Mad Max

Mad Max [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Somebody fucked up. This should have been a no-brainer. All you had to do was not mess with the tried-and-true control scheme and free-flow combat that has been well established by Arkham and its ilk for the last decade... Why, oh why, did someone decide they knew better for the control layout and timing during combat? -- That said, the car and world are worth the trip.

The Pros: 

+Visually stunning
+Satisfying car-building and driving

The Cons: 

-Obnoxious control scheme
-Poorly conceived combat system
-Frustrating timing issues Rating : 

Anticipation and hype are the sharpest of double-edged swords. Unfortunately, the modern PR form wield their power haphazardly with zero regard for the public that they are supposed to be representing. Such begins the tale of Mad Max, Avalanche Studios and WB Games joint venture to ride the tails of one of the best movies to come out this year; heck maybe in the last decade.

Mad Max vs. Metal Gear Solid V on September 1st!

Today seems all about the head-to-head! Not only did Unity fire back at Unreal going free today, but it looks like both Mad Max and Metal Gear are looking to stake a claim on September the first!

Avalanche Studios Teases First In-Game Image Of Mad Max Video Game [Rumor]

This year is poised to deliver some amazing debuts through the arrival of the next-gen consoles from Sony and Microsoft. We may be privy to getting a small taste of what’s to come through Sony’s press conference next week, which will likely unveil the new PlayStation, but developers are finally beginning to drop some megabomb teases on us.

Team Bondi (L.A. Noire dev) May Be Bought By A Fellow Aussie Game Studio

Normally when a video game is released and it ends up being a hit both commercially and critically it’s good times all around for everyone involved.  After spending two or three years working on a video game it’s always nice for a studio to see people enjoy their work and subsequently take a much deserved break before moving on to the next project at hand. But things are far from being rosy for L.A. Noire developer Team Bondi. Instead of reaping the rewards L.A. Noire has had the studio now finds itself in a position where it may be absorbed by a much larger Aussie based studio.

The developer of the Mad Max video game could be....

Back in April, the rumor sprung that developer Avalanche Studios (Just Cause 1 & 2) would next be working on a game adaptation for a major Hollywood sci-fi film set for a 2012 release.  Given the gamut of sci-fi blockbusters that Hollywood pushes out, there were definitely a few  possible options.  Some thought that Avalanche was perhaps tackling the Battleship: The Movie video game while others hoped that a Star Trek project was in the works.

Mad Max 4 is finally going to happen

After a few bumps in the road we’re finally getting another installment in the widely popular post-apocalyptic vehicular mayhem that is Mad Max.  Now this isn’t a false start like was the case a few years ago when production was ready to being on Mad Max: Fury Road once again starring Mel Gibson, and reportedly Heath Ledger in the role of his son, but was shortly shuttered after the shooting location of Namibia became a bit too unsafe due to terrorist issues.
