In gaming there are a few big families, and the EA family is certainly one of the biggest. So it's fitting that they head up the interactive debut of another "family"-oriented entertainment franchise: The Godfather. We've got an armload of new screens hot from EA, so check them out here.

BBC World News has reported that Sony will be letting go of 10,000 employees within the next three years, to be completed by 2008. It's always good to remember that of the three major console players, Sony is the only one that's attempting to recover from a series of massive fiscal disappointments. While it controls the current generation of home consoles with the PS2, Sony's stock has dropped nearly 2/3rds of its value in the last five years, and loses or breaks even on nearly every division other than games and movies. Fans that are worried that Nintendo might be the underdog in the next round of console wars might do better to worry about Sony's ability to withstand a long-term war.

Chris Kohler, contributor to Wired Magazine, had a chance to take Nintendo's Revolution for a run while he was at the Tokyo Game Show, and he's opened himself to questions. He's generously started a thread over on the Gaming-Age forums where he offers to answer people's requests for information. While the questions are not always great, Chris's responses are very informative, including discussing Metroid and how it felt on the controller. We personally don't recommend reading every post on the forum, but we do recommend that you scan down the page looking for every post by Kobun Heat, which is Chris Kohler's handle. That's where the goodies are.

Earth 2160 is the sequel to the cult hit Earth series, developed by Reality Pump Games. Midway has picked it up, and will publish the title in the US in November for PC. This is more than a traditional real-time strategy game, and with a laundry list of features, Earth 2160 looks to be one for strategy fans to keep an eye on. Check out the latest screens here.

Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure has already been drawing fire for encouraging graffiti. We're sure parents and squares everywhere will rise up in protest of this latest affront on the sterile safety environment they try to build around the youth. But as for us, we're going to be practicing our can control and stealth action for when this bad boy hits stores in November.

Combining two demo release announcements into one posting, we're happy to let you know that both Serious Sam II and Brothers in Arms: Earned in Blood demos are now available for download. Both of these titles are highly anticipated, and the demos should let us get a better idea of where they should land on our list of most desired things. Click the link for download locations.

One of the more interesting items shown at E3 2005 was an early build of Tactica Online. This massively multi-player title separates itself from the dozens of other online games in a number of ways, not the least of which is that it's a turn-based strategy game in the likes of Fallout, Jagged Alliance, or X-Com. From gameplay to business strategy (Tactica won't charge monthly fees) Tactica Online is trying to be something different. We've picked up a few screenshots of an early build, and it's looking pretty interesting.

According to postings flying around the web, World of Warcraft's recent expansion patch opened the world to a new plague: Corrupted Blood. The disease is contracted by fighting a new boss added to the game, and gamers have been passing it on to others in the WoW cities. Most of the NPCs have been affected and some servers are certain death for characters who cannot withstand constant repeated damage of up to 300 hit points. Amazing.

The GP2X is the ultra-open source successor to the GP32, which enjoys a cult following and a remarkably high level of development. The GP2X is a Linux-based handheld that can run virtually any Linux application, including hundreds of exisiting games. A flood of games is sure to be ported rapidly for this thing. And game developers looking for an easy way into a powerful system (2x200mhz processors, 64mb of system memory) will love the fact that the SDK is included in every box! Plus, this plays movies, reads books, plays music, views photos, etc. We wanna play with it!

game: Tringo
category: announced
Tringo is a combination of Tetris and Bingo. Yeah, that's weird enough. But the story of its creation is even more unusual: Kermitt Quirk, a player in Second Life, created Tringo in-game and sells it to other Second Lifers. Now Crave has picked it up to sell it to real-life gamers for GBA. This could be the perfect accompaniment to that cute new GB Micro. Read the official press relesae from Crave here.
