Bionic Commando remake trailer hits the Web to the sound of gruffness


Oct 17
It was only announced yesterday, and already opinions are highly divided on Capcom's Bionic Commando remake. So far voices tend to fall on either side of a binary split, either gushing with the misty-eyed enthusiasm of a nost... read

I like the guys from Running With Scissors. Far from being the baby-eating, kitten-punching corrupters of children that certain quarters would paint them as, I've always found them to be thoroughly funny and intelligent peopl... read feature

Games Media Awards: the images (quantifiably NSFW)


Oct 13
Having vague and hazy recollections of this week's Games Media Awards, I found myself quite looking forward to going over the photos and video from the night so that I could piece together everything that went on. Alas my fri... read

Hitman movie censored already?


Oct 10
The inner workings of the minds of Hollywood's executives often make very little sense. That's as true a statement as saying that the sky is blue or that Snowboard Kids is better than Mario Kart 64. The modern Hollywood exec ... read

Mistwalker confirms Blue Dragon DS and a shiny new title


Oct 03
I couldn't be more thankful for Mistwalker's existence right now. As a long-time JRPG fan, these last few years with my once beloved Square-Enix have been like watching a much-loved family dog slowly die while a relationship ... read

Bungie: Internet Matlocks correct, Halo 3 not running in HD, but so what?


Sep 29
It's a universal law of human snarkiness that the bigger the game launch, the more attention will be paid to any hitches, large or small. It's also a universal law of videogames that the more you hype, the more trouble you te... read

Ghost Squad trailer shows off some slick shooting


Sep 29
While probably not a release likely to be setting Wii owners' pants on fire with anticipation in this year of incoming Mario and No More Heroes, - and with Metroid still to come if you live in Europe - Sega's port of arcade l... read

Dead Island site goes live


Sep 28
Techland's up and coming zombie dismantlement simulator caused quite a stir when it was unveiled at the Leipzig Games Convention, due to its smile-inducing two-hit combo of gorgeously idyllic tropical vistas and savagely brut... read

Jack Thompson sends gay porn to judge, doesn't even buy dinner first


Sep 26
My friends, it's almost time to start popping champagne corks, for the glorious day must surely be soon upon us when Jack Thompson's legal career is curb-stomped savagely into a fine red mist. For quite some time now things h... read

Valve uncertain about the future of episodic gaming


Sep 25
Valve might be dropping the whole concept of episodic gaming once Half-Life 2: Episode 3 finally sees the light of day. While that release may seem like a distant prospect with Episode 2 still awaiting its delayed release, Ga... read

Timesplitters 4 looking probable for the Wii


Sep 25
Some new tips drop into my in-box like a shiny big dollop of liquid gold. From the day the Wii was announced, FPS on the machine has been at the forefront of my mind, and I've had a vaguely realized image of a perfect example... read

Wii availability creates tourism boost in rural Japan, seashell art sales stable


Sep 25

TGS 2007: New No More Heroes video brings your dreams of a laser crotch to life!


Sep 23
 No More Heroes gets more and more screwed up the more we see of it, and I for one thoroughly approve. So far we've had otaku buying light sabers from Ebay, arm-mounted rocket launchers, explosive gore and mandatory Wiim... read

Jack was right all along! Chinese cops train with Counter-Strike

New Dementium trailer baffles and amuses

I can't wait to play Dementium: The Ward. I've had high hopes for the horror shooter for a good while now, and after Hamza's impressions from EIEIO were largely favourable despite a couple of niggles, my desire to be blowing ... read

Regular readers will by now be well aware of my excitement over Codemasters' upcoming collaboration with author, film maker, artist, and all-round creative legend Clive Barker. I've been a huge fan of Barker's work since my t... read feature


Okay chap and chapettes, the results from yesterday's feeding frenzy are in and I'm ready to announce the lucky spammers who've got themselves a beta key for Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. Given that things got a little messy w... read feature


Do you like Quake? Do you like wars? Have you longed for some time to combine your two passions in videogame form, maybe giving the whole thing a beta-style vibe as you do? If that rather contrived set of predilections sounds... read feature

Leipzig GC 2007: Quake Wars
