Forza Horizon: behind-the-scenes look at the festival

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1730 days, 19 hours, 41 minutes ago
Wednesday, October 24, 2012 8:52:00 AM GMT
The latest behind-the-scenes look at Forza Horizon digs into the festival atmosphere that the game is centered around. It's fireworks, lasers, dubstep, and bros, which may be right up your alley, or not at all. It didn't fit my tastes exactly, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the game. (more)

Classic RPG action with fresh new unitard fashion

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1730 days, 19 hours, 44 minutes ago
Wednesday, October 24, 2012 8:49:02 AM GMT
When the 3DS was first released, an unlikely champion quickly rose to the top of a lot of early adopters' "most played games." Find Mii, the free, bare-bones, turn-based RPG that's included with the console was quick to capture and retain the attention of many. The game was so popular that Nintendo even released a sequel earlier this year, with tons of new enemies and funny little hats to collect. (more)

A bit of the old ultra-violence

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1730 days, 19 hours, 46 minutes ago
Wednesday, October 24, 2012 8:47:39 AM GMT
Hotline Miami is a game about impactful killing. It asks players to focus on the details of invasion and murder that we don’t often consider in games. If Max Payne diving through a window, holding guns akimbo, is on one side of the spectrum of action games, Hotline Miami exists on the other side. And, it’s a very lonely place. (more)

Rumor: PS3 hacked yet again, this time it might be for keeps

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1730 days, 19 hours, 51 minutes ago
Wednesday, October 24, 2012 8:42:50 AM GMT
Yesterday a new, PSN-enabled custom firmware for hacked PlayStation 3 consoles launched, compatible with the official firmware 4.25 release. This type of hack isn't new, and previously Sony has been able to update its firmware to sufficiently quell the hackers' reach. Following the custom firmware launch yesterday, however, was the release of the PlayStation 3's LV0 keys. (more)

Our electronic world, for all of the new abilities it can give us, is infinitely more fragile than it once was. Some modern devices literally shatter when dropped a few feet. Hell, even the more robust devices in our silicon armories can still look like sadness and poo after one good smack on a concrete sidewalk. (more)

Youth in revolt

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1731 days, 20 hours, 20 minutes ago
Tuesday, October 23, 2012 8:13:13 AM GMT
The first fifteen minutes of most games give you a good idea of everything that lies ahead. After going through the first two hours of Harvey’s New Eyes, I got the gist of what things were to come. So, this is basically some awkward throwback to '90s E-rated adventure games. At this point, I was tearing my eyes out at the game’s painful sense of humor and terrible voice acting. I actually sent an email to my editor, pleading to take me off this review. Then, I played some more. (more)
