Dark Sector: Bloodiest Game Ever?

200°
347w ago - We've seen plenty of games that featured a ton of blood in the past. It'd be difficult to name them all, in fact, but it's very possible that we haven't seen the most brutal depictions of violence just yet. No, there could be a new winner in the "ultimate blood-letting" category come March, and its name is Dark Sector.

First off, Games Radar has been playing an early build of the game, and they report that despite a huge number of bugs (all of which should disappear before the final product arrives), the game is both promising and gritty as all hell. We'll be using the over-the-shoulder aiming view we all enjoyed in Resident Evil 4, but even RE4 has nothing on Dark Sector when it comes to "splash damage" via impact. There's just blood everywhere, apparently, and perhaps this is due in part to the invention of the Glaive. The nasty weapon is similar to a giant ninja star crossed with a boomerang, and has the capability of shearing off limbs and heads. Combine the Glaive with a "disturbing level of detail," and you've got a game that gore aficionados are just going to adore.

If you want more details on the Glaive, check out the latest developer interview where they talk at great length about the conception and implementation of the weapon. Dark Sector is definitely going to live and die with the Glaive. In...
 

BioWare: Mass Effect not slated for PS3... for now

100°
347w ago - Chris Priestly, a BioWare community coordinator has commented that Mass Effect for the PS3 is just a rumor at this stage. However, he comments that BioWare could make Mass Effect for the PS3 in the future but they are not working on this currently.

To quote: They sure didn't. They paid over $860 million.

Sorry folks, this is just another rumor at this stage. Could BioWare make Mass Effect for the PS3 (or the PC, or some other platform) in the future? Yes we could, but we are not working on a PS3 version currently.

I don't know who Mr Pachter is. Maybe he's a PS3 owner who wants to play Mass Effect.
 

Beware of the fake PS3 HDD ISO Loader

50°
347w ago - Update: It now appears the auction was pulled, go figure The page currently shows only, "This listing (250201066945) has been removed or is no longer available."

Our attention has been brought to an auction which is promoting what is undoubtedly a fake PS3 HDD ISO loader.

The seller in this claims that you just install the software and from there on in play your games directly from the HD on the PS3... obviously this is fake, but it makes a nice laugh for the day.
 

LittleBigPlanet on UK Launch Pad

300°
347w ago - Sony's great white hope - the quite wonderful looking LittleBigPlanet - looks nearer to finding its way into our homes, with Sony insiders confirming they are working to get the game out in the UK for this September.

The game - which was unveiled to universal applause at last year's Games Developer Conference - is currently being developed by British company Media Molecule. It is one of the highest profile exponents of a new generation of games placing an emphasis on creativity, giving players a blank canvas to explore co-operatively and making full use of the PlayStation Network to deliver patches and user generated content. It's continued to impress at subsequent outings at E3 and the Tokyo Game Show, and if it manages to realise its lofty ambitions it could well prove to be Sony's killer app.

The September release date may be a little later than many had hoped - initial mummurings suggested the first quarter of this year - but at least it gives us something to look forward to towards the end of the year. As soon as more concrete details emerge, we'll be sure to let you know.
 

Hero Showdown: Dante vs. Kratos

50°
347w ago - Another year, another Showdown. The first Hero Showdown of 2008 kicks off by going to the mats with two titans of the gaming world, guys who have a history of pissing off and picking fights with gods and devils: Devil May Cry's Dante vs. God of War's Kratos.

Last time on Hero Showdown, Homer Simpson took Peter Griffith to the mattresses, and earned a first-place trophy filled with Duff in the process. Sector 7G's "best" employee scored 65.8% of the vote, leaving Quahog's lovable chicken fighter with 34.1%.

The latest installment of HS promises to deliver an ass-kicking of biblical proportions, as the half-devil, half-man-child takes on a former Spartan-turned-deity. And audience participation is encouraged, so check out the profiles below, add a comment or six, and cast your vote in the poll below. Fights don't get any easier than that.

So let's do this:

Dante

The star of Capcom's Devil May Cry series since 2001, Dante is the son of a mortal woman and a devil lieutenant who managed the not-so-easy task of conquering and imprisoning the Devil (Satan, Lucifer, Disney, he has many names...). With an origin like that (and frosted, metro hair) it is no surprise that Dante has some violent tendencies. But what demon-slaying mercenary doesn't?

With twin handguns...
