The game is out in stores today and each launch copy of the game is a premium boxed set with a free music CD complete with artwork chosen by the fans. In Radiant Historia, you’ll be able to travel through time as Special Intelligence Agent Stocke to rewrite history in a sort of steampunky RPG adventure set to Yoko Shimomura’s soundtrack.

    Jim Sonzero, director of cinematics for Capcom’s Resident Evil 5, and the horror film, Pulse, is hard at work again directing some big names for Killzone 3.  The game, developed by Guerilla Games will be the first of the series to be in 3D — a format that’s still a little touchy with gamers. Sonzero will be directing, Malcolm McDowell and Ray Winstone (both of whom are well known for both their work on screen as video game voice work) as the Helghast leaders, Stahl and Orlock in Killzone 3.  The actors will not only be supplying the voices but they’ve also lent their facial and body movements to the game through the use of motion capture techniques often most often reserved for the likes of feature films.

    Do you want to be my PlayDate? Undercover at GameCrush

    This article contains some sexual themes. Day One All Player 1 wanted was a smile. So I gave it to him. “When you don’t smile, it looks like you hate me.” I didn’t hate him by any means (the young man in question was actually quite a nice fellow, based on our limited interactions), but to put it simply, I wasn’t used to this webcam thing. I wasn’t used to someone watching me while I made decisions in Battleship or Checkers. It’s all new. So, I’m sorry if my face was a little lost in thought – it’s because I was thinking.
