Everybody's favorite real-life block-puzzler is due to arrive on Wii and DS this November, courtesy of Atari and Atomic Planet. It seems like the ideal application for the tactile goodness of Nintendo's current hardware, provided Atomic Planet can keep a steady hand, and doesn't let it all come tumbling down in a fit of drunken giggling.
Both solo and multiplayer modes are offered, and "sophisticated" physics are promised (as opposed to "poorly-dressed" ones). It'll be interesting to see just
We've known about the existence of a Jackass tie-in since last May, but it wasn't until earlier in the year that we got first images of how the game would look on PSP.
Now we've scored first images of the game on PS2 and - no surprises - it looks much the same, except no longer in slightly lower res widescreen format.
The premise of the game sounds simple, much like its protagonists. You take part as one of the troupe of modern day circus freaks as they attempt to inflict as much pain and
A minor glitch that prevented gamers from using an unlockable dashboard theme and gamer pictures in Jetpac Refuelled has been fixed with a new update. Rare released an official statement on its official site, acknowledging the technical blip, and apologized. To install the update you are actually required to delete the game you have already downloaded and completely re-download the now-fixed version.
Don't worry though, it won't cost you a penny, and your save game and leaderboard status will
Eidos is viewing the success of its naval combat game Battlestations: Midway as reason to warrant a sequel, it's emerged. It was also reaffirmed in the report that a Just Cause sequel is in development.
Eidos was unavailable for comment on either sequel at the time of writing, however the producer on Battlestations: Midway, Klaude Thomas, did hint at potential content for a follow-up when we talked to him at the end of last year. It's likely that the sequel will be returning us to WWII,
The funny thing about inventing a genre of videogames is that, until it becomes completely played out, every game that emulates your formula is going to be attached to your name. Games that feature a wide-open, freely explorable world, for example, will have a hard time avoiding the label of "Grand Theft Auto clone," especially if their worlds are littered with vehicles to steal and drive.
In the six years since Grand Theft Auto III, a slew of games have tried to become "the next GTA," but so
This Wednesday the newest addition to the ever-growing Xbox Live Arcade collection will be available to download. Jetpac Refuelled is a remake of the classic 80s arcade game Jetpac, but to make it extra-explosive, Rare has added some special ingredients to fuel the fire.
As a galactic rocket test pilot you'll have a difficult job ahead of you. Don't worry about the astrophysics involved - those little details have been taken care of by Rare. You will be more focused on blasting a path through
Following the lead of Activision, BioWare and pretty much every other notable company in PC gaming, Eidos has decided to provide a number of its biggest titles through Valve's Steam.
Recent releases Just Cause and Battlestations Midway are up for download on the service, along with games in the Hitman, Tomb Raider and Commandoes series. This year's new releases are also planned to appear in
Yes, Jetpac is back - and on Xbox Live Arcade very soon, just as we expected after a rating website listed Jetpac Refueled for launch on Xbox 360. But what we weren't expecting, and what this new video reveals, was that it would look so brilliant!
Check it out!
Jetpac Refueled's glossy and gleaming visuals are instantly at home alongside other Arcade greats like Geometry Wars and, er, the rest. How long now until we see another Rare opus - that is, Goldeneye - lighting up our lives on some
Developer THQ has officially announced the sequel to 2005's street racer Juiced, heading to PC, PS3, 360, PS2 and PSP, following earlier reports on the game this week.
Juiced 2 is based around the Hot Import Nights series of car shows, and will include race and drift racing modes along with large amounts of customization options.
There's also a "Driver DNA" system that "molds" the racing traits of players and then makes them downloadable to race against in events, though we're not quite sure
The sequel to urban racer Juiced has been revealed via Swedish games mag, Gamereactor, even though publisher THQ has yet to publicly confirm its existence.
Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights is being developed for a September 2007 release on PC, PS3, Xbox 360, PS2, and PSP, potentially going head-to-head with a new version of EA's Need For Speed series.
The action takes place across various European cities, and there will be a roster of over 90 tuned-up motors to pimp. The game will be based around
