Whenever you're done slavering over the latest meager scraps of information on Grand Theft Auto IV, the developers of Mercenaries 2: World in Flames would like to remind you that the sequel to one of the best GTA clones ever is also coming out later this year. And with the free-roaming fireworks show they've planned, fans of military hardware and mass destruction might want to divert their attention from urban crime long enough to give it a serious look.
The setup is simple: Venezuela is in
The internet is probably the greatest invention since sliced bread. While it's lame to utilize an overused cliché to praise the power of the web, we'd like to think that having untold power to look at pr0n, post a blog, stream music and watch old episodes of The X-Files at the same time must come from a pretty damn good invention. Plain white bread it ain't.
And thusly, we've lumped some of our more entertaining findings on this here page. Take a gander and experience the magic that Al
Now that we're almost midway through this gloriously lazy season, you've settled into the groove of either summer school, some lame-ass job or sleeping in until 3pm.

The new style E3 Media & Business Summit kicks off in Santa Monica later this week and while we're looking forward to the prospect of spending four days talking up, slacking off, gawping at and - yes - even playing video games. As invited attendees, we're keeping our excitement in check and approaching the show with a degree of reservation.
Why? Well, no one - including the peeps dealing with the sprawling shebang's logistics - can really have any idea of what it's going to be like until the
Teamvision may sound like a meaningless FIFA term, but its actually a new “adaptive” AI system at the heart of Winning Elevens PS3 debut. The game “learns” how to counter your playing style, forcing you to exploit the pitch for gaps - making radar use vital. For example, you cant just keep running down the flanks and crossing for cheap goals. Producer Seabass believes that Winning Eleven shouldnt be played like a “videogame” which can be broken by scientific
You may have noticed that your football-mad buddies are walking around with a glint in their eyes lately. Thats because the era known as the Dark Ages of Football Games will be ending this month, as the much-beloved 2K gridiron series is revived on the Xbox 360 and PS3 in the form of All-Pro Football 2K8. While it may – or may not – be everything its long-suffering fans are hoping for, its undoubtedly a loud shot across EAs bow in the newly revived Football Wars this
"Recently I was playing against someone and he was fighting like Stone Cold Steve Austin," says Taku Chihaya, director of the new SmackDown!, "Not because of the character, but just because he never stopped. He was going crazy."
This is what SmackDown's all about. It's not about the wrestlers just looking like the real thing - although they do, right down to the Sandman's grimace and Lashley's terrifying biceps - it's about them feeling like the real thing. It's about Rey Mysterio bouncing
What if you dropped into an online game and always knew what you were supposed to be doing? We're not talking about a causal Halo match where you just have to shoot dudes and forget 'em. We're talking about a game where you fulfil a specific role: say, a saboteur who sneaks behind enemy lines to destroy its equipment, clothed in the skin of one of its own soldiers. What if you could jump right into a game like that and understand your role? What if you could help your team achieve its goals
If you count yourself as a fan of the original, beloved N64 Turok games, there's something you should know: the new Turok throws all the mythology from the earlier games and comics out the window. Instead of an American Indian who lives in a timewarp and fights dinosaurs with ultra-futuristic weaponry, you'll play as special-forces commando Joseph Turok in an adventure set 200 years in the future.
While on the trail of his former mentor - who's gone rogue - Turok and pals track him to a savage
Thanks to Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh!, Collectable Card Games (CCGs) have gone from niche pastime to massive business - one that gamers have been made increasingly aware of. Not that CCGs are strangers to the computer screen - online games Sanctum and Chron X have been combining the two since the late 90s. Now Eye of Judgment, developed in conjunction with Wizards of the Coast - responsible for Magic: The Gathering - is threatening an evolution in
