The third map pack for Call of Duty: World at War hits Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network today, complete with a brand new co-op zombie map and monkey bombs. To celebrate we're giving away two codes for the Xbox 360 version of the game.
We're about four weeks away from the official kick-off of the Penny Arcade Expo 2009. In just 28 days we'll be kicking with gamers, playing hundreds of upcoming titles, and mingling with developers. And hopefully you will be too!
I'll admit, after watching the trailer for Phono Alliance from independant developer Soft Hope, I wasn't quite sure what I watched. The game is described as a Patapon meets Super Mario Bros. style game. That is, an action platformer with music and rhythym based elements.
If you haven't heard, Starcraft II was officially delayed yesterday by Blizzard. Nobody was really surprised, though many were disappointed. The game was moved into 2010 for a release, and the reasons it was delayed may surprise you.
Military Sims, true Military Sims, are a rarity these days. Instead we've grown used to the likes of Ghost Recon. That's not a knock on Ghost Recon, it's just a true hardcore sim is hard to come by.

Activision and Treyarch have released the final trailer for tomorrow's Map Pack #3 for Call of Duty: World at War. The trailer largely focuses on the game's new co-op zombie map called Der Riese, as well as showcases the game's three new multiplayer maps; Battery, Revoution and Breach.
Just in case the four gazillion tracks available for download aren't enough for you, Harmonix is up to something that will bring even more tunes your way.

CDV has released a fresh batch of screenshots for Serious Sam HD, which comes out on the Xbox Live Arcade and PC this fall. They've also released the box art for the game, which might just be, some of the greatest box art ever created.

With the recent release of the Gears of War 2 All Fronts Collection, we saw a title update which added numerous cooperative achievements to the game. Not only were there three available for the story based content, but an additional dozen for Horde mode on the new maps.
