Creative Assembly Unleashes Total War: Warhammer Cinematic!

Creative Assembly Unleashes Total War: Warhammer Cinematic!

Game Development is a rocky, uncertain, and complicated industry. It’s full of smaller studios that don’t have the funding to realize their goals, studios financially beholden to publishers that exert far too much pressure in terms of expectation, design philosophy, or punishing deadlines.

While the rise of indie developers like Mojang, the advent of studio-friendly publishers like Paradox and Devolver, and the normalization of crowd-funding have done a lot to improve the state of the market, we still regularly see lamentable events like the closing of veteran studios Maxis and Ensemble.

This is correct. This is how this should be.

 

It is therefore positively refreshing to see a long-standing studio with a reputation for excellence born from a long line of deep, intricate, amazingly detailed and beautiful games do well. It is doubly so to see that studio branch successfully into different genres, and do so with that same intricacy and attention-to-detail.

And it is almost too much to bear when that studio, who has made a name for itself with years of hard work, acquires an intellectual property that is ideally suited to their predilection to intricacy and authenticity.

Pixel Clicks Podcast #11 – Check this s*** out!

Hey you wonderful people, it’s time for the Pixel Clicks Podcast!

PCP is a gaming podcast in which Jordan, a gaming writer for Pixelated Geek, and his friends Cody, the ambassador of the PC master race, Shane, the one born of the good blood, and Sergio, the director and improve comedian, discuss the week in gaming news! Or at least try to.

This week the guys talk about new release Mortal Kombat X and the DLC controversy surrounding it, GTAV on PC breaking the record for most concurrent players for a non-Valve game, whether or not you should play Titan Souls, Guitar Hero Live being announced and if it can stand up against Rock Band 4, the trailer Star Wars Battlefront 3, and rumors for Mass Effect 4. It was a jam-packed week and the guys somehow manage not to dissect the new Star Wars and Batman v Superman trailers. Read On

Star Wars: Battlefront – DICE Developer Diary #1 – Game

There was a moment where I thought the last week might have inured me, tired me out, given me a tolerance to Star Wars news.

Then I caught a brief look at the render for the X-Wing in DICE’s first developer diary for Star Wars: Battlefront and the matter of whether or not I was over my Star Wars limit was quickly settled.

WonderCon 2015 has come and gone but that doesn’t mean the Comic Issues crew had all the fun!

The movie follows “ace” reporter Chase Carter (Jesse Metcalfe) as he tries to survive a zombie outbreak in a quarantine zone. Along the way he meets Crystal (Meghan Ory), a woman infected by the zombie virus who maintains her humanity through the use of a special medication. They are also joined by Maggie (Virginia Madsen), a mother who is on the brink of insanity. The trio band together and try to fight their way out of the dangerzone as Chase’s camerawoman, Jordan (Keegan Connor Tracy) tries to find a way to rescue them with the help of General Lyons (Dennis Haysbert). The movie contains twists and turns and is generally a delight to watch!
