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.
Capcom today confirmed that Dead Rising 2 is coming to not only the Xbox 360, but to the PS3 and PC too. Not too much else is known yet, but any game that involves bashing zombies over the head with a roulette wheel is fine by me.
Afro Samurai is weird. On one hand, it’s laden with cliches. Bad guy kills father, son becomes a brooding, killer line spewing killing machine bent on revenge. Severed heads and limbs and blood fly. On the other hand, the hero is a black samurai in a futuristic-feudal Japan whose nemesis is for all intents and purposes a charming undead cowboy.
You’ve probably seen or at least heard of Matt Harding, a videogame developer who danced his way to internet fame. His videos remind us that we live in a beautiful world filled with beautiful people, but above all his videos remind us that dancing is a talent that few people are privileged to have.
Matt is not one of them.
People have been using Linden Labs’ virtual world Second Life as a meeting space for a while, so I’m not surprised to hear that people are doing the same in PlayStation Home, Sony’s own avatar-driven online social community.
For all you headbangers out there, the guitars that come with the Rock Band and Guitar Hero games probably seem kind of tame lame. Well now you can truly rock out with this axe that’s more appropriate for your thrashing tendencies.
dreamGEAR’s new WarBeast controller for the Playstation 3 has the looks of a serious heavy metal guitar.
Why the heck would you drop $200 to $400 on a brand new console when you could get the same thing for a fraction of the price? Oh yeah, I neglected to mention that these alternate universe clones of the Xbox 360 and PS3 are crappy knock-offs from China – and that they only play 8-bit games.
These cheap-o fakes come courtesy of the shady sounding Rodisson Technologies Company, who only ask that you place a minimum wholesale order of 10,000 pieces if you want to get your hands on one of these 8-bit versions of popular modern-day gaming systems.
Katamari Damacy is an undeniably awesome franchise, but it’s also a little on the weird side, so it’s not exactly surprising that Keita Takahashi’s next project is a little unusual. Noby Noby Boy puts the player into the shoes role of an unfortunately shaped something charged with eating and stretching your way through a minimalist world.
To what end do you roll and stretch?
Real fans don’t buy action figures, whether or not they’re commercially available. Buying things is for wimps. No, the real fan breaks out the paint, dismembers currently-existing figures, and then the real fan makes their own action figures, like Chris Hooton did for the horror game Dead Space.
Dead Space borrows heavily from other material–most notably, science fiction classic Solaris–so it’s only fitting that Hooton’s custom figure borrowed heavily from another figure.
There is a glut of Sackboy stuff out in the wilds of the internet, celebrating everything LittleBigPlanet. You can get soft Sackboy dolls and spend your days watching videos of Sackboys (and girls) cavorting in custom levels, but if there’s one thing we’ve lacked, it’s Sackboy clothing.
Now, instead of dressing your Sackboys, you can dress up as a Sackboy.
Just in case you haven’t spent enough money on your PS3, there’s a hot new attachment, just in time for the holidays: a wireless keypad add-on designed to make communicating simple.
At $49.99, the add-on may seem a little expensive, particularly when most gamers gravitate toward voice-communication in online gaming, but sometimes a little typing is necessary.
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.
I just started playing Little Big Planet on my PS3, and while the built-in levels are truly a sight to behold, the really wondrous thing about the game is all of the community content that’s starting to surface.
I love my PS3, and I love a good game of Tetris, but unlike Oscar the Grouch, I don’t know if I can say that I love trash. Still, this offbeat new game in the works combines all three into a single, juicy delicious morsel of gaming that could be the most addictive garbage collection game this side of Katamari Damacy.
Spotted at the recent 2008 Tokyo Game Show, Gomibako is best described as “Tetris with Trash”.
Let me start by saying that I’m really looking forward to playing in the virtual sandbox of the upcoming Little Big Planet for the PS3 when it hits stores later this month. But I could never imagine building something as amazingly intricate as this.
PlayStation 3 fanatic Upsilandre spent countless hours building this incredible calculator using the Little Big Planet Beta demo.
