Is Gran Turismo 5 becoming the new Duke Nukem Forever? With the latest delay, it's getting there. Plus, Deepak Chopra is about to become a mad crazy video game designer, the protagonist of Call of Duty Black Ops has a stressful job, Tara is addicted to Minecraft, and a DTOID level of Super Meat Boy?!
It's the first Friday of the New Year, and doesn't it feel great? It's hard to believe that at the start of the week, there was almost nothing worth reporting about -- now we've been covered in a veritable avalanche of video-game related journalism. CES was obviously the big news in all things consumer electronics this week, and we've got a few quick hits that you need to know about (most noticeably, an amazing portable gaming machine). We're also getting closer to the first big releases of the year, including Dtoid favorite Marvel vs Capcom 3. Nick Chester has had a hand on it for a few weeks now, and we've got the gameplay footage and costumes to prove it. As if that wasn't enough, Capcom went and revealed 2 more characters for the roster, although we kinda saw that coming. Oh, and did you hear that there's a Playstation Phone coming? Well now we know that it actually plays games, and isn't just a poseur.
Holy chainsaw guns, we've got a ton of news for you today! More details creeped out about Elder Scrolls Skyrim, including some promising news about NPC intelligence and wooly fucking mammoths, we finally got a date (March 25th in UK, March 27th in USA) and a price ($250) for the 3DS, AND Final Fantasy XIII-2 got officially announced and trailer'd. Furthermore, we figured out why Portal 2 on PS3 is the best version, shifted our rant-gammaray from CliffyB to David Cage, and laughed about Germany censoring Dead Space 2. Yes, there was a lot to talk about today folks, but not so much that we didn't get to bask in the glory of your voicemails (that number again is 775-55-DTOID). Also, we're doing a livestream on Monday! Let us know in the comments what games you want us to chat about.
What'd you guys do this weekend? If you're one of the thousands of people that joined is in our charity:water livestream, then you helped us raise over $5,000, and enough to provide clean water to an entire village. THANK YOU! Aside from livestream shenanigans, there was also a few videogame related things that happened. We found out what happens when you play Dead Space 2 on the hard(core)est difficulty, and discovered what co-creator Ian Milham thinks of a Dead Space movie. We also got news that our fearless leader Mr Destructoid is making an appearance in the forthcoming iPhone game The Blocks Cometh, and get the latest word on the Dtoid Minecraft happenings (spoiler alert: awesome things are happening). Finally, we learned that the project formerly known as Midway's Hero is back as AWAKENING, and looks pretty awesome.
This is gonna be a big week folks - it's GDC 2011! It's gonna be jam packed with news, so be sure to stay tuned to youtube****/dtoid and www.destructoid**** for more info.
