Disney has talked about releasing an open-world platform game that incorporates a wide variety of Disney characters and worlds, called Disney Infinity.
The game is much like Skylanders, a game that has players use action figures interact with the video game. The game developers stated that when the game is released the three core worlds that players can utilize are Pirates of the Caribbean, Monster’s University and The Incredibles. More characters and world’s will be added over time, but in the mean time you can develop your own worlds within the game.
Hopefully Disney considers adding some Marvel and Star Wars characters to the line-up.
In Menlo Park, California, Facebook CEO and Founder Mark Zuckerberg announced at a press conference that Facebook is beta-testing a new search engine for the site called Graph Search. This feature allows users to search by specific topic on the site and help make new connections with other users.
The new feature allows users to search by topics such as, “Star Wars,” or, “Hiking,” and one can see which of your friends enjoy the same activities.
There were rumors of a Facebook smartphone release, so when the Graph Search was announced it received mixed reviews at first.
The search does allow users to search people who aren’t currently on your friends list, but Facebook does retain the already set-in-place privacy settings.
For those of you who have a thing for mangled bodies, a product for you has hit!
The special edition of Dead Island: Riptide comes with a statue of severed female torso (boobs left intact and unmarred of course).
Fans of the game would have been able pre-order the bloodied upper body “Zombie Bait” edition assuming that they live in either Australia or select European countries.
However the inclusion of the torso has caused such an upoar in the gaming community that the company responsible, Deep Silver, has released an apology stating:
“We deeply apologize for any offense caused by the Dead Island Riptide “Zombie Bait Edition”, the collector’s edition announced for Europe and Australia. Like many gaming companies, Deep Silver has many offices in different countries, which is why sometimes different versions of Collector’s Editions come into being for North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia.
For the limited run of the Zombie Bait Edition for Europe and Australia, a decision was made to include a gruesome statue of a zombie torso, which was cut up like many of our fans had done to the undead enemies in the original Dead Island.
We sincerely regret this choice. We are collecting feedback continuously from the Dead Island community, as well as the international gaming community at large, for ongoing internal meetings with Deep Silver’s entire international team today. For now, we want to reiterate to the community, fans and industry how deeply sorry we are, and that we are committed to making sure this will never happen again.”
The torso was unavailable for pre-order in the U.S. where gamers can pre-order the “Rigor Mortis” edition that comes with a zombie hula girl bobble figurines, a zombie arm bottle opener, and a wooden keychain.
It’s still unclear whether or not Deep Silver is still going to sell the statue or not, but that’s not going to stop you guys from perusing for it on E-Bay am I right?
What do you think about the Zombie Torso? Is it crazy or is it boobs?
