Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock – Trailer

25 Jan 2012

Dr Who has a new video game coming out that looks absolutely fantastic. With Matt Smith as the Dr and Alex Kingston as River Song as the main characters of this game. What little I can find out on the game play is that you are either one or the other character and you are romping through time and space meeting up with classic and modern Dr Who monsters and villains in a series of challenges. Well that is good enough for me. Sadly it will be one of those exclusive releases that will be released for the PS3 and PS Vita via the PlayStation Network and then shortly after for the PC .I knew I should of went for the PS3 . Oh well what can you do. I am going to have to settle for the PC version of the game when it comes out.

Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock will launch globally, initially on PS3 and PS Vita via the PlayStation Network, in March 2012 with a PC version due shortly after.

Players will be up against the most feared monsters from the Doctor Who universe -- the Cybermen, Daleks, Silurians and the Silence.

Star Trek Online Free to Play Model Coming Soon

05 Sep 2011

After Perfect World  bought out Cryptic Studios back in May 31st, 2011 it looked like that Star Trek Online would continue as usual . But recently Perfect World announced that Star trek Online , a MMORPG ( massively multiplayer online role-playing game ) will sometime in 2011 have a Free To Play Model (a business model in which a product is offered free of charge while a fee is charged for users to access premium features). The announcement is vague on the date but when the date is set I will post it . Finally the final frontier is the way it was suppose to be  FREE.  Which is for all the rest of us on budgets ( me included ) can really enjoy.

Myst on its way to become a feature film

01 Oct 2010

According to these articles at  Blastr.com, MTV, and Deadline . Myst one of my favorite computer games of all time is going to be a feature film. I still remember the first time I played the game on my old Mac 7100. Then getting the sequel Riven. Anyway enough of memory lane the movie will be made  those that brought you Narnia and the cult hit Donnie Darko.

"Our aim with this project is to stretch the genres it operated within, much like the source material did," said Mysteria Film Group's Adrian Vanderbosch, who is partnering with Mark Johnson (Narnia) and Hunt Lowry (Donnie Darko) for the film.

"It is such an innovative property and by utilizing the novels as our primary resource, we have the opportunity to offer audiences the essence of Myst without being limited only to the famous island of the first game. Our focus has always been on creating an entirely new visual experience driven by engaging characters and an epic narrative."

Final Fantasy XIII

08 Feb 2010

I remember when FF VII came out for the PS 1. Many many of hours were spent on my couch playing that game. To me that was the ultimate of gaming back in the day. I remembered how incredible the game play, graphics, and the level of detail that was put into that game were.  It was like playing a movie from start to finish. Incredible I thought . How can you top this? Then came VIII , XI , X , XI , XII which I only got to play 3 on that list. They were still enjoyable but nothing like the first.  And then came a host of games that imitated its design. And those games still use that model even till today. Now they are up to XIII and from some of the articles I have read including an interview with director Motomu Toriyama and its producer Yoshinori Kitase with Play (see below for link and partial) with Play Mag about Final Fantasy XIII  which they  give some insite on the design and theme of the popular gaming series and what the future may hold for the next game in that series. The game looks like it will be as popular at least for the short term as the original may have been.
