Wednesday, April 28, 2010 9:16:46 AM GMT
Aksys' not-actually-very-erotic-but-being-marketed-that-way SRPG Record of Agarest War is finally coming to the North American PlayStation Store this week. Available this Thursday for $44.99, the only way you'll be able to play this game on PS3 is to download the game via PSN. However, don't expect to play the game right away. As promised, it's a hefty download: 10GB. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2788 days, 12 hours, 16 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 28, 2010 9:16:01 AM GMT
In the mood for some old-school shmup action with a modern twist? This Thursday, NormalTanks -- not to be confused with those crazy tanks you see every now and then -- will release on PSN for the PSP and PS3. The game features a top-down isometric view and eight different environments to navigate and, as you may have guessed from the title, you control a tank. (more)

Transformers: War for Cybertron video shows Jazz, Demolishor and Shockwave in action

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2788 days, 12 hours, 17 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 28, 2010 9:14:34 AM GMT
Joystiq would never condone violence; however, when it comes to robot-on-robot violence, we're all for it. It's not like they can feel anything, right? So we'd like to bring your attention to some pre-order bonuses for High Moon Studios' upcoming not-a-movie-game Transformers: War for Cybertron. Should you decide to enlist in the robo-wars early, you can nab yourself an exclusive character: Jazz, if you pre-order through Best Buy, Demolishor, should you go through Amazon, and Shockwave, if you go the Gam...

New Games on Demand added, questionably priced

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2788 days, 12 hours, 18 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 28, 2010 9:13:53 AM GMT
Far Cry 2, Kane & Lynch: Dead Men and Shrek the Third are now on the Marketplace, as promised, all priced at $30. Three Hamiltons for Far Cry 2? That we can get behind. But the other two are definitely $20 fare, in our humble (professional) opinion. Especially since you can buy all three games new for near that price from online retailers such as Amazon. (more)

Just kidding about that 'BioShock 2 DLC coming this week' thing

Wednesday, April 28, 2010 9:12:38 AM GMT
Boy, oh boy, is there egg all over your face. You all actually bought into last week's Xbox Live Newsbeat, which announced a new chunk of BioShock 2 DLC to be released April 29? Don't you recognize a goof when you see one? Allow us to educate you: That was totally a goof. A joke! A sham! Some good old-fashioned monkeyshines. (more)

Skate 3 video gets by with a little help from some friends

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2788 days, 12 hours, 20 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 28, 2010 9:12:11 AM GMT
EA has been pushing the community aspects of Skate 3 since unveiling the game, and this latest trailer is no different. Focusing on the Freeskating mode, the video demonstrates how easy it is to hook up with some friends and navigate the different parts of Port Carverton. For the most part, these are things players could do in Skate 2 -- been there, done that. (more)

Best Buy confirms Alpha Protocol 'Stealth Weapons Pack' pre-order bonus

Wednesday, April 28, 2010 9:09:52 AM GMT
Looks like those leaflets at Best Buy we posted a few weeks back were no baloney. Sega and Best Buy wired a press release confirming the Stealth Weapons Pack for Alpha Protocol, which includes "the Hamilton Marksman High-Accuracy Pistol, the Samael Typhoon High Recoil Control SMG and a bonus arsenal of ammo and mines." Huh, since when did the purveyors of home appliances start manufacturing weaponry? (more)

Monster Hunter Tri guide introduces a monster of questionable huntability

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2788 days, 12 hours, 23 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 28, 2010 9:08:28 AM GMT
Monster Hunter Tri is dangerous business. So dangerous, in fact, that Capcom felt the need to warn us about some of the harder-to-hunt monsters. In the last entry in its "Dangerous Guide to Monster Hunting," the publisher introduces the "Alatreon," which sounds like something that should only be taken on by the craziest, death-wishingest of hunters.

The Virtual Console and DSiWare are stuffed full of games this week in Japan! The Virtual Console has the first Metal Max Famicom game (a series that eventually led to Metal Saga on PS2, with a DS sequel upcoming), as well as two Neo Geo fighting games. The bizarre Waku Waku 7 from Sunsoft stars robot tanks, Totoro-esque creatures, and even a sentient punching bag! There's even an ancient Dig Dug-style arcade game.

Google's Android has finally managed to triumph over Apple's iPhone by capturing 46 percent of the US market share.
 Meanwhile, the iPhone's notoriously closed OS lost three percentage points as it dropped from 45 to 42 percent.

Two Android devices, the HTC Dream and HTC Magic, collectively represented 96% of Android traffic in September 2009. Seven months later, 11 devices represented 96% of Android traffic," A... (more)

Supreme Court to Rule on CA Video Game Law

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2788 days, 12 hours, 35 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 28, 2010 8:56:37 AM GMT
Reuters said Monday that the U.S. Supreme Court plans to make a decision on a California law banning the rental and sale of violent video games to minors, a law that also requires publishers to use stricter labeling than what's in use today. Currently the court is debating on whether the law actually violates constitutional free-speech rights, and has agreed to hear the state's appeal after a California U.S. appeals court deemed the law as unconstitutional.

And just like that, it's official. We heard back at CTIA that Nokia's N8 would see an official reveal during April, and just a few short days after surfacing in Russia, that very smartphone has indeed been announced over in Espoo. There's not much here we didn't know about -- it'll be rocking a 12 megapixel camera (with Carl Zeiss optics and a Xenon flash), 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen, HDMI output, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD expansion slot, HD video recording, access to Ovi Store apps, fre...

Sony teases VAIO Ultra Mobile, Clippy chuffed

Wednesday, April 28, 2010 8:53:42 AM GMT
Interesting. Sony's teasing a new VAIO "Ultra Mobile" in Japan. No idea what this could be: refreshed VAIO X lappie, VAIO P netbook, or a new take on its venerable VAIO UX micro PC? With Intel's Moorestown just around the corner we're leaning towards the latter, hoping for it anyway -- Sony doesn't tease just any old product without good reason. Oh, wait. (more)
