Call of Duty: Black Ops will have, at least, 4 player co-op.

Dragon Ball Raging Blast is gonna be getting a sequel.

No…just…no MegaMan Online, please. Unless we get some Legends storyline.

This is a collector’s edition you’d have to buy.

No words can describe the game Privates.

More EA Sports MMA fighters on the roster.

Playing Skate 3? If so, maybe you’d enjoy a cheat to unlock Issac from Dead Space.

Eat up the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 info.

New Modern Warfare 2 maps will be out June 3rd. As the last one, 5 maps, 2 old, 3 new.

Bulletstorm should be something familiar but still new.

Preorder Two Worlds 2 and get some nice stuff.

Er…really? Those kinds of Call of Duty games?

Speaking of Call of Duty, what was Call of Duty: Devil's Brigade?

You probably won't be seeing celebrities in Guitar Hero anymore.

More and more Gears of War 3 details.

First Alan Wake DLC will come in July .

Man vs. Robots? That’s the new Mass Effect 2 DLC!

Natal should be big.

Even I like the Fable 3 box art.

Words can’t even describe this controller

If anyone doubted, Call of Duty: Black Ops is also coming to the Wii.

More Pokemon from Pokemon Black and White have been revealed.

Another Call of Duty developer?

Disney Interactive Studios isn’t recession-proof either.

Exactly, they should have stopped after Gold/Silver. I tried playing Sapphire, but I just couldn't be bothered to finish even though I loved the previous games.

Ruby/Sapphire sucked, but Diamond and Platinum weren't that bad.
