The trailer does a nice job of showing off the game's environments and some beasties in the calmer first half, but then gets crazy in the second half with attacks in dark, confined spaces. Gotta love those! I predict that I'll be blindly wasting ammo by shooting in the dark most of the time. (Dale North)
From now through December 16, THQ is giving away a free digital PC copy of Metro 2033 for Steam for each member of the Metro Facebook page. (Dale North)
You're probably used to me gushing over SimCity by now, but here's more with this new multi-city demonstration that EA just released. You'll see an example of a casino city running at full steam, which makes me a bit jealous as that was my plan for my first city. Watching how easy it is to upgrade these casinos makes it hurt even more that we have to wait for this game. (Dale North)
I played it this past weekend and got to take on all eight of the World Warrior Masters (that's what I'm calling them.) Expect to take on Urien, Rolento, Dhalsim, Blanka, Ryu, C. Viper, Chun-Li, and Rose. You can expect more Street Fighter combatants in the same style as the retro Mega Man games too. (Hamza Aziz)
