Eidos is gonna hit us next year with another game in the tomb raider series. With the new trend of “re-imagining” things, this new adventure is gonna be a retelling of her first adventure from back on the ps1. Chec the statement from Ian Livingstone, director at Eidos.
“We’ve captured the essence of what made the original game so special and with today’s technology, created a game that pushes the boundaries of the current gaming consoles,”
“Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a special celebration of Lara’s reign as video gaming’s leading lady.”
I thought i’d give you guys a heads up about this sweet package you get from ebgames if you pre-order castlevania:portrait of ruin for the ds, online from their store. Peep what you get:

20th Anniversary Soundtrack CD: Spanning 20 years of music that has defined the Castlevania series, this soundtrack contains songs from nearly every Castlevania game ever made, including four never before released tracks from Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin.
Stylus and DS Game Case: Extendable stylus and transparent game case are both emblazoned with the Castlevania logo.
Timeline Poster: Detailing key events and characters in the history of Castlevania, this fold-out poster features a timeline on the front and a Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin poster on the back.
That’s a pretty hot deal for a ds game! Head on over a get your reserves on!
What Up GameHeadz. If you are a TrueGameHead, you most likely know that to find the real sleeper games and the hidden gems you’ll have to buy your games from other places besides the EB/Gamestops. Often times I find myself trolling the bins at Toys R’ US to see if they have a discounted game in there (ie Punisher, Hulk, Conkers etc) but if you go to the game stores, you are more than likely to see dozens of games you “Don’t” want.
Now you can go to good ole EBAY and do an individual search, but why not check out this new site called “VideoGameLocator.com”
This new site indexs Ebay and finds the auctions for you. Right Now it’s only enabled for Nintendo DS, PSP and 360, but soon it’ll have the Wii and PS3 and work backwards to get the older systems in stock.
Basically say you wanted Spider Man 2 for the Nintendo DS. You click on the title and then all the listings for that game on EBAY show up. With it’s current auction price, time left etc. If you click on a title, it’ll take you right into the EBAY auction.
Now you say why don’t you just go to EBAY and do a search? Lets say you don’t know what you want. Maybe you just know you want a game. This site lists ALL the games for each console. So if you see one you are interested in, you just click on the image of the box and “Check out the price”. Sort of like a virtual wall of games.
There are a lot of ways to improve on a site like this, but it’s a start, and it shows how people are using EBAY’s open api.
Check it out, and if you buy a game. Let em know TrueGameHeadz. Sent you
Ea has finally let it be known that Superman Returns the videogame will be hittin us on nov. 20 (way past the release of the film, ahh well) for the Xbox 360, PS2, Xbox and DS. So save up $$$ and pray that this will be the best superman game to date!…..Damn isn’t that sad that as many superman games were made, all of them sucked ass!
Aight, we all know the Japanese tend to be some crazy kats when it comes to making games. But I think this is going a little bit overboard! Apparentley SNK is droppn’ this game called Doki Doki Majo Saiban in Japan. The premise, you basically have to find witches hiding on modern day earth. And how do you find them? You simply touch them in “special” areas to see if they are a witch. Now I don’t know if thats how they did it back in the day in Japan(if they even had witch hunts to begin with), but I think thats a little crazy. Can you imagine someone seeing you on the train touching girls on your DS screen!!! The site is in japanes, but check it out for some pics!

Well it looks like the folks over at Bioware are feeln’ the little old DS. They announced support for the handheld system as well as their entry into the handheld market. Good things can only come from these kats now that they are on the playing field. If you aren’t familiar with the studio, they dropped Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic(which happend to be hella better than the prequel movies).
“Details about the new game are scarce at best, but BioWare president Greg Zeschuk said, “… We are committed to creating the best story-driven games in the world, and the Nintendo DS offers us an exciting new platform to engage.”
Project director Dan Tudge, former president of Exile Interactive, will lead the group. Exile co-developed games such as Sega’s World Series Baseball 2K2 and 2K3, and Toxic Grind. He’s also worked in a supervisory capacity over the development of games for THQ, Nintendo and Microsoft.
In addition, BioWare said that it is hiring for the handheld project. “The new project offers tremendous opportunities, and we’re looking for talented and passionate developers to become part of that,” said Zeschuk. Details can be found at the official company site.
BioWare is currently working on the highly anticipated RPG Mass Effect for Xbox 360, as well as an unnamed MMO game that is under development at BioWare’s recently founded Austin, Texas studio.”
I don’t know about you kats, but im excited and can’t wait to see what they drop!
