posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2352 days, 14 hours, 52 minutes ago
Monday, December 20, 2010 10:30:13 AM GMT
The Major Nelson podcast brings the first details of the initial, inevitable Call of Duty: Black Ops map pack. "First Strike" will be released on Xbox Live on February 1, 2011 -- as a timed exclusive, so give it about a month if you want it on another platform. The pack includes four competitive maps: "Discovery," based on the Reznov mission and taking place in an Antarctic research station; "Kowloon" set in, of course, Kowloon, this time on rooftops; "Berlin Wall," a fight at Checkpoint Charlie; and "St...

Recording Alan Wake audio was just as scary as listening to it

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2362 days, 16 hours, 16 minutes ago
Friday, December 10, 2010 9:06:06 AM GMT
In a recent interview with Designing Sound, the audio team behind Alan Wake revealed much about their process creating the game's creepy soundscape. One of the more interesting bits in the interview involves the field recording that was done to capture some of the nature sounds of the forest. Pete Comley, a freelance sound designer hired for the project, actually lives in Washington and recorded sounds in many of the forests on which Alan Wake's environments are based. (more)

Is the PSP Phone a Eureka Moment For Microsoft?

Thursday, December 09, 2010 8:26:48 AM GMT
Pictures of the upcoming Sony Ericsson Zeus smartphone leave little doubt that Sony has a good shot at attracting an influential group of young customers that should have gone to Microsoft. It may be time for Microsoft to go back to the drawing board already and rethink what Windows Phone 7 really is. (more)

XtendPlay extends your Xbox 360 or PS3 controller, vertically

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2369 days, 15 hours, 2 minutes ago
Friday, December 03, 2010 10:20:17 AM GMT
Your Xbox or PS3 controller is okay the way it is ... but it could be so much more boogie board-shaped. The XtendPlay attachment adds a big block of foam to the bottom of your controller, apparently to both make your grip on your controller more comfortable and allow you to rest the whole thing in your lap more easily. Or something. (more)

Kinect sells 26,000 in Japanese launch weekend

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2373 days, 16 hours, 13 minutes ago
Monday, November 29, 2010 9:08:54 AM GMT
Kinect had what most people would call a successful launch, moving over one million units worldwide during its first week on store shelves; however, the device wasn't met with quite as warm a reception in Japan. According to Media Create, Microsoft's new all-seeing eye had a "quiet start" in the region, moving just 26,000 units during its launch weekend of November 20 -- that includes both standalone and 360-bundled Kinects.

Kinect hacked into Super Mario Bros. emulator controller

Monday, November 29, 2010 9:06:45 AM GMT
YouTube user Yankeyan recently showed off one of the cleverest Kinect hacks we've seen to date: He's managed to use the motion-sensing gadget to control Super Mario Bros. 1 - 3 on an NES emulator. Well, he kind of controls it. We've never seen anyone work so hard to grab that first mushroom before. (more)

Sega resets Sonic 4's leaderboards due to cheating

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2374 days, 14 hours, 19 minutes ago
Sunday, November 28, 2010 11:03:18 AM GMT
Look, Sonic the Hedgehog is fast. He can run faster than the speed of sound, but even if he ran full speed through Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1's shortest level, it would still take him longer than 0'00"00 to do it. That's just physically impossible, even for an improbably proportioned and colored hedgehog. And since some hackers have posted those times and impossible scores on the game's Xbox 360 leaderboards, Sega has decided to go through and reset the whole thing. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2378 days, 15 hours, 22 minutes ago
Wednesday, November 24, 2010 10:00:15 AM GMT
hile Battlefield: Bad Company 2 soldiers wait for VIP Map Pack 7 and -- more importantly -- a Vietnam release date, it appears that a much-welcomed update to the game's multiplayer is coming to consoles. You'll recall that a version of the patch was released for PC last month. Included in the multiplayer patch are several needed tweaks, the most important of which is the 50 percent weapon damage reduction to MCOM stations so the device doesn't detonate instantly thanks to the ol' "C4 on UAV" exploit.

Good news: Microsoft has plans to offer Kinect development tools to XNA developers. Confirmation comes via Xbox director of incubation Alex Kipman, who said during an interview on Talk of the Nation that, while there's no current Kinect functionality in XNA, it's something Microsoft "will support in the future."

You will not be taken for a ride by a Marvel vs. Capcom 3 demo

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2378 days, 15 hours, 34 minutes ago
Wednesday, November 24, 2010 9:48:32 AM GMT
We're pretty sure if we were given only a handful of characters and stages from Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds in a free trial, we could stretch out our enjoyment of it for an awfully long time. We won't get the opportunity, however: In a recent post on the Capcom Unity forums, VP of Strategic Planning Christian Svensson confirmed to anticipatory fans that, "As with Street Fighter IV, there will be no demo of MvC3."

Catherine trailer is concerned with your well-being

Tuesday, November 23, 2010 7:46:59 AM GMT
"You've been weird lately." Katherine (with a K) notices that much about protagonist Vincent, at least, in this Catherine trailer (after the break). Whether she understands the context -- that he's being pursued by a mysterious woman (Catherine with a C) and also dreaming of turning into a sheep monster every night -- is unclear. (more)

What better day to announce a new entry in a long-standing franchise than the release date for what is, arguably, the best installment in the series to date. Today, on Need for Speed Hot Pursuit's big day, EA has stolen some of that thunder by announcing Shift 2 Unleashed, the sequel to last year's simulation-style installment. (more)
