Prototype delayed into 2009

Sometimes life is like a box of chocolates and you never know what you’re gonna get.  It seems like Sierra and Radical Entertainment are taking more time to fine tune their ambitious little project.  What was once an expected Fall 2008 release, is now a 2009 sighting instead.

To be honest, I’m very happy about this because the last gameplay video I was sent didn’t exactly motivate me to run to the end of the continent like Forrest Gump.  Hopefully with an extended window Radical Entertainment will be able to deliver on the scope of what Prototype was to be.

Ghostbusters The Video Game Screenshots

Slimer.  Gozer.  Venkman and Egon.  Who you gonna call?  Ghostbusters!  Sierra Enteraintment had a little portofolio showcase of sorts last week out in California highlighting their upcoming games and they shared a few tidbits of their show with me.  One such tidbit were new screenshots of Ghostbusters The Video Game.  Don’t cross the streams but you can view the screens!

Video: The Bourne Conspiracy

Fresh off the heels of the June 3rd release news for The Bourne Conspiracy, comes a pretty exciting new trailer featuring some of the hand-to-hand combat and shooting abilities in the game.  I have to say that I’m looking forward to kicking some ass with Jason Bourne after seeing this.  If High Moon Studios can pull it off then we may just have ourselves a new action franchise that actually rivals its movie counterpart.

Fiddy is Back with 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand

G, G, G…G-Unit!  Sierra Entertainment is bringing 50 Cent back to the game (literally) with 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand.  I’m one of the people who surprisingly enjoyed 50 Cent: Bulletproof.  I still play it on my PSP in fact.  The screenshots for the latest Fiddy joint look promising.

“We are taking this sequel to the next level with exciting combat and gunplay, new original music, great graphics and a new story,” said 50 Cent. “50 Cent: Blood on the Sand will have everything my fans are looking for in a 50 Cent game.”

The 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand video game will feature multi-player drop-in and drop-out co-op, interactive counter-kills, driving, and aerial combat. Following the success of the 2005 Spike TV Video Game Award winning Best Original Song, “We May Be Crazy” 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand will be packed with more exclusive unreleased music from 50 Cent and G-Unit.

“50 Cent and shooter fans everywhere came out to support 50 Cent in Bulletproof and made it a multi-million unit selling video game,” said Al Simone, senior vice president of Global Marketing for Sierra Entertainment. “Gamers will be excited that 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand provides the ultimate 50 Cent game experience.”

It drops this Fall so get ready to put the vitamin water down!
