Rumor: Sonic Unleashed Screenshots.

Sonic Stadium, a Sonic fansite claims to have unearthed some screenshots of Sonic Unleashed. Apparently the screenshots were pulled from one of Sega's FTP servers. The screens seem to be both ingame and pre-rendered CG scenes. While they seem to be the genuine article, something just seems..wrong about all this. Elaborate hoax, or possibly a glimpse into Sega's next installment in Sonic franchise, you decide.




Call of Duty 4 Map Pack coming April 3rd

Not to be outdone by Halo 3's Legendary Map Pack, CoD4 will be getting a Map Pack of it's own entitled ‘Variety Map Pack’, which includes 4 maps, Kill Creek, Broadcast, Chinatown and Killhouse. The map pack hits XBL April 3rd for the meager fee of 800 Microsoft points.

Coincidentally, April 3rd happens to be the same day that CoD4's ‘Game of the Year edition’ is released in stores. The GoTY edition contains new box art and a coupon to download the maps for free.

Gamestop is also hosting a party on March 28th in San Jose and New York City to showcase the new maps. Present at the parties will be members of Infinity Ward, who will gladly sign your shirt, or just teabag your virtual corpse after knifing you to death.



Warhawk's Free, Biiiig v1.3 Patch Details

Finally we see a release date for this huge v1.3 patch for Warhawk that I've been getting so excited for, April 2nd, 2008. Best thing is the patch is going to be Free and includes a whole pile of new stuff. Watch the video then hit the jump to read about the rest of it.

First of all, you can view a majority of the patch pictures over at the Playstation Blog's Flickr.

If you take note at all the new funky Warhawk designs, you'll come to realize that those are the winners of the design contest that are having their patterns go into the game itself. Congrats to all the winners, I can't wait to fly around in your artwork.

Then there's the Wrench, which is new for troops. It can do all of three things, beat the enemy troops to hell, repair your vehicles, and destroy the enemy vehicles really fast. I foresee that one becoming the next knife.

As if the wrench wasn't cool enough, we get a Bio-Field Generator, which is like a mobile health station. You drop it down like a land mine and it emits your team's color, now if your teammates stand in the radius of it, they get healed; however, if your enemy team gets near it, they get injured. Super cool!

To begin integration with the up and coming Playstation Home, Warhawk will be able to have a team meet up in an apartment and discuss plans for the upcoming match, whip out a virtual PSP and begin the Warhawk game without ever having to switch through menus. Tactical lovers should look forward to that one.

Finally there will be new VOIP options as well, with an Open-Mic option to be enabled. Yaaaay, I've always wanted to sit there and have the enemy just scream at me. Or...wait...will they be hearing my never ending harrassing insults. Either way, sounds fun. That's not all the new VOIP options give though, now there will be a little menu in game and between games that shows who's talking and when, so no more guessing of which voice goes to whom.

It seems like we're going to be getting a lot of bang for our buck. The buck that we aren't spending on it.



Heroically Free Map Pack

Halo fans all around are creaming in their Red and Blue armor because Halo's Heroic Map Pack, which was previously 800 Microsoft Points, will be free at 2 a.m. on March 25th for an unspecified time. Unfortunately the Legendary pack has no inclination to become free any time soon.

Good deal cheap bastard gamers, enjoy your maps.



Gibson files Lawsuits Against......Everyone....

It seems anyone who is even vaguely associated with the Guitar Hero franchise is unsafe from Gibson's fierce lawyers; Gibson is filing lawsuits against Harmonix, Viacom, and EA for violating their patent for a device on which "a musician can simulate participation in a concert by playing a musical instrument and wearing a head-mounted 3D display that includes stereo speakers."

In addition, Gibson is also suing any major retailers selling Guitar Hero games, which includes Gamestop, Kmart, Target and Walmart. However, in the heat of all this legal action, Gibson has neglected to file a lawsuit against Activision, the developer of Guitar Hero III.

I have one question for Gibson however, why not sue konami? I mean...they made GuitarFreaks. Its not like GuitarFreaks has been out since the days of the PSX or anything, right?

SOCOM Confrontation

By now most of you have probably heard that the Playstation 3 will be graced with the next iteration of SOCOM, this one being SOCOM: Confrontation. However now the list of Special Forces which will be available in game, on launch, has been announced officially and they are the following:

* Navy Sea, Air, and Land (SEALs, United States)
* Special Air Service (SAS, United Kingdom)
* Kommando Spezialkräfte (KSK, Germany)
* Unidad de Operaciones Especiales (UOE, Spain)
* 1er RĂ©giment de Parachutistes d'Infanterie de Marine (1er RPIMa, France)

IGN says this about the special forces usefulness "Joining a special force is now a perk associated with joining a clan; solo players will still be able to play as either commandos or mercenaries, but special forces (and their associated uniforms, gear, and weapons) will only be available to clan members."

Seeing how we've never covered SOCOM: Confrontation before, there will be more info about the game after the jump.

First of all, SOCOM: Confrontation is not being handled by the obvious Zipper developers, but it's been picked up by Slant Six, the guys doing the SOCOM game for the PSP.

Sorry single player preference people, this one's being targeted for an online-only experience; so if you were hoping for a story-mode, you're out of luck. Since it's going to be online only there's a lot of focus on leader boards, clans, and all of the delicious little bits that come with an online game.



Bad Company Beta Charges

In a quick follow-up to ryizzel's post yesterday about the Bad Company Beta, the word on the street is EA is going to be charging extra money over xbox live for 10 locked guns which, one can only assume, would destroy the multiplayer with certain people having extra (and possibly better) guns.

DICE launches Multiplayer Beta for Battlefield: Bad Company

Anyone awaiting the summer release of EA's Battlefield: Bad Company should be overjoyed to hear that EA DICE is launching beta on the 360 starting March 25th. IGN insider and IGN Founders' Club will distributing keys to members and the public in North America and the U.K. GameStop will also be handing out 5000 Beta keys for the XBL beta on the "first come first serve" basis.

Players will wage war on Two maps on one gameplay mode (Gold Rush). The multiplayer beta test also include Infantry kits, an unlimited skill tree and rewards.




Ubi Clancy

Ubisoft has purchased the property rights to Mr. Tom Clancy's name today, and they're prepared to milk it for all it's worth. There's even talk of a Tom Clancy MMO that Ubisoft is researching for. How the heck would that even work? Ideas readers?

The whole press release after the break.

Ubisoft announces that it has concluded an agreement with Mr. Tom Clancy to acquire all intellectual property rights to the Tom Clancy name...

Today, Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, announces that it has concluded an agreement with Mr. Tom Clancy to acquire all intellectual property rights to the Tom Clancy name, on a perpetual basis and free of all related future royalty payments, for use in video games and ancillary products including related books, movies and merchandising products.

The price of this all cash acquisition is not currently disclosed. Post acquisition, Ubisoft expects to have a net cash position of around 130 million Euros by the end of fiscal 2007-08, compared to a previous expectation of approximately 150 million Euros. Additional payments will be made as well in fiscal 2008-09 and fiscal 2009-10.

On the basis of past performance of Tom Clancy branded video games, and excluding any potential contribution coming from sales of ancillary products, the royalty savings generated by this acquisition are estimated to have an average positive impact on Ubisoft's operating income of a minimum of 5 million Euros per year.

"After ten years of a highly successful collaboration which has seen the creation of blockbusters that set standards in the videogame industry, such as Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six, today, acquiring the perpetual property rights of the Tom Clancy name for video games and related projects is a major event,” stated Yves Guillemot, Chief Executive Officer at Ubisoft. “The future of our industry lies in our capacity to create and develop brands that captivate consumers and that present a myriad of opportunities for the full spectrum of entertainment, be it video games, books, movies or other media. The Tom Clancy brand is recognized around the world for offering exciting video games, films and books. The most recent example of such value creation through brand management is the EndWar book, based on the video game story, which has been in the NY Times top 10 Paperback Mass Market Fiction bestseller list for the last four weeks. Capitalizing on the strong franchises that we’ve built over the past 10 years, we will take the Tom Clancy game brand to the next level of the global entertainment industry."



ESRB Gives GTA IV A Rating of......

C'mon, do I really have to tell you what the ESRB has rated GTA IV? Mature. Surprise!

Mature for the fact that it contains the following: partial nudity, strong language, strong sexual content, use of drugs and alcohol, blood and intense violence. That's a pretty long list isn't it? After the break there's a comparison chart of the ratings given to all the GTA games.

Grand Theft Auto
Rated Mature based on:

* Animated Blood
* Strong Language

Grand Theft Auto 2
Rated Mature/Teen (depending on platform) based on:

* Animated Violence
* Strong Language
* Suggestive Themes

Grand Theft Auto 3
Rated Mature based on:

* Blood
* Strong Language
* Violence

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Rated Mature based on:

* Blood and Gore
* Strong Language
* Strong Sexual Content
* Violence

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Rated Mature based on:

* Blood and Gore
* Intense Violence
* Strong Language
* Strong Sexual Content
* Use of Drugs

Then San Andreas got bumped up to an Adults Only rating thanks to the hot coffee mod and was the best topic of conversation for months after that.

Grand Theft Auto IV
Rated Mature based on:

* Partial Nudity
* Strong Language
* Strong Sexual Content
* Use of Drugs and Alcohol
* Blood
* Intense Violence

I guess Rockstar is getting more hardcore with every passing year.

Tactic Gamers Rejoice, Final Fantasy Tactics A2 Is On It's Way

As the title says, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift is coming to your Nintendo DS on June 24th, 2008.

It will be somewhat of a sequel to FFTA way back on the GBA, so it'll feature the same same universe but no prior-knowledge of the games is required to hop right in; however, you may want to go back and try it out to catch some of those quirky references and easter eggs that Square Enix is so well known for. Check out the press release after the break for more detailed information.


The Latest Square Enix Tactical RPG Enters the Ivalice Alliance on June 24, 2008

LOS ANGELES (March 19, 2008) – Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of Square Enix™ interactive entertainment products in North America, announced today that the latest entry in the IVALICE ALLIANCE™ series, FINAL FANTASY TACTICS® A2: Grimoire of the Rift™ is set to transport players to the fantastical world of Ivalice on June 24, 2008.

Halo's Legendary Map Pack

Halo 3 is going to be getting the "Legendary Map Pack" that will have 3 new maps for all you Haloids to tea-bag each other on for hours on end, all for the low price of 800 Microsoft Points. Only two of the three have been announced in full detail, with the third for "people who like smaller maps". Read about the other two after the break.

Ghost Town is a battle-scarred maze of narrow passages and dangerous ruins outside the once-prosperous city of Voi. Collapsed ceilings and shell-battered buildings provide both valuable cover and deadly traps, as catwalks and stairways take the fight from claustrophobic ground combat to dizzying rooftop battles. Ghost Town is a mid-sized map ideal for Team Slayer games and smaller, objective types.

The second map, Avalanche, is a tribute to Sidewinder, a "Halo: Combat Evolved" fan-favorite. This massive, vehicle-oriented objective map adds a twist to its classic predecessor with all new interiors, dramatically reshaped exteriors and brand new vehicle variants. Take a ride and admire the visual variety from the cockpit of the retuned Hornet.

Save Your Relationship With Your Gamer Guy, Gals

Mike Smith a journalist for Yahoo! Games has recently published an article titled "Seven Ways to Win Back Your Gaming Spouse". This list is invariably for the ladies to salvage what little bits of relationship could possibly remain with all of us gamer guys who want absolutely nothing to do with a girl. Unless she's giving us the newest Unreal game, and in a Zelda costume.

After the break I'll post the list with my input after each one, but if you're not into reading all of that you can find the original article right here.

Now it's not that I didn't enjoy this article, or that it really conflicts against any of my personal beliefs, I just found it to be a bit.....corny. I digress though, let us carry on.

1. Learn from the game

Games like World of Warcraft use classic behavioral control techniques: they tie small rewards very closely to repetitive chores. If your spouse is neglecting household tasks -- a common complaint among sufferers -- try employing a little positive reinforcement. The next time he empties the trash, play a loud 'Ding!' sound and tell him his Refuse-Disposal skill just increased.

Ok, I can't say much for this one because I've used the RPG -> Real Life system before. Working out for instance, every strength point I earn I have to do 5 or 10 more of a set of whatever work-out I'm doing to earn another. Ding!

2. Suggest a date at a video game movie

Just make sure it's a good one, because most of them are terrible. Resident Evil is a good choice, and assuming your spouse is male, the prospect of staring at Milla Jovovich for an hour and a half should certainly pique his interest. Don't let him sneak off to play his game once the movie is done, either: segue into a more intimate scenario before it ends, or you'll lose his attention.

No. Just no. Ladies, if you honestly think this is a good idea, you need to NOT date a gamer. Any self-respecting nerd knows that the game-based movies are going to suck, the only reason he would want to see it is if it happens to be his favorite gaming series ever. Even then it's risky to take him due to the overwhelming disappointment that comes with every video game movie.

3. Fake a power outage; cuddle up with candles and a board game

No matter how bad your addiction is, you can't play Warcraft with no electricity. Slip out to the junction box and flip the switch (after, of course, making sure any sensitive equipment is safely powered down). Your spouse will be devastated, but they'll be looking for something to keep their mind off the game. What better chance to propose lighting a few candles and playing a round of Scrabble?

Bad idea, after grinding for 5 hours straight and finally acquiring the latest Epic the best way to make a gamer reach for a gun or noose is to take it all away from him. This idea is almost as bad as deleting his save files (NEVER EVER DO THAT ONE EITHER).

4. Put some game into your nighttime activities

If your spouse's gaming addiction is cutting into your bedroom time, think about how you might switch up your usual routine. If they're into military games like Call of Duty or Splinter Cell, uniforms aren't hard to find (nor are night-vision cameras, if you're game). But if they call you a "n00b," it might be time to think about kicking them to the curb.

While this may be true in some cases, not all gamers play war games because they think chicks in uniforms are hot. Some people just like to kill things, or the challenge of taking out the round leader and tea-bagging his corpse. A better costume would be Rayne or Rikku. (Mmmmm, Rikku....)

5. Try a different kind of role-playing game

If you're having trouble distracting your husband from the game, surprise him with a treat. World of Warcraft is packed with sexy female characters (and, let's face it, most other video games). With a little effort in the wardrobe department, you can recapture his attentions by dressing up as a character from the game. We'd suggest a Night Elf as a good starting outfit. For bonus points, learn the character's corresponding dance moves.

Well darn, this one is pretty much idea number 4 but more involved. Nothing to say here, Night Elves FTW.

6. Get away from it all

Surprise your spouse with a weekend getaway to distract them from their addiction. Something that incorporates outdoor activities is best, because then he or she won't have the time or energy to miss their game. Try skiing, mountain biking, watersports, or fishing, or head for an action-packed hotspot like Vegas or New Orleans. Stay away from relaxing beach vacations, and for goodness sake, leave the laptop at home.

While this is a good idea in some cases, some gamers just want to game. For instance I was contemplating what to do over Spring Break today and I realized that I don't want to go anywhere or do anything special, what I want to do most is get a stack of new or unfinished games and grind away. Maybe that's just me though, readers I need your opinions here.

7. If you can't beat 'em...

If all else fails, it's time to consider extreme measures. Have you ever played the offending game yourself? Lots of couples play Warcraft (or similar online games) as a team, leveling up complementary characters and turning isolated and nonconstructive activities into good, old-fashioned quality time together. Most massively multiplayer games are deceptively easy to learn, and you'll have the benefit of an in-house expert to answer your questions in exhaustive detail. Just be careful not to start shirking familial duties yourself.

This is the best idea on the list. If you're not prepared to do a little co-op with your gamer boyfriend, then guess what, you WILL get ignored. He doesn't want to make you feel bad or anything, but there are just certain gears that turn differently in gamers' brains. It's as simple as that, grab P2's controller and have a blast.



Multiplayer in DS version of Disgaea

Recently, an interviewer from CrispyGamer got a chance to sit down with Jack Niidan, PR manager of NIS america, to talk about the much anticipated release of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. Since Disgaea: Hour of Darkness was announced for the DS many fans have been wondering what will make the game different from the PSP version. Niidan touches on that in this interview, and even talks about the possibility of bringing Disgaea 2 to the DS.

The main feature of Disgaea DS is the multi-player mode. Fans that are tired of the original can still get a kick out of this game by destroying their buddy's Laharl and Etna.

Yes, thats right, now you and your friends may battle it out using your favorite characters from Disgaea. Wifi support hasn't been confirmed, but I'm sure we will get more details in the coming months. The game will also include a unique Battle feature that makes use of the DS's touch screen. Fans may also be relieved to hear that the DS version will retain all the content from the PSP version, but with extra content.

An External Link To A Rant

Yesterday ryizzel did a rant about all of the DBZ money-milking games out there, to which an anonymous reader gave him a lecture about which I will proudly post here after the break.

Dragon Ball Z is probably the world's most prominent and popular anime franchise. Nearly every gaming system of the past 15 years has in some way felt the sheer force that the name brings with it in sales. While I can't speak for the quality of this particular title, several of the previous ones have been very innovative and immensely fun as far as fighting games go. I mean, if you're gonna take this point of view, then why aren't you ragging on Namco for putting out so many Tekkens on the PS2, or Nintendo for making so many Mario games. They do it because:
1. The names alone can move nearly any product, third party or otherwise.
2. Because those are the games people want to play.
Heaven forbid any company wanting to make money on a successful franchise. It's a shame you won't get to find out what this title is like, because you've already made up your mind about it without even playing it. And truly a nice job on that blanket statement against anime fans as well. Truly "Black" and "White" journalism there, pal.

Very well said Anonymous man. I see you mentioned the Mario games and other such characters, well how convenient for now Calin Ciabai of Softpedia has published a rant referring to that exact topic! Go read the rant and lecture him too good Anon.

It's here.

Note, we do not discriminate against games here at B&W, our distaste for the DBZ fighting games is the fact that it's getting more and more corny by bringing in characters like Janemba and Pikkon (is he even in one of the games?), we LOVED DBZ, and both ryizzel and I are anime addicts. If Tekken, DOA, and Virtua Fighter didn't have such high standards for their games we would definitely bitch about them too.

Also this was an easy way to introduce that rant which I thoroughly enjoyed reading.

I've got another free game for you guys this week, called Nexuiz.

Nexuiz is a Opensource 3d Deathmatch game availible for Windows, Mac and Linux. While Nexuiz may lack the flashy gimmicks of the Online FPS shooters today, it's still a pretty fun experience. There are numerous game modes in Nexuiz, including Capture the flag, Team Deathmatch and Domination. Nexuiz also has a 20 level single player campaign if gibbing people online isn't your thing.

I originally found this game a year back, in my never ending quest to defeat boredom. Since then this game has made many of improvements, more specifically in the graphics department. All textures in the game now have higher resolution and the player animations look smoother.

Check Nexuiz's Official site here.

A Series That Must Die.

Today I went to the mall to pick up a copy of Condemned 2: Bloodshot (they were out....I should have pre-ordered) and I saw something that filled me with disgust. The latest game based on the anime series, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3.

What the hell man, this is like the 7th game I've seen for the franchise on the Ps2. It's basically the same as the first game in the series, except with shiny new cell shaded graphics and dumbed down gameplay so that the basement dwelling, rabid anime fanboys that actually buy every piece of shit Funimation queefs out can understand how to pull off a Hadoken...ahem Kamehameha.

Granted, they do include new characters with each game, but guess what? They are all shitty secondary characters from the anime that only appeared for 3 episodes, tops. I wish I could just take DBZ out back and put it out of it's misery, no franchise deserves this.

sigh.../end rant

Metal Gear Solid movie producer seeks writer/director

In a recent interview on the red carpet of Sony's upcoming movie, 21. Michael De Luca, producer of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie, expressed interest in having Kurt Wimmer write the script (and possibly directing the movie). Wimmer's past movies include Ultraviolet, The Recruit, and the cult classic Equilibrium.

Though Wimmer appears to be a good writer, I don't understand why they can't get David Hayter to write. Not only does he have a good knowledge of the series (being solid snake's voice actor) but has also written for movies like X2, and The Scorpion King. Oh well, at least they didn't get Uwe boll to be director.....yet.



An Apology For the Last Two Days

As the title says, we're sorry guys. We've kinda bummed out the last two days (our first days without any posts at all). But we have good excuses! I swear!

You see, my household recently acquired a Wii, and for those of you with one you should understand perfectly. Wii Sports and Super Mario Galaxy have pretty much dominated my weekend and eliminated my will to be responsible.

As for ryizzel, the very depths of the internet took him from our sweet tender grasp and no one was there to retrieve him. Luckily, I'm back as I've learned to control my addiction towards the Wii and I'll make sure we do double the posts this week to make up for our lack. Sorry again guys.
