In our first look at Other Ocean Interactive's PlayStation Network- and Xbox Live Arcade-bound The War of the Worlds, Max teased that we'd be in for a treat when it came to the game's narrator.

He wasn't lying!

It's none other than Sir Patrick Stewart, which you knew as of about ten seconds ago when you read the headline. "As a young boy, I remember watching the The War of the Worlds so many times I was quoting the lines," says Stewart.

"The alien invasion both terrified and fascinated me and the movie has stuck with me since then. Now, being part of this project will provide a new way for gamers around the world to experience a fresh new take on a classic." As a bonus, Other Ocean has thrown in screenshots with this announcement. Take a look.

Review: The War of the Worlds

In 1898, H.G. Wells published a tale of invaders from another world, descending upon Earth's cities with a terrible force. The War of the Worlds has been adapted into every form of media since that time, including a couple of videogames. The latest attempt to tell the story has arrived on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, bringing tripods and heat rays with it.more

The War of the Worlds gets new screens and a trailer

I am really quite excited for The War of the Worlds, having played it at PAX. The moody, death-riddled platforming as seen in classics like Heart of Darkness and the more recent Limbo really resonates with me, and I think this could be a real winner.  We've got a selection of screens and a new trailer for you to take a peek at, so go do that. Hopefully some of you care as much as I do. more

The War of the Worlds is pure class

Few stories have remained as lasting and as haunting as H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds. Its tale of a Victorian-era London, beset by pitiless, immeasurably superior Martian harvesters, is still as chilling today as it was ...more

Review: Batman: Arkham Origins: Cold, Cold Heart

So far, the Batman Arkham Origins Season Pass has been a steaming pile of poop. Buyers have received some extremely underwhelming skin packs, and a piss-poor series of challenge maps for their cash, with the promise...more
