Halfbrick is Opening Another Branch

fruit ninja

Halfbrick Studios, the Brisbane studio which brought you Fruit Ninja, Jetpack, and some other games which are not nearly as recognizable, is opening a new division in Sidney, a town known for its tolerance of white-collar sweatshops and the production of overrated, narratively inane detective games. One of the biggest iPhone developers, Halfbrick is sure …

Be Coldplay

Rock-Band-Logo-rock-band-571806_420_324

Rock Band’s got some new DLC. Namely a bunch of songs from Coldplay, who’re the most hated band in the world yet somehow happen to be the most succesful. So now you all can pretend to be the people you pretend to hate. The DLC will be available on Xbox360, Wii, and PS3. And the titles …

Mirrors Edge 2 Might Just be Happening

Mirrors Edge 2

Mirror’s Edge was not a ‘great’ game—it had its share of flaws, but it was one of the most innovative in recent memory and in more ways than most people thought. Not only was the climbing and jumping stuff singular, but the shear focus and breadth of embodiment, of really making the player feel like …

Xbox+Windows Phone=Integration App

windows phone

There’s a cool, new feature of debatable value coming to an Xbox near you, assuming you own an Xbox and/or your concept of near includes your neighbor’s son’s bedroom, which is a little creepy by the way—I’ve been meaning to call the police.

Amy Trailer

Amy_15

VectorCell’s got a new game called Amy; it’s about zombies, which is a bit unoriginal–and late to the party to be honest. But what is kinda cool is you get to be the zombie; that is, you play as an infected woman named Lana, whose condition worsens as the game progresses. The only way to …

PS3 Stuck in Third

ps3

Sony’s PS3 never did work out quite like they expected, and the price combined with the late release have always been cited as a major causes of this. Despite its unpopularity, the PS3 is undoubtedly the most powerful console on the market. Its build quality is far better than the 360, and with some genuinely …

Sims Social Grabs Silver

TheSimsSocialDance

“Freemium” social games are the worst thing that ever happened to video games, and people keep playing them. They slavishly maintain their idiotic digital farms, houses, and/or mafia hideouts, spending ridiculous amounts of money on worthless in game objects, or—even more idiotically—wasting their time earning said worthless polygons through monotonous, repetitious tasks.

Rage Specs

rage

The specs for the upcoming Rage are out, and they’re reasonably demanding. That said, you won’t necessarily have to upgrade if you have a relatively new system, but you will have to soon anyway. Because Moore’s law is a double edged sword—just ask our robot enslaved grandchildren.       Specs after the break:
