Pair of Lost Planet 2 multiplayer maps to be GameStop pre-order bonus

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2678 days, 15 hours, 39 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 21, 2010 8:28:21 PM GMT
During its Captivate 2010 media event last week, Capcom revealed two additional multiplayer maps for Lost Planet 2. On top of the 10 maps included on the game disc, this pair of DLC maps will be used as a pre-order incentive (apparently exclusive to GameStop) and will also be made available for all owners of the game to purchase at an unspecified point in time after the game's release.

Rumor: Xbox Live TV channel pitched to Microsoft by ex-News Corp head

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2678 days, 15 hours, 42 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 21, 2010 8:25:05 PM GMT
Our laziness, it knows no bounds: We just can't stand changing out game discs from our systems (hooray digital distribution!), not to mention the agonizing chore of pushing the source button on our TV remote to flip back to broadcast programming. And that's why we're especially happy to hear a rumor from Bloomberg today that ex-News Corp president Peter Chernin is engaged in talks with Microsoft to possibly launch an Xbox Live television channel.

XBLA in Brief: Puzzle Chronicles, After Burner Climax

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2678 days, 15 hours, 43 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 21, 2010 8:24:07 PM GMT
We've got two wildly disparate games on Xbox Live Arcade this week. For the puzzle game / RPG hybrid fans, there's Puzzle Chronicles, essentially a different take on Puzzle Quest (which makes sense, as both were developed by Infinite Interactive). If you're more of an action bent, then After Burner Climax will be right up your alley. So, what's it going to be, saving the kingdom one rotating gem at a time or blasting bogeys from the sky? Watch the latest XBLA in Brief and see if either 800 ($10) title de... (more)

Expanded Xbox Live Friends List Being Considered

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2678 days, 15 hours, 48 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 21, 2010 8:19:02 PM GMT
Support for Xbox Live on the original Xbox has been gone for just about a week now, and with the accompanying technical limitations that the continued support created also gone, Microsoft is now evaluating potential new features for Xbox Live. And among those features is an expanded friends list beyond the current cap of 100 friends. "We're at that point now," Microsoft product director Aaron Greenberg told Xbox World 360 magazine (via CVG), "where that community has largely transitioned off and onto the... (more)

Wednesday, April 21, 2010 8:18:13 PM GMT
Bungie expects quite the turnout for the Halo: Reach public beta when it kicks off next month. Speaking with the Seattle Times, community director Brian Jarrard and multiplayer design lead Chris Carney discussed the goals of the beta, what's new for this Halo, and how they think more than 3 million players could show up for an early taste of Reach.

Tony Hawk's Tony Hawk: Shred Outed By Tony Hawk

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2679 days, 16 hours, 17 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 20, 2010 7:49:44 PM GMT
Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk may have just officially sent the Activision PR team into a 720-degree tizzy, tweeting about Tony Hawk: Shred, quite possibly the more shred-tastic follow-up to the skateboard-as-controller experiment Tony Hawk: Ride. Mr. Hawk cryptically named something that we're just wildly assuming is his next project by way of the Twitter, saying "Tony Hawk: Shred. There, I said it. Actually, I named it. Somewhere a PR team is reeling." Doubtful, as we've been expecting more Tony Hawk:... (more)

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 coming spring 2011 to PS3, Xbox 360

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2679 days, 16 hours, 28 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 20, 2010 7:38:32 PM GMT
As Arnold Schwarzenegger would say: "It's not a rumah!" Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds is very real, and was unveiled by Capcom last week at its Captivate 2010 event. As you can see in the trailer above, the series is going fully polygonal for round three, with visuals that its publisher says deliver "a 'moving comic' style, blurring the boundaries between 2D and 3D graphics." Save for the fairly mundane cityscape, we'd have to agree that the characters in the video look like an evolution of wh... (more)

We've had to walk on eggshells to avoid spoiling the twists and turns of Left 4 Dead 2's imminent content expansion, "The Passing," due out this Thursday on PC and 360. This post is ... well, it's no different at all. Posted after the jump is the list of Achievements included in the DLC, a handful of which may ruin certain plot points you might want to avoid until you get your hands on the new chapter.

That's right, everyone's favorite retro football experience Tecmo Bowl Throwback, finally has a solid release date. According to Microsoft's most recent Xbox Live schedule, Tecmo's revamped classic will tackle Xbox Live Arcade on April 28 for 800 ($10).

To celebrate 1 million Xbox 360 consoles sold in Australia and New Zealand, Microsoft and the David Peachey Foundation are having a charity auction called Konsoles for Kids, where special modded Xbox 360s are put on eBay and the proceeds from the auctions will go towards the charity. While there some pretty interesting airbrush paintjobs of Russell Crowe and Kelly Rowland, complete with signatures, the real standout so far is the mod job comes from Richard Taylor from WETA Workshop, who were involved in...

Microsoft accused of using Chinese child labor

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2680 days, 18 hours, 1 minute ago
Monday, April 19, 2010 6:05:50 PM GMT
Microsoft has been caught in a nasty controversy after revelations that one of its suppliers in China may be using child labor. The kids are allegedly making mice, keyboards and Xbox 360 controllers for $0.65 an hour. Although Microsoft itself has not officially sanctioned this sweatshop and its 16-hour workdays, the company is still under fire from National Labor Committee. The real villain of the piece is KYE, a company that makes small children briefly sleep at their work stations in dismal conditions... (more)

Sonic Adventure, Crazy Taxi outed for Xbox Live Arcade

Monday, April 19, 2010 6:04:01 PM GMT
We've been hearing rumors about digital Dreamcast games since forever, but some brand new evidence appears to categorically suggest that both Crazy Taxi and Sonic Adventure are en route to Xbox Live Arcade. This is amidst further "confirmations" of Doom II, Metal Slux XX and Quake Arena. A member of the Digiex Forums posted a batch of screenshorts purported to be nabbed from a dev kit 360. Just for good measure, he revealed Sonic 4's Super Sonic as well. The screens themselves all look rather genuine, an... (more)

Ubisoft: Splinter Cell could come to the PS3

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2680 days, 18 hours, 7 minutes ago
Monday, April 19, 2010 6:00:16 PM GMT
While rumors of Splinter Cell: Conviction coming to the PS3 are hardly new to the web, Ubisoft must be commended (or hated) for sticking to their one console guns this time around. Could that single console loyalty be waning now? If what Ubisoft creative director Maxime Béland says is true, the answer is an obvious yes. "We'll have to see what decisions are made by Ubisoft's management in the future," Béland said after being asked by VG247 if the series might see other console releases in the future. "T... (more)

Want team-accurate camera angles in MLB 2K10? Try this

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2680 days, 18 hours, 11 minutes ago
Monday, April 19, 2010 5:55:52 PM GMT
I've been playing 2K Sports' Major League Baseball 2K10 for review, and I've noticed that one of the (few) ways in which it is better than Sony's MLB 10 The Show is its suite of highly customizable in-game camera angles. Kotaku's Owen Good noticed it, too, and in an effort to bring a higher degree of verisimilitude to MLB 2K10, he went in and tinkered with the camera angles in each of the ballparks of baseball's 30 teams to make the videogame resemble each team's TV broadcast as closely as possible.

Zombie Studios has announced that its download only first-person shooter Blacklight: Tango Down will feature a cooperative mode called "Special Ops" when it's release later this year. In this mode, up to four players take on the role of a Blacklight soldier as they fight their way through the war-torn streets of Balik. The mode will allow players to upgrade characters, as well as receive a "scenario" score (based on difficulty and performance) and a leaderboard, which Zombie hopes will encourage players... (more)

You might not remember Frontier Development's The Outsider, and that's fine. It's because it was announced back in 2005, and the developer hasn't spoken more than a few words about it since. Instead, it released a WiiWare game, LostWinds, and is hard at work on its sequel. (more)

Splinter Cell takes top UK sales spot with 'Conviction'

Monday, April 19, 2010 5:45:58 PM GMT
Just Dance will just have to wait for its turn back at the top of the UK all-formats sales chart, as Splinter Cell: Conviction has debonairly cut in this week. Although it may appear that the two Ubisoft published titles are in a sashay for supremacy, history has taught us that Just Dance will keep gyrating high above the charts long after Sam Fisher's latest adventure holds the bargain bin hostage.
