Now the balance has been redressed with the arrival of a new title in the Tom Clancy franchise.
So does Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. – which for the purposes of saving our fingers will be simply called HAWX from now on – reach for the sky? Or is it just SAM fodder?
ORiGO Games have been hard at work on DataFly since 2005 with nary a whisper from them since 2006. Now it seems that they are gearing up to finally show off what they have been hard at work on for the past four years. Unfortunately, they have encrypted the teasing information within three images.

Since the PS3 was announced, Sony has continually marketed the console as a multi-media device and not just for gaming.

Our latest Killzone 2 fix comes to you in the form of a Q&A from the developers themselves, Guerrilla Games. We had to track them down deep in the jungles of the Amazon region of Colombia; we had full network coverage the whole trip so it was ok. That Amsterdam headquarters is a front to confuse ‘the man’.
We talk about lessons learned from Killzone 1 and Killzone: Liberation, the inspiration behind Killzone 2’s Warzone online mode, and even take a challenge from Guerrilla Games. But what about the elephant in the room (aka the E3 2005 footage)? Did we dare bring it up? We’ll make you find out the hard way…
Superheroes are all the rage these days. Speaking of rage, we have a new trailer for X-Men Origins: Wolverine and boy is it slashtastic.

Check it out in all its adamantium glory…

Today, they made a post informing everyone that they have some information to be revealed tomorrow. What could this be?
