Our first trip to Rapture was a revelation. We didn’t realize first-person shooters could be so daring, so intellectual and so beautifully bizarre while still satisfying our action-hungry trigger fingers. And yet… we weren’t sure we wanted more. We feared a second trip to Rapture would be less a revelation than a familiar retread.
Another Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and you know what that means: tons of holiday-themed articles from websites like ours, scrambling to clumsily link videogames with romance and reminding the lovelorn that fictional characters have it better than they do.
A lot of stuff happens in the world of games every week - some of which you might have missed. Here's a quick round-up of what we considered to be the most talked about news stories of the past five days....Ubisoft reveals Ghost Recon Future Soldier
The new Ghost Recon replaces its advanced warfighters with future soldiers. It's coming from the same dev team that worked on the two GRAW games and is down for release at the end
Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures, is Funcom's brutally epic MMORPG set in the high fantasy world of Conan, Robert E Howard's barbarian king. In retrospect the brooding Cimmerian's literary world was such classic material for an MMORPG, the only real surprise was that no-one had beaten Funcom to the punch when Age debuted back in 2008.

There are ways to die in a game and there are ways to die. Being horrendously, but heroically squashed under a size 400 foot as we single-handedly fight a giant robot with nuclear weapons. Now that’s a respectable way to embrace gaming death. Having our hero get done in by birds, spiders or a bad case of the cold (like in the following collection of games)? Yeah, not so much. So join us as we doff our gaming hats and monocles to
PCs ruled the roost in 2009. While console gaming hit the brick wall of its own technical limitations, PC gaming technology just continued to get better, faster and cheaper as the year wore on. And now that 2010 is well underway we know that the coming year is going to be a belter for new PC computing and gaming tech.
Valentine’s Day approaches! What’re you gonna do? Get your special someone a heart-shaped box of chocolates and a card with a puppy on it? How Hallmark™ of you. We have a better way to ignite that sexy spark…by which we mean worse: gaming, plus, sex. It’s so stupid it just might work…or involve more awkward silences and tears than a JRPG.
Real-life shopping. Unless you enjoy shambling about like an extra in a Romero flick, it's a mostly soul-destroying activity that ranks somewhere between 'watching The X Factor' and 'tasting vomit' on our list of Things We'd Rather Not Do If We Can Help It. So it's testament to the subversive qualities of games that they can make shopping not suck. How do games do it - what makes shopping in games so much more enjoyable than shopping in
The Pirates of the Caribbean movies raked in over a billion dollars worldwide. There’s no doubt that a big part of that success was down to the loveable sea dog Captain Jack Sparrow. So how will a licensed game without him fare? Batman: Arkham Asylum was a big influence on Armada of the Damned. That game took all the things that made the DC characters and the universe so awesome, and then did something fresh and unexpected with them.
