The Saboteur

Open-World Environment - A scaled down version of Paris as an open world environment.
The Art of Sabotage – The player must use stealth tactics to remain undetected and gather his mission intel and underground clubs and cabarets. Master a variety of weapons, automobiles, and skills to sabotage enemy operations
Assassinations – Eliminate targets with stealth attacks, disguise, distractions, and explosives.
The Will to Fight – The city is split into smaller areas which react and change around you as you free it from Nazi oppression. Freed areas of Paris will go from a almost black and white color pallet to a more vibrant one, as you restore hope to the citizen of said area. It also marks the progression of your game and adds bits of the grandeur of Paris.

runaredlight!  said about 6 years ago:

The gameplay will revolve around a device, known as the TMD (Time Manipulation Device). It will be able to move a single object through the spectrum of time. It will be utilized both in classic FPS-style combat as a weapon and in Half-Life style puzzle solving. For instance, using the TMD's ''rewind'' function on a human opponent will send them into a ''placental'' state where they revert to an almost amoebic state before slowly dying. Examples of the device being used in puzzles involve sending a lock forward in time to watch it rust and crumble away, sending a broken bridge backwards to watch it return to a usable state, and sending a tree trunk forwards while standing on it as it grows to reach higher areas.

There are cross-overs on consoles with a few games anyway. So just assume that all of the above are PS3/X-Box 360/PC.

Divinity 2: Ego Draconis

*In Divinity 2 – Ego Draconis, players find themselves once again in Rivellon, a timeless world full of awe and magic, shattered and frightened by the apocalyptic wars of the past. No one knows why so many people had to give their lives. Everything seems to be over, but the peace was deceptive, for the demon has returned and the horror once again runs its course. *

As the story of Divinity 2 -- Ego Draconis unfolds, the player will discover new abilities and possibilities as they evolve into a legendary Dragon Lord. In addition, the player character's abilities can be steadily improved over the course of the game and specialized in specific areas. The world of Divinity 2 – Ego Draconis is filled with humans and fantasy creatures, each having special combat abilities. Players will need to use every skill, potion and hidden trick to their strategic advantage to reclaim the lands of Rivellon.

Fucking hell.

If you go to Lucasarts' site there's video of it.

They have built it on top of the original, so you can switch between new art and the original.

My faith in this company is totally restored. Here's hoping it's the first of a bunch of reissues.

CaptainFez  said about 6 years ago:

does grim fandango even need a remake though? it was already in 3d and pretty stunning anyway, i reckon.

Look at the video on the site. Exactly the same art, only better, if that makes sense. It's really an excellent effort, by the looks of it. Here we go:


I am so, so excited. This is the best news of E3, for me. Ships soon, I hope.

tinyman  said about 6 years ago:

Fat Princess. i think i may pick that up. with the help of a dozen buddies.

Darkest of Days

In Darkest of Days, players travel back and forth through the annals time to relive some mankind’s most dire hours, when human society was at its lowest points. By fighting through terrible events such as The Battle of Antietam, the bloodiest conflict of the Civil War, and the volcanic eruption in Pompeii in the year 79, the player attempts to save certain key individuals who were never meant to become involved in these truly monstrous events and thereby change human history for the better.

E3 2009: IGN PlayStation Team's E3 Wrap-Up
Sony impressed us at the show. Here's what we were talking about the most.
by Chris Roper

US, June 4, 2009 - E3 2009 was a great show all around, and Sony came out with its guns blazing. The announcement of the PSP go may have been lessened due to the news leaking early, but that doesn't mean that Sony didn't have a ton of stuff to announce and show at its conference and on the show floor.

The announcement of Final Fantasy XIV was a surprise to everyone in attendance, and the official unveiling of Gran Turismo 5 was a great treat for racing fans. The Last Guardian, Team ICO's latest, was also big news, and the first major public showings of God of War III and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves wowed show attendees. Oh, and don't forget about the Motion Controller demo...

But what were the most talked about games at the show for Sony's systems? Based on the conversations going on in the IGN War Room (the place where we stay up writing until 2am every day of the show), here are the most talked about PlayStation games at E3 2009 (listed in alphabetical order).

Final Fantasy XIV Online
As mentioned, this was a big surprise to everyone. Despite very little details on the game coming out of the show, the fact that it was announced before FF XIII has even shipped (not to mention Versus) was a shock to most people. Plus, it's Final Fantasy, so, you know...

God of War III
The return of Kratos will always be a big deal, but the fact that it's both his first appearance on the PlayStation 3 and the finale to what will likely be a fantastic trilogy (the first two are already classics) makes this one of the most anticipated titles at the show on any system. And who could resist talking about eviscerated intestines?

Gran Turismo 5
With close to 50 million units shipped, the Gran Turismo franchise is a big deal, even outside of gaming. The fifth full title has been in production for a long, long time now, so the fact that we finally got to see the game in action was a great thing. The fact that the amazing footage was all realtime made it even more talked about.

Gran Turismo PSP
Like GT5, Gran Turismo PSP was first mentioned when the PSP was fully unveiled way back in May of 2004. More than five years later, it finally made a reappearance. That fact right there is good enough to garner some chatter, but it also helps that the game looks to be a very good take on the console franchise.

Half-Minute Hero
With the big three all over E3, it can be hard for a smaller publisher to make an impact. XSEED brought the thunder, and it's called Half-Minute Hero. Here, you're an 8-bit hero and have 30 seconds to complete most quests. The battles move at light speed, you'll need to grind in record time, and the whole thing is pretty refreshing. We want -- NOW!

Heavy Rain
Heavy Rain had impressed us at a couple previous events already, and its unique gameplay, realistic visuals and dark themes already made it something to talk about. Its risqué showing at a breakout session this year though made it the talk of the War Room for a good bit during the show.

The Last Guardian
The official unveiling of Team ICO's third game would be a huge deal at any time, so it should come as no surprise that it made our list. The game's unique lead creature is of especially interesting design, as is the game's plot, timeline and possible tie-in with Team ICO's other work. We're excited, and apparently everyone else is too.

LittleBigPlanet PSP
Pretty much everyone with a pulse loved LittleBigPlanet when it hit the PlayStation 3, so being that the game has seemingly made a great move to the PSP is both relieving and good news. Stories about how well the transition works wound up makings the rounds in the room.

Modern Warfare 2
The original Modern Warfare (then preceded by the Call of Duty name) was a massive success in terms of both reception and sales. So it was no surprise that everyone would talk about what we'd see from the sequel, especially with its cryptic teaser trailers hitting before the show. And then when it looked to play like a Bond movie, we couldn't stop talking.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
Sony opened its press conference with a bang by showing the first public display of Uncharted 2's single-player gameplay, and oh boy did it impress everyone in attendance. We can't stop talking about how amazing the conference demo was, and then Naughty Dog gave us more at the booth. Wow.
