Boxes are scattered around the apartment, evidence that your girlfriend Jenny has only just started moving in. She's surprised you with a birthday cake and - even though you've tried to warn her that you kill people for a living and your former boss is out for your blood - she shrugs it off as a bad joke. Motioning you over to the couch, she kisses you, leans her head on your shoulder and gradually falls asleep as the two of you watch TV.
It's not what you'd expect from a hyperviolent shooter,
In the years since his first brush with the demonic entity known as The Darkness, Jackie Estacado has regained control, suppressed the monster and become head of his own crime family. Of course, nothing good ever lasts for long...

Apparently inspired by the work of horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, Darkness Within only manages to retain traits from the legendary Cthulhu, in that to even lay sight upon it will lead to insanity. A world of nausea and terror awaits, full of terrible writing that will lead you to flay yourself and weep for your lost money.
The game's controls seem to have been designed by a drunken Myst fanatic - you walk around stilted 3D environs clicking your mouse in the eager hope that you
According to biblical end-times prophecies – or at least, to Darksiders’ stylized version of them – there’s an uneasy truce that exists between Heaven and Hell, and all that’s keeping it in place are the legendary Seven Seals.

Whether you loved it or hated it, Will Wright’s 2008 title Spore was an astoundingly beautiful game backed by incredible technology and some truly ambitious, pants-tighteningly awesome ideas. It’s been three years since those wonderfully over-marketed days and developer Maxis Software has finally released its second installment in the series with Darkspore. We like to think that they’re a series because both games have the word “spore” in the title, not because they are alike in any way, shape or form… because they aren’t...
What is it with space pirates? They don't fly the Jolly Roger, they don't wear flowing garments and they don't abuse the word "arrrr". These guys aren't pirates; they're just losers. So there really isn't any moral dilemma when you blow them out of the sky in DarkStar One, a game that tries too hard to be a cinematic drama when it should just concentrate on what it does well: blowin' stuff up.
You play Kayron Jarvis, novice fighter pilot, on a mission to find the assassin who killed his
The free-roaming space simulation genre has never really taken off on modern consoles. There was the Wing Commander series… but that’s about it. So immediately, Darkstar One has something going for it, and is the first of its kind on 360. You are the lamentably-named Kayron Jarvis, space pilot and owner of the Darkstar One, a high-tech ship built with alien technology. Your father died in mysterious circumstances during a mission, and you’ve left your training at flight school to hunt down the saboteurs who caused his death...
We all make mistakes while trying to make our way through this crazy world of ours. So we can empathize with Darkwatch hero, Jericho Cross when his well-intentioned train robbery goes awry and gets him bitten by a Vampire Lord, turning him into a blood-thirsty creature of the night. It could happen to any of
