A pickup truck... that's a convertible? Heresy, said conventional car-making wisdom. Shut up, said Chevrolet, and produced the SSR just to prove 'em wrong.

Today, two totally different bits of news about horror-FPS F.E.A.R. hit our inbox. It's not too hard to decide which is more interesting: it depends entirely on which platform you game on. For PC gamers, the multiplayer F.E.A.R. Combat pack adds - free of charge - scads of new content to the game: 10 modes, 22 maps, 12 weapons... it's pretty nuts.
