Day 1 Studios Gets Hit With Layoffs, Revealed To Have Been Working On A Konami Franchise

The year may almost be over and in a way the video game biz is slowly ramping up to enter stasis mode for a few weeks, but alas we have news of yet another studio being hit with substantial layoffs.  2011 has seen a great many studios be closed or halved in size, some of which were to be expected while others were a complete shock (Team Bondi closing still has me in WTF mode).  Today brings the unfortunate news that layoffs have been issued at Day 1 Studios due to a deal falling through, something which is all too common to hear these days.

New Fear 3 Trailers Featuring MP Action & Some Surburban Chaos

It's little more than a month away until gamers are thrusted back into the town of Fairport to once again submerged themselves into the horror that Day 1 Studios' F.3.A.R. promises to deliver.

To satisfy your need to be scared, we have a couple of new trailers that features some of the new multiplayer modes mayhem that waits gamers and some new scare filled gameplay footage.

The first trailer showcases F.3.A.R.'s four multiplayers modes that will be available. They include:

New F.E.A.R. 3 Trailer Teaches; With Family You'll Never Face Fear Alone

Another creepy trailer has been released for the upcoming paranormal horror first-person shooter, F.E.A.R. 3 from Day 1 Studios.

The new trailer showcases the lovely family of Alma Wade and her two sons Point Man and Paxton Fettel and the horrific circumstances that binds them all. A rather spooky family ensemble tailor made to appear on an episode of the Jerry Springer Show.

F.E.A.R. 3 is shaping up quite nicely to give Dead Space 2 some serious competition for the scariest video game of 2011.

F.E.A.R. 3 devs talk about co-op in this new behind-the-scenes video (no pregnant chicks included)

Most games this generation have done the good thing of including co-op in some variety.  There have been a few games that have forced their co-op modes upon gamers, but when included in an fps game it’s all good.  Personally, I find it hard to replicate the experience of playing a game with a buddy and absolutely tearing things up in co-op = pure mayhem and fun.

F.E.A.R. 3 gets a nightmare inducing Collector's Edition

To offset the news of its sudden delay, WB Games have revealed that F.E.A.R. 3 will receive a Collector’s Edition.  Having a Collector’s Edition pop up may not make up for the game getting delayed yet again, but the hardcore F.E.A.R. fans may dig what WB Games have devised since the CE is as creepy as the video game itself.

New F.E.A.R. 3 trailer shows an apocalyptic landscape

Just like a dozen other games originally slated for release this year, the next installment of the F.E.A.R. franchise been bumped to the exceedingly packed early 2011 schedule.  It certainly has been awhile since we last saw F.E.A.R. 3, which now allows gamers to play as both of Alma’s children – the heroic Point Man and the recently deceased baddy Paxton Fettel.

When your mom is a lady with unique supernatural powers and was experimented on as a girl it shouldn’t be surprising if you find yourself bestowed with “unique” abilities.  In fact Paxton Fettel seems to be quite used to the gifts his mom Alma passed onto him, even if he happens to be dead.

F.3.A.R. trailer shows gameplay and an awesome beard

This latest trailer for F.3.A.R. (yes I’m calling it by its proper name) shows that it’s hero Point Man is quite a badass. But that shouldn’t be too surprising since his mom is a super powered entity and he also has a beard. And we all know that anyone who’s sporting a beard is badass mofo.

F.3.A.R. box art is simple yet still creepy

 

The last time we saw F.E.A.R. 3, or should I say F.3.A.R was last month when the game was formally announced. We didn’t get much in the way of media aside from a snazzy looking live-action trailer which gave us a few milliseconds of gameplay footage.

F.E.A.R. 3 gets a live action trailer

I kind of miss the good old days when game announcements would come with a nice Press Release and a trailer. These days’ most game announcements are made in installments, often with certain sites getting “exclusive” screens or trailers.  That tactic is understandable since it builds the hype for a project. More importantly it means that fools such as me will cover these updates thus fulfilling my role of being a cog in a massive PR machine.
