Ikaruga is fabulous. It's like a supermodel shooter, completely gorgeous to look at but almost unapproachable for mere mortals and at its heart is one of the cleverest game mechanics a shooter could possibly have. Light bullets kill light, dark bullets kill dark and in Ubisoft's upcoming action platform game for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, the idea has been pinched and cheekily reworked a little.

Not much is known about Outlander other than it's extremely fast, and will debut at the upcoming PAX Expo in the US. Screenshots look sort of funky, a bit like a cross between Trine and Ikaruga. Definitely something unexpected from Ubisoft. We like.

I love it. It's the rally game I've been waiting for since Rallisport Challenge 2 (and it's a lot more technical / satisfying than that!) ...
