Skate 2 screens released

Skate 2, slated for release in 2009,  continues EA’s take on the world of skateboarding by challenging gamers to revive the New San Vanelona skate scene by circumventing the city’s increased focus on protecting private property. 

The latest screenshots from the game were released last week and I’ve included them below.

New screens from The Godfather II

EA is currently working on the follow-up to their 2007 hit The Godfather The Game appropriately titled The Godfather II. The folks at EA Redwood Shores released a new batch of screenshots from the upcoming game today and it looks like the series is headed for a major makeover. I reviewed the original and felt it was a very good game with a comfortable control scheme, lots of depth but somewhat weak graphics. Here’s hoping that The Godfather II takes the best features from its older siblings and adds a much needed facelift.

Deadliest Catch coming to Xbox 360

Sig, Edgar and Norman Hansen, the three brothers whose dangerous crab fishing adventures are the centerpiece of Discovery Chanel’s “Deadliest Catch”, are banking on the show’s phenomenal success as they move to bring the real-life television show to videogame form with Deadliest Catch Alaskan Storm.

The project began in October 2005 when the Hansen brothers teamed up with developer Liquid Dragon Studios to begin putting the game together. Now, with newcomer publisher Greenwave onboard (no pun intended), Deadliest Catch Alaskan Storm is set for release in April of this year.

Whether the game will be a hit or not remains to be seen, but to their credit, both the Hansens and the team at Liquid Dragon have gone to great lengths to bring realism to the game with four real Bering Sea harbors and 34,000 miles of real Bering Sea coastline created from the United States Geological Survey along with “the best wave effects in a video game to date”.

The official game announcement video, hosted by Captain Sig Hansen himself, can be viewed at www.discovery.com/deadliestcatch and new videos, featuring Captains and crewmembers from the show, are promised to arrive every Tuesday until game launch.

I’ve included a few screenshots from the game below.

Any thoughts or comments?
