The Game-Changing Additions to XCOM: Enemy Within Detailed

50°
26w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman detailed some of the game-changing additions to XCOM: Enemy Within below today.

To quote: XCOM: Enemy Unknown was one of 2012′s gaming triumphs; an obsessively playable sci-fi epic that injected new life into the turn-based tactics genre.

As the commander of the counter-extraterrestrial agency XCOM, you faced impossible choices on both a macro and micro level. Send aid to China and risk upsetting Africa? Send a trooper into harm's way to save a high-level comrade, or eat the loss and regroup from a stronger defensive position? XCOM is at its best when the stakes are highest.

With XCOM: Enemy Within, legendary developer Firaxis is expanding on the foundation of the original with tons of new maps, new equipment, new aliens, a mechanized soldier class, and new genemods that can transform your troopers into superhuman killing machines. We caught up with Lead Designer Ananda Gupta to get the inside scoop, and we sent him some of your questions.

BVAidan: Is this a new game or an add on? I'm new to the series and don't know much about XCOM.

Ananda Gupta: It's an expansion to last year's XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and on PS3 you'll be able to get all of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, all the DLC that was released for that game, and...

Video: Dust 514 Interview: Changing Console Shooters Forever

300°
132w ago - Today SCEE Manager James Gallagher has shared a video trailer and interview with Dust 514 on how it will change console shooters forever below!

To quote: We haven't heard a great deal about DUST 514 since it was shown at E3 2011, other than that it's a first-person shooter connected to the vast sci-fi universe of PC MMO EVE Online, and that it's coming exclusively to PlayStation 3.

When developers CCP made the trip from Iceland to London to outline their vision for this new addition to their immensely popular EVE universe, I came out of the meeting amazed at the scale of the project. Suffice to say, DUST 514 is not just another shooter.

After the meeting, I interrogated Brandon Laurino, Executive Producer at CCP, to find out exactly why PlayStation 3 owners should be getting excited.

PS.Blog: With EVE Online, CCP already has a huge, engaged community. Why are you now trying to break into the console FPS market?

Brandon: EVE Online is an incredibly deep MMO and, for better or worse, that comes with a typical perception that it is complicated. The common joke is that you have to overcome a 'learning cliff' to get involved.

Part of the thinking behind DUST 514 is to address those preconceptions; we accept that there is a barrier...
 

XBox 360 Spekter Color-Changing GhostCase is Reviewed!

200°
175w ago - In the last few days I recieved the latest color changing XBox 360 Spekter GhostCase to review.

For those unaware, this XBox 360 case mod changes color as you play- the hotter your XBox 360 gets, the more it changes color.

The kit included all needed tools to open the XBox 360 case, if you ever opened one of these you know how handy the tools are.

Box Contents:
  • XBox 360 top and bottom shell
  • Matching Faceplate
  • DVD Tray Bezel with Buttons
  • DVD Drive Lid (Compatable with Sansung, Hitachi & BenQ only)
  • Universal Plug and Play dual LED Light Kit (I recieved Blue)
  • Case Opening Tools

The Install: The supplied parts were of a high quality plastic (not at all thin and flimsy) and went together fairly easily. The rear clips did aggravate me not wanting to clip together at first. After all was said and done I proceeded to clip on the HD, however, the rear slot for the hard drive wasn't exactly the same as the drive and wouldn't let the HD click in place correctly. This was fixed easy enough with a hobby knife and a steady hand.

Pros:
  • Lightweight parts and high quality plastic.
  • Very in-depth instructions...
