New Wardevil screenshots for PS3, trailer coming soon

100°
341w ago - According to the developers over at Digi-Guys, the Wardevil: Unleash the Beast Within posters will start to develop some of the style and mood that'll be a part of the game.

For those of you who don't know already, Wardevil is a PS3 exclusive and is set to hit sometime near the end of 2008 or possibly early 2009.

The game will feature an all new game engine called, RTE1080, which allows for 60fps animations and 1080p resolutions. As you may have seen in our last screenshot update, the game also features high resolution textures.

Some details the developers have told PSU:

- They are not finished with the game yet, still adding improvements both gameplay wise and graphically.
- They are making good use of the SPU's and streaming off of the Blu-ray disc
- Their goal is to get the Blu-ray film & game to look as identical as possible...so there is no transition between game/cinematic
 

The Worst Things EA could do to GTA

50°
341w ago - Not long ago gamers everywhere were put into a state of panic when everyone's favorite analyst, Michael Patcher, suggested that if EA were to acquire Take 2 it would be in their best interests to delay GTA IV.

While gamers were able to get through the first delay of GTA IV given the slew of holiday titles to blissfully pass the time with, a delay through the summer draught of gaming would leave a very dry taste of fear in our mouths. Of course since GTA's release is so close a delay is comfortably impossible, as the title has already gone gold, but if EA were to get control of Take 2 and the Grand Theft Auto Franchise, a postponement of the most recent title could only be the short term repercussions.

We've compiled a comprehensive and pessimistic list of the worst things that could happen to our most beloved, and Washington's most hated game franchise. If Patcher's words already have you scared, then you better not read on, as these paranoid machinations may induce nightmares.

EA Trax Replace Radio Stations

One of the best parts about any GTA game has always been the soundtrack, with its great licensed music as well has hilarious original radio stations and on-air personalities. The music of GTA has continually set the tone for the time period in any of the...
 

3.5" 500 GB SATA Hard Drive Housing Project for PS3

100°
341w ago - Milky_Joe has created an interesting looking 3.5" PS3 Hard Disk holder for a school project. The inspiration for the the project was that 3.5" Hard Drives were a lot cheaper than 2.5" equivalents.

To quote: The case itself was constructed from black acrylic sheets (3mm thick for the dimension lovers out there) that were cut to shape with a laser cutter and moulded were necessary (i.e the top and bottom panels).

The pieces were stuck together using a chemical known as diachloromethane (I could give you the atomic structure if you wanted) which dissolves plastics before evaporating to leave whatever it was that was unlucky enough to be touching the plastic at the time well and truly stuck.

I used silver spray paint (I believe it was Ford Moondust to be precise) to spray on the motif and black fabric on the underside to prevent scratching. The HDD is held in place by a 2-piece bracket that sits snuggly within the curved panels of the unit to hold it tightly in place (or at least it would if I had the **bleep** screws).

One cable runs from the data socket on the hard disk to the PS3 and the other provides power from the mains with the help of an adapter.
 

PSW Magazine: GTA IV to get In-Game Music

50°
341w ago - According to PSW magazine, GTA IV is set to get custom music via the in-game mobile phone. It will play any music floating around on your PS3's HDD.

This coupled with Criterion's 'Burnout Paradise' update, shows that a way has been found to get around Microsoft's in game music patent.

How this has been achieved hasn't yet been revealed, but at least its looking up for Sony. Also announced were a few other small features of the game. When in public you can get the cops called on you if you are so much as brandishing a gun in front of them.

Mini-games will include: Bowling, Darts, Drinking games.

You can do multiple missions at once.

Different NPC pedestrians will be harder or easier depending on the type of NPC (e.g. an old lady will be easy to knock down, but mid-age men will be more likely to beat you to a pulp).

The game will feature wall piercing like COD4 with the more powerful weapons. The hospitals wont take your weapons if you choose to pay $100 for the privilege.

Some NPC's will hang on to their car as you steal it. A drink of beer will make you stagger around wildly and the screen will blur.

And finaly NPC characters will speak other languages each other.
