e3 2010

  • If Nintendo ‘won’ E3 then where does that leave Apple?

    There were two big pieces of news at E3 last week: the ceaseless march toward 3D gaming and the unrelenting encroachment of motion control upon our lives. I honestly couldn’t give a toss about 3D gaming because if I wanted 3D entertainment I’d talk to a human being. Same thing with motion control: it doesn’t bother me because I want nothing to do with it (outside of dancing… Read More

  • OnLive now running on Macs

    Get thee to the downloadery for OnLive now works on Macs. You can download a small file to bring up the OnLive client and play Assassisn’s Creed and other exciting games. As you recall, OnLive is essentially a game streaming engine for Macs and PCs. All of the heavy lifting happens in the cloud and the company simply streams audio and video to your desktop. Think of it as video-on-demand… Read More

  • Shock result means Dr. Wagner, Jr. will be on the cover of AAA: Héroes del Ring

    Dr. Wagner, Jr. will be on the cover of AAA: Héroes del Ring. I know this because I saw him win a lucha libre match on the E3 show floor a few hours ago. Read More

  • Video: Pro-wrestling legend Dusty Rhodes loves WWE All Stars

    This was truly a life-changing moment. Pro-wrestling legend Dusty Rhodes was at THQ’s E3 booth today promoting the upcoming release of WWE All Stars and WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2011. And wouldn’t you know it, he told me to beat it! Yes~! Read More

  • Here are your Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword movements

    The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword might be the Wii’s crowning achievement, magnum opus and the single best reason to buy the system. It’s going to be huge. Nintendo had a series of posters hung behind its E3 booth that will help you start practicing for the game right now. Click through for what we can only assume are the 11 major control movements for the upcoming Zelda title. Read More

  • Forcetek's Xio arm-mounted controller is… promising?

    What can one say about a controller that fits onto your arm like a brace and uses the position of your elbow and wrist to control games? Well, it’s kind of awesome: more hardware during a decidedly minimalist gaming trend. But it’s also extremely limited and potentially very expensive. As I noted when they announced it, it’s based on technology used for physical therapy… Read More

  • Must see video: Nicholas Deleon playing Kinect's Dance Central

    This might be the best video you’ll see of E3 2010. It doesn’t get much better than Nicholas dancing. Trust me. Read More

  • Civ V gameplay video is making me excited

    You seriously do not want to Chatroulette with me right now. It would be ugly. Regardless, this new video about Civ V is amazing exciting to a Civ nerd like me. Please let it appear on Mac Steam. Please. Read More

    Matt had a blast playing this; I wish I’d given it a go before we left Sony’s little press island. Think Wii Sports Resort but with the precision and responsiveness that are lacking from the Wii even with MotionPlus. Read More

  • Hands-on: Razer's StarCraft II-themed mouse, keyboard, and headset


    For the last six months or so, whenever I was on Razer’s site for whatever reason, I always would check the StarCraft II section for updates. There were silhouettes there for ages, teasing Blizzard-branded peripherals, yet aside from the messenger bag we gave away, we saw no more of said peripherals than we saw of the dark side of the moon. But E3 this year was the launch date, and I… Read More

  • Trying out SOCOM with the Playstation Move

    Just a quick video to show you that yes indeed, you can play SOCOM with the Move. Quite well if I do say so myself — at least, once I got the hang of it. It’s a lot like playing a Wii FPS, but you can actually rely on… Read More

  • Sony PlayStation Move Charging Station: $29, charges two Move controllers simultaneously

    Buried in the depth’s of Sony’s online archives were these photos of the PlayStation Move Charging Station, a device we don’t remember seeing at the big E3 booth. Or maybe we’re blind. In any event: the Charging Station, as the name implies, charges your Move controllers. Up to two at a time, too. Read More

  • The Playstation Move is a Wii clone – but it's awesome

    The Playstation Move is just what it looks like: a Wii clone. It feels the same, looks the same, and works the same. That’s a good thing, though. Everyone and their grandmother has played Wii bowling and knows how it works. Sony isn’t reinventing motion control with the Move. They are, however, seriously improving it. Read More

  • Sony's Playstation-branded sound bar is exactly what it sounds like

    When they told me there was a new PS3 surround sound bar, I didn’t expect much in the way of originality. And I didn’t get much. But it does look like a nice little audio solution for a small apartment or room where you don’t need cables running all over. It’s a little more than two feet wide and about three inches tall and deep. What were you expecting? it’s a bar. Read More

  • Zapper attachment for Playstation Move makes your light-gun dreams come true

    This little guy, not announced at any big press conference but there for all to see at Sony’s media island, looks like a must-have accessory. If you’re planning on playing Time Crisis or any of the many shooters that are sure to come out for the Move, that is. Otherwise it doesn’t make much sense. But I love the styling: pleasantly retro yet functional and compact. Update… Read More

  • E3 2010: Hands-on with the surprisingly good AAA: Héroes del Ring

    Rather than use E3 to pile on the mountains and mountains of hype of the big-bidget titles, I’ve elected to sprinkle through our coverage the small little gems that might otherwise go unnoticed. First on the docket is AAA: Héores del Ring a lucha libre (Mexican-style higly-flying pro-wrestling) game that’ll hit your Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, and PSP on August 10 of this year. I had… Read More

  • Hands-on with Nox Audio's new lightweight gaming headsets

    I love me some surround sound headsets and big ol’ open-cup designs for when I’m at home, because nobody can see how dorky I look there, and I don’t have to worry about the cables getting everywhere. But for traveling around, putting in a quick game at a cafe, or playing your DS on the bus, you definitely want a more compact pair of cans. The Specialist and the Scout… Read More

  • Make them sell these TRON-themed controllers or I'll hold my breath until I die


    Now, I don’t want to pretend I’m the biggest TRON fan ever. I know that guy, and I’m not jealous. But even if I’d never heard of TRON or TR2N, I’d be leaving dirty finger-marks all over these display-cases just like everybody else. Because these are some sexy-ass controllers. Read More
