GameSpot's 2008 Game of the Year is Metal Gear Solid 4

50°
312w ago - GameSpot's list of finalists calls out the top 10 games of 2008 on all platforms. This year's deliberations weren't easy; there were so many fantastic games of exceptional quality that simply cutting down a list to 10 finalists was a difficult task on its own.

Making the top 10 list is definitely an accomplishment in itself, a nod to 10 games that stood out among a banner year's worth of outstanding games of all genres and on all platforms.

And yes, determining the single winner for Game of the Year 2008 was even tougher. But determine a winner we did.

Top 5 Exclusive XBox 360 Games of 2009

50°
312w ago - The XBox 360 had a great year in 2008, featuring a couple of great exclusives in Gears of War 2 and Fable II. In 2009, here are the top 5 exclusive picks:

Halo 3: ODST - Given Microsoft's complete lack of clarity on their 2009 line-up, the only title that they're currently (and exclusively) offering in 2009 that I am interested in is Halo 3: ODST. Despite Halo 3 being somewhat of a disappointment to me, I find myself irresistibly excited by the prospect of a new Halo game.

The series still has some kick ass weapons, great maps and fantastic controls to boot–and with it being Bungie developed, it's a safe bet to be one of the better titles of the year. It certainly doesn't hurt that it'll be a budget priced game, either.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope - I'm a sucker for RPG's, and I'm also a sucker for Star Ocean games. I remember playing the first Star Ocean way back when it was first released. I'll be truthful in saying I haven't playing every single one, but now that it's finally coming to the 360 I couldn't be more excited. Not too much information has been revealed about The Last Hope, but it looks like it will be a beautiful game at the very least.

Splinter Cell: Conviction - Splinter Cell Conviction has been long awaited ever since...
 

Call of Duty: World at War for PlayStation 3 Savegame Bug Found?

100°
312w ago - Dutch site PS3Life (linked above) is reporting that a savegame bug in Call of Duty: World at War has been found which can leave your savegame unreadable and corrupt. The bug is only said to happen in the single player campaign, and occurs in the levels where you play as a Russian soldier.

To quote, roughly translated: Call of Duty: World at War is without doubt the most played PS3 game this year-end, though many people readily admit that they left full singleplayer miss.

Fortunately, because now we get more and more reports of a bug in the singleplayer campaign, which in charge of your save game gives an error message that says you savegame unreadable, and you then again at the start of the current set of levels set.

This bug occurs in the levels where you play with the Russian soldier, NOT in the first levels with the American soldier!

PS3life would ever know how many gamers who played the singleplayer here affected by this. Have you bought the game, and does this happen to you? Comment below!
 

BBC Study Finds 40 Percent of MMORPG Gamers Are Bi-Females

50°
312w ago - The BBC reports that a study has found an unusually high level of bisexuality among women who play online MMO's. The study looked at 2,400 members of the population who played Everquest II.

To quote: I think a lot of our stereotypes are based on the way computer games have been, rather than where they're going.

The pressure to conform to traditional gender roles might mean that some women are put off activities seen as "masculine", whereas women who reject traditional gender roles might be more likely to play MMOs such as EverQuest II.

Perhaps in support of this the survey revealed an unusually high level of bisexuality among the women who took part in the study - over five times higher than the general population.
 

UnAnnounced Classic Sega Games Coming to PSN and XBLA

50°
312w ago - Several unannounced SEGA-made games recently popped up on the Entertainment Software Rating Board's (ESRB) Web site.

Apparently the publisher is using the Wii's Virtual Console as a sort of test bed as the listed titles have already released on Nintendo's System (not to mention the fact that they're also classic games).

Now coming to Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network are Gunstar Heroes, Phantasy Star II, Comix Zone and Sonic The Hedgehog 3.

There's no indication of a release date for any of the titles, but as soon as we get wind of one, we'll let you know.
