For a while now, the tubes were abuzz about a possible Assassin's Creed 2.5 title. This game would not continue the adventures of Desmond Miles, but those of Ezio Auditore da Firenze (go ahead and say that 5 times fast). Once again the tubes were correct as Ubisoft confirmed that a leaked game cover from Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is indeed the real deal. Little is known about the game other than it will launch for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC this fall. Ubisoft did promise more information about Assassin's Creed Brotherhood next week. Read on for more information.

Years before gamers first heeded the call of duty, they fought for honor (and possibly a medal). It is hard to believe that it has been over decade since the Steven Spielberg penned game first appeared on the PlayStation console and headshot the gaming world into submission. Since then, a series of bad console ports turned the name "Medal of Honor" into a dirty word to gamers. That may soon change as EA is relaunching the franchise this October with fresh "modern" gameplay and action enough to reclaim its crown as top first person war game. Medal Of Honor will drop on store shelves October 12 for the PC, the Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles. Read on for more information.

"We have to strike now, sir! Annihilate! Kill! Kill! Kill! " Once again the Earth is the takeover target by a bunch of alien scum in this re-imaging of the classic PC title X-COM: UFO Defense. Details on this new game are scarce, but it does not appear that it will inherit the strategic element of its spiritual predecessor as this new XCOM title is all about shooting. Also it would appear that the Extraterrestrial Combat Unit is not readily available to take care of business so it will be up to an FBI agent to save the world. Read on for more information.

Have you ever wanted to play a game where you’re a tough as nails buckaroo like Clint Eastwood set in the American Old West? Then you are in luck for Rockstar is about to grant you your wish with Red Dead Redemption.

Red Dead Redemption is not the first game set in the Wild West, but it may be the first game to get it just right. Unlike most other western games, this one allows the player to create his/her own legacy by roaming about in a huge open world, free from the requirement to follow a linear path. The Asylum was able to get some hands-on time with the game at PAX East. What did we think of the game? Read on for more information.

There are plenty of fine racing games available for the Xbox 360, but Formula One fans have been left in the dark. Part of this reason was that Sony had a lock on Formula One games. That lock has been passed on to Codemasters and the developer is about to end that drought and bring the high speed racing series to the Xbox 360 for the first time, along with the PS3 and PC platform. The game will feature all the F1 teams, circuits and cars of the 2010 season. The game is scheduled for a September release. Read on for more information.
