Wednesday, August 11, 2010 8:01:26 AM GMT
No one on staff is particularly interested in massively multiplayer online games; shocking, I know! Perhaps that will change with Guild Wars 2, perhaps not. A while back, executive producer Mike O'Brien posted a hype-filled design manifesto -- maybe you skimmed it? (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2415 days, 22 hours, 10 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 11, 2010 7:53:44 AM GMT
Michael Ryder, vice president and executive managing director for Blizzard’s international operations, seems to indicate that Blizzard isn't too worried about piracy.

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2415 days, 22 hours, 16 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 11, 2010 7:47:58 AM GMT
When Australia goes to the polls on August 21st, citizens will vote for more than men and the traditional issues they represent -- the ballots cast will directly impact the country's national broadband plan. Where Australia's ruling Labor party had pledged A$43 billion for an up-to-100Mbps fiber optic network fed directly to 90 99 percent of homes (and agreed to pay A$11 billion to Telstra) over the next seven to eight years, the opposing Liberal-National coalition says if elected, it will scrap that not...

Hands-on: Sid Meier's Civilization V

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2419 days, 21 hours, 16 minutes ago
Saturday, August 07, 2010 8:47:57 AM GMT
I have fond memories of playing Civilization II on my old HP Pavilion. Part of the charm about Civilization II was that it was an incredibly deep and enjoyable game hidden beneath a relatively simple exterior. I must have spent hundreds of hours playing that game, which means a lot for someone who does not view his personal computer as much of a game machine. (more)

There are two great mysteries of the digital age: how did a Welshman become the most powerful man in Japan and when will the Beatles be available for download on iTunes? While the former will forever remain a mystery, speculation picked up on the latter in 2006 after Apple and Apple Corps -- the record label owned by Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono and the estate of George Harrison -- settled a long running dispute.

Apple reportedly in talks to buy Chinese gaming company Handseeing

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2419 days, 21 hours, 28 minutes ago
Saturday, August 07, 2010 8:35:41 AM GMT
We don't often hear from the source of an Apple acquisition target before the deal is done, but that's just what's happened in this case -- a VP at Chinese gaming company Handseeing says that it's in talks with Apple about an acquisition and "should have a decision in about one or two months." What could Apple possibly want with the little known company? Your guess is as good as ours, but the company's main product is its JGnet platform for online games -- which, incidentally, is Java-based. Of course, H... (more)

250GB Xbox 360 Kinect bundle tipped on 4GB packaging

Saturday, August 07, 2010 8:33:59 AM GMT
Well, well -- what have we here? We already knew that Microsoft was planning to ship a 4GB Xbox 360 bundle that included Kinect, and now it seems as if the Big M will also package its forthcoming motion sensor with the 250GB 'box. Based on the packaging of a 4GB bundle over in Australia, it definitely looks as if consumers will have a more capacious option if buying an Xbox 360 for the first time with Kinect, but we're all waiting with bated breath to hear the official confirmation (or denial, but mostl...

We heard a while ago that Defense of the Ancients creator Icefrog had been hired by Valve to work on something that would make DotA fans excited, and now voiceover artist Jon St. John – better known as the voice of Duke Nukem – has tweeted that he visited Valve in Seattle to do some "recording for DotA." Interesting. There have been a few DotA-style games released already, including the popular League of Legends and Heroes of Newerth, but if Valve's collaboration with Icefrog is actually called Defense o...
