Freedom of speech? Bah! Who wants that? Games are clearly rotting humanity’s collective eternal soul and must be banned accordingly. The following collection of violent, titillating titles have offended censors all over the world. Some have been beaten to death by the banning bat for their gory deaths, others for displaying acts of girl-on-girl action, while one was even banned for having a two-headed cow. Really, just what is this
Turbine Entertainment is not ruling out a console version of its MMO The Lord of the Rings Online, exec producer Jeffrey Steefel has revealed.
"I actually think Lord of the Rings is a platform we can build from. Our license is to build massively multiplayer online games based on the books on all platforms, all across the world, so we want to leverage that over time," Steefel explained in a recent interview.

Originally announced in a press release back in May 2006 for PC and next-gen consoles, the game tie-in to cult TV show Lost has been mysteriously enigmatic since with not a single screenshot or piece of game information being released.
In fact, we'd probably have forgotten about it almost entirely had Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot not mentioned it was still very much in development to a room full of journalists at a press conference last month. Strange then, that Lost is absent from Ubisoft's

The debut images from the recently announced Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga have been jettisoned from LucasArts HQ and while we are helplessly excited about the prospect of cutting through the entire Skywalker family drama as comedic brick characters all over again - complete with new characters, new levels and online modes - we were a bit surprised to see a definite touch of the clones about one of the images.
The dubious shot shows the bikini-clad Leia tethered to a
The first trailer from LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga has hit the internet. Featuring plenty of gameplay, it's viewable over at LucasArts' website.
Confirmation on The Complete Saga arrived last week. Developed by Traveller's Tales, the game will let you play through all six Star Wars movies and adds new characters - such as Watto, Zam Wessell and Boss Nass - new levels and new features.
LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is due to release on Wii, Xbox 360, PS3 and DS in the autumn.
Traveller's Tales' series of LEGO Star Wars game are great. We should all agree on that. And the series is set to explode like the Death Star across all major platforms. A release date has yet to be revealed though, but you've got to think that the run-up to Christmas is a good bet.
PS3 and 360 versions will feature online co-op and the Wii and DS versions are said to take full advantage of their unique control systems.
Jim Ward, president of LucasArts, said, "We're proud of the phenomenal
According to Yoichi Wada, the president of Square Enix, The Last Remnant is "A Square Enix RPG for the world." It's going to be "the cornerstone of the Square Enix global strategy - a completely new franchise designed to take full advantage of next generation platforms." This is a new RPG for both the 360 and the PS3. Though they didn't say what platform the demo was taking place, it appeared to be 360 - but it was up and running for the demo. And most exciting, though they won't say when it
Hironobu Sakaguchi, Final Fantasy creator and founder of Blue Dragon dev Mistwalker, has laid his feelings on the table regarding "Father of PlayStation" Ken Kutaragi - he says he doesn't like him.
In an interview featured in EGM magazine's latest issue, Sakaguchi was asked why he had no games in development for PS3. "The machine's architecture is tricky, and I don't like Ken Kutaragi," he replied.
Meanwhile Microsoft, he said, needs to sort out its marketing strategy in Japan, calling the
We've heard zip on Ubisoft's videogame based on TV show Lost since its announcement last May, but new details emerging are confirming platforms the title is heading to.
Reported on Joystiq, a new official Lost podcast has found the show's producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse stating that the game is heading to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
Cuse explained that Ubisoft Montreal, which is handling development, recently "did a demo on some of the stuff." Lindelof added that what was shown was "very
