What's the result when you mix a Jerry Bruckheimer live-action extravaganza, a bit of CG magic, and adorable rodents? A bizarre question to be sure, but Disney will answer it this summer with G-Force, a family-friendly action flick starring a series of guinea pig secret agents. Smirk if you'd like, but kids love guinea pigs, and where there's scent of a new franchise that kids might go crazy over, you'd better believe Disney has a video game
When we last left the Galactic Civilizations universe, the evil Drengin Empire just about had everything - and everyone - rolled up. So, at the start of the upcoming strategy expansion pack, called Dark Avatar, the Drengin reign over the galaxy is so complete that their worst enemy is now from within. In-fighting has split their grip on the empire, and the most powerful faction, the Korath, now demand the extermination of all non-Drengin races.
You are the Dark Avatar, chief of the Drengin
It takes a while to separate the new stuff in Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords from the really new stuff in the Dark Avatar expansion pack.

You won't find any big breasted babes or recycled Warcraft-in-space gameplay here for mass appeal's sake. Galactic Civilizations II: Twilight of the Arnor sticks to what the series does best with deep 4X turn-based space strategy and more technology to research, ships to build, and planets to conquer.

In what we assume is publisher Atari’s effort to conserve paper, yet another beloved pad and paper RPG is being turned into a video game. This time around it’s Gamma World, and the video game iteration has a lot of potential. The game is a third-person shooter with the same setting as the original TSR game: a post-apocalyptic world ripe with tongue-in-cheek humor and everything from androids to talking trees to mutant animals carrying handguns.

We're playing the Gears of War PC's new King of the Hill mode, which has just seen four other players kill each other viciously from behind one after another in a hilarious cartoon chain of death. As the legendary lead designer CliffyB said to me earlier in the day, the new multiplayer game is indeed, "f---ing hilarious."
Gears of War has shifted over four million copies on Xbox 360 alone, won countless Game of the Year awards and become one of the most popular online shooters of

(9MB, MOV)We've sent teams of crack operatives into tense close-combat action in Rainbow Six, steered one-man stealth specialist Sam Fisher into the murky conspiracies of Splinter Cell, and taken squad-based combat out into the great beyond in Ghost Recon. What's left for the Tom Clancy line to sink its political teeth into?Put simply: war. This is the kind of filthy war that stretches out as far as the eye can see, with explosions and shrapnel spraying with every click of the mouse.Ghost Recon
Most of the E3 2011 news regarding Ghost Recon Online surrounded the newly announced version for the Wii U, which was demonstrated at a Nintendo event and tucked into a corner of the publisher's booth. But while that version is still a way off, the PC release is already playable and pretty close to its initial closed beta release – plus, it's a free-to-play title, which means you won't have to drop a dime to get the core experience, though you can invest a little coin to enhance your player and possibilities.
