Bilson gets to the heart of the new THQ in IGDA Leadership keynote

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2473 days, 1 hour, 11 minutes ago
Friday, November 12, 2010 8:34:00 AM GMT
Keynoting the IGDA Leadership Forum last week, THQ "core games" boss Danny Bilson not only reflected on the publisher's steady turnaround (despite a recent slump), but also focused on its goals for the future. Previously reported updates from Bilson on Homefront, Darksiders 2 and Guillermo Del Toro's project, however, were just mere nuggets from his near hour-long presentation, which kicked off with a retelling of his personal journey from non-interactive media to games.

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2473 days, 1 hour, 22 minutes ago
Friday, November 12, 2010 8:23:35 AM GMT
Taking to the US PlayStation blog, EA Bright Light producer Justin Manning revealed the imminent release date for his studio's next game release, Create: November 16 (aka: next Tuesday!). We've also confirmed that Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii iterations of the game will arrive on the same day next week. Given the game's user created level sharing ability via PSN and PlayStation Move functionality, perhaps Create can fill the hole left in your heart by the LittleBigPlanet 2 delay? M ... maybe? (more)

Call of Duty: Black Ops review: The great battle

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2475 days, 23 hours, 21 minutes ago
Tuesday, November 09, 2010 10:24:06 AM GMT
Maybe it's our competitive streak. Maybe it's the fact that we're constantly battling, over leaderboards and in deathmatches, that pushes us to compare one console against another, one franchise title against its peers, or even, as the industry has grown and matured, one developer's artistic creation against another's. Even when developers work in huge teams for years to craft a great experience, we're children of numbers and "less or greater than," of rankings and high scores and levels. Someone's got t... (more)

Harmonix explains Rock Band 3 legacy track upgrades, pricing

Tuesday, November 09, 2010 10:18:13 AM GMT
This week's Bon Jovi Rock Band DLC will include previously released tracks that now have an "RB3 Version." There was confusion about whether these songs, which now include keyboard and harmony support, would have their previous "legacy" versions upgraded for free. That will not be the case. (more)

New Transformers, Spider-Man and more next year, Activision doing 'large-scale' Call of Duty

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2478 days, 1 hour, 24 minutes ago
Sunday, November 07, 2010 8:20:59 AM GMT
Activision's recent conference call wasn't all facts and figures, you know. The company also outlined the future of some of its biggest franchises over the course of the next calendar year. According to CEO Eric Hirshberg, the publisher will launch titles from "proven franchises including the Hero brand, Spider-Man, X-Men and Transformers, which will be supported by what is expected to be another major blockbuster movie from Michael Bay." Sounds like they're kinda putting the cart in front of the giant, ... (more)

Armored Core 5 retargeted for early 2011

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2478 days, 1 hour, 27 minutes ago
Sunday, November 07, 2010 8:18:02 AM GMT
We're nearing the end of 2010, and with it comes not only the sweet sounds and scents of the holidays, but the yearly retreat of a few popular game titles to the next calendar year. Armored Core 5 is the latest game to join the migration -- a big announcement last January promised the game in 2010, but Famitsu is now reporting that From Software has pushed the date into early 2011.

Rumor: Force Unleashed 2 PC files hint at DLC (or cut content)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2479 days, 1 hour, 40 minutes ago
Saturday, November 06, 2010 8:04:49 AM GMT
Over on GAF, some screenshots of apparent file directories installed as part of the PC version of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 provide some pretty strong evidence of potential DLC or cut content -- what is it about the PC versions of these games not being able to keep their mouths shut? The files detail an additional level taking place on Endor, where Starkiller The Dos apparently takes on some ewok forces. There's more detail in the GAF thread, but it's kinda spoilery, so consider yourself warned. (more)

New Xbox Dashboard adds updated piracy measures

The latest Xbox 360 Dashboard update didn't just make the Avatars taller and give you the ability to navigate its menus with your mind -- it also made the illicit enterprise of pirates just a little bit more difficult. According to Digital Foundry, the hardware now institutes a series of checks, which hackers refer to as "AP 2.5," that work in conjunction with "security sectors" embedded in the disc. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2480 days, 1 hour, 4 minutes ago
Friday, November 05, 2010 8:41:29 AM GMT
Thanks to "strong performance" from industry staples like Activision Publishing's Call of Duty franchise and Blizzard Entertainment's perennial MMO World of Warcraft and a stellar launch for Blizz's long-anticipated sequel StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty, Activision Blizzard exceeded its prior third-quarter outlook of $600 million with net revenues of $745 million in the period ending September 30, 2010.

One time, I was pushing a TV around so I could watch He-Man while I ate my Cap'n Crunch in the dining room. I was four years old. I accidentally pushed the TV over, bringing it smashing down on my finger. I had to get eight stitches and I eventually lost the fingernail. (more)

Kinect vs. our living rooms: A survey

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2480 days, 1 hour, 11 minutes ago
Friday, November 05, 2010 8:34:13 AM GMT
Some of us at Joystiq have had Kinect units in our living rooms for a week or so now and, as you read in our review, Kinect can be especially sensitive about your interior decorating. Couch to close to the television? Just move it, the sensor advises. Massive coffee table right where you should be standing? Just slide it out of the way, it suggests. For some of us, this ad-hoc redecorating process is relatively painless (more)

W3C: A Case of Careless Management

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2480 days, 1 hour, 21 minutes ago
Friday, November 05, 2010 8:24:10 AM GMT
Yesterday I published a pretty entertaining story about how you can misrepresent characteristics of a product by skewing benchmarks (read the details here.) the article was based on a rather questionable browser benchmark procedure published by the W3C that aimed to indicate the HTML5 compliance of web browsers. The problem was that browser that cannot be compared and that there was, in particular, an IE version that was not available at the time of the test run. (more)
