Pelican will release the Silent Scope Light Rifle to coincide with the February release of Konami s Silent Scope Complete for the Xbox. The motion-activated rifle senses when players tilt their head to look through the scope and instantly responds by triggering the magnified scope view of the target on the screen. The coolest feature has to be the realistic linear kickback that 'kicks' into your shoulder each time you fire the gun. The Silent Scope Light Rifle will be available Tuesday with a suggested retail of $49.99 and is also compatible with House of the Dead for Xbox.
Based on the 1993 award-winning animated movie of the same name, Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas is a ghoulish tale with wicked humor and stunning animation. In this adventure action game, players assume the role of 'Jack Skellington,' the Pumpkin King, and help reclaim Halloweentown from the mischievous Oogie Boogie. Capcom plans to release the game in the fall of 04.
I got a chance to play a demo version of the new Jet Li title 'Rise to Honor' for the PS2 that comes out on the 17th of this month and was blown away by the fluidity of the motion and the detail that went into capturing the fighting style of this fantastic martial arts movie star. A great-looking fighter reinvents the use of your analog sticks during the heat of battle with multiple opponents. Prepare to get hard boiled with this one.
