Here it is - the first Mafia 2 trailer (see it below).
Like the original Mafia title, Mafia 2 immerses players in the mob underworld of a fictitious late 1940s-early 1950s scenario. We're told that we will become engaged in the game's cinematic Hollywood movie experience with strong, believable characters in a living, breathing city.
The sequel's in development for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
If you were previously receiving the GamesRadar newsletter, you may have noticed that several months ago it ceased its weekly delivery and left your inbox feeling cold, disconnected, and generally without the latest in gaming news, features, reviews, previews, videos, cheats, babes, etc.
Perhaps it was a technical malfunction, perhaps we got lazy, or perhaps we were forced to discontinue it after its content caused complaints. Whichever of those three equally plausible cases is the truth, it

We told you about them two days ago, now here's the full quality Leipzig footage of the four MGS4 bosses going to town on a group of militia soldiers. And it's awesome.
It all starts off innocuously enough when they run into what is best described as a four-legged robot. That turns out to be Crying Wolf. She's quickly joined by aerial menace Raging Raven, Doc Ock wannabe Laughing Octopus and obligatory villain-with-preternatural powers Screaming Mantis. They appear to be damn

We recently revealed a nugget of Metal Gear Solid 4 info, detailing the boss characters in Snake's newest warzone adventure. Today, we have something even better - info uncovering one lovely lady used by MGS4 creator Hideo 'Koj' Kojima in motion-capturing the movements of the new characters.
See, each of Snake's four bizarre cyborg nemeses is a woman. And, so, Kojima did the only rational thing and employed a host of nubile lovelies to perform motion-capture duties for the new

As if Hideo Kojima's 15 minute demonstration of MGS4's everyday combat wasn't enough to make our spines quiver, GamesRadar has managed to get hold of some highly sought after info - four of the overwhelming badasses that Snake is going to run into. Without further ado:
Screaming Mantis - female, has the same body shape (lady lumps excepted) as Psycho Mantis and is depicted floating off the ground in a similar manner. She has additional arms holding knives sprouting from her

Midnight Club: Los Angeles is gorgeous - even the most cursory glance at these first screens is enough to tell you that. Rockstar Games founder Sam Houser previously revealed that they intended MC:LA to redefine the concept of an immersive racing game - and these series topping cityscapes are the most vivid and detailed yet, luring us like a fish on a hook at the sordid delights waiting to be

2K Games will publish Mafia 2, a sequel to the original Mafia title (that sold more than two million copies worldwide no less) that helped popularise the gangster genre. To see some early screens from the game, click on the Images tab at the top of the page.
Featuring a deep mobster-driven narrative and both behind-the-wheel and on-foot action, Mafia 2 "is the sequel fans have been clamoring for" says 2K. We bloody hope so.
The game is being developed by Illusion Softworks,
Digital Extremes, long-time partner of Epic and developer of Unreal Championship and Dark Sector, has added to the crossfire aimed at Unreal Engine 3.
In an interview with Australian site Gameplayer, Dark Sector director Steve Sinclair claims that the company opted out of using Epic's ever-popular engine so that it could hit its desired release date.
"A lot of promises were made about the Unreal Engine 3, particularly on PS3," he said. "But as we see now, the time frames haven't been met and
