Zero Punctuation lambasts Clive Barker's Jericho

Where would we be without Yahtzee and his infinitely entertaining Zero Punctuation reviews? Well, truthfully, we'd be in exactly the same place we are now, but we'd be somewhat less entertained. This week, Zero Punctuation takes on Clive Barker's Jericho and it's an absolute hate-fest. Seriously, ZP usually has a few "it's not that bad" moments, but not this week. If you like Jericho -- not very likely, looking at the statistics -- you'd best avert your gore-loving eyes. Us, we're just glad to have something to brighten up an otherwise dull Wednesday (seriously, did you try this week's XBLA games?).

Jericho: X3F hands-on

As you know, a demo for Clive Barker's Jericho hit Xbox Live Marketplace this morning. Unlike our compatriots at Joystiq, we did not have a chance to test the game at E3, so this was a fresh experience for us. It's clear that the folks at Codemasters really want players to like Jericho, as the demo comes loaded with a very lengthy video explaining the premise and gameplay features of the title. You learn about the character switching dynamic as well as the abilities of the seven squad members. Unfortunately, you only get to utilize three of these squad members during the demo, but we still got a decent idea of how the full game should play.

Jericho demo scared up on XBLM

The demo for Cliver Barker's Jericho is now available on Xbox Live Marketplace. The game centers around a sort of paranormal SWAT team called in to fight the evils of the world. Of course, by evils we mean the otherworldly kind. Each member of the squad has a different weapon set and paranormal specialty like telekinesis or the ability to summon fire. By switching between the various squad members, players can combine their abilities to make the best of any given situation. We'd tell you once again that Joystiq was impressed with the game at E3, but now you can try it out for yourself. Ain't Xbox Live grand?

Prepare for the Jericho demo with new trailer

A new trailer for Jericho has dropped on GameTrailers specifically to get players pumped for the oncoming demo. The trailer essentially just mashes up several snippets of gameplay, highlighting the various squad members and some of their special abilities. We particularly like the heavy weapons guy whose hand is literally locked inside his gun, only popping out when it's time to roast an enemy with pyrokinesis. Oh, and did we mention it's super gory? Well, it is. Of course, that's probably to be expected with Clive Barker's name attached to the project. Check out the demo (see it in HD here) and start impatiently waiting for the demo that arrives tomorrow.

Jericho demo to grace XBLM this Thursday

Word on the street (more specifically from Codemasters' PR department) is that a Clive Barker's Jericho demo is going to hit the Xbox Live Marketplace on Thursday. But we don't have to remind you about the validity of developer announced demos as they end up usually being a tad ... how do we say this ... off a bit. So, pencil in a note for this Thursday's Jericho demo and if it doesn't show up you can blame Codemasters for letting you down and depriving you of murderous killing and death. Our fingers are crossed.

Jericho and Madden Trailers and Rumble Roses DLC

In today's Marketplace Roundup, we've got a couple trailers for you. First off, for Madden NFL 08, EA Sports Producer David Ortiz gives a demonstration of "Hit Stick 2.0", which should be interesting for those into 26% of the 360's retail library. Next up, Clive Barker's Jericho also has a trailer available for your viewing pleasure which isn't available in Asia. Finally, a slew of downloadable costumes are available for Rumble Roses XX, each set costing you 80 Microsoft Points. Oh Joy.

Joystiq takes a look at Clive Barker's Jericho

So, what was the best game at E3 that you haven't heard anything about? According to Joystiq, it might be Clive Barker's Jericho. Apart from featuring gobs of ghastly ghoulies, Jericho also looks to be sporting some very solid gameplay. The primary gameplay element revolves around the character switching dynamic, which gives players a multitude of skills and abilities spread across six different squad members. If the idea of blasting monstrous baddies with mind-controlled bullets sounds exciting. Hit the "read" link to check out Joystiq's in depth preview. Oh, ever wondered what the first person view of decapitation looks like? Yeah, that's in Jericho.

Team features will play a big role in Jericho

IGN received what they call an "eyes-on" preview of Clive Barker's Jericho and got the inside scoop on how the game's team features will work. You see, in Jericho each one of your seven squad members has different abilities and weapons that you have to strategically give orders to so they can unleash death on the enemy. And if the whole giving orders thing isn't getting the job done, one can switch between characters to take a hands on approach at any time. It'll be interesting to see if the whole team dynamic thing will be implemented correctly or if it'll end up being the bastard child of a feature that nobody cares for. No matter, because we know that Jericho is crazy scary and will feature skinless freaks of nature that are hell bent on eating your soul in demonic ways. Which will make the game somewhat fun even if it only lasts fifteen minutes.

Jericho gets a cover, but still missing a face

Clive Barker's Jericho will be coming to the 360 later this year and now we know what box to look for when it comes out. Today, Codemasters released the box art for Jericho (which is suspensefully posted after the break) and it's just as creepy looking as the game. Which, after watching the video and looking through those screenshots, looks pretty fun and twisted. We're definitely optimistic about the potential Jericho has, but we've got our bad game shield raised and ready to defend. Anyway, there is box art awaiting your presence after the break.

Video Marketplace top ten TV and Movies (3/12)

In light of the recent announcement of Video Marketplace being hot on the heels of digital distribution of on demand content, Major Nelson posted up the top ten lists for TVs and Movies for the last week rather than announcing the new content. On the TV side, we have South Park, naturally on top, with UFC Fights, Star Trek Enterprise, and Jericho's HD content making the grade, and even the un-aired Mercy Reef/Aquaman pilot got on the list, after being released on the 12th. For films, We have The Departed and Snakes on a Plane in the top two, albeit in 480p. Crank, Saw III and The Illusionist also got proper recognition. For the complete list for both TV and Movies, check after the break.

Clive Barker's Jericho looks promising

It's been some time since we heard anything new about Clive Barker's Jericho. In fact, the last thing we heard was the announcement of the game itself. It seems 1UP thought the same thing and has uncovered both a new trailer and posted a preview for the game. So, what's Jericho all about? What we already knew is that it's about a special government squad called Jericho Team that specializes in dealing with paranormal threats.

A Jericho trailer for Halloween

Scant hours ago, we found some shots of Clive Barker's Jericho. Now we just dug up a teaser trailer on GameTrailers. Full of TV "white noise" effects -- it's the new bullet time -- the trailer is sure to scratch that horror itch. Granted, there's not really any gameplay, but it conveys the mood quite well. You can check out the trailer after the break (age verification required).

Jericho screens to give you nightmares

Just in time for Halloween, Planet Xbox 360 has a few new shots of Clive Barker's Jericho. A squad-based horror-themed FPS developed by Codemasters, Jericho offers players "an overload of sensory horror shock." Looking at these shots of bloody, grisly, congealed, nasty monsters, we'd be hard-pressed to disagree. The game focuses on a special squad -- named "Jericho Team," of course -- that serves the government in regulating paranormal threats. Boy, that sounds familiar. An interesting twist is that each squad member has a different arcane specialty (clairvoyance, alchemy, etc.) We hope one of them is a firestarter. We don't know much more about the game at this point, but at least the screens look nice. Any Clive Barker fans out there hoping Jericho will keep them up at night?
