Hooray for new galleries!


In our eternal quest to bring our readers (that's you!) the latest and greatest in internet technologies (these tubes don't run themselves, after all), Xbox 360 Fanboy is proud to announce the arrival of our new and improved gallery system. Our new gallery system supports higher resolutions and allows users to leave comments on individual images. In the standard view, a low resolution image appears on the left side of the screen with the description on the right. But, if you click "Hi-Res" on the upper right, you'll be taken to the full resolution version of the image. Seriously, on a scale of one to ten, how cool is that? The change is retroactive to all of our previous galleries, so if you want to leave a comment about, say, our Game Fuel gallery, you can! Please enjoy our new gallery system, and look forward to more gallery content in the future. Check out the gallery below to see all the new features for yourself.

X3F Fanpatch 1.2: introducing galleries!


As Xbox 360 Fanboy continues to grow, so do our website features. X3F is proud to announce the roll-out of image galleries! We've already rolled them into a handful of posts (see a sample gallery at the bottom of this post), but there is another exciting new feature as well, the Featured Galleries section. You can find this section on the right-hand side of Xbox 360 Fanboy. The Featured Galleries section shows off our most recent galleries and let's you peruse them at your leisure. Our new galleries allow us to share higher resolution images than before, and you can expect to see a lot more of them now that they've been fully implemented.

Go check 'em out and tell us what you think.

Gallery: Galleries FTW

New Mass Effect screenshots surface


Check out this eye candy for BioWare's new Mass Effect. Being the first title in an overarching trilogy, this futuristic game looks like it will provide Xbox 360 owners with solid narrative and then some. The release date is uncertain at this point, but you can be sure that everyone will know it when more information hits the scene.

Toronto's "Art of Xbox 360" pics and consideration


Geoff Martin heeded our call for pics from the "Art of Xbox 360" gallery show being held in Toronto's Blue Dot Gallery, except he did one better. He linked us to a piece he wrote for canada.com, slideshow included! He writes, "Wil Overton, an artist from UK-based Rare Games, and the lead concept artist for the Xbox 360’s Perfect Dark Zero, also doesn’t have much time for quibbling over definitions, or debates on what should or shouldn’t be considered 'art.' He said at the opening of "Play: The Art of the Xbox 360" on Thursday that he's thrilled to see his work hung on the walls of an art gallery."

On the other side of the net, Tony Walsh from Clickable Culture says, "If you happen to be at the Distillery this weekend, it couldn't hurt to drop by the Blue Dot Gallery to have a look, but I wouldn't recommend making a special trip just for the show. I think what we have here is a classic "post-release attention-span" grabber, geared towards retaining a semblance of public interest in the Xbox 360--in other words, this event isn't so much about art as it is about commerce."

Having not seen the show, I can only speculate, but I think Walsh's take sounds about right, but was their any doubt? All the games are published by Microsoft, and the show was advertised as being "Xbox 360" specific. We could also get into an argument about semantics--aren't many gallery shows about commerce and art?--though, this case takes that observation to an extreme, replacing enterprising artists with a Fortune 500 company.

Also found another gallery of images from photojunkie (via Flickr): Play: The Next Level of Gaming.

[Thanks, Geoff]

UPDATE: 360 Fanboy reader Zoltan posted his own review of the "Art of Xbox 360 exhibit", complete with pictures at YYZTech.ca. Thanks!
