We had a chance to take a close look at Spearhead Games? Tiny Brains (PC, PSN, PS4) at E3 2013.  It?s a physics-based co-operative action puzzler that feels like the evolution of the party game genre.  Games like Mario Party provide the charm and the mini-games, but Tiny Brains somehow manages to provide an enjoyable experience for a wide variety of demographics.

By Malathi Nayak SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp is betting on making sci-fi combat game "Titanfall" a hit big enough to boost sales of its Xbox One videogame device, helping it catch up in terms of sales with rival Sony Corp's PlayStation 4 console. Retailers are gearing up to get in on the buzz that has built up around the release of the game, one of the most anticipated new products for the latest version of the Xbox, by hosting over 6,000 midnight launch events worldwide. On sale from Tuesday exclusively for the Xbox One and personal computers, the $60 game allows players to go toe-to-toe as soldiers, or take control of giant robots in a war-torn urban setting. "We're making a big bet that 'Titanfall' is going to be a blockbuster launch for Xbox," Yusuf Mehdi, head of marketing and strategy for Microsoft's Xbox group, said in an email interview.

Oculus Rift: 5 Virtual Reality Uses Beyond Gaming

Date: Thu, 27. March 2014 10:28:55
Social media behemoth Facebook just paid $2 billion for Oculus VR, the virtual reality company that makes headsets and software hotly coveted by gamers. But Facebook creator and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is setting his sights far beyond immersive, first-person shooter video games. "After games, we're going to make Oculus a platform for many other experiences," Zuckerberg said in announcing the deal Tuesday afternoon (March 25). "Imagine enjoying a court side seat at a game, studying in a classroom of students and teachers all over the world or consulting with a doctor face-to-face ? just by putting on goggles in your home."

Measuring the Xbox One Against PCs With Titanfall

Date: Sun, 16. March 2014 05:20:00
An anonymous reader writes "Earlier this week, Respawn Entertainment launched Titanfall, a futuristic first-person shooter with mechs that has been held up as the poster child for the Xbox One. The Digital Foundry blog took the opportunity to compare how the game plays on the Xbox One to its performance on a well-appointed PC. Naturally, the PC version outperforms, but the compromises are bigger than you'd expect for a newly-released console. For example, it runs at an odd resolution (1408x792), the frame rate 'clearly isn't anywhere near locked' to 60fps, and there's some unavoidable screen tear. Reviews for the game are generally positive — RPS says most of the individual systems in Titanfall are fun, but the forced multiplayer interaction is offputting. Giant Bomb puts it more succinctly: 'Titanfall is a very specific game built for a specific type of person.' Side note: the game has a 48GB install footprint on PCs, owing largely to 35GB of uncompressed audio." Read more of this story at Slashdot.

Nintendo revises earnings down on weak Wii U, 3DS sales

Date: Fri, 17. January 2014 09:21:00
Citing disappointing holiday sales of its Wii U and 3DS game devices, Nintendo cut its earnings forecast for its fiscal year ending in March to a net loss. The video-game giant warned on Friday of a net loss of 25 billion (US$240 million) for the year, instead of the 55 billion net profit it had forecast last April. The company posted a 7.1 billion net profit for its 2013 fiscal year. Nintendo blamed the let-down on weak sales of high-margin games during the year-end period, which it in turn attributed to slower-than-expected hardware sales.
