Just last week I was remarking that there was no chance in hell that Bioware’s next game would have anything to do with the huge offshoot in 2003 that was Command & Conquer: Generals. Well I am nearly shocked that this next game is, in fact, a sequel to the aforementioned game. Not because it was a bad game, mind you, in fact I played it at almost every LAN party for about 2 years. It was surprisingly well-balanced and fun. No, I was surprised because the C&C fanbase rebuked the game so hard back in the day.
The Spike TV Video Game Awards (VGAs) aren’t taken entirely too seriously by the video game industry. Its not much surprise for why when you see something like this. I guess this category is analogous with such prestigious categories as “Most Hype” or “Spent Most in Marketing”. Hit the jump for more.
Cliff Blesinski (a.k.a. CliffyB) is not a man you take lightly. When Dude Huge says that Epic’s next game will be a “entirely new, fresh experience,” then you know its on.
For the last few years Epic Games has had a strategy of releasing several new franchises that it would be able to build upon in the long-term. This led to games like Shadow Complex, Bulletstorm and Infinity Blade. The smart money says that with Epic’s latest track record, there will likely be another franchise to add to that list with this Saturday’s announcement at the Spike TV Video Game Awards (VGAs).
For those of us who like to see occasional games without a “2” or even “3” joined to the end of the name, its great news. Hit the link for the teaser video:
I’m not really sure what this game will be about, but The Last of Us has posted a teaser trailer to their PS3-exclusive title. The game will be previewed at this week’s Spike TV Video Game Awards (VGAs), but I’m not entirely sure if they will be showing more or just this…thing. Hit the jump for the video, very cryptic….
There’s been some speculation around what EA and Bioware are teaming up to do next, but a recent domain registration for around a dozen different names has everyone thinking the next game is going to be called “Command & Conquer: Alliances”, presumably taking place in the C&C universe.
