This morning we received a small selection of new, super-gloss Iron Man 2 screens. The shots illustrate some of the things you'd probably expect to do in Iron Man 2, like fly, and blow things up.
Some people say you can have too much of a good thing, but we say they can bugger right off. A cake is good, right? But are two cakes bad? No, theyre just more cake, and we like cake so well take all we can get. Om nom nom.
In gaming terms, the only thing better than a great videogame is a great videogame that acts as the start of a great franchise. Final Fantasy, Burnout, Super Mario Bros… We love them not only because theyre great but also because of what they later gave us. The only

Software... update. Two extremely dull words that, when combined, become even duller. So why is the entire gaming community currently abuzz about the next iteration of the Xbox 360 dashboard? When did mandatory software upgrades become so dramatic and controversial?
Easy - when Microsoft announced that this update had something to do with Halo. Starting December 2, you'll be able to download some of the original Xbox's classic titles and play them on your 360. No disc, no ugly

Eat your heart out, Spider-Man.
The Iron Man game was first unveiled at this year's E3, and we were far from impressed about what we were looking at during the live action demo. That early on, it looked like any other superhero game and we all know how badly they do.
But look at that 360 screen down below. Does that look so bad? Click on the Images tab if you need more
Sony's annual E3 press conference opened with what could have been the biggest reveal of the entire show if it hadn't been leaked last week: the new $499 price of the PS3, as well as the introduction of a new $599 model that comes with an 80GB hard drive and a copy of online-enabled dirt racer Motorstorm. This left biggy-wig Jack Tretton (who began the event speaking through his character in the PS3 virtual world Home) to launch right into the publisher's game-centric, four-part
20. Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes
Silicon Knights | Konami | 2004
A slick remake of the revolutionary spy drama that's still considered by many to be the best entry in the Metal Gear saga
What made it so great?
Take the single greatest game of the PSone generation, inject a fresh graphical update and all the cool new gameplay features from its PS2 sequel, and you've got an instant classic. Developed by Canadian developer Silicon Knights and filled with new cutscenes by Japanese film
It looks like cult-classic Treasure shooter Ikaruga is coming to Xbox Live Arcade, after a download for the game appeared on Microsoft's debug version of Xbox Live.
The shooter was originally released for Dreamcast and Nintendo Gamecube in 2003 (check out our screens), and is the spiritual sequel to Saturn blaster Radiant
Let the haters and the old ladies complain about how those newfangled video computer games teach us to be killers; we've always taken the view that violent games are a pressure valve for blowing off steam in a harmless way. Don't believe it? Play something fierce and bloody the next time you're in a really bad mood, and then try telling us you didn't feel better afterward.
But why stop there? If games can keep you from climbing a clock tower and expressing your inner pain in the form of
Spidey, Hulk and the X-Men may serve Activision, but everyone's favorite (only?) drunken millionaire playboy is coming to next-gen systems courtesy of Sega. The publisher giant has secured rights to both the comic book version of Iron Man and the forthcoming film, due May 2, 2008. Not that excited? How's this: Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Iron Man's true identity. Dude. It's a perfect
If you're looking for something spectacularly different, Fahrenheit should fit the identikit. For Quantic Dream's murderous adventure game already looks brave, bold and hopefully just a little brilliant - and without the potential for a face/pavement interface like .
You begin the game as Lucas Kane, an innocent man with blood on his hands. We first meet him in a toilet stood over the body of his victim: a stranger that for reasons unknown to Kane or us, our hero has just stabbed to death.
