Sad panda: Beyond Good & Evil 2 rumored to be canceled

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2585 days, 18 hours, 34 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:24:28 AM GMT
Word on the street is that Ubisoft's Beyond Good & Evil sequel has been canned. This attached to reports that the man behind the game, Michel Ancel is rumored to have left Ubisoft along with a "star developer" to form another studio in France. If true, Ancel hasn't updated his LinkedIn profile (the most important thing one can do when leaving an employer, of course), which still has him listed as a Creative Director at Ubisoft. (more)

Impressions: Call of Duty: Black Ops

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2585 days, 18 hours, 35 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:23:49 AM GMT
I know what you're thinking: Ugh, another Call of Duty. I'm not quite with you, but I do get it. Thankfully, what I saw of Treyarch's latest, Call of Duty: Black Ops, looks absolutely fantastic. More importantly, it looks to be different enough to actually stand out among all the other CoD titles. No, really. These impressions come from a session that was hands-off, mind you. But know that we did see quite a bit of game play, and our impressions will beat the hell out of watching a short teaser trailer ... (more)

Cool off with all these Hydro Thunder Hurricane videos

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2585 days, 18 hours, 37 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:21:25 AM GMT
In a move you don't see too often before a game's release, developer Vector Unit has provided us with six raw videos for Hydro Thunder Hurricane. We get to see multiple boats, tracks and all of the crazyness that can happen in the levels. This just goes to show that Vector feels very strong about what they got here with Hurricane. Instead of more fancy trailers, Vector is just putting the game out there uncut, which is a fantastic way of showing off your product in my opinion. (more)

Little League World Series Baseball 2010 hitting PS3, 360

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2585 days, 18 hours, 39 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:19:44 AM GMT
Activision must be seeing some kind of meaningful return on their Little League World Series Baseball franchise, because they're continuing to crank out the games. Today, they announced Little League World Series Baseball 2010, due out this July. But whereas the past two games in the franchise released on the Wii, an appropriate home for the kid-friendly game, this year's installment is coming out on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 -- and there's no Wii version in sight.

I am legend: Left 4 Dead 2's 'Last Man on Earth' mutation

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2585 days, 18 hours, 39 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:19:07 AM GMT
No co-op teammates, no AI bots, and no Common Infected. Just you as the only Survivor left racing toward the safehouse before Special Infected get a chance to jump you. This is the newest weekly mutation for Left 4 Dead 2, "Last Man on Earth." It sounds -- more than any other game mode before it -- super risky, which is exactly what Valve should be aiming for. In my mind, it can play out one of two ways: it's either going to be painfully frustrating or tense beyond all belief. (more)

PlayStation mini Stellar Attack doesn't look half bad

We rarely talk about PlayStation minis. Frankly, quite a lot of them look downright terrible, and I say that as someone who is -- generally speaking -- always looking for the positives, no matter how overwhelmingly apparent the more dreadful aspects are. (more)

inFamous 2 gets teased with a pair of eyes

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2585 days, 18 hours, 46 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:12:37 AM GMT
Having only relatively recently procured a PS3 inFamous was one of the games I missed out on playing, and it's also likely one of the games I'm not going back to play as it didn't sound that impressive. However, there was plenty of potential there and as a popular PS3 exclusive it was pretty much a foregone conclusion that a sequel was coming. Now that sequel has been teased. (more)

High Moon is not NOT making DLC for War for Cybertron

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2585 days, 18 hours, 49 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:09:28 AM GMT
War for Cybertron is being published by Activision, and Activision games love downloadable content. Stands to reason that War for Cybertron will have DLC, right? It's more or less inevitable, but High Moon Studios can't confirm it. Nor will the developer deny it, either, so it's basically a sure bet. "We are yet to reveal our DLC plan," explains director Matt Tieger. "We're still under wraps on that. That's not a no, it's just that I can't yet talk about our DLC. What I am allowed to say is that you co... (more)

Reserve Metroid: Other M, get snazzy 'art folio'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2585 days, 18 hours, 50 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:08:47 AM GMT
I'm not going to pretend that I know anything about "art folios," but I guess I'll be getting one with Metroid: Other M. You see, I've already reserved the game at GameStop. And by doing so, it guarantees I'll be receiving a "collectible art folio featuring 16 individual high-quality cards." Not sure how big this thing is, as the picture on GameStop.com could be misleading; I can't tell if they're the size of business cards or legal paper. Who cares; my guess is they'll feature some stunningly awesome M... (more)

New Xenoblade videos, now with more God-on-God violence

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2585 days, 18 hours, 50 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:08:09 AM GMT
I got seriously dissed by Dtoider Nothankyou in the last post I did about Xenoblade. He scooped me on these two videos, which are admittedly more interesting than the series of commercials for the game that I had just posted. You win this round, Nothankyou. I stand in awe of your videogame news scooping prowess. If you want to see the two soon-to-be-dead Gods that Colette freaked out over in this week's Bit Transmission, check out the video above. Past the jump, you'll find a vid that shows just how de... (more)

Unhappy AT&T Customer Shoots AT&T Employee

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2585 days, 19 hours, 11 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 6:47:07 AM GMT
Abraham Dickan, 79, was a very unhappy AT&T customer. Dickan had reportedly been abusive and angry toward employees at the New York Mills store on several occasions before. He had even had police reports filed against him for brandished weapons at the staff there, though Lt. Troy Little says he had no priors. (more)

Motorola Shadow slithers into Verizon's inventory database as MB810

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2585 days, 19 hours, 14 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 6:44:38 AM GMT
If the whole "smoke -> fire" adage proves true once more, it's looking like Verizon loyalists can expect to see a Shadow at least a few milliseconds before a CDMA iPhone. Following up on months of leaks and rumors, we've got yet another snippet of evidence pointing towards a VZW release of the so-called Motorola Shadow. Spotted here in the carrier's inventory database, the MB810 moniker aligns perfectly with that WiFi certification we saw earlier in the month. Combine that with the fact that this is defi... (more)

New Skype 2.0 app for the iPhone allows voice calls over 3G

Sunday, May 30, 2010 6:43:59 AM GMT
Plenty of other VoIP apps have managed to work in this functionality since Apple / AT&T started allowing it last year, but the official Skype app has been a notable holdout. Now, two months after Skype started doing 3G calls on Android with Verizon, there's a 2.0 version of the app for iPhone that brings voice calls over 3G at last. Mobile iPhone calls are free until August, after which you'll need a "mobile subscription." We're testing out the app as we write this and it seems to work about as well ... (more)

Review: Alpha Protocol

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2586 days, 16 hours, 42 minutes ago
Saturday, May 29, 2010 9:16:44 AM GMT
I have something of a reputation on staff for being the guy who takes in strays, the one who falls for the games that, while they may have a lot going for them, are in some way flawed. It's a fair representation and, considering it allows me to enjoy games that others may instantly write off, it's not something I'm necessarily ashamed of. (more)

Sure, there's a Blur demo on Xbox Live, but if you'd rather try out the Bizarre racer in a more public place -- or if you don't have an Xbox on which to test drive it -- select Best Buy stores will host in-store demos this Saturday and Sunday. You can check here to see if your local store is among the illustrious 200 to play host to these demos. (more)

"The team's work can speak for itself, so we're gonna jump right into the game. We're gonna take you to a weapons manufacturing facility deep behind enemy lines in the Soviet Union. This is WMD." After this brief introduction by Treyarch's Mark Lamia at an event in Los Angeles earlier this month, I was treated to a first look at the annualized, even-year Call of Duty production by Treyarch. Amidst all the legal posturing, accusations, departures, hires, and general unpleasantness (read all about it), Ca... (more)

While we may have found Alpha Protocol to be a "technical nightmare," it doesn't mean we should all just close the book on it. No, other outlets surely have opinions on Obsidian Entertainment's "Espionage RPG" and we'd be remiss if we didn't bring them into the discussion. Let's get to it! (more)

Interview: Call of Duty: Black Ops producer Dan Bunting

Saturday, May 29, 2010 8:24:09 AM GMT
Treyarch is no stranger to the Call of Duty franchise, having created Call of Duty 3 and World at War, but, up until it began work on this November's Call of Duty: Black Ops, it was stuck in the past -- World War II, that is. After getting our first look at its take on more modern combat, we spoke with Black Ops producer Dan Bunting to find out what to expect from the series' move into the Cold War and the world of deniable operations. Oh, and zombies -- we had to ask about those. (more)
