posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2471 days, 20 hours, 25 minutes ago
Monday, September 20, 2010 7:07:02 AM GMT
The "Games Software Sales Forecast" included in Capcom's latest financial report includes launch windows for a handful of the company's upcoming titles -- the most intriguing of which is Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. According to the report, the game is set to launch sometime during the fourth quarter of the current fiscal year, meaning Capcom's planning to release it some time between January 1 and March 31, 2011.

Sony launches anti-Kinect attack website, yaybuttons.com

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2478 days, 20 hours ago
Monday, September 13, 2010 7:32:26 AM GMT
Sony's typically the equal-opportunity offender, poking fun at everything from Wii to iPhone, but the company's latest marketing campaign is unmistakably aimed at Microsoft's motion-sensing peripheral. Head on over to www.yaybuttons.com to interact with a two-dimensional PlayStation Move, which will pop out a series of quotes from Kevin Butler -- Sony's fictional VP of Realistic Movements -- explaining Sony's tactile advantages over Microsoft's Kinect. While members of the Sony Defense Force will surely ... (more)

Video: Halo: Reach 'Tip of the Spear' Bungie dev walkthrough

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2482 days, 20 hours, 29 minutes ago
Thursday, September 09, 2010 7:02:58 AM GMT
Here's the thing: we refuse to watch this video. Sorry, guys, but Halo: Reach is a little less than a week away and we want to go into it fresh. Still, not everyone has the same desire to remain pure, so for those of you chomping at the bit for more Reach stuff, head on past the break for a video walkthrough of "Tip of the Spear." If you need us, we'll have our fingers firmly planted in our ears, shouting "la-la-la-la-la-la-we-can't-hear-you!" (more)

Dragon Age: Witch Hunt DLC review: Build a bridge out of her

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2482 days, 20 hours, 34 minutes ago
Thursday, September 09, 2010 6:58:00 AM GMT
Contrary to the marketing line, you'll likely find less than you bargained for in Dragon Age: Witch Hunt, a disappointing and flimsy finale to the Dragon Age: Origins storyline. It's not a terrible chunk of content -- and it would have to do far worse before it could tarnish BioWare's other efforts in keeping the Dragon Age universe alive for almost a year now -- but the crucial failure to deliver a satisfying conclusion is hard to forget. We'll talk forgiveness later. (more)

We hope you've mentally prepared yourself for this: Square Enix's Mindjack has been delayed until 2011. Siliconera received confirmation from the publisher that the Feelplus (Lost Odyssey, N3 II: Ninety-Nine Nights) developed title would not be making its scheduled October launch. (more)

Watch this James Bond 007: Blood Stone trailer by any means necessary

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2496 days, 19 hours, 45 minutes ago
Thursday, August 26, 2010 7:47:08 AM GMT
Your task isn't nearly as daunting as the one facing Bizarre's Bond in Blood Stone. The iconic spy is sent to Istanbul to intercept the sale of "mission-critical biotechnology," and is granted inevitably catastrophic permission to do so "by any means necessary." The only thing in Istanbul we don't feel sorry for is the drill on loan from Total Recall. (more)

EA won't bow to Medal of Honor controversy

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2497 days, 20 hours, 58 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 6:34:05 AM GMT
Allow gamers to take up the mantle of the Taliban in your game and you're bound to receive some ire. EA is learning all about that with Medal of Honor, as the mainstream media and the British government have vocalized concerns. British Defence Secretary Liam Fox has actually called for a countrywide ban of the game outright, stating that it's "shocking that someone would think it acceptable to recreate the acts of the Taliban against British soldiers," even though you don't actually kill any British troo...

Wednesday, August 25, 2010 6:28:54 AM GMT
Are you curious about the events that transpired between Gears of War 2 and the upcoming Gears of War 3? Apparently, there were enough to fill up an entire novel -- the recently announced Gears of War: Anvil Gate. The book, which focuses on a Locust attack on the titular settlement of Anvil Gate following the previous game in the series, was penned by prolific Gears scribe Karen Traviss. (more)

Introversion credits Steam for company's salvation

Wednesday, August 25, 2010 6:27:08 AM GMT
In a candid post on Introversion Software's DEFCON forums, company co-founder Mark Morris admits that the Darwinia+ developer was close to closing up shop following disappointing sales of the game's XBLA port. "Internally we knew within about an hour of Darwinia+'s launch that it hadn't done well enough," Morris wrote. "It took us about two weeks to really accept that and the awful realisation that we didn't have enough to continue with the office or the staff. We had a bunch of creditors knocking at the... (more)

Canadian 'Xbox News' dashboard app is devoid of Xbox news

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2504 days, 18 hours, 26 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 18, 2010 9:06:55 AM GMT
Canadian Xbox users now have a new service on the Dashboard, "Xbox News." Surprisingly, instead of gaming news, the video program offers up "entertainment, human interest, tech, gadget, auto and unique" news stories from Microsoft's MSN. The first episode certainly doesn't offer up hard-hitting news, instead dishing out stories about human dominoes and a paintball facility invaded by bears. (more)

Overheard@GDC: Mirror's Edge's odd 'go here' color

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2504 days, 18 hours, 27 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 18, 2010 9:05:14 AM GMT
Did you ever stop to think that red was an odd choice for the "go to" color in Mirror's Edge? Well, it seemed that way initially for the first-person parkour game's level designer, Elisabetta Silli. At the "The Tao of Level Design" panel this morning, she said that "Red is an odd choice because it means danger or stop." She mentioned that when she first played the game she got to a red door and stopped. Of course, now she can't imagine it being any other way: "Red is perfect for Faith, I wouldn't change ... (more)

Wednesday, August 18, 2010 9:03:34 AM GMT
This freshly released gameplay trailer for Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit from Burnout vets Criterion Games has us in a hot pursuit of a controller with which we can play more of this blistering-fast racer. The footage features cops versus racers in both day and night settings, the latter we're pretty sure was put in the game just to show off the police car lights bathing passing cars and scenery in their red and blue beams.

FIFA 11 features 11 vs. 11 online play thanks to 'Be a Goalkeeper'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2504 days, 18 hours, 31 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 18, 2010 9:01:51 AM GMT
EA Sports has added a new feature to the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of FIFA 11 called "Be a Goalkeeper." Guess what it's about! No, it's not about learning how to cultivate a hive, that's "Goal: a Beekeeper." This is about controlling the goalie in soccer games. Be a Goalkeeper allows you to control the goalie using three levels of AI assistance (ranging from "none" to "some," basically). (more)

Preview: Rock Band 3 keyboard, Pro Keys and Keys trainer

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2505 days, 19 hours ago
Tuesday, August 17, 2010 8:32:41 AM GMT
At a Harmonix event a few weeks ago, I finally got some solid fingers-on time with Rock Band 3's keyboard, and as a guy who took nearly 10 years of Friday afternoon piano lessons as a kid, I can say that it's a nice set of keys. The quality of the plastic ivories is not quite as good as your Grandma's classic Steinway, but better than a cheap Casio, and Harmonix has put just as much thought and design into the keytar* as it did into the previous Rock Band instruments.

Toy Story 3 atop UK charts again, Madden barely debuts in top ten

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2505 days, 19 hours, 7 minutes ago
Tuesday, August 17, 2010 8:25:41 AM GMT
Toy Story 3 sales may be down 17 percent in the UK, but it still had enough buzz to remain atop the All Formats chart for another week. Red Dead Redemption rode hard and moved up three spots to second, while Dance on Broadway commanded the stage at third. Lego Harry Potter used "wingardium leviosa" to float up four spots and Art Academy used dark arts (and some heavy promotion, according to Chart-Track) to move up 23 spots to fifth. (more)

Friday, August 13, 2010 8:07:45 AM GMT
Even at this early point in the game's production, it's probably already clichéd to refer to Relic Entertainment's Warhammer 40,0000: Space Marine as "Gears of Warhammer," but man is it an apt description. Despite its innovative RTS roots (working on the acclaimed Homeworld and Dawn of War series), Relic is diving headfirst into the third-person shooter genre, and all of the conventions are here: Gruff-voiced space marines (literally), big shoulder armor, big guns, huge explosions and production values, ...
