Art and games: Okami and El Shaddai developer interview


3:00 PM on 06.13.2011



Calling all Okami fans, and fans of beautiful games in general: I hope you're keeping an eye out for El Shaddai. The game is almost here, and the demo has been out for a while, so if you haven't checked the game out yet, now is the time.

Still not convinced? Then just check out this interview with the game's director, Takeyasu Sawaki. This guy is a badass, taking on taboos and religious imagery in gaming with confidence and conviction. His interpretation of the Nephilim -- the offspring of humans and fallen angels -- is particularly eye-opening. Like I say in the interview, only a true artist could come up with stuff like this, and sadly, the work of true artists is becoming more and more rare in today's retail gaming scene.

I really hope El Shaddai does well when it's released this summer. If it does, maybe more artists will get a crack at heading up bigger-budgeted titles such as this one.

I wish this Mario Kart movie was real

What happens when you apply the over-the-top seriousness from that Need for Speed movie trailer to Mario Kart? Magic. Thanks, GamesRadar.more

The first trailer for the Need for Speed movie is here

Oh you didn't forget, did you? There's going to be a Need for Speed movie, and it's going to star Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul. The first trailer for the movie has plenty of cliché going for it, you know, the same kind of stuff you've seen from movies about racing cars before. Need for Speed (the movie) revs up its first trailer [Flixist]more
