The following collection of violent, titillating titles have offended censors all over the world.

The 360 will get a head start on blurring the line between game and advertisement with the announcement of the next America's Army game heading exclusively to Microsoft's next-gen console. Scheduled for release this September, America's Army: True Soldiers is being developed by Tom Clancy veterans Red Storm and published by Ubisoft.
In addition to boasting the same developer as GRAW 2, True Soldiers will also feature the same game engine. Unlike GRAW 2, though, True Soldiers will maintain the
Sony Online Entertainment is tired of seeing the same old, traditional high fantasy 'men in tights' style of MMO, and will be aiming to craft a totally different type of online experience with The Agency, SOE's recently revealed spy-'em-up MMO for PlayStation 3 and PC.
At a recent SOE event, the developer revealed a wealth of new info on the intriguing spyfest. The Agency will be primarily shooter-focused, with FPS and third-person viewpoints emphasising the sort of action you see in Splinter
Halo 3 touches down September 26, GTA IV takes over town on October 19 and now it's been confirmed by Ubisoft that the swelteringly anticipated Assassin's Creed will be pushing its way through the crowds for a worldwide release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in November. That's three massive games in three consecutive months.
And while Ubisoft's stealthy killer will certainly have its work cut out following in the trail of Halo and GTA, the game's publisher/developer is confident that Assassin's

Gearbox Software has broken silence on its Alien first-person shooter it's working on for Sega.
Speaking to Gamereactor briefly about the game recently, the developer's big cheese Randy Pitchford revealed that players will strap on the boots of a Colonial Marine, with the storyline playing out from the Colonial Marines' perspective.
