Not unlike a plucky RPG hero hacking his way through bigger and badder bosses, 2006 mobile phone smash Orcs & Elves is leveled up and raring to take down the big and bad (actually cute and portable) DS. The first screens have arrived, and they attest to improved graphics on the Nintendo portable, as well as alleviate any anxiety as to whether gold, a dragon, and a glowing blue sword will be featured in the game.

An arcade game called Arm Spirit has been recalled in Japan after three people suffered a broken arm while playing it - with further unreported cases likely.

(the company who brought the world Princess Crown and Odin Sphere) can't see how people could manage to sustain such an injury while playing it. All 150 machines have been recalled and will be investigated for possible malfunction.

Sorry PS3 owners, but it appears you'll have to spend several, several days gazing upon your PC and Xbox 360 cousins in envy as they get to grips with latest offerings from Valve Software.
According to a report on IGN, the PS3 version of Half-Life 2: Orange Box will release "a few weeks later" (November 13 US) than Orange box for PC and Xbox 360 (October 9

Weve known about the existence of Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising for some time now, and have been eagerly waiting new information about Codemasters' ultra detailed shooter ever since.
Luckily for us, Germanys Leipzig game conference has come to the rescue. Point your sights south and you can witness the brief, but explosive trailer that was recently shown at the show for yourselves. After that hit the images tab for even more visual
Okami is one of PS2's best adventure games in our opinion and if designer Hideki Kamiya has anything to do with it, there'll be more epic wolf soon.
Kamiya has a sequel in mind, and has revealed that it's something he'd really like to do. But unfortunately for Okami nuts, it's not his decision to make, so his hands are ultimately tied for the time being according to Kotaku.
Meanwhile, Capcom's Kenji Infane is considering porting the PS2 title to Wii - something which had been rumored and
For the LARPer on the go, EA and id Software have foretold the coming of Orcs & Elves II, the sequel to one of last year's best received mobile games. Even more relevant, they've announced the original is headed to the Nintendo DS. While the mobile version is getting the sequel treatment, the better-than-perfectly-suited DS is getting an expanded, exclusive version of the original.
Last year, Orcs & Elves won several "Mobile Game of the Year" awards for its well executed combination of epic

Codemasters says of the demo, "Don the Overlord's illustrious armor, assemble a team of fighter minions and head off for a session of serious destruction in the once tranquil area of The Mellow Hills.

New gameplay footage from Triumph Studios' PC and Xbox 360 game Overlord, which is being labelled "Pikmin meets Fable," has emerged from the bowels of Codemasters HQ.
In the game, you play an Overlord attempting to conquer a fantasy world and restore his Dark Tower to its former glory to become the biggest, baddest ruler in town. Helping the Overlord out are minions under your control that you can use to do the likes of attack enemies, push obstructions out the way and even boost your health
An overwhelming majority of gamers are male, so it makes perfect sense for every marketing team in the world to target their software at young guys. And what do all men ages 18 to one zillion love? Girls, gore and big loud machines. If they could make a game about a firefighting bikini squad that hunts down zombies in a decked-out sex/fire truck, world peace would be declared. But until that day, we have to settle with regular old T & A.
Developers are well aware of this, so occasionally
