One of Team Fortress 2's nine playable classes, Engineer, takes centre stage in new screenshots from the online blaster, along with his trusty deployable sentry gun.
The shots actually act as a tease for a forthcoming “Meet the Engineer” trailer from Valve that features the wrench-wielding defence

Ever been playing a game and wondered just what it would be like if you possessed the same abilities as the character youre controlling? Of course you have. And the ability to bend time, as you can in 360, PS3 and PC future-shooter, TimeShift, certainly got our imaginations working overtime.
Developer Sierra has obviously been thinking along the same lines and has created a live action short to demonstrate just how mastering time could be put to good use in the real world.

We've been busy putting The PlayStation Eye through its paces again. First we played with tropical fish, and now we've been delicately pushing a ball over tiles in Trails of Topoq.
But this is not as simple as it sounds. Each tile is made us of a series of tiny squares that can be individually raised and lowered to create slopes and ramps, or any other shape you care to make with your body.
Starting off with simple tasks involving collecting boxes and getting to the exit, it

The first trailer for mysterious Sci-fi shooter They, was recently unveiled at the Leipzig Games Convention, giving us our first glimpse of who “They” really are. And they definitely dont come in peace.
However as you can see, these aliens appear to be under the control of another more sinister power thats manipulating the creatures to do its dirty work.
No more info was offered other than the promise of “haunting single player and versatile multiplayer

The old Turok - that N64 classic - brought us ludicrously entertaining weaponry like the Cerebral Bore. The next-gen, redesigned vision of Turok's dino-slaughtering action is going back to basics, with this new gameplay trailer illustrating some knife-ilicious stealth killage.
We're guessing there's still some projectile surprises to be had in Turok's outing on 360 and PS3, due sometime next year, but this silent executions certainly promise to satisfy. And the series hasn't

It's called the King of Iron Fist Tournament, but a new character revealed for the upcoming Tekken 6 looks more like he'd do better in a pie-eating tournament.
Bob is the rather uninspiring name of the overweight fighter, who has already been compared to Mario because of his blue trousers and red short-sleeve shirt.
The first image appeared in the latest issue of Japanese Arcadia magazine, which describes Bob as a "martial arts genius."
According to a translation: "With his

We've got another snippet of footage from Valve's much anticipated Team Fortress 2 that introduces us to our second troop class - The Soldier. Take a gander, and what's immediately apparent that Team Fortress not only has the playful aesthetic of CGI animation, it also shares a similar off-kilter brand of humour. Were not going to ruin it for you, suffice to say it is actually rather smart and wouldn't be too far out of place on an episode of Futurama.
It's also a nice little

One of the best in-gags in gaming history is the "Lara Nude Cheat." For all the old Tomb Raider games, Core would leak a cheat that claimed to turn Lara naked. In reality, once you'd managed to pull off the complex moves, your only reward was to watch your heroine violently explode with a scream, her arms, legs and head flying off in different directions.
Gone are such innocent times, thanks to the mod scene. Now you can have Lara look any way you wish in TR: Anniversary...

This week Valve plans to release a new trailer focusing on Team Fotress 2's rocket launcher-wielding class the Soldier. Presumably we'll get similar trailers for all of the game's classes before TF2 releases.
Check out the three screenshots we've uploaded by clicking the Images tab. They provide a sneak glimpse of the forthcoming Soldier movie, although as you'll see two of the screenshots are pretty blurred - a bit of a shame

If you've been keenly eyeing the progress of the latest Tony Hawk title, Proving Ground, you'll know that it features a rather elaborate video editor mode. Self-directed footage can be chopped, spruced, remixed and then uploaded for others to see, through an intuitive suite of options.
The tuneful twist? These homebrew clips are graded, using code nicked from Guitar Hero, another Activision property that's being developed by Neversoft. You can choose a song from Proving Ground's
