June 5, 2009

Watching things in 3D has never been that successful, has it? Whether it’s cringing at a corny shark in Jaws 3D or playing Nintendo’s ill-fated Virtual Boy until developing a migraine, no one’s quite cracked the technology yet. But, as our friends at OPM UK are finding out, that could well change with the release of James Cameron’s Avatar.

Watch below, as Avatar’s executive producer, Patrick Naud, tells OPM why the tech Ubisoft are using could revolutionise gaming.

UK gets its own public game event ‘Game On! London’ (Xbox 360)

April 3, 2009

You might say that the UK is under-represented when it comes to public-access game events – shows where you can play previews of upcoming games and take part in multiplayer game tournaments. And pick up schwag.

Left 4 Dead cast to appear in music game (Left 4 Dead)

March 21, 2009

MEVO & the Grooveriders is a rhythm-based platformer for the PC that’s packed with funky tracks, bright colors, and lots of pretty candy-colored explosions. This cutesy playground is the last place you’d expect to see the four survivors from Valve’s frightening first-person shooter, Left 4 Dead. But if you purchase the special Steam version of the game, that’s exactly what you’ll get.
