Badcompany … reminds me of Black

Remember Black? Yea, that EA Criterion game that allowed you to blow shit up. Apparently the boys over at DICE built this software that allows you to that times two ya. Ya, that’s right. Blow more shit up. I have to admit, Black was very satisfying and I played through every difficulty setting got all items and secrets not because I wanted to but mostly because I just wanted to blow shit up – This looks like it will deliver more of that. Let me let DICE explain it all to you -

Enter – Rumble 2.0

Okay, I’m not sure what to make of this, but its so crazy that I like it. Mark Ombrellaro [good luck with the last name], CEO of TN Games took this once medical based device for the human body and decided to apply its mechanics to a full body suit of rumble effects that you feel … *cough* all over. Girlfriends always thought the rumble feature was cool but this takes its to whole other level.

Home! – Not a Glorified Chat Room?

Seriously, I love my ps3 and all but I saw the Home idea as a gimmick. Yea, hate me but that’s how I felt. Its’ a fact that communication via texting and messaging is enough but yea, users wouldn’t mind seeing impressions of other users mugs either.

Great, so enter Home. You have to wonder why Sony put the brakes on that thing, even when PH had edged other parts of the Empire to push more on the “community” aspect of gaming. So what do you do? Integrate actual “game-playing, side quests, and game content extras” ino the game Home System.

See the posts here at many other gaming sites -

  • Resistance integrates Home into Gameplay.
  • Uncharted makes it cool.
  • Warhawk adds functionality.

In addition to this expect to see all the advertising your eyes can handle. I’m not sure I understand the complaint about this but it has something to do with visual pollution. As a city dweller, you really can’t complain about visual pollution here but if you’re from other parts of the world where ads are at a minimum, I can understand why you might suffer from information overload.

EA+Resident Evil=Dead Space

Well look at EA gettin all new and original on us gaming folk. Not one to be known for new ip’s, EA has decided to take a stab at the survival horror genre with their upcoming title Dead Space (droppin’ this october). And from the looks and premise so far, things are shaping up to be pretty interesting and worth a look. EA has gone as far as to say that they’re making quite possibly the scariest game yet. How scary you ask? How about not being able to pause the game what so ever! Not even when you got your menu screen. Damn..Im scared from that statement alone! A quick summary of the story goes like this: you play the role of an engineer by the name of Isaac Clarke who is sent on a mission to a deep space mining ship to fix their communications. Upon arrival it’s obvious that all hell has broken loose plus there’s this nasty ass alien infestation in which he has to survive and get the hell out. Im liking the look and design of the characters and the atmosphere they have going. I’ll def’ be looking forward to this and it’ll calm my horror game fix until res 5. Peep the newest trailer below:

Here’s an older trailer:

Unit out!

PlayTV is Official

After some of my friends, who I will keep un-named, suffered the lost of a format they supported, they pointed out something that was already obvious to me – that Bluray’s only other foe would be DLC. Downloadable Content is probably the only thing right now that could compete but for the tech geeks in us, we know that DCL cannot hold a candle against all the fidelity that goes into movies and placed on a discs with things like TrueHD DTS, DoblyD THX II, and others. Until we can do GB downloads, things will stay the way they are for a little while longer. I was actually hoping for this after the announcement of Fibre based ICs but that was just a gimmick it seems to.ÂÂ Also, computers will need a serious fibre-optic overhaul to keep with these insane speeds.

playTV

Enter PlayTV. What is it? Simply put, PlayTV is software and hardware that turns your PS3 into a media/TV Tuner. I know what you’re thinking – “So what, I’m getting an iTV to make my iLife complete.” Indeed, I like iTV, I got to use it last Saturday at a friends house and I was impressed. But iTV has a few restrictions on it that Sony’s PlayTV will not. You can as you please with the media you obtain, even transfer the files to your iPod. Cheeky? Perhaps.

2d will never die or what Street Fighter 4 should look like!

Street Fighter 4 isn’t the only 2d fighter droppn’ this year. From the makers of Guilty Gear comes Blaze Blue. The first 2d fighter in HD. Above is a trailer, but it does no justice to what the game actually looks like. We’ll keep you posted until an offical HD trailer is available. Until then, peep the madness that is Blaze Blue!!!!

Street Fighter IV – MAN – ‘ISH!!

WTF! I have loads of Work Time Fun daily but it must be rediculous over at Capcom. I know the art team went a different direction with SF IV recently but the Chun-MANLI’NESS is seriously out of control. Stop the madness. I mean just look at her hands -

Cool Super Robot Wars compilation

BANDAI was short-sighted, they sold the licensing rights to each of the different series (Gundam, Evangelion, etc.) to different companies (Geneon, ADV, etc.) rather than keeping it all under the BANDAI name in the USA. That means that each of the companies that owns a series wants their share of royalties for their licensed series… which, of course, thanks to greedy ass bigwigs turns out to be way too big a piece of the money pie to make bringing the Super Robot Wars franchise here profitable.

Thanks Bandai….bastards
