game: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
news | 05/05/06 | Aaron Stanton
Jack Thompson has earned a reputation for championing legislation restricting video games. He's appeared on news shows like CNN, often presenting what many would argue is a one-sided assessment of the state of the game industry. Now, he's booking appointments for talk show appearances over the recent Oblivion re-rate issue. In a press release sent to GamesFirst, Jack Thompson makes himself available for talk show interviews. The press release contains huge and obvious factual errors, a tactic that's been used by Jack Thompson repeatedly in the past. Still, you have to love quotes like, "(The Oblivion nudity) is not a modification or "mod" of the game by gamers. It is an unlocking of content that was put there by Take-Two with the unlocking code provided by the developer!" If you're up for a laugh, or to just be really pissed off, read the full press release.
game: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
news | 04/07/06 | Aaron Stanton
A post from Bethesda Softworks in the official Oblivion forums indicates that not only will the next downloadable mod for Elder Scrolls IV be a full quest, it will also be less expensive than the Horse Armor modification currently available. A quest called The Orrery is expected to be available within the next week, and will include a new location (the Imperial Orrery in the Arcane University), new rewards, and new powers that are based on the phases of the moon. The better content for the price will hopefully help lessen player concerns that Bethesda intends to offer minor modifications at high prices. Unlike individual items, a quest is something that might be worth paying for. Hopefully.

How can you bring Scrabble into the 21st Century? Add a wild card. WildWords is a revamped version of Scrabble that is much more than a revamped version of Scrabble. In WildWords, the "blank letter" tile is replaced with an asterisk (*) tile that can represent one or several letters. That single tweak (among others) is enough to make WildWords a whole new game experience, and it's made believers of us here at GF! Get the full story on this indy board game right here.
game: Hacking the PSP
review | 01/28/06 | Shawn Rider
The PSP hacking and homebrew communities are lively places, and there are weekly advances in the effort to add features and content to our PSPs. Sometimes these advances come even too rapidly for us to keep up with, and we can't imagine tackling a book about PSP hacking: How could you write something that won't be totally outdated a few months after its release? The answer is still not clear to us, but we've finally found a PSP book worth reading. Auri Rahimzadeh's Hacking the PSP is the best PSP hacking and modification book we've seen so far. If you're the pulp-and-ink kind of tinkerer, skip the others and head directly for this one. Shawn has the full review here.

Surely much to Sony's chagrin, those clever hackers have done it again. SonyXTeam has released a Firmware Downgrader for the PSP that will downgrade version 2.0 firmware to 1.50, which enables gamers who have recently bought the system to downgrade their firmware and use homebrew PSP utilities and play homebrew PSP games. This allows new PSP owners to join the rest of us playing Game Boy Advance games while we wait for something decent to come out. It sure beats watching movies on the thing!
