Turok Patch Removes Controversial Team-Kill Feature

50°
343w ago - The controversial feature in the upcoming Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game Turok that rewards players for killing their teammates will be removed with a patch, says publisher Touchstone.

While Turok will ship with the "Grab Bag" achievement intact, the patch will be available online on February 5, the day the game hits store shelves.

The "Grab Bag" achievement was to reward players for killing "at least 1 creature, 1 enemy, 1 teammate, and yourself" in a single online match of the first-person shooter.

After the patch, the achievement will only require you to kill a creature, and enemy, and yourself -- not a teammate.

When the achievement list for the game was unveiled in November, would-be buyers were understandably upset that the developers were actually going to reward the sort of anti-social behavior that already plagues Xbox Live.

Computer And Video Games called it the "worst multiplayer achievement in the history of games."

After the controversy started up, the game's developers at Vancouver-based Propaganda Games said that they would look into releasing a patch after Turok launches "if it does become an issue."

Seems as if they decided instead to get right out in front of it. Since "Grab Bag" only affects the game's online mode, players...

Celebrate Chinese New Year with Sony’s Crazy Sale

50°
343w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Asia is bringing in the year of the Rat with a sale on a bunch of downloadable PlayStation Network games.

From now until February 14, the following games will only cost HK$39 ($5 USD):

>>>LocoRoco! Buu Buu Cocoreccho
>>>Super Rub a Dub
>>>Super Stardust HD
>>>Bacterius
>>>Go Sports! Ski
>>>Piyotama

Not all of these are great deals compared to the US PlayStation Store. Piyotama and Go Sports! Ski actually cost more, but the excellent Super Stardust HD is being sold at half price if you bother to set up a Hong Kong PSN account and add money to it. Perhaps, a better deal is Sony's catalog of downloadble PSP RPGs will be sold at half price. That means you can snag the unreleased Tenchi no Mon 2, Blade Dancer, and Rezel Cross for around a cool eight US dollars. The downside is the games are in Chinese, which probably means few people are going to take advantage of the promotion.

Still, it's always interesting to see companies offer Lunar New Year promotions. Last year Microsoft sold Xbox 360 game packs branded with a smiling pig.

Mercenaries 2: World of Flames release date announcement coming next week?

343w ago - Mercenaries 2: World of Flames release date announcement coming next week?

We reported yesterday that Electronic Arts could be planning to release Mercenaries 2: World of Flames on 25th August 2008 if Two online retailer listings from Amazon and Gamestop proved to be correct.

EA has confirmed to us that these dates are incorrect: "We don't actually have any confirmed dates for Mercs 2 at the moment, either internally or externally, so I think these retailers may be jumping the gun a little. We should have more details after our global marketing meeting next week."

EA could announce a release date for Mercenaries 2: World of Flames sometime next week. We'll let you know if we hear anything.
