Last week at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, we were invited to witness the first 60 minutes of sci-fi RPG Mass Effect in action. Better yet, our guides were the masters of the universe themselves - BioWare founders Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk. If the gorgeous visuals and innovative gameplay on display weren't enough to get us dangerously hyped, the enthusiasm of these two gentlemen sitting on either side of us certainly was.
We want you to be excited too, dear reader,
Last week, we spent a jaw-dropping hour with upcoming sci-fi RPG Mass Effect. For our real-time impressions, as well as mid-demo conversation with BioWare founders Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk, check out part one of our interview.

Cast your eyes over San Vanelona - SKATEs fictional, open-world city that captures the best elements of San Francisco, Vancouver, Barcelona, the Hoover Dam and New Yorks financial district. An ultimate playground.

Today we take a look at the different costumes Peter Parker masquerades in, as well as the foes hell be facing in Spider-Man 3. It seems as though “Black" is the new “Red,” cuz apparently that basic suit is old and busted. Say hello to the brand-new dark and mysterious Spidey; complete with extra angst. Hes gonna need all that anger when he faces his biggest adversaries yet; a rival photographer, his former best friend and the man that may have killed his uncle. Read on:
Dark Sector looks special. The sinister third-person action game packs a moody atmosphere and the intriguing, power-absorbent, triple-bladed glaive puts a unique twist on the fighting and puzzles.
Despite the game having been in development since 2004, Digital Extremes has remained secretive with its progress - until now.
We sat down for a chat with product manager, Josh Austin, who told us all about the structure of his innovative new quest, and how he looks to music, film and, bizarrely,
Are you sitting down? Good. Oh, and its best that youre not eating anything prior, during and directly after reading our coverage of Clive Barkers Jericho, a squad-based shooter that is as creepy and disgusting as it is intriguing. Mr. Barker has already made waves with his fantastical and horrific writings and surely if youve played his previous game, Undying, then you know that the man can offer up quite a virtual scare. That all said, check out our in-depth preview of Jericho and our
Sadomasochistic cenobites, cannibalism, hooks in flesh, skin-stealing…“Weve got sights to show you,” grinned Pinhead in seminal horror flick Hellraiser - and didnt he just? However, Clive Barker himself has shown us so much more - in his books, his films, his soft toy range and in his games. Well, in Clive Barkers Undying anyway - the others havent been very good. But now hes back with Clive Barkers Jericho, a project hes steering all the way from conception - rather than
Grand Theft Auto. A game series synonymous with death, drugs, carjacking, prostitution, sleaze, ultraviolence, sex and controversy. The tabloids would have you believe that simply playing the game will turn you into some kind of sick, perverted monster... who can barely swim.

Try to find someone in the Star Wars universe that you actually look like. If you don't look like anyone, be Darth Vader and wear a helmet. Let this guy below with the specs and the goatee act as a warning. He thinks: I look like Anakin. We think:
Today we're in an especially giving mood. Why all the love, you may ask? Well, publisher THQ just had one of them Gamer's Days where entirely too much info was divulged about the games you'll want to play in the next few months. Our crack-team of journalists were deployed to the frontlines to bring you, our dear readers, the best coverage possible from this event. How does the recently announced Conan action game look?
