Its reassuring to see that the DS juggernaut is showing no signs of slowing down. There are constantly enough crazy games being made that demonstrate its mass appeal. Wed only be happier if there were more Wii games being produced. But dont let the fact that most of the games previewed here are imports stop you from getting excited. Remember, imported DS games can play on your American DS. You just need to get over your crushing xenophobia. Feast your eyes on the cornucopia of love
There's no movie sequel to the The Incredibles on its way, but that hasn't stopped THQ from making up their own. With a plotline that follows on from the original film, Rise of the Underminer begins right where the film ends, where the Underminer is threatening to wreak havoc on the residents of Metroville. You have to battle against him, travelling through the city and the underground maze beneath it. You play as Mr Incredible or Frozone, who each have their unique skills. Mr Incredible uses

It turns out that from 1961-71 there were no guns, turtle shells or otherwise attached to any racecars in the Indy 500, at least if the historically accurate Wii and DS game Indianapolis 500 Legends is to be trusted. We weren't about to let a sub-standard arsenal keep us from having a good time, so we focused on the one thing Indy 500 is really about: driving a car.
The game takes you through ten years of the Indy 500 with historical drivers, cars, track conditions and
In his latest adventure, Inuyasha: Secrets of the Divine Jewel, the title character and his massive sword team up with a new protagonist, a high school girl. Sound familiar? If not, you don't know much about Inuyasha, my friend. He's a half-demon dog-child (peep the ears) that follows around a schoolgirl named Kagome who freed him from imprisonment and has a knack for getting into trouble. He yells her name a lot and they travel around with/get into fights with all sorts of wacky,
The Iron Man movie may still be under wraps, but at last week's E3 show Sega was pimping out an early look at the game of the movie, which includes big names like Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson and Gwyneth Paltrow. Whether any of these famous faces will take time out to speak into a microphone for the game remains to be announced but Sega's developer team has had access to most, if not all, assets from the film.

It's not all about Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. There's a new series in town, being worked on by the creators of the KH games and with a style very much its own. It's a Wonderful World - we'd expect the title to change in the US but we don't know to what, just yet - blends hip-hop street fashion and action RPG gameplay in unexpectedly cool ways.
The game, which is set on the streets of Tokyo and stars an even more stylish young crew than the Kingdom Hearts games, pits you against a plague
Yuji Naka will forever be known as the creator of Sonic the Hedgehog, regardless of how many other people were on the team and regardless of where the series goes from here. But the man has his own company now (Prope), and is moving on to new projects, such as last year's Let's Tap for Wii. Next up for Prope is Ivy the Kiwi, which trades spiny mammals for spiny birds and speed for… penmanship? It’s a Wii and Nintendo DS platformer that resembles classics such as Kirby's Canvas Curse and “casual” smash hit Line Rider – you draw lines on the screen for Ivy to walk on...
