A less violent, more vertically oriented version of Bionic Commando, Frost Bite 2 uses a grappling hook that lets you catapult your way up walls and cliffs; it also doubles as a weapon.

The result of a collaboration between theory11 and WA007, these Propaganda playing cards not only fan and snap well but feature fresh, military-style artwork ala Shepard Fairey.

Intro: Skate 2

Intro: Skate 2

Skate 2’s intro movie is a who’s who of pro skateboarders, with everyone from Rob Dyrdek and Big Black to Jerry Hsu; it’s pretty well directed, even with the quirky prison setting.

Trailer: Mafia II

Trailer: Mafia II
Buy

Like GTA IV sans any pretenses of doing good, we hope Mafia II will be half as fun as the premier trailer above; it’s a nice 50s pastiche of car chases, gunfights and Little Richard.

Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2

Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2

Available 12/18 in Japan (Q1, USA), Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2 may be the bastard child of two franchises, but hordes of enemies + mecha + tweaked AI = one sexy bastard.

Trailer: God of War 3

Trailer: God of War 3

We’re skeptical about God of War 3’s “Everything must come to an end” tagline (profit equals endless sequels), but Kratos packin’ a pair of armored wolf gloves is pure awesome.

It’s too bad Gamerox is for kids: this flexible chair allows gamers to really get into a game without fear of falling on their hineys while exercising their back and stabilizer muscles.

No, not that Terminator; this dark and foreboding trailer, revealed at last night’s Spike VGA Awards, gives us hope that this videogame adaptation of the upcoming movie won’t suck.

SimCraft APEX SC830

SimCraft APEX SC830

SimCraft’s APEX SC830 is about as close as gamers can get to racing without actually driving; its tubular aluminum frame lets you roll, pitch and yaw while seated in Recaro chairs.

Free: Minotaur China Shop

Free: Minotaur China Shop

Minotaur China Shop takes a bad career choice and turns it into an unusual physics-based game; it’s a bit like walking on pins and needles, but the Rage mode is strangely satisfying.

Trailer: Uncharted 2

Trailer: Uncharted 2

After last month’s cryptic teaser, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves has a full length trailer up; unfortunately from the moment Nathan Drake wakes up, things go downhill–literally.

Before Azeroth and Middle Earth was Camelot; King Arthur aims to give this legendary medieval fantasy its dues, with an RTS that reminds us of Total War in terms of its epic scope.

Diablo 3 Screens

Diablo 3’s more colorful palette is slowly growing on us; this set of five new screens is positively electric, as it beautifully shows off the lighting effects inside the dungeon levels.

Trailers: FF XIII + Versus

Trailers: FF XIII + Versus

Final Fantasy’s next installments are bordering on vaporware, but these two trailers should tide us over a bit: FF XIII’s video is uplifting, but we prefer the grittier feel of FF Versus XIII.

Trailer #2: Arkham Asylum

Unlike the first video, this latest trailer for Batman: Arkham Asylum shows actual characters, including The Joker and Batman; however, like the first video it’s still pretty short.

Free: Boomshine

Free: Boomshine

If you liked Auditorium, chances are you’ll also find Boomshine interesting; you’re only allowed one shot per level to start a musical chain reaction that, when properly timed is very satisfying.
