Our franchise milking friends over at Activision have announced the newest in their line of Guitar Hero rhythm games, and the title almost has a hint of Jack Black in it - Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock.

As has become tradition, a new guitar controller has been planned for release alongside the game, but it's more than just a guitar - it's your weapon and livelihood. The player can change the shape of the guitar, customizing it to fit your personal Warrior of Rock. You think you know Guitar Hero? Watch this trailer and tell me if it's what you expected.

The second episode of Team 17's original sci-fi shooter, Alien Breed, is now available worldwide via Steam. Alien Breed is a rework of the Amiga classic sci-fi game from 1991.

Prices for Impact are as follows, depending on region:

UK - £12.99
Steam Euro zone 1 - €14.99

Here's a trailer to wet your appetite for alien face shooting:

We're the bearers of good news, and to prove that, we're here to inform you that you can now team up with a friend and play co-operatively via Steam. Surely there's nothing better than filling one of those slimy aliens full of holes with a friend.

Massive space ships flooded with aliens? We've done it in Diablo's Dungeons, Doom's eerie turns, and even against Halo's Flood. What makes this different?

Blur PR Stunt Draws UK Media

Activision might not have rick roll'd anyone before, but they do their fair share of stunts. Not typically known for their good PR, the company recently painted a 'crash scene' on the magistrate's office wall in the UK. Taking around 30 hours to complete, the artwork can be found in the core of East London.

Notice how the wheel has gone missing in the second picture.

Red Dead Redeems Multiplayer

By Published April 24, 2010 at 5:27 pm

Red Dead Redemption has received a lot of media attention lately. It's been called the Grand Theft Auto of the Wild West by many magazines, and even Rockstar admits their latest creation has roots in its predecessors. The game is supposed to be loosely based on Red Dead Revolver, a title dropped by Capcom in 2002. Recently released screenshots, gameplay footage, and developer commentary seems to prove that the main relationship between the two titles is the prefix. Westerns were overplayed in the early days of television, and perhaps as a result, they have been entirely ignored by the video gaming community. Until now. Redemption's new Multiplayer teaser videos are enticing, and might be just what this game needs to push it over the edge.

Just Cause 2: Multiplayer?

By Published April 18, 2010 at 1:58 pm

Just Cause 2 is a combination of the best play-on-words in gaming and a James Bond-styled action game. Unfortunately, the original game shipped without multiplayer functionality, damaging the longevity of an otherwise explosive game. Queue the modders. A demo reel showcasing a vehicular synchronization test for the Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod has been released, and so far, we see something that even Saints Row 2 couldn't natively pull off: vehicles in multiplayer that are actually synchronized. View the video below.
