Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is 'the equivalent of four Hollywood movies' says Sledgehammer

Following the disappointment of Call of Duty: Ghosts, a game that retreaded the shooting franchise's familiar themes, Activision knows it must deliver a genuinely fresh blockbuster with this year's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Its development studio Sledgehammer Games is viewed as wielding an opportunity to try something that feels original, without stepping away from the play-style that has made Call of Duty one of the most successful game series' of all time. Sledgehammer, formed in 2009, has been given three years and ample resources to do the job. The team was founded by some of the senior creators behind sci-fi horror shooter Dead Space, and is made up of 225 people from studios as diverse as Valve, Naughty Dog and Crystal Dynamics. According to co-founder Michael Condrey,...

It's time to stop caring about new IP (just because it's new IP)

The term you hear thrown around is "new IP," or intellectual property. The launch of a new franchise, or the beginnings of a series that may do new things in the world of gaming. Watch Dogs is here, and it's time to realize that "new IP" isn't always synonymous with innovation. New games won’t always feel fresh, and games in existing franchises aren’t destined to be boring retreads of things we’ve already played. Like so many things in life, it all comes down to marketing. A good day to cash in This devotion to franchise titles isn't unique to games. The script for Die Hard with a Vengeance was originally called Simon Says and was supposed to be a star vehicle for Brandon Lee. Lee was tragically killed during the filming of The Crow, but Simon Says was nearly purchased to be...

DualShock 4 buyers test old games to create compatibility list

With DualShock 4 controllers now appearing on retail shelves, gamers are getting to grips with figuring out which PlayStation 3 games work with the new controller. A Reddit thread has been opened to handle the issue, offering an initial list of games. Users are being invited to add to the list. "I just got my DualShock 4 today, and have noticed some games work, and some don't," wrote thread organizer Lapwner. "So, let's try to create a list so people can see which games work and which games don't. Note that the motion sensing does not work, so even though some games work with the controller, if they are reliant on the motion sensing, then they probably aren't worth playing it with." The current list of compatible games includes: Working Call of Duty (MW2, MW3, Black Ops, Black Ops...

Horror director John Carpenter loves video games

John Carpenter is a noted film-maker whose work includes notable classics like Halloween, Escape from New York, Christine and Big Trouble in Little China. He's also a video game fan, who'd very much like to make a game of his own. "I'd love to work on an original video game," said Carpenter, in an interview with Giant Bomb. "Maybe the opportunity will present itself." Carpenter has dabbled with games in the past, narrating Fear 3, for example. But mostly, his involvement has been personal entertainment. "My son got me interested in console video games," he said. "The first game I remember playing obsessively was Sonic the Hedgehog ... I have many favorite games. Borderlands 2 is spectacular. I love BioShock, the Dead Space series, The Last of Us..." Horror has been a large part of...

At Comic-Con, optimism for future of video game movies

That was the theme of a panel today at Comic-Con, that asked whether we are emerging into a "golden age" of video game movies. The panel featured representatives working on movie projects including Agent 47, Mortal Kombat, Deus Ex, Dead Space and Need For Speed. They said that poorly scripted films, like Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li (pictured above) should no longer be the norm. One indicator of impending change, according to various speakers on 'Video Games to Movies: Is the Golden Age Upon Us?,' is that Hollywood execs understand video games much more intimately than in the past. "What happened with comic books in the past is going to happen with video games," said Adrian Askarieh, producer of the forthcoming Agent 47, and of the much-maligned Hitman movie (2007). "People...

Dead Space Plasma Cutter replica uses lasers to burn through wood, plastic

Laser-Gadgets founder and crafter Patrick Priebe created a low-level working replica of Dead Space's Plasma Cutter. Priebe, whose previous works include an Iron Man gauntlet, laser tool and flame glove, demonstrates the Plasma Cutter's power to burn through wood and plastic in the video above. According to Gizmag, the homemade item uses three 30-milliwatt green lasers to aim and another two 1,500 milliwatt blue lasers to burn through objects. It weighs in at about 4.4 lbs and requires one 18650 and three 14500 lithium-ion batteries to run. Priebe does not provide a tutorial on how he created the Plasma Cutter, a project that apparently took around 200 hours to build, but will sell it for the right price.
