By Jonathan Cullen.

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.

Eidos Montreal: Deus Ex 3 Cinematics Being Handled by Square Enix

Posted in Eidos, PlayStation 3, Square Enix, Xbox 360 with tags , , on November 24, 2009 by Jonathan Cullen

Eidos Montral GM Stephane D’Astous has revealed to Edge that Square Enix will be handling the cinematics for Deus Ex 3. Knowing Square Enix, it’ll be filled with CGI goodness.

Just in case you can’t remember, Square bought Eidos back in April.

“The cinematics — by which I mean any CGI pre-rendered cinematics — are going to be done in Tokyo by Square Enix, and that’s going to be amazing,” said D’Astous.

“It was in April when Square Enix acquired us, and by June, July I was trying to think of a project we could do together. One morning I woke up and I said, we’ll, they’re known for their cinematics, so why not get them involved with those?”

Epic. The RPG is out next year for the PS3 and 360. We’re still to see some gameplay footage of it though. So far, only concept art and a teaser has been released.

Speaking in Issue 38 of Official Playstation Magazine (out now), Sefton Hill replied to the question of whether gamers would see a sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum by saying this:

‘I’m not really allowed to comment on that, but there are definitely lots of exciting stories to tell in Batman’s world, and I can say that we’re really privileged to work on it, and excited about future possibilities.’

Maybe we’ll see the dank walls of Arkham Asylum again, or even a full-blown sandbox adventure in Gotham.
