OneMadMuppet (1329291) writes "Scott Faye, the producer on the oh-so-hot-looking Max Payne movie, has hooked up with 3D Realms to put together a Duke Nukem flick.
Faye has partnered with Scott Miller, founder and CEO of Apogee Software (better known as 3D Realms) to bring videogaming's most famous meathead to the big screen. "I'm working diligently at making a Duke Nukem movie scenario that will live up to the character and its import in the videogame world," he told Kotaku. "As is the case with all of my game adaptations, I'd rather not make the movie than make a poor adaptation."" top
OneMadMuppet (1329291) writes "The engineers at ASUS have done it again, unveiling "another world's first" with the Eee Stick, a new controller that "translates users' physical hand motions into corresponding movements onscreen." It's so fresh, so revolutionary, so ahead of its time, that we can't even begin to wrap our heads around it.
According to the press release, it comes in three parts, an Activation stick, a Navigation stick and a 2.4GHz RF dongle. It also has three operation modes, perfect for sports, action, racing, flight and beat 'em ups, as well as first person shooters and light gun games. That's pretty much everything!
OneMadMuppet (1329291) writes "Sony Computer Entertainment Japan's latest PSN announcement, The Last Guy tells the story of a mysterious purple space ray that zombifies everyone outside in the daylight. The player is "The Last Guy", a Himalayan mountain man who is slowly turning into a zombie as he rescues civilians hiding from the laser and infected humans.
The real-world scenery used for the game's levels is from fourteen cities, including Tokyo and New York City. Images were taken from Google Earth's satellite and retooled to work with the game design, placing people in buildings and using parks as "Escape Zones" for rescued pedestrians.
Although Japan already received its release, anxious North American and European players can demo the game at its Japanese site. Rather than use actual cities, this free stripped-down remake operates on any website. Not as a widget, but on the actual site. By entering the URL of most websites into the textbox on the homepage, LastGuy will load the site, place people underneath boxes, forms and images on the site and let players lead their woodsman through the website's blank space to save civilians while avoiding generated zombie armies."
