This St. Paddy's Day Throw one Back with Slam Bolt Scrappers

1253d ago ... Slam Bolt Scrappers is one of those games that is just plain likable. While at a show like GDC I'm often asked for my favorite game, a question that's usually difficult to answer. There are games that show potential, games that intrigue, games that are striking but we never get to try hands on - and then there are games that you walk half a mile away from the convention for so that you can meet...

Japan Relief and N4G

1253d ago ... Hey, N4Gers! A rather serious post for you here, though one I think we can all tackle with vigor. The devastation in Japan is difficult for most of us to imagine, but what we have seen and heard makes us want to help however we can. For most of us, so far from the disaster, we won't ever feel like we can do enough. Below you will find a list of organizations that are active in Japan disaster...

GDC: Uncharted 3 Eyes-On

1254d ago ... I'm back and the embargo has (in internet time) long since lifted, but you still can't hear enough about Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, can you? Debuting its third dimension at GDC it was striking to see how well-suited the environments (and theatrics) characteristic of the Uncharted series are for 3D. Using a scene from a previously shown area in which Drake and Sully battle through a burn...

Torchlight XBLA Code Contest

1254d ago ... Did you read our interview with Runic Games ( ) and dream of the day that you could play Torchlight on your 360 - for free? Well let's make that happen! - Comment on this blog post with your avatar set to either the Vanquisher, Alchemist or Destroyer and tell us why you *need* Torchlight! - Ten winners will be drawn at 9 p.m. PST, March...

Submissions for the 2011 Into the Pixel Collection Now Open

1258d ago ... Things have been a little crazy and pushed back the posting of the remaining GDC hands-on/eyes-on goodies, here's an unrelated item with a look toward E3: This week the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) and the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) opened the submission process for the Into the Pixel (ITP) 2011 exhibit. Around since 2004 the ITP collection features the art...

GDC: Ear Force PX5 from Turtle Beach

1266d ago ... It's the early hours of GDC, Friday morning, and while most conference attendees are staring glassy-eyed into the tops of their Starbucks to-go cups, I'm entirely too keen to be out of bed and trying out the latest from Turtle Beach - the PX5. Of course, they did promise that the second half of the demo could be nap time. The wireless PX5 uses Bluetooth to pair with up to two devices simult...

GDC: El Shaddai

1266d ago ... Shane Bettenhausen of UTV Ignition took precious GDC time to show me around El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, a game that stubbornly defies classification. At times a third-person action game and others a 2D platformer, what El Shaddai is throughout is beautiful. The game's art is similarly difficult to pin down, at times drawing on woodblock prints, at others on watercolor brushstrokes...

GDC: Swarm

1267d ago ... Imagine your own pack of globular lemmings that you steer like a school of very self-sacrificing fish - sacrifice being the key word in Swarm. On hand to show off the madness this week at GDC were Shane Bettenhausen of UTV Ignition and Joel DeYoung of Hothead Games. Hothead, the guys behind the Penny Arcade games and DeathSpank, are now delivering an action-puzzler with a heavy dose of platform...

GDC: Resistance 3: "Choice-Based Shooter"

1267d ago ... First off, if you haven't played Resistance 1 or 2 and would prefer to not to read any spoilers, don't read this. If you have played through Resistance 2, then it's safe to proceed. This afternoon was the multiplayer reveal for Resistance 3, and while there was the opportunity to play the single player the big news is that the multiplayer in Resistance 3 will have 16 players max. Of course,...

GDC: inFAMOUS 2's User Generated Content to "let players into that sandbox"

1268d ago ... At this afternoon's inFAMOUS 2 presentation and demo the big reveal was user-generated content. Citing the problem with inFAMOUS as "at some point, it ended" the possibility of limitless missions created by players was introduced. Sucker Punch's development director Chris Zimmerman and designer Karl Deckard revealed the full-featured tools - with the same assets and behaviors as those used t...

GDC Day One

1269d ago ... Welcome to March! By now you've probably all checked out the March Contests Blog, but if you haven't, here are some directions: Yesterday morning I stopped off at the Microsoft Lobby Bar to play a few games. Regrettably, I fear I may never master the art of playing a game while holding an intelligent conversation and retaining the information fro...

GDC Pre-Game

1270d ago ... Just a quick note since I'm sure you're all pretty concerned about the ravages of my head cold and its snotty trail of destruction. Or maybe some GDC stuff. It's always fun traveling to a convention and surreptitiously eyeing fellow passengers on a flight, secretly estimating their relative geekiness and likelihood that they, too, will be enjoying the glut of tech throughout the week. We're...

N4G March Contest Details: Win a PS3 or 360

1271d ago ... Hello from GDC, N4Gers! I wanted to give you guys a heads up about the next round of monthly contests before March strikes - in case you need to prepare beforehand (stockpile bottled water and canned goods, perhaps?). LOYAL READER LOTTERY: Visit N4G at least once during every 24 hour period during the month of March and be entered into our Loyal Reader Lottery! If you want to keep track...

Interview with Runic Games

1273d ago ... Erich Schaefer, Brock Jones, and Wonder Russell answer our questions about Torchlight for 360 (achievements!), Torchlight 2 (new pet!), and what to do with PC gaming doomsayers. CS: For anyone that hasn’t heard the news - Torchlight is coming to Xbox 360. How long has that been in the works and when will it hit? RG: We’ve been working on the new game since Fall of 2010, and are very happy t...

N4G at GDC

1274d ago ... Hey, guys! N4G in human form will be at GDC next week - will you? If so, drop me a note, it would be great to meet up! If you won't but want your fill of GDC then stay tuned to this blog where I will post all my updates, impressions and interviews from the show. Bit of a short blog, huh? OK, here's 3 Men vs 15 Lions:

Slam Bolt Scrappers Interview with Eitan Glinert

1282d ago ... I asked Eitan Glinert, Fire Hose Games' very own Fire Chief, a series of brain melting questions. Fueled by Cheerios and Everclear, Eitan survived to tell us why FHG work with SOE, what he thinks about game demos, what he dislikes about motion control - and even reveals two additional character names for the first time! CS: Can you talk a little bit about the Fire Hose Games beginnings? Give...
