Posted in Tecmo Koei, Xbox 360 with tags , on December 7, 2009 by James Love

Touted by some to be the PS3′s answer to Gears of War, Tecmo Koei’s third person shooter Quantum Theory has today been announced that it’s now heading to the Xbox 360 too.

The game centers around Syd and Fillena who must fight through a “living tower,” the living aspect coming from that the tower is constantly adding and taking away cover positions. Neat.

Full PR after the jump. Game due in Europe Spring 2010 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

GOONL!NE Advent Calendar for 2010: #1 – Half Life 2: Episode Three

Posted in EA, PlayStation 3, Valve, Xbox 360 with tags , , , on December 7, 2009 by Jonathan Cullen

By Jonathan Cullen.

For the past two years, I have put together a top 20 list of games for their respective years. In previous years, LittleBigPlanet and Final Fantasy XIII have come out as the winners of them lists. This year, we have a much stronger staff presence in both freelance and full-time staff.

So, instead of arguing and bickering over a top 20 list, we decided to bring you a series of articles you’ll be seeing from us every day until just before Christmas. You may even see one game already picked by one of the other staff members here on GO. It may even show you how fucking pumped we are for the said game.

For now though, we start off with No. 1 on this advent calendar, which hasn’t actually been confirmed for 2010. But dear jesus, it needs to be out next year by any rate – Half Life 2: Episode Three.

Gearbox Trademarks ‘Borderworlds’

Posted in 2k Games, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 with tags , , on December 4, 2009 by Chris Hawke

Rumors have been flying even since Borderlands was released as to whether a sequel would be made. Well, ladies and gentlemen, we think we have an answer. According to a recent trademark listing, you can see for yourself: Gearbox Software LLC has trademarked the title ‘Borderworlds’.

While there’s a lot of legal mumbo-jumbo, the point remains; Gearbox are obviously in need of the title ‘Borderworlds’, and Borderlands has ‘lands’ in it, and ‘Borderworlds’ has ‘worlds’ in it…seeing the connection? Is this another single-player/co-op game an a larger scale, or maybe an MMO set in the cel-shaded world? We’ll expect an announcement soon.

Gran Turismo 5 Demo Lands on December 17th

Posted in PlayStation 3 with tags , , on December 3, 2009 by Jonathan Cullen

Sony’s announced that a playable demo build of Gran Turismo 5 will be released on December 17th in ten EU countries for the start of its GT Academy.

Last year, the first Academy was held with qualification possible by playing GT5: Prologue. Now though, if you want to enter this year, you must download the demo from the 17th. Then again, if you’re just looking to play for the fun of it, go nuts.

As the EU PS Blog says: “it will be the first opportunity to get a hands-on taster as to what Yamauchi-san and his Polyphony team have been carefully crafting and polishing at their Tokyo base.”

The car in the demo will be a Nissan 370Z, with a new track for GT5 being the track. That track wasn’t confirmed, but it was hinted it was the new Tokyo circuit.

Go find more info here. GT5 launches in Japan in March. No Western date yet.
