Propaganda Games

VFS Game Design Expo 2011

A few weeks back I got to take part in the annual Vancouver Film School’s Game Design Expo. For the second year in a row, the VFS GDE was phenomenal. The event itself is very much based on drawing students to the game design program that is offered at VFS. The build of the weekend event is a Saturday filled with interviews and a Sunday chalked full of Campus and Course overview.

Fist Bump or Bitch Slap: Propaganda Games or Microsoft

 

This is the love/hate relationship between the video game industry and myself. Every week I will pick someone who gets my Fist-bump for doing a good deed, someone who gets my undesirable Bitch-Slap for doing something wrong (or just something that pisses me off), and I'll share my experience/opinion along the way. 

 

The axing continues: layoffs issued at Junction Point Studios

Looking at the amount of developers that have either received massive layoffs or been closed entirely is like seeing Genghis Kahn lay waste to his foes in Asia and across the world.

Propaganda Games reportedly has been closed [RUMOR]

Today is just one of those grim days in the video game industry that no matter what happens will just be a sucky day. There could be double rainbows across the world or some newfangled tech development and things will still be crappy. The reason for such a grim attitude today is because reports are coming in that Propaganda Games (Turok, TRON: Evolution) has been closed by Disney Interactive.

Take a peek behind the scenes of TRON: Evolution [Video]

As much of a TRON fan as I am, I’m very apprehensive about TRON: Evolution, the upcoming video game tie-in for TRON: Legacy.  I definitely want to see the world of TRON represented with gorgeous HD visuals, but after playing countless movie tie-in games, perhaps too many for my own good, I’m of course wary that TRON: Evolution will actually be good.

GDC Canada: Shogun's Wrap Up and Final Thoughts

As a fan of video games, technology, and the people behind both of them I have an obvious interest in the conferences that bring together the minds behind the tech that I love. Once I heard there was going to be a conference locking together all these interests in my own back yard, well I knew I had to make my way there. GDC Canada might not have had the flash of its bigger American brother, or the size of a show like CES, but size is not always the most important thing.

Teaser trailer for the Tron Legacy game

We all knew that a video game tie-in for the much hyped Tron sequel Tron Legacy was going to happen and Tron geeks like myself can begin to get hyped up about the game since we have our first teaser trailer today.
