game: LoveChess: Age of Egypt
review | 02/14/06 | George Holomshek
Happy Valentine's Day, dear readers. From deep within the GF! Office of Love and Videogames, we are pleased to bring you George's latest research, a review of LoveChess: Age of Egypt, the sequel to Dutch developer Artmunk's LoveChess: The Greek Era. The multiplayer here is unlikely to inspire extended sessions of sultry romance, but it's at least a brief diversion from watching Skinamax while playing Fritz 9. Get the full story here.
And be warned: George's review is remarkably clean, but LoveChess features depictions of sex, and the screenshots are most likely not safe for work. (Unless you work at Artmunk.)
game: Age of Empires: Age of Kings
news | 02/14/06 | Chris Martin
One of the most beloved strategy games of all time makes its way to the Nintendo DS. Ensemble Studios' juggernaut PC series Age of Empires has been a long time coming, and promises to prove once and for all the value of that touch screen. While Age of Kings has obviously been modified to fit the requirements of gaming on the go, the addition of wireless multiplayer and the ability to carry the game with you anywhere should be enough to get any Age of Empires fans interested in the potential. Official confirmation has gone out: Age of Kings has shipped.

news | 02/04/06 | Shawn Rider
Age of Conan - Hyborian Adventures has been generating some good interest from gamers, and with a cool franchise that definitely lends itself to action RPG gameplay, and some unique online components, Conan could be a very popular title.

game: Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code
news | 02/01/06 | Shawn Rider
Sony Online Entertainment sends word that Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code has gone gold and is on-target for a March 13 release date. That's almost exactly a year after the launch of the PSP and the first in the Untold Legends series. The first time out, Untold Legends was good, but a bit boneheaded and low on the charisma points. This time out, SOE has taken great pains to make Warrior's Code more appealing on virtually every level, plus it now features true online multiplayer. Get more on Warrior's Code as well as some spiffy new screens right here.

Namco and Bandai have merged their companies, and the resulting reorganization has given birth to Namco Networks, a new company dedicated to mobile gaming. GF! got the chance to speak with Scott Rubin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Namco Networks in North America.

game: Nintendo DS
news | 01/29/06 | George Holomshek
Nintendo has a history of redesigning and refining technology every couple of years. So it was just a matter of time before big N decided to redesign the Nintendo DS (and don't be surprised to see another redesign in two years, but that's just our prediction). After a bit of he-said/she-said melodrama, Nintendo has released concrete details about the new Nintendo DS Lite, which is exactly like a Nintendo DS except smaller and cuter. George has nailed down the details here, including the nasty rumors that the smaller size has come at a sacrifice to GBA compatability. Get the full story here.

It's eight minutes of high-quality podcasting goodness, so dig in, gamers!

Sega is unloading on the Xbox 360 with both Full Auto and Chromehounds coming out in the coming weeks. Chromehounds is based on an alternate Cold War history that places you in charge of a big, destructive robot fighting for one of three factions. Developed by Armored Core veterans, From Software, Chromehounds has the pedigree to be a very good game. The screens look gorgeous, and we are excited to get our hands on a playable version of this one. Get the details here.
game: Full Auto
news | 01/27/06 | Shawn Rider
Sega sends word that Full Auto has officially gone gold. This announcement coincides with the release of a bunch of new screens, which we're featuring here, and an Xbox Live demo, which we've downloaded and raged through. The verdict is still out on this one-- the demo is a bit skimpy, and we haven't gotten a lot of time with it yet. In the meantime, check out these new screens and get the details on this chaotic action racer in our recent preview. All of which lies behind this link.

Though we haven't seen much of the Star Trek franchise in the game industry since the release of Elite Force II a little while back, that doesn't mean that the series isn't still destined for further greatness. Bethesda Softworks, makers of Elder Scrolls and one of the most talented developers in the industry today, has purchased the right to make games based on the Star Trek franchise. They've announced two games, including one title for the Xbox 360, and another for both the Nintendo DS and the PSP. Though they haven't announced anything, they've also purchased the rights to create games for the PC based on the Star Trek IP.

Meridian4 has been having a good new year. They've been picking up games left and right, and the titles just keep looking better and better. These are the kinds of games that I'd love to see downloadable via Xbox Live, and that you can download and have a great time with on your laptop. That's not to say that they're low-fi, but they're not exactly cutting edge, either. Which can be fun. Their latest announcement is about Shadowgrounds, a sci-fi action title that offers a fresh take on old-school 3rd person shooters. It looks like Ikari Warriors meets Aliens.
news | 01/16/06 | Shawn Rider
As reported by GameDaily Biz, NPD Funworld calculates the videogame industry's take last year at around $10.5 billion. It looks like games have reached a major milestone, and that is thanks to some (possibly) surprising trends in 2005: portable gaming and female gamers. Sure, the Xbox 360 launch was a major boost to the industry in Q4, but the success of the industry in a highly transitional year (new console launches are never great for software sales) is attributed to handheld gaming and female gamers. Get more on this story right here.

George has the details in this News blurb.
