posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1844 days, 22 hours, 36 minutes ago
Sunday, March 04, 2012 7:40:19 AM GMT
Early in February, Apple shares surged to an all-time high. Passing the $490 mark, this jump meant Apple was now worth more than Google and Microsoft combined. Since then, shares have continued to creep upwards and, with the iPad 3 (more)

Windows 8 May Have Longer List of SKUs After All

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1844 days, 22 hours, 38 minutes ago
Sunday, March 04, 2012 7:38:42 AM GMT
Earlier this week, we reported that Windows 8 may have fewer SKUs than Windows Vista and Windows 7. The evidence was discovered within revision notes for the Alcor Micro Smart Card Reader Driver located on HP's website, listing a mere three Windows 8 "client" SKUs (or six if you count the 32-bit and 64-bit versions separately).

Review: Wargame: European Escalation

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1846 days, 21 hours, 7 minutes ago
Friday, March 02, 2012 9:09:39 AM GMT
Growing up during the dawn of PC strategy games, playing everything from Dune II and Command & Conquer to Panzer General, took its toll on my teenage years. History classes only became worth paying attention to when it concerned old battles and famous generals, and I even had a period where I was convinced I was destined to become a battlefield commander when I grew up.

Over the past couple years, film directors such as Mike Cahill and Duncan Jones have offered a much softer take on the sci-fi genre, one where science, man's relationship with nature, and personal tragedy trump gun fights and epic alien warfare. (more)

Review: Journey

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1846 days, 21 hours, 8 minutes ago
Friday, March 02, 2012 9:08:10 AM GMT
How does one describe Journey, exactly? It's a videogame unlike any other, to the point where calling it a videogame doesn't quite feel right. One could call it an art game, but that would draw comparisons with infinitely less distinguished pieces of software. Whatever label you want to affix to thatgamecompany's latest creation, there's one description that absolutely everybody should be able to agree on. (more)

An employee of Best Buy sent Kotaku this artwork for Assassin's Creed III, which suggests that we'll be playing as a Native American character come this October. And, going a step further, that this game will at least partially revolve around the American Revolution. (more)

Zynga breaking away from Facebook dependency with 'Zynga Platform'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1846 days, 21 hours, 13 minutes ago
Friday, March 02, 2012 9:03:39 AM GMT
Zynga is, evidently, aware how crazy and risky it sounds to tie your entire multimillion-dollar business to a single other company (like, say, Facebook). And so it is diversifying, announcing its own Zynga Platform, a Zynga-run portal for the company's social games, like CastleVille, Words with Friends, and ... you know, Zynga stuff. (more)

All right guys, here's the plan: You see that game over there, Payday: The Heist? Well we're gonna boost it. First, we have to get past the 18 layers of invisible infrared lasers that line the hallway leading to the safe room.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview hits one million downloads in a day

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1846 days, 21 hours, 22 minutes ago
Friday, March 02, 2012 8:54:11 AM GMT
How pumped are consumers about the release of a Windows 8 preview that they can call their own? Quite, according the million downloads the build has marked in just a day. That number comes from Microsoft's Building Windows Twitter account -- of course, it's important to note that the number doesn't necessarily mean one million individuals downloaded Consumer Preview. Still, not bad for a day's work. (more)

NSA builds own model of Android phone, wants you to do the same

Friday, March 02, 2012 8:52:43 AM GMT
The NSA decided it wanted to have its own go at producing a secure Android smartphone that could encrypt communications to levels necessary for national security. Project "Fishbowl" constructed 100 handsets from off-the-shelf components that were secure enough that staffers could use them without speaking in code. All conversations are conducted across an IPsec (more)

This Week in Facebook: Offers, Ads and Timeline for Pages

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1846 days, 21 hours, 25 minutes ago
Friday, March 02, 2012 8:51:32 AM GMT
Facebook's gently unveiled a raft of changes to its policies to boost advertising on the social network. It unveiled Timeline for pages, meaning that companies can now start uploading baby pictures and changing the cover photo every day. While adverts have been traditionally restricted to the right-rail of the site, now they'll be jammed in at will -- including in your mobile app (which the company conceded it wasn't "monetizing"), timeline and log in / out pages.

Friday, March 02, 2012 8:15:11 AM GMT
Talk about classic PC gaming! Baldur's Gate was nothing but pure RPG goodness Forgotten Realms-style when the series crashed the PC gaming scene back in 1998. It, along with Blizzard's original Diablo, kept many a player engaged long after their eyes began to get blurry and their legs grow numb. (more)
