We are exactly one week away from when Grand Theft Auto V is released. If you’re a hard-core fan of the series, you’ve been doing everything to find all the bit of information you can, because Rockstar Games generally doesn’t release a heck of a lot of it. That’s the way they roll.
Today, a guide, which has the entire map, was leaked on Reddit, which was found by neoGAF user named Pandemic. After the jump, check it out. And oh, SPOILER ALERT!(more…)
Wondering what the Xbox One could have looked like before the final concept was introduced to the world back in May? No? Well too bad, I’m showing you anyways.
As with any hardware manufacture — including Apple, Sony and Nintendo — Microsoft went through vigorous process of determining what the outside of the Xbox One would look like. A team of about 30 people started the undertaking by sketching out concepts. (more…)
Sony is teasing a picture on their PlayStation Facebook and Twitter feeds. The picture has the words “When words collide,” written above what appears like a eclipse image.
There’s possible explanation of the teaser poster, and this theory has to do with the release date of the PS4. Take notice of the image, it kinda reflects a solar eclipse. On November 4, 2013, a the the planet will have the sky anomaly, including portions of the United States. (more…)
Stylinonline has a Super Mario hoodie that you’re either going to love or hate. The back of the hoodie sweatshirt, as you can tell, is the start screen of the old original Nintendo game Super Mario Bros..The front of the hoodie is a little bit more subtle — it has a small clipping of the title screen, along with the tiny embedded controller patch, and lastly the box cover art on the left chest of the jersey
The designer of this geek hoodie is Torrel, who only produced a limited supply of 1000, with each sleeve having authenticity sewn, including what number the sweatshirt is.
The price of the hoodie is rather expensive, and will set you back about $100, but it is available to purchase right now.
This hoodie is definitely cool, but I’m not entirely sure I could wear it everywhere. I think it would be mostly for gaming gatherings like conventions, but I’m not sure if I would wear it on a night in the town. It’s not that I’m against showing off my geekyness, it’s just the sweatshirt is a little too vibrate, and while wearing it, I think I would be giving off the impression that I want to be recognized everywhere I go.
After the break, check out more images of the hoodie.
Yesterday, we were first to report that Microsoft was going release a controller for the Xbox 360 that had its d-pad redesign. We also wrote that Microsoft would officially announce the newly revamped device and up top is a video with the actual redesign.
Like we said, the d-pad can be popped-up by routing it 90 degrees, giving the player the feel of a four-way directional pad, instead of eight. The controller is supposed to gear towards the fighting fan, who in the past, complained about the original Xbox 360 control pad and some even refused to buy one for the system.
One thing we didn’t know was the price, but now we do. According to Microsoft, the controller is going to cost $65 when it’s released on November 9th, which is $15 more than the original wireless one.
After the jump, watch Major Nelson fool around with the controller and not a sexual way, either!
The cake might have been a lie, but these screens for Portal 2 are certainly real. Valve Software has released five new screens for Portal 2, thanks to Gamecom going on right now in Germany. While judging these screens, some kind of gooey substance is flowing through some sort of industrial sewer, what exactly that is, remains to be seen; however one things for sure, it should play a big part in the sequel.
As we already know, the graphics should be a step up from the original, especially sense it’s being shipped as a single game, as opposed to the first one which was shipped with various other titles as a compilation package. Instead of Valve looking at it as a ‘bonus’ title, they’ve decided to use a lot more resources, which in-turn should make the game feel like a true sequel, and everything from the graphics to the production should feel updated.
Portal 2 should be out early next year for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. After the jump, check out the rest of the screens.
First I want to write that this came out in November, so if you see it and scream at me because it’s ‘old,’ I don’t care. I’ve talked to several people who use Gmail, many of them in the videogame industry, and they have yet to see this. So I decided to share it with all of you.
If you log into your Gmail account and select the themes tab, and find the ‘High Score’ theme. If you select it, your email will now look like a 8-bit game from the past. What’s even cooler is when it’s the daytime, the top part will show a sun; however, once night fills the actual sky, a moon along with stars will cover your Gmail. But that’s not all.
If you check out the left hand corner where the chat icon is, you’ll notice that it looks like an arcade cabinet. If you choose to chat with someone, a cabinet will appear on the right side, along with a quick animation of a retro-like game on the screen. As you can tell, I’m telling Peter from /film how I feel about him. Also, if you check out the little color icons that let you know if people are online, busy, or offline, now have a Space Invaders look to them.
Overall, I love the look and have officially switched my theme… for good.
Gregor Collienne is a photographer from Germany. However, he doesn’t take pictures that catches his eye, or tries to capture the perfect setting to inspire people. Instead, for the most part, he takes humorous snap shots of people doing an everyday activity and pairs them up with another group, who are doing something completely different. When you check out his work, you not only chuckle, but they make you think — it almost feels like an optical illusion.
Up top is one picture of his work. While it’s unlike a lot of his photos — it made me laugh nonetheless. I’m assuming the picture is asking all of us, what if we could control our girlfriends or all women for that matter, with a single PlayStation controller? Like, how awesome would that be? No more would we hear the excuse: “I have a headache.” Can some smart scientist make this happen? Please!

Yikes! EB Games (Gamestop) has leaked photos of Bungie‘s upcoming game Halo: Reach for the Xbox 360. The official website to the retailer posted the pictures, which I have included after the break; however, some have already seen these exact same screens because of the latest issue of Game Informer. The only problem, most people have yet to get their hands on this month’s issue. So this was a major screwup by EB.
The screenshots really showoff the direction Bungie is headed with their final chapter of the famed first-person shooter. Reach is expected to take a much grittier/darker take when compared to the previous installments, and these pictures prove those expectations some have.
While Halo was far from being a non-serious action title, these screens make the game look like Bungie is going after a much more realistic approach and the studio is definitely upping the graphics department. And for the first time, Halo will look like it belongs on this generation.
Again, after the jump, check out all the screens. (more…)
