F.E.A.R. 2: EPA Trailer

Done up like a near-future sales pitch (think RoboCop’s ED-209), this Elite Powered Armor trailer for F.E.A.R. 2 shows how to cruise the apocalyptic supernatural streets in style.

Ragdoll Cannon: Remake

Ragdoll Cannon: Remake

It won’t be winning any awards for the graphics, but Ragdoll Cannon: Remake is deliciously fun; your objective is to hurl hordes of ragdolls at targets spread across 25 levels.

Burnout: Legendary Cars

Burnout: Legendary Cars

If you thought Burnout: Paradise was finished with the DeLorean, think again: their Legendary Cars pack includes parodies from Ghostbusters, Dukes of Hazzard and Knight Rider.

Trailer: inFamous

Trailer: inFamous

Sucker Punch’s PS3-only superhero game, inFamous, is reminiscent of Prototype; it is however fully open-ended, which means we’ll see plenty of third-person mayhem in our future.

Video: Gouken vs. Akuma

Video: Gouken vs. Akuma

A must-watch for Street Fighter fans, this Gouken vs. Akuma video pits Ryu’s trainer against our favorite red-haired baddie; it’s animated in a gorgeously fluid and artistic sketch style.

Gameplay #2: Prototype

We can’t get enough of these Prototype gameplay clips; the genetically-modified parkour-wielding anti-hero game (due out this summer) looks as sweet as ever, courtesy G4TV.

Gran Turismo Spec III

Gran Turismo Spec III

While we still wish GT 5 Prologue was released in a finished form, we’re still salivating over this video from their Spec III release, which added the Ferrari California and Lotus Evora.

The Zangief Chronicles

The Zangief Chronicles

A funky mix of Borat meets St. Elmo’s Fire meets The Office, The Zangief Chronicles is the only time we’ll admit looking forward to watching a hairy shirtless guy. Thanks, Tommy!

Demo: Cloudwitch

Demo: Cloudwitch

It’s not yet finished or stable, but Project Cloudwitch is a promising indie effort by C2 Estudio; there’s nothing like Robotech-style combat to get our heartrate up. Note: requires Unity Player.

FFXIII Gameplay Pics

Courtesy the fine folks at FinalFantasy-XIII.net: these gorgeous high quality scans are the best we’ve seen of Final Fantasy XIII; they come from a two-page spread from Famitsu.

Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.

Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.

You’ll need to read up on Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. to figure out why Americans are taking out an M1 Abrams, but suffice to say this teaser has our geopolitical panties in a bunch.

Gameplay: Dissidia

Gameplay: Dissidia

If you liked the Dissidia trailer but wanted some more meat, the aerial battle gameplay video above should tide you over: dizzying midair combos with Squall vs. Cloud = epic win.

Gameplay: LOTR Conquest

Gameplay: LOTR Conquest

More Lord of the Rings: Conquest goodness for all you Gondor wannabees: while the graphics may not be jaw-dropping there’s nothing quite like watching Gandalf rush a Balrog head-on.

Left 4 Dead x Randy Savage

Left 4 Dead x Randy Savage

Even if you don’t know Randy Savage by name, you’ll no doubt recognize his “Slip into a Slim Jim!” tv spots, used to hilarious effect in the Macho Madness mod for Left 4 Dead.

Trailer: Zeno Clash

Trailer: Zeno Clash

Filled with surreal landscapes and even more surreal creatures, Zeno Clash is like the spawn of Beetlejuice and Spore; frankly, bashing our way out of a nightmare sounds pretty fun.

White Knight Chronicles

White Knight Chronicles
Buy

Coming to North America sometime in 2009, White Knight Chronicles is a third-person, full-length 100 hour RPG by Level-5; the trailer above is flat-out, jaw-dropping awesome.

Free: Stackopolis

Free: Stackopolis

An oldie but a goodie, Stackopolis lets you build pixel cities using blocks to a Cowboy Bepop-ish soundtrack. Seems easy, until you run out the clock and get your ass handed to you.

Free: The Last Stand

Free: The Last Stand

Yes, it’s yet another zombie game, but The Last Stand had us hooked for a solid hour trying to survive twenty successive waves of the undead; hint: invest in a good weapon early.

Ski Gym

Seriously loaded skiing enthusiasts should check out the Ski Gym, which is essentially a self-contained motion simulator with 18 venues that helps you train for blue, red and black slopes.

Warbeast Guitar

Warbeast Guitar
Buy

It might get us impaled playing Rock Band or Guitar Hero, but that won’t stop us from ogling this PS3 Warbeast Guitar; angles aside, it features a glowing strumbar and faceplates.

Final Fantasy XII Helmet

Final Fantasy XII Helmet
Buy

It’s probably not wearable, but this life-sized Final Fantasy XII helmet will earn you some serious cosplay cred; it’s limited in availability for all you Judge Magister Gabranth fans.

Trailer: Dead Rising

Trailer: Dead Rising

Nothing will ever top the Heidi Kum Guitar Hero commercial, but this trailer for Dead Rising: Chop Til You Drop is pretty freakin cool, in a zombie mobbed, chainsaw flying way.

Trailer: Demon’s Souls

Trailer: Demon’s Souls

We could deal without the continuous operatic wail in the background, but this trailer for Japanese action RPG Demon’s Souls is an absolute eyeful for medieval fantasy fans.

What better way to ring in the new year than with a bid for world domination: Battle Gear offers both offensive and defensive modes, with a vast selection of land, air and sea units.

Free: Tabula Rasa

Free: Tabula Rasa

While it’s not exactly the kind of freebie we like to feature, Richard Garriott’s Tabula Rasa will be free to play until the end of February when the sci-fi MMO gets shuttered.
