Much like the Winning Eleven series, there are two ways to play Virtua Fighter games. Theres the “casual” post-bar, fight-it-out-with-a-friend kind of way, and then theres the slavish, almost scientific approach - fueled by the sort of devotion thats made the series so hugely popular in Japanese arcades.
For those who prefer option one, Virtua Fighter 5 wont disappoint. On the surface, its definitely a next-gen game, with hyper-detailed looks not so different from the stunning

Flying in the drawn, unshaven face of Second World War videogame tradition, which states “war games shall be epic, gritty, a bit like that movie about Ryan, but above all must feature the Allies giving Jerry a good thrashing,” Brothers In Arms Hells Highway will center instead on one of the most dispiriting defeats suffered by the Allies.
Playing as both original BIA hero Matt Baker and Earned In Blood star Joe Hartsock, youll be dumped into a fateful campaign that saw the US 101st
Anyone who remembers the Dreamcast knows Virtua Tennis is money. If you never played it all those years ago, you're in for a really nice surprise. Unless you're a fan of the sport, tennis games tend to lack that special something that keeps you coming back for more. Virtua Tennis has it. The control is smooth and simple, the graphics are crisp and easy on the eyes, and - now that it's coming to the Xbox 360 - online play is firmly in place.
PS3 owners get motion-sensitive Sixaxis control, but
Alright, alright. You got us. We know Doom and it's sequels have been out... well, forever now.

In a year brimming with upcoming single-player role-playing game releases, Two Worlds hopes to make its mark with decisions. And not curly-or-regular-fries type decisions. These are world-changing, game-altering decisions.
Like The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Gothic 3, Two Worlds will be a massive, do-what-you-want kind of game. And its up to you whether to work for good or revel in being a jerk. According to developer Reality Pump Studios, any significant action in Two Worlds will have
Not content with the tradition of making all games based on a movie suck hard, the good folks at Buena Vista Games have their work cut out for them. Luckily, their latest offering, Meet the Robinsons - inspired by the Disney CG film of the same name - is shaping up to be one of the lucky few to break the mold. Buena Vista is determined to stray from the plot of the film, in which dorky, yet tragically orphaned Lewis searches for memories of his mother... and is subsequently kidnapped and sucked
Sadly, money grubbing suits have recently begun ripping off honest cheaters with slimy pay-per-cheat systems and shameful product tie-ins. But beneath the slick interfaces of Xbox Live Marketplace lie layers of moldy codes hidden in games by the hacker cowboys of days long past. These sly nods to the elite gaming cadre are bizarre, hilarious, or even downright grotesque. In celebration of this longstanding tradition we present to you the finest cheats, glitches, and mods excavated from the

BlackSite took us somewhat by surprise at Midway's Las Vegas gamers day last week; its intuitive squad controls and truly squelching atmosphere give off a promising vibe we didn't expect, and it could turn out to be a very notable FPS release when it hits Xbox 360, PS3 and PC later this year.
At the same event we got a chance to sit down with the game's producer Zack Wood, who answered all of the burning questions we had after our short play-through. Here's what he had to say...
