Thursday, April 28, 2011 9:30:20 AM GMT
Things are rough along the Mexican border. How does a government clean up such a cesspool of crime and lawlessness? Well, if it's a video game, you hire foul-mouthed men and women to kick down doors and shoot dudes like crazy. Results are results, we guess. (more)

Thursday, April 28, 2011 9:29:44 AM GMT

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2191 days, 22 hours, 53 minutes ago
Thursday, April 28, 2011 9:28:08 AM GMT
One of the only knocks we gave Section 8: Prejudice regarded its matchmaking system. Specifically, our review mentioned the game's lack of a party system and the general difficulty of playing with Xbox Live friends online. Apparently ours wasn't the only complaint, as TimeGate has addressed community feedback with a new title update. (more)

That stretchy, coiled headphone cord might be cool for the club, but sometimes you need to straighten up, fly right, and answer a few phone calls. Enter Pioneer's HDJ-500T-K DJ headphones. These cans are effectively a standard re-issue of the regular HDJ-500 series, but adding a new swappable straight cord with a microphone and answer button. (more)

Sucker Punch extending inFamous 2 beta due to PSN issues

Tuesday, April 26, 2011 7:41:28 AM GMT
To make up for lost time caused by the PlayStation Network outage, developer Sucker Punch Productions will be giving the inFamous 2 user-generated content beta an extension. I mean, why wouldn't they? For now, the studio is waiting on PSN to come back before giving out any definitive word on how long the beta will go for. Again, makes sense. (more)

Tuesday, April 26, 2011 7:39:56 AM GMT
While much has been said about the animation technology used in L.A. Noire, a recent piece from the Los Angeles Times reveals that Rockstar and Team Bondi have expended considerable effort in recreating Los Angeles as it was in 1947.
