Thursday, July 01, 2010 8:16:26 AM GMT
While the world's attention is on soccer, Activision would like to remind us of America's national pastime. Specifically, the subset of our national pastime that is played by weird-looking cartoon characters on the Xbox 360 and PS3: Little League World Series Baseball 2010. (more)

Activision 'in talks' about more Transformers games

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2522 days, 18 hours, 44 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 30, 2010 7:10:36 PM GMT
Transformers: War for Cybertron has surprised a lot of people. Despite a healthy dose of cynicism surrounding the game's chances of being good, the positive reviews and sheer volume of gamers impressed with the multiplayer has made it a real success. Obviously, evil publisher Activision has noticed, and is getting ready to make more. (more)

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 DLC is coming back | Joystiq

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2522 days, 19 hours, 24 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 30, 2010 6:29:59 PM GMT
It's been a roller coaster ride this year for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2fans. First, all DLC for the game vanished from PSN -- it was explained that the DLC was merely a "limited time offer." Then, it vanished from Xbox Live, too. Now, gamers are forced to simply play the game itself, deprived of access to all DLC. Can you imagine the horror? But fear not, for the DLC is returning when it's needed most -- just like a good superhero. Word comes via Hero HQ that the DLC is coming back, and we've manage... (more)

After shutting down Phoenix Online Studios' lovingly crafted King's Quest fan project due to a licensing conflict back in February, it seems Activision has reconsidered its position. According to the indie developer's blog, Activision has rescinded its cease and desist, and has granted the studio a non-commercial license to release the game. (more)

Rumor: Guitar Hero Queen coming next year

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2528 days, 6 hours, 7 minutes ago
Friday, June 25, 2010 7:47:37 AM GMT
We Will Rock You, the hit musical based on the songs of Queen, has been a hit since its inception in 2002. Recently, Swedish site DN.se caught up with Brian May, Queen guitarist and co-creator of We Will Rock You, to talk about the musical. Perhaps of greater relevance to you is May's comment regarding a potential Guitar Hero Queen game. (more)

Rumor: Tony Hawk: Shred will include snowboarding

Thursday, June 10, 2010 8:32:30 AM GMT
Tony Hawk: Shred is an actual thing that's coming, this much Activision itself confirmed. And we have it on good authority from our Joystiq Superspy™ that the latest game to bear the Tony Hawk name will not only let gamers shred pavement, but also some fresh powder: the game will incorporate snowboarding -- a first for the traditionally skateboarding-only series.

Report: New GoldenEye coming in November, to be revealed at E3

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2547 days, 5 hours, 19 minutes ago
Sunday, June 06, 2010 8:35:02 AM GMT
More evidence to support the circulating rumors of a GoldenEye remake surfaced this past week. The most convincing comes from Eurogamer, which reports that a source has confirmed Activision is working on a revamped version of the classic Nintendo 64 shooter for the Wii and DS to be released this November. The game is supposedly being developed by n-Space and Eurocom, the latter of which created the N64 version of The World is Not Enough. The source also mentioned the publisher will showcase the title for... (more)

Co-op in Call of Duty: Black Ops will be its own thing

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2549 days, 6 hours, 15 minutes ago
Friday, June 04, 2010 7:39:17 AM GMT
More and more, we are starting to finally see cooperative modes that aren't literally the exact same levels from single-player but with support from a buddy. This is a damned good thing. Modern Warfare 2's Spec Ops mode was a smart blend of the two routes developers can take, which got me to thinking -- what's awaiting us in Call of Duty: Black Ops? Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia has some answers for us, courtesy of MTV Multiplayer. Here's how he views the various modes: (more)

Impressions: Call of Duty: Black Ops

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2554 days, 6 hours, 30 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:23:49 AM GMT
I know what you're thinking: Ugh, another Call of Duty. I'm not quite with you, but I do get it. Thankfully, what I saw of Treyarch's latest, Call of Duty: Black Ops, looks absolutely fantastic. More importantly, it looks to be different enough to actually stand out among all the other CoD titles. No, really. These impressions come from a session that was hands-off, mind you. But know that we did see quite a bit of game play, and our impressions will beat the hell out of watching a short teaser trailer ... (more)

Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:19:44 AM GMT
Activision must be seeing some kind of meaningful return on their Little League World Series Baseball franchise, because they're continuing to crank out the games. Today, they announced Little League World Series Baseball 2010, due out this July. But whereas the past two games in the franchise released on the Wii, an appropriate home for the kid-friendly game, this year's installment is coming out on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 -- and there's no Wii version in sight.

"The team's work can speak for itself, so we're gonna jump right into the game. We're gonna take you to a weapons manufacturing facility deep behind enemy lines in the Soviet Union. This is WMD." After this brief introduction by Treyarch's Mark Lamia at an event in Los Angeles earlier this month, I was treated to a first look at the annualized, even-year Call of Duty production by Treyarch. Amidst all the legal posturing, accusations, departures, hires, and general unpleasantness (read all about it), Ca... (more)

Interview: Call of Duty: Black Ops producer Dan Bunting

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2555 days, 5 hours, 30 minutes ago
Saturday, May 29, 2010 8:24:09 AM GMT
Treyarch is no stranger to the Call of Duty franchise, having created Call of Duty 3 and World at War, but, up until it began work on this November's Call of Duty: Black Ops, it was stuck in the past -- World War II, that is. After getting our first look at its take on more modern combat, we spoke with Black Ops producer Dan Bunting to find out what to expect from the series' move into the Cold War and the world of deniable operations. Oh, and zombies -- we had to ask about those. (more)

Reviews have begun to inch out for Bizarre's new arcadey racer Blur and, at the risk of spoiling the metareview in the first sentence, they're pretty darn good! Maybe not "change your life" good, but at least "put this in your game box and fun will come out" good. What? That's not specific enough for you? OK, fine, here: (more)
