The Grandeur of NCAA 12

Posted on April 20, 2011

The first details about NCAA 12 are slowly coming out, and this teaser trailer from EA Sports showcases some of the college pageantry in the game.

Today the publisher also announced that former University of Alabama running back Mark Ingram has been voted as the cover star for this year’s game, which comes out on July 12.

You’ll probably notice in the screens and the video below that the game is looking pretty good thanks to a new feature called HDR lighting. You can see the first developer diary about HDR lighting in this previous preview. This new look is augmented by increased presentation, including more pre-game festivities to get your blood going.

Stay tuned for more on NCAA 12 – including news about some important gameplay changes – in the coming days.

MDK 2 parachuting onto WiiWare May 9

Posted on April 20, 2011

Raise a (radioactive) toast, as a release date has finally been set for the WiiWare version of MDK 2. Nintendo’s website lists the title for a May 9 launch at a price of 1000 Wii Points ($10).

We checked with Trent Oster, head of developer IdeaSpark Labs, who confirmed both the date and price. Remember, be mindful of the pumpernickel. It tends to explode.

Posted on April 11, 2011

 

Warner Brothers could be doing what may be considered blasphemy amongst gamers: they could be making a comic book inspired Batman game without Rocksteady at the helm. Yes, I know such a thing may be shocking enough that you either lost your breath or performed a Batman style falcon punch to your computer monitor, but just stay with me for a bit before you go into gamer rage mode so I can fill you in on the details.

SSX: Deadly Descents Gets A Name Change + New BTS Video

Posted on April 09, 2011

 

When Electronic Arts unveiled their SSX reboot last December at the Spike Video Game Awards, the reception amongst gamers was about as icy as one of the treacherous mountain peaks that are featured in the game.  Gamers were far from thrilled upon seeing SSX: Deadly Descents and instead of fist bumping or high-fiving their fellow gamers, loyal SSX fans were instead readying their pitchforks to show EA what they really thought of the game.

Replay: Splinter Cell

Posted on April 09, 2011

Fans of this classic Tom Clancy-branded stealth series, prepare to be frustrated! On this week’s episode of Replay, Dan Ryckert, Tim Turi, Andrew Reiner, and I revisit the Xbox release that started the Splinter Cell series. Unfortunately, it’s been a while since we’ve played this game — in the case of Dan and I, we’ve barely ever touched it — so it takes a bit of time to get reacquaint ourselves with the complex control scheme. Like, uh…most of the episode.

Prepare some angry comments for Dan and stick with us for a Replay Roulette where we check out another Xbox…er…classic — this time, with co-op!

Smithsonian extends voting on Art of Video Games exhibit through April 17

Posted on April 06, 2011

We know — you were going to vote for the Smithsonian’s Art of Video Games exhibit, but then your cat got lost, you had extra homework to do and your collection of various Mario figurines needed organizing. But just in case you hadn’t made plans to get your vote in by Thursday, you’re in luck: the voting deadline has been extended to April 17, through the third Sunday of this month.

The vote is trying to narrow down the list to just 80 games set to be featured in an exhibition at the famed museum right around this time next year, so you’ll be helping to make history with your choices. Joining in to vote also sets you up to get advance notification about the winning games, as well as behind-the-scenes information about the exhibit as it’s shown off at the Smithsonian and then toured around the country. So go, vote now – Chrono Trigger isn’t going to pick itself!

Posted on April 04, 2011

After opting to stay coy for nearly two years, Rockstar Games surprised us all last week by unveiling three new images from Max Payne 3. No, Rockstar wasn’t fooling us with an almost twisted April’s Fools’ Day prank as the images were legit and were a tease of an impending reveal.  Of course we didn’t have a clue as to when Rockstar was planning to fill us in on the long in development Max Payne 3, but thankfully Edge managed to get the details on the long awaited return of everyone’s favorite tortured police officer.

Johnny Cage Shows Why He’s So Awesome In This New Mortal Kombat Video

Posted on April 04, 2011

 

Fans of the Mortal Kombat franchise all know that when it comes to being totally cocky and too egotistical that no one trumps Johnny Cage.  The man that’s supposed to be a riff on the Hollywood action stars that we love has been a fan-favorite character since he first appeared in MK1, way back in 1992.  Since debuting as a somewhat obvious parody on Jean-Claude Van Damme, Johnny Cage has since blossomed to become a character whose one-liners and attitude is completely unrivaled by anything we’ve seen before, whether it’s a real person or a completely fictitious one.
