Operation: (Warhawk) Omega Dawn

50°
365w ago - According to Dylan Jobe (Game Director, Warhawk): We've just finished development of our v1.2 patch and our first Booster Pack, Operation: Omega Dawn!... which is very different than "Red Dawn" or "Dawn of the Dead".

I'd like to give our blog readers a bit of info on our first downloadable content - and I'll try to keep in away from sounding to much like a sales-pitch filled with shallow marketing-speak. The team and I really wanted the Omega Dawn Booster pack to add a new gameplay experience and to enhance the replay value of the core Warhawk game. Not be some nickel-and-dime upgrade that takes advantage of our player community!!! (That's my own personal opinion on DLC so I'll get off my soapbox now)

So without further ado...

The Omega Dawn Booster pack adds 3 key things:

* A night-time battlefield with 6 layouts called the "Omega Factory". It's huge btw.
* New 7-player aircraft called the KT-424 Combat Dropship.
* And 5 updated bonus layouts for battlefields from the original game so that you can play using the new Dropship.

First let me ramble on about the new battlefield: Many of you all wanted a night time level so that's what we did. The battlefield takes place at night well... actually at early dawn. We wanted to...

Ratchet & Clank Future 2 will give more background on history

50°
365w ago - In the below video interview with two developers from Insomniac Games talk about creating Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. In the interview they are asked about things they had to cut from the game, which gives some interesting hints at Ratchet & Clank Future 2 about 2:30 minutes in.

To quote the answer: "There were certain things in the story, characters that I wanted to address more in this part of the story arch that we're not going to address until a later part of the story arch. So I can't go into too much of who they were. ... For instance the Max Apogee [the Lombax Anthropologist] story arch is something that we were not going into too deep, but we hint at it. And more of the background with the Lombaxes and what happened to them. It's things we hint at. The Zonie and the history of the Zonian and who they are. There's a lot of background to the world. If you interact with a lot of the NPC characters, you'll find out a lot of hints about it."

Watch what the Ratchet & Clank Future team have to say about their PS3-exclusive platformer game.

Nice to know they will continue the series.
 

PS3 Cracks Quicker Than the Rest, Passwords That Is

400°
365w ago - Want to get yourself some money in double quick time, or get hold of some top secret government documents? Then why not use your PS3 to crack some passwords faster than ever before!

Security researcher Nick Breese has harnessed the power of the PS3's cell processor to allow him to crack passwords with only a few hours work - despite formerly taking days to solve.

An Intel chip can go through 10-15 million cycles a second, whereas the PS3's chip can get through 1.4 billion.

"Brute force" password cracking is a simple method of simply trying every possible combination of characters until the correct combination is found. Having multiple cores in the PS3 chip allows it to try several passwords at once, speeding up the work greatly.

Don't panic though! You won't have a PS3 breaking into your bank account any time soon, though, as these eight-character passwords are rudimentary when compared to the sophisticated encryption used to protect online transactions and similar transfers of important information.
 

Playstation 3 Turns Into Useless Brick After Firmware Update 2.01

50°
365w ago - Want your own BrickStation 3? Upgrade to 2.01 and hold your breath... Starting last week, PS3 owners started reporting that their next gen console would not read their Blu-Ray discs. Some users reported that their PS3 would not even read DVDs. All reports started to come in after gamers made the upgrade to 2.01.

"I inserted Blu Ray Disc into PS3 for first time and movie appeared under video tab. It started to play and i started skipping previews and then all of a sudden screen went blank. I went back to PS3 home screen and tried ejected and inserting Blu Ray movie back into PS3 and the icon fails to appear under the video tab. I then tried DVD and that did not appear either. PS3 Games still work. Please help!"

Today when I myself tried to update my PS3 to 2.01, I was left with a half bricked PS3. What I mean by this is that I can longer use any media that resembles a severely flattened donut on my PS3. This includes cds, dvds, games, and blu-ray disks. Some of you may be familiar with the message of "Disc Unreadable/ Unrecognized", however this does not even show up when a disc is inserted.

Tomorrow I am heading over to Best Buy to swap it out, and perhaps you should you should too if you have the best buy warranty. However, while this solution will get you back up and running quickly,...
