PSA: Shogun 2: Total War is now Total War: Shogun 2

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2490 days, 16 hours, 48 minutes ago
Sunday, November 28, 2010 11:04:20 AM GMT
Throwing away ten years of tradition, the Total War franchise name is finally taking its place at the front of the title. Eurogamer reports that Shogun 2: Total War, announced this past summer, will henceforth be known as Total War: Shogun 2. A Sega representative explains (yes, really), "Both Creative Assembly and Sega have intended to invert the Total War naming convention for some time ... We wanted to identify all of these as one series using a more obvious naming convention for players." (more)

Sega resets Sonic 4's leaderboards due to cheating

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2490 days, 16 hours, 49 minutes ago
Sunday, November 28, 2010 11:03:18 AM GMT
Look, Sonic the Hedgehog is fast. He can run faster than the speed of sound, but even if he ran full speed through Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1's shortest level, it would still take him longer than 0'00"00 to do it. That's just physically impossible, even for an improbably proportioned and colored hedgehog. And since some hackers have posted those times and impossible scores on the game's Xbox 360 leaderboards, Sega has decided to go through and reset the whole thing. (more)

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit PC patch to bring law-breaking bugs to a stop

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2490 days, 16 hours, 51 minutes ago
Sunday, November 28, 2010 11:01:37 AM GMT
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit's dev team has been combing the code of the game for some additional features and bugfixes, and both of those are set to peel out in the title in a patch next week. The patch should lay down an EMP on issues with multi-core CPUs, pop a spike strip on some runaway rain and snow effect issues, and set up a roadblock for a few other crashes and problems, stopping them in their tracks.

Square Enix files trademark for 'A Survivor is Born'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2490 days, 16 hours, 52 minutes ago
Sunday, November 28, 2010 11:00:34 AM GMT
The precarious, towering pile of evidence that Square Enix is planning a big reveal for a new installment in the Tomb Raider franchise just got a little bit taller -- Tomb Raider BIZ, a fansite for the crypt-plundering series, recently uncovered a trademark filed by the UK office of Square Enix, reserving the phrase "A Survivor is Born" for use with "computer game software" and "video game software" and "potpourri." Aha! We made that last one up. Just making sure you're paying attention. (more)

The Webcam Super Spyscope

Kitbasher KipKay stripped an old webcam for its optics and circuitry. With some hot glue, PVC piping, and a rubber cap, he secured the webcam to an off-the-shelf sniper scope. The result? a high magnification spy gadget that lets you capture video footage at a distance. (more)

Pirate Bay founders lose appeal: jail time reduced, fines raised

It's been a while since the four Pirate Bay founders lost their case in a Stockholm district court -- April 2009, to be more precise. The verdict was of course appealed, but alas, it was not to be. A Swedish appeals court has upheld the original ruling but changed the sentencing. (more)

Screen Grabs: BlackBerry Eyed PlayBooks (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2494 days, 17 hours, 49 minutes ago
Wednesday, November 24, 2010 10:03:19 AM GMT
Whoulda thunk that the third time we'd see the BlackBerry PlayBook on video, it'd be in the hands of cube-headed dopplegangster Will.I.Shill? Not us, but we're terribly excited to see the 7-inch tablet show off its augmented reality chops in the Black Eyed Peas' latest music video. We're not really sure what alternate reality hijinks turned the musicians into 8-bit portraits nor pixelated their world, but the BEP sure look adorable as Xbox LIVE-friendly avatars. Watch it after the break, or skip to 2:12,... (more)

Nintendo returning to CES after a 16-year absence

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2494 days, 17 hours, 50 minutes ago
Wednesday, November 24, 2010 10:02:17 AM GMT
If there's one event that's immune to being overhyped, it's the annual January expo of everything consumer electronics, known to you and us as CES. The only downer to this geek endurance test is that we've felt it's been lacking a little on the gaming front lately, which is why we're so giddy to hear the news that Nintendo will be rejoining the ranks of exhibitors over in Las Vegas in a few weeks' time. CES 2011 will be the first time in 16 years that the console sales leader has deigned to pitch up a st... (more)

Acer Iconia first hands-on! (update: video!)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2494 days, 17 hours, 51 minutes ago
Wednesday, November 24, 2010 10:01:16 AM GMT
Acer's dual-screen Iconia laptop is bold, for sure -- eschewing a physical keyboard for another display -- but its LCD panels are also mighty glossy. If you've got a light in the vicinity above you, there's gonna be glare -- we saw it on stage, and we just saw it now in person. That said, the screen is clear and the touch functionality is pretty clever (five fingers open up a widget where you can scroll through other touch-friendly apps). (more)

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 multiplayer update on PS3 today, other versions shortly

Wednesday, November 24, 2010 10:00:15 AM GMT
hile Battlefield: Bad Company 2 soldiers wait for VIP Map Pack 7 and -- more importantly -- a Vietnam release date, it appears that a much-welcomed update to the game's multiplayer is coming to consoles. You'll recall that a version of the patch was released for PC last month. Included in the multiplayer patch are several needed tweaks, the most important of which is the 50 percent weapon damage reduction to MCOM stations so the device doesn't detonate instantly thanks to the ol' "C4 on UAV" exploit.

Good news: Microsoft has plans to offer Kinect development tools to XNA developers.

Telltale shares first Back to the Future: The Game screens

Great Scott, Marty, it's the very first screenshot of Telltale's much-anticipated Back to the Future episodic game. The company has shared a few shots of the title in action for the first time and, as you can see above, the look is more stylistic than realistic. That's certainly Marty and the Doc, but visualized with a little more flair than their real-life counterparts. (more)
