Developer id, in case you don't know, is effectively the father of the modern FPS - having forged the blast-heavy genre through landmarks like Wolfenstein, Doom and Quake. Now id is trying something a little different, with brand new title Rage.
The first footage, shown last weekend at a Quake convention, suggests a mix of popular FPS action styles and other types of gameplay. There's the traditional shooting in store, of course. But watch for some Condemned-type upclose violence, the
The recently released Resident Evil 5 trailer is currently causing a storm of debate across the internet after one critic - a single, solitary person writing on a blog - fingered the game as being racist in its depiction of black people as "inhuman savages" and for the fact that a white man in military clothing is employed to destroy them. It's an interesting opinion, certainly, but one that we happen to think is wrong.
While a cursory glance at Resident Evil 5 may give the impression that
Did anyone not see this coming? African womens' blog Black Looks has accused Resident Evil 5 of racism, calling into question the game's setting and depiction of black people as "inhuman savages."
"The new Resident Evil video game depicts a white man in what appears to be Africa killing Black people," the website reads, referencing the (excellent) extended trailer you can peep below. And for you exceptionally smart people, view our movie with exceptionally high production values: an in-depth

Remember Red Faction? Well, according to a THQ bigwig, there's a new instalment of the 'hey look you can destroy walls and stuff' shooter, most likey to be released early next year on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. And, we can exclusively guess from the top of our heads, it'll be called Red Faction 3.
The original was famous - infamous? - for its ambitious, but ultimately flawed aim of bringing deformable environments to FPS gaming. You could, admittedly, blow impressively craggy

During E3, MTV Games and Harmonix revealed plans to release weekly downloadable content for its forthcoming rhythm, action, and music game Rock Band, and it now appears that will also include Nirvana's Nevermind.
According to reports, the classic rock album will be made available after the game launches at the end of the year - there's no specific release date yet.
EA, which will publish Rock Band, was unavailable for comment on the reports at the time of writing.

Before we watched the new Resident Evil 5 trailer we were wondering how the hell Capcom would ever be able to surpass the brilliance of Resident Evil 4. Now, after viewing the three-minute movie over and over (and getting chilly vertebrae every single time), we're confident that Resident Evil 5 isn't just going to raise the survival horror bar, it's going to blow it through the corrugated iron roof and into the stratosphere. Here are five reasons that the trailer has got us super pumped about
After Resident Evil 5 's new trailer was unveiled at the Microsoft press briefing earlier this month, we were surprised to hear one Capcom representative claim to be underwhelmed by it. The reason? They'd already seen the full three minute edit, complete with snippets of gameplay footage. The full trailer, they told us, would be released on Marketplace July 26 (today) with PS Network getting the trailer a day later - July 27. But we have it for you to watch or download right
Resident Evil 5's producer Jun Takeuchi has spilled the undead beans on some of the features of his new game - and it seems you really should be afraid of the dark. And the light too, for that matter. As confirmed character Chris Redfield moves from light areas to dark and vice versa, aiming (and indeed seeing) will be impossible, as his eyes must first adjust to the light. Knowing what kind of surprises Capcom likes to hide in darkened rooms, this sounds pretty scary to us.
We think we're all in agreement when it comes to picking the new trailer of Resident Evil 5 as one of our E3 highlights, especially as we weren't expecting to see anything of it for a while.
Producer Jun Takeuchi has revealed that protagonist Chris is a member of the "BSAA" (you could see the letters on his patch in the trailer). Obviously the game takes place in and around a desert but initial events appear to happen in the village seen in the trailer.
Chris is sent in to check it out and
