Now is a very good time to be a fan of real time strategy. With top tier titles hitting the market faster than our hard drives can keep up with them, we've entered a golden age for the RTS genre. But no matter how deep Supreme Commander, or how authentic Company of Heroes, one franchise has the potential to overshadow all newcomers in name alone... Command & Conquer.

We're being given a teasing glimpse of developer Codemasters' horror-fest Clive Barker's Jericho in a new trailer running for just over a minute. Get your pants scared off by taking a peep via our video player below.
In development for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, Jericho's a squad-based FPS that relates the story of Jericho Team, a seven-man strike force established to protect the government from paranormal threat.

PC shooter Call of Juarez is coming to Xbox 360 later this year, under the wing of publishing house Ubisoft.
Developed by studio Techland in Poland, Juarez is described as "a western shooter in which you play as a nice young man and an insane preacher, chasing yourself across America." Apparently, it's quite
Konami's classic side-scrolling epic action RPG title, Castlevania: Symphony of Night will become available for download on Xbox Live Arcade for the Xbox 360 on Wednesday, March 21. Considered by many to be the pinnacle of the series, Symphony of Night involves an absolutely gigantic version of Dracula's abode. It's possible to think you've explored the entire castle, when in fact you've only uncovered a small part of it.
The player takes control of Alucard, Dracula's incorrigible son, as he
Like strategy card games? Namco Bandai officially announced today that the American version of Culdcept SAGA is coming this Summer on the Xbox 360. If you haven't heard of this series, it began with a little-known but great entry on the PlayStation 2. The latest version will feature Xbox Live multiplayer action.

Rumor claiming to have details on planned new content for Realtime Worlds' Xbox 360 game Crackdown has surfaced on the 'net.
Reported on website msxbox-world.com, the rumor comes via its forum, where a poster says "An un-named source who I have no doubt in trusting has revealed to me that Crackdown is set for some new content."
The poster says the content "is possibly going to be free" and will include "things like vehicle impounding (taking marked cars back to the Agency); street racing vs.
High-intensity shooter The Club is actually closer to a racing game than your average blastfest, according to developer Bizarre Creations, creator of the top notch 360 racer Project Gotham Racing. So they should know.
"Think of it like a racing game," lead designer Matt Cavanagh told the Official UK PlayStation Magazine in a recent interview. That's because the game works by thrusting you into bite-sized levels - each lasting three or four minutes long on a good "run" - where you nail through
Much like a soap opera, it's getting pretty confusing following the twisted saga of Crysis' fate on consoles. We just want to know whether it's coming or not. Some of us pour all our money into consoles, not massive computer updates including new graphics cards or operating systems. What do we know so far?
