Have You Played… Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. "What's the game you're the worst at that you most enjoy?" John recently asked. I wouldn't say Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved is mine, but I do like Bizarre's arena shoot 'em up and I am rubbish at it. I can face three different…

A Strange Tale: Dark Days For Bizarre?

The internet moved at especially frightening speed this evening, with a tale that 007 Blood Stone/Blur/The Club/Geometry Wars/Project Gotham developer Bizarre Creations was allegedly to lose staff or even close its doors slamming from 0mph Twitter rumour to 100mph damning Activision statement within 90 minutes. Online chatter's divided into roughly two camps. 1) Owners Activision are greedy so-and-sos who have no right and far too…

Tux And Roll: Blood Stone Trailer

What is going to happen to Bond? With the films on hiatus it seems all we really have to look forward to from the smooth agent is a Daniel Craig facsimile doing his "the Bourne Movies were quite good" routine in a tux. It's a shame. It's not that Blood Stone looks particularly bad, as you can see from the trailer below, it's just that,…

New Bond Is “Blood Stone”

So, while the Bond movie languishes in limbo, Activision have confirmed that the other new Bond game is called James Bond 007: Blood Stone. It's being developed by Bizarre Creations, and will feature fancy cover-based shooting, hand-to-hand fisticuffs, chatting to sexy ladies, automotive racing sequences, and the voices of Daniel Craig, Joss Stone, and Judi Dench. There's a reveal video up, which I've posted below.…

Blur Power Up Trailer

Hmm, Bizarre Creations do rather seem hyped-up about their new racer, Blur, which features a kind of real world street-racing system with science-fictional power-ups. In this trailer they explain some of effects, such as a "shunt" energy ram (aka red turtle shell?), a nitro, and an EMP blast. All these allow players to have more influence on the outcome of the race than mere driving…

“Beautiful Chaos”: Blur Dev Talk

You know I'd forgotten about Blur, actually, and I'd skipped a lot of the initial bout of excitement over the game. Seems it is still Windows-bound, however, with a rough "end of 2009" release date, and so we're eventually going to get a taste of Bizarre Creations "power-up, power-up, power-up" philosophy for their hyperbolic new racing game. They've stuck some of their developer types in…

Blur: Sadly Not About Racing Faded Britpoppers

The full trailer for Bizarre Creations' (Project Gotham Racing, Geometry Wars) new racer is up - and it's real-world cars with fantastical power-ups. I saw Blur a little while back, and asked if there was any in-fiction explanation for these powers. They claimed not, all their attempts to dream one up having proved too ridiculous. I know I'm happy to just take it in my…

Give Bizarre Your Money

Bizarre Creations, the developers behind Geometry Wars, The Club and the Project Gotham series, have launched their 2008 money raising efforts. The fine folks are aiming to raise as much as they can for Marie Curie Cancer Care, trying to top last year's £6000. This will involve the Liverpool Half Marathon, the Liverpool Field of Hope charity walk, abseiling down Leasowe Lighthouse, and finally a…

Join Our Club: The Club Demo Released

Martin Lee drops us a line to tell us that the demo for Bizarre Creations the shooter is out, and is "many Peggles" in size. In fact, as a blogging professional, I can reveal it's actually 124 Peggles in size. In fact, it's so big that the RPS-towers bandwidth pipe visibly vented its bowels when we even considered downloading the thing. Poor thing. If you…

The Club, Out This Week

The much-hyped shooter by racing game masters Bizarre Creations is out on Friday. It's a gun game with a difference: the action is a little closer to fighting games or racing games than your traditional kill 'em up. The Club is where the hi-score table is what matters, and your ability to get flick headshots dominates everything else. It's a little closer to the arcade…
