Dark Sector, the bloody and brooding third-person action-adventure headed for PS3 and Xbox 360 this autumn, features one of the coolest weapons you'll ever see. It's known as 'the glaive' - a dinner-plate-sized throwing star that can be used like a Frisbee/boomerang/shuriken hybrid. We had a chance to see first-hand what it was capable of. And boy, is it ever
Your captor walks over to the wall, casually plugging a handheld drill into an electrical outlet while he curses your name and tells you exactly why you deserve this. Before you know it, the drill is being thrust into your head, bits of blood and flesh splattering outwards as the screen shakes violently. This is the world of The Darkness – gritty, degenerate and malevolent. Its a strikingly beautiful, disturbingly intense game, a first person shooter descent into the world of mob violence
So you've got a shiny new copy of Virtua Fighter 5. You've heard everyone raving about it - "the deepest fighting game ever," "the best competitive fighter there is," et cetera. But you've probably also heard one thing that makes you uneasy: "Virtua Fighter is difficult to get into." They're not kidding. It can be a daunting task to break through that hard outer shell to reach the rich, creamy center of VF5. What's a complete noob to
Expansion packs dont come much more expansive than this. This is a lot more than just an add-on for Oblivion - this is a 180-degree directional shift for Bethesdas epic RPG. When this 30-hour-long pack is available for download on Xbox Live Marketplace at the end of June, youd better pack your possessions in a box and have a straightjacket on hand, because Shivering Isles will have you foaming like a dog on a boat full of

Hosting a party can be a real chore. You've got to clean up, prepare food, choose music, and hide all the dead bodies if you want your guests to have a good time. Or, if you're lazy like us, you can get them liquored up to the point where they don't even notice the dead bodies, saving you hours of cleanup time. The next time you host a LAN or Mario party, skip all the dirty work and impress your friends with some ultra geeky imbibes by serving up our Top 7 Digital
Resident Evil 5 facts are still scarce, despite this A-grade five-quel being announced way, way back in July 2005. The lack of updates isnt that surprising when you consider our moles in Capcom are saying the games script hasnt even been finished yet. What have they been up to all this time? Well, heres literally everything we know… and a bit we, uh,
Its difficult not to have a soft spot for likeable cartoon shooter Timesplitters, even if it did look a little bit, well, French. But next-gen debut Haze is set to take a more serious outlook. Gone are the pop culture stereotypes, in are moral questions about life, death and the life of a soldier. No,
Theres going to be a game of Lost. You know it. We know it. Quite what that game will involve, though, is a mystery of far more, well, Lost proportions. A chronic lack of any real information may have hampered things up until now, but this year coders Ubisoft and Lost money-men, channel ABC, are going to be a lot more forthcoming on the info front, you mark our
