"Why is it the world we want to play in more than any other? Why do we want elements of an apocalypse in every game that we play?
Is it for the reasons I believe? That we crave the simplicity of knowing our enemies and the strivings for survival on a basic level? Or am I just a terror hungry, vengeance filled, violence craving lady? What do you think?"
"The long awaited I Am Alive has finally made its way to digital distribution services, now available for Xbox 360. As the final title in the Xbox LIVE Arcade House Party campaign, I Am Alive will complete the collection offering gamers who purchase all four by 13th March 2012, a return of 800 Microsoft Points."
"The long awaited I Am Alive from Ubisoft launches this week on Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360, and is also set for release on PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3 in the near future. Despite being originally unveiled as a full retail product, the publisher pulled I Am Alive kicking-and-screaming back to the drawing board and re-revealed it two-and-a-half years later. However, that it managed to survive until launch at all is something that we all should be thankful for."
"GamingUnion: "To say Ubisoft’s mysterious survival title, I Am Alive, has been a long time coming, would be a bit of an understatement. Originally rumored to be a full retail offering under the guidance of Assassin’s Creed producer Jade Raymond, I Am Alive spent a few years in the incubator over at French studio Darkworks before eventually settling at Ubisoft Shanghai for its final stretch. The end result of this roughly four-year process is a downloadable title which seeks to immerse players..."
"The publishers must want to end their fiscal quarters on a high note, as there are a ton of high-profile titles coming out this month. You can’t mention March 2012 without talking about the most anticipated trilogy-closing video game of all-time, Mass Effect 3. The final chapter of BioWare’s galactic soap opera will put an end to Commander Shepard’s story, and whether it works out or not depends on the choices you made in the previous two titles. Mass Effect 3 may overshadow some of the other..."
"Ubisoft Shanghai’s long-awaited title, I Am Alive, announced in 2008, will actually be “alive” on March 7. Set in the fictional city of Haventon, I Am Alive puts you in the middle of a world that suffered from an apocalyptic event (known as, well, “The Event”) one year ago. You control a man who is searching for his lost wife and daughter, and must navigate your way through a city filled with hostile survivors to survive."
"t’s kind of weird doing a top ten list of games that were featured at an event where video gaming wasn’t the primary focus. But then again, it’s kind of weird to go to a event labeled the Consumer Electronics Show and not see many video games, especially considering that consumers love them, and they use electronic components. Nevertheless, after a bit of looking around, we were able to find enough video game pleasure to get our four days’ worth. (Note: they’re not limited to Xbox 360 picks, ..."
"There is a cloud of pessimism in the air, and much like every century or millennium end (cough…Y2K bug…cough), people throughout history like to think of the “End of The World” coming in their lifetime and attribute disasters like the Black Death to signs like misread Mayan prophesies that it is indeed coming soon.
This feeling is mirrored in art: where in the past there were paintings to represent doomsday and world devastation, we now have film and games...
Now that we are living in..."
"Am Alive has been in development for over 5 years at Ubisoft Shanghai. The mysterious action game was assumed to be cancelled until the ESRB recently posted ratings for the game. Today, Ubisoft released new details about the game in the form of a trailer which revealed that not only is the natural disaster title looking pretty awesome, it will also be released this winter on Xbox Live and the Playstation Network."
