Friends with benefits
There was a time when gaming was all about hanging out with mates and competing on the couch. That time has since become a distant memory, as the importance of online gaming grows.

Starhawk is a dense experience that demands more time than our demo allowed

Comic-Con may be old like a bad joke, but it's not stopped Lightbox Interactive from releasing a fresh bout of Starhawk footage out of the show

Creating new IP must be one of the most exciting and daunting tasks for any game designer
On one hand, it must be extremely satisfying to see your ideas brought to life in front of you. But on the other hand, it must be a serious creative challenge. Great ideas flourish at good teams, but they don't always grow on trees. Thus it's interesting to observe the process Lightbox Interactive adopted for..

Homefront, Battlefield, Call Of Duty
All unique franchises with quality components, but irritatingly similar in design.

"Sony, of course they want to sell games and make a lot of money," Lightbox..

Stop tipping us, already
We've read the rumours about Warhawk 2, and weren't going to post them, but seeing as our inbox has been flooded [well, it was more like two or three messages - Ed] with links to Just Push Start's report, we'll damn well cover it, alright?

Remember when it was just a rumour that Lightbox Interactive (a team made up of former Incognito employees) were making a Warhawk type game in space?

Now, it doesn't exactly take the biggest of genius' to conclude that this is indeed the..
