South Park: The Stick of Truth

In what could eventually become the greatest game ever made, an RPG based in the South Park universe developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the team behind Fallout: New Vegas, has had fans salivating.

Fast forward six months and our first peek at South Park: The Stick of Truth has been unveiled at this year’s E3. And it absolutely looks like it lives up to the hype. As you’ll see, this game looks exactly like an episode of South Park. You’re the new kid in town, and everyone is looking to you for help.

You can check out the trailer below, as well as a special appearance from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

E3 2011: An Indie To Watch: Q.U.B.E

E3 2011: QUBE Quick Understanding of Block ExtrusionSqueezing in a tiny corner in the vast expanse of the LA Convention Center’s South Hall, obscured by titans such as EA and Microsoft, was an area reserved for independent games, called IndieCade. These plucky Davids are the antitheses to the Goliaths backed by multinational corporations such as Sony and Nintendo. I always make time during E3 to check out their games. I feel, as I do with motion picture studios, that where the majors often get stuck in a rut, making derivative sequels and regurgitating stale ideas, the independents are often where you find the most cutting-edge creativity, bold concepts unsquelched by corporate groupthink.

Every year, one or two of these games stand out amongst them as potentially groundbreaking. Last year it was Miegakure and Hazard: The Journey of Life, two games I feel are still ahead of their time. This year, the game that really caught my eye was called Q.U.B. E.: Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion.

E3 2011: Closer Look At ‘The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’ Shows Inventory, Skill Customization & More!

We saw an amazing gameplay demo for Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim come out of E3 earlier this week, which showed off things like the ability to mix and match magic spells, weapons, and shields in both hands, combat, and something a lot of people are excited about: dragon fights.

While that demo was fantastic to watch and has everyone even more excited about Skyrim (if that was at all possible), Todd Howard sat down for another demonstration and showed off even MORE goodies from the game.

This new video showed a lot of the same things we saw in the earlier dragon fight demo, but this time around he also shows us the interface menu, what inventory will look like (including thousands of items we can examine in three dimensions), Guardian Stones, dialogue, jobs, the map, riding horses, and how our character will evolve into their own uniquely talented individual based on how you play. Excitement!

You can see this new gameplay demo for Skyrim below.

E3 2011: See The Excellent Opening Cinematic For BioWare’s ‘Star Wars: The Old Republic’

The long-awaited Star Wars: The Old Republic is a huge MMO based in the Star Wars universe that has been in the making for years now at BioWare, creators of the Mass Effect and Dragon Age action RPG video game series. Plenty of impressive trailers and gameplay videos have been released over time, but because the game is so mammoth and because fans have been dying to finally play it for so long, BioWare has to make sure to keep releasing new goodies to appease the masses.

To sweeten the pot at E3 2011, the Old Republic crew brought not only some juicy details and brand new footage, but the entire opening cinematic to the game, which I have to say is really freakin’ good. Oh, and it has a SPACE COWBOY! Not sure if that’ll upset or elate fans, but this humble observer loves it (#teamfirefly). On top of that, BioWare still remains determined to have the game out at some point in 2011, though there’s still a good chance we’ll have to wait for 2012.

You can see the awesome Star Wars: The Old Republic opening cinematic, as well as an extended interview with lots of details and new gameplay footage by clicking on over to the other side now.

The Adventures of Tintin: The GameUbisoft demonstrated gameplay at E3 this week for The Adventures of Tintin: The Game, the tie-in for the upcoming animated film produced by Peter Jackson and directed by Steven Spielberg.

The presentation began with the film trailer. This was followed by a recorded introduction by Spielberg and Jackson, proudly describing the game as “very cinematic” and faithful to the film. Following that, the lead Ubisoft developer asked us to don our 3D glasses, and fired up the demo.

Most of the gameplay shown took place aboard the SS Karaboudjan, a cargo ship Tintin has stowed away aboard, as he dodges volleys from smugglers who are trying to get him off the ship, Later, Tintin must escape the sinking cargo ship, as rising ocean waters threaten to drown him. These levels play as side-scrolling platformer, but the 3D effect make the set pieces feel so deep and impressive, it nearly counters the linear gameplay.

Fitting to its premise, Hitman: Absolution had a very stealthy E3 2011 presence. Some “behind closed doors” demo work and Square Enix had a small group of lucky individuals raving about how great the game looks.

Despite staying in the shadows for the most part, the team that’s FINALLY making a new Hitman game (instead of another horrible Kane & Lynch) didn’t want to leave the rest of us empty handed. They brought with them a few details about the game, as well as a brand new cinematic trailer.

You can see the new cinematic trailer below, followed by an interview with some details about the game, which will be released sometime in 2012.

E3 2011: New ‘Star Trek’ Game Channels ‘Mass Effect’; Will Bridge J.J. Abrams Movies

There’s been some surprises at E3 2011, as there always is, and one of these surprises is a first trailer for a brand new Star Trek video game. As we all know, most games based on movies are horrible and vice versa, and Trek games especially have been pretty unplayable over the years…but there’s something about this one.

The new game will supposedly bridge the story gap between where J.J. Abrams‘ 2009 blockbuster left off, and where his 2012 sequel will pick up. The game will also be released at some point in 2012.

And yes, as you will see in the trailer, the game it might be a total Mass Effect ripoff in terms of the look, colors, and gameplay. But if that’s what it takes to get a great movie-based game, then why not. Word out of E3 is that the game also works very well with the PlayStation Move and exclusive phaser attachment that will be available to those who play the PS3 version.

Check out the trailer by continuing on now!

E3 2011: Trailer, Gameplay Shown Off For New ‘Tomb Raider’ Reboot

The Movie God   |  @   |

The decision to completely makeover Lara Croft and the Tomb Raider franchise is looking more and more like a very smart decision. Not only did they give Miss Croft a much more realistic appearance, but the new game keeps getting solid buzz and a whole lot of people who were never interested in Tomb Raider now walk with piqued curiosities.

The one really important question that was left, however, was how exactly the gameplay would look. We’ve seen the new Croft and the new cinematic trailer (which can be seen below) is excellent, but until you see the game in action it’s hard to know what to expect—which is why in addition to said cinematic trailer, E3 saw the arrival of a new Tomb Raider gameplay demo as well!

Another intriguing factor is that the game starts from the beginning when Lara Croft first sets off to find her adventures as a young girl. Of course, things never go quite as planned…as you shall soon see.

You can check out both the trailer and the gameplay demo by heading below now!

E3 2011: PlayStation Vita First Impressions

Playstation VitaThe Playstation Vita is the latest handheld console announced by Sony at this week’s E3 convention. At first glance, it appears to be a revision of the classic PSP, as its design lines don’t fall far from the tree. A closer look reveals advances that Sony hopes will make it a forerunner in the handheld market.

While it still has the faithful dual analog stick control, D-Pad and action buttons, it now boasts gyroscopic Six Axis motion sensors, single front- and rear-facing cameras (for augmented reality games), a multi-touch front display, and intriguingly, a rear multi-touch interface (more on that in a bit).

I was taken through a series of five game demos over thirty minutes, the first of which was Little Big Planet. Gameplay was fairly conventional, using the analog sticks to move Sackboy around, but other environmental elements were touchscreen interactive, such as using the front screen touch surface to move blocks in place or spin wheels.

Another big title making a big appearance at this year’s E3 convention is, of course, BioWare’s trilogy-making Mass Effect 3.

We’ve seen the first cinematic trailer for the game, but now Casey Hudson and the team at BioWare are ready to show off their gameplay…which comes with promises of a great story, phenomenal combat, and gigantic scale. But what’s totally unexpected is the announcement that some features of the game will be compatible with Kinect.
