E3 2012 – Far Cry 3 Multiplayer Trailer

E3 2012 – Naughty Bear is a Deadly Teddy

Today, Keith and I hit up 505 Games to check out their stealth assassin game Naughty Bear, which is being re-released as an arcade title this fall. Naughty is a murderous Teddy Bear who goes on a killing spree when he doesn’t get invited to a party. Apparently, it’s like a super-simplified version of Hitman… with Teddy Bears.

Just to give you an idea of the game’s goofy, tongue-in-cheek tone, the loading screen (called “loathing” screen) is a minigame with Naughty Bear throwing knives into a helpless bear’s chest.

E3 2012 – OnLive And Razer To Make The Cloud Gaming Storm A Little Bit Bigger

By IDC’s check, chances are (well, only by margin of about 48%) that you know what cloud gaming is, which in the case of OnLive is running a bunch of games in their data center and then broadcasting the video results to your computer or TV through a console. Kelly and I dropped in on the OnLive and Razer joint conference this morning to hear what they had to say about its future.
