Torino 06: Images & trailer

Torino 06: Images & trailer

2K Games released the first trailer of the official Olympic Winter Games game (game game game). I also added some images which were released earlier this week. Looks great (for an this-gen game), and it's nice to see an official Olympics game without any console exclusivity.

There's this thing called a market for casual gamers.

Yep, i always hire out olypics games for when my mates come round, just a good laugh.

The only Olympic game that has ever been good was Track and Field on NES. I can't remember one that was good after that. I had Nagano Winter Olympics on the N64 and it was just about the worst thing I've ever played.

Athlete Kings is the best I can recall, that game was awesome.

I thought Nagano was okey. Most of the "sports" in it sucked, but there were some stuff which were fun multiplayer, the "fast-skating" for example.

so thoughtful of you to speak for all of us, but I'll do just fine for myself, thanks.

I remember a really nice Winter Olympics game on the Sega Saturn.

Even worse than Superman 64? :)

I used to play one on the PS1 where it was all about tapping two buttons as fast as you could to succeed

I loved the winter olympics games on the Saturn back in the day. Here's hoping this could actually be good.

find out if it has Curling in it!

Nah ya all wrong...

summer games for the atari 2600 and winter games for the c-64 was the SHIT! ;)

Yea the Athletic Kings and Winter Heat for Saturn ruled. About this game is that for the Xbox 360, because the graphics looking pretty average, looks like a pc game and not next gen.

track and field now that was a button bashing game, but ohh boy did i enjoy it :D

who knows maybe we will be able to play track and field via WIFI on a multiplayer online service on the nintendo revoultion!

we can hope anyway.

I think it's probably a good idea to make it more obvious which format the news concerns. I know the Xbox logo means Xbox and the 360 logo means 360, but it's clearly still a bit too vague for some people.

We _MUST_ have an winter olympic Track & Field in Xbox Live Arcade in time for the winter olympics, they must create one. :D

I don't think it would make the blindest bit of difference, people don't read the comments or look at the logos anyway, they just look at the pictures! :)

Maybe a legend above the news posts would help, or we could have new icons, which are larger and incorporate the words "Xbox" and "Xbox360"

Anyone want to try their hand at it?
(I think I'll try something).

Really, don't they relly care, really?

I loved Nagano Winter Olympics for the N64. Had so many different game modes to play. This game looks fun
Commented on 2005-11-28 04:01:41
wow, looks great!

Take Two should get the NHL team to do the hockey and the Amped team to do the skiing and snowboarding. It'd be cool to get a really great olympics game.

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but i don't see him as THE drake. and so i'd rather they get someone else to do that. (54 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog you don't need to see the same actor take on the role and grow up and age with it. in fact i'd rather they not do that. i can see tom holland as origins, U3 street urchin drake (55 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @droezelke: depends entirely how they tackled it. i could totally see a movie situation where a young drake is being played by holland and an older drake being played by fillion. (57 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @KORNdog: He's a bit too old to start a possible movie franchise. I'd rather see a fairly young and good actor. On the other hand, game movies.... (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: His character in P&R was too unbelievable? So Nic'sk, Aubrey's, Aziz's,...characters were believable in comparison? (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog He really should have been Drake in movies back when firefly went down the drain. He was a good age and fitness level at that point. I'm interested to see how Tom Holland does in the role. (11 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I think Fillion is like a perfect Drake. But he'd need some serious training to do it full justice. Right now he's a bit too out of shape. But personality wise he nails it. (11 Hours ago)
