Razer bringing Onza 'professional' controllers to 360

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2332 days, 4 hours, 40 minutes ago
Friday, January 07, 2011 9:15:08 AM GMT
Should you find yourself of the opinion that your Xbox 360 controller isn't precise or extreme enough, then please pay particular attention to the following sentence: Razer has announced that its Onza line of Xbox 360 controllers will be available for pre-order beginning January 17. The standard Onza, featuring backlit "Hyperesponse" face buttons, an improved d-pad and two extra programmable shoulder buttons, was actually announced way back in 2010. (more)

Kinect Hacks: RUSE with gesture controls

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2335 days, 4 hours, 22 minutes ago
Tuesday, January 04, 2011 9:33:08 AM GMT
At first, this video appears to show the Xbox 360 RTS R.U.S.E controlled using Kinect, but it's actually a ... clever deception: Evoluce's Wolfgang Herfurtner applied a Kinect interface to the PC version of R.U.S.E., allowing the in-game cursor to be controlled with motions. (more)

Latest L.A. Noire screens are arresting

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2335 days, 4 hours, 32 minutes ago
Tuesday, January 04, 2011 9:22:32 AM GMT
Happy noire year! Er, sorry, we mean "new year." You'll have to forgive the slip -- we've just had these fresh screenshots of Rockstar's L.A. Noire on our minds. And can you really blame us? They look so nice, occasional creepy face aside, it'd be a crime not to check them out after the break. (more)

ESRB ironically rates Bulletstorm 'Mature,' tries to summarize game

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2335 days, 4 hours, 33 minutes ago
Tuesday, January 04, 2011 9:21:24 AM GMT
If you're not sure whether Bulletstorm exists to mock a 15-year-old's view of masculinity, or to celebrate it, the ESRB's rating summary isn't going to deliver any answers. (more)

Dead Space save file unlocks original plasma cutter in Dead Space 2

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2336 days, 4 hours, 8 minutes ago
Monday, January 03, 2011 9:46:39 AM GMT
Here's a nice bonus for fans of the original Dead Space. If you have any save file -- completed or not -- from the first title, you'll unlock the original plasma cutter right off the bat for use in the upcoming sequel. Hardcore players should be more than familiar with the gun, thanks to an Achievement that forces players to complete an entire playthrough using only that gun. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2336 days, 4 hours, 9 minutes ago
Monday, January 03, 2011 9:45:32 AM GMT
The Gears of War franchise is no stranger to re-releases, having "Platinum" and "Game of the Year" collections across its two titles so far. However, it appears Microsoft is planning one more re-release, tentatively titled Gears of War Ultimate, according to a GameStop listing spotted by IGN. Pegged with a February 15th date, Ultimate has a $29.99 price tag. (more)

Bad Company 2's Operation Hastings map unlocked for PS3 and Xbox 360 players

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2336 days, 4 hours, 9 minutes ago
Monday, January 03, 2011 9:45:31 AM GMT
Although PS3 and Xbox 360 players didn't quite measure up to the challenge, DICE has unlocked the final map of the Battlefield Vietnam expansion, Operation Hastings, for everyone. PC players were able to get up to the requisite 69 million team actions in a matter of days, far outpacing console players (with 34 and 46 million actions, respectively). The sudden change of plans is apparently to "start this new year with a big of a bang as we ended it." (more)

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam review: Enjoyable quagmire

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2341 days, 5 hours, 21 minutes ago
Wednesday, December 29, 2010 8:34:09 AM GMT
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam occupies a very strange place. It's a great addition to the Battlefield franchise, no doubt, but whether it was originally intended as a standalone game à la Battlefield 1943, or as an "expansion" to Battlefield Bad Company 2, is a question that lingers. Of course, it's hard to focus on such questions while you barbecue the enemy with a flamethrower. (more)

Santa's got his heart in the right place, but c'mon, the guy can't do everything. He knows you wanted Fighters Uncaged (it was, in fact, the reason you were on the naughty list), but he just didn't have room in the sleigh this year. Luckily, Amazon is there to help you finish the job that Santa couldn't with a "Buy One, Get One 1/2 Off" offer on over 600 games. (more)

Duke Nukem fan film is coming to get the rest of you alien bastards

Wednesday, December 29, 2010 8:13:36 AM GMT
It's not difficult to turn a game into a tasteful film. Case in point: The Duke: Fate of Humanity, a potent, made-in-a-day homage to our favorite guy with the shot-up ride. It has it all: a stripper, an alien invasion, cigars and a transfer of funds from Duke to said lady of the pole. (more)

New Catherine gameplay screens make it look way better

Monday, December 27, 2010 8:53:59 AM GMT
It took a while, but the hype machine for Atlus' sexy new action-puzzler Catherine had recently (and finally) shifted into "providing actual gameplay details" mode. Screens were shot, copy was written, and...let's just say that a few folks came away less than enthused by what Jim was concerned could turn out as "Q*bert with tits." (more)

Rayman Origins a no-show for holiday 2010

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2347 days, 3 hours, 52 minutes ago
Thursday, December 23, 2010 10:03:00 AM GMT
Rayman Origins, a beautiful 2D adventure created within Ubisoft's UbiArt framework, was scheduled to launch on HD consoles by the end of this year. While the official website still believes that to be the case, it's now clear that the release has been delayed. Planned as an episodic series, Rayman Origins examines the mischievous beginnings of Michel Ancel's famous limber-yet-limbless hero, and his friendship with Globox, a boisterous frog-type ... thing.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 'First Strike' map pack strikes Xbox Live first on Feb. 1

The Major Nelson podcast brings the first details of the initial, inevitable Call of Duty: Black Ops map pack. "First Strike" will be released on Xbox Live on February 1, 2011 -- as a timed exclusive, so give it about a month if you want it on another platform. The pack includes four competitive maps: "Discovery," based on the Reznov mission and taking place in an Antarctic research station; "Kowloon" set in, of course, Kowloon, this time on rooftops; "Berlin Wall," a fight at Checkpoint Charlie; and "St...

Microsoft seeking to quadruple Kinect accuracy?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2350 days, 3 hours, 37 minutes ago
Monday, December 20, 2010 10:17:27 AM GMT
Hacked your Kinect recently? Then you probably know something most regular Xbox 360 gamers don't -- namely, that the Kinect's infrared camera is actually capable of higher resolution than the game console itself supports. Though Microsoft originally told us it ran at 320 x 240, you'll find both color and depth cameras display 640 x 480 images if you hook the peripheral up to a PC (more)

Recording Alan Wake audio was just as scary as listening to it

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2360 days, 4 hours, 49 minutes ago
Friday, December 10, 2010 9:06:06 AM GMT
In a recent interview with Designing Sound, the audio team behind Alan Wake revealed much about their process creating the game's creepy soundscape. One of the more interesting bits in the interview involves the field recording that was done to capture some of the nature sounds of the forest. Pete Comley, a freelance sound designer hired for the project, actually lives in Washington and recorded sounds in many of the forests on which Alan Wake's environments are based. (more)
