Think you know what to expect from Gears of War 3 just because you played through Gears 1 and Gears 2? We understand this will sound extremely clichéd, but… think again. Epic’s developers have had nearly three years to prepare this latest chapter in the franchise, and since it could also be the last chapter for most if not all of these characters, they’ve made sure it’s much more than a by-the-numbers sequel...
We show you over 45 minutes of the campaign expansion. How does a Gears of War prequel play? Who are the new heroes, and what old characters are back from the dead? What happens when you combine the Hammer of Dawn with Modern Warfare's AC-130 gunship? Why will playing as General RAAM make you feel like a god? Watch and find out...
For children of the '80s, there are many pop culture touchtones - just watch VH1 on any given Sunday and you will see dozens of examples. One of the biggest was Ghostbusters, and after two decades since Ghostbusters II and the series' descent into nostalgic obscurity, it's making a return in a big way to consoles and PC.

In that time there have been a number of videogames that attempted to bring the loveable foursome home, but none have really captured the core spirit of the films. Until now.
With ex-Sony man Phil Harrison on board and fingers in practically every gaming pie (thanks to distribution deals with publishers the world over), and a brand that everyone recognises, Atari has the foundations in place to become great once again. But, most shockingly, it's actually got some great games to back it up. Here are five games Atari were showing off that we reckon you're going to want to play.
At first glance, Ghostbusters and Left 4 Dead are two very different games. One's an FPS, the other played in third-person. Slimer's residue does not 'attract the horde'. But there's no denying Ghostbusters shares some very welcome features with the 360 and PC shooter - to the extent that the same core gameplay that's been keeping the Radar team glued to its HD TVs for weeks could now be entertaining your entire family. Here are five good reasons why:
