Clones, Drones and Sex – it’s Friday

Well, I’ve been supping on Camomile Tea and enjoying a week of not playing video games, instead watching them on the Internets.

We would have been remiss in not talking about Dead Island, but you know what – I am sure you have seen that trailer. The debate on whether this is manipulative trash or a heartfelt piece of cinematography, well that is pretty much in the eye of the beholder.  Instead, I’d like to embed a fitting Minecraft tribute to the original DI trailer:

Minecraft is everywhere, it is awesome… unfortunately maybe a bit too awesome because now we are starting to see copycat games; dangerously similar games to the point of possible copyright infringement. Anyway here is, errr, FortressCraft for the Xbox LIVE Indie game scene (WARNING: sound levels are a bit wonky and the trailer may induce Minecraft nerd rage).

Will it actually get released? Who knows. Will someone at Arcadian Rhythms play it if it does? I can think of one person who will…

Finally, we knew that Woolie was very keen to play Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but we didn’t realise he was that keen on playing it:

Gawd bless ‘im, he is now getting himself put on every gaming site from Kotaku to Destructoid. As well as receiving invites to have the video aired on G4TV.

*Wipes tears from collective eyes*

They grow up so fast.

    I am half-planning to play FortressCraft for review… I just don't want to pay for it. Gah! Maybe if I send Notch a love-letter by way of apology.

    This isn't the first blatant MineCraft clone; there are plenty of others:

    But I think this will be the first on consoletoy.

    Woolie, I salute you. I wouldn't do the same for MVC3, but I would for… I dunno, something I really like. EDF?

    You can tell I am way out of the PC know when I posted that.

    It is only a dollar, so I would bite at that price.

      Yeah, but it's a dollar going to rip-off merchants. :/

        But look at the lovely water textures… Taken straight from the XNA libraries, and it has Avatar support!

          Wow, maybe our avatars should play in it together! We could unlock some new t-shirts!
