Things And Stuff: Thursday News Roundup

(Updated throughout the day.) Counter-Strike: Source updated, Predator: Concrete Jungle delayed, Suikoden director working on one-shot-kill PS2 action title, first PC EyeToy style game due for Christmas.

Valve has updated Counter-Strike: Source again through Steam. The changes should download themselves and take effect when you next restart the content download service wotsit. Amongst the changes this time are fixes to the spectator cameras and support for Windows 98 and Millennium. The Terrorists will also now win if all the hostages are dead and the round timer expires. (Which surely doesn't affect too many people at the moment, given that the beta focuses on de_dust, and there are no hostages on that map?)

IGN is reporting that Predator: Concrete Jungle will no longer be out before the end of the year, and that any budding preds will have to wait until the first quarter of 2005 to get their disgusting, mangled alien faces on it. Developed by Eurocom, Predator: Concrete Jungle gives us control titular alien types as they track down members of a Mafia family in the 1930s and then 2030s, for reasons we can't remember off the top of our head. There are some screenshots here and the game's due out on PS2 and Xbox. Albeit not this year.

According to various reports based on an article in Japanese Dengeki PlayStation magazine, Taito is working a new PS2 3D action game called Tsukiyo ni Saraba (or "Farewell to the Moonlit Night"), and apparently the game is being produced by Yoshitaka Murayama, whose previous credits include direction of Konami's Suikoden series, which ought to catch some of your attention. His new game will feature a blonde gunman called Crow who can dodge bullets in slow motion as he seeks vengeance for his mother's murder. So what, you might say, but apparently the twist is that Crow can only take one shot before he dies, and the game takes on a rather different feel as a result. Oh, and if Murayama's name didn't excite, then the soundtrack will be composed by Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger, Xenosaga) and Miki Higashino (Suikoden).

EyeToy-style PC game Camgoo is due out in time for Christmas this year, publisher Rebel Games (who they?) tells us. If you know anything about EyeToy on PS2 then you know the drill - players stand in front of a webcam (a genuine webcam this time, since it's a PC game) and have their actions captured and converted into controller input in a series of mini-games. The first collection of games, Camgoo Sixplay, features mini-games called Treasure Trouble, Pixie Presents, Keepie Uppie, Box a Bot, Beat Master and Cam Kong, and you can find some screenshots of the thing here.
