When the big cheeses are in town, they talk to Eurogamer. Either that or we hunt them down into the dark corners of the Earth and shove a camera in their face. Either way, luminaries from both sides of the Atlantic appear this week in special interview features.

First up is Brian Farrell, CEO and president of increasingly successful US publisher THQ, who discusses the firm's solid PC line-up and gives his thoughts on the next-gen consoles. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, meanwhile, is confident that his company will have the best games in the next-gen, while revealing a push into the RPG genre is on the cards.

It's been a turbulent few months for UK studio Lionhead and its boss Peter Molyneux, having been snapped up by Microsoft back in April. EGTV caught up with Molyneux at last week's Develop Conference in Brighton to discuss his views on the current state of development, joining Microsoft and his current projects. Be sure to check out parts one and two of this exclusive interview.

PC development powerhouse Valve has dominated the game trailer proceedings this week, with a thrilling look at Portal in the forthcoming Half-Life 2: Episode 2, and a new teaser for the long overdue Team Fortress 2.

Elsewhere, we've had updates on some of the biggest next-gen titles this week. EA has given us the first gameplay taster of Need For Speed Carbon; while Atari has been pimping its own 360 racer this week, with new videos for Test Drive Unlimited showing off the AC 289 and Noble M400.

DS owners who want to see what else the nifty system is capable of would be well advised to check out the Opera DS Browser demo which, while in Japanese, offers a tasty peek at the Internet browsing capabilities of Nintendo's versatile handheld.

Meanwhile, PC gamers wishing to squeeze more life of out DICE's Battlefield 2 can check out the new vehicles in store in the Armoured Fury add-on. And finally, with a name that goes some way in describing our current deeply distressed, sweaty-palmed torment, Mercury Meltdown rolls, like beads of sweat down our sticky back, onto PSP in a brand new teaser.
