Tricked again! RUSE delayed to September

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2646 days, 15 hours, 7 minutes ago
Monday, April 26, 2010 5:39:31 AM GMT
Alright, RUSE dev team at Ubisoft, that's quite enough! This is at least the fourth time your game has been pushed back from a retail release and frankly, we're tired of thinking up punny headlines based on your game's title at this point. So we'll just be straight up with you, dearest reader: RUSE's Facebook page has been updated by the development team reflecting another delay until sometime in September. (more)

Ubisoft's DRM for Assassin's Creed II is Cracked

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2646 days, 15 hours, 26 minutes ago
Monday, April 26, 2010 5:20:16 AM GMT
In the ongoing effort to protect the hard work of the developers, Ubisoft created a DRM scheme that required a constant internet connection for all gameplay, be it single player or multiplayer. Without a constant connection to Ubisoft's master servers, the game cannot be played. This form of protection caused great inconveniences for buyers of the game, be it on the internet connection end or a takedown of the Ubisoft servers. While the DRM was causing grief for real buyers of the game, it did keep the ... (more)

StarCraft II's Cool, Sometimes Crazy Single Player Liberties

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2648 days, 22 hours, 38 minutes ago
Friday, April 23, 2010 10:08:42 PM GMT
Blizzard is creating a wildly different experience for those who choose to play StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty's single-player campaign, adding units, vehicles and upgrades that you just won't see in multiplayer, from the familiar Firebat to the bizarre Predator. The last time we played StarCraft II's single-player game, we laid out the unit, base and ship upgrades that will trick out units with special abilities you won't see in multiplayer games. At the time, that included the return of units from the ... (more)

Monkey Island 2 Special Edition screens tour Booty Island

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2648 days, 22 hours, 42 minutes ago
Friday, April 23, 2010 10:04:57 PM GMT
We're going to play a little game today. Here's the only rule: try not to be impressed by the graphical fidelity of these Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge screens. Don't marvel at the vibrant pirate spitting contest you see above. Don't cower at the menacing and highly-detailed visage of LeChuck himself. Scoff at the wares in the antique shop. Go ahead -- be unimpressed. (more)

Crysis 2 writer Richard Morgan hopes to avoid 'the Big Mac aesthetic'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2649 days, 42 minutes ago
Friday, April 23, 2010 8:04:26 PM GMT
In an interview with VG247, science fiction author Richard Morgan had some interesting things to say about his writing role on Crysis 2, the upcoming shooter set in a crumbling New York City. It's an industry role with a "soft" template, he explained, and it's not one without some familiar challenges. We're still dealing with a sequel and a superguy shooting aliens, after all. (more)

Left 4 Dead's Francis and Rochelle hate on everything

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2650 days, 1 hour, 12 minutes ago
Thursday, April 22, 2010 7:34:13 PM GMT
The new Left 4 Dead 2 DLC, "The Passing", is out today for the Xbox 360 (560 MS Points) and PC ($0.00). The downloadable content brings the survivors from both games together in a match made in zombie killing harmony. New enemies and game modes are also introduced in the new content pack. To celebrate this unholy union, Valve has released a new trailer full of hate. Hate on stairs, hate on bridges and hate on bad biker attire. (more)

The Luxuries And Problems With Six-Screen Gaming

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2650 days, 1 hour, 31 minutes ago
Thursday, April 22, 2010 7:15:22 PM GMT
Yesterday, in New York, I got to see graphics-card-maker AMD's six-monitor gaming set-up in action. They call it the Eyefinity 6, an arrangement that is powered by a $480 graphics card called the ATI Radeon 5870 (Eyefinity 6 Edition.) Various monitors can be wired together for an Eyefinity 6 set-up, but the unpriced all-in-one version was what I got to check out. It uses 19"x10" Samsung monitors (which sell separately for about $400 or $500). (more)

If there's one thing we probably have enough of by now, it's the MX/ATV genre of racers. Is there really room for another off-road racing game? There is with Nail'd, as this game is doing what the others haven't: make physics its b*tch. (more)

Zombie Studios has announced that its download only first-person shooter Blacklight: Tango Down will feature a cooperative mode called "Special Ops" when it's release later this year.

Frontier says its still 'working hard' on The Outsider

You might not remember Frontier Development's The Outsider, and that's fine. It's because it was announced back in 2005, and the developer hasn't spoken more than a few words about it since. Instead, it released a WiiWare game, LostWinds, and is hard at work on its sequel. (more)

Splinter Cell dev defends Ubisoft's 'always on' DRM

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2655 days, 1 hour, 34 minutes ago
Saturday, April 17, 2010 7:12:58 PM GMT
Though public opinion is almost unanimously against Ubisoft's current DRM solution, which forces players to have a constant internet connection in order to play the PC versions of the company's games, Splinter Cell: Conviction creative director Max Béland recently voiced his support for the anti-piracy protocols. "We consider that protecting our PC games is vital to our business and will allow us to continue investing in the development of creative and innovative games on the PC platform," Béland explain...
