News: Grindhouse Arrives On PlayStation 3 With House Of The Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut

Grindhouse Arrives On PlayStation 3 With House Of The Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut

We're so excited

As we've probably written approximately eighteen times now, House Of The Dead: Overkill was one of our favourite Nintendo Wii titles. So we're ridiculously stoked to see the silly on-rails shooter make the jump to PS3 with full PlayStation Move support. The game's vulgar, potty-mouthed and downright ugly, but that's absolutely part of the charm. Catch the trailer after the jump for..

Original Sonic The Hedgehog Unlockable Hidden Within Sonic Generation

What we've played of Sonic Generations has really impressed us

We thought we were going to be taken by the game's reimagined 2D stages, but it's actually the modern Sonic stuff that's got us replaying levels over and over in order to beat our best time. We hope that the game features good leaderboard support so the competitive nature of the title can really shine. If you were worried that Sonic..

“We are so excited that Sonic has been awarded the first-ever Outstanding Contribution Award at the Golden Joysticks,” Sonic brand director David Corless said. “In today’s ever changing market it’s rare for a character to last for 5 years – let alone 20. And that’s..

House of the Dead Takes You Down to the Carnival

Will you hit a winner?

SEGA's gratuitously gory House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut is just a few days away from launch, with SEGA cranking up the excitement by showing off another new trailer, this time of the game's carnival stage. Not to be confused with Sony's upcoming Carnival Island, of course — they're very different beasts — the...

House Of The Dead: Overkill Takes You On A Trip To The Carnival Of Fun

Some people are absolutely terrified of clowns, but we don't really understand their trepidation

So they have hideous hair, abnormal grins and way too much make-up, but what's so frightening about... Oh right. Yeah, perhaps we do get it. If clown clowns frighten you when they're being worn by normal human-beings, then you probably shouldn't think about the possibility of a zombie outbreak taking..

News: SEGA Dishes The Dirt On Binary Domain's Multiplayer Component

SEGA Dishes The Dirt On Binary Domain's Multiplayer Component

We were pretty hot on what we saw of Binary Domain earlier in the year

The futuristic squad-based shooter is certainly a change of pace for the team ordinarily behind the fantastic Yakuza series, but it's got some neat ideas that set it apart from its immediate competitors. While SEGA's been keen to promote the single-player experience of Binary Domain, it's been pretty much silent about..

A second demo for the athletic hedgehog's latest adventure is set to hit the PlayStation Store this week. The demo will centre on Sonic's dash through Green Hill once again, but this time featuring hands-on time with both Classic and Modern Sonic. The game itself is due out early..

Daytona USA Confirmed For PlayStation Network, Europeans Made To Wait

You want the good news or the bad news? We'll start with the good: Daytona USA is indeed coming to the PlayStation Network on October 25th in North America

The bad news is that Europeans will be bafflingly made to wait until late November. No justification was offered. The classic racer has apparently been "tuned up and overhauled" for its re-release, with enhanced graphics, steering..

Nope, Valkyria Chronicles 3 Isn't Getting Localised

What's that? You were holding out hope for a Western release of Valkyria Chronicles 3? Really? Yeah, don't

SEGA has told Gamespot that a localisation of its third PSP strategy RPG is totally off the cards. The reason? Well the PSP isn't popular enough in Western markets apparently. That and Valkyria Chronicles 2 — which did get localised — sold like trash. But with the Sony portable market..

News: Binary Domain Trailer Hones In On Consequence System

Binary Domain Trailer Hones In On Consequence System

We were suitably impressed with Binary Domain when we got to check it out earlier in the year

In fact, given our monumentally low expectations it actually kind of blew us away. A unique art-style, some great shooting and fantastic presentation all contributed to our positive impressions. But we also came away intrigued by Binary Domain's consequence system. During the game you'll need to..

SEGA Teases 'Mysterious' New Game With Bunny Rabbit Trailer

A PlayStation 3 release of Daytona USA has been on the cards for some time now

The game has previously popped up on the website of various ratings boards, hinting at its impending arrival. Never ones to do things by the numbers, SEGA has released a new trailer teasing the release of a "mysterious" new game. We say "teasing" but what we really mean is "confirming". The..
