The PS2 isnt going away without a fight. Every few weeks we think its time to finally tuck the little guy into bed one last time, and move on to bigger and shinier hardware; then a game like Odin Sphere is announced, a gorgeous 2D side-scrolling Action RPG, and we promise to never threaten our little buddy again.
Developed by Vanillaware, creators of the Sega Saturn cult hit Princess Crown, Odin Sphere plops players into the rather important shoes of Gwendolyn, daughter of the head honcho of
Gears of War, Okami and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess are among the nominees for "Best Game" in the seventh annual Game Developers Choice Awards.
This year's GDCA, the awards program where honors are bestowed to developers by developers, will take place during GDC 2007 on March 7, the ceremony to be hosted by legend Tim Schafer of Double Fine Productions.
Joining Gears, Okami and Zelda as "Best Game" nominees are Oblivion and Wii Sports. Out of a total of eight categories in the
It's the end of another great year for gamers. Two new systems launched. Two handhelds waged bloody battle. And next gen gaming got a big kick in the pants - thanks to a year of lonely rule by the Xbox 360. PC gaming fought fire with nukes, waging its battle against the console-based onslaught. In short, it ruled.
How do we handle this? We're handing out our gleaming Platinum Chalice to those games and systems which gave us the business. No boring list of 37 different strategy games, divided
What's hotter than watching a cute princess kiss a fat, middle-aged plumber? Well, anything really, but given the headline above, the answer should be obvious: watching a cute princess kiss another cute princess. It's sexy, it's vaguely taboo and it's pleasantly devoid of bristling mustaches and lingering sewage odors.
It's much more common to see girl-on-girl kisses in other media, but it happens in games more often than you'd think. To prove it to you, we've collected the very best ones and
The distinctive and beautiful Okami, Capcom's god-who's-a-dog watercolor PS2 platformer, won't be turning up over here until September. But, like a news-hunting canine with a nose for updates, we've dug up a new gameplay video to remind you why Okami will be so special.
It's all in Japanese, so we're still unsure as to the finer points of Okami's plot, but here's the lowdown: the canine heroine is the physical embodiment of the goddess Amaterasu, who has beamed down to Earth to save the world

The distinctive and beautiful Okami, Capcom's god-who's-a-dog watercolour PS2 platformer, won't be turning up over here until early next year. But, like a news-hunting canine with a nose for updates, we've dug up a new gameplay video to remind you why Okami will be so special.
It's all in Japanese, so we're still none the wiser as to the finer points of Okami's plot, but here's the lowdown: Okami is the physical embodiment of goddess Amaterasu, who has beamed down to
It's a good time to be a pirate. Captain Jack Sparrow is packing theaters once again this summer and game fans are getting not one, but two One Piece games later this year. And on top of that, we've got 16 brand new shots from the two-player beat 'em up Grand Adventure.
For more on the rubbery, fish-headed cast of pirate people, head over to our earlier preview.
Okami is still a few months away from its US release, but Capcom has graced us with a new look at the weirdly beautiful platform-hopper that casts players as the sun goddess Amaterasu, who has taken the shape of a dog (possibly for tax
Pretty soon, you'll be able to play the entire Cartoon Network lineup of new-to-America anime. Granted, many of these games aren't too hot (Inuyasha, for one), but the last One Piece game surprised us all by being a mindless-but-fun pirate
Activision has snapped up the rights to publish games based on the upcoming DreamWorks film Over the Hedge, a computer animated feature from the makers of Shrek and Madagascar.
Despite releasing several screenshots, there's very little information available about the game, not even which format it will appear on. But as the Madagascar game appeared on every handheld and console, we can most likely expect a similar multiformat release.
As for the film, it has Bruce Willis providing the voice
