Resistance 2 Visual Overload

365w ago - Resistance 2, announced only a couple weeks ago, looks to be improving upon the original in every way possible. With 60-player multiplayer and 8-man co-op, it's not hard to see why. With the team from Insomniac looking to release this game in the Fall, it is set to go head-to-head with Guerrilla Games' 800-pound guerrilla Killzone 2.

Will it be able to take this beast down? We'll let you decide, but for now, Insomniac has released some screenshots of the new entry to their overwhelmingly popular series. Click the link above to find more, and stay tuned to PS3News for more coverage on Resistance 2.

Batmobile Case Mod Looks Nice, Fast

366w ago - Batfan06, a modder, went and made a computer case out of a 1/6 scale Tumbler Batmobile RC car. It looks good. Real good. Nice and well lit. I like lights.

The dude obviously has mad skills and I give him props for such a wicked looking case. It's certainly a hell of a lot better than my case mod. Which is just a plain beige computer case I covered with Hello Kitty stickers.

"Holy casemod, Batman".
"Damnit Robin, I told you to stop saying dumb crap like that."
"I'm sorry Batman, I thought you liked it."
"Well I never have. Now put your leotard back on and get the hell out of here."
"Holy sleeping on the couch, Batman."
"Damnit Robin!"

Future UMD movies are region free?

366w ago - Have to commend Sony for openly embracing import gamers. The PSP and the PlayStation 3 are region free for games, but not for movies.

The latter is understandable considering movie studios are stuck with draconian product control that has a thankfully easy work around in the form of a region free DVD player. UMDs are a different story because they are region encoded and there isn't a simple fix if you are using official PSP firmware.

However, the new MTV releases indicate a change of pace. All of them have an "all" region label instead of a number indicating the region next to them. Perhaps, this is only for MTV UMDs or this is some kind of packing oversight.

I hope neither of these are the case and Sony plans to make the video format completely region free, especially if anime studios start selling entire series as cheap as the UMD Aeon Flux collection.

Mercenaries 2: World of Flames release date announcement coming next week?

366w ago - Mercenaries 2: World of Flames release date announcement coming next week?

We reported yesterday that Electronic Arts could be planning to release Mercenaries 2: World of Flames on 25th August 2008 if Two online retailer listings from Amazon and Gamestop proved to be correct.

EA has confirmed to us that these dates are incorrect: "We don't actually have any confirmed dates for Mercs 2 at the moment, either internally or externally, so I think these retailers may be jumping the gun a little. We should have more details after our global marketing meeting next week."

EA could announce a release date for Mercenaries 2: World of Flames sometime next week. We'll let you know if we hear anything.

Epic, Silicon Knights Clash Over Access To Engine Code

366w ago - Epic and licensee Silicon Knights (Too Human) have continued their engine-related court battle, with controversy over Epic being permitted to examine Silicon Knights' codebase, and Silicon Knights revealing it originally paid $750,000 to license Unreal Engine 3.

Epic Protection

The latest battle began with a Silicon Knights protective order that sought to ensure Epic would not be allowed to view Too Human source code to judge how much, if any, Unreal Engine 3 code remained.

"Epic has not demonstrated any reason," the document states, "why the more common method of analysis of proprietary information - the use of outside experts - will not be sufficient in this action."

Claiming that Epic has demonstrated no cost savings or other benefits by reviewing the documents in-house, saying "it is beyond dispute that both sides will retain such outside experts, and that those experts will need to independently make their own review of the "HC" material in question in order to render their respective opinions."

"Permitting such unnecessary in-house review only leads to a heightened opportunity for misuse of that information," said Silicon Knights.

Illustrating the point, the Canadian developer notes that the camera system it currently is employing in Too Human...
