  1. Urgent Fury CIO Shane Bell stops by for a very “loosey goosey” episode of Urgent Frequency. An episode that features the usual Urgent Fury SITREP, a complete PAX East 2011 Preview, a surprise guest, and Charlie Sheen. WINNING! Duh! Score: 0 (0 votes cast) Urgent Fury Command: More...
  2. After winning scores of awards, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is considered by many to be the best game to come out in 2009. While it’s initially great news, it only puts incredible pressure on Naughty Dog to somehow surpass their previous work. How are they holding up? Surprising everyone with an announcement late last year, fans have been scraping at any information for the next installment of Nathan Drake and his partners in crime. Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception will take place all over the world and focus on the desert, be playable in stereoscopic 3D, follow the tracks of Lawrence of Arabia, and…that’s about it. Not many other concrete details have been given out at this point, leaving every scraping for news at every opportunity. Fortunately for us, in a closed-door, invitation-only room at the PlayStation Lounge in San Francisco, that time had come. While Naughty Dog has previously talked about the revamped melee combat, expertly crafted and dynamic environments, and film-quality motion capture technology, this particular event was designed to show two things. First, bits and pieces of the story are finally being flushed out. Enter Katherine Marlowe. British noblewoman looking to reclaim, what she believes, what is rightfully hers. But why would she be going after Drake, and what is her previous relationship with Sully? The first bits of their relationship has been divulged, only to be put together more and more over the coming year. As you can see in the video Marlowe has a certain affinity for Drake’s ring, which fans of the original Uncharted will recognize from the beginning of the first game. The man who originally had it, Sir Francis Drake, was once in the employ of the aristocratic Marlowe family. According to Katherine’s ill-formed logic, Sir Francis had stolen something from the family, be it the ring, money, information, or some other form of value, and the woman is now only to reclaimed what was rightfully hers in the first place. Wonderful change of pace for the game to introduce a woman, not only an aged one, as the main antagonist for the game. No longer will the enemy be other treasure seekers or deranged warmongers, but the upper-crust of the highest society. It adds more character to her, as well as her subordinates. While the underlings still have military experience, they are now highly trained professionals working for a beautiful sum. Ex special forces soldiers motivated by money, as opposed to some misguided ideal to only be betrayed by their commanding officer. After this trailer, one can only wonder who else will be added to such a growing cast of characters? But that wasn’t the only things shown off at this special meeting. Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells was on the*premises*to so how his team’s work. An extended version of the Chateau demo was shown, similar to the Jimmy Fallon footage shown live on his show, except from before the fire started, and in 3D. While there were several 3D skeptics in the room, all hesitant about one of their favorite franchises being tacked on with a gimmick, even stalwart opponents were wowed by the technology. Some of the best uses of 3D in gaming don’t necessarily pop out, but create a sense of depth and perspective within the game world. The demo started with Drake and Sully meandering around the home, sneaking around the guards. Uncharted has had the unique problem of making the game worlds a little too beautiful, making some of the platforming difficult. The 3D now aids in gauging such tasks, making maneuvering much more manageable. Also during the actual fire, the environment seems to come alive with 3D turned on. The smoldering embers from across the entire stage were surprisingly beautiful, being placed either in front of Drake and the action, or off in the distance. Uncharted 3 has the unfortunate predicament of having the highest expectations of any game to come out in recent history. As long as Naughty Dog keeps the same level of*discipline*that created their last two games, Drake’s Deception is surely going to be a hit. Multiplayer wasn’t shown at this event, but they may be saving that just for E3 later this year. Score: 0 (0 votes cast) Urgent Fury Command: More...

  4. Alright, it’s time to do a little pre-audition prep work: Let’s see your best look of complete, abject despair. Good, good! Now, slump your shoulders and shuffle across the room, in a manner that just says, “Hey, my whole city just got destroyed by unswervingly violent alien aggressors.” That’s perfect! You might just have a chance to win Sony and Insomniac’s “Get In The Game With Resistance 3” contest — the winner of which will be cast as a survivor in the upcoming, Chimeric shooter. All you have to do is send in an image of you in “the middle of a Resistance-style battle,” or looking as survivor-y as possible, which we assume involves looking very, very dirty and sad. If your submission is picked, you’ll get a private tour of Insomniac Games, where your face will be scanned and stuck onto an in-game character.

  6. A publicity stunt intended to advertise upcoming shooter Homefront ended up backfiring this week when 10,000 red balloons, released by publisher THQ into the San Francisco skies, wound up in the waters of the Bay itself, angering local environmentalists. Scheduled for release on March 15, Homefront takes place in 2027, and sees a belligerent and heavily armed North Korean army invades the mainland of the United States. The balloons were released in a mock protest against the game’s fictional North Korean regime, and coincided with this week’s Game Developers Conference taking place in downtown San Francisco. But what goes up, must come down — and thanks to San Francisco’s notoriously dreary weather, it didn’t take long for the thousands of balloons, weighed down by windy, rainy conditions, to wind up touching down in the Bay. Pictures of balloon-covered waters flooded the Internet, and local residents took to Facebook to express their outrage. The balloons carried the name of retailer Gamestop, but in a statement the retailer denied responsibility, saying it had no prior knowledge of the stunt and pointing the finger at publisher THQ instead. And THQ? In a statement, the publisher’s vice-president of corporate communications, Julia MacMedan assured concerned San Franciscans that the balloons wouldn’t be troubling them for long. “The balloons that were released are completely biodegradable,” she told Cnet. “They start the process of biodegrading as soon as they’re blown up with the helium. There should not be any environmental concerns.” Regardless, the publisher has hired a clean-up crew to deal with the mess. Local environmentalists weren’t impressed, pointing out that, biodegradable or not, the latex balloons could still pose a threat to wildlife while they undergo the decomposition process — and Cnet further observes the culprits could face prosecution under anti-littering laws.

  7. We’re close now to the release of SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy Seals, and to keep the excitement up, developer Zipper Interactive has finally revealed its final multiplayer mode: Bomb Squad. At this year’s Game Developers Conference here in San Francisco, we got the chance to go hands-on for a few rounds of this explosive new mode. In Bomb Squad there are two teams: those who have the bombs and those who want to diffuse them. If you’re the team with the bombs, then it’s your job to keep all three of them primed and ready to blow. However, if you’re the opposing team, then you have to deactivate these explosives before the timer runs out. To do this, one lucky member of the bomb diffusion team will be chosen to play as the bomb technician. Decked out in the bulky explosive ordnance disposal suit, the bomb technician is the only character who can diffuse the bombs. He is also a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield, armed with the only automatic shotgun in the game, as well as a handheld grenade launcher. During our time with Bomb Squad we weren’t lucky enough to land the coveted position of bomb technician. However, we were still on the bomb diffusion team, so it was our duty to protect the explosives specialist at all costs. In practice, this mode didn’t feel much different from a typical Deathmatch mode. When the bomb technician isn’t busy diffusing a bomb, which leaves him both out in the open and highly vulnerable, he is powerful enough to take care of himself. We just went about killing enemies as usual until he would call out for us to cover him while he performed his duty. Otherwise, all we had to do was hunt down enemy troops and drop them before they dropped us. At the start of a round it felt like the bomb diffusion team had a definite advantage. The enemy forces would split up in an effort to cover all three of their bomb sites while our team focused its efforts on a single target. And while we quickly disabled the first two bombs, the tables turned when we got down to the final one. Now the enemy knew exactly where we were going to strike. What followed was a frenzy of bullets and death as our two sides crashed and broke against each other over the longest three-minute countdown of our lives. And just like in our previous cooperative session, the action was fast and frantic. Granted, we weren’t playing on the game’s more punishing Classic setting, where some of the modern perks, such as regenerating health and respawning, are removed. Whatever your preference, you can find SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs on the PlayStation on April 19. Thanks to the guys at Gamespot.com for this look into the newly announced multiplayer mode Bomb Squad.

  8. Warner’s released a new trailer for Mortal Kombat’s Challenge Tower, *which gives you a look at the mode’s 300 levels. The game mode will give players the ability to test out the engine’s capabilities in various brutal and sometimes hilarious ways. “The Challenge Tower is 300 missions where we really wanted to challenge the player’s mastery of different mechanics in the game, while also challenging their dedication to sticking with it,†says senior designer Mike Birkhead One of the levels is a fight between Mileena and Scorpion which is a result of the masked guy refusing to accept a teddy bear that the “cute†girl made for him. The game recently got banned in Australia but Warner’s decided to appeal against it. A PS Plus exclusive PS3 demo will be hitting PSN next week.

  12. Competitive multiplayer has always been the core of the SOCOM franchise, and SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs takes it further than ever before with modes and options that both new recruits and veterans alike will enjoy. We've previously covered three of our four competitive modes -- Suppression, Last Defense and Uplink -- and today we're excited to unveil our fourth mode, Bomb Squad. In Bomb Squad, Insurgents have planted a number of bombs around the map and the Spec Ops team must defuse them all before time runs out. What makes Bomb Squad special is that it features the unique Bomb Technician character, played by one member of the Spec Ops team, who is charged with defusing the explosives. He carries both an automatic shotgun and a mobile grenade launcher and is very heavily armored, making him a deadly force on his own; that said, the technician is still an open target any time he turns his back to defuse Insurgent bombs. Succeeding in Bomb Squad requires tactics, teamwork, patience and confidence to get the job done, all pillars of the overall SOCOM experience. When can you get your hands on Bomb Squad, you ask? Well, you'll be able to try out all four of our modes on two maps in our upcoming beta! The SOCOM 4 Multiplayer Beta will include each of the game's competitive multiplayer modes -- Suppression, Last Defense, Uplink and Bomb Squad -- all playable on the maps "Port Authority" and "Assault & Battery". And of course, you'll be able to play each of our modes in either of their Standard or Classic variants. The SOCOM 4 Multiplayer Beta will roll out in four separate phases. It'll begin with a small, private group and then expand weekly from there until it's freely available to everyone! Here's the schedule for each of the beta's rollout phases: On March 15th, a private beta goes live. We’ll be contacting eligible players soon. Beginning March 22nd, PlayStation Plus members will gain access to the beta. On March 29th, anyone with a beta code included with Killzone 3 gains entry. Starting April 5th, the beta will be freely downloadable to anyone via PlayStation Network. The beta is scheduled to run until April 13th, at which point the servers will be taken down in preparation of SOCOM 4's retail release on April 19th!

  15. The Call of Duty: Black Ops trailer featuring Kobe Bryant and a cast of everyday Call of Duty players was a stroke of marketing genius. Making a trailer for the First Strike map pack by having two in-game characters perform to a song from 80s band Scorpions? Also genius. For those that weren’t alive at the time the Berlin Wall was still erect, the German rock band Scorpion released a song in 1990 called “Wind of Change” that was about the dramatic social and economic shifts that were occuring in Eastern Europe at the time. Part of that change was the fall of the Berlin Wall. The Berlin Wall trailer is a decidedly more humorous take on the classic power ballad with two soldiers walking on either side of the wall singing along to the song. First Strike will be available to download on the Playstation network on March 3. Score: 0 (0 votes cast) Urgent Fury Command: More...
  16. For all your Xbox 360 Call of Duty players out there Treyarch has recently rolled out a brand new title update that fixes a number of issues. Amongst the patch notes is also some additional sniper rifle tuning that is sure to please the devout sniper community. Check out the full patch notes below; 2/28/11 (Title Update 7) Issues Addressed: • Matchmaking improvements to return higher quality results faster. This change includes settings that are tunable in the live environment, so tweaking may continue beyond initial release of this update. • The in-game store now hides DLC map packs that do not match the language of the player’s disc to decrease the possibility of users downloading the incorrect language version. • Calling in a Chopper Gunner immediately after getting shot down in a Gunship will no longer end the Chopper Gunner run prematurely. Required timing-specific button presses. • Split screen players are now able to change camera perspectives and cycle through players as a spectator. • Addressed an issue where the most recent match played in Zombies could overwrite the best match played on the leaderboard. • Improved Zombies lobbies to prevent players from erroneously receiving the error “Unable to join game session†under certain circumstances. • Addressed a number of community-discovered Zombies gameplay exploits. • Additional security feature updates. Gameplay Tuning: • Additional sniper rifle tuning. The update is currently being rolled out across the world and if you don’t recieve it be patient as it propogates across Xbox LIVE.

  18. Thanks to the continued support of Jeremy Dunham, Community Manager for Zipper Interactive, we had the pleasure of going to the Socom 4 media Day at Zipper headquarters in Redmond, WA. So part 1 is my take on our preview of multiplayer. Part 2 will come after our visit to PAX East where we will be preparing a future episode of UFreqTV for Playstation Home and visiting some more of the shooters out there that make Urgent Fury what it is today. Now let me set the bar here, the game was not in anyway a finished product and even in the time that I have taken to publish this, many changes have been made. In addition our video that we compiled has not been approved by Sony PR, so I am going to release the written version. I do apoligize as we had some great gameplay footage as well as some great Q & A with one of the Dev team members. So with that being said, here is Part 1… Socom 4: The renewal of Tactical Gaming Socom in my opinion was the beginning of tactical multiplayer gaming for consoles. Originally launched on PS2, Socom set the stage for one of the greatest phenomenon’s in console gaming. You and fifteen of your friends could group together online and with team work conquer another gaming team. You did this from your gaming lair. Friendships have been forged, and in many cases members of your team known as clans would put their gaming clan ahead of their wife and family. Many players such as I have been playing with our clan mates for many years. The community of Socom fans is by far one of the most critical in the business. You can visit the Socom forums at Socom.com and read thousands of posts asking for different functions and game options in Socom 4. Community managers Jeremy Dunham and Chris Roper have spent the last several months answering questions and gathering intel for the dev team at Zipper interactive Studios. Recently I had the privilege to visit Zipper Interactive to preview Socom 4 as the release date of April 19th approaches. As hoped we were treated to a first look at Socom 4 Multiplayer and a new Single player level. Our visit started with the true experience of the security required at a development studio. It was nothing less than expected. So we started with a presentation by Travis Steiner along with a demo of both a single player level and some multiplayer game play, but I have to be honest, I kept eagerly awaiting our turn to get our hands on it. I played Socom 4 at E3, but it was a very short demo. I was excited to play multiplayer as that is the staple for Urgent Fury, so I was like a starving boy in front of the desert buffet. You can find more about the presentation from Commander Fury on Urgent Frequency http://www.urgentfury.com/podcast. So we take position at our Playstation setup, no sharing, no taking turns, just one on one with a Playstation 3, Socom 4 and me. First let’s talk about what multiplayer has to offer in this version of Socom. I will admit this is truly a new version of Socom. Zipper has been taking notes on how the giant shooters out there are attracting hundreds of thousands of gamers to play. Unlike the latest release by Slant Six had horrific load times, to the point I spent many a night grilling dinner between rounds, but Socom 4 is a true improvement. If you want to jump on and get your game on, you will only have to wait a few minutes max. You choose a game from the list and you get to work. Now I won’t lie, there are grumblings by the Socom faithful saying this type of setup is not true to the series, and I will say you are right it isn’t, this is called innovation. More...
