Natural Selection 2 playable alpha starting soon

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2710 days, 12 hours, 35 minutes ago
Thursday, July 15, 2010 9:13:56 AM GMT
Natural Selection 2 is a game we haven't really covered before in any official capacity. I don't have a good reason as to why that is, but I'm here to make amends. This real-time strategy/first-person shooter hybrid has always been on my radar under the "fascinating yet far off" category. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2712 days, 12 hours, 45 minutes ago
Tuesday, July 13, 2010 9:03:36 AM GMT
We're right in the middle of convention season, but even if you're not planning to hit up San Diego, Seattle or Tokyo this year, there's always Salt Lake City. That's where the Gaming and Electronics Expo (GEEX) is being held this coming weekend. With a 27-hour LAN party, tournaments and exhibits all weekend long, and over 15,000 attendees expected, it sounds like Sandy, Utah (just south of SLC) will be rocking it. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2714 days, 13 hours, 11 minutes ago
Sunday, July 11, 2010 8:38:13 AM GMT
The official Left 4 Dead 2 blog has posted the latest mutation to Valve's great zombie apocalypse simulation and it's ... swords. All swords, all the time. Hacking, slashing, slicing, dicing, piercing, thrusting -- you name it, you'll be doing it against the undead horde. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2714 days, 13 hours, 15 minutes ago
Sunday, July 11, 2010 8:33:35 AM GMT
The schedule for San Diego Comic Con 2010 was updated earlier today, adding a few game-centric panels focusing on titles like Guild Wars 2, Red Faction Armageddon, Epic Mickey and more to Saturday's proceedings. However, one panel in particular caught our eye: "Video Game Reveal: Maxis Studio." According to the event's details, the panel will see a handful of members from the Maxis dev team unveil "a brand new, Sci-Fi Action-RPG based on the DNA of Spore." (more)

Report: China to ban violent, sexual marketing of online games

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2714 days, 13 hours, 18 minutes ago
Sunday, July 11, 2010 8:31:18 AM GMT
China's Ministry of Culture is once again cracking down on the online game industry in an attempt to limit the amount of "unwholesome" content the sector produces. According to a report from China Daily, the nation's officials are prohibiting the use of sex, violence or gambling to market Chinese developers' online games. Like the other regulations under this initiative, these restrictions will be effective as of August 1. (more)

Plants vs. Zombies 2 is a thing?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2715 days, 11 hours, 49 minutes ago
Saturday, July 10, 2010 10:00:10 AM GMT
Are you one of the many bajillions who went apeshit over Plants vs. Zombies? If so, then a winner is you, for there seems to be some strong hints at a sequel. According to the above teaser image, we have to save the date of August 2 as some form of undead-flavored news is on the way! The general consensus is that this is the announcement of Plants vs. Zombies 2, although we're sure PopCap will remain tight-lipped about it until next month. (more)

Civilization V goes classy with its special edition

Saturday, July 10, 2010 9:57:40 AM GMT
Now granted, "classy" isn't the first word that pops into my mind when I see little metal men -- in fact, it would probably be one of the last descriptors to come up -- but look at that slick art for the box/book/CD covers. I can picture an aged gentleman smoking a pipe by the fireplace while eying it thoughtfully. (more)

Hold your breath for Sniper: Ghost Warrior patch

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2715 days, 12 hours, 31 minutes ago
Saturday, July 10, 2010 9:18:03 AM GMT
City Interactive has announced that a patch is headed to its recently released sneaky shooter, Sniper: Ghost Warrior. The patch is set to fix some GUI problems -- including multiplayer stats -- and will also fix some multiplayer bugs, like the ability to run outside the map. Multiplayer will also see the "Increased ability" for a player to hold his breath. Perhaps most importantly, the patch will fix a crashing issue on the PC version. (more)

Gears of War, BioShock Added to GFWL Download

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2715 days, 12 hours, 36 minutes ago
Saturday, July 10, 2010 9:12:21 AM GMT
If you haven't checked out Microsoft's Games for Windows Live service for the PC lately, you might be in for a little shock. When the stand-alone client was first introduced last year, only a few PC games were available to purchase and download including Viva Pinata, Fallout 3, Shadowrun and a few others. Now the service offers 49 games to download--but only 9 demos to test drive. Go figure. (more)

ACE Team putting Zeno Clash 2 on the back burner

Thursday, July 08, 2010 8:10:16 AM GMT
In a sea of sequels, one of my biggest surprises at E3 2010 was ACE Team's Rock of Ages. Long story short, it's batsh*t crazy and I desperately want to try it out. Long story long, Tim has a preview of this bizarre take on the increasingly lifeless tower defense genre. (more)

Now You Really Can Drink Like A Murloc

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2719 days, 13 hours, 17 minutes ago
Tuesday, July 06, 2010 8:31:51 AM GMT
Drink mead, World of Warcraft fans? If you don't, you may want to start, then start drinking from one of these. It's a new entry in Taverncraft's line of steins and tankards (they've done Warhammer Online ones previously), and rather than go the dignified route and emblazon it with heraldry and heroic deeds, they've slapped some murlocs on the front and a rather fetching solid pewter murloc on the lid.

Console APB still in question, Realtime Worlds explains

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2719 days, 13 hours, 32 minutes ago
Tuesday, July 06, 2010 8:17:07 AM GMT
There was a time when Realtime Words' APB was planned for consoles, but as it fights for survival on PC retail and virtual shelves, it appears it still hasn't found the right publishing partner for a console version. Realtime Worlds Creative Director Dave Jones tells Eurogamer that a console version won't happen until it finds a publishing partner and works out several other logistics, including pricing and "running dedicated servers for console" MMOs.

StarCraft 2 getting 3D support post-launch

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2721 days, 12 hours, 56 minutes ago
Sunday, July 04, 2010 8:53:05 AM GMT
While StarCraft 2 may benefit from a "robust new 3D graphics-rendering engine," we didn't know until recently that the game would be receiving a post-launch patch enabling that other kind of 3D (read: the "needs glasses" kind). In an interview with IGN at a South Korean media event -- where, no joke, a StarCraft 2 logo-emblazoned Korean Air plane was unveiled -- production director Chris Sagaty explained, "We will be releasing 3D in the first few months, for those Nvidia cards and screens that support it."

Freemium WoW is not something Blizzard is 'spending a lot of time thinking about'

Thursday, July 01, 2010 8:18:40 AM GMT
While you may think your friends at Joystiq are only on the prowl for the hottest gaming scoops, we want you to know that's not true ... we also monitor the fabric of the universe for any tears that might upset its delicate balance. Do not panic, but World of Warcraft's lead designer, Tom Chilton, mentioned to PC Gamer that "at some point, it may not make sense for us to have a subscription fee." Now, pause and savor the moment, because it's fleeting. (more)
