GoldenEye Wii Gets Golden Classic Controller Pro

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2505 days, 12 hours, 46 minutes ago
Friday, August 13, 2010 7:39:57 AM GMT
GoldenEye is set to make a comeback on the Wii, but the way it was played back on the Nintendo 64 didn't involve any waggle remote or nunchuk attachment. To make GoldenEye on Wii feel more like the classic, you'd want the classic controller. (more)

Crytek Says 3D is the Future of Crysis

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2505 days, 12 hours, 48 minutes ago
Friday, August 13, 2010 7:37:34 AM GMT
It should come as no surprise that Crytek's roadmap for the Crysis IP will permanently incorporate 3D. Crytek boss Cervat Yerli revealed the company's plans in a recent interview after he was asked if 3D was merely an experiment inserted into the upcoming game, Crysis 2. Surprisingly, he admitted that the sequel is somewhat of a re-launch of the franchise. (more)

Sony Planning PSP Go Phone Running Android 3.0

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2505 days, 12 hours, 49 minutes ago
Friday, August 13, 2010 7:36:32 AM GMT
This is a rumor we've heard many times before. With Sony Ericsson regularly associating its phones with other Sony products (the Walkman line for music phones, the Cybershot line for camera phones), it seems like it's only a matter of time before we see a gaming phone linked to the PSP. (more)

Palm Pixi shows off 3D gaming chops with webOS 1.4.5 release (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2505 days, 12 hours, 59 minutes ago
Friday, August 13, 2010 7:26:23 AM GMT
What with all the "battery optimization" excitement, we nearly forgot that Sprint's new webOS 1.4.5 update doesn't just empower the Pre; it also finally brings PDK'd OpenGL and SDL support to the Palm Pixi. On the off chance you don't speak developer lingo, that's short for 3D apps and games, and as it turns out the pint-sized Pixi doesn't play the latter half-badly. (more)

Namco Bandai's latest Ace Combat game, headed to PS3 and Xbox 360 next year, adds something new to the formula that's sure to please people who really hate airplanes.

Preview: Shaun White Skateboarding

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2507 days, 11 hours, 45 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 11, 2010 8:41:05 AM GMT
What's happening in the screenshot above is one of the elements that makes Shaun White Skateboarding stand apart from the likes of Tony Hawk and EA's Skate 3. By doing tricks and generally skateboarding really well, you're transforming the game world from one that's monochromatic and lifeless into an eye-popping technicolor wonderland. Yes, it's pretty much like when Dorothy opens her front door after landing in Oz. (more)

Completely bizarre 'LSD' game coming to PSOne Classics

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2507 days, 11 hours, 54 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 11, 2010 8:31:22 AM GMT
So, LSD: Dream Emulator is the weirdest game ever made by anybody. After becoming entranced by the hours of footage from the game currently on YouTube, we feel like we can make that statement with complete certainty. The game features no plot or any goals to speak of whatsoever -- it only tasks the player with taking short, ten-minute jaunts through areas inspired by a dream journal kept by a staff member of its Japanese developer, Asmik Ace Entertainment, who may or may not have been tripping on LSD at ...

The Old Republic's 'tunnel shooter' space combat explained

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2507 days, 12 hours ago
Wednesday, August 11, 2010 8:25:41 AM GMT
Specifics about the recently announced space combat mechanics in LucasArts and BioWare's upcoming MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, have been awfully hard to come by. Rumors have circulated claiming the game's aerial component would resemble an on-rails shooter, while others say it would give players full control over their ship's movement. The real answer, as revealed by the October edition of PC Gamer, falls somewhere in between. (more)

Costume Quest is Double Fine's first downloadable title

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2507 days, 12 hours, 1 minute ago
Wednesday, August 11, 2010 8:24:50 AM GMT
As reported from last month's Develop conference, Double Fine – the San Francisco-based development studio led by Tim Schafer – won't be following up Brütal Legend with Brütal Legend 2. Instead, it's working on four "smaller" games, the first of which has just been revealed. Costume Quest is the first of two games being published by THQ and it's not being designed by Tim Schafer himself. (more)

Sports is the ultimate common ground for the common man. From the salt-of-the-earth mechanic to the high-powered Wall Street exec, sports has always broken social barriers and given all (well, most) of us something to relate to each other with. Sports games, on the other hand: not so much. (more)

Pikmin-like Monsteca Corral hitting WiiWare next week

I'll try my best here, but honestly, words cannot accurately describe the weirdness of Monsteca Corral: Monsters vs. Robots. For that, you'll need to watch this video. Notice how there is a caterpillar meter, and upon filling it up, a giant caterpillar Astromaggot starts flying around the world. (more)

Our first glimpse of Double Fine's Costume Quest

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2507 days, 12 hours, 16 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 11, 2010 8:09:35 AM GMT
Ah, so this is Double Fine's Costume Quest. As you might have guessed based on its trademark, it does, in fact, have to do with Halloween. UGO, who has the exclusive, describes it as feeling "like a lost SNES role-playing adventure ported in high-definition 3D." Looking over the screenshots, it appears as if kids are fighting monsters in badass-ified versions of their Halloween costumes. I like where this is going! (more)
