Mass Effect Coming to iPhone, Hopefully the Elevator Rides Will be Short

Mass Effect Coming to iPhone, Hopefully the Elevator Rides Will be Short
You’re probably aware that the sequel to Bioware’s blockbuster action RPG Mass Effect is already in the works, but did you also know that a prequel will also be released? And that it’s on the iPhone?

Rumored LEGO Rock Band Game is Actually Real

Rumored LEGO Rock Band Game is Actually Real
It sounded like something from a Penny Arcade panel, but in reality, it’s the newest Rock Band game: LEGO Rock Band, complete with minifig musicians with blocky little instruments. The toyed-up version is due this holiday season, not long after The Beatles: Rock Band. At this point, I would typically make fun of the silliness (and potential awesomeness) of this title, but I’m distracted by the Jack White-ness of the above character.

American Mcgee’S Alice Returns for New Ea Game

American Mcgee’S Alice Returns for New Ea Game
It’s been almost a decade since American McGee’s twisted take on a Wonderland fueled by insanity, American McGee’s Alice, but Electronic Arts is teaming up with McGee’s Spicy Horse to produce a sequel to the gothic game.

Ea’S Hachi Koi: It’S About Touching Girls

Ea’S Hachi Koi: It’S About Touching Girls
The ol’ “hero/heroine is about to die, so must seize life” theme is an oft-used one in all forms of literature, and Electronic Arts’ Hachi Koi is adding its own spin to the old saw, except in this Nintendo DS game, instead of seizing life, you’re tasked with seizing girl flesh.

Ea Sends Classic Literature to Hell With Dante’S Inferno

Ea Sends Classic Literature to Hell With Dante’S Inferno
Of all the things in the world that could possibly be used as inspiration for any sort of video game, the last thing you might expect Electronic Arts to fall back on is Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy.

Mirror’S Edge Gets Flattened Into 2-D

Mirror’S Edge Gets Flattened Into 2-D
It looks like the new hit 3-D action platform video game Mirror’s Edge has just gotten a makeover as a 2-D Flash mini-game you can play right in you web browser. The guys over at Borne Games have created this flattened version of the game (in partnership with EA), and it’s kind of reminiscent of classic Prince of Persia type of game when squished into just 2 dimensions.

Rock Band Guitar String Mod Kit Available for Purchase

Rock Band Guitar String Mod Kit Available for Purchase
I’m as addicted to Rock Band as the next gaming geek, but I still wish the strum bar on the game’s Fender Stratocaster felt more like a real guitar string. Now you get your hands on a mod kit which will let you swap out the plastic strum bar with an actual metal guitar string. Originally a one-of-a-kind guitar mod designed by a guy going by the name A4AJ, it’s now available as a (patent-pending) kit you can install on your own guitar.

PS3 Rainbow Six Vegas Casemod

PS3 Rainbow Six Vegas Casemod
I don’t know what it is about the PlayStation 3, but there are very few people out there who’ve dared to attempt any sort of casemodding for the shiny black console. So I was tickled when I came across this PS3 mod which cleverly integrates the curvaceous lines of Sony’s latest gaming system. Inspired by the game Rainbow Six Vegas, the console is disguised as a casino tower in the midst of the Vegas Strip.

Portal Companion Cube Accompanies You Anywhere

Portal Companion Cube Accompanies You Anywhere
Know someone who’s addicted to Portal? Here’s the perfect holiday gift for the obsessive fan of The Orange Box’s mindbending first-person puzzler. Inspired by the game’s handy Weighted Companion Cube, this pendant will accompany you through the test chamber of life.

Simcity Bricks Your System, Literally

Simcity Bricks Your System, Literally
This has got to be one of the best video game promotional items that I’ve ever come across. It’s so simple, yet brilliant. It’s an actual custom-cast brick that was used to promote the classic MAXIS/EA city-building game SimCity 2000. The rare item is currently available for bid over on eBay, but is located in the UK, so shipping a heavy brick across the pond might set you back a bit of coin.

This week, a handful of us bloggers had the opportunity to hang out at EA’s sprawling headquarters in Redwood Shores, CA to meet with the team that created the new MySims game for the Nintendo Wii.

Rock Band Price and Release Date

Rock Band Price and Release Date
It looks like the full version of the highly-anticipated interactive music game Rock Band now has a price and release date. I was over on Amazon earlier today and came across this product listing: Listing a November 20th release date, the $199 “Rock Band Collection” for the Xbox 360 and PS3 looks like it’s a complete set that includes the game and all of the instruments.

Burnout 5 Looking Oh So Sweet

Burnout 5 Looking Oh So Sweet
The folks over at Destructoid got their hands on some new screens from a recent issue of PSM magazine. From what I understand, these are from the PS3 version of the game. I especially dig the shot with the car jumping between the train cars.
