If there's one thing you can say about From Software, it's that they know how to make a pretty game. These shots from the upcoming Armored Core 4 prove it -- that and From has a thing for giant robots apparently. Sure, the game has some storyline about future governments or something, but it's all ...

The symptoms are what we've come to expect: freezing, audio dropping out, graphical glitches, etc. Is it just us, or does this sound all too familiar?

For at least one gamer, the otherwise disappointing Chromehounds turned out to be a killer app -- as in it killed his 360: I know you have covered the freezing in chromehounds, but I have something new.

For those of us who had the displeasure of owning a copy of MLB 2K6 for the 360 that froze nearly every time we inched our way into a game, it appears Chromehounds could be suffering a similar fate.

Gamebrink has posted an import review of the much anticipated Chromehounds. Bad news: it looks to be sub-par at best. Neither a slow and methodical mech sim, nor a fast and arcadey shoot 'em up, Chromehounds can't seem to make up its mind. From the review: "The first thing you'll probably think to ...
