Did you like flying around in a Legofied Jedi starfighter in Lego Star Wars? Stuff like that will be just the tip of the iceberg in the sequel, according to publisher LucasArts.
In a press release yesterday, the company announced that Lego Star Wars II will not only add a slew of new vehicles - including X-Wings, plastic dewback lizards (complete with chomping action) and a bricky version of the Millennium Falcon - but it'll integrate them into the platform-hopping gameplay in ways that the
If you've been waiting to try out the massively multiplayer car-war Auto Assault until the mechanics could give it a tune-up, wait no longer. NC Soft has deployed the first patch for the game, which includes several revisions, additions and tweaks that can only come from player feedback and experience.
MMO fans will recognize many of the new bits as "necessary luxuries" for the genre: the ability to shuffle your character's skills and attributes for a small fee with a "respec" feature,
Family photos of all eight classes of upcoming massively multiplayer online RPG ArchLord have come to light (see them at the Images tab above) - but for a game practically exploding with originality and potential, we're disappointed to hear that once again, we'll be playing as humans, orcs and elves.
The heavy influence of Japanese anime in the character art should make up for the re-use of classic RPG archetypes. Characters are decked out in fantastically over-the-top outfits, lug wildly
Even the busiest of gamers will have time for a little SUN. That is, Soul of the Ultimate Nation, the up-and-coming MMO from the "Land of the Morning Calm" (ahem, Korea).
That's the idea behind SUN; while some games might concentrate scaling their graphical goodies to match your video card, SUN players will find that they can dial in just the right amount of adventure. Have just a snippet of time for some solo questing, or do you want to serve up an epic weekend treasure search for your whole
Much like pyromaniac American children during the days leading up to the 4th of July, residents of MMO World of Warcraft celebrate the longest day of the year tomorrow with a festival of flames.
The Midsummer Fire Festival will go from June 21 through July 5, and will be marked by bonfires across Azeroth to rekindle the spirits of its celebrants and to ward off ancient evils.
Ribbon pole dancing (like Maypole dances, actually) at festival camps results in a fiery blessing. The dance grants

This fresh image of Enemy Territory: Quake Wars reveals a cramped new city location for the objective-based team-play shooter called Ghost Town, and it's dramatically different to the wide open terrain we've fought over before.
You'll have to take extra care while bombing through these wreckage-strewn streets on a super-powered quad bike, and the abundance of hard cover will make for some hard-fought shoot outs. Take a look below for our personal points of

The next installment of Half-Life 2's episodic trilogy will add a new multiplayer mode to the sci-fi shooter's arsenal, according to a post on the official Steam forum. Speculation suggests that it will be a remix of legendary Half-Life teamplay mod Team Fortress and will be set during the Seven Hour War, which occurred before the events of Half-Life 2.
Here is a collection of new details for Half-Life 2: Episode Two, taken from the latest edition of PC Gamer magazine, which include:
If you just started playing games in the past five or six years, you wouldn't understand just how insanely popular professional tomb raider Lara Croft was in the late '90s. Her bountiful assets and explorative gameplay captivated untold legions of gamers, and now her first raid is getting a 10th anniversary remake for PS2, PSP and PC, courtesy of Tomb Raider Legend developer Crystal
Dark Messiah of Might & Magic, Ubisoft's crunchy first-person role-playing game, is launching a barrage of fantasy action this autumn and we've summoned a handful of new screens, showing some of the characters with whom you'll be trading words - and blows - during your adventure.
The combat in Dark Messiah is brilliantly kinetic, with crucial strikes crumpling your enemy's body and plenty of ways to involve the environment in your killing sprees. And, when the enemies look this detailed, it's
