Whoa there, sit down, classic Atari fanboy - developer Nibris' new vertically scrolling shooter Raid Over the River DS bears no relation to the legendary Activision game River Raid. It does, however, involve a storyline that reaches across 3,000 years, six dimensions and an armada of alien ships begging to be blown away.
Crazy plot or no, we're rabid fans of strong-armed shoot 'em ups, so seeing a new one land on the DS is enough to get us excited. But sadly, it's still unknown exactly what'll
We got our hands on a video of Rayman Raving Rabbids that proves, beyond the shadow of doubt, that rabbits are ill-equipped to play soccer. Why Ubisoft thought we needed a video to make that point, we're not sure (bunnies are typically smaller than a soccer ball, after all), but it's fun nonetheless. Click here to peep the

Polish developer Nibris has announced Raid Over the River for DS, a vertical shoot-'em-up that's got a fair few ambitions up its sleeve.
Taking in a total of 10 stages, it's a journey through several eras of air combat - past, present and future - that sees a pilot attempting to foil the plans of an evil sect. The story stretches over some 3,000 years and straddles six dimensions, each one related to Earth, and features time travel that results in a non-linear game

Real World Golf 2007, sequel to the first Gametrak-enabled golfing game, is heading to PS2 and PC later this year, giving owners of the direct-input device something else to play with. Just click on the image tab to see the first images, showing the sequel's new features - the Swing Trainer and Impact Analyser.
Gametrak's unique design means there is no need for a control pad. With the aid of a device on the floor, attached via cords to a pair of gloves, your movements are
The Outfit and Burnout Revenge will drop their prices this weekend from $59.99 down to $39.99, according to director of Xbox Live programming Larry Hryb (better known as the blogosphere's Major Nelson). Couple this news with the recently released Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis (also a bargain at $39.99), and you've got three affordable titles to keep you occupied for the long Memorial Day weekend.
Don't have 120 bucks to drop on all three? You should check out our reviews of The Outfit,
We got some curious footage of the Rayman development team apparently under siege by nefarious rabbits - or rather, "rabbids." We'd heard that Rayman Raving Rabbids was about bunnies wreaking havoc on the Rayman world, but we had no idea that they had escaped the development environment to harass real, flesh-and-blood people in France.
We've picked up a few new screens of these hateful hares in their "natural" digital environment (which Ubisoft has confirmed is Wii along with "current and
"We want to keep you in the Reservoir Dogs experience," says Volatile, the developer of Reservoir Dogs. And it's doing just that by exploring deeper into the events of the Quentin Tarantino hit film. We've been close up to the action, and can report for sure that the game is doing well to echo the flavor and atmosphere. That is, it's swearier than 10 drunken sailors and plenty

Following our hands-on with the multiplayer modes of Insomniac's amazing new PlayStation 3 shooter, Resistance: Fall of Man, we've managed to get our hands on three videos of the single-player game, which you
It's the game that Nintendo is keen to hold up as an example that Wii can handle mature action games, so we got hands-on with Ubisoft's Red Steel to see if it can live up to expectations.
As expected the controls were mapped on the new Wii controller with the analogue stick on the nunchaku used for strafing and movement, and the remote handling the aiming and shooting.
Putting the two elements together took some time - not only because this was the first time we'd played an FPS in such a way,
We finally got a chance to play Insomniac's PS3 shooter Resistance: Fall of Man, and it's not as dramatic a departure from the cheery Ratchet & Clank series as it looks. Set in Britain in 1953 - in an alternate history where World War II never happened - it casts players as resistance fighters against aliens, called Chimera, who've wiped out much of humanity.
The game itself feels like a standard first-person shooter (although with a lot more rattling and destructible environments a la Black),
