Is Phil Fish getting through the same dev hell of the first FEZ?

27 Jul

A while ago we reported that Phil Fish is finally developing the sequel for his masterpiece FEZ, and that was a good news. But we all know the troubles he got through during the developing of the first game, and it’s all well documented by Indie Game: The Movie.

Now, we thought that the indie dev was matured a bit during (and after) his first dev-hell…but seems we were wrong: this is what Fish tweeted a couple of hours ago.

We hope and believe this is not true, it’s just a “bad moment” in the process. But we also think that Phis has to make up his mind and behave like a grown up, without giving less shit about other people attacking him on the internet! And we’re not alone, also Cliff Bleszinski think the same:

This news is not to mock him or what…we just want to express our support to a talentous game dev!

Katsuhiro Harada gone missing?

5 Jun

Katsuhiro Harada

There is something strange happening to Katsuhiro Harada, producer of the Tekken series.
In fact, a couple of hours ago, from his official Twitter has been published the following tweet.

So, seems like Harada sensei has been missing from the office since a week ago.

Obviously we don’t know if this is true or just some sort of joke and/or promotional campaign, but usually Japanese people aren’t really fond of bad jokes.
We’ll keep you posted, stay tuned.

*** UPDATE (06/06/2013 – 08.46am) ***

Harada is still missing, but his staff is reassuring fans that the producer should be fine, as he’s logging into steam on a daily basis.

Kojima seems to be behind the Phantom Pain project

21 Mar

We’ve talked a lot about this mysterious Phantom Pain, with the recent interview of Joakim Mogren and the last teaser trailer from Moby Dick Studio.

People is still saying that behind all this well-thinked plan there’s the genius mind of our dear Hideo Kojima, and that The Phantom Pain will be nothing more that a new Metal Gear Solid title.

We don’t know if Joakim Mogren exists or not, nor if the game will be an another MGS; but now it’s kinda sure that Kojima is in the project…well, more than that. In fact, today Kojima posted a picture on Twitter with a screenshot of a trailer he was making. Take a look.

If you’re wondering what the hell he said, it’s just “This is what this lens flair is like, lol.”. But this is not the clue. The trailer says that Kojima is the Producer, Game Designer and Director…but of which game? Take a closer look…check the fine name…got it? Yep, the file name is TPP_GDC2013_720p_ESRB!

TPP is obviously The Phantom Pain…and this could be the trailer they will show in the upcoming GDC 2013.

So, surprise surprise, Kojima is behind the Phantom Pain project!

shenmue 3 III yu suzuki kickstarter

Yep, you heard it so many times in the past twelve years, but everytime it was just bullshit…probably also this time, but still, here is your news about a possible making of long-waited Shenmue 3.

Indeed seems that Yu Suzuki, acclaimed developer of the Shenmue franchise for SEGA, is seriously thinking about a Kickstarter project to fund the development of Shenmue 3. The news comes from Sebastien Abdelhamid, a french journalist for CANAL+ , that met Suzuki at the Monaco Anime Game Show. Here’s the tweet about the rumor.

(TRANSLATION: Yu Suzuki just said that he is thinking about a Kickstarter to fund the Shenmue 3 developement ! #MAGS)

We don’t know if this will really happen, but we hope so…still, we are a bit worried about SEGA and its ownership of all the copyrights for the franchise.

Stay tuned!

Team THQ UK is still tweeting from the grave

19 Feb

THQ UK twitter

You all know what happened to THQ. If you don’t, let’s sum up just saying that it went bankrupt, closing down and selling all its IPs and studios to other software house all around the world.

But we’re quite happy to see that something is still alive (kinda). Indeed, the THQ UK twitter account is still online, tweeting about stuff. They’re quite self-ironic, talking about themselves as a ghost team. Keep it up guys.

We don’t know until this thing will last, but if you want you can follow them here.

Can you beat Metal Gear Rising in just 5 hours?

12 Feb

metal gear rising finish time complete leaked

Yes, apparently you can. And please note the underline in CAN.

From a couple of days a Metal Gear Rising‘s screenshot (WTF?? The game is not even out in Japan!) goes through the net scaring people with its 05:34 clear time. Is a game so quick to beat worth to buy? For £35/£40 (or even more if you think with different currency) looks like a legit question and so Platinum Games executive director Atsushi Inaba replied to the rumors in his official twitter profile:

Clear enough folks?

Personally, not being a great fan of the classic Metal Gear franchise we’ll take it as a good news. As you all know Rising will be a spin off quite out of the line and the fact you have ranks at the end of chapters make us think is more an arcade based on ranks in perfect Platinum Games style as the awesome Vanquish or Bayonetta.

Yes, we are hyped and ready to cut and slash everything!
