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. ūüôā

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. ūüėÄ

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.

OnLive Lands in the UK This Week

This week, very ambitious and omnipotent, omniscient cloud gaming service, OnLive is going to land in the UK and rock its knickers off. And since this way of obtaining and playing games may seem very confusing¬† to some people, I’ve decided to post some helpful videos and answers from OnLive’s page. There will also be a link for you UK residents to go and check out the service for yourself after all of this helpful text is out of the way.

What is this ‘cloud gaming’ thing anyway?

 

What do I need to get started?

 

That’s all well and good, but do you have a neat little OnLive overview?

That’s a lot of American pricing. What will I pay in the UK?

We don’t have official word on how it’ll all convert into Pound Sterling. UK pricing will be detailed in full later this week.

Does OnLive stream PC versions of games?

According to OnLive’s VP of Games & Media John Spinale, “Yes” although he told us that the games are modified into an OnLive version of their PC counterparts. “But at the core of our game servers is essentially a PC architecture,” he emphasised saying that OnLive games do look better than the console versions.

What about lag?

OnLive admits that your game won’t run as fast as if it were hosted on a server in your home but it does work to keep latency as low as possible “hopefully to the point where you don’t notice it.”

“At this stage in OnLive’s technology evolution, most OnLive players report that they experience no latency or acceptable latency. But, some players will find the current latency unacceptable in some games.”

It continues to say that it’s always working to reduce latency even further all the time but the best way to find out how well the system runs in your home is to try some demos. All games in the OnLive library can be played for free for half an hour.

Should I go with a particular broadband provider for best results?

OnLive has partnered with BT in the UK. You don’t have to be with BT to play OnLive but it will be working with the cloud-gaming company and optimising with OnLive in mind.

Can I play over WiFi?

The OnLive micro-console itself can only be used over a wired connection using an Ethernet cable. You can of course use a wireless connection when playing OnLive on your PC or Mac using the OnLive app.

If you don’t have an Ethernet port close enough to your TV to use the OnLive micro-console, you can create a network bridge using either a Powerline Adapter (using mains plugs to bridge the gap), a Coax Bridge (using TV aerial port) or a Wireless Bridge (using two wireless routers).

Does it have decent developer and publisher support?

“Almost all publishers and developers are on board,” says OnLive also pointing out that independent developers will be just as well represented as the big boys thanks to the ability to self-publish digital distribution provides.

“There’s a large number of people on the platform right now and the vast majority of third-party games as they come out going forward will be on OnLive pretty much day and date,” says the cloud company.

Where do I sign up?

Register your gamertag at www.onlive.co.ukwhere you’ll be able to download the OnLive app for PC or Mac or order the OnLive micro-console at launch. Watch out for news on retail partnerships coming shortly.[ Source: OnLive ]
