THE BEST Games

Monsterpocalypse

Monsterpocalypse

Tabletop gamers, rejoice: Monsterpocalypse is a fully-fleshed out gaming system with plenty of giant mecha and kaiju; they even have nuke reactors and highrises to demolish.

Ad: Lightsaber Duels

The Nunchuck as a Lightsaber is as natural as bees on honey, but this Lightsaber Duels ad is packed with so much nerd repartee that you’ll either LOL or throw your Wii Remote at the TV.

Killzone 2: Helghan Trailer

Killzone 2: Helghan Trailer

Amidst all the Fallout 3 and Resistance 2 news, we didn’t forget Killzone 2: it’s got a sweet new trailer out that focuses on our favorite fascist red-eyed baddies, the Helghast.

Total War Campaign Mode

With each trailer, Empire: Total War grows more epic; this one covers the campaign mode and stretches from the French to the American Revolutions; the game comes out 2/09.

Free: Zombie Baseball

Zombie Baseball combines two American pastimes: baseball and beheading the undead. Rapunzel lofts pitches from above while you slug it out below, with bonus points for decapitation.

Space Invaders Cufflinks

Space Invaders Cufflinks

We really dig these Space Invaders Cufflinks; they’re simple and straightforward, made with sterling silver and feature a mirror-polish base. The invaders themselves are menacing in matte.

Gene Simmons Axe Guitar

Gene Simmons Axe Guitar

Gene Simmons is our hero–guitar hero, that is. This Axe Guitar (Wii, PS3/PS2) works with both GH and RB and takes badassery to a whole new level; its got both a strum and whammy bar.

Fallout Retrospective

Fallout Retrospective

With Fallout 3 in stores today, bone up on your post-nucular mythology with this Retrospective trailer by GameTrailers.com; it runs 15 minutes and does have some spoilers.

Free: Physics Invader

Free: Physics Invader

Physics Invader may not look like much at first, but it’s actually been coded to simulate physical laws, complete with falling debris that can block your shots (and act as impromptu shields).

Guitar Hero All-Star Ad

Guitar Hero All-Star Ad

We’re man enough to confess our man crushes, but this Guitar Hero: World Tour ad is almost too much; it’s got Tony Hawk, Michael Phelps, A-Rod and Kobe doing Risky Business in their skivvies.

X3: Terran Conflict

X3: Terran Conflict

It’s been two years since the X3 series has seen an update; X3: Terran Conflict is available at Steam as a standalone expansion, and judging from the sweet trailer above it’s a winner.

Logitech Guitar Hero

Logitech Guitar Hero

Logitech has finally weighed in with its own wireless Guitar Hero controller, and it’s a looker: materials include a rosewood fingerboard and metal frets. Also: a Neck Slider for World Tour.

Video: Big Bang Mini

Video: Big Bang Mini

Add Big Bang Mini to your “play while drunk” list: it’s a crazed version of Galaga, with 100 levels of clowns, monkeys and superheroes that explode like a mega July 4th/New Year’s party.

Red Alert 3 Babes

Red Alert 3 Babes

You’ve likely caught glimpses of those smokin’ Red Alert 3 babes, but EA has finally done us a favor and combined them onto a single wallpaper. Waging war is officially teh sex.

Red Alert 3: Units

Red Alert 3: Units

This latest gameplay trailer for Red Alert 3 gives a sneak peek into its many new units; Tanya apparently time travels, but there’s nothing more badass than the Empire’s Shogun Executioner.

Dead Space: Dying Video

Dead Space: Dying Video

Spoiler alert: this ten minute Dead Space video is packed with all the myriad ways you can die in the game; if you don’t feel like hurling your previous meal, take a pass.

Free: Kings Island

Free: Kings Island

Kings Island is basically a free online version of Diablo, down to the gothic fonts; the plot is a bit WTF (you’re supposed to battle farmers and farm girls) but it’s still nicely polished.

Metroid: Confrontation

Metroid: Confrontation

Metroid: Confrontation is a tech demo for AM2R, a Metroid II fan remake by DoctorM64; while the full version is still in the works, the demo is plenty playable and available for download.

Endwar DS/PSP

Endwar DS/PSP

Tom Clancy’s EndWar is available for nearly every platform under the sun, but we actually like the simplified DS and PSP versions most; they’re turn-based with 20 units per faction.

Midnight Club LA: Launch

Midnight Club: Los Angeles is now available and with it this launch trailer, which essentially acts as a grand tour of Southern California. The only problem? Traffic is never this light in LA.

Free: Minesweeper

Free: Minesweeper

It’s been ages since we played Minesweeper on the PC; this free Flash version is a nice update, with a Wild West setting (of all places). Not revolutionary, but it’s a fun time waster.

Trailer: Dragon Quest IX

Trailer: Dragon Quest IX

Although it’s not scheduled for release stateside, this Dragon Quest IX trailer really wowed us with the DS’ graphic abilities; the game features co-op multiplayer and turn-based combat.
