Video: Helghast in HD - Killzone 2 for PlayStation 3 Ads Hit TV

305w ago - VP of Product Marketing Scott Steinberg has announced that Killzone 2 ads are making their way to both TV and PSN later today as follows:

I am confident this game will inspire many of you who've been waiting for the right time to buy a PS3. It is a true testament to what "Only on PlayStation" means.

We're excited the promise of Killzone 2 has been realized and has exceeded expectations due to the tireless efforts and dedication of [Register or Login to view links]. I can't thank the development team enough for remaining true to the vision and producing one of the most impressive games in recent memory - on any platform. The pre-order numbers only reinforce your great enthusiasm for the game and we're pleased the game reviews show the same.

A group of us flew out to meet with the development team in late 2008 for a product meeting - we had an idea for a fresh way to promote the game. It was to bring the incredible detail in Killzone 2 to life by showcasing the game's technology - only made possible by the power of the PS3.

The idea for the commercial centered on telling the story of war on Helghan - up close and very personal and to use the game's engine to show it. No voodoo,...

BFG is Preparing a Passive 9800 GT PC Video Card

306w ago - Here is an interesting listing of BFG 9800 GT card... It would be quite normal if the card isn't passively cooled. As far as we know, this is the only card from BFG that has a passive heatsink, at least in last few graphics card generations.

The new card is simply dubbed BFG Geforce 9800GT 512MB GDDR3 and it works at reference 600MHz for the core, has 112 stream processors with a shader clock set at 1,500MHz.

As you could tell from the name of this card, it has 512MB of GDDR3 memory which is clocked at 1,800MHz.

While the memory isn't cooled, the GPU has a small block that is connected to a large heatsink located on the back of the card via four heatpipes.

The rest of the card is pretty much plain as it uses green PCB based on Nvidia's reference design. The card isn't listed at BFG's site, but we guess it would be launched soon.

So if you are shopping for a passive cooled 9800 GT card, you can find BFG's 9800 GT listed at [Register or Login to view links] for US $159.99. or [Register or Login to view links] for US $158.98.

Video: Go Inside the Street Fighter IV Launch for PS3!

306w ago - Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein shared a video today via PS Blog of the Street Fighter IV launch for Sony's PlayStation 3 console. To quote:

To celebrate the 2nd (or 3rd, or 4th) coming of the Street Fighter legacy, Capcom threw a giant launch party a few days ago in downtown Los Angeles. Many of you attended, some were [Register or Login to view links] by the LA fire marshal, but all that made it in had a great time.

When I first arrived, Capcom Community Guy and Street Fighter Legend Seth Killian offered up a tour. I rolled video so you could see what went down inside:

Gushing fanboy time: my personal highlights were getting my phone engraved, meeting Cmdr. Geordi La Forge, and getting my butt handed to me by Destructoid's Nick Chester 3 matches in a row.

Again, it was great meeting those who got in, and I extend my personal apologies for those invitees turned away due to overcapacity.

The Top Nine Greatest Video Game Heroines

306w ago - From the day when video games developed the graphic capabilities to simulate cleavage, women in games have been designed mostly from the blueprints of a horny 13-year-old boy's fantasy.

If a female character wasn't in need of rescue - yes, we're talking about you, Donkey Kong - she seemed designed specifically to reinforce negative body images.

But there have been a handful of female video game characters that Brandi Chastain would be proud of, with more seeming to appear in recent years. Below are our picks for the nine greatest video game heroines of all time.

Each was chosen by The Chronicle's video game critics, with the list arranged in descending order of awesomeness, and the name of the nominating critic in parenthesis. Only playable characters are included, and they were judged on toughness and coolness, with no swimsuit or evening gown competition. (This isn't the Maxim magazine list of the nine hottest chicks of gaming.)

We considered adding Ms. Pac Man or Thyra the Valkyrie from the arcade classic Gauntlet, but decided to focus on more modern games. Consider both of those older characters the recipients of a lifetime achievement award.

Lara Croft (Tomb Raider, first appearance 1996): We considered leaving Croft off the list altogether because of...
