Prey is one of the most anticipated shooters ever - if only because it's had such a long time to work people up. In fact, this first-person shooter has taken longer than America's entire moon landing mission, from JFK's "We choose to go to the moon" speech to the final splashdown of Apollo 17. After 11 years in the making, Prey is finally here. Almost.
The demo contains the first hour(ish) of the single-player game and two multiplayer maps. And while your character Tommy doesn't exactly choose

Have you grabbed the free upgrade for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter yet? If not, click here and get it now - there's fresh new content out for the hit military shooter. Updates for both the PC and Xbox 360 versions of GRAW became available at the same time, but only the PC version is free.
Mind you, the additional content isn't the same across both platforms. GRAW's Multiplayer Pack 1 adds the sorely missed deathmatch mode to multiplayer fans on the PC, and adds even more
Atari released some action-packed new screens today of "what not to do" in the upcoming racer Test Drive Unlimited. We feel compelled to add a disclaimer of sorts, as people that get squeamish around car accidents may not want to take a very close look at these shots. No bodies are thrown clear, but there's enough buckling steel and showering sparks to rival the accident-prone Burnout series. Our favorite is the screen featuring the fire truck... how lucky would it be to wreck into a truck
Sony just released some more details regarding Final Fantasy XI 's new Chocobo breeding program. Included are descriptions of some of the various breeds of the giant birds most adventurers use as mounts for quick travel.
Originally bred for armored combat in the nation of San d'Oria, these black Chocobos are capable of wearing heavy armor. However, since heavily armored cavalry have gone out of fashion among the realms of Vana'diel, these birds have become extremely rare... almost
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.
Interview with a Made Man, the Mafia-themed crime game apparently lost during publisher Acclaim's 2004 bankruptcy and subsequent closure, has been given a second chance to impress the Don on the PS2 and PC. The game will hit Europe this September, and while a US publisher has yet to be announced, we've got a family-sized selection of screens to hold you over in the meantime.
Currently being worked on by SilverBack Studios, the game sounds promising, with 17 chapters of organized crime spanning

Xbox 360 gamers will soon get a taste of the action, too, with the download heading to Xbox Live Marketplace "soon after the PC release," says co-publisher 3D Realms (though it was earmarked to launch alongside the PC download today). Download the 450MB demo through any of the five mirror sites listed below.
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,
