Tom Clancy's - HAWX - The New Benchmark

Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, announces the development of Tom Clancy’s HAWX (high-altitude warfare), an awe-inspiring game  HAWX_07-640that is primed to revolutionize the way players think about combat in the sky. Scheduled for release in Fall 2008, Tom Clancy’s HAWX turns consumers into elite pilots of the future. The game will appear on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and on Windows-based PC.

Developed by Ubisoft’s Bucharest studio, Tom Clancy’s HAWX delivers an intense and authentic aerial combat experience by fully leveraging the benefits of the next-generation platform. The story begins in the year 2012. As the era of the nation-state draws quickly to a close, the rules of warfare evolve even more rapidly. More and more nations become increasingly dependent on private military companies (PMCs), elite mercenaries with a lax view of the law. The Reykjavik Accords further legitimise their existence by authorizing their right to serve in every aspect of military operations. While the benefits of such PMCs are apparent, growing concerns surrounding giving them too much power begin to mount.

Tom Clancy’s HAWX is the first air combat game set in the world-renowned Tom Clancy’s video game universe. Cutting-edge technology, devastating firepower, and intense dogfights bestow this new title a deserving place in the prestigious Tom Clancy franchise. Soon, flying at Mach 3 becomes a right, not a privilege.

Spore - Coming soon in 2008

3318SPORpcSCRNsnap602 From the mind of Will Wright comes SPORE, a journey that takes you from the origin and evolution of life through the development of civilization and technology and eventually all the way into the deepest reaches of outer space.

Begin your odyssey at the dawn of life as a simple microbe just trying to survive, then use the fun, intuitive Editors to evolve the creature from its microscopic origins into an intelligent, tool-using race. Guide your species as it builds (and the player designs) villages, buildings, cities, and vehicles. Along the way to becoming a global civilization you can choose whether to hunt or forage, attack or trade, be nice or play rough.

All the action takes place in a huge, lush world populated with creatures evolved by other players and shared over SPORE's central servers. When it's ready, your one-time pond scum launches into space in its UFO on a grand voyage of discovery, planet forming, or destruct-ion. As you explore and play in this limitless universe of unique worlds, your personal Sporepedia tracks all the creatures you've met and places you've visited.

Take complete control of your creature's fate as you guide it through the following six evolutionary phases:

Unreal Tournament 3

[img_assist|nid=472|title=|desc=|link=node|align=left|width=100|height=67] After years of waiting Unreal Tournament 3 is finally on shelves. UT3 sticks to the old-school premise that had made classic games a fun experience. Elements have been replaced to create a faster-paced environment, such as not including the Shield Game. Now players will now find that the fast pace is a primary way to dodge and withstand fire. Epic has boldly decided to merge some of the old elements with the new in UT3. Dodge-jumping from UT200# is out, but the double-jumping is still present along with wall-dodging.

Call of Duty 4

[img_assist|nid=464|title=|desc=|link=node|align=left|width=100|height=75]Call of Duty 4 has moved away from the World War 2 battle scene and into modern day conflict. It tells a story from multiple perspectives, letting you play as a British SAS operative and as a US Marine, taking you from a rainy night out on the sea onto saving millions from a nuclear-powered death. You’ll move from house to house in the Middle East while conducting a full-scale assault, raid Russian farmhouses searching for terrorists, disguise yourself as the enemy and later crawl through the bush as the enemy moves right past you.
