Tuesday, March 27, 2012 8:28:23 AM GMT

Blizzard: Diablo 3 on Console "Makes Sense"

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1975 days, 20 hours, 36 minutes 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)

Risen 2 still looks a lot like Pirates of the Caribbean in its cinematic trailer

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1976 days, 20 hours, 16 minutes ago
Monday, March 26, 2012 8:46:23 AM GMT
Risen 2: Dark Waters, the coming RPG from Deep Silver, features the swashbuckling staples of any pirate tale, including the Kraken, a feisty female lead, eye patches, curved swords and alcohol, as the above cinematic trailer demonstrates. Deep Silver announced a modified release date for Risen 2 with the trailer: It's coming to North American PCs on April 27, and Xbox 360 and PS3 on May 22. (more)

The power of inclusion in Epic Mickey 2

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1978 days, 20 hours, 14 minutes ago
Saturday, March 24, 2012 8:48:27 AM GMT
In retrospect, it's obvious that Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two would be a musical. It's the natural path toward making the Disneyest thing possible, and that's where Junction Point creative director Warren Spector's interests lie. Before I played a demo, I and other press were presented with a cutscene setting up the story. (more)

How the power of 700 goes into one Epic Mickey 2

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1978 days, 20 hours, 15 minutes ago
Saturday, March 24, 2012 8:46:56 AM GMT
Warren Spector recently told GamesIndustry.biz that over 700 people worldwide were working on his next game, which of course turned out to be Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. To us, that seemed unfathomably vast -- it's larger than Capcom's estimate for Resident Evil 6 by 100 heads. So, in order to get a handle on it, we asked Spector how that roster breaks down. (more)

Xbox 360's Comcast Xfinity TV app in beta testing, won't count against data caps when it launches

Saturday, March 24, 2012 8:22:40 AM GMT
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.

Microsoft patent application gives us hope for head-mounted successor to Virtual Boy

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1982 days, 21 hours, 7 minutes ago
Tuesday, March 20, 2012 7:55:18 AM GMT
Patent applications are full of hope and broken dreams, as it's far too easy to let a rampant imagination read beyond the layers of patent-attorney penned boilerplate. In the realm of the realistic, this application from Microsoft concerns a head-mounted display with a narrow-beam laser packing two dilation optics (us neither). (more)

Microsoft: Seriously, No Xbox Hardware at E3

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1985 days, 21 hours, 18 minutes ago
Saturday, March 17, 2012 7:44:24 AM GMT
The last few months have brought us tons of juicy rumors about the Xbox 720. We know that it's codenamed Durango, and last week we heard that it would be losing the disc drive in favor of an alternative form of interchangeable solid storage. There's also been a lot of talk of Microsoft announcing the console at E3 in June this year. While Microsoft is not expected to release the console this year, many have speculated that Redmond will at least give us a glimpse of it this summer. Microsoft said back in ... (more)

FIFA Street review: When players collide

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1986 days, 22 hours, 6 minutes ago
Friday, March 16, 2012 6:56:21 AM GMT
There's no way FIFA Street could have merely been an additional mode in FIFA Soccer 12. The latter takes to the conventional styles of soccer, where setting up plays and well-timed crosses are the keys to victory. The former focuses on "the beautiful game," where one player juggles a ball around with blinding grace, tricking an opponent into moving one direction while taking the ball in the other. (more)
