"Leafmore high school is no ordinary school – at least, not once you head into the basement. Kenny Matthews finds this out after chasing somebody down to the basement and finds himself surrounded by cages with some syringes poking around the place. Not only that, but there are some people in there who seem to be mentally scarred, and monsters in the darkness. Just as he's about to escape, the door shuts, trapping Kenny in the basement with the monsters. Kenny's girlfriend and sister notice tha..."
"The incredible Bishoujo statues from Kotobukiya have brought you everything from superheroines to Tekken fighters, and now the long-awaited line of Street Fighter members is finally set to come to Europe.

"Surely set to become one of the most highly sought after pieces of merchandise based on Valve’s enviable videogame franchises, today sees the release of the 1/4 scale Gordon Freeman statue. With his famous crowbar in one hand, and antlion-attracting Bugbait in the other, Gordon Freeman walks through the ruins of City 17, gazing out on a decimated world and wondering how to prevent the Combine from stripping it for parts."
"Phillips has launched a new advertising campaign clearly aimed at children of the 1980s. Aping the hugely popular OutRun and featuring an aesthetic that uses the same sense of self-referential humour as seen in the commendably inventive Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, the advertising campaign offers gamers the chance to create their own music video simply by playing a videogame."
"The first issue of a three-part comic book mini series is now available at UK retail, as Halo Initiation makes its official debut. The opening of the story of how Commander Sarah Palmer became a Spartan-IV, Halo Initiation leads directly into the exciting new mobile videogame from 343 Industries, Halo: Spartan Assault."
"“Within the Keep, you’ll be able to customize as much or as little about the world of Thedas as you wish,” states the official release from Executive Producer Mike Darrah. “Then you’ll be able to import your saved world state into DAI at the start of a new game. Have you lost or corrupted your save files? No problem — remake your world state on the Keep, and preserve it for the future.

IGN are celebrating the recent announcement of the multiplayer details of Call of Duty: Ghosts, with a superb video which takes us back through a decade in which Call of Duty has been one of the most popular series, if not the most popular game series. Relive your favourite Call of Duty moments with this brilliant video.
"Releases this week include a Call Of Duty wannabe, a HD remake of a 90′s classic, an unacceptably hard platformer and a cute baby eating rice. With the next seven days being so light on releases, it feels like the middle of summer… oh wait it is. Pikmin 3 may just be the cream of the crop from this bunch, although the Superfrog HD remake probably has me more excited than I should be."
"And there’s a reason why they are considered bad: the game is rushed to tie-in to the movies release or cash-in on a popular franchise, the studio then slaps together a makeshift barebones game to cash in, no one cares about quality but hopes to sell enough copies before the reviews comes out, and so on."
"Although series such as Alone in the Dark and Resident Evil helped to reignite interest in the genre, horror games have been around in one form or another since video gaming first began.
With upcoming titles like Outlast, Daylight and The Evil Within in the pipeline, it's clear that our appetite for scares hasn't been diminished over the years either, so with that in mind we've compiled our list of the 12 scariest games ever made.
Did any of these frightfests send you scurrying for safe..."
"Replaying Grand Theft Auto III more than a decade after release is like revisiting the town I grew up in. Familiar sights and locations keep popping up, the settings of many past adventures…
The first back alley hideout, with its single garage, complimentary baseball bat and squeaky front door. The car crusher that’s at the edge of town, down a dirt track. The car showroom containing a Banshee sports car that’s just asking to be liberated."
"Games consoles aren't exactly famous for having great names. The PlayStation sounds like something either an 8 year old would come up with. Xbox was pretty much designed to include as many x's as possible because x stands for EXTREME!!! As for the Wii, anyone who defended that name when it was revealed is so far into fanboy world they must actually have a guy called Mario as their plumber."
