Surprise of the week: Jericho banned in Germany

In a move which has stunned the entire population of those who have actually been living under a rock for the last ten years, - incidentally a proud people who are sick to death of being reduced to a semi-humorous cliche in the eyes of the ...

Coming to America: Square Enix looking for US partnerships

First Capcom, now Square Enix. This generation is seeing some big westard steps taken by Japanese publishers eager to lap up some of the creamy monetary goodness waiting on the other side of the globe. Its not a surprising situation, all th...

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 the faces off z...

Pew! Pew! Preview!: Clive Barker's Jericho

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 teens, and the p...

Quake Wars competition winners

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 with the low-num...

Leipzig GC 2007: Quake Wars

Time was short at Activision on the day I popped over for a look at the new Quake II-themed Enemy Territory game, so I unfortunately didn't get as long as I'd hoped for with what was one of my most looked-forward-to games of the GC. What I ...

Leipzig GC 2007: The mysterious mystery of THEY

A game called THEY was teasing me for the entirety of the GC. It was one of the first games I made an appointment to see having recieved a press release weeks earlier about it, the last one I got to see over the course of the week, and the ...

Leipzig GC 2007: Far Cry 2

Around a week into my Leipzig coverage, and looking at my writing schedule I've still got a bunch more FPS to detail. It's a sign of the times my friends, and one I'm not entirely happy about. Somehow, this whole genre bandwagon thing never...

Leipzig GC 2007: Hands-on with Crysis

You might have read Fronz's report of his play test of Crysis back in January. While he found the game to be trouser-troubling beautiful and solidly playable -- despite bugs -- he ultimately wasn't blown away by the overall experience. I ha...

Leipzig GC 2007: Hands-on with Rayman Raving Rabbids 2

I like Rabbids. They do a lot of important work. In this world of mopey, emo, RPG heroes, violent, grizzled, downtrodden anti-heroes, earnest corporate mascots, and cute and cuddly cartoon critters, the Rabbids want nothing more from their ...

Leipzig GC 2007: Warhound

Remember when I said in my Dead Island preview that Techland could have another sleeper on their hands if things work out? Warhound is that game. Most of the journalists I talked to at Leipzig who went to Techland's booth went there for Dea...

Leipzig GC 2007: Hands-on with Spore

Sometimes things just turn out of the best. Earlier this week I had a ninety-minute appointment over in Electronic Arts' press area, where they had a whole load of their upcoming games available for play-test or presentation. With the words...

Leipzig GC 2007: Test driving the Wii Balance Board

I stepped up to the Wii Fit Balance Board feeling rather ambivalent about the whole thing. On the one hand, while I'm a big fan of what Nintendo is doing in taking games beyond being playthings and into the new realm of mainstream experienc...

Leipzig GC 2007: A New Beginning

I've been ranting about the need for a resurgence in point and click adventures for a good while now. The genre's been forsaken as unfashionable for far too long, and in this Wii and DS-dominated climate, there's absolutely no excuse for no...
