Re: Werewolves in Computer Games and Video Games

I'll take the liberty to announce the first set of game then. wink

The "Bloody Roar" series features dozens of zooanthropes, as they call them (they range from elephant to tiger to rabbit), and among them is unmistakably the character dubbed Yugo The Wolf. big_smile

"Bloody Roar" is basically a caged-match-style of game.  You fight against another plyaer or the computer, and it can even be against the same character as well.  Each character has a different style.

Yugo is pretty much the posterchild of the game, as I've seen him both on the previews for commericals and in each of the games' intros.  If you start out, definetely pick him b/c his style is well-rounded.  His back history apparently has 'em as, appropriately, a boxer, and he's quite apt at both punching and claw slashing...and kicking is another specialty of his. wink

Its a worthwhile game for PS and PS2 and there's even version that run on NintendoGameCube I believe.

Re: Werewolves in Computer Games and Video Games

Hunter: The Reckoning Redeemer for the Xbox has werewolves in it. There is a code you can put in to play as a werewolf.

Also World of Warcraft for the PC has werewolves.

Re: Werewolves in Computer Games and Video Games

The first werewolf PC game I ever played was Gabriel Knight III. It's basically like an interactive detective mystery.

Re: Werewolves in Computer Games and Video Games

You're mistaken, Speedbump. Gabriel Knight III had only vampires. The second Gabriel Knight game had werewolves.


Silly, werewolf! Tricks are for ninjas! XD

Re: Werewolves in Computer Games and Video Games

Oops... my bad. It was the one that was subtitled "The Beast Within."
Really fun game. I wonder if it'll run on modern computers.

Re: Werewolves in Computer Games and Video Games

Three words  "City of Heroes"  they have werewolves and you even get rewarded when you kill (capture) a number of them.  There is even a mission in which you are given a special power that allows you to temporarly have one for a pet.  Caution:  this game is highly addictive

Re: Werewolves in Computer Games and Video Games

"City of Heroes"? Yeah, a friend of mine has that and he has a great team of heroes he set up himself - no werewolves, but a super android, psychic, and mutant team. I heard it's really great, though I'll have to watch my friend play it and see for myself. "City of Villians", part 2 of the series, is due later...wink

It depends on the modifications on the installations and the computer's free space. Probably it'll work, but try it out and see.

I liked the Ludwig II storyline and the Wagner lost opera in the game the best! The wolves were cool, too! big_smile I've beaten all 3 games with perfects (not on the first tries, mind you!)! Have you got a perfect score on it? wink

Re: Werewolves in Computer Games and Video Games

I got Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow with Kung-fu grips and his Transformers! Woo-hoo!!! big_smile

My first werewolf game, believe it or not, was "Altered Beast"! I remembered playing this game when I was a teen, and it was enjoyable to see anthromorphic transformations: wolves especially! Another game I played was a cool-looking 4-player Konami side-scrolling fighting game in which there was a fencer guy that actually transforms himself into a werewolf after getting certain power-ups. I think the name of it was "Anthromorphic Force", I believe. The background music was totally awesome and you can pull off combos in this one, which I liked! People kept looking at me going through the game without getting my werewolf friend hurt and breezing it through towards the end and playing again! I recommend playing this game if you see it! big_smile

Re: Werewolves in Computer Games and Video Games

Woo, lots to respond to.

Denim: I own City of Heroes, but didn't renew my subscription after my preview month. I didn't see any werewolves sad Perhaps they're closer to the endgame content.

Ninja Part 1: No, I never got a perfect. It was a tough game the first time around.

Ninja Part 2: There's a remake of "Altered Beast" coming out for the Playstation2 in late February'ish. Unfortunately, it's going to be Japanese-release only... bastards.

LOL! Actually, I want his action figures and the comics! wink Ninja & Zage, you can have the car.

Seriously, I never played any of those latest video games but I have played Rampage in the arcade. Of course, I was Ralph the Giant Werewolf, smashing my way around the city!

Data East marketed this in 1990.  By 1992, it was on clearance at every KayBee Toys outlet.

Re: Werewolves in Computer Games and Video Games

At this moment, I'm working on some sketches for the "Lycan Rising" video game. Here's the site of the group that will be making it: http://www.riogroup.org . They're looking for some good, game experienced people to join the team, too. Of course, they mainly want people from this area (Rio Grande Valley of Texas).

*sigh* As a game fan, I really would like to go, but Texas is too far away from me (plus, no money!)! Grrrr! :x Are they looking for experienced drawers to put on the site as approval?

Re: Werewolves in Computer Games and Video Games

No clue Ninja, but feel free to check out the site and see what it says. By the way, the site is supposed to undergo some big changes soon, so you may want to keep watch.

No, unfortunatly.  But there is a mission that involves you getting one as a pet to help fight with you.  Also the character creation screen allows you to make characters as feline as possible, so you could probably do something wolf like like that, but not to wolfish, more like really catish, just give it a real bad ass wolf name.
