Sledgehammer’s 3rd Person Call Of Duty Unsurprisingly Cancelled

You might remember some big talk from Activision regarding a third person action spin to the gargantuan franchise several months ago. Well, it’s now several months later and that plan seems to have fallen through. “We came on board to make a third-person action adventure game, in the Call of Duty franchise, and we were working on it about six months,” said Glen Schofield, Sledgehammer co-founder.

Accusations Of Deus Ex Racism Elicit Square Enix Response

Deus Ex Human Revolution developer Eidos found itself in fairly warm water when videos showing  player-NPC interaction revealed a rather… curious NPC called Letitia. Letitia’s jive talkin’ ways have drawn criticism for Eidos, but apparently not enough to warrant more than a fairly tame non-apology. Then again, it was pretty much a non-controversy to begin with, since if showing black characters being poor and speaking in Ebonics is racist, then surely so is every police procedural on TV in the last decade.

S-Walker Is Like Your Favorite Segway But Cheaper

It’s true. German-designed and Chinese-built, the S-Walker is being showcased in the China booth at IFA 2011. Its biggest pull is price, selling for an estimated $3,000.  By the looks of it, it’s also lightweight and a total no-brainer to drive. It would be cool though if it could be outfitted with a few bins so that it’s capable of small cargo.  Could it be hacked for increased performance? Let’s find out.

iPhonegate: Did Apple Employees Impersonate Police Officers?

Anyway, in true ‘the-plot-thickens’ fashion, the man who was searched by police and Apple staff after an iPhone 5 went missing in Cava22 has spoken out. His big revelation? It’s puzzling and contradicted by conflicting reports from the authorities.

Realistic District 9 Prawn Assault Rifle For Sale (Video)

District 9 is one of those rare movies that knocked the world on its butt. It’s also a shining example of independent film succeeding on its own terms. If we’re not mistaken, a lot of people actually wished a full-fledged Halo movie were made with the same production values as District 9.
