Category: General on Tuesday May 27, 2008

The silent StrmnNrmn Daedalus project and which was issued in R14 beta.

Newcomers should know Daedalus emulates the Nintendo 64 console; it’s in the beta stages of development and many roms aren’t playable. Although, you should still give it a shot — Daedalus deserves it.

Longtime readers — R14 exhibits some improvement, but is said to be slightly buggier. You win some you lose some.

Daedalus R14 changes:

A bit of ME support
A tad faster
A bit buggier.
New Icons etc
Known issues:

Debug menus popup - these are bypass-able by pressing the SQUARE button and shouldn’t be very often.

TPM Encryption Chip - hope against piracy? - by garethlye
Category: General on Sunday May 25, 2008


Will this finally be the unbeatable solution to the rampant problem of gaming piracy? According to Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari, a certain TPM chip will eventually make piracy a thing of the past. What exactly is this TPM chip? Apparently, it is a stealth encryption chip that is currently being built into the latest motherboards. Bushnell further explained:

What that says is that in the games business we will be able to encrypt with an absolutely verifiable private key in the encryption world - which is uncrackable by people on the internet and by giving away passwords - which will allow for a huge market to develop in some of the areas where piracy has been a real problem.

However, this doesn't mean that it will also apply with video and music files, which the Atari founder deemed unstoppable. That makes sense, since some enterprising people resort to capturing movies using video cameras, while they are being played in theatres. Now, how can you apply encryption on that?

Gaming, of course, is another story. "Games are a different thing, because games are so integrated with the code," Bushnell said. How will this TPM chip affect regions where software piracy reins supreme? We will have to wait and see...

Activision and Vivendi leaving ESA, EA still holding trust - by garethlye
Category: General on Tuesday May 20, 2008

Jeff Brown, the vice president of Electronic Arts, has criticized Activision and Vivendi's decision to leave the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), as well as the companies' choice to withdraw from E3.

According to Brown, Activision and Vivendi's decision to leave the ESA "reflects an unfortunate lack of leadership." He further added that this act isn't a very responsible thing to do given their status in the gaming industry:

They're a big company and we feel that when you're a big company you've got a responsibility to consumers to work on policy issues which are very, very important to consumers. And the best way to do that is with an industry consensus. That's the way it's been done with the ESA in the US, and with ELSPA in the UK.

He further added that the system the ESA is using may not be perfect as there are still disagreements within the circle of developers who are still a part of it. However, he believes that it does work:

There's always tensions inside these organisations, but for the most part it works. So it was sad to see them step away from that responsibility. We hope that others don't do that, but I think that the onus is on the ESA to prove that membership in it is good for the company and good for consumers. And I think we're going to see the ESA redouble its efforts to prove that.

Finally, Brown reaffirmed their commitment to the ESA and reassured everyone that this year's E3 will still be successful. To end, here's what he had to say about the issues in question:

EA is 100 per cent committed. There's Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, THQ, Disney, a bunch of others – and I assume all the others are still locked into it.


For that matter, Activision Vivendi is going to be doing an event of some description in Los Angeles at the same time, so there's still critical mass. Everyone's going to be in Los Angeles this summer and it's hard to imagine it isn't going to be a successful event.

Weekly Game Review: Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops - by garethlye
Category: General on Thursday May 15, 2008

This review was suppose to be last weeks one but ill post it now..:D

Big Boss returns to battle in this all-new MGS action game for the PSP system. Set in 1970, the game acts as a missing link in the ongoing Metal Gear Solid narrative, as players learn more about returning characters such as Para-Medic, Major Zero and Sigint and also witness Big Boss' greatest tragedy -- one that sets into motion the events of later games in the series' timeline. Portable Ops introduces a new team building mechanic that brings additional depth and gameplay variety to the series -- players can now capture and recruit characters and train them to be part of their army to help Snake on his mission! The game also features fully-voiced cut scenes with original artwork by acclaimed visualist Ashley Wood.
In addition to a full-fledged single player mode set after the events of MGS3: Snake Eater, the game's multiplayer modes let players take their custom squad online to do battle across new levels, featuring a unique "White Flag" mechanic that will allow players to fight to the death (with your valuable squad on the line if you lose) or surrender to compete again.

Weekly Game Review: Gundam Seed Rengokou Vs Z.A.F.T - by garethlye
Category: General on Thursday May 15, 2008

Aside from Gundam games from the series creator Bandai, our friends at Capcom have over the last few years created various Gundam arcade games. This being one of them. The game looks set to be your usual robot battlefest , which is fine by me, having been a lover of giant fighting robots since Virtual-on. There will be a mission mode, where you no doubt get to prance around in your shiny 'bot mashing up those bad guys good and proper. There's also the arcade mode, where you get to straight up fight against the CPU or with 3 friends. If you have 3 Gundam crazy friends that is. This game we probably won't be seeing a release of over here, so it's off to your local neighborhood import merchant. Gundam Seed: Rengou vs. Z.A.F.T. Portable is out early April in Japan.

Homebrew of the week: [game] Kitten Cannon - by garethlye
Category: General on Wednesday May 14, 2008

"Kitten Cannon" is orginally by Dan Fleming but has been ported by SG57.
Kitten Cannon is very simple to play and maybe harder to watch if you're the squeamish type

Just aim the cannon using the up/down directional pad buttons or analog stick and use [X] to fire. The red bar on the cannon indicates the power of your shot. Leave the rest to gravity and the objects that litter the ground. Press [START] to pause and SELECT while paused to return to the main menu.

Take screenshots with the TRIANGLE button - saved in "Kitten Cannon/Screenshots/'. Highscores are now automatically saved in the Screenshots folder.
Download coming soon!
