In September, Double Fine revealed that Jack Black and Jennifer Hale were joining the cast of upcoming point-and-click adventure game, Broken Age. Now, they’ve added two more celebrity voice-actors to the cast: Elijah Wood and Wil Wheaton.
Wood has picked up a starring role and will play Shay, the young boy who is one of the game’s protagonists; he’s the one who is trapped on the spaceship that kind of acts like a lifeboat. There’s a reveal promo after the jump that shows off a lot of new footage of the game and provides hints as to what we can expect regarding the plot.
Additionally, Wil Wheaton has picked up the character of Chris the lumberjack who was originally cut from the game but brought back due to fan demand via the game’s official forums. Chris thinks the trees are out to get him, and so he barricades himself in a house. Yep, this is certainly sounding like the quirky adventure games of yore!
GAMES! We’re assuming you play them? Then you should divert the attention of your eyes towards the inners of this post.
Today is the ninth day. On this day, Ster Kinekor generously provides a bunch of stuff that needs winning.
The 2013 VGX award show (formerly the Spike Video Game Awards) took place on Saturday, 7 December, with Grand Theft Auto V walking away with the night’s biggest award: Game of the Year. Other winners included Bioshock Infinite (best shooter), Gone Home (best independent game), and Titanfall (most anticipated game). You can find the full list of winners for all categories (which include categories such as best character and best voice actor) here. Trailers for the show’s usual line-up of world premier reveals, which include some must-see announcements, are after the jump.
On the eighth day, Corex and Razer deliver some sexiness.
DAY SEVEN. Today the lovely bunch of humans over at Megarom have given us some shiny stuff to offer you the chance to win.
Yes, well, can’t say that’s a surprise. The (now totally revealed to be fake) Fallout 4 teaser site that had many people excited for the last few weeks, has been shut down. The countdown timer was supposed to finish on this coming Tuesday. The attention-seeking gits responsible for the website are calling it a Rickroll. Both Pete Hines and Bethesda moved to distance the publisher from this sort of rubbish and have warned people to only believe what Bethesda says through official channels. So I guess everyone should put away their Pip-Boys for now – nothing to see here folks. Move along.
Hello you fine, fine people, and welcome to the year’s last This Week In Gaming. It’ll also be the last you’ll see of me for 2013, as come this Thursday I’ll be a married man (sorry ladies). But until then I’d be remiss in my duties if not to inform you as to the week’s video game happenings. It’s been a bit of a slow week, as it always is as the year draws to a close. There was however a bit of Xbox One controversy, a retro release on Steam, some troubling news for those anticipating the DayZ alpha, the cast of the Warcraft movie is officially confirmed, Sony defends GT6‘s microtransactions and of course you’ll find the usual batch of videos and NAG highlights. So when you’re finished signing up for all the free stuff around here, hit the jump.
That lovely collection of people over at Razer has sent us another bundle of stuff to offer you the chance to win.
