2K Games has released a new trailer of its trippy first-person shooter, Prey, which will be released for PC and Xbox 360 this summer.
The game follows the story of Tommy, a Cherokee car mechanic who is abducted by aliens and must fight his way to safety.

If, for some reason, you've decided that you're bored with your Project Gotham Racing 3 garages full of exotic sports cars, here's good news: the PGR 3 Speed Pack is now available via the Xbox Live Marketplace, offering a dozen new cars and some gameplay improvements that all players should
Long ago, on a since-retired console, the universe of Phantasy Star big-banged its way into existence and a legion of fans was born. Since then, the battered series has moved from platform to platform as a sort of RPG hobo, never really getting the cozy home that it enjoyed on the early Sega game

Competitions are to be held as qualifying challenges and single-elimination knockout rounds.

No word on what the Grand Prize is - unless it really is the crown - but the fact that the competition is at the actual factory
We've bagged an extensive trailer to Paradise, the follow up adventure from the makers of the thrilling best-seller Syberia (click on the movies tab above for a look).
Far away from crowded loot drops and camping snipers, Paradise 's mysterious setting of Madargane promises to give us an engaging, enigmatic adventure. You'll step right into the life of an amnesiac trying to find her identity, inside a country run by a brutal dictator: her father.
Your ticket to Paradise gets punched when it
If you've frequented a bowling alley, movie theater or Wal-Mart vestibule in the past few years, you've no doubt seen the carnival-shooter Point Blank. The gun game - as in, you actually hold a plastic gun and shoot things - throws all kinds of state fair minigames your way, like blasting ducks or acing chickens in a set time limit. Now it's coming to the Nintendo
Paradise, the next thriller from the makers of the award-winning point-and-click adventure Syberia, continues to make progress toward launch. The enigmatic journey stars the amnesiac heroine Ann Smith, on the run after an attempt at assassinating the evil dictator of a small north African country. And talk about daddy issues ... that dictator is her father.

3D Realms CEO Scott Miller has revealed details regarding two of the developer's biggest upcoming titles: Prey and Duke Nukem Forever. Well, we say 'upcoming', but still no one knows when the latter is coming out.
So, just what has happened to Duke Nukem Forever? "No-one wants to spend so long on making a game, and we've definitely screwed up along the way," Miller told FiringSquad.com. "But in the end, it'll work out fine as long as we produce a hit. If we manage that, few will care that it
