On Monday night's show:
Will Wright - That's right, the designer of Sim City, Sim Ant, The Sims, and
currently working on Spore is on GG. Famous for giving players the tools to
create their own narrative, and one of the few talents professionally
recognised outside of the gaming industry.
Army of Two - This one made a lot of noise at E3 with it's promise of unique
co-op gameplay, dark humour and deep political message. Hype around it has
quietened somewhat though, will it live up to expectations?
Advance Wars: Dark Conflict (Days of Ruin) - The latest in the turn-based
tactical series on the DS is far darker and grimmer than its predecessors.
Well...about as dark and grim as you can get with pixelated toy soldiers and
super-long, super-cute Japanese dialogue...
All that plus a compilation of advice from talent at the GDC on how to come
up with your own idea for a game, and submit it to the Good Game Game
competition. You can download any ep of Good Game from
www.abc.net.au/goodgame - our forums still suck but they give you the power to change Australia's only show exclusively about games!
Good Game airs Monday nights @ 9pm on ABC2, and late Friday nights after
jjjTV on ABC1.
Enjoy the show!
