Harmonix brainstorming 'reimaginings' of Rock Band, new motion games

posted by adminadmin 2308 days, 18 hours, 19 minutes ago
Wednesday, March 02, 2011 9:17:07 AM GMT
"There's no denying that Rock Band 3 hasn't yet sold to the level we hoped it would out of the gate," Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopulos admitted to Edge. "But on the flipside of that we also believe that it's a product that has a lot of life." (more)

Half-Minute Hero coming to XBLA as 'Super Mega Neo Climax' edition

posted by adminadmin 2308 days, 18 hours, 23 minutes ago
Wednesday, March 02, 2011 9:13:33 AM GMT
Hey, Half-Minute Hero is coming to Xbox Live Arcade! Okay, usually we try to ease you into the subject of our posts a little more gently than that, but we assumed that if you were the type of person to be excited by the announcement that Half-Minute Hero was coming to Xbox Live Arcade, you probably have a pretty short attention span. We've probably already lost you, haven't we? You're not reading this at all. Now we have to start dropping aberrant words until we regain your attention. Bombogenesis. Ronko... (more)

THQ planning North Korean protest to promote Homefront

posted by adminadmin 2308 days, 18 hours, 23 minutes ago
Wednesday, March 02, 2011 9:13:07 AM GMT
Surprised? Yeah, we're not either. Turns out that THQ is once again planning a North Korean-themed event , though this time it's GDC that the publisher is invading. As reported by the SF Weekly, anti-North Korean protesters (read: hired actors) will be marching across the Golden Gate bridge, through the streets of SF, and ending across the street from GDC at Yerba Buena Gardens. And as you likely inferred from the headline above, the protest is staged in promotion of the company's next game, Homefront. (more)

Viral marketing lets slip the dogtags of Modern Warfare 3 [update: Activision comments]

posted by adminadmin 2312 days, 17 hours, 53 minutes ago
Saturday, February 26, 2011 9:43:33 AM GMT
Two years ago, Infinity Ward used the Game Developer's Conference Awards show to unveil the trailer (and date!) for its hugely anticipated followup, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. If we're reading the signals right, it's looking to use the conference for the reveal of the third installment (Modern Warfare 3?), a game that's been shrouded in mystery following the developer's very public (and very ugly!) executive departures.

Epic to show new Unreal Engine 3 updates at GDC, raises UDK royalty-free threshold to $50K

Thursday, February 24, 2011 9:14:28 AM GMT
Next week, Epic Games will once again premiere the latest build of Unreal Engine 3 at GDC, a showing-off that's become pretty much tradition for the North Carolina-based studio. In its announcement, Epic promises behind-closed-doors demonstrations of the new tech every half-hour during the conference for "licensees, partners, prospective customers and the media." (more)

Minecraft clone coming to Xbox Live Indie Games: FortressCraft

Wednesday, February 23, 2011 6:45:49 AM GMT
Are you wildly in love with Minecraft, but your computer lacks the technoguts required to really process its cuboid contents? First of all, your computer is whack. Secondly: Independent studio Projector Games is working on an extremely similar title for the Xbox Live Indie Games platform. Check out the fan-made video posted after the jump to see just how extremely similar we mean. (more)

Call of Juarez: The Cartel ban proposed in Mexico

posted by adminadmin 2316 days, 19 hours, 14 minutes ago
Tuesday, February 22, 2011 8:22:07 AM GMT
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Call of Juarez: The Cartel has angered officials in Mexico. State legislators in the border town of Ciudad Juarez (located in the state of Chihuahua) have asked the Mexican government to impose a ban, arguing that the game's content could potentially make light of recent drug violence across the region and cause children to grow up with a "lack of values."

Black Ops outmaneuvers Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on UK charts

posted by adminadmin 2316 days, 19 hours, 15 minutes ago
Tuesday, February 22, 2011 8:21:07 AM GMT
Call of Duty: Black Ops received some marketing reinforcements last week in the UK to regain the top spot, its eighth time as king of the hill. The move stole Marvel vs. Capcom 3's premiere Thor thunder, as the fighter debuted in second place. Don't feel too bad for MvC3, though -- Chart-Track notes that the title sold as many copies in its first week as its predecessor did in its lifetime on PS2 and Xbox (the company doesn't have access to the XBLA and PSN figures).

Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars delayed to March 22

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2338 days, 20 hours, 21 minutes ago
Monday, January 31, 2011 7:14:50 AM GMT
Apparently, LucasArts needs just a little more time than it anticipated to adequately polish the lightsabers of Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars -- the game has been pushed from its initial February 15 release date to March 22. Or, as a character from Lego Star Wars 3 might pronounce it, "Uhhnnn, aaahhh! Eeeeeaaaahh!" (more)

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters doesn't just add the titular tournament of masters -- for the first time, caddies will feature in EA Sports' golf sim. The club-toting sidekicks have been introduced in an effort to make the game more accessible to players that don't know much about real golf (let alone the great luxury of a personal sidekick).

Warning: Mortal Kombat's 'X-ray moves' revealed in this trailer

This Mortal Kombat trailer shows off the new "X-ray mode," attacks that give an inside look at the damage caused. We wish this tech had been around for Mortal Kombat 2, so we could understand the anatomical makeup of all those people who seemed to be made entirely of arm bones and intestines. (more)

5th Cell's 'Hybrid' to feature persistent online war

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2342 days, 18 hours, 28 minutes ago
Thursday, January 27, 2011 9:08:39 AM GMT
5th Cell continues to hold back details on its XBLA shooter Hybrid, but the developer has released one key nugget that recalls games like PlanetSide and Chromehounds. Hybrid will feature a "a persistent online world war" with "hundreds of thousands" of players on a "single, unified world server." As always, the war will be waged between the blue team (the Paladins) and red team (the Variants), as the two sides fight to control "territories and countries, leading to global domination" on what appears to b...

Dead Space 2 trailer literalized by Tobuscus

Toby "Tobuscus" Turner's literal adaptations of trailers are both hilarious and impressive. His latest effort is no different: a Dead Space 2 TV ad combining his parodying skills with the ad's song, Smashing Pumpkins' 1995 hit, "Bullet with Butterfly Wings." (more)

Monday, January 24, 2011 6:55:38 AM GMT
The UNCTV report posted after the jump is noteworthy for two reasons: First, it shows off a bunch of Gears of War 3 multiplayer during a tour of Epic Games' HQ. Second, it's a mainstream news report about video games that isn't awkward and condescending enough to peel the flesh off your bones. (more)

Dead Space 2 includes code for 'Ser Isaac of Clarke' armor in Dragon Age 2

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2348 days, 18 hours, 21 minutes ago

EA has announced that early copies of Dead Space 2 (due out next Tuesday, January 25) will include a code to unlock special "Ser Isaac of Clarke" armor in Dragon Age 2, which arrives March 8. As you can see in the video after the break, the armor is a little more, well, medieval than Clarke's rig in Dead Space, but the resemblance is certainly there. (more)
