More Pinatas March 8, 2007

Viva Pinata has a TV Show, action figures releasing soon, a deal to make pinatas, a deal for greeting cards, and a game that hasn’t sold good even though it was released to critical acclaim. Luckily it is not being abandoned by Rare and they guaranteed it would be supported for at least two or three more years.

There is an upcoming Viva Pinata kart game for Xbox 360, not announced yet but it’s coming I know (maybe this holiday or in the summer.) Let’s see what happens, at least Rare acknowledged the franchise isn’t dieing. It hasn’t done that bad in sales when you think about it but hasn’t had as a successful launch as Pokemon did. Maybe it will soon.

Gears of War 2 February 13, 2007

Major Nelson interviewed Shane Kim on his blogcast this week. He starts talking how it is easier to invest your money for a game to be developed when you know it will be a success.

He then started naming examples – he named Halo 3 and Gears of War 2. He started to then stumble over his words and Major Nelson tries to jokingly say “You heard it hear first.” Then the move right along.

Gears of War 2 – start it up! Any suggestions for it?

Mass Effect’s Length February 11, 2007

Mass Effect’s length has been subjected to many questions as Bioware talks up episodic content many people feared they’d leave content out of Mass Effect and sell it later. Luckily it doesn’t appear to be the case. In a recent interview with Team Xbox when the developers were asked about the size of the game they responded saying it would be about 40 hours for the core game and could be another 20 or 30 hours depending on how you play the game with more content coming at a later date. At least the game will be huge but it will be a time sucker upper! Here’s the full quote,

Ray Muzyka: I mean, it really depends on just how much you want to do on the uncharted worlds. I think it’s going to be about 40 hours or so for the main story, so it’s going to be a good-sized BioWare RPG just for the core part. Off the beaten path, there’s probably another 20 or 30 hours or so of stuff, or more, depending on how much you do and what order you do it in and all of that. It’s this non-linear exploration of uncharted worlds.

Gears of War is selling out in Japan (well, they probably only made 10 copies for every store considering Japan has only about 295,000 Xbox 360s purchased in the country.)  We don’t live in Japan though, but if you want to see Gears of War in Japanese, view the video below.
