Jet Set Radio

image description

by phnk

In 2000, Sega released Jet Set Radio, known as Jet Grind Radio in the United States, on the Dreamcast. The game’s soundtrack, cell-shaded visuals and fun gameplay involving spray painting, or tagging, surfaces instantly made it a hit. For those gamers without a Dreamcast, Sega is re-releasing Jet Set Radio, now the same name in all countries, as a digital download. Set for release on the Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC, Jet Set Radio is a high definition port of this classic Sega game. Players select from a wide array of characters, such as Beat, Gum and Corn, is they must take over rival gang’s territories to spray painting their logo everywhere they can in the various districts of Tokyo-To. To reach many of the tagging locations, players must carefully navigate the environment, skating on multiple surfaces to reach their intended destination.

Wii are not amused

In a tidbit picked up from Bit-tech.net, Peter Molyneux apparently displayed his concerns over motion sensing controls at the LGC. He pretty much reiterates a concern that was mentioned on the net when the Wii was first announced. The worry here is he is basing his opinions off of playing the Wii. To a point he has a valid concern, not to say that certain tactile controls are not fun but the can become strenuous after a while. Games such as DDR, Time Cop and guitar hero show that in short bursts the games might be fun but border a chore when it come to those who want to master a game. To disperse the negativity, the Wii apparently will have sensitivity settings, and chances are Molyneux was playing an unfinished version of the game. In the end it is up to the game devs to find that balance between fun and chore, nothing really new here.

Control center deity

I know how our readership thinks. The denizens of the Untitled Network are so hardcore the are not going to get just one of every next gen console, they are going to get one for every region out there. But how are you going to connect your nine devices in addition to your army of consoles from the previous generations. Hexus gives us a heads up on the Joytech Control Centre 540C. 5 inputs on the back and one on the front.... was the last thing jimmy said to his mother after disappearing into his room.... never to come out again. You know you want one... orr.. four.

Dr. Kimberly Thompson Responds

Thank our lucky stars! The researcher lovingly mocked for Violent Pac-Man allusions has responded. Not only did she respond but she gave an interview to Joystiq. Those guys gave her a fair interview and she came off sounding less like a raving anti-game lunatic and more like a researcher who was taken out of context. To Give her the same level of fairness on UN the links that she provided are here [gamepolitics.com] and here [House testimony] and here [ Kid Risk Homepage]. Enjoy!

Sony offers confirmation about PS3 launch

Sony contacts Gamesindustry.biz to comment about how Kaz Hirai's comments in a recent UK GameSpot interview were misunderstood. On the site they even have a recording of Kaz's comments. As far as can be gleaned form the conversation there might not be an even distribution of the 2 million consoles upon launch. Chances are one territory will get more than the other. The Sony reps corrected his comments regarding how many PS3 were going to be available by the end of the year but pay no heed to his comment about assembly production not starting yet. Is this a sign that their are not worried or are they trying to sidestep coming clean about any issues they might have about production?

Video Games desensitize!

Recently, a report from medical website WebMD claims that video games desensitizes players to real world violence. From the article: "Carnagey's team studied 257 college students -- 124 men and 133 women. "First, the students noted their typical video game use. They also took aggression surveys and had their heart rate and galvanic skin response checked." "Next, the students played either a violent or nonviolent video game for 20 minutes." "When the game session ended, the students repeated the heart rate and galvanic skin response tests. Both groups showed similar results." "The students' last task: Watch a 10-minute videotape of real-life violence (shootings, prison fights, police confrontations, and courtroom outbursts)." "During the screening, the researchers monitored the students' heart rate and galvanic skin responses." "Students who had played violent video games showed less physiological response to the real-life videos." "The study "demonstrates that violent video game exposure can cause desensitization to real-life violence," write Carnagey and colleagues." "Which medium is most desensitizing -- TV, movies, or video games? And are some people more affected than others?"
