Modder transmits Wii games to iPod touch, which isn't really as fun as it sounds (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2588 days, 22 hours, 21 minutes ago
Thursday, May 27, 2010 7:05:24 AM GMT
Three years ago, a certain obiwan22222 wowed us when he played Wii on his PSP (with a little help from Sony's LocationFree technology). For his next trick, our man has done the same thing on an iPod touch. But wait, you ask -- is there a LocationFree client for iPhone / iPod touch? We don't think so, so we've pinged him for an explanation. He's being extremely tight-lipped about it all, saying only that 1) this is not fake, 2) he got rid of the five second lag, and 3) all will be revealed "soon enough" (... (more)

Firefox Home 'coming soon' to iPhone, will sync with desktop browser

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2588 days, 22 hours, 45 minutes ago
Thursday, May 27, 2010 6:41:28 AM GMT
Continuous client functionality, you say? Sounds like Mozilla might be just what the doctor ordered. The company has announced that its upcoming Firefox Home app is coming soon to the iPhone. The program will sync up with your desktop client so that you can go mobile with all your browsing history, bookmarks and "the set of tabs from [your] most recent browser session" going along for the ride.

Microsoft Shake-Up Tied To Xbox Timeline

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2589 days, 21 hours, 20 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 26, 2010 8:06:42 AM GMT
The departure of two key men involved in the Xbox 360 from Microsoft won't cause major changes in the Xbox division, a source close to Microsoft told Kotaku today. But the timing of the next steps for the Xbox brand was a factor. (more)

E3? Road Trip!

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2589 days, 21 hours, 21 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 26, 2010 8:05:32 AM GMT
No, it's not us. We fly. This is Infinite Lives: The Road to E3, a small-time documentary about four normal dudes who drive across American to attend E3, the industry's biggest show of the year. It can get a little grating at times, but at others, it looks to be a surprisingly charming road trip for nerds, helping bridge the gap between people who can only experience E3 via their computers and those who do get to attend, but are too busy and tired to enjoy i (more)

The Art Of Uncharted 2 Review: Glossy, Glossy

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2589 days, 21 hours, 22 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 26, 2010 8:04:47 AM GMT
There are video game art books, then there are video game art books. Most fall into the first category. Uncharted 2's is a proud member of the latter. See, most things that call themselves "art books" are nothing of the sort. They're cheap collections of in-game renders and promo art, slapped together in a poor-quality binding and rushed onto the market to make a cheap buck. (more)

Xenoblade ads are packed with epic RPG Wii-ness

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2589 days, 21 hours, 41 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 26, 2010 7:45:29 AM GMT
We just wrapped recording the latest episode of Bit Transmission, and the show had more than a few weird moments. I was particularly shocked by Colette Bennett's genuine joy for the upcoming Wii RPG Xenoblade. Colette loves her PS3 and her HD and her Blu-rays, and she also has a history of feeling genuine pain when forced to squint at the crappy jaggies of yesteryear. For a game like Xenoblade to get her excited, it must be pretty special. My guess is that the soundtrack, put together by several renown... (more)

Scratch: The Ultimate DJ coming to iPhone, iPad and PC

Wednesday, May 26, 2010 7:44:38 AM GMT
Numark Industries, manufacturer of DJ equipment and partner on Scratch: Ultimate DJ, has announced that versions of the title are currently in development for iPhone, iPad and PC. They are expected to be released later this year. Interestingly, the press release makes no mention whatsoever of the long-awaited Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game. Those were originally planned to release last year but, due to some legal wrangling and a change in development teams. (more)

Keyboards teased for Rock Band 3 in Green Day demo

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2589 days, 21 hours, 53 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 26, 2010 7:33:32 AM GMT
Dookieheads (that's what Green Day fans are colloquially referred to, right?) who downloaded the two-track Green Day: Rock Band demo from Xbox Live Marketplace today (gold subscribers only) found a little bonus waiting for them when they exited the demo: The teaser image posted above. Alongside the series' four iconic instrument logos is a whole new symbol, which seems to indicate that keyboards (or perhaps ... keytars?) will be added to Rock Band 3. (more)

Review: Bit.Trip Runner

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2589 days, 22 hours, 10 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 26, 2010 7:16:08 AM GMT
Bit.Trip Runner is profoundly difficult, as anyone who has played a previous Bit.Trip game would guess. It's probably one of the hardest games I've ever played, and in a way that most developers don't dare to make their games. Basically, if you already have high blood pressure or a short fuse, you should stay far away from Bit.Trip Runner. And if you don't, you should wear the Wii wrist strap while playing. Not because it uses motion controls, but because you'll occasionally get the impulse to throw so... (more)

If you've ever found yourself in the proverbial club (perhaps with a bottle full of bub), then you may be familiar with Pentavision's DJ Max -- a Beatmania-like music-rhythm series with some of the most intense gameplay in the genre. Today, PM Studios has announced it will publish DJ Max Portable 3 in the US. (more)

MAG patch 1.06 coming in June, Combat Medics rejoice

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2589 days, 22 hours, 12 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 26, 2010 7:14:32 AM GMT
One of the most frustrating things for us players of MAG's most altruistic self-defined class, the Combat Medic, are those times when we make a heroic dash through raging crossfire to reach a downed ally, only to accidentally heal ourselves instead. Even worse: those times when we're knocking on death's door, but accidentally heal an adjacent, barely wounded friendly. It's happened to all of us -- but thanks to the v1.06 patch due out "sometime next month," according to the game's official blog, it will ... (more)

Marvelous focuses on PSP development in fiscal 2011

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2589 days, 22 hours, 17 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 26, 2010 7:09:27 AM GMT
It shouldn't come as much of a surprise, given the company's recent executive pay cuts and low sales figures, that Marvelous Entertainment is looking to cut costs in fiscal 2011 by reducing its lineup of games slightly. Siliconera points out a slide from the company's latest earnings report (Japanese PDF downloadable at the bottom of the window) that shows only ten releases for the period between April 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011. That's down two from the previous year. The biggest move comes from the DS... (more)

Wait, you're telling us that you still haven't hit 10th Prestige? Is this some sort of joke? Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been out for like, a hundred years. Whatever the reason for your pathetic, amateurish ranking, you can give yourself a boost by playing during this three-day Memorial Day weekend, when Infinity Ward will be offering double experience across all of the game's cornucopia of platforms.

The Witcher 2 still planned for consoles, CD Projekt says

Console gamers anxious to traverse CD Projekt's fictional land in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, fear not. Confirming console plans on Facebook, CD Projekt assures us porting the game is still very much on the table. "There are some rumors about us leaving The Witcher-2-on-consoles idea," the Facebook post reads. "That's pretty weird, as we want and plan to release the game on consoles & nothing has changed in this matter. We're still sure, that Geralt & company has something to offer both -... (more)

Wednesday, May 26, 2010 6:56:36 AM GMT
This latest Alpha Protocol trailer embodies the importance of impromptu solutions to unexpected problems. It shows us that for every ambush, there's an escape; for every system, there's an override; and for every chicken nugget, there's an appropriate dipping sauce. Okay, we contributed that last nugget of wisdom, but that doesn't make it any less sage! (more)

Hands-on: Crackdown 2's first missions

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2589 days, 22 hours, 35 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 26, 2010 6:51:28 AM GMT
In the beginning of Crackdown 2, the objective is simple: The Agency has developed a weapon called the "Sunburst Defense System," designed to quickly rid Pacific City of its mutated inhabitants, or "freaks," by melting them vampire-style with artificial sunlight. In order to locate the freak hot zones (various underground breeding areas for the infected humans), Agents must activate a series of beacons to triangulate the precise positions onto which the Sunburst weapon should be deployed.

Motorola Shadow glimpsed in the wild: 4.1-inch screen, 8MP camera, OMAP3630 processor?

Leave it to the very same poster who teased the Motorola Shadow's Getting Started manual, wnrussell of Howard Forums, to provide a pretty clear shot of the device itself -- yep, that's a HDMI out port -- and reveal some purported specs. Here's the claimed technical details: 4.1-inch screen, TI OMAP 3630 processor (a 720MHz ARM Cortex A8), 8GB internal storage, 8 megapixel camera. Yeah, we can buy all that, especially since he's clearly got the device in hand -- so now it's up to Verizon to let us know wh... (more)

The mouse ain't dead...yet: five of the best mice reviewed

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2589 days, 22 hours, 40 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 26, 2010 6:46:57 AM GMT
For over thirty years the computer mouse ruled over the kingdom of computer navigation. Despite losing its rubber ball and cord over the years, the peripheral lived a long, full life of being pushed across desks and tables getting the cursor where it needed to go. It died today from neglect as it was abandoned en masse for touchpads and touch-based computers. (more)
