Namco Bandai announced today that they'll be releasing an over-the-shoulder third-person shooter featuring the familiar Gundam giant robots without the familiar Gundam name. Mobile Ops: The One Year War depicts the battle of rebellious space colonists versus the oppressive Earth Federation in a far-flung future of hot robot on robot action. Electronic countermeasures (devices that render electronic communications useless) have created an environment where only gigantic mechanized warriors can
The seemingly endless Dragon Ball Z saga grew a little more endless today, as Atari announced two upcoming DBZ games for release later this year.
The first, Super DBZ, will hit PS2s this July. Not much has been revealed about the title as of press time, except that it will feature 18 characters, a new fighting system and "a more hard-core 3D fighting experience," according to Atari. For old-schoolers, though, the thing that makes this one worth watching is that it'll be developed by some of
We just can't kill Dracula enough. After last year's utterly outstanding adventure, Dawn of Sorrow, you'd be right to wonder how Konami could top its soul-stealing action. How about controlling two characters at once and summoning demons to do your bidding? That might work.
Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin will take a stab at outdoing one of 2005's best games when it arrives on November 15. You'll be able to switch between vampire hunter Jonathan Morris and magic-wielding Charlotte Orlean at any
Here's a first peek at some screenshots and a trailer from the Hollywood-inspired real-time strategy romp, Moscow to Berlin: Red Siege. Set in World War II on the Eastern Front, Moscow to Berlin puts history and action in the same room and lets them fight it out. This pick-up-and-play explosion-fest will enable you to break the stalemate in the east as the commander of the Russian or German forces.
This budget-minded title will be priced nicely at $29.99, and looks like an RTS recharge for

EA's Redwood Shores studio is currently developing a next-gen RPG under the working title Project Gray Company and is inviting gamers to offer comments on the design of the game as more details are revealed.
Few details with regard to format choice and gameplay style have been released to date. Instead the game is described as a next-gen RPG providing an "experience that allows the player to be the hero in an expansive open world".
We also know that the game will use the

Capcom has released a clutch of shots for its upcoming sci-fi shooter Lost Planet, which will be released early next year for Xbox 360.
Set on a hostile ice planet, Lost Planet follows the story of a young pilot called Wayne (great hero name) as he and a small band of humans try to repel the attention of the monstrous indigenous life forms, as well as an aggressive invading alien army.
The action is presented from a third-person perspective as the humans brave the

Eidos' Battlestations: Midway will be released this autumn for Xbox 360 and PC, which is great news for a game that has been on the radar for some time.
The action-strategy game is set during World War II's fight for the Pacific between Japan and the US. The single-player game follows the fortunes of naval recruit Henry Walker who starts the game as a gunner at Pearl Harbour and then gradually exerts more influence over the campaign with every mission.
First-person fantasy role-players may think that they have everything that they need to make it through the long summer with Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. But Oblivion is so engrossing that we've already burned through even that mountain of content, and have no multiplayer to extend our gameplay. Worry not; there is a fireball-hurling, swashbuckling savior on the way. Just in time for summer, Dark Messiah of Might and Magic promises to be the second coming of first-person fantasy adventure on the
Namco has announced Ridge Racer 7 for PlayStation 3, and the company confirmed today that it'll be touching down this November as a PS3 launch title.
It's certainly a surprise, given that we were expecting a buffed-up conversion of the Xbox 360's Ridge Racer 6 to appear. But a whole new game?
It's not clear whether that's a global launch for RR7 to go with the PS3's worldwide release, however, or if it's just for Japan. If we had to bet, our money would go on the latter.
What we do know is
Today, Eidos released these shots supposedly from Xbox, PS2, PC and 360 ... but we're pretty sure that these are actually from development hardware and not necessarilly indicative of what the game will look like on Xbox and PS2. Still, you can get a flavor for the game, so peep to your hearts content.
