Video Games and facial hair have long had a close bond, be it the soul patch on the Prince of Persia, Gordon Freeman’s goatee, or the five o'clock shadow on every single character made with the Unreal 3 Engine. But while most games have people (mostly men) with some bit of hair growing beneath the nose but above the mouth, there are too few with just a mustache adding character to their faces.
PSP owners still waiting out the portable's game drought may want to take a peek at Vogster's promising side-scrolling brawler Unbound Saga. The arcadey beat-'em up not only gives gamers a good reason to blow that thick layer of dust off their PSP's pretty screen, but it also recalls the quarter-munching appeal of Double Dragon. Switching on the fly between two ass-whuppin' protagonists, players are treated to a richly realized 3D comic book-inspired world
The announcement of PES 2010 – promising a host of new features – has caused a mini Mexican wave around the office. Still, there’s an awful lot of PR waffle to cut through in the new press release. So that’s why we’ve broken it down into easily digestible, bullshit-free bites for your reading pleasure.
Konami says: ‘In addition to key out-field elements, goalkeepers are more versatile
If you make a bad game, it can only haunt you for so long. All that ties you to failure is a name in the credits – that’s not so bad. But star in a game’s horrific live-action cut scenes and your image is tarnished forever. Your horrible accent, ridiculous costume, and unmitigated willingness to make an ass of yourself for money are all digitized and archived forever - ripe to be picked out of the interdepths years later

What's the result when you mix a Jerry Bruckheimer live-action extravaganza, a bit of CG magic, and adorable rodents? A bizarre question to be sure, but Disney will answer it this summer with G-Force, a family-friendly action flick starring a series of guinea pig secret agents.

In fact, unbelievably, Sonic the Hedgehog has appeared on our screens in some 50 guises. Don't believe us? Take a look in here!
