Gamers have plenty to be excited about as an onslaught of games begins
Hot off the heels of the successful game Oblivion, Bethesda Software is set to unleash its latest creation: Fallout 3. As implied, this is the third instalment in the Fallout series, continuing the story of the post-apocalyptic wastelands of the United States. Starting in Vault 101, a fallout shelter in Washington DC, players must embark on a search for their lost father. Bethesda isn't likely to disappoint with Fallout 3. With the scope of Oblivion and up to 10,000 different endings based on the player's decisions through the game, Fallout 3 is a legend in the making. The game will be released for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Q4 this year.
Treyarch takes soldiers back to the frontline with the latest addition to the successful Call of Duty series -- Call of Duty: World at War. Players will return to the series' roots, once again engage the Axis forces in World War II. This time around, players will face the Japanese as they fight in the Pacific theatre, bringing a new look to the series. As both US Marines and Russians, players will take on the Japanese with new weapons and tactics at their disposal. Using the Call of Duty 4 game engine, Treyarch is bringing a new look to World War II, with the addition of cooperative gameplay to intensify the battle. The game is scheduled to hit the Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC this spring.
Don't like Aerosmith? What band-specific Guitar Hero would you like to see? Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, launching 29 June, isn't just a collection of songs grouped together by artist for a stand-alone rhythm game. It's sort of like Behind the Music in interactive form, letting players vicariously relive Aerosmith's 30 year performance history in near-chronological order, from high school to international stardom. So based on mega-platinum sales on multiple occasions (read: broad appeal), a storied history, and anthemic riffs, here are the top five bands we'd like to see in their own Guitar Hero games.
So you've downloaded the Spore Creature Creator. Good for you. If you haven't, it's time to get in on the fun. Here are a few tips on how to start playing a wacko Mother Nature, followed by some examples of just wild how your imagination can run.

Exclusive to Nintendo's Wii, the newest Star Wars game recreates battles from the Clone Wars storyline. Players take on the role of a Jedi Knight and will be able to fight with a lightsaber, utilise Force powers, and exploit their surroundings to defeat enemies, all while using the Wii's motion-sensitive controller. It'll hit the streets later this year.
There's nothing that draws the ire of hardcore gamers more than sports games. The same slate of games, year in, year out offering little but roster updates and a realistic experience of running around with a ball or a stick. Thankfully, a few oddball developers have created some pretty unique sports games that think out of the (batters) box.
Coming exclusively to the Xbox 360, Halo Wars is the latest game in Microsoft Game Studios' premier gaming series. It's being developed by Ensemble Studios, the same company that created the ground-breaking and massively popular Age of Empires series. The real-time strategy game will feature human and Covenant forces, and is set 20 years before the original Halo game. There's no release date set yet, but expect it to be just as popular as Halo 3, which sold $300 million worth of copies in its first calendar week. Check out the slideshow for a heap of pictures of units and gameplay!
Lionhead Studios is expanding the universe it crafted four years ago with the imminent release of Fable II. Set 500 years after the hero avenged his mother and sister, players must again re-enter the world of Albion. The world of Fable II will be much larger than the original, offering players a dynamic experience, complete with realistic physics. As with the original, the players' actions will affect their mood, their appearance and those around them, allowing players to choose whether they are good or evil. The game is expected in Spring this year on the Xbox 360.
In recent years, toy robots have become popular playthings for kids and kids-at-heart alike. Thanks to recent developments in robotics and computer technology, they are almost like having a living, breathing pet (albeit it a slightly deranged one). WowWee is one of the leading manufacturers of robot-centric toys, with something to suit all tastes and ages. Its new generation of mechanical companions includes innovative creations that walk, talk, crawl, fly and, err, purr. For an inside look at some of the latest models off the robot assembly line, check out the following slideshow.
Ascaron Entertainment is set to unleash the follow-up to their 2004 hit RPG Sacred with Sacred 2: Fallen Angel. The latest instalment in the series sees players assume the role of one of six characters as a Seraphim, Shadow Warrior or High Elf. Players must take their place in the battle over the coveted T-Energy in order to prevent the power of the Seraphim from ending up in the wrong hands. Players fight on foot and while mounted, collect unique items and face intelligent enemies that adapt to players' skill levels. The game will also feature a multiplayer co-op mode, as well as five distinct multiplayer modes on the Internet and Xbox Live. The game is expected this year on the Xbox 360 and PC.
While Kojima and Co. may have invented (and possibly perfected) the stealth gameplay method with Metal Gear Solid, that hasn't stopped many a company from shoehorning stupid stealth elements into already terrible titles. Here are eight games that shouldn't have had stealth.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
