159w ago - Marvel Studios Manager Chris Baker of Licensed Games has shared a video today introducing Marvel Pinball, which is coming soon to fans via PlayStation Network.
To quote: While ZEN Pinball demonstrates Zen Studios' immeasurable passion for making awesome pinball tables, Marvel Pinball enhances things with an equal passion for Marvel and its characters. These guys really get it.
Let's take a look at each table in the initial set, shall we? (Yes, I said "initial" - Marvel Pinball will regularly expand upon with new tables. More on that at the end.)
The Invincible Iron Man
With a couple of hit movies in the recent past, some might argue that Iron Man is the most popular hero at Marvel these days. (Who'da thunk that three years ago?...) As with all tables, Zen gives us a comics-based take on Tony Stark's heroics, including showdowns with the Mandarin, Whiplash (who at times actually destroys your ball if it crosses his path) and - if you're a real pinball wizard - Ultimo. And the table doesn't just stick to the "Iron Man" part of Tony's life - you'll...

160w ago - Recently some COD Black Ops videos surfaced showing off a 15th Prestige XP and Infinite Care Package hack, and as a result Treyarch COD: Black Ops designer David 'Vahn' Vonderhaar has issued a statement warning PS3 glitchers.
To quote: "This is going to be my one and only statement on this topic, so pay attention.
I got Twitbombed today from dozens of people the same 2 links. Some are people using old dashboards or old versions of the game. Others are claiming victory on old dev builds that don't even connect to the version of Xbox Live that you use. Others are reproducible issues that we will hotfix or patch just like we said we would. In essence, we likely know more about it than you do from watching a video on Vimeo or YouTube.
What many of these people want is to be Internet nerd famous. I'm not going to make them famous and you shouldn't either. Internet hysteria from normal people is exactly what they want and that's how many people reacted today. You gave them exactly what they want.
Given the opportunity, I'd personally wield the ban hammer for anyone...
