The Lost Lighthouse: The Weekly Rapture 37 – The Pre-Disappointment

Welcome back to The Weekly Rapture, brought to you by The Lost Lighthouse. This week we about the new trailers for Star Wars VII, Ant-Man and Fantastic Four, and the first Batman Vs. Superman trailer. We also talk about creative differences shifting around the Wonder Woman director and the new Star Wars Battlefront game, while Gary battles computers and the heat in some sort of horrible dystopia of his own making, and Adam realises he uses the same faux-stupidity voice to mock other people’s opinions.

Our main talking point this week was the Daredevil TV show from Netflix and Marvel Studios. We discuss our reactions to the series, the cast and the action. Don’t worry, it’s pretty light on spoilers. We also read out some of your opinions about it too!

There has been a lot of discussion about the length of video games recently and how short is too short for a full retail price game. If the game experiences is relatively brief, and under 10 hours long, what do you think? Does it bother you?

Let us know what you think (with some more slightly constructed answers), and give us your actual opinions and reasons for voting that way in the comments below!

The Argument: Which Project Should Nathan Choose?

1

Help Nathan decide which game idea he should take forward for his Train2Game project!

Here are the concepts (and the details of the project can be found here):

1. A survival horror game called ‘It Begins’. You play a security guard in a large multi-national corporation that specialises in medicine, organ donation and stem-cell research. Your shift starts as normal, however after a blackout, nearly everyone in the building is dead. It turns out a violent poltergeist is loose and is causing havoc and carnage around the building. Your aim is to stay alive and investigate the cause. This can be played on Playstation and Xbox, however it will optimised for Kinect and Oculus Rift for a truly terrifying experience.

2. An untitled, action/adventure sandbox game, where you play a computer hacker. Before I carry on, no this isn’t a Watchdogs clone. You play a hacker who works for the government, but after finding out some ultra-high classified information, you are disposed of. However, you survive and do what you can to take revenge and expose the secrets of the government. Sounds generic, but the idea is that the hacker has the ability to insert himself into the virtual world and run around at will, running from anti-virus, climbing firewalls, disguising himself as viruses, trojans, worms etc. This will be on all platforms.

 

Vote below for your favourite choice!

 

Any thoughts or feedback on Nath’s project, please comment on the full article from yesterday here.

Cheers!
