Daily Gaming Tidbits 01/11/10

  • Crayon Physics is a small indie PC title that really deserves your attention. It’s a brilliant puzzler that will tax your brain, regardless of the kindergarten-esq visuals the crayons provide. The good folks at Kloonigames are celebrating the title’s 1st birthday by doing a “pay what you want” sale. That’s right, just head over here & pay any amount you feel is appropriate using PayPal. You can undercut them & only pay a penny, but seriously, this one is worth much more than that (regular price is $19.95). The sale is ongoing until Jan 15th, so you only have a few days to take advantage of this one…
  • The folks over at Joystick Division confirmed with Microsoft that the retro/classic XBLA games you’ve picked up over the years will NOT be compatible with the new Game Room service launching this Spring (March??). *sigh* Once again, I AM NOT repurchasing the classics. I have them already & don’t play them enough as it is to warrant the additional cost…
  • The hotly anticipated Playstation 3 exclusive Heavy Rain now has a release date. It’ll grace your screens beginning Feb 23rd…
  • The latest trailer for Metro 2033 hit the other day, which I’ve embedded for you below. The more I see of this one, the more excited I get…
  • The guys at engadget are reporting that Razor, best know for their line of performance PC mice, is now jumping into the console accessory realm beginning with an Xbox 360 controller. My first thought when I saw it was “beefy” (reminds me of the old ‘Duke’ controller from the original Xbox)…

  • Irrational Games, who became 2K Boston when they were purchased by Take-Two a couple of years ago, has now become Irrational Games again. They even have a countdown website counting down to…um…I don’t know. But I’m sure it’s going to be something cool. These are the guys behind games like BioShock & System Shock 2
  • For those that missed it, I reviewed my first iPhone/iTouch game over the weekend. You can check it out here
  • Microsoft’s upcoming camera control system, Project Natal, is said to use about 10% – 15% of the system’s CPU. What does that mean? Well, for one thing, the odds are strongly against any existing games being patched to use the device. Plus, any future high end games that demand a lot out of the CPU may not be able to use it…
  • Sony officially announced their unified PSN initiative at CES 2010. Basically, they want the PSN to go cross platform, similar to Microsoft’s LIVE Anywhere program. They plan to let you start using your PSN login info on multiple platforms (Playstation 3, net enabled BluRay devices, PC, etc…) beginning next month. In relation to that, Sony has also created a new studio called Sony Network Entertainment to create content for the now unified network. Kaz Hirai himself will head up the studio…
  • Fans of FIFA 10 will be happy to hear the title is getting a roster update sometime after the end of Jan…
