Capcom has released a new video showing a little more of the destruction and violence you can expect to play out in their new Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor game that will be launching in June.
The new Capcom Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor game takes place in 2082 after the world has been devastated by a silicon-eating microbe. That’s has left the world lacking in computer technology.
Your mission in the game is to control Vertical Tanks, which are now the United States military primary attack force. The Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor game has been specifically designed by Capcom to be played with Microsoft’s Kinect motion controller, and will be arriving on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 on June 22nd.
You can check out the control aspects for the new Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor game in the earlier video released by Capcom in out previous post.

At NAB 2012 later this month from April 14th – 19th Eizo will be showcasing their latest high resolution monitor, that features a 4k display, sporting a resolution of 4,096 x 2,160 pixels.
The massive 36.4 inch Eizo FDH3601 monitor will deliver 10-bit colours, together with a 100 percent sRGB coverage in colour gamut as well as a “perfect smooth tone reproduction across the screen” say Eizo.
Other features of the Eizo FDH3601 monitor include a 16-bit lookup table supporting up to 278 trillion colours. Together with a maximum brightness of 700 cd/m2, and contrast ratio of 1,000:1 with a response time of 8 ms.
But as you might expect all this cutting edge technology and massive screen resolution come at a price, and in this case thats around $35,700.

L’istinto può prendere il sopravvento sulla ragione in certi momenti, e questo può succedere anche durante una partita di calcio a Fifa 12.
Dopo essere stato lasciato dalla propria fidanzata, si è trovato ad affrontare una brutta crisi esistenziale che lo ha portato a un lungo periodo di “astinenza”. Durante la partita in questione però ha deciso di dare libero sfogo alle proprie emozioni con l’attaccante della squadra avversaria, il tutto sotto lo sguardo attoniti di tutti i giocatori in campo…..
Ovviamente stiamo scherzando, godetevi il video.

That purple-striped Roku HD seen skulking about the FCC last month has now been observed in the wild by our friend Dave Zatz. It’s apparently on shelves now, with all the features of the box recently introduced as the Roku 2 HD, but without the 2. As he muses, Roku may be taking a “new iPad” style naming approach to its hardware going forward, a theory supported by the support site listing where it’s already elbowed out the old Roku 2 HD. As far as differences, it’s mostly the same with the exception of full size composite outputs around that should make it more friendly to HD-less environments, while the Bluetooth (for the optional gaming remote) and microSD slot options have been eliminated. We’ve heard from Roku that this refreshed model has a slightly larger footprint due to those composite jacks, but will stay at the same price of $59.99.
After the Flashback / Flashfake Mac trojan was exposed by Russian site Dr. Web, Apple has finally responded by publishing a support page about the issue and promising a fix. If you haven’t heard by now, the malware exploits a flaw in the Java Virtual Machine, which Oracle pushed a fix for back in February, but Apple didn’t patch until a botnet consisting of as many as 650,000 Macs was identified on March 4th. Antivirus maker Kaspersky has confirmed the earlier findings, and released a free tool affected users can run to remove the trojan from their computers. Other than the update already delivered for computers running OS 10.6 and 10.7 Apple recommends users on 10.5 and earlier disable Java in their browser preferences. What isn’t mentioned however, is when its fix is incoming or any timetable on its efforts with international ISPs to cut off the IP addresses used by the network. This is not the first timeMacs have fallen prey to malware and as their market share grows will likely not be the last, so don’t think just opting for OS X is automatically keeping you a step ahead security-wise. Check the links below for more information about what the malware does, and how to get rid of it.
It’s been about a year since YouTube took the betatag off of its live video streams and to celebrate it’s flipping the switch on a few new features. One major way to pull in better content is to allow its publishers to profit from it, and now they can either by charging viewers pay-per-view-style or through instream ads. On the backend they have improvements like a guided flow to follow before events go live and real time data breaking down their viewership by geography and format. Finally, Google is also provided Wirecast for YouTube Live free of charge, a bit of software that it says allows partners to do all the production (capture, switching between sources, live effects and overlays and more) necessary for “professional looking” live events. There’s more information available after the break, but as long as this means we never have to see another jump cut vlog then we’re all for it.

Might be interested in this latest video trailer released by BioWare showing a glimpse of what you can expect from the Mass Effect 3: Resurgence Pack today. Gamers in Europe will be able download the content on April 11th.
From today Mass Effect 3 owners can now download the first multiplayer expansion Mass Effect 3 Resurgence Pack for free.
Which adds new unlockable content: deadly weapons, new consumables, and powerful characters for each class in multiplayer, including the Asari Justicar, Batarian, Geth, and Krogan Battlemaster. As well as adding to new maps, called Firebase Condor and Firebase Hydra to the mix.
- Firebase Condor – A warzone outpost located on one of Palaven’s moons, Firebase Condor represents a crucial asset in the defense of the Turian homeworld, providing the beleaguered turian fleet with a place to refuel and repair. Its loss could grant the Reapers unparalleled access to the Inner Council Theatre.
- Firebase Hydra – Firebase Hydra is located in an old abandoned Quarian colony which humans took over when they originally settled the world of Ontarom. It has since been converted into a massive dam facility which powers the communications hub located at Firebase Dagger and the kinetic barrier which protects it. Without this critical power source, Systems Alliance communications within the entire theatre would go dark.
