Where does your lightgun live? Is it in a cupboard under a thick layer of greasy crud next to a Soda Stream, a Brevel sandwich toaster and Segway? Well, we may have the perfect gadget to keep it company in the bloody shape of the Resident Evil Chainsaw Controller.Designed by someone at NubyTech who didn't get enough cuddles during his formative years, both Capcom and Nintendo have given the controller their blessing and promised to make it the official device of Resident Evil 4 when it hits
Rallisport Challenge 2 fans rejoice (or at least chuckle smugly). Microsoft have made new content available on Xbox Live and, frankly, they probably could have charged for it.Included in the download pack are four new cars - two vintage models (the Volvo Amazon and the beautiful Saab 96), and two Sports Utility Vehicles (a spanky new BMW X5 and equally chunky VW Touareg) - and two new paint jobs for each of the original's 43 motors. There are also two new career modes; Mountain Challenge (Hill
It may have slipped to early 2005 but Resident Evil 4 is still one of the most eagerly awaited games of the moment and we have a crop of new pics of Leon's face-removing arsenal.In order of appearance in the shots to the right, at the top we have the shotgun, the said face-removing weapon of choice when it's up close and personal and the halitosis is one bite away. As you can see, we were literal in our description.The handgun is next up... Indeed, moving swiftly on we come to the 'scoped
Namco are currently working on a new Ridge Racer game, which will be released in early 2005. According a recent financial statement from the company, the game will be released by the end of the next fiscal year (which ends on 31 March 2005).However, no details of the game's platform have been mentioned - which could mean that the game in question is in fact the PSP incarnation of the arcade-racer series, which we first heard about at .The last console version of the Ridge series, R: Racing -
Resident Evil 4 is Hideo Kojima's favourite game at this year's E3, while random Americans walking past the game's pods at the event can be heard to proclaim "this looks awesome". And you know what? They're right. The reinvention of the Resi series - proper 3D gameplay, the loss of those pre-rendered backgrounds and no more slowly opening doors - works an absolute treat. Even the lack of proper zombies is a good thing: those inbred, sack-wearing villagers are far more scary than the hokey

Feast your eyes on this screenshot overload of Resident Evil 4. Even those of us who aren't die-hard fans of the hugely popular series are gagging for a slice of the action this time around. We suspect this game will prove to be Resi's finest moment when it falls into our eager hands.There are no new game details but the old adage that a picture paints a thousand words is probably true in this case. Indulge yourselves in a retina feast and you'll be slavering after this one just as much
Capcom have released the first 'official' screenshots from Resident Evil 4 since the game was first unveiled in November 2002. While a handful of scans from Japanese games mags have been doing the rounds of late, these mark the first proper screenshots we've seen of the radically reworked next instalment of the classic survival-horror series.The game appears to be much darker in tone that its predecessors and, as previously mentioned, the game eschews the zombie hordes of yore in favour of
Rockstar have released three (yes, three!) new shots of Red Dead Revolver, the third-person wild west shooter that originally began life as a Capcom game.Now being developed by Rockstar San Diego, the game is set in the 1880s and sees you play as a young gunslinger called Red, who must gain revenge against the rogue Mexican general who slayed his family.The gameplay is largely arcade-style and offers a generous arsenal of around 30 weapons - including pistols, rifles, shotguns, and dynamite -
New details of Resident Evil 4 reveal that, incredibly, the game is entirely free of zombies. Instead, according to sources in Japan, you'll be facing "villagers". Rather than having to fend off dumb, shambling members of the undead, these people have smarts, so it should mean that the game's enemies will be far more interesting in their AI and behaviour. Plus, they come armed for the fight and can throw their weapons of choice, which includes sickles and axes.As the game progresses, the
