The FMA: Brotherhood PS3 theme is pretty neat

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2337 days, 9 hours, 49 minutes ago
Sunday, December 05, 2010 11:41:03 AM GMT
I usually could give a damn about Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 themes, but I'll make an exception for this Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood PSN theme which just came out. I adore the series and the theme is actually cool. The sky gets dark as time goes on and Ed and Al (adult and childform) are slightly animated. (more)

Paid Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 DLC disappearing soon

Sunday, December 05, 2010 11:36:58 AM GMT
One of the major benefits of having digital wares is that retailers never have to worry about running out of shelve space. And yet, every so often you hear a story about how some game has been delisted, or in this case, some downloadable content for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. (more)

FlatOut Wii is out, here is a stunt trailer

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2337 days, 9 hours, 56 minutes ago
Sunday, December 05, 2010 11:33:52 AM GMT
A while back I was surprised to tell you that a new FlatOut game was coming out for the Wii. It looked pretty decent and I said as much. Then I promptly forgot about it as I'm sure all 19 of you that actually read the post did as well. Well, it.. uhhh.. came out a few days ago evidently. According to Amazon its only $19.99, which puts it firmly in the budget title bin on launch day. An impressive feat. (more)

PlayStation Phone reportedly caught on (very clear) video

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2337 days, 9 hours, 57 minutes ago
Sunday, December 05, 2010 11:32:47 AM GMT
Well, lookie what our amigos at Engadget have stumbled upon: a purported video of the Sony Ericsson ZEUS-Z1 "PlayStation Phone" being handled by a YouTube user by the alias of "xxmajstor." Whoever they are, they show the very PSP Go-esque phone off for upwards of two minutes, sliding it open to reveal the previously reported on game controls, including the "touch strip" that evidently sits in for dual analog sticks.

Michael Jackson: The Experience DS pirates treated to 'Billie JeaoooOOONNNHHHH'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2337 days, 9 hours, 57 minutes ago
Sunday, December 05, 2010 11:32:45 AM GMT
We haven't heard much about the actual quality of Michael Jackson: The Experience's DS iteration, but its anti-piracy measures are absolutely top-notch. Pirates who have downloaded ROMs of the game -- for ... some reason -- have reported that two major problems have found their way into the illicit version of the game: Many of the game's touchscreen controls are rendered non-functional, and also, oh yeah, a vuvuzela just happens to be blaring over all the songs.

World disappoints us once again: Japan loses 2022 3D holographic World Cup bid

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2337 days, 10 hours, 3 minutes ago
Sunday, December 05, 2010 11:26:40 AM GMT
Look, we don't know anything about World Cup bids. They probably have a lot to do with "infrastructure" and "taking turns" and stuff like that. But really, world? You couldn't pick Japan just this once? Japan's incredibly great 2022 World Cup bid involved projecting 3D holograms of the games live onto soccer football fields around the world, allowing folks that can't make it to Japan (more)

Sony Bravia KDL-22PX300 LCD makes room for a PS2, your classic game collection

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2337 days, 10 hours, 5 minutes ago
Sunday, December 05, 2010 11:24:39 AM GMT
Sure, the PS3 is what's hip and happening for Sony game fans, but unless you picked up one of the first generation (chubby) units you have questionable support for the greatest generation of games: those that released for the PS2. But, don't fret noble gamer, and don't lament about trading that console in for $15 store credit a few years back. Just buy a new TV! Sony's KDL-22PX300 LCD has a rather hunky base that conceals a fully working PlayStation 2. (more)

Valve launches Team Fortress 2 beta program

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2337 days, 10 hours, 6 minutes ago
Sunday, December 05, 2010 11:23:38 AM GMT
Team Fortress 2 is ever-evolving and a new initiative from Valve hopes to make this rampant evolution a bit safer for all players through the Team Fortress 2 public beta. Accessible to all owners of the game on Steam (open your Library then install "Team Fortress 2 Beta" from your games list), it's a special version of the game that lets Valve tinker around with game mechanics while you test 'em out live. Think: scientist and guinea pig. You're the guinea pig. (more)

Sony representative says no 3D support for LittleBigPlanet 2

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2337 days, 10 hours, 7 minutes ago
Sunday, December 05, 2010 11:22:38 AM GMT
Sony and Media Molecule have remained relatively tight-lipped on whether their even-more-customizable platformer, LittleBigPlanet 2, would feature the kind of 3D support that's quickly becoming a mainstay for major PS3 releases. Though we've heard a few reports to the contrary from Sony in the past, SCEA marketing manager Mark Valledor recently responded to a PlayStation.Blog commenter who asked whether LBP 2 would feature the eye-popping tech, explaining, "Sorry, no 3D this time around."

Nintendo UK promotion offered Donkey Kong Country Returns in exchange for bananas

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2337 days, 10 hours, 8 minutes ago
Sunday, December 05, 2010 11:21:35 AM GMT
Nintendo offered a strange promotional deal for Donkey Kong Country Returns at UK video game stores recently. All fans were asked to do is bring in real bananas; the first 20 who did would get a copy of Retro Studios' brilliantly tough platformer. And, sure enough, it worked -- fans handing over bananas got a copy of the game, as well as a photo opportunity with ... the store employees. (more)

Uncharted film plot not making nice with game plot

When Mark Wahlberg revealed he'd be playing Nathan Drake in David O. Russell's upcoming film adaptation of Naughty Dog's Uncharted, he caused quite a stir. He even stated Russell was writing characters into the film for Hollywood heavies Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro, as Drake family members that never appeared in the games. (more)

Yes, we're all still sore that Valkyria Chronicles 3 isn't bringing the series back to PS3, but the previous PSP sequel delivered a solid experience, so at least the quality isn't hurting. Check out the Japanese opener for the darker third installment after the break. Don't be fooled by the J-pop. (more)

XtendPlay extends your Xbox 360 or PS3 controller, vertically

Your Xbox or PS3 controller is okay the way it is ... but it could be so much more boogie board-shaped. The XtendPlay attachment adds a big block of foam to the bottom of your controller, apparently to both make your grip on your controller more comfortable and allow you to rest the whole thing in your lap more easily. Or something. (more)

You've seen so many Kinect hacks by now that you probably think you know them all -- but wait, have you seen one that makes you look like Predator when he's busy predatorizing the populace? Or one that lets you reenact your favorite Metal Gear Solid scenes with Snake's camo turned on? Yup, a Japanese coder by the name of Takayuki Fukatsu has exploited the versatile openFrameworks to give Kinect a mode where it tracks your movement and position, but turns the dull details of your visage into an almost per...

Think you have what it takes to be a real professional racer? If so, you'll want to enter in this year's GT Academy. The tournament challenges Gran Turismo 5 players to take on a series of online time trial events. Over the course of five weeks, players will compete to record the fastest lap times, and the top 128 players per region (four regions total) will move on to the second round, one step closer to the grand prize: an opportunity to join a real racing team and compete in a real race.
