Link Out (1/1/2008)

January 1st, 2008

Hey guys, happy new year. I hope you had an enjoyable new year transition. ^_^ Over the past few weeks I’ve built up a nice collection of gaming links to share with you. They are a little out of date but here goes:

Commodore 64 Guitar Hero

This one is quite interesting, its about a project that someone is working on to convert the basic gameplay elements from Guitar Hero onto a Commodore 64.

Udon Comics Interview

I believe that I’ve mentioned these guys before, Udon Comics do the artwork for the Street Fighter comics and manga. They also work on art for World of Warcraft, Darkstalkers and other important comic and gaming franchises. This interview is about their latest selection of Street Fighter comics and manga. You can see some of the covers here as well.

Game Industry Wire have been following the story about Auran (one of Australia’s largest game developers) and the rumours and now confirmation of their bankruptcy. I was originally going to post about my concerns over this matter after receiving an email from PALGN with details on how to enter a competition to win 1 of 1000 copies of Auran’s last game; Fury.

Burnout Paradise Soundtrack – MTV Multiplayer

The Burnout games contain some of the best sountracks for any game series ever. The latest soundtrack for Burnout Paradise was announced. Surprisingly it contains the new Seether single on there too.

Killer Instinct Arena

You might remember the Killer Instinct – Awesomeness in Character Design article that I posted up not too long ago. Now if you have even better memory you might remember that I said that I had some difficulty finding some pictures of the lovely B.Orchid. Well thankfully a reader has come to the rescue and let me know of their site: Killer Instinct Arena which has some images of the babe. So I have taken some images from the site, posted them up in the article. So I want to thank this reader by personally plugging his great site. ^_^
