Just in time to cement hero Rico Rodriguez as this year's most unconventional CIA agent in a game, we've got new media for Just Cause's winning combination of tropical scenery and huge explosions. Check out these 360 stills of a stealthy infiltration, Rodriguez-style.
As if gatecrashing a gentleman's club in the crater of a dormant volcano isn't high adventure enough, Just Cause will let you do it by throwing Rodriguez out of a perfectly good plane and paragliding in. Of course, you could
This mini-trailer shows off a number of the non-wheeled vehicles in the game - namely, a wicked fast speedboat and aircraft ranging from a helicopter to a fighter jet. It also shows a bit about just how easy it is to commandeer these devices using a grappling hook gun, your parachute and a grip that would make Superman himself wince in pain if you shook hands.

We've managed to fish out a new trailer of THQ's Jaws Unleashed - due for release for PS2, Xbox and PC in July - the underwater action game where you take control of the killer shark.
The game's story mode is spread across 10 different environments and has Chief Brody's son Michael attempting to capture Jaws. On the other hand the killing machine under your control has to create havoc in the water by attacking swimmers and making use of
We'll just get the obvious out of the way - Just Cause is essentially a prettier, slightly more featured version of Grand Theft Auto, sipping an umbrella drink. You've got the massive, open-ended environments, 180 land, sea and air vehicles to play with and countless thugs who all want you dead. So what's the hook? You've got the unofficial backing of the United States and a big ol' tropical playground to blow apart.
And ironically enough, it's literally a hook that makes the game move. If you

Electronic Arts, creator of From Russia with Love, Agent Under Fire, GoldenEye: Rogue Agent and quite a few more 007 games, has ended its licence to produce Bond games three years early, with Call of Duty and Quake publisher Activision taking over the Bond brand.
EA had originally signed up to create titles featuring the suave super spy until 2009 but now the owners of the Bond brand, MGM Interactive and EON Productions, have gifted Activision the exclusive rights to 007
We've already covered the basics of Justice League Heroes in our earlier preview, so today we're just bringing a few new screenshots of the action RPG for you to nibble on. It's also worth noting that Tomb Raider and Hitman publisher Eidos will be distributing the game in North America and Europe - so how many logos will we have to press start through just to play the damn game?

Last summer's street racer hit Juiced could well be gearing up for a spin on next-gen consoles.
The news that Juiced publisher THQ has bought Juice Games, the UK developer behind the car-modder, is revealed in today's issue of trade mag MCV and is a sure indication that we can expect more Juiced in the future.
Originally released for PC, PS2 and Xbox, Juiced cashed in on the popularity of Need for Speed with its own take on street racing, and ultimately enjoyed considerable success itself,

Promising-looking street racer Juiced - originally due to be released this month by Acclaim for PS2, Xbox and PC - has survived the company's bankruptcy and will still see release - although it's not yet clear who will publish it or when. The UK-developed game was actually funded not by Acclaim but by independent backers, leaving coders Juiced Games free to find a new publisher for the title.While the game has drawn comparisons to Need For Speed: Underground, unlike NFS the game features
Acclaim have revealed more details of the car modification system in their street life-style racer Juiced. They tell us there are approximately 7.2 trillion styling combinations. That's one hell of an approximation and we're not counting, but we'll take their word that there's a huge range of bits to fiddle about with.A whole range of performance classes are provided by the 47 cars included in Juiced. Thing is, everything costs money and you'll be fairly short of the green stuff when you kick
