If your workplace insists on shirts and ties, these Classic Video Game Ties let you flaunt your 8-bit gamer cred while adhering to dress code; the Asteroids tie won’t even raise an eyebrow.

Free: Totem Destroyer 2

Free: Totem Destroyer 2

Like a backwards version of Tetris, Totem Destroyer 2 tasks you with exploding blocks to move a breakable totem to the ground; it’s not for the trigger happy, however, as patience is key.

Trailer: Splatterhouse

Trailer: Splatterhouse

Make no illusions: Splatterhouse is a gory, gory remake with grotesque monsters, nightmarish levels, and a hockey-masked protagonist who has a propensity for losing limbs.

Trailer: FEAR to FEAR 2

Trailer: FEAR to FEAR 2

If you’ve been wondering how FEAR 2 ties into the original game’s storyline, the trailer above fills in the blanks; with Alma unleashed, things go from badly wrong to horribly wrong.

Preview: H.A.W.X.

Preview: H.A.W.X.

8-player deathmatches, in-game cash for upgrades and air battles over Chicago: this preview for H.A.W.X. outlines the basic plot as well as goes into detail explaining game mechanics.

Teaser: Transformers RotF

Teaser: Transformers RotF

Yeah, it’s a pretty short video, and yeah, it’s about the game (not the movie), but this Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen teaser scores major points for being narrated by the voice of Prime.

Rule 2 Trailer: Ghostbusters

Rule 2 Trailer: Ghostbusters

Mixing clips from the movie, this Ghostbusters Rule 2 trailer is less about the actual rule (“Don’t look directly into the trap!”) and more about showing off those amazing energy streams.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2

Okay, so the plot is an X-Men rehash, but this “Taking Sides” trailer for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 has us salivating over new power combos and a heavily upgraded game engine.

Trailer: Battlefield 1943

Trailer: Battlefield 1943

Summer can’t come soon enough with this explosive trailer for Battlefield 1943; for the uninitiated, it’s a multiplayer-only game set in the Pacific Theater of WWII with up to 24 players.

Free: Shopping Cart Hero

Free: Shopping Cart Hero

Kids, Shopping Cart Hero is actually a sophisticated physics teaching tool. That, and it lets you launch a rocket-powered cart with three of your buddies inside while you do a superman.

Preview: White Knight

Preview: White Knight

While the cinematic and gameplay trailers were nothing short of awesome, this narrated GTTV preview for White Knight helps to fill in the blanks for the upcomingPS3 exclusive RPG.

CellFactor: Psychokinetic

CellFactor: Psychokinetic

It’s been called Unreal Tournament Lite, but CellFactor: Psychokinetic Wars is worth a look with a seemingly endless array of psionic abilities; it’s coming to XBLA and PSN this month.

Terminator 4: T-600

Terminator 4: T-600

We have a feeling Arnold would look positively puny next to his gigantic, chaingun-wielding T-600 predecessor, teased above from the upcoming Terminator: Salvation video game.

Coke Classic Avatars Ad

Coke Classic Avatars Ad

Hidden amongst a sea of mediocre Superbowl Ads was this gem for Coke Classic; it pokes fun at our online personas without getting too preachy; life really is the ultimate MMORPG, no?

The Halo Vibe

The Halo Vibe

This Halo Vibe video for Halo Wars scores buko bucks with sweet cinematics in the intro, and then relentlessly expounds on the awesomeness of Spartans; we ain’t complaining.

Trailer: RA Uprising

Trailer: RA Uprising

Red Alert: Uprising looks plenty sweet with wrestler Ric Flair and Heroes’ Malcolm McDowell; however, we’re most looking forward to Yuriko Omega’s Diablo-esque missions.

D-Pad Hero

D-Pad Hero

Proof that you don’t need gobs of CPU power and memory to rock out, D-Pad Hero is a sweet little 256KB ROM that runs on a NES emulator; think Guitar Hero or Rock Band in 8-bit.

Unbeatable Pong Robot

Unbeatable Pong Robot

Armed with a Logitech Webcam and solenoid fingers, this Unbeatable Pong Robot is actually pretty creepy; let’s hope its skill set doesn’t expand to, say, enslaving humanity.

Free: The Tower

Free: The Tower

The last thing we need is a Defense game to consume our time, but The Tower proved too much to resist; your goal: protect a “heart” block using a variety of defensive blocks and spells.

Trailer: Wolverine (Game)

Trailer: Wolverine (Game)

We can’t wait to see the Wolverine movie, so we’re happy to say that this trailer for the video game is equally promising; Logan really takes out a can of whoop ass in this one.

Free: Divine Generals

Free: Divine Generals

Most of the free games we feature are quick and dirty, but Divine Generals is a strategy game a-la Civilization with armies, buildings and research; in short, plan on a long lunch break.

The plot for Red Faction gets a comprehensive workup in the full trailer above; we’re most impressed by its cinematic qualities, which are on par with previews we’d see in a movie theater.

Real Working Warthog

Real Working Warthog

Made for a Halo movie pitch that went nowhere, this full-sized Warthog replica is every Master Chief’s dream; it actually works, with a turbo 6 cylinder engine and four wheel drive.

Full Trailer: Blood Bowl

Full Trailer: Blood Bowl

Just in time for today’s big game, Blood Bowl has finally dropped a full trailer; nothing mind blowing here, but tons of bone crunching; who knew dwarves had a running game?

If you’ve got both the room and the cash to spare, this 1:4 scale, 18″ Ken statue is the perfect way to impress your Street Fighter obsessed girlfriend. Yes, the inflatable rubber one.

Breakout Trailer: Batman

Breakout Trailer: Batman

While previous trailers for Batman: Arkham Asylum have been annoyingly vague or artsy, this breakout video has us positively stoked in a way we haven’t felt since Dark Knight.
