Comic-Con 2014: Middle Earth Shadow Of Mordor With Troy Baker

Comic-Con 2014: Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor with Troy Baker

Comic-Con-LogoI was lucky enough to talk to the cast and creators of Monlith’s upcoming action adventure RPG Middle Earth: Shadows of Mordor at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego. Myself and other members of media peppered Michael de Plater (Director of Design), Christian Cantamessa (Lead Writer), and Troy Baker (voice of Talion), with questions about the upcoming title which is set to launch on September 28th. Baker, who gamers might recognize from starring roles in The Last of Us and Bioshock: Infinite, had some interesting things to say about the voicing the game’s protagonist Talion and just how important Tolkien’s work is to nerds everywhere.

Comic-Con 2014: Charting a Course – Mass Effect Panel Coverage

Comic-Con-LogoAhh Mass Effect, how I love your sweet biotic embrace.

PAX East 2014: Secret Ponchos – Behind the Poncho!

RNA_PAX_2014I’ve been keeping my eye on Secret Ponchos since I first saw it at last year’s PAX: East and since that time the spaghetti-western-shooter has grown up and matured quite a bit… like a delicious cheese if you will. Initially designed for the PS3, Secret Ponchos has been rebuilt to run at 60FPS on the PS4 and looks prettier than ever with enhanced character models, lighting, and a ton of polish.

PAX East 2014: EVOLVE – Hunt or be Hunted

RNA_PAX_2014In EVOLVE four hunters, each with unique weapons and skills, race to bring down a monstrous behemoth that is constantly growing more deadly as the match progresses. Think of the game sort of like the movie Predator, but with the Predator constantly munching on steroids to get even more predator-y.
