There were far too many sparkle wiggles in this podcast, for which I am truley sorry, because you can’t fright back.
You may not have heard of the Zune. Main reason being because it hasn’t yet launched in New Zealand. In short it’s basically a portable multimedia device, Microsoft’s answer to the iPod Touch. In a Zune HD promotional video from Microsoft, 3D gaming is revealed as one of the Zune’s new features. The video shows a brief glimpse of a 3D racer. Anyone can currently make games for the platform using XNA so it’s not totally clear if this is advertising 3D XNA games or downloadable games that can be purchased.
Microsoft have denied all rumours in the past but it was only a matter of time really. They most likely want the Zune to compete in the games space against the PSP, DS and especially the iPhone. With 3D games on the horizon I’m sure it’ll head to New Zealand – maybe even as soon as this year, but I won’t be making any bets!
Last week during our time checking out the Rockstar line-up we were able to see Rockstar’s upcoming music creation tool Beaterator. That’s right, a music creation tool, it is on a gaming device, but isn’t what most people would consider a game, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t going to be fun.
It’s that time of the week again, time for talking about games and stuff that might perhaps in some way relate to games in some way. Some things that get mentioned at some point include Red Dead Redemption, I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES!!!1, Shadow Complex and some other stuff that I probably cared about at the time but can’t recal from memory.
In this podcast we decide that we should just all get along, or, if we can’t get along we should just hope in a GaR’s van for some sweeties. We announce what we are doing for our ODST competition, talk about the sillynes of Shatner’s laywers, Sony’s motion controller and region locking.
Logitech today announced the Logitech® G27 Racing Wheel Specs. Designed to deliver the definitive sim racing experience for the PC and PLAYSTATION®3, the G27 features a powerful, dual-motor force feedback mechanism that smoothly and accurately delivers high-fidelity force effects to the hand-stitched leather wheel, so you can feel traction loss, weight shift, and the surface of the road. The helical gears deliver exceptionally quiet steering action, virtually eliminating noise and unwanted vibration.
Full press release after the break.
I am not sure if the ingestion of a Demon branded dietry supplement is a good idea, add to that a nice big drink of Big Cock and your just asking for trouble. Hey but every cloud has a sliver lining, I managed to google “Big Cock” without getting any unwanted images flashing in front of me.
This week we talk about all the screw ups that the big companies are making with pricing mistakes, and blocking minors from downloading wares. I defend my legacy of Zelda apathy, Wugga wonders what big annoucement will be nixed next, and Gino continues his voyeristic gaming with SplosionMan
