NPD: Console and PC gaming on the rise, portable gaming down

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2609 days, 18 hours, 20 minutes ago
Saturday, May 29, 2010 8:22:58 AM GMT
In its yearly online study of gaming habits for consumer panel members age two and older, the NPD says that this year shows a nine percent increase in console gaming over last year, whereas PC gaming saw an increase of six percent from those polled. Portable gaming didn't fare as well, seeing a sharp decline: 16 percent, despite previous evidence of portable gaming becoming increasingly popular among younger gamers. (more)

Video: FEAR 3's Paxton Fettel kills things with his mind

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2609 days, 18 hours, 21 minutes ago
Saturday, May 29, 2010 8:22:02 AM GMT
So it looks like the team at Warner Bros is sticking with the live-action ads for F.E.A.R. 3. Apparently it's just a thing it's doing, so you'd best get used to it. Anyway, the latest trailer for F.E.A.R.3 is all about telekinetic bad boy, Paxton Fettel. The actual gameplay segments of the trailer show off some of Fettel's abilities, including telepathic control of enemy soldiers. He can also lift soldiers in the air, making them easy targets for F.E.A.R.'s perennial protagonist, Point Man. (more)

Crave announces bowling for Natal

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2609 days, 18 hours, 41 minutes ago
Saturday, May 29, 2010 8:02:12 AM GMT
We're sorry if the above headline is misleading, but we feel we should inform you of two things. One, Crave has not announced a game show entitled "Bowling for Natal," so don't expect to see everyday schlubs competing for a Natal on daytime TV anytime soon. Two, what Crave has announced, according to Multiplayer, is a bowling game that will support Microsoft's Project Natal. (more)

Latest Left 4 Dead 2 mutation: more like Left 1 Dead

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2609 days, 18 hours, 42 minutes ago
Saturday, May 29, 2010 8:01:33 AM GMT
Valve's latest "mutation" gametype for the Left 4 Dead 2 "The Passing" DLC takes three survivors out of the equation. "Last Man on Earth" is a single-player mode in which the player is the only Survivor left in the world, and must face nothing but Special Infected without the help of other players or even bots. In other words, it might has well have been called "The Player is Murdered Immediately." (more)

Prince Of Persia: The Sands of Time Movie Review

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2609 days, 18 hours, 48 minutes ago
Saturday, May 29, 2010 7:55:05 AM GMT
As the most high-profile video game movie since 1993's Super Mario Bros., Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time has a lot riding on it. Which for a movie like this, is a little unfair. See, being a Disney movie, with a big budget, big stars and big names behind the scenes, I think people may go into this hoping that, perhaps, Hollywood would finally make a great movie based on a video game. Something gamers can point to and say, yes, this is what we want when Tinseltown comes knocking. (more)

What Are You Playing This Weekend?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2609 days, 18 hours, 49 minutes ago
Saturday, May 29, 2010 7:54:13 AM GMT
This long Memorial Day weekend, I'll be asking myself the following question: how much better or worse is this than Split/Second? Yep, this weekend shall be a Blur. Of course, there are still plenty of strangers to befriend, wild mountain cats to slay and flowers to be picked in my copy of Red Dead Redemption. Drunken cowboys will be knocked out cold as I fiddle with those many unlocked achievements in Rockstar's dusty open world action game. Anyone up for a little Red Dead multiplayer this weekend? (more)

UFC Undisputed 2010 Review: A Light Heavyweight Rematch

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2609 days, 18 hours, 51 minutes ago
Saturday, May 29, 2010 7:51:56 AM GMT
No game took an emerging sport to the mainstream in its first edition like UFC 2009 Undisputed did last year. But once you join sports gaming's A-list, even in your rookie year, you have to start making sequels. THQ, known for delivering annually on the WWE Smackdown series, poured development into UFC Undisputed 2010 to deliver a second game with mixed martial arts' top stars and branding, and cement its position as the definitive MMA publisher, since later this year it will no longer be the only one. ...

PlayStation 2 title God of War and God of War II were released on a single Blu-ray disc for the PS3 and feature smoother graphics and a faster frame rate.

Man Spends Six Months Plotting Murder Of Counter-Strike Rival

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2609 days, 18 hours, 54 minutes ago
Saturday, May 29, 2010 7:49:03 AM GMT
A Counter-Strike player in France has spent six months plotting a revenge attack against a man who beat him in an in-game knife fight. His eventual revenge was not in-game. 20 year-old Julien Barreaux, from Cambrai, had his Counter-Strike character "knifed" in a game late last year against another man, known only as "Mikhael". Enraged at this blight against his talents, Barreaux spent six months tracking him down in the real world. (more)

Nielsen recently conducted a survey of 700 potential PS3 owners aged 7-54. The research firm asked these people why they were considering buying a PS3 and the top three reasons they received in response were the Blu-ray player, the recent price drop and the games available. (more)

This Could Be The Most Portable Computer Ever

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2609 days, 19 hours, 6 minutes ago
Saturday, May 29, 2010 7:37:15 AM GMT
Before anything can claim the "most" title, it has to exist. The eRoll remains a figment of designer Dragan Trencevski's imagination, and the concept isn't exactly new. Anyone remember that Mars movie Red Planet (the one with Carrie-Anne Moss)? Such a contraption was used as a portable X-Ray to determine the injuries on a felled astronaut, with the built-in touchscreen allowing easy manipulation. (more)

When the iPad launched, Steve Jobs announced that it would not support Flash and many sites and newspaper publishers rushed to create either an iPad friendly website or a separate app for the Apple tablet. However, despite the fact that some were more than willing to dump Flash for Apple, other companies have no intention of doing anything of the sort. (more)

If you thought that Apple's foray into the world of home entertainment died with the last iteration of the Apple TV, you're quite wrong. A tip we've received -- which has been confirmed by a source very close to Apple -- details the outlook for the next version of the Apple TV, and it's a doozy. According to our sources, this project has been in the works long before Google announced its TV solution, and it ties much more closely into Apple's mobile offerings. The new architecture of the device will be b... (more)

Motorola Droid 2 found in Verizon system, keyboard makes an online cameo? (update: specs)

While we've got no way to confirm at the moment, here's some proverbial food for thought. A friendly reader last night published in our comment thread for the two rumored Verizon-bound Motorola devices with the above picture (subtitles added by us), claiming the bottom image is the Droid 2's upgraded QWERTY keyboard. The story goes that his friend had one but no other information is currently available -- the font on the keys is identical, and the mic icon on the bottom left is distinctively Android. If ...

In Mafia Wars, that is. 7-Eleven products like Slurpees and Big Bites now come with virtual items for games like FarmVille, Mafia Wars and YoVille, a chance to score a free Candy Stand or Sleek Bulletproof Vest.

Oh, I have to write more? Shoot. Okay, I will elaborate on why this is, but just know that there won’t be some kind of surprise ending at the conclusion of this feature. The “yes” may turn into a “YES!”, but, other than the enlarged typing, my opinion will not be swayed. NOT BE SWAYED, I TELL YOU! In our perfect 10 review of Super Mario Galaxy 2, fellow editor and object of my man crush Dale North excitedly called the Wii sequel the “Best Mario Game Ever!” Obviously I agree with this.
