Activision has released a trailer of Tony Hawk's Project 8 featuring next-gen footage of the extreme sports game that will be released for PS3 and Xbox 360.
The trailer focuses on the skater's technique while he performs various tricks. Presented in slow-motion you get to see how the board moves through the air, how it's affected by the slightest flicks of the skater's feet and how the trucks creak and

THQ has released a handful of new shots of its forthcoming next-gen combat sim Frontlines: Fuel of War, which will be released for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 next year.
Frontlines is set in the near future during a conflict between the Western Coalition and the Red Star Alliance for control of the world's depleting fossil fuel reserves. And what better way to fight over limited fuel than with vehicle based combat...
The action is described as a vehicle based FPS that allows
We got to play a short level in John Woo Presents Stranglehold and we can't remember another game that made it so easy to feel like an action hero. While plenty of other games have complex controls and twin-gun, slow-mo shooter action, but film director John Woo literally invented the trick - and to slide across a table while firing two pistols non-stop in his game, all you need to do is bump into it and glide. Swinging from lanterns and running up staircase railings requires little more
It's not easy to get access to the BioShock theater deep in the 2K Games booth, but if you can get in, you'll see one of the best games of the show. The creators of the seminal spooky shooter System Shock 2 are calling BioShock the “spiritual successor” to the 1999 award-winner, but other than the pedigree and approach, the games are totally different. And BioShock is almost certainly unlike any first-person shooter you've seen.
BioShock takes place underwater, in an abandoned,
We've seen nothing of bloody dino-shooting game Turok since 2002's Turok Evolution - until today.
The T-rex-bothering series was recently picked up by Buena Vista Games and the company's Propaganda studio is currently developing both Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of an entirely new 'Rok. Even though it's over a year away from release, we've just been given behind-closed-doors access to the 360 version of the game at Buena Vista's E3 stand.
Players take on the role of the heavily-armed and,
Broadly, there are two kinds of RPGs out there - the ones like Oblivion that offer the player a wealth of freedom, and the Final Fantasy school that concentrate on tight storytelling and addictive battling. Enchanted Arms, coming from Japan, definitely aims toward Final Fantasy's style. The game stars university student Atsuma - whose glossy hair and vacant smirk mark him as true hero material. Actually, it's the fact that he has the power to control golems - mystical entities designed to fight
As the next-gen step for one of the biggest series ever created, Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is one of the most exciting games of E3 - not just because of the stunning visuals, but because of three little words that are heard at the end of the teaser trailer shown exclusively behind closed doors at the show: "Then they came." Command and Conquer is back, and its bringing company.
Unfortunately, EA is unwilling to detail just who "they" are, no matter how many times we poke them in the
Well, you certainly have to give Atari, Eden Studios and probably also Microsoft some props for ambition. Test Drive Unlimited is aiming to create and grow an entire online community. Put simply, Test Drive Unlimited is meant to be played with Xbox Live, as you compete more or less constantly against hundreds and thousands of players online, all of them living and racing on the same island as you, where a simple flash of the headlights is all it takes to flag another player into a race.
Mere hours ago we were thrown headfirst into a 24 man round of Enemy Territory: Quake Wars... and we're still reeling from the experience. Our initial fear that Quake Wars would feel sparse and under populated, especially next to the insaneness of 64-player Battlefield 2, have been utterly blown
