3D Dots of Doom!

June 14, 2010

We featured Jason Poage’s initial creations for PS3-exclusive 3D Dot Game Heroes last month, and he’s not been resting on his pixellated laurels. He’s gone all retro and produced a new range of characters based on the FPS classic Doom. Here’s what he has to say on his continued fascination with the game and its associated online editors:

I’m not sure what it is about 3D Dot modeling that makes me so drawn to it. I guess that I just enjoy working with limitations and constraints, using them to do an impression of the subject I’m trying to portray. Or maybe I spent too much time playing with Legos as a kid, I don’t know.”

You can read more about Poage’s (aka @zi11ion) inspirations over on his blog. Hit the jump for images of his Doom set, or head over to his Q-Block page to see the actual models.

After oscillating wildly between RPGs and survival horror titles over the past few weeks, Update #8 consists of a pair of RPGs… and a survival horror title. Joining Lost Odyssey and Infinite Undiscovery on the ol’ Xbox 360 are similar efforts Enchanted Arms and Eternal Sonata. Meanwhile, the PS1 gets a further shot in the arm with Resident-Evil-with-dinosaurs, Dino Crisis. Full prices after the jump.

The tips posts on Vehicle Warfare and Rush Mode for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 are still proving very popular here on infinitecontinues, as people continue to invest time and effort in becoming better at Dice’s COD-killer. Although I haven’t played it very much recently, I still sank dozens and dozens of hours into Rush mode (easily my favourite play type) and noticed enough patterns emerging to put together a little guide for getting a lot of points on the vast desert map, Arica Harbor. These tips are for the Attackers – I find it easier to score points as Defenders by just staying close to M-Coms or being aggressive and pushing forward into the Attacker’s base. As Attackers, however, a little bit more strategy is needed. Should this guide prove useful and there are requests for more, I’ll consider writing more guides for the other Rush maps. For now, though, hit the jump for detailed analysis on how to dominate Arica Harbor.

Thank you to the guys at The Tanooki, Attack Of The Fan Boy, Gamesradar, Capcom Unity and the Capcom Europe Blog for featuring the first two sets of Megaman Videogame Mini-Minimalism recently. To celebrate, the third set from (you guessed it) Megaman 3 are now published over on the Flickr set, featuring another classic array of memorable bosses. This time round we have (clockwise from top left) Needleman, Snakeman, Shadowman, Topman, Hardman, Geminiman, Sparkman and Magnetman. Hope you enjoy them! More coming soon.

Another week, another clutch of survival horror titles through the door. This time, we have some little-known horror RPGs for the PlayStation, in the form of Koudelka and Galerians. Lara Croft again makes what seems like a weekly appearance in her latest game, Tomb Raider: Underworld for the PS3. Dead Space once again makes a return to the library after being traded in when my first Xbox 360 RRODed on me, but this time on PS3. And, finally, after years of waiting for a lowish price, I snap up the much-loved Shadow Of The Colossus, which joins its stablemate Ico in the rapidly expanding PS2 collection. Full details of this week’s update after the break.

After enjoying a trip back to simpler times with the unique Text Zedventure, I tracked down its creator Matthew Reynolds to talk about his game. After the break, Matthew tells us why he chose Save The Rhino as the charity which some of the sales proceeds are going to, how he has absolutely no coding skills and still has a videogame under his belt, and what the name Text Zedventure is really all about…

After a mini break playing big new releases Red Dead Redemption and ModNation Racers over the past week, this Collection update sees the return of much more thrifty pleasures. Continuing the survival horror theme from a few weeks ago, we have Alone In The Dark: The New Nightmare for the original PlayStation and Resident Evil: Outbreak File #2, one of the numerous spin-offs to the main zombie series. Another well-known franchise gets its first last-gen entry into the Collection, with Ratchet & Clank on the PS2. And filling a gap in the Collection is Tomb Raider II for the PS1. Full details after the break.
