THE BEST Games

Trailer: Harvest

Trailer: Harvest

Oxeye’s Harvest is easily one of the best indie games we’ve played; essentially a gorgeous version of tower defense sans walls, it was recently submitted to the 11th Annual IGF.

Trailer: Black Mesa

Trailer: Black Mesa

Just in time for Half-Life’s 10th anniversary, this trailer for Black Mesa shows off both the devotion and the incredible quality of work coming out of this fan-made Half Life 2 mod.

Resident Evil 5 C.E.

Resident Evil 5 C.E.

Our Japanese counterparts always seem to get the best collector’s editions, and this one for Resident Evil 5 is no different; it comes with a USB drive disguised as a T-virus vial.

Destroy All Humans: PotF

Destroy All Humans: PotF

The Destroy All Humans series has jumped the shark for some, but we’re salivating over Path of the Furon’s improved damage realism, new aerial battles and five open worlds.

Arcade Piggy Banks

Arcade Piggy Banks

Weather tough economic times and simultaneously enjoy some good ol’ coin-op nostalgia with these Arcade Piggy Banks; they’re available in either Tetris or Breakout versions.

Fallout 3: Wasteland Dancin’

Fallout 3: Wasteland Dancin’

More machinima craziness with this Wasteland Dancin’ video for Fallout 3; it uses the “Umpa” mod which basically puts everyone from Mr. Burke to the Enclave in a groovin’ mood.

Trailer: Yakuza 3

Trailer: Yakuza 3

We don’t understand a lick of Japanese, but that doesn’t make this trailer for Yakuza 3 any less cool: it’s a shame that the previous game flopped in the states, as this one will be Japan-only.

Astro Gaming Bags

Astro Gaming Bags

Designed for hardcore Guitar Hero and Rock Band players, Astro Gaming’s Roadie Bag can hold up to two controllers; their Mission Bag can carry a PS3, Xbox 360 or Wii.

Trailer: Savage Moon

Trailer: Savage Moon

As if Defense Grid wasn’t enough, Savage Moon is another Tower Defense-type game. It’s coming soon to PSN with equally amazing graphics and is $10 cheaper than the former.

Video: TF2 Machinima

Video: TF2 Machinima

Team Fortress has always been quirky, but this machinima video turns its zaniness into a virtual art form, with Lord of the Dance like death sequences and tennis with rocket launchers.

Trailer #2: Soldner-X

Trailer #2: Soldner-X

Soldner-X is coming to the PSN 12/4 for $10, and with it they’ve dropped a second trailer to entice lolly gaggers. Nothing too new here: just tons of explosions, but we ain’t complaining.

Free: IncrediBots

Free: IncrediBots

Despite its simple appearance, IncrediBots is surprisingly addictive: use three basic joints and shapes to build everything from Rube Goldberg machines and rag dolls to catapults.

DS Lite Bundle

DS Lite Bundle

Just in time for Black Friday, Nintendo is dropping two DS Lite bundles for those of you yet to join the dual-screened masses: a red New Super Mario Bros. and a blue Brain Age, both for $150.

Prince of Persia: Elika

Prince of Persia: Elika

Simultaneously a hottie and a novel gameplay concept, Prince of Persia’s Elika gets shown off in this new trailer; in many ways, she and the prince use each other as human slingshots.

Free: Mastermind

Free: Mastermind

Megalomaniacs can get their game on with Mastermind: the game lets you put your nefarious plans to work with minions and a secret base; too bad it’s not hidden within a volcano.

Trailer: Defense Grid

Trailer: Defense Grid

Tower Defense fanatics should check out this trailer for Defense Grid: The Awakening; it’s a bit pricey at $20 but if the game is as addictive as it is gorgeous, it will be worth every cent.

Trailer: Arkham Asylum

Trailer: Arkham Asylum

It’s a bit lacking in action, but this trailer for Batman: Arkham Asylum does a good job at showing off the game’s creepy environments; it doesn’t get much funkier than a mental hospital.

Trailer: Wanted

Trailer: Wanted

Video game versions of movies usually leave much to be desired, but this trailer for Wanted looks promising; you’ll get to use the movie’s signature curvy bullet effect. Note: mild f-bomb.

Trailer: Megaman

Trailer: Megaman

A big hat tip to Eddie Lebron, whose low-budget adaptation of Mega Man shows the little guy can make movies worth watching; everything from the acting to the teleporting is dead on.

South Park: Call of Duty

South Park: Call of Duty

South Park has always scored points for relevance (or irrelevance), and the clip above is no different: a classroom turns into a Call of Duty: WaW session. In Cartman’s words: “You got pwned!”

Trailer: Elven Legacy

Trailer: Elven Legacy

Elven Legacy looked like yet another (albeit good-looking) fantasy game, at least until we saw hexes: we’re big turn-based gamers, so we’re eagerly awaiting its Q1 ’09 release.

Gameplay: Agatha Ragata

Gameplay: Agatha Ragata

Even if witches and fantasy gaming aren’t your thing, Oxeye’s Agatha Ragata is worth a look for its immersive music and sound effects; we think the laughtrack is particularly effective.

Trailer: Afro Samurai

Trailer: Afro Samurai

Taking its cell-shaded anime style to the console, we have high hopes for Afro Samurai; it’s coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3 in January. And yes, Samuel L. Jackson will be lending his voice.

Retro Trailer: Resistance 2

Retro Trailer: Resistance 2

We nearly overlooked this idyllic suburbia-style trailer for Resistance 2; it starts off innocuously enough, at least until Chimera crash a grad party and start tearing up the lawn.

Video: Bike Hero

Video: Bike Hero

All we can say is wow: Kevin of Ft. Wayne is a handlebar virtuoso, riding his bike in this Guitar Hero viral marketing video; the song is The Living End’s Prisoner of Society.

Deus Ex 3 Screens

Deus Ex 3 Screens

Ever since Deus Ex hooked us with its cyberpunk gameplay we’ve been hankering for more; this latest concept art for Deus Ex 3 is promising with a heavy whiff of Blade Runner.
