Rock Band Weekly: Bullet For My Valentine

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2001 days, 23 hours, 39 minutes ago
Monday, May 28, 2012 8:05:06 AM GMT
A "Bullet For My Valentine" may sound like a really terrible gift for anyone that doesn't collect antique minié balls, but it's actually the name of next week's featured band over in Rock Band DLC world. (more)

Review: Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2022 days, 20 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 08, 2012 7:24:06 AM GMT
Minecraft's success simply cannot be denied, whether you're one of its many loyal fans or highly vocal detractors. The blocky world and lack of objectives may be deceptively simple, but its honest freedom, as well as hidden depths both literal and figurative, has earned a cult following that is easily understood.

Silver Lining: NeverDead's transforming man

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2022 days, 25 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 08, 2012 7:19:01 AM GMT
Games tend to take death rather lightly. Characters die constantly, extra lives are collected and wasted, and respawns are regularly infinite. NeverDead eschews it (almost) entirely, adding an interesting layer to core convention of death in games. As a whole, however, NeverDead is mostly a mess. Combat leans toward the tedious, and the dismemberment mechanic is poorly implemented and clunky. Even the story is paper-thin and mostly unfunny, in a genre not generally lauded for well-crafted narratives. (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)

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes launch month confirmed, suspiciously

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2023 days, 1 hour, 11 minutes ago
Monday, May 07, 2012 6:33:42 AM GMT
The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is officially dropping in September for console and PC, Focus Home Interactive has announced. We can't be sure, but such a brazen release window announcement seems a little odd to us. Obviously a publisher wants its consumers to know when its game launches, but to just come out and say it like that... we think Focus Home is hiding something. Something sinister. Something only a genius detective could figure out. (more)

This Crysis 3 concept art is pretty, of course

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2023 days, 1 hour, 11 minutes ago
Monday, May 07, 2012 6:33:07 AM GMT
Saying that anything related to a Crysis game "looks good" is a bit like saying the Sun is somewhat hot, or that the Joystiq staff is somewhat attractive – true, obviously, but a bit of an understatement. (more)

Report: MLB 2K12 Perfect Game Million Dollar Challenge ends with accusations of cheating

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2024 days, 22 hours, 46 minutes ago
Saturday, May 05, 2012 8:58:38 AM GMT
2K Sports' annual million dollar pitching challenge in its MLB 2K series had a bit of a change-up this year. Rather than awarding vast sums of cash to the first person to throw a perfect game in MLB 2K12, this year the competition introduced a new setup: a period of time where everyone could try to pitch a perfect game, and a complex algorithm judging the results and assigning scores. Taking a lower-rated pitcher against a great squad, for example, gives you more points. (more)

Here at Joystiq, we pride ourselves on bringing you the new hotness, but sometimes we miss things – like this pre-production concept footage from an audio guy's portfolio uploaded many moons ago. If it looks familiar, it's because this eventually became the original Assassin's Creed. (more)

New Black Ops 2 art teases Zombies mode

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2025 days, 23 hours, 45 minutes ago
Friday, May 04, 2012 7:59:35 AM GMT
Black Ops 2 brings back Treyarch's personal twist on Call of Duty, namely Zombies. The official Twitter account issued this image, teasing a shotgun-toting female. It's not the first time a woman had to get her hands dirty, though we think this one took the phrase a bit too literally. (more)

How Scientists Plan to Stop Nasty Side-Channel Attacks

Friday, May 04, 2012 7:18:15 AM GMT
Shafi Goldwasser at MIT and Guy Rothblum at Microsoft Research are proposing a technique that could alleviate the threat of such attacks, which often rely on an attacker being able to listen to the "noise" of computer processes. Side-channel attacks are frequently timing storage transactions and are measuring the power use of a systems to make conclusions of a system's activity and ultimately open a door to critical data.

Dead or Alive 5 has costume-specific breast physics

Wednesday, May 02, 2012 6:28:49 AM GMT
Since the departure of Tomonobu Itagaki back in 2008, Team Ninja has attempted to shake its reputation as nothing but a stylish, sex-crazed gore factory. It attempted to give Ninja Gaiden's Ryu Hayabusa a softer side, for one. Only two months ago, Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi said Dead or Alive 5 will rise beyond "sex and violence," instead pursing "a direction that contains emotional experiences that can move players."

Controlling the battlefield in Black Ops 2 'Strike Force' missionsControlling the battlefield in Black Ops 2 'Strike Force' missions

Choice in a video game is not a rare occurrence, unless that game happens to be Call of Duty. During the campaign in Black Ops 2, players will have the ability to select from a handful of 'Strike Force' missions anchored to hotspots throughout the globe. When one mission is selected, the others become unavailable, replaced later with fresh 'Strike Force' missions. (more)

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

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

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)

Switched On: Big kicks, not all for starters

The end of last week's Switched On left doubt for the future of dedicated devices that tread on the turf of smartphones. After all, funding is key to every major new product initiative and, despite the vast fortunes of many Silicon Valley engineers that have been accumulated via IPOs and acquisitions, few wish to take on the risk of fronting a new consumer device themselves.(In 2007, the handheld FlipStart PC was hatched from FlipStart Labs, funded by Vulcan Ventures, the investment arm of Microsoft co-f...
