Fable 3 PC system requirements revealed, your highness

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2422 days, 15 hours, 15 minutes ago
Friday, April 01, 2011 8:35:07 PM GMT
Revolution doesn't come free, as any, uh, revolter (revolutioneer?) will tell you. On May 17, Fable 3 will launch on the Windows and bring with it a tale of two royal siblings vying for the crown -- but will you be able to cast off the shackles of oppression and fight for freedom? Probably not. I mean, have you ever tried to throw a shackle? They're heavy! (more)

THQ putting Kung Fu Panda 2 on Kinect, uDraw, DS and PS3

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2424 days, 3 hours ago
Thursday, March 31, 2011 8:49:48 AM GMT
We've got evidence to support the existence of a secret, underground contest in the gaming industry to bring a single title to the strangest, most random collection of platforms imaginable. Our proof? THQ's recently outlined release strategy for Kung Fu Panda 2 -- an adaptation of Dreamworks' upcoming animated feature, which will have a PS3 version, DS version, a Kinect-enabled 360 version and a uDraw GameTablet version on Wii. Like, a contest's the only possible explanation, right? (more)

Dirt 3 trailer previews the wicked dangerous Group B Rally

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2424 days, 3 hours, 34 minutes ago
Thursday, March 31, 2011 8:15:49 AM GMT
Rally racing is already an inconceivably dangerous sport -- but the now-forbidden "Group B" league once took things to new levels of speed and fatality. It might be illegal in the meatspace, but in Dirt 3, the spirit of Group B is alive and kicking, as seen in this trailer. (more)

Microsoft's 'updated Xbox 360 disc format' to add an extra gigabyte?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2424 days, 3 hours, 38 minutes ago
Thursday, March 31, 2011 8:11:58 AM GMT
As you'll recall from yesterday, there was one small detail that stood out in Microsoft's announcement of a new preview program for the Xbox 360 -- namely, word that the latest system update would bring with it an "updated Xbox 360 disc format." That naturally prompted plenty of speculation, and Eurogamer now says it has heard from a "highly placed development source" who has confirmed that the new disc format actually adds 1GB (more)

Monday, March 21, 2011 9:15:44 AM GMT
It's no secret that real professional race drivers play racing video games, sometimes even for training. EA has released a video of Dubai 24h winner Tommy Milner taking Shift 2 Unleashed, which hits March 29, through its paces in a Corvette C6.R GT1 at Leguna Seca. He's really, really good. (more)

Outland preview: Grace anatomy

posted by adminadmin 2434 days, 2 hours, 40 minutes ago
Monday, March 21, 2011 9:10:23 AM GMT
Not to besmirch the pleasures of mowing down aliens with the aid of a lumbering, gun-toting calzone of muscle and gruff one-liners, but I usually gravitate toward avatars that exhibit speed and panache. Games like Prince of Persia and N+ make quite a show of even basic movement, conveying an easily perceptible sense of momentum in their acrobatic lead characters. (more)

Konami 'investigating' Silent Hill multiplayer XBLA title, says Downpour dev

In an interview with Xbox 360 Magazine Italy (fan translated by Hell Descent and verified by Joystiq), when asked if the upcoming Silent Hill: Downpour will have a multiplayer mode, Vatra Games' Radek Marek surprisingly didn't get up and walk out, laughing. Instead, the art director replied, "At the moment there will be no multiplayer modes in Silent Hill: Downpour, but Konami are investigating a separate chapter devoted entirely to the Multiplayer (more)

FEAR 3 preview: On the run from The Wall

posted by adminadmin 2439 days, 5 hours, 2 minutes ago
Wednesday, March 16, 2011 6:48:04 AM GMT
It's always a good sign when a representative for a game developer who's leading you through a demo tells you, "No, that's not an in-house nickname -- that's what this game mode is actually called." The gametype in question is FEAR 3's "F*ing Run" (its actual moniker), a four-player cooperative mode that sends players down streets and alleys filled with enemies, whom they must mow down as they race from checkpoint to checkpoint.

MSFT to Kill Off Zune Hardware, Retain Software

posted by adminadmin 2439 days, 5 hours, 11 minutes ago
Wednesday, March 16, 2011 6:38:45 AM GMT
Last month, there were some unpleasant rumors that Microsoft was about to kill off the Zune devices and retain the brand for media services on the company's Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system. Microsoft attempted to dispel such talk with a statement via its Facebook page that said Zune services were safe. The company insisted it wasn't killing off "any Zune services or features" but that still left room for speculation about the devices themselves. (more)

Internet Explorer 9 gets WebM support with 'preview' plug-in from Google, internet video gets more friendly

posted by adminadmin 2439 days, 5 hours, 18 minutes ago
Wednesday, March 16, 2011 6:32:23 AM GMT
Google has released an early WebM plug-in for Microsoft's latest and greatest browser, IE9 -- stepping in to fill a gap that Microsoft itself refused to fill. You may remember the firm's decision to not build in support for the new standard natively, but that it was "all in" with HTML5, WebM's close cousin. Billed as a "technology preview" at this stage of the game, the add-on will enable users to play all WebM video content just like the good Internet overlords intended them to, despite the fact that an...

Monday, March 14, 2011 5:25:08 AM GMT
Portal 2 writer Erik Wolpaw wants you to know that Valve's upcoming sequel isn't as difficult as it looks. Trailers for the game show off plenty of insane action, filled with daring leaps, breakneck speeds and physically impossible tricks. "We're going to train you," Wolpaw told us at PAX East, "At no point are we going to ask you do something that we haven't prepared you to do." (more)

We know what some of you are thinking: Raiden from Metal Gear Solid is in Mortal Kombat? Boss! No, no, friends -- this is the original Raiden, god of thunder, who shoots lightning and flies through the air yelling something that sounds sorta like "play the ukelele!" Oh, and he's all about that hat. (more)
