A number of eBay sellers are doing what Square Enix didn’t have the guts to do and are selling just the demo voucher for Final Fantasy XV, which comes with the PS4 and Xbox One game Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.
EA has announced that it will be offering a downloadable co-op demo for its videogame Army of Two The Devil’s Cartel. The game demo will be available to download for Xbox 360 and PS3 gamers on March 12, 2013.
There are few things worse than spending your hard-earned money on a video game and then finding out it’s crap. To avoid this problem I typically download the demo first and decide if it’s a good game before I spend my $50 or $60.
Watch out Mario, you’re not the only blue-collar platformer who’s also in the saving the world business. Currently in development by the Hitbox Team, Dustforce! stars a high-jumping, energetic sweeper. He hates dust and dirt so much that he won’t even touch gold coins until he’s cleaned the treasure chest where they’re stored, whereas Mario just leaves the rubble of the bricks he breaks in his wake.
With the robot-loving Japanese here in the East, DARPA in the West and nerd-filled universities all over the world, Skynet will arrive, in one form or another. We should take this opportunity to train to become members of the Resistance, granted to us by our comrade Gridlockshock, aka Kevin Bryant of the Art Institute in Dallas.
Last month, Microsoft’s worldwide marketing manager Ryan Moore said that hardcore gamers will be the first to buy Kinect (but not because Kinect is for hardcore players, he just assumed that hardcore players were the type to embrace new tech).
Here’s a sharp contrast to the Kinect demo I talked about yesterday. IGN’s Executive Editor Greg Miller got to try out the PlayStation Move. Unfortunately Miller only had a tech demo with him, unlike yesterday where we saw some wonderful graphics courtesy of Forza.
The guys at Futuremark just took wraps off the latest version of their 3DMark benchmarking suite, and it’s guaranteed to put your graphic chipset through the most aggressive set of tests it’s ever been tasked with.
Actually no, I love my sweaty hands and my knobby fingers. But UK-based BeBionic‘s fully articulated myo-electric hands look menacing, making the simple act of gripping an apple or playing Jenga seem like part of a diabolical scheme.
I’m not really sure what all is going on with rComplex beyond the fact that I’m certain a giant squid-thing chasing you is bad (very, very bad), but the stark, simple visuals made me stop in my tracks.
Anything that starts out of a suggestion from Penny-Arcade’s Mike Krahulik & Jerry Holkins – aka Gabe & Tycho – is bound to be geeky, and this one is no exception. The duo visited the Entertainment Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University and ended up chatting with a bunch of students that were using a Surface, Microsoft’s multitouch wonder computer.
If you’re one of the folks not convinced by the necessity of Left 4 Dead 2 when there’s a perfectly good Left 4 Dead game already around, released just last year, then next month’s demo may help you ruminate further on the possibilities of zombie-hunting in New Orleans.
In an interview with USA Today, Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto revealed that the upcoming New Super Mario Bros. video game on the Wii will have an optional feature, tentatively called “Demo Play.” I could describe Demo Play using a single word, but instead I’ll let Miyamoto-sama explain: “In New Super Mario Bros.
How many times have you plunked down your hard earned cash on a new game for your mobile phone, only to find out the game sucked? Now you can try out full (time-limited) versions of many mobile games right in your web browser before you decide to buy.
Big news tonight for Xbox 360 fans… A demo of the anxiously anticipated FPS, Bioshock has hit the Xbox Live Marketplace tonight.
The demo weighs in at a hefty 1.3 gig, so you’ll probably end up leaving your console on overnight (like me) to grab the full download.
The folks over at LucasArts are showing off some pretty cool new tech that’s planned for the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, planned for next-generation consoles.
The first video shows off the enhanced AI engine (called “Euphoria”) which provides each enemy with a “central nervous system,” which makes them intelligent and emotional reactions to stimuli in their environment:
The second video shows off “Digital Molecular Matter,” which provides objects with much more realistic physical properties than seen in other game engines.
