Is it wrong for a gaming icon to play with himself? Well, that's exactly what's going on in these inexplicably interesting Pac-Man World Rally screens that showcase the classic, retro maze from the first game. As you race through the level, you'll catch glimpses of Pac and Mrs. Pac enjoying a table version of the original Pac-Man, complete with roaming ghosts, dots and an endless series of 90 degree turns.
The game's due on August 22, but the prospect of zipping through this maze, ghosts and
If the ultra-vague shipping dates are to be believed, we'll be knee-deep in monkey madness early next week thanks to Super Monkey Ball Adventure. This marks the first time the simian superstars have broken free from their prison balls and actually tried to accomplish something - saving all of the monkeyverse. If it plays half as stupid as it sounds, then we may have something here.
Either way, we've got new screens of minigame goodness to soak up and all you have to do is hit the Images tab
How does Darth Vader reveal that he's Luke Skywalker's father when he can't talk? That was the question posed by publisher LucasArts when they sent over new screens of Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy. Will the mute, plastic Dark Lord of the Sith use charts? Puppets? Obscene pantomime? They wouldn't tell us the answer, but they promise it'll be
When Splinter Cell Double Agent arrives on the PS2, Xbox and GameCube this fall, it'll be a completely different game than the vaunted Xbox 360/PC edition. But that doesn't mean that current-gen console owners are necessarily getting an inferior version; if you've got your doubts, maybe our exclusive gameplay footage will set your mind at ease.
Taken in the early Iceland level, the video shows off lots of cool dynamic lighting on the Xbox version, as well as plenty of sneaking, hacking,

Both Sony and Electronic Arts passed on the opportunity to turn Brit horror flick 28 Days Later into a game, according to the film's producer Andrew Macdonald.
Macdonald was speaking at the Develop Conference in Brighton this week about the crossover between games and films when he revealed there was little interest in the 28 Days Later licence. Many independent developers were tempted by the idea but would need funding to produce it.
28 Days Later was directed by Danny
Just to keep you up with everything Zelda, we've got our hands on a collection of concept artwork from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess to share with you.
The art includes sketches of new creatures and locations from the new game, which is due for release this year on GameCube and Wii.
The star of the game is, of course, Link, who must explore the vast land of Hyrule in order to uncover the mystery of the Twilight Realm, which has plunged the world into darkness. This time Link can turn
GameCube classic Eternal Darkness almost certainly has a sequel on the way, according to Denis Dyack, director of developer Silicon Knights.
Dyack has revealed in his blog that the three-game approach the team took to the forthcoming Xbox 360 game Too Human was always a possibility for Eternal Darkness. Every time the team designs a game, he says, it is intended to tell a story within a larger universe and that other stories are still there to be told.
This means that Too Human's - and now
Ubisoft delivered another little video for Rayman Raving Rabbids, and we've begun to detect a theme here. The third in their series of "Bunnies can't..." shorts, this episode depicts a Raving Rabbid bunny attempting to play with fireworks with decidedly mixed results. While these clips are entertaining, we'd still like to see more actual gameplay in them.
Still, we eagerly await future installments in this series, because we're hoping that they'll include: Bunnies can't perform colonoscopies,

This makes the grappler part of Nintendo's Player's Choice lineup, a collection of the best-selling games for the console. Earlier this year games like Paper Mario 2 and Pikmin 2 were added to the list as well.
For more on WWE Day of Reckoning 2, take a look at our review and see if it's really worth the cash. History suggests you likely already have
As the latest Sam Fisher adventure sneaks towards its September release, Ubisoft thought it would share a few more visuals of Splinter Cell: Double Agent.
Double Agent is, of course, the game where Sam Fisher goes bad, but only because he's trying to do good. He's infiltrating a terrorist group in order to take them down from within, but to earn their trust he has to behave like a criminal.
The game will feature all the high tech gadgetry and stealth aspects from previous games, but you'll be
