Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust Hitting PLAYSTATION 3

Yeah, we really don't want to report this at all. For all we know, Leisure Suit Larry games suck. But your our audience, and you may want to know this.

Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust is the perfect name to define the gaming franchise considering it's horrible. In this upcoming title, Larry is doing summer work at his uncle's movie theater doing weird jobs and looking for a mole who wants to destroy his uncles privacy be airing the studio's dirty laundry.

We will "try" to have more on this title as information comes in.

Dark Sector: Weapons Trailers

Digital Extremes have released a plethora of new trailers for the upcoming action game, Dark Sector. The new trailers show off the various weapons in the game, such as your shotgun, mini-gun, sniper rifle, and of course the old west style hammer 1895 gun. Enjoy!

X-PLAY: First Prototype Gameplay Footage Revealed

The latest episode of X-PLAY featured Sierra Entertainment's upcoming open world title, Prototype. This is the first gameplay shown, and the city does seem a bit buggy, but fear not, it's a 2009 release and it's bound to look better. Enjoy!

Pirate Scurv Dogg: The Upcoming PAIN Character

Well, you know if the creators of PAIN are bringing a Ninja over to the game as a playable character, they need to bring over a pirate too, right? Well, they are working on a pirate just as well. This pirate's name is Scurv Dogg, but also known as S-Dizzle. Throwing this guy around the city is going to be one heck of a time.

Other than another character, the creators of PAIN are wrapping up the testing with the upcoming Fun With Explosives single player mode. The Ninja Hung Lo is nearly ready to launch (out of my slingshot) as soon as the testing is complete.

They hint at a new cheerleader or nurse character coming as their new poll states "What's Hotter? Cheerleaders or Nurses?". Next post, Travis will be updating us on the upcoming Amusement Park level.

Crysis Really, Actually, For Real, Coming to PLAYSTATION 3?

Rumors of a PLAYSTATION 3 version of Crysis have been going around for quite a while now. Insiders at the Crytek studio are revealing that Crysis is in development for PLAYSTATION 3. They describe it as a port of the PC version with some extra modes and features, sort of like a Crysis 1.5.

Just like the PC version, you can expect beautiful visuals and an open world shooter. If this is true, that means you can expect many great shooters for PLAYSTATION 3 this year, including KILLZONE 2, Resistance 2, HAZE, Crysis, and more.

They state for tecnical reasons, they were not able to develop a version of Crysis for the Xbox 360.

With only a year into the life of the PLAYSTATION 3, you can hold off on this for a few more years.

Kojima: Three More Projects On the Way

In last week's Kojima Productions Report, the host Ryan Payton, stated that if the packers won the NFC Divisional Playoff game, he would get permission to announce something new in the works. Well, the Packers made their touchdowns and won the game, and upheld his end of the bargain in this week's podcast.

At the end of the podcast, Payton announced a couple of announcements that are coming (I know, weird right?). He says that Kojima Productions is working on three other projects to come this summer.

Unfortunately, he was not able to get permission to name at least one of these three titles. But this sure is exciting for Metal Gear fans.

Turok Demo Hitting EU PLAYSTATION Network on February 7, 2008

While the Xbox Live Marketplace received their Turok demo on Tuesday, seems Propaganda is making owners of the EU PLAYSTATION 3 wait.

A lot of users were expecting a Turok demo to arrive today, as was I, but it seems that not the case. Disney Interactive confirmed today that the PLAYSTATION 3 demo is coming on February 7, 2008.

My advice for the developers: get them both out at once.
