    Playstation Move

    June 17, 2010 by JoePlay

    Nic and I got to try out Move with a game called The Shoot. The game has different game modes, called "scenes," that use the same mechanics, but in different environments. I played a Western scene in which I was on a manual railroad car. Cowboys on horses would enter the screen from the sides, and further back, there were enemies on the train riding parallel to me. The standard attack was a simple gun used by pointing the Move at the target and pressing the trigger button on the under side of the controller. As I finished shooting the enemies in a particular section, I had to progress to the next section by moving the controller up and down, to mimic the action of raising and lowering the handle of the railroad car. While doing it, I could…

    Dead Rising 2

    June 16, 2010 by JoePlay

    Zombie killing fun returns. I got to play Dead Rising 2 for a bit. Some of the weapons I used myself or saw other players use are the typical things like a bat, 2x4 piece of wood, but a few of the more interesting weapons were:

    Saw blade - I was able to fling a saw blade like a frisbee through a crowd, taking down multiple zombies at once, then go pick it up and fling it again. Rinse and repeat until you're ready for a different weapon.

    Box of nails - While using this weapon, you are throwing a handful of nails at a time at your target, killing it eventually. Not the most effective choice, but it is rather funny taking out a zombie with thrown nails.

    Chainsaw - Very satisfying weapon, as expected. Using it makes a clean, horizontal cut throug…

    I didn't play the original game, so all I knew about the new Splatterhouse was that it would be gory, and let me tell you, it certainly delivers. This game is certainly not for the squeamish. The game has a slight cel-shaded effect which gives it a cool look. The demo had me walking from room to room slicing enemies. As mentioned, the game is very bloody - as you're wasting enemies, the floor, walls, and even you are covered in blood from the massive carnage. The gore does give quite a sense of badass-ness as you play. An interesting gameplay mechanic is that you can power up your character, giving it extra power and regaining lost health. One of the power ups give you ultimate killing ability and the screen changes to a very cool looking …

    There was an enclosed glass diplay showing the 2 new guitar controllers for Rock Band 3 - the Mustang, which already has pictures on the web since last week, and the Stratocaster Pro controller. As promised, the Stratocaster is basically a real guitar tweaked to work with the game. As you can see in the photos, it has real strings and a plug-in to connect to an amplifier. The difference is the addition of some buttons. What exactly the buttons do was not specified on the display, nor was there a price. Considering that the Mustang, which is only slightly smaller than the real-guitar-sized Strat, will be $150, I expect the Stratocaster Pro to be quite pricey. Nonetheless, it looks like it could be a great item for anyone wanting to make tha…

    Stormtroopers = win

    June 16, 2010 by JoePlay

    There were a couple stormtroopers in front of the big screen showing a trailer for The Force Unleashed II. Unfortunately we haven't seen a guy in a Darth Vader costume... maybe later.
