A Closer Look at Prototype

50°
347w ago - Alright, I have to admit -- when I first learned about Prototype when it was first revealed in Game Informer, I was still a little unsure on how the team behind the Hulk video games would be able to accomplish something on such a massive scale.

A full recreation of New York City, coupled with a protagonist with superhuman shape-shifting abilities, wrapped in Coop gameplay, with that much chaos and destruction happening all around you? It sounded too good to be true.





Thankfully, in this recent video by XPlay, there's no doubt in my mind that this is really the game I have been looking for all of these years. As you can see from the demo footage, right out of the gate, Prototype looks absolutely gorgeous in the midst of all of that insanity. Bullets are flying, Apache Helicopters are swooping around, and tanks are rolling in, all with the intent of blowing you up. However, with the inclusion of all of your strongest powers right from the start, these guys have their work cut out for them if they want to take down this bulldozer of a beast.

The best part is that this game is only 20% done. How much more can they honestly pack in? Prototype already looks to be an instant hit with gamers when it comes out this Summer.
 

ICE dethaws old R:FOM crash; claims hack LOL!

50°
347w ago - On iRC EFnet #PS3News tonight 'Team ICE' (alec, streetskaterfu, iqd) approached CJPC showing him a video (below) of a 2007 R:FOM crash/hang/lag in which they falsely claim "OMFG we can hack/run unsigned code 9111!"

Both the claim/video are worth about as much as the recently released P3DXLoad Video, however, the tards are posting:





"First we found an exploit to run SELF files in gameos. Then we coded an application which converts ELF files into runable SELF files. We can load these with our exploit. The coding is not finished, we still have to clean the code, that we will get an screen output. The SELF files are running, but screen doesnt show this atm. When this is fixed we could release a "hello world"."

Sadly, this is false and an utter waste of time. For starters, the 'exploit' used to launch the code is quite dated. It uses Resistance: Fall Of Man to copy a replacement EBOOT.BIN to the PS3's HDD. This is quite similiar to the Warhawk method detailed here and here,...

Report: PS3 comback, shallow Wii, tepid portables in '08

50°
347w ago - According to IGN GamerMetrics, which monitors the traffic patterns of some 15 million hardcore gamers, the PlayStation 3 is "poised to make a run" in 2008 thanks to strong interest in Metal Gear Solid 4, Killzone 2, Devil May Cry 4, and LittleBigPlanet, three of which are exclusive.

"The combined interest in upcoming PlayStation 3 software pulled the PS3 even with the Xbox 360," reads the report, "which suggests that Sony could be on the verge of its long awaited comeback."

With regards to Nintendo, the stat-tracking ninjas at GamerMetrics predict another banner year for company thanks to Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Mario Kart Wii, and Wii Fit, but that the "Wii software lineup still lacks depth."

And gamers hoping for fewer sequels and more fun on the go may be sad to learn that established franchises will continue to dominate and there will be a "relative lull for DS and PSP" games in 2008, says the report.

There's always next year...
