What is more fun than playing in a pretend rock band with a bunch of your friends? How about playing in a pretend LEGO rock band with a bunch of your friends?
In conjunction with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games, Harmonix and MTV Games are merging the two popular franchises of LEGO and Rock Band to create a new rock experience.
Today, a mysterious countdown site has gone live. We know, we know, countdown sites are quite boring and usually build unnecessary hype. But come on, this is Marvel vs. Capcom 2 we’re talking about, one of the greatest fighters to grace the PS2.
How do we know this you ask? Well, let’s take a look at the facts…
Talk about a comeback story. After less than optimal global sales for the stellar looking (and stellar playing) Valkyria Chronicles we received great news from the SEGA America Blog. Thanks to all the hard work from the hardcore fans (this humble PS3A cast included), and last week’s DLC release, Valkyria Chronicles is now one the top PS3 games both the United States and Japan.
But how big of an impact could a five month old game have on the American and Japanese markets?
Depending on where you are reading from (or when for that matter), we may be four days late. Never mind that, just say ‘yes’ like the rest of the U.S. did to Jim Carrey’s Yes Man. Dethroning Zack and Miri Make a (very good) Porno is the man who says ‘yes’ to everything. Good thing he doesn’t work in this writer’s office. Them co-workers is brutal.
Boxing fans best prepare themselves for EAs Fight Night Round 4 as you watch this beautiful video of the different styles available in the game. See mens faces crumble under the force of a mean right hook or uppercut. Watch as champions are lifted, hands held high. This is what boxing’s all about…
Do you love SingStar as much as the next guy, provided that the next guy is not this guy? Because we don’t think anybody likes SingStar as much as this guy; not after this. If you do like SingStar at least as half as him (who shall remain nameless) we have some great news for you. SingStar received a global patch today that brings some features that our Europeans brethren already had and then some.
Speaking with Capcom this week, Eurogamer have confirmed that, though a demo of up and coming action-swinger Bionic Commando will grace XBL in the coming weeks, there are “no plans” for a PS3 version.
Considering the amount of love Capcom have been showing the PS3 over the last few months, this decision has taken us a little by surprise.
We’re back with the second part in our two part Games Database “catching up” series. You’ve probably heard of most of the following games scheduled to hit the PS3 over the next year or so.
Then again, there are probably a few titles that will be a complete surprise (they were to us at least).
Sony plans to shift their focus on the casual market according to SCEA hardware marketing boss John Koller.
Speaking to VG247, he highlighted that they believe they have â€œcaptured the hardcoreâ€ market for the PS3.
Popular rhythm games such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band have already tapped into that lucrative money-printing vein by making new songs available to the masses on a weekly basis.
After all, now that all the …
Winner of many Game of the Year awards, it’s no surprise that the Fallout series will continue on in the hearts and minds of gamers for years to come with more sequels.
We’re not complaining of course as the last game was a bold step (despite its quirks) and we’re looking forward to more post-apocalyptic adventures in the Fallout universe.
Announced today: Fallout: New Vegas.
The Edinburgh Interactive Festival has today announced that early-bird rates are now available for delegate passes for this yearâ€™s Festival.

Throughout April, we’ve been running our big Spring Competition for everyone who followed us on Twitter and ‘tweeted’ a particular phrase.
Now, the time has come to announce the winner of this impressive bounty…
we were doing the rounds and came across this trailer for the upcoming game, due for release at the tail-end of 2010. Not only that, but there are even some new screen shots available. So how is the game coming along?
If your idea of a great night out (or in for that matter) is watching two guys beat the living crap out of each other in a weirdly shaped cage that neither can escape from, then you already know that UFC 2009 Undisputed is out next month.
In preparation for this onslaught of triangle holds, rear naked chokes, kimuras, arm-bars and other techniques that hurt as bad as they sound, THQ will be releasing a demo of the game on the PSN on April 23rd.
It’s that time of the week once again where we delve into the tuneful tweets floating about the interwebs.
Brodiesan is a fan of BZB, the new chat feature censorship gets… weird and we praise the lord of sensible currency conversion. Confused? So were we for a while…
Capcom has reached a landmark deal with the Planet Express delivery company. This deal will enable the North American based online Capcom Store to ship outside North America. Interplanetary shipping is still being negotiated.
We’re all about the Japanese RPG trailers this week.
Although, admittedly, this one surfaced a few days ago, we just didn’t get the chance to bring it to your attention with all the other exciting news that hit this week – not to mention some new betas that have been sucking our time away.
Better late than never of course and, as recompense for our tardiness, we’ve decided to shed some English light on a very Japanese affair by translating some of the text within the sneak peek.
Virtua Tennis 2009 is not your average tennis game. Sure you have your tennis pros, real life stadiums, single player, offline and online multi player, tournament and career modes.
