    Capcom to release DuckTales Remastered

    PAX East has launched and Capcom starts it with a bang as they announce DuckTales Remastered. The title will be published by Capcom and created by WayForward Technologies. The new version is a remaster of the classic NES title. There will be some new features added. The new version has new hand-drawn sprites, and will feature original voice work. It’s coming to Wii U, PSN, and XBLA for $15. Basically a must buy for me. I loved the original game. Here is the reveal trailer: Ah nostalgia! I love it! Follow

    Pax East: Firefall PvE demo

    I’ve been able to follow Firefall since I first saw it at Pax Prime back in 2010. I thought that this more shooter oriented, free to play MMO was bringing something else to the table for someone who is more into shooters or just even sci-fi. It’s been great to see how Firefall has changed and developed over the years, and this year at Pax East I was able to play a bit of the PvE that will be in the game and experience a bit of the beta. I first was shown an intro video by Lead Designer Scott Youngblood, which sets up the story for Firefall. In this cinematic, we are shown the maiden voyage of the Arclight and the events that took place to get the world to as we see it in Firefall. It’s a very well done cinematic that sets up the story quite well

    Women in Games: Susan Arendt, Managing Editor at The Escapist

        Welcome, GamingAngels readers! It’s time to start bringing you more Women in Games interviews. Why? Because so many people don’t realize all the different ways that you can work with games. You don’t have to be a programmer, or an artist — you can take your skills and make a gaming-related career out of it, and that’s pretty awesome. We start with someone who can answer quite a few of the questions I’ve gotten (mainly, how do I start writing about games?) much better than I ever could — Susan Arendt, Managing Editor at The Escapist. Not only will you learn how she got into this and what she does on any “typical” day (even though there isn’t one), but you’ll also find out about what she loves in female game characters (and you can view her whole PAX panel on that here, hooray), what she looks for

    PAX East Panel: Females on Female Characters (pt. 2 – Q&A)

    So yesterday I posted the first half of the Females on Female Characters panel from PAX East 2011. Today, you get the second half of the panel, which consisted of responses from the panel to the audiences comments and questions. I apologize ahead of time for the shaky-cam as I switched from the panelists to the audience members. And a reminder that there may be some more mature language in the video. Follow

A lot of assumptions

    IDGA Hosting Game Industry Panels at PAX EAST

    The International Game Developers Association (IGDA) is adding to PAX East’s already packed schedule with three full days of sessions for working developers and people interested in game industry careers. “After our first joint effort with PAX in 2010, IGDA members told us how much they liked attending development sessions while being able to enjoy PAX at the same time, so we decided to take things up to 11 and create a full program for PAX East,” Gordon Bellamy, executive director, IGDA, said. “Nothing will make us happier than to see each session filled with gamers ready to create the next Halo.” The sessions keynote will be given by Turbine Executive Producer Fernando Paiz. His talk, “The Game Monetization Revolution: Embracing new business models that are good for both players and developers”  will take place Saturday.  Paiz oversees Dungeons & Dragons Online and joined Turbine in 2004 as Director of
