While we were aware that 3D is the next step for gaming, we had no idea that all past, present, and future games can support the “realistic” effect.

What the Disney/Marvel merger could mean for gamers

Earlier this week, news broke that Disney will be acquiring Marvel Entertainment and its vast portfolio of over 5000 characters. The agreement came to Marvel shareholders receiving $30 in cash and about 0.745 shares of Disney for each share they held, totaling approximately $4 billion.

As fans of both Disney and Marvel, we can’t help but wonder how this will affect the gaming community. Will we be seeing a cross-over game featuring superheroes and cartoon characters ala Kingdom Hearts or will the differences be much more subtle?

First Bioshock 2 Multiplayer Trailer

Bioshock 2 is coming.

With the single player mode set some time after the original game and the multiplayer aspect set prior to the first game’s story, we don’t mind telling you we were concerned about the continuity of the game as a whole.

That and we were worried the game would lose the Bioshock ‘feel’. Note we said were; past tense.

The reason why PS3 Slim owners cannot use Linux, according to Sony

The one feature that the PS3 Slim lacks but all of its bigger and fatter brothers do have is the support for ‘Other OS’, in other words the ability to install Linux on the system.

Although it isn’t really a feature that has taken off, some users are a little annoyed that they cannot enjoy the same pleasure as others

Out with the old, in with the new; PS3 boxart evolves

We understand that PS3 boxart isn’t amongst the most interesting topics but since Sony has completely redesigned the PlayStation 3, and its logos, they would have to change the style of the branding on games to suit.

Scene It? Buzz-a-like coming to the PS3

Scene It? is that game that is very much like Buzz! but has only ever featured on the Xbox 360 before now. In fact, it was one of the titles Microsoft focused on for their advertising campaign last year, using it to show the accessibility of the console.

Today, Screenlife have announced the latest iteration of the franchise – ludicrously entitled Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen! – will be the first of the set to make it on to the PlayStation 3. The game will also debut on the Wii and return to the 360.

Demon’s Souls is shaping up to be a pretty awesome game, judging by this latest walkthrough trailer.

We have to admit, we were a bit concerned after early footage seemed to portray the player as a character with little strength, who died if anything heavier than a dust particle hit them.

Thankfully, we can put those fears to one side now.
