The Mad Bad Ad Show is a game show airing in the UK, and it involves people buzzing in. Believe it or not, the show has their contestants using Wiimotes as buzzers. This is never actually brought up as a point, but you can clearly see it’s a Wiimote! Thanks to The Stickman for the heads up!
There’s no way FIFA Street could have merely been an additional mode in FIFA Soccer 12. The latter takes to the conventional styles of soccer, where setting up plays and well-timed crosses are the keys to victory. The former focuses on “the beautiful game,” where one player juggles a ball around with blinding grace, tricking an opponent into moving one direction while taking the ball in the other.
FIFA Street utilizes the Player Impact Engine found in FIFA 12, which relies more heavily on the physics of players and the ball instead of using only animations. It’s a good starting point for a game that, compared to other FIFA titles, spotlights soccer tricks more than ever. The end result, however, turns into a “FIFA lite” of sorts, with shoddy action frighteningly reminiscent of the problematic FIFA 12 demo.
Vanity is the subject of the next major update coming to Skyrim, which introduces new kill move animations for melee combat and some snazzy kill cams for ranged weapons and magic spells. If they look familiar in the video above, it’s because you already saw them during Todd Howard’s DICE 2012 keynote.
Of course, that’s not the entirety of the update. Smithing skill boosts now factor into forged item value, there’s a “better transition” when going underwater, and a variety of bugs and glitches are addressed. The full patch notes are over on the Bethesda Blog.
If you’re a PC player, you can play a beta version of the 1.5 update on Steam right now. All you have to do is go into your settings tab and opt in through the client. The update will be available for Xbox 360 and PS3 players “soon.”
Kill with greater variety and look good doing it in Skyrim’s 1.5 update originally appeared on Joystiq on Thu, 15 Mar 2012 20:40:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition hasn’t even been an official thing for 24 hours, and yet its sequel is already in the plan, according to the above tweet from Beamdog’s creative director Trent Oster. Beyond the fact that it exists, precise information regarding Baldur’s Gate 2: Enhanced Edition is even slimmer than what we’ve got on Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition.
What we do know, however, is that both games will also include their respective expansion packs: Tales of the Sword Coast for Baldur’s Gate and Throne of Bhaal for Baldur’s Gate 2. The team at Overhaul Games is correcting issues with Baldur’s Gate‘s multiplayer, and there may even be a chance that your original save file could still work.
