We first saw Just Dance on the Nintendo Wii, which was subsequently followed by Just Dance 2, also a Nintendo Wii exclusive game. Just Dance 3 however changes all of that. For the first time ever, a Just Dance game is no longer a Wii exclusive.
Ubisoft have released Just Dance 3 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii. The Wii version again makes use of the Wii remote and Kinect and PS Move make it possible on the Xbox 360 and PlayStaion 3. We will be reviewing the Xbox 360 Kinect version of the game, which I’ve been playing for the past few days.
Ubisoft have announced that Just Dance 3 will be a sponsor of Katy Perry’s upcoming UK tour, California Dreams. To highlight the sponsorship, the “Just Dance Your Way to Katy Perry” competition has been launched. Four winners will receive VIP tickets as well as have the chance to meet Katy Perry. In order to enter, you need to video yourself dancing to Firework by Katy Perry on Just Dance 2. Firework is a downloadable track on Just Dance 2 which is free to download from the Just Dance Store – available from the main menu of the game. Alternatively if you don’t own a Nintendo Wii or the game, you can also enter by using the “Just Dance 2 Free Katy Perry DLC” clip on YouTube. For full details on how to enter and submit your video, head on over to the Just Dance Facebook page.
Sega have announced that Sonic Generations will have a special edition and collectors edition of the game. The standard version of the game will retail for £32.99 while the special addition is available for £37.99 on Xbox 360 and £39.99 on PS3.
With the special edition, you get an exclusive Sonic theme as well as Casino Night Pinball Stage. The 360 version will also include a Super Sonic costume for your avatar.
The Collectors Edition however, features a collectible figurine which features both Classic and Modern Sonic, as well as a commemorative Gold Ring which is individually numbered.
Most of the Sonic games have been re-released other the years on various platforms, as part of compilations or stand alone downloads. On the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the original Sonic the hedgehog is available to download, as well as Sonic 2, Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles and the 2011 Sonic game, Sonic the hedgehog 4: Episode 1. One game that always seems to be missed from these releases has been Sonic CD. For all those who have been waiting for Sega to release Sonic CD on the PS3 or Xbox 360, there’s good news. Sega have announced that they plan to convert the Mega CD classic for release on Xbox Live, PSN, iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Windows Phone 7, Android and Windows PC Digital Download. At the moment, it doesn’t look like Sega will be bringing the game to the Wii.
On June 23rd 1991, we saw Sonic the Hedgehog make his debut on the Sega Master System. Since then a plethora of games have been released, including Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic & Knuckles, Sonic Adventures and more recently Sonic 4. Admittedly not all of the Sonic games have been great but, because of his very first game Sonic has a strong following. Last year we saw Sonic 4 Part 1 released which is one of best Sonic games to be released in quite a few years and this year we will see Sonic Generations. Sega will bring the old school Sonic from 1991 together with the modern day Sonic.
To kick start Sonic’s 20th anniversary, Sega have released a trailer for a new Sonic game. Sonic the hedgehog 4 Episode 2 should be released this year, the sequel to Sonic 4 Episode 1 which was released in October last year. However this trailer doesn’t look like Episode 2 of Sonic 4 but, rather a new game entirely. Speculation is that the game may see retro sonic go head to head with next gen sonic, or both of them working together. What are your thoughts? Check out the trailer below.
Heavy Rain won 3 awards last night. There were other winners but I am going to focus on this one as I have played it twice and currently started a third. Heavy Rain was written and directed by Quantic Dream’s chief executive, David De Gruttola.
Heavy Rain is an interactive game and you control the outcome. There are four main playable characters. This game is definitely a bite from film noir. Ethan Mars is one of the characters who is trying to find his son from a serial killer who uses extended rain storms to kill his victims.
The other three characters are:
I’m sure most of you will have heard of Foxy. For those who are regular players on the site, they recently held a competition for members to win a ride in a Foxy-licious Limo. For those who missed out though, whether you entered and didn’t win, didn’t enter in time or didn’t wager the minimum amount there’s still a chance to win a ride in the limo.
All you have to do is spot the Foxy limo in your area and submit the picture to Foxy. Also the driver may have cards with bonus codes on if you’re able to catch the limo while it’s parked up. The limos are currently touring in Scotland until March 25th and the South West will have limos from 23rd to 29th of March and the North East 28th March to 8th April. While other parts of the country will be toured in April and May.
Crysis 2 was scheduled for release on the 22nd of March, but that doesn’t mean anything to people who want a game and will release a game into the gaming world for us heathens to play ahead of time.
So a late developement build of Crysis 2 has gone up on certain sites, it includes the full game, including multiplayer. It also includes the DRM Solidshield master key files, which only handles the online activation. No one is sure where the leak came from, but it’s especially damaging because the game is near to being declared gold and shipping to retailers.
Well played Sony, you managed to put a root kit into your new firmeware update, that being if we actually updated our console. I myself will be staying on 3.41. It’s been reported that CFW disables your blu-ray play back.
Back to the rootkit though their own “rootkit” so to speak, which allows them, being Sony to execute remote code upon login. What code exactly? Well that can range from confirming system files, detecting custom firmware to searching for any installed homebrew that you may have put on. It’s rumoured that they will be able to “kill” your console but that has yet to be seen.
