We've laid our hands on a fresh batch of screenshots from 2K Games' forthcoming gothic first-person shooter The Darkness.

The screenshots illustrate the dark and chilling New York landscape the game is set in and provide

THQ and Relic have confirmed that work has started on the second expansion pack for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War, and we have the very first footage.

We've got some fresh screenshots of Soul of the Ultimate Nation, the Korean born-and-bred massively multiplayer online role-playing game. These new screens show off improvements in combat, environments and player models.
SUN is looking like a breed apart from American MMO's not only in style, but also substance: most instances are custom-made for you and your party, and the game is highly supportive of power-leveling players who love to jockey between multiple characters. Check out the new
With its nonstop explosions and free-roaming, destroy-anything gameplay, last year's Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction was an awesome - if often overlooked - riff on Grand Theft Auto. Today, developer Pandemic announced that it's expanding the Mercenaries world with Mercenaries 2: World in Flames, which will be officially unveiled next week at E3.
Pandemic's keeping a tight lid on details so far, but we do know that the sequel -planned for next-gen systems - will be set in "a new and

Yesterday, an announcement was sent out regarding a new game from Electronic Arts entitled Army of Two. Touted as the game that will redefine strategic two-man cooperative play, the release featured little information besides an excessive use of capital letters when referencing the word "TWO."

We've already covered the basics of Justice League Heroes in our earlier preview, so today we're just bringing a few new screenshots of the action RPG for you to nibble on. It's also worth noting that Tomb Raider and Hitman publisher Eidos will be distributing the game in North America and Europe - so how many logos will we have to press start through just to play the damn game?

Full Auto seems to be doing well on the Xbox 360, but apparently not well enough, because Sega today announced that Full Auto 2: Battlelines is in development as a PlayStation 3 exclusive.
Like the original, Full Auto 2 will be a high-speed racing blastfest that lets you destroy and manipulate each track to your advantage. As before, there's a huge focus on causing as much devastation and mayhem as possible, and you'll be able to cut corners and crush competitors with a few well-placed
Xbox Live has been taken down for the whole day of May 2 in order to conduct routine maintenance to the system, but we suspect some interesting upgrades may be packed into the outage. The Xbox Live servers will remain offline until midnight tonight, but when they return, expect a little extra to be on the horizon of availability as Microsoft gears up for the coming E3 media
