The enigmatic Final Fantasy XII disappointed gamers everywhere by not making an appearance at E3 2005. Fortunately, we\'ve gotten hold of a crop of new screens, which demonstrate that FFXII will definitely be another gorgeous endeavor. And the hints we saw in 2004 of an action-rpg approach to combat, as well as a revamped summons system, have only made us more curious about what the Final Fantasy franchise has in store for us. Check out these screens for 14 more reasons to get stoked.

Dead Rising for Xbox 360 puts you in the role of a photographer in a mall. But you\'re not looking for the local Ritz camera; hordes of the undead are descending upon the mall, and you\'ve got to use whatever you have at hand, including your camera (and cameras aren\'t exactly zombie killing machines). And when we say hordes, we mean hundreds and hundreds. Get more on Dead Rising right here.

In gaming there are a few big families, and the EA family is certainly one of the biggest. So it\'s fitting that they head up the interactive debut of another \"family\"-oriented entertainment franchise: The Godfather. We\'ve got an armload of new screens hot from EA, so check them out here.

Earth 2160 is the sequel to the cult hit Earth series, developed by Reality Pump Games. Midway has picked it up, and will publish the title in the US in November for PC. This is more than a traditional real-time strategy game, and with a laundry list of features, Earth 2160 looks to be one for strategy fans to keep an eye on. Check out the latest screens here.

Marc Ecko\'s Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure has already been drawing fire for encouraging graffiti. We\'re sure parents and squares everywhere will rise up in protest of this latest affront on the sterile safety environment they try to build around the youth. But as for us, we\'re going to be practicing our can control and stealth action for when this bad boy hits stores in November.

One of the more interesting items shown at E3 2005 was an early build of Tactica Online. This massively multi-player title separates itself from the dozens of other online games in a number of ways, not the least of which is that it\'s a turn-based strategy game in the likes of Fallout, Jagged Alliance, or X-Com. From gameplay to business strategy (Tactica won\'t charge monthly fees) Tactica Online is trying to be something different. We\'ve picked up a few screenshots of an early build, and it\'s looking pretty interesting.

This year the Birdman\'s adventures take him to a seamless model of LA. But how can that fit into a wee little handheld like the Nintendo DS? Make a different game. Tony Hawk\'s American Sk8land is a totally different game, cel-shaded, and still features all the character customization and online muliplayer capabilities we\'ve come to expect from the bigger Hawk experience. Check out the latest screens here.

Bizarre Creations\' Studio Updates has offered another interesting screenshot from Project Gotham Racing 3. The image shows the Xbox 360 running Project Gotham Racing 3 with a spectator crowd of 35,000 people at one time. Each spectator is individually created, making them far more than the simple cardboard cutouts that traditionally appear in this generation\'s racing titles. Apparently the system handled the task without slowing down in the slightest. The screen is from a technology test performed by one of the PGR3 team just to see how much the Xbox 360 could handle. Not bad. Of course, you won\'t be finding 35,000 spectators per track in the actual game, but it\'s nice to see what the system is capable of.

While some of us can\'t wait to get our hands on the official release of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, others can\'t wait to get their hands on the map and quest maker. The PC version of the title will ship with a level editor that allows fans of the series to create their own stories and levels independent of the original storyline, just as Elder Scrolls III did. Bethesda and 2K Games have released screenshots of the upcoming editor, and the shots should be of interest to gamers with a creative streak and a desire to make worlds instead of just play in them.

Due in October, Vicarious Visions\' PSP version of X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse looks to be a game well worth watching. The PSP has been in a serious drought lately, with lackluster titles and very few of them. It\'s a Nintendo-like wasteland of early development for PSP owners. But X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse could be a breakout hit this Fall, especially of it features a robust (and infrastructure) WiFi mode.
