So Why Did Naughty Dog Thank Bungie?

Posted in PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 with tags , , , , on October 14, 2009 by Chris Hawke

Uncharted 2

You might be surprised to find that, at the end of Uncharted 2, developer Naughty Dog lists developer Bungie in the credits, thanking them. For what, you ask? Neil Druckmann said:

“Re: thanking other developers. We try to be quite open with our technology and our process. We exchanged technology and ideas with other developers. We wanted to make sure we thanked everyone that helped us out in some way.”

It’s nice to see that despite being PS3 and Xbox developers, they can still find time to be friendly. We’re still miffed as to why Naughty Dog left us out the credits, though…

Final Fantasy XIIIA new scan of Final Fantasy XIII has appeared from Japan.

We dont quite know which publication it is from, but we’re pretty certain this isn’t most likely from Famitsu.

The scan shows the blue-haired Aussie speaking character from the end of the Tokyo Game Show trailer, who is supossidly known as Oerba Yun Fang according to early translations, with her summon being Bahamut.

However we again must stress this hasn’t been confirmed yet as these are early translations that are going about.

Catch the scan after the jump.

Game’s out on December 17 in Japan for PS3. There will be alot more info on the game next week in Famitsu.

Left 4 Dead Achievements Revealed, Confirms Campaigns

Posted in Valve, Xbox 360 with tags , on October 13, 2009 by Chris Hawke

Left 4 Dead 2

All 50 of the Xbox 360 Achievements have been released, and they look as hard as ever.

They all add up to 1000 points, and confirm that the rumored last two campaigns that were leaked a week ago are, indeed, true. You’ll be slicing through zombies in Dead Center (Dead Rising, anyone?), and battling forces natural (and unnatural, obviously) in Hard Rain.

The achievements that really catch our eye are the ‘Prove you are faster/stronger than Moustachio’ ones. Obviously set in the Dark Carnival campaign, we can only guess what it entails; probably using a melee weapon to compete in one of those Whack-A-Mole and Strength Tester attractions. Then killing some zombies. Duh.

All the Achievements can be found HERE

Yakuza 3 asset

Over at NeoGAF, Cyntec has stated that Yakuza 3 will be making its way to the US.

“Yesterday Sega told me alot about Yakuza 3, after begging for more information about a western release.
To short this up: Sega brings Yakuza 3 with an english translation. Japanese voice, english subtitles – just like Y2. No internal release-date set so far, but I guess it will hit early 2010.”

Cyntec also said that Yakuza Kenzan (a spin off from the Yakuza series) won’t be coming along with it.
