Blizzard: Diablo 3 on Console "Makes Sense"

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2008 days, 5 hours ago
Tuesday, March 27, 2012 8:26:35 AM GMT
Officially Blizzard says it's "exploring" the possibility of Diablo 3 on consoles. Behind the scenes, it's hiring on new talent to tackle the project like this one position for a Game Systems Designer. Whether or not an actual product will hit the market remains to be seen at this point, but COO Paul Sams says that of all the Blizzard games, Diablo 3 makes perfect sense outside the PC arena. (more)

Preview: The Amazing Spider-Man

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2020 days, 6 hours, 4 minutes ago
Thursday, March 15, 2012 7:21:58 AM GMT
The Spider-Man franchise has seen its share of highs and lows, due in no small part to Activision's effort to make sure there's always another title on the horizon. And with a reboot of the film series coming this summer, there's yet another opportunity for the games to reinvent themselves. (more)

As much as I'd like to feel sorry for the decimation of Cybertron, home of my childhood heroes, developer High Moon studios left me craving even more destruction with Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. (more)

Preview: Getting in deep with the Triads in Sleeping Dogs

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2047 days, 5 hours, 3 minutes ago
Friday, February 17, 2012 8:23:18 AM GMT
I'm so glad this game has shaped into what it is now, because when I first heard that Sleeping Dogs was originally titled True Crime: Hong Kong, I thought to myself, "Damn it, hopefully this will be a short demo." Once I saw the game in action, though, and was informed that it was always meant to be a completely original IP (with or without the True Crime handle), I shed all reservations and instantly grew optimistic.

Preview: 5 things to know about Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2067 days, 1 hour, 57 minutes ago
Saturday, January 28, 2012 11:28:57 AM GMT
The original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater holds a special place in my gaming heart, as it does in Conrad's. I was fresh out of high school without a lot of money, and the addictive nature of trying to complete the perfect run eliminated the need for any other game. It was the perfect fix for when I was happy, sad, or just plain bored, and it only got better with the second installment -- especially the Dreamcast version. (more)

After announcing a long list of changes that were made in Diablo 3, Blizzard has announced that a few more additional changes are in order. The team stated on Friday that both the Scroll of Companion and the Scroll of Reforging will be removed because they "weren't good enough" for the upcoming PC game in its current state. (more)

Friday, January 20, 2012 10:11:01 AM GMT
Based on the topic header, it sounded as if Blizzard planned to change the system specs for its upcoming action/RPG for the PC, Diablo 3. But (currently) that's not the case at all, and instead is an announcement that the team is changing some of the core in-game systems based on feedback from the closed beta and from internal testing.

Former Activision heads start U4ia, begin 'hardcore freemium' FPS

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2135 days, 4 hours, 29 minutes ago
Monday, November 21, 2011 8:57:28 AM GMT
The video-game industry is trying to find the balance between casual and hardcore gaming, with freemium, social-networking titles leading the casual sphere. A new development company established by former Activision employees Dusty Welch and Chris Archer, U4ia, plans to bridge the gap and make freemium a staple of hardcore titles, as well. Its first target -- the FPS. (more)

Chinese pirates help Unity expand

Monday, October 03, 2011 6:14:52 AM GMT
I can't imagine ever seeing a general consensus when it comes to software piracy. Consumers, developers, publishers and the media all approach the situation from different angles and have different motivations and investments in the software. Unity Technologies, developers of the Unity game engine and editor, have added some more gray to the piracy canvass. John Goodale believes that China's culture of piracy allowed his company to make waves in the East. (more)

Diablo 3 Closed Beta Hands-On: Part 3

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2184 days, 7 hours, 22 minutes ago
Monday, October 03, 2011 6:04:41 AM GMT
In this segment, I’m going to cover two very different classes: the Barbarian and the Monk. As with the prior two (Magician, Demon Hunter), this duo doesn’t really shine until after they’ve unlocked their third ability slot at level 6. And like the previous two, one is a bit easier to play than the other. In this case, it should be fairly obvious which one is the true hack-n-slash champ: the Barbarian. (more)

Guitar Hero to be resurrected, retooled, and launch reunion tour

Stop mourning wannabe rock stars -- Guitar Hero is coming back. We heard the rumors of its demise were greatly exaggerated, but now word has come straight from Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick that the game is currently being reinvented for a modern, more demanding audience. As he told Forbes, "we're going to take the products out of the market, and we're not going to tell anybody what we're doing for awhile... we're going to use new studios and reinvent Guitar Hero.

Carmack: Call of Duty hating indie devs are 'snooty'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2259 days, 3 hours, 40 minutes ago
Wednesday, July 20, 2011 9:46:38 AM GMT
id Software's John Carmack has called out "snooty" indie developers who hate Call of Duty thanks to its popularity. He says that criticism of the series is "unfounded" and argues that it works off of a proven formula. "That's still a proven formula that people like, and it's a mistake to [discount that]. As long as people are buying it, it means they're enjoying it," he declared. "If they buy the next Call of Duty, it's because they loved the last one and they want more of it.
