It's quite nasty when you imagine what a sniper's bullet actually does to its victim. Wait right there! Put that imagination away! Thanks to this new new Sniper Elite V2 trailer, you don't even have to pester your brain for a horrible mental image. It shows a man's neck being shot through in slooooow mooootionn, and even provides a handy X-ray cam so you can see precisely which vertebrae is severed by the shot.

Originally, Sniper Elite V2 was only destined for a console release, but Rebellion recently announced that they would be self-funding a PC version, which is great news, because we PC gamers are much better at shooting men in the neck from quite far away than those stick-sluggish console types.


Rage trailer goes KA-CHOOM!

Another Rage trailer, another dozen or so mutants skewered, cooked and decapitated by Rage's devastating armoury. This latest video concentrates on the sound and art of Rage. We've heard plenty before now about id Tech 5's megatexture technology,but it's another thing to see artists poised in front of a glowing bank of screens painting foliage into the world with a pen like GODS. The developers also show off the sound of Rage's shotgun. Personally, I prefer the KA-CHOOM of the sniper rifle. What's your favourite gun sound in gaming?
