Splendor doesnt come soon enough for most game companies.
Even as the Spring lull continues, there was a Playstation Day in the past
week, and a Wii Fit extravaganza coming in a few weeks.
Other than that, a Lord
of the Rings game and a pair of fourth editions are announced, a
new Wii Channel has arrived, and Jasper just may be in place for this summer.
Kaz Harai and friends had a get together in London to give
the European market, and the rest of the world to an extent, a look at just
where the former sales-leading Sony brand is going. Among the announcements
were enhanced Blu-ray 2.0 coverage,
Resistance multiplayer updates, and the normal propaganda that occupies
such events such as graphs and subtlety trashing to competition. The team at The Age Blogs have a more detailed rundown on the announcements here.
Check out the Resistance 2 gameplay demo from the event:
Wii Fit Day
prepare for Nintendo. Nintendo will be bringing its Wii Fit to New York's Central Park for charity. For every attendee who "gets on board" for a Wii Fit demo,
Nintendo will make a donation of $5 (up to $25,000 total) to the American Heart
Association in support of its effort to help Americans live healthier.
Expect crowds of people throughout the day, plus an
appearance by celebrity trainer Ashley Borden. Its fun and for a good cause,
so take your lunch time and try it out.
Lord of the Rings: Conquest
Conquest suits you as a single warrior trying to change the
tide of battle. Your favorite characters may be picked, and even you can find
yourself as one of the bad guys - including Sauron himself. With both Single Player and
Multiplayer modes, this may be on to watch.
Nothing really announced but job openings, but we all could
just imagine what this game could bring to the table. Every Doom in the past has
done something for the FPS genre, and even if the third wasnt as ground
breaking as the first two, the door is open for a genre that is overpopulated
Fight Night Round 4
Rewritten gameplay engine and more boxers are the draw to
the fourth Fight Night game in the series. For Tyson fans wondering where he has been
for the majority of this series, fear not, his presence has been confirmed.
Hopefully ear guards are as well.
For those who turn on their Wiis, the Nintendo Channel is
now live. Videos, recommendations and DS demos are now available. It definitely
provides something else for users to do.
360 Jasper Chips to
be available soon
Microsoft's Jasper 65nm chipset has been in reports for a
while, but finally Taiwanese companies are picking up the contracts for the
chips, and will allow from less wattage and less heat to push out the system.
No more cheap space heater/ gaming console combination.
may feel steep for those who bought the Orange Box for $59.99, but it is
actually worth the price.
The game still has the ability to make you think and on the
PC, are more levels available. Mods are an awesome addition for those who are
stuck on the console version. Go grab this today if you are missing the Orange Box.
