Above: It doesn’t get much better than free. Try Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising before the closed beta phase ends
Friends, TalkRadarians, countrymen, lend us your mouse clicks and you shall receive access to the closed beta for Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising. The Rome-themed MMO was much talked about when it was first announced by Perpetual Entertainment in 2005. Since then, Heatwave Interactive has obtained the rights to the game, revamping and reinventing about two thirds of the game.
If you’d like to roll your own Demigod and see how Gods & Heroes has improved, now’s your chance. We have a bundle of closed beta keys to give away, today!
A titanic glut of new shots blasted us in the face today, riding on a lightning bolt from Mount Olympus. Featured in these screens are all the Greek staples of legend including a Cyclops, a tiny harpy, Cerberus (guardian of the gates to the underworld) and a few scantily clad Grecian hotties. While we didn't see Medusa in this most recent batch, you can be sure that she and her stone-infusing stare appear somewhere in this Greek god-packed epic.
Sometimes you need to know where you're going before you can decide where to begin. The choices you make during your first few minutes with Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising's character creation system have some long-lasting implications on what Feats and God Powers you'll have at your disposal as you near the game's current level cap of 40.
Pick a heal-centric Priest, and you might find yourself pining for a Nomad that can heal and score some stabby damage later on. The god you choose to align
New details on Sega's videogame tie-in with movie The Golden Compass, which is based on the first book in Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, have emerged. Sega's game sticks closely to the screenplay adaptation of the novel. Players will assume the role of the trilogy's main character Lyra as well as Iorek Byrnison, a warrior polar bear whom Lyra befriends during her adventure. Accompanied by her demon Pantalaimon, Lyra's adventures begin when she goes in search of a friend kidnapped
Gaming’s worst fake foreign accents and Epic Mickey take center stage in this episode. Also Golden Sun, we answer your questions, and one host has a painfully broken butt. Try and guess which one!
Abe Lincoln. Charles Darwin. Edge. Between them they’ve mastered the realms of politics, science and writing about overweight Italian plumbers. And, more importantly than any of that, they’re now all 200. Yep, the long-running and respected games mag has just reached its 200th issue, celebrating the landmark event by publishing 200 unique covers.
So if you’re mad for Master Chief, delirious over Deus Ex or want to dip
Since its announcement at E3, I’ve been waiting for this Goldeneye 007 remake with guarded interest. Back in the late ‘90s I probably put 200 hours into the multiplayer for the N64 original, and this game looks better every time I see it, but the disappointment over the last remake, subtitled Rogue Agent, still stings. But this most recent trailer, a look at how the developers have been working on updating it, makes me a little more positive about this game’s right to exist...
So it's being rumoured that Raven Software, the Activision-owned developer of the criminally under-promoted Singularity, is hard at work on a unannounced Bond game that had previously been stalled by MGM's financial troubles. I don't know whether to happy about this story or not. Reasons I should be: Raven have previously been said to be reduced to Call of Duty DLC monkeys since Activision ensured that their excellent time-travelling FPS didn't sell. Reasons I shouldn't be: A Bond game tends to be the kiss of death, however good your studio is.
Seriously, Activision giving you the Bond license is like being given a massive cake for your birthday, only to realise it's your 30th and you're in Logan's Run. Hopes and fears? I have plenty of both. Click on.
We already gave you our thoughts on the robust multiplayer modes of the other online
shooter showing up to fight this holiday season. Now, in a new
walkthrough video, we're able to take a look at the singleplayer side of
Goldeneye 007: Reloaded. Last time, the developers walked us through a
stealthy approach to combat. Not this time. This time, they go for
action, and show off the enhanced, expanded, and re-imagined level Severnaya level. It's a lot different from the one in the original Goldeneye level (which you can see videos of on YouTube for comparison), but the heart is still there...
Yesterday Warner Bros Interactive revealed its newest game, a downloadable FPS set in Batman’s Gotham City, developed by Monolith (FEAR, Condemned) titled Gotham City Impostors. The first details on the multiplayer-focused FPS were a lot to handle, especially coming to terms with the fact that you’d be playing as vigilantes inspired by Batman and Joker, instead of playing as those iconic characters. Perhaps that’s hard to picture with just a logo and a description, so Warner was nice enough to release the first art for the game...
