But since then we have heard very little about the game, and it has been concluded by pundits that it has gone multiplatform.
After our meaty hands-on, we were really looking forward to hearing what you guys thought of the new Aliens Vs. Predator game.

Starting today, Trine will be available at a reduced price. Woot!

American news site ‘Sunsentinel’ has run with a very catchy story called “Xbox a sex box?”. The main theme of their article is that online gaming has become the latest way for sexual predators to get at kids. Is this an over reaction, or genuine concern?
George Fornay, president of Sony Computer Entertainment France has disclosed to Gamekyo that EyePet 2 is in production and that it is hoped it will be hitting shelves this year.
How it will differ from the first game is unknown at this point, but it is entirely likely that it will produce the same “aww, he’s so cute!” reactions like the first game did.
Capcom have announced DLC for their January game, Dark Void.

Whether we like it or not, downloadable content is now a major part of the videogame industry, and it won’t be going away any time soon.

Three examples would be the games listed below; I’m a big fan of all of them, but regrettably they are also all examples of how NOT to do DLC.
