Approximately 31 days ago, well I guess that would be “exactly”, but whatever; a month ago Precursor Games dropped the video gaming bomb that they were resuscitating the long-awaited Eternal Darkness GameCube sequel under the name, Shadow of the Eternals, which followed with this stellar game trailer. Precursor went the route of a Kickstarter campaign in a courageous attempt to crowdfund $1.5M to get the sequel out of a financial hope and into developmental reality. Today, Precursor CEO Paul Caporicci released a disappointing statement that the Kickstarter campaign would be pulled since they only raised 1/5 of the funds needed. But hold up: there may still be hope for the Eternal Darkness sequel. You just have to hit the link for the details, because we’re cool like that.
It’s got the hype. It’s got the looks. It’s got the edgy trailer. Could The Last of Us be the game we want it to be? We’ll start to find out this June 14th.
Back on April 3rd, which seems like a long time ago (this is our 100th post, believe it or not!), we published an amazing trailer for Naught Dog’s upcoming adventure game, “The Last of Us“, which may look like a new Uncharted, but according to the developers, it’s quite different. Not like that would be a bad thing, but you know what I mean. Looking ahead to the near future, “The Last of Us” will hit store shelves on June 14th, and will be an exclusive title for the PS3; sorry Xbox’ers. Like you needed more depressing news after Monday’s debacle? Naughty Dog has released brand new demo discs to many of the latest news outlets, which means savory new, HD game play footage that you absolutely must-see. Did I mention the game play video is more than 15 minutes long? You’re welcome.
This Monday a new crowdfund will launch from the hands of some of the original creators of the epic, survival-horror GameCube game, Eternal Darkness, with the hopes that they will be able to fund raise or “crowdfund”, enough cash to build what the entire fan base has been aching for since 2002: an Eternal Darkness sequel. The good news is that this does not appear to be fake, as the creator’s have formed a new, legalized development company called Precursor games, and they’ve already published a sneak peak to the proposed sequel, which will be called “Shadow of the Eternals”. Hit the link below for the official trailer, and more info on this exciting new crowdfund!
As I’ve stated on a few occasions here at SQ, I’m not a huge fan of zombie shows, games, movies, etc. I’m not saying I hate ’em, but I’m not borderline obsessed with the genre like much of ‘Merica is these days. I missed the Walking Dead season 2 finale recently (hell, I missed the entire season), and apparently I also missed the first game play trailer for the upcoming zombie and PS3 blockbuster, The Last of Us. To give you the bottom line up front: The Last of Us looks absolutely awesome. Everything about this trailer seems very well put together, and I realize it is only a trailer, but this looks like its going to be a must-buy. The acting and voice overs look and sound great, which is rare in a video game, and most importantly the game play looks phenomenal. I haven’t been excited about an upcoming game for a while now, but I’ve got June 14th (official release date) marked down on my calendar.
