Duke Nukem Forever system requirements revealed, doesn't require bubblegum

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: May 4, 2011 11:14 am

Duke Nukem Forever is not far from release and now that were close to the end of the rainbow, some system requirement specs have been released from none other than NVIDIA. I'm guessing because the game is most likely run on a graphics engine that is relatively old, the requirements are pretty slack, check them out for yourself:

Telstra to have the Samsung Galaxy S II by the end of the month?

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Mobile Devices | Posted: May 4, 2011 7:40 am

Samsung's Galaxy S II is rumored to be hitting Telstra this month and by the leaks, seems to have an outright price of $999. Of course it should be cheaper for someone going on a plan, the news of it coming out is exciting enough.

DC Universe MMO Makes Up For SOE Issues

By: Trak Lord | More News: Gaming | Posted: May 4, 2011 6:00 am

AS we all know, Sony has had a tough few weeks. Whether it's their PlayStation Network being attacked by a hacker and subsequently shut down, or essentially shutting down their Sony Online Entertainment network for fear that there had been an intrusion- this is starting to have some pretty serious ramifications, for instance the numerous DC Universe MMO users currently unable to access their beloved game.

 

dc_universe_mmo_makes_up_for_soe_issues_057

 

Which is why Sony is giving all DCU players some cool Batman SWAG. The above Batman-inspired mask (players use custom created characters as opposed to the actual characters, hence the "inspired") comes in both male and female versions, the coolest headgear that, well, everyone will be wearing when the SOE is back online.

 

Speaking of which, Sony is offering current subscribers an automatic 30-day credit for their troubles, and on top of all of that, one free day for every day that the DC Universe Online was down and out.

 

Please bear with us as the complexities of the subscription server dictate how and when this will be available along with pertinent details. We will be releasing more information this week. Thanks again for your patience!

 

No, Sony. Thank you.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 being worked on, $200m to make

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: May 4, 2011 5:42 am

We all knew this was coming but waiting for 100-percent confirmation is hard and now we're seeing a leak from a voice actor for the current two Modern Warfare titles, Craig Fairbrass. He did an interview with a UK radio station talkSPORT. Craig does the voice of Ghost and Gaz and has let slip that he's currently working on a big game that is costing $200 million to make.

That rounds it down to, well, just one title. Craig said during his interview:

 

I did Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as Gaz and then I did Ghost in Modern Warfare 2, which has become one of the most iconic figures in the history of computer games, which is great. And I've just been out in LA doing something that's going to be announced in May...I've just been out there doing some bits and pieces and one of it's to do with...I can't say too much.

Augmented Reality Event To Be Navigated By metaio & junaio

By: Trak Lord | More News: Augmented Reality | Posted: May 4, 2011 2:48 am

Munich / San Francisco-based augmented reality solutions firm metaio have developed a nifty feature for attendees of this year's Augmented Reality Event

in Santa Clara, CA, May 17-18. Using their mobile augmented reality browser junaio to navigate the entire conference.

 

augmented_reality_event_to_be_navigated_by_metaio_junaio_056

 

Attendees can download the junaio browser on their Android or iPhone and launch the experience from specifically and strategically placed Latitude, Longitude and Altitude (LLA) markers that will synchronize the indoor AR experience. Generally, AR navigation depends on GPS and geo-locational data to function, but GPS isn't yet precise enough to facilitate indoor navigation (things are just too close together). Metaio's technology however allows for a fairly seamless indoor directions and information (pending that you launch the application correctly).

 

The junaio "channel" will be providing up-to-date information regarding the various sessions and speakers, as well as giving remote information about sponsors and organizations on the expo floor. Isn't AR neat?
