Get The Bad, The Ugly, and the Sober Trailer off WP (140mb)

This game will be very enjoyable for gamers who like “Western” films (e.g. ‘The Good, The Bad and The Ugly’) or adventure games (e.g. ‘Three Skulls of the Toltecs’, ‘Another World’).

The main character is a farmer called Jack, a former accurate shooter. One day an injured Indian, being chased by Black Bill’s bandits, comes to his ranch. Jack manages to save his life, but in return gets his farm burned down by the bandits.

First announced back in May, LucasArts'original IP Fracture has been gaining hype for its unique emphasis on nonstop terrain deformation, as each weapon and absurdly powerful grenade in the game can reshape the very ground upon which you stand. Fracture will pit the Atlantic Alliance and Pacificans against each other in a bleak, war-torn vision of America in the year 2161.

The ability to raise and lower the earth will factor heavily into any mode of play, but the biggest concern is likely to be

PS3/X360 Preview - 'Army of Two'

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

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. This combination of shooting, action and constant cooperative play helps make Army of Two seem like the bastard child of

PSP Preview - 'Dead Head Fred'

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

Genre: Action/Platform
Publisher: D3Publisher of America
Developer: Vicious Cycle
Release Date: August 21, 2007

After a promising showing at last year’s E3 event, D3Publisher of America’s Dead Head Fred seemingly vanished from the scene. Thankfully, unlike its protagonist, Dead Head Fred has not been beheaded, nor has it lost the sharp-edged humor that made it stand out in the first place. Games often pick up notable voice actors to cover their various faults, but the addition of John C. McGinley (“Scrubs”) as the voice of private investigator Fred Neuman really seems to bring gravitas to a character

Genre: Rhythm
Publisher: Electronic Arts/MTV
Developer: Harmonix
Release Date: Holiday 2007

We've seen the future of awesome, and its name is Rock Band.

Harmonix had set up shop in a small room to the far left of the converted cafeteria at Electronic Arts' Los Angeles compound, isolated from the noise and spectacle of the dozens of other titles on display. How did we know where to find our first look at the multi-instrumental explosion of collaborative rhythm? There was a line outside the door — stretched 12 or more people deep at times.

It was like going to
