I personally don’t believe in it since if Kaz Hirai has already said that the PS3 hasn’t even reached it’s half-life or its full potential, then I doubt the Xbox360 has either. The 360 was released roughly one year ahead of the PS3, making it slighter older than 5 years. Microsoft itself has mentioned that the 360 will persist until 2015, but of course, that probably also hints that development for it may start now. More »
Otome games may be wildly popular in Japan, but they’ve yet to catch on in other parts of the world, which definitely makes Winter Wolves‘ newest game, Love and Order, a unique game right off the bat. The way it was advertised as a “dating/office sim” game with a storyline steeped in the elements of mystery only served to intrigue me more. More »

Funcom has just released a new trailer for their upcoming MMO The Secret World. The new trailer offers gamers a unique glimpse into the world, the monsters, the myths, and the gameplay of this secret world. It looks like an action-MMO, rather then an RPG-based one. The graphics are impressive for this trailer, and it looks fast-paced.
So there are helpful Kinect hacks, and then really weird ones (floor-piano any one?). Then there are the ones that can be a revolution. From Triangle Productions, they’ve hacked the Kinect to create very convincing 3D human animation by using the technology in Kinect for their CGI cartoon series, “Under the HUD.” More »
That was the most painful scavenger hunt I have ever been through. In Kingdom Hearts: Recoded, once you get to Hallow Bastion, you have to unlock a door that requires you to get 4 emblem pieces. I have never taken so long to locate a missing piece before. And it’s all because of the camera. More »
Not a scene in a desert this time– Naughty Dog has just released roughly a 2 minute in-game cutscene for Uncharted 3. This time, the trailer reveals the new villian behind the game– Katharine Marlowe, an elderly British woman whose real objective is still unclear. She seems like a very interesting villian, considering the two before her were ruthless and very greedy men. She’s definitely on the opposite side of Lazarevic, the villian in Uncharted 2.

So, I’m past the beginners stage of the Wakfu Beta. But I still found myself really really weak because the highest I could hit those bunnies is a 4. And … that’s not very high in my mind (in Ragnarok I hit up to 50’s by the time I got out of the tutorial)! But that’s Ragnarok, and not Wakfu. So either my character is just really really weak, or that’s normal to have. Either way, I was a bit hesitant when I walked through that portal. More »
