Conan the Barbarian's gruesome, self-titled comeback is lumbering into stores this October, and it's easily one of the most visceral games we've ever played. Bloodier and more savage than God of War (and yet oddly similar, from a gameplay standpoint), Conan keeps the blood spurting at a steady clip throughout his pirate-crushing, monster-skewering romp through the ancient world of Hyboria. Severing limbs, chopping enemies in half and ripping out intestines with his bare hands,

A demo of THQ's Conan has hacked and slashed its way onto Xbox Live, and is set to hit PlayStation Network on October 11.
"In the Conan playable demo," says THQ, "the famed barbarian finds himself stranded in the Barachan Isles, a haven for pirates and thieves. A terrible plague known as the Black Death has spread across the land, and Conan must escape before it consumes him as well.
"Fortunately, Conan crosses paths with the beautiful and fearless warrior queen, A'Kanna, whose
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
On top of the many demos Sega delivered in its press day this morning (check the news sections for more), the company also announced three new titles that'll bolster its lineup over the next year. The first and most exciting of the three is Condemned 2: Bloodshot, a sequel to one of the 360's better launch games due early next year. Underneath the original's unsettling and depressing atmosphere was a truly enticing gameplay experience just waiting for you to explore - if you like crawling

Has it really been two years since we dove into dark, grimy sewers and beat junkies to death? If you're going through Condemned withdrawals, know that part two is on track for a 2008 release, and we've got the latest news on the grim and gritty Metro City.
GamesRadar: The original Condemned was creepy as hell, but up until the end, most of your enemies were just normal humans who'd been driven insane. Can players expect more brushes with the supernatural this time?

If you've been craving some hardcore gore to go with your post-holiday slump, may we direct your attention to the newest Condemned 2: Bloodshot trailer below?
Monolith has gone out of its way to up the ante on the gruesome spectacle of Criminal Origins with what appears to be infant flinging and more in-your-ugly-face fist fighting. Even in his darkest moments from the previous game, we've never seen Ethan Thomas looking quite so effed-up. After watching that trailer, we're
Check out these new multiplayer vids for Condemned 2:
Both offer pretty brief glimpses of the mode and only show melee combat, but you've just got to love that meat cleaver weapon.
Supporting up to eight players, multiplayer in Condemned 2 includes the standard Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, but on top of that you've got team-based Crime Scene and Bum Rush.
In the former, one team's attempting to use forensic tools to investigate a crime scene while it's the task of the opposing team
Sega has released the first batch of images for the highly-anticipated Condemned 2: Bloodshot for PS3 and 360.
Nothing new has been released about the title since Sega announced the game at their Gamer's Day event last month. We're told it'll feature new fighting mechanics and some form of online multiplayer functionality, though.
As in the original (which was one of the best 360 launch titles), you'll have to use detective skills to hunt down and catch sadistic serial
Sega has released the very first screenshots of Condemned 2: Bloodshot. That's right, we're now one step closer to actually playing the game than we were at the beginning of the month when they released some hobo concept art.
One step down, and the Spring 2008 expected release date will be here before we know it. Aside from the new screens, we have very little information about the game. We do know that it's adding a new combat system and online multiplayer functionality. We like those things,
