Dino Crisis is a Survival horror series ahead of its time and needed a desperate revival. There is a lot of Online movement who wanted this game resurrected. The demand started the moment the Resident Evil trilogy got their respective remakes. The first two games of the series are Masterpieces. However, it was Dead on Arrival in the third game due to a poor choice. Capcom took a chance by making a century-time Skip. They killed off the series poster girl, Regina, and making matters worse, the opponents of Dino Crisis 3 are human dinosaur hybrids, and the game’s setting is in outer space. Capcom took away the horror and turned it into a dull sci-fi action shooter. They replaced Regina and Dylan with a pair of charismatic vacuums whose names I can’t quite remember—making it an Xbox exclusive damaged it even more.
Loco Players, a game development studio from Spain, has launched their crowdfunding campaign for their first-person survival horror title Goner, coming to PC.
My first exposure to my newest interview subject’s work came from the late 80s to the early 90s. I saw Stuart Pankin on both HBO’s Not Necessarily The News, where he played anchorman Bob Charles and many other characters, and ABC’s Dinosaurs, where he provided the voice of Earl Sinclair. As I grew older, I would see Stuart Pankin in movies like Love At Stake and Arachnophobia, and find him to be a very funny talent. My friend and former interview subject Kim Hopkins, who worked with Stuart in The Hollywood Knights, suggested Mr. Pankin to me as a potential interview subject and helped to connect us on social media. I spoke to Stuart on Monday, July 27th, and I hope you all enjoy getting to know him.
Director J.P. Bayona has said repeatedly he wants to take the Jurassic franchise in a different direction with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and at this point he has little choice. Until now, every movie in the series has followed the same structure: people get stuck on an island, dinosaurs hunt them, they freak out. Jurassic World was able to ride a nostalgia wave to make the well-worn plot feel a BIT fresh, but that trick won’t work twice.
Uncork’d Entertainment has released the first clip from their upcoming crazy thriller The Jurassic Games, best described as The Running Man with dinosaurs in it. In the movie, a wrongfully imprisoned man is sentenced with nine other criminals to play the titular virtual reality game as punishment (yeah, I wish the dinos were really there too, but the “computer” excuse is basically to cover the minimal CGI budget).
Mix The Running Man with dinosaurs (why not?) and you’d have something like The Jurassic Games, Uncork’d Entertainment’s latest, scheduled for release this June. A wrongfully imprisoned man is sentenced with nine other criminals to play the titular game as punishment, which is also broadcast as entertainment for the bread-and-circuses demanding masses.
Did you ever think about extracting dinosaur DNA from amber and creating your own island theme park full of dinosaurs? Of course not, because everybody knows by now what a bad idea that is (except for the characters from Jurassic World). The next best thing would be a fake dinosaur park created in virtual reality — and Snail Games’ new ARK Park provides just that.
Following on from an announcement several months ago and a teaser trailer that released recently, more details have emerged about the upcoming Jurassic World Evolution. The development team have put out a new video that showcases several bits of gameplay as well as explaining how the parks will work.
Stegosaurs were plant eaters, but they were far from the passive victims of predatory dinosaurs. Scientists have recently uncovered fossil evidence of one allosaur who got too close to a stegosaur’s unusually flexible spiked tail and didn’t live to regret it. At least not long.
For longer than we can remember, there has been much debate about whether or not a dinosaur mode will ever feature in a Battlefield game. Swedish developer Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment AB (or DICE) certainly enjoyed dropping various hints in Battlefield 3… So what should we make of this new finding – HyperText Markup Language (HTML) extracted from Battlelog that contains an unquestionable nod to our primordial predecessors?(more…)
I’m calling it right now: Primal Carnage is going to be the greatest game ever made. It’s a PC only online class-based shooter that pits humans against a team of playable dinosaurs. That’s pretty much all you need to know. Just watch the trailer and join me in my excitement.
