Hands-on: Crackdown 2's first missions

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2646 days, 22 hours, 13 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 26, 2010 6:51:28 AM GMT
In the beginning of Crackdown 2, the objective is simple: The Agency has developed a weapon called the "Sunburst Defense System," designed to quickly rid Pacific City of its mutated inhabitants, or "freaks," by melting them vampire-style with artificial sunlight. In order to locate the freak hot zones (various underground breeding areas for the infected humans), Agents must activate a series of beacons to triangulate the precise positions onto which the Sunburst weapon should be deployed.

Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:38:47 AM GMT

Preview: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2647 days, 21 hours, 34 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:30:30 AM GMT
At Namco Bandai's Pre-E3 event last week, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West took my by surprise. I knew of the upcoming title from the makers of Heavenly Sword, but I had no idea it was so pretty until I set eyes on it in action! Ninja Theory's unconventional and original adventure title is a stunner in both the looks, gameplay and story departments, though. Seriously, the whole title shines so much, and from all angles, that I feel silly for not paying http://bulk.destructoid.cbetter attention. I know bette... (more)

Legendary Pictures, the production company behind blockbuster films like 300 and Clash of the Titans, has picked up the film rights for the Mass Effect franchise.

Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:21:07 AM GMT
This is your lucky day, agent. Today you get to participate in viral marketing, easily the best kind of marketing in Pacific City. This marketing, as you may have guessed, is for Crackdown 2.

After all, you loved the first Crackdown, you've read the hands-on coverage for the sequel, your pre-order money has been set aside and you're just coasting your way to July. The answer is simple: early demo access. (more)

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 trailer is epic

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2647 days, 21 hours, 45 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:19:21 AM GMT
We could go on about all of the badass ninja action going on in the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 trailer above, but we just can't get past how amazing it all looks in HD. It's like this trailer opened our skull and scooped out our brain, only to leave a drooling husk of a human being in its wake. We guess it's kinda impressive we managed to write this post. (more)

Blur's French TV spots are far from feminist

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2647 days, 21 hours, 47 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:17:30 AM GMT
Look, we're not experts in the way of marketing things to the French, but we're pretty sure the advertising for Blur is all kinds of wrong. Seemingly tapping the region's most beautiful women to represent in-game power-ups, arguing their superiority over their peers, each spot concludes with the ladies throwing down in a faux race -- which is more an excuse for them to show off skin than to show off the game. Have you ever had to hit so many buttons while playing a racing game before? Yeah, we didn't thi... (more)

Backbreaker video gets all defensive

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2647 days, 21 hours, 52 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:11:55 AM GMT
Having educated us in the ways of offense, 505 Games has released a new video to acquaint digital linesmen with Backbreaker's defensive game. Much like the offense game, playing D in Backbreaker uses flicks of the right analog stick to perform various actions, whether they be flying tackles, bull rushes or sneaky evasive spins. (more)

Hands-on: Puzzle Quest 2

"So would you call this a return to form?" I asked Infinite Interactive's Steve Fawkner right before I picked up the controller to play Puzzle Quest 2. "Yes, very much so," he replied. Fawkner isn't shy about admitting that Puzzle Quest Galactrix deserved a few of the lumps it got from fans ("They didn't like it when minigames blocked progress on the main game"), and so when his team set out to create a full-fledged sequel to the gem-matching, role-playing hit, they wanted a good mix of updated gameplay ...

Politicians. Actors. Singers, too. What do they have in common with Xbox Japan mascot Sanrokumaru? They have all thrown out the first pitch at baseball games. Sanrokumaru stars in a new series of TV ads in which he and the rest of the "Xbox Mission Department" attempts to secure titles like the new Virtual-On for the Xbox 360. (more)

Fast times and co-op play with Bad Company 2's Onslaught

Ever have those days where, try as you might, you just can't pull yourself together? Where you work as hard as you can to get something done, but what you really need is a friend who has got your back and is willing to pull you through the hard stuff? That's kinda sorta maybe like the recently announced “Onslaught” mode for DICE's Battlefield: Bad Company 2. A co-op multiplayer mode, it is definitely what the doctor ordered for team-based empowerment. Gone are those nasty human-controlled enemies and pe... (more)

Crackdown 2 gets ultra-violent prequel cartoon

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2648 days, 21 hours, 57 minutes ago
Monday, May 24, 2010 7:06:54 AM GMT
You know what violent video gaming franchise we always thought would make an excellent Saturday morning cartoon? Crackdown. We're thinking of a modern day GI Joe series, with rugged super soldiers, death-defying acrobatic feats, the occasional car chase and a helpful PSA at the end of each episode. However, Machinima.com recently posted the first episode in a real cartoon series based on Crackdown 2, and ... well, let's just say they went in a much different direction with it. A much bloodier direction. (more)

EA and Canadian Hockey League ink 4-year partnership

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2648 days, 22 hours ago
Monday, May 24, 2010 7:04:17 AM GMT
A recent EA Sports press release has announced that the developer's upcoming hockey title, NHL 11, will be the first game to feature the teams and players of all three divisions in the Canadian Hockey League. The CHL is a "development" league, featuring players between the ages of 16 and 20, many of which go on to play for major teams in the NHL. We might go so far as to call it NHL Jr., if we didn't think every one of its players could beat us within an inch of our lives with little to no effort. (more)

Machinima.com creates canonical expansion to Dragon Age: Origins

Jonesing for more stories set in the grim Dragon Age universe, but don't have the patience to wait for the game's next expansion? Machinima.com recently produced a canonical miniseries set in the days following Origins' ending, and tells the story of Kristoff, another Gray Warden which players encounter in the Awakenings DLC. Considering the miniseries is titled "Warden's Fall," we seriously doubt things are going to turn out all roses and sunshine for him. (more)

Trio of Blur tutorials explain the value of fans

We understand the value of a good fan just as much as the next guy, whether said fan is reading our humble video game news site, or keeping us cool in the humid summer months. In Bizarre Creations' arcadey racer Blur, they're even more valuable, serving as the player's main form of character progression. In addition, fans will offer a few bonuses which will pop up in the middle of each race, including Fan Runs, Fan Demands and Fan Targets. (more)

Rumor: J Allard leaving Microsoft due to Courier cancellation

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2648 days, 22 hours, 6 minutes ago
Monday, May 24, 2010 6:58:50 AM GMT
ZDNet reports that "a pretty reliable tipster" has informed them that J Allard, Chief Experience Officer of Microsoft and overseer of the development and launch of the Xbox 360, is "on sabbatical and is unlikely to return to Microsoft." According to the tipster, Allard was upset by the sudden, surreptitious cancellation of the Microsoft Courier, which Allard has frequently talked up since it was first revealed last September. (more)

Privates may have trouble passing Xbox Live peer review process

Though we're deeply fascinated with the concept for Zombie Cow's next quirky project, the genital-exploring twin-stick shooter Privates, we hadn't considered the hurdles this type of mature innovation might face. Seattle PI recently posited the question of whether the game would even be allowed to launch on Xbox Live Indie Games, to which a Microsoft representative replied, "we can confirm that if it is consistent with the description we have seen on the Internet, this game would not pass peer review and...
