Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad Of Gay Tony just keeps looking better and better. Behold this Weazel News report about Liberty City’s glorious, glorious violence. Let’s hear it for violence! Yeah!

You're in the massive digital filing cabinet of Games
There are fucking PARACHUTES this time. Holy arse, this will be amazing. Dig out your disco pants and keep your eyes, ears and balls out for this, coming soon from our very good friends at Rockstar. Also, as with all GTA games, be prepared have to exercise a lot of willpower not to jack a bunch of cars for about a month after playing.
Roving, raving FRONT columnist Alex Sim-Wise has gone and made another of her wizard Sim-Wise Does Games featurettes, available for you to watch above. In this one, ASW pays a visit to Rocksteady Studios, makers of the soon-come Batman: Arkham Asylum game.
If you enjoy that one, you can watch more of Alex’s audio-visual video gaming shenanigans over at her YouTube channel. And if you don’t enjoy it… then… well, you can just flipping well naff off then, can’t you.
Happy Monday, everyone. Let’s kick the week off with some daft and faintly geeky violence, eh?
This wacky young champ decided that he wanted to live out the bonus stage in Streetfighter II, where you kick the crap out of a car as quickly as possible, for real – so he dressed up like Ryu and got busy with the punches, kicks and shoryu-kens.
Of course, if he’d dressed up as Blanka instead he could have just electrified the car to bits in seconds. Schoolboy error!
As of the next issue of FRONT, our games section will be taken over by none other than loveable ginger scamp Alex Sim-Wise. She is a massive, console-sniffing geek on the sly, so the pages will be in very good hands.
As a taster of the goodness to come, here are Alex’s brain-thoughts on awesome upcoming violence-fest Prototype.
Last week saw the annual E3 exhibition in LA, at which all of the big names in gadgetry and gaming flash their shit-hot shiny new wares. Causing the biggest buzz was Project NATAL, Microsoft’s new controller-free gaming system for the Xbox 360.
Taking the Wii’s leaping-about-the-living-room shtick to its logical conclusion, it allows you to accurately control on-screen action by flailing your legs, arms, head and crotch about like an OD-ing raver. There’s no release date for it yet, but we do hope it’s soon, because we fucking well WANT ONE.
Christ knows how much it cost to make, mind.
Whoever draws the short straw gets to be Ringo ‘on The Cuntdown’ Starr.
Bruce Dickinson out of Iron Maiden is the coolest man in the world, because he’s a rock star who is also a pilot and a fencer. To celebrate the release of Maiden’s new film Flight 666, some techy people have made this game, which is ace – you fly around the world dropping speakers near people to turn them into Maiden fans using the power of rock (and the X key). Amazing.
