"Psychonauts running on Xbox 360 would be just about the coolest thing in the world, wouldn't it?" So says Tim Schafer, and he's a little biased: he made the game. "You know, I have an Xbox 360 and I love it. I wish I could spend every living moment of my life playing it," said Schafer in a news post on his studio's home page, doublefine.com. "My wife and I have discussed it, and we've agreed to name our first child 'Geometry Wars. The only thing that could make my Xbox 360 any better is if it
Now that summer is almost in full effect, it's prime time for trailer-packed festivals, state fairs and all other types of Midwestern goodness. If you can't stomach the cotton candy, ferris wheel party scene, then perhaps the touch screen shooting games of Point Blank DS can fill the void - and we've got some screens to share just before the game ships.

Take a look at these 10 new screens from online RPG Phantasy Star Universe, the much-awaited follow-up to the excellent Phantasy Star Online, which is set for Japanese release on 31 August and will hit UK shores by the end of the year.
The new screens focus on the blades 'n' bullets combat of the game, but also offer a glimpse of the player-controlled vehicles that are new to the series. And by 'vehicles' we also mean 'animals' - check out the shot of the Chocobo-style
If you've already beaten Perfect Dark Zero and received your paltry 10 Achievement points for your efforts, here's good news: the multiplayer game is still interesting, and it just got a bit more so. Four new maps - Plaza, Rooftops, Trench and GasPlant - are now available on Xbox Live Marketplace for 500 Microsoft Points (or $6.75 in human money). Log into Xbox Live now and you'll find them in the recently revamped Xbox Live Marketplace. It's the one called Perfect Dark Zero Map Pack One. Does
Need a high dose of horsepower-packed hotrods? Microsoft and Bizarre Creations have announced the release of three new vehicles from the Cadillac V-series of dream cars, now available for free download in Project Gotham Racing 3. The 400 horsepower CTS-V, the 443 horsepower XLR-V and the 469 horsepower STS-V may not be all that interesting in name, but who needs cool names when you've got a stampede of stallions under the

Not only will Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest be coming to a cinema screen near you soon, it will also be gracing Nintendo's DS in June - just take a look at the screenshots below and on the images tab above.
The DS version of the game allows you to take on the role of either Jack Sparrow, Will Turner or Elizabeth Swann, then swashbuckle your way through 19 levels of scrapping. There are a total of 16 different weapons to wield to help cut a swathe through the
Developer 3D Realms will be releasing a demo of its new first-person shooter Prey, which will be available for PC download from the 3D Realms website and 360 download on Xbox Live Marketplace on June 22.
The demo will be comprised of five levels that will enable gamers to sample both the single and multiplayer modes of this dimensionally disjointed game.
Prey is a remarkable looking shooter that has a young Native American mechanic called Tommy attempting to thwart an alien invasion with a
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is returning to DS in a second courtroom drama act with Justice for All. Just download the movie and click on the images tab above to get in on the action. There are four new cases to work on, first by collecting evidence and then by presenting it convincingly (and eccentrically) in court.
New to the game is an on-screen health bar that indicates how well the court case is going and a Psyche Lock feature which allows Phoenix to prize the truth from reluctant
Anyone who's played a traditional Pokemon RPG in the past - and literally millions of gamers have, so we're guessing that's a reasonable point of reference - knows how annoying it is to fail in an attempt to capture a pokemon. You beat the critter down to near-unconsciousness and toss your little pokeball out there in total confidence - only to have the damn thing wiggle once, wiggle twice, and then, POOF! The ball evaporates and the pokemon is still sitting there, nearly dead, but not about to
It seems to be a rite of passage that every cartoon-y, platform-y game character must eventually star in a kart racing game. This summer, one of the earliest arcade stars - Pac-Man, one of few modern game characters who can remember when Mario was a rookie - gets his turn behind the wheel.
He's not alone - there are at least 15 characters in all, including the fire-breathing dragon Fygar from Namco's arcade classic Dig-Dug and a certain roll-headed prince from a more modern hit, Katamari
