BBC iPlayer Now Working with the PlayStation 3 Console

100°
304w ago - BBC staff member Jon (iPlayer Host) has stated on their forums (linked above) that they have fixed issues people were having using the BBC iPlayer on the PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: Kalel2008: As soon as I read on the Web site that you can play videos from the iplayer on the PS3, I was so excited untill I found that it was not true.

dosyman: You can, but it's an unofficial site. www.ps3iplayer.com

Steve9719: There's an even more official way to get the iPlayer working on the PS3. Simply visit the Wii version of the site: www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/bigscreen/

Jon (iPlayer Host): We're putting in a fix soon that should make everything better (for the PS3 at least). Update: We've put the fix in and it should now work correctly.
 

Is Square-Enix Still the JRPG King?

305w ago - Homicide from Neocrisis (linked above) writes: I'm pretty sure most of you know Square-Enix (formerly Squaresoft and Enix, two different companies).

They are one of the most successful and well known companies today mostly for their JRPGs like Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest. On a Sunday morning, I somehow stumbled onto the Square-Enix's Wikipedia page.

I saw their earlier titles such as Secret of Mana, Chrono and Super Mario RPG. They all brought a smile to my face as I can remember the days when I was a kid and enjoyed them.

Then their latest games were shown and the smile went away. Square went from being one of the best JRPG makers out there to just another RPG maker.

Is Square still the JRPG king we all know or have they lost it?
 

15-Year-Old Suffers Epileptic Seizure from Lich King Marathon

50°
306w ago - A 15 year-old Swedish boy may have had the drive to follow in his fellow European gamers' footsteps of reaching level 80 in World of Warcraft in one 27 hour marathon session, but his body wasn't nearly so keen on the idea.

According to a Times report, after playing Wrath of the Lich King for 24 hours straight, he "suffered what appeared to be an epileptic seizure."

Doctors would later reveal the boy's body systems "had been disrupted by a combination of sleep deprivation, lack of food, and the prolonged period of concentration playing the game."

Understandably, the boy's father plans to place limits on the amount of time his son can play videogames after he makes a full recovery.

Let's make something clear; marathon gaming sessions aren't fundamentally bad since they have the potential to facilitate positive social interaction. But when Ho Hos and gumdrops become substitutes for spaghetti and meatballs and people start having seizures, it might be time to put that hot pocket down and reassess the situation.
 

Rumor: Blue Castle Making Dead Rising 2 for XBox 360

100°
308w ago - A source close to Canadian developer Blue Castle Games has told Eurogamer that the studio is making a sequel to Dead Rising.

Rumors that the Vancouver-based outfit was working on the zombie project first emerged last year, but neither the developer nor publisher Capcom has confirmed anything on the record.

But while Eurogamer was on a secret mission in Vancouver last week, we were told by a source familiar with the project that Capcom has indeed farmed out development to the Western team.

The source said: "Everyone's really excited; the team has obviously seen the rumors and it's been hard to keep quiet, but they can't wait to show off the game."

Unfortunately, they wouldn't give us any details on the title or when we're likely to see it. Boo.

Blue Castle has so far released two baseball titles with 2K Games, including The Bigs, and announced MLB Front Office Manager earlier this month.

The company describes itself on its website as "a full-service, multi-project and multi-platform 3rd party developer located in Vancouver, Canada", where: "We are well underway on three new projects - an unannounced Action title and two Sports titles one of which was just announced."

Our source confirmed that the action title is a sequel to the deliciously...
 

A Kingdom for Keflings to Launch with Playable Avatars and NXE

308w ago - NinjaBee announced today that A Kingdom for Keflings will be the first XBox 360 title to ship with playable, in-game Avatars.

Press Release: A Kingdom for Keflings, the First Xbox 360 Game to Launch with Playable Avatars, Arrives on Nov. 19 with the New Xbox Experience

Giants in video games? Nothing new. But playing with your own doppelganger as the giant? That is something you can only do on Xbox LIVE Arcade.

From NinjaBee, the developer that brought fan favorites "Band of Bugs," "Outpost Kaloki X" and "Cloning Clyde," comes "A Kingdom for Keflings," a new twist to the city-building game genre where you play as a giant working to turn a village of Keflings into a metropolis.

The Xbox LIVE Arcade game, launching on Nov. 19 with the New Xbox Experience, is the first Xbox 360 title to ship with playable, in-game Avatars. "A Kingdom for Keflings" also comes packed with custom animations tailored for Avatars and player-controlled social emotes. The game supports 4-player Xbox LIVE multiplayer with each friend using a custom Avatar, and works perfectly with Xbox LIVE Party.

But Avatar inclusion is just half the fun. In this innovative, Medieval-era city-builder, giants start out with a small village and a handful (literally!) of helpful Keflings...
