Capcom Announces MotoGP 10/11

Capcom has announced that MotoGP 10/11 is now in development for a March of 2011 release window. The game is being developed by Monumental Games and promises to feature an all-new handling and physics engine for more realistic play as well as a greater level of customization so both experienced and new players can get off the ground racing more easily.

Worst Box Art of the Week Award: Remington Super Slam Hunting

Let’s take a moment to admire the awfulness of this week’s winner of our Worst Box Art of the Week Award (applause). This week’s winner is Remington Super Slam Hunting, which is being developed by Mastiff (Shimano Extreme Fishing, Deer Drive) in cooperation with Remington Arms. While the game is a budget title due out early next year, we can laugh at the box art now. Hunting is usually a solo sport, with many hours of tracking your quarry, running into dead ends, and other annoyances like going to the bathroom outside (perhaps that’s where the game’s subtitle, ‘Outdoor Action’) comes in to play).

Judging by this box art, however, this game looks a lot less about hunting and a lot more about stopping wave after wave of a coordinated, rabid-animal invasion. How else do you explain this mass of animals all charging the two poor hunters at once? Those guys are toast – one is armed with a long rifle and the other a shotgun. If I am going up against all those animals at once I want an M249 or a bazooka – which is, of course, the grizzly bear’s only weakness.

GTX-580 Announced – Awesome Product Announcement Video from EVGA

Two items of note in this post – first is that the new GTX-580 GPU has officially been announced today. Nvidia touts this new GPU as the fastest DX11 graphics card on the market thus far. The card is being manufactured by various hardware makers and is retailing for a pretty reasonably $499 to $599 (considering it is a brand-new GPU).

The second bit of business comes from the talented guys at EVGA, who have released the best GPU launch video that I have ever seen. Kudos to the crew over there who are responsible for this one.
