Have You Played… Prince Of Persia (1990)?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. We're 300 games into Have You Played now, and I thought I'd run out of titles I've played. As it turns out, there was a whole new seam of stuff waiting, ancient titles I played on my first PC, a humble 25MHz 486…

In Outlast, The Greatest Horror Enemy Of All… Is Man

There are many frightening things in this world. Some of them are to be expected - for instance, giant, violently writhing millipedes and whatever primeval force gave Gary Busey the power to "smile." Other things, meanwhile, are less expected. Things like penguin mouths. And still others are so expected that they've lost their chill-inducing mystique entirely. That's where videogame monsters enter the picture. I mean, it's…

Prince of Persia Trailers Bonanza

Prince of Persia is only three weeks away, and the promotion is stepping up. A throng of videos have recently appeared, and they're below. They still leave me with my tweak of concern that the game hasn't made any real changes beyond the aesthetic. The addition of the NPC co-op buddy intrigues me, but the trailers have yet to show me what she does other…

Prince Of Persia Gets All Arty

How to while away the last few minutes of my birthday, before the Phillies begin game 5, and their inevitable triumphant victory in the World Series? Why, with Prince of Persia videos, of course. The first (below) features a really rather pleasant arty story-piece, discussing the battle between light and dark, all esoteric and confusing. The second has three members of the development team discussing…

Will He Be King? New Prince Of Persia Footage

Right, so that Mirror's Edge trailer was three weeks old, despite being posted as new by evil sites who I will now destroy, so it's gone. HAPPY? Good. So instead, below is some new footage (and by God it had better be new) of Prince of Persia. (Surely the next game should be called Prince Of Iran?) The first video is a super-emo (but nicely…

RPS Demands: I Want To Live Forever

I have a challenge, developers. I know you’re reading. I want a high profile, big budget, mainstream action game in which the player character is invincible. I believe that the next truly great game will be the one that does this. Games have come close. There have obviously been infinite lives for many. Mario, as he ages, becomes far more generous with his back-up existences…

Prince of Persia Goes To The Movies

Seems Hollywood big boys are taking videogame adaptations seriously these days. First, Bioshock gets a big-name director attached to it, in the form of Gore Verbinski, and now the other driving force behind Pirates of the Caribbean, noisy uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer, is dumping a truckload of money on a Prince of Persia silver-screener. It's due next year and "the producer and Disney hope to turn…

New Prince Of Persia Announced

Ubisoft have just announced that their Montreal studio is working on a new Prince of Persia game. Very little more is known at this point, other than someone at Ubi was on a dare to see how many times he/she could write "Prince of Persia" in the press release. A sample paragraph: "Developed by Ubisoft’s award-winning Montreal studio and the same all-star team that created…
