More Intel On An Elusive Beta
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 28th of March 2008 - 04:53 PM ]
Metal Gear Saga Vol. 2 / Online Beta disc I saw this on the IGN boards and thought it would be good to pass on to the rest of Pwned. A user there had just received their Metal Gear Pre-order disc and posted all about what it comes with. I'll save you the time of describing it here and just list it below, but the main tidbit that I know people have wanted to know is about the Beta; the open beta for MGS Online to be more exact. We all know that the disk has a code and such that you will need to input to get the download, but the dates of the beta and when it will be available is new info. Apparently, you will be able to DL the Beta on the 17th of April, but you won't actually be able to do anything with it until the 21st of April. Read More…

by Alyssa Porter [ Friday, 28th of March 2008 - 05:20 AM ]
We all know female gamers exist, especially with the recent rise of female voices in the gaming community, but many people I know claim they have never played a game with a female. I say poppycock; they just do not know how to spot a female in game. Here are a couple of ways to possibly sight a female playing.1. The most obvious – Their VoiceOf course the high pitched voice on the other side of your headset that will not shut up is annoying you, so you might immediately think its an immature pre-pubecent boy, but do not be so hasty to make such a conclusion.

Harvard violent games study leaves out girls
by Trina [ Thursday, 27th of March 2008 - 10:24 PM ]
Suzanne Freyjadis-Chuberka has written an excellent post over at DollyMix about a new book called, Grand Theft Childhood: The Surprising Truth about Violent Video Games and What Parents Can do. The book is a study about the effect of video games on young and impressionable teenagers. The study actually is fair in that it addresses why violent video game are not all inherently bad and won't turn your child into a raving mass-muderer. But the search is still on because the study felt it was okay to leave out girls in their research because they didn't feel they could find any. Suzzanne writes that, "In an interview the lead researcher, Prof. Read More…

by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 27th of March 2008 - 05:16 PM ]
Def Leppard Songs to Appear in Guitar Hero 4 So even with the new Aerosmith version of the game coming out soon, they are already talking the next iteration and what will be on Guitar Hero 4. As I'm sure you guessed by now, Def Leppard is one of the bands they are going to be placing on the next one. Or at least as the rumor states. Although, I really don't see this staying rumor too long since rumors now a days are getting debunked pretty fast or confirmed pretty fast now-a-days. Read More…

Enjoy Gaming In 3D
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 27th of March 2008 - 03:57 PM ]
Wii Head Tracking powers new 3D game Not the most creative of titles, but, well...whatever. A long while back, before we had the Narticle section, I posted a bunch of things about the Wii and PS-Eye head tracking systems that people are working on. They were just basic tracking things that would move just some dots or basic targets on the screen depending on where your head is. The Wii had a set of glasses for this. They looked very clunky and a lot like the old VR goggles of yore. Read More…
