THE BEST Games

Trailer: Faith City

Trailer: Faith City

This latest “Faith City” trailer for Mirror’s Edge focuses on the classic security vs. freedom debate. It’s a cell-shaded masterpiece, enough so we wish the actual game looked like this.

WaW Collector’s Edition

WaW Collector’s Edition

The canteen and metal box aren’t anything special, but one week’s worth of Double XP for buyers of Call of Duty: World at War Collector’s Edition may make it worth it for some.

Trailer: Damnation

Trailer: Damnation

Mixing steampunk with concepts of verticality, we’re really looking forward to Damnation. It’s a cross between Dark Void and Mirror’s Edge, so expect to do a lot of jumping and climbing.

Free: light-Bot

Don’t have money for a Femisapien? light-Bot is a free puzzle game with a simple premise: program a robot to move across a grid in the most efficient way possible (hint: use functions).

MotorStorm: Pacific Rift

MotorStorm: Pacific Rift

One look at the “Crash Carnage” label for this MotorStorm: Pacific Rift trailer and we knew it was pure gold; it makes road rage on a Los Angeles freeway look like a ballerina class.

Trailer: EndWar

Trailer: EndWar

This latest “Combat Chain” trailer for Tom Clancy’s WW3 RTS, End War, briefs players on various unit classes. Not much gameplay, but you won’t have to wait long: it’s coming 11/4.

Resistance 2 has a slew of new gameplay videos out; our favorite one has the player trying to take out a massive Chimera Goliath. Be sure to stop by Joystiq to see the rest of them!

Trailer: Winterbottom

Trailer: Winterbottom

Coming out of USC’s Interactive Media unit, The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom is like Braid on crack. If you’ve ever wanted to literally kick your own ass, you can do it here.

Wario Land: Shake It

Wario Land: Shake It

This is not your standard YouTube video: this ad for Wario Land: Shake It is pure genius. We’ll leave out the details for you, but let’s just say your GUI elements don’t stand a chance.

Tank Universal

Tank Universal

We were never big fans of Tron, but indie-developed Tank Universal gives those neon polygons a nice coat of glow paint with particle effects and 20 levels of tank-on-tank combat.

Gameplay: Fracture

Gameplay: Fracture

Fracture’s deformable terrain makes us wonder if it’s a one trick pony, but this gameplay demo shows off some of the coolest weapons we’ve seen since Half Life 2’s Gravity Gun.

Free: Lock’s Quest

Free: Lock’s Quest

This is a free flash port of Lock’s Quest; defend your base against increasingly difficult waves of Clockwork baddies, all the while upgrading and repairing to stay alive. Thanks, Blake!

Trailer: Battle Fantasia

We frankly have no idea what they’re saying or what the heck they’re wearing, but Battle Fantasia’s superpowers and combos bring back fond memories of days spent in arcades.

Brunswick Billiards’ Manhattan Pool Table is designed for the billiard elite, with Ebony or Mother Of Pearl sights, 1″ slate and stainless steel legs. Available in both 9 ft and 8 ft. sizes.

Free: Mallet Mania

Free: Mallet Mania

Mallet Mania is a simple golf/putting game which is perhaps why it’s so addictive; sharp graphics reminiscent of Q*Bert and innovative levels make this a great time waster at work.

Free: Goo

Free: Goo

Goo is like Katamari in 2D with better graphics; although more a tech demo than a game, it’s pretty fun. It recently won Best Threaded Game at the Intel Game Demo Contest.

Free: Blast Passage

Free: Blast Passage

Warning: you may waste an incessant amount of time on Blast Passage. This Flash freebie remixes Bomberman and Gauntlet; even multiplayer is old school: four players, one keyboard.

Red Alert 3 Dance Party

Red Alert 3 Dance Party

Just when we didn’t think Red Alert 3 could get any campier, they release this remix trailer, with George Takei saying “‘All your base…” and Jenny McCarthy making very suggestive noises.

Portal: Prelude is an unofficial prequel to Portal, leading up to the creation of GlaDOS with 8 chapters and 48 challenges. It’s set to be released later this month; until then, sing a song.

Trailer: Feist

Trailer: Feist

Feist is a quirky little Mac-only jumping game, developed with the Unity engine by Florian Faller and Adrian Stutz. We’ve given it a spin and find it to be simple yet strangely hypnotic.

Gears of War 2: Weapons

Gears of War 2: Weapons

As if the last GameStop trailer wasn’t enough, this trailer for Gears of War 2 goes into details about the new weapons and execution animations. About the latter: freakin’ awesome.

Atari Modern Classics

Atari Modern Classics

Those of us old enough to remember the Atari 2600 will love these Atari Modern Classics pictures from The -Minus World; they’re a wonderful take on retro package design.

Trailer: Stormrise

Trailer: Stormrise

Stormrise (Xbox360, PS3) is a difficult game to peg, as it’s an RTS with a first person viewpoint. The latest trailer above showcases its squad-based combat; damn do we love snipers.

Trailer: Bob’s Game

Trailer: Bob’s Game

In an age of multimillion-dollar budgets, Bob’s Game stands out: this DS game was solely created by Robert Pelloni over the course of five years, pouring over 15,000 hours into it.
