posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2542 days, 1 hour, 49 minutes ago
Friday, December 03, 2010 10:08:21 AM GMT
You know, in retrospect, that was quite a tell. Just last week, Splosion Man 'sploded to the top of the Xbox Live Arcade charts thanks to a hefty 75% Black Friday discount; this week, developer Twisted Pixel introduces us to Ms. Splosion Man, the titular leading lady in its next digitally delivered opus, coming "fall of 2011." Notably absent from the press release: a platform. Splosion Man was, of course, an Xbox Live Arcade-exclusive and part of Microsoft's 2009 Summer of Arcade. (more)

Accused Xbox 360 modder finds case pleasantly dismissed

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2542 days, 1 hour, 51 minutes ago
Friday, December 03, 2010 10:06:17 AM GMT
The case of 28-year old CSU student Matthew Crippen has come and gone. Arrested last year on Digital Millennium Copyright Act violations -- specifically, for modding Xbox 360s to enable them to play pirated games -- federal prosecutor Allen Chiu announced on the third day of trial that the government was dropping its case against him "based on fairness and justice."

55 people think the iPad is more valuable than the Galaxy Tab (updated)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2542 days, 1 hour, 52 minutes ago
Friday, December 03, 2010 10:05:18 AM GMT
If you read tech news today, expect to see a story making the rounds concerning a "consumer poll" rating the iPad versus the Galaxy Tab. According to the report, an "overwhelming majority" of consumers prefer Apple's tablet over its nearest Android competitor -- a whopping 85 percent of those queried felt the iPad had a higher perceived value than the Tab. Sounds shocking, right? Except there's one small problem. The "survey" (and really, you have to use the term loosely here) consisted of 65 people. Let... (more)

Friday, December 03, 2010 10:03:52 AM GMT
If you were hoping NASA was going to announce the very first tweet from an extraterrestrial being, sorry to break your heart -- it is astrobiological, but the findings are actually borne of this rock. Researchers in Mono Lake, California, have discovered a microorganism (pictured) that uses arsenic instead of phosphorous to thrive and reproduce. (more)

Classic Golden Sun commercial finally explained by Dark Dawn

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2546 days, 2 hours, 40 minutes ago
Monday, November 29, 2010 9:17:34 AM GMT
Back in 2001, Nintendo released a fairly gorgeous commercial for Golden Sun -- however, for all its glitz and glamor, it wasn't exactly packing in the coherence department. A giant crystal dragon, totally wrecking shop in a jam-packed opera house? We don't remember that in the original Game Boy Advance RPG. As it turns out, there's a reason for that: That sequence wouldn't make it into the franchise until this very year, with the release of Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. (more)

Sony announced this week that BBC America programming is heading to PlayStation 3's across the United States. To kick off the new partnership, BBC America has made the first episode of the American version of "Top Gear" available at no charge (normally $1.99 for SD, $2.99 for HD), at least for the first two weeks. "Doctor Who" and "Being Human" will join "Top Gear" on the network's launch list at some point in December, and BBC America promises to "rapidly add BBC programming each week, including the bes...

Kinect sells 26,000 in Japanese launch weekend

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2546 days, 2 hours, 49 minutes ago
Monday, November 29, 2010 9:08:54 AM GMT
Kinect had what most people would call a successful launch, moving over one million units worldwide during its first week on store shelves; however, the device wasn't met with quite as warm a reception in Japan. According to Media Create, Microsoft's new all-seeing eye had a "quiet start" in the region, moving just 26,000 units during its launch weekend of November 20 -- that includes both standalone and 360-bundled Kinects.

Mario Sports Mix features one behemoth of a boss battle

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2546 days, 2 hours, 49 minutes ago
Monday, November 29, 2010 9:08:52 AM GMT
Well, here's a ... weird ... thing. We knew that Mario Sports Mix would feature characters from the Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest franchises, but we weren't aware of the other aspects the athletic Wii title would borrow from those two RPG franchises. TheBitBlock recently uncovered a bizarre gameplay clip from Mix -- apparently, at one point, you have to face off against one of Final Fantasy's Behemoths, using your epic volleyball skills. Yes, really. (more)

YouTube user Yankeyan recently showed off one of the cleverest Kinect hacks we've seen to date: He's managed to use the motion-sensing gadget to control Super Mario Bros. 1 - 3 on an NES emulator. Well, he kind of controls it. We've never seen anyone work so hard to grab that first mushroom before. (more)

Sony fires barrage of touchscreen patent applications, only one points at new PSP

Monday, November 29, 2010 9:04:42 AM GMT
Lawyers for Sony Computer Entertainment America must have been mighty busy last October, hatching the wild scheme that came to light this week -- a series of eight intertwining patent applications all describing a single device with an intriguing touchscreen interface. Though it's hard to tell what form the final device might take -- the apps suggest sliders, clamshells and slates -- a few distinct ideas bubble to the surface, and we'll knock them out one by one.

Despite the soul crushing fact that Mario Sports Mix is indeed a game that Square Enix is making that stars Mario characters but is not a new Mario RPG I have to say that I'm a little intrigued to see if it offers anything new up in the world of Wii sporting games other than have Dragon Quest characters in it.
