Skyrim's Dawnguard DLC review: Disappointment before sunrise

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1908 days, 3 hours, 35 minutes ago
Saturday, June 30, 2012 7:37:16 AM GMT
In Skyrim's "Dawnguard" DLC, I became a vampire. I feasted on the blood of the living. I propelled myself forward at super vampire speed with my leathery grey vampire lord wings. I sapped the energy of my enemies with one boney claw while raising the dead to fight for me with the other, growing my powers ever stronger. I even turned into a swarm of bats and flitted across a room. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1925 days, 2 hours, 54 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 13, 2012 8:17:57 AM GMT
Responding to the overwhelming demand for a "best of" Just Dance game in North America, Ubisoft has announced Just Dance Greatest Hits. Available on the Kinect and Wii, players will get the top tracks from Just Dance and Just Dance 2, with three bonus tracks from Just Dance 3. If this interests you on any level, you can pick up Just Dance Greatest Hits on June 26, 2012 for $39.99. Meanwhile, I'm pondering how many times I can type Just Dance in a row without my fingers forming an independent will of thei... (more)

Fame is always just over the Forza Horizon

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1927 days, 4 hours, 48 minutes ago
Monday, June 11, 2012 6:23:58 AM GMT
Ralph Fulton of Playground Games was very insistent that Forza Horizon is not, in fact, an arcade racing game. It may take place in an open-world version of Colorado, may be free from traditional Forza career modes and may feature a youth-focused licensed soundtrack (read: dubstep), but the actual driving is built on Forza's physics engine.

First Kinect in space is like the first dog in space but it has more use

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1940 days, 2 hours, 41 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 29, 2012 8:31:12 AM GMT
Engineers in Surrey are using Kinect technology in a pair of satellites, hoping to make them dock together, in orbit, using the peripheral's motion-sensing capabilities. Surrey Satellite Technology Limited's STRaND 2 satellites will use components of Kinect tech to scan their immediate surroundings and gather spatial awareness from all directions: They are planned to launch, separate and perform safety checks, and then dock with each other again. In space. (more)

I suggest a new strategy, R2: Let them have a Kinect Star Wars demo

Tuesday, May 08, 2012 7:17:36 AM GMT
We can understand why you may be a bit hesitant to take our verdict on Kinect Star Wars as gospel. It's got Vader fights, rampaging rancors and is the closest physical manifestation of that one kid's dream journal we may ever get. (more)

Celebration Pack Xbox 360 drapes itself in Union Jack, sings Rule Britannia

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1967 days, 5 hours, 2 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 02, 2012 6:10:55 AM GMT
If the Queen's Jubilee and 2012 Olympics pride have overcome your sense of subtlety, Microsoft has a special game console for you. The Celebration Pack Xbox 360 is a plain-jane 4GB Kinect bundle underneath, but it slathers the console, the wireless gamepad and the Kinect sensor in a tattered Union Jack to remind everyone you're not from Canada. Gamers also get copies of Kinect Adventures and Kinect Sports to help them train for the 500-meter relay. Showing your patriotism with an Xbox will cost you £250 ... (more)

Skyrim Kinect patch out tomorrow; here's a list of voice commands

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1968 days, 2 hours, 43 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 01, 2012 8:29:44 AM GMT
Tomorrow Bethesda hatches its scheme to coax your inner Dragonborn into speaking – well, Dragonborn with a second-language credit in English, anyway. The free Kinect update adds over 200 different voice recognition commands to English-speaking regions; there are a bunch of new things to memorize, so Bethesda made a handy glossary for you to load up on your iPad or print out. The .pdf files can be accessed by clicking here. (more)

We haven't seen the end of Joy Ride, at least not according to the Australian Classification Board. The organization has outed "Joy Ride Turbo" from Microsoft Studios. Exactly what Turbo has to do with Kinect Joy Ride is still up in the air (doing tricks, presumably). (more)

Review: Kinect Star Wars

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1993 days, 4 hours, 3 minutes ago
Friday, April 06, 2012 7:09:46 AM GMT
Following a few ramshackle E3 presentations, expectations for Kinect Star Wars were tempered at best. After footage of the game's Galactic Dance Off mode, featuring a dancing Han Solo at the carbonite pit, hit YouTube, these expectations turned from "low" to "the deathblow for the entire Star Wars franchise."

We're still waiting for the Comcast Xfinity TV app to appear on our Xbox 360 dashboards, but word is its beta tests have expanded to cover more Microsoft and Comcast employees, and it could launch as soon as the next week or so. In case you're wonder exactly what its capabilities will be when it will arrives, a post over at AVSForum points out a support page that's already live and details both the requirements for service and content available.

No 'new Xbox' talk at E3, Microsoft says

Having held the top NPD spot for the past 14 months straight -- and with the introduction of Kinect -- the old Xbox 360 still has some life in it yet. "For us, 2012 is all about Xbox 360," Xbox spokesperson and Group Manager of PR David Dennis told Bloomberg. "There will be no talk of new Xbox hardware at E3 or anytime soon." (more)

Microsoft Research Shows Transparent 3D OLED With Kinect

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2018 days, 2 hours, 41 minutes ago
Monday, March 12, 2012 8:31:12 AM GMT
The foundation of Microsoft's interactive display is a transparent 3D OLED supplied by Samsung. Other than traditional Kinect interactions, however, the display creates a 3D scenario behind the screen. The user reaches to the back of the screen to interact with the shown objects. This may not be the most convenient 3D technology and reminiscent of an environment similar to a biology research lab, but it is the most impressive demonstration of a transparent OLED we have seen to date.

Sony may be currently working on a Kinect-like 3D device, as evidence has surfaced thanks to a recently published patent application. The patent specifically states it's for a "user driven three-dimensional gaming environment," but like Microsoft, Sony could market the device outside the PlayStation environment, possibly with the same device, or one altered to work in a PC environment.
