  • Live: 2K briefing

    This isn’t a press conference, but I’m hearing about a whole new slew of games from 2K. I missed the beginning of the Bioshock demo, but it looks like there will be DLC very soon. Challenge rooms are the hot new item where you can solve a series of puzzles to unlock trophies. The demo I saw required the player to help a little sister get off of a ferris wheel using… Read More

  • Nintendo's Wii MotionPlus enhances Wiimote sensitivity

    Nintendo’s going to be demoing this tomorrow, but it’s worth mentioning today. The MotionPlus accessory attaches to the port on your WiiMote and “allows for more comprehensive tracking of a player’s arm position and orientation.” Sounds good to me; I’m guessing it’s basically another set of accelerometers and such that work in concert with the… Read More

  • Contest: Doom at 10,000 feet

    I just flew into Los Angeles last night, and boy are my thumbs tired. That’s not a joke. They actually are, because I beat Doom while in midair. Well, Knee Deep in the Dead, anyway. In case you didn’t know, Virgin America’s in-flight entertainment system, “Red,” includes the shareware version of the iconic shooter in addition to all the usual fixins. Bafflingly… Read More

  • New Wolfenstein to breach the surface at E3?

    The grand-daddy of FPSes (if you don’t count The Eidolon) is coming back for another round and may show its face next week. I’m super pumped about this; Return to Castle Wolfenstein was an awesome game, and Enemy Territory is up there with Tribes as one of my favorite multiplayer games of all time. And buddy, I was good at it, too. Anyway, Raven Software, responsible for the… Read More

    High res available here. This purported ad sent in by a Radio Shack employee to Joystiq backs up the last week’s ad from K-Mart that Microsoft will give the Xbox 360 a price cut during E3. Hold off a few weeks if you’re in the market, kiddies. Read More

  • Screenshots of 360 Unreal Tournament III

    This was undoubtedly the first and only shooter that I was ever good at. Many hours were lost spent in college refining my fragging and camping abilities. I’ll definitely be picking this up for 360 when it hits shelves this summer. I’m also assuming Midway will have this for me to play at E3 next month. Joygasm. The five exclusive maps, split-screen and two new characters are just… Read More
