posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2573 days, 6 hours, 12 minutes ago
Sunday, June 13, 2010 9:42:01 AM GMT
Excited about Crysis 2 but can't wait until the game arrives later this year? You could probably don a Nano Muscle Suit and spend the summer looking like a psychotic person -- or you could go over to the MyCrysis community page and sign up for an account, granting you a chance at early access to the beta. "What beta?" you say? Yep, turns out that Crytek is working on giving fans early access to its upcoming sequel. (more)

E3 10: My first Need for Speed-related traffic ticket

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2573 days, 6 hours, 25 minutes ago
Sunday, June 13, 2010 9:29:08 AM GMT
I've book many appointments to see games at E3 this week. Usually, I'll later get an email confirming the date, time, and location of the game demo. But this one takes the cake -- Electronic Arts sent me a speeding ticket. The cat's out the bag, if you hadn't already heard -- the publisher will be showing off its next Need for Speed in just a few short days, presumably Burnout developer Criterion's take on the series. It also may be called Need for Speed Hot Pursuit: Race, as shown during GameTrailers T... (more)

Sunday, June 13, 2010 9:20:36 AM GMT
I'm not usually one to get excited over trailers, even ones with a heavy focus on gameplay footage. But hot damn, seeing Isaac floating around making nasty things explode like this has me more than a little excited. (more)

Dead Space 2 gameplay trailer aims for our eyes

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2574 days, 7 hours, 18 minutes ago
Saturday, June 12, 2010 8:35:58 AM GMT
Minus the hardcore guitar music, this new trailer for Dead Space 2 reassures us that Visceral Games' horror follow-up won't stray too far from the original. Considering how beloved the first game was, that's not a bad thing at all. (more)

Friday, June 11, 2010 5:20:22 AM GMT
With the 2010 FIFA World Cup (the video game) now a thing of the past, EA has announced the next iteration in its long-standing soccer series: FIFA Soccer 11. The next FIFA will introduce "Personality+," a feature designed to highlight individual abilities and create a unique identity for each player in the game. (more)

Mega64 gets the lowdown on Rock Band 3's new logo

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2576 days, 7 hours, 34 minutes ago
Thursday, June 10, 2010 8:19:55 AM GMT
Oh, Mega64, is there any code you can't crack? First it was the mysterious Kojima teaser last year and now, the comedy troupe ponders on that mysterious new keyboard-like icon in the Rock Band 3 logo. They even find some similarities between Rock Band 3 and F3AR -- er, sorry, FEAR 3. It's some very high-brow deductive reasoning, as indicated in the classy image above. Head past the break to check out the video courtesy of IGN -- "solved 4 good," indeed. (more)

Gibson's Rock Band lawsuit ends in settlement, one way or another

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2576 days, 8 hours, 19 minutes ago
Thursday, June 10, 2010 7:34:46 AM GMT
Back in 2008, Gibson Guitar hoped to cash in on the Rock Band craze with a slate of patent infringement lawsuits of dubious quality, and though the firm lost to Activision a year later, its suits against Harmonix, Electronic Arts, Viacom, and six major retailers stirred something in Nashville's rock gods. Though exact terms weren't disclosed, the parties reached a settlement in a Tennessee federal court this week, and plan to bring the lawsuit to an end by June 14th. Meanwhile, we hear Harmonix v.

Sims 3 console trailer exposes the dark nature of humanity

Tuesday, June 08, 2010 5:52:59 AM GMT
That unsavory proclamation is the first in a long series of deep, dark confessions made in the debut trailer, currently hosted on MTV, for the console versions of The Sims 3. Watch as ordinary people -- by which, of course, we mean paid, professional actors -- air out their dirty, in-game laundry. (more)

Science: EA Sports Active is a real workout

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2583 days, 7 hours, 29 minutes ago
Thursday, June 03, 2010 8:24:54 AM GMT
Think the peripheral-equipped EA Sports Active provides nothing more than a wussy, girly-man workout? You might be right, but at least it's a wussy, girly-man doctor-approved workout. So says a new study conducted by a researcher from the University of Wisconsin, who found that EA's exer-game meets the requirements set up by the American College of Sports Medicine for "a healthy, active lifestyle."

BioWare Montreal seeking multiplayer programmers with Unreal Engine experience

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2584 days, 7 hours, 43 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 02, 2010 8:11:10 AM GMT
A job listing for "multiplayer programmers" has appeared on EA's official website, specifically for BioWare Montreal -- a studio that describes itself in the same listing as "working on Mass Effect, one of the industry's most beloved and acclaimed franchises, as we build our way toward becoming a fully self-sufficient BioWare studio." EA's Montreal-based recruiter, Jeff Goldstein, apparently had a similar listing on his LinkedIn page (no longer available but captured by CinemaBlend), which pegged the mul... (more)

In case you didn't know, Insomniac Games folks are rad

Tuesday, June 01, 2010 8:07:25 AM GMT
When Insomniac Games announced its deal with EA Partners to release a new IP on multiple consoles, it was a win-win situation for gamers. A great development team working on a potentially great new franchise that can be played on more than one platform? This is bad how? Some fans were more excited than other, like one who went out of his way to record a congratulatory message on YouTube, one that was basically a video love letter to the developer. This is the same fan who also baked the developer a huge... (more)

According to the latest issue of OXM (via 1UP), EA is retiring the NBA Live name. Instead, the company will now be branding its franchise NBA Elite, starting with NBA Elite 11. We've checked the game's Twitter, blog and news feed to no avail. We did manage to get into touch with an EA Sports spokesperson, who offered this statement: (more)

Report: Rock Band 3 features keytar, 'Pro' mode

Thursday, May 27, 2010 7:39:45 AM GMT
Given that Harmonix already teased the inclusion of a new instrument in Rock Band 3 -- the keyboard -- we almost feel like we've been taken for a ride. That is, if today's report from Ars Technica's mole on the game is correct and the keyboard is actually a keytar. "What?!" you cry. Much like Frankie, we must say, "Relax!" because, well, we're totally on board with the concept. Just think about the possibilities! (more)

EA and Canadian Hockey League ink 4-year partnership

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2593 days, 8 hours, 50 minutes 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)
