Snooker finally comes to the Wii in WSC Real 09

Now you may be asking yourself, "What the f*ck is Snooker?" That's a valid question, and the answer is that I have no idea. If I had to guess I'd say it's a knockoff candy bar, although it also kinda sounds like the word this Germ...

Sacred 2: RPG + German Fantasy Metal = Something?

[video]105137:427[/video] This trailer for Sacred 2 is the most amazingly epic thing I've seen all day, and also the most tragic. It's not every day that you get to see an in-game music video for a German "Fantasy Metal" band that...

New Kingdom Under Fire to be an MMO

Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom was barely out the door before developer Blueside talked of a sequel, and it's hardly surprising -- by all accounts, Circle of Doom was a complete failure, so who can blame Blueside for reminding us that t...
