Madden 12 is currently in the works at EA, and the folks in charge have decided to make things a little interesting for gamers this time around by allowing them to decide which athlete’s face will grace the cover of this edition of the game, according to IGN. In recent years, fans have come to jokingly believe in something called “The Madden Curse,” in which players who appear on the game’s cover end up suffering injuries or fall into other unfortunate circumstances which negatively affect their performance on the field.
We’re crossing our fingers for Ben Roethlisberger being this year’s pick.

Crysis 2 will be released soon–on March 22, to be exact–and everything we’ve seen from this game so far looks mighty encouraging. The visuals are impressive, early reviews are positive, and well, it’s another Crysis game, which is simply good news in general.
On top of that, about three minutes of gameplay footage have just been released, in case we weren’t excited enough. Take a look to see what you’re in store for…

With Rock Band and Guitar Hero a thing of the past, someone else needs to come along and give us a chance to rock out to some classic tunes while gaming at the same time. According to G4, that someone will be Ubisoft; they’ve just announced that they’ll be releasing a similar title called Rocksmith. But, there’s a twist: you’ll need a real guitar to play.

Batman: Arkham City, the long-awaited sequel to the popular Batman: Arkham Asylum, has an official release date of October 18, 2011, according to G4. While we can’t say we’re too thrilled with the title, if it is anything like its predecessor, we are in for one hell of a gaming experience this fall.

It’s a given that the more players an online game has, the more hacks and glitches will surface, thanks to evil-doers who want to game the system. Such is the case with Call of Duty: Black Ops, which can already be exploited on release day for undeserved gain.

While I don’t condone cheating, I don’t think ignoring or silencing problems with the game will make them go away. So let’s get it all out in the open, shall we?

Sony swears that Gran Turismo 5 will be released this holiday season, but what would the launch be without one more delay to a date unknown?

After years of push-backs, and an announcement in January that the game would be delayed indefinitely, the firm date was exciting news. And now it’s been erased.

Halo: Reach was released today, and if you’ve got an Xbox 360 I’m guessing you’ve already scoured the web for reviews and decided whether it’s worth your $60. Either that, or you were one of the many who threw caution to the wind and showed up at your local video game store for Halo: Reach’s midnight launch. Since I was not one of those people, I thought it’d be fun to round up some of the more notable reports from the ground.
