Resident Evil to get more DLC, maybe

by Raychul on May 20, 2009

In a recent interview with ButtonBasher, Capcom’s Chris Svensson talked about more DLC for Resident Evil 5, “We haven’t ruled out more content for RE5 as DLC. In fact, on Capcom-Unity.com last week, someone asked the same question and I asked fans what they wanted to see if we were to make some more. The result was a thread on our boards that is hundreds of posts long, tens of thousands of views and I’ll be “interpreting” that feedback and making recommendations to Takeuchi-san based on it. There’s nothing to announce by any stretch, but I think it’s worth noting that we’re considering it.”

Sounds pretty promising to me.

Star Trek the movie review

by Raychul on May 15, 2009

Like most of you, I went and saw the new Star Trek film this past weekend. I don’t consider myself a “Trekkie” although I did thoroughly enjoy the original Star Trek series and the Next Generation series and I also have seen all of the past Star Trek movies. I went into the new Star Trek film familiar with the characters, their personalities and knowing a lot of their background yet as I watched the movie I still felt like I was getting to know each character all over again. I loved the character development and I think the casting for each part was perfect. Even though I am familiar with Star Trek and I knew the overall outcome of the film, I was still on the edge of my seat for the whole film.

I think J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek is pretty close to a perfect film, it had just the right amount of action, comedy, drama and suspense to captivate any type of movie goer. J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek also kept true to the nature and the characters of the original show for the fans yet introduced new ideas and traits to also win over the newcomers.

by Raychul on May 14, 2009

Today Sony released a fact sheet on their upcoming PS3 and PC exclusive title, The Agency. While the game’s release date is still unannounced, the game is already creating quite a buzz of excitement. Check it:

With gameplay ranging from sneaky infiltration to all out firefight assaults, there’s something for every aspiring agent.

• Build Your Own Agency: As players advance through the ranks of their faction, they’ll also begin building their own Agencies. Players increase their power even further by creating Joint Agencies with others.

Playboy MMO in the Making

by Raychul on May 13, 2009

You know, I loved the Playboy sim game on the Xbox, PS2 and PC that came out a few years ago called Playboy Mansion, so it’s safe to say that I am also excited about this announcement. The new Playboy game will be called Playboy Manager and it will be completely browser based.

From the press release:

Jolt Online Gaming and Playboy Enterprises Inc. Announce Playboy Manager: The Massively Casual Online Game! In Playboy Manager, you play a crack talent agent managing the career of some of Playboy’s hottest up-and-coming models. Competing against thousands of other players, you will guide your model’s career toward her ultimate goal: Becoming a world-renowned Playmate with a permanent room in the Playboy Mansion!

We’ve wanted to do a Playboy game forever,” exclaimed Dylan Collins, CEO of Jolt. “As enormous fans of the articles, we jumped at the opportunity to bring the game online for a huge audience. Who hasn’t wanted to manage a Playboy model?

We are delighted to work with Jolt in offering our fans this great new way to experience and enjoy the World of Playboy,” said Scott Stephen, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Playboy Digital.

Combining the best elements of trading card and turn-based gaming, Playboy Manager is the only online game to feature exclusive content from Playboy, including videos and photos of breathtaking Playboy models.

The game will be free to play (yay!) and is expected to be available this summer. You can sign up to get access to the early beta and possibly win a lifelong subscription to the magazine at www.playboymanager.com.
