New Conduit 2 Trailer Heavy on Talk, Light on Action

A little less conversation, a little more action, please

Whilst previous trailers for Conduit 2 have focused on the game's massive amounts of bullets, bangs, booms and bombs, this latest trailer shows off the game's cinematic leanings.

Disappointing figures for 'hog's latest

Sonic Colours for DS and Wii have been garnering positive reviews all over the globe – don't worry, we're working on our reviews too – and launched in the UK on Friday with a somewhat unconventional marketing approach.

Sega Creates an Animal Crossing to Promote Sonic Colours

Wordplay!

Okay, so Sega isn't really creating an instalment in Nintendo's happiest franchise Animal Crossing, but the blue and white company did create a safe hedgehog crossing point in London to promote this Friday's release of Sonic Colours for Wii and DS.

Grab a Blue Classic Controller with Sonic Colours Down Under

And the figures too

The Sonic Colours Special Edition with the Wisp figures is all well and good, but what it's really lacking is an awesome blue Classic Controller. Thankfully now gamers down under can grab themselves a branded Classic Controller when the game launches later this year. Retailer JB Hi-Fi has the bundle available for AU$89.00, pretty cheap compared to the AU$115 being asked for..

Purple Power Unveiled in Latest Sonic Colours Trailer

The power is... smashing things up

Have you been keeping count of the Wisp powers unveiled for Sonic Colours so far? We've lost count by now, but we can add one more to that number with this latest trailer unveiling the purple Wisp that grants Sonic the power of frenzy.

Conduit 2 Ready for Action in February 2011

Sega makes a date

The news of Conduit 2's delay until 2011 was met with more understanding than usual: any time spent polishing the promising FPS should be welcomed. Now Sega has announced the game will make its big entrance in February 2011, with support for PDP's Headbanger headset alongside a dual analogue control scheme for Classic Controller users. Let's hope the extra development time means..

Get ready to tilt some monkeys in the palm of your hand

Earlier today we brought you the 3DS software trailer and the only reason our eyeballs didn't implode with excitement from the barrage of treats on display was because we're weren't seeing it in 3D.
