The day after Spike TV's Video Game Awards hit us with a deluge of new trailers, game reveals and celebrity guest appearances, Sony will hold an "exclusive PlayStation 3 reveal" event in Hollywood. What could it be? Uncharted 3?
While the invite makes no mention of the game (or games) that Sony will have present at its event, the next Naughty Dog game seems like a distinct possibility. That's because we've heard from a source that Uncharted 3 will have its video debut at the VGAs on December 11, so an extended reveal for one of Sony's biggest franchise titles the next day seems plausible.
And since we've heard that select press has already seen Uncharted 3, an opportunity for the rest of us to go eyes on with what Naughty Dog has cooking would certainly be appreciated.
Of course, Sony may have something else on hand entirely or multiple new games to show off in Hollywood on December 12, but given Uncharted 2: Among Thieves' memorable showing at 2008's VGAs, it would seem a successful formula one wouldn't want to muck with.
Until we hear more, call it rumor for now, but stay tuned, because we're sure to know more very soon.
*is officially hyped*
New Bioware Game to be Revealed at VGAs December 11th
BioWare will reveal its next game at Spike's Video Game Awards on Saturday, December 11. From the one screen we received from EA and the teaser (posted after the break), we suspect it might be called Mass of Honor: Dragunov Age. Yeah, let's go with that for now.
Along with the BioWare reveal, VGA emcee Geoff Keighley also tweeted that the event would feature a new trailer for Batman: Arkham City. The show should also reveal the Guillermo Del Toro project over at THQ and maybe, just maybe, something involving Gears of War and Kinect.
Update: The sharp eyes of commenter Arth Vader picked up that the gun in the pic is either the M-29 Incisor Sniper Rifle from the Mass Effect 2 Aegis Pack DLC or a reused asset. If it is the M-29, it would imply the game will be Mass Effect related.
Update 2: Recall that EA said last February that something "far-reaching" was coming to Mass Effect during the fourth quarter of the publisher's current fiscal year -- or in layman's terms: January 1 – March 31, 2011.
Update 3: Okay, now things are just getting nerdy. BioWare blasted out the adjacent QR code on Twitter which, when decoded, spits out a string of 1s and 0s. When you convert this binary code (we told you: nerdy), it reads: 55.845. Of course, as everyone knows, 55.845 is the atomic mass of iron. Maybe the presence of the word "mass" in our findings isn't quite enough to go on, but we're sure you'll agree that the presence of the word "mass" coupled with a piece of fan fiction titled Mass Effect: Iron Rebirth is practically a smoking M-29 Incisor Sniper Rifle.
Update 4: And another QR code has been loosed upon the unsuspecting people of Twitter. This one is again some binary that translates into: -128.5°F. Converted to Celsius, that becomes -89.16666666666667°C. "The coldest temperature ever recorded on earth is -89.2 degrees Celsius (-128.5 degrees Fahrenheit) at Vostok, Antarctica on July 21, 1983," says Wikipedia; and this Mass Effect wiki page describes the Vostok solar system as "a medium system with four planets and an asteroid belt," itself named after the Soviet "Vostok Program" that resulted in the first manned space flight. Oh, and that asteroid belt that was mentioned? The wiki page calls it a "metal-rich asteroid." You know what else is metal? That's right, iron!
Update 5: A few folks have also written in about the planet Aequitas, which is also from the Mass Effect universe. Logic train: 1st QR code = 55.845, the atomic mass of Iron. 2nd QR code = 128.5. -128.5 deg F = Vostok, Antarctica record-breaking temperature. -128.5 deg F ~= -89 deg C = surface temperature of Aequitas, a planet known for its "famous Iron Canyons.
Frigging Bioware lmao. You know this is going to be epic. I'll be watching December 11th. #Entertainment
Whats Next With Markov Out!With Markov out for and undetermined period (IMO I think it's the year), what should the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge do to beef up? Well I think it's time to bring in some size and grit, with a great scoring touch and JM mold... who could that be... I know, how about Dustin Penner.
He's big, strong, imposing hit's, never give up attitude, great at both eneds of the ice, one year left on his contract, team player and not that big of a cap hit. he would greatly mold into the second line with Gio, and Gomer and he would add 5 inches to there line up. this is my opinion but what about your's. now that the cap space is free, what should PG do to spice up and contend for the Holy Hockey Grail.
Should we think about another puck moving D-Man like Wisnewski or Kaberle. Should we keep the money and pay Markov at the end of the year. I want to know what TCL Bloggers and TCL fanbase really wants with the freeCap space.
Let me Have it Boys and Girls! #Hockey
Penner is out of shape, inconsistent, unreliable and overpaid and incredibly overrated. He's the last person I would want on this team.
Size is overrated sometimes. Don't just look for who's 6'4" 240lbs because size doesn't always equate skill or talent.
but he has proven before that he can play in this league, maybe a change of air is what he need's. we have to go beyond the stats sometimes.
But it seems to me that you're just looking at his stats... size, a couple of good seasons and a cup. Keep in mind the team he won the cup with was ridiculously deep and he had no shortage of forwards to feed him the puck. And the only reason he even got a big contract like he did was because Kevin Lowe is a douche and wanted to screw over any team he could. Honestly, I think he's literally the most overrated player in the entire league right now, save maybe the other contract Kevin Lowe basically gave to Thomas Vanek.
lol understood but what helps the situation if penner does come to montreal is that his contract is partially paid by the habs because it would be the rest of his last year, seeing that he hasn't had much success with the oilers he will sign for cheap if he does pan out with the habs. second he will see another player he won the cup with in moen, and second he will have a pretty good line mate with gomez to feed him and gio to pick up the rebounds or feed penner. if he needs someone to feed him gomez and gionta can do it. it's just a suggestion because we wouldn't have to sign him at the end of the yer or we can force him to do what bertuzzi did with detroit, sign for less.
I honestly don't think his cup experience really matters all that much. It's not like we're lacking that on the team, we have plenty of players with that including Gomez and Gionta. For all you know he'll ruin the Chemistry, or could be the next latendresse. I'd rather not give up assets to get him.
RUMOR: Colin Campbell bias and corrupt?http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puck_daddy/post/Have-Savard-emails-exposed-NHL-s-Colin-Campbell-?urn=nhl-285531
I hope you realize the title is a little tongue in cheek
The jist: Campbell scolded an NHL official in e-mails for penalizing his son Gregory, and accused Savard of diving because of a personal grudge against him. it really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that Campbell is biased and irrational, but nevertheless, it's a story.
Interestingly enough, the website that posted the e-mails is now not working with a 403 error.
NHL Head Coach Memorial 2010-11We have our first victim. Despite the 10 game losing streak I find this to be somewhat of a surprise. Not Gordon's fault IMO:
Scott Gordon has been relieved of his duties as head coach, according to a team source; the Islanders are expected to make an announcement later this morning.
Gordon will remain on staff in an advisory role to general manager Garth Snow.
Bridgeport head coach Jack Capuano will take over as interim head coach. Assistant coaches Dean Chynoweth and Scott Allen will remain on staff...
