Star Wars Republic Dev Interview and Brink too!

Go Go Giant Bomb. Giant Bomb got a chance to interview some of the developers for Star Wars: The Old republic. It’s safe to say we don’t really learn anything from them. Lets see some gameplay for this already.

They also Interviewed the creative director for Brink. So yeah, lots of details about the story for the game. It’s a new FPS as we know, and they say it’s a “class” based system. Curious. Then the next weird thing is that the company will intervene into your game and direct you to play online. Now it could just be a prompt and probably will, the man hours for that is insane, but uh. Creepy. So the story is basically a futuristic world gone wrong. Utopia gone wild Y’ALL. Also someone tell this dude to not drink coffee, he’s on overdrive. Peter Molyneux eat your heart out.

Dagnabbit Kojima, come wit it already!

For those that don’t know, Hideo Kojima, one of Jack and I’s favorite game designers, has been teasing something new via a viral website….his main claim to fame, the Metal Gear series…among others. This time a year ago, Jack and I were eagerly anticipating the release of Metal Gear Solid 4, and what a wonderful experience that was….but IMO, you have to be a fan and ‘get’ how things go in that world, ie, awesome gameplay followed by some extremely loooooong cutscenes with some insane storylines that only the japanese can do justice. This was the game that tied up all the loose ends of the series and felt like the last. Even Kojima said this was it….funny thing is, he always says that, so I knew something was coming in the future, hence that viral site. Yes, I see the timer and everything, every now and then they tease a pic, Raiden here, Big Boss there….it’s like, we have an idea that something’s there, just let us know the deal already…I understand the need to build hype and anticipation, but after a certain amount of time, I get frustrated and don’t wanna know about it till it’s out….as I said in the title, come wit it already! 🙂 Anywayz, I hope it stars Raiden, the whiny annoying star of MGS2, but became such a super badass in MGS4….Kojima forced us to play as him in part 2 when we didn’t want to, then made him so cool in 4, and nada, didn’t get to control him once….*sigh* Maybe we’ll learn something new about it since E3 is next week.

Modern Warfare 2 trailer, Oorah!!

So yeah, gametrailers came through with the full trailer for Modern Warfare 2….The continuation of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (durr), looks like the devs, Infinity Ward, are dropping the Call of Duty name. Why, who knows, maybe cuz IW wants to keep their war games in the modern world now, and their publisher, Activision, doesn’t mind going down the WWII road over and over again, even with different devs. Don’t get me wrong, Call of Duty:World At War is pretty tight, but I guess consumers might get confused, this way they know MW is, well, modern….and COD probably stays WWII, but I could be wrong…either way, enjoy the new trailer, whichs looks slick as ever with new snow environments and an even bigger scope in cinematic action than before. Coming 11-10-09.
