I think it'd be funny if they just tweaked one or two things and rereleased it as a parody. Leave the gameplay the same, but have Brian Blessed as the announcer.

In case you may have missed it, Chris Huelsbeck's Turrican Soundtrack Anthology came out last month, featuring remastered tunes from the series. http://chrishuelsbeck.bandcamp.com/album/turrican-soundtrack-anthology-vol-1

Yeah... made me sad when I saw that. What with them talking about redoing Majora's Mask...

Okay, Spike's VGX show is going on and we're getting a number of game announcements along with it. Such as:


*Telltale announcing their next game- Tales from the Borderlands. Yep, an adventure game series based on Gearbox's Borderlands.

*Tomb Raider gets a port to the XB1 and PS4.

*Wait a sec. Denver hosted the Donkey Kong World Championships this year? And we have a bar/arcade downtown? How did I not know this?

*Tim Schaefer appears to promote Broken Age. BTW- Elijah Woods is playing the voice of the male character in the game.  (Which he tweeted about actually, but hey, I missed it.)

*Surprise announcement- A new game based on Game of Thrones. This time from Telltale. Again. They're going to be busy next year. (And Cliffy B from Epic Games notes that the game better have interactive incest or else it'll be boycotted.)

First Project Eternity trailer, now called Pillars of Eternity.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/HKoDTzea79Y?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;rel=0" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/HKoDTzea79Y?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;rel=0</a>

Looks pretty awesome.  Baldur's Gate HD was fun, but I'm excited for a new story and the art in this game looks great.

Hey Variety of Cells did you see/hear about No Mans Sky? It's a really interesting looking procedural generated space exploration game, I thought about you when I saw it because I know your into the space genre (if you can call it that). It looks extremely ambitious and if they succeed in development it will be amazing, not Star Citizen amazing but still amazing.

You mean this video?

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/RRpDn5qPp3s" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/RRpDn5qPp3s</a>

I did see that.  Looks pretty awesome.  Like a sort of minecraft meets space exploration.  I like the art style a lot too.

But I have a whole bunch of questions about it.  I hear it's supposed to be an mmo sort of deal, where once you discover something and have the game proceduraly generate it, it will be saved and explorable by other people.  But won't the amount of data expand pretty quickly?  Also, what will you be able to do in the game?  Space dogfights are obviously in the game, but what will you be able to do on planets?  Needless to say I'll be keeping an eye on it.

Has me interested.  I want to see some more gameplay but I like that it seems story driven and less action game with one liners thrown in like most games based on cartoons.  Comedy works much better when it's not repeated over and over.

I hope the South Park game is great, it has been delayed many times and a lot of people quite during development, both of witch are usually bad signs. It's been years since I've been into South Park but I still appreciate the humor and i hope the game reflects that.

This is probably shaping up to be the most accurate looking one so far.   The polygon based ones seemed to look off a bit.
