Backbreaker video gets all defensive

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2647 days, 21 hours, 52 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:11:55 AM GMT
Having educated us in the ways of offense, 505 Games has released a new video to acquaint digital linesmen with Backbreaker's defensive game. Much like the offense game, playing D in Backbreaker uses flicks of the right analog stick to perform various actions, whether they be flying tackles, bull rushes or sneaky evasive spins. (more)

NintendoWare Weekly: Art Style Light Trax, Viral Survival, Metal Torrent

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2647 days, 21 hours, 56 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:08:05 AM GMT
There hasn't been a new Art Style game on WiiWare since October 2008 -- they've all gone to DSiWare since that platform launched. Today, the series returns to Wii, in much the same way as it started: with a fancy update to a GBA Bit Generations game. It's accompanied by a compelling, odd-looking game from NIS America. (more)

Hands-on: Puzzle Quest 2

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2647 days, 21 hours, 57 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:06:48 AM GMT
"So would you call this a return to form?" I asked Infinite Interactive's Steve Fawkner right before I picked up the controller to play Puzzle Quest 2. "Yes, very much so," he replied. Fawkner isn't shy about admitting that Puzzle Quest Galactrix deserved a few of the lumps it got from fans ("They didn't like it when minigames blocked progress on the main game"), and so when his team set out to create a full-fledged sequel to the gem-matching, role-playing hit, they wanted a good mix of updated gameplay ...

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2647 days, 21 hours, 59 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:04:40 AM GMT
Treasure knows its shmups, and this week's Nintendo Channel content you just have to see is none other than a Developer's Voice for Sin & Punishment: Star Successor. It's full of interesting behind-the-scenes stuff, like weighing the pros and cons of different control schemes and highlighting some multiplayer stuff. Seriously, if you're going to watch one thing, boot up your Wii and watch this. (more)

Majesco's Babysitting Mama includes your very own baby

The "WiiWaa" doll introduced us to the concept of cramming a Wiimote into a doll's mouth and using that to interact with a game. Majesco is bringing that same idea to a much more mainstream game: the previously trademarked Babysitting Mama. (more)

Dragon Ball Origins 2 demo on Nintendo Channel next week

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2647 days, 22 hours, 3 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:00:37 AM GMT
For all the time we spent expressing our admiration of Game Republic's Dragon Ball: Origins (admiration that will probably also apply to the sequel, though we don't really know yet), Namco Bandai's latest effort will be a lot more effective in convincing people to try it out before its June 22 release.

2011 Audi A8 gets factory-installed wireless hotspot option

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2647 days, 22 hours, 4 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 6:59:55 AM GMT
We'd heard that the 2011 Audi A8 would be getting a UMTS modem in mid-2010 to help with things like Google Earth, and it looks like Audi has now delivered that and more -- it's just announced that the car is the first anywhere to be available with a factory-installed WLAN hotspot option. That will apparently let you either drop your SIM card into the car's on-board system or pair your phone with it via Bluetooth, and then share wireless internet access with up to eight WiFi-enabled devices at speeds up ...

Just in case you were wondering if Steve Jobs would manage to show up to WWDC 2010 and totally party on the Apple faithful... yes. As you would expect, Steve will be rocking the keynote address on Monday, June 7th at 10AM Pacific. Afterwards you'll be wondering where you're going to find the money for that new iPhone.

Dead Skate: Code Unlocks Isaac and Board

Monday, May 24, 2010 7:20:37 AM GMT
Seen this screen on Skate 3's Facebook page? You might be wondering how to get Dead Space's Isaac Clark into the game. No, he's not DLC, there's a code for that, actually. Go to the Cheats section of the Extras menu in Skate 3 and plug in "deadspacetoo" and he's yours. You also get a futuro-skateboard, but it's not transferable to other skaters, it's Ike's and Ike's alone. (more)

Politicians. Actors. Singers, too. What do they have in common with Xbox Japan mascot Sanrokumaru? They have all thrown out the first pitch at baseball games. Sanrokumaru stars in a new series of TV ads in which he and the rest of the "Xbox Mission Department" attempts to secure titles like the new Virtual-On for the Xbox 360. (more)

Ever have those days where, try as you might, you just can't pull yourself together? Where you work as hard as you can to get something done, but what you really need is a friend who has got your back and is willing to pull you through the hard stuff? That's kinda sorta maybe like the recently announced “Onslaught” mode for DICE's Battlefield: Bad Company 2. A co-op multiplayer mode, it is definitely what the doctor ordered for team-based empowerment. Gone are those nasty human-controlled enemies and pe... (more)

Super Mario Galaxy had one of the most delightful, transportive soundtracks of any game in the current console generation, with themes both new and familiar set to a sweeping orchestral score. To show off the sequel's equally impressive accompaniment, a YouTube channel purportedly belonging to composer Mahito Yokota has uploaded every single track from Super Mario Galaxy 2 onto a single playlist.

Crackdown 2 gets ultra-violent prequel cartoon

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2648 days, 21 hours, 57 minutes ago
Monday, May 24, 2010 7:06:54 AM GMT
You know what violent video gaming franchise we always thought would make an excellent Saturday morning cartoon? Crackdown. We're thinking of a modern day GI Joe series, with rugged super soldiers, death-defying acrobatic feats, the occasional car chase and a helpful PSA at the end of each episode. However, Machinima.com recently posted the first episode in a real cartoon series based on Crackdown 2, and ... well, let's just say they went in a much different direction with it. A much bloodier direction. (more)

EA and Canadian Hockey League ink 4-year partnership

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2648 days, 21 hours, 59 minutes ago
Monday, May 24, 2010 7:04:17 AM GMT
A recent EA Sports press release has announced that the developer's upcoming hockey title, NHL 11, will be the first game to feature the teams and players of all three divisions in the Canadian Hockey League. The CHL is a "development" league, featuring players between the ages of 16 and 20, many of which go on to play for major teams in the NHL. We might go so far as to call it NHL Jr., if we didn't think every one of its players could beat us within an inch of our lives with little to no effort. (more)

Machinima.com creates canonical expansion to Dragon Age: Origins

Jonesing for more stories set in the grim Dragon Age universe, but don't have the patience to wait for the game's next expansion? Machinima.com recently produced a canonical miniseries set in the days following Origins' ending, and tells the story of Kristoff, another Gray Warden which players encounter in the Awakenings DLC. Considering the miniseries is titled "Warden's Fall," we seriously doubt things are going to turn out all roses and sunshine for him. (more)

We understand the value of a good fan just as much as the next guy, whether said fan is reading our humble video game news site, or keeping us cool in the humid summer months. In Bizarre Creations' arcadey racer Blur, they're even more valuable, serving as the player's main form of character progression. In addition, fans will offer a few bonuses which will pop up in the middle of each race, including Fan Runs, Fan Demands and Fan Targets. (more)

Rumor: J Allard leaving Microsoft due to Courier cancellation

Monday, May 24, 2010 6:58:50 AM GMT
ZDNet reports that "a pretty reliable tipster" has informed them that J Allard, Chief Experience Officer of Microsoft and overseer of the development and launch of the Xbox 360, is "on sabbatical and is unlikely to return to Microsoft." According to the tipster, Allard was upset by the sudden, surreptitious cancellation of the Microsoft Courier, which Allard has frequently talked up since it was first revealed last September. (more)
