Well, this is awkward. PC players unlocked the "Operation Hastings" map in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam recently by performing a combined 69 million team actions. Console players, on the other hand, aren't quite there yet. (more)

If you boot up Mass Effect 2 right now, you'll see a noteworthy message from the Cerberus Daily News on the main menu. (You know, the thing with scrolling text on the right of your screen. That!) (more)

Dead Space save file unlocks original plasma cutter in Dead Space 2

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2272 days, 14 hours, 2 minutes ago
Monday, January 03, 2011 9:46:39 AM GMT
Here's a nice bonus for fans of the original Dead Space. If you have any save file -- completed or not -- from the first title, you'll unlock the original plasma cutter right off the bat for use in the upcoming sequel. Hardcore players should be more than familiar with the gun, thanks to an Achievement that forces players to complete an entire playthrough using only that gun. (more)

'Gears of War Ultimate' coming in February for $30, retail listing says

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2272 days, 14 hours, 4 minutes ago
Monday, January 03, 2011 9:45:32 AM GMT
The Gears of War franchise is no stranger to re-releases, having "Platinum" and "Game of the Year" collections across its two titles so far. However, it appears Microsoft is planning one more re-release, tentatively titled Gears of War Ultimate, according to a GameStop listing spotted by IGN. Pegged with a February 15th date, Ultimate has a $29.99 price tag. (more)

Bad Company 2's Operation Hastings map unlocked for PS3 and Xbox 360 players

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2272 days, 14 hours, 4 minutes ago
Monday, January 03, 2011 9:45:31 AM GMT
Although PS3 and Xbox 360 players didn't quite measure up to the challenge, DICE has unlocked the final map of the Battlefield Vietnam expansion, Operation Hastings, for everyone. PC players were able to get up to the requisite 69 million team actions in a matter of days, far outpacing console players (with 34 and 46 million actions, respectively). The sudden change of plans is apparently to "start this new year with a big of a bang as we ended it." (more)

Nicalis' NightSky coming to Windows on January 6

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2272 days, 14 hours, 5 minutes ago
Monday, January 03, 2011 9:44:26 AM GMT
Nicalis, best known for releasing Daisuke Amaya's Cave Story on the Wii and DSi, has announced that it will be bringing the 2D physics-based platformer NightSky to Windows on January 6. The title, by Sweden's Nifflas, was originally scheduled for release on WiiWare as well. Nicalis says it hasn't "given up on consoles" for the game, but the PC and Mac releases will arrive first.

Tool-assisted speedrun shows Super Mario 64 beaten in five minutes

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2272 days, 14 hours, 6 minutes ago
Monday, January 03, 2011 9:43:19 AM GMT
A group of five speedrunners has beaten Super Mario 64 with no stars in just five minutes. To do so, they used a whole bag of tricks, including glitches, weird jumping macros, and shortcuts. It's not pretty, but if you have 18274 frames of time to spare, you can see the whole video below. (more)

Review: Back to the Future: The Game, Episode 1

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2277 days, 14 hours, 45 minutes ago
Wednesday, December 29, 2010 9:04:27 AM GMT
If I were the owner of a beloved franchise of films and wanted to expand that franchise into videogames, there are very few companies whom I would trust to do a license justice. And if comedy is a major component of the formula that makes fans of my properties, the list narrows to just one: Telltale Games. That's because Telltale seems to care about the licenses for which they publish games beyond the scope of their own titles and, for my money, there's nobody funnier in the industry right now. (more)

Get your free shiny Pokemon next month at GameStop

A lot of people think that Nintendo is lagging (pun intended) when it comes to their online strategy, though you'd never know it based on how well their consoles sell. When it comes to free DLC though, I think they're slightly ahead of the curve. For instance, the steady release of free DLC in Mario Kart Wii, Animal Crossing: City Folk, and the Pokemon games on the DS has kept a small, internal smile on my face for over a year now. (more)

There's a warning for the Nintendo 3DS that cautions that children under the age of six may be affected by the system's 3D display. On a Japanese information page at Nintendo, they recommend that children six and under not use the 3DS' 3D effects in their general safety warnings. (more)

Take a good, long look at the first Uncharted 3 gameplay footage

Wednesday, December 29, 2010 8:35:15 AM GMT
Sony has released a pair of Uncharted 3 gameplay videos, comprising most of what we saw at a recent press event (and what Fallon stumbled through on Late Night). Seen after the break, Drake and Sully have found their way to an overgrown French chateau on the path of T.E. Laurence. As they find what they came for, a group of thugs from a mysterious cult -- hint: the bad guys! -- shows up to burn the place down ... with our heroes inside. (more)

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam review: Enjoyable quagmire

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2277 days, 15 hours, 15 minutes ago
Wednesday, December 29, 2010 8:34:09 AM GMT
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam occupies a very strange place. It's a great addition to the Battlefield franchise, no doubt, but whether it was originally intended as a standalone game à la Battlefield 1943, or as an "expansion" to Battlefield Bad Company 2, is a question that lingers. Of course, it's hard to focus on such questions while you barbecue the enemy with a flamethrower. (more)

Our friends in Japan often have ... peculiar tastes when it comes to their gaming passions. Specifically, they are taught from a young age to despise any game in which they don't capture monsters. Fact: The nation's most popular T-shirt actually reads, "I'd rather capture a monster than my next breath of oxygen." It's true! (more)

Santa's got his heart in the right place, but c'mon, the guy can't do everything. He knows you wanted Fighters Uncaged (it was, in fact, the reason you were on the naughty list), but he just didn't have room in the sleigh this year. Luckily, Amazon is there to help you finish the job that Santa couldn't with a "Buy One, Get One 1/2 Off" offer on over 600 games. (more)

It's not difficult to turn a game into a tasteful film. Case in point: The Duke: Fate of Humanity, a potent, made-in-a-day homage to our favorite guy with the shot-up ride. It has it all: a stripper, an alien invasion, cigars and a transfer of funds from Duke to said lady of the pole. (more)

Do you need to re-energize the power cores of your Wii Remotes in the raddest, most attitude-fueled way imaginable? The latest product from Mad Catz (PDF) is right up your alley: It's a Wiimote induction charger featuring Sonic the Hedgehog. At $49.99, it's probably not the most cost efficient way to refuel your gaming peripherals, but it is the ... um, bluest. (more)

We've seen Wii laptops before (heck, we taught you how to make one!) but do any of them have an internal rechargeable battery? How about GameCube ports? Could they fit inside a shirt pocket? Thought not. Modder ShockSlayer's custom "ZNWii" laptop is one of -- if not the best we've seen yet. (more)

Interestingly, both graphics parts are based off of the same Cayman core. We're not talking about just the same underlying technology , but apparently the cores are the same in both graphics parts. The only difference is the software that's flashed on the BIOS. (more)

Free Kinect keyboard emulator lets you WoW while AFK (video)

Wednesday, December 29, 2010 8:07:18 AM GMT
World of Warcraft is a lot of things to a lot of people, a whole lot of people, but it's never been much of an immersive gameplay experience -- casting Plague Strike doesn't seem all that unholy when it's triggered by frantically tapping a key on a keyboard. Moving an arm would be at least a bit more involving, and with the Flexible Action and Articulated Toolkit, or FAAST, from the USC Institute for Creative Technologies, that's just what you can do.
