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
The basic premise with most Wii games is "simplicity." Thus, a trick-heavy, fully customizable Tony Hawk series may not be the best way to introduce people to the motion-sensing Wii wand. That's where Downhill Jam comes into play - it's a dead-simple, all-downhill racer that's easy enough to pick up, but may be hanging on to too many elements of the regular series.
So you're a punky skater kid rolling down the absurdly hilly streets of San Francisco. To steer, the wand is held sideways like a
Nintendo seems to be getting very forgetful in its old age. For after neglecting to mention to anyone about the existence of its classic version of the Wii controller, this shooter-shaped prototype turned up on the Big N's stand unannounced, unheralded and un-promoted too.
Locked in a case and seemingly fashioned from both the Wii-mote and the nunchaku controller, the device appears to have already been dubbed The Zapper after the old NES lightgun. And while we weren't able to get our hands on
We got a chance to strap ourselves into these massive machines for a little 5-against-5 mech-blasting action, and discovered a new world of adrenaline-fueled delight. After just a few minutes of this communication-heavy team combat, we were hooked. Chromehounds broadsided us with its attention to every
It seems to be a rite of passage that every cartoon-y, platform-y game character must eventually star in a kart racing game. This summer, one of the earliest arcade stars - Pac-Man, one of few modern game characters who can remember when Mario was a rookie - gets his turn behind the wheel.
He's not alone - there are at least 15 characters in all, including the fire-breathing dragon Fygar from Namco's arcade classic Dig-Dug and a certain roll-headed prince from a more modern hit, Katamari
Nintendo has confirmed that little Chibi Robo will be spreading happiness on DS when the mini metallic maid appears in Chibi Robo: Park Patrol.
After restoring happiness to the Sanderson household and saving the world in his very first appearance, the plucky cleaner has decided to take on the great outdoors. For the three-centimeter-tall cylinder of joy has discovered that little monsters are damaging the swings at the playground, and so the pure-hearted 'bot has set about purging the area of
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
After leaving PS2, Gizmondo and Xbox versions in its wake, BattleStations: Midway has again surfaced as an Xbox 360- and PC-only mixture of strategy and shooting.
After finding the safe harbor of Eidos from the scuttled SCi, BattleStations: Midway has returned to allow you to fight the epic aerial and naval World War II battles from the opening of the war in the Pacific at Pearl Harbor, through the Philippines and into the campaign's turning point at the island of
