Around the web: Countdown edition (Updated)

Time runs out on Jack Bauer tonight in the series finale of 24, but you’ve still got three days to place your votes on the longlist for this year’s Golden Joysticks. To recap, in the “One to Watch” category, three of our upcoming titles (Brink, Fallout: New Vegas, and RAGE) are nominated. Meanwhile, you can still vote for Splash Damage (Brink) for UK Developer of the Year.

Speaking of Splash Damage, Paul Wedgwood, CEO and Game Director on Brink, recently took time to answer questions on Brink with Game Reactor. Here’s a snippet:

You’re focusing a lot on the story. How will it work in an online shooter, where there’s usually not a lot of room for storytelling?

The most important thing for us that no matter how you choose to play, online or offline, there’s a reason why you are fighting against the others in the game. It starts when you create your character and choose which side to play on: Resistance or Security? Resistance are refugees that believe in a society where everything shared by everyone, and that the Security people are violent dictators.

Elsewhere, on the heels of their Fallout: New Vegas preview, Game Revolution’s Blake Morse shares impressions of RAGE after seeing it our Gamers’ Day event.

Finally, with the countdown clock to E3 right around three weeks, Gamespot is already looking ahead to the madness. Currently Fallout: New Vegas ranks among the most anticipated in their Readers’ Choice vote, while Senior News Editor Tor Thorsen lets us know he’s ready for more Fallout in their Editors’ Choice feature.

Update: We’ve spotted a new Hunted interview at GameZone with with inXile Entertainment’s Brian Fargo. Read it here.

  1. FALLOUT: NEW VEGAS hardcore mode looks amazing. Weighted ammo, slow healing stimpaks instead of instant, death by dehydration if one doesnt drink water, crippled limbs that cant be healed with a stimpak and need real medical attention….Oh and those posters definitely capture the character of the area.

    Sweet-Sweet-Sweet!!!

  2. F3NV hardcore mode — sounds like Oscuro is hard at work doing exactly what we hoped he would do at Obsidian! How cool is that?

    Awesome!
