[E3 2010] – Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 2

The Naruto series has never been shy in terms of the amount of games it has. Though most games are just the same story arc told again and again. Usually we are just given another Naruto game with an even longer Game Title. It seemed though the Ninja Storm series was attempting to break that rule. With the first game having a huge story arc taking the events from the entire Naruto Series. Though it did lack in terms of single player Ninja Storm 2 promises to solve that dilemma. I had some hands on time with the game and got to talk with Namco Bandai about what’s new in Ninja Storm 2.

More Naruto Fun and a Trailer after the Break.

[E3 2010] New Xbox 360 with New Kinect Port

Since Project Natal’s now dubbed Kinect introduction last year, Microsoft has often said the peripheral will work with all existing Xbox 360 consoles. Today with the unveiling of the newest revision to the Xbox 360, a new proprietary port marked Aux is actually a special Kinect port that handles both data and power for the new motion sensor system. Existing 360 owners will still however be able to use Kinect just not natively like the Xbox 360 “slim”. This means you will need to utilize a USB port and an independent power source.

Def Jam Rapstar Preview

Def Jam Rapstar Preview

Yesterday, we here at Pixelated Geek were fortunate enough to be invited to the Konami offices in El Segundo, California for a little taste of what they had in store for E3. One of the games we got our hands on was Def Jam Rapstar. Def Jam Rapstar is the first exclusively focused hip hop music game for the current generation of consoles. Think of it as Rock Band, but strictly rap and hip hop. Now I know what you’re thinking: “Not another freakin music game.” Well that’s what I think when I hear of titles like Rock Band: Green Day. But it’s true, fans of rap and hip hop have been largely ignored by these types of games. Def Jam Rapstar aims to change that. But don’t let the name fool you, it not only includes artists from Def Jam, but various artists from different labels as well. More after the break.

Halo Reach Live Action Short Goes Online Tomorrow

Tomorrow, Microsoft and Bungie will be releasing another Halo live action short based on the upcoming game, Halo Reach. I guess a short film for a video game as the heart of a marketing campaign works wonders on sales numbers. I’ll admit it that, even with all the bad reviews on Halo: ODST. I still bought it hoping to feel like I’m in that short film they made for it.

The short film, titled “Birth of a Spartan”, runs 60 seconds long and goes online tomorrow at 5:00am GMT (tonight at 10pm PST for you US west coasters).

The short will be available on www.welcometonobleteam.com on Tuesday, April 27 at 5.00 am GMT. In addition to being able to view the short, users can also upload a photo of themselves and get an image created of them as a Spartan III. On the following day a special, extended two minute 30 second version will be available for download on Xbox LIVE exclusively for Gold members. The ad short will also premiere on April 28 in cinemas across North America in select theaters with screenings through the opening weekend of “Iron Man 2″ and concludes on May 13.

For the full press release, go past the break.
