Brothers torn asunder in Fable 3 E3 trailer

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2564 days, 14 hours, 22 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 15, 2010 7:46:46 PM GMT
How many things can you spy in the Fable 3 E3 trailer? Spell combinations, new melee maneuvers and ... is that naval combat? Watch for the Fable-y goodness. Stay for the John Cleese. (more)

Hydrophobia trailer floods our hearts and minds

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2564 days, 14 hours, 24 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 15, 2010 7:45:26 PM GMT
Dark Energy Digital fired off a new trailer for its exceptionally moist episodic action title Hydrophobia earlier today. As always, the water which protagonist Kate is forced to traverse looks wonderful (in a deadly kind of way). We're perplexed, however, by all the fire featured in said video. We're no scientists, but shouldn't that turn the aforementioned water into, well, steam? (more)

What the PS3 Needs to Compete with Kinect

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2565 days, 2 hours, 1 minute ago
Tuesday, June 15, 2010 8:07:50 AM GMT
Project Natal is officially called Kinect, but we don’t really know more than we did before, with the exception of the launch title lineup. What we do know, however, that Microsoft is serious about Kinect (as strange as this thing sounds) and the Xbox 360 is moving closer to general entertainment than ever before. Sony should take the challenge seriously. The PS3 platform needs some adjustment and upgrades. (more)

Netflix for Xbox 360 adds search in November

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2565 days, 2 hours, 11 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 15, 2010 7:58:27 AM GMT
It didn't get a slot during Microsoft's just-concluded Xbox 360 press conference, but the Netflix streaming app will finally add one of the most often requested (and denied) features: the ability to search through the entire Watch Instantly library and add movies to your queue, right from the console. Proudly stating it's the first gaming console to let you update your queue without a computer (Roku does it too, but try playing Gears of War on that) there's no word on any Kinect tie-ins, probably the rea...

Kinect, the new Xbox 360, and ESPN: highlights from Microsoft at E3 2010

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2565 days, 2 hours, 15 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 15, 2010 7:54:31 AM GMT
My, what big showing you have there, Microsoft. We're still recovering from today and yesterday's big Xbox 360 Kinect unveiling party, but let's take a brief trip down short-term memory lane. First, Project Natal became Kinect, unveiled a handful of interesting / guaranteed-to-embarrass uses, and solidified its November release date. Then ESPN3 made an impressive debut on Xbox Live. Finally, the piece de resistance, a slimmed down Xbox 360 250GB that came (almost) out of nowhere and hits retail as soon a... (more)

Xbox 360 Arcade to eventually be replaced by $199 new Xbox 360; data transfer cable will be $20

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2565 days, 2 hours, 18 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 15, 2010 7:51:09 AM GMT
Liking the form factor, but not the price? You could settle for an existing Xbox 360 Elite, Pro or Arcade, as we hear the introduction of the new Xbox 360 is being accompanied by a $50 price cut on existing units, but if your heart's set on that glossy black, there's a cheaper Stealthbox coming down the pike eventually. GameSpot reports a slim Xbox 360 Arcade successor will appear after the now-discontinued SKUs sell out for the same $200 as before. Not exactly surprising, but it's always nice to know. (more)

Kinect Dance Central preview, or how we learned to stop caring and love the groove (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2565 days, 2 hours, 25 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 15, 2010 7:44:36 AM GMT
We're gonna level with you, internet at large, we jumped at the chance to be on camera for our hands-on with Dance Central for Xbox 360's Kinect. It's not because we think we're good dancers -- we don't -- but it was subsequently decided that a lack of shame was more fun. So let's get on with the details. Menu navigation was a little janky at times, but selection was a simple swipe from the extreme right to left of an arm's length. As we saw earlier, the game is a progression of dance riffs you have to e... (more)

Our First Look At Natal's Star Wars, Sports Games (And Minority Report Menus)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2566 days, 3 hours, 23 minutes ago
Monday, June 14, 2010 6:45:48 AM GMT
Following tonight's Cirque du Soleil performance in Los Angeles, Microsoft gave us a first look at many of Kinect's first titles, most of which we'd never seen before. Most promising may well be a Star Wars game, developed by Microsoft and Lucasarts, that features controller-free lightsaber duels, complete with force powers like "force push". Kinect Sports, the most obvious clone of a Wii title, includes beach volleyball (which has Xbox Live multiplayer), bowling, hurdles, javelin and soccer. (more)

Microsoft's E3 Reveal ''Bigger than Natal''

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2566 days, 3 hours, 37 minutes ago
Monday, June 14, 2010 6:32:09 AM GMT
Recently Microsoft emailed Xbox.com members announcing that its big E3 2010 reveal will be bigger than last year's announcement of Project Natal. While we're expecting something significant in the 3D department, we're rather curious as how the company will top last year's event. To make matters worse, gamers will have to stew over the possibilities until Sunday and Monday. (more)

Xbox 360 Slim outed by Italian ad?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2566 days, 3 hours, 42 minutes ago
Monday, June 14, 2010 6:26:45 AM GMT
Of the rumored devices we've been looking forward to getting official at E3 this year, two of the biggest come from Microsoft -- both of which, sadly, seem to have escaped from their bag a little early. First is Kinect, the re-naming of "Project Natal," and now it's looking like the rumored Xbox 360 Slim has been leaked early as well. An Italian site, Console Tribe, ran an ad (embedded after the break) showing the above rather more angular looking console that's definitely an Xbox 360, but definitely no... (more)

Crysis 2 beta on the way, community site sign-ups get early access

Sunday, June 13, 2010 9:42:01 AM GMT
Excited about Crysis 2 but can't wait until the game arrives later this year? You could probably don a Nano Muscle Suit and spend the summer looking like a psychotic person -- or you could go over to the MyCrysis community page and sign up for an account, granting you a chance at early access to the beta. "What beta?" you say? Yep, turns out that Crytek is working on giving fans early access to its upcoming sequel. (more)

Devil's Third is Itagaki's bloody, bullet-filled new game

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2568 days, 1 hour, 29 minutes ago
Saturday, June 12, 2010 8:40:12 AM GMT
Missed Tomonobu Itagaki? After a controversial departure from Tecmo, the producer of Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden found himself with some free time ... and a job offer from THQ. Devil's Third is the debut game from his new studio, Valhalla Games -- and it features all the violence and gore that you'd want from an Itagaki game. Unlike many of his previous titles, this looks to be a multiplatfom release, gracing both the PS3 and Xbox 360. (more)

VATS what Fallout: New Vegas looks like!

Saturday, June 12, 2010 8:36:39 AM GMT
Finally! Actual gameplay footage of Obsidian's Fallout: New Vegas surfaced in the latest episode of GTTV, and unsurprisingly, it looks a lot like Fallout 3. If it weren't for the bright lights of the casinos, one would be hard-pressed to tell the difference. This E3 trailer is cut to make New Vegas look more like a FPS, but pay attention, and you'll see some VATS action as well. (more)

Dead Space 2 gameplay trailer aims for our eyes

Serious Sam HD promo brings us back to the House of Sam

Friday, June 11, 2010 5:14:36 AM GMT
No matter how you feel about Serious Sam's brand of first-person mayhem, you've got to admit the marketing behind the HD remakes has been brilliant -- and this latest video for Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter is no different. It's the second promo to feature the "House of Sam," a place where folks can worship His divine shotgun; where those afflicted with Krundle Blindness -- an inability to see things in high-def -- can be be cured. Mostly, it's a place of magic. (more)

Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 'Rockstar' contest wraps up, neat apps ensue

The success of Windows Phone 7 as a commercially viable mobile platform will ultimately depend on a great many things, but one of the biggest factors might be its chops as a gaming setup -- so naturally, we're excited to see each and every WP7 game that gets previewed right now. In March, Microsoft kicked off its so-called Rockstar competition, where student teams competed to make awesome apps (games or otherwise) for the platform in their choice of Silverlight or XNA -- and the results of the competiti...
