    OnLive Continues Their THQ Deal Week With… 

     

    MX VS. ATV REFLEX!

    First off, I’d like to apologize on behalf of the ENTIRE 8BC crew for not being as swift with our news as we used to be, the majority of us are absolutely slammed with other priorities at the moment and we hope to get these matters resolved so we may go back to our usual regimen of making your minds cum on a daily basis.

    Slightly perverted-undertone apology aside; today on OnLive, you may/will purchase Mx Vs. Atv Reflex for a mere 5USD. Now I’ve been on record as saying that I “will forever miss the Mx VS. Atv series” and that still holds true. So.. to honor one of my most favorite racing franchises of all time. I, Shawn, not as an editor, not as an omnipotent being that blesses all of you (except for when Full Sail insists  that I cram my head full of knowledge, damn you Finite Math), not even as the perverted savior of many social networks, but as a gamer celebrating all of the joy this franchise gave me, will buy Ms VS. Atv Reflex through OnLive and aggressively play the hell out of the online multiplayer. I hope to see all of you OnLine (HA, you see what I did there. Whooo I am a hoot and a half) with me.

    My player tag on OnLive is “supermave” (sans quotation marks) please mention 8BC in your friend request. 🙂

    And if you don’t mind, I’m just going to leave this game play footage here, I assure you it has absolutely no ulterior motives or deceptions to entice you to buy the game and join me online *inconspicuous whistle*.

    As always, thank you for reading *and watching the video, I KNOW YOU DID* Feel free to Like us on Facebook and stalk us on Twitter. Also, if you’d click that nice little “follow” button on the bottom left hand corner of your screen, that would make me really happy. 😀

    Vita’s 3G Capped to 20MB of Data Download… wait what? o__O 

    Seems like Sony is taking a page from mobile phone service providers and posting a data download cap on their Vita (the data download cap is only if you opt for the 3G model.)

    Sony representatives stated that players who will use the 3G downloads will be limited to 20MB of data. Wait what? That’s pretty damn absurd; what if I want to download a game from the PS Store or even do some online gaming? Oh wait, I can’t even do online gaming in 3G because the speeds are around 128kbps download and 64kbps upload. So unless I REALLY like the feel of my online gaming to be somewhere along the lines of obtuse and virtually unplayable, I get no online gaming for my Vita. Which brings about another question, why even bother having a 3G model if the speeds are going to be this piss poor?

    Luckily those speeds and data caps are only for Japan (as of this typing) it’s still unknown as to what Americans and Brits get to do with their 3G, but since AT&T has an exclusive partnership deal with Sony & the Vita (in the U.S. that is) I’m guessing fuck all. I think I’m going to get Verizon Wi-Fi just to see if I can make an AT&T employee’s head implode.

    The PSVita launches in Japan on December 17th, 2011. And sometime in early 2012 for the rest of us that matter.

    As always thanks for reading. Feel free to Like us on Facebook and stalk all of us on Twitter.

    Now go back to saving the world or that princess that never puts out.

    FFX for PS3 and PSVita Will be a REMAKE 

     

    I’m usually not the type of guy that gets “floored” by announcements, but needless to type, after stumbling upon this tidbit of news I immediately cast myself onto the floor. According to PSTime, Final Fantasy X will be a full blown remake that uses the Final Fantasy XIII engine. Now it’s time for some block quoted and bullet pointed details.

     

    • Uses the same engine from Final Fantasy XIII and adapted to PSVita.
    • All that is made ​​from scratch with the new engine is the design of the characters, the aeons and stage elements.
    • The sets and scenes in HD remastered CGI will implement a “filter” FFXIII Engine.
    • The magic and some lighting effects are achieved with the new engine “Luminous”.
    • The Blitzball undergoes some small changes.
    • Will include some online options (specific details are unknown).
    • The release date in Japan is fiscal 2012.

    (Editors note: I tried to edit and modify those translated details to make the most sense as best as I could with what little energy I had)

    I just hope they also edit out this laugh scene.

    Tell us what you think about all of these details in our comment box (it won’t bite). Also, Like us on Facebook and stalk us on Twitter.

    And.. thanks for reading. 😀

    Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary for $30 & Pre-Order Goodies 

    Feel like seeing where the Halo phenomenon started? Feel like reliving the “good ol’ days” of the Halo-verse. Feel like reminiscing at that one spot where you got sniped for the very first time.. only to be sniped again because you were too busy staring at some fucking polygonal scenery reminiscing about a time you let a bullet go through your head!! Oh, did I forget to mention that all of those classic maps are going to be remastered in HD.. ’cause that’s kinda important.

    Well you’ll be able to do all of that on November 15, 2011 when “Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary” is released for the Xbox 360. Oh did I forget to mention that (through Amazon) is only 30 DOLLARS! Oh yes my lovable worshipers you did read that correctly. But just to add some more validity to this epic announcement, allow me to humble you with the details straight from Amazon’s page.

    $10 Credit Plus Pre-order Bonus
    Pre-order Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and get a $10 Amazon credit good toward the purchase of items shipped and sold by Amazon.com (certain exclusions apply, including Kindle books, MP3s, and video rentals and downloads) as well as Master Chief Avatar Armor and the Grunt Funeral Skull (once activated, every grunt’s methane tank will explode like a plasma grenade when killed). The promotional code for the credit will be e-mailed within two days after the product ships. The access code for the armor and skull will be packaged inside the game box. Offer valid when shipped and sold by Amazon.com, while supplies last. Limit one per customer. Amazon reserves the right to change or terminate this promotion at any time.

    Okay so it’s $30 dollars when you use the $10 credit, but still, what else are you going to use that ten dollar credit on? Socks? I don’t think so, there are digital aliens out there and a ginger in some far away state THAT NEEDS TO DIE (digitally)! Oh shit.. I completely forgot the link to make it easier for all of you to pre-order this awesome slice of epic over at Amazon. There we go.. all better now.

    Well there you have it, feel free to express your gratitude towards me in our comments section below, also Like us on Facebook and stalk us on Twitter.

    As usual, thanks for reading.

    Final Fantasy XIII-2 Only Needs One Disc (Xbox 360) 

     

    For those of you who were annoyed at having to change your disc after 10-20 hours of playing the original Final Fantasy 13 on your Xbox 360, then I have good news for you! No longer will you have to do that tiresome process of getting up, walking that extremely long journey over to your Xbox 360, pushing the eject button, take the disc out of the tray, place the swapped disc back in the box, then place the requested “new” disc into the Xbox 360 disc tray, push the disc tray back into the 360, use a towel to wipe the sweat off of your body, drink a gallon of Gatorade (you’re gonna need the electrolytes), walk that same journey back to your gaming seat, lift that ever-so heavy controller and finally resume gaming.. after watching the mandatory cutscene.

    Famitsu has just confirmed this so don’t look at me like I’m trying to start an insane rumor. Toriyama insists that FFXIII-2.0937458 is just as big as FFXIII, they just minimized the CG cutscenes and just implemented event scenes where everything is in real time (I better not see “press A to do a flashy spin”).

     

    Feel free to express your utter gratefulness to me in our comments section below this article, also Like us on Facebook and stalk us on Twitter.

    Thanks for reading

    OnLive Lands in the UK This Week 

    This week, very ambitious and omnipotent, omniscient cloud gaming service, OnLive is going to land in the UK and rock its knickers off. And since this way of obtaining and playing games may seem very confusing  to some people, I’ve decided to post some helpful videos and answers from OnLive’s page. There will also be a link for you UK residents to go and check out the service for yourself after all of this helpful text is out of the way.

    What is this ‘cloud gaming’ thing anyway?

     

    What do I need to get started?

     

    That’s all well and good, but do you have a neat little OnLive overview?

    That’s a lot of American pricing. What will I pay in the UK?

    We don’t have official word on how it’ll all convert into Pound Sterling. UK pricing will be detailed in full later this week.

    Does OnLive stream PC versions of games?

    According to OnLive’s VP of Games & Media John Spinale, “Yes” although he told us that the games are modified into an OnLive version of their PC counterparts. “But at the core of our game servers is essentially a PC architecture,” he emphasised saying that OnLive games do look better than the console versions.

    What about lag?

    OnLive admits that your game won’t run as fast as if it were hosted on a server in your home but it does work to keep latency as low as possible “hopefully to the point where you don’t notice it.”

    “At this stage in OnLive’s technology evolution, most OnLive players report that they experience no latency or acceptable latency. But, some players will find the current latency unacceptable in some games.”

    It continues to say that it’s always working to reduce latency even further all the time but the best way to find out how well the system runs in your home is to try some demos. All games in the OnLive library can be played for free for half an hour.

    Should I go with a particular broadband provider for best results?

    OnLive has partnered with BT in the UK. You don’t have to be with BT to play OnLive but it will be working with the cloud-gaming company and optimising with OnLive in mind.

    Can I play over WiFi?

    The OnLive micro-console itself can only be used over a wired connection using an Ethernet cable. You can of course use a wireless connection when playing OnLive on your PC or Mac using the OnLive app.

    If you don’t have an Ethernet port close enough to your TV to use the OnLive micro-console, you can create a network bridge using either a Powerline Adapter (using mains plugs to bridge the gap), a Coax Bridge (using TV aerial port) or a Wireless Bridge (using two wireless routers).

    Does it have decent developer and publisher support?

    “Almost all publishers and developers are on board,” says OnLive also pointing out that independent developers will be just as well represented as the big boys thanks to the ability to self-publish digital distribution provides.

    “There’s a large number of people on the platform right now and the vast majority of third-party games as they come out going forward will be on OnLive pretty much day and date,” says the cloud company.

    Where do I sign up?

    Register your gamertag at http://www.onlive.co.ukwhere you’ll be able to download the OnLive app for PC or Mac or order the OnLive micro-console at launch. Watch out for news on retail partnerships coming shortly.[ Source: OnLive ]

    As always, thanks for reading. If you have any more questions feel free to leave them in our comments below. Feel free to Like us on Facebook and or stalk all of us on Twitter. Once again, thanks for reading.

      Always a little cautious of video game novels, but a comic book sounds like the perfect place for Nate.

    Minecraft Challenges You To A Game Of Donkey Kong 

    Do you have what it takes to become the King of Kong? If you answer is no, then no worries because a Minecrafter has created and brought you a non competitive version of the game into the Minecraft world for you to download and manipulate in any way or form you would like. Princess’s pffffffft they are so nagy and old school and in this version they have scrapped that concept along with many others and have re imagined and brought you a new experience. So say goodbye to the uptight maidens who don’t put out and toss them out the barrel and grab yourself this new hot maiden that will put out and let you pork(you get it pork). So click on the YouTube video and click on the description box to download Minecraft Kong so you can play ,pork and pun to your hearts desires.

    Much Love JT

    Bring The Oddworld Series To The Xbox360 

    Bring The Oddworld series to your Xbox 360 by going to ipetitions and signing the Get the Oddworld  The Xbox 360 petition. It’s not fair that a lot of gamers where introduced to Munchees Odyssee and Strangers Wrath on the original Xbox and won’t get to play and re live the HD version of those epic titles this year or maybe ever. So epicness struck on ipetitions when a petition to bring those titles to the Xbox 360 was created. The petition currently has over 240 signatures and is growing, but still needs allot more support from allot more gamers. Why should you care? Why shouldn’t you! Munchees Oddysee was one of the original Xbox’s launch games and the first Next gen console game of that time that I have ever played and for many other too. I bought a console I didnt want because the Gamecube was sold out and a game I had no idea about and ended up falling in love with both. I’ve had many nostalgic moments with several games and consoles and  Munchee’s Oddysee just happens to be one of them so it would be cool to re live the HD version of the game on the Next Gen version of the console it came out for and I’m sure allot of others would too. So head over to the link below and sign the petition its free and you have nothing to lose and a epic game to gain.

    http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/get_oddworld_on_the_xbox_360/

    [Spelling Munch’s Oddysee, Munchees Oddysee is a habit from a young age so deal with it]

    Much Love JT

      I’d love for Oddworld to come to the 360. I absolutely love that series!
