The Dungeon Masters behind the massively multiplayer role-playing adventure Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach have announced they are introducing a single-player mode to 20 of the dungeons surrounding Stormreach harbor.

New shots of the operatic space combat adventure DarkStar One have surfaced on the long range scanners today. You'll explore over 300 planets, nebulas and asteroid belts aboard the DarkStar One - the experimental spacecraft you've inherited by your murdered father. Unlike a standard role-playing game where your character would normally get a shiny new blaster pistol or a fancy hat, the ship itself is the game's main focus. This mysterious vessel is especially designed to accept any manner of
We've snagged a new video of Ubisoft's upcoming role-playing Dark Messiah of Might & Magic, (click the Movies tab above) which shows the bloody and brutal path of the warrior. The game is due for release on September 26.

Dark Messiah of Might & Magic, Ubisoft's crunchy first-person role-playing game, is launching a barrage of fantasy action this autumn and we've summoned a handful of new screens, showing some of the characters with whom you'll be trading words - and blows - during your adventure.

If someone gave you half a million bucks to hurry up and work faster, would it motivate you? The industry is now watching 3D Realms, the studio behind PC first-person shooter Duke Nukem Forever, to see if Take Two's financial incentive for getting the game completed and on sale before the end of this year has the desired effect.
And the reason for it? Well, if you're not aware of Duke Nukem Forever's tortuous and hilariously lengthy development period, then we reckon you're telling fibs.
Yuke's Company of America - the US branch of the Japanese developer behind the wrestling series WWE SmackDown! and Rumble Roses - today announced its first game, D1 Grand Prix. Due out in July, D1 will focus on the high-speed world of professional drift racing, a bold departure for a company usually associated with sweaty men and hot chicks tossing each other around a ring.
When it hits, D1 will star 39 different American and Japanese race drivers, as well as more than 40 licensed cars from
Ubisoft has released some beastly new screens from its upcoming first-person fantasy Dark Messiah of Might and Magic. Turns out that many of the monsters have their own complex relationships - while securing their freedom, Orcs discovered and attempted to train the Paokai dragons with only rumored success; and Necromancers pretty much control the Zombies and Ghouls at will - not to mention the enormous Undead Cyclops. Not all your enemies are quite so inhuman: City Guards go after anybody they
