Michelle D is still working on the Tiger's Claw's barracks, but work has also spread to the bar. The shot below show how the room is taking shape, and there's even some prototype pilots inserted for scale. A starfield out the window is a nice touch, but it'll look even better with some color!
Good 'ole Shotglass dispenses more then just fine drinks, as his subtle nods coach you through yet another _______ conversation with _______.
I've noticed that nothing in the image shows any depth, I assume for simplicity. The table tops, chairs and bar top show depth but more for the players benefit. The simulator has a bit of forced perspective to show the screen a bit more then it should. The floor is the only clear reference for perspective.
Microsoft announced a major new hardware revision of the Xbox 360 today at the 2010 Electronics Entertainment Expo. The slim XBox 360 250 GB console also includes 802.11n wifi for $299 in the US. As of last week, that same price point got you an XBox 360 Elite with a 120 GB hard drive that required a separate $80 wifi adapter. Old XBox systems in stores will receive a $50 price cut, so the hard drive-less Arcade unit can be found for as little as $150. The new XBox should be available in stores this week! If you held off on a 360 purchase before, now's the time to act! Then get your Wing Commander Arena on for only $10.
Electronic Arts is also announcing a slate of new titles today. Highlights include Dead Space 2, Medal of Honor, Monopoloy Streets and EA Sports Active 2, which supports the Project Natal/Kinect controllerless input system.
