Posted in PC, PlayStation 3, Square Enix Europe (Eidos), Trailer, Video, Xbox 360 with tags , , on March 17, 2010 by James Love

Square Enix have just unveiled the launch trailer for Just Cause 2 which you can catch after the break. As with the Metro 2033 trailer, the accompanying track is awesome, this time it’s Propane Nightmares by Pendulum.

Square have also announced that the demo has been a huge success for them with over 2 million downloads on 360, PS3 and PC.

Square’s PR gives some pretty awesome facts, “Players have driven a distance equivalent to a trip from the earth to the moon and back four times; Panau Island has lost almost 30 million of its population (with approximately 2.5 million headshots, almost a million drivers hurled from hijacked vehicles and 27,000 Piñata kills); and players have BASE jumped the equivalent of a freefall through the Earth’s core, pole-to-pole, twice.”

Pretty awesome, right? Just Cause 2 launches March 26th.

It’s that time of year, folks.

The time where we sort the men from the boys, the wheat from the chaff and find out which is better: Coke or Pepsi? Daddy or Chips? But in our case, Uncharted 2 or Modern Warfare 2.

These are just two of the game that are in the running for Game of the Year 2009, alongside Batman: Arkham Asylum and Street Fighter IV.

We do have other awards too though, you know. So, let’s not waste any other time, and let’s get cracking. All of the awards are below.

Just one thing though: all of the staff involved in the process, both full-time and freelance, had a clean slate. They were free to pick any game that was on the consoles as their nomination. Basically, you picked Left 4 Dead 2 as a nomination in GOTY, it would also go down as your vote for GOTY. Same for all the other categories.

This could mean you may only see one game completely run away with it in one category, while it becoming very close in others.

By Jonathan Cullen.

As you read this, practically all of Japan will be a third way through their first playthrough of Final Fantasy XIII.

Us Westerners, unless you want to import like myself, won’t get our hands on the game until March 2010 in a US/EU sim-ship. The question that only remains is can Final Fantasy XIII turn out to be not just one of the best RPGs of next year, but the best of next year altogether?

GOONL!NE Advent Calander 2010: #8 – Just Cause 2

Posted in PlayStation 3, Square Enix Europe (Eidos), Xbox 360 with tags , on December 14, 2009 by Chris Hawke

Just Cause was really, really fun. Utterly broken, but fun. See, the developers at Avalanche Studios were kinda pressed for time, so were forced to push out a half finished game; All the trees were 2D, the campaign was short, some missions couldn’t be completed, and various bugs destroyed any hope of the game being put into the Halls Of Fame. Despite all this, it was really, really fun.
