Rez HD and Ikaruga coming to XBLA

The Xbox 360 may not be doing too well in the land of the rising sun, but that didn’t stop Microsoft from making some killer announcements at the Tokyo Game Show. Besides the formal announcement of the exclusive Ninja Gaiden 2 (shock!) a handful of downloadable titles were announced for Xbox Live Arcade including Treasure’s critically acclaimed shooter Ikaruga and a new, high-definition version of Sega and United Game Artists’ Rez with full 5.1 audio! 1up has got the screenshots here, commence drooling!

Ninja Gaiden 2 BRINGS THE GORE!

Looks like the good folks at Xbox Japan slipped up an released some screen shots before the official announcement of Ninja Gaiden 2 for the Xbox 360. These shots were quickly taken down, but not before a mister bloke of NeoGAF took notice. More gory goodness after the jump.

ff517.jpgEarlier today Newsarama broke the news that industry legend Mike Wieringo had passed away from a heart attack. Wieringo was probably best known for his runs on The Flash (where he co-created the character Impulse) and Fantastic Four, both with writer Mark Waid. Most recently he had just finished up a run on Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man with Peter David and the miniseries Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four with Jeff Parker. Mike was regarded as one of the nicest, most humble guys in the business. He was only 44. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his friends and family.

For more details, please read the original Newsarama article here.
UPDATE: Newsarama has also added a few words from Mike’s friends and colleagues Mark Waid and Tom Dezago here.

Keyboard & mouse support for Unreal Tournament 3 on Playstation 3: Confirmed!

Gamers have long been demanding keyboard and mouse support for first-person shooters on the next-gen consoles. Today Epic Vice President Mark Rein made a rather epic announcement on the company’s official message board:


I checked with Steve Polge and he said that YES we are supporting keyboard and mouse in Unreal Tournament 3 on PS3. He is confident we are doing it in a way that will be balanced without feeling “gimped” for either side. We’ll also allow people to choose whether or not they want to allow mixed controller vs. keyboard/mouse games or not.

I think you guys are going to love UT3!

More details to come later.

Still no word about KB/M support in the eventual Xbox 360 version of the game, but this news should make quite a few PS3 owners very happy.
