Delta Force Black Hawk Down: Team Sabre, a sequel to last year's Black Hawk Down military shooter, has been announced for a PS2 release this November.
With the original game letting you play through the infamous US Army incident in Somalia in 1993 - when rebels shot down a Black Hawk helicopter and trapped a large group of US troops - this sequel is actually more like an expansion.
In fact Team Sabre was an expansion on PC. But it does come with 24 new maps for the

Xbox 360 isn't exactly short of first-person shooters but a surprise X06 announcement sees Doom, the genre's granddaddy, hit Xbox Live Arcade.
Available now over the service, all four of the original Doom episodes (yes, four, including Ultimate Doom's Thy Flesh Consumed) can be played with up to four-player co-op. And, as it's the game that coined the term 'deathmatch', four-player killfests will also feature - which will likely take some adjusting to, being set
Treat your eyes to this first batch of in-game screens from Devil May Cry 4, the next-gen installment of the demon-bashing series.
The shots show the new playable character Nero in action using his special enemy-grabbing powers, and you can also see long-standing series frontman Dante, who makes an intriguing appearance in this PS3

Devil May Cry 4 will not feature Dante, the star of the three previous games in the series, as the main playable character and will take place between the original Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 2. The new lead character is called Nero, he has a demonic arm that draws enemies toward him and his swordplay will add a brand new element to the game.
All of these revelations come direct from Japanese gaming bible, Famitsu. The article reveals that DMC4's combo system will
We've got new footage from Dead or Alive: Xtreme 2, the suntanned sequel to Xbox's 'vacation simulator." Check the movies tab above to watch the two main events - volleyball and jet-skiing - as well as looks at four of the button-mashing minigames.
The volleyball could be mistaken as being taken from the first game - right down to having the same speech and animation (although the motion of hair and the DOA girls' more prominent assets have seen some attention) - but this is the first time the

First-person action-RPG Dark Messiah of Might and Magic will be available to download from Valve's Steam service in October at around $50 (or roughly £26) - saving you at least a tenner on the price of a shop-bought copy of the game. "I just can't wait to play it," says Valve honcho Gabe Newell. Neither can we, Gabe, neither can we.
To tempt non-Steamers into an offline purchase, though, publisher Ubisoft will release a limited edition of Dark Messiah of Might and
As many as 10 team members from the long, long-delayed Duke Nukem Forever have left developer 3D Realms over the past year, fuelling rumors that the game has finally been scrapped. But could it really mean that the game is actually nearing completion?
A development team disbanding over this period of time is a common enough occurrence in the games industry - but where this PC shooter's legendary delays are concerned, it's fuel to the fire that Duke Nukem Forever may never actually be
Many valid comparisons have been made between the upcoming first-person fantasy action title Dark Messiah of Might and Magic and the cross-platform epic Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. But today's treasure trove of media steers our view of Dark Messiah sharply away from the sofa-bound console-compatible games like Oblivion and squarely onto our high-resolution PC monitors.
While these new images (the rest are behind the Images tab) reveal that Dark Messiah is being made with only one platform in
About a month ago, we created our own movie showcasing Disgaea 2's elaborate, addictive battle system. Not to be outdone, publisher NIS has unleashed the first of many movies outlining various aspects of the gameplay - in this case, it's a closer look at the way your troops can throw down.
Hit the Movies tab up above for a look, and then head here for our hands-on preview of this never-ending tactical

It looks like Capcom is planning on turning Dead Rising - its incredible zombie mashing Xbox 360 action game - into a series, as it's asking gamers what they'd think of a sequel.
Despite not seeing a UK release until 8 September, Capcom is currently running a Dead Rising online survey in which one of the questions is: "If a sequel to this game were to be released, would you buy it?"
While this isn't exactly confirmation of another Dead Rising Capcom has always
