Earlier promises of a fully destructive environment in Transformers: The Game have been confirmed with new screenshots demonstrating a metal mash-up of grand proportions. In the latest pics, the increasingly impressive Bumblebee is opening a can of whup ass with a lampost and a passing pick-up truck, as well as grandad's favorite, missiles, destroying a few buildings in the process and sending the plebs fleeing in all
The funny thing about inventing a genre of videogames is that, until it becomes completely played out, every game that emulates your formula is going to be attached to your name. Games that feature a wide-open, freely explorable world, for example, will have a hard time avoiding the label of "Grand Theft Auto clone," especially if their worlds are littered with vehicles to steal and drive.
In the six years since Grand Theft Auto III, a slew of games have tried to become "the next GTA," but so
Remember those 'light gun' games the kids used to rave about back in the day? Well, according to several US retailers the latest version of Nacmo's screen-shooting Time Crisis series is heading to console.
Time Crisis 4 is due for PlayStation 3 in November this year, if EBGames and GameStop listings are to be believed.
The retailers also claim that a new version of Namco's nostalgic gun controller the Guncon is on the way for PS3 - which is a bit of luck really because we can't really imagine
Activision unveiled the upcoming Transformer movie tie-in earlier this week in London to what we believe was a very average reception. We're huge fans of the brand and think the movie is shaping up to deliver the goods. We have a few reservations about the game though.
We said, "Although the game's still in development, it lacked the detail and polish we've come to expect from 360 games. The environment looked bland and there was a distinct lack of people and traffic."
Fresh out of the sewer, mutated for your viewing enjoyment, comes a brand stinkin' new video that showcases your favorite subterranean superheroes in action. There's a wide variety of action to be seen here, from single turtle throwdowns to frantic character-swapping melees, and it happens all over the place, from the deep in the sewers to the top of giant parade floats. Mayhem galore.
From the looks of things, these Turtles have been studying tapes of the Prince and Kratos in action - two
At a preview event in Europe yesterday, Transformers: The Game was presented to an underwhelmed crowed of journos, as the giant-robot action failed to meet high expectations set by the movie. Giant robots, guns, rockets, explosions - it's perfect videogame fodder.
We were shown a city-based level that demonstrated destructible scenery by having robots smashing through buildings. We were also shown the combat system as two robots squared up to each other.
But the physics engine lacked impact
Juárez Mayor Héctor Murguía has condemned Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 which is set in El Paso and Juárez, reports the El Paso Times.
Ubisoft's tactical shooter launched last Thursday for Xbox 360, which features fictional battles between the US Ghosts and Mexican rebels. Keyword there being "fictional." But the Mayor of Juárez (one of the locations featured in the game) isn't
The first in-game screen of Transformers: The Game has morphed into view, giving us a tantalizing enigma to ponder while we wait for the game and movie to arrive. The single in-game screenshot shows Bumblebee towering above trees and a factory and... a person? We've blown up the image so you can decide for yourself, but we reckon it looks like a lady running away from the towering beast.
Of course, stomping people may not be a feature of this family-friendly game, but we'd like to think it
Alright so there's no screenshots to offer but Valve has given us two pieces of fresh concept art from Team Fortress 2, which is enough to keep us quiet until we get up close and personal with the game at GDC next week.
In case you're wondering, the two pieces of art show the different levels of the sentry gun, which for you TF rookies out there is constructed by the wrench-wielding engineer
Namco has released the first batch of Tekken 6 screenshots since it showcased an in-game teaser movie at last year's E3.
The screenshots, which are from the arcade version of the game, are a little too tiny for us to see the fighting sequel in explicit detail, but from the looks of it Namco has been doing some spring cleaning in the graphics department - with prettier character models and more detailed environments than the previous movie teaser.
