    “Gran Turismo 5″ update adds remote racing from your computer

    The headline makes it sound a lot cooler than it is, but this is still pretty neat. The 1.06 update for Gran Turismo 5 adds a feature that allows you to run B-Spec races against your friends from your Internet browser. You control your PS3 via the Gran Turismo website and still get experience points from the races. Like I said, neat. As long as you’ve got your computer, you can race anywhere you can get an Internet connection. What else does this update add? The ability to use custom courses in online races (courses must be created after downloading this update, however), more event settings, more rewards, the ability to use multiple monitors…there’s a lot to take in. Here’s everything that Polyphony has added. Prepare to be pleased. [Major Changes and New Features] ・Remote Racing [Remote Races] have been added to the bottom left of the [GT Mode] –

    “Call of Duty: Black Ops” gets two special unlocks for President’s Day weekend

    Why not celebrate President’s Day by playing a game with a President, right? Call of Duty: Black Ops is letting you do that this week by unlocking two special levels, one of which lets you play in a scenario featuring JFK, Robert McNamara, Fidel Castro and Richard Nixon. The “Five” level features the four leaders in a Pentagon meeting when all heck breaks loose and zombies start breaking into the building. As they do. (How do they get past the unimaginable amount of locks that were probably on the doors? One of them must have been a locksmith in a past life.) The other level, Dead Ops Arcade, is normally unlockable, but will be more easily accessible this week. It features you and up to three other soldiers in pursuit of a “Cosmic Silverback” though a veritable maze of arenas stocked with zombies. It is, apparently, a zombie-centric holiday. (Which

    THQ at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference

    During the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference Wednesday, THQ’s Brian Farrell told investors that in order for the firm to realize the potential of its new pricing model – which debuts with MX vs ATV: Alive – console makers need to “adjust their business models.” According to Farrell, THQ’s experimental packaged goods pricing model will help bring new people into the market, which reiterates his stance on the $59.99 game price point.  Thus, allowing third-parties to control their own micro-transactions on consoles, something Xbox 360 does not allow, it would become much easier to offer games at lower cost with more content available for purchase online. “What we really need, and we’ve been talking to them about it, is for Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo – if they really want to stay at the cutting edge of the games industry – they need to adjust their business models to allow

    Review – Fallout 3: New Vegas (PS3)

    ESRB: M (for Mature) Developer: Obsidian Entertainment Publisher: Bethesda Softworks Release Date: October 19, 2010 BUY In the first twenty minutes of game play Fallout New Vegas became the first game to pass the Bechdel Test, that I’ve played in two years on PS3. Since Heavenly Sword there has been a distinct lack of female avatars to play. The Bechdel Test, sometimes called the Mo Movie Measure or Bechdel Rule is a simple test which names the following three criteria: (1) it has to have at least two women in it, who (2) who talk to each other, about (3) something besides a man. I was able to create a playable female avatar, finally! Then as she began the game, the first tutorial missions are played co-op with a female NPC skill trainer. It is common to have female trainers in MMO’s like Dungeons and Dragons Online, but almost never
