Man, The Vulture's A Bit Of A Jerk In This Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions Trailer

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions -- the upcoming Spidey outing from Activision -- will span four different Spider-Man "universes"

One of the universes is Spider-Man Noir; a darker version of the Spider-Man story in which Uncle Ben is not shot by criminals, but eaten by the Vulture. This little gameplay snippet from the noir sub-section of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions shows ol' Petey Parker..

DJ Hero 2's Multiplayer Is Vast, Exciting

DJ Hero is a party game

It is strange, therefore, that the original game had nothing in the way of party modes. Thankfully, DJ Hero 2 rectifies that. There are a ton of multiplayer modes being added to the game, the most exciting of which is the "Party Play" mode. This allows players to drop-in and drop-out of the game seamlessly, without ever stopping the music from playing. So you can..

That One Soundgarden Song Was Pretty Good Though, Wasn't It?

Activision's announced a "ground breaking" deal today that will reward launch-day buyers of Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock with the new Soundgarden record a week early

Those who pick up the game will get a retail version of the band's new album and downloadable content for the game. The album, Telephantasm: A Retrospective, includes plenty of Soundgarden "classics" and one new track. Only..

Tiesto Brings Four To The Floor, Epilepsy To DJ Hero 2

Activision's confirmed that the Netherland's own DJ maestro, Tiesto, will join the roster of DJ Hero 2

He'll be providing two unique mixes to the game, aswell as his likeness. Presumably the mixes will include plenty of four to the floor kick patterns and gated synths. 'Cos that's what Tiesto does, innit? As much as we like Tiesto, we can't help but feel DJ Hero already played its trump-card with..

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Is Almost Certain To Receive Hardened & Prestige Editions

Last year Activision announced a collector's edition to end all collector's editions

Night vision goggles came with the $149 SKU of Modern Warfare 2. Looks like they're preparing to do something similar all over again. US retailer buy.com (good name for a website, right?) has listed Hardened and Prestige editions for the upcoming Call Of Duty: Black Ops. It seems impossible that Activision woul

James Bond 007: Blood Stone Opening Credits Are Basically What You'd Expect

Fancy smoke? Check

Swish silhouettes of men pointing guns? Check. Swish silhouettes of ladies touching themselves? Check. Big, orchestral driven audio backing? Check. Diva reminding us how well she can sing? Check. Jewellery and expensive champagne? Check. Fancy cars power sliding in slow motion? Check. Helicopters blowing up huge diamonds? Check. Yep, this is definitely the start to Bizarre..

Transformers: War For Cybertron Gets New DLC Next Week

We've been searching for a reason to return to Transformers: War For Cybertron's surprisingly good multiplayer component for a few days now

Right on cue, developers High Moon Studios has dropped details on some upcoming DLC for the fan-friendly product. Aswell as adding in War For Cybertron's pre-order exclusive characters - Shockwave, Demolishor and Jazz - the new DLC will also throw a handful of..

News: Call Of Duty Subscription Fees Debunked Once Again

Call Of Duty Subscription Fees Debunked Once Again

Yesterday we posted a video which seemed to suggest that Modern Warfare 2 (and presumably the franchise as a whole) was on the verge of getting some kind of subscription fee

But it's not. Infinity Ward's community manager Robert Bowling clarified: “For the record, nobody has to pay to play COD or MW2 multiplayer, nor will they.” Josh Olin of Treyarch had a similar thing to say regarding Call Of..

Ruh-Roh: Call Of Duty To Implement Subscription Fee?

Ruh-roh? Do you like Call Of Duty? Chances are you probably do

Well get ready to pay for it, because those rumours about Activision prepping a separate subscription fee for Call Of Duty's multiplayer may have just been turned up a notch. A video (embedded after the jump) posted by a 360Junkies member clearly shows some form of subscription model implemented into the XBOX 360 version of Modern Warf

Introducing James Bond 007: Blood Stone, All-Racing, All-Shooting Action From Bizarre Creations

If ever we had a weakness, file it under James Bond games

We were probably the only publication who genuinely loved (and played to death) the last James Bond game, Quantum Of Solace. So good. Perhaps then, our excitement for James Bond 007: Blood Stone should be tempered a little. GoldenEye aside, Bond games aren't traditionally good. But they are Bond games, y'know. There's something to be said..

There are a whopping 108 musicians/bands/producers taking part. Rather than us sitting here typing a load of waffle, allow us to just pick out some of the listed artists that take our fancy: Basement Jaxx, Chic, Lady GaGa, Metallica, M.I.A., Stevie Wonder, Timbaland. That's just a cross-section. This game's..

Push Square's Most Anticipated PlayStation Games Of Holiday 2010: Call Of Duty Black Ops

How predictable

Another Call Of Duty game. Fantastic, right? Well, yes, apparently. We didn't think Call Of Duty Black Ops would ever make this list either, but everything we've seen of the game over the past 12-months has truly stunned us. For a while now we've been discussing how the fallout from Infinity Ward might affect the team from Treyarch — and their whole attitude with this game strikes..

You Know How You Thought DJ Hero Bombed? Nuh-Uh!

We liked DJ Hero

We liked DJ Hero a lot actually. We bought it launch day. Launch day! Y'know, when it cost like a bajillion pounds. It had an understandably slow start, debuting at number 20 on the UK charts and managing to shift just 122k units in the US during its launch month. The game had legs though. Probably in thanks to numerous price cuts, DJ Hero has shifted a whopping 1.2million units to..

Transformers: War For Cybertron DLC Fetches A Packet Online

Depending on the retailer you ordered Transformers: War For Cybertron from, you got a bunch of different DLC codes

Soundwave, Jazz and Demolisher were all rewards for pre-ordering the game. Now they're fetching over $100 on eBay. Seriously. A listing ending on Monday scooped a whopping $105 for the Amazon bonus, Demolisher. Crazy. The other codes are netting between $20 and $50. What's hilarious is..

Activision Talking To Hasbro About More Transformers Games

Transformers: War For Cybertron was a really good game

Really good. It proves there's a market for good quality Transformers content that isn't tied into dodgy live-action movies. That doesn't mean every game has to be a shooter however. Speaking at BotCon, High Moon Studio's Matt Tieger and Hasbro's Aaron Archer took part in a little Q&A session with fans. One of the questions asked pointed to..

.. We're in heaven — DJ Hero 2 has been officially announced and now, via Joystiq, we've got some early details on the game's set-list. Activision's outrageously expensive E3 party - which featured performances from Usher, NERD, Chris Cornell, Tool's Maynard Keenan and Jane's Addiction - also featured plenty of DJ Hero 2, with the lists of artists we've placed after the jump all due to make an..
