By now you’ve read about thenvisioned by This is Vegas’ developers: open world on the bottom, Vegas style in the middle, and partying at the top. At Midway’s Gamers Day, we got a full serving of partying with a dash of Vegas style, but no open world play (ie, driving and shooting) was forthcoming. Our demo began with a look at the party scene, which takes place in a dance club environment filled with interlinking mini-games.
It’s absolutely inevitable that Midway and Surreal’s This is Vegas will be compared to the vistas of Rockstar’s GTA IV. And why wouldn’t it? GTA pioneered the sandbox format and will probably revolutionise it once again when the game arrives.

Chances are pretty good that you didn't play the original Thrillville last year... but a whole bunch of kids sure did. So many went for the ride, in fact, that the amusement park simulator is getting a sequel this October. Thrillville: Off the Rails embraces its youth appeal by pushing everything to be bigger, wilder, sillier, friendlier and, of course, barfier.
As theme park tycoon Mortimer's trusted niece or nephew, you still hold the dream job of building, designing and test riding every
Tiberium. In the Command & Conquer Tiberium universe its both a boon to mankind and an immediate threat to its very existence. Although the mysterious alien crystal helped advance technology and can provide enough energy to fuel an empire, it also infects everything it touches and threatens to engulf the entire planet in a layer of sickly green shards. But its difficult to really appreciate the irony of humanitys dependence on the very thing that could destroy it when youre poking a tiny
Forget global warming - the greatest threat to planet Earth and the survival of mankind is a green radioactive extraterrestrial crystal that is spreading like a cancer across the entire surface of the globe. Or maybe Deal or No Deal.
“Tiberium is the catalyst for everything, it’s our One Ring, our Matrix, our Force, and that’s why it’s the name,” says executive producer Christopher Plummer.
For many seasons, Tiger Woods PGA Tour has relied on an arcade-like feel that gave any player with functional thumbs a -15 handicap. Good news though - from what we saw at Electronic Arts' Summer Showcase, Tiger has shed his quirky strokes and come out swinging the hammer with a more simulation-based method of play. The control scheme has been simplified, taking what worked in the past and applying more realistic effects to make the whole experience come alive.
In 07, the entire swing runs off

Some four and a half months ago, Sierra bought this first person shooter from Atari. Since then, the storyline was completely rewritten, new voice talent was brought in, and the project got a top-to-bottom reboot. Having played it, we can honestly say that TimeShift has come along nicely - it's way better than before.
To recap: In the near future, you play as Col. Michael Swift (Ret), an ex-test pilot and decorated soldier. His wife having died in childbirth, he's dedicated the rest of his

His head comes apart in a haze of red and gore, his knees crumple and hes dead. Then the voodoo happens: his collapsed legs unfold in an impossible fashion, his body straightens and the gobs of matter and the red mist reform into a head. Theres something disquieting about watching someones head reforming in front of you.
TimeShift is a first-person shooter where the passage of time is under your control. From within your timesuit you can slow, stop and reverse the temporal flow,
On a crowded shelf of shooters, TimeShift boasts one unique weapon: the ability to manipulate time. You play Michael Swift, a test pilot who willingly dons a Quantum Suit for the government to become the world's first time-traveler. While the experiment works, letting you journey from 2007 to 1911 and back, you return to an alternate present-day ruled by a fascist dictator, Krone. Worse still, your knowledge of timeshifting immediately makes you a wanted man. You'll need to take full advantage
