This year is going to be great for indie games, and when you combine that with cute, what you end up with is ilomilo. This Swedish platform puzzler rivals Little Big Planet in its cuteness and yet I still have no idea what the gameplay is like other than using two cute characters to move blocks back and forth.

The summer trailer helps to alleviate some of the mystery around the game, giving us a glimpse at the “ilomilo shuffle” which reminds me of the old tile shufflers in which you move tiles around to solve a puzzle. Still, the healthy heap of adorable Southend Interactive is piling on is making ilomilo a must try title for Xbox LIVE later this year.

In the run up to E3 next week, Ubisoft has launched a new teaser website for the forthcoming new entry in the Driver franchise. Tentatively referred to as Driver, the game will mark the first Drivertitle in four years since Driver: Parallel Lines and the first to feature on the current generation of consoles. Details are scarce for the moment, but the website includes a countdown for Ubisoft’s E3 press conference, so expect full details to arise at the event.

In a knowing nod to both the opening cinematic and first level of the original Driver from 1999, the live action trailer features a lone driver putting a classic Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger through a timed challenge around a deserted underground car park.

As a keen follower of the series that brought movie car chases to video games, I can’t tell you how much I’m anticipating its next generation debut. Let’s just hope it has more in common with the original than its increasingly lacklustre successors.

The launch of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is drawing ever closer, and today EA has revealed details of some downloadable content that will be deployed on the day of release.
