News: Activision Talking To Hasbro About More Transformers Games

Activision Talking To Hasbro About More Transformers Games

Transformers: War For Cybertron was a really good game

Really good. It proves there's a market for good quality Transformers content that isn't tied into dodgy live-action movies. That doesn't mean every game has to be a shooter however. Speaking at BotCon, High Moon Studio's Matt Tieger and Hasbro's Aaron Archer took part in a little Q&A session with fans. One of the questions asked pointed to..

.. We're in heaven — DJ Hero 2 has been officially announced and now, via Joystiq, we've got some early details on the game's set-list. Activision's outrageously expensive E3 party - which featured performances from Usher, NERD, Chris Cornell, Tool's Maynard Keenan and Jane's Addiction - also featured plenty of DJ Hero 2, with the lists of artists we've placed after the jump all due to make an..

E3 2010: Sorry PlayStation 3 Owners, Microsoft's Locked Down Call Of Duty DLC

Sorry PlayStation 3 Owners, Microsoft's Locked Down Call Of Duty DLC

Do you know what's totally not a big announcement? Timed exclusive DLC

In fact, it's one of my personal pet-hates in this video game industry. A timed exclusive — for DLC. Really? Does that have any factor in purchasing intent. When it comes to Call Of Duty, the answer is, probably, yes. So it was with a wry smile Microsoft announced they have locked down timed exclusivity for the Call Of Duty..

Leaked DJ Hero 2 Mixes Sound Kind Of Amazing

Oooooooh man, DJ Hero 2 is a real product, and it sounds kind of amazing

Like literally sounds amazing. Leaked mixes include a Deadmau5 reimagining of Lady GaGa's "Just Dance" and some remixed Pussycat Dolls. It also looks like Activision are going for more of a party feel with DJ Hero 2, offering karaoke lyrics at the top of the screen. But, as you know, DJ Hero is really all about the..

Modern Warfare 2 "Resurgence Package" DLC Hits The PlayStation 3 On July 6th

Activision's announced that Modern Warfare 2's second map-pack will hit the PlayStation Store on July 6th (or July 7th for those of you in Europe)

The pack's been available on the XBOX 360 for a week or so now, but was obviously delayed on the PlayStation 3 due to Microsoft's timed-exclusivity dollars. Still, July 6th is only a few weeks away. The pack will set you back a whopping $15, which will..

Psst... Neversoft's Working On A New Shooter

A job listing for a senior level designer at Neversoft has revealed that the Guitar Hero studio is working on a new shooter

You want more details? You can't have them because there aren't any. Speculation hints at a long overdue sequel to GuN, but the Call Of Duty name has also been tossed around. Y'know, if Red Dead Redemption hadn't come out last month we'd still be pining for a sequel to last..

DJ Hero 2 Is Finally Official, Launching In October! We Do Dodgy Dance To Celebrate!

Sorry, excuse us a moment while we run outside and dance to the hits of Madonna - DJ Hero 2 is finally official

The over-priced (but totally awesome) mix 'em up was overshadowed by a stonking price-tag when it launched last year, but with the peripheral already in a number of homes, we're looking forward to simply picking up DJ Hero 2 on disc. We want more tracks, y'see. And we want a little less..

Want To Spend More Money On Plastic? Check Out These New Guitar Hero Guitars!

Call Of Duty: Black Ops' Main Campaign Will Not Be Playable In Co-Op

Call Of Duty: Black Ops' campaign will not be playable in co-op according to Treyarch's Mark Lamia

He explained that "single-player is the epic, cinematic, seat-of-your-pants thrill ride that you star in," while the game will offer seperate, more focused co-op modes for up to four players. It's sounding more like Black Ops' co-op mode will be like Modern Warfare 2's Spec-Ops, but Lamia..

Transformers: War For Cybertron GameStop Commercial Tugs On The Heartstrings

This Transformers: War For Cybertron commercial says a lot about the game

Firstly, Soundwave is actually a boom-box. Score one to developers High Moon. Secondly, Starscream is a whiny annoying idiot. Score two to developers High Moon. And finally - the ad features Stan Bush's "The Touch". Score three to developers High Moon. Everytime we hear that song we're transported to a dodgy VHS..

Racing Games... Too Many Racing Games - "Twiggy" The Push Square Opinionator

Burnout Paradise predates this website

It was released in January 2008, at a time when I didn't have to play every game that released. I picked it up sometime in September. Being a fan of arcade racers, it still bemuses me that I didn't buy it earlier, and I honestly can't for the life of me recall why. But I didn't - I picked it up late. At the time trophies were new, and Criterion had pledged a..
