Epic Games boss Mark Rein has revealed a spin-off project based on macho Xbox 360 sci-fi shooter and - wait for it - it's Gears of War Golf! Yep, COG squad hard-man Marcus Fenix takes a break from dismembering Locust hordes, ditching his chainsaw-equipped rifle for a sturdy graphite driver and steps to the green for a pleasant round of hit the ball. Unfortunately, this intriguing clash of muscle and swing has only been created as an internal project at Epic, so don't expect it be appearing on
Electronic Arts just announced their tie-in title for The Simpsons Movie, and the development team hopes to create "the most original game ever." We'll look past the fact that it's already culling ideas from a licensed property and just continue on with the news.
