Dark detective drama L.A. Noire has extended its reign on top of the charts, spending a third week at number one.
E'lara lorra laughs.
Campaign co-operative play was once the preserve of the dedicated PC gamer, but these days it's become a standard gameplay feature and it's not hard to see why.
My experience playing Gears of War, for example, was infinitely superior once I had someone there to witness me punting a Locust corpse around a room while shouting that we do not negotiate with terrorists, and I know that Left 4 Dead was more memorable whenever someone had to fight their way across a level to save my life than it would have been if I'd just used a health pack.
The presence of a friend means that co-op is fun by default, and it would be nice to see more games embracing the concept from the outset rather than tacking it on.
Swords and shields adventure Hunted: The Demon's Forge hopes to capture your imagination this week. By virtue of it being the only major release, will it capture the contents of your wallet too?
Meet the enemies you'll be hacking apart.
Crucible map maker mode detailed.
Inxile president Matt Findley speaks.
Grab your bow and arrow! Unsheathe your blade! Hunted: The Demon's Forge launches on the 3rd June, 2011 and promises innovative co-op action, as well as a deep single-player quest.
Hunted: The Demon's Forge will let you make and share levels with friends via an unannounced (but leaked nonetheless on some very naughty shop websites) Crucible feature, developer inXile has told Eurogamer.
Last week Bethesda challenged the sexual active population of the world to conceive now so that a baby can be born on "Skyrim Day" - 11th November 2011 (TES V: Skyrim's release date).
Co-op fantasy monster-masher Hunted: The Demon's Forge lands this summer, yet I bet your knowledge of it is still fuzzy and disorganised. Maybe you've read our preview with inExile founder Brian Fargo talking about how the game is "bringing the classic dungeon crawl back". Perhaps you've heard the community chatter that dubs the game "Gears of Warcraft". Maybe you've looked at a picture of it and thought: breasts! And who could blame you? If I were Brian Fargo, I'd have called the game Bones 'n Breasts, in a classy nod to 1988 classic Ghouls 'n Ghosts.
Bethesda has dated three massive games: Brink, Hunted and Rage.
Brink, Splash Damage's gorgeous blend of single- and multiplayer, will be released in Europe on 20th May and in the US on 17th May.
Tom Bramwell last looked at Brink for Eurogamer: "Splash Damage has made popular games before - Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory is in the top three most-played online PC shooters to this day, Wedgwood claims - but Brink looks well on course to be its best yet."
Full disclosure: we're not sure why we brought up Jason Statham in this interview, but we're leaving it in. This is to take nothing away from the lovely Maxx Kaufman, game director on Hunted: The Demon's Forge, and another of our delightful speakers during the developer sessions at this year's Eurogamer Expo.
Eurogamer is delighted to announce that Bethesda Softworks will present id Software's RAGE and inXile's Hunted: The Demon's Forge for the first time ever in the UK at next month's Eurogamer Expo, taking place 1st - 3rd October at Earls Court, London.
It's not the end of the world! Not in Hunted: The Demon's Forge, anyway, which marks this game out as rather unusual. If there's a common theme among Bethesda Softworks titles it's apocalyptic events causing people to squabble over whatever's left. Whether it's Fallout: New Vegas (nukes), Rage (asteroid) or Brink (flood), it is the end of the world, and you have an interesting, usually rather violent role to play during the death throes.
Bethesda's co-op fantasy game in motion.
It's not that long since we last (and first) saw Hunted: The Demon's Forge. When we were introduced to the game then, studio founder Brian Fargo announced his intention to revive the classic fantasy dungeon crawl; his colleagues Matt Findley and Maxx Kaufman showed us the muscular third-person action game, designed around two-player co-op, that they were marrying it with.
Bethesda has announced plans to publish Hunted: The Demon's Forge for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, developed by Brian Fargo's inXile Entertainment.
inXile's new dungeon brawler.
Brian Fargo. It sounds like the name of an Old West gold prospector. It's true that this veteran of the 1980s California development scene - founder of Interplay, and so publisher of the Fallout games - doesn't really look that part, preppy and trim in his Orange County casual-smart-casual. But he can't resist opening his unveiling of his studio's latest game by schooling us kids in a potted history of the great gaming gold rush.
