Sky Pirates of Neo Terra and the One Million Facebook Likes

The good folks at Vancouver based social and mobile game developer, Fathom Interactive, recently celebrated their popular title, Sky Pirates of Neo Terra receiving one million likes on their Facebook page.  They did so, of course, by throwing a party, and Shogun Gamer was there for the partying to be had in strides!

Finding Victory In Video Games

In the middle of a long brick-walled office, Samarth Chandola sits behind a desk. A guitar lays on top, next to a picture – the frame reads “In Loving Memory.” It's a picture of himself.

Link to the Past Receives a Sequel [Nintendo Direct]

This morning Nintendo resumed their new trend of direct-to-consumer release information via another installment of their “Nintendo Direct” series. Basically a online webcast in the vein of a press conference that all fans of Nintendo can join online. This video detailed Nintendo’s plans moving forwards for the Nintendo 3DS, year of Luigi, and the Wii U. Why is another Nintendo Direct worth writing about? Well, because this one featured information about a new Zelda game and Earthbound’s plans to come to NA.

Next Wave Of Projects From Minority Media Detailed

One of my favorite new developers in the games industry could be keeping themselves busy for quite some time based on some preliminary details that have just surfaced. 

After starting off strong and wowing gamers, and the industry alike, with the release of Papo & Yo last year on the PlayStation Network, the team at Minority Media are hard at work on several new projects which once again maintain the mantra of originality the studio has become known for.

Indie Love - East Side Games

Vancouver’s East Side Games launched themselves from the arguably inauspicious beginnings of Pot Farm to become a stable, successful, and growing indie shop currently approaching the ripe old age of two. Their success is owed partially to an experienced management team, partially to the company culture that empowers decisions at all levels of the organization, and (I think you’ll agree) more than a little to the moxie from passionate game developers like Josh Nilson, COO of East Side Games and the person providing the answers to our questions.

 

Pacific Rim To Receive Video Game Treatment

Deep inside us I think we all desire to see a good game based upon a film like Man of Steel or Iron Man 3, and thankfully one upcoming film which has the geek world buzzing is actually receiving the video game treatment.

If you saw the Pacific Rim trailer and thought “wow, that would be a kick-ass video game” then your wish has been granted as such a thing is in the works.  Announced today by Legendary Pictures, Pacific Rim will be adapted into a series of video games for both the consoles and PC. 

Republique Surfaces Again With Graphical Refinements [Video/Screens]

If you’ve been wondering where Republique, the new stealth-action game from indie studio Camouflaj, has been then here’s a rather major update for you.  After successfully reaching its much needed Kickstarter goal in a brilliant last minute hurrah, the team at Camouflaj have been hard at work creating the dystopian world of the game which is now sporting a slightly different graphical look.

Disney Unveils The Imagination Driven Experience Of Disney Infinity

Today is one of the rare times I wish I could visit the offices of Activision brass as I’m sure the company is in a conniption fit over the reveal made by Disney today.  No, Disney didn’t go on yet another massive purchase spree along the lines of gobbling up Marvel and LucasFilm, but the house Mickey Mouse built did reveal a new game that essentially takes the Skylanders formula to the next level; hence Bobby Kotick is probably in full-on evil Sith Lord mode.

Nvidia Enters Handheld Arena With The Shield

The first true megaton of 2013 may have just occurred that either will end up being yet another turning point for the industry or will simply be the biggest blunder since the NGage.  To kick off CES 2013 with a true bang, Nvidia decided to do something I think none of us expected: a new handheld console from the firm was announced.

Industrial Toys Reveals iOS Based FPS Morning Star

Those within the core gamers camp may still look upon mobile based efforts with a small level of disdain since they often present watered down experiences.  There are certainly good mobile games out there, yet it’s clear that in some cases things are held back or that the overall experience would be much better with an actual control pad rather than tapping a series of touch buttons on a small screen.
