Metroid: Other M will be released at the end of this month, and to ramp up the hype, Nintendo turns to one of it’s greatest strengths – tradition. The latest trailer for the game recaps the story so far, from the original Metroid to present day.
PopCap’s legendary tower defense game is coming to XBLA next month, bringing with it 2 player co-op & versus mode(!) and lots of fun-looking extras. Did I mention that you can play as the Zombies?
Yeah, yeah, this is old news, but I don’t care, because the trailer is full of win:
Are you still using Facebook? Of course you are. Well, this October, you will be watching it on the big screen, because Mark Zuckerberg’s story will come to your neighborhood multiplex, courtesy of acclaimed director David Fincher.
A new trailer for the upcoming Nintendo DS game Pokémon Black/White offers a peek into some of the game’s new monsters and new features, including team battles – the trailer showed 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 fights. I wonder if the game will have pokémans so tough that you’ll have to use all six of your monsters at once just to beat one of them.
So you think Pac-Man likes eating those yellow pellets huh? You think the brightly colored maze and ghosts are cute? Think again!
I didn’t know that that yellow wakka wakka wakka-ing mouth is actually a living, breathing person trapped in physical and drug-induced mazes by a cruel man who clearly saw too much of, uhm, Saw!
Between you and me, Tron was a great movie. I really liked it. Unlike some movies, it stands the test of time pretty well. When I recently watched it again, and I wasn’t disappointed. Today, a new Tron Legacy trailer was leaked on the internet in full HD.
Frenetic flaming fights get a lot more complicated when you’re carting one of Rapture’s creepy unchildren around, as the newly released BioShock 2 multiplayer trailer proves… but they still look a lot like regular ol’ Capture the Flag.
Dead Rising had some pretty ridiculous moments, certainly, though they tended to be sandwiched between runs to the bathroom and epic chainsawing sessions filled with flying limbs. For the sequel, it looks like Capcom is taking the craziness a few steps further.
Does every game necessarily need multiplayer? Nah, certainly not, but these days, it’s pretty standard, though the excellent BioShock was allowed to stand on its own as an (amazing) single player experience. For the sequel, however, players get a chance to experience the fall of Rapture firsthand in the new multiplayer mode.
With the definition of just what a game is expanding so rapidly, mellow experiences like Endless Ocean and its forthcoming sequel are beginning to seem absolutely normal. The scuba diving games have an emphasis on exploration and the beauty of the ocean, without a lot of the goals and challenges that crop up in traditional games.
Heavy Rain is more an interactive visual story than a traditional game, which is why it looks like most of the development resources went into the game’s look. They did. But from the newest media, that was money well spent.
Just in case you forgot about LEGO Rock Band, there’s a brand new trailer here to remind you, and to educate you on the epic and destructive fun of replacing traditional demolition with rock.
The little scene that takes place during this gameplay clip is amusing, but it’s really the details that stick out to me, like the bricks on the note highway.
The guys over at Chunnel.TV scrounged up the preview trailer for the original 1982 classic CGI flick, TRON and compared it with the upcoming 2010 reboot, TRON Legacy. There are no surprises here, but the computer graphics in the new film are just a wee bit better.
BioShock 2 doesn’t even exist yet and already the artisans of the world are hard at work on the sequel to 2K’s alternate-history title. A doll fashioned to look like one of the game’s Big Daddy characters was shown in the sequel’s beautiful (and creepy) trailer, and now that same doll has been recreated in loving detail.
