Deadly Premonition to hit Games on Demand in Europe also

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2269 days, 23 hours, 9 minutes ago
Wednesday, July 06, 2011 8:54:11 AM GMT
Let's assume, for the moment, that you are European and made the deeply foolish decision not to buy Deadly Premonition when it released on your continent back in October of last year. You have made a terrible, terrible mistake but a new opportunity to redeem yourself has now arisen. In a post to his blog, Deadly Premonition director Swery65 announced that the game is arriving today as a Games on Demand title for European Xbox customers at a price of €19.99. This news follows the recent announcement that ... (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2269 days, 23 hours, 9 minutes ago
Wednesday, July 06, 2011 8:53:36 AM GMT
Those of us living in America, Europe, and pretty much anywhere else in the world have been enjoying the return of the PlayStation Store for the past month, hopefully remembering to snag a few free games in the process. But in Japan, the birthplace of the PS3, the PSN revival hasn't gone beyond offering online gaming due to the government's concern about Sony's weak security. (more)

Wednesday, July 06, 2011 8:52:58 AM GMT
The return of the Tanooki suit has been a big talking point for Super Mario 3DS, but Nintendo has revealed that it won't be the only famous costume to make a return. Mario will get to dress in a few other togs from yesteryear, although we don't yet know which ones. (more)

Final Fantasy VII sackboys in LittleBigPlanet 2 are ugly!

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2269 days, 23 hours, 10 minutes ago
Wednesday, July 06, 2011 8:52:23 AM GMT
Yesterday it was announced that Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet 2 would get some Final Fantasy VII treatments. That sounds like a fun idea until you actually see them. Gah! Aeris/Aerith looks so derpy that I can't look at the above image for too long. That's a face that needs to die and be dropped into the Lifestream! The rest of the team are also pretty goofy looking. Maybe Tifa is pulling it off, but just barely. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2272 days, 12 hours, 11 minutes ago
Sunday, July 03, 2011 7:51:23 PM GMT
It appears an early build of Gears of War 3 has leaked to the Internet, which allegedly includes the full campaign and multiplayer modes and may be an E3 build. After looking around, this turns out to be a developer build or "JTAG" version of the game, which means you need to have a special modified Xbox 360 or a dev kit to run it. (more)

Uncharted was once a bit more like Bioshock

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2272 days, 12 hours, 16 minutes ago
Sunday, July 03, 2011 7:46:55 PM GMT
Evan Wells, the co-president of Naughty Dog, recently revealed that an initial iteration of Uncharted made it so it took place in an underwater facility. The comparison to Bioshock comes from Wells himself, who notes that it's curious that he's heard Ken Levine say that one of the early concepts for Bioshock was a tropical island. (more)

Sunday, July 03, 2011 7:41:15 PM GMT
Square-Enix may have a little more to do with the world of Wakfu than just publishing the French-developed MMORPG that is set for open beta later this fall. During the Anime Expo panel “An Introduction to the World of WAKFU” Square-Enix producer Franko Fonseca mentioned that Wakfu’s cute little chicks called Tofu’s resemblance to Final Fantasy’s avian friends is no accident.

When the Germans do something, they do it right -- or, at least big. German artist Aram Bartholl has created a slew of projects inspired by gaming and the Internet, but his largest is a 1:1 scale model of the classic Counter Strike map, Dust, that Bartholl wants installed as a large-scale public sculpture.

MoviePass gets kicked out of theaters before it can get a ticket

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2272 days, 12 hours, 34 minutes ago
Sunday, July 03, 2011 7:28:59 PM GMT
Here's a bad idea: announce a beta run for your discount subscription movie ticket service, but neglect to inform the 21 San Francisco-based theaters listed that they're part of the fun. That's essentially what Landmark, AMC, Camera Cinemas, and Big Cinemas are claiming MoviePass did earlier this week, and boy has the corn begun to pop. According to The Wrap and Variety, (more)

PlayStation magazine lets you look at Japanese actresses in 'ultra-high' resolution

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2272 days, 12 hours, 36 minutes ago
Sunday, July 03, 2011 7:26:50 PM GMT
What's killing the magazine industry? Could it be the lack of PlayStation compatibility or maybe the absence of "ultra-high" resolution? These are the questions Lucent Pictures Entertainment plans to put to the test with its upcoming iQueen magazine, a publication distributed for the PS3 via the PlayStation Store, offering up images of Japanese actress Masami Nagasawa in a staggering 4,096 by 2,160 resolution -- it's sure to make real life look downright lo-res by comparison.
