is only a mere £120-150 (compared to the current gen, of course) so the “price of switching” or purchasing an additional console would not set people back with the same amount as their monthly mortgage. But this is not the case. From being a multi-platform game, you  guys went and alienated at least half of your audience. The funny thing is that I know the data and you guys know the data. The PS4 sold more consoles than the Xbox One. Simple.

We can also guess what Microsoft wants to do here. Without a proper platform exclusive title (of course, you have the great Halo series and Fable promises to be at least as fun as the previous ones, they still lost the exclusivity to Splinter Cell, for example) they want to match the likes of Uncharted (which is the obvious target market here), inFamous and the Last of Us.

Again, understandable move but it is not a move that any of the affected parties will be able to live and work with. While some might not even give a flying p00p about Microsoft, Square Enix and/or Crystal Dynamics, I, for one, am very concerned for them as well as the most important party that must feel as loved as a Meg Griffin from Family Guy, the players…

Flesh-Hungry Suarez Invited To UK’s First Zombie Wedding

We wouldn’t do such a thing but this one time, thanks to the extremely funny nature of it, here’s the actual press release from Deep Silver. (with some additional photos. Enjoy :D

Premiership footballer (and zombie in training) invited to the first UK zombie-themed wedding to celebrate the launch of Dead Island RiptideTM

Today, videogame publisher Deep Silver issued an open invitation to Liverpool striker Luis Suarez to attend as the guest of honour at the UK’s first wedding to feature a zombie bride and groom.

Another one bites in us!

Jennifer Jones, 27, and Rob Blackmore, 31 – both from Suarez’s beloved Liverpool – will be joining in unholy matrimony tomorrow night in Central London as part of the celebrations for the launch of new zombie videogame, Dead Island Riptide™. The couple will be made up to look like the undead creatures normally found shuffling and preying on the living in a zombie apocalypse videogame.

Deep Silver believes that Suarez – who bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic on the arm during the second half of Sunday’s 2-2 draw between Liverpool and Chelsea – will fit in well alongside the flesh-eating zombie hordes at the wedding.

Mark Fisher, Head of UK Marketing, Deep Silver, said:
“Luis Suarez is currently getting a hard time in the media following his Branislav bite down, but at Deep Silver we understand those who have an appetite for human flesh like the zombie hordes found in Dead Island Riptide. With that in mind, we’d be delighted to have Suarez attend our zombie wedding… just as long as he’s aware that the bride and groom might bite back!”

Over 250 people will gather to bear witness to zombie Jenn and zombie Rob’s nuptials, including friends and family who travelled down from Liverpool to see the couple get hitched zombie-style. The pair became the official Dead Island Riptide zombie wedding bride and groom after entering a competition on Facebook, and beat off dozens of applicants earlier this year by impressing the judges with their genuine love for each other, and enthusiasm for the Dead Island franchise.

The unorthodox wedding ceremony will take place at One Mayfair in London, which will be dressed to look like a Caribbean paradise gone to hell – a theme that runs through the Dead Island series of games. The latest of which, Dead Island Riptide, goes on sale in the UK this Friday, 26th April 2013.

Following the wedding blessing and exchanging of the vows presided over by a zombie priest, the ceremony will provide the usual trappings found at a traditional wedding, including: the speeches, cutting of the cake and the first dance… but all with a ghoulish zombie twist. Live music will be provided by zombified band Mariachi Mexteca, as well as a DJ set from presenter and actress Sarah Chapman.

As well as hosting a zombie-style beach wedding, Dead Island Riptide’s publisher, Deep Silver, will also be sending the undead couple off on a Caribbean honeymoon.

 

Of course, it is possible that Suarez just wanted to become as famous as the kid who got bit by Charlie. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OBlgSz8sSM) :)

Dead Island Riptide will be available to chew on, on April 26, 2013.

Surgeon Simulator 2013 - Launch Trailer

Bossa Studios, the creators of the successful and BAFTA winner Monstermind, created a game that can only be described as one of the most difficult games since QWOP, the online indie game that made you laugh so hard that your tears (thanks to the continuous crying) were listed in the credits. We’re saying “probably” because we did not manage to finish the track ONCE! :D

Surgeon Simulator 2013 aims at something similar that surely will result in some great gaming moments. Of course, if anyone from Bossa Studios tells you that they can do a certain operation on you for cheaper than an actual doctor, don’t believe them. :)

Surgeon Simulator is available on Steam now.
