iPad AsphaltYesterday, many rumors were put to rest with the release of the Apple iPad. People were excited, joyful, angry, disappointed, or just plain indifferent. Whatever you stance, you had some kind of reaction to Apple’s announcement of the iPad. Is it a giant iPhone? A female hygiene product? A cool netbook replacement? That’s for you to decide.

Whatever iPad really is, and regardless of what it’s competing against, one thing is clear–Apple wants to make a dent in the gaming industry.  Developers and publishers were present at yesterday’s conference, including Gameloft and Electronic Arts (EA,) to show off their games running on the iPad, including a full-screen version of Need for Speed.

Mass Effect 2Casting is a very important part of film production, used to attract movie goers into theaters.  Similarly, BioWare is hoping to achieve this same kind of effect by casting big names into their upcoming title, Mass Effect 2. Sure, they are also hired to bless the game’s characters with talent, grace and—in some cases—even mannerisms. Names such as comedic actor Seth Green, Chuck stars Yvonne Strahovski and Adam Baldwin, Star Trek’s Michel Dom, Battlestar Galactica’s Tricia Helfer, Carrie-Anne Mos, and even Martin Sheen are part of this all-star game cast.  If the Mass Effect series never tickled your fancy, these names will surely spike your interest, even if it’s just curiosity.

Dead Space 2

Good news for you survival horror fans (jeez, is that ever a trite opening line): EA has officially announced Dead Space 2 for you to speculate over until they release more information. According to the press release, the game will star Issac Clarke from the original game as he continues to kill more horrifically deformed Necromorphs, frolic in zero gravity, and generally do more of what you loved from the stellar first installment. It’s being developed by Visceral Games, the folks behind the first game, and will hopefully feature the same amazing audio as before.

Anyways, all the pictures I could find from the first game were terribly violent, and as you know, my first and only concern is the children; So, enjoy this picture of an upside-down dog from upsidedowndogs.com. Fuzzy wuzzy!

Hit the jump for the full release and some high hopes.

They’ve released a boss trailer, along with interview snippets with the developers of the game, detailing what we should expect from the Wii version of Dead Space. Hit the video for the full scoop, but here’s a hint: just because this is a Wii title, don’t expect the horror elements to be any less impressive than they were in the original. We’re excited.

San Diego ComiCon gives us the opportunity to geek out on all things pop culture for four days – not including preview night. But we all know four days is never enough! held a summer showcase where we got access to demo most of their upcoming game titles without the sweating, over-crowding and amazing smell a comicon can offer.  The EA Summer Showcase was held at the Onyx in San Diego as somewhat of a pre-con treat.  Getting to play Brutal Legends while nibbling on some amazing free cheese and slider burgers is what I believe heaven will be like. 

But along with the cheese also came other great games: G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra, Left 4 Dead 2, The Saboteur, Dead Space Extraction, Dragon Age: Origins,  Hasbro Family Game Night 2, Littlest Pet Shop Online, Madden NFL 10,  MySims Agents, Need for Speed NITRO, NERF “N-Strike” Elite,  Spore Hero and Spore Hero Arena.

Spoilers? Brutal Legends can have my babies – like now.

Every convention has a booth that becomes the “hangout” or the “meet-up” booth for friends and crowds to gather after walking the show floor. At , the EA booth was certainly that spot. Located at the entrance of the South Hall with a stage ample enough to have three dance crews have dance offs, this booth became the ideal location. Not only did the girls working out with EA’s Active attract the crowds, but also great presentations like Real Time Worlds’ APB which had everyone sitting in awe. When you didn’t find me conversing with the many people I met up there, I was playing or watching others play games. Madden 10, Harry Potter, Dead Space Extraction, EA Active, Need for Speed Shift, G.I. Joe, Tiger Woods 10, Brutal Legends and NHL 10 are just some of the games that could be found at the show floor.
