Youtube channel PtoPOnline has managed to get their hands on some early development from 2003 of a Metallica car game.
Being developed by Black Rock Studios Damage Inc: Metallica looks from the video like it may have been a post-apocalyptic car destroying game or a misson based car game in the vein of the later
released Red Faction: Guerrilla (yes I know that was set on Mars).
It's interesting that there does not seem to be any references to Metallica in the game even with it being such an early development. I wouldn't be expecting music but if you didn't know the title of the game you wouldn't think that it was named after the band.
Regular readers (if there are any left) will have noticed by now that it has been fairly quiet on here for a good few months now. This is because I've hit a slump in gaming and writing.
Since I last posted back in February I've played through and completed one game, which wasn't even that great, and when I do game all that I pretty much play is Pro Evolution 6 on the DS. I think that I'm slowly starting to come out of the slump as I've really been enjoying Diner Dash on the DS (it's funny the games that can revive your passion) that I purchased recently and I'm slowly starting to get the itch to write again.
Give me a few more weeks and hopefully I may start posting again.
No, thankfully it's not a film about how the blocks came to be.
According to reports Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand)is developing and producing a biopic based on Alexey Pajitnov who designed Tetris.
For those who don't know about the origins of Tetris it was developed in 1984 by Pajitnov whilst he was working for the Soviet Academy of Sciences in Moscow. The legal and licensing rights then became very murky with several companies 'owning' the rights to the game.
