Monday, April 18, 2011 8:48:38 AM GMT
Ladies and gentlemen, we'd like to present to you the latest trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. What? Oh, sorry! In actuality, it's the teaser for Risen 2: Dark Waters -- a pirate-y action-RPG that looks to have a fair bit of flair, if this CG footage is anything to go b (more)

Monday, April 18, 2011 8:47:57 AM GMT
When Crytek announced that the third iteration of its ambitious CryEngine technology would appear on both PC and consoles, a portion of its hardcore fans became skeptical -- would the engine's progression be hampered by a dumbed-down ball-and-chain? (more)

Way too much Akai Katana Shin footage

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2317 days, 3 hours, 18 minutes ago
Monday, April 18, 2011 8:47:25 AM GMT
After the break, you'll find four videos of Akai Katana Shin, the (unfortunately region-locked) Xbox 360 version of Cave's latest arcade shmup, including one clip of the console-exclusive "Zetsu" ("Absolute") mode, one "expert mode" clip, one "beginner mode," and finally a new trailer. This may prove to be too much sensory input for your brain. Just a warning. (more)

Get in the dick-killing mood with a free Bulletstorm soundtrack

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2320 days, 5 hours, 26 minutes ago
Friday, April 15, 2011 6:39:16 AM GMT
As a "thank you" to its fans, Epic has released the entire Bulletstorm soundtrack for free. Composed by Michal Cielecki and Krzysztof Wierzynkiewicz, the music is surprisingly devoid of the profuse, ridiculous profanity associated with Bulletstorm. That said, and you'll know this if you've played the game, it is the perfect music for scaring, killing or otherwise negatively affecting dicks. (more)

Exceptionally colorful FPS Xotic announced for XBLA

Friday, April 15, 2011 6:38:41 AM GMT
No one can accuse Xotic of having that generic brown-and-grey FPS "look." Developer WXP Games has some experience in the genre, having developed last generation's Greg Hastings Tournament Paintball, but is going decidedly sci-fi with this XBLA-exclusive title. (more)

The post-launch support team at Bethesda and Obsidian is preparing to launch a fix for one of the biggest issues still facing Fallout: New Vegas. No, not its apocalyptic levels of irradiation -- the game-crashing bugs and other performance-wrecking snafus that pepper the game's ruined landscape. According to a recent post on Bethesda's blog, a patch targeting "optimizations and stability improvements" is currently in the certification process for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. (more)

Rebellion's supernatural action title, NeverDead, has a unique hook: Its main character can fight even when his limbs have been severed. Part Devil May Cry, Bayonetta and even Dead to Rights, it also seems to share Splatterhouse's sphincter fixation. It's all pieced together in these new screens. (more)

According to an Xbox Live profile allegedly belonging to one of the beta program administrators, both Avatar Kinect and Hulu Plus features are being tested. Both applications can be seen on the profile, though links to their respective Xbox.com listings appear to be broken for the time being. (more)

Remedy: LA Noire raises the bar for facial animation

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2323 days, 4 hours, 45 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 12, 2011 7:20:08 AM GMT
When we first saw the facial-mapping in LA Noire, we must admit we were taken aback. The level of realism is something amazing to behold, as we've said in the past, but we're not the only ones impressed. Edge toured Remedy Entertainment recently, sampling some of the developer's new motion-capture tech for it's next game, and the studio is apparently quite enamored with what they've seen in LA Noire.
