Although we haven't personally been counting, this year is apparently the 25th anniversary of the Tron movie, and Disney is "celebrating" by reviving the old-school arcade games for Xbox Live Arcade.
The original arcade versions Tron (1982) and Discs of Tron (1983) are on the way, both coming packed with updated versions that boast updated graphics and sounds. Both the old and updated versions will support online multiplayer over Xbox
What do Solid Snake, Lara Croft and Samus Aran all have in common? They dress for success. Their own costume, be it custom-built spacesuit or bottomless backpack, is directly related to their adventuresome profession. No matter the situation, these heroes are loaded with gadgets, training and expertise that'll see them through to the end.
But not all game characters are created equal. A great many appear to have no practical application other than "the boss says this guy stays in the game."
Ever hear of a movie called ‘Joe Jump?’ It was a Disney flick about a washed-up videogame character, but it never quite... happened. But, like our yet erstwhile protagonist, Disney hasn’t given up on him yet...
Warren Spector, the man behind the Deus Ex, System Shock, and Epic Mickey series (to name a few), has been picked to receive the Lifetime Achievement trophy at the 12th Annual Game Developers Choice Awards...

For a time of peace on earth, theres going to be a lot of stress and killing around this Christmas. Just think about this winters biggest games. Whether its COD4s visceral gunfire tearing apart wall and limb alike, the bloody back-stabbing business of the always-hounded Altair, or Kane and Lynch just being plain old sociopathic, the jovial festival of light and wonder really is looking like a quite brutal one this year.
We need a way to combat this, and preferably one which
Electronic Arts is getting into the new
year spirit with up to half-off a portion of its Xbox Live
inventory including Dragon Age: Origins, Dead Space 2's Severed DLC,
and a slew of sporting expansions...
In the blue corner we have The Greatest of All Time. In the red corn... screw it. We just can't bang the mega clichéd phrasing out. What we can do is tell you we'd back Chun Li's thighs of granite in any semi fair fight. That, and we can also inform you that you should vote for The Fighting Game of the Year at this month's Golden Joystick Awards. Full details inside.
The funny thing about inventing a genre of videogames is that, until it becomes completely played out, every game that emulates your formula is going to be attached to your name. Games that feature a wide-open, freely explorable world, for example, will have a hard time avoiding the label of "Grand Theft Auto clone," especially if their worlds are littered with vehicles to steal and drive.
In the six years since Grand Theft Auto III, a slew of games have tried to become "the next GTA," but so
The relationship between games and movies has always been a tense one. There's something almost violently alchemical about the way the two media usually react to each other. It's like getting hit by a yellow, piss-soaked snowball. Either element can be unpleasant enough on its own, but put them both together and something far more horrible happens.
