Hey, do you all remember the Lord of the Rings film trilogy? Remember how much you loved -- err, still love them? This trailer for War in the North certainly hopes you do; it focuses largely on how the new, Snowblind-developed title ties into the films. (more)

Turtle Beach Xbox Chat Adapter gets the hands-on treatment, admirably untethers talkative gamers

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2175 days, 8 hours, 7 minutes ago
Saturday, July 09, 2011 12:20:51 PM GMT
Back at E3, Turtle Beach unveiled its wire-ridding Xbox 360 Bluetooth Chat Adapter bundled with its XP500 headset (a re-badged PX5), but there were no accounts of how the dongle performed. That's now changed thanks to Joystiq, who've gotten their lucky mitts on one of ten prototypes. Spoiler: they're really enjoying the little guy. Voice quality was reported as being "excellent" and the device easily paired with headsets. (more)

Kinect hack promises you'll wear flowery skirts, and you'll like it (video)

Saturday, July 09, 2011 12:20:12 PM GMT
Don't be shy now: which of you doesn't love raiding your mother's closet and trying on her paisley dresses and velour tracksuits? That's more or less the idea behind Virtual Dressing Room, a Kinect hack that taps into the clandestine thrill of sneaking into other people's boudoirs. Unlike some other shopping hacks we've seen, the app goes beyond just pilling on 2D pieces, but uses 3D models so that the items mold to your limbs, with the shadows and creases in the virtual fabric changing as you preen for ...

Ok, So Maybe Nintendo is ''Investigating'' Phones

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2175 days, 8 hours, 8 minutes ago
Saturday, July 09, 2011 12:19:28 PM GMT
Nintendo is apparently playing mind games with consumers. Just days ago, news surfaced that a Pokémon game was heading to the iOS and Android platforms this summer. Nintendo only owns 32-percent of the Pokémon franchise, meaning that The Pokémon Company / Game Freak has the right to bring its pocket monsters to any platform it chooses. But given that Pokémon titles usually reside on Nintendo platforms. (more)

This Electric Vehicle Was Inspired by a Bird's Nest

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2175 days, 8 hours, 9 minutes ago
Saturday, July 09, 2011 12:18:53 PM GMT
Although it probably wouldn't be the first thing to come to mind when thinking for car design inspirations, a bird's nest actually incorporates a lot of elements we look for in the design of a car. Drawing inspiration from the home-like, protective natural structure of a bird's nest, the Citroen Metronest is definitely an interesting concept car. Designed by Hong-ik University's Sangmin Lee, the Metronest features an aerodynamic, ultra light-weight design. (more)

Carmack: Mobile Tech Surpassing Console in 2yrs

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2175 days, 8 hours, 9 minutes ago
Saturday, July 09, 2011 12:18:14 PM GMT
In a recent interview with id Software's John Carmack, IndustryGamers asked if mobile will eventually overtake traditional console gaming. He admitted that it's one of the hottest topics they frequently discuss internally, but he also pointed out that Apple's iOS and iPhone weren't even around when the group began work on its current FPS, RAGE. That in itself is a little disturbing to a developer which typically takes years and years to conjure up a single title. (more)

VEA Smartphone Watch Perfect For Your Workout

Saturday, July 09, 2011 12:17:23 PM GMT
One benefit of hitting the machines in the gym is the detailed information regarding your workout. Most modern treadmills and similar equipment allow users to keep track of some essential stats such as distance traveled, calories burnt and heart rate. Unfortunately for those that enjoy their natural surroundings on a jog, these stats aren't so easy to come by without some sort of gadget. (more)

Thursday, July 07, 2011 10:24:19 AM GMT
While many developers are quite happy to keep this generation going, at least one company has a pair of itchy feet. Ubisoft is apparently ready to usher in a new era of consoles, after declaring that it feels "limited" by the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, especially in terms of non-player character behavior. (more)

DICE isn't making any modding tools for Battlefield 3

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2177 days, 10 hours, 4 minutes ago
Thursday, July 07, 2011 10:23:50 AM GMT
In an interview with GameStar, Electronic Arts senior VP Patrick Söderlund revealed that there aren't any plans to put out modding tools for Battlefield 3. Not entirely the stance I would've expected them to take. The reason? "If you look at the Frostbite engine, and how complex it is, it's going to be very difficult for people to mod the game, because of the nature of the set up of levels, of the destruction and all those things ... it's quite tricky. So we think it's going to be too big of a challenge... (more)

You'll never geth how this Mass Effect action figure was made

Thursday, July 07, 2011 10:22:47 AM GMT
Go on, take a guess at the starting point for this custom made figure. If we tell you that the link came from Halo.Bungie.Org, does that help? If you guessed a Covenant Elite, you're right! The core body of this Mass Effect inspired geth consists of two different Convenant Elite figures from McFarlane's Halo line. (more)
