We nabbed eight new screens of the upcoming summer release Overlord that show off the good perks that come with being bad. While it's not essential to play Overlord as an evil despot, it certainly sounds like the most fun way to conquer all those that stand in your path.

The distinctive and beautiful Okami, Capcom's god-who's-a-dog watercolor PS2 platformer, won't be turning up over here until September. But, like a news-hunting canine with a nose for updates, we've dug up a new gameplay video to remind you why Okami will be so special.

It's a good time to be a pirate. Captain Jack Sparrow is packing theaters once again this summer and game fans are getting not one, but two One Piece games later this year. And on top of that, we've got 16 brand new shots from the two-player beat 'em up Grand Adventure.
For more on the rubbery, fish-headed cast of pirate people, head over to our earlier preview.
A new "title update" has been released for the WWII-based shooter/strategy hybrid The Outfit designed to fix a few problems with online play. The list of "improvements" reads more like patch notes, as the bulk of them center on repairing malfunctioning multiplayer bits and retuning "Destruction on Demand" items and their cost. A number of improvements cover matchmaking and a few indicators of players' connection speeds have been implemented to keep unwanted latency (game chugginess) from
Okami is still a few months away from its US release, but Capcom has graced us with a new look at the weirdly beautiful platform-hopper that casts players as the sun goddess Amaterasu, who has taken the shape of a dog (possibly for tax
The Outfit and Burnout Revenge will drop their prices this weekend from $59.99 down to $39.99, according to director of Xbox Live programming Larry Hryb (better known as the blogosphere's Major Nelson).

Don't have 120 bucks to drop on all three? You should check out our reviews of The Outfit,
Pretty soon, you'll be able to play the entire Cartoon Network lineup of new-to-America anime. Granted, many of these games aren't too hot (Inuyasha, for one), but the last One Piece game surprised us all by being a mindless-but-fun pirate
