For all you gaming addicts looking for a fix, check out these treats:
Opoona - Wii
A very unusual little game for the Wii that combines community and relationship-building elements with a traditional RPG - a bit like, say, Animal Crossing but with a proper adventure to work through. Even better is the way it uses the Wiis Remote and Nunchuck, allowing you to move with the analog stick and battle by swinging the remote.
Crazi Taxi: Fare Wars - PSP
We reckon this is just about old enough now
According to legends of the ancient Greeks, who gave the West everything from Aristotle to organized orgies, Zeus decided to give mankind the first woman, Pandora. It was meant to be a punishment to us all for stealing fire from the gods. But we're glad Mr. Lightning bolts gave us Pandora and her box of evils.
If he didn't, we wouldn't have Legendary: The Box to look forward to. You'll start off as Charles Decker, an art thief who unwittingly winds up opening Pandora 's Box in the New York
The premise behind Legendary: The Box is so simple that we're beating our heads against the wall for not thinking of it first. Take the balls-to-the-wall rush of Call of Duty, mix it with mythological creatures like golems, griffons and werewolves, then pump it full of chunky rock guitar riffs that pound through the speakers like a summer blockbuster. If that setup doesn't pique your interest, then move along to your $20 budget checkers game and make room for some real gamers starving for a
Poor, poor Charles Deckard. As the unenviable thief duped into opening Pandora’s Box, he’s now the unlucky bastard caught between a plague of mythical hell-beasts and two ancient, warring factions that wish to control them. A battle unlike any other is now upon us all. Minotaurs, werewolves and golems: oh my! In our last hands-on with Legendary (formerly Legendary: The Box), we bravely fought bloodthirsty griffins in the streets of

Sony has an interesting idea with their new card game, Legends of Norrath: Oathbound. The game is deeply embedded into EverQuest I and II, while at the same time it's a completely independent game with its own rules, players and, well, cards.
To keep it tied to EQ there are certain "loot cards," found in booster packs, that give your EQ characters real virtual world items. And while playing EQ, Oathbound players have a chance of finding boosters from slain monsters. You can also
We've been seeing a lot of LEGO Batman recently, mostly in the form of new screens, but it wasn't until this week's Game Developer's Conference that we got to see the plasticized caped crusader in action. And we saw a lot, from the suits and gadgets that Batman and Robin will use to fight crime, to the missions where you'll take control of some of their arch-nemeses and go toe-to-toe against Gotham's finest. And although we can't yet say how it
Few franchises are as ripe for a LEGO once-over as Batman. Unlike his fellow comic book chums, Bruce Wayne is a truly self-made hero. Born with no Kryptonian spoon in his mouth and avoiding radioactive daddy-long-legs, his strength stems from determination and smarts. The gazillion bucks inherited from slain Papa Wayne didn’t hurt either. No surprise then, that the self-made man and the make-it-yourself brick sensation meld together so
Deep within your brain, there’s a little lobe that desperately wants you to act like a nine year-old. This little lobe is in control every time you queue up The Princess Bride on Netflix or decide to buy a candy bar to reward yourself for a trip to the dentist. In that lobe, there’s also a little box with all your favorite moments from the original Star Wars or Indiana Jones or Batman movies, along with your memories of building
If you thought last week’s trailer for the fourth Indiana Jones film felt a little flat with its combo of CG locales and one very old Harrison Ford, then you’d be happy to hear that you can trust LEGO Indiana Jones as a better outlet for your nostalgia. Developed by Traveller’s Tales - the team behind LEGO Star Wars - Indy will traverse locales from each of the first three films, while embracing youngsters who aren’t
The decision to immortalise the wise-cracking hero in LEGO form is clear: the Indiana Jones films are almost as iconic as Star Wars, and their cheeky humour runs parallel with the tongue-in-cheek approach of the recent LEGO games. With the building blocks already in place from the Star Wars games, it hasn’t been too difficult for Traveller’s Tales to whip the engine into shape and recreate the original three films in a style fit for
