Another quick vid from the show floor.
Freejack would have made a better video game.
I was very intrigued when I first read about Mindjack and jumped at a chance to review it. A sci-fi third person shooter where your main character has the ability to “hack” into anything that has a mind or computer, as well as the ability to jump into anybody else’s game seamlessly and either help or hinder them sounded like something that could be an amazing experience if executed correctly. It’s those ifs that always get you, though. Mindjack, while having a unique and intriguing premise, fails completely in its execution.
While both Sony and Microsoft's machines will soon have motion control capabilities, Marvelous won't be leveraging the hardware.
In a recent interview with Edge Online, Yasuhiro Wada, president of Marvelous Entertainment revealed that the HD port of No More Heroes, No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise will not feature motion controls.
Most people will be more scared of the graphics and controls than the actual gameplay.
Ju-On: The Grudge is a haunted house simulator, a new sub-genre of survival horror invented by the game. The title is an extension of the famous Ju-On horror films first produced in Japan in 2003. The basic concept was to create an eerie world where players would fear what awaited them around each corner, and while the finished product features some definite issues, the game fulfills its goal - given the right type of gamer is playing.
Jimmy Soga tells us what a Haunted House Simulator is, what players will do, and why Ju-On Director Shimizu was an integral part of development.
XSEED's upcoming title Ju-On: The Grudge, is a haunted house simulator based in the same universe as the Ju-On movies. In fact, the creator of the Ju-On movies, Takashi Shimizu, was on hand throughout development of the game in order to assist with making the game scary and canonical. PixlBit had the opportunity to talk with Jimmy Soga of XSEED about their upcoming title Ju-On: The Grudge. Ju-On: The Grudge will release on October 13 in North America.
