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
The trailer features the thoughts and opinion of fans (to its detriment), but there's enough new gameplay footage to make the video worth a watch.
The bigger story here is that Twisted Metal was originally gunning for a Teen rating in the US, with David Jaffe and his Eat Sleep Play team gunning for the lower rating in order to reach a wider audience
But the studio's since decided that a Mature rating is more appropriate for the Twisted Metal franchise, and we couldn't agree more. "Without blood, it felt a little weird, frankly,"..
Zen Studios' excellent licensed PlayStation Network pinball title, Marvel Pinball, is coming to the PlayStation Vita the developer has confirmed

The emphasis of the footage coming out of Starhawk's Comic-Con panel is to demonstrate the game's transitions between gameplay and cut-scenes

RelyOnHorror's running a stonking rumour regarding the announcement of Resident Evil 6 this morning
The site claims it was sent the game's logo by someone able to attend a behind-the-scenes Capcom press conference at Comic-Con. The image shows off what pertains to be Resident Evil 6's official logo, and a 15th September date. Interestingly, that 15th September date coincides with the first day of..
Rocksteady's dropped a new Batman: Arkham City trailer right out of the San Diego Comic-Con
The new footage focuses squarely on the Penguin, who's adopted a cockney accent since his last outing. Don't worry though, the Penguin's British-ness totally works, making the character a little more rough-and-ready than previous incarnations. The rest of the trailer focuses primarily on Batman kicking thugs..
We've said it once and we'll say it again: House Of The Dead: Overkill Extended Cut is one of our most anticipated PlayStation 3 games of the year
The original Wii title was a roller-coaster ride of eff-bombs, gore and zombies giving birth to other zombies. So we can't wait to experience the whole affair in high-definition with PlayStation Move. Check out the latest trailer for evidence of the..
Capcom's confirmed Poison as a playable character in its upcoming cross-over brawler, Street Fighter X Tekken
The Final Fight bad-girl (bad-guy?) will join Yoshimitsu and Steve Fox when the game launches at an undisclosed date next year. The game itself is coming together brilliantly. We continue to be in awe of the way Capcom's managed to seamlessly integrate Tekken characters into Street..

Activision's kicked off Comic-Con with a slew of North American release date announcements
Prototype 2 was the first to get a date, with the distant April 24th, 2012 being the target. Next up was Silicon Knights' X-Men Destiny, a game that, admittedly, we've seen very little of. That game's scored a September 27th release date. Finally, Activision attached an October 4th release date to the..
Let's deal with the white elephant in the room: we know Capcom released Marvel Vs Capcom 3 less than six months ago
But that game's already old news, as the Japanese publisher has just announced Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3. And it's coming out as soon as November. The "mid-range" re-release (read: $40) will include 12 new fighters and eight new arenas. That brings the game's roster up to..
It's that time of the year again
The time of the year where publishers of not-quite-blockbuster-games delay their big fall releases because of the looming threat of Call Of Duty and Uncharted and Batman and Battlefield. 2K Games' The Darkness II is the first notable title to be pushed out of its release window, presumably for marketing reasons. The title will now release in February, as opposed to..

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 producer Ryota Niitsuma has promised to give attendees of the game's official panel a sneak peak at something new in the series. Whether it's new DLC, or (our bet) a full "Super" upgrade remains a tightly-sealed secret. Attendees will also get the opportunity to win..
We never hate James Bond games
While there are good examples of Bond games, and bad examples of Bond games, we usually end up enjoying them regardless of their quality. Perhaps it's because we love the franchise in general, but we've had love affairs with both Quantum Of Solace and Blood Stone already this generation — both of which were panned by critics. So, are we ready for more James Bond?..
Legendary Pictures has chimed in to reveal that the long-rumored Mass Effect movie is in production
Writer Mark Protosevich (of I Am Legend fame, if anyone's hoping for a Will Smith Shepherd) and creator series Casey Hudson will take to the tables at San Diego Comic-Con on July 22nd to discuss the upcoming Mass Effect flick.

Comic-Con is not about comic books anymore
It's about movies and video games. So it's not surprise to see Sony announce that its bringing Starhawk — Lightbox Interactive's spiritual successor to Warhawk — to the show next month.
