Web Games-2D Action Games NAM

“ZipGames” wants to tell us the story of a great warrior of the past, ancient times.

He had a close friend and companion in those dark and terrible days that lay ahead: “Oki” the dwarf.

In a time where there is no time, in a place which is not a place, I “Oky” write.`

Of a once great warrior who saved a kingdom that is not a kingdom in a past which is not the past, or the future, but forever.

Because legends are eternal. And so is the legend of “Nam”

Rhythm-action game

EA today announced the development of Zubo, a new wholly-owned, original intellectual property, created for 7-11 year old kids. Zubo is a music-based rhythm-action game scheduled to ship worldwide later this year, exclusively for the Nintendo DS.

Players enter the world of Zubalon to help its inhabitants, the Zubos, and defeat an evil force bent on world domination. Players can befriend the Zubos they meet along the way, feed and nurture them, help them gain skills and strength, and assist them in their battles with the enemy, the Zombos.

A key element to Zubo is music, which is intrinsic to Zubalon from its tuneful plant life through to its currency of musical notes. The player will use the music to drive the battles forward, synchronising their stylus action and tapping in time with the musical beats to win.

There will be total of 55 Zubos to find and recruit to a player’s squad, plus a bunch of mini-games.

Paramount Gears Up For Video Game Publishing

Movie and TV studio Paramount revealed it wants a taste of the video game publishing biz and plans to partially or completely puts its money behind a number of games based on a variety of the company’s movie franchises (be they new or old). No names or titles were mentioned at this time, while it is known that the very first games are slated to arrive later during 2008.

Paramount isn’t the only major major movie studio to hop on the video game bandwagon. Warner Bros. Interactive, for one, has certainly been in the picture for a while. One of Paramount’s most powerful franchises is Star Trek, but the rights to make Star Trek games are in the hands of Bethesda.

Mass Effect 2 Will Be Released On PC and Xbox at the Same Time ?

Since Mass Effect was announced for the PC, people have been wondering whether the upcoming sequel would also be a timed exclusive for the Xbox 360 or if it would just be released at the same time. Senior manager with BioWare, Matt Atwood, responded to these inquiries in recent interview:

“We haven’t announced plans for timing on Mass Effect 2, period, so at this point we’re not really ready to talk about it, but because we’ve got a really great PC fan base we think it’s really important to deliver the PC experience as quickly as possible. Look for more news on that soon.”

From that and the fact that EA is now holding the reins, I’d say PC gamers can expect to see the sequel at about the same time as Xbox owners. At the very least, they might not have to wait around for months to find out what happens in the latest adventures of Shepard and Co.
