Rumor: IGN to launch StarCraft II professional gaming league


Rumors with a little bit of evidence have hit the internet that seem to indicate that gaming media company IGN may be planning to launch its own professional gaming league, with Blizzard's sci-fi RTS game StarCraft II at the center of it.

Starcraft-themed web site TeamLiquid.net reports via Korean-based web sites that IGN will launch such a league with a prize pool of between $150,000 to $200,000. In addition there is a IGN Pro League web site already set up that seems to be counting down towards a launch around midnight Eastern time on Tuesday.

If true this would be the latest attempt to launch a US-based pro gaming league. At the moment only Major League Gaming has been successful at staying afloat with other ventures like the Cyberathlete Professional League, the Championship Gaming Series and the World Series of Video Games all closing up shop in the past few years.

Planetside Next to get more resources despite Sony Online layoffs


Sony Online got hit earlier this week with mass layoffs and the total shutdown of three of its five studios, along with the cancelation of The Agency. Prior to the layoffs Sony Online head man John Smedley had been stating that the upcoming revivial of the sci-fi FPS MMO Planetside would launch a beta at the end of the first quarter or the beginning of the second quarter.

The bad news? Smedley told fan site Planetside Universe that the launch of PlanetSide Next "will be out a little later in the year." The good news is that Smedley also said that more resources would be put into the game and "we are pulling out all the stops to make it great." There are also hints that more info on this move will be revealed sometime next week.

What would a female version of Duke Nukem be like?


Recently there was a bit of controversy over the Capture the Babe multiplayer mode that will be in the upcoming Duke Nukem Forever game. The mode will have players hold the babe in question and if she started becoming antsy, the player is suppose to slap them (gently) on her behind. That caused some to be critical of the mode, saying any kind of physical force on a female was sending the wrong message.

In a new chat with Computer and Video Games, Gearbox Software's Randy Pitchford defends Duke's behavior towards women, saying, " ... he actually loves women and will put himself to great risk to make sure that they're safe. That's the whole premise of the game." He added, "I think it'd be really interesting some day to see what a female version of Duke would be like. Maybe that's a game." Indeed that would be a game; anyone want to make it?
