Before THQ bit the dust and went ultra-bankrupt, it was a publishing giant. It had numerous titles underneath its belt, and the future looked good. It also had a bin full of cancelled games, including one detective game with a supernatural edge to it that was being developed by People Can Fly back in 2006.
The one Microsoft title that’s conspicuously absent from the list of launch titles is the game that helped the Xbox 360 sell so many consoles in the first place; Gears of War. Many fans are wondering just where that next-gen Gears of War is. Nowhere at the moment, according to Microsoft’s Phil Spencer.
The former creative director of People Can Fly, Adrian Chmielarz, has caused a twitter firestorm to erupt after posting tweets claiming that the PlayStation 4 is 50% more powerful than the Xbox One.
According to investment company, Cowen and Company, the two big hitting titles from last month are both failing to gain traction at retail and as such they expect them both to miss their sales targets.
Fan favourite Damon Baird, the blonde-haired snarky and least overtly muscular member of Gears of War’s Delta squad has always stood on the side-lines, cracking wise, the narrative focusing mostly on Marcus Fenix and his chest-bumping bromance with the increasingly sullen Dom Santiago. That changes with Gears of War: Judgment, which places Baird squarely in the spotlight.
GoW is out this month, giving you the chance to be a muscly hero, and absolutely destroy the hell out of bad things. Here are two trailers.
Last week I was over in Poland at the People Can Fly studios for a bit of a hands on before Gears of War: Judgement is released later this month - and it was revealed at this event that a brand new multiplayer mode is being added to Gears of War: Judgement called Survival.
Possibly the most irritating aspect of the old Modern Warfare 3 title was the noobtube, or to give it the real name, the grenade launcher.
If there’s one Xbox 360 exclusive that I’m looking forward to this year, it’s Gears of War: Judgement. Of course, that’s because it’s the only Xbox 360 exclusive this year – but I’m actually keen to see what Bulletstorm and Painkiller developers People Can Fly does with the franchise in epic’s stead.
Hyperhidrosis is a a terribly embarrassing affliction; a medical condition which causes a person to sweat excessively and unpredictably. Epic games and Gears of War Judgement developer People Can Fly aim to add a little predictability to sweaty palms, making it so that it’s something that happens when you play their game.
Epic Games, having owned a large stake of the development studio People Can Fly, has bought the studio completely. People Can Fly, developers of Bulletstorm and Gears of War: Judgment, have worked together with Epic Games on numerous occasions in the last decade, most noticeably on titles such as the PC version of Gears of War.
Microsoft’s set to reveal details of its new Gears of War game, Judgement later today when it kicks off E3 with the first press conference.
As is becoming standard, details of that game have gotten out prior to its big reveal. Thanks to some early copies of GameInformer and the Epic forums, those details are now all over the internet.
Yeah, I know, we’re still almost a month away from that day, so let’s get on with the well-wishing already. We’re gamers, so we need to send a gaming related Christmas card, right? Except I don’t see any Call of Duty cards telling me “M3RRY XM4S U NOOB”, or a God of War card featuring Kratos ripping off good ol’ Saint Nicks fat head.
But hey, at least that other awesome game that came out earlier this year, Bulletstorm is feeling quite festive, even if it means covering a tree in explosive decorations and dead thugs. Slightly NSFW video after the jump.
Talk about your cross cultural screw up, you’ll remember earlier this year when Bulletstorm was released their was a small media storm about the huge amount of swearing in the game and whether it was really required or not.
At the time Epic came out and whole heartedly defended the developers, People Can Fly, and put it down to artistic merit etc etc…
Hey PC Gamers! Hereâ€™s something for you to look forward to that isnâ€™t a pared-down, terrible console port. Yeah, youâ€™re getting a new exclusive game in the form of Hard Reset, a gritty, cyberpunk â€œdark sci-fiâ€ FPS that fuses elements from genre staples like Blade Runner and The Matrix to give you a pure single player experience.
