    By hornet,
    Source: Yahoo Games Never underestimate the power of an outraged fan base. Bowing to pressure from a loud segment of players, Bioware has announced that changes are in the works for the controversial ending to role-playing smash Mass Effect 3. Details about those plans will be revealed next month. In a post on the companies blog, Bioware co-founder Dr. Ray Muzyka said the criticisms were "incredibly painful" to the team, which had hoped to please fans with the game. "The passionate reaction of some of our most loyal players to the current endings in Mass Effect 3 is something that has genuinely surprised us," he wrote. "This is an issue we care about deeply, and we will respond to it in a fair and timely way. … Exec Producer Casey Hudson and the team are hard at work on a number of game content initiatives that will help answer the questions, providing more clarity for those seeking further closure to their journey." The players who weren't happy with the ending of the game have been quite effective in voicing their displeasure. A ' Retake mass Effect 3' facebook page has amassed over 50,000 supporters, and an associated Twitter account Hidden Content Like this post to see the hidden content. has over 5,000 followers. One player even complained to the Federal Trade Commission, saying the endings amounted to false advertising on Bioware and EA's part. While Muzyka addressed the criticisms directly, he did note that the larger reaction to the game has been positive. The changes, he said, won't come at the artistic expense of the game. And he made it clear that the attacks that have accompanied the complaints will have to stop -- immediately. "We're working hard to maintain the right balance between the artistic integrity of the original story while addressing the fan feedback we've received," he said "[However]. some of the criticism that has been delivered in the heat of passion by our most ardent fans, even if founded on valid principles, such as seeking more clarity to questions or looking for more closure, for example — has unfortunately become destructive rather than constructive. We listen and will respond to constructive criticism, but much as we will not tolerate individual attacks on our team members, we will not support or respond to destructive commentary."

    Source: egmnow Sony has officially announced LittleBigPlanet Karting and has released a debut trailer. The game is a collaboration between Media Molecule and United Front Games, and is due out for PlayStation 3 later this year. “With LBP’s powerful and diverse toolset in their capable hands, LittleBigPlanet Karting is sure to be an adventure that both LBP fans and kart racing fans alike will enjoy!” reads a message from media Molecule on the PlayStation Blog. “We are very eager to see what you think of this union and especially excited to see what happens now that you have a 3D environment to create in! It’s the start of a whole new LBP world!” United Front Games senior producer James Grieve added, “Our goal with LBP Karting has been fairly simple – provide a fast-paced experience that captures the best of classic Karting gameplay, married with the unbridled creativity of LBP. This new adventure will be accessible to players of all ages and have all of the variety necessary to satisfy both the hardcore and more casual players.” If you’ve ever wanted to take your LittleBigPlanet creative skills and transfer them onto a racetrack then you are certainly in luck. The plan is to have the extensive creative tools present in the previous games available to be used on tracks and karts. An added bonus is the fact that now players won’t be stuck on a 2D plane for creation, they will have a whole 3D environment to work their magic in. What will the community create with this new freedom? We look forward to finding out.

    By MLS,
    Bloomberg reports that Apple's iPhone surpassed RIM's BlackBerry as the number one in Canadian smartphone shipments in 2011. RIM is based in Canada and has had strong loyalty amongst its customers. RIM has been on a decline since the launch of the iPhone and Android platforms with sales and profits dropping. RIM's worldwide numbers have been dropping precipitously in contrast to significant grown from iOS and Android. --Source: MacRumors.com Good riddance. I'm all for supporting local business, but the fact of the matter is that iOS and Android products are better than RIM products.

    Apple Patent Shows Self Configuring iPhone as a Universal TV Remote

    MLS
    By MLS,
    Apple patent applications tend to cover a broad set of topics, including many research items that never make their way out of the labs. A new one found this morning, however, is more interesting than usual given the recent rumors of an Apple television. The application is titled "Configurable Remote Control" and is detailed by PatentlyApple. In the application, Apple describes the use of the iPhone as a self-configuring universal remote for your home entertainment system. Specifically, they suggest using the iPhone's camera to take a photo of your existing remote, and then comparing that photo to a database of known remotes. Apple acknowledges the iPhone in question would also need IR transmission capabilities. The patent application is dated from 2010. Apple has been widely expected to use voice-recognition in their rumored Apple Television. As with many patent applications, we don't necessarily think this concept will make its way into production. Still, it shows Apple's research interests into home entertainment systems and seems relevant given the ongoing rumors of a Apple TV set. --Source: MacRumors.com Man this is so cool. I have like 3 remotes I have to use on a daily basis, and being able to control everything with my iPhone would be so awesome.
