Every player old enough to remember a previous console will have favorite old-school games that – to them – still stand up to the very best games of today. Gears of War? It rocks, but it’s no Contra on NES. Batman: Arkham Asylum? Give us Duck Tales.
Something happened as soon as we were handed the controller. Without a moment’s hesitation or guidance, we slashed at the nearest patch of grass and picked up the money that popped out, fired our hookshot-esque device at a wooden post to cross over a gap, pushed blocks around to make our way to a cracked wall, and then exploded said wall with a bomb - but not before poking our sword against the wall to hear if the resulting clanking was different
After the news over a week ago that Nintendo was requesting the removal of non-official Pokedex apps from iTunes and the Android market, we had an inkling that an official Pokedex was on the way in some form. Well, we now know that the 3D Pokedex will be available as a free download via the 3DS eShop when it launches on Monday June 6. But how does it stack up against other freely available fan 'dexes? We've got all the details...
Would that we were encamped in lovely downtown Barcelona, basking in the glory of Microsoft's X06 event and soaking up that Spanish sun, but alas, we're not. However, that can't stop us from letting you know a few things that are being rolled out there, including this one available from Xbox 360 Live Arcade, 3D Ultra Minigolf Adventure.
Behold the revival of Sierra Online's 3D Ultra Minigolf series, first launched for PC waaay back in 1997. The original was little more that a set of staid,
After reading 50 Cent's biography, it comes as no surprise that the bullet-riddled rapper is starring in his own virtual adventure. Indeed, 50's eventful history of making dollars, building rep and getting shot enough times to kill a baby elephant, sounds more like a game synopsis than real life.
But while Mr Cent might have all the necessary credentials to be an ass-capping avatar, if the game's a big pile of steaming toilet food then people will be especially quick to berate it as a smash
10 minutes into being shown 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand by developer Swordfish Studios (who thankfully had nothing to do with the terrible Bulletproof) we got the strangest feeling that this self-proclaimed 'long awaited' sequel might actually be, well, a pretty decent arcade shooter.
“%#&@!! Step up %#&@! and come on and %#&@! get it, %#&@!!” At least, that’s what multi-platinum rapper 50 Cent says. If you need a translation, it means he’s about to bust a cap in some major terrorist ass. And the best part about busting those caps, at least in his upcoming shooter 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, is that he can now bust them with a buddy.
We join the developers of A Game of Dwarves as they show us how to build a proper dwarven habitat, grow "wood" trees, and dig holes in our video preview...
Oh, to be a LucasArts veteran. To have lived through the days of Monkey Island and Full Throttle, and slipped away when it became about bad Star Wars games. To live as some sort of renegade idealist, criss-crossing the country on a Harley, rounding up a posse of old friends and starting your own development studio to produce a completely original adventure game. It's been done - a few times now in fact, (just look at Psychonauts ) - so could we be about to see it happen again?

After a string of quirky, well written Ace Attorney games, Capcom is throwing gamers a curveball with Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth. The game introduces new gameplay elements and third-person views, and most notably focuses on fan favorite Miles Edgeworth instead of series staple Phoenix Wright. We put the game’s producer, Motohide Eshiro in the hot seat and grilled him for evidence
