Heavenly Sword Audio More Massive Than A DVD

Heavenly Sword Audio More Massive Than A DVD

How big is Heavenly Sword? No idea, but the game’s audio, from sound effects to music to cutscene dialogue amounts to a whopping 10 GB of data. With three and a half hours of music and 4500 lines of voice over work, in eleven languages, it apparently starts to add…

Unreal Engine Adds GameSpy Tech For PS3-PC Crossplay

Epic Games announced today it has licensed GameSpy’s online multiplayer technology with plans to incorporate the software suite into its extremely popular Unreal Engine 3 platform.

Boogie Bites Back, Responds To Reception

Boogie Bites Back, Responds To Reception

Boogie has had a mixed, but mostly negative critical reception. Last week when planning a Frankenreview, I was shocked at how few outlets had actually reviewed the game—which I assumed was due to EA being worried about reviews and withholding journalist copies. Jean-Charles Gaudechon responds to the critics, who’ve attacked…

New Beautiful Katamari Screens Are Hot

New Beautiful Katamari Screens Are Hot

Literally. Beautiful Katamari will feature a new Roller Roaster mode in which players need to roll up massive amounts of “hot things,” like pizza, coffee and pictures of Crecente. Laws of physics would generally argue that in order to reach 10,000 degrees Celsius, one would need more than a multitude…

D3 Partners With Illusion

D3 Partners With Illusion

D3 Publisher is having a pretty good year, thanks in no small part to some excellent game publishing choices in the form of my beloved Earth Defence Force 2017 for the 360 and Puzzle Quest for everything that plays games. Now they’ve made another wise move, signing a publishing deal…

Warhammer Elves Invade Leipzig

Warhammer Elves Invade Leipzig

If you’ve been following the development of Warhammer Online: Age Of Reckoning as closely as I have, you’ve only got one question on your mind. “Where are the cyber-friendly races?” I know, right? Humans are nice and all, but we’re already humans. What we need is elves. Hot, sexy elves,…

Screwattack’s Ten Worstest Mario Games

Mario’s been in loads of games. No, not loads, tonnes. Like, over 200, and we’re still counting. Scattered amongst that catalogue are some of the medium’s finest games, yeah, but also some of its stinkiest pieces of crap. This video celebrates that crap. Mario 2’s presence is a bit harsh,…

DS Motion Sensor In the Flesh

Earlier this month, Nintendo’s Magkid went on sale in Japan. The game features a motion sensing dongle that connects via the DS’s GBA slot. Tech site Digital World Tokyo has a few pics up of the motion sensing add-on. Along with that Face Training DS camera, loads of interesting little…

The Slow Rise Of Konsoles

The Slow Rise Of Konsoles

Before 2001, console gaming didn’t quite exist in Korea. The government had taken baby steps to lift its long-standing ban on the sale of Japanese consoles. Console sales haven’t ever been popular, but all three hardware makers seem invested in building on their foothold on the Peninsula. For consoles, this…

Mark Rein, UTIII Love The Blu-Ray

Mark Rein, UTIII Love The Blu-Ray

Mark Rein loves the 360, to be sure. Dude’s company made a lot of money out of that Gears malarkey. But he may love Blu-Ray just as much! If not more! Speaking at the Edinburgh Interactive Festival, Rein said that while the size of the 360 version of Unreal Tournament…

Puyo Puyo-kissing model Yuri Ebihara is back with more Puyo Puyo and more kissing. Previously, Ebihara (AKA Ebi-chan) appeared in the Puyo Puyo DS TV spots and has returned for the console spot. As always, the game’s innocous as is Ebi-chan, who once said: “If someone doesn’t find me cute,…

Interplay Seeking Cash For Fallout Online

Interplay Seeking Cash For Fallout Online

Back in December 2001, Interplay were in trouble. They had debts of USD$59 million. Which is a lot! Now? They only owe $US3 million (helps that they sold the Fallout IP to Bethesda). Anyways, with the black side of the books in sight they’re looking to cut loose! Tuscan villa,…

The Chipmunks, The Rhythm Game, The Experience

The rumours were right. The Chipmunks are getting their own PS2/Wii/DS videogame from Brash Entertainment.

Ten Years Down The Drain?

Ten Years Down The Drain?

GamesRadar has highlighted eight franchises that haven’t changed in ten years. The list includes biggies like Pokemon, Virtual Fighter and even The Legend of Zelda. They applaud the titles for staying entertaining, while simultaneously stabbing them in the back for not evolving like Mario or Prince of Persia.

360 Skate Demo Delayed

360 Skate Demo Delayed

Yeah, so about that Skate demo for the Xbox 360 I told you about the other day that was scheduled for the 15th of this month? Isn’t happening. In a post on the EA forums, Executive Producer Scott Blackwood explains that overly-ambitious features are pushing the demo back by several…

Madden Rampages Through Retail Shelves

Madden Rampages Through Retail Shelves

EA wanted to take a moment of our time to remind everyone that Madden NFL 08 is now hitting stores, available across a ridiculous 10 platforms, including mobile phones, though I highly suspect being caught playing Madden on a mobile phone will result in, at the very least a severe…

DSes Can Screw Up Kid’s Vision

DSes Can Screw Up Kid’s Vision

Little dudes, DSes fuck up your eyes. Don’t believe me, believe Bill Nye “The Science Guy.” This public service announcement alerts us all about Computer Vision Syndrome, AKA “CVS.” As Bill Nye explains, this occurs when children hold video game systems too close to their eyes. It makes them “tired,”…
