These shots show the new continent of Cantha, a fascinating Asian-inspired land. This country has seas of solid jade, a hostile petrified forest and an atmospheric mix of Eastern mysticism, karmic-like teachings and a seedy, unwholesome underbelly to the
Take 2, parent company of publisher Rockstar, has announced that Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, originally a PSP exclusive game, will be released for PlayStation 2 later this year.

Gears of War, Epic Entertainment's super high-tech FPS for Xbox 360, has some of the most toothsome enemies we've seen for a long time ... just take a look at these new shots for the proof.
A brawny but thinky game, Gears of War is certainly looking like a must-have 360 shooter, employing the next-gen hardware's technical power to create stunning and atmospheric worlds, not to mention the ugly devils you can see here.

Electronic Arts has finally confirmed a release date of 24 March for its delayed crime game The Godfather, based on the Mario Puzo book and 1972 film of the same name.
EA originally had its videogame adaptation of the classic gangster film down for an autumn 2005 release but decided that the developer needed more time on the ambitious
EA continues its drip feed of info on The Godfather as it outlines how the game's 'heat' system works with pursuing cops, and how the district of New Jersey looks to the Corleones.
Unsurprisingly, the heat system works in a similar way to the wanted level in GTA but, instead of it being displayed with stars, police shields are used.

Ubisoft has released new screens from the next-gen version of its upcoming Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, highlighting some environments beyond the Mexico City section we've previously seen.
