Games Announced, Dated, and Delayed

Zonk posted more than 8 years ago | from the year-finally-begins dept.

77

The year is finally picking up some steam, with new game announcements, ship dates confirmed, and delays expected. Besides the already announced Zelda delay, Nintendo actually has good news to offer. New Super Mario Bros. is slated for a May 7th release here in the states. Fallout 3 will not be at E3 this year, despite the highly anticipated nature of the game. Oblivion, Bethesda's upcoming RPG, doesn't quite have a release date yet. It should be coming out 'soon', though. NCSoft is apparently working on a dungeon crawler themselves, with the City of Heroes publisher announcing Dungeon Runners at the Taipei game show. For those of you who (like me) loved the title, there are sequels to F.E.A.R. on the way. They won't be carrying the stupid name, thankfully. There will also be a sequel to God of War, slated for release next February. Finally, for classic gaming fans, the GameTap service will be offering the Ultima series of games for play in the near future, probably around the same time that Street Fighter 2 will be on the Xbox 360 Arcade. Looks like we've got a 2006 worth looking forward to. Update: 02/22 20:18 GMT by Z : Changed the God of War information link to Gamasutra; Eurogamer pulled the info after legal threats from Sony.

Didn't the God of War guy just slam sequels less than a week ago?

Woot to even seeing the phrase "Fallout 3" mentioned, even if it won't be at E3.

Re:whaaaaat? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 8 years ago | (#14778100)

He slammed cutscenes too and almost all of God of War's story was told through (beautifully rendered)cutscenes. He made an instant classic though, so I'm sure (in his mind at least), he's justified to preach on high.

Quality Linux-Compatable titles? (0, Offtopic)

B5_geek (638928) | more than 8 years ago | (#14777706)

I have been making a habit of buying games that support Linux out of the box. NeverWinter Nights, Unreal Tourney, etc..

Considering how linux-centric this site is, would it be difficult to add the titles that are 'supposed' to work with linux in the summary?

Re:Quality Linux-Compatable titles? (1)

hal2814 (725639) | more than 8 years ago | (#14777877)

"Games Announced, Dated, and Delayed" has nothing to do with what platform they are running on. You'll notice that the only platform listed in the summary is the 360 but that's only to point out that the title (SFII) will be on the XBox Live Arcade. If they didn't mention that, it would look a bit silly since SFII is over 10 years old. Not to sound harsh or anything since I do enjoy not having to reboot just to play a game, but whether or not the game runs Linux is probably best left to another discussion.

Re:Quality Linux-Compatable titles? (0)

They did. After every linux-supporting title on that list, they put a clear note saying "*LINUX COMPATIBLE*".
Didn't you see it? Oh, no you didn't, because none of them will run on linux... half of them are for consoles, and the others are from developers with no previous interest in making linux ports (which is what it's come down to so far), IIRC.
I buy linux games too. There aren't enough of us to make a difference at this point, and I'm sufficiently enamoured with my DS to not be very bothered that linux gaming is weak and PC gaming in general is in a bit of a rut. Supreme Commander might get me interested again.

Ever since I found out about this project, it's the only upcoming game on my mind. As soon as preorders come up, I'm snagging one. TA is my all-time favorite game (even above X-COM!) and I've been frustrated ever since I lost the ability to run it natively.

Re:Quality Linux-Compatable titles? (1)

smbarbour (893880) | more than 8 years ago | (#14779398)

Considering that there has been notable tension between the developers and the publishers, I don't think it is a joke. If it were, you'd think the publishers would stop waiting for a game they knew wouldn't show up.

Nah, I'm sure they're just going to continue hiring people with no experience, not paying them, and then hiring new designers when those figure out the game's never going to see completion.

God of War Sequel (4, Funny)

steveo777 (183629) | more than 8 years ago | (#14777771)

God of War II. Game to include new features: More boobs, more blood, more boobs, more bodies, more boobs. Also, seeing as Kratos has slain basically every mythical creature in The Illiad and The Odyssey, you will now be up agains legions of Nintendogs and Pokemon. Borowing from Don Quixote, you will have to take down the evil windmills and kill random "sorcerers" to cleans the lands. Also, Mario will make an appearence for the GameCube version as Zues, God of Thunder.

Re:God of War Sequel (1)

steveo777 (183629) | more than 8 years ago | (#14778459)

I'd be more concerned about Church Ladie [danacarvey.net] . Besides, Kratos would expire in a fight versus God and Satan. It's like being stuck between two poles. Pure, unbridled evil darkness vs. Pure unbridled good light. He'd be frozen on one side and fried on the other. Besides, biblicaly speaking, those who have sinned cannot see God without being destroyed... Kratos may have a few stikes against him :).

Being a Christian who doens't like the idea of a game in which the whole point is to take on God shouldn't exactly appeal to me. But I also have a brain, therefore I can tell the difference between real life and a make-believe game. I think it would be cool to play a game where you tried to storm the gates of Heaven or Hell in a glorious battle. Of course, I'd be more inclined to storm Hell, but I'd eventually get around to conquering Heaven if the game let me.

That only works post-Jesus. Kratos is an ancient greek so he'd have to deal with the old testamentarian God that vaporizes entire cities, orders his followers to exterminate tribes and floods the Earth. At least he didn't destroy all the stars and demand that Jesus roll up some crap to make new stars...

Re:God of War Sequel (1)

Winterblink (575267) | more than 8 years ago | (#14778438)

Nah, the only enemy he hasn't defeated yet is: time. He'll be whisked away to a modern-day Liberty City, where Kratos must fight rival gangs through dozens of missions in order to rule the underworld. He'll be able to jack cars, slash tires from a distance with his blades, throw opponents for miles, and use any one of a few dozen melee weapons and guns while he evades police.

I'd buy it.

No release date for Oblivion? Tell that to stores. (1)

ivan256 (17499) | more than 8 years ago | (#14777906)

Oblivion, Bethesda's upcoming RPG, doesn't quite have a release date yet.

I recently recieved the following E-mail from Amazon:

We are pleased to report that the following item will ship
sooner than expected:

      "Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion Collector's Edition (DVD) [CD-ROM]"
        [DVD-ROM]


The new date listed in the order details is 3/20/2006.

Perhaps it's only the 360 version that doesn't have a date yet...

(stupid lameness filter doesn't recognize acronyms...)

Re:No release date for Oblivion? Tell that to stor (2, Informative)

ivan256 (17499) | more than 8 years ago | (#14778285)

That's silly Amazon crap. They have PC CD-ROM as the platform like where they'd put "PS2" or "GC" if it were for a console. That makes it so a game that comes out on DVD-ROM ends up having conflicting acronyms in the description. It looks right on the item page [amazon.com] , but it always looks screwy in the e-mail if you have it set to 'plain text'.

This item is particularly bad because "(DVD)" is part of the name, so you get "(DVD)" (title) "[CD-ROM]" (platform), "[DVD-ROM]" (media).

Dragon Runner (1)

guice (907163) | more than 8 years ago | (#14777920)

Please don't tell me Cryptic Studios is developing Dragon Runner? That would be so beneath them to create something with such an utterly blatant copy.

Re:Dragon Runner (1)

chrismcdirty (677039) | more than 8 years ago | (#14777989)

It said the "City of Heroes publisher", not "City of Heroes developer". You might be able to safely stop worrying, although NCSoft could still probably hire them for it. I would think they're probably busy with City of Heroes and Villains, but I don't know the size of their workforce. Although I do know that they've had Junior Programmer postings on their site for more than a year now. Maybe they're trying to develop some good talent from the ground up.

Re:Dragon Runner (1)

guice (907163) | more than 8 years ago | (#14778055)

Yeah, noticed it said publisher, but Cryptic Studies isn't a publishing company, so I figured they meant Developer. ;)

Looking over the sites talking about Dragon Runner and I couldn't find any connection to Cryptic Studios; so I have to question why was CoH even mentioned in the first place. The submitter must not be too keen on the seperations of developer vs publisher.

Re:Dragon Runner (2, Interesting)

chrismcdirty (677039) | more than 8 years ago | (#14778160)

They probably mentioned CoH since NCSoft has published (or planned to publish) a fair amount [playtr.com] of different [cityofheroes.com] MMOs [cityofvillains.com] in recent [guildwars.com] years [autoassault.com] , with CoH (arguably) being the most recognizable/successful.

Re:Dragon Runner (1)

guice (907163) | more than 8 years ago | (#14778425)

Oh, I get what the submitter meant. I got stuck on "with the CoH publisher" (implying a third party). I guess they meant was "as the CoH publisher". Yeah, I'm away of their arsenal of published games and small shack of developed games (Lineage, Lineage II). I see from a translation of the site NCSoft NA will be the developers of this game (well, that explains why it's so similar. ;)).

No Surprise on Fallout 3 (1)

Considering that Bethesda is finishing up Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, it's no surprise that their next project, Fallout 3, is not going to be at E3. In fact, last time I checked, it was still in pre-production. It is hard to make a demo booth if you don't even have an alpha build.

Cranking up the rumor mill (4, Informative)

Zigg (64962) | more than 8 years ago | (#14778066)

Might as well pitch this rumor here too.

May 7 is a Sunday. Nintendo doesn't release games on Sundays all that often. One of the more recent big titles they did release on a Sunday was Super Mario 64 DS — as a launch title for the original Nintendo DS.

Draw your own conclusions. I have, and hope to get a DS Lite on May 7.

Re:Cranking up the rumor mill (1)

kevin.fowler (915964) | more than 8 years ago | (#14778111)

I just finally bought a GBA... but I may have to swallow my pride and man up for a DS. I need my fix of good side-scrolling mario action. I haven't sincerely liked one of them since Mario World.

Re:Cranking up the rumor mill (2, Informative)

Zigg (64962) | more than 8 years ago | (#14779297)

Heh. Definitely at least hold out for the Lite -- it sounds like it's worlds better than the original. Just perhaps more fragile... of course, for Nintendo, fragile means "like any other piece of hardware". My classic DS has parking lot marks on it and still works great. :)

Re:Cranking up the rumor mill (2, Insightful)

7Prime (871679) | more than 8 years ago | (#14779606)

World's Better? It looks exactly the same, just lighter.

I just recently got a DS, and my ONLY complaint with the system is its ergonomics. It's like if you put shoulder buttons on an NES controller! After about 5 minutes on MarioKart DS, my right hand starts to fall asleep. This is due to the shape of the controller (completely rectangular), not the size or weight. The size and weight are perfect the way they are, it's no heavier than a GameCube controller or a DualShock 2, and the size seems just fine to me. I also have had absolutely no complaints about the screen brightness. The Lite seems like a total waste. Now, if they re-shaped it to be more comfortable to hold, I'd buy one without a second thought.

Re:Cranking up the rumor mill (1)

Zigg (64962) | more than 8 years ago | (#14786690)

Nope, besides being lighter and better-engineered (the lid closes shut firmly rather than smacking up against the main unit like the classic DS), the screen also has four levels of brightness and has, as far as hands-on reports are saying, much better color. Try here for the brightness [n-sider.com] and here for the color. [n-sider.com] . And here for a hands-on [1up.com] in-store. Battery life is also rumored to be better.

I like my classic DS, but there's no denying it was a bit of a rush job from the development model seen at E3 2004 to what hit the shelves that November.

Re:Cranking up the rumor mill (1)

7Prime (871679) | more than 8 years ago | (#14779661)

Agreed. There really haven't been any "normal" side-scrolling Mario games since Mario World. Although Castlevania has some good titles. Oh, and I hear that there's this small, unknown series called Metroid... supposed to have some good scrollers ;)

Re:Cranking up the rumor mill (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 8 years ago | (#14784724)

I though Yoshi's Island, which was basically Mario World 2, was amazing, and very much in the spirit of the side scrolling Marios. I'll even go so far as to call it my second-favorite in the series, after Mario 3.

Re:Cranking up the rumor mill (1)

7Prime (871679) | more than 8 years ago | (#14789213)

Sure, it was a great game, but it's a bit more of a Mario spin-off series, of which there are many. The fact that you don't play as Mario, alone, sorta makes it a non-canon game. It is to the Mario series as Final Fantasy Tactics is to the FF series: great game, but not part of the standard set, due to large departures in basic gameplay.

Thanks for mentioning what was explicitly stated in TFA:

Many people have pointed out that May 7 is a Sunday, but nearly every other Nintendo title is always released on a Tuesday. What gives? Can't help but notice that Sunday is the preferred day for hardware launches, and May 7 -- just before E3 -- might be an opportune time to have the DS Lite take its bow.

Now if only we could get some copies of Animal Crossing to stay on shelves for more than 2 hours, I might finally buy myself a DS!

I didnt think it was to short at all. F.E.A.R. was (in my opinion) the best FPS to come out since Half Life 2. Graphics were great, A.I. was actually pretty good and the weapon selection was above average. Hitting a bad guy with a nail gun and having him stuck to a wall never lost the fun to me. Heck, I even thought the intro was awesome and I usually don't care for those. I liked Doom3 but after the 40th time I walked into a room and a creature jumped out on me I started to just be annoyed. F.E.A.R. played the scare angle perfectly, I don't think I have ever been afraid of a little girl before :) . I am actually excited about this sequel

I don't mind a game getting pushed back by a few months to work out the bugs. What I really hate is the way media is released based on what is 'hot' at the moment. Perhaps it's that they realize the quality is not exactly up to snuff on the majority of what is released.

I just want them to hurry up and secure a US release for Mother 3! I'd rather not have to play a fan-sub ROM two years later, though I will if I have to!

Earthbound: one of the greatest games ever made.

Nintendo has stated that it has no plans to bring Mother 3 outside of Japan.
