Earlier we brought you the first gameplay details from Lost the videogame. Today, we've got the first ever footage for your hungry eyes, including real in-game action. Just point your eyes down.
Do you play as Jack? From the looks of things, we'd have to guess that you do - the chap doing the running and exploring thing here sports the same Gap/Old Navy style and cropped black hair. But enough of our speculation - what do you think? Head to our forums now and blow off some word-steam.
Lost the videogame will cast you as "a survivor" of Oceanic Flight 815, awash on the mysterious island, with a simple goal: "Confront your dark past, seek your redemption, and ultimately find a way home."
We've seen the first gameplay footage and you can get it yourself right here tonight at midnight (PDT). To us, Lost looks like a third-person explore-'em-up with plenty of running. We were immediately reminded of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune by the lush jungle surroundings.

So here we are, drinking weak lager and being fed chocolate cookies by a very persistent waitress at Sony Europe's low-key cocktail reception in Los Angeles. David Reeves, Sony's President has just told the assembled press and hangers-on that, unlike the US, he won't be pulling a fast one and pretending to cut the price of the Euro PS3. Kaz Hirai (who was on the table behind us) has exited out the side door, sharpish.
No-one knows where to go next. We're in Venice Beach,
Yesterday, it was Burnout Paradise's ultra-thrilling race prospects. Today, our favorite game of all E3 is undoubtedly LittleBigPlanet, the controversy-courting (will it let you draw a cock and balls?) create-a-world platformer that has us in unstoppable fits of grins - highlighted by this fantastic new trailer.
In it, we finally get to see how fluid and seemingly easy the creation tools really are. And LittleBigPlanet's wonderful brightness has us suddenly feeling refreshed after a day of
Sony's annual E3 press conference opened with what could have been the biggest reveal of the entire show if it hadn't been leaked last week: the new $499 price of the PS3, as well as the introduction of a new $599 model that comes with an 80GB hard drive and a copy of online-enabled dirt racer Motorstorm. This left biggy-wig Jack Tretton (who began the event speaking through his character in the PS3 virtual world Home) to launch right into the publisher's game-centric, four-part
Publisher Gamecock has announced Legendary: The Box, a new FPS franchise developed by Spark Unlimited and due for release in 2008 on PC and "next-gen platforms." So, PS3 and Xbox 360, in other words.
The driving force behind Legendary is Pandora's Box, stolen by a thief and foolishly torn open, unleashing all kinds of mythological biohazard upon the world. The resulting chaos - which, from the latest screenshots, comes across as half Resistance, half The Darkness - sees gryphons and werewolves
Lair has to be seen in motion to be believed. Finally, after months of disappointing screenshots, Sony has finally released some footage that does the PS3 stunner justice.
A gargantuan ten videos in all have been unleashed, some more amazing than others, on Sony's official site. You should watch them all, unless you're running on an archaic 56k connection. In which case you definitely need new internets.
Check out our recent preview right here.
Freedom of speech? Bah! Who wants that? Games are clearly rotting humanity’s collective eternal soul and must be banned accordingly. The following collection of violent, titillating titles have offended censors all over the world. Some have been beaten to death by the banning bat for their gory deaths, others for displaying acts of girl-on-girl action, while one was even banned for having a two-headed cow. Really, just what is this
Turbine Entertainment is not ruling out a console version of its MMO The Lord of the Rings Online, exec producer Jeffrey Steefel has revealed.
"I actually think Lord of the Rings is a platform we can build from. Our license is to build massively multiplayer online games based on the books on all platforms, all across the world, so we want to leverage that over time," Steefel explained in a recent interview.
"You know, there are all these different ways of interacting with the world, how can I
Originally announced in a press release back in May 2006 for PC and next-gen consoles, the game tie-in to cult TV show Lost has been mysteriously enigmatic since with not a single screenshot or piece of game information being released.
In fact, we'd probably have forgotten about it almost entirely had Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot not mentioned it was still very much in development to a room full of journalists at a press conference last month. Strange then, that Lost is absent from Ubisoft's
