In the late '90s, gamers normally far too uncoordinated or scared to try skating themselves, were enraptured by Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. Players could take control of Tony Hawk and several other popular skaters, then take them through a handful of 90’s teen inspired maps.


I've never owned a Sony handheld, but WipeOut 2048 makes me want to join the club. The no-grav racer series has been rather quiet these past few years, its sole current-generation title (WipeOut HD) originally released as a PSN-only title. Fortunately, WipeOut seems to be speeding around the bend to make every other racer look like a virtual venture into snail-farming. 


For fans of BioWare's Mass Effect 3,the announcement of details is an event in itself, and one has been promised in next month's issue of Xbox World magazine. What might the Canadian giant have up its sleeve for one of the big games of 2011?


Perhaps you're wondering what a video game character does in their private time. Maybe you're curious about what sort of girls they'd like to date.

Not only will the game be the first true Online RPG in the series, but it will also have a version released for both the Wii and Wii U. Both had been rumored, but this is the first official confirmation of these facts. More details after the jump.


It's hard to not be curious about Beyond the Labyrinth. Even with in-game cutscenes it's almost impossible to figure out just what it is. It's gorgeous, both visually and audibly, but beyond that is anyone's guess. The game's new trailer, viewable below, doesn't tell us much new. It feature's a young girl, and implies that the game is told through a first-person camera view. Ultimately, though, the trailer raises more questions than answers.


The growth of Black Rock Shooter is truly a marvel to watch. It started off as a piece of art by Huke of Supercell, then had a brief music video made set to some Vocaloid music. Even later, a fifty minute animated feature was built around the character, followed by a PSP game. Now NIS, the company responsible for Disgaea and a number of other quirky, bizarre RPGs, is bringing the Black Rock Shooter game stateside. Fans of the BRS franchise couldn't be happier.


Final Fantasy may be the best known and most beloved Japanese RPG series out there. It certainly seems to be the first name to come to mind when people consider the genre.

Both ICO and Shadow of the Colossus are games that were critical hits on release and have since developed cult followings. Many praised the games for the ways in which they sought to evoke certain feelings in those who played them and drew parallels to older adventure games. It's not uncommon for these two PS2 titles to show up at the top of great games lists, either. The games were already great, and it looks like the HD versions, available on the PS3 later this year, are even better. Two new trailers for them are available below.
