Game Review

If there is one game I remember blowing me away with its art style from the minute I booted it up, it was Okami on the PS2. The gorgeous watercolor aesthetic, coupled with bringing beauty back to a dying world, left me speechless.

It's not often that the Japanese will develop an action title based upon the Book of Enoch, a non-canon Judeo-Christian text. When that game is done in a painterly water color style and is spearheaded by Takeyasu Sawaki, who was integral to Devil May Cry and Okami, well, we've got a game worth paying attention to.  UTV Ignition, the UK publishers behind El Shaddai was happy to let us know today that the game has completed production. It already has a Japanese release date of April 28, and the Western launch date shouldn't be too long after that, one would hope. I personally am surprised they are waiting so long to release the game, however. Most games go gold just about  a month before launch, and this baby is gold a whole three months early. Props to the Japanese work ethic, I suppose. Read More

Dead Space 2 "Ignition" Image Hints at Upcoming Announcement

Dead Space 2 fans have, over the last several months, been treated to some of the most interesting game marketing in recent memory. The ink blots, mysterious packages and cryptic trailer that have come to light have all hinted that something is seriously wrong with protagonist Isaac Clark, whether physically, psychologically or both. Now that some hearty gameplay footage has been devoured by fans and media alike, though, it's likely that Visceral will be revealing more and more about the game's new features. Cue the above image, which showed up on the Dead Space Facebook page today. "If you look closely you might find that there's a hint hidden in here about a big announcement we'll be making this week. Let the guessing begin!" reads the image's caption. That sounds like a challenge to us- let the guessing begin, indeed. *Cracks knuckles* Hit the jump for some really, really good guesses. Read More
