Dead Space 2 trailer literalized by Tobuscus

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2284 days, 12 hours, 22 minutes ago
Thursday, January 27, 2011 9:06:18 AM GMT
Toby "Tobuscus" Turner's literal adaptations of trailers are both hilarious and impressive. His latest effort is no different: a Dead Space 2 TV ad combining his parodying skills with the ad's song, Smashing Pumpkins' 1995 hit, "Bullet with Butterfly Wings." (more)

Thursday, January 27, 2011 9:06:17 AM GMT
Yes, someone has decided to turn Wii Tennis into a real theatrical production. Ars Nova, a theater "committed to ... support[ing] outside-the-box thinking," will present a series of plays -- The Wii Plays -- each named after a title in Nintendo's motion controlled library. There are some familiar names here, including Marvel Superhero Squad and Tomb Raider: Anniversary, as well as some especially odd choices. Let's Tap? Bob the Builder: Festival of Fun? Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games? Really? (more)

XCM's F-1 Converter lets XBox 360 players get behind G25, G27 racing wheels (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2284 days, 13 hours ago
Thursday, January 27, 2011 8:29:02 AM GMT
We've never been shy about our affection for Logitech's G25 and G27 steering wheels, and now we can share our love with our friends of the Xbox 360 persuasion. With the brand new F-1 converter from XCM, die hard Xbox 360 and Xbox 360 Slim fans can get behind the same wheels we've been behind since 2006. If that wasn't reward enough, the F-1 also sports a built-in combo-attack memory function for fighting games, and rumble support is baked in for good measure. So go ahead, ye of the XBox 360 ilk, plug her... (more)

Sony just dropped a bomb on the Japanese stage -- not a single PlayStation Phone, but a PlayStation Phone experience for everybody. The company unveiled a cross-platform software framework called PlayStation Suite, which sounds rather boring in those words, but what it amounts to is an official PlayStation Store filled with games for your Android tablets and cellphones.

Thursday, January 27, 2011 8:26:42 AM GMT
Oh yes. After all the unbearable teasing since we unveiled the first ever photos of the PlayStation Phone, we've finally managed to get hold of the real deal for an in-depth preview. Honestly, we couldn't wait any longer with this thing floating around in China; we'd otherwise have to wait until MWC, where we expect the phone to be launched as the "Xperia Play" (and we shall refer to this name henceforth). Before you pop the cork for us, do bear in mind that what we're seeing here is subject to changes, ... (more)

Review: Dead Space 2 Is Insanely Terrifying, Crazy Good

Wednesday, January 26, 2011 9:28:27 AM GMT
Dead Space 2 now has me thinking video games may not be a healthy pursuit after all. Despite playing through the original Dead Space twice, my heart was not as well-conditioned to its horrors as I originally thought. (more)

Jimpressions: Crysis 2 multiplayer demo

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2285 days, 12 hours, 4 minutes ago
Wednesday, January 26, 2011 9:24:45 AM GMT
Crysis 2's multiplayer demo is being slated up and down the Internet, and while I don't think it's quite as awful as some people have been saying, I can't say it's grabbed my attention. It's not a bad multiplayer, but so far it feels like a sci-fi version of Call of Duty, but with poor level design (let's give them a super jump and put pitfalls right by spawn points!) and loose spray n' pray combat in which people just run around each other and hope the other falls down.

Black Ops PS3 patch fixes freezing errors, adds new Contracts

If you're a PS3 player troubled by Call of Duty: Black Ops bugs, take heart in the fact that Treyarch is listening to you. Particularly those of you troubled enough to submit a complaint to the government, we're guessing. Last night, the developer issued a new patch for Black Ops, fixing various freezing, "infinite loading screen," and other issues. (more)

Ridge Racer 3D preview: A more 'intimate' rehash

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2285 days, 12 hours, 10 minutes ago
Wednesday, January 26, 2011 9:18:35 AM GMT
The Ridge Racer franchise has an odd knack for coinciding with platform launches. From the PS1 classic to the most recent Ridge Racer 7, capitalizing on the enthusiasm inherent with new hardware seems to be the series' bread and butter. It's clear why Namco chooses this strategy: it manages to obfuscate the franchise's lack of innovation with the technological advance each generational leap brings. (more)

Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars for 3DS detailed by creative lead

Wednesday, January 26, 2011 8:56:14 AM GMT
As TinyCartridge pointed out in a pair of recent posts about Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars, the seemingly high profile 3DS title has been barely discussed by publisher Ubisoft. Beyond gathering together all of the game's assets thus far (seen here), TinyCartridge fleshes out GRSW's tactical, turn-based gameplay. Better yet: The game's creative lead, Julian Gollop (more)
