SSX trailer re-introduces Mac to the mountain

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2237 days, 19 hours, 25 minutes ago
Sunday, June 05, 2011 7:15:20 AM GMT
SSX Deadly Descents (sorry, it's just SSX now, we forgot) has a brand new trailer out, and there's a peek at the new version of SSX standby Mac Fraser, who looks ... just as generic as all the previous versions. At least all that powder and those gnarly ramps look fun. (more)

E3 2011: The big schedule

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2237 days, 19 hours, 25 minutes ago
Sunday, June 05, 2011 7:14:46 AM GMT
The big week is almost upon us, folks: E3 2011. And if this week is any indication of days to come, we'll have a constant flow of news mainlined directly from Los Angeles to your think meat. With that in mind, there are a handful of focal points throughout the week that will assuredly strike you as high priority, and as such, we thought a roadmap guiding you to those particular moments -- whether you're in Shibuya, or Queens, or anywhere else for that matter -- would be of particular use.

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2237 days, 19 hours, 26 minutes ago
Sunday, June 05, 2011 7:14:04 AM GMT
No one likes to be stuck behind a velvet rope. As such, we couldn't abide the fact that the Duke Nukem Forever is currently available only to a select few, so we wrangled up the demo for ourselves and captured a little footage. Check out the video after the break and see what more than ten years has done for the Duke. (more)

Rumor: Domains reveal new Fable, Dance Central and Kinect Sports

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2237 days, 19 hours, 26 minutes ago
Sunday, June 05, 2011 7:13:39 AM GMT
The announcement of sequels and spin-offs has become too routine to incur huge gasps of disbelief at E3's trio of biggest press conferences. A real surprise, then, would be in those titles staying under wraps until the very last moment. "Spoiler," says the internet, "but that's not happening while I'm around. Check out these domain registrations." (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2237 days, 19 hours, 36 minutes ago
Sunday, June 05, 2011 7:03:40 AM GMT

Newest Kinect hack: a grocery cart that loyally follows disabled shoppers (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2237 days, 19 hours, 38 minutes ago
Sunday, June 05, 2011 7:02:33 AM GMT
Microsoft's Kinect is the gift that keeps on giving for hackers, spawning everything from glasses-free teleconferencing to Tesla coil manipulation to uh, well, Android dance parties. But Luis de Matos's wi-Go project is one of the most socially conscious we've seen: it adds a laptop and (despite its name) a Kinect to a shopping cart, enabling the cart to follow a wheelchair user. Improving on the B.O.S.S. bot we saw a half-decade ago, the wi-Go could allow anyone -- including the disabled or elderly -- t... (more)

Rumor: Microsoft 'Could' Buy Nokia for $19 Billion

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2240 days, 18 hours, 22 minutes ago
Thursday, June 02, 2011 8:17:37 AM GMT
Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin recently reported that Microsoft was in talks with Nokia regarding an acquisition of the latter's phone division. Nokia's been floundering in the smartphone space and recently revealed plans to make Windows Phone 7 its primary smartphone OS. Throw in the fact that Stephen Elop, a former Microsoft employee, recently took over as CEO of Nokia and an acquisition doesn't seem to unlikely. Still, despite this, the Finnish company quickly moved to dispel gossip started by Murtazi... (more)

Thursday, June 02, 2011 7:54:32 AM GMT

Look, we're really not that into the whole phone thing, but one thing about this YouTube video of the alleged update has caught our eye: Avatar interaction. Sure, we've seen Avatar accosting before on our phone, but the 'Mango' update looks to implement even more ways for your Avatar to act out -- specifically, the emotions of anger, stop poking me and leave me the hell alone.

Though it's possible you've been offered the opportunity to dress like a space wolf at some other point today, we were quite excited to be extended such a chance by the newly announced pre-order bonuses for Warhammer 40K: Space Marine. Folks pre-ordering the forthcoming third-person space shooter at GameStop will get the hilariously named armor, as well as the "black templar chapter armor." A variety of other bonuses are available from several other retailers, detailed below the break. (more)
