How are you enjoying playing Turok? (Don't answer that truthfully, peoples' feelings could be hurt!) Were you aware that you were supposed to be playing it around November of last year? That's when it was originally scheduled to be released, at least. Unfortunately Propaganda Games had some troub...

The new Turok title was originally scheduled for release in November of last year, but only came out this past week. The reason for the four-month delay? According to developer Propaganda Games, it's the PS3's fault. Josh Holmes, VP and studio manager at Propaganda, tells Canada.com that lead deve...

Ever want to like something more than you do? That's the feeling you get while playing Turok. When it works, Turok absorbs the player into a vicious world, one of incredible beauty and ferocity. Struggling against the ever-present menace of dinosaurs, players will find themselves blending in with ...

Last week, we mentioned that if you pre-ordered either Turok or Devil May Cry 4 at Circuit City you could score a $10 gift card. Well, it looks like they've extended the offer to anyone who purchases either game this week, pre-order or not. From Tuesday through Sunday, Circuit City is offering a $10...

Golly gee willickers there's a lot of games out this week. First of all, we should mention that Turok is officially out this week (though it was released early in some areas; we saw it at Blockbuster yesterday). The star of the show this week is probably Devil May Cry 4 though, what with its demon ...

It seems like the release train is back at full speed now, after taking a month-long stop at Sleepytime Station post holidays. This week we've, of course, got the demonic emo action of Devil May Cry 4 and the actual release of Turok for the action fan. On portables, there's the new DS version of A...

With the revamped version of Turok apparently not shipping out until next week, you still have a little time to decide if you're going to be able to take the dino-killing brute back into your life. Now, you non-PS3 gamers have been given the tools to do so, with the demo for the game arriving on X...

Well, it looks like gamers can finally rest easy. Readers may recall that Turok was to include an achievement called "Grab Bag" that rewarded players for killing their own team members. Specifically, players had to kill "at least 1 creature, 1 enemy, 1 teammate, and yourself in the same round of a ...

Someone must have informed Touchstone today that their Turok demo still hadn't been released to the North American XBLM even though it has been readily available to other Live regions two weeks ago. We say this, because magically today said Turok demo became available to United States, Canada and Me...

Concerns over developer-encouraged griefing can now be quelled, as Game|Life reports that a patch will be released the same day that Turok launches in the US (Feb. 5), removing the controversial team-killing achievement from the online modes of both the PS3 and Xbox 360 version. The patch will kee...

You know, when you think about it, Turok is a manly game. In fact, it's just about the manliest game it could possibly be. Let's take a look at the facts. One, you play Joseph Turok, a burly, burly man with a jaw hewn from marble and cheekbones to die for. Two, he kills gun toting soldiers using a ...

Maybe we've taken one too many cerebral bores to the head, but we've decided to feature Touchstone's Turok relaunch as our game of the week. Since we didn't get the demo here in the states, (Ed: The demo is available, but only on PSN). We have no idea if it's a solid title or more of the dreck tha...

We've been writing a lot of "X coming to Y in Z" posts recently, which we assume can only be a good thing. Compared to this time last year when the only thing we knew was coming to the PSN was Calling All Cars. With so much stuff on its way in the future, however, it does make us a little restless ...

If you're one to believe a certain Major Nelson, then there is currently a Turok demo available on Xbox Live Marketplace right damn now. Alas, it seems as though Major's many spies (birds, beasts) are misinformed, as said demo is nowhere to be found. Nope, nothing. We continue to stare at the scree...

We had our heart broken by Turok more than a few times in the past, so we were a bit trepidacious when he showed up on our doorstep again, clean-shaven and with a handful of flowers. But we decided, after dancing in our pajamas and eating ice cream with some of our closest female friends, that love,...

Speaking to CVG, Turok developer Propaganda Games made it known that the developer is considering the removal of the now infamous "Grab Bag" achievement. For those that don't recall, the "Grab Bag" achievement awards gamers 20 points in Turok multiplayer for killing "at least 1 creature, 1 enemy, 1...

After reviewing concerns about its Xbox achievement choices, Propaganda games says it'll consider removing the "team kill" award after the Turok launch early next year. Although CVG reports in its headline "Turok dev to scrap team kill achievement," the quote from Propaganda VP Josh Holmes is actu...

There's a new Turok demo available right now, but you'll have to pre-order the game to play it. Available at select retailers in the US (Best Buy, Wal-mart, GameStop and Game Crazy) they're handing out a Turok demo disc that gamers will get once a pre-order is placed and cash exchanges hands. The de...

In a show of confidence, Touchstone (read: Disney) and Propaganda games are making a pre-order demo available now for Turok -- a full two months before the full game's Feb. 5, 2008 release. The disc has "approximately 30 minutes of gameplay from Turok" and is available at Best Buy, GameStop, Walma...
