Friday, April 23, 2010 10:10:15 PM GMT
Earlier this month Capcom did an about face, declaring that despite initial intentions, upcoming fighter Super Street Fighter IV would indeed get an arcade release in Japan. But how did it come about? (more)

StarCraft II's Cool, Sometimes Crazy Single Player Liberties

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2645 days, 4 hours, 30 minutes ago
Friday, April 23, 2010 10:08:42 PM GMT
Blizzard is creating a wildly different experience for those who choose to play StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty's single-player campaign, adding units, vehicles and upgrades that you just won't see in multiplayer, from the familiar Firebat to the bizarre Predator. The last time we played StarCraft II's single-player game, we laid out the unit, base and ship upgrades that will trick out units with special abilities you won't see in multiplayer games. At the time, that included the return of units from the ... (more)

How 'bout an Xbox 360 for $159?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2645 days, 4 hours, 31 minutes ago
Friday, April 23, 2010 10:07:21 PM GMT
The trend seems to be a slight daily decline in the attractiveness of these internet deals we keep coming across. Nothing will top that $100 Xbox 360, but today's deal from Dell is no slouch. It's $40 of an Xbox 360 Arcade console, bringing the price down to $159. No coupons or workarounds are required. Just go to Dell and click to add to your cart. (more)

No More Heroes remakes outsold the original by a little

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2645 days, 4 hours, 33 minutes ago
Friday, April 23, 2010 10:05:46 PM GMT
We're not going to say that No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise is a hit, but those of us in constant fear of Marvelous running out of money can breathe a sigh of relief, as the remake has brought a little cash in (more considering that the game is a port and therefore probably less expensive to produce). In fact, both versions managed to make it into the Media Create top ten, with the PS3 version's 16,000 copies securing a #7 position and the Xbox 360 version's 15,000 copies at #8. Both of these actually o... (more)

Monkey Island 2 Special Edition screens tour Booty Island

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2645 days, 4 hours, 33 minutes ago
Friday, April 23, 2010 10:04:57 PM GMT
We're going to play a little game today. Here's the only rule: try not to be impressed by the graphical fidelity of these Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge screens. Don't marvel at the vibrant pirate spitting contest you see above. Don't cower at the menacing and highly-detailed visage of LeChuck himself. Scoff at the wares in the antique shop. Go ahead -- be unimpressed. (more)

Final Fantasy XIII and Splinter Cell 360 Elite bundles $40 off at Amazon

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2645 days, 4 hours, 38 minutes ago

Amazon has a pair of sweet deals for those in the market for an Xbox 360 console. Both the Final Fantasy XIII Elite bundle and Splinter Cell: Conviction Elite bundle are $40 off, down to a much more palatable $359.99. That's almost like getting the bundled game for free -- not to mention the value of a bigger, beefier 250gb hard drive and an extra controller. (more)

Madden 11 demo is Jets vs. Colts, will release in 'late July'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2645 days, 4 hours, 39 minutes ago
Friday, April 23, 2010 9:59:02 PM GMT
Hot on the heels of the Madden NFL 11 announcement revealing Drew Brees for the cover, the votes have been tallied for the teams featured in the requisite pre-release demo: it'll be the Jets vs. Colts. The news comes via the official Madden NFL site, where voting was opened in late March to decide whether the demo would recreate the AFC Championship game, the NFC Championship game or the Super Bowl. There must've been a lot of disgruntled Jets fans voting in that poll. (more)

The manufacturer now has worldwide rights to produce and distribute Rock Band peripherals. The company previously produced third-party peripherals for Rock Band and Rock Band 2. (more)

'Project K' screenshots surface, look too good

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2645 days, 4 hours, 43 minutes ago
Friday, April 23, 2010 9:54:52 PM GMT
This isn't a screenshot from Yakuza 3 or 4. Nope, this is "Project K," an upcoming Yakuza spinoff for the PSP. Famitsu has the first screenshots of the game in action, and we have to admit, that they look a bit too good to be true. At first glance, it's easy to mistake this screen for a photograph of a Japanese city. Assuming these screens haven't been touched up in any way, we're glad to see the PSP is still being pushed technologically by developers. Even if you aren't particularly interested in the ... (more)

Sengoku Basara anime available for online streaming

Wondering what all this Sengoku Basara stuff is about? We've certainly heard questions to the effect of "Sengoku Ba-whatnow?" a few times since the TGS announcement of the of the Wii/PS3 brawler. Funimation is licensing the popular anime show that ties into the game, and has posted the first two episodes online for free.

Rare NES game 'Ufouria' rated by OFLC, Virtual Console release possible

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2645 days, 4 hours, 46 minutes ago
Friday, April 23, 2010 9:52:45 PM GMT
Sunsoft has started to revitalize its brand with the help of Gaijinworks' Victor Ireland. The strategy includes re-releases of classic games on Nintendo's Virtual Console, including Blaster Master, and the creation of original content -- also Blaster Master, actually. If a new rating by the Australian OFLC board is any indication, Sunsoft is planning a Virtual Console release of Ufouria: The Saga, a rare NES game that never made it to North America. (more)

Crysis 2 writer Richard Morgan hopes to avoid 'the Big Mac aesthetic'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2645 days, 6 hours, 34 minutes ago
Friday, April 23, 2010 8:04:26 PM GMT
In an interview with VG247, science fiction author Richard Morgan had some interesting things to say about his writing role on Crysis 2, the upcoming shooter set in a crumbling New York City. It's an industry role with a "soft" template, he explained, and it's not one without some familiar challenges. We're still dealing with a sequel and a superguy shooting aliens, after all. (more)

Friday, April 23, 2010 8:03:08 PM GMT
SOCOM fans are by far some of the most vocal and opinionated people in gaming today. Having endured the rocky launch of SOCOM Confrontation, the revelation that SOCOM 4 would include support for the PlayStation Move motion controller was met with a large amount of skepticism. We spoke with Zipper Interactive about their plans to address fan concerns, and the challenges of balancing a game with two very different control inputs. (more)

Ubisoft Going Greener by Ditching Game Manuals

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2645 days, 6 hours, 36 minutes ago
Friday, April 23, 2010 8:02:29 PM GMT
When was the last time you read through the manual of your new Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 game before popping it into your console's disc drive? We're guessing that, given the chance between playing a new game's tutorial (ever increasingly popular handholding in video games) versus reading about it in a dull black and white booklet, you'd take the first option. That could be the reason why Ubisoft will be discontinuing the bundling of manuals in its Xbox 360 and PS3 games later this year. (more)

Google, Broadcom close to enabling 802.11n on Nexus One?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2645 days, 6 hours, 37 minutes ago
Friday, April 23, 2010 8:00:56 PM GMT
We need a name for this whole drama -- we like "n-Gate," but it's a little too close to N-Gage for comfort. Anyhow, you might recall that Google briefly listed 802.11n support in the Nexus One around the time of its release, then wiped all mention of it only to have iFixit's teardown reveal on no uncertain terms that the Broadcom-sourced wireless chipset was definitely capable of rocking it.

PlayStation 3's 3D implementation explained, may require upscaling and reduction in detail to work

It was only a couple of days ago that Sony flicked the switch on 3D compatibility for the PS3 -- albeit without retail games that can yet exploit it -- so what better time to dig into the nitty gritty details of the company's implementation of the third dimension? Digital Foundry have done just that, starting off with a discussion of how Sony translated WipEout HD from 2D into 3D. (more)

YouTube rental selection expanded; sadly, most films still lack explosions

Are you looking for yet another way to stream Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired? Netflix and iTunes not doing it for you? Apparently YouTube's first, tentative step into on-demand rentals (some sort of Sundance Film Festival cross-promotion early this year) went well enough, and the company's started offering an extended range of movie and TV episodes for your viewing pleasure. Depending on the flick, anywhere between $.99 and $3.99 will get you 48 hours access, paid through Google Check-Out. (more)
