THE PRIVATE MILITARY COMPANIES (PMCS)
As the era of the nation-state draws toward its end, the world of warfare is evolving rapidly. New challenges demand new solutions, sometimes with unpredictable outcomes.

For many years, state-sponsored militaries have struggled to maintain and modernize their forces. Increasing budget restrictions and difficulties in recruiting skilled personnel have led many countries to seek other solutions. More and more nations now rely increasingly on Private Military Companies (PMC) – elite mercenary groups staffed with equally elite personnel - to support their field operations.

PMCs have proven to be excellent partners in respect to efficiency, skills, low prices, and reliability. They’ve been able to fulfill most of the mission normally handled by regular armies, without risking political fallout.

In time, these private military corps diversified their field of operations, from mere securing land objectives to motorized assault and counter-intelligence. It was not long before a few of these PMC secured enough resources to require being involved complete support air and sea-bound operations.

With each passing year, the PMCs expand their influence and scope of activity. Initially just consultants, they are now involved in surveillance, logistics, site security, and other essential roles. In order to keep the war machine going most of the PMC warranted firms dealing with other sources of income such as mining, oil extraction, airliners, goods manufacturing etc. Ensuring a steady flow of currency allowed these companies to operate a tighter game against their opposition. Each year, they come closer to serving as fully operational field units, and their services are so widely used they’re already essential. Pandora’s Box has been opened. There’s no getting rid of the PMCs now.

Bionic Commando
check it out, environments and movement lookin pretty cool

OFFICIAL WEBSITE: http://www.bioniccommando.com
PLATFORMS: PC, PS3, XB360/Live
RATING: M for Mature
PUBLISHER: Capcom

DESCRIPTION
Arm yourself! The 20 year wait is over as Bionic Commando swings back into action on Xbox 360®, PLAYSTATION®3 and PC.

The first true sequel to the classic 1988 Nintendo Entertainment System original, Bionic Commando sees the return of the bionically-enhanced Nathan "Rad" Spencer, voiced by Mike Patton, the former lead singer of Faith No More. Time has not been kind to Spencer: 10 years after his heroic defeat of the Imperials in the original game, he has been betrayed by the government he swore to serve, imprisoned for crimes he didn't commit, and sentenced to death.

On the very day of Spencer's execution, terrorists detonate a massive experimental weapon in Ascension City, unleashing an intense earthquake that has turned the city into rubble and wiped out its population. With the terrain in ruins and the city's air defense grid now in the control of a massive terrorist force whose goal remains unclear, the FSA have only one option left - a behind-the-lines assault. The perfect job for a Bionic Commando.

Bionic Commando transposes the swing-and-shoot gameplay of the 8-bit original to a stunning 3D environment of towering buildings, suspended roadways and monorails, deep canyons and sheer rock faces, where every environment is scalable using swinging, scaling, climbing and wall-walking techniques.

Game Features:

Use the bionic arm to swing between towering skyscrapers at breathtaking speed, hook onto distant objects, zip up on hanging girders and choose your own route through the game
Explore anywhere - on land, in the air, or swinging from the top of 50-story skyscrapers - in a game that redefines 3D action
Gameplay that moves through horizontal and vertical environments - a 3D game that truly uses all three dimensions
Use the power of the bionic arm - and of next-gen physics - to realistically throw massive objects, pummel opponents, whip enemies into the air, or pull the landscape apart
Arm yourself with a variety of weapons worthy of a Bionic Commando
Starring Mike Patton, the former lead singer of Faith No More, as the voice of Nathan Spencer
Published by Capcom, the makers of the Resident Evil and Street Fighter series as well as next-gen hits Lost Planet and Dead Rising
Developed by Swedish studio GRIN, developers of the highly acclaimed Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter series for PC.

Assassin's Creed 2

OFFICIAL WEBSITE: http://assassinscreed.us.ubi.com/assassins-creed-2/teaser/

no real information provided... will post as it becomes available.

DESCRIPTION
Source: GameSpy (http://xbox360.gamespy.com/xbox-360/assassins-creed-2/973914p1.html)
Yesterday Ubisoft decided it was time to send out the official word on Assassin's Creed II, the follow-up to 2007's high-profile action adventure game. The teaser trailer doesn't give a lot away, but now Ubisoft has graced the gaming community with a few scant details -- including the name and background of the new main character Ezio -- in the form of a press release to accompany the movie.

Assassin's Creed II is the product of over two years of intensive development by the original creative team behind the Assassin's Creed brand. In a vast open world environment, the game invites players to incarnate Ezio, a privileged young noble in Renaissance Italy who's been betrayed by the rival ruling families of Italy.

Ezio's subsequent quest for vengeance plunges players into a captivating and epic story that offers more variety in missions, surprising and engaging new gameplay elements, diverse weapons and a profound character progression that will appeal to fans of the original Assassin's Creed as well as entice players new to the brand.
As we reported recently, there's a big cover feature in the latest edition of Game Informer magazine which has subsequently been ripped apart, scanned, and posted all over the Internet. We're looking forward to more information coming out of the upcoming E3 2009 show.
