Heavy Weapons may look simple but is actually a thinker’s shoot ’em up, with different enemies requiring different weapons; slick graphics and gameplay makes this highly addictive.

Fallen Ones: Diablo 3

Fallen Ones: Diablo 3

It’s not the most exciting trailer, but this video details the various demonic Fallen One creatures you’ll encounter in Diablo 3; you’ll see both concept artwork and character models.

DIY: Katamari Controller

DIY: Katamari Controller

You won’t be rolling up people, cars and cities, but this shiny Katamari Controller by Kellbot is pretty sweet nonetheless; it uses hacked PS2 controllers, Arduino, and an optical mouse.

Launch Trailer: inFAMOUS

Launch Trailer: inFAMOUS

Available 5/26, inFAMOUS gets a proper launch trailer above; it meanders a bit but picks up halfway through, presenting you with the choice of being a badass or just an ass.

Trailer: Modern Warfare 2

Trailer: Modern Warfare 2

After an awesome but cryptic teaser, Modern Warfare 2 finally gets its big reveal; from Brazilian ghettos and medieval redoubts to Russian airbases, this trailer is utterly fantastic.

Multiplayer: Damnation

Multiplayer: Damnation

With ziplines, chasms and ropes, this multiplayer trailer for Damnation hypes its verticality as a game changer; special modes and maps take advantage of its 3D nature.

Multiplayer: Battlefield BC2

Multiplayer: Battlefield BC2

This trailer for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 shows how it’s done: it demos its multiplayer features in one hand and blows the ever-loving crap out of everything in the other. Thanks, Jake!

Gameplay Trailer: X3

Gameplay Trailer: X3

This gameplay trailer for X3: Terran Conflict is an unexpected crowd-pleaser, with hordes of ships, the combat and the Battlestar Galactica-style cinematography and music.

Debut Trailer: Blur

Debut Trailer: Blur

As short and sweet as the name, this debut trailer for Blur goes from zero to obnoxious in about twenty seconds; as Kotaku quips, it’s less a teaser trailer and more a “taser” trailer.

Deadpool: Ultimate Alliance 2

Deadpool: Ultimate Alliance 2

The wisecracking Deadpool is remarkably silent in this Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 trailer, but he doesn’t need words: he lets his fists, grenades and dual-wielded pistols do the talking.

Story Trailer: Darksiders

Story Trailer: Darksiders

Described as “Zelda in Hell,” this Darksiders trailer reveals a familiar plotline (Heaven and Hell do battle on Earth); still, we hope the action-oriented RPG could be what Hellgate never was.

Trailer: Project Trico HD

Trailer: Project Trico HD

From folks who brought us Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, this internal trailer for Project Trico shows promise with faint echoes of The Neverending Story’s Falkor and Atreyu.

It’s been awhile, but the second Timeline trailer for The Old Republic is up (here’s the first); an unlikely ally in the criminal world helps to lift the Mandalorian blockade on Coruscant.

Robot Chicken x Spore

Robot Chicken x Spore

Like kids with matches and gasoline, the Spore devs invite the jokesters at Robot Chicken to create their own Galactic Adventures; bananas in dresses and farting frogs, anyone?

Launch Trailer: Terminator

Launch Trailer: Terminator

It’s amazing what a little voice work, a sweet soundtrack and anti-aliasing can do, but this launch trailer for Terminator: Salvation has our hopes way up for the game; it’s out today.

Trailer: Resonance of Fate

Trailer: Resonance of Fate

We like this new trailer for Resonance of Fate (aka End of Eternity), but it seems to be a bit too American: the last half is filled with fast action sequences and the heavy metal-ish music.

The Sims 3: Trek Parody

The Sims 3: Trek Parody

This Trek Parody is not only a funny spoof of the new Star Trek film, but also shows off The Sims 3 movie mashup tool; it’ll let you boldly go where no machinima has gone before.

Free: Pirate Defense

Free: Pirate Defense

Pirate Defense is yet another tower defense game (and not much of a looker), but gets interesting once you use traps; it takes some getting used to, but is worth the Yarrs and Arghhs.

Halo x Hyrule Map

Halo x Hyrule Map

We initially thought all this ginormous custom Halo PC map of Hyrule needed to be perfect was Link, but it looks like they’ve got that covered, too at 1:06; truly epic, ARKaMAN.

We almost wet ourselves watching this fantastic gameplay trailer for Uncharted 2, set in a war-torn city; Drake’s actions are so expertly blended into the game it feels like a movie.

TF2: Meet the Spy

TF2: Meet the Spy

Spoiler alert: this Meet the Spy video is our favorite out of the other “Meet the…” videos for Team Fortress 2; we won’t ruin the ending, but watch every character closely for their tells.

Mass Effect 2 Prelude

Mass Effect 2 Prelude

While it doesn’t show us everything we want to see, this Mass Effect 2 Prelude in advance of E3 gives away just enough with an emphasis on intense combat and a darker storyline.

Gift Card Puzzle Vault

Gift cards are the ultimate in generic gifts, but this Gift Card Puzzle Vault ensures your friends have to earn it; the ball bearing maze must be solved in order to access the goodies inside.
