MX vs. ATV vs. Xbox 360 Avatar Marketplace

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2359 days, 16 hours, 55 minutes ago
Sunday, May 08, 2011 5:59:17 AM GMT
Downloadable content is central to THQ's strategy for the (initially) budget-priced MX vs. ATV Alive. So it should come as no surprise that THQ is seeking DLC opportunities even outside of the game. A bunch of Xbox 360 Avatar items based on the off-road racer are available through the Marketplace now, in advance of the May 10 release of the game. So you can start buying DLC even before you get it! (more)

The first of eight original short stories in Rockstar's LA Noire: The Collected Stories series has just hit the web. Jonathan Santlofer's What's In a Name?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2359 days, 17 hours, 6 minutes ago
Sunday, May 08, 2011 5:47:41 AM GMT
Many have tried and failed to bring a 3D desktop interface to an otherwise 2D operating system, but that certainly hasn't stopped others from trying. The latest example to crop up comes courtesy of none other than Microsoft, which recently received a patent for what it describes as a "method and apparatus for providing a three-dimensional task gallery computer interface.

We anticipated that we'd be seeing some Portal 2 trick videos sooner or later -- but we wouldn't have predicted the tricks therein wouldn't really involve that many portals. Check out the video after the jump to see some truly impressive cube throws, by way of YouTube user Schrobotindisguise. (more)

Call of Juarez: The Cartel media kicks ass, doesn't stop to take names

Things are rough along the Mexican border. How does a government clean up such a cesspool of crime and lawlessness? Well, if it's a video game, you hire foul-mouthed men and women to kick down doors and shoot dudes like crazy. Results are results, we guess. (more)

Section 8: Prejudice update addresses community feedback

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2369 days, 13 hours, 26 minutes ago
Thursday, April 28, 2011 9:28:08 AM GMT
One of the only knocks we gave Section 8: Prejudice regarded its matchmaking system. Specifically, our review mentioned the game's lack of a party system and the general difficulty of playing with Xbox Live friends online. Apparently ours wasn't the only complaint, as TimeGate has addressed community feedback with a new title update. (more)

Dedicated server support added to Section 8: Prejudice on XBLA

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2371 days, 15 hours, 13 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 26, 2011 7:40:57 AM GMT
Well, this is certainly unexpected. No Xbox Live Arcade game to date has been afforded a dedicated server option. That is, until now. TimeGate Studios has announced that its recently released, multiplayer-centric title, Section 8: Prejudice, now allows Xbox Live players to access and play on PC-hosted servers through GameServers ... for a small fee.

How Rockstar built 1947 Los Angeles for L.A. Noire

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2371 days, 15 hours, 14 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 26, 2011 7:39:56 AM GMT
While much has been said about the animation technology used in L.A. Noire, a recent piece from the Los Angeles Times reveals that Rockstar and Team Bondi have expended considerable effort in recreating Los Angeles as it was in 1947. The development team used 1930s era Works Progress Administration maps and topographical information from the US Geological Society to create a city layout. (more)

Deus Ex: Human Revolution composer talks about his score's influences

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2371 days, 15 hours, 15 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 26, 2011 7:39:33 AM GMT
If you like the Tron: Legacy soundtrack, you'll love the Deus Ex: Human Revolution score -- if this sample posted on the PlayStation Blog is any indication. Composer Michael McCann doesn't actually mention the popular Daft Punk-penned tracks from last year's CGI spectacular, but you don't need a music degree to hear the similarities. (more)

Gearbox helps man propose via Claptrap

You can add one more feature to the list of Borderlands' Claptrap's various robotic abilities. Along with "dancin' ... dancin'!", getting angry about overlooked awards and taking over the world, you can now list "proposing marriage." That's what the wacky automatron did for one Gearbox Software fan named Ben, who reportedly found love with girlfriend Tora by playing co-op through the loot-littered FPS. (more)

Microsoft's "Mango" Will Be Windows Phone 7.5

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2371 days, 15 hours, 26 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 26, 2011 7:28:09 AM GMT
Although the description has since been removed, Friday WPCentral spotted mention of Windows Phone OS 7.5 over on Microsoft’s Partner Network site. The post seemingly backed up a previous "mistake" shown in a slide during MIX11 which referred to the next Windows Phone "Mango" update as v7.5. Guess this website slip-up was a mistake too? (more)

We're not sure we understand the appeal of Activision's upcoming, Kinect-equipped TV adaptation, Wipeout: In the Zone. The trailer after the jump should explain our hesitation -- see, self-inflicted trauma is hilarious, but not when inflicted on lifeless, unfeeling Avatars. (more)

Are the newfangled autocontraptions in Shift 2 Unleashed a little too modern for you? Not a fan of all the vehicular bells and whistles fastened to your 21st Century whips? EA has announced a DLC pack that should give you the sweet, nostalgic release you crave. On April 24, the game will receive 14 retro cars and five equally retro tracks -- most of which hail from the 1960s and '70s (more)
