posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2524 days, 15 hours, 7 minutes ago
Thursday, August 26, 2010 7:39:50 AM GMT
Budding warmongers across Europe will likely want to set aside some HDD space for a R.U.S.E. demo, set to assault PSN there on September 1. However, if you're one of the cool kids with expendable income who signed up for PlayStation Plus, you can actually access the demo right now -- provided you live in the EU. (more)

Review: Ys Seven

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2524 days, 15 hours, 12 minutes ago
Thursday, August 26, 2010 7:34:59 AM GMT
'm trying to remember the last time I played an action RPG. I...can't. Maybe that's why playing through Falcom's newly released Ys Seven was so refreshing. It's not amazing or groundbreaking by any measure, but it is lighthearted, polished and fun. When was the last time you said that about any game? (more)

We told you earlier how an Italian city wanted their track removed from Gran Turismo 5. That was like an invitation to dump on the Italian town and its people. And you did. But now it may be time to dump on Sony for giving in to their demands. (more)

2K loses fight to take BioShock.com from domain squatters

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2524 days, 15 hours, 17 minutes ago
Thursday, August 26, 2010 7:29:53 AM GMT
2K Games has failed one of the cardinal rules of the Internet -- make sure you stop people taking your stuff. So it is that the publisher has been unable to wrestle the BioShock.com URL from a cyber squatting firm. Name Administration Media snagged the URL back before the game was officially announced, but after 2K Games had filed a trademark for it. NA Media won the fight to keep the domain after stating that the BioShock name could reference other things, such as a currently existing cosmetic lineup ... (more)

Crashes and drama surround Elemental's launch

Thursday, August 26, 2010 7:28:04 AM GMT
This is just painful. The new Stardock strategy game for PC, Elemental: War of Magic, is going through a rough time: its launch this week has been met with game-breaking bugs and crashes, much to the dissatisfaction of fans. But wait, the situation gets worse. On the Quarter to Three forums, outspoken Stardock CEO Brad Wardell responded to criticism with the following post: "Also, to anyone, like you Ben, saying the game is like an 'early beta' then well, please stay away from our games in the future.

However, gamers planning on cracking their console should think carefully about whether or not they're willing to give up the PSN in exchange for pirated games and homebrew software. (more)

EA won't bow to Medal of Honor controversy

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2525 days, 16 hours, 13 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 6:34:05 AM GMT
Allow gamers to take up the mantle of the Taliban in your game and you're bound to receive some ire. EA is learning all about that with Medal of Honor, as the mainstream media and the British government have vocalized concerns. British Defence Secretary Liam Fox has actually called for a countrywide ban of the game outright, stating that it's "shocking that someone would think it acceptable to recreate the acts of the Taliban against British soldiers," even though you don't actually kill any British troo...

Were you thinking that right about now would be a good time to make Parasite Eve and Parasite Eve 2 available via PSN, given the upcoming release of the third game in the series on PSP? Then, dear Reader, you have something in common with series character designer Tetsuya Nomura. He recently tweeted that he wants just that: a digital re-release of the PSOne titles, before The 3rd Birthday -- the game whose success could lead to a PS3 title in the series -- hits Japan. (more)

Introversion credits Steam for company's salvation

In a candid post on Introversion Software's DEFCON forums, company co-founder Mark Morris admits that the Darwinia+ developer was close to closing up shop following disappointing sales of the game's XBLA port. "Internally we knew within about an hour of Darwinia+'s launch that it hadn't done well enough," Morris wrote. "It took us about two weeks to really accept that and the awful realisation that we didn't have enough to continue with the office or the staff. We had a bunch of creditors knocking at the... (more)

The release date comes nearly two years after the second expansion pack invaded the free world.

I'm currently toiling away at what should be the last Udon book review for the week; The Art of Resident Evil 5. It's an amazing book. Look for the review tomorrow. As much fun as these reviews are to write; facts are facts. Book reviews on a videogame websites tend to get overlooked. That's why I'm taking this bit of info I gleaned from The Art of Resident Evil 5 and posting it here. I think it's interesting enough to point out to you non-book review reading members of the internet audience. (more)
