Thought Army of Two was a great idea? That's so two weeks ago. Playing with friends isn't the way to do it if you get to wear a super suit, fly around taking down tanks, helicopters, airplanes, aliens, volcano's and black holes (OK, maybe not volcano's).

As if the movie and game trailers didn't get you stoked for it enough already, the official Iron Man website just went live a few minutes ago. It's not completely done, but it might be worth a bookmark to see what downloads they have to offer.

There's an interview with a member of the German Workshop Group BattleHeat (the people that created this armor), they talk about the creation of the paladin armor set, the challenges they face and their ideas for the future.

There's been no official confirmation but it looks as if Pandemic Studios, developer of upcoming Mercenaries 2, is working away on the Batman game which ties-in with the impending film.

EA recently acquired Pandemic, as well as BioWare, and the publisher is handling the IP for a game - so is this all true or some sinister ploy by The Joker?

Well, maybe not, but it certainly doesn't seem pleased with the lack of success of Madden 08 on the PC. That's what Peter Moore announced today on his blog.

He goes into why that decision has been made, though I don't think that it really needs explaining. Madden is a console game, although seeing it on the PC isn't a problem...but it is odd.

Or specifically, that 72% played a game. Played a game? Well now, that means 72% of people are just so lucky, aren't they?

No, really, we know that it's anyone who's had an internet connection has played an internet game, whether they know it or not. Then again, if 72% know it, that means over 200 million Americans admit to having played some videogame in one way or another.
