Genre: Third-Person Shooter
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Developer: EA Montreal
Release Date: Fall 2007

Army of Two's title serves a pair of purposes, as it not only pokes fun at the United States Army's "Army of One" slogan, but it also delivers the core concept behind the game. No matter how you play — be it offline or via Xbox Live — you will always have a partner, whether it's an AI companion or an actual human player.

Wii Preview - 'Boogie'

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under E3 - E3 2007 - July 11th

Boogie

Genre: Rhythm/Karaoke
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Developer: EA Montreal
Release Date: August 7, 2007

Boogie is not the most technical rhythm/dance game on the market, nor is it likely to be the most comprehensive karaoke experience, but the most important negative statement we can make after spending time with the game is that it is not, by any means, hardcore.

In other words, the game is very, very mainstream.

Which is fine, but many
