It looks like the chances of us seeing a sequel to the stupidly addictive Xbox Live Arcade shooter Geometry Wars are quite good, if Bizarre Creations' reaction to our queries this afternoon are anything to go by.
When we asked Boom Boom Rocket masterminds Sam Hall and Nick Bygrave if we'll see more of the psychedelic shooter in the future, they replied simply with shared looks, giggles and a hushed response: "We can't say anything about that." It's blatantly coming
Epic Games has detailed the new Gears of War 'Annex' game mode, which will be arriving in via an Xbox Live update.
It all sounds very familiar if you're an FPS fan; the game mode involves taking control of key locations and holding them as a team to rack up points, and whichever team reaches the target point count first wins. It's all a bit like King of the Hill then, isn't it?
Each map will contain a number of control points though only one will be in contest at any given time. Once a team
Cambridge (Massachusetts)-based developer Harmonix has teamed up with EA and MTV to develop Rock Band, a new music game that "takes the core premise of Guitar Hero and expands it tenfold." If you thought Guitar Hero's two-player mode was cool, Rock Band hopes to blow you away with a new four-player option that lets you jam with other players over the internet, reports USA Today.
Alex Rigopulos, co-founder of Harmonix, revealed that the new game "lets you create a complete collaborative band,"
It looks like we don't have long to wait until more GTA IV details emerge following this week's debut trailer bonanza, as the next issue of Game Informer promises ten pages of new info and screens on the massive PS3 and 360
Political leaders, politicians and policemen have already downloaded the GTA IV trailer, watched it numerous times and gone apeshit at the fact that the fictional city resembles New York. You can see the trailer here.
While the city does resemble New York, it's actually the old GTA haunt Liberty City, which, as we all know, is heavily based on NYC. You can read more about the similarities between the cities based on the trailer here.

Last week, as the internet thrummed with interest over the freshly revealed Grand Theft Auto IV trailer, we brought you an eye-opening comparison of how several digitised locations from Rockstar's latest epic actioner match up to their real-world counterparts.
But now, while others continue to pick through the trailer for mini fact-morsels, we're looking to the future. Here's our choice of seven of the most exciting New York landmarks that have to feature in Grand Theft
The first official trailer for Grand Theft Auto IV was seemingly the only thing anyone could talk about yesterday. It answered a few burning questions that fans had about the next chapter of the watershed car-crime series, but it opened the floodgates on thousands more. Is the setting New York or a redesigned version of Liberty City? Will human trafficking be part of gameplay? Will we be able to go into all those cool buildings, or are they just for show?
Sadly, there's only so much we can
Registration is now open for the Gears of War 2007 Global Xbox Live Tournament, which will see the world's finest curb stomping for a place in a grand final taking place in Prague in July.
The first stage of the tournament itself kicks off on April 9 and runs through to May 6, and for those four weeks players worldwide will compete in ranked matches of leaderboard play over Live.
The top 11 battlers with the highest individual scores from the global showdown will "receive the grand prize, a
Technology magazine Wired has posted an article that recounts the controversial story of GTA and its makers, charting the various moral criticisms, lawsuits and scandals that have surrounded Rockstar's iconic game since its inception in the '90s.
Titled "The Road to Ruin: How Grand Theft Auto Hit the Skids," author David Kushner's piece certainly makes for interesting reading - you might want to skip the bits about audit committees, hedge funds and stock options, though - and offers some
The character in the trailer might not be the character you play as.
What we think:
While this would buck the trend of trailers for Vice City and San Andreas, the Eastern European character certainly doesn't look like the natural choice to star in the game.
In fairness, we only see him for a matter of seconds but he lacks the on-screen charisma of CJ and Tommy Vercetti. Furthermore, as far as we can tell, he doesn't fit into any of the existing GTA story arcs - the closest match
