Irrational Games showed up at X06 packing a new build of the creepy first-person shooter BioShock, freshly confirmed as an Xbox 360 and PC exclusive title. We sat in on the presentation to learn whatever we could.
If you have seen the latest trailer of the game (it's here [PC, 360]on GamesRadar, and it's super disturbing, so you should), you see a little girl hiding in a tube. The first-person protagonist pulls her out and, while he is seemingly prepared to strike at the little girl he
We take it all back. Flagship Studios, the makers of the incredible, edible Hellgate: London can toil away on their masterpiece for as long as they want. This demon-drenched RPG just keeps looking better and better - and the newest batch of screenshots looks hilariously
The fresh Half-Life 2: Episode Two images just have us foaming at the mouth again in anticipation of the eagerly awaited second installment in Gordon Freeman's episodic adventures. Click here [PC, 360, PS3] to see them all.
We've also got new screens of Portal [PC, 360, PS3], and we can't stress enough how amazing this subgame is going to be when it comes packaged with Half-Life 2: Episode Two on PC and next-gen machines next March-ish. Of course, if you've already seen the trailer [PC, 360,
Crossfire, a brand new action shooter for the Xbox 360 and a golden advertising opportunity for ATi-powered PCs, has been announced at X06, Microsoft's latest Xbox 360 event in Barcelona.
Pivotal Games, the creator of the Conflict squad shooter series, is developing Crossfire. Like EA's Army of Two, it casts you as a two-strong team of elite gun-toting warriors in an actioner that emphasizes co-op

The new Alone in the Dark game likes to keep to itself but Microsoft's X06 event has brought out three more images of the game's interesting take on survival-horror. Click the images tab above for the latest death-defying views.
Finding its cinematic influences in action flicks rather than horrors, expect explosions, rapidly spreading fiery infernos, car chases and daring escapes as well as hideous creatures lurking in the shadows. Similarly, developer Eden has been

Continuing the theme of laser-targeted exclusives at Microsoft's current X06 conference, upcoming horror-FPS BioShock was confirmed to be an exclusive release for 360 and PC when it arrives next year.
That's not too much of a change from what we already knew, as a PS3 version was never officially announced - and Microsoft obviously knows that making the game exclusive to 360 would get their offices firebombed by the PC crowd (well, we say firebombed, we mean 'flooded
Get your hands on a PS3... easy
You probably won't be able to buy one this November, but it shouldn't be too hard to get some time with a PlayStation 3 - behind glass, anyway. Sony has announced plans to install 15,000 playable demo kiosks of PS3 at retail locations in the US and Canada in time for the system's launch - five times what the company offered for PS2, our sister site Next Generation reports. It should be pretty simple to figure out if the thing's worth $600 when you see it in
If you don't already know, Sam & Max are stars of stage and screen - well, comic books and cartoons, actually - but most importantly, one of the most beloved adventure games of all time: 1993's Sam & Max Hit the Road.
Like many epic stories, Sam & Max have gone through a dark middle arc in their tale: publisher LucasArts suddenly cancelled the sequel, Sam & Max Freelance Police, very late in its development. However, last September, a renegade group of ex-LucasArts employees announced that
Making pragmatic use of today's terrorist-filled headlines, the real-time strategy mash-up Field Ops puts armchair generals to the test by sending them down to the battlefield with a first-person shooting mode.
You'll control the US Special Forces as you span the globe and hunt down terrorists in Cuba, Ukraine, Afghanistan - and eventually all the way back to Manhattan, New York. Each environment looks as wildly different as they sound, and today's batch of shots are fired from the jungles of
Remember that messy lawsuit between Marvel Comics and Cryptic Studios? The former accused the latter of copyright infringement because the massively multiplayer online game City of Heroes featured parts like claws and spandex. Creative (but not too creative) players promptly made clever variations like "Spydorr-Mann" and "Wulvereen," which prompted Marvel to bring down Thor's hammer.
Well, they made nice, and now we see they're making even more: Microsoft announced Marvel Universe Online, an
