In addition to their Explorer line, Microsoft has added BlueTrack tech to their SideWinder X8 gaming mouse, giving it an impressive 4,000 DPI and 30 hours on a single charge.
Sean Cooper’s addictive Boxhead is a free flash game with clean, crisp artwork and waves of zombies; if that wasn’t enough, they also have co-op and death match modes.
Coming 1Q 2009, Plain Sight starts innocently enough with a cute robot gallivanting around a Tron-esque cityscape. That is, until he takes out a sword and starts kicking robot ass.
It’s not as lux as the bespoke Opus Football, but the Diamond Plate Foosball table is still extra swank with diamond plate accents and a built-in MP3 player dock with speakers.
It hasn’t been officially announced, but this Space Marine trailer is going to make a lot of Warhammer 40000 fans happy. Forget RTS games: in-your-face Ork slaughter, all the way!
We have mixed feelings for the chatty Killzone 2 video above; it’s trying to sell the multiplayer aspects of the game, but the absence of foul-mouthed 14 year olds is deafening.
Filled with gorgeous retro-style graphics, Gravitron 2 is a literal blast from the past. Kind of like asteroids with gravity, it’s available for a five-spot; you can try out the demo here.
Coming this November: Gamepark’s GP2X Wiz is a Linux-based handheld game console (read: emulator); we’re digging the OLED touchscreen and 533 MHz 3D accelerator.
Clint Hawking, Far Cry 2 Creative Director, talks shop (above) about immersion. We like the idea: little details like getting into and out of vehicles help to boost realism.
Canyon Defense isn’t the only Tower Defense-style game, but it’s quite fun, with good graphics and futuristic weapons. Our only complaint is that it is a bit easy; more levels, por favor.
We feature a lot of first person shooters and RPGs here, but still enjoy a good strategy game. Empire: Total War is an RTS/turn-based hybrid, with glorious ship battles.
If Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 were ever made into a game, it’d probably resemble Battlefield: Heroes. Banjoes, kilts aplenty, and mimes on fire, all for free later this year: oohh yeah.
Details are sparse for DeathSpank; we do know it’s an adventure RPG made by Ron Gilbert of Monkey Island fame, in conjunction with Hothead of Penny Arcade: OTRSPOD fame.
Talk about sealing the deal: Resistance 2 is getting a Collector’s Edition which includes an awesome 5.5″ DC Universe Chimera Hybrid figure, art book and bonus DVD.
Sonny is a fun and free Flash-based RPG a-la Final Fantasy; you start off as an amnesiac zombie armed with an iron pipe. The production values are surprisingly high.
Airtight Games’ Dark Void isn’t just another first person shooter; the main character is equipped with a jetpack, introducing elements such as vertical cover (see the video above).
Armored Core: For Answer is coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360 on 9/16. The mecha combat simulator will feature larger maps, more detailed damage and multiplayer co-op.
We have to say this trailer for Max Payne (10/17) has us genuinely excited. Games generally don’t translate well to Hollywood (*cough* Mr. Boll); let’s hope for an exception.
October 28th can’t come soon enough; Bethesda recently released five Fallout 3 gameplay vids at PAX. The first one is above, but be sure to check out the remaining four here.
We’ve already seen quite a few of its TV ads lately, but this trailer for the upcoming Infinite Undiscovery has us drooling at the CGI-level gameplay animations. It’s coming 9/2.
A mix of Monty Python and steampunk, Machinarium is a 2D adventure game by indie developers Amanita Design. The trailer above is gorgeous; look for it in the first half of 2009.
Make every day Emergence Day with these amazingly detailed Gears of War action figures by NECA. Series 2 includes Fenix and Santiago, but we most like the Theron Guards.
Scorched Earth and Worms fans will love this trailer for Snowblind Studios’ upcoming XBLA game, Death Tank. It features amped up graphics and 8-player multiplayer (up to 4 locally).
With the low lighting and fast zombies, this Left 4 Dead trailer creeps us out like 28 Days Later. The multiplayer co-op survival horror game hits US shores November 18th.
This latest trailer for the upcoming Spore provides some insights into its Civilization mode. Players get to choose an economic, religious or warlike stance; the latter gets WOMDs.
Mad World has a bloody comic book style that reminds us of Frank Miller’s Sin City; what amazes us is that this gritty game is for the Wii, created by Japanese devs for a U.S. audience.
