Award-Winning Voice Actor Jennifer Hale Joins The Long Dark

hinterlandThe world of The Long Dark is one of harsh beauty. The same elements that may kill you with indifference, haunt you with their majesty. The wind howls, the snow falls, and the aurora hangs above you, a breathtaking reminder of what humanity has just lost. The developers have talked a lot thus far about rugged bearded men, the rough “coffee and cigarettes” men like bush pilot Will Mackenzie, who have the stern stuff needed to survive in this post-digital, post-disaster world – but every bit equal to them are the strong women who face the new frontier, and today Hinterland Games announced that my absolute favourite female voice actor, Jennifer Hale, has officially joined the cast of The Long Dark. In a project funding update – at press time, the Kickstarter campaign stood at $ 161, 514.00 with 5.5 days remaining to reach the studio’s goal of $ 200, 000.00. Read the rest of this entry »

Review: The Wonderful 101

Nintendo CanadaFor such a potentially awesome game, I had a really difficult time playing The Wonderful 101, a recent release from Platinum Games and Nintendo for the Wii U.The game’s environment is very colourful and full of hiding spots for treasures, enemies and puzzles, a typical Nintendo formula. The premise of the game is that a band of unlikely heroes must save Earth and its citizens from an onslaught of giant mechanical aliens, whose name, by the way, is an acronym puzzle. Teamwork is a necessity for our heroes, as it takes their combined effort to formulate weapons and tools in order to move through the game world. True to form, each hero has his or her own super power, mundane identity and colour, a la Power Rangers – enabling our valiant fighters to form fists, bridges, swords, guns and more.
