This includes Nazi references, as well as a particularly brutal interrogation scene. The game's due worldwide next week. Get hype.

Parasite Eve Rocks Japanese PlayStation Network Next Month

Blimey: The Voice Of Agent 47 Outs "Gob Smacking" Hitman 5

It's been on the cards for a long time

IO might have tried their hand at some different titles - notably Kane & Lynch, though who could forget the surprisingly good Mini Ninjas? - but a new Hitman's always been on the cards. It sounds like Agent 47's voice actor, David Bateson, might finally have spilled the beans. Speaking in an interview with TheGamingLiberty, Bateson mentioned the fifth game..

Brilliant. We should have known, there's been mumblings about bringing the classic PlayStation horror franchise to the PS3's Store for some time now; but it looked like Square Enix were dallying. Apparently not though -..

Horror: Square Enix Looking For Staff With HD Experience

Heaven forbid Square Enix should want programmers with experience of next-generation platforms to work on Final Fantasy Versus XIII

According to the Internet, Square's job listing - which specifies “development experience on a PS3, or XBOX 360 package title" - means the once exclusive PlayStation 3 title must be going multiplatform. Of course right? Because they should only be employing folks..

Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Final Fantasy Agito XIII Look Pretty Darn Rad

Square Enix has been in a tussle with YouTube all day trying to pull these Fabula Nova Crystallis trailers that debuted at TGS last month

Honestly, We're Pretty Stoked For The 3rd Birthday

We are not massive Parasite Eve fans

We are not massive PSP shooter fans. But something about Square Enix's The 3rd Birthday has always held our attention. That's why we were pretty disappointed when Square decided not to release the game's Tokyo Game Show trailer. Why wouldn't they? Silly. Whatever. It's up now. And as you can see, the game looks rather good. The shooting looks similar to a Syphon..

The New Dissidia Game Has The Worst Title In The History Of Video Games (But We Still Can't Wait For It To Hit The West In 2011)

Sit and digest the new Dissidia game's title for a second - DISSIDIA 012 [duodecim]:  Final Fantasy

We don't think we're exaggerating when we say this is truly the worst name for a video game ever conceived. But then, we expect nothing less from the publisher who puts the 13th iteration of their franchise under the "Fabula Nova Crystallis" banner. Cut it out Square. It's dumb. Not so..

The first ever Final Fantasy Versus XIII gameplay footage has leaked out of TGS, and it might be grainy and off-camera, but it still looks amazing

Ok, so it's hard to really tell the intricacies of the graphics engine, but going by this off-camera footage we're going to assume it's amazing. There looks to be a pretty impressive draw-distance. The combat, however, looks less exciting. It's hard to..

In Japan, you will not see parts of human beings been blown apart in Call Of Duty: Black Ops

That's because the game's been issued a CERO Z rating (think adults rating) with the "brutal or grotesque portrayal" of limbs removed. Boom. That's the end of that. Of course Japanese lurkers, it's worth noting that the PlayStation 3 is region free... You could import it. Yes.
