Battlefield 2142 has been officially confirmed. There were a lot of you that thoght it was some hoax. Nope. Later this year, we’ll be driving mechs, baby.
This amuses me greatly.
I’m well into Oblivion by now. I think another day or two should suffice, and then I can write a nice review for you. Probably by this weekend.
Rumor has it that we’re going to find out the final name for Nintendo’s new system this week. Satoru Iwata is scheduled to deliver a keynote at the GDC tomorrow, that is supposed to reveal some major developments. Whether the Revolution project gets a final retail name, or if Nintendo decides to stick with the hardware codename, we may find out tomorrow.
Another rumor from the GDC is that Microsoft may be offering cheap development kits for the Xbox 360. Cheap to the tune of a hundred bucks. That would open up the door for any small developer to begin designing 360 games. Wow. Obviously we wouldn’t suddenly get a dozen Ghost Recons or Fight Nights… games of that quality will often only come from experienced development houses. But we may end up with a dozen new geometry wars, simple independant games that pack tons of fun. Would be an interesting development, that’s for sure.
I caught V for Vendetta last Monday, and I really enjoyed it. I had never read the comic book, so I was able to go into the movie without the stigma of “this is what it should be like”. But I thought the movie was really well-executed. Nice style, great idea, and wonderful acting by Hugo Weaving. There’s a lot of symbolism in the movie, and a lot of theoretical politics, so be prepared for that. But what it presents is a ‘what-if’ vision of the future mixed with some great fantasy. I’m intrigued to pick up the comic now.
Today is my sister’s birthday. She’s 23 today. Wow, where does the time go? Anyway, Happy Birthday, sis!
I need to get back to Tamriel. There are some gates to Oblivion that need closing.
