by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under Sony Gamers' Day - Sony Gamers' Day 2006

Set to a hardrocking soundtrack, players will annihilate alien chickens, mutant hillbillies, and homicidal clowns, in addition to tackling monster bosses, such as the enormous bearded lady and her cadre of deadly unicyclists.

CMC will also take full advantage of the PSP system’s network capabilities, delivering both local and internet games for up to eight players, allowing them to bash their way through the game cooperatively or to compete against each other in prize-laden death matches. CMC is a futuristic and brutal experience with a sarcastic sense of humor.

After being captured by an alien race, you struggle through their

Genre: Real-Time Strategy
Publisher: TBA

God is Pissed. And when God gets pissed, Satan gets cranky. And when Satan gets cranky, humans tend to die. So goes the premise of TKO's upcoming RTS, Heaven vs. Hell. Set in the not-so-distant future, God is finally fed up with his prized creation, man, abusing technology to mess with the fabric of creation and attempt to "play God" themselves.

PC Preview - 'ParaWorld'

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under E3 - Post - E3 2005

Genre : RTS
Publisher: TBA
Developer: Sunflowers
Release Date: Q1 2006

I was sold on ParaWorld almost from the word "go." A real-time strategy game from the German developer Sunflowers, it features, among other things, the ability to field an army of heavily-armored dinosaurs, several of which have siege engines or companies of archers strapped to their backs.

ParaWorld was about half-finished and unnamed at last year's E3. Now, it's about six months from completion, as the team tweaks the balance and completes its character animation. It's really more of an issue of their having a perfectionist streak than anything

NGC/PS2/Xbox Preview - 'Shadow the Hedgehog'

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under E3 - Post - E3 2005

Genre: 3D Action/Adventure
Developer: Sonic Team
Publisher: Sega
Release Date: November 2005

The day Sega gave a hedgehog a Desert Eagle was the day the world went crazy.

Even if Shadow was a supposed “evil anti-hero” version of Sega’s mascot, giving him a gun, not to mention featuring pictures and videos of him displaying one prominently, was a move on the company’s part that’s been given many words. “Bold,” “gutsy,” “crazy,” “nuts” and “blasphemy” have been just a few of them.

A lot of people, a lot of Sonic fans, fear and loathe this game, and have already written this off
