Korg Talk Box Mod

Korg Talk Box Mod

For all the Peter Frampton wannabes out there, this quick and dirty mod uses a Nintendo DSI, Korg DS-10 and a bendy straw to alter your voice in a way that’s similar to a talkbox.

Trailer: Tekken 6

Trailer: Tekken 6

Minimal talking, lots of action, and superbikes is just the way we like it: this video for Tekken 6 is basically one long, gorgeous character intro. Note that it cuts out abruptly at the end.

Trailer: Item Getter

If you can ignore the atrocious English, this Item Getter trailer is like watching a Hayao Miyazake film; it’s a DS RPG that allows users to create their own items through alchemy.

Trailer: Parabellum

Currently in closed beta, Parabellum is a free-to-play MMO/FPS; the angst-ridden trailer above gives a quick glimpse into a near-future New York besieged by terrorists.

Free: Auditorium

Free: Auditorium

Auditorium is an intensely atmospheric musical instrument game with puzzle elements, with the payoff being a coherent piece of music; it’s best understood by simply playing it.

Gameplay: Meteos Wars

Gameplay: Meteos Wars

Much loved on the DS, Meteos Wars is making its way to XBLA this Wednesday; it’s basically a falling blocks game oft compared to Lumines, except it depends on speed and reflexes.

World of Goo Tour

World of Goo Tour

This World of Goo Design Tour video lets us see a game through the eyes of another developer, specifically David Rosen of Wolfire; we think it’s a must see for aspiring game designers.

DoW II: Blood Ravens

DoW II: Blood Ravens

Dawn of War II is one of those games that gets better every time we see it; this Blood Ravens trailer focuses on our favorite marines as they slash, snipe and slaughter for the Emperor.

Bit Museum: Early Nintendo

Bit Museum: Early Nintendo

Gamer Jason Cirillo is a goldmine of historical gaming trivia, with the Bit Museum video above as fascinating as it is freewheeling. Nintendo used to sell playing cards? Funky!

Trailer: Trine

Trailer: Trine

Not only is Trine one of the prettiest platformers we’ve seen, it looks pretty fun too; it reminds us of a side-scrolling version of Diablo, with puzzles and physics-based objects.

Fallout 3 vs. Reality

Fallout 3 vs. Reality

GameRadar has put together a fun little comparison between Fallout 3 and real-life D.C.; the verdict: Bethesda got things pretty darned close, albeit with some artistic license.

Trailer: Red Faction

Let freedom ring with Red Faction: Guerilla’s latest trailer; the rebels use everything from giant hammers and mining equipment to mechs to hit back at their EDF oppressors.

Gameplay Video: Wanted

Wanted’s latest trailer reveals more of the gameplay; based on the Jolie/Freeman assassin movie, there’s a clear focus on the use of cover (think GoW) and curved bullet shots.

Rise of the White Wolf

Rise of the White Wolf

The Witcher is making his debut on consoles, and this Rise of the White Wolf trailer gives us a sneak peek; no gameplay, but the mock swordplay in the cinematic is plenty sweet.

Book: Arcade Mania

Book: Arcade Mania

Kotaku’s Brian Ashcraft puts his time spent in Japan to good use with Arcade Mania; it explores the land of the rising sun’s game centers and the powerful hold gaming has on Japanese culture.

Real Life Mario Kart

Real Life Mario Kart

Saying French prankster Rémi Gaillard has a pair of big ones is a big understatement; watch what he pulls at the end of this real life Mario Kart video: Remi my man, you are a god.

Trailer: Ghostbusters

Trailer: Ghostbusters

Venkman, Egon, Ray and Winston, oh how we’ve missed thee: this Ghostbusters trailer is powered mostly by nostalgia and ectoplasm, but we don’t care; who you gonna call?

Riddick: Dark Athena

Riddick: Dark Athena

We think we’ve finally figured out why the Riddick series has done so well with this fresh Assault on Dark Athena video: Vin Diesel’s gravely voice makes anything sound badass.

Persia: Epic Gameplay

Persia: Epic Gameplay

With Prince of Persia coming out this trailer may be the last, but it’s a good one: it makes true on its “Epic Gameplay” title, with plenty of seat of your pants acrobatics and sword fights.

Teaser: Uncharted 2

Teaser: Uncharted 2

Uncharted has been called the male version of Tomb Raider, but we’re extra excited over this teaser for Uncharted 2; it’ll premiere 12/14 on Spike TV at the Video Game Awards.

Ozzy Osbourne x WoW

Ozzy Osbourne x WoW

We’ve always loved World of Warcraft’s celebrity commercials, but this one with Ozzy Osbourne is hilarious: it features him “gently” discussing who the true prince of darkness is.

Gears of War Armor

Nightmare Armor Studios is making their much lusted after Gears of War armor and weapon replicas available for purchase; these 1:1 scale replicas will be sold by Project Triforce.

With countless carpal tunnel and Nintendinitis casualties, Supermandolini’s Console Wars Veterans medals give credit to our valiant fallen digital Nintendo and PlayStation warriors.

Left 4 Dead Posters

Left 4 Dead Posters

With dozens of glowing reviews, we didn’t think Left 4 Dead could get any cooler; these four pun-laden, movie-style posters have us drooling like zombies on grey matter.

Trailer: Ninja Blade

Trailer: Ninja Blade

This trailer for Ninja Blade is quite possibly the densest one we’ve ever seen: it squeezes in space combat, flying zombie bats, VTOL aircraft, and ninjas with a flare for the theatrical.

Star Trek Online Screens

Star Trek Online Screens

We’re agog over these latest Star Trek Online screenshots, albeit briefly. It’ll be awhile before the MMORPG finishes, so for now we’ll busy ourselves scrubbing plasma conduits.
