Maxis' Spore-based action-RPG to be announced at Comic Con

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2446 days, 21 hours, 34 minutes ago
Sunday, July 11, 2010 8:33:35 AM GMT
The schedule for San Diego Comic Con 2010 was updated earlier today, adding a few game-centric panels focusing on titles like Guild Wars 2, Red Faction Armageddon, Epic Mickey and more to Saturday's proceedings. However, one panel in particular caught our eye: "Video Game Reveal: Maxis Studio." According to the event's details, the panel will see a handful of members from the Maxis dev team unveil "a brand new, Sci-Fi Action-RPG based on the DNA of Spore." (more)

DeathSpank trailer previews some unorthodox armaments

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2446 days, 21 hours, 35 minutes ago
Sunday, July 11, 2010 8:32:47 AM GMT
We've discussed some of the unique weapons you'll be wielding in Ron Gilbert's upcoming XBLA and PSN title, DeathSpank, but you really can't get a good feel for them until you see them in action. It's like, you can read about the Demon Poop Hammer all day, but you've really got to see it swing. (more)

Report: China to ban violent, sexual marketing of online games

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2446 days, 21 hours, 36 minutes ago
Sunday, July 11, 2010 8:31:18 AM GMT
China's Ministry of Culture is once again cracking down on the online game industry in an attempt to limit the amount of "unwholesome" content the sector produces. According to a report from China Daily, the nation's officials are prohibiting the use of sex, violence or gambling to market Chinese developers' online games. Like the other regulations under this initiative, these restrictions will be effective as of August 1. (more)

3D Displays May Be Hazardous to Young Children

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2446 days, 21 hours, 40 minutes ago
Sunday, July 11, 2010 8:28:15 AM GMT
3D is all the rage right now, with cinemas and home theatre equipment both beefing up with glasses-mandatory viewing. Even gaming on-the-go is heading that way too with Nintendo's upcoming 3DS handheld. While 3D gives us a neat effect while watching Toy Story 3, taking the kids to see that one over and over again, and eventually when it's on Blu-ray Disc, isn't a good idea at all. (more)

Citrix enlists iPhone 4 in its quest for 'Nirvana phone' portable desktop client (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2446 days, 21 hours, 40 minutes ago
Sunday, July 11, 2010 8:27:27 AM GMT
Critix has been touting its "Nirvana phone" concept -- a handheld device that can be paired with a monitor / keyboard for remote desktop use -- for quite some time now. Back in February, the minimum hardware specs were nothing to challenging, and as it turns out, Apple's iPhone 4 pretty much exceeds 'em by a long shot. And it has VGA out capabilities and Bluetooth keyboard support. So, you can imagine where this is going. The company is back in what looks like the same depressing cubicle space to show of... (more)

Geohot teases iPhone 4 jailbreak, no plans for release

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2446 days, 21 hours, 41 minutes ago
Sunday, July 11, 2010 8:26:38 AM GMT
Is this the honest-to-goodness iPhone 4 jailbreak we've been waiting for, or just another userland JB? It's hard to say from here... but either way, don't expect Geohot to release it into the wild. In a mildly jaded blog post, the original iPhone hacker makes it clear that whatever he did here was for his own amusement, and judging by the title of that entry ("Meh") the whole breaking-and-entering bit isn't giving him quite the same chuckles it used to. That's a shame, but we hear the iPhone Dev Team is ... (more)

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West hits store October 5

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2447 days, 20 hours, 5 minutes ago
Saturday, July 10, 2010 10:03:02 AM GMT
If you're anything like me, you've been really excited for Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. Ninja Theory demonstrated it could tell a great story with Heavenly Sword, but the gameplay was a little lacking. Enslaved aims to provide both the story and the gameplay, and from what I played, both aims are met with aplomb! (more)

Plants vs. Zombies 2 is a thing?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2447 days, 20 hours, 8 minutes ago
Saturday, July 10, 2010 10:00:10 AM GMT
Are you one of the many bajillions who went apeshit over Plants vs. Zombies? If so, then a winner is you, for there seems to be some strong hints at a sequel. According to the above teaser image, we have to save the date of August 2 as some form of undead-flavored news is on the way! The general consensus is that this is the announcement of Plants vs. Zombies 2, although we're sure PopCap will remain tight-lipped about it until next month. (more)

Our first look at H.A.W.X. 2 in motion

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2447 days, 20 hours, 8 minutes ago
Saturday, July 10, 2010 9:59:22 AM GMT
I have to hand it to Ubisoft -- the folks responsible for coming up with the title "H.A.W.X. 2" resisted the urge to "cleverly" place the number two inside of the acronym. We wouldn't want another 5nal Destination or F.3.A.R. on our hands, now would we? (more)

Civilization V goes classy with its special edition

Saturday, July 10, 2010 9:57:40 AM GMT
Now granted, "classy" isn't the first word that pops into my mind when I see little metal men -- in fact, it would probably be one of the last descriptors to come up -- but look at that slick art for the box/book/CD covers. I can picture an aged gentleman smoking a pipe by the fireplace while eying it thoughtfully. (more)

Beyond Black Mesa fan film trailer looks pretty amazing

Saturday, July 10, 2010 9:38:58 AM GMT
Half-Life has proven itself to be a pretty popular universe for fans to set their fan films within -- but that doesn't mean we're not hungry for more. We recently got our fix from the trailer for Beyond Black Mesa, a short film chronicling the adventures of a small band of anti-Combine rebels. (more)

Did you really expect any less? Of course Halo: Reach is getting a full line of toys ... er, action figures, with which you can tastefully decorate your abode. Also, those of you attending the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con will find an "exclusive" figure only available there (or until it's decided that it gets sold everywhere else). We've got a full list of the wares just after the break, and pictures can be found over on Spawn.com. (more)

Hold your breath for Sniper: Ghost Warrior patch

Saturday, July 10, 2010 9:18:03 AM GMT
City Interactive has announced that a patch is headed to its recently released sneaky shooter, Sniper: Ghost Warrior. The patch is set to fix some GUI problems -- including multiplayer stats -- and will also fix some multiplayer bugs, like the ability to run outside the map. Multiplayer will also see the "Increased ability" for a player to hold his breath. Perhaps most importantly, the patch will fix a crashing issue on the PC version. (more)

Lebron James' move to the Miami Heat and how it'll affect NBA 2K11

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2447 days, 20 hours, 53 minutes ago
Saturday, July 10, 2010 9:14:50 AM GMT
Yesterday, it seemed like the only thing people could talk about on TV, the radio and Twitter was Lebron James. For the uninitiated, he's one of the greatest basketball stars playing today. Wrapping up a lengthy stay in Cleveland with the Cavaliers -- where he's been for the past seven years, since age 18 -- James had finally become a free agent, able to go wherever he wished. As we learned last night, he chose to join the Miami Heat. (more)

Gears of War, BioShock Added to GFWL Download

Saturday, July 10, 2010 9:12:21 AM GMT
If you haven't checked out Microsoft's Games for Windows Live service for the PC lately, you might be in for a little shock. When the stand-alone client was first introduced last year, only a few PC games were available to purchase and download including Viva Pinata, Fallout 3, Shadowrun and a few others. Now the service offers 49 games to download--but only 9 demos to test drive. Go figure. (more)

The results of a recent survey of iPad owners conducted by Resolve Market Research seems to indicate that the tablet is taking a notable chunk out of the handheld gaming industry share. According to Mashable, 28 percent of respondents claimed that one of their main uses for the iPad was gaming, while 23 percent said between the iPad, smartphones and portable gaming devices, the former is "the most enjoyable for playing games."

iPhone AT&T exclusivity lawsuit granted class-action certification, every AT&T iPhone customer included

Hey, remember that iPhone class-action lawsuit we poked around in a couple months ago and discovered Apple's lawyers confirming the original five year AT&T exclusivity agreement? Well, get ready to hear about it a lot more in the months to come, as the judge in the case has officially certified the case as a class action, meaning it now officially includes anyone who's ever bought an iPhone on AT&T.

iPhone 4 Cable Catches Fire, Burns Owner's Hand

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2447 days, 21 hours, 1 minute ago
Saturday, July 10, 2010 9:06:45 AM GMT
Boy Genius Report cites an AT&T insider who provided the following images along with a story of a user whose iPhone 4 caught fire. The incident appears to be either a problem with the USB port the device was plugged into, or the iPhone 4's dock connector port (an Apple Store confirmed that it was a result of "a defective USB port and not some sort of user error"). Judging from how melted the iPhone-end of the cable is, it looks as though the port on the phone was the problem. (more)
