Controlling all of human existence? Yeah, we've done that. But this summer, 2K Games will publish CivCity: Rome, an intriguing sounding spin-off from Sid Meier's popular Civilization series of games. This time, you'll focus on just one city, but what a city it will be.

One of the things the team behind The Godfather likes to brag about is how cleverly their game's plot syncs up with that of Francis Ford Coppola's 1972 gangster epic. And after playing through the game, we're inclined to agree with them.

Due for release in spring, the new content will herald the arrival of stuntmen to the lot, a mad dog bunch who will bring with them a varied repertoire of dangerous tricks and turns to add a
Joining the likes of Blizzard (World of Warcraft) and Sony Online Entertainment (EverQuest), Square Enix held its first annual Final Fantasy XI Fan Festival in Santa Monica over the blustery, unseasonably chill March 10th weekend.
To fans of online role-playing games, the community is as important - if not moreso - than the gameplay itself. Pushing that sense of community into the real world is a great way to reinforce the relationship between fans ... as well as rack up some tidy merch sales.
