Excuse me i'll just move these out of your way!

  • Phantasy Star Universe

  • Pgr3 photorealism

  • Prey Trailer (xbox360)

  • Prey Website

  • Project Zero3 (ps2) screens
  • Soul Calibur Movie Website launched

    But nothing to see as yet bar the movie like title intro screen, which is a pity. Originally announced back back in the stone ages and set for release sometime 2007. And that's all we know, for the moment. The Elderly Gamer bringing you trivial and pretty useless information first.

    2004 preview

    Final Fight Streetwise (xbox, ps2) website, preview, screens

    Only one (uncomplimentary) review on Metacritic, nothing definite to go on yet (still trying to figure how game informer got the sneak on IGN and Gamespot, however like 24 the game, the answers to purchase or not may lie in the previews on gamespot and IGN
    But save yourself for a visit to the Official website, where someones done a nice job on buddy icons and wallpaper. Bugs the life out of me when a game releases before a decent review, it's also pretty indicative of something, I hope this is not the case here.

    24: The Game, The Website, The Wallpaper, The Preview

    On your store shelf this weekend comes this puzzle. Do you buy or not? Metacritic have only two reviews available from Edge magazine and Play Magazine, result? well it's neither a hit or a miss. Best idea would be to bookmark the page, then
    read the preview on IGN, (don't forget the overkill 245 images and 35 videos on site)
    next up a quick gander at gamespot's experience.
    Next visit the website and play the intro mini game, the interogation inner game and take a gander at what passes for wallpaper at 20th century fox. No doubt like me you still won't be able to make up your mind.

    Battlefield 2 xbox360 new screens, movie

    From the illustrious ZTgamedomain 18 new xbox360 screenshots and one spanking new trailer. Yummy! though I'm still peeved I can't play the xbox version on my 360. Strange that the original xbox game wasn't compatibleized (?) earlier given it was released almost in sync with the 360. Surely EA weren't intending on capitalizing on those unfortunate gamers who now need to buy the (expletive deleted) game again albeit with updated visuals. Could someone sort it please?. Naively yours, the Elderly Gamer.

    Rumble Roses Fan art

    Amazing what a poser kit and oodles of talent can produce. While Rumble Roses XX rules the roost on gamers buzzlists, the original still maintains a large fanbase and for obvious reasons. More exceptional high quality from www.roses.tenkokutenshi.com

    3d Model #8 Faye Valentine

    Cowboy Bebop became one of the biggest adult anime series ever in the United States. Helping that popularity was Faye Valentine. Described as confident, audacious and independent, she is prone to heavy gambling but a consumate professional bounty hunter. We'll let Wikipedia take over

    "Faye awoke from her cryogenic sleep with total amnesia in a mysterious world that she didn't understand, surrounded by people who were all-too-willing to take advantage of her naïveté, contributing to the hardening of her personality. The surname "Valentine" was merely a name given to her by the doctor that awoke her; the circumstances of her accident, her previous life, and even her real name all remain a mystery, and are only gradually revealed as the series progresses. It has been hinted that she came from Singapore on Earth, and was the daughter of a very wealthy family, as the city's famous Merlion Statue features prominently in scenes of her childhood, and that memories and a film from her childhood showed her living in a large mansion."

Whether gamestop.com are right that the game will be released in October for the Ps3 is more doubtful.

    Eurogamer TV in your sittingroom

    Out of it's Beta stage and into our living rooms (or wherever your pc lives) comes Eurogamer TV. Why wait for your content on the xbox360 maketplace (repressed giggle) when you can see the newest trailers as they arrive the Eurogamer office. Why indeed. Take a look at the videos available on their contents page, read what happy bunnies they are now that they've launched their service

    And the following tasters in case you've no interest in travelling around the net.

    Elder scrolls oblivion, and making of

    Ghost Recon Advanced warfighter

    Yep seems like Eurogamer are after some of IGN's 2 million hits a day.

    Trapt (ps2) Review

    Protect your castle by luring your enemies into your booby-trapped world in this trap-action game. You'll play as Princess Allura, who with her cunning ways and brilliant series' of traps will always get what she wants, even if blood and body-parts are shed along the way.

    Isn't exactly what we may have been waiting for, take a look at the Eurogamer Review. Or visit the Official game page (Japanese), for some worthwhile wallpaper. Have a peek at some gameplay movies and screenshots on gamespot.

    Do not be confused by the rock band of the same name, or indeed the IGN review of their music, which from what i've listened to is a cut above the average. The game is also available on import under the title Kagero II and billed as the fourth(?) instalment of the Kagero deception series. IGN (more screenshots) have kindly informed us that the game is also known as Trapt: code Kagero, Kagero 2: Dark Illusion. But i'm still confused, though that may be the blood pressure tablets.

    $2,000 for Revolution Development Kit

    First the controller, now the low entry price ($2,000) for Revolution Development kits. And with more than 1,000 kits already shipped, this is good news for mr. gamer. Why? think of it the low entry price, means more development teams, means more game diversity, means greater choices when I go to the store to pick up my latest RPG, FPS, RTS. Not good enough? then read the following quote from the IGN article:

    "Every studio insider we queried said that they believed Revolution could launch for under $200, and possibly as low as $150 - a figure that would amazingly put Nintendo's new console at a price point hundreds of dollars cheaper than any competitor. Nintendo itself has not yet commented on a Revolution price point, except to confirm that it would sell for less than $299."

    Just what's in the water over at the Nintendo offices? cause I'd like some. Story IGN
