We can't speak as to whether the inhabitants of the continent of Telon celebrate Christmas, but they sure are in a gift-giving mood this holiday season. Just in time to make a snappy present, they (with the help of Sony Online Entertainment and Sigil Games Online) have bestowed brand new screenshots of the environments from their upcoming MMORPG, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.
After you've fully customized your character's race and class, there'll be no shortage of space in which to navigate. We're
Seeing as Virtua Fighter 5 is one of the most visually pleasing next-gen games around, we thought we'd share some more shots of it with you. Nope, didn't think you'd complain.
Since its release in Japanese arcades earlier this year VF5 has proved to be the choice for hardcore fighting fans thanks to its subtle but extremely complex fighting system that encourages gamers to develop a strong defense and a counter-attacking
Just a glance at these new shots from Virtua Tennis 3 is enough to confirm that the racquet-swinging threequel retains all the bonkers brilliance that we love about Sega's tennis sim, and then some.
Both minigames shown look to mirror the training tasks from Virtua Tennis World Tour on PSP - the 10 pin bowling service game will be familiar to pros of the handheld outing, while the giant tennis ball and fruit action already has us wondering about the crazy court-based escapades Virtua Tennis 3
Even the heroes of Telon know how to bust out the spiked egg nog and celebrate the holidays because we recently got our mitts on a new trailer showing off one of the land mounts youll be able to ride in mega-MMORPG Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.
Players gain access to land mounts once they reach level 10, but the imposing Shadow Hound will be reserved for those with higher levels. Not much is known about the beast, other than its ability to sprint across terrain and rugged mountains. It also looks
Feast your eyes on some new screens from the recently released Viva Pinata. Check out our review to find out why 360 owners should give this unexpected gem a try.
Among the sights on offer are some beavers sleeping in a lake - surely a dangerous choice of bed for a paper animal - as well as Pinata pandas and a sheep wearing a tiara. Crazy, yes, but in a good
Virtua Tennis 3, the PS3-bound update to Sega's sports series, will bounce on to Sony's next-gen hardware complete with SixAxis-supporting motion-sensitive controls.
By tilting the pad you'll be able to move your player around the court - a bit like in Super Monkey Ball - or slam a shot across the net by wielding the pad like a tennis racquet.
To move you would tip the pad in the required direction - rolling it forward to go up the court, right to go to the right, and so on. And, as you can
Today Sony Online Entertainment released details on the special features and exclusive items available for early-bird fans that purchase the pre-order and Collector's & Guild editions of their latest entry in the MMORPG genre, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.

What does EverQuest creator Brad McQuaid do for an encore? Build the world of his dreams, that's what. Among the scores of up-and-coming massively multiplayer online games coming out this next year, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes stands head-and-shoulders above the rest in terms of our expectations.
Even the group of otherwise mundane environment shots that were released today smack us upside the head with their enormity. McQuaid clearly doesn't want anything bumping his noggin in Vanguard - nearly
About a month ago at the Leipzig Games Convention, developer Rare received a lot of flack for a crashy and frame-dropping Viva Pinata demo. What a difference a month makes. The demo we got to play at X06 seemed to be an entirely different beast altogether. The lock-ups and horrible framerate were magically replaced with some of the best graphics we've seen on 360 to

With a little jet lag from the Tokyo Game Show, a new round of in-game action screens from PS3's Virtua Fighter 5 have arrived.
After its triumphant TGS appearance, where we couldn't tell the difference between the arcade game and the PS3 version, we're pretty excited to get lounge-side seats to the most intense fighter in town.
And while Sega's PS3 version of Virtua Tennis looks to be losing out on its online play, we hope both Sony and Sega put the time into
