Edinburgh based developer Outerlight is working on a commercial PC release for The Ship this September, a game that originally started life as a Half-Life mod.
Set on a 1930's steam liner, the game works as a target specific Deathmatch where every player is given the name of a certain character that must be killed. This means the target must be stalked, hunted down and taken out with whatever weaponry is available.
The winner of the game is either the last hunter to
Here's a first peek at some screenshots and a trailer from the Hollywood-inspired real-time strategy romp, Moscow to Berlin: Red Siege. Set in World War II on the Eastern Front, Moscow to Berlin puts history and action in the same room and lets them fight it out. This pick-up-and-play explosion-fest will enable you to break the stalemate in the east as the commander of the Russian or German forces.
This budget-minded title will be priced nicely at $29.99, and looks like an RTS recharge for

EA's Redwood Shores studio is currently developing a next-gen RPG under the working title Project Gray Company and is inviting gamers to offer comments on the design of the game as more details are revealed.
Few details with regard to format choice and gameplay style have been released to date. Instead the game is described as a next-gen RPG providing an "experience that allows the player to be the hero in an expansive open world".
We also know that the game will use the
First-person fantasy role-players may think that they have everything that they need to make it through the long summer with Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. But Oblivion is so engrossing that we've already burned through even that mountain of content, and have no multiplayer to extend our gameplay. Worry not; there is a fireball-hurling, swashbuckling savior on the way. Just in time for summer, Dark Messiah of Might and Magic promises to be the second coming of first-person fantasy adventure on the
Today, Eidos released these shots supposedly from Xbox, PS2, PC and 360 ... but we're pretty sure that these are actually from development hardware and not necessarilly indicative of what the game will look like on Xbox and PS2. Still, you can get a flavor for the game, so peep to your hearts content.
Activision has snapped up the rights to publish games based on the upcoming DreamWorks film Over the Hedge, a computer animated feature from the makers of Shrek and Madagascar.
Despite releasing several screenshots, there's very little information available about the game, not even which format it will appear on. But as the Madagascar game appeared on every handheld and console, we can most likely expect a similar multiformat release.
As for the film, it has Bruce Willis providing the voice

THQ has announced first-person shooter Frontline: Fuel of War for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, which offers up cutting-edge military tech in order to let you experience the "frontlines of tomorrow". And they're not talking about Saturday's shopping crush.
The team behind the game, Kaos Studios, had some fundamental input into Battlefield 2, so it's little surprise to see that Fuel of War offers some 60 vehicles and weapons, including next-gen assault tanks and remote control

Just in case you're hungry, here is a handful of oven-fresh screenshots of Crytek's Crysis, a phenomenal-looking shooter from the team behind Far Cry.
Crysis takes place on a chain of stunning tropical islands - the kinds that make Far Cry's look more dull than delicious - featuring more foliage than you can shake a wood chipper at. In among this splendid jungle, disaster is looming in the form of a two-mile-high alien spaceship that's crashed down in the middle of the
More details have emerged regarding EA's much-anticipated Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars, the sequel to the biggest real-time strategy franchise ever on the PC.
A third race will join the decade-old skirmish between the forces of Nod and the Global Defense Initiative, and new weapons will be available to set your monitor alight. Units such as the Mammoth tank and Orca aircraft will return, and the game will be powered by the technology behind the epic RTS games Battle for Middle-Earth I
Great news: the post-apocalyptic world is a massively-multiplayer, high-caliber heaven. Huxley, the Korean bred-and-born MMO, will enable first-person shooter action inside of a persistent online universe.
Lock and load with new images of the Sapiens, Alternatives and Hybrids - the three races spawned from the ashes of humankind. Why the heck do these in-game images look so damn good? One big reason is that Huxley is built with the same technology behind Unreal Tournament 2007, the highly
