Dawn of War 3 and the Celebration of Death

Dawn of War 3 and the Celebration of Death

At the end of Relic's launch trailer for Dawn of War 3, a battle-scarred grunt gazes up at a looming giant. The soldier knows he's about to die. He raises his sword at the impossibly huge enemy, almost in salute. He smiles.

It's not so much that the character is unafraid of his own death, more that he feels he has satisfactorily completed his own destiny, which is to die.

Dawn of War 3's entire trailer is deeply fascinated with death. Its morbid voice-over is a dirge, traipsing through a glittering arcade of merciless violence. Flesh being sliced and stomped is its mournful harmony.

Superhot VR is a completely new game in the Superhot universe, and it looks amazing

Get ready to sweat

The Superhot team thought that getting the game running in virtual reality would be a simple thing: Spend a few days working on that version of the game, get some publicity and make fans happy.

"Turns out that's not even remotely close to reality," Tomasz Kaczmarczyk told Polygon. "Back in 2014 we found one part of the Superhot experience that worked really well in VR and shipped it as a 5 minute tradeshow demo for Oculus DK2. It was loads of fun, people loved it and the extra publicity gave a huge boost to our Kickstarter campaign but it also opened our eyes to how much intricate research we gotta do before we can create a satisfying, fully fledged, awesome VR-bound Superhot."

Twisted Pixel bringing Wilson's Heart to Oculus starring Peter Weller and Rosario Dawson

about X hours ago from

Twisted Pixel is back, and if Wilson's Heart is any indication, the crew behind 'Splosion Man and Comic Jumper has developed a bit of an edge since breaking apart from Microsoft. The studio's new Oculus game was just announced on YouTube's live E3 stream and the black-and-white horror mystery looks darker than any of its previous projects.

Twisted Pixel CCO Josh Bear said that the idea for Wilson's Heart (which the studio used to casually refer to as "The Hands Game") is one the studio had ruminated on for quite some time. But it really took shape when the team began experimenting with the Oculus Touch controller to let the player use their own hands to explore a richly-detailed world. The player's goal? To recover the heart of their avatar Robert Wilson whose ticker has been replaced by a mysterious gadget that's incorporated into the gameplay.

Peter Weller (most notably from The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension but also, yes, RoboCop) leads the cast as Wilson, and will be joined by Rosario Dawson (Netflix's Daredevil) and Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2). Though it was not explicitly announced during the reveal, we figure it's safe to assume Wilson's Heart bears no connection to the House episode of the same name.
