303w ago - Capcom was kind enough to send us a pre-release copy of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition for our PlayStation 3. Surprisingly, just like Devil May Cry 4, Capcom also requires a 5GB installation that can take up to 15-20 minutes.
Only this time, there isn't much to read on-screen, and it's pretty much pointless to sit in front of the TV watching it install so very slowly.
While we are confident that the 5GB installation is worth it, will this be a Capcom requirement for all of their PS3 titles? Perhaps.
303w ago - Sony will be releasing a special update to the PlayStation Store later tonight. A new song for Guitar Hero III has been released and the content is free, but only available for a limited time.
The song is Aerosmith's "Dream On"and the file is 16.1MB.
This update has been made available due to the announcment of the new Guitar Hero game, Guitar Hero III: AeroSmith which is a game similar to Rock the 80's on the PS2.
For all PlayStation 3 owners with Guitar Hero III this download will added to the store at 11:59p.m. PST and will only be available for till February 18th, 2008.
303w ago - Given everything else in Smash Bros Brawl has been revealed on the internet, it's only fitting that a few unintentional quirks are spoiled, too. While you might argue/joke "that's not a bug, it's a feature," we're pretty sure this one is a bug. Here's your spoiler warning -- video (and explanation of the glitch) embedded after the break.
Normally, Jigglypuff's final smash has him turn into a giant puff and push people off the stage, subsequently returning to normal size. Using the collapsed bridge, someone found a way to keep him permanently enlarged. You don't have to sit through the entire video, only the first minute or so is important.
303w ago - Did you hear about that list of canceled games Pearce, Blizzard president Mike Morhaime, and company lead designer Rob Pardo presented at DICE? A list of games they said they started making but never finished? This list, snapped as a photo by Kotaku.
I had some questions for Pearce about it, including why "StarCraft Ghost" wasn't on it. But first, I asked, which of the game on the list came closest to release?
Pearce: "WarCraft Adventures" was the one that came closest to release. But even so, if we had decided to complete "WarCraft Adventures" we would probably would have had 12 months more of work on it, to polish and get it right.
Some of them were only in their infancy when we decided it was not the right thing. And some of them were further along. I know that for "Pax Imperia" there were a number of people and marketing resources that had been put toward picking a box and stuff like that.
Multiplayer: What about "Games People Play"? That didn't sound like a Blizzard game.
Pearce: That's why we didn't end up doing it. The concept was ,like, casual games. Whatever we can put in there. Card games. Public domain casual games. And it didn't fit who we were.... That was a long time ago. That was before the first "Warcraft."
303w ago - Who is your favorite dragon that knows how to burn those sheep into nothing but crispy delight? Spyro without a doubt is the only one capable of being the answer to that very question.
EB Games and GameStop have officially started taking pre-orders for the lovable dragon for its upcoming title, Legend of Spyro: Darkest Hour. They currently have the listed price at $49.99 which happens to be $10 cheaper than usual retail launches. The game is expected to release in October, so you may be able to catch a glimpse of this title at the upcoming Game Developer Conference next week.
The title is supposedly going to be a multi-platform release for the PlayStation 2 and 3 as well as the Nintendo Wii and DS. This apparently leaves the 360 owners out of the fire breathing fun once again.
We'll keep you up to date as more comes out regarding this title in the future.
