Well, there's good and bad news for all you suplex enthusiasts.
The good news is that we've got six exclusive (and undeniably sinister) screenshots of the game for you, each containing - you'll be relieved to know - muscle-proud biker-a-likes in their pants performing a variety of
After World War II, mouthy but endearingly furry sidekicks and cel-shading, the latest trend in gaming seems to be for multiple playable characters. Or games where groups of heroes share the lead role, giving the gamer their own unique view of the story. Core Design's Project Eden first attempted it a few years ago but, since then, we've seen Metal Gear Solid 2 divide the battles between Raiden and Snake and soon Killer 7 will be here to do the same - but with multiple personalities.

In 1994 a small group of plucky invertebrates went to war and after 10 years of slow slithering they are all set to finally arrive in Worms 4 Mayhem. But during that long decade, wave after wave of Team 17's spineless soldiers have also appeared in 3D, Blast, Party and about 40 other worm-based wars.For this tenth anniversary edition the asexual annelids are planning to wiggle the short distance back to their roots, with a return to the open warfare of the classic game.

I bet Shigsy was really chuffed when he came up with Mario's magic water pack in Sunshine. You can imagine him cracking open a Stella and chucking a bundle of crisp yen on the fire, safe in the knowledge he'd set the benchmark for platformers for the next five years. Trouble is, he got it wrong! Hoses aren't the future; rabbits on chains is where it's at - a point proved by Whiplash, a platformer that breaks new ground in bunny use.The rabbit in question is Redmond, who's chained up to a weasel
