  • Premium service coming to QuakeLive, Carmack confirms

    John Carmack just confirmed that a premium, subs-based service is on the way to QuakeLive. The free-to-play shooter isn’t supportable on ad revenue alone, the developer said. The game’s not in danger, Carmack assured, and it’s not a failure. He said it would probably never become a completely non-free service. JC was speaking in the […]

  • E3 2009 - Sony press conference liveblog!

    It’s so on. Microsoft delivered a blistering E3 keynote in LA yesterday, leaving many shellshocked at the depth and quantity of its announcements and Sony with everything to do in its conference today.

  • E3 2009 - Nintendo press conference liveblog!

    It’s time. Nintendo will take to the E3 stage in Los Angeles today for its 2009 keynote, and the world’s watching with stern eyes. The Kyoto monster came unstuck at the US show last year with a weak program centred on Wii Music, and there’s a lot to prove this time out. The hardcore want […]

  • E3 2009 - Press conference and liveblog timings

    It’s time. Mike’s got his Speedos and “Super Bunny” mask on. Steph’s been over-drinking preparatory coffee for weeks. Nathan’s so wired he’s only capable of muttering the words “airline” and “spreadsheet”. It’s E3. In LA. We’re going. You’re watching. You probably want to know when to tune in and what to expect. Below are listed […]

  • GDC: Live from Peter Molyneux's session!

    Why not? The Lionhead boss has already said he’s not going to announce a new game at GDC this year, but he’s always worth watching. Who knows? He’s British Development’s greatest showman, and he may well talked about the Fable II DLC he confirmed yesterday, named See the Future. You never know until you know. […]
