Odin Sphere: the rumors, secrets, and hushed talk of the game have now lifted, and what could possibly be the most beautiful 2D game ever created has now been revealed to the world. Developed by Vanillaware - the team behind the legendary Sega Saturn title Princess Crown, and the upcoming PS2 SRPG Grimgrimore - Odin Sphere follows Gwendolyn, the daughter of the demon lord Odin, and four other heroes as they play their parts in an epic struggle of power over control of the nation of Valentine.
When I say that this is one game you'll absolutely want to keep an eye on, trust me on that one.

THIS JUST IN FROM ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY...
Iron Man is the latest Marvel Comics superhero to jump from splash page to big screen. (The film is due May 2008.) Director Jon Favreau (Elf ) began shooting in March with star Robert Downey Jr. — in his first comic-book role — as the man inside the cybernetic Mark III suit (pictured) and Gwyneth Paltrow as his trusted assistant. In the film, Downey plays Tony Stark, a playboy industrialist who decides to don high-tech armor to fight baddies after suffering a life-threatening heart injury in war-torn Afghanistan. ''This is a decidedly adult superhero story,'' says Favreau. (Fanboy FYI: Look for Stark's legendary drinking problem to pop up in possible sequels.)
Faithful to the comics and constructed by Oscar-winning F/X maestro Stan Winston, the Iron Man togs — a far cry from Stark's normal black-tie attire — are robo-cool but make for restrictive, sweaty duds. ''Robert was very bullish on wearing the suit whenever possible,'' says Favreau of his star, who bulked up for the role. ''Now I don't know if he's such a fan of that idea.'
