2K Games to release Dubai-based First Person Shooter?


Our frag-happy pals at MEGamers posted a link to a mysterious new video of an FPS depicting Dubai as a sandy post-apocalyptic wasteland, complete with cameos of Emirates Towers, the Burj Al Arab and the Burj Dubai.

We’ve contacted our sources at 2K Games (who are allegedly publishing the game) for an official response, but as yet have received no word.

In the meantime head over to MEGamers to check out the video and wonder along with us what the PR implications for our fair city will be.

Street Fighter IV tournament


It’s time to limber up those digits – Pluto Games is hosting a Street Fighter IV gaming tournament at Wafi City’s E-City on the March 6 and 7, giving gamers from all over the UAE a chance to put their Hadoukens where their mouths are and duke it out for the title of Supreme Button Masher of the Universe. Okay, that last bit may have been made up but there are some fairly swish prizes up for grabs so head over to MEGamers to register if you think you’ve got what it takes to go up against the region’s best.

Halo Wars midnight launch


You read the glowing review in this month’s issue of Stuff, which prompted you to download the demo on Xbox Live and now finally you can line up outside the Virgin Megastore at the Mall of the Emirates with scores of other UNSC faithful for the midnight launch of the hotly-anticipated Halo RTS spin-off on Friday 27th Feb (that’s just after the clock strikes midnight on Thursday, kids).

Head over to MEGamers to register for free Halo goodies with your purchase as well as the chance to win an Xbox 360. Although we hope that you already own one if you’re going to be lining up at all hours of the night to buy this 360-only title.
