Last week saw the 2006 San Diego Comic Con, the biggest event for comic book fans in the USA, and an annual mecca for comic freaks and comic geeks from all over the world. In other words, it's our kind of place, and don't think for a minute that there's a big distance between comics and videogames. We sent our representative comics and games geek, Monica, to cover the show floor, and the first thing she brought back was first-hand coverage of the Bungie and Marvel meeting to discuss the forthcoming Halo comic series, illustrated by different artists, including more Halo from legendy illustrator, Moebius. Get the full story here.
game: The Darkness
news | 07/21/06 | Chris Martin
THe Darkness, adapted from the cult comic book from TopCow, was all but nonexistent from E3 2006 excepting, maybe, a trailer we'd seen before. But never fear Darkness fans, because progress is being made and we've got the screens to prove it. Inside are three high-rez pics straight from 2K Games.
game: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
news | 07/12/06 | Chris Martin
True to their word, Bethesda isn't done with updating their magnum opus The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. The latest update is a "vile lair" for all you thieves, assassins, and rogues, and even if you're just plain evil. It's got all you could ever want to feed your bloodlust: evil shrines, evil minions, and even a pen of cattle to feed on. Bloodlust be damned. It might not have a coded fix for some of the bugs in the game, but you'll be surprised if it doesn't have one of the most coveted cures in all of Tamriel. If you thought the Wizard's Tower was cool, you're going to love this.
game: Ear Force X2
review | 06/29/06 | Shawn Rider
Turtle Beach brings their Xbox-targeted headphones to a whole new level of quality with the Ear Force X2 Wireless Xbox Headphones. The Ear Force X2 is a (mostly) wireless setup that works very nicely with your Xbox 360 console, providing high quality audio and voice chat in a audiophile quality package. And the X2 headphones deliver the goods for just under a hundred bucks, which makes them a natural choice. We can see why the MLG would license these as the "official" headphones of Major League Gaming.

The PlayStation 2 launch was legendary for beginning the "shortages" craze. After last year's Xbox 360 launch, all gamers should now realize that if they want a new console system on launch day, it will be a fight. Nintendo looks to be shipping enough systems to satisfy demand, but this year we're concerned again about Sony. With some retailers refusing to take PlayStation 3 preorders, a confusing multi-configuration release offering, and a spotted history of delays and adjustments, PS3 is headed for a rocky launch. We have some details about what to expect on launch day here.
game: Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis
review | 06/07/06 | Shawn Rider
Rockstar's latest title isn't a murder simulator or hardcore gangsta shooter. It's a pleasant game of Table Tennis, and it's really well-done. Rockstar Presents Table Tennis comes from their San Diego studio, well known for creating the Smuggler's Run and Midnight Club series. If Table Tennis sounds like a major change of speed, that's because it is. But when the results are so much fun, we're fine with switching gears. Get the full review here from Shawn.
game: Xbox 360
editorial | 06/06/06 | Matt James
Xbox Live's ability to record achievements adds an entirely new dimension to online gaming. Suddenly, everything you do matters, and achieving a high gamer score is like managing to break into the top ten at the local video arcade (if you lived in the '80s). In this article, we sit down with an Xbox 360 controller and a stack of games to find out the best ways to raise your gamer score with as little work as possible. Geometry Wars might be fun, but it's nearly a waste of time if you're interested in raising your stats. Madden 2006, though? It's a goldmine for even the unskilled footballer. And it's not the only one.

We're only 20 days from the release of the Prey Demo on PC and Xbox 360. That means you'll be able to see what the gaming media has been raving about since Prey made an unexpected appearance on the show floor at E3 2005. Combining traditional FPS elements with dynamic gravity, Spirit Power, and Portals, Prey adds up to one hell of a shooter. Joe Siegler from 3D Realms updates us on everything Prey and everything MultiPrey in the Prey Weekly Update. Shooter fans, read on!

With the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360, and the Wii on the market come November, how will Sony cope? Are they looking for an answer to Microsoft's Live Anywhere service, which will link Xbox 360 owners, PC owners, and mobile owners in a new and fresh way? Are they looking to clean up with their Blu-Ray high definition disc player? Or will their new tilt/sensor Dual un-Shock controller be able to propell Sony beyond Nintendo's Wii? Truly, there is a lot ahead of Sony. President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Phil Harrison has a lot to say about the PS3, Live Anywhere, and the Wii remote. And of course, he doesn't mind ripping the PC a new one while he's at it. Tough as nails, if there's only one thing you had to say about Phil its "he's got balls." Read on to find out why.
game: Dead Rising
preview | 05/28/06 | Chris Martin
While we've had our fill of space-age RPGs and the like, taking a tire iron to the face of a walking undead never becomes antiquated. Capcom's phenomenon Dead Rising is looking better than ever, with fixed framerate issues and polished, open-ended gameplay, not to mention the ability to smash a zombie with literally everything and anything you can get a hold of. It's "Shawn of the Dead" meets "Resident Evil" in Capcom's most promising IP since "Devil May Cry."
game: Halo 2
feature | 05/26/06 | Shawn Rider
Halo 2 has remained a favorite on Xbox Live even for Xbox 360 owners, and Bungie has continued to maintain a lively community website and roll out improvements. Inspired by a recent posting on the Bungie News blog, Shawn takes a look at the current state of Halo 2 cheating: Bridging, standby, boosting? What is this crazy talk? Welcome to the twisted world of Halo 2 cheating.
game: Superman Returns
preview | 05/20/06 | Matt James
Superman may be one of the top superheroes in the superheroing business, but in videogames he has a spotty record at best. However, EA and their Tiburon studio is set to return the Man of Steel to glory (and, coincidentally tie-in with the latest Superman film, which, you know, out to bode well, right?). With some definitely next-gen visuals, Superman looks pretty, but can he back up his sexy little spit curl with a solid game experience? Matt James takes a look at Superman returns, and manages to avoid making a single joke about Superman 64. Amazing! Get the full preview here.
game: Sonic The Hedgehog
preview | 05/19/06 | RJ Brooks
Both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Sonic contained the same features and levels. The difference between the games is where one would expect it to be-the graphics. However, the version with the best graphics is not the "powerhouse" PlayStation 3. Our man, Rob, runs down how the first next-gen Sonic title is coming along, and finds one of the most grievous examples of PS3 comparing unfavorably with the Xbox 360.
game: Saint's Row
preview | 05/19/06 | RJ Brooks
Saint's Row comes off as another GTA clone just trying to cash in on the current fads: Gangstas + Free Roaming Play = $$$. But for some reason, it has taken the interest of Mr. RJ Brooks here on the GF! Staff. What is it? The crazy customizable gangster looks? The street cred imported through story advisors with gang affiliations? Nah, it's just the sucker-punching civvies as you car-jack them. That's gotta be it. Get the full story about Saint's Row in Rob's preview.
preview | 05/19/06 | Blaine Krumpe
Ubisoft brings us another military-themed First Person Shooter, Haze, which there obviously aren't nearly enoug of these days... But Haze feels a bit different, too. Charged with some serious political satire, Haze gets you all tied up with Mantel Global's corporate mercenaries in the ongoing war for democracy. Expect plenty of drugged-up supersoldiers and some tricky ethical decisions, two things we'd like to see a lot more of in the FPS genre. Get Blaine's full preview here.
