E3: Kinect makes Max Scoville look ridiculous, giant

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2290 days, 1 hour, 49 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 14, 2011 9:18:26 AM GMT
If you paid attention to Microsoft's press conference at this year's E3, then it should come as no surprise that Kinect games are dominating the Xbox this year. While this may seem like good news for those of you who don't mind incorporating a little fitness into your video game routine, there is that nagging thought lying in the recesses of our brains: just how ridiculous does Kinect make us look?

Street Fighter 3: Third Strike Online Edition preview: Fight in the future

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2290 days, 1 hour, 50 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 14, 2011 9:17:11 AM GMT
Before I get started detailing what Street Fighter 3: Third Strike Online Edition is, I should mention what it isn't: an Xbox Live Arcade exclusive. I was under that impression, and so I was a little surprised to notice that, as I spoke with Capcom's Seth Killian, we were totally playing on a PS3. According to Killian, it's definitely coming to PSN, simultaneous with the XBLA release, and always was. (more)

The Gunstringer preview: How the west was fun

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2290 days, 1 hour, 51 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 14, 2011 9:16:18 AM GMT
The phrase "on rails" has something of a negative connotation in the video game industry. It implies that one's game design is lazy, or that it takes freedom away from the player. As developers come to grips with Kinect's controller-free technology, many of its experiences remain on rails, including several of the titles on display at E3. (more)

Hands-on with Power A's E3 lineup

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2290 days, 1 hour, 52 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 14, 2011 9:14:52 AM GMT
In addition to our video rundown of Power A's Batarang controllers, we also managed to snag some hands-on time with the rest of the company's current lineup. The star of the show was definitely the Pro Pack Mini Plus for the Wii, the successor to Power A's previous Pro Pack Mini. The Pro Pack Mini Plus improves over its predecessor with built-in Motion Plus and color changing LEDs. The $40 package, which includes a remote and nunchuck, felt great to hold, with comfortable form factor and rubberized coati... (more)

Lord of the Rings: War in the North preview: Death from above

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2292 days, 3 hours, 27 minutes ago
Sunday, June 12, 2011 7:39:38 AM GMT
We last saw Lord of the Rings: War in the North back in March, and the mechanics haven't changed much in the version seen on the floor of E3 earlier this week. It's still a three-player co-op game, featuring an elf caster, a human rogue and a dwarf fighter beating down some of the familiar baddies from the Lord of the Rings franchise with a nice layer of RPG on top. The game's not incredible, but it's a more than serviceable action title, made better with a few good friends to play with. (more)

Rayman Origins is the most colorful thing on Earth

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2295 days, 3 hours, 51 minutes ago
Thursday, June 09, 2011 7:15:59 AM GMT
The sheer amount of delight generated by the latest Rayman Origins media may be unquantifiable. Seriously, Ubisoft, it's not fair. Try and save some delight for everyone else. View the screens below and watch the trailer after the break, and try not to smile. We submit that it cannot be done. (more)

Fruit Ninja Kinect preview: Chop 'til you stop

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2296 days, 3 hours, 7 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 08, 2011 8:00:25 AM GMT
First, flatten your hands into the standard "Karate chop" shape. Curl your arms at the elbows so that your fingers are now pointed forward. For a more visceral experience, set a piece of fruit -- a banana, perhaps -- on a surface in front of you. Use a cutting board if it helps complete the illusion. Alternately, if you're in the position to give a friend or significant other a sensual massage, have them lie down in front of you. (more)

Wii U third-party sizzle reel composed of 360/PS3/PC footage

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2296 days, 3 hours, 8 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 08, 2011 7:59:17 AM GMT
When Nintendo showed off a reel of major third-party games currently in development for its newly announced console, the Wii U, the footage wasn't actually playing on Wii U hardware. Nintendo of America prez Reggie Fils-Aime casually admitted as much in a post-presser interview with GameTrailers, excusing it by saying, "We're talking a year away from when the system's gonna launch" -- a hard to argue point, considering developers probably need some time to, ya know, actually make games for it.

Avatar Kinect coming to Kinect Fun Labs in July

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2296 days, 3 hours, 8 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 08, 2011 7:58:40 AM GMT
One of the conspicuous absences from the Microsoft press briefing was Avatar Kinect, especially considering how hard the company hit the odd pseudo talk show service during its CES briefing in January. Tonight we managed to learn what's up with the feature (because we know how anxious you've been about the whole thing). (more)

Dance Central 2 preview: This is how we (both) do it

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2296 days, 3 hours, 9 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 08, 2011 7:58:11 AM GMT
Dance Central was undoubtedly one of the best and most successful launch titles for Microsoft's Kinect. Keeping that in mind, Dance Central 2 has some pretty big shoes to fill or, at the very least, another pair of shoes. The marquee new feature is definitely simultaneous two-player dance battles, which I was able to try out at Microsoft's expansive E3 booth. (more)

Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel will arrive in early October for $60, give you something to hold on to

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2297 days, 3 hours, 33 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 07, 2011 7:33:49 AM GMT
Microsoft's Kinect motion controls may be infiltrating all sorts of games at this year's E3, but the Xbox maker isn't neglecting those in need of a more tangible control scheme. A new Wireless Speed Wheel has just been revealed, with a reasonable $60 price tag and an early October launch date. As you see above, it's technically three-fourths of a wheel, but that does allow for extra green bands of lights to be applied and, slightly more importantly, a set of directional and action buttons to be added to ...

Rumor: Developers claim to be uncredited for LA Noire work

Monday, June 06, 2011 7:58:52 AM GMT
For the past seven years, Team Bondi and Rockstar Games have been toiling away on LA Noire -- an effort that, at least from a critical standpoint so far, has been totally worth it. But some developers who supposedly had a hand in solving the case of how to launch a game have gone uncredited and taken to the internet for justice by ... launching a website and Facebook page.

Switched On: As Windows loses its windows

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2298 days, 3 hours, 13 minutes ago
Monday, June 06, 2011 7:54:01 AM GMT
You say you want a revolution? Well, you know... . you might get one if you're a patient Windows user. With Windows' eighth major release (at least according to Microsoft's math), its name is becoming metaphorical. Taking on a default look that is rooted in Windows Phone 7 -- the first "Windows" to eschew windows -- with a smattering of Media Center, the next major version of Windows marks an overhaul of the initial user interface. Indeed, it is even a more radical departure than Apple made between Mac O... (more)

E3: The rubbish MS will announce for Xbox 360

Sunday, June 05, 2011 7:17:16 AM GMT
Microsoft has been pretty quiet in the run to E3, and it was speculated (by me) that we'd get a lame press conference from the Xbox 360 maker, for the third straight year. According to the list of games it's due to announce, the speculation is dead-on. (more)
