You might have thought it wasn't possible; you might have hoped it wasn't possible but Little Britain is coming to PS2 and PC in January, with a PSP version due later in the year.
Based on the BBC sketch show, the game will follow an episode of the programme with each character having to complete their own minigame and deliver their catchphrase before moving on to the next scene and joke. And much like anyone watching the last series, their objective is to reach the
Can't get enough of LocoRoco's singing, bouncing blobs? Publisher Sony has just unleashed a Halloween-themed level for its bizarre little PSP adventure, which you can download and play whether you actually bought the game or not.
Featuring a nightmarish color scheme and plenty of Jack-'o-lanterns, the demo has your cute, yellow LocoRoco chasing a pumpkin in a witch hat into what appears to be a crumbling haunted house. More interestingly, it features new gameplay elements, including
Even if you've played through LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, chances are good that you've missed something. We're not talking minikits or unlockable rooms - we're more about the in-jokes, unexpected events and laugh-out-loud moments packed into the game. We've played through the whole game and found our favorite giggle points and surprises - hit that Movies tab above then sit back and smile. May the farce be with
We've done our best to try to convince you of the ultimate supremacy of LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, but, as it turns out, the world either has no need of our advice or takes it very seriously. Selling 1.1 million copies (or "units" as industry pundits call them) in its very first week of being available to the masses, LEGO Star Wars II has cemented the value of family friendly titles in this blood-soaked, violence-mongering industry.
Of course, it helps that the game is
Playing through LEGO Star Wars II inspired us to take on the foolhardy task of recreating the entire original trilogy out of the game's many cutscenes. Just to make it more interesting, we gave ourselves a time limit of two minutes. So here you have it: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, in LEGO form, delivered in less than 120 seconds. Click the Movies tab and enjoy!
Sony has told us it has no plans to bring the LocoRoco soundtrack to our shores anytime soon - sad news for anyone who can't get enough of the cheery little blobs' peppy tunes and nonsensical lyrics.
There is a silver lining, however - we've scored four of the game's songs in their entirety and put them online for your listening pleasure. Hit the Movies tab above, and you'll be able to listen to the opening theme (as sung by both the childlike yellow LocoRocos and the folk-rocky green ones),
How does Darth Vader reveal that he's Luke Skywalker's father when he can't talk? That was the question posed by publisher LucasArts when they sent over new screens of Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy. Will the mute, plastic Dark Lord of the Sith use charts? Puppets? Obscene pantomime? They wouldn't tell us the answer, but they promise it'll be
When Lumines II arrives on the PSP in November, it won't just improve on the experience of the rhythmic falling-block puzzler Lumines. It'll bring something to the table that no other handheld game has: actual music videos playing in the background during gameplay.
As of press time, the list of confirmed (and potentially distracting) videos includes:
"Black Tambourine" (Beck)
"Pump It" (Black Eyed Peas)
"Star Guitar" (Chemical Brothers)
"Gangster Trippin" (Fatboy Slim)
"Bottle Rocket" (The
PSP puzzler Lumines II could be getting a PlayStation 3 edition, according to the game's creator, Tetsuya Mizuguchi.
Speaking at this week's Develop Conference in Brighton, England, Mizuguchi said that the development team "will be making announcements about the artists and music that we will be working with... I am also very interested in the network situation with PS3".
While this can't be called an official confirmation, it does seem as though Mizuguchi has some definite plans for Lumines
Did you like flying around in a Legofied Jedi starfighter in Lego Star Wars? Stuff like that will be just the tip of the iceberg in the sequel, according to publisher LucasArts.
In a press release yesterday, the company announced that Lego Star Wars II will not only add a slew of new vehicles - including X-Wings, plastic dewback lizards (complete with chomping action) and a bricky version of the Millennium Falcon - but it'll integrate them into the platform-hopping gameplay in ways that the
