1) Metal Gear Solid: Exclusive 3D Cutscenes 3DS Edition

Gamefront News: 3DS vs. Microwave



Eagerly waiting to pick up a 3DS? Or are you tired of the adulation this game system has received?

Then this video of a guy destroying his brand new 3DS will fill you with rage/content.

Don’t try this at home, kids. The safest way to destroy your 3DS is with a hammer.



This guy apparently has microwaved rubble featured in modern art museums. Although I question the artistry, I cannot deny the entertainment factor. Also worthy of note is the fact that his 3DS video is more popular than his video of an iPAD 2 in a microwave. So… Nintendo wins? Sort of?

Gamefront News: Anonymous Targets Sony, Supports GeoHot



In a press release and recently released video, the hacker collective known as Anonymous has stated its intent to target Sony for pursuing legal action against “fellow hacker” George “GeoHot” Hotz.

Best known for its attack on Scientology in 2008, Anonymous engages in international hacktivism to promote internet freedom and freedom of speech.

In keeping with its message that knowledge is free, Anonymous declared to Sony:

You have abused the judicial system in an attempt to censor information about how your products work. You have victimized your own customers merely for possessing and sharing information, and continue to target those who seek this information. In doing so you have violated the privacy of thousands of innocent people who only sought the free distribution of information. [...]

Your corrupt business practices are indicative of a corporate philosophy that would deny consumers the right to use products they have paid for, and rightfully own, in the manner of their choosing.

That’s the message. The threat?

Your official websites will be taken offline, including the playstation store.

If this were to happen, Sony can stand to lose out on business transactions as our world grows more dependent on online sales. So the question is, can Anonymous do this?

Gamefront News: Battlefield 3 Has 12-Hour Campaign



There is a place for campaign modes in online shooters. I never stopped believe that, since I’m not the type of person to play any game online for very long. My record is the three weeks I played Halo 3 online before never playing it again when The Orange Box came out. I don’t stick with one game because I get bored. But I might revisit a game’s campaign from time to time. I’ve even played Black Ops’ twice. I just like stories, and I really don’t like people that much. I’m kinda a shut-in!

People like me are one reason for the campaigns, but we aren’t the only reason. Karl Magnus Troedsson of DICE tells Games.On.Net they’ve got another explanation for including a beefy, 12-hour campaign in Battlefield 3.

A lot of people don’t want to jump straight into multiplayer. They want to feel around a bit and they’re ready to move over to online. The hardcore online people, they don’t care, they’re just straight in.

Gamefront News: Blizzard April Fool’s Roundup

When it comes to April Fool’s tomfoolery, Blizzard never disappoints its fanbase. As has become customary, this industry titan has a prank for each of its three franchises–two for World of Warcraft.

For Diablo 3, Blizzard has announced a new Horadric Cube app for your smartphones. Transmute your apps into new, more powerful ones, by mix-and-matching different combinations in a throwback to the good old Diablo 2 days.

Just be sure to read the fine print disclaimer:

Blizzard Entertainment shall not be held responsible for any damages resulting from improper use of the Horadric Cube application (“the app”) including, but not limited to, headaches, sleeplessness, rashes, hauntings, curses, dismemberment, disembowelment, evisceration, conflagration, immolation, insanity, demonic possession, or athlete’s foot, nor shall Blizzard Entertainment be held responsible for any loss of souls or property damage caused by monsters, the undead, demons, or any other type of Lesser or Prime Evil. Contact Blizzard Entertainment support in case of unholy auras, ghostly visitations, or other paranormal phenomena.

The last time Blizzard released a game on console was over ten years ago: StarCraft for the Nintendo 64. Though I shudder at the travesty that release was, news of their latest foray into the console market looks more promising:

Gamefront News: Burnout Crash Revealed by Australian Ratings Board



We haven’t heard much from Burnout Paradise developer Criterion Games in a while, but it looks like that could change soon. According to the Australian games rating board, a new game called Burnout Crash is in the works.

Furthermore, the folks over at Siliconera have found that a Criterion developer has listed the game on his LinkedIn profile, listing it as coming for the PlayStation 3 and XBox 360.

Obviously, this is all speculation until we hear something official from Criterion. Still, if the game is getting rated already, odds are that it will be coming along fairly soon. Perhaps we’ll get a chance to see it at E3 this year. Once we hear more, so will you.

Gamefront News: Enhancements Coming to Earthrise MMO



If you read our three-part review of Earthrise, you know that Earthrise has potential, but upon release, lacked certain features to really make it shine.

Gamefront News: Gmail Goes Kinect for April Fools’ Day



Google usually does a pretty good April Fools’ joke; they aren’t actually trying to trick anyone, and so it’s OK with me that they do it as long as it’s actually good comedy. And this year’s definitely is, and it pokes fun at Kinect. The joke is a new product called Gmail Motion:

The mouse and keyboard were invented before the Internet even existed. Since then, countless technological advancements have allowed for much more efficient human computer interaction. Why then do we continue to use outdated technology? Introducing Gmail Motion — now you can control Gmail with your body.

Of course, the joke wouldn’t be complete without a video demonstration. Enjoy:

Gamefront News: Major Layoffs at Sony Online Entertainment



George Broussard recently tweeted that Sony Online Entertainment Seattle will be seeing layoffs and that studio closure is a possibility. However, Broussard is best known for his 12+ year development of Duke Nukem Forever, so you’ll forgive me if I remain skeptical.

Thankfully, Kotaku has learned through an undisclosed source that closures will affect SOE’s studios in Seattle, Tucson, and Denver. Allegedly, half of the workforce at SOE offices in Austin, Texas has been laid off, as well as a significant portion of employees in San Diego. This amounts to nearly one-third of SOE’s staff being canned in one fell swoop. On top of all this, SOE has cancelled its spy MMOS The Agency in order to free up the survivors to keep everything else going.

Gamefront News: Nintendo 3DS Sales Numbers Update for April 1



Back in January, Nintendo said they’d be shipping 4 million 3DS units to stores before the end of March, with 1.5 million going to Japan and 2.5 million going everywhere else. The [stated] implication there is that they expected to sell all those pretty quickly in order to create a fevered demand for the device through consumers panicked about not being able to find them in stores.

It hasn’t worked out that way so far, but it’d be incorrect to say sales numbers have been anything but excellent. Since launch on February 26 in Japan, just under 800,000 units have been sold, with half those sales coming on launch day. While the launch was excellent, with the initial shipment all being purchased quickly, sales haven’t been holding up. For the week ending March 27, the 3DS sold about 50,700 units in Japan, or about 300 fewer than the PSP sold that same week. Nintendo can’t be terribly happy about that.

Meanwhile, the 3DS launched in Europe last Friday, March 25, Over the weekend it sold 303k over all European territories and 113k in the UK alone. That UK number is short of the 185k the PSP sold in the UK on launch day in 2005, but higher than the 87,000 Nintendo DSi moved on its release.

Gamefront News: OpenFeint Paying iOS Devs to Port to Android



It’s a good time to be an Android device gamer.

OpenFeint, an online gaming network that supplies things like Achievements, friends lists and leaderboards, is working to bring more titles to Google’s mobile operating system, which includes phones like Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play. The service has already added 215 new Android games to its service in the last six months, and it’s poised to get a whole lot more.

Android can sometimes have trouble drawing game developers away from making their games for Apple’s iOS platform, but that’s been changing recently as Google rolls out improvements to the Android ecosystem, like in-app purchasing.

And OpenFeint has been doing its part, too, attempting to build up the Android games market by encouraging iOS developers to port their games to Google’s operating system. In a partnership with The9, OpenFeint created a $100 million fund to help in bringing more games to the platform.

Gamefront News: Rayman 3D (3DS) Review



Today, Ubisoft’s Rayman series is more noteworthy for having launched the Raving Rabbids series than for the titular main character. And that’s a shame because the whimsical, brilliant Rayman 2: The Great Escape was one of the greatest platformers ever. In my opinion, no subsequent Rayman game has come close to matching it for quality and fun, which is why I was pleased to confirm that what I’d read was entirely true: Rayman 3D is Rayman 2.

In its day, Rayman 2 was considered a major step forward in 3D games; inventive levels, fun puzzles and graphics that despite still aren’t embarrassing. That’s why it’s been ported to every single system since. You probably already know the plot – rescue the Glade of Dreams from an army of evil robots. No point in recapping a story that was spoiled 12 years ago. Most ports have felt perfunctory (I still prefer the Dreamcast version for this reason), but in true 3D everything old feels new again. Graphics haven’t been changed on an aesthetic level, so you’re going to notice how geometric everything is compared to the creeping realism we’re used to now. But their cartoonish charm is amplified by 3D; more importantly, so too is the gameplay itself.

It takes only a moment to confirm that the gameplay, save system and so forth are essentially identical. So we’ll focus on what matters: the conversion to 3D. It’s total, and excellent. The visuals are only eyepopping in the third dimensional sense, but that’s fine because whether in the opening cut scenes, when floating pirate ships head toward a vanishing point that looks real, or in gameplay when you float down into a deep ravine, they have a kind of quaint epicness. Better still, at every moment that it counts, Rayman proves the 3DS capable of delivering something more than just a gimmick.

Gamefront News: Report: New Xbox 360 Disc Format Has 1gb More Space, Altered Security



Yesterday, I wrote this about the Xbox 360′s “updated disc format”: “I would guess the new format will either be an anti-piracy measure or something higher capacity than the dual-layer DVDs they use now.” Both possibilities were right!

Currently, a standard Xbox 360 DVD has 6.8gb of usable space out of a possible 7.9gb or so, with the last bit of space partitioned for security and video stuff. According to a Eurogamer Digital Foundry source at Microsoft, the new “format” will repurpose that extra space, allowing developers to use most or all of it. Presumably, the copy of Halo: Reach that will be distributed to folks in the format beta will be altered to make use of that space.

So there’s your higher capacity. The repurposing of that extra space implies new anti-piracy and security measures, but I’m not just working on implications. Hackman commodore4eva says this about security on the new format: MS will introduce xgd3 – this will add more ap checks, cvi (content integerity) checks, increase the disc size and adds a new layer for protection issues – all in the 20500 sdk! bring it on!

Gamefront News: Ridge Racer 3D (3DS) Review



Of the six 3DS games I’ve played in the past few days, only one of them really grabbed me from the start. That game is Ridge Racer 3D. The opening cinematic looks fantastic on the 3D screen, and I was ready. I hadn’t played a Ridge Racer game in years, but I was excited. That excitement was validated once I actually started racing; this was a game that actually felt enhanced by the 3D, because it’s one thing to play an absurdly fast-paced racing game on a portable, and it’s another thing entirely to play a fast-paced racing game on a portable IN 3D. (I haven’t played Asphalt 3D, to be fair.)

Ridge Racer 3D is an all-around excellent experience, and so much of it is due to the 3D. Ridge Racer was always a pretty fun franchise — albeit on that doesn’t stand out in the age of Burnout — but the 3D really does take it to another level. With everything moving so quickly while you grind the hell out of some corners while confetti flies out of the screen, you’d think it would be a nauseating experience, but it totally isn’t. And it’s an arcade experience through and through, being all about speed and not at all about real-world physics, and so the learning curve is pretty much nonexistent. It’s just a lot of fun.

In bite-sized pieces, at least. The full Ridge Racer 3D experience is a limited one. There are just a handful of locations, and while there are a hell of a lot of races taking place on those locations, most of them make use of slight variations on a few courses. That means that during the campaign — the Grand Prix — you might do a hundred races, but you’ll only end up seeing about four tracks over and over again.

Gamefront News: Rift Review



The world is under constant assault. At any moment, creatures from another plane could tear the very air asunder and pour through to assault you. In addition, you’re locked in a battle with former allies over whose plan to save the world is the best. This is the world of Telara. This is the world of Rift.

Rift is the first game from Trion Worlds, a fairly new developer made up of veterans of other MMO studios such as Sony Online Entertainment and NCSoft. It focuses on the world of Telara, and the planar creatures that are attempting to destroy it.

First off, we should get one thing straight: Rift is not breaking new ground in the MMO genre. Rather it’s amalgamated a number of ideas that have been used before, and added a fresh twist to a few of them. Chief among these twists is the concept of rifts.



Rifts are basically public quests that a number of players can spontaneously group together and complete. Unlike public quests in other games, Rifts can pop up in random spots, or be spawned as part of a planar invasion. Either way, they’re quick chunks of content that can be devoured in as little as few minutes, or in the case of planar invasions, up to a half-hour or so.

Gamefront News: Spider-Man: Edge of Time Preview



Peter Parker is going to die. That’s the central conflict at the heart of Spider-Man: Edge of Time, the recently announced non-sequel to 2010′s Shattered Dimensions from developer Beenox. He’s going to die, and the only way he can survive is to accept the help of Spider-Man 2099 (Miguel O’Hara), a superhero from the future determined to correct a timeline gone wrong.

Peter David, Spider-Man 2099 creator and writer, is penning the story, a complicated time travel tale centered around the two Spideys. The Amazing Spider-Man (Josh Keaton, who voiced “Ultimate” in Shattered Dimensions–Neal Patrick Harris is not returning), and Spider-Man 2099 (Christopher Daniel Barnes, “Noir” in Shattered Dimensions), will need to work out their differences to save Parker’s life and crush the villain.

I recently had a chance to see a pre-alpha demo build of Spider-Man: Edge of Time in action, along with some Q&A with Producer Kevin Umbricht and Creative Director Gerard Lehiany. There’s a lot we still don’t know (for instance, who the villain is, exactly), but it was an informative demo that showed off the first level in the game. Below is everything we know about the game so far.

Gamefront News: Super Street Fighter 4 3D Edition (3DS) Review



Gamefront’s Phil Owen said it best – ‘The 3DS is pretty damn powerful, so Capcom was able to make a this version pretty close to what’s on consoles.’ There’s almost nothing I can add to that. It is, in almost every way that counts, the console version of Street Fighter IV. With some awesome extras courtesy of StreetPass and your 3DS wireless connection.

First, Graphics: They look great, though somewhat redundant, which isn’t exactly a problem. Even on the console version, Street Fighter IV remains a side-view, strictly left right fighter that might be better classified as 2.5D instead of 3D. This is very much the case with the 3DS version, but better. We obviously can’t demonstrate due to your monitor not being capable of 3D, but rest assured when you’ve fully enabled 3D the backgrounds, depth of your characters and explosive special moves sufficiently pop out at you all three dimensional and stuff. Street Fighter IV also makes sufficient use of that 800×240 resolution screen so that it doesn’t just look 3D, it looks great.

Controls are what you expect – 3DS has 4 buttons, 2 triggers, a d-pad and l-pad, making it functionally only slightly less than standard console controller. Since you don’t need the r-stick in a game with a fixed camera, the game handles nearly identically to its console equivalent. Of course, it’s smaller area on which to put your hands, so bigger people might get cramped up trying to pull off the myriad button combinations necessary for special moves. The real draw, however, is the ability to go toe-to-toe against other 3DS owners. I had the good fortune of randomly coming across another owner who happened to be on the same bus as myself, happened to have Street pass enabled, and had their copy of Street Fighter IV with them. If this happens, all you have to do is select arcade mode and similar to being signed into XBLA or PSN, anyone can join your game at any time. Awesome.

Flight Simulator X: Platinum Airways travels to Thin Air
Platinum Airways, the very Open Skies virtual airline, is sending its pilot to high altitude airports, as its next Destination of the Week special series, “Thin Air”, will feature the highest commercial airports with a scheduled service in five continents – Asia, South America, North America, Africa and Europe.

The Thin Air series will take Platinum Airways’ pilots back to familiar terrain. Previous DOTW series included the Conquest of the Snowy Mountains and Flying the Fjords. The criteria for Thin Air were simple: each continent’s highest elevation commercial airport with a scheduled service, accessible through FS9 or FSX with default or freeware scenery. This ruled out airports that only offered chartered or private flights. The highest airport that met all criteria is Qamdo Bangda Airport (ZUBD) in the Himalaya’s in Tibet, at 4,334 m or 14,219 ft. South America’s representative is El Alto (SLLP) in La Paz, Bolivia, at 4,062 m or 13,325 feet. North America’s highest is Telluride Regional Airport (KTEX) in Telluride, CO, at 9,078 feet or 2,767 m. The Ethiopian highlands deliver Africa’s representative, with and Bole International (HAAB) in Addis Ababa (HAAB) at 2,334 m or 7,656 ft. Finally, Europe’s highest commercial airport will be a challenging déjà vu experience, as Innsbruck Kranebitten Airport (LOWI), with an altitude of 581 m or 1,906 ft, was part of the Snowy Mountains series earlier this year. Thin Air will undoubtedly generate numerous breathtaking camera shots that will draw high scores in Platinum Airways’ monthly picture of the month competition, with the winning picture of a PT Airways aircraft in flight making it to the home page for a month.

Launched in June 2010, Platinum Airways is not a typical virtual airline. It combines an Open Skies policy, allowing members to fly any mission of their choice with the aircraft of their choice at the time of their choice, with a strategic hub network consisting of Newark (KEWR), Dallas-Fort Worth (KDFW), Vancouver (CYVR), Perth (YPPH) and Brussels (EBBR). Platinum Airways aims to be low on rules and high in content.

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas: Modders Recreate Vice City With GTA4 Engine


Two mod teams have been concurrently working on recreating Grand Theft Auto: Vice City using Grand Theft Auto IV’s engine. Although there is generally a sense of fellowship among modders, one can’t help but wonder if some rivalry exists between these two teams. Who will finish their mod first? Which will be more polished? It’s the Space Race all over again. Just… less historically important.

Both teams have presented videos of their works-in-progress.

The Vice City RAGE team offers this short video that shows off their recreation of Vice City in the GTA4 engine, complete with the original textures:



The Vice IV team presents this NSFW 18-minute video, showcasing cutscenes and gameplay (gameplay starts about 9 minutes in). Many assets are absent, resulting in some humorous floating characters, but it’s a solid proof-of-concept.
