To celebrate the UK launch of Kingdom Hearts II, we've teamed up with Square Enix and Piggyback Interactive to offer five lucky winners a copy of the PS2 game and the official strategy guide each.
Kingdom Hearts II is the sequel to Square Enix and Disney's beautiful (and massive) RPG collaboration, which combines characters from the Final Fantasy series of games with characters and locations from many of Disney's famous movies. We gave the game 9/10 in our review.

Following yesterday's screenshots from the Kingdom Under Fire series' jump to Xbox 360 and switch to dungeon-crawling action, the first trailer has arrived - rapidly strike the movies tab above to see it.
Although it's not quite as stirring as we were expecting - spending a little too long lingering on the scenery rather than the (great-looking) combat - it's a promising start, and hints at how hectic the action will get with a full four players furiously windmilling
Xbox 360 and PC owners who've been itching to beat up a lot of monsters for thrills and riches need look no further than Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom when it's released early next year, and the screens below are sure to feed your appetite.
The previous KUF titles on Xbox - Crusaders and Heroes - were memorably chunky, strategic army-slaughtering titles, which made developer Phantagram's flawed Xbox 360 effort, Ninety-Nine Nights, even more
The first teaser trailer for sociopath-and-psychopath actioner Kane & Lynch has been released, layering on even more grit and grimness with an angsty narration by Kane's daughter.
Still, she's got better reason to be hateful than most lip-pierced, hoodie-wearing teens, as along with the rest of Kane's family she's being held hostage until he and psycho sidekick Lynch have performed a series of hits for his old crime
If you're anything like us, you love good games at a cheap price. Unfortunately, when shopping for 360 games, this confines us to the bargain been at local retail outlets which typically discount used games by as little as a couple bucks off the original price. Enter Microsoft's semi-new (new to the 360 library, anyway) Platinum Hits collection of cheapy 360 titles.
Microsoft selected four games to lead the Platinum Hits charge (all priced at $29.99), and it should come as no surprise which
Microsoft announced today that they will publish the next installment of Kingdom Under Fire. Subtitled Circle of Doom, this new chapter swerves from the traditional action-strategy formula of earlier Kingdom Under Fire games into action-RPG territory. The press release (which unfortunately arrived with no accompanying art) flaunted the power of the 360 by proclaiming such features as randomly generated dungeons and landscapes and thousands of on-screen enemies.
Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of

We've been impressed with what we've seen of buddy-movie-for-psychopaths Kane & Lynch: Dead Men but among our lingering questions was whether or not Sony's console will be in on the heist.
"The formats we've announced are PC and 360. It doesn't mean that we can't do any other platforms - but those are the ones we have as a simultaneous release right now," game director Jens Peter Kurup diplomatically explained.
"We're pretty proud of doing multiplatform stuff and we

Kane & Lynch, the new PC and Xbox 360 project from Hitman developer, Io Interactive, will feature a brand new, never before seen multiplayer mode.
After taking us through two of the game's single-player levels, Io game director, Jens Peter Kurup, revealed that the multiplayer experience will be completely new to gamers.
"It's based on one single idea and we cannot figure out why nobody else has done it yet. We find it gorgeous and we would hate anybody else to do it

Kane and Lynch: Dead Men has finally been revealed in fully-playable form at today's Leipzig Game Convention and before we bring you a double-mission hands-on we've got a gang of screens to introduce to you. Just hit the images tab for more from this impressive, action-focused squad shooter from the maker of Hitman and the underrated Freedom Fighters.
The missions we've seen take place in a heaving nightclub and a half-constructed skyscraper. The nightclub gig has you (as
While Karaoke Revolution Presents: American Idol was first announced back in May, we didn't get a real glimpse of the game until today. For the first time (since the disastrously awful American Idol rhythm game, anyway), fans of the TV show will be able to go from auditions to finals, singing to impress Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson (but not Paula Abdul, strangely) while competing to become the next semi-talented performer contractually obligated to sing in Ford
