To quote: A lot of us around here are big fans of Top Gear, the wildly popular and Emmy award-winning BBC show that features a group of men doing exciting, interesting and potentially dangerous test drives of cars in different environments.

173w ago - Virtual Air Guitar Company CEO Teemu Maki-Patola has shared news today that Kung-Fu LIVE is coming to PAX Prime alongside a new PS3 trailer debut.
To quote: The trailer gives PlayStation owners a taste of the epic multiplayer opportunities to pick up a controller and fight a player on-screen. It also adds insight into just how far you can take your costume ideas in Kung-Fu LIVE.
Working on the game this summer has been a non-stop fight to the finish. We've been balancing the physics on all of the interactive items in the new environments and everything is coming along smoothly.
We're spending a ton of time on the soon-to-be-revealed boss battles and on tuning the difficulty levels of different in-game enemies. As a big first step for motion-based gaming, the hard difficulty level will actually be challenging your fighting skills to the max.
As for multiplayer, it's been one of the most fun things to test and tweak in the office. You can see the idea in the trailer with the ninja fighting the bald dude on the left and the blond guy on the right (yours truly). That's just a taste of what you can do in this game.
It can even be expanded to four players using DualShock 3 controllers against one fighter playing...
177w ago - A new Assassin's Creed trailer has been released by Ubisoft which reveals it will hit Russia in this comics debut.
This trailer heavily suggests that the next set in the Assassin's Creed universe will be set in Russia surrounding the events of "the late Bicom explosion."
In the trailer, you hear the narrator explain that there is nothing left to find in the area, and that people are looking for some meteor. He explains that only he knows the truth and that "the ghosts of all the men he's killed will never let him forget it."
What's weird about this trailer however, is that it is not for a game, but for a comic book mini-series set to debut in the fall of 2010.
Ubisoft has confirmed that this will be a topic to be covered in their press conference by its Comic-Con panel on Thursday, July 22.
