Sonic Generations Launch Trailer Spins Online

"Best Sonic game in years," is a phrase we've been dishing out rather liberally in recent months

But it couldn't be closer to the money. SEGA's really hitting the jack-pot with Sonic Generations, providing a campaign that not only appears to nail the two-dimensional aspect of Sonic The Hedgehog's gameplay, but also the three-dimensional portion too.

Sonic Generations Is The Most Pre-Ordered Game In The Franchise's History

Sonic The Hedgehog, as a video game series, has a long and storied history

Spanning more than 20 years, and featuring in massive number of games, the character has been a favourite of video game fans for years. But his latest outing in Sonic Generations is surprisingly the most pre-ordered title in the franchise's history. There's probably two reasons for that. The video game industry today is much..

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..

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..
