Jonesing for more chainsaw-gun action? Then check out the above video detailing the latest in Xbox's bloodiest exclusive. The good devs at People Can Fly are hoping to breath a little more life out of the meat-grindiest of 3rd person shooters with a unique tale starring the blonde, punching bag engineer Baird and his involvement with Kilo Squad. Also, it's a prequel taking place around after E-day but before Baird joins up with Marcus, Dom, and the rest.

As PCF takes over the reigns, they're injecting more than a little bit of their flavor to keep vertern players and newbies on their toes. With a somewhat arcade feeling to the traditional grim, methodical pacing of the first three, "Judgment" seems to have enough to want to merit an all new entry.

Once in a while a game developer says something that makes me want to rush to my console and try something out. That has happened during the still-ongoing "Gears of War 2" artificial intelligence post-mortem when Epic Games' Matt Tonks mentioned one way in which he thinks the first game still has an advantage: Despite the many AI improvements in the second Marcus Fenix action game, the grander scale of levels in "Gears of War 2" forced the designers to create more narrow funnels of enemy attacks -- "cover crawls," The result, said Tonks, was that the AI-controlled enemies sometimes didn't have as much room to demonstrate their full range of intelligent techniques. The first game is often better in that regard, he said: "The encounters were smaller and more open, so the encounters were more fluid than in in 'Gears of War 2.'"

When word broke that Capcom was incorporating a "Gears of War"-style control scheme into "Resident Evil 5," gamers rejoiced, but this week's "RE5" demo proves implementing only part of that system isn't enough; you need to go all the way, something "Dead Space" did and "RE5" doesn't. Read More...
