Armored Core is a tricky series: Gamers typically love it or hate it. Stat-hounds and customization freaks really dig the hardcore gearhead approach to battle bots, while the rest of us stick to more action-oriented titles for our big mech enjoyment. Nonetheless, the first Armored Core game is out for the PSP. Armored Core: Formula Front-- Extreme Battle is a fan-targeted title, geared towards current fans of the Armored Core series and fairly inaccessible for newcomers. Matt James has the rundown.

One of the great things about Half-Life 2 was the way it scaled to different levels of machine. On a high-end PC it was amazingly beautiful, and on a more regular rig it was still very enjoyable. So you'd think that the Xbox port of Half-Life 2 would be pretty much awesome: At least as good as the mid-range PC experience. And, for the most part, you'd be right, as long as "awesome" includes a gazillion load screens and the stickiest doorways we've seen in ages. How does it all turn out? Check Shawn's review for the details.

What does a music and video mixing peripheral have to do with videogames? Not much. But the StikAx sure is fun. The bizarre mixing peripheral feels like an instrument, and the powerful editing software would be a great value even without the actual StikAx. Embrace the media lifestyle convergence and add the StikAx to your list of things to check out in the new year. It might make you the next big WoW machinimaker! Shawn's got a complete review here.

Midway Arcade Treasures: Extended Play is a collection of 21 classic games for PSP. Featuring arcade perfect ports of Spy Hunter, Sinistar, Defender, Paperboy and 720, there are also over a dozen other classic games which have been enhanced to support WiFi multiplayer. These include classics like Gauntlet, Joust and Rampage, but also the cult classics Mortal Kombat I, II, and III. It's a UMD full of nostalgia for some gamers, and a lot like what they've already got on their memory sticks for others. Get the full review here.

Crave has delivered a really great pinball collection to the PSP. Pinball Hall of Fame: The Gottlieb Collection features over a dozen classic Gottlieb pinball tables and arcade miscellany, all simulated in loving detail. This is a portable gaming pinball fan's dream come true, and it even allows you to serve out pinball games wirelessly to other PSPs. That means wireless multiplayer for all from a single UMD. If you like the pinball action, check this one out.

game: GelTabz
GelTabz are an unlikely must-have enhancement. They are so incredibly simple they'll have you wondering why more game controllers don't make use of their innovative design. But they are so effective that once you give them a shot, you won't want to play without them. As natural a fit as a baseball glove and a baseball bat, GelTabz are definitely worth a closer look.

EA Sports' FIFA franchise is often the only thing going in the US, and that's not necessarily a good thing. Matt James took a close look at FIFA 06: Road to FIFA World Cup, the Xbox 360 launch incarnation of the FIFA series, and found that it's probably not worth the upgrade. The visuals are real purty, but the rest of the game just isn't up to par. It's too tough for newbs to pick it up, and it lacks features and roster that the current-gen versions have. Get the full story here.

An interesting hybrid of real-time and turn-based strategy play, Cuban Missile Crisis: The Aftermath does its best to set itself apart from the masses of other strategy games. Set in a hypothetical alternate history that posits the Cuban Missile Crisis led to catastrophic nuclear war, the game has a lot going for it: Optional missions, nuclear wastelands, several different campaigns based on different superpowers. There is a lot to like here, but can Cuban Missile Crisis: The Aftermath stand out among the faceless masses of hardcore war games? George has the review.

game: NBA 2K6
In the battle of Xbox 360 launch titles, two contenders went head-to-head on the hardwood: NBA Live 06 and NBA 2K6. Chris Martin already reported on NBA Live's disappointing performance, but left us dangling on NBA 2K6's courtside prowess. So how does the 2K Sports title fare against behemoth EA's basketball baby? Rather well. Featuring a lot more material than NBA Live, and prettier graphics, NBA 2K6 is the basketball title to pick up. Check the review for the details.

Zoo Tycoon 2 managed to keep a number of people up late into the night in its original form, and now there's an expansion to help add hours to the fun. Microsoft's new expansion gives you things like sky trams, official Jeep tours, and a gun-less FPS element, but is there really anything new here? We take some time to run through Zoo Tycoon's new elements to see if there's enough depth here to justify a $30 purchase.
