PAX East 2011

Xbox Live Enforcement

By: Dennis Scimeca

This was my first Xbox Live Enforcement panel, and I never would have thought that a room full of gamers, a lot of whom were undoubtedly guilty of breaking many of the Xbox Live Terms of Service, would be so happy at a panel held by the men who doled out their punishment when appropriate. The audience laughter and applause was some of the loudest I've heard at an Expo panel thus far. Perhaps, as Stephen “Stepto” Toulouse noted, it was just that the panel wasn't being held on the last day of the Expo as was traditional, when everyone was hung over from partying the night before.

The Walking Dead Video Game: Robert Kirkman Speaks

Quickly becoming a cross-media pop-culture phenom, we learned last month that The Walking Dead would be making the inevitable jump to video games. Now, Robert Kirkman, creator of the original comic book and the highly-popular TV series has dropped some details on the upcoming shambling-shooter of a game. Set for a release this Fall to coincide with the return of the TV series for its second season, Telltale Games, best known for adventure games like Sam & Max and the recent Back to the Future, will soon release The Walking Dead as an episodic game, running multi-platform. In an interesting twist, the game will actually adhere to the canon of the comic series, rather than the acclaimed TV series on which it's tentpolled. While no substantive details have been released about the game, Kirkman does make some promises about where it's heading. Hint: It will involve a lot of gory messes.

With the release of Portal 2 inching ever close on April 18, Valve have announced that the game will feature an original song by indie rock group The National. This means that those of you who still go about your day-to-day activities hopelessly compelled to hum "Still Alive" may be in for yet another earworm when all's said and done with your next encounter with the cerebral, puzzle-filled FPS hybrid. This time, music enthusiasts and hipsters alike can rejoice as the post-punk, country-twanged group will be providing the irresistible tune which will likely define the game.

Rage Comic Series Announced

It seems that upcoming id Software first person shooter RAGE will be hitting another platform besides the consoles, PC, and Mac; this time on a comic book. Whetting the appetites of the PAX East atmosphere, Publisher Bethesda Softworks made the announcement of a partnership with Dark Horse Comics to adapt the post-apocalyptic frag-fest that will serve as the spiritual successor of classics like Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, and Quake. The three issue comic series will be a prequel to game's storyline in which an asteroid-devastated Earth in the near future has become a horrid wasteland under the tyrannical control of a global military dictatorship called The Authority. The game's creative director Tim Willits is on board the comic, with writer Arvid Nelson (Rex Mundi) and penciller Andrea Mutti (DMZ) in a storyline promising "a new twist" on the typical futuristic survival drama. Check out the full promotional image below.
