Although very few solid facts are known about the game, Star Wars: The Forced Unleashed promises so much, and new info has started to trickle from the Jedi camp at LucasArts.
Some of the locations featured in the game have been revealed. At one point you visit a TIE Fighter Construction Facility "sent [there] by Lord Vader to eliminate Master Kota, a fugitive Jedi General who has taken over the station with a band of his loyal

An EA producer has said that Rockstar "spazzed out like little babies" in reaction to the GTA parody in The Simpsons Game.
The comedy spoof level, titled Grand Theft Scratchy, didn't go down too well with GTA publisher Rockstar, who forced EA to rename the level; now called the not-so-clever 'Mob Rules' stage.
Speaking on GameTrailer's Game Head program, Simpsons executive producer Matt Selman explained where the controversy began:
"The game begins with Bart wanting to play a

One brandishes a katana that has killed more Japanese people than Godzilla and eyebrows that make Sandy Cohen look like a chemo patient. The other is super cute, and has the smallest breasts in Soulcalibur IV - which means she should still have crippling back problems and extremely limited mobility. Nevertheless, Mitsurugi and Cassandra's life bars are the same damn size, and they're gonna see who can sword-juggle the other one in the air for longer. Check out what happens when

"Blood and Gore", "Drug Reference", "Intense Violence", "Sexual Themes", "Strong Language". When a video blares these 'rating watchwords' before kicking off, you know you're about to watch something worth your while. And such is the case with this new Soldier of Fortune: Payback trailer.
It plays out like a recruitment advert, showing a burly fellow hurdling artillery bombardments and gunning down 'locals' in a vague Middle-Eastern location. It bellows that mercenaries are wanted

Spore will release in roughly six months time, according to its creator Will "The Sims" Wright.
"We have the game fully playable at this point and it's in final testing," Wright said yesterday in an interview with Radio 5 Live.
Spore is an admittedly ambitious game, essentially a life sim. Players start off as a single-cell organism and then create their species at every stage of its evolution - from its first steps on land through to tribes then a culture and then finally it's

Apparently Rockstar were among a number of game companies that werent happy with the way The Simpsons Game, out for 360, Wii, PS2, DS 2 November, was parodying their creations and wanted somethings removed from the final code.
In an excusive interview with CVG the lead designer, Greg Rizzer, stated “we've had to pull stuff from the game”. But it seems, apart from renaming the trailer on the official site from Grand Theft Scratchy to the less catchy Mob Rules, not

It's a double treat on Xbox Live Arcade this week with the arrival of Q Entertainment's Every Extend Extra Extreme and the long, long awaited XBLA version of Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe.
Mizuguchi's effort is more than likely heading to PlayStation 3 at some point, but according to Bitmap Brothers' John Phillips, a PSN port of Speedball II game is likely on the way as well.
"That could be on the cards," said Phillips, after being quizzed on the likelihood of Speedball II making

Irresponsible speculation and much hypothesizing have been running rampant in our office since the Street Fighter IV trailer was unleashed across the Internet last night. The most striking thing about this video is its art style, which might foreshadow a huge change in how the actual game looks.
Since the trailer doesn't show any gameplay, it's too soon to come to any conclusions, but this wouldn't be the first time that the series has received a visual makeover. Street Fighter

Science (by which we mean the few 'facts' we've picked up on Wikipedia) suggests that gaming improves hand-eye-coordination and problem solving. Even so, defeating alien invasions or rearranging pipes to hack vending machines isn't going to bag you a career. Or is it?
In actual fact, it seems online gaming might land you a job as a spook. The government's secret services have teamed up with in-game ad company Massive, and during October they aim to target recruitment adverts at
