Here's yet another way of making your way into PlayStation history. Sony has a casting call out for an upcoming zombie game – most likely Dead Nation, from the makers of Super Stardust HD – and it's looking for twenty gamers to star as a zombie in an upcoming trailer shoot, to be filmed in San Francisco.

No cloud, nor squall shall hinder Final Fantasy IX's release to PSN

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2777 days, 2 hours, 58 minutes ago
Saturday, May 08, 2010 7:18:21 AM GMT
Ask anybody who was old enough to go through the life cycle of the first PlayStation and they'll likely have an opinion on which Final Fantasy was the best. And "soon," a whole new generation will be able to engage in that most stimulating of debates, with the PlayStation Blog confirming that Final Fantasy IX will be the third "proper" PlayStation-era Final Fantasy game available for download on PSN, joining siblings Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII.

Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project gets some from the ESRB

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2777 days, 2 hours, 59 minutes ago
Saturday, May 08, 2010 7:16:57 AM GMT
It would appear the side-scrolling shoot-em-up PC Gamer called "a blast" back in 2002, Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project, will eventually find its way onto Xbox Live Arcade. It's happening, right? Like, we've seen a couple ratings pop up for the game, so it's gotta be a done deal -- come on, will somebody just officially announce this already? The latest indication (and hopefully precursor to a real announcement) comes from the ESRB, which offers the listing you see above. (more)

How Viva Pinata's Choclodocus was reverse engineered

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2777 days, 3 hours, 1 minute ago
Saturday, May 08, 2010 7:15:02 AM GMT
You could be forgiven for not staying abreast of news related to the now year-and-a-half-old Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise. Heck, we're almost kind of relieved; you have no idea what a hassle it is to dig our "Ñ" key out of the storage shed. But scattered across the globe is a resolute fan base that's unwilling to let the game drift off to the Great Piñata Garden in the Sky. When developer Rare ran out of the Piñata Vision barcodes that injected new creatures and items into the game, the PinataIsland.... (more)

Left 4 Dead 2 gets permanent Realism Vs mode, new weekly Mutation

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2777 days, 3 hours, 5 minutes ago
Saturday, May 08, 2010 7:11:26 AM GMT
You guys really liked that Realism Vs mode in Left 4 Dead 2, huh? Lucky for you, Valve's Left 4 Dead Blog passes along word that it's been made into a permanent game type. Valve reports the final results of the in-game poll show 68 percent of those voting wanted it to be permanent, while only 21 percent of those voting didn't want it hanging around -- the final 11 percent really had no opinion. Apathy doesn't help kill zombies, people. (more)

When we last saw Alpha Protocol, protagonist Michael Thorton was being formally introduced. Now, just two days later, he's pulverizing and/or murdering everything in his sight. The latest trailer, as you might have guessed, features Thorton in a variety of combat scenarios, showing off some Splinter Cell: Conviction-esque pistol takedowns and American Ninja-esque karate moves.

Nimbus 64: the latest in a long line of gorgeous portable N64 mods

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2777 days, 3 hours, 18 minutes ago

or whatever reason, the last great game console to utilize a cartridge over a disc is finding itself in yet another portable form factor, and of course, the Nimbus 64 has been crafted by one of Ben Heck's most loyal followers. One cndowning is responsible for this beaut, and it's actually his second homemade portable; this particular miniaturized Nintendo 64 uses a custom vacuum formed case, D-pads and control sticks from used Game Cube controllers, a Zenith PS1 display and plenty of nuts and bolts that ...

Current T-Mobile customers having hard time upgrading to HTC HD2 (updated with statement)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2777 days, 3 hours, 20 minutes ago
Saturday, May 08, 2010 6:56:12 AM GMT
First, the good news: T-Mobile's HD2 is in stock online and apparently at many corporate-owned retail locations. Now, the bad: the carrier seems to be putting these things on lockdown right now, only offering them to new customers signing up for a fresh contract. This is a tactic T-Mobile has applied in the past, so we're not terribly surprised to see them do it here, too -- but it's still a disappointment, especially considering that the phone has been out for a few weeks now.

Visit CBS.com from your iPad right now and all you'll get is a full episode of Survivor and clips from various other shows. By the start of the Fall season, however, CBS Interactive SVP Anthony Soohoo is promising content parity between its Flash-based website and HTML5-compliant iPad portal. While on the subject, he also notes that the video strategy will be entirely web-based, with no plans for an app à la ABC Player. (more)

Alright, stop us if you've heard this one before -- but seriously, we've noticed an uptick on the tip lines here at Engadget in the last couple weeks that's becoming difficult to ignore. It's one thing to say "hey, the iPhone is launching on Verizon," but we're noticing a particular confluence of facts that has us intrigued: it'll drop sometime in Summer, possibly in concert with the announcement that Verizon's first commercial LTE networks have gone live, and -- tread carefully here, because this is pre...

Looks like settlement negotiations in the various Nokia / Apple patent lawsuits aren't going too well -- Espoo's just hit Cupertino with a second federal patent lawsuit, this time alleging the iPad 3G and iPhone infringe five patents related to "enhanced speech and data transmission, using positioning data in applications and innovations in antenna configurations that improve performance and save space, allowing smaller and more compact devices.

Since the launch of both the DS and Wii, five games published by Nintendo have sold more than twenty million copies. Can you guess which ones? If you said Brain Age, you're close (18 million), but wrong. Mario Kart DS? Close again, at 17.9 million, but just as wrong. No, the five games to reach this amazing milestone are: (more)

Rory McIlroy looks good in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2778 days, 1 hour, 14 minutes ago
Friday, May 07, 2010 9:01:57 AM GMT
That's a screenshot of Rory McIlroy, the co-coverboy (with, uh, Tiger Woods) of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11. He's a 21-year-old golf phenom from Northern Ireland who won his first PGA Tour event this past Sunday at Quail Hollow, shooting a course-record-breaking 62 in his final round. You'll probably be hearing his name much more often in the near future, which is why EA sent out 14 in-game images of him. (more)

Brotherhood appears to be the multiplayer Assassin's Creed title Ubisoft had previously announced for a fall release. The back of the box says players can "Live and breathe as Ezio, a now legendary master assassin, in his struggle to strike at the heart of the enemy, Rome." (more)
