New Aibo PS3, PSP Compatible?

50°
346w ago - It looks like Ash may have been right. Stuff magazine is running a rumor item on the possibility of an upcoming Aibo, the robotic dog, working with the Playstation Portable and Playstation 3. The rumor goes that the Sony Aibo PS, as they call it, is being resuscitated by Sony's Playstation division in an attempt to "bolster the PS3's arsenal."

The Aibo PS will appear with its own avatar within Home and react in the real world as he does in the PS3's upcoming interactive environment, according to the article. The rumor article goes on to say that you will be able to download new personalities for the dog from the Playstation Network and that the dog will be fully controllable using a PSP via WiFi. The dog's head camera will send a real world vid feed to the PSP's screen as well. The Dpad will control walking movement and the four main buttons will deal with head movement, which seems odd.

The Stuff folks rate this rumor as having a 53 percent probability. Seems like a cool concept, but I wonder if there's the market for it to hit the real world. Who am I kidding? A remote control dog that can send live video from its head, sign me up for a baker's dozen.

Portal is the most subversive game ever

50°
346w ago - This modern masterpiece shakes the FPS genre to the very core.. Warning: The text you are about to read contains heady intellectual discourse and is not recommended for anyone made queasy by the discussion of feminist film theory or psychoanalytical signifiers.

Since its release two months ago, Portal has met with overwhelming popular and critical success thanks to its quirky physics and dystopian humor. Yet beneath the mainstream success lies the most subversive first-person shooter (FPS) ever created. Portal is essentially a feminist critique of the FPS genre, flawlessly executed from within the margins it assails. Gender politics just got a whole lot more fun.

Deconstructing the term "first-person shooter" reveals two fundamental concepts of the game mechanic. "First-person" is a personal pronoun that provides linguistic context, or origo, to enable discourse. It is a perspective. "Shooter" describes the discourse that is to occur, specifically the shooting and ultimately killing of the other participants. Thus, a "first-person shooter" is easily identifiable by its specific perceptual presentation of game events, and the presence of a gun or other weapon.

The gun is typically regarded as a phallic symbol of masculine agency, through which power is won and maintained. In any first-person...
 

High Velocity Bowling Review for PS3

50°
346w ago - Bowling hits the Playstation 3 care of a nice $9.99 download from the Playstation Online Store (PSN).

Ah yes... the game of bowling. There is nothing like going to the dark, dank bowling alley and renting some soggy bowling shoes that a thousand other smelly, stinky, sweaty feet have worn and hitting the lanes. Bowling is a game that everybody from Grandma to your own children (break out the bumpers) can get into. And for many years dating all the way back to the Atari 2600, bowling has always been transformed into a videogame. The game has reached new heights with Wii Sports (mainly Wii Bowling).

Wii Sports for the Nintendo Wii has been one of the most popular games in the last few years. The game has launched the Nintendo Wii into orbit. And Wii Bowling itself has been a huge gaming phenomenon. The elderly/college dorms have weekly tournaments and the game has people who do not normally play game systems putting their moves on for Wii Bowling. Families get together and play. The thing is huge!

So now Sony has jumped in on the bowling bandwagon. And much like the Wii's motion-controller gimmick, High Velocity Bowling uses the PS3 Sixaxis controller as a selling point. High Velocity Bowling sells for $9.99 on the PSN Store. So how does this game stack up against Wii Sports? First, the only...
