Sunday Gaming News – 18/11/2012

November 18, 2012

I’m guessing everyone is still busy with this week’s most monumental release, that being Sine Mora on PC, so there’s not a whole lot of news to cover today. Oh, and some games console is coming out in the US.

Anyway, here is the news.

  • NEWS: In an interview with Eurogamer, Hotline Miami creators Jonatan Söderström and Dennis Wedin reveal that upcoming DLC for the game may end up being as long as the original game. The interview also covers the inspirations for the game, and what the future holds for the developers.
  • NEWS: The situation for ArmA 3 developers Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar is getting worse. They’ve been refused bail, and must spend more time inside a crowded Greek prison while they await trial on espionage charges, which carry a maximum sentence of up to 20 years in Greece. The two were arrested for photographing a military installation while researching ArmA 3.
  • NEWS: The first reviews for the Wii U hardware are rolling in. Here’s one from Destructoid and a typically in-depth one from Ars Technica. We here at Rocket Chainsaw Towers are yet to receive our own review units, so you’ll have to wait a little while longer (not to mention the system isn’t launched here until November 30.)
  • FEATURE: And while most sites are focusing on the new system, CVG are taking a look back with an in-depth look at the history of the Wii. The article features interviews with Nintendo insiders, and Tom Quinn, the man who developed the motion control technology at the heart of the Wii’s controls.
  • NEWS: This weekend saw the premiere of the latest Evangelion film, Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Re-do. Over 4000 people saw it at Tokyo’s Wald-9 theatre, which ran the film continuously on all 9 screens as part of the premiere. The first six minutes of the film were also screened as a preview after the conclusion of a TV screening of Evangelion 2.22: You Can (Not) Advance.

Oh, and Happy 60th Birthday, Shigeru Miyamoto!
