Activision Blizzard posts better-than-expected Q3 results: $51m in profits on $745m in revenue

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2367 days, 8 hours, 51 minutes ago
Friday, November 05, 2010 8:41:29 AM GMT
Thanks to "strong performance" from industry staples like Activision Publishing's Call of Duty franchise and Blizzard Entertainment's perennial MMO World of Warcraft and a stellar launch for Blizz's long-anticipated sequel StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty, Activision Blizzard exceeded its prior third-quarter outlook of $600 million with net revenues of $745 million in the period ending September 30, 2010. Compare that to net revenues of $703 million for the same period last year. It also reported profits of... (more)

Atlus to begin The Cursed Crusade on Xbox, PS3 and PC

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2367 days, 8 hours, 52 minutes ago
Friday, November 05, 2010 8:40:27 AM GMT
Atlus PR and sales bard, Aram Jabbari, describes The Cursed Crusade as "a story of salvation and survival" set during the often unpleasant Middle Ages. "The game's main characters are not heroes; they're just men, susceptible to temptation, easily made to feel doubt and despair," Jabbari says, plucking a string (but in like, a sinister way). (more)

Fighters Uncaged unreview: It's unbelievably ungood

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2367 days, 8 hours, 53 minutes ago
Friday, November 05, 2010 8:39:30 AM GMT
One time, I was pushing a TV around so I could watch He-Man while I ate my Cap'n Crunch in the dining room. I was four years old. I accidentally pushed the TV over, bringing it smashing down on my finger. I had to get eight stitches and I eventually lost the fingernail. (more)

See gameplay 'target' footage of Spielberg's canceled Project LMNO

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2367 days, 8 hours, 54 minutes ago
Friday, November 05, 2010 8:38:32 AM GMT
It's common practice for developers to create "target" footage of their games early in the development process in order to give their artists and designers something to shoot for. Following its look back at the now-canceled collaboration between EA and director Steven Spielberg, Project LMNO, 1UP has posted what it says is target gameplay footage from the cooperative "escape" game.

Kinect vs. our living rooms: A survey

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2367 days, 8 hours, 58 minutes ago
Friday, November 05, 2010 8:34:13 AM GMT
Some of us at Joystiq have had Kinect units in our living rooms for a week or so now and, as you read in our review, Kinect can be especially sensitive about your interior decorating. Couch to close to the television? Just move it, the sensor advises. Massive coffee table right where you should be standing? Just slide it out of the way, it suggests. For some of us, this ad-hoc redecorating process is relatively painless (more)

StarCraft 2 Players Get 1 Free Name Change

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2367 days, 9 hours, 4 minutes ago
Friday, November 05, 2010 8:28:11 AM GMT
Tuesday Blizzard announced that all StarCraft II accounts were granted one free name change. The company originally said back in August 2010 that the feature was in the works--essentially a "fix" for players who chose character names that typically didn't represent their multiplayer aliases because they were unaware of how character names were used.

W3C: A Case of Careless Management

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2367 days, 9 hours, 8 minutes ago
Friday, November 05, 2010 8:24:10 AM GMT
Yesterday I published a pretty entertaining story about how you can misrepresent characteristics of a product by skewing benchmarks (read the details here.) the article was based on a rather questionable browser benchmark procedure published by the W3C that aimed to indicate the HTML5 compliance of web browsers. The problem was that browser that cannot be compared and that there was, in particular, an IE version that was not available at the time of the test run. (more)

If you ever doubted that Microsoft's Kinect was based on PrimeSense technology, you can leave those suspicions at the door -- iFixit's separated the twin-eye motion sensing camera into its constituent parts, and there's definitely PrimeSense silicon on board. (more)

Like, what's the historical significance of all those jet packs, you know? These pressing questions may soon find an answer -- developer Hi-Rez Studios has acquired the rights to the Tribes franchise, and is using those newfound rights to make a PvP-focused action-MMO titled Tribes Universe.

Activision tries to play nice with pirates

Monday, October 25, 2010 2:20:34 AM GMT
There's no stopping the pirating of games. It's going to happen whether it should or shouldn't. However, the tactics used against pirates can vary greatly. Most of the time a company being pirated comes down hard on pirate, but Activision is reportedly trying something different. They're trying to be nice. (more)

Look, we're all curious what a Bizarre-crafted Bond game is gong to look like -- but we're going to have to wait just a little longer than we expected to satisfy that curiosity. When asked during an interview with VG247 whether a 007: Blood Stone demo would arrive on PSN and Xbox Live before the game's release, director Jeff Lewis replied, "unfortunately not." (more)

Taiko Drum Master Wii adds four-player support, party games

Monday, October 25, 2010 2:11:24 AM GMT
For some, the sound of one person banging on a plastic drum peripheral just isn't enough. Two? Not gonna cut it. Now four, that might get the decibel level high enough. Good thing, then, that Namco Bandai's next Taiko Drum Master game for Wii, Taiko Drum Master Wii: Everyone Party, will let four players cooperate and compete simultaneously when it launches in Japan on December 2.
