Final Fantasy XIII-2 review: Fixing the past

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2121 days, 4 hours, 57 minutes ago
Sunday, January 29, 2012 9:02:37 AM GMT
There was once a time when "Final Fantasy" meant greatness, when seeing Square's brand on a game box meant you were about to play something special. That time has long since passed. In today's gaming landscape, Final Fantasy is more punchline than powerhouse, more quantity than quality. After the mediocre Final Fantasy XIII and the sheer disaster that was Final Fantasy XIV, many fans have lost faith in the RPG titan. (more)

Microsoft files complaint over fake Halo 4 beta domain

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2121 days, 5 hours ago
Sunday, January 29, 2012 8:59:44 AM GMT
Believe it or not, there are evil people on the Internet who use misinformation and deception to steal from the innocent and well-meaning. We know, we couldn't believe it either, but it's the truth, as recently demonstrated by an outbreak of fake Halo 4 beta test invites. (more)

The Darkness 2 executions trailer is the grossest

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2122 days, 2 hours, 36 minutes ago
Saturday, January 28, 2012 11:23:57 AM GMT
Okay, well, technically that other trailer for The Darkness 2 was the grossest, but this new one is a really, really close second. If there's one thing we know for sure at this point, it's that these demons are seriously offended by human heads being attached to human spines and bodies. (more)

Microsoft reportedly working on Kinect-enabled laptops

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2122 days, 2 hours, 44 minutes ago
Saturday, January 28, 2012 11:15:49 AM GMT
It remains to be seen when or if they'll turn into actual products, but The Daily reports that Microsoft is at least working on getting its Kinect technology shoved into laptops. While details are light, the iPad-based publication says that it's seen a pair of prototypes that "appear to be Asus netbooks running Windows 8," but which have had their webcams replaced with an array of sensors that run along the top of the screen (a set of LEDs are said to be at the bottom).

Kinect-powered theme park opens in South Korea

Thursday, January 26, 2012 10:51:35 AM GMT
While South Korea's cousins to the north are busying themselves with their new glorious leader, the folks in the south's Ilsan districts of Gyeonggi-do are being entranced by American technology. An entire theme park has been created using Microsoft's Kinect tech combined with RFID wristbands that allow attendees to create avatar representations of themselves and move through the park while interacting with its various "attractions."

Deja Review: Quarrel (XBLA)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2124 days, 3 hours, 11 minutes ago
Thursday, January 26, 2012 10:48:40 AM GMT
Quarrel was originally planned for XBLA, and then all the publishing deals fell through. Then Ignition took it on and began working with developer Denki on an iOS release -- which ended up coming out first. That makes this XBLA version, which was the original version, a re-release. Weird! (more)

Gears of War 3 toys bring the carnage down to a child's level

Thursday, January 26, 2012 10:47:28 AM GMT
Gears of War 3 the video game may be targeted at mature adults, but Gears of War 3 the toy? Ages 8 and up. Sure, the kids pretending to shove chainsaw bayonets into Locust chest cavities may get the hands-on enjoyment of alien mutilation, but at least they're not watching it on a screen. (more)

Report: Apple mulling second Israeli facility after Anobit purchase

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2124 days, 3 hours, 24 minutes ago
Thursday, January 26, 2012 10:36:01 AM GMT
It looks like Apple's acquisition of Anobit was only one part of its Israel-based plans -- business daily Calcalist is claiming that the company will open a research center there by the end of February. It's unrelated to the purchase of the flash-chip maker, since Ed Frank was apparently despatched to scope out suitable bases for a new facility in early 2011. It's reportedly going to be based in the Matam Technology District, south of Haifa, adjacent to similar facilities operated by Microsoft, Intel and... (more)

We can hardly believe it ourselves: There are no trips to the moon in this Asura's Wrath launch trailer, nor will you find any dudes who can grow to many times their own size. What you will find is a perturbed Asura -- a nice change of pace from his usual ever-enraged self. (more)

Hudson name will live on after Konami takeover

We're still not sure if Konami will take the Hudson bee out back and put two tiny bullets into its brain, Old Yeller style, but Konami at least plans to keep the Hudson name around. According to a notice spotted on the company's site by Andriasang, Hudson branded products and services will continue to be developed post-acquisition. (more)

Halo 4 beta invites are all fake (so far)

Abe Vigoda's not dead, that bridge in Brooklyn isn't really for sale, and there isn't actually an Easter bunny or a tooth fairy. Oh, and that invite to the Halo 4 beta you just got? It's not real either, says 343 Industries' content editor David Ellis. That doesn't mean there won't be a beta, but there isn't one yet. (more)

Minecraft on XBLA working toward constant updates

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2128 days, 3 hours, 47 minutes ago
Sunday, January 22, 2012 10:13:00 AM GMT
Xbox Live Arcade is an excellent platform that's delivered some of our favorite games over the years, but the approval process for XBLA titles (and their subsequent updates) isn't quite as expedient as other platforms. For ever-changing games like Minecraft, where updates are as vital as they are frequent, this can create potentially destructive brand fragmentation where two distinctly difference experiences exist on two different platforms.
