Video: Groovin' Blocks is Available Today on PlayStation Network

213w ago - Empty Clip Studios' Managing Partner Matt Shores has shared a trailer video and announced that beginning today Groovin' Blocks is available on PlayStation Network.

To quote: This is Matt from Empty Clip Studios. We're a small game developer that aims to put out games that you'll want to play over and over.

We're stoked to spread the word about our first PlayStation Network title, Groovin' Blocks. Groovin' Blocks is a genre-bending music-based puzzle game.

Many times people give it a quick look and say "Wait, isn't this just a match-3 game?" HELL no! If you love graphics-based block puzzles and games set to rocking beats, then Groovin' Blocks is your gaming dream come true.

In Groovin' Blocks, you play directly with the beat of the music. See those bright moving columns on the side? You will notice that as the song plays, they come towards the board where all of your blocks are falling.

Once they hit the side, they will "flash" and disappear. That flashing is where you want to hit down on the SIXAXIS controller and settle your blocks. Sounds easy, doesn't it? Well, now you add on that match-3 component and you have yourself something...
 

Microsoft Blocks Unauthorized XBox 360 Storage Devices

235w ago - Update: According to SeattlePI.com, Datel has now filed an antitrust lawsuit in San Francisco federal court against Microsoft over their incompatible Max Memory cards.

Today Microsoft's Major Nelson has warned that next week's XBox 360 update will see the blocking of unauthorized storage devices such as the XBox 360 Memory Unit 512MB or XBox 360 Max Memory Card 2GB.

To quote: When Preview Program members start receiving the Xbox 360 system update next week, one of the changes is that unauthorized Memory Units will no longer work with the Xbox 360.

If you've moved your profile or saved games onto one to "back it up," you'd better move it back onto an authorized Xbox 360 storage device prior to taking the update.

If you continue to use an unauthorized Memory Unit after the update, you will not be able to access your stored profile or saved games.

If you need help identifying officially licensed Xbox 360 storage devices or accessories you can read more about the...
 

Wii System Menu 4.2 Released, Deletes and Blocks Homebrew

550°
238w ago - It appears Nintendo has released another Wii System Menu update today to version 4.2.

Like previous updates, this latest revision will both delete and block Wii homebrew... and in some cases destroy consoles, so be aware of this before updating your console.

It's also a mandatory update in order to access the Wii Shop Channel.

To quote: "I have NO idea why Nintendo loves to send me those update messages at midnight... alas, they keep doing it. Anyway, this time it was to let us know that the Wii has a System Update waiting: Firmware 4.2.

Now, the weird thing is, Nintendo hasn't even announced this yet! That's right, it just hits your system and no official release is made.

As such, there is not much information on what exactly this 4.2 update does exactly... Obviously, it attempts to override any form of hacking, homebrewing, or illegal software loaders (and according to reports, it does so fairly well, deleting the ever-famous Homebrew Channel and all custom IOS installed in tampered Wiis)."
