Hey, it’s another trailer for the Hulk. The folks at Sega are pushing this game hard. As I’ve said before, it looks beautiful and appears to be an exact copy of Ultimate Destruction only prettier. Looking forward to trying this out. Although I have to go on record as saying, I’m not a fan of Sandbox games.
I always said that if you want to get some insight into a popular upcoming film, look no further than the Video Game Tie-In. I saw The Incredible Hulk Game at New York Comic-Con a few weeks ago and it looks amazingly beautiful – if empty. There are some awe inspiring moments like when you jump off a 30 story building and you see the entire city around you, without any popup or draw-in. Looks gorgeous. But at the same it looked strangely, "antiseptic," with no people or dirt or grime. The game play and design seems to be exactly the same as the last Hulk game, only prettier. But the last Hulk game was pretty darn good for a movie game, so why mess with a winning formula. Take a look at this latest Making of trailer.
The fine folks at Sega sent over a behind the scenes look at the making of the new Iron Man video game. I’m using the video from the fine folks at Gametrailers.com because, you know. Bandwidth cost money. I don’t know, I’m getting a little excited about this game. I know I’m in for a disappointment as generally, all movie games suck. But this may break the mode.
If you want to see what’s going to be in the Iron Man movie, today’s announcement and showcase of the new unlockable suits in the game may provide a sneak peak. This is the very first Iron Man suit ever built. In a life changing moment, Tony Stark is attacked and captured by terrorists. While being held captive, Tony is forced to build a weapon of mass destruction. With the help of Yinsen, Tony builds the Mark I suit instead and uses it to escape. Thus, a new Super Hero is born: IRON MAN!
It’s not an official Summer Blockbuster until there’s a game attached. The folks at Sega have been doing the full court press on their upcoming The Incredible Hulk Video Game. The game features key moments from the film, as well as additional plotlines and characters from the character’s rich comic-book universe. Players smash through New York City, battling gigantic enemies amidst soaring skyscrapers in a massive open world. If the game sticks to the formula of the last Hulk game it’ll be a hit. Sega launched the official game website today – http://incrediblehulkthegame.com. I don’t like it, it’s overproduced and way too much flash. But I’m really looking forward to playing this game. In addition to being a movie tie in, the game will have a fully destructible world, you’ll be able to "hulk out" and whip some candy asses in a fully realized sandbox environment. What’s not to love? The game hits the street this June.
Iron Man is one of the top 15 movies I’m looking forward to this year. I will say that I’m mixed on the first trailer. All of the Tony Stark bits were right on target. Exactly what I want and expect from an Iron Man film. But the in armor stuff with the planes at the end of the trailer looked terrible. I’m holding out hope that the movie will rock. Of course a big film like this has a video game attached. I watched the demo at Comic-Con and it looks gorgeous. Here are some brand new sceenshots from the game.
The folks at Sega sent over the link to download the trailer for the upcoming Iron Man game. But I’m too lazy to download it and am grabbing this clip from one of my favorite sites on the web gametrailers.com. I had a chance to watch them play it at Comic Con last year and the game is shaping up really nice. Take a gander.
