A new trailer of the Dirty Harry game for PS3 and Xbox 360 gives you a good look at the character model for the legendary cop.
Published by Warner Bros Interactive and developed by The Collective (who did the recent Da Vinci Code game ), Dirty Harry puts you in control of Clint Eastwood's borderline-psycho cop Harry Callahan as he polices the streets of San Francisco.
The game fits into the Dirty Harry timeline somewhere between the first and second films, but WB has so far been quite
The Final Fantasy series gets its first in-your-face action game this August when Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII arrives. Set to fit another puzzle piece into the complex and ongoing saga of Final Fantasy VII, it offers up a whole new take on the series.
That's evidenced by these new screenshots, which showcase the beguiling and sexy Rosso - as well as what demonic cover boy Vincent Valentine looked like in his past as a member of the Turks. His tenure as a member of the Shinra company's

2K Games has released a trailer of the Da Vinci Code, the game based on the film that's based on the Dan Brown book about Jesus and stuff.
The trailer highlights the fact that while the game will obviously follow the plot of the book/film, there are far more puzzles and secrets to unravel than will be cracked by Tom Hanks in the film or Robert Langdon in the book.
It also demonstrates the type of detective
Nobody expected Final Fantasy to become a shooter. And when it did, the lack of confidence seemed... justified. The Japanese version of the game showed that the developers, while great at transferring the brilliant world of Final Fantasy VII to the PS2 with its atmosphere intact, didn't quite understand how to make a tight and playable shooter. Well, somebody at Square Enix noticed the complaints. The English version of Dirge of Cerberus has been tweaked and modified for the tastes of US
Rocket Slime. It doesn't sound like it means much, but actually it's a very interesting new game from Square Enix. Though it's an offshoot of the turn-based Dragon Quest RPG series, this game is more like Zelda. You'll adventure through dungeons, rescue your friends, and attack enemies head-on. Well, not exactly head-on, as you're a little blue slime without definable features except a face. You can do a surprising amount of damage, even
We've just emerged, blinking into the light, from a special showing of The Darkness, the comic-book inspired shooter with a seriously evil bent. Our demo began with hitman Jackie Estacado - the hero - lugging a corpse-filled body bag into the trunk of a van, and it only got better.
To cut a paranormal story short, on the night Jackie turned 21 he was possessed by an ancient demonic force called The Darkness, giving him some impressive powers. Shooting out the lights in a deserted restaurant
Capcom has treated us to a new crowd of Dead Rising shots, the zombie smacking, photo snapping action game which will be out for 360 in December.
The new shots show Frank West dispatching zombies, but also making use of the various resources that can be found in the shopping mall he's trapped in. He can be seen taking refreshment (drinking from the bottle!) in the supermarket and trying on different clothes available from numerous
Hide the cattle and cover your behind - the aliens are back. Apparently, his boss Pox has been shot down and captured by the Russians, so now the Furon warrior Cryptosporidium 137 has to conquer the Earth all over again - but this time, amid the free-love movement of the 1960s.
The biggest and best news about this spoofy, darkly comic actioner is that it has adopted a more free-form, open-world approach. The first game was actually very linear, and required you to solve each mission a certain

Like it or loathe it, Dead or Alive: Xtreme 2 is headed to Xbox 360, and Tecmo's unabashedly sexy trailer hints at several of the new mini-games that take the series beyond just its beach volleyball origins.
New elements include a water slide game, a tug of war on floating pool platforms and the back-to-back Hip Wrestling game, where your only goal is to grind your opponent off balance and send them off the platform with a splash. Volleyball, hopping and casino games will return as well, since
