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.”
Here’s a few notable mentions I’ve seen in the press recently.
If you live in Germany, you’ll want to check out GameStar’s August cover story for Fallout 3. The issue is currently on newsstands and features five pages of coverage — written by Christian Schmidt. You can also read his preview on GameStar’s website here.
Happy Friday to everyone! Here’s some of the latest Fallout 3 news.
A few weeks back, we let you know about â€˜A Post-Apocalyptic Film Festival Presented by Fallout 3â€² that’s taking place in LA on August 22 and 23. Since folks have asked about ordering tickets, I thought I’d point out that tickets for the festival can be purchased on Fandango. Click here for Friday’s showings, and here for Saturday.
This afternoon the nominations for the Game Critics Awards’ “The Best Games of E3” were released — with Fallout 3 receiving nods in the Best of Show, Best Console Game, and Best Role Playing Game categories.
The nominations were determined by a panel judges from the various newspapers, magazines, television networks and blogs.
Winners for “The Best Games of E3″ will be announced on Tuesday, August 5. For more details on the awards, head here.
Here’s a couple videos I thought you might be interested in checking out on Game Trailers. Up first, Geoff Keighley moderates a round table discussion about Music in Gaming for their Bonus Round series. Here, Inon Zur, the composer of Fallout 3, discusses the impact of music in videogames with Steve Schnur of EA and and Charles Huang from Red Octane.
This is only part 1 of the discussion. We’ll let you know when the next segment goes live. For more more news from around the web, hit the jump below.
Here’s a few previews/interviews that have surfaced since Friday.
IGN has the demonstration Todd did for LiveWire w/ Jessica Chobot (above) available on their site. You can stream it above, or watch a higher resolution version here.
Speaking of Todd, there’s a couple other interviews you can check out. MTV Multiplayer’s Stephen Totilo spoke with him at E3, and there’s not one, but two interviews that went up on their blog this week. Meanwhile, the BBC put up an interview late last week.
