Microsoft "concerned" by claims GCHQ considered using Kinect for surveillance

I don't see how watching me cranking in front of my TV is necessary, proportionate, and in accordance with UK law.

The Walking Dead creator reckons Activision FPS “could be a worthwhile experience”

I think its a safe bet that this game will stink. Kirkman has never made any secret of his willingness to milk the franchise, The Walking Dead Lunchbox is a bit of an in joke. He says he needs the cash to send his kids to college, but by now he should be able to build them their own college.

I don't resent it, the comic is still awesome so as far as I'm concerned its pretty easy to ignore all the other fluff.

Gears of War 3 writer Karen Traviss not working on Judgment

The only thing I remember about the Gears 3 writing (and I've played it co-op at least twice and arcade loads) is the whole confused Char/Marcus/Griffin encounter. Griffin had a vaild reason for hating the COG, and we get a glimpse of that, but it just ends with Marcus shouting louder that he's just lost his 'brother'. Like a massive fucking cry baby, tbh.
So the whole theme of military culpability ends with a military meathead shouting at someone. After the rest of the civilian survivors are wiped out, I might add. I mean what the fuck was all that about?
Tip for the future Kaz, if you try to introduce something thought provoking, think it through, because that whole thing was just bollocks.

Keith Vaz pushes Parliament to debate gaming's "harmful effects"

Has anyone from the industry ever tried to engage with Keith Vaz? I mean like, show him that not all gamers are 11 year old murder fans, and that many share his concerns about the sale of innapropriate material to minors?

Then when you had his attention you could put a sack over his head and give him a good kicking. Maybe with baseball bats.

@coolbritannia

Yeah, pretty much. The Iranian state manages to conjure up coach loads of 'spontaneous' protesters fairly regularly. While theyre in Tehran, maybe thay can take advantage of the great shopping too!

Well I'm surprised its taken the Iranian authorities this long.

They must have their hands full with all those nukes they're making.

Whoops, did I say that out loud!

Free Gears of War 3 Booster Map Pack DLC released

I can confirm that the horde command centre is pap. Level 1 gives you three snipers who only have one bullet each. You could get three headshots for free (automatically) depending on how many enemies are out in the open. You push a button, the game does the rest.

Level 2 gives you a mortar attack. Again, the effectiveness of this depends on how many enemies are in the open. I waited until the the Thrashball map was crawling with maulers, grinders and such, but only managed to kill one drone with it. That kill cost me a cumulative total of 3000 Gears moon dollars.

Level 3 gives you a hammer strike, but I've yet to feel compelled to waste all my money on it. Just like I wasted my money on the season pass. If it was made clear that EPIC would transform from being pretty decent with DLC to money grabbing whores in the space of two games, I think I would have waited a bit to see what I was buying.

MS: Xbox Live Fort Gay ban "a mistake"

To be fair they were probably doing the guy a favor. I mean who would want to tell everyone on xbox live that they lived in Fort Gay? Oh I can't see that causing any problems, I'll also put down that I live on Bangmyass St.

This post in no way condones homophobic behavior, but lets face it you get screamed at for being gay just for signing in to xbox live these days.

MS: Kinect "really hard to pull off"

@tigerstyle

I was talking more about their approach, not the hardware involved. Kinect is being marketed at kids, casuals and fat women who think flapping their bingo wings in front of the TV is exercize. If you're really stoked about Dance central, then knock yourself out.

Yeah because Microsoft know everything about copying and duplication, now that they've attempted to duplicate Nintendo's whole approach to motion control.

Doesn't it seem a little late in the day to be casting and finishing the story? Its out in two months, I thought they'd be on top of this by now.
