Bogart your Burnout

I feel bad for Bogart. I mean, he was a famous actor and everything, and probably got laid a lot, but it’s gotta suck to have your namesake equated with the inappropriate consumption of communal marijuana. What did he do to deserve that?
Criterion is doing their part to help the guy out. The forthcoming patch [...]

PS3 Rumble Controllers Hit Next Week (Week Early)
By: Dyno (Today, 03:09 PM)
How white is the white controller? Are we taking computer off-white or we talking a Winsconsin (sic) cheese-monger? X-Box is as white as I’m willing to go, anything whiter than that gives me a klan sheet vibe, you feel me?
Also, in that same [...]

New PS Store

It’s about frigging time. The old one, while functional, was rather sucky as far as console interfaces go. This new design is a very safe bet, although the lack of flexible 16:9 proportions is irritating. At least we’re not pointing a mouse arrow with a controller anymore. The SELECT nav button at the bottom strongly [...]

I, for one, welcome our iPhone Gaming Overlords

… and I’d like to remind them that as a trusted blogging personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground development caves.
Have you seen this shit? It’s crazytown in iPhoneville. Apple has released the kraken. Named SDK.
I’ve been a little slow responding to this announcement since I wanted to [...]

One To Watch: Mirror’s Edge

Another new IP from the reformed Electronic Arts: Mirror’s Edge. They previewed this game recently for a small gaggle of the usual gaming press suspects. Earnest Cavalli at Game|Life has a good write-up.

The concept is parkour again, like Assassin’s Creed but faster-more-intense. Also the game has a refreshingly modern/near-future setting, something of a rarity these [...]

Microsoft @ GDC 08

GDC is in full swing now, with Microsoft having given their keynote presentation yesterday afternoon. There’s some interesting stuff in there, although nothing too earth-shattering, and a few notable omissions were apparent as well. Here’s the Cliff Notes version:
After going over the general positive spin on Live and announcing that gamers had amassed 1 billion [...]

PixelJunk Eden – What Is It? I Don’t Care, I Want It

The Games Developer Conference is well under way in gay old San Fran and the tidbits are starting to trickle out.
Q-Games has done some really interesting stuff in the DLC space lately. PixelJunk Monsters is a huge hit, coming as the only credible “tower defence” type game on consoles that I know of. The [...]

Warhawk 1.Triple

You have to hand it to Sony’s Santa Monica/Incognito team. “It” being credit for keeping a once-nearly-doomed project alive and kicking in such fine form. You have to hand that them, it doesn’t belong to you. Just hand it over. Now. Thanks.
Warhawk gets another free patch “soon”, numbered v1.3, which will add some welcome feature [...]

Just A Flesh Wound

Netflix: “We’re not going to carry HD DVD discs anymore…”
Best Buy: “HD DVD content will no longer receive marketing…”
Wal*Mart: “We no longer will be carrying HD DVD…”

HD DVD: “I’ll bite your legs off.”
Now the question is – will MS ship an external blu-ray drive for 360, thus completely validating Sony’s strategy once and for all; [...]

Pata pon chaka don pon demo

The Patapon demo materializes this afternoon on the PSN Store (PC and PS3).
Nothing more needs to be said. The game looks really promising. There’s a goofy, overly saccharine corporate-themed faux romantic announcement over at the SCE blog.
After you heave yourself, spent and drooling, off of your loved one this evening, you can enjoy some frantic [...]
