Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions will get its amazing, noir web-slinging on this September. The game’s story, written by Marvel’s Dan Slott, finds four different wall-crawlers working across parallel universes to put together the Tablet of Order and Chaos, which sounds like a rejected item name from the Zelda universe. The latest issue of GamePro has some [...]
You know, it’s kind of depressingly easy to win nerds over. Take, for instance, the debut trailer for Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions just after the break. With just a few moving images of “noir” Spider-Man in action, our mild curiosity about the game from the company that most recently ported Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen to [...]

Due out this spring for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, Blur is a like Project Gotham Racing meets Mario Kart… if they two had a baby in the 70s. And we’re giving out spots for the March 8 beta for the flashy racer right here, right now. But first, a couple of very important [...]

I am daring to be excited by Transformers: War For Cybertron. Why? Because I love any Transformers not involving Michael Bay, and I especially love the War Within comic series. Which is kinda what this game is like! Though, sadly, not exactly like; as this artwork shows, cues have been taken from the fan-favourite prequel [...]
This first in a four-part series of animated Wolfenstein graphic novels from Activision tells the story of the original Wolfenstein 3D. Really out of date spoilers follow. It took me a moment to get my bearings while watching this first in the Wolfenstein animated graphic novel series. I had assumed that it was simply a [...]
Determined to deliver more than just another band game sequel, Neversoft gives Guitar Hero 5 a brand new look, innovative new features, and introduces more than 25 new artists to the rhythm game genre.
More than 25 new artists means that we’ll find at least 26 songs we’ve never played before included on the disc for Guitar Hero 5, which will feature master tracks from 85 of the “hottest bands of today and the biggest classic acts”. Such distinctions are of course open to opinion, but Activision lists Kings of Leon, The Rolling Stones, The White Stripes, Santana, Vampire Weekend, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, and Bob Dylan. All of those, plus you’ll be able to import all of your Guitar Hero World Tour tracks, because if you couldn’t there would be a riot.
Most of those names we already heard in Crecente’s story on Friday, which also discussed the ability to play any combination of instruments, the drop-in play, and the new Rockfest multiplayer mode.
Other new features include a new Guitar Hero Music Studio revamped for accessibility; Band Moments, in which groups are rewarded for performing special note groups together; and song challenges, which task players to perform songs in certain ways.
As for the new art style, I can’t say much for it with only two screenshots to go by. Judging from the screen at the top of this post, however, I’d say it’s certainly a nice deviation from what we’ve already seen.
