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.
Did you miss out on the Resistance 2 beta? Worry not: the fan video above gets you up to speed; any game that mixes ginormous alien invaders and zombies is fine by us.
In case you missed it: Galaga Legions is now available on XBLA. The 2D shooter gets a heavy graphical upgrade while still remaining true to its roots; 80s kiddos, rejoice.
It’s been three long years since Comic Con 2008, but Castle Crashers is finally launching on Xbox LIVE Arcade. The side-scrolling brawler allows up to four players, either online or locally.
In our minds, gaming enjoyment is directly proportional to how much crap you can blow up. On that front, the upcoming Mercenaries 2 promises to be plenty enjoyable.
Our biggest complaint with the Wii’s white plastic controllers is how dirty they get over time; Joe D’s Vintage Wii Mod concept addresses this with a swank woodgrain on black color scheme.
It’s short, but sweet: this latest teaser for the upcoming Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe is all sorts of awesome. You know life is good whenever Batman gets to slap around Sub-Zero.
Proof that companies have a sense of humor: above is EA’s response to a user who YouTube’d a video showing a Tiger Woods PGA Tour glitch where players could walk on water.
If you think the Need For Speed: Undercover trailer reeks of Fast and Furious, you’re not alone. It splices in game footage with live actors, including Balls of Fury babe Maggie Q.
