PSN Pass Begins With Resistance 3

July 6, 2011 by

PSN Pass

An image recently surfaced showing the box details for the Resistance 3 bundle and the mark of a mysterious PSN Pass feature. Today, it was confirmed in a statement from Sony that the feature is indeed real and coming soon starting with Insomniac’s latest installment in the Resistance franchise.

The pass is being compared all over to EA’s pass system from last year where a one-time code is used to access a game’s online features. The concept seems like it’s spreading like wildfire across the industry with many games planning to incorporate the future. It is primarily seems as an attack on the secondhand games market of which GameStop is the leader. If you get the game used with no code, you’ll have to fork over extra cash to purchase your own pass.

Right now it’s only for PS3 games and they made it clear that the Pass is game-specific but we all know that it’ll probably find it’s way on to the games we all want to play.

Bethesda Talks More About Skyrim

July 6, 2011 by

Skyrim

Yesterday, Bethesda answered the questions of fans about The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on their forums. The fan interview answered questions regarding the features of the main character such as customization, race, interaction, and even your character’s voice. You won’t have one, but you’ll be doing a lot of Dragonshouts. It also covered the topics of gameplay such as combat, returning items and equipment, advantages of terrain, and the coveted battle against the dragons. If you want to know all of the specifics just give it a read here.

However if there is one major thing to take away from the fan interview, it’s that this is proof that Skyrim, like past entries, is a PC game to the core. Todd Howard explained how if PC players have a dedicated system they will get better textures, render models, and other effects that improve the game. He also made it clear that a Creation Kit is coming for PC.

“The PC version also gets higher res textures, larger render models, and a bunch of other effects you can scale up if your machine is a beast. Last but most important, is the Creation Kit we’ll be releasing for the PC. Modding the game and making it your own is very important to us and our fans, so we’re going to keep doing whatever we can in that area.”

Like the full force return of fighting games, it’s good to see so much PC dedicated content on the way.

Konami has just revealed two new characters for their Monster Hunter-esque turn-based RPG Frontier Gate, which is being developed by tri-Ace for the PSP, as well as some new screenshots. The new characters will be called Sigrid and Dandes respectively: Sigrid is a female knight from the federation of Kilkenia (spelling subject to change) and wielding a two-handed sword; Dandes is a retired settler who carries around a huge hammer. Think of a funny “Can’t touch this” reference, then hit the jump to see the new characters as well as the new screenshots.

Onlive CEO unveils new low latency Wireless Technology.

July 5, 2011 by

onlivewireless

The future of wireless technology and cloud gaming just got a little more exciting as CEO of Onlive Steve Perlman unveiled a new type of wireless technology at the inaugural NExTWORK technology conference last week.  The new technology is currently being called DIDO and is said to have ranges of up to 250 miles, have unlimited bandwidth, latency of 2 ms (tested at 30 miles), and signals strong enough to pass through solid objects.  Perlman is looking to have the technology available to consumers within a few years time.

As a user of Onlive myself the ability to use the service through wireless sounds sounds a whole lot better then my current solution of having a 50 foot  cat5 cable affectionately nicknamed “Big Blue” connecting my PC to my router.

Kenshi Joins Mortal Kombat Today

July 5, 2011 by

Kenshi

The next DLC character for Mortal Kombat is ready for bloodshed today. Kenshi, the blind telekinetic master is the second of characters in MK’s post-release roster with Skarlet as the first and two more fighters on the way including Rain and an unannounced character.

Kenshi is available for a stand-alone download for about $4.99 but if you’re part of the MK Season Pass on Xbox Live, you can get him for… $0.00. That sounds pretty good for 360 players but PS3 players probably won’t like the hefty price tag for a single fighter.

Rockstar No Longer Team Bondi’s Publisher

July 5, 2011 by

LA Noire

This could very well be the case for the L.A. Noire publisher. Such sour news isn’t the first to come out surrounding Team Bondi but it is the latest. Some leaked emails were obtained by Gamesindustry.biz that practically prove that the reported working conditions surrounding L.A. Noire’s development were true. A source for the site stated that Rockstar has made the effort to affirm that they will not be publishing Team Bondi’s next game.

“I’ve heard a lot about Rockstar’s distain for Team Bondi, and it has been made quite clear that they will not publish Team Bondi’s next game.”

So if this is true, it could change things for a possible L.A. Noire sequel or any future games from the studio. Whether you love or hate the crime-fighting title, I’m sure it’s success will have other publisher’s interested in the team.

Rune Factory 4 (3DS) Detailed

July 5, 2011 by

rune

Marvelous Entertainment recently released some new info on the 4th portable installment of their successful Harvest Moon spin-off series Rune Factory. No release date has been given as of yet, but the game will come out some time in 2011 and it’s extremely likely that Natsume will once again bring the game to the US and Europe.

In this 3DS-exclusive installment, you take control of either Les or Frey. At the beginning of the game, your character falls out of an airship and onto a dragon, losing his (or her) memory on impact. The dragon then somehow arranges your character to be regarded as the prince/princess of the country, giving you a little more freedom than previous games in the series and allowing you to construct buildings and institutions like pharmacies or smithies. For an introduction to some of the new systems employed in the game, check after the jump.
