UFC Undisputed 2010 (PS3)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2707 days, 17 hours ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 8:18:53 PM GMT
If you're uncertain about the difference between full guard, half guard, and side control, you might think of UFC as merely a couple of barbarian-like men punching and kicking each other (and occasionally rolling around on the ground) until one of them falls unconscious. While that's not entirely untrue, there's really something of an art to most UFC fights that an untrained eye may not recognize. THQ and Yuke's second MMA effort, UFC Undisputed 2010, does an admirable job of translating this art into a ... (more)

Just in case you needed incentive to pick up Halo: Reach on launch day, Microsoft offers it in the form of this snazzy helmet, which should prove to separate the men from the men who were a day late come the day after launch.

Street Fighter II or Street Fighter IV, Which Does Daigo Like Better?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2708 days, 5 hours, 44 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:35:32 AM GMT
"SFII holds a very special place in my heart. It was the very game that introduced me to the world of Street Fighter," Daigo tells Kotaku. "I know Street Fighter IV will be another important game for me in my gaming history. It is the title which gave me new inspiration after 3-4 years in a rut and the title I played through to reach the top and got the sponsorship. In fact, it is becoming a very special game for me in a whole different way from SFII, but both are very important for me." (more)

PlayStation Move Behind Gran Turismo 5 Delay?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2708 days, 5 hours, 46 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:33:27 AM GMT
Having let slip themselves that the game will support the PlayStation Move peripheral, it seems Sony's decision to implement motion controls into Gran Turismo 5 is the reason for the game's lengthy delay. According to a "source close to Sony", trade site MCV reports that a decision by Sony to put both motion controls and 3D - which we thought they already had - into the final version of game is the reason Gran Turismo 5, which should already be out by now, is not.

Preview: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:30:30 AM GMT
At Namco Bandai's Pre-E3 event last week, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West took my by surprise. I knew of the upcoming title from the makers of Heavenly Sword, but I had no idea it was so pretty until I set eyes on it in action! Ninja Theory's unconventional and original adventure title is a stunner in both the looks, gameplay and story departments, though. Seriously, the whole title shines so much, and from all angles, that I feel silly for not paying http://bulk.destructoid.cbetter attention. I know bette... (more)

A majority of 7-Eleven stores in the US and Canada will include various redeemable codes in products such as Slurpees, Big Gulps and a lot of the other crap for Zynga games such as YoVille, FarmVille and Mafia Wars.

The Human Centipede is now a game

Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:27:23 AM GMT
A few weeks ago I was both fortunate and unfortunate enough to attend a screening of The Human Centipede (First Sequence). You see, Human Centipede needs to be seen, but the things you see in it cannot be unseen. It's a movie about a mad scientist who surgeically attaches three people ass-to-mouth in order to create a human centipede. That's the trailer above. Yes, the doctor is one of the greatest horror villains ever. (more)

Legendary Pictures, the production company behind blockbuster films like 300 and Clash of the Titans, has picked up the film rights for the Mass Effect franchise. This would lead one to suspect the long-suspected: Someday, somewhere, there may be a Mass Effect film. If they can do Asteroids, this ought to be a snap. (more)

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 trailer is epic

We could go on about all of the badass ninja action going on in the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 trailer above, but we just can't get past how amazing it all looks in HD. It's like this trailer opened our skull and scooped out our brain, only to leave a drooling husk of a human being in its wake. We guess it's kinda impressive we managed to write this post. (more)

Blur's French TV spots are far from feminist

Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:17:30 AM GMT
Look, we're not experts in the way of marketing things to the French, but we're pretty sure the advertising for Blur is all kinds of wrong. Seemingly tapping the region's most beautiful women to represent in-game power-ups, arguing their superiority over their peers, each spot concludes with the ladies throwing down in a faux race -- which is more an excuse for them to show off skin than to show off the game. Have you ever had to hit so many buttons while playing a racing game before? Yeah, we didn't thi... (more)

If you live in Los Angeles, and are at least 18 years old, and you know your way around a God of War game, and you're capable of signing a Non-Disclosure agreement, then this is one heck of a coincidence. Sony is currently looking for people matching that very description to come check out Kratos' next handheld adventure: God of War: Ghost of Sparta, this Thursday. (more)
