posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2114 days, 2 hours, 6 minutes ago
Friday, September 09, 2011 8:13:02 AM GMT
You may know EA as simply a company that creates and publishes games, but we're pretty sure the company is full of wizards. How else can you explain conjuring up between $10 and $15 million dollars? That's what the Online Pass has helped the company do, CFO Eric Brown revealed (via Gamasutra). (more)

FIFA 12 cover athletes revealed, screaming tradition continues

Thursday, August 11, 2011 10:17:28 AM GMT
A screaming man and two dudes who look -- well, they look just like we'd imagine two guys standing next to a screaming man would look: uncomfortable. Then again, they're probably not surprised, as the loudmouth on the cover of FIFA Soccer 12 is just the latest in a string of scream-centric pieces of EA Sports cover art. (more)

Microsoft's no slouch when it comes to market expansion, with personal computing, mobile and even gaming under its Redmond wing -- but fashion? Well, it's time for pigs to fly because two of MS' very own took home Best Concept and Best in Show for their Printing Dress creation at the 15th Annual International Symposium on Wearable Computers.

Meet Durga, Anarchy Reigns' revolver-legged tiger man

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2145 days, 1 hour, 29 minutes ago
Tuesday, August 09, 2011 8:49:58 AM GMT
In an effort to avoid being confused with Durga the Hutt, or Durga, The Invincible One Who Can Redeem In Situations Of Utmost Distress, Anarchy Reigns' latest character distinguishes himself through his stylish tiger-themed wardrobe, his platinum blonde kitty-cat haircut, and also by having a claw-footed revolver-cannon for a leg. Overall, the effect is subtle, and we think it compliments the title's understated visual style. (more)

Borderlands 2, starring Salvador the dwarf and a dump of new details

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2146 days, 13 hours, 35 minutes ago
Sunday, August 07, 2011 8:44:14 PM GMT
Borderlands 2 is bumpin' up the brutality with new details, courtesy of the latest issue of GameInformer. Co-op will remain four-player, but the enemy and NPC AI has been revved to support a more interactive environment, with friendlies offering dialogue and bandits carrying weapons unique to their class. Eridium, a new element, will serve as currency and a means of upgrading weapons and vehicles, we assume by duct-taping it to whichever item you wish to improve. (more)

Minecraft to begin (and possibly never end) with a beta on XBLA

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2146 days, 13 hours, 35 minutes ago
Sunday, August 07, 2011 8:43:41 PM GMT
Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson likes to take things slow -- crawl before you walk, beta for two years and gain mainstream popularity and 3 million users before you release the actual game, that sort of slow. It seems Minecraft's release on XBLA won't be any different, as it will begin with a beta, much like its PC papi. Notch said he wants to discern which aspects of the game are fun on console before its release, but he thinks the Kinect features will be an interesting part of Minecraft's port... (more)

Look honey, we know you're anxious to start waving your arms around, but your Kinect might need a little more time to get over its fear of intimacy. We know you were hoping the Nyko Zoom, the close-encounters enabling Kinect lens cover, would bridge the gap between you two. We know you've been looking looking forward to that August 13 release date with bated breath, but it looks like you're going to have to wait a little longer. (more)

GamePro VP talks about the shift to quarterly mags

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2148 days, 3 hours, 39 minutes ago
Saturday, August 06, 2011 6:39:33 AM GMT
Last week, GamePro shocked the industry when the magazine mainstay announced it was changing over to a quarterly format. Julian Rignall, vice president of GamePro media, recently explained the decision to Gamasutra. In a market with dwindling circulation, Rignall believes there's still a place for print. According to the executive, the choice is either to become incredibly cheap and "disposable" or, as GamePro plans to do, become a more expensive, premium product. (more)

Commando perk removed from Modern Warfare 3

Monday, August 01, 2011 7:56:42 AM GMT
Love it or hate it, Modern Warfare 2's ninja-inducing Commando perk has gone the way of the dodo, and will not be flipping out and killing people in Modern Warfare 3. The perk, which allows for furious cursing near instantaneous melee attacks over an extended range, has been removed as part of an overall multiplayer balancing effort, according to a tweet posted by Infinity Ward Creative Strategist Robert Bowling.

Rumor: A Mirror's Edge sequel could get cooler with Frostbite 2 engine

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2153 days, 2 hours, 24 minutes ago
Monday, August 01, 2011 7:54:43 AM GMT
The Mirror's Edge and Battlefield franchises are related through more than developer-publisher relations -- they're poised to share digital DNA. If it is made, a sequel to Mirror's Edge may use Battlefield 3's Frostbite 2 engine, according to Official PlayStation Magazine, which writes, "The Frostbite 2 engine will pave the way for Mirror's Edge to make a free-running return."
