Released in their latest newsletter, the developers behind Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade have given a bit more insight into what is to come. While they’ve been fairly open about what will follow, and inclusive of any suggestions made by the community, this one gave a few interesting details to readers.
This week on the Paranerds Podcast, the Paranerds speak about Captain America, Project X Zone, Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Infamous: Festival of Blood, Streets of Rage, The Amazing Spider-Man, Steamworld Dig, Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff, Ghostbusters, Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball, Plants Vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time, Skyrim, Minecraft, League of Legends, Guild Wars, and Command and Conquer along with new releases and news (see below). The two then go over owning a Wii U for less than a year and what the pros and cons are thus far.
A common accusation when it comes to films is that the director just didn’t understand the source material. They just didn’t get what made it work, fully comprehend quite how to faithfully adapt certain ideas or even get some basics right. Michael Bay’s Transformers, Roland Emmerich’s Godzilla, Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns, you can probably name quite a few. Well, now we have the penultimate video game example of this - Deus Ex: The Fall. The developers apparently understood none of the prior game’s successes, reasons for their acclaim or even the bare basics of how to create a successful game. The only reason it even resembles a true Deus Ex title is thanks to the sheer volume of assets reused from Human Revolution.
Of all the follow-up films possible, seeing Captain America’s development since the Avengers was easily going to be the most interesting. Along with being a man out of his own time, he was the first Avenger and has a closer attachment to the American military. Tactics have changed, methods have developed, and the foe the United States is seeking to fight is completely unlike the Nazi Regime. Thankfully, all of these are emphasised in the plot.
