news | 05/09/06 | Shawn Rider
Microsoft has announced Xbox Live Anywhere, which will unify gaming on Windows Vista, Xbox 360 and Windows Mobile devices.

Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII Review
game: Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII
review | 05/07/06 | Matt James
Ubisoft\'s Blazing Angels has a lot to overcome: It\'s another WWII game, and there was a little game for the original Xbox called Crimson Skies that made \"a bit\" of a splash. Fortunately, it has some spectacular graphics, and the air combat focus opens up parts of the war that are generally not exploited. Still, there are some flaws, and Blazing Angels has proven to be a tricky evaluation for our man, Matt. Check out his review here.

Xbox Can Blog: 360Voice and the Internet of Things
game: Xbox 360
feature | 05/04/06 | Shawn Rider
Last March at the O\'Reilly Emerging Tech Conference, Bruce Sterling spoke about the concept of \"blogjects\"-- objects that generate data about their use and existence across space and time. What does that have to do with games? Two programmers have taken the concept, combined it with the Xbox Live game data feed generated by Xbox 360s everywhere, and have created a service that allows your Xbox to blog. Check out our coverage here.

Pre-E3: Lost Planet Preview
game: Lost Planet
preview | 05/01/06 | Chris Martin
E3 is on the horizon, and we\'re all aching to see what is coming down the road for the future of gaming. Right now the inventive minds behind Onimusha and Devil May Cry are working hard on Lost Planet for the Xbox 360. Large robots played a role in the launch of the original Xbox with MechAssualt, and now Capcom hopes to use big robots again to push the Xbox 360 firmly into the next generation of gaming. With seamless environments and a mix of gameplay styles (in-Mech and on foot), Lost Planet might be just the thing to keep the Xbox 360 fresh and selling strong come December. Though it\'s a ways off, we\'re still eager to play some of this incredible looking actioneer. Read why inside!

Driver: Parallel Lines Review; Return of the Wheelman
game: Driver: Parallel Lines
review | 04/25/06 | Chris Martin
The Driver series that flourished on the PlayStation took a hit below the belt with the release of Driver 3. Now, Driver: Parallel Lines is back, brought to you by Atari and the men and women at Reflections. Is the fourth iteration in the Driver series the return to greatness we\'ve all been expecting and hoping for? Or does Driver: Parallel Lines only offer what we\'ve seen before at mediocre levels? Chris Martin has the final word inside.

In Search of a Cure for Vampirism in Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
game: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
how-to | 04/18/06 | Chris Martin
Oblivion is one of the first games to really be a system seller for the Xbox 360 (that is, if you can find a 360). One of the quirks of the game is the ability to contract diseases - more specifically, you can contract Vampirism. The quest for a cure is one of the longest and most complicated of Oblivion, and also one of the most interesting. You\'ll find yourself weighing the trade-off between huge stat-bounces and the ability to withstand sunlight and quick-travel between towns. If you\'re a little confused about what Vampirism does for you, does against you, and how to cure it, Chris Martin\'s guide to curing vampirism is for you.

XViD 360
news | 04/13/06 | Tristan Mayshark
If you have a PC running Windows Media Center Edition and an XBox 360, you already have access to a slick UI that you can use to stream media to your 360. Unfortunately, Microsoft severely limited what video codecs are supported out of box to Windows Medio Video and ASF. Fans of alternative formats like Xvid and DivX were simply out of luck. Thankfully, the people that brought us the Xbox Media Center have come to our rescue with a free download that lets you play a wide variety of formats on your Xbox 360. Take a look to see how it works.

Monsterous Connections for the Xbox 360
game: Monster Cables
review | 04/05/06 | Tristan Mayshark
Monster has produced a series of cables for the Xbox 360 console, and without hesitation it can be said that they are the best 360 A/V cables presently available. The design is very nice, the cables are quite long, and the signal quality is excellent. But are they worth the extra bucks? Check in with Tristan\'s review to find out.

Ice Age 2: The Meltdown
game: Ice Age 2: The Meltdown
review | 04/03/06 | Laurie Taylor
Ice Age 2: The Meltdown is the movie tie-in for the major motion picture of the same name. It\'s got cuteness and some personality, but in general it fails in pretty much all the ways that counts: It\'s probably too short, too simple and too repetitive for all but the youngest of children. Read a full consideration of Ice Age 2: The Meltdown in Laurie\'s review.
