    Majesco has plans for 3D zombies in your hand

    When the Nintendo 3DS launches this March, we’ll be seeing some familiar faces. But Majesco would prefer for us to see zombified faces as well as our own in their latest titles, exclusively for that system. Pet Zombies in 3D, developed by 1st Playable Productions, is sort of like Nintendogs + Cats, but instead…well, you’re raising a little, decaying human. Um, ew. Play with your zombie in the cemetery or act out a little bit of Dead Rising in the mall. Without the insane level of clobbering. Unlock new, already-decaying clothing. All in 3D, with occasional use of the 3DS’ accelerometer. That’s…special. Looking for something a little cooler? How about a kart racer that lets you drive the vehicle as an avatar? Sounds a little better. Face Kart: Photo Finish lets you take a picture of your face, map it to an avatar, and race with a very personalized racer

    Turtle Beaches unveil New Headset line for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC

    Every since I have held one of these babies in my hands, placed the wonderful ear pieces over my ears and heard the glorious sounds of gunfire ringing through in 5.1 surround sound, I have been in love with the Turtle Beach line of gaming headphones.  Now, Turtle Beaches are add more gaming headphones to their already well renound headphone collection. Coming to the collect will be the Earforce PX5, Earforce P 11, and the Earforce XC1. The PX5 is a programable wireless headset like nothing anyone has seen for the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360. What makes this wireless headset like nothing else is the fact that the user can program their headset to the specifications that they desire, depending on what the user is doing. For example, the customization is based on the chat, gaming and mic signals.  Also, the PX5 is the first headset in its

    Final Fantasy XIII-2 announced and more from Square Enix’s press conference

    This is going to be a bullet point list, but thanks to @rpgsite‘s livetweeting the Square Enix press conference today (as culled from a number of Japanese gaming blogs, but I’m going with them because my Japanese is rusty and practically nonexistent), we’ve got a ton of information on Square Enix titles for the very near future. Thanks so much to them for getting the information up quickly. This post will be updated as new information comes, so hold on to your JRPG-lovin’ hats. Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a real thing. It is happening. For PS3 and 360. In 2011. (In Japan. The English-speaking world will have to wait, as usual. Probably.) I’m already hoping for Dresspheres, but I won’t hold my breath. There will be a new character hanging out with Lightning (and the gang). This game will be directed by Motomu Toriyama, who was responsible for FFXIII and

    Full details on PS3 version of “Portal 2″ released – Steamworks support makes it more awesome

    In the wee hours of the morning, Valve dropped the full details on the PS3 version of Portal 2, whose release marks the debut of Steam on this generation’s consoles. Not only will each PS3 copy of the game include a Mac/PC copy for Steam – after linking your PSN and Steam accounts – but it’ll also include cross-platform (Mac/PC vs. PS3) multiplayer and cloud-based storage for your PS3 saved games. This Steamworks-enabled title will also include cross-platform chat so you can talk to all of your Steam friends while you’re on the console. (Now, if they can make PS3s, PCs and Macs talk – why on EARTH can’t Sony get cross-game chat going? Just saying.) “We made a promise to gamers at E3 that Portal 2 for the PlayStation 3 would be the best console version of the product,” said Gabe Newell, co-founder and president of Valve. “Working together
