Following the that we posted at the end of April, publisher 2K Games has just released further images of the long-awaited mentalist shooting sequel.
Serious Sam II continues the storyline of Serious Sam Second Encounter but, let's face it, the significance of the narrative is negligible when you've got 45 new enemy types to dispatch via the medium of relentless first-person arcade shootery.
The game's seven environments house over 40 levels, across which you'll also be able to make use
If there's been a theme at this year's E3 (besides new hardware announcements), it's got to be either zombies or first-person shooters.
Falling firmly into the latter category is Monolith Productions' ultra-spooky PC gun-'em-down FEAR - of which you can see the very latest screens on the right.
First Encounter Assault Recon (to give the game its full, slightly preposterous, name) sees an unidentified paramilitary force infiltrate an aerospace compound and take hostages - but issue no
This latest World of Warcraft expansion provides players with some pursuits that are more commonly associated with first-person shooters, such as that perennial favourite capture the flag.
Once within the Battlegrounds playing field - which was apparently designed by one of the level designers from the original Quake, although Blizzard wouldn't confirm which one (John Romero, maybe?) - players simply locate a minigame hub and wait to join in the merriment.

Just look at those screenshots. OK, there are only two of them but, let's face it, at first glance, Ultimate Spider-Man looks lush.
Yes, we're suckers for cel-shaded games but, even if you're not, Ultimate still sounds an attractive proposition. Players are given the opportunity to play as both Spider-Man and a super-villain across expanded, free-roaming environments, including the addition of Queens, New York.
We're also promised diverse gameplay and improved combat systems (there are two
We've just uncovered the first ever screenshots of the curiously-named Full Spectrum Warrior Ten Hammers, the sequel to the critically acclaimed squad-based tactical military romp.
Like its predecessor, it's being developed by the well-regarded Pandemic Studios and again puts players in charge of multiple infantry squads in a variety of hostile environments.
The key improvement over the first game seems to be an enhanced online multiplayer mode, while the game retains the sense of
We have, at long last, uncovered screenshots of Operation Flashpoint 2 - the sequel to 2001's fantastic free-roaming shooter - which is as eagerly awaited as it is delayed.
The game - currently in development at Prague's Bohemia Interactive Studio - was originally due to be released at the end of last year, but is now scheduled to hit shelves in 2006.
Its mission-based campaigns take gamers through fictional conflicts based upon authentic events during the years around 1970 and it will,
Some new screenshots of Fable The Lost Chapters, the extended PC version of the original Xbox game, have been released unto the world.
Boasting a deeper storyline than the Xbox original, the PC game will also carry reams of additional content.
The Lost Chapters will feature more areas to explore, more monsters to fight, additional side quests to pursue and extra storylines to follow, as well as a whole host of new items, weaponry, spells and expressions.
As well as being released for PC,
Take 2 imprint 2K Games has just released the first official shots of Serious Sam II, the crazed shooting sequel that's due to hit PC and Xbox later this year.
"Gamers have been anxiously anticipating a full sequel ever since Serious Sam The Second Encounter was released back in 2002," comments 2K bod Christoph Hartmann.
"With a brand-new engine and greatly expanded gameplay, we think fans will agree that the return of Sam has been well worth the wait."
The game will be unveiled
As European players of Blizzard's hugely popular MMORPG were having their first taste of the game's controversial Honor system over the weekend, World of Warcraft's lead designer, Kalgan, told the game's official site forums that Blizzard are considering implementing a dishonor system to counter some of the problems that players have experienced since the Honor patch was introduced.
The Honor system, which offers rewards for killing members of the enemy faction, has been widely opposed by
Following the recent trend of shoehorning Mario into the Gamecube versions of games, EA is now planning to bring Mario and pals to The Sims 2 on Nintendo's console.
Speaking in an interview with IGN, EA's Scot Amos revealed the Gamecube incarnation of the title had been "given some custom content", leading the interviewer to ask if Mario would be making an appearance, to which Amos responded, "I cannot answer that question just yet. Hopefully at E3." That's a big 'yes' in our book.
