Call of Duty Black Ops 'Escalation' DLC out now

The Call of Duty: Black Ops "Escalation" DLC is available now on Xbox 360 for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15). The pack contains five new maps and ... wait, wait, this totally deserves its own paragraph. And: "Call of the Dead". It's a new zombie mode map featuring Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy: The Vampire Slayer), Robert "Freddy Krueger" Englund, the ever-present Danny Trejo (Machete) and The Walking Dead's Michael Rooker -- oh yeah, and an undead George Romero.

Kinect hacked to play portal 2

Portal 2 is a game I definitely wanted to ship with motion controls, especially since the controls are basic enough that it could be an enhancement instead of simply catering to casual gaming. Well, apparently I wasn’t the only one. Brad Cooley hacked his Kinect using the FAAST toolkit, which made it possible for him to use hand gestures to control Portal 2.
