High-flying fans of Crimson Skies will be pleased to learn of new content available for the game over Xbox Live - a new plane and multiplayer map to be precise.
Nokia has excitedly issued a press release announcing a new self-published first-person shooter called Ashen.

Blizzard has released a patch for Warcraft III and its expansion The Frozen Throne, making an enormous amount of changes that would take us all day and a couple of pages to delve into - if you're really, really interested in every detail of the patch, then you can have a look at the list of changes on Blizzard's site here.
Ubisoft has released a new trailer of Crytek's gorgeous looking shooter Far Cry. Clearly intended to show off the game's physics engine (hence the filename), the video shows off various combat scenarios with combatants interacting with the environment by shooting barrels, scenery and inevitably each other.
Microsoft has released its first proper patch for Gearbox's PC Halo port since the game went retail. Remember that the previous update to the game merely enabled support for dedicated servers, and the update before that was released before the game had even hit the shelves. Halo 1.03 is set to be the first comprehensive update of the FPS, fixing a wealth of issues that almost exclusively deal with the game's multiplayer elements.

Long-time readers of the site will be well aware of my 'love' affair with the utterly risible FPS Postal 2 - a title which, given the opportunity, will launch me into tirades of abusive language and possible violence directed at surrounding machinery and/or furniture such is the horror of having to experience anything associated with that pathetic, impotent attempt at attention seeking. Which, I suppose, makes me no better than Running With Scissors themselves. Ho hum.
The magnificently disappointing Unreal II has, at last, a reason to be dusted off and housed on your hard drives once more. The reason? Multiplayer! And we know how much you needed another multiplayer FPS.
