posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2748 days, 9 hours, 45 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 12, 2010 12:29:32 AM GMT
Having made its WiiWare debut with last summer's "spot the difference" game 5 Spots Party, Cosmonaut Games is preparing to take the plunge again, this time with a decidedly more ambitious title. Due this summer, Dive: The Medes Islands Secret is a 10-level undersea exploration game featuring "2D underwater puzzle landscapes" and the Metroid-like ability to access new areas in already-visited locales after obtaining upgrades. Check out the first screens below as you wait to live the life aquatic. (more)

Puzzle Quest 2 coming to DS June 22

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2748 days, 9 hours, 47 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 12, 2010 12:26:57 AM GMT
We know there have been plenty of pretenders to the Puzzle Quest throne, many developed/perpetrated by developer Infinite Interactive itself. But do you still remember? Is there a place in your memory for those seemingly countless hours you spent peering into your DS, hoping to line up enough red gems to get off that last fire spell before you were overwhelmed by a giant spider? Do you remember? More importantly: Have the countless clones and wannabes completely dulled your desire for a return to the wor... (more)

American Super Mario Galaxy 2 commercial debuts

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2748 days, 9 hours, 49 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 12, 2010 12:25:24 AM GMT
Pfft, "debuts?" More like soars across a whimsical landscape directly into our hearts. We were pressed for space, okay? Maybe that's why we're so keen to stare at yet another snippet of Super Mario Galaxy 2 -- if we watch this commercial (embedded after the break) carefully, the perpetually cheerful plumber might impart some lessons on space usage. Where does he find all that breathing room? (more)

Fable 3 art team working on a menagerie of animals

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2748 days, 9 hours, 52 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 12, 2010 12:22:34 AM GMT
You may not have been too disappointed by Fable 2's lack of animals (filthy, stinking animals), but Lionhead's Lead Artist John McCormack was, and he tells Beauty of Games that he's making up for it with the next game. "The lack of animals in the Fable franchise is always something that has bothered me," he says, and so in Fable 3, "we've built bats, crows, rabbits, ducks, robins, vultures, lizards, rats, butterflies, moths, insect swarms, dogs, fireflies, geese and we even started on a cow."

Study: Americans spent $25.3 billion on games in 2009

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2748 days, 9 hours, 53 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 12, 2010 12:20:48 AM GMT
US consumers of those newfangled video games apparently spent $25.3 billion on them in 2009, according to the Today's Gamers Survey by Newzoo and TNS. If this study seems vaguely familiar, it's likely because there was a similar report released on massively multiplayer games a couple months ago, which found that Americans spent $3.8 billion on MMOs during 2009. Typically, data we see comes from retailers, but this survey was conducted using 13,000 respondents, aged 8 and up, who were "carefully selected ... (more)

Backbreaker's running game looks for the gap

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2748 days, 9 hours, 56 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 12, 2010 12:18:15 AM GMT
Backbreaker continues to promise a little innovation in the football genre, even as it tries to take on the mighty Madden juggernaut. In this new Training Camp video, you can check out the running game and how it works. In theory, it sounds great -- just use the right stick in an intuitive way to bump, stiff arm, and hurdle your opponents in the constant drive towards the end zone. In practice, though, it's tough to see how well the game will determine the gestures, like comparing a simple hurdle (pushin... (more)

In an interview on Saudi television, the marketing manager for Microsoft's entertainment and devices division for the region revealed Project Natal's launch window: October 2010. GamerTagRadio has the clip of Microsoft's Syed Bilal Tariq saying, "We will be in a position to confirm the date after E3, which is in June.

Blur multiplayer beta slams on the brakes

Ladies and gentlemen ... turn off your engines. Take the keys out of the ignition, and place them calmly on your living room end table. The Blur multiplayer beta has come to a full stop in anticipation of the game's May 25 release. We know you're worried about your sharpened driving skills dulling within the 14-day interim. Might we suggest driving recklessly while shooting devastating power-ups at other cars ... in real life? Sure, that might be physically impossible (not to mention illegal), but that's... (more)

Play as the 'other' Nier in this week's DLC, 'The World of Recycled Vessel'

Wednesday, May 12, 2010 12:03:13 AM GMT
New DLC for Nier, expected to be available tomorrow, adds 15 new stages, new costumes for Kaine, Emil, and Nier, and new Shades, as part of a new time-traveling scenario. Perhaps more importantly, it also enables players to control the young version of Nier from the Japan-only, PS3-only Nier Replicant, effectively removing the single difference between the two versions.

Bethesda is releasing a Fallout: New Vegas package worth squirreling away in your bomb shelter. The Collector's Edition includes a bunch of goodies modeled after items found in the game, including a set of seven casino chips representing casinos from the game, a special "Lucky 38 platinum chip," a deck of cards with New Vegas character imagery ("Use the cards to play poker, blackjack or Caravan, an original card game that was created by Obsidian especially for New Vegas!").

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood announced and detailed by Ubisoft

This morning, Ubisoft officially announced Ezio's return to the Assassin's Creed franchise, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. Though the game was outed and cursorily detailed in some placeholder box art last week, the official press release shared some specifics: the single-player campaign ("set in the living, breathing, unpredictable city of Rome") is expected to last 15 hours, and sees Ezio recruiting and training "promising young Assassins" for deployment across the historical capital.

Grab Section 8 for $15 on PSN this week

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2748 days, 10 hours, 21 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 11, 2010 11:53:32 PM GMT
TimeGate and Southpeak have taken serious measures to help move their download-only PS3 version of Section 8 -- for the next week, the game's price will be dropped by fifty percent. For $14.99, you can pick up the full version of the game and its three DLC multiplayer maps on the PlayStation Store. It's hard to say no to that price -- especially since you'll need to absorb the game's rich backstory in order to have any idea what's going on when you play Sections 9, 10 and 11. (more)

Sony slapped with two more class-action suits over Other OS removal

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2748 days, 10 hours, 22 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 11, 2010 11:51:53 PM GMT
As if one lawsuit regarding the removal of the Other OS functionality from the PlayStation 3 wasn't enough, two more class-action suits have been filed against Sony, reports IGN. Earlier this month, Todd Densmore and Antal Herz (of Georgia and California, respectively) filed a class-action suit against Sony, alleging that firmware update 3.2.1 (which removed the Other OS feature) made various features of the console unusable -- features that the suit claims weren't allowed to be removed without compensat...

Man Found Guilty for Tweeting Airport Bomb Threat

Back in January, a man was arrested for tweeting about blowing up an airport. Though it sounds serious when you put it that way, Paul Chambers was actually just kidding. His tweet, "Robin Hood airport is closed. You've got a week and a bit to get your shit together, otherwise I'm blowing the airport sky high!!" was not meant to be taken seriously. It came from a guy who was worried that snow would affect his plans to take a trip to Ireland. However, Chambers soon realized how seriously his tweet was take... (more)

HP Launching 'Hurricane' Tablet Running Palm's OS

Late last month, Palm was purchased by HP. Not too long after, amid talk that HP had canned its Windows 7 Slate, speculation emerged regarding a HP Slate running Palm's WebOS operating system. Today speculation turns into rumors as Examiner.com reports HP is planning a WebOS tablet called the Hurricane. That's right, it looks like HP is ditching the "Slate" moniker in favor of something a little more dramatic for this device. Examiner cites an inside source at HP who says the HP Hurricane is scheduled f... (more)

"You're coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don't always rank all that high on the truth meter," Obama said, according to the AFP.

Yesterday we told you what we thought about the new VAIO P, an $800 conversation piece of a netbook, and now Sony is giving potential owners something else to talk about. The little laptop has been granted "Remote Keyboard" functionality, turning it into a sort of giant economy sized version of the PlayStation 3 Wireless Keypad, a device we weren't particularly fond of when we first played with it way back in 2008.
