Morning DLC: Video Games News And Rumors 3/13/14


The Last of Us creator Neil Druckmann has spoken about the upcoming movie, a potential sequel, and what DLC remains.

Talking to IGN during last night’s BAFTA Game Awards 2014, at which The Last of Uspicked up five awards, Druckmann began by clarifying the upcoming The Last of Us movie will be an adaptation of the game, though how it’ll be realised is unclear.

“It’s an adaptation of the story of The Last of Us,” he confirmed. “As far as where we go and how we make it fit into a film, how it takes into account the unique properties of film… We’re not sure yet. We’re only just scratching the surface.”

Fans of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus lost their minds back in 2009 when The Last Guardian from  Fumito Ueda’s Team Ico within Sony’s Japan Studio. What was shown back then was pretty mind-blowing. Since then, the game’s – or lack of it – has become a bit of an industry joke. 5 years on, and we’re no closer to seeing the game. Sony want you to believe that it’s still coming.

The Last Guardian still exists – but Sony’s not willing to make any announcements about platforms or release.

“[We]re] not going to announce what platform it’s coming on, who’s working on it, who’s involved. But that is still a title that’s absolutely in the mix at Worldwide Studios. That’s the most you’re gonna get.”

Google Glass owners have attracted bemusement – and outright hostility – for showing off the novel wearable computer, which can access the Internet and take photos. But come Thursday, the device might earn more stares thanks to the release of a video game that Glass users can control by weaving and bobbing their heads and shoulders.

“Global Food Fight,” from Menlo Park startup Mind Pirate, marks the first Google Glass game produced by a third-party developer. The product also represents the first time a company will simultaneously release a video game for both Google Glass and Apple’s iPhone and iPad.

Just as gamers flocked to untethered smartphones and tablets in recent years, Mind Pirate is betting that wearable devices like Google Glass represent the next stage in adapting video games for mobile devices.
