FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Pac Eat Pac

Posted on Tuesday, June 15 @ 19:29:54 Eastern by Josh_Laddin
My first day of my first E3 has come to a close, and boy are my feet tired. I saw a lot of cool stuff on the floor today (not nearly as much as I wanted to, but that's what the next two days are for). For now, I'll share my impression of one of the highlights of the day, Pac-Man Battle Royale.


Blake, Colin, and I joined another guy (I didn't catch his name) for a round of extreme Pac-Man action built into an old-school style arcade table. The game is simple and awesome - 4 Pac-Mans (or is that Pac-Men?), each a different color, in a last-man-standing duel to the death. I got stuck as Mr. Pink (I feel your pain now, Steve Buscemi). Regular pellets do nothing, but the power ones turn you into a super-sized Pac-Man that can eat your opponents as well as ghosts. As the game goes on the ghosts come out and movement speeds up until you're frantically trying to edge out the other remaining guy for that last power pellet.

It's an addictive multiplayer experience and I highly recommend grabbing three friends and heading down to your local arcade when it comes out in the fall. For reasons I can't fathom, Namco says it's arcade-only even though it would be a perfect online multiplayer game.

I didn't get a pic of the game itself, but here's Blake getting eaten by Pac-Man, where he will surely find a new definition of pain and suffering as he is slowly digested over a thousand years.
