This 'SimCity 4' Region With 107 Million People Took Eight Months of Planning

Slashdot.org - Fri, 08/29/2014 - 15:02
Jason Koebler writes: Peter Richie spent eight months planning and building a megacity in vanilla SimCity 4, and the end result is mind-boggling: 107.7 million people living in one massive, sprawling region (video). "Traffic is a nightmare, both above ground and under," Richie said. "The massive amount of subway lines and subway stations are still congested during all times of the day in all neighborhoods of each and every mega-city in the region. The roadways are clogged at all times, but people still persist in trying to use them."

Ultimate Spider-Man: Season 3 Premiere Review

IGN.com - Fri, 08/29/2014 - 14:25

I really want to love Ultimate Spider-Man, but the times I’ve previously watched the show, it just hasn't fully worked for me. However, it had been awhile, and I was curious how things had progressed. Plus, there are certainly some elements about Season 3 – which boasts the subtitle Web Warriors – I’m curious about, including Peter Parker meeting various different incarnations of Spider-Man, including Miles Morales (voiced by Donald Glover!).

However, none of that begins in the two-parter, airing this Sunday, that kicks off Season 3. Instead, "The Avenging Spider-Man", not shockingly, guest stars the Avengers, as the team comes to recruit Spider-Man, giving Spidey the chance to step into the big leagues.

5 Things in Costume Quest 2 That Made Me Smile

IGN.com - Fri, 08/29/2014 - 13:58

It’s way too easy to get caught up in the negative aspects of the video game industry. A scary vocal minority can quickly bathe our wonderful pastime in the most awful of lights. So instead of focusing on the terrible, I want to take a break and focus on nice things. Like Costume Quest 2.

I went over the basics of Double Fine’s sequel a few months back. Recently, I got to play an opening chunk of the game. Here are five things about it that made me smile.

The original Costume Quest charmed the heck out of me with its rinky-dink costumes that would transform into awesome imaginary warriors when it came time for battle. Things are the same in the sequel, but this time around, the costumes are even weirder. Case in point: Thomas Jefferson. Evidently the precocious youngsters of the CQ universe are history buffs, as is evident in a costume featuring everyone’s favorite founding father. The costume comes equipped with deadly quills to throw at enemies, and a special attack featuring the devestating Declaration of Independence. Double Fine told me that there would be 11 new costumes in the game, but it's going to be hard to top ol' Tommy J.

DreamWorks Teaming with Korra Animation Studio

IGN.com - Fri, 08/29/2014 - 13:58

DreamWorks Animation has inked a four-year deal with South Korea-based animation firm Studio Mir -- known for their work on Nickelodeon's The Legend of Korra -- and is planning to develop four new animated series with the company.

IGN's The Legend of Korra: Book Three Review

Variety reports that each show will be 2D-animated (same as Korra) and consist of 78 episodes. Interestingly, the two companies will co-develop and co-produce the projects, though financing and distribution are still uncertain.

The Legend of Korra: Book Three Review

IGN.com - Fri, 08/29/2014 - 13:56

Warning: Full spoilers from The Legend of Korra: Book Three to follow.

With The Legend of Korra capping off its latest season last week, I think it's safe to say that Book Three was, in my opinion, the show's best season yet, delivering consistently great stories and developing its characters over the course of an expansive adventure. Book Three was also the best season for Korra, and featured some of her most Avatar-like moments: counseling others, making group decisions, and considering consequences before acting on impulse. At this point, I think the young Avatar has truly earned her "legendary" title.

Additionally, Book Three introduced one of the most formidable and intimidating villains yet on the show: Zaheer.

Eisenberg on Lex Luthor's Complexity

IGN.com - Fri, 08/29/2014 - 13:49

Actor Jesse Eisenberg gave a shout-out to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice screenwriter Chris Terrio in a recent interview for helping him craft a villain in Lex Luthor that has psychological depth.

"There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then an actor makes it his or her own," the actor told Total Film.

Eisenberg added, "I got to know one of the writers Chris Terrio, and we were able to discuss things at length and figure out who this person is to create a real psychology behind what is, perhaps, in a comic book, a less than totally modern psychology. I can only say I've been asked to play an interesting role. A complicated, challenging person."

See Lockout Remaster in Action in Halo: The Master Chief Collection

IGN.com - Fri, 08/29/2014 - 13:27

343 Industries has released the first gameplay footage of the Xbox One Anniversary remaster edition of Lockout for Halo: The Master Chief Collection. In it you can see how the new coat of paint is looking (hint: sooooo good), plus a look at the new interactive element of the map: a block of ceiling-mounted icicles you can shoot down and kill players below with, a la the stalactite on fellow Halo 2 map Waterworks.

Below, meanwhile, have a look at a flythrough tour of the remade map as well as a slideshow gallery of original and new Lockout screens, as well as concept art for the new version of the map.
