Rundown, But Still Kickin

Its 2024
The world is Rundown, but still kicking with a 19 minute game play video of the new kickstarter resurrected franchise RUNDOWN:RETURNS and 8BC’s first post of 2013. I had no idea this baby was being worked on until today as Kotaku’s sweet post hit up my Facebook wall a couple minutes ago. The game play video starts off in a cyberpunk world and doesn’t waste any time in escalating into a rifle/shotgun battle between player and AI in the middle of the street. As the player takes cover to avoid gunfire he very easily tears up the AI as it stands in  front of him like a hopeless Miami baseball team :p . A couple minutes in and you will be able to see the basic elements of a RPG with some little bonuses here and their. Including some blast from the past Snes characters, sweet mechanics and pretty stellar graphics. Hopefully this is on your to play list of games for this year and lives up to our expectations.  I will definitely be getting my hands on this later this year.

The game will retail for $20 when it release later this year, unless you pre order it from the Harebrained site were you will get $5 off and a chance to upgrade to Deluxe or Collectors edition. Make sure to follow Harebrained on Facebook, twitter and their site for the latest news on updates, events, dev diaries and Epicness.

OnLive Continues Their THQ Deal Week With…

 

MX VS. ATV REFLEX!

First off, I’d like to apologize on behalf of the ENTIRE 8BC crew for not being as swift with our news as we used to be, the majority of us are absolutely slammed with other priorities at the moment and we hope to get these matters resolved so we may go back to our usual regimen of making your minds cum on a daily basis.

Slightly perverted-undertone apology aside; today on OnLive, you may/will purchase Mx Vs. Atv Reflex for a mere 5USD. Now I’ve been on record as saying that I “will forever miss the Mx VS. Atv series” and that still holds true. So.. to honor one of my most favorite racing franchises of all time. I, Shawn, not as an editor, not as an omnipotent being that blesses all of you (except for when Full Sail insists  that I cram my head full of knowledge, damn you Finite Math), not even as the perverted savior of many social networks, but as a gamer celebrating all of the joy this franchise gave me, will buy Ms VS. Atv Reflex through OnLive and aggressively play the hell out of the online multiplayer. I hope to see all of you OnLine (HA, you see what I did there. Whooo I am a hoot and a half) with me.

My player tag on OnLive is “supermave” (sans quotation marks) please mention 8BC in your friend request. 🙂

And if you don’t mind, I’m just going to leave this game play footage here, I assure you it has absolutely no ulterior motives or deceptions to entice you to buy the game and join me online *inconspicuous whistle*.

As always, thank you for reading *and watching the video, I KNOW YOU DID* Feel free to Like us on Facebook and stalk us on Twitter. Also, if you’d click that nice little “follow” button on the bottom left hand corner of your screen, that would make me really happy. 😀

Vita’s 3G Capped to 20MB of Data Download… wait what? o__O

Seems like Sony is taking a page from mobile phone service providers and posting a data download cap on their Vita (the data download cap is only if you opt for the 3G model.)

Sony representatives stated that players who will use the 3G downloads will be limited to 20MB of data. Wait what? That’s pretty damn absurd; what if I want to download a game from the PS Store or even do some online gaming? Oh wait, I can’t even do online gaming in 3G because the speeds are around 128kbps download and 64kbps upload. So unless I REALLY like the feel of my online gaming to be somewhere along the lines of obtuse and virtually unplayable, I get no online gaming for my Vita. Which brings about another question, why even bother having a 3G model if the speeds are going to be this piss poor?

Luckily those speeds and data caps are only for Japan (as of this typing) it’s still unknown as to what Americans and Brits get to do with their 3G, but since AT&T has an exclusive partnership deal with Sony & the Vita (in the U.S. that is) I’m guessing fuck all. I think I’m going to get Verizon Wi-Fi just to see if I can make an AT&T employee’s head implode.

The PSVita launches in Japan on December 17th, 2011. And sometime in early 2012 for the rest of us that matter.

As always thanks for reading. Feel free to Like us on Facebook and stalk all of us on Twitter.

Now go back to saving the world or that princess that never puts out.

Super Meat Boy 24 Hour Live Stream

[Stream Starts at 1am Pacific Time on the 27th]

If your wondering why their hasn’t been any post as of lately it is, because our most active writer Jhonny Thizzlam has been busy setting up a live stream for the release of the Binding Of Isaac on the 28th. Like always he started late and only had a week to set everything up. In four days he worked on the exterior of the stream lol.  when he should of been working on the exterior, with only 54 hours to go lets hope he can pull off a miracle and get the stream lag free (doubt it). Above you will see our Super Meat Boy Live stream promo that he did on the fly.

[ Jhonny Thizzlam] Yip, I wanted to do a live stream because I love super meat boy and since the Binding Of Isaac was coming out and half of Team Meat was working on it, why not play Super Meat Boy all day, before it comes out. Then I told myself “if your gonna play Super Meat Boy all day why not stream it?” Then I was like holy fuck that’s a great idea. Super Meat Boy for 24 hours on my birthday! It can’t get better then this! So since this stream is on the fly I apologise now for the lag that will be experienced and for not having any prizes to give away. I also apologize for not have enough time to have Skype worked and figured out and not having a computer good enough to run it.

[Things that are being worked on] Stream quality, voice [a must], cam [probably not],skype[maybe], prizes [I’ll see what I can do]…….  Things I don’t get to do this time around since stream was done on the fly… Dress up as Dr. Fetus and paint my face pink which is as much as a let down for me as it is for you since I really wanted to do it lol.

If you cant make it at least take a glimpse at my channels layout I think its pretty cool.

FFX for PS3 and PSVita Will be a REMAKE

 

I’m usually not the type of guy that gets “floored” by announcements, but needless to type, after stumbling upon this tidbit of news I immediately cast myself onto the floor. According to PSTime, Final Fantasy X will be a full blown remake that uses the Final Fantasy XIII engine. Now it’s time for some block quoted and bullet pointed details.

 

  • Uses the same engine from Final Fantasy XIII and adapted to PSVita.
  • All that is made ​​from scratch with the new engine is the design of the characters, the aeons and stage elements.
  • The sets and scenes in HD remastered CGI will implement a “filter” FFXIII Engine.
  • The magic and some lighting effects are achieved with the new engine “Luminous”.
  • The Blitzball undergoes some small changes.
  • Will include some online options (specific details are unknown).
  • The release date in Japan is fiscal 2012.

(Editors note: I tried to edit and modify those translated details to make the most sense as best as I could with what little energy I had)

I just hope they also edit out this laugh scene.

Tell us what you think about all of these details in our comment box (it won’t bite). Also, Like us on Facebook and stalk us on Twitter.

And.. thanks for reading. 😀

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary for $30 & Pre-Order Goodies

Feel like seeing where the Halo phenomenon started? Feel like reliving the “good ol’ days” of the Halo-verse. Feel like reminiscing at that one spot where you got sniped for the very first time.. only to be sniped again because you were too busy staring at some fucking polygonal scenery reminiscing about a time you let a bullet go through your head!! Oh, did I forget to mention that all of those classic maps are going to be remastered in HD.. ’cause that’s kinda important.

Well you’ll be able to do all of that on November 15, 2011 when “Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary” is released for the Xbox 360. Oh did I forget to mention that (through Amazon) is only 30 DOLLARS! Oh yes my lovable worshipers you did read that correctly. But just to add some more validity to this epic announcement, allow me to humble you with the details straight from Amazon’s page.

$10 Credit Plus Pre-order Bonus
Pre-order Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and get a $10 Amazon credit good toward the purchase of items shipped and sold by Amazon.com (certain exclusions apply, including Kindle books, MP3s, and video rentals and downloads) as well as Master Chief Avatar Armor and the Grunt Funeral Skull (once activated, every grunt’s methane tank will explode like a plasma grenade when killed). The promotional code for the credit will be e-mailed within two days after the product ships. The access code for the armor and skull will be packaged inside the game box. Offer valid when shipped and sold by Amazon.com, while supplies last. Limit one per customer. Amazon reserves the right to change or terminate this promotion at any time.

Okay so it’s $30 dollars when you use the $10 credit, but still, what else are you going to use that ten dollar credit on? Socks? I don’t think so, there are digital aliens out there and a ginger in some far away state THAT NEEDS TO DIE (digitally)! Oh shit.. I completely forgot the link to make it easier for all of you to pre-order this awesome slice of epic over at Amazon. There we go.. all better now.

Well there you have it, feel free to express your gratitude towards me in our comments section below, also Like us on Facebook and stalk us on Twitter.

As usual, thanks for reading.
