Renegade Ops media: explosions galore

Renegade Ops was announced back in March, a downloadable vehicular shooter "all about driving or flying around blowing stuff up while playing with your friends" from the maker of Just Cause 2.

Starhawk announced as Warhawk 'spiritual successor'

Starhawk announced as Warhawk 'spiritual successor'

Ever since Lightbox Interactive was founded by veterans of Warhawk developer Incognito, it's been rumoured that the studio was working on a follow-up to the walking-driving-flying multiplayer PS3 shooter. Today that became official, as Starhawk was unveiled as its "spiritual successor."

Starhawk promises "epic 32 player online battles" on foot, in vehicles, or in air, much like Warhawk. Players will be able to customise the battlefield with a feature called 'Build & Battle,' instantly dropping turrets, bunkers, walls, towers and other structures down from orbit. They're all destructible, of course. Read more »

Star Wars: The Old Republic lore galore

Star Wars: The Old Republic lore galore

Lore--love it or hate it, you've got to loathe the way writing in video games is damaged by an obsession with trifling and insignificant details. Still, some people love poring over it, a group which happens to overlap quite heavily with Star Wars fans. In light of this, the unveiling of an in-game lore encyclopaedia for Star Wars: The Old Republic is perhaps no great surprise.

Mass Effect 3 screenshots splash down

The first pair of Mass Effect 3 screenshots have been set free to roam the Cybernet as they please, giving a fair look at the kind of pretty pictures we can expect from the final chapter of BioWare's sci-fi RPG trilogy.

The screenshots show some boring-looking bloke we can only presume is an acquaintance of Jane Shepard duking it out with--and this is a story spoiler you might not guess by looking at the pictures, so if you don't want to read spoilers, stop reading now--Cerberus forces on the Salarian homeworld.
