Alan Wake on PC: Launch, tech features detailed

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1912 days, 11 hours, 8 minutes ago
Friday, February 03, 2012 10:16:48 AM GMT
What you'll get with this PC version is high-res graphics and support for both multiscreen and 3D support. Now's your chance to see Alan Wake at every setting maxed. There's graphic support for lots of resolutions and ratios, and a multithreaded engine lets you make use of your fancy-ass quad core CPUs. Both Nvidia's stereoscopic 3D and AMD Eyefinity 3D are supported. Finally, there's new options to hide the hud and/or adjust the field of view. (more)

Nintendo DLC: Sakura Samurai, Undead Storm, more

Friday, February 03, 2012 10:14:35 AM GMT
The eShop is keeping up its momentum with another very promising game, Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword ($6.99). You might know it by a slightly different name, but it should look familiar. I'll be blind buying it the second I can break away from Zen Pinball 3D. (more)

Take-Two Q3 financials down year-over-year, still within predictions

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1912 days, 11 hours, 14 minutes ago
Friday, February 03, 2012 10:11:04 AM GMT
Take-Two Interactive has released its financial figures for the third quarter of fiscal 2012, which ended on December 31, 2011. While "in line" with the publisher's predictions, results are down when compared year-over-year to the same period in fiscal 2011 (more)

Snag this crazy iOS peripheral, get free ride in a police car

Friday, February 03, 2012 10:10:22 AM GMT
This happens to us every time: We walk into the cell phone store, search the displays excitedly, and are immediately disappointed by the lack of small firearms for sale. Every time. Mobile games developer Metal Compass is looking to change this depressing experience with the Xappr, a gun-shaped smartphone peripheral for a selection of augmented-reality and shooting apps, including AR Invaders and Spray'Em. Xappr is compatible with iOS, Android and Windows devices, although no Windows games are available ... (more)

The Rhythm Of The Quest in Fallout 3 and New Vegas

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1912 days, 11 hours, 15 minutes ago
Friday, February 03, 2012 10:09:42 AM GMT
Have you ever been horribly frustrated by one part of a game, only to think of it as the best and most memorable section of that game in retrospect? It's the ruins of D.C. for me. I played Fallout 3 on the PC a year or so after release, so the first thing I did was load up on mods, introducing different play balance, graphics, more weapons, and most motivating of all, more music for Galaxy News Radio. But at the start of the game, GNR is in trouble and the station's signal is weak. So I went to fix it as... (more)

Mass Effect 3 'Mission Command' Facebook app offers in-game goodies

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1912 days, 11 hours, 17 minutes ago
Friday, February 03, 2012 10:08:36 AM GMT
Microsoft has launched a Facebook app called Mass Effect 3 Mission Command, that both serves as promotion for the upcoming Mass Effect 3, and an opportunity to get some in-game items. You "log in" to Mission Command (which grants EA access to your Facebook account and email), and then you have to fulfill missions like recruiting your friends, posting pickup lines for Liara, downloading the demo, or sharing movies of you pretending to be in the game.

Spaceflight start-up, SpaceX, has been demonstrating the potency of its SuperDraco rockets, testing at its own facility over in Texas. The rockets will help land its Dragon spacecraft -- as demonstrated in a swish animation last year. They will also power emergency escape functions, something that will, according to founder Elon Musk, make the Dragon (more)

AT&T connected Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S get Android Market Google Wallet installs

So far, Google Wallet has its official US availability on NFC-compatible handsets limited by unfriendly carriers with their own mobile payment services in mind, but it appears that is no longer the case for Nexus handsets with AT&T SIMs inserted. Droid-Life reported the app is available in the market for AT&T-SIM'd HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus phones, which we were able to confirm on our own device (over any connection, as long as the AT&T card is in, switching back to a T-Mobile SIM made it disappear ...

Avid Studio rolls onto iPad, treads on iMovie's toes (video)

There may be a number of options for budding iPad Scorseses, now you can add Avid's "Studio" to that list. Conveniently launching at the same price as iMovie, Avid's intention to woo Apple's users is clear. Those five bucks get you a tidy storyboard solution, "precision" editing, the usual array of transitions and effects, plus multi-channel audio support (including access to your iTunes library). Video can be shot from the device itself, of course (more)

Nikon posts Q3 2011 earnings, sees significant losses due to Thailand floods

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1912 days, 11 hours, 23 minutes ago
Friday, February 03, 2012 10:02:01 AM GMT
Nikon posted its Q3 earnings report this morning, and there isn't a whole lot to smile about. The cameramaker had to swallow a one-off loss of ¥10.9 billion last quarter (approximately $143.1 million), due to widespread flooding that devastated its Thailand manufacturing plant, in October. Today's report comes just a day after Sony issued similarly dire figures, which it largely attributed to last year's flooding, as well. For the third quarter ended December 31st, (more)

Motorola wins permanent injunction against Apple's iCloud in German court

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1912 days, 11 hours, 24 minutes ago
Friday, February 03, 2012 10:01:31 AM GMT
There's another legal brouhaha brewing in Germany, where Motorola today won an injunction against Apple's iCloud. In a decision handed down from the infamous Mannheim Regional Court this morning, Judge Andreas Voss issued a permanent injunction against Cupertino's cloud-based service and any devices that use it, following a complaint that Motorola originally filed in April of last year. The two companies, as you may recall, have been going at each other rather aggressively in Germany, where Motorola scor... (more)

Google Fined $660,000 For Making Google Maps Free

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1912 days, 11 hours, 27 minutes ago
Friday, February 03, 2012 9:57:58 AM GMT
A recent ruling in a French commercial court may see Google put into much larger legal bind globally thanks to the "anti-competitive" nature of Google Maps. Why? Because Google was offering a service that one French company provided for free, thus the latter cried "anti-competitive" to the French court system. (more)

Microsoft Officially Revealing Halo 4 This Month

Friday, February 03, 2012 9:56:25 AM GMT
Typically we don't cover console games, but the Halo franchise is an exception. Most of us have played -- and still own -- at least one of the seven titles released over the course of eleven years, maybe even the original Halo on PC (just admit to having an Xbox, it's ok, we understand). That said, many readers may be waiting anxiously for Halo 4, Microsoft's first full-fledged venture into the Halo universe without holding Bungie's hand. (more)

DRM Blues: Ubisoft PC Titles Rendered Useless Next Week

Yes, we agree that piracy sucks, unless you're Rovio of course who opens their arms wide to naughty "fans". But for the legitimate customer who must pay the price for the thievery of others, DRM sucks even more, especially when it's embedded in our systems or gives publishers the power to disable our favorite titles with a flick of a switch.

Madden NFL 12 says Giants will be Super Bowl XLVI champs

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1915 days, 13 hours, 18 minutes ago
Tuesday, January 31, 2012 8:07:22 AM GMT
When it comes to Super Bowl soothsaying, EA Sports' Madden NFL games almost have it down to a science. The sports sim has correctly predicted the winner of six of the last eight Super Bowls; the first time it was wrong was back in 2008, when the New York Giants shocked the New England Patriots, 17-14, preventing them from achieving a perfect 19-0 season.

Though the inclusion of an online pass in a game with Electronic Arts' name attached to it does not come as a shock, word that SSX will follow the trend got the usual people riled up. I was prepared to perform the obligatory shrug and go about my day, but the specifics of what content is restricted interests me. (more)
