Actor and nerd icon Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker, Cocknocker) has done a tremendous job voicing The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series and Batman: Arkham Asylum. Sadly, his run as The Joker is coming to an end. He recently told IGN:
This will be my last, there’s no question about that. But it’s the last hurrah.
As a huge mark for Hamill (see what I did there?) and Kevin Conroy, I’m sad that the duo won’t be sharing the screen again. They are absolutely brilliant together. Like most … continued
Here’s a video of the PC version of Mafia II that shows off its use of Nvidia PhysX. The game will also be available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but the PC version offers a little something extra with PhysX. Here’s the skinny from 2K Games:
Mafia II will include NVIDIA PhysX technology in all platforms of the game. Particularly, the Windows PC version of Mafia II will feature a thorough integration of NVIDIA PhysX and 3D Vision technology into 2K Czech’s Illusion Engine. The integration of PhysX and
Double Helix and Square Enix kick off its Front Mission Evolved developer diary series in this video. The team talks about bringing the Front Mission universe to an action game. The previous installments were strategy games known for their tactical gameplay. This upcoming Front Mission game focuses on shooting action, but with strategic elements that stay true to the series.
Front Mission Evolved is set for a September 14, 2010 release for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC (in stereoscopic 3D). I loved the old FM games, but I’m … continued
Game Designer Paul Barnett (Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning by Mythic) was recently recently spotted purchasing a few iPads at an Apple Store.

However, an industry source told me that the reason for his purchase is that Mythic is working on an MMO for iPad. I contacted EA for an official “no comment” and was told that there’s nothing like that in the works.

This weekend is going to be tough for my “hardcore” games. I really want to play Alan Wake, but it will probably have to wait a few days. Most of my attention will be going to my HTC Evo 4G — it’s needy like that. I also need two more victories in Scrabble for Hasbro Family Game Night to get another Achievement. So yeah! That’s what I’ll be doing this weekend — enjoying my new phone and winning Scrabble games.
How about you? What’s on your weekend playlist?… continued
At today’s Google I/O 2010 keynote, the company showed off a beta of its upcoming Chrome Store. Set to launch some time this year, the store brings a variety of apps — including games — to consumers through a web browser and the power of HTML5. Think of it as a centralized place to find, download, buy, review, and discuss web apps (or an App Store rip-off, whichever you prefer).
On the gaming front, Plants vs. Zombies was shown…because we all need to buy a third version of that … continued
I want to give 1C a big hug for announcing Theater of War 2: Korea. I’m just thrilled that there’s a war game that’s not based on World War II. I’m so frickin’ sick of that war! If you added up all the gameplay hours spent in WWII, it would be more than 7,943 times longer than the actual war (by my completely unscientific estimate). Here’s the deal from press release:
