Christmas '09 is cancelled, but early next year looks amazing.
We've had a fresh hands-on with a virtually finished build of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games and, in all honesty, can't wait for Christmas. There's something about the game that actually makes us want to be huddled around the telly with mince pies and sherry.
Unlike the Summer Olympic version, the new game is much less strict with its license. Sure, you've got traditional game modes which are fairly realistic
Before the Tokyo Game Show opened up to the public, EA unveiled the new Lust level from Dante’s Inferno. This unseen area focuses on Dante’s ascent through a dark tower to battle Cleopatra. She’s the boss of the level and one of the many damned figures depicted in the original epic poem. The tower is surrounded by the lust storm, a powerful force fueled by the carnal desires of the damned
One reason we like games is that the stakes are high. The good guys are really good, the bad guys are really bad, and the princesses are really doe-eyed. But sometimes, games manage to work in villains that operate in shades of gray… and other times, they accidentally make a villain out of the most sympathetic guy in the story.
There are a lot of myths and half-baked assumptions surrounding Mafia II – so let’s start by clearing them up. First off, this isn’t a GTA clone. It may have a crime theme, and have a limited amount of free-roaming, but it’s first and foremost a linear, story-driven experience. Secondly, it isn’t ‘just another gangster game’.

Most game ads are usually a bit rubbish. But we can forgive them, because whether pushing Z listers ‘enjoying’ entertaining interactive products or offending our ears with a cheesy, booming voiceover, most of them are just charmingly clueless. The following ads are guilty of a much worse crime, though. They all utterly adore themselves. Self-indulgent, self-loving bullshit, below you’ll find cynical commercials that have
Sixaxis control started off as a novelty, then became a chore. Then a joke. Now it's come full-circle to become a novelty again, with boob jiggle control in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 - surely the finest use of the technology we've yet seen
The tower defense genre is inching ever closer to over-saturation, so it's easy to be skeptical about a downloadable South Park themed tower defense game. After all, the South Park license hasn't exactly had much luck in the realm of videogames. And with a genre that is tough to set yourself apart in due to the sheer number of games being released, it's not hard to overlook South Park: Let's Go Tower Defense Play! But that would be a
A remake of an eight year old PC first-person shooter, Serious Sam HD is a game focused entirely on action. Though we were only able to spend time with the single-player portion of the game - it will also feature online co-op for up to four players - SSHD is certainly one fast-paced, bare bones shooter that is an absolute blast to play
Waiting sucks. Period. Fortunately, there is a cure. While many iPhone games lean towards the short, cute, and casual end of the spectrum, we’ve consulted the dark tome of Baphomet to summon forth a demonically delicious sampling of portable RPG gems capable of consuming voluminous amounts of time and possibly a few souls.
