Rock Band 3's a music game
MTV's announced some new songs for the game ahead of GamesCom today. Names like Roxette get us excited, while Slipknot, Rammstein and HIM make us angry. It's a really mish-mash of tunes, and it's not even the good Roxette song. Consider us completely unexcited. You know what would be a good tune for Rock Band's keyboards? Bette Davis Eyes. Doo-be-doo-be-doo-be-duh-dooo..
There's a great stonking rumour over on NeoGAF tonight
According to user "De-Mon", Sony and EA are on the verge of announcing some kind of Mass Effect port entitled Mass Effect: Genesis. "De-Mon" anticipates that the title will be announced during either of the companies' GamesCom conferences tomorrow, but suggests a magazine reveal over the next three weeks is also possible..
Hands up if you thought the Medal Of Honor reboot was going to be a weak Call Of Duty rip-off? A few of you, fair enough
You're all right of course, except for the weak part. This debut single-player campaign footage is surprisingly good. Sure, it's all a bit "dudebro", but whatever. The shooting looks good, and the visuals are pretty stunning for an Unreal Engine game. Perhaps this will..
After details regarding Crysis 2's delay emerged last week, Crytek's been tellingly hush about giving the first-person shooter an alternative launch window
Until now, at least. The studio's just confirmed on Twitter that Crysis 2 will launch in March 2011. More specifically, the game will hit the US on March 22nd and the UK on March 25th.
Just like last year, EA's announced an enormous presence at the Cologne-based GamesCom event
EA will be holding a press conference along with Sony on Tuesday, 17th August. They've confirmed that a live-stream of the event will be available on their website. You can hit-up the page and add it to your bookmarks by clicking through here. We've added the list of title's they're bringing to Germany..
Admittedly we know about as much about cars as we do American Football
That is to say, not a lot. Still, while we're destined to get pulled up in the comments about our non-description of the above pictured car (we think it's a Dodge Viper?), we just want to say that we like the way it looks. In fact, we're pretty certain Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit's going to have some of the best police cars..
We're a few weeks away from gamescom now, when one can assume that FIFA 11 will be completely blown wide open
We know the game's a few months off, and we know that Kaka's the global cover-star. This trailer seems like a grab at mind-share more than anything. It's almost like, "HEY, YOU LIKE FIFA DON'T YOU!?! WELL, DON'T FOGET THERE'S ANOTHER ONE COMING OUT REAL SOON. ENJOY THIS 30 SECONDS OF..
EA's confirmed that Real Madrid "superstar", Kaka, will grace the cover of FIFA 11 worldwide
Apparently, the midfielder is thrilled about this news. Ive always been a fan of EA SPORTS and especially the FIFA series, he "said" in a totally-not-canned press release. Being on the FIFA 11 cover is a great honor for me since very few players have this opportunity, and there have been..
Let's be honest, when the early months of 2011 roll around, we'll probably all still be playing Gran Turismo 5 won't we? That's why we feel kind of sorry for Need For Speed: Shift 2, the follow-up to last year's NFS simulation attempt
The last version was good, but it had too many bugs and quirks to put it anywhere near Gran Turismo 4, let alone 5. That said, Shift did have a stunning cock-pit..
While The Fight: Lights Out is far from perfect, our hands-on time with the game made us realise that there's something in this "motion controlled beat 'em up" thing
It's genuinely satisfying when you throw a punch and watch it connect on screen. A perfect game for motion control punching would be the recently announced Fight Night: Champion. Sadly, in an interview with Eurogamer, EA's distanced..
NBA Jam is officially heading to the PlayStation 3
EA's just confirmed it. But it's not what you think... While NBA Jam will be heading to the PlayStation 3, it won't be the full version and you'll have to buy NBA Elite 11 to get it. EA's Jordan Edelstein explained: Were still holding back the Remix Tour for the Wii consumer, and thats about 20 hours of gameplay, he told ESPN. But for the..
SCEA's confirmed that they've teamed up with EA Sports to release a new Madden NFL 11 hardware bundle next week
The pack, which is likely to stay a US exclusive for obvious reasons, includes a black PSP-3000 and a copy of the game. It'll cost just $159.99, which is pretty decent if you're in the market for a PSP. There are more details over at the PlayStation Blog.
It had to happen at some point
In fact, we're amazed it didn't happen sooner. LittleBigPlanet was such a run-away success in 2008, another developer was always going to take the idea; seems like Guildford's EA Bright Light are the first though. Interesting that it should be the team up the road from Media Molecule though, eh? Create actually sounds rather interesting though — even if it does have..
This trailer made us a little sick in our mouth
As if Medal Of Honor didn't already look like a big "USA! USA!" patriot jerk-off fest, EA's enlisted on the help of America's favourite pop-rock band, Linkin Park, to make it more-so. This new Medal Of Honor trailer is mostly live-action, directed by the "creative" eye of Park's DJ Joe Hahn. There are stars and stripes, crying mums..
EA's confirmed that those who purchase the limited edition version of Medal Of Honor will be given the opportunity to play Battlefield 3 within 12 months of MoH's release
Anyone who owns special package of Medal Of Honor will be invited to the beta, which will be available for a limited time. The limited edition includes a bunch of in-game goodies, including weapons (MP-7, shotguns) and camouflage..
Check it out y'all, we're playing video gameeeeeees on our Play-a-Station Triple. Wahhhh! This Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit game is so hardcore. I'm gonna jump around bopping the air, whilst doing an upside down 'Peace' sign. So cool. I love video games, y'all. Love 'em. Spin some Shifty Shellshock, DJ." Urgh.
Just like Eminem and Call Of Duty; Linkin Park's teamed up with Medal Of Honor to provide some hard-hitting tunes that will really make you think about the consequences of war
Either that, or make you fist-pump as you fire off rounds of your AK-47. The embedded video - which features Linkin Park's "Catalyst" - is a teaser for a new trailer due August 1st. Apparently it'll feature a mix of..
The boss of Crytek, Cevat Yerli, has revealed in an interview that his company has "considered" making a PlayStation 3 exclusive in the past
But don't think because Cevat is speaking in the past-tense, that the idea is totally ruled out. The boss reckons a little something could well be on the cards — but first their first priority is Crysis 2 and XBOX 360 exclusive Codename: Kingdoms. Sony is..
In somewhat of an unexpected announcement, EA Los Angeles has revealed the creation of a new studio: "Danger Close"
The team are currently responsible for the upcoming Medal Of Honor reboot, and will presumably stick to games with a military theme. Well - you'd think so with a name like that, anyway. As far as we can tell, this seems like a case of simple rebranding if nothing else. Danger Close..
You know what's better than Klei's PSN download Shank? Klei's PSN download Shank with two people
That's exactly what the game's Comic-Con trailer focuses on — showing countless dudes being iced by multiple players. Remember the front cover of Rival Turf on the SNES? "SIMULTANEOUS TWO PLAYER ACTION". Yeah, Shank should have that on the...
Dead Space: Ignition is due this Fall and will set-up the events Isaac Clarke's set to encounter in Dead Space 2
During a showcase last night, EA presented a little of the downloadable prequel. The product's got a comic-book aesthetic, but is fully voiced and will allow you to choose your own adventure ending in four unique conclusions. Completing...
EA's announced that Klei's upcoming side-scrolling action game, Shank, will hit the US PlayStation Network on August 24th
The game will cost $14.99. Expect European pricing and release details to follow.
It's official guys, and it's just shot straight to the top of our most anticipated games of 2011: American McGee's confirmed that Spicy Horse are working with EA Partners to bring the successor to the classic PC title, Alice, to PlayStation 3
Alice: Madness Returns is set 11 years after the original game, with Alice having been released from an asylum but still struggling with "nightmarish..
Update @ 22:17BST -- it's official
Of all the places we expected to see Alice In Wonderland's White Rabbit, we'd rate Twitter pretty low. Still, that's where the mad little furry has appeared, teasing an announcement of American McGee's second Wonderland-tinged outing due later today. The rabbit Tweets: "Follow me and stay tuned for a major announcement from the mad world of Alice..
EA's just took the mystery shrouded wrapper off 38 Studios' secret project, which was once known as "Project Mercury"
The distinctly not-Mercury flavoured Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning is a single-player "open world" RPG, presumably of the flavour you'd expect from a game with a title like that. The game will compliment 38 Studios' long in-development MMO, Copernicus, and will even take..
Rock Band 3
Yes, Rock Band 3. That's a video game (apparently). And it's not too far away — the keyboard flavoured music game is set to attack US stores this October 26th. We're going to assume some people are excited by this development. As with any new game release, there are a host of pre-order bonuses. Wal-Mart people will get a $10 e-Gift Card thing-ma-jig. Amazon gets an exclusive in-game..
EA's just announced the next entry in the Fight Night franchise, Fight Night: Champion
The game's due in 2011. According to developers EA Vancouver, the biggest bullet-point is the game's new single-player mode, which will break the mold of what is expected in a single-player sports game. Players will be introduced to an entirely new way to step between the ropes and experience the drama,..
When you tell us that Criterion are making an arcade racing game, you don't really need to give us any more information
We're sold at that point. Hey, guess what? Criterion are making an arcade racing game. Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit takes the franchise all the way back to its roots. Do you remember the original game on the 3DO? ("Wanna go home and cry to your Mummy?"). Yeah, Need For..
Hey Dragon Age fans
Remember we told you to keep your eyes peeled to the Internet today? Well here's your reward: Dragon Age 2 is official as it gets, gracing the cover of the latest issue of GameInformer. Bioware's also lifted the lid on Dragon Age 2's official website. Details are scarce but the website does note that you are set to be "forced to fight for survival in an ever-changing world
EA's confirmed that Dragon Age 2 is a real video game, currently in development
There have been murmurings about the game for some time, but EA's finally confirmed the game's existence in a press release.Currently announced projects at BioWare include the development of ongoing downloadable content for Mass Effect 2, one of the highest rated video games of all time, Dragon Age 2, the highly..
Sounds like downloadable prequels are the new in-thing
THQ's planning one for Red Faction, and Capcoms got one planned for Dead Rising 2 (albeit an exclusive). Now Visceral Games has announced Dead Space: Ignition, a downloadable prequel for the upcoming Dead Space 2. According to Dead Space franchise executive producer Steve Papoutsis, it's...
Boom to the power of boom! No longer will you have to put up with sub-high definition visuals in your NBA Jam... Because it's just been rated for the PlayStation 3. Granted, the rating was carried out by a German board (and those guys are probably too high on World Cup fever to be thinking straight), but it's vary rare that a professional classification division would rate a product that..
Just so you know - Visceral Games are teasing something to do with Dead Space 2
They're teasing hard. A mysterious piece of artwork has popped up on their Facebook profile, with the words: "If you look closely you might find that there's a hint hidden in here about a big announcement we'll be making this week. Let the guessing begin!" Ooooh a puzzle. We're going to guess it has..
EA's confirmed that FIFA 11 will launch in Europe on October 1st
The Americans will get it a few days earlier on September 28th. They think football is played with the hands though, so y'know. EA's also revealed one of the game's new features. The Creation Centre allows you to create players and teams using a web-based application on FIFA's official site. You'll be able to give players distinctive..
Don't call the fire-brigade... Yet. These are just the words of EA executive John Schappert. He's talking about one of the most exciting features of the Sony E3 press conference: Sony's alignment with third-party publisher EA. The PlayStation 3's getting a whole pile of exclusive content courtesy of EA, and people are curious to know what sparked the deal. EA's COO John Shappert..
One of our most anticipated games of forever is the sequel to American McGee's Alice
"He's making a sequel?" we hear you cry. Well, yes. It has been kind of hush-hush hasn't it? He definitely is though, we've even posted a frightening trailer. If you're of a nervous disposition, you probably shouldn't click that link. Anyway, last time we posted about Alice's sequel was in November, so..
Microsoft's saving grace during a lacklustre E3 was their most casual title
Dance Central, the Kinect only groove game, has been getting rave reviews from those who checked it out during the course of E3. And it could be coming to the PlayStation 3. That's according to a report posted by Kotaku, who claim that Harmonix are considering using the PlayStation Move to bring the dance 'em up to the PS3..
Industry analyst Michael Pachter has exclaimed that Criterion's Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit is the game that gave him his "oh my God" moment at this year's E3
He told CVG: "Although I was most impressed with shooter games [at E3], there were a remarkable number of high-quality titles. I think that consumers are going to split a much bigger pot of dollars among more games, so it's hard to..
Are you loving the sound of vuvuzelas or detesting them? FIFA 11's got you covered either way
One of the game's newest features will allow you to tweak custom audio settings. Users will be able to upload sound clips — "Fivvvve Cantonas" — and mix them into the stadium ambience in accordance to events in the match. Which is basically amazing.
One of the most surprising elements of Sony's E3 press conference yesterday, was the enthusiasm with which they pushed multiplatform titles
A move which has long been considered Microsoft's forte, has seemingly been adopted by the upper-Gods at Sony, who offered EA a whole sub-segment of the press conference. From that we got two pretty huge announcements for PlayStation 3 owners - that both Dead..
Sony highlighted their relationship with EA pretty hard during their press conference today, revealing that the PlayStation 3 version of Dead Space 2 would come packed with a copy of Dead Space: Extraction, exclusively on the PlayStation 3
The Wii title will be updated for the PlayStation 3 and will include PlayStation Move controls to match the Wii experience. It basically makes the PS3 SKU of the..
Epic and People Can Fly's ostentatious shooter, Bulletstorm, is due to hit US shelves on February 22nd, 2011, Epic's Cliff Bleszinskis just announced
VG247's got a batch of new screens for you to drool over. The game's big hook is its focus on stylish, kills. It's more "outrageous fun" than "gritty seriousness" — if you get what we mean.
Sorry, we switched off during Peter Moore's presentation of EA Sports MMA during EA's press conference last night
Does it look dull? Hell yeah it looks dull. But that's only because we're not the intended audience. Sure we like the UFC games — they're fine. But they don't exactly fill us with blistering excitement. For those that care: EA Sports MMA is coming out October 19th on the PlayStation..
EA confirmed during their press conference last night that their upcoming Medal Of Honor reboot would be getting a multiplayer beta starting June 21st
Players will get access to two maps and will be playable on the PlayStation 3. EA also revealed a new rewards system for fans of shooter games — the "Gun Club" will provide members with benefits including in-game content, early access to..
So, in what's totally not a knee-jerk reaction to the Call Of Duty: Black Ops' Vietnam setting, EA's announced a new expansion pack for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 which takes players to - you guessed it - Vietnam
We'll update you with details as soon as we get them. EA's also announced a new "Gun Club" service, designed to reward those who...
Alongside a deeply impressive gameplay demo for Dead Space 2, EA's just announced that the survival horror title will launch on January 25th
The gameplay looks familiar, so no need to worry about EA going off on a complete tangent with this one. It looks awesome. We'll be finding out more about Dead Space 2 during Sony's E3 press conference tomorrow.
Criterion's just announced that their Need For Speed game, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit will launch November 16th with a host of community features, and a return to the franchise's heritage
EA's released a new developer video which highlights FIFA 11's new Personality+ features
The new features' purpose is to give variation between players of different skills, and the tech demos EA have to show off are very impressive. One example shows a player of low skill turning on the ball and scuffing his shot into the ground, where a more skillful player is able to turn and volley the ball into..
Crytek's just revealed that Crysis 2 will be one of the first multiplatform titles to be playable in 3D
The game will join Killzone 3, amongst the ranks of the first FPS titles to support the television industry's latest push. "The success of 3-D movies like Avatar and the introduction of 3-D TVs from the hardware manufacturers tells us that this is the next big movement in entertainment,..
Klei Entertainment's upcoming PSN beat 'em up, Shank, is looking every inch the high-profile downloadable
It's unique art-style, ostentatious humour and fantastic animation really have our interest piqued. It kinda looks like a 2D Devil May Cry, don't you think? Consider us stoked.
Eagle-eyed users over at TheSixthAxis have spotted a little glimpse of Criterion's new Need For Speed title in GTTV's all access preview show
The split-second EA booth tease reveals Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, the as-of-yet unannounced franchise update from Criterion - the dude's who usually make the Burnout games. No other details have been revealed yet, but you can bet you're life they are..
Watching this pre-E3 trailer of Dead Space 2 reminded us of a couple of things
Numero uno; we still think the original Dead Space was an absolute masterpiece. Numero dos; we can't wait to shoot the limbs off necromorphs all over again. To be fair, this Dead Space 2 trailer doesn't really show you anything you couldn't have experienced in the original game. But in some ways, that's the beauty of..
There are guns and fancy visual effects, therefore it must be Crysis 2, right? Here's your first look at Crytek's long-hyped first-person shooter which is looking
.. alright. Perhaps this is a bad selection of footage, but it all looks like rather average run-of-the-mill console shooter stuff to us, with the exception of a few standout moments (like where that building collapses, that's..
Our favourite thing about E3 - countdown teaser websites. Not! Next up Criterion, who are teasing their totally-secret-totally-not-a-new-Need-For-Speed-game Need For Speed game. The countdown ends just as EA's press conference takes off. Say, that's convenient isn't it? Watch the clock tick here. Sigh.
That USA Today video we posted yesterday was just a taster for today's deluge of information, as the Rock Band 3 embargo has finally lifted revealing details of real Fender six-strings and The Cure
That's right, The Cure. We were going to poo-poo all over this Rock Band 3 trailer because, honestly, we couldn't care less about it. But then "Just Like Heaven" came on, and we realised..
EA's Bright Lights studio may be working on the Harry Potter games at present, but they've also got another title in the pipeline -- a PSN release called Spare Parts
The game's based around the concept of robots working together to rebuild their space-ship. The game's a co-operative "online action adventure" title, where players will...
When was the last time you saw a game get moved forward? Yeah, long time ago right
Games only ever get delayed, they never get pushed forward. Well, except for Crysis 2 that is. EA's just announced that they're moving the game forward into the Autumn, as opposed to the previously announced end-of-year date. Woohoo. The news comes via a trade press advert in the latest issue of MCV. Word. If the..
With E3 mere days away now, the industry's anticipation is nearing fever-pitch
With pretty high stakes all around for the platform holders, it can be easy to over-look the actual core of the event in anticipation of megaton announcements and new hardware — that's the games. As we continue our E3 build-up, we list our five most anticipated PlayStation games of the show. In order to appear on this..
If you've been following us on Twitter, you'll know we've had some pretty strong predictions about Rock Band 3
We totally got the keyboard bit right. We totally got the 25 key bit right. Sadly, we were off the mark when we said the game would have light-up keys, but we were pretty close right? USA Today's just put up a preview for the game which we've embedded above. To be honest, it's Rock..
FIFA games are really, really good
Seriously, ever since FIFA 08 (roughly), EA Sports have been on a roll with the franchise. The thing is, FIFA screenshots are really, really boring. This first screen from FIFA 11 is no exception. It's Chelsea vs. Arsenal. It's John Terry. Wooohooo.
Confirmation indeed that ex-Infinity Ward employees Jason West and Vince Zampella work fast
The duo, who were sacked by Activision just a few months ago, are now teasing some form of status update at next week's E3 showdown. They'll probably show-up at the EA press conference, seeing as that's the publisher they are currently in partnership with. The news comes via a F
It's apt that the debut trailer for the console version of The Sims 3 is being hosted on MTV
It fits right in. Now we have no real problem with "scene", teeny-bop humour and stuff - but this is a step too far for our tastes. It's like, it's trying so hard to be hip, new and cool that it comes across old and tired. Just show us the game next time.
Publishers wonder why Wii games don't sell very well
Presumably because they're considered as "downloadable quality" titles elsewhere. Haha - but Nintendo's "loss" (it's not really a loss is it, but it's a good link phrase) is our gain. Or something. That's right - those Dead Space: Extraction rumours are back. Sounds like the...
We told you Geoff Keighley was back in the game didn't we? He's just sent out a Tweet regarding the reveal of Dead Space 2's first gameplay footage next week in GameTrailers' pre-E3 special
Another big game in our pre-e3 special next Fri First real hd gameplay footage from Dead Space 2. The show will also have the first gameplay footage of Killzone 3, amongst presumably a few others..
EA and Warner Bros
have announced today that the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows video game will follow the movie's structure of being divided into two parts. The first part will release this Autumn. The final Harry Potter adventure has given us the opportunity to make a darker and more action-oriented game than we have before, says Jonathan Bunney, VP of production at EA Bright Light..
Given our certainty earlier this week that Rock Band 3 would feature some form of light-up keyboard, a report from Ars Technica sounds kind of disappointing
They're claiming that Rock Band 3 will feature a keytar. A keytar? Come on that's lame. Ars are all speculating that a new "Pro" mode will be included "that will require proper technique, and may lead to actual skills on guitar..
Well it's happened
It's been on the cards for, well, basically forever. Insomniac Games has finally announced that they're ready to try out multiplatform development. Insomniac's announced today that they are jumping into bed with the EA Partners programme (essentially a publishing deal that allows Insomniac to keep the rights to whatever games they create) and are developing a "brand new..
If you have any interest in Green Day then you've probably checked out the demo for Green Day: Rock Band
We're kind of hoping your interest in Green Day spans the Dookie-era and, well, only the Dookie-era. Anyway, irrelevance. What's important is the teaser image at the end of the Green Day: Rock Band demo. It shows teaser images of guitars, bass, vocals, drums and... keyboards — followed by a..
What could Rock Band 3 do that's going to be so radically different? It's not E3 yet so we can't actually say, but Harmonix wants you to know that whatever they do, it'll be the "next big leap in music gaming"
Appropriately named Dan Teasdale has blogged that "you'll be surprised just how big this game is". Apparently it's going to be a "big step forward". Going on past..
Crytek's been hyping Crysis 2 for a while now
They claim that they're going to set the graphical benchmark of all three consoles the game's due to release on. From the Playstation 3's perspective - it's some challenge to take on Sony's own in-house studios. But man - these screens do look pretty. We're assuming they're running on a super-powerful PC rig, but if Crytek can get the visuals anywhere..
Thank goodness for EA, Epic Games and People Can Fly, who are about to embark on the first non-super gritty military shooter in what seems like ages
Bulletstorm - a mish-mash of colours, ridiculous guns and a "skill kills" - looks set to bring actual genuine brainless fun back to the FPS genre. And we welcome that with open arms. Boom!
EA's announced today that they are adding a four-player online co-op mode to their hit shooter, Battlefield: Bad Company 2
The mode's called "Onslaught". Apparently it'll be playable on four maps - Valparaiso, Atacama Desert, Isla Inocentes, and Nelson Bay - with each being redesigned with new lighting, time of day and vehicles. Apparently each map will have a different gameplay focus. No..
EA bigwigs confirmed a list of software due to be shown at this year's E3 event last night, claiming that one big "marquee" title would be shown in 3D
Seeing as how the Playstation 3 is the only system set to support 3D this year (if you discount Nintendo's new 3DS anyway) we can't imagine what EA has to show - but we're secretly keeping our fingers...
Bye used game sales
Seriously: bye. EA's just announced that they're set to introduce an "Online Pass" that includes access to "online services, features, and bonus content" with every new EA Sports game starting Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11. If you buy a copy of the game where the online pass has already been redeemed (i.e. you bought the game used), well guess what? EA are going to..
This year's E3 feels bigger than any we've ever known
With the longest console lifespan ever predicted, the stakes are high for Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo - all of whom will be competing for the strongest software and peripheral line-up that will ensure the extension of their system's cycle. It's also big for the third-parties, with Activision, EA, Capcom and THQ all expecting to show multiple..
Did you ever wish you could play Monopoly in high-definition? We do all the time
And now we're going to be able to thanks to Monopoly Streets. The EA release aims to transform the classic board-game into a dynamic gameworld, representative of the economic status of your properties. Each player will also have a headquarters that grows and crumbles in accordance to the player's fortunes. If you're..
Not only does this latest Medal Of Honor trailer feature people jumping out of helicopter things, it also features heart-felt communication between a working soldier and his Missus
Altogether now: aww. Presumably the heart-felt message was recorded moments before shooting people in the face. Because, y'know, that's just what video games are like innit.
How would you like to play a Call Of Duty game that's not got Call Of Duty on the box? No - not Respawn Entertainment's new project, nor the half-hearted Modern Warfare 2 (which totally had Call Of Duty on the box)
We're talking about EA's Medal Of Honor reboot, which couldn't look more like a Call Of Duty game if it ran out into the street naked screaming: "I'm a Call Of Duty game."..
Let's cut to the chase shall we - MySims: Sky Heroes is a casual air-combat game where your MySim (think a Nintendo Mii) takes flight against the evil Morcubus and his army
Fight well and your characters fame rises, allowing you to buy (in digital terms) a host of presumably whimsical upgrades for your wings. The game'll feature splitscreen online multiplayer, in both co-op and competitive game..
Frank Gibeau, president of the EA Games label, and Greg Goodrich have come out to say that the recent firings of Jason West and Vince Zampella created an opportunity that the company just couldn't pass up on
But there's no hard feelings between the EA duo and competition over at Activision. In fact in the very same interview the EA pair go on to say they wish Bungie all the best in their new..
Australia's ratings board, the OFLC, has filed a rating for an upcoming EA title - known only as the mysterious "Project Red"
Finger pointing suggests this might be Swedish studio Starbreeze's attempt at rebooting the old Bullfrog franchise Syndicate, but details are groggy. All we know is that Project Red will probably appear at E3 in some capacity. Yes, we'd put money on it in fact.
These first shots of EA, Epic and People Can Fly's Bulletstorm show less the gritty, war torn environments you might have expected, and more tropical locations with ridiculous violence
Needless to say they look rather good. Check out the screens over at Joystiq and watch your excitement soar by, ooh, 100%.
Still hyped over yesterday's phenomenal Dead Space 2 reveal? Yeah - us too
Well prepare to get stoked all over again - as EA's released a slew of artwork pertaining to the new horror release. You can check out the moody imagery courtesy of Kotaku.
IGN's pulled out their unitology scrolls and sat down to some serious work decoding the latest Dead Space 2 trailer
Hidden messages include "Reborn as one 614" - perhaps hinting at EA's E3 conference scheduled for June 14th. Less interesting are the words "Key", "Konverge" and "Altman", which tend to have no real meaning to speak of yet - though the name..
It might have leaked last night, but EA's just revealed the official trailer for the upcoming Dead Space 2, erm, officially
That's indeed correct folks, the video short, entitled "Dementia", features dead people, necromorphs and protagonist Isaac's actual face. Awesome. Let us know what you think.
If you wanted to know what Isaac Clarke looks like in Dead Space 2 then - voila
Now you know. Joystiq captured the shot of the now toughened-up protagonist via a Dead Space 2 trailer that somehow leaked onto YouTube a day early. The trailer is in fact due to go live officially today - so if you want to see it you should probably tune in to PushSquare today. We didn't see the trailer while it was..
As was already promised, EA's confirmed that The Sims 3 is indeed in development for the Playstation 3 and is due on the system in time for the end-of-year holidays
The console version of the PC game will include new features such as "Karma Powers" which determine whether your Sim can "get lucky" or, on the flipside, suffer an "epic fail". The PS3 version of the game..
Look, we're British
We're sorry. When someone says football we think of the sport where you, y'know, play with your feet. Not that other game people call football that's absolutely not football. Take the cover for Madden 11, which features Drew Brees (apparently). It shows the man holding a ball in his hand. Football. Mmmhm. We wanted to tell you more about the cover of Madden 11, but Joystiq seems..
Hats-off to Crytek
Rather than going for platform-parity (and essentially gimping everyone), they are trying to squeeze every inch of performance out of each of the three platforms their upcoming shooter Crysis 2 is to be released on.
