Deadpool’s Reveal Trailer Brings the Crazy

This trailer shows us something of the things to expect in the upcoming Deadpool game. There’s a lot going on, even more than I could even write down. But one notable things to point out is that Deadpool’s old buddy, Cable, will be showing up to be the straightman to Deadpool’s insanity. Other than that, you just get a better look at the fourth-wall breaking mercenary’s shenanigans.

There is currently no confirmed release date for the game.

Embrace Your Turtle Power This Summer

Activision has released a trailer for a downloadable game they have planned for this summer based off of the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.  Now some might be wondering which continuity the game is based off of, especially with what seems to be a lot of love from the media world focusing on the series lately.  Luckily it looks to be based off of the currently running Nickelodeon series instead of the known Micheal Bay film (evident by the nickelodeon logo at the end of the trailer, and the fact that they’re actually mutants, not aliens, and Megan Fox is thankfully no where to be seen), however the graphics are much more realistic than cartoonish, so I’m really only venturing a guess there.  It is possible that the only reason the nickelodeon logo is there is because nick currently holds the rights to TMNT.  The game seems to be a sort of 3D action game ala Batman’s Arkham series, though likely with much less content considering it appears to be download only, and also is apparently the first of a three game deal with Activision.  The game will be released on PSN, XBLA and PC this summer and feature online 4 player co-op.


Cryptic Website Teases Bungie’s ‘Destiny’

First off, before continuing, I’d like you to see what you make out of this site.

The patterns you see on the left hand side should help you out with the puzzle.

So what did you deduct from this, Doctor Jones? What I got…well. I can’t make it out at all.
If you click for more information, you get the following:

“Our sky is filled with unseen signals. Radio-frequency emissions pulse and flit and dance all around us. Yet even a singing patch of sky can be observed, and transformed into a range of frequencies.
Can you hear it? No, not yet. It has not yet arrived. But together we can receive its call.Imagine combining the observations of thousands across the globe on an object meandering through the heavens. The resulting array would be quite large. Quite powerful. This is your task.
Alone it will not be enough. Coordination and timing is needed. Observations must be made simultaneously.
Your window will be small. Five minutes at most. But windows may be reopened. And the distance between observer pairs will be key.
There will always be limitations in clarity, so the results must be archived for study. Highly technical observers may be required. Detailed frequency analysis is recommended.
Everything that belongs to us will be ours, but only if we create the capacity to receive it.”

From what I can make out of it, the more people there are viewing the page at the same time, the image on the left gets clearer. In other words, in order to learn more about Destiny, Bungie wants you to make this viral. I won’t say to go out and share it, since I don’t forced viral marketing, but NUReviews will cover any new information we get as soon as we get it (no matter how long it takes).

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for Xbox 360 to Stream Directly to Twitch.TV

I didn’t think I would ever be giving BLOPS 2 any sort of praise on this site, until today that is. Twitch.tv, one of the largest video game streaming sites (we use it ourselves), announced that they have made a partnership with Activision and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 to broadcast your gameplay, from your Xbox 360, directly to your twitch.tv channel without any extra hardware needed. Here are some of the features listed in the press release.

  • Connect to your Twitch account from within Call of Duty: Black Ops II
  • Broadcast freely and direct to your Twitch channel
  • Webcam enabled for picture-in-picture broadcasting with Xbox Kinect
  • Automatically share your live feed to Facebook and Twitter

Some of the previous games in the Call of Duty franchise has offered features that allowed a player to upload gameplay clips directly to YouTube. But this is pretty big news. For now, I would imagine a massive influx of BLOPs 2 players to show up on Twitch.tv (as if there weren’t enough already.) But if developers decide to make this a more common feature in future games, like in MOBAs or fighters, this could be a start of a new wave of gaming entertainment.

This feature will also soon be available for the Playstation 3 and PC.
