    Just checked out the trailer for Wolfenstein. Very cool indeed. Looks like there might be good healthy competition for COD5 this winter.

    (www.eurogamer.net has the trailer posted up)

    Ya looks awesome! Art style is like a mix of historic and super natural. Something the last wolfenstein pulled off excellently.

    Really looking forward to this title. Wonder who’s publishing this one, as Activision traditionally publish the majority of Id stuff right (although this game isnt been made by Id themselves)? So Activision-Blizzard might be incline to release it when it wont take away from COD5 sales. So might not make it out until a good bit after Christmas.

    Hrm, the link actually goes to the Madworld gameplay trailer, which after watching it is far more interesting than Wolfenstein one imo. The level of violence in it is rather shocking actually, it should be interesting to see if we have another Manhunt 2 situation on our hands with it, especially with things like this…

    Watching Inaba play, the controls do look intuitive – you swing the remote downwards to chop off a head, for example, and make a forwards thrusting movement to impale people on pointy sticks.

    Nevertheless, I can see the tabloid press foaming at the mouths as this game gets closer to public consumption. :?

    I did have to laugh at some of the parts of the interview that the Producer of the game, Atsushi Inaba, gave…

    One journalist pipes up to suggest chopping each other into bloody messes isn’t most Wii users’ idea of social gaming fun. Isn’t MadWorld a bit hardcore? "It might seem a little niche or a little core, but actually when you play it’s a pretty simple action game," says Inaba . "Anyone can pick it up and play. It’s perfect for Wii, because Wii is the perfect social console."

    Yea, I can really see this being billed as a "social" game in the mainstream. ;)

    Righto ;) good catch. Expect it next year so, when COD5 marketing dies down. (well console version anyway, they might release PC earlier as its not a very competitive market, majority of cod5 will be sold on consoles).
