Watch GTTV on Alpha Protocol, The Pitt1 Comment

We’ve now posted this week’s GameTrailers TV episode.  We filmed down at Obsidian Entertainment in Irvine, CA and focuses on Alpha Protocol, a new action/RPG.  It definitely feels a lot like BioWare’s Mass Effect, but I’m intrigued by the combination of action and storytelling.  The real question is whether Obsidian will be able to deliver the quality of third-person action we expect from a shooter like Gears of War 2.  (Feargus, the head of the studio, says they are using the Unreal Engine to make sure the action feels good).  But the concept is dead-on: A Jason Bourne-style action/adventure with deep dialogue and RPG elements.  The game is expected to come out this Fall and I’ll be watching it closely.

This week you’ll also see the first trailer for The Pitt, the new Fallout 3 DLC coming out on March 27th.  This one is set in Pittsburgh, and, as you’ll see from the trailer, has a very different vibe from Fallout 3 and the recent Alaska-themed expansion.  A lot of companies are experimenting with different DLC models, but so far I am impressed with the frequency and variety of Bethesda’s approach.  The real question is how long fans will stay interested in paying for new Fallout missions.  From talking to Todd Howard at DICE, I get the feeling Bethesda is planning more than just the first batch of 3 DLC packs, assuming of course, the fans keep downloading them.

Stay tuned for news on next week’s episode of GTTV, which we just filmed in Madison, Wisconsin.  We’ll be going behind the scenes of WOLFENSTEIN, a long-awaited game that I first heard about back in 2005.  It’s going to be worth the wait though, and you’ll see a trailer, cutscenes, and a brand new trailer during the show.  Yes, that’s right: an id/Raven game with it’s own cutcenes.  And they look great.  More details soon.

We’re excited to announce that this Friday’s GTTV will include the world premiere trailer for The Pitt, the new Fallout 3 DLC for Xbox 360.  The trailer looks great, and once again the team at Bethesda has come up with a DLC pack that feels completely different from the original game and the recent Operation Anchorage.

We will have more details on this week’s GTTV on Wednesday, but get ready for a blowout episode on Alpha Protocol, the new action-RPG from Obisidian Entertainment, creators of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II.

Watch GTTV from DICE 2008No Comments


Head on over to GameTrailers to watch the latest episode of GameTrailers TV from DICE 2008. You’ll see me chatting with Bethesda’s Todd Howard (who reveals there was a surgery mini-game removed from Fallout 3), id’s Todd Hollenshead, EA’s Glen Schofield, and Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi.

Lots of great exclusive reveals this week as well, including Boom Blox Bash Party for the Wii, a new trailer for The Conduit, and the world premiere of the DLC for Call of Duty: World at War. We also break news on the show by revealing Split Second, the new racing game from Black Rock Studios, the creators of Pure. Although the trailer is CGI, I love the concept of a racing game with environmental destruction — especially if they can pull it off at a decent frame rate.

If you watch this week’s episode carefully you’ll also pick up on a big exclusive for next week’s show: The world premiere of the trailer for The Pitt, the new DLC for Fallout 3 set in Philadelphia. That one premieres next Friday, March 13 when I host the show from Obsidian Entertainment to discuss ALPHA PROTOCOL.
