Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing hits iOS today

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2197 days, 8 hours, 19 minutes ago
Friday, June 24, 2011 7:25:46 AM GMT
It's Sonic's 20th birthday, and SEGA is celebrating how all publishers celebrate anniversaries -- by raking in some damn Benjamins! Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing is hitting iOS devices today, bringing the paradoxical madness of Sonic driving a car to iPhone users around the world. This game has been ported to almost every current system in the world, which means we'll probably see it on NES and the Master System next. (more)

Friday, June 24, 2011 7:24:06 AM GMT
Darkworks will be known to those who played Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare and checked the box to see who to blame. The studio's also working on Ubisoft's I Am Alive, which appears to be filling in the vaporware gap left behind by Duke Nukem Forever. (more)

Next for Team Fortress 2: Free-to-play status

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2197 days, 8 hours, 22 minutes ago
Friday, June 24, 2011 7:23:11 AM GMT
For the Über Update festivities, Valve set up Team Fortress 2 with week-long free status. I thought this was a smart idea, but not entirely unexpected, since Valve has a history of pulling such stunts. Making the full game free, forever? Yeah, that's a bit more ballsy -- and it's apparently what the company is doing. (more)

Street Fighter HeroClix in the worx

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2197 days, 8 hours, 22 minutes ago
Friday, June 24, 2011 7:22:30 AM GMT
We are almost certainly too old to love HeroClix as much as we do. For us, the miniature action figures/strategy game pieces aren't a fondly remembered childhood pastime but rather a secret, shameful army in a single Ziploc freezer bag that we prayed our loved ones would never find. (more)

BioWare's Neverwinter Nights forums hacked, EA Account information at risk

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2197 days, 8 hours, 23 minutes ago
Friday, June 24, 2011 7:22:07 AM GMT
And here we thought we'd get through a whole day without a hacking story. BioWare Edmonton Studio GM Aaryn Flynn sent out an email tonight alerting users of its "decade-old BioWare server system supporting the Neverwinter Nights forums." As with the Sega Pass hack, BioWare asserts that there is no danger of loss of credit card data, but other information -- like "user names, encrypted passwords, (more)

Rift Developer: WoW's Current State is ''Samey''

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2197 days, 8 hours, 25 minutes ago
Friday, June 24, 2011 7:20:19 AM GMT
Trion Worlds' Will Cook said that the studio wanted to take credit for the decline in World of Warcraft subscriptions over the last few months, as its own popular fantasy-based MMORPG Rift is getting ready to reach its 1-million-unit-sold milestone. But eventually he admitted that users are probably just tired of the same gamplay, and that Cataclysm didn't do enough to revitalize the social raiding and level grinding. (more)

Chinese UNISROBO KIRFbot is a not-so-cheap knockoff of NEC's PaPeRo

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2197 days, 8 hours, 29 minutes ago
Friday, June 24, 2011 7:15:36 AM GMT
The KIRFs we normally see are of the cellphone and PMP variety, with the occasional laptop scattered here and there. In fact, this might be the first time we've seen a clone of a serious robot, and not just some remote-controlled toy. Above is the UNISROBO from a pair of Chinese companies, UNIS and Just Good Technology. Those of you with a strong memory may immediately notice its amazing resemblance to NEC's PaPeRo and PaPeRo-mini. (more)

Card.io SDK takes swipe at competition with camera-enabled mobile payments (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2197 days, 8 hours, 30 minutes ago
Friday, June 24, 2011 7:15:09 AM GMT
In an attempt to edge its way into the crowded mobile payments market, a new credit card scanning system is saying "ah, hell no!" to typing and swiping. Card.io is billed as an SDK that takes advantage of smartphone cameras to let devs accept credit, because, as its creators point out, "typing on mobile phones is slow, and most consumers don't have a separate hardware attachment.

Navy blends Jet A and algae-based biofuel, uses it to power Seahawk chopper (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2197 days, 8 hours, 30 minutes ago
Friday, June 24, 2011 7:14:39 AM GMT
Considering that helicopters are entirely dependent on a spinning rotor to remain in the air, an MH-60S Seahawk doesn't exactly seem the most likely candidate for experimental fuel. That didn't seem to stop the US Navy, however, which successfully completed a test flight with a 50 / 50 blend of algae-based biofuel and Jet A (traditionally the flavor of choice for turbine-based aircraft).

Atrix 4G bootloader unlocked! You can hack it up today or wait for official Gingerbread update

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2197 days, 8 hours, 31 minutes ago
Friday, June 24, 2011 7:14:13 AM GMT
The Atrix 4G is today an eminently more intriguing smartphone than it was yesterday. Leaked code from Motorola's upcoming Gingerbread update for the handset has made its way into the hands of the always-eager coders at xda-developers, which has resulted in two things: one, the discovery that Motorola intends to unlock the Atrix's bootloader when it upgrades it to Android 2.3, and two, downloadable files to let you do exactly that today, even if you're still stuck on Froyo.

According to Andriasang, Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada was asked why they would release Dragon Quest X on the Wii when the Wii U is already on the horizon. Wada responded that Square Enix must consider making the game compatible with both the Wii and the Wii U. Of course, that's not quite confirmation of a Wii U DQX, but it at least gives some hope.
