First, let's cover the part of this preview that WWE fans really want to hear: the confirmed roster for WWE SmackDown! vs RAW 2007 so far includes Johnny Nitro, The Undertaker and Shelton Benjamin, along with the previously revealed John Cena, Triple H, Rey Mysterio, Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit and Booker T. With that out of the way, we can continue.
We've tangled with the Xbox 360 version of SmackDown! before, but this is the first chance we've had to really take our time with it. And while
In an announcement that will likely send more than a few Nintendoggies to the pound, EA is letting several different breeds of The Sims 2: Pets off the leash in October.
Your addictive sims family won't be complete until you've adopted one of over 40 breeds of dogs and cats that you'll be able to customize, breed, train and dress up. Highly trained pets can even take jobs in the service, show business or security industries as seeing-eye dogs, circus acts or ferocious attack... kittens.
Chaos, mayhem, uproar and riots. That's what GamesRadar seems to have triggered with last week's feature, "The Ten Greatest Years in Videogame History ". We might as well have burned down the internet, for all the email and forum flaming we inspired. Some folks praised us, some wanted us crucified, and one called us "wankers", ignoring that the feature only covered the US market.
Granted, we set ourselves up. We knew this feature was so vast, so subjective and so dependent upon reader
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance doesn't really need a serious introduction - just take the action RPG elements of the two mega-popular X-Men Legends games and add about 20 new characters. It's not the gameplay that'll bowl anyone over (at least from what we've seen so far), but the sheer amount of Marvel-ness is staggering.
At the recent San Diego Comic-Con, three new playable heroes were revealed: The Fantastic Four's Invisible Woman and Human Torch, and Iceman of X-Men fame. We saw these
While it's ostensibly a crime movie, The Godfather seems a weird choice for a video-game adaptation. There's violence, sure, but it's far outweighed in screen time by ruminations on familial responsibility, weddings, funerals, grouchy conversations in poorly lit rooms and boiling pots of pasta.
That's probably why EA chose to make its version of The Godfather about the Mafia's foot soldiers instead of its stuffy, slow-moving generals. Opening in 1945, the Godfather game follows the plot of the
.hack is back.
More than two and a half years since the final installment in the original .hack saga wrapped up, a new story is beginning. Set seven years after the original game - and 11 years from right now - .hack//G.U. presents a world where online gaming has become synonymous with everyday life. If anything, that future world seems more like 11 minutes from now, with controversies over game addiction, game violence and governments monitoring their citizens making up the headlines on its
Sega hands over its precious balls to Travellers Tales, a British developer you probably know from... well, chances are you probably dont know them. The developer has had success with Sega in the past, creating Sonic R and Sonic 3D Blast. That said, the company has crafted more mediocre games than great ones. Should Super Monkey Ball fans be concerned that someone other than Sega is handling their favorite simians? From what weve seen so far, Super Monkey Ball Adventure contains many of
The Xenosaga series, like any great story-driven role player, is filled with many different characters. Each has his or her own secrets, and his or her own path through the world. Each has a different look, a different tone of voice, a different way of thinking or fighting.
Xenosaga doesn't limit things to a single world - it's a galaxy filled with alien menaces and shadowy organizations that manipulate the lives of people for their own ends. This cast of memorable characters must fight
The annual evolution of Madden christens "the season" for every would-be athlete, coach, or super fan trapped inside the sweaty cushions of their couches, and Madden NFL 07 is proving no exception.
Due to hit stores in August, 07's overhauls to the interface and - more importantly - the running game are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. In 07, you'll be able to step up as the lead blocker and crush any oncoming attempt to foil your running game, then meld right back into the light feet
Two years. EA Canada spent two whole years locked away in an undisclosed ice fishing shanty, drinking beer and dreaming up the next generation in the NHL franchise. Hockey fans are getting a little tired of the waiting game, but after this year's crazy playoff season, our pitchforks and torches have been hushed momentarily. EA's Summer Showcase brought a little cool to the hot days of July in the form of a very playable NHL 07. From what we witnessed, we may need to relocate our rusty
