At E3, we showed several titles (including Fallout 3′s latest DLC, Point Lookout). Rather than lumping all the coverage into one blog post, I’ll make it easier on you guys and separate them out by title.
Up first, here’s a look back at E3 coverage for WET.
“This may be one of the coolest, most stylish games I have ever seen. But then, I am a huge fan of grindhouse cinema, so I’m biased. Written by the head writer of the first season of 24 and modeled after vintage 70s action flicks, Wet looks and plays like a video game version of Kill Bill.”
At Gamespot’s E3 Booth, Patrick Fortier (Creative Director) and Ash Ismail (Lead Game Designer) participated in a live demo of the game — showing off gameplay and revealing new details on the game. Check out the video above. For more video footage, check out this video at G4TV — featuring Eliza Dushku — the voice behind Rubi Malone. Oh, umm, Patrick’s in this video too.
Do you see yourself doing more video game roles now that you’ve got this one done?
Eliza Dushku: I was sort of holding off after the first two and then this one came to me. I like the idea of seeing this one sort of go farther and go deeper. I definitely feel a real identification with [the character].
With E3, there’s plenty of new hands-on coverage for the game. Check out the following…
It’s been a while since the last blog post — Pete and Ash were off at E3 while I was getting hitched and enjoying Costa Rica. With E3 in the rear view mirror, there’s plenty to catch up on. Shall we get started?
Last week on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, SNL vet Jason Sudeikis reported on the events taking place at E3. The clip is pretty hilarious, and actually includes Eliza Dushku and Mickey Rourke, who were on hand signing posters and meeting fans for WET and Rogue Warrior, respectively. There’s even outtakes for both Eliza and Mickey.
In other news, at the start of E3, Pete wrote a blog post for Edge discussing our plans for the show. Here’s a snippet:
“I guess key to that message is the reveal of a title we have been working on with the folks at Splash Damage for some time now, called Brink. We felt it was the right time to announce this game and start talking about some of the new and different things this game is bringing to the shooter space. I think folks will be impressed with what Paul Wedgewood and his team have come up with.”
Regulars to Bethesda Blog are familiar with our Inside the Vault blog posts — sort of a meet & greet of developers at Bethesda Games Studios. With all the external projects we’ve got going, we thought we’d venture outside the vault so you can meet the folks working on these projects.
Up first, we’ve got Patrick Fortier from A2M — the team behind WET.
In case you missed the world premiere teaser trailer for Brink last night on GTTV, you can watch it on our new site for the game, BrinkTheGame.com.
Brink is being developed by Splash Damage and will release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in Spring 2010. We’ll keep you posted on news/interviews/etc. for the game here on Bethesda Blog. Look for a lot more info on this game next week when E3 swings into action.
Want to get a look at the hottest games of E3 before anyone else? GTTV’s Geoff Keighley is joined by actress Rose McGowan to reveal the most anticipated games of the show in front of a live audience in Los Angeles. See world premiere trailers, an appearance from Battlestar Galactica’s Tricia Helfer, and other surprises.
Be sure to tune into Spike TV, and if you can’t, be sure to set your DVR.
Fallout 3 Game Add-on Pack #1 (which includes The Pitt and Operation: Anchorage on a disc) is now in stores. Some of you might have noticed that the front cover indicates there’s a “Free Vault Boy Poster” included in the box. Here’s a look at the poster, which measures 14” x 18.”
Fallout 3 Game Add-on Pack #1 is available on Xbox 360 and PC.
David Hodgson, author of the Fallout 3 Game Guide, hasn’t stopped playing Fallout 3. With three DLCs available now, and two more on the way, he continues his quest to document everything in the game. In stores today, you can purchase The Official Game Guide to The Pitt and Operation: Anchorage. To celebrate the occasion, David put together another blog post discussing its contents. To learn more about the guide, including a sample of pages from the guide, head to Prima Games Author Blog.
In early February 2009, I was lucky enough to venture into the Capital Wasteland and beyond for a jaunt through Operation: Anchorage and The Pitt. The fruits of my latest expedition can be digested today, as the Official Game Guide to The Pitt and Operation: Anchorage hits stores. Having charted the topography of the original game, we employed many of the same elements to this new tome, which couldn’t have been possible with out the help and continued support of Bethesda. I mean, who else would have found the secret Morse code radio signals that no one’s figured out yet, right?
This week’s modding interview is with ElminsterEU. Originally from Germany, he now lives in Australia, and indicates he has no plans of leaving. When he’s not modding, he works as a Lead Architect for a relationship database management system. His hobbies include reading science fiction and fantasy novels, pen-and-paper RPGs, swimming, and scuba diving. I guess the scuba diving wasn’t that great in Germany.
