It's one of the most visually astonishing games around and we've managed to get our hands on an army of new shots of Creative Assembly's Medieval II: Total War, which will be released for PC this winter.
The follow up to Rome: Total War focuses on a different part of history, namely the period from 1080 to 1530 which was a particularly unsettled period in history and featured such conflicts as the Crusades.
From the images below, you'll see the epic scale of the battles Medieval II is capable

Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is set to regenerate the classic real-time strategy series next year, boosting both the scale and the visuals of the futuristic warzone. Take a look at this new shot we've helpfully marked up for your
Based on an upcoming film from famous French director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, The Professional), this third-person action adventure tells the story of a boy who discovers the world is filled with Minimoys - which, we quickly learn, are tiny people who have hair like troll dolls and wear clothes that seem to be made of bug parts.
In fact, everything in the Minimoys' universe seems to be bug parts, if not entire bugs. As the for-some-reason shrunken Arthur and his two Minimoy friends,
This brand new trailer for Half-Life 2: Episode Two hints at a tragic turn in the series' storyline - will Alyx shortly be pushing up daisies? A few seconds in and you'll see Half-Life 2's lovely leading lady in the arms of a Vortigant character who laments, "This is more than anyone can bear," before carefully laying down her motionless body. Is she dead? Is she unconscious? The creators have said that someone's gonna die before the three Half-Life 2 episodes conclude; could this be what they
Last month at E3, Halo developer Bungie dropped off a cargo container full of unanswered questions surrounding the franchise, but only gave us a styrofoam cup worth of explanations.
This week in their update, Bungie maintained that Master Chief's return to the PC will remain a Vista-only experience, but won't take advantage of the cross-platform matchmaking that Vista's Live Anywhere service could offer. Frank "Frankie" O'Connor of Bungie explained that "the gulf - more than two years -

We've got the latest shots of FlatOut 2 - the game for those who like to drive without due care and attention. The sequel manages to combine over-the-top action with incredible physics, the resulting experience being a brutish hard-hitting racer that's more sophisticated than you'd think.
They'll be 40 tracks to batter around, each one made up a destructible environment that allows you to cut corners wherever you see fit. Each of the 16 cars is fully destructible but,

Mercenaries 2: World in Flames, the sequel to developer Pandemic's GTA-in-a-warzone actioner Mercenaries, will skyburst a ton of exciting new features into the series, including cooperative multiplayer, massive environments and - at last! - the ability to swim and steal boats.
As we revealed early last month, Mercenaries 2 will take place in Venezuela, where a tyrant overlord has been getting his hands dirty with the local oil supply, triggering an international invasion by
The only thing better than tearing ass around a racetrack is doing it with murderous intent. That's why we like these nasty new screens from FlatOut 2 - they put the car in carnage. While the game will certainly get a lot of attention for its sadistic minigames, there's still a track-based demolition racer in there, too, and these new screens show more of that core gameplay. Vivendi plans to release FlatOut 2 in July, so we expect more grisly glimpses between now and then.
Good news has arrived for gamers that like a little animal husbandry mixed in with their battle against the forces of evil. The popular cross-platform massively multiplayer Final Fantasy XI is due for an upgrade, and the focal point will be the rearing of the giant, rideable chicken-beasts known as Chocobos. In the upcoming patch, players will be able to acquire the eggs of Chocobos and work to raise them into adulthood, at which point they'll be capable of breeding with other
The annual Game Critics Award winners have finally been released, much to the elation and delight of the winners and the certain soul-crushing dismay of those who didn't quite take home the trophy. We would mention how surprised we are that Excite Truck managed to pull in best racing game honors or that Wii Sports has trumped publisher Electronic Arts' sports dynasties Madden and NCAA Football, as well as the NBA 2K series from 2K Sports - but given that Wii managed to pull in best of show, it
