If we get beaten by S
V.E.R. one more time... Seriously! MAG is a fantastic shooter, that's only really been hindered in early months by its slight balancing issues. Y'see, those who have played MAG will know - S.V.E.R. rarely lose on their home turf, whereas Raven often lose at home. The problem isn't always strictly dependent on the quality of each team, it's a balancing issue, and thank goodness..

Very little change this week in the UK's all-formats chart, with Mass Effect 2 still holding the top-spot
Visceral Games' reimagining of Dante's Inferno entered fairly strongly at number four this week, knocking Sony's MAG to a respectable seventh. By the way, why did Ubisoft moan about Avatar's sales? It's been in the top ten for months now. Granted we've seen a few special offers on the game at..

Take this trailer for the upcoming PS3 exclusive 3D Dot Game Heroes. It's supposed to be about increasing the size of your weapon, but we can't seem to say that without sounding filthy. Atlus are playing a joke on us, right?
Square Enix has announced that they are working on five unannounced titles at the moment
They also announced that at least two of them are set to launch in 2010. No mention of whether that's just Japan or worldwide. We reckon the titles are Final Fantasy XV, Final Fantasy XVI, Final Fantasy XVII, Final Fantasy XVIII... You get the idea. What else could they be, eh? Well probably a lot actually but,..
The guessing game goes on
Despite us being fairly certain that the Playstation Motion Controller is to be entitled the Playstation Arc; SCEA's Patrick Seybold has thrown a spanner in the works - suggesting that name is just a "rumoured codename".

MotoGP 09/10 is coming pretty soon
But MotoGP 10/11, well that's a little way off. And it's giving Capcom the opportunity to consider future tech for those titles; namely head-tracking and stereoscopic 3d.One of the things that Im really excited about is that the PS3 going to support 3D technology. So when you combine that with the PS Eye and theoretically doing the head tracking through that..
Aside from the fitting choice of Mason Vs
Princess Superstar as its soundtrack, this Yakuza 3 gameplay trailer rocks because it's all like, "Yo, this could easily be a Shenmue game." Apart from all the blood and brutality.

This epic 3-minute Bioshock 2 launch trailer is properly the best trailer we've seen thus far this year
It's totally all CGI but it captures the game perfectly. We'd forgotten how subtley creepy the universe of Bioshock is too. If you weren't hyped for the game, you probably will be now.
We've no idea who came up with the idea of mixing Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine" with a video game adaptation of Dante's Inferno, but bloody hell does it work
This is EA's much touted trailer for Dante's Inferno that will air during the Super Bowl. It's a stroke of marketing genius. Seriously, if anyone reading this came up with the advert, give yourself a pat on the back.
SCEA's released a making-of video for the upcoming God Of War III
The document catalogues the development of one of the game's enemies - the Chimera.

Fumito Ueda and his pals at Team Ico are to blow the doors of The Last Guardian at some point this year — the type of video game no other company can match. Microsoft may have Master Chief and the frat boys of Gears Of War, but Sony have a boy and his giant cat-bird thing. Could the differences be any more apparent? Ueda mentioned there would be a big blow-out on the game at some point,..

Honestly, one of our favourite things about the original God Of War games has been the additional "making of" content
That sounds sorta dumb, we know, but we find that stuff fascinating. Obviously if the actual games weren't so good, we wouldn't care about it; but God Of War game are always good, so we're stoked to get that extra content. Information from the BBFC proposes 3 hours of bonus content..

Heavy Rain: Probably the best...
God Of War III's passed rating in the UK with no cuts made
It scored an 18 from the BBFC. No surprise there for a game that has you ripping someone's head off. The God Of War Collection has also been rated at an 18. Better make sure you've got that fake ID* ready for March then, eh? *- PushSquare do not condone the act of using fake IDs. Sometimes.
As much as we think Dante's Inferno looks to be a decent hack and slash title, we've always wondered why they're putting a God Of War inspired title up against well, the real thing
With Dante's Inferno due this week in Europe (next week in the US) and the real deal God Of War III coming just a month after that - it seems like commercial suicide right? EA think not, as they're planning to drop an..
Enough Sony, SCEE, Polyphony or whoever is involved with making Gran Turismo 5 take so bleeding long to come out
We were expecting it early 2009. It didn't come. We were expecting it late 2009. It didn't come. We were really expecting it early 2010. It ain't coming. Now you're talking about Fall? Really? Yes, really. SCEE Portugal's honcho James Armstrong has said the game is aiming for a..
Thought that announced March release date for Quantum Theory was suspect? Yup, us too
We guess it's little surprise then, that the game's been pushed back until later in the year. A rep for Tecmo Koei told VG247 that the game has been delayed for "quality" reasons and that the team were committed to delivering the "very best title" they can. May aswell cancel those preorders..

The bitter Raven player in us wants to make a snarky comment about this group of S
V.E.R. players who were winning so comfortably</a> on Domination they decided to just, y'know, hang out in the middle of the map. Apparently, still no one was able to take their Cooling Towers. Yeah, us Ravens know why, eh? 'Cos the S.V.E.R. map is horrifically...
Mafia II's senior producer, Denby Grace, has told IncGamers that 2K's upcoming noir open-world title is pretty much better than all the competition

Just to get it out there, Heavy Rain requires installation before you play it
It'll need 4.2GB of space to run in-fact, presumably to keep load-times reasonable. Don't worry too much about the horrific install screen progress bar though; Quantic Dream's come up with a clever way to keep you occupied - teaching you how to make your own Origami bird.
Heavy Rain literally looks bonkers
The latest game from David Cage and his team at Quantic Dream dares to think outside the box. In that, it's a huge gamble for publishers Sony, but one they are giving their full support.

We were kind of worried about MAG's sales
Oh, there are plenty of people playing the game to make the servers active, and the actual game is worthy of 4/4 on this very website — but if the initial sales were bad then, yo, it might mean less post-support from the folks at Zipper. Which is where MAG is likely to thrive. So it's pleasing to see MAG enter the UK sales charts at number four. Sure, the..

In 2004 I fell in love
My XBOX Live subscription had been running for about 6 months and I'd had many enjoyable sessions on Project Gotham Racing 2. But Live never truly demonstrated its potential until later that year.

We have a thing for Wild West games
It started (surprisingly) with Gun, and has been most recently fuelled by Call Of Juarez: Bound In Blood. But we're ready for more. Red Dead Redemption certainly looks like it might just be one of our favourite games in 2010. The variety, animation and visuals look stunning. Check out the trailer above for a look at the game's weaponry. It's awesome.
As a Playstation fan, it's been pretty gut-wrenching to see those exceptional Mass Effect 2 scores roll in
Not because we want the PC/XBOX 360 title to fail; but because we know we're not going to be able to play it on PS3. Yet. Still, with EA owning all publishing rights for the Mass Effect IP, we can always pray that a port of both the original game and its sequel will arrive on Sony's black..
