THE BEST Games

Assassin’s Creed 2

Assassin’s Creed 2

Masked Venetian revelers are perfect cover in this lush cinematic trailer for Assassin’s Creed 2; it’s basically a Renaissance version of the first one, this time packing hidden guns.

Teaser: Left 4 Dead 2

Teaser: Left 4 Dead 2

The Big Easy turns into the Big Queasy with hordes of undead in this video for Left 4 Dead; it’s a brief teaser, with just enough time to get acquainted with the new quartet of survivors.

Teaser: Halo: Reach

Teaser: Halo: Reach

Oft-mentioned in the Halo mythos but never fleshed-out, the fall of Reach gets its own game; Halo: Reach is due out Fall 2010 and focuses on the events before the first Halo.

Video: Project Natal

Video: Project Natal

We thought this was Wii parody, but Microsoft’s Project Natal is the (pseudo) real deal; hammy paid actors and fake games aside, we’re intrigued by the controller-less interface.

Gameplay: Halo 3: ODST

Gameplay: Halo 3: ODST

We finally get some gameplay to chew on for Halo 3: ODST in the trailer above; Master Chief will be missed, but the revamped graphics and new abilities have us cleaning our battle rifles.

E3: Star Wars: TOR

E3: Star Wars: TOR

No longer hamstrung by that silly “there can be only two” rule, this E3 trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic packs more Sith than you can shake a lightsaber at and is flat-out awesome.

E3 Trailer: Dragon Age

E3 Trailer: Dragon Age

After their Sex & Violence trailer and now this cinematic E3 trailer, it’s becoming clear that BioWare is positioning Dragon Age: Origins as the RPG of choices for badasses everywhere.

Guns Trailer: CoJ BiB

Guns Trailer: CoJ BiB

The NRA has nothing on this guns trailer for Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood; it’s a lead-filled montage of six shooters, bolt action rifles and even a cannon; in other words, “Dy-no-mite.”

E3 Trailer: Nier

E3 Trailer: Nier

Mix Conan the Barbarian with a viral outbreak set in modern times and you have Nier, Square Enix’s latest action adventure game; the trailer above is a mix of gameplay and cinematics.

Space Invaders/Futurama

Space Invaders/Futurama

It looks like Futurama’s Raiders of the Lost Arcade segment, but the video above is an actual game; it includes Fry’s Rush soundtrack, episode clips and a Planet Express Ship cameo.

E3 Trailer: Split/Second

E3 Trailer: Split/Second

Split/Second takes a cue from Burnout (and then some) by turning entire race tracks into demolition derbies; massive buildings collapse around you as you head to the finish line.

Luigi Finally Snaps

Luigi Finally Snaps

Tired of being a sidekick, Luigi airs his dirty laundry with Mario; it’s also a trip down memory lane and covers everything from Dr. Mario to the dreaded Super Mario Bros. movie.

Sony PSP Go

Sony PSP Go

Leaked ahead of E3, the Sony PSP Go is a UMD-less slider with 16GB of memory, Bluetooth and memory slot; it won’t replace the PSP 3000 but will sell side-by-side with it this Fall.

E3 Trailer: The Saboteur

E3 Trailer: The Saboteur

This trailer for The Saboteur reveals little, both in terms of gameplay and censored naughty bits; still, we’re intrigued by setting: it’s an adventure serial-style FPS set in WW2.

Free: Spymaster

Free: Spymaster

It’s in private beta, but we’re chomping at the bit to try Spymaster: it’s a Twitter-based social game where you’ll purchase weapons on the black market and assassinate for hire.

E3 Trailer: Bayonetta

E3 Trailer: Bayonetta

From Devil May Cry’s creator, this estrogen-laden trailer for Bayonetta lays the action on thick (and fast) with top-notch visuals, wicked boss battles and a bevy of Sarah Palin lookalikes.

RB2 Overdrive Pedal

RB2 Overdrive Pedal

If you’re too lazy to tilt your Rock Band 2 controller to kick things into Overdrive, Electro Harmonix’s Overdrive Pedal lets you toe-tap it out with a foot-activated switch and 10′ cable.

E3 Trailer: White Knight

E3 Trailer: White Knight

White Knight Chronicles jumps the gun with this E3 trailer; it’s light on actual gameplay and mixes old and new cinematics, but we’re happy that it’ll be the first true online RPG for the PS3.

Teaser #2: Mass Effect 2

Teaser #2: Mass Effect 2

It may be a teaser, but with a length of over a minute, beautifully epic visuals and a huge character reveal at 0:39, this second video for Mass Effect 2 is full of Geth-slayin’ win.

Trailer: Rabbids Go Home

Trailer: Rabbids Go Home

There’s no place loonier than Luna, which is why Rabbids Go Home has the forever screaming, bushy-tailed psychos building a pile of junk to the moon a-la Katamari Damacy.

Trailer: One Shall Stand

Trailer: One Shall Stand

We’ve seen plenty of Transformers footage, but this One Shall Stand trailer for the game rocks our socks simply for having Peter Cullen do Prime–that, and nearly non-stop action.

Teaser: Natural Selection 2

Teaser: Natural Selection 2

Just like its predecessor, Natural Selection 2 is an aliens vs. marines Half-Life mod; it’s due out this year but we’re drooling over this in-engine teaser, which shows off the playable Onos.

Mario World Board Game

Mario World Board Game

Ashley Buerkett’s Mario World Board Game is more paper than Paper Mario, with a pieces that you’ll need to build yourself; at least you won’t have to worry about power outages.

Numark Scratch Deck

Numark Scratch Deck

Renowned for their real DJ accessories, Numark’s Scratch Deck targets gamers with both PS3 and Xbox 360 flavors; it sports a touch sensitive turntable and 5 Akai-style drum pads.

Star Wars: Elite Squadron

Star Wars: Elite Squadron

It’s official: Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron is coming to the DS and PSP this all; you’ll get to play Luke, Vader and more with 16 players on the PSP and 4 players on the DS.

Monopoly: Recession Edition

Monopoly: Recession Edition

Originally invented in the waning days of the Great Depression, it’d be poetic for Monopoly to release a Recession Edition like the one above, created by the folks at BillShrink.com
