Child of Eden

July 23rd, 2010 ThreeHeadedMonkey Posted in Playstation, Xbox 360 No Comments »

One of the coolest looking new games at the recent E3 show was Child of Eden. A spiritual successor to the seminal Rez, Child of Eden will allow players to interact with musical rhythms via Kinect.

As with Rez, players will come under attack from various surreal creatures which can then be shot, resulting in new beats and riffs being merged with the game’s music. This time around they will be able to aim with their arms thanks to Kinect’s motion detection. Standard controllers will also work, but it sounds like the experience is the perfect showpiece for Microsoft’s new peripheral.

Child of Eden is expected in 2011, for Xbox 360 and PS3.

May 23rd, 2010 ThreeHeadedMonkey Posted in Playstation, Sega, Sony, Wii, Xbox 360 No Comments »

Developer Dimps must have mislaid their speed boots. Sonic isn’t usually slow to arrive, but the forthcoming continuation of his 2D adventures has been pushed back to late 2010.

We can’t wait to get our hands on the new game, which will concentrate on Sonic alone and get back to the classic gameplay we know and love. The extra playable characters, that some regard as responsible for the decline of the series, have been dropped for this new episode.

It looks like the arcade version of Blazblue was a hit. Not only is it getting converted to PS3, but also to Xbox 360. Let’s hope the home versions are just as good as the arcade original, keeping the spectacular 2D fighting gameplay intact.
