On today’s Wrap; Frozen Endzone comes to Steam Early Access, we go hands on with OnLIve’s CloudLift, Gearbox and Telltale go in-depth on Tales from the Borderlands and Atlus and Ace Team announce Abyss Odyssey.
Following up on the runaway success that Frozen Synapse was, Mode 7 Games has brought their latest to the PC with Frozen Endzone. Based in a futuristic sports league that’s comprised of robots, players must basically play a sort of American Football, but with much harder hits.
As a fan of some of the classic sports games where you could actually play as robots (and mutants *AHEM*) I’m pretty excited for this one- especially considering how great Frozen Synapse was. Once again, Mode 7 has a game on their hands that looks gloriously slick and hi-tech with some very impressive graphics, judging by the single screen that was released anyway.
Currently in Early Access on Steam, there’s bunch of cool stuff that can be had by buying in now. Or you could just sit tight till later this year, when the game is scheduled to hit in all it’s ‘finished’ glory. Read more here.
OnLive CloudLift – hands on opinion
Now this is cool- take OnlIve’s streaming technology and point it not at a set-top box, but at any computer, and anywhere there’s an internet connection.
That in a nutshell, is the promise of what the game streaming giant is preparing to bring to market. Right now, there aren’t a whole lot of games taking advantage of the program, but it’s still early and I’ve gotta believe that there’s a monster of a audience for something like this.
