posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2311 days, 21 hours, 20 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 26, 2011 7:40:57 AM GMT
Well, this is certainly unexpected. No Xbox Live Arcade game to date has been afforded a dedicated server option. That is, until now. TimeGate Studios has announced that its recently released, multiplayer-centric title, Section 8: Prejudice, now allows Xbox Live players to access and play on PC-hosted servers through GameServers ... for a small fee.

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2315 days, 22 hours, 37 minutes ago
Friday, April 22, 2011 6:24:11 AM GMT
Are the newfangled autocontraptions in Shift 2 Unleashed a little too modern for you? Not a fan of all the vehicular bells and whistles fastened to your 21st Century whips? EA has announced a DLC pack that should give you the sweet, nostalgic release you crave. On April 24, the game will receive 14 retro cars and five equally retro tracks -- most of which hail from the 1960s and '70s (more)

Way too much Akai Katana Shin footage

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2319 days, 20 hours, 14 minutes ago
Monday, April 18, 2011 8:47:25 AM GMT
After the break, you'll find four videos of Akai Katana Shin, the (unfortunately region-locked) Xbox 360 version of Cave's latest arcade shmup, including one clip of the console-exclusive "Zetsu" ("Absolute") mode, one "expert mode" clip, one "beginner mode," and finally a new trailer. This may prove to be too much sensory input for your brain. Just a warning. (more)

Exceptionally colorful FPS Xotic announced for XBLA

Friday, April 15, 2011 6:38:41 AM GMT
No one can accuse Xotic of having that generic brown-and-grey FPS "look." Developer WXP Games has some experience in the genre, having developed last generation's Greg Hastings Tournament Paintball, but is going decidedly sci-fi with this XBLA-exclusive title. (more)

Our friends at Joystiq have obtained screenshots showing off Hulu Plus in action on the console, as well as a shot of the Kinect Hub with Hulu and Netflix apps included. According to their tipster the Hulu (which looks similar to Zune Video as predicted) and Avatar Kinect apps are "fully functional," with good tracking of their movements similar to existing uses for the peripheral. there's no word on whether or not members of the larger public preview will get an early peek at these features, but you can...

It looks like Xbox Live preview program participants may be testing out more than a new disc format after all. According to an Xbox Live profile allegedly belonging to one of the beta program administrators, both Avatar Kinect and Hulu Plus features are being tested. Both applications can be seen on the profile, though links to their respective Xbox.com listings appear to be broken for the time being. (more)

Remedy: LA Noire raises the bar for facial animation

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2325 days, 21 hours, 41 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 12, 2011 7:20:08 AM GMT
When we first saw the facial-mapping in LA Noire, we must admit we were taken aback. The level of realism is something amazing to behold, as we've said in the past, but we're not the only ones impressed. Edge toured Remedy Entertainment recently, sampling some of the developer's new motion-capture tech for it's next game, and the studio is apparently quite enamored with what they've seen in LA Noire.

Tuesday, April 12, 2011 7:11:57 AM GMT
If you signed up the Xbox 360 preview program it's time to start camping out by your mailbox and pestering your delivery person -- the update discs are shipping. A few lucky gamers now have their sneak peak at the next Xbox Live update and free copy of Halo: Reach in hand, and one was kind enough to send us the shot above to prove it. The disc bears a serious warning though: do not try and install it on a non-preview approved system. (more)

The gaming industry is, with astonishing regularity, a total circus sideshow of inexplicable oddities -- but we're confident that nothing has approached the levels of bizarritude contained within this here post. According to IGN, Child of Eden creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi announced at the Kapow! Comic Con that developer Q Entertainment has whipped up a unique peripheral for the Kinect shooter: A corset which holds four 360 controllers at one time, all of which individually vibrate to the beat of Eden's music.

NBA Jam: On Fire Edition drives to PSN, XBLA this October | Joystiq

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2331 days, 20 hours, 46 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 06, 2011 8:14:45 AM GMT
EA Sports is working on a follow-up to last year's reboot of NBA Jam, but this one's going download-only. NBA Jam: On Fire Edition is set to take the court in October for both PS3 and Xbox Live (no Wii release announced) and will arrive via PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade, respectively. It's worth noting that last year's game was a full $50 retail release, but a stripped-down version was originally planned as a downloadable title free to those who purchased new copies of the ill-fated NBA Elite 11.
