New Earthworm Jim, MDK, Descent, and More In Planning!

  File this one under the "big news" category, at least for me, because it isn't everyday you get announcements this exciting. Interplay has issued a press release announcing that they'll are developing a number of games, all of which boast some rather high-profile names. First, a Fallout massively multiplayer online game is in the planning stages, and that makes me very excited.

   But, even more exciting is Interplay confirming that they'll be putting out sequels to franchises such as Earthworm Jim, Descent, Dark Alliance (of Baldur's Gate series), and MDK! Most of you should, no doubt, know Earthworm Jim. And I hope a lot of you guys recall the MDK games. In any case, recreating these franchises for the next-generation seems almost ideal, especially Descent and MDK.

   Interplay Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Herve Caen said, "2007 set the foundation for our growth strategy. Going forward, we have the vision, unique intellectual property, and low debt and operational costs to help us pursue financing for our various projects. Our new Website will streamline our ability to communicate development progress with the public, share brand information with the fans and support our customers."

   If you've never played MDK (short for: Murder Death Kill) or its awesome sequel for the PC, Dreamcast, and PS2 you missed out on a very fine action game. If you come across a used copy on eBay or a store, pick it up and give it a shot - at most, it'll cost you $5. We're also very curious as to how Earthworm Jim's artistic style will translate to the next-gen.

   Now...to wait.

Baldurs Gate Dark Aliance. HAHAHAHA. Yay.

My favorite games last generation in order:
Medal of Honor Rising Sun - Only the online portion.
Resident Evil Outbreak 1 2.
Syphon Filter the Omega Strain.
Dark Alliance and Champions games.
As you can see, I like games that didn't get very good reviews. I like ICO, SotC, God of War, FFX, Okami, etc. too, but the ones above are special to me. It is really nice to see at least one of those coming to this gen. Now if only I could get some sequels to the others.
