3-Lite Podcast

Here’s 3-Lite blogs first podcast. We had some troubles recording the podcast in English, so this one is in Swedish.

———————->3-Lite Podcast nr. 1 <———————-

Next time we will try to make a video out of it so we can add subtitles. Until we improve our English accent, this will have to due.

Anyway, in today’s podcast we give some insight to the upcoming games; Battlefield 1943 and Ghostbusters. We discuss about two games which we find underated; Killer 7 and Beyond Good & Evil. We discuss the rumor of a new PSP in development. Lastly Akira_san cheers the old SNES classic Super Punchout!

Battlefield 1943 is a FPS game in development by DICE. It is supposed to be released this summer via online clients to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
It will be purchasable on Xbox Live Marketplace and the PSN store. Probably on Steam for the PC, but nothing is confirmed about it yet. The game will only be released online to keep the price down, and that gives Battlefield 1943 a total price of about 200SEK ($25).
The gameplay will be about the same as previous Battlefield games, but the graphics and physics is greatly enhanced.

Ghostbusters is another game up for release this summer. It’s a third-person ghost-cathing-action game with multiplayer capabilities.
The game takes place just after the second movie. It will be up to you to cleanse New York from pink neon fluffy cute ghosts this time. The game looks awesome and will probably be too.

Killer 7 is a game designed by the mastermind Suda51. It was released back in 2005 and received good reviews, but in my opinion this was the one of the best games released that year and one of my favorites ever.
It has a truly unique playstyle where you walk on-rails in a pretty much open world. Even though it’s pretty restricted it sure is enjoyable. You get to shoot crazy suicidal monsters, meet up with extraordinary bosses and try to save the world from world war between Japan and USA.

Beyond Good & Evil is an action-adventure with stealth elements. It was released back in 2003 by ubisoft. but failed to get any good attention because of poor marketing. You play as Jade, equipped with a camera and a staff. The story takes place in a futuristic world on a combat planet called Hyllis. The plot is very complicated and political. The mission is to expose the corrupt in the world and save some children who are kidnapped by evil aliens.

There’s a rumor about a new PSP. This time without the UMD and instead a service to download games. It will be equipped with a hard drive and you can choose from either 8GB or 16GB.
Sony doesn’t want to comment whether it’s true or not. Probably because of E3 coming up in two weeks.

Super Punhout! is an old SNES classic in which you play as Mike, a young boxer who wants to become the champion. After he finds a good manager the challenge to become the best begins.
You start off pretty simple with characters you easily knock out and then it gets harder and harder.

Brütal Legend

BR LOGO !
There’s nothing you can really do to prepare to rock. Do you prepare to eat a delicious meal? Are you hungry? Then you’re gonna eat it
– Jack Black

Maybe you can’t prepare yourself to rock, but at least get ready for Rocktober! The month when Brutal Legend is up for release.
Brutal Legend is a upcoming action-adventure game and the mastermind designer behind it is none other than Tim Schafer. The man who brought us Psychonauts, Grim Fandago and the first two Monkey Island games.

brutallegend2
You play as Eddie Riggs, the worlds best roadie for the worlds worst Heavy Metal band. Eddie is accidentally brought into a fantasy world after bleeding on his cursed belt buckle. Which is actually a amulet for Ormagöden, “The Fire Beast, Creamator of the Sky, and Destroyer of the Ancient World”.
The fantasy world Eddie Riggs is transported to is inspired by Heavy Metal posters and it’s in that world where the whole story takes place.

Brutal Legend will be in third-person in an open world, apparently 64km2 according to Tim Schafer. As mentioned you play as Eddie, but here comes the funny part; Eddie is voiced by Jack Black. Yes, the comedian rockstar! I personally think it’s an awesome feature to the game. Don’t you just love Tenacious D and Pick of Destiny?
Anyway, as Eddie you will have three different tools to choose from. One is a broadaxe named “The Separater”, another one is Eddies guitar “Clementine” with magical powers within the Heavy Metal world. Lastly there is a Hot Rod named “The Deuce” which Eddie builds for himself.
As you progress you will be able to upgrade these three tools and their abilities.

With that it’s up to you to fight of the evil in the Heavy Metal world and save your love and the human world from being destroyed. A awesome concept for a game and I can’t wait for it to hit the stores.
Jack Black, Heavy Metal and a crazy fantasy world filled with evil. Who wouldn’t appreciate that?
Another thing I like about this upcoming game is the graphics. It has more of a childish look to it. That shows that Brutal Legend isn’t some radical metal game for hard-rockers only. That gives the game some self distance. There will probably be a lot of humor too for that matter.

Let’s rock like there’s no tomorrow in Rocktober!

Bioshock 2

bioshock-2-sea-of-dreams-logo-big

With a new demo of bioshock 2 being released I thought I would write about this game today. This game’s story is played out 10 years after the first installment of bioshock. Bioshock received exelent reviews when it was released and is still on the #1 spot on steam’s top rated list.

If you never played the first game it’s basically a first person shooter that allows you to use both weapons and magic powers called plasmids. The game starts out with the main character “Jack” crashing with his airplane. He swims for a lighthouse and inside there’s an elevator that takes you down to the underwater city called rapture, in the eleveator you see a movie showing the ruler of rapture: Andrew Ryan. An Irishman, Atlas, via the service radio found in the elevator, assists Jack in making his way to safety, while Ryan, believing Jack to be an agent of a surface nation, uses Rapture’s automated systems and his phermone-controlled Splicers against him. The only way to survive down in rapture is to use the magic powers called plasmids and to make you more powerful you need adam from little sisters. Getting the adam isn’t an easy task since little sisters is protected by big daddys. Big daddy’s is the most powerful enemies in the game and they won’t give you the little sisters without a fight. If you manage to kill the big daddy you can eighter harvest them for adam or you can rescue them from the sea slugs that corrupts them. Bioshock has the same story setup as half life, where you don’t know anything about anything at the start and the story builds up over time.

bioshock2ps3rumor-mar14

The biggest diffrence between bioshock and bioshock 2 is that instead of you playing as Jack you play the first big daddy ever made. This first prototype does lack some of the super strength that big daddys possess, but makes up for it with the ability to use plasmids. Just like the good o’l big daddys in the first game you have a big ass drill on your hand and a powerful rifle. You can also dual wield plasmids and weapon wich is a new feature added.

When you’re so powerful there needs to be something that you fear even more then big daddys. So the big sister was introduced. Big sister is very agile compared to big daddys and she have the ability to suck out the adam by herself so she doesn’t need little sisters. The big sister is the first little sister trying to transform into something similar to how big daddys look and is now ruling the underwater city of rapture.  She is abducting children from the coasts of the atlantic sea   http://www.somethinginthesea.com/. Her goal is to transform the children into creatures like herself.

Instead of being guided by Atlas you are guided by dr Tenenbaum, the inventor of the little sisters. She wants you to hunt the big sister down and kill her. As always you can choose to harvest a little sister to get adam but instead of rescuing her you can adopt her adn put her on the shoulder. This enables you to see adam in dead bodies you can put the little sister down to harvest for adam, while she’s harvesting you need to protect her since the splicers will try to kill her. From what i’ve seen in the demo you can combine diffrent plasmids into traps. You can also find adam in sea slug on the bottom of the sea otuside rapture, like to ones you see when you harvest a little sisters.

Overall there’s not much more to say about the game so far. The demo only revealed small parts of the story. I’m really looking forward to this game, and i’m hoping for a simultaneous pc release since I guess it’s kinda cool in the game developer league to fuck pc gamers over.

If you didn’t see the demo yet I suggest you do:

If you didn’t play the first bioshock game you have until november 30th!

A quick look on Singularity

Yesterday they released a new trailer on Singularity, wich reminded me how awesome this game will be!

For you guys who never heard about this game its an FPS very much like Half Life 2 wich will be released on PC, xbox 360 and PS3, and it all revolves about the TMD (Time manipulation device). What it does is just what you think, it  manipulates time.

The TMD has alot in common with the gravity gun from HL2 with the most interesting features being:

Revert: This allows the player to rewind an object or human backwards in time. It can be used to repair broken walkways to a new state, revert an empty barrel of oil to a full one. Using it on humans does not, as logic would dictate, revert them to helpless children or infants, or even an agonizing death as they dwindle to mere sperm-and-egg – rather, it reverts them to a contrived ‘placental state’, presumably because it was less work for the artists to merely use the existing character models and plaster some goop over them than rendering the aforementioned transformations.

Age: This allows the player to fast-forward an object or human through time. It can turn a crate that a group of enemies are using for cover into rotted wood, or turn an iron fence blocking your path into a pile of rust. Using this on an enemy will result in them quickly aging until they are nothing more than bones and dust. Upgrading this causes your targets to age faster.

It also works like the gravity gun like picking up stuff and using a stasis field to stop time and hold activated granades.

Sounds fucking epic to me =)!

The story is based around Nate Renko who is an air force pilot investigating the island “katorga 12” only to crash land and wake up with the TMD on his arm. The goal is to stop the singularity, wich I dont really know what it is. I just know that it happened 1950 (May be based around this :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technological_singularity) .

Everything about this game looks very promising, not too much story, not too linear and not too confusing either. I really love the “fuck-with-physics-weapons” like with the gravity gun and the portal gun. So im pretty sure this game is worth atleast one playthrough just to have fun with the TMD.

Multiplayer has been announced but nothing about how it will work. Looking forward to that too.

Here’s the trailer:
