The first in a series of Lionhead video diaries has just been released on Xbox Live Marketplace and the company's official website.
The video has Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux and co repeating what they told us at GDC a few months ago; explaining how they're shoe-horning emotion in to the sequel, and gushing over that loveable dog.

Peter Molyneux is at the dictaphone again, chatting about his upcoming Fable sequel as well as a top secret project.
The Lionhead boss covers the usual topics; combat, NPCs and that stupidly-loveable dog, but also drops some interesting comments on the other of the "three big features."
"I've talked about proximity-based context-based combat, confined combat, I think I've talked about one-button combat and one-blow kills," he says. "I haven't in any way talked about... and this is something
This trailer for smash-happy racer FlatOut Ultimate Carnage is so pleasing to watch we didn't want it to end - always a good sign. It's not just the brilliant crashes or promisingly varied course styles, it's the ludicrously funny rag-doll driver catapulting and the Demolition Derby-esque mashfests that have us hungry for more hands-on time.

The almost-complete build we saw in London is smooth, fast, realistic and comprehensive. But we've seen the same game, only totally different - and we want it.
Microsoft had set up a special playable unit in the corner of the press room and when we turned and saw it in action, an involuntary "wow" came out of our mouths. Three hi-def screens.
White knuckle, high velocity driving with explosive car killing pile-ups - that's why our anticipation engine is in serious danger of blowing a gasket over the gorgeous looking Xbox 360 racer, FlatOut Ultimate Carnage. We've seen it, we've played it and, yes, we're very, very hot for it. And now you can check it out too thanks to an absolute deluge of freshly waxed assets.
Below you'll find the very first teaser trailer for your inspection, there's a stack of new screens just waiting to be
Buckle up racing fans - we've got a stack of FlatOut Ultimate Carnage goodies heading your way later today, but while you wait we suggest you take your peepers on a tour of the frozen-in-time automobile fracas below, snapped in-game by the Xbox 360 exclusive racer's developer, Bugbear Entertainment.
Be warned - it's a fairly hefty file, so depending on your connection speed you may have to exercise a little patience while the image uploads to this page. We assure you that it's worth the wait,
Whats your idea of the perfect handheld weapon? A gun? A bazooka? A glowing laser blade? Yeah, thats all pretty good; but the minds at publisher LucasArts and developer Day 1 Studios (they made the MechAssault games for Xbox) think they may have found something even better for Fracture, their new third-person shooter due mid-2008 for PS3 and 360 – how about a mountain?
Okay, not exactly a mountain, but not far from it. In Fracture, you play Mason Briggs, a futuristic soldier whose

Soccer games are bigger than ever before, raking in millions for the likes of EA and Konami (especially in the UK). But what does 'next-gen' really mean for soccer games? Well, less repetitive commentary for a start...
Speaking recently about the future of soccer games and their move to next-gen systems, Andrew Wilson, executive producer of soccer, EA explained, "We ran out of space on the disc with current gen. Last year's FIFA had 26 leagues, 15 thousand players, kits, players, stadiums,
