Watch the Portal 2 E3 demo and smile

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2551 days, 7 hours, 4 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 29, 2010 11:55:06 PM GMT
There are more than a few great things in this video (which covers the first part of our E3 single-player demo; six more parts are expected this week). The first is the introduction of a cheeky, British personality orb. He's cheeky, British, and we already love him. And GLaDOS. Oh, GLaDOS, how we have missed you. Anyway, just try to watch this video without smiling (or outright laughing). We dare you. Go ahead. You monsters. (more)

Interview: Driver: San Francisco creative director Martin Edmondson

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2551 days, 7 hours, 6 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 29, 2010 11:52:54 PM GMT
Formed in the mid-1980s, Reflections Interactive has been making games for longer than you might remember. While the studio has franchises like Shadow of the Beast and Destruction Derby under its belt, its longest standing franchise is Driver. This fall the wheelman returns in Driver: San Francisco, and Reflections -- now owned and operated by Ubisoft -- is once again steering the ride. (more)

PlayStation Plus coming via PS3 firmware 3.40 (update: now available)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2551 days, 22 hours, 51 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 29, 2010 8:08:44 AM GMT
At last, the first post-E3 firmware update for the PlayStation 3, and as you might've suspected, this one's got PlayStation Plus packed into the mix. We've talked about the service a bit so far, but to recap, $50 annual nets you a 50 percent discount on PSN titles, early access to betas, and one hour of demo time on select full titles (among other benefits).

Twisted Pixel helping with Turbine-developed console MMO

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2552 days, 23 hours, 10 minutes ago
Monday, June 28, 2010 7:49:29 AM GMT
More from Twisted Pixel already? The digitally prolific studio that brought us The Maw and 'Splosion Man (in the same year, no less) -- not to mention the still-in-development Comic Jumper -- has quietly announced "a contract with Turbine to help them build an awesome new MMO intended for consoles." Yep, for consoles. Unfortunately, the developer seems to be keeping mum on more details, saying, "If you want more than that, you'll have to take it up with Turbine, because we can't spill the beans on their... (more)

Preview: The Agency's Player vs Player mode

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2552 days, 23 hours, 18 minutes ago
Monday, June 28, 2010 7:41:25 AM GMT
For me, the selling point of MMOs is the huge, open world; a world full of other actual human beings who I can interact with and who can interact with me (almost like real life!). So when I snuck in some time with The Agency at Sony Online Entertainment's E3 booth this year, it was hard for me to shake the feeling that I was playing an Unreal Tournament-style, Ijji.com shooter (one powered by a modified Unreal Engine 3, no less) rather than an MMO. Sure, the Deathmatch trappings of my demo didn't help, ... (more)

Jaffe's got a filmmaking Sweet Tooth for PSN

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2555 days, 23 hours, 14 minutes ago
Friday, June 25, 2010 7:45:47 AM GMT
We've been fooled before by Twisted Metal creator David Jaffe and his Twitter account, so we'll treat his recent statements expressing interest in making a Sweet Tooth-based, "low-budget slasher movie," with with the same trepidation we reserve for buying ice cream from an evil clown. That said, his phrasing is pretty straightforward: "I want us to make an honest to goodness, low-budget slasher movie and sell it on PSN exclusive. Peeps saying we are making a PSN Sweet Tooth GAME got it wrong." (more)

THQ merchandises the Hell out of Darksiders

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2555 days, 23 hours, 14 minutes ago
Friday, June 25, 2010 7:45:45 AM GMT
Sure, you might have liked Darksiders well enough, but we know what you really wanted from the game: your very own War to lead his own tiny Apocalypse into your living room. THQ is obliging this desire with a line of Darksiders merchandise produced in collaboration with partners in the publishing and toy industries. (more)

Time Crisis: Razing Storm trailer shoots up your browser

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2555 days, 23 hours, 21 minutes ago
Friday, June 25, 2010 7:38:31 AM GMT
During Sony's E3 keynote, a new Time Crisis game was revealed in Time Crisis: Razing Storm. As you can see in the trailer past the break, Razing Storm features a lot of the same stuff you've come to expect from the franchise: you shoot dudes and you shoot furniture. Frankly, we think there are better ways to evict tenants and remodel homes, but maybe that's just us. (more)

Preview: Mafia 2 (and Mafia 2 3D)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2559 days, 22 hours, 24 minutes ago
Monday, June 21, 2010 8:35:42 AM GMT
Mafia 2 feels, from the demo we played, like it could just as easily be called Grand Theft Auto: Godfather. If that's what you're looking for from the mob-o-rama sequel, then celebrate by throwing someone off a pier with cement shoes. It's actually pretty hard to note anything unexpected or different in the Mafia 2 demo. Almost everything you'd expect from a game that borrows heavily from the GTA IV template is there, both the good and the bad. (more)

While E3 attendees file out of a darkened room after a demonstration of the new Mortal Kombat, series co-creator Ed Boon is approached by a pair of enthusiastic fans. He gladly gives them a few autographs, and his face lights up in surprise when he learns that they've grown enamored with the fighting franchise in their 18 years of existence -- despite being born well after its inception. Has Mortal Kombat really been around for almost 20 years? (more)

Monday, June 21, 2010 8:30:41 AM GMT
This week at E3, Disney was showing off its latest Pirates of the Caribbean game, with nary a movie in sight. Armada of the Damned is being developed by Propaganda Games, creators of the most recent Turok titles, and it's ambitious: An open-world action-RPG with a morality system, based on the popular license but not on any specific movie.

Sonic Adventure on PSN and XBLA won't venture outside of 4:3 aspect ratio

Monday, June 21, 2010 8:20:49 AM GMT
The Xbox Live Arcade versions of both Crazy Taxi and Sonic Adventure were playable at Sega's booth, and both still look great, even ten-plus years after their release. However, each game has one issue that keeps the XBLA (and PSN) version from absolute perfection. (more)

Take a spin through a scenic Gran Turismo 5 gallery

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2559 days, 22 hours, 41 minutes ago
Monday, June 21, 2010 8:18:44 AM GMT
1000 cars, 20 tracks, head-tracking (via PlayStation Eye), NASCAR, World Rally Championship, Super GT, two player split-screen, 3D, YouTube uploads, custom soundtracks and PSP connectivity. To say that Gran Turismo 5 is packed would be an understatement. This new batch of E3 media certainly looks pretty, but the real question is: will it be worth the wait? We'll all find out in November. (more)

Preview: Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep

Friday, June 18, 2010 8:13:43 AM GMT
At last year's E3, I got a chance to check out Kingdom Hearts' first North American outing on handhelds, 358/2 Days (or, as Google's automatic calculator called it when I just searched to make sure I had the name right, 179 Days). I recall being impressed at how they managed to ape the solid experience the game delivered on PS2 on a portable platform, albeit at the cost of a bit of visual power and general gameplay depth.

Meet the cast of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

Friday, June 18, 2010 8:13:01 AM GMT
Okay! So, forget everyone from those twenty-odd Castlevanias from the past three decades. Just crumple up that whole ludicrous timeline and throw it right in the garbage. Lords of Shadow is a reboot of the franchise, and with it comes a new Belmont, a new quest (his lost love!) and ... Patrick Stewart. (more)

Our hands-on preview of High Voltage Games' The Grinder brought about a fairly surreal statement on our part. A brief explanation: Players pick up a number of throwable secondary weapons, including your basic frag grenades, as well as weirder fare, such as baby dolls which monsters will swarm on when dropped. Of course, once we'd grabbed a number of these pickups, a completely logical question came to mind (more)

Well, that excitement is no longer exclusive to us -- we've embedded the premiere trailer after the break. It's full of masked natives occasionally living their lives and, oh, occasionally being swept off the face of the planet. (more)
