By Kathleen Sanders, 07/27/2007 We're finally back from our post-E3 respite and we've got a 1UP Show super-powered by cell processing!

First up, I chat with Ryan O'Donnell and Shane Bettenhausen about my new favorite redhead, Nariko. She's the ass-whooping heroine of Heavenly Sword, and we're all fairly twitterpated by her. Most PS3 owners have been treated to a demo of the game this week, but we've had a chance to play much more and we show it all to you here.

Along with Heavenly Sword we demoed Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. The all-new adventure with our favorite, scrappy Lombax gear head and his dry-witted, robot counterpart Clank hopes to deliver the goods this fall.

Finally, this week our fearless leader Mark MacDonald ventured to the Far East to the Metal Gear Solid 20th Anniversary Party. He chatted with MGS assistant producer Ryan Payton about what's next for the series, starting with Metal Gear Online, the 16-man multiplayer Metal Gear coming to PS3. Mark also sent a ton of amazing footage from the live demo of Metal Gear Solid 4 back to HQ -- MGS psychofans Ryan, Shane, and Bryan Intihar compared notes and shared their impressions.
