The British Gaming Blog has new screenshots of Starfox Command for the Nintendo DS. The game is looking very promising despite the reservations on the British Gaming Blog about the explosion graphics. Will be interesting to see how playable this game is since I loved the N64 Star fox game but haven’t been so keen on the other ones.
More rumours surrounding a Nintendo console. This time it’s being suggested that there may be an RPG creator being developed for the Nintendo DS. You can see the original source of the rumour (with a little more info) over at Go Nintendo. Game creation tools are cool (at least in my mind) and this sort of thing could become very […]
The Dragon Shoot ’em Up (Shmup sounds too much like shmuck for me) competition has now ended over at Shmup-dev.com Previously they ran a competition for Horizontal Shoot ’em Ups which was rather successful (possibly due to the wonderful prize sponsorship from sites like “Binary Sun – free games for everyone”.

Warren is the man behind the classic game series Deus Ex, System Shock and Thief. I mean, it gets down to what your goals are. If you’re a surgeon, you want […]
Small, sleek and sexy. No I`m not talking about the Sony PSP but rather the new Nintendo DS Lite. As one of the few people who actually appreciated the retro look of the original DS I was a little apprehensive about whether or not to actually go and buy what I suspected was just a simple facelift but let me […]
Ok – I’m biased – but Miniclip.com has won a Webby award for the people choice website in the gaming category. Not particularly big news, at least for people who don’t work at Miniclip, but I get to go to New York for the awards ceremony so “yay for me”!

As with all Ubisoft games it’s visually stunning – I went for the GameCube version and it has to be one of the prettiest games on the console. The water and fire effects in particular are very cool. In gameplay terms it doesn’t disappoint […]
