Oddworld: Strangers Wrath for PSN next Easter !!

Banned
The game marks the franchise’s first outing on a PlayStation console since 1998’s Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus.

Stranger was originally released in 2005. The new version will be download-only.

“Since word got out that we’ve been working with Oddworld Inhabitants there have been many rumours circulating about what we’re working on,” said JAW boss Stewart Gilray.

“Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is the first project in what we believe will be a long and fruitful relationship. Having the chance to update this great title and release it on PS3 is just a brilliant opportunity, not least for us, but for the fans too.”

The game will ship in 720p and will come complete with normal mapping, self-shadowing, re-mastered dialogue, Move support and additional material, of which JAW’s saying nothing as yet.

JAW’s most recent game was PSN shooter Gravity Crash. The British studio announced in July that it was working on Oddworld titles across “multiple platforms”.

It was never meant to be Abe. The Oddworld games were never, ever going to focus soley around Abe. They always intended on creating a universe of characters: en.wikipedia.org/wik…rld


There were the two Abe games, then Munch's Oddysee, then Stranger's Wrath. I did like Stranger, but there were a few annoying little irritants to it. I'll be happiest when they announce a re-release of Munch

Quite like Tomb Raider, played that once, got trapped in the dark and attacked by dogs, **** controls, I mean what was all that about? Bring back pacman,lol



Abe is easy to play.
Just walk a few steps, then fart, then walk a bit more, then fart two times, do a crazy hippy chant then do a massive fart.

Well that's how i played.

I think I need to play the Abe games again now. Annoyance.

Annoyance that you're a girl and you could play them at all,lol. I … Annoyance that you're a girl and you could play them at all,lol. I failed. No likey. Hey you anyway, you still buzzing from your American trip? Jet lag setting in, or been and gone yet? Hope you had a great time, sure you did.



Not only could I play them, I can complete them as well...best girl ever.

I had an awesome time thanks, gone past the buzzing and jet lag...depression has now set in!

I'd agree with this! A friend bought a girl he knew into our party on XBox the other day while playing Bad Company 2. She proceeded to spend the next half an hour screaming like a lunatic when she got killed/couldn't kill. Not attractive.

Would much rather play a game like this with a girl. Most girls I've known normally want to play fighting games or (more recently, anyway) Guitar Hero!

I was certainly agreeing with the sentiment, but by actually being nice to you I believe I'd be breaking some kind of misc protocol and subject to eternal ridicule. Not that I care much for popularity within the misc!

Haha. So which is it...being nice to me or popularity?! Choices, choices!

If making Abe fart is something that you find amusing no matter how many times you do it, then that would seal the deal and I'll forsake any (non-existent) popularity to declare you the best girl ever.

Do continue this exposé. It's fascinating building a picture of someone only for it to be all wrong. Does she like a bit of WOW? Or maybe it's Warhammer?

It's okay, we all have our dirty little secrets. Admittedly, most of us wouldn't tell them to vibeone. Seems like a schoolboy error.

Don't want them looking unattractive for all that typing and clicking now! Embrace your inner geek, I'm pretty sure Vogue will be doing PC game reviews soon anyway. Geek chic 'n all that!

Just remember this thread ending with my acknowledgment of your greatness if that helps.
