Publisher Ubisoft's already committed gangster-shooter Red Steel and platformer Rayman Raving Rabbids for Nintendo's next console, but today the games giant confirmed it'll have seven titles out at launch... which is still firmly locked as an Octnovemberish time period. The newly announced games are as
So this puts us up to about 50 or 60 thousand videos pertaining to Ubisoft's upcoming Rayman Raving Rabbids game, but we still get a little chuckle every time the annoying little critters wail with their blood-red eyes. Our two new videos provide evidence that these albino monstrosities can neither milk cows nor close doors behind them - we're not clear on what these limitations have to do with, oh, the game, but they're fun enough distractions.

Been to an arcade in the past 20 years? You've likely seen some form of city-razing Rampage tucked away, begging for people to plunk quarters into its empty stomach. The point is, you've probably played it before - even a lot. Well, you're getting yet another chance this winter with a new mutation of Total Destruction - on the

We'll be the first to stand up and shout down all the rabid Sonic fanboys who say the franchise hasn't slid into desperate times. The past few games (and associated spin-offs) have been pretty damn sad, but Sega's first Wii attempt might be worth a look - so please, have a peek at our new shots of the Arabian-themed
For those concerned about Wii's ability to offer brutal, soulless acts of violence, it's exciting news to hear that Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is heading to the tiny console sometime during the first quarter of 2007. Publisher Midway made the announcement today (okay, technically tomorrow, but we got it early and exclusively for being so "kombative") along with several other tidbits about the PS2 Premium Pack, which you can read about right here.

Yesterday, our sister site Next Generation broke an exclusive news story that the Entertainment Software Association was effectively canceling the mega-format of the Electronic Entertainment Expo, otherwise known as E3.
The cancellation was due to a number of major publishers pulling out of the deafening annual Los Angeles spectacle. Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony Computer Entertainment America and Electronic Arts all called it quits after the May 2006 event. The simultaneous mass exodus of the
If you've been following the limbless hero Rayman's new game at all, you've no doubt seen a few too many movies showcasing the pint-sized, maniacal rabbids. They've ambushed Rayman's colorful world and are forcing him to act like an idiot - it's your job to entertain and distract them with excellent performances so you can break free. And if you're planning to make a next-gen Nintendo purchase, Ubisoft claims the game will be of the best-designed Wii titles too... so hang on to that
