We could’ve done without the emo music, but this launch trailer for Tomb Raider: Underworld beautifully shows off the game’s lush environments and unique boss battles.

Free: Light Heroes

Free: Light Heroes

Take R-Type, mix it liberally with Dragonball Z and you’ll get Light Heroes, a side-scrolling shoot ’em up with a surprising amount of upgrades; warning: your clicking finger will hurt.

Prince of Persia Trailers

Prince of Persia Trailers

Rock, Paper, Shotgun has a trio of Prince of Persia trailers up; suffice to say, they’re all good, but our favorite is the story trailer, which although lengthy at 5 minutes is absolutely gorgeous.

Blizzard: Echoes of War

For Blizzard fanatics: Echoes of War; is an orchestral soundtrack with 90 minutes of music from StarCraft, WarCraft and Diablo, and will be available in standard and legendary editions.

Free: Mirror’s Edge 2D

Free: Mirror’s Edge 2D

Mirror’s Edge 2D is a terrific side-scrolling version of the original game, although it’s limited to one stage. It takes getting used to but hang on to that S key for some glorious airtime.

Gameplay: Bionic Commando

Gameplay: Bionic Commando

This trailer for Bionic Commando eschews cinematics and exposition for good ol’ fashioned gameplay; we’re positively stoked at how fast-paced and action-packed this game looks.

Kingdom Under Fire II

Kingdom Under Fire II

This Kingdom Under Fire II trailer looks like an epic Lord of the Rings battle; the fact that it’s a massively multiplayer RTS has us chomping at the bit for more. It’ll drop sometime in 2009.

Left 4 Dead: Minigun

Left 4 Dead: Minigun

As if we hadn’t been sold long, long ago on Left 4 Dead, this minigun gameplay video is icing on the cake. Bloody, bloody icing with lots of carnage, but tasty icing nonetheless.

LBP x Mirror’s Edge

LBP x Mirror’s Edge

With Mirror’s Edge out, players may experience a strange feeling of deja vu with this LBP mashup video; totalitarian governments are no match for the cutest runners on earth.

Snoopy: WWI Flying Ace

After years of rooftop piloting, Snoopy’s dreams have finally come true: we’re rooting for the little guy, as he’s got his own WWI Flying Ace game with a 2010 release date.

Free: StarBaron

Free: StarBaron

Those of us still waiting for a true Master of Orion successor should check out StarBaron; it’s a space-themed RTS that isn’t too complex, making it ideal for a lunch break romp.

Street Fighter II: The Best

Street Fighter II: The Best

Joe Esposito crooning You’re The Best to a Street Fighter II gameplay montage just seems transcendent; we can only hope the Capcom gods deign to include this in-game one day.

Tritton AX Pro Headphones

Tritton AX Pro Headphones

Gamers are raving over these Tritton AX Pro Headphones, which sport eight (!) front, rear and subwoofer speakers, direct optical in and a USB connection for voice chat.

Free: Quick Fire Pool

Free: Quick Fire Pool

Quick Fire Pool does away with opponents and pits you against the timer; basically, pocket as many balls as you can in a given time, with extra time and points for special moves.

MotorStorm: Features Trailer

MotorStorm: Pacific Rift is shaping up to be an awesome party game; this trailer shows off 4-player split screen, wicked avatar customization and hair-singeing jumps over lava.

Eve: Quantum Rise

Eve: Quantum Rise

This Eve Online trailer for the Quantum Rise expansion lays it on thick, with “breaking news” of a surprise invasion. The real star of the show: enhanced stability and gameplay tweaks.

levelHead

levelHead

levelHead isn’t new, but this crisp Vimeo video does a much better job at showing off the spatial memory game; it uses a Sony Eyetoy, solid plastic cubes and runs on Ubuntu and Debian.

Mega Man Stop-Motion

Mega Man Stop-Motion

Made with AfterEffects in only 20 hours, this Mega Man stop motion video by Nicolas Menard features paper cutters of death, dangerous Oreos and a hat tip to classic Nintendo controllers.

Street Fighter IV: Seth

Street Fighter IV: Seth

Move over, M. Bison: Street Fighter IV boss Seth is the Silver Surfer with a bad case of villainous exposition; however, we can’t help but think his reliance on magic is a bit of a cop-out.
