Rock Band Avatar 'rocks' Xbox Live or something

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2453 days, 13 hours, 4 minutes ago
Friday, September 03, 2010 6:18:58 AM GMT
I've spent a lot of MS Points on Rock Band songs, but very few on Avatar items. By "very few" I mean zero. So Harmonix and MTV Games introducing Rock Band Avatar items seems like some kind of ploy into tricking me to purchase them. Well, it's not going to work, damn it. (more)

Pictured: First Look at the T-Mobile G2 Android

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2453 days, 13 hours, 16 minutes ago
Friday, September 03, 2010 6:06:21 AM GMT
The G1 was the first Android phone to launch after the iPhone, and the smartphone market was a very different place back then. The G1 was expected to unseat the iPhone as king of the smartphones, or at least offer some kind of competition. However, it wasn't until we started seeing Android phones from several more manufacturers did Android really start to take off. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2453 days, 13 hours, 24 minutes ago
Friday, September 03, 2010 5:58:21 AM GMT
Not everybody needs the world's fastest mobile GPU, so NVIDIA is sagely trickling down its Fermi magic to more affordable price points today. The 400M family is being fleshed out with five new midrange parts -- GT 445M, GT 435M, GT 425M, GT 420M and GT 415M, to give them their gorgeous names -- and a pair of heavy hitters known as the GTX 470M and GTX 460M.

Kingdom Hearts Re:coded will be playable at TGS 2010

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2459 days, 11 hours, 8 minutes ago
Saturday, August 28, 2010 8:15:09 AM GMT
Wow, TGS is in a couple of weeks! I need to dig out my passport and find that leftover yen change that was still in my jeans from the last visit. I also need to make a note to give Kingdom Hearts Re:coded a spin while I'm there, as it will be on the show floor as a demo. Tetsuya Nomura updated the 3rd Birthday Twitter feed to say that the game would be playable next month in Tokyo. KH fans likely already know that this is the DS remake of Japanese mobile game Kingdom Hearts coded. Cute name for a port, ... (more)

Platinum says Vanquish will be identical on PS3, 360

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2459 days, 11 hours, 9 minutes ago
Saturday, August 28, 2010 8:14:09 AM GMT
Gamers were a bit bent out of shape last year when Platinum Games' Bayonetta wasn't, shall we say, quite the same on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The PlayStation 3 version of the game, which was "farmed out" to another developer for a port, took a few hits in both content and visuals. That shouldn't be a problem with Platinum's upcoming shooter, Vanquish, says the system programmer in charge of developing the PlayStation 3 version. (more)

DROID X Wins Victory in Android Battery Shootout

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2459 days, 11 hours, 25 minutes ago
Saturday, August 28, 2010 7:57:20 AM GMT
Smartphones are a wonderful invention but they're seriously lacking in one department: battery life. Smartphones are more powerful and can do a lot more than just your regular dumbphone. Hence, the battery doesn't last nearly as long. Manufacturers are always working to improve battery life, and there are steps you can take to conserve power (such as turning off 3G or WiFi when they're not needed), but what phone has the best battery life to begin with?

Kinect Beta Info Leaked with Screens, Video

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2459 days, 11 hours, 25 minutes ago
Saturday, August 28, 2010 7:57:17 AM GMT
Recently we reported that Microsoft was supposedly distributing invites to a closed beta program for Kinect. At the time, the invites were distributed through the Microsoft Connect channel, the company's service for gathering customer feedback on its products. However the legitimacy of the emails was questionable given the hype surrounding the device and the opportunity it posed for email-based malware developers. (more)

Just as we thought, HTC's Droid Incredible for Verizon is getting boosted from Android 2.1 to 2.2 today, which should make plenty of owners (and plenty of non-owners who've been unable to find any stock for the past couple months) happy as a clam. Major features include pre-installed Flash 10.1, 720p video recording, mobile hotspot support as first introduced for Verizon on the Droid X, and naturally, all the other standard greatness you've come to expect with Froyo. We imagine this update will take a ... (more)

Watch this James Bond 007: Blood Stone trailer by any means necessary

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2461 days, 11 hours, 36 minutes ago
Thursday, August 26, 2010 7:47:08 AM GMT
Your task isn't nearly as daunting as the one facing Bizarre's Bond in Blood Stone. The iconic spy is sent to Istanbul to intercept the sale of "mission-critical biotechnology," and is granted inevitably catastrophic permission to do so "by any means necessary." The only thing in Istanbul we don't feel sorry for is the drill on loan from Total Recall. (more)

Ape Escape for PS3 listed by GameStop, likely a Move game

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2461 days, 11 hours, 41 minutes ago
Thursday, August 26, 2010 7:41:41 AM GMT
Siliconera spotted a GameStop listing for a brand new Ape Escape title coming to the PS3 on November 1 of this year. While Sony actually has two Ape Escape (known in Japan as Saru Getchu) titles on tap, Ape Escape 4 is farther away from release than Ape Escape Fury! Fury!, so this listing probably refers to the latter. (more)

Seven lamps of fire burned, and four beings full of eyes appeared in front and behind. And the first being was like a frog, and the second being like a nymph, and the third being had the face of a man, and the fourth being was like a yawning penguin. (more)
