Discuss in talkback!

Check out telepathic bad-ass Nick Geller in our new movie of the game!

Midway has just announced their new Metal Gear-type title, ESPionage, and Planet GameCube has the first movie of the game! In the movie, you can see the hero, Nick Geller, use his Psi powers to see through walls, set people on fire, and lift baddies into the air. He also does something pretty damn cool at the end... but you're going to need to download the movie and see it for yourself!

Enter the news story to enter the link, then enter the sweet trailer.

After watching this trailer, it appears that the Enter the Matrix game is going to be pushed as hard as the two movies due out this summer and fall.

Using bits of story from the Animatrix movies (such as The Final Flight of the Osirus), and the paralleling the Matrix Reloaded, the trailer claims that what you do in the game will affect the plot of the movies. Whatever that means exactly is a mystery.
