The Art Of Pokémon Red/Blue Shows The Sketches That Started It All

The Pokémania craze kicked off in the late ‘90s in the states thanks to Pokémon Red and Blue, the Pokémon anime and, of course, the trading card game. Part of the charm behind Pokémon, perhaps captured best in the trading cards, has always been the artistry and imagination put into the design of each Pocket Monster.

In the newest installment in his “The Art Of” series, Youtuber Olivier Laclair takes us through a vignette of the art of Pokémon Red and Blue, guiding us through Red’s (or Blue’s) humble beginnings in Pallet Town as he sets off on his journey to become the world’s greatest Pokémon master. The classic opening sequence between Gengar and Nidorino features an overlay of its concept stills, showing the arrows drawn to choreograph the scuffle, with the top and bottom of the frame scribbled in to illustrate the same widescreen effect present in the game.

Also present are sketches of Red visiting the Pokémon Center and Item Shop in Pewter City, as well as artwork of a battle Red’s Slowbro against another trainer’s Gastly that exudes a profound sense of scale. Plus, the video dances along to an orchestral version of the S.S. Anne theme, making the viewing experience all that much more pleasant.

For more on Leclair’s work, check out his The Art Of Journey video.

Sony Online Shows Us Why H1Z1 Will Take Brains To Survive

Sony Online’s next big project is the zombie-survival MMO, H1Z1. At first glance, you’ll likely get a strong Day Z vibe, but game designer Jimmy Whisenhunt shows what makes it unique.

H1Z1 combines crafting and construction with the “dropped in the woods” concept that Dean Hall’s Day Z introduced. Sony Online is designing some of the game elements, but the emergent AI means that you’ll never know exactly what to expect from the world.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

In the demo, you’ll get a sense for the crafting, construction, and some of the survival elements. For instance, you can use a dew collector to capture fresh water. Alternatively, you can collect dirty water (which trades health for hydration if you drink it) and then filter with charcoal filters or boil in order to purify it.

H1Z1 will keep players on their toes, with each day having different weather. The environment will also react to the different weather. For instance, You can stay dry under trees in order to light a campfire and keep warm.

For more on H1Z1, check out our coverage from E3. The title is going to be headed into early access on Steam soon.

At Capcom's E3 2014 booth, fans had the opportunity to take a photo with a gigantic, life-size, Gore Magala from Monster Hunter statue. A new video details the design and creation process of the impressive statue.

New Batman: Arkham Knight trailer shows off badassery of the Batmobile

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have revealed the first glimpse into the Battle Mode gameplay for Batman: Arkham Knight. Scarecrow has enlisted the help of numerous foes to destroy Gotham City, including the never-before-seen Arkham Knight and his band of merry minstrels…er, military force, and only THE BATMAN can stop them. Check out the Batmobile in Battle Mode below, because it is unbelievably sweet.

First of all, DOSE GRAPHICS. Second, I love how seamless it is for Batman to get in and out of the Batmobile. I was about to refresh the trailer because I thought it messed up, but watch the whole thing to see a fantastic reveal.

Batman: Arkham Knight is due sometime in 2015, for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC. More information on the game can be found here. It looks like a bunch of high profile games have been delayed until 2015, which makes me weep like a baby.
