posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2807 days, 2 hours, 34 minutes ago
Thursday, April 08, 2010 7:38:50 AM GMT
Crysis 2 moves from the jungle into the metropolis in New York City. It is then only fitting that the world premier teaser trailer would debut on a big screen in Times Square. Luckily, the footage was captured by a Manhattanite and uploaded for the rest of the world to see. It's not direct feed or especially crisp, but it's all we have until Crytek throws us another bone.

Thursday, April 08, 2010 7:12:53 AM GMT
This is why Sega's Yakuza series, whose third entry came out in North America this March, hasn't been a runaway hit here. The series, called Ryu ga Gotoku ("Like a Dragon") in its native Japan, is arguably the single most "Japanese" game being made today. While most game developers and publishers are being forced to tailor their creations for larger and larger audiences, prospective customers covering every continent on Earth who speak dozens of different languages, Sega's CS1 development team is making...

Gilbert was currently working DeathSpank, an upcoming downloadable game for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.

Everyone Sucks At Videogames

Thursday, April 08, 2010 6:38:22 AM GMT
You've got thousands of achievement points, hundreds of videogame end-credits soldered in to your brain and the weathered thumb calluses to prove it. But guess what? You're not exempt from all the little idiotic missteps that every gamer falls prey to in a moment of ignorance. Maybe you've accidentally stared at the wrong corner of a heated split-screen multiplayer session or left the house wearing nothing but your Xbox headset? Yeah, we thought so. Deny it all you want, but if some of these sound a litt... (more)

Do you miss the heady days of 0-day warez, cracks, Keygens and RIPs? Hell, yeah - those were magical times indeed! But like Trent Reznor of NIN fame, software piracy has never been more popular or accepted in the UK than it is today. 

According to a survey conducted by Microsoft, a third of UK residents believe it is perfectly acceptable to liberally engage in pirating games, apps, music and movies. (more)

New Mass Effect 2 content brings character, gun, high price

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2807 days, 3 hours, 42 minutes ago
Thursday, April 08, 2010 6:30:50 AM GMT
What if you could find the memories of someone you cared about... someone who is no longer with you? How far would you go? The new content for Mass Effect 2 , called "Kasumi—Stolen Memory," deals with a master thief who has joined Cerberus for a price: you need to help her find those files. What follows feels almost more like a James Bond film than a Mass Effect 2 mission, but that's a good thing. You dress up in new formal wear, which you get to keep and wear for the rest of the game if you'd like, and... (more)

Verizon CEO: Studies be damned, US is tops in broadband

Thursday, April 08, 2010 6:27:14 AM GMT
Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg sat down for an on-the-record conversation yesterday at the Council for Foreign Relations, and he pulled no punches: the US is number one in the world when it comes to broadband. We're so far ahead of everyone else, it's "not even close." Given how mind-blowingly awesome US Internet is, one can't help but wonder why France's Free.fr can offer a triple play of phone, TV, and Internet for €30 a month. Perhaps price and features, along with speed, aren't really "important" to co... (more)
