Battlefield 3 Sole Western Award Winner at TGS

September 20, 2011 -

According to Andriasang only one Western game managed to break into the Future Awards ranks at the Tokyo Game Show - and it wasn't Call of Duty. EA's Battlefield 3 stood out like a sore thumb in the awards list, honored alongside such Japanese darlings as Final Fantasy XIII-2, Final Fantasy Type-0, Monster Hunter G, and Phantasy Star Online 2. The award winners are chosen based on attendee feedback - who are asked to choose their favorites among any game on display on the show floor or announced at the event. A panel of judges selected the final selection from this shortlist of nominees.

Other winners included Asura's Wrath, Dragon's Dogma, and Monster Hunter G from Capcom; Binary Domain and Phantasy Star Online 2 fron Sega; Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Final Fantasy Type-0 from Square Enix; Gundam Extreme VS from Namco Bandai; Legend of Heroes Ao no Kiseki from Falcom; and Dragon's Collection from Konami.

On a slightly related not, the official online beta for Battlefield 3 kicks off September 29 for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. The beta map to be played during the test will be "Operation Metro." Operation Metro pits two teams against each other in Rush Mode (one team destroys several targets, while the other side defends them). Access to the beta will be available on September 27 to PC players who pre-ordered the game through Origin and to console players who pre-ordered Medal of Honor Limited Edition last year.

benohawkThat still isn't Steam pay royalties. At best it is Bethesda not being willing to relicense the music,07/27/2015 - 12:51pm
Infophile(cont'd) different service. This often happened with TV shows, where music was only licensed for broadcast, but not for DVD release. So for many older shows, they either have to relicense it or use different/no music for the DVD release.07/27/2015 - 12:36pm
Infophile@benohawk: It most likely comes down to the original licensing agreement for the music in it. Often those agreements only license it for the medium it first releases in, so it has to be re-licensed if it's rereleased in a different form or through a ...07/27/2015 - 12:35pm
benohawkWhy would steam be paying royalties on anything in quake?07/27/2015 - 12:01pm
black mantaI recommend using the KMQuake II patch which supports .ogg music files, then downloading the music from someplace, then dropping it in to a music folder into the \baseq2 directory.07/27/2015 - 10:32am
black mantaI got Quake 2 during the Steam Quakecon sale. Funny thing is, there's no music for it! Guess Steam didn't want to pay the royalty fees or something.07/27/2015 - 10:30am
black mantaLike EZK, I also have a backlog of games. Right now I'm playing Crysis 3 for the first time, and replaying Quake 2.07/27/2015 - 10:29am
E. Zachary KnightZippy, No. It is because I have a backlog of games a mile long and have not bought to many new games, which includes Mass Effect.07/27/2015 - 9:28am
