Rising Star Games Reveal 2009 Line-Up

Rising Star Games Reveal 2009 Line-Up 50°
311w ago - Rising Star Games has today revealed its line-up for 2009.

Consisting of over ten exciting new titles from Japan, the selection includes casual titles Harvest Fishing, Animal Kororo and Mah-Jongg, highly anticipated Role-Playing Games Steal Princess, My World My Way and Avalon Code as well as the impressive Rygar: The Battle of Argus and Valhalla Knights: Eldar Saga.

The 2009 line-up will also continue to be promoted under the 'Home of Japanese Games' campaign, which runs for the duration of the year.

Steal Princess (Nintendo DS, May 22nd 2009)

Accidentally triggering a booby trap which leaves Anise unconscious, the young thief awakens in the clutches of the King of Albyon. Mistaking Anise for Electronic Theatre Imagea descendent of the legendary Hero of Albyon, the king offers her an ultimatum: free the prince, who was captured by the ancient Demon King, or be convicted as a thief and locked away for life.

Steal Princess aims to break the mould as a Puzzle/Platformer hybrid by offering an intense single player campaign spread over more than 150 levels of increasing complexity. Once the player completes this mode they can then jump into the in-depth level creator, allowing them to determine the layout of the level and where monsters appear, place moving...
 

Researchers Use PS3 Cluster to Reveal an Internet Security Flaw

Researchers Use PS3 Cluster to Reveal an Internet Security Flaw 400°
322w ago - Update: Verisign says it's stopped using MD5, as of around noon Pacific time. To quote:

"We're disappointed that these researchers did not share their results with us earlier," writes Tim Callan, "but we're happy to report that we have completely mitigated this attack."

Is there anything the PlayStation 3 console can't do? From stopping cancer to simulating black hole collisions... and now breaking Internet security?!

A team of researchers from the U.S., Switzerland and the Netherlands have found a way of bypassing the security of digital certificates provided by companies like Verisign. These digital certificates help transmit your credit card information on the Internet in a secure manner.

By using 200 PS3 systems linked together, researchers were able to do the math that helped them decrypt the MD5 hash that's used by Verisign. The researchers would be able to mimic online retail sites, potentially stealing tons of valuable information from consumers. It appears researchers want the hash to be replaced by a more potent one.

Finally, it's unrealistic to expect hackers...

GPU Ray Tracing: New Pictures Reveal Current Possibilities

GPU Ray Tracing: New Pictures Reveal Current Possibilities 50°
335w ago - It is commonly known that Nvidia showed a Bugatti Veyron at the Full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 running a 30 fps - inclusive anti aliasing and the multiple refractions common in ray tracing.

Unfortunately this requires a Quadro-Plex 2100 D4 with four G92 based GPUs to be calculated.

Now there is additional material available in an Nvidia presentation. Here not only pure ray tracing is introduced, but also examples for Hybrid rendering, like mixing rasterisation and ray tracing.

The developers of the Nvidia demo themselves say that both systems are used. Additional info can be found at Nvidia's developers' site.

Nvidia: Hybrid rendering example below, and more screenshots can be seen at the link at the top of this article!
