Mythic Entertainment further encourages players of their hit MMORPG, Warhammer Online, to participate in realm-vs-realm (RvR) battles with enhanced experience rewards. Killing enemy players in an Open RvR area will now grant players a 100% bonus experience rather than the previous 50%.

"With the addition of the new region-wide and RvR-wide chat channels we have seen a marked increase in Open RvR participation. In order to encourage this trend even further, we have made an additional adjustment to the experience awarded for killing enemy players in an Open RvR area. Previously we increased this amount by 50%. As of today, that bonus has been raised to 100%. With this change players killed in Open RvR will now be worth double the experience than those killed in scenarios!"

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is now available for the PC.

'Dexter' iPhone Game Details


Posted October 22, 2008 - By jmanalang

It's a good time to be a fan of Showtime's Dexter TV series. Aside from getting two more seasons of the show, details of the serial killer's iPhone title have emerged from publisher Marc Ecko Entertainment.

Developed by Icarus Studios, the video game debut of Dexter will stay true to the TV series, putting players into "investigative" style gameplay. In the show, the main man Dexter Morgan is a blood-splatter analyst for the police, although his fascination for blood isn't professional at all times. In the game, players will analyze crime scenes, uncover evidence and ultimately decide whether to turn in a suspect to the cops or have Dexter do what he does best--yes, just like the TV show.

Dexter the video game should be out later this year.

Behold, the Blu-Ray special edition packaging for The Dark Knight's retail debut this December 9. It could be yours for $64.99 when it hits shelves.

Although retailers appreciate the amount of business music games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band bring in, they present logistical problems when dealing with hundreds of thousands of units.

According to reports, retailers have been lashing out against instrument peripherals for consoles due to the amount of space they take up on their shelves. Less shelf space means less product and less product means less revenue.

One company, XS Games is taking a different approach. They developed a small peripheral that attaches to the Wiimote for their Wii version of their new music game, PopStar Guitar. The PS2 version will ship as software only, but will be compatible with all existing PS2 guitar peripherals. The game is expected to release later this month.

Wal-Mart was reportedly pleased at this approach as it means they can fit more product onto the shelves during the busy shopping season leading up to the Holidays. We think this only further emphasizes the need for full compatibility between instruments.


This gentleman deserves all the credit he gets. Lionhead Studios boss Peter Molyneux expressed his welcoming gratitude over the multitude of positive reviews of his company's latest action-RPG sequel, Fable II. In fact, the man's "incredibly emotional" as he said during his interview with CVG:

"I found myself becoming incredibly emotional as I read peoples reviews and saw how differently the reviewers were reacting to Fable II. Some reviewers played Good, others Evil. Some enjoyed the combat more than the story. Some ended up rich and others poor, and it's the sheer variety in how reviewers have played the game which has struck us most. I'd like to say a personal thank you to every reviewer out there for their patience and belief."

We really felt all warm and fuzzy inside after reading that, no kidding. Did you get Fable II yet? If you did, what do you think of it so far? Fable II is now available for the Xbox 360. Hit the jump for X-Play's review of the game.

Sure, your laptop may have the latest processor, gigs of RAM and the most uber video card out there but does it emit an earthy musk? Do you get a whiff of Floral Blossoms every time you open it up? We didn't think so...

Asus is introducing their latest lineup of special edition laptops that features four unique designs and scents. The folks at CNET break down the color and smell combos of the devices:

"Floral Blossom is pink with a flowery smell; Musky Black sports graffiti art and emits an earthy musk; Morning Dew comes in pastel green and offers that refreshing early a.m. je ne sais quoi; and Aqua Ocean gives off an aquatic aroma and comes with sky and wave imagery on the cover."

Aside from the complimentary scents, the laptops come with a 13.3-inch screen, Intel Core2 Duo processor, integrated webcam, up to 4GB of DRAM and up to 320GB of HD space. Pricing and availability is yet to be announced although customizing scents with your current laptops is already possible--like nacho cheese, French fry grease, ranch, etc.

Third-party megapublisher Electronic Arts was sued for copyright infringement involving the company's NCAA sports games series. The publisher allegedly used an official University of Las Vegas team anthem without composer Gerald Willis's permission. Willis, who works as a high school music teacher, now demands $1.5 million USD from EA.

The plaintiff claims that he heard the anthem he composed for UNLV on 10 EA Sports titles, which includes NCAA Football (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009), NCAA Basketball 2009, NCAA March Madness (2006, 2007, 2008) and NCAA Baseball 2006 and 2007. Breaking the demanded amount down, Willis seeks $150,000 for each violation.

Willis's lawyer, Ellen Winograd, said that the anthem was composed solely for the UNLV band. "It was not written for commercial use," Winograd said.



GLaDOS now beckons Xbox Live users to download the re-release of Valve's first-person puzzle title, Portal: Still Alive, available now at the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1,200 Microsoft Points.

Still Alive comes in with new challenge/advanced maps and achievements for everyone to enjoy. It's already downloading on our systems because we don't want to keep GLaDOS waiting--why should we? Check out the new achievements.

It may seem like publisher Electronic Arts is giving all the MMORPG love to PCs lately with Mythic's Warhammer Online and the upcoming BioWare MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic. However, EA executive Frank Gibeau said that both titles are "under consideration" for home console versions.

In Gibeau's interview with EuroGamer, he said:

"We've got this product, and we've got Warhammer at play. So we're trying to look at the primary research required to understand how would you deploy it, what the client size looks like, how big is the back-end, what the play experience looks like... Once we've got some of those questions answered, we'll be able to decide which is the right play to go after."

Former Sony executive Phil Harrison said that the company made 'absolutely the right decision' in delaying the release of LittleBigPlanet due to the controversial Qur'an references. Harrison, who resigned as SCE's Worldwide Studios boss to become the president of Atari, added that the delay won't tamper with the game's success when it launches, according to the reporty by GamesIndustry:

Harrison explains:

"I wasn't privy to all of the discussions and debate that went on within Sony, but I know they would have thought very deeply about it, and at the highest level of the company. And on reflection I think it was absolutely the right thing to do, because LittleBigPlanet set out from day one to be a game for the entire world - and if there was anything that accidentally detracted from that vision and made the game not fun for the entire world, then the game would have fundamentally failed in its mission.

The story in BioWare's Knights of the Old Republic RPG was nothing short of awesome, and if you haven't experienced it, then you're completely missing out on some of gaming's most revered moments. With the announcement of the upcoming MMO project from EA and BioWare, Star Wars: The Old Republic, we expect the story elements to be an incredible experience once again in the upcoming "story-driven" MMO.

As mentioned in yesterday's announcement, The Old Republic will have a unique story for each player in the game, whether the player chooses his/her allegiance with the Sith Empire or the Galactic Republic. Lead writer Daniel Erickson gave out some details on the The Old Republic's upcoming tale, ranging from its relevance to the Knights of the Old Republic title to class choices.
