No i’m not joking.

DOA5 Director Yohei Shimbori has revealed that feedback for DOA5 is calling for bigger boobs.

“We actually got a lot of feedback from people who were playing it, saying, ‘We want bigger breasts. Make the characters more like that'”. Apparently this was surprising to Shimbori, which is difficult to believe.

No official word on an increase in size yet

It was bound to happen and I think most of the videogame sport community had an itchy feeling it was only a matter of time, but as of this morning EA sports once long running title NBA Live 13 has been official canned. After weeks of speculation around how exactly they would attack 2k Games Basketball dominance.The colossal sporting conglomerate has waved its white flag in defeat after leaked video and media hype at this years E3.

David Icke had an eel in his bum

David Icke is controlled by a psychic eel in his bum.  Or at least, that’s the lesson I took away from this week’s shambolic podcast.  Other things include Foxconn getting up to their standard things, some info on Wii U pricing and Far Cry PC sysreqs, a Mass Effect trilogy set, some things that Sony are doing, and a discussion of our experiences playing Tekken Tag 2 and Dead or Alive 5.

ROBOT COMMANDO

Something about Dungeons & Dragons, the rats stage an exodus from SS Zynga, plague returns to Azeroth, dudes are still in a Greek jail, and there’s another Playstation thing.

I know, right?

The Return of Dragon Age will be Bigger, Deeper and Powered by Frostbite 2

SYDNEY, AustraliaSeptember 18, 2012 – BioWare, a Label of Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA), today announced Dragon Age™ 3: Inquisition, the next chapter in the award-winning role-playing game (RPG) franchise, is in development at BioWare Edmonton and BioWare Montreal.

The annual sport game releases may or may not tickle your wallet strings it is always interesting to see what each game has done to up the ante from their previous years, NBA 2k series has by far been the shining star in Basketball games for the past 5 years and this year they finally have some sort of challenge with NBA live 2013 ( and by challenge I mean victim).

The resurrection of the NBA live franchise is a surprising addition to the sport genre scene as their 2012 NBA title which changed its name to NBA elite was pulled by EA Sports Head Honcho Peter Moore after a lacklustre Demo that created numerous YouTube videos and earned EA sports a Jester type reputation in the Basketball video game community.

Its clear in the trailers and gameplay footage of NBA Live 2013 that they have chased after the graphical improvements and canned animations as opposed to 2k13’s approach of Gameplay improvements and a physics engine.


As you can see from the comparison clip of the early builds,they are both very different games.

NBA Live 2013 vs NBA 2k13 Comparrison

So what do you think? EA has a leg up on the competition or 2k will reign supreme for another year?

Add your opinion below on things you can see in the clips that stand out to you.

The Metro 2033 game, based on the book of the same name is set to make it’s way to the big screen. MGM have taken up the option and set up rookie writer F. Scott Frazier. The producer is Mark Johnson, who’s works include Chronicles of Narnia and Galaxy Quest.

Here is a run down of the features on the upcoming Minecraft Update for Xbox 360

Creative Mode

An absolute no-brainer for first on the list. If you’ve played Minecraft for more than a couple of hours, you’ll know that crafting anything grander than the basic means of survival can be incredibly tricky. Even if you turn the enemies off, you’ll still have to wrangle with limited/hard-to-reach resources and the fundamental problem of gravity. It’s a testament to the raw, unfetteredgumption of the OXM community that our Minecraft Xbox 360 server is such a spectacular place to be. I’m sure the craftsmen and women of OXM Land are eagerly anticipating the arrival of Creative Mode, which kicks gravity to the curb and hands you infinite blocks.

Strongholds, Temples, Abandoned Mine Shafts

There’s tonnes to uncover in any given Minecraft world, but right now, there’s a general absence of structure. The terrain generator throws up the odd subterranean wiggle, but the game’s “Dungeons” are a disgrace to roguelikes everywhere – small, featureless rooms containing monster spawning blocks and treasure chests. Future updates will fold in labyrinthine Abandoned Mine Shafts, mysterious Strongholds and biome-specific Temples, rife with precious gear and unique monsters. It’s a step towards Skyrim’s tailor-made caverns and fortresses, but there’s still that random generation element which makes Minecraft so endlessly amusing.

Stuff to do in the Nether

The Nether’s bloody boring at present. It’s just a massive bucket of lava. Coming soon, to an otherworldly portal near you – Nether Strongholds, home to blocks which ceaselessly generate flaming puffs of semi-sentient death, and Nether Wart, an important ingredient for potions. You’ll never want to leave. Well, until you knock heads with a Ghast.

Animal breeding

Animals aren’t just for slaying at random – they’re for feeding and breeding, then slaying at random. Once this update arrives, you’ll be able to shove handfuls of wheat down nearby cows, pigs and so forth to get them in the mood for some sweet, sweet loving. They’ll do the dirty, and then you’ll have a smaller, high-pitched version to dote over till you get bored and punch it. Animal husbandry is a delicate process.

Golems

Packs of tamed wolves not cutting it for you, ally-wise? Tremble ecstatically at the thought of the Iron Golem and its somewhat less fearsome but more amusing cousin, the Snow Golem. Created by whacking a pumpkin atop a stack of snow blocks, Snow Golems are only too happy to engage hostile mobs and leave a generous trail of snow, providing resources for the creation of yet more Snow Golems. It’s a vicious cycle! But not as vicious as the Iron Golem, the second hardiest mob in the entire game after the mystical Ender Dragon. They take a lot of iron to create, but they’ll massacre anything that strays within swinging distance.

NPC Villages

Generated where there’s sufficient flatland, NPC villages are a pleasant sight when you want to brutalise lots of dim, make-believe human beings and can’t be bothered messaging one of your Xbox Live friends. Watch you don’t antagonise larger settlements unduly, though, as the bigger the population, the greater the number of defending Iron Golems (you can take advantage of this by locking a bunch of villagers in an appropriately sized room, then laying traps for the Golems they spawn and harvesting their leftover metals). Each village contains either a smithy or a tower, which contains a treasure chests. Nothing which gives rise to treasure can possibly be bad.

Enchanting

No more shall your arrows expend themselves in a single bowshot. No longer shall a block turn into something else when you mine it. Both these annoyances and more can be addressed by wizardifying your tools via an Enchantment table. Turn your sword into a gout of flame! Ensorcel your axe so that it won’t degrade as fast! Just make sure you have enough enemy-dropped experience orbs to pay off the Powers of Darkness.

Hunger

This is the only feature on the list that we’re slightly worried about. It introduces a gauge which must be replenished by eating food in order to restore health. Moving, attacking and taking damage will drain the gauge. This could be thrilling, adding an additional element of risk to longer journeys, or it could be a chore. Most likely it’ll be a bit of both, depending on the mood you’re in.

I am the blaster master podcaster of disaster, for this, the 195th episode of the ButtonMasher Podcast. So comfortable are we with the four-person format of podcast, we would rather substitute a mute feline in who will claw people that try and keep it in one place rather that just go old-school with three people. This week brings stories of questionably unethical office practices, and espionage! Oh, the intrigue!
