Dirt 3

Dirt 3 developers Codemasters are releasing Monte Carlo DLC, but it has nothing to do with the movie. I'm sorry, but with Monte Carlo coming out a few days from now, it really seems impossible to go without mentioning it. So, just to make sure that we're clear on this one, the Monte Carlo DLC doesn't mean that the developers at Codemasters "love you like a love song." Sorry to disappoint, fellas.

What Codemasters does have for you is a collection of eight new racetracks to satisfy your Dirt 3 racing appetite. Each course takes place in beautiful Monte Carlo, aptly named for its placement atop the Maritime Alps. For the asking price of $10 you can take a spin around the town of "Charles' Mountain" in this piece of DLC - available for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC through Games for Windows Marketplace. Enjoy the ride.

Starfox 64 Get July 14 Japanese Releast Date

Starfox 64 3D speaks to me. It inspires me. I am led toward the following, simple ode: Ah, Peppy. Without your wisdom guiding me, I might never have found my way. I might never have gotten those enemies off of my tail. Don't let the 3D change you, Peppy. Lead me. Guide me. Tell me to do a barrel roll.

Peppy, Fox, and crew are returning in the 3D remake of the high-flying classic. We got some hands-on time with the 3DS title and Jake Gaskill's here to report his first impressions:

"The moment I pulled off my first back flip reversal to get the drop on an enemy that I had carelessly overflown during my hands-on time with Starfox 64 3DS at E3 2011, I was instantly transported to my childhood bedroom where a much younger version of myself used to sit cross-legged for hours at a time playing the original Starfox 64. Needless to say, finally getting my hands on the game after all these years was one of the highlights of this year’s E3, helped along by the fact that the 3DS remastering of this classic flight shooter plays exactly like you’d hope it would, and it works beautifully in 3D."

Things are looking up for this remake. Do a barrel roll over to our Starfox 64 3D Preview and see what you think.

Dead Island: The Making Of An Amazing Video Game Trailer

Dead Island really could have been handled a different way. Think of the resort's advertisements: "We'll murder your troubles! We'll slay your stress! We'll demolish your dreariness and revitalize your relaxation!" What's that, you say? You like fighting off zombies during your vacation? Suit yourself. 

We took some time with Dead Island and learned a little more about its multiplayer mode. Dana Vinson enlightens the masses:

The entire campaign is playable in co-op mode, and you can drop in and drop out with different friends at different times, or play consistently with the same people to level up together. If you choose to play with someone who’s a higher level than you, the game will warn that there are spoilers ahead. At that point, you can choose to proceed or not at your own mental risk. If you hate people and want to play alone (or maybe you only sort of like people so you have a team of two), you will not be accompanied by AI teammates; instead, the enemies will scale depending on the number of players in your party.

That sounds like some intelligent game design to me and it looks like the developers have put the same amount of care into sculpting the title as a whole, but don't take my word for it; check out our Dead Island E3 2011 Multiplayer Preview.

 Fruit Ninja Kinect

Fruit Ninja Kinect is only the first step in your journey. What's the final step? It'll be you, your sword, and your wits vs. the infamous fruit-cannon, the deadly device that has been the scourge of man and beast alike.

Okay, okay… while that's not exactly probable, what is probable is that you'll get a kick out of this game if you enjoyed its mobile predecessor. Adam Rosenberg tells us more:

"The popular mobile game Fruit Ninja, from Australian developer Halfbrick, requires that you imbue your finger with the grace and finesse of a trained dancer. Weaving complex patterns across the touchscreen on your device of choice, you skillfully slice your way through miles upon miles of airborne fruit, while avoiding the occasional bomb that gets chucked into your path. Your points score rises quickly as combos mount, and fruit starts to fly faster and more furiously. You're a Zen master though, quiet and patient, striking out with the tip of your digit only when the moment is right.

Summer of Arcade downloadable title Fruit Ninja Kinect is virtually unchanged from its smaller screen predecessor in terms of the gameplay, but in trading up from a touchscreen to a motion-sensing camera, the experience changes from an idyllic test of your concentration and patience to a muscle-straining workout of flailing arms and ridiculous posing.

It is, to sum things up simply, out of control fun."

Fruit Ninja Kinect will likely be invading countless living rooms when it gets released. See if it's worth inviting into yours by checking out our Fruit Ninja Kinect Preview!

Let's be honest here -- a title like this doesn't need much of an introduction. It's World of Tanks. It's in the world… and there are tanks. That's about enough for me, but just in case you needed to know anything else, we got together with Victor Kislyi, CEO at Wargaming.net, to get a little more informed. Topics of interest included his mention of the MMO's 15 vs. 15 pvp battles, the player garage that can hold up to 200 tanks, and the fact that you'll be tasked with leveling up both your tanks and your crew members. Get even more informed with the interview below:

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift 2

BlazBlue has left the big screen yet again and is going wherever you take your PSP or 3DS in BlazBlue Continuum Shift 2. Fans of the franchise will be happy to know that this iteration of the title includes all of the fighters from BBCS2 (including the three DLC characters from the 360 and PS3: Makoto, Valkenhayn, and Platinum) and unlockable alternate costumes and voices that usually sell for real-life coins in the online stores. Brian Leahy's got the rest of the scoop:

"The Continuum Shift story is included in full and is still just as ridiculous as ever. It’s definitely not going to appeal to everyone and I’ve grown a bit tired of its format requiring you to play through each character and selectively win, lose, or fulfill special conditions to move on and see each fighter’s “true ending.” I find myself skipping the story in new BB games, but new players should at least give it a shot. Beyond that, you’ll get a laundry list of modes highlighted by an improved Legion Mode and the all-new Abyss mode."

Discover all of this and more in our BlazBlue Continuum Shift 2 Review.

Somewhere "off the coast of Canada," the zombies are coming. Jaime Bencia, Producer from Konami, tells us a little bit about Zombie Apocalypse 2. Fans of the original can expect a more robust story, a 4 player team squad mode, character-specific weapons and special abilities, and the return of the teddy bear from the first Zombie Apocalypse. They can also look forward to the humorous writing talents of the crew from Pure Pwnage -- and Jeremy is starring as the main character.
