Lost footage of Game Boy FPS Tyrannosaurus Tex is found

In 2001, Tyrannosaurus Tex, a first-person shooter for the Game Boy Color was all set to change the world as one of the only portable FPS games on the market -- the only problem is, it was never released, as publisher Eidos ...

Dead Space needs a break, SimCity launch woes and Thief!

In another casual discussion from Dtoid's virtual news room, I'm joined by Jordan Devore and Spencer Hayes to discuss the deflated rumor of a Dead Space development hiatus (one we kind of wish were true). Plus, SimCity's rocky launch demonstrates once again that you can't count on anybody to successfully launch an online-only game and the gang discusses the recently announced Thief reboot.

'Deus Ex: Human Defiance' is just the upcoming movie

When word got out about Square Enix trademarking Deus Ex: Human Defiance, some of us got a bit carried away. The name, in our defense, did seem like a rather fitting title for a potential follow-up to 2011's Human Revolution....

Deus Ex: Human Defiance trademarked by Square Enix

It looks like we'll be getting a sequel to Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Square Enix has taken out a trademark on Deus Ex: Human Defiance, and since the first game was rather successful, this isn't a huge surprise. Maybe th...

Eidos co-founder says next Xbox won't play used games photo
Eidos co-founder says next Xbox won't play used games
by Allistair Pinsof

Eidos co-founder Ian Livingston doesn't see a digital-only system this generation, but he suggests the next Xbox will require an always-on internet connection and will feature marked discs that prevent sharing games across systems.

"Broadband speed globally isn’t at a level that justifies digital-only.” Livingstone told MCV India. “So they’ve gone halfway [...] With the next Xbox, you supposedly have to have an internet connection, and the discs are watermarked, whereby once played on one console it won’t play on another. So I think the generation after that will be digital-only.”

We already occupy this reality with Steam, but it's still unsettling to see it come to consoles. Now we can all complain about DRM in unison. Livingston is only offering speculation, not facts, so let's hope Microsoft doesn't adopt such an anti-used games position, especially after Sony said they would not be pursuing such tech in the PS4, even though patents suggest otherwise.

GDC: Deus Ex: HR's bosses could have used 'more effort'

Considering the potential for great, inventive boss fights, it was unfortunate to see these sequences as one of the weaker elements of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. During a talk at GDC called "Reimagining a Classic," gameplay d...
