Here are the first screens of the upcoming PSP port of GTA Chinatown Wars. As you can see the graphics are not anymore the pixelated mess they were on the DS. As if PSP were not enough, Rockstar confirmed that an iPhone port is in the works as well. It will use pen and touchscreen which the PSP can't as we all know.
And I threw the boxart of the upcoming Episodes from Liberty City in, which will contain the heavy metal rocker episode The Lost And Damned and the yet going to be released The Ballad of Gay Tony in one box as retail.
Don't get me wrong. This game looks really unique. But watching the latest vids beneath I recognized a lack of blood in this game. Did they do this on purpose?
I mean, an indicator of spraying blood that you've hit your target is never wrong. Especially in action games.
Update: I am playing this game right now and gore is where it should be. Great game, go buy it!
Ha, of course I'm talking about Dragon Age: Origins again! In the world of Ferelden elves have long time been slaves of mankind. Now they live together but the elves are a minority and socially not accepted. As the king's guards imprison an elven wedding community the rise against opression begins.
To be honest, I wanted to play a dwarf. But this origin is more interesting than I expected. And what's your favorite race and origin in Dragon Age?
5/5 Axes from me. Did you read the novel? There are a few differences, like for example that the mansion in the end is blown up. I am not sure if I like the book or the movie better. Both have unique elements that would justify a superiority. Stephen King himself didn't like Cubrick's interpretation of his story and he shot a three part TV series with his own script. Anyway, The Shining is great.

I remember how hyped up I've been for this game. And that without internet! Yes, in the year 1996 the internet was a rare thing. So I read lots and lots of videogame magazines. My favorite was the Sega Magazin. It even isn't existing anymore since years. And Tomb Raider, after all was a very cool game, but I found the sequel Tomb Raider II even better. Got that for Playstation 1.

Some of the basic points spoken in the vids: There's propably enough place on a BluRay disc for both Japanese and American voices but on the 360 likely not. And because Square Enix wants both versions to be equal, so the PS3 isn't getting Japanese versions on the US and EU versions.
And concerning a downloadable demo of Final Fantasy XIII. The game has progressed a lot since the demo that came with Advent Children. Square would do a completely new one now, but nothing's confirmed.
Wow, amazing things possible in videogames these days.
Dan made me call this tidbits. We wanted a way to be able to hide in the trees and pop out and say HEY WATCH OUT. So we came up with this and recorded it using Dan's phone. Sorta takes us back to the formative days where we used to take a bunch of pictures and use flip books (not really) Hope you enjot it.

Tim Curry... From where do I know this guy? Oh, I know. He took part in The Rocky Horror Picture Show and lots of other movies (Stephen King's It for example) and played a role in C&C Red Alert 3. That's where I know him from. Thanks, Wikipedia.

With the release of Starcraft II and Diablo III Blizzard expands the Battle.net. Watch the videos to get an impression.
And an interview. Wow, they're planning to do another MMO and it's not WoW?
Man, Codemasters really put a whole lot of effort in this game. I remember a dev demonstration I visited and they told us that Operation Flashpoint 2 is Codemasters' biggest project ever with most people working on it. It definitely shows.

Good old Mass Effect got some fresh new content out of nowhere. For 400 MS points you can download the 2nd DLC called Pinaccle Station. It's something like a space fightclub with 13 stages. Sounds weird, I'd 've better liked some story driven content. Better than nothing, I guess. But nearly 2 years after release this content is so late. Propably I will get it nonetheless.
And there's a new Normandy Avatar uniform for those Barbie fans beneath you:
And a premium theme is purchasable:

The imagination of everyone booming his personal music taste out in the world is somehow... confusing. I mean, this game features a lot of players. Anyway, check also my impressions out.
Did you play the demo of Dirt 2? Well, I did. While I think that it is a great racing game and it definitely would be my choice if I'd buy a racing game this year, I don't fully agree with the festival-esque style of Dirt 2. I liked the lonesome racing through the seemingly endless wilderness the first game offered. Propably there will be what I request in the main game.
In Dragon Age: Origins there's no good or evil. Just shades of grey and reactions to your decisions. This Gamespot interview is about the two different outcomes of a mission. Sounds very nice.
