Welcome to Girlfriend Mode - -a new column for MTV Multiplayer where I (Kiala Kazebee, woman) talk about the serious business of games, the games industry and my period. JOKES. I makes jokes. Anyway I hope you enjoy my column about vaginas. I mean games.
It's been 24 hours since the XBox live stream reveal and I think we can all agree the reaction has been a little uh...rough. To begin, here's a quick round up of the anger, frustration and confusion fangirls and boys have been spreading round the webs.
"Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition" is heading to Windows PCs this July, Warner Bros. Interactive announced today. As the title of the game suggests, this version of the award-winning brawler will come komplete with all that juicy DLC.
The PlayStation Store is testing out a new video streaming technology that they hope will make movie and video streams a bit faster and smoother on your PlayStation 3. The program is open beta right now, discounting a few movies while Sony gets user opinions on the update.
Interceptor, Dogmeat, that giggling jaggoff pooch from Duck Hunt, and now -- Mocap Dog. Look at him. He's so cute in his little red jumpsuit. You're a mocap dog; yes yoooooouuu are! I bet you want a million scritches.
Additionally, there's BTS footage about some new Call of Duty game after the jump -- but more importantly DOGGIES!!! Read More...
It finally happened. After all of the rumors, speculation, hype and nonsense, Microsoft has revealed the next-generation Xbox console, strangely dubbed Xbox One. Unfortunately, I must have missed the part where they talked about all of the cool next-gen games we'll be playing.
The new "console war" is something we've all been anxious for, but for me there may already be a clear winner. The conference started off well, quickly introducing us to the new Xbox One dashboard. But, seeing it filled with TV shows, streaming services and movies was a bit of a let down, especially after Sony came out of the gate with games in the front seat. Yesterday's event at Microsoft's Redmond headquarters felt more like a TiVo party than a games console reveal and, in all honesty, that's exactly what I expected. After learning former CBS exec Nancy Tellum was joining the team, it was clear Microsoft had decided to put a stronger focus on film and video entertainment. Don't get me wrong, a "Halo" TV series with Steven Spielberg on board is pretty darn awesome, but it sadly seems to come at the cost of pushing games to the side.
Xbox One, huh? Better than Durango and way better than Xbox 720 though I still think it should be called NeXtBox ~ sigh. Anyways big, big news from the live event earlier. Here's our top 10 favorite parts! Read More...
By now you've probably heard about the Xbox One, Microsoft's new game console that was announced today. That reveal also included a deep dive into Call of Duty: Ghosts, the upcoming shooter in the ongoing series from Activision, due out this November. We were able to get a sneak peek at the title last week, and were treated to an underwater sequence from the game that involved following an enemy submarine and destroying it. Read More...
So I hear Microsoft has some big announcement today about some kind of new "ecksbawks" and it's supposed to play the next "Call of Duty" vidjagame. OK, OK -- snark aside --MS's next big thing is getting all gussied up before the prom night that is E3 and we're liveblogging it here! The Pre-show starts at 12PM ET with the main event beginning at 1PM ET. Read More...
A couple of weeks back, I had the chance to play the level on display in the new "Splinter Cell: Blacklist" trailer, pitting Sam and Briggs against a highly-trained Pakistani security force as well as terrorists bent on getting getting access to an unsecured nuke.
Will the Kinect finally be integrated (and essential) to the Xbox experience? Has Microsoft finally shrugged off the wounds of their HD DVD foray and finally embraced Blu-ray? Will the next Xbox require an always-on connection and vomit out used discs? Excitement for the next Microsoft console has been tempered by doubt as the software giant has allowed the narrative to sort of run away with itself. Really, they should have been showing more stuff like IllumiRoom to keep us interesting.
CVG reports that the Kinect and projector concept, which throws in-game visuals and effects onto the wall surrounding your screen, would make its official during tomorrow's Xbox event in Redmond.
