3D Realms Closes Down, Duke Nukem Goes Bust

3D Realms Closes Down, Duke Nukem Goes Bust 50°
304w ago - Founded in 1987, the firm popularized the concept of shareware gaming and published the seminal Duke Nukem and Wolfenstein 3D first-person shooters.

The company was working on a follow-up title, Duke Nukem Forever, which after being in development for 12 years has become the object of industry derision.

Publisher, Take-Two says it will no longer fund development of the game but retains rights to the title.

"We can confirm that our relationship with 3D Realms for Duke Nukem Forever was a publishing arrangement, which did not include ongoing funds for development of the title," said Take-Two's Alan Lewis in a statement.

There has been no official comment from 3D Realms, other than a forum posting from the company's webmaster, Joe Siegler, who said: "It's not a marketing thing. It's true. I have nothing further to say at this time."

Other companies with links to 3D Realms or the Duke Nukem series were quick to distance themselves.

In a posting on Twitter, Apogee Software said it was "officially not affected by the situation at 3DRealms".

"Development of the Duke Nukem Trilogy is continuing as planned and further announcements about upcoming games will be made in the near future," the statement added.

InFamous Goes Gold, Another PS3 Killer Game is Upon Us?

InFamous Goes Gold, Another PS3 Killer Game is Upon Us? 100°
307w ago - According to the PlayStation Blog today, InFamous has now gone gold.

In just over a month (May 26th, 2009) the PS3 will launch another big console exclusive in Sucker Punch Products third person shooter inFamous.

This coming just a few months after the release of Killzone 2 will leave many Sony fans asking for the first time since the PS3's release, "What game should I play?"

So why might InFamous be a killer game?

It is Crackdown meets Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. The games setting takes you to Empire City, a setting ravaged by a massive explosion supposedly caused by Cole McGrath, the character you play. You are free to wander the Empire City ala Crackdown only you have badass powers comparable to Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

Your powers include shooting electricity at your enemies, forming and electrical shield to repel foes and their weapons and creating electrical grenades that are thrown and explode in similar fashion to plasma grenades in Halo. No more linear levels like those found in Force Unleashed which should result in a more creative use of your powers.

InFamous may not be as simple and mindless as it sounds though as it contains its own RPG like element in...

Patch 3.1 introduces many new features to WoW; Dual talent specs, which allow players to swap between two different roles. Many new UI improvements are being introduced, including a re-vamped 'Looking For Group' system.

Players can also take part in the Argent Tournament, a new jousting contest with rich rewards, a new system which Blizzard promises will bring more to the game at a later date.

Another massive improvement to the WoW, one which fans have been crying out for almost since the game launched, is dungeon maps. It's only for Wrath of the Lich King maps so far, but it will be a great help to traversing some of the more complicated dungeons.

Warhawk Command Center Goes Live in PlayStation Home Today

Warhawk Command Center Goes Live in PlayStation Home Today 50°
314w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell shared news of a Warhawk Command Center PlayStation Home walkthrough video as follows:

A couple days ago I visited with Incognito studio director Dylan Jobe about the Warhawk space that launches today in PlayStation Home.

Dylan was nice enough to walk us through the Warhawk Command Center, and specifically through the Sand Table where you can lay out strategies for all Warhawk maps. It's all really slick, and Dylan goes into some great detail about how it all works.

Also, starting today you can purchase Warhawk for $19.99 on the PlayStation Store (that's $10 off!) for two weeks, ending on March 11. Individual Warhawk Booster packs are dropping down to $4.99, and the Booster Combo (all three individual Booster packs) drops to $9.99.





But remember, the special Warhawk pricing ends on March 11, so be quick about it!
