Breaking News: Resistance: Fall of Man 2 Details

50°
366w ago - Surfer Girl Reviews Star Wars is at it again, this time with "exclusive" info on the sequel to Insomniac's FPS for the PlayStation 3.

Aside from the first and last level, the game takes place entirely in the United States, where someone who may or may not be Sgt. Nathan Hale (who plays a role in the story) has to deal with the Chimeran invasion of the US in such places as San Francisco and Chicago.

And there is a cliffhanger ending that sets up for a third title. Vehicles will be included in multiplayer this time around, one will be able to take to the sky with three new vehicles or boogie it down on the ground with the three vehicles from the first game's Campaign.

There's even a tentative release date of November 2008. Again, it could all be pure speculation, but if it turns out to be true, you'll thank us. Or Surfer Girl. How about both?
 

Vii meets Wii

366w ago - Just in case you thought this whole Vii thing was one big prank, guess again. Engadget Chinese managed to scrounge up one of these clones and put it toe-to-toe with its idol. Needless to say, Nintendo's unit tends to demand quite a bit more respect, but why not take a look at their gallery and see how the two really stack up.

366w ago - We're currently sunning ourselves out in Seville, Spain at the Pro Evolution Soccer finals and after a triumphant clean sweep of the annual five-a-side journo tournament at the Olympic Stadium (defending team England's crown by winning every game and beating the Germans 1-0 in the final), we managed to sit down with Shingo 'Seabass' Takatsuka, PES's legendary Executive Producer to hear his thoughts on PES 2008 and his vision for the future of the series.

Although this season's version is now complete on PS3 and 360 and should be in your hands fairly shortly (and awesome it is too), Seabass hasn't been content to rest on his laurels and has already begun work on PES 2009, where he promises a 'complete overhaul' of the game in absolutely every respect.

A brand new series of gameplay modes for PES 2009 are apparently already complete and Seabass is also promising that there will be a series of 'crucial' changes to gameplay which will help him fulfil his vision for subsequent next gen versions of the game.

We've put together a big interview piece for you to peruse and fascinating stuff it is too for the hardcore PES afficianado, with Seabass revealing his thoughts on the new PS3 version, how the Online side of the series will develop, what impact the DualShock 3 has had on development and the thorny...

UTD study looks at girls and video games

366w ago - UTD study finds video-game market isn't reaching girls. Girls want to play video games. But boys aren't interested in making the games that girls want to play. Those are the basic findings of a new study by researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas.

The analysts surveyed 43 mothers, along with 57 daughters between the ages of 7 and 20, in California, Colorado, Florida, Michigan, New Jersey, Texas and Utah.

The study, "Serious Games for IM Generation Girls," found that all of the girls and women surveyed had played computer or video games at some point, but only three-quarters were currently into games.

And while it sounds a little stereotypical, the researchers found that girls' "interest in computer games that allowed them immersion into the virtual worlds of horses, weddings, fashion, and cars was very high."

Gears of War, Manhunt 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4, in other words, are not on their shopping lists, but The Sims sure is.

While female-centric games could add another billion dollars in revenue for the industry, the researchers said there are some obstacles:

• "The primary reason for the lack of success in computer games for girls is...
