In case you didn't know, Insomniac Games folks are rad

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2638 days, 3 hours, 58 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 01, 2010 8:07:25 AM GMT
When Insomniac Games announced its deal with EA Partners to release a new IP on multiple consoles, it was a win-win situation for gamers. A great development team working on a potentially great new franchise that can be played on more than one platform? This is bad how? Some fans were more excited than other, like one who went out of his way to record a congratulatory message on YouTube, one that was basically a video love letter to the developer. This is the same fan who also baked the developer a huge... (more)

War for Cybertron and Hasbro = BFFs

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2638 days, 3 hours, 59 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 01, 2010 8:05:59 AM GMT
Transformers: War for Cybertron is a game based on a TV show based on toys. Hasbro, the franchise creator, loved War for Cybertron so much that it has adopted the game as official canon, and has also commissioned a set of toys for the game. So, soon there will be toys based on a game based on a TV show based on toys. Is that too meta for you? (more)

Is 'Kingdoms' Crytek's MMO or something else entirely?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2638 days, 4 hours, 2 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 01, 2010 8:03:49 AM GMT
If LinkedIn profiles are anything to bet the farm on, German game developer Crytek may be working on a massively multiplayer online title. At the very least, two employees directly mention it in their profiles, one writing that he is actively working on the infrastructure for "an MMO online game," the other (an ex-employee) having once mentioned he's working on a "Not announced Online MMO FPS." (The latter profile has since been updated to remove that specific reference.) (more)

VC in Brief: Wild Guns (SNES)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2638 days, 4 hours, 26 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 01, 2010 7:39:45 AM GMT
What better way to celebrate Memorial Day than by mowing down countless waves of evil henchmen and robots? Natsume's Wild Guns is a great arcade experience that both fans of shooters and crazy interpretations of historical events can get behind. Seriously, it's not a bad way to spend $8 (or hours of your time). (more)

If you're one of those cautious, try-before-you-buy types, you may want to check out the recently posted beta application for Atari's online racer, Test Drive Unlimited 2. It's pretty much your basic application: Name, gender, address, computer specs, which consoles you own, how long you spend playing games each week, and detailed report on your sexual history over the past eighteen months.

If you're looking to recreate some of the parlor games played in Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar's store has been updated to include a wide variety of instruments you can use to do so with the utmost authenticity. Now available on the store are a handful of "Collector's Packs," which include Rockstar-branded playing cards, dice, TNT-shaped candles and "Eradicator Soap," which promises to be "Tough on Blood and Manure." We certainly hope those two aren't frequently a problem for you. (more)

Grab your bomber jackets, folks. On June 2, Snoopy: Flying Ace soars to the Xbox Live Arcade for 800 ($10), and if you recall from our previous hands-on experience with the game, it's something we're looking forward to. In Snoopy: Flying Ace, players can take on the role of the famous Peanuts crew or use their own Avatar to pilot fully customizable aircraft. (more)

Gamer Beats Super Mario Bros. With Dance Pad

During my early years, beating Super Mario Bros. to save the Princess was a huge achievement. After the ordeal, the victorious gamer often had some sore thumbs from the d-pad and button. Now decades later, a gamer has shown that he's able to beat the game just by using his feet… on a dance pad. (more)

Does Unreal Still Look Unreal? Not Anymore!

Tuesday, June 01, 2010 6:57:50 AM GMT
With the rapid pace of hardware and software advancement, games keep looking better and better. There's no question that games from previous decades look like silly puppet shows compared to what we get to see from Crysis, especially in light of this fantasy mod. It's startling, then, to look back on this cover of Next-Generation magazine and see it declare that, "Yes, this is an actual PC game screenshot ." (more)

PlayStation 3's first 3D title updates coming June 10th to Japan

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2638 days, 5 hours, 9 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 01, 2010 6:56:44 AM GMT
Good news / bad news, folks. First with the smiles: PlayStation 3's first 3D-enabling updates are due out on June 10th for downloadable titles Super Stardust HD, WipEout HD, and Pain. The first two games get the added dimension for gratis, but Pain lovers (who should be accustomed by now to its abundant premium add-ons) will need to fork over ¥300 (approximately $3.28) for the benefit. The other stickler is that these updates are so far only announced for Japan -- and by merit of a Bravia promotion, Euro... (more)

Prince Of Persia: LEGO Movie Looks Like A Game To Me

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2640 days, 4 hours, 36 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:29:46 AM GMT
To coincide with the film's release, LEGO has let loose this short animated film, recreating the basic plot of the movie with minifigs. It's narrated by star Jake Gylenhaal. While serving primarily as a promotion for the LEGO toys based on the movie, if I'd told you this was a trailer for a LEGO: Prince of Persia game, would you have believed me? Course you would have. The cheeky facial impressions, the animation, even the fact it uses custom action scenes not found in the actual movie, it all looks jus... (more)

Football Contenders Try for the Look of a Winner

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2640 days, 4 hours, 37 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:28:33 AM GMT
Madden isn't the only way to play video game football. It is the only way to play NFL football. Other games must invent teams, and their names and logos have often reinforced an outsider, expansion or even knockoff look. This was a disappointment of Tecmo Bowl Throwback. The teams had no nicknames. You were left to infer them from the helmet logos. Cincinnati Fists? Green Bay Wheat? Houston Viruses? The color schemes were painstakingly nonreferential to any recognizable NFL color pattern, past or presen... (more)

Here's what H.A.W.X. 2 looks like

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2640 days, 4 hours, 38 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:27:18 AM GMT
Earlier this month, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2 was announced. Besides carrying the same ridiculous name as its predecessor, little about the flight game was mentioned. Jump forward to the present, where we now have a boatload of information. As someone who didn't play much of H.A.W.X., here's what seems most interesting to me as far as the sequel is concerned: mid-air refueling, which sounds both frustrating and somehow cool; controllable UAVs; and there's now taking off and landing as well.

NBA Live name no more, now called NBA Elite

The NBA Live name had a good run, I guess. But it seems Electronic Arts is retiring the name, according to the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine, who is saying the game will be called EA Sports NBA Elite 11. When asked about the mouthful of a title, an EA Sports spokesperson did all but come out and confirm the name change. (more)
