For fighting game fans, you'll want to check out the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection. Experience the original trilogy in an entirely new light featuring online play, leaderboards, and trophies.

300°
173w ago - Sega Digital Campaigns Manager Mike Kebby has posted up some new screens and details on their upcoming PS3 title House Of The Dead: Overkill Extended Cut featuring creeping flesh and more below!

To quote: Not content with simply revealing the first exclusive level for the PS3 release of [Register or Login to view links], I'm back to give you the scoop on the second one too.

Set in the cosy confines of an abattoir taken over by a meaty disease of sorts, Creeping Flesh delivers you more of the additional awesome content we've lovingly added to the extended, and definitive, edition of OVERKILL.

We pick up the story with Varla and Candy again, and this time circumstances lead them to the local abattoir. I'm not going to spoil any of the story and the detail around what leads them there, but let's just say it's the standard House of the Dead fare; there are guns, motives for revenge and mutants galore, all wrapped up with the usual Grindhouse styling.

As you can see from the above image, there is something of a meaty infestation starting to take hold inside the building, and internally we've affectionately referred to this as the meat wall (there is also a meat tunnel later in the level,...

Sony Details Combat Wings on PS3 with PlayStation Move Support

173w ago - Today Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared details on the upcoming PS3 title Combat Wings- complete with PlayStation Move support below!

To quote: Combat Wings: The Great Battles of WWII lands on PS3 this November with aerial combat campaigns set amidst the bloodiest air battles of World War II.

Not long ago, I tried out a pre-release version of the game under the watchful eye of Creative Director [Register or Login to view links], focusing on the game's use of the PlayStation Move motion controller.

Before I grabbed the stick for a test flight, I was curious what made Majewski want to support PlayStation Move in the first place – WWII air combat isn't exactly a genre that leaps into my mind when I ponder the potential of motion-controlled gaming.

"Move makes this game better," Majewski said with conviction. "It's a much more natural form of steering than using an analog stick and it makes a huge difference to the gameplay.
