With Prince of Persia coming out this trailer may be the last, but it’s a good one: it makes true on its “Epic Gameplay” title, with plenty of seat of your pants acrobatics and sword fights.

Uncharted has been called the male version of Tomb Raider, but we’re extra excited over this teaser for Uncharted 2; it’ll premiere 12/14 on Spike TV at the Video Game Awards.

Ozzy Osbourne x WoW

Ozzy Osbourne x WoW

We’ve always loved World of Warcraft’s celebrity commercials, but this one with Ozzy Osbourne is hilarious: it features him “gently” discussing who the true prince of darkness is.

With dozens of glowing reviews, we didn’t think Left 4 Dead could get any cooler; these four pun-laden, movie-style posters have us drooling like zombies on grey matter.

Trailer: Ninja Blade

Trailer: Ninja Blade

This trailer for Ninja Blade is quite possibly the densest one we’ve ever seen: it squeezes in space combat, flying zombie bats, VTOL aircraft, and ninjas with a flare for the theatrical.

Star Trek Online Screens

Star Trek Online Screens

We’re agog over these latest Star Trek Online screenshots, albeit briefly. It’ll be awhile before the MMORPG finishes, so for now we’ll busy ourselves scrubbing plasma conduits.

Trailer: Harvest

Oxeye’s Harvest is easily one of the best indie games we’ve played; essentially a gorgeous version of tower defense sans walls, it was recently submitted to the 11th Annual IGF.

Our Japanese counterparts always seem to get the best collector’s editions, and this one for Resident Evil 5 is no different; it comes with a USB drive disguised as a T-virus vial.

Buy

The Destroy All Humans series has jumped the shark for some, but we’re salivating over Path of the Furon’s improved damage realism, new aerial battles and five open worlds.

Weather tough economic times and simultaneously enjoy some good ol’ coin-op nostalgia with these Arcade Piggy Banks; they’re available in either Tetris or Breakout versions.

Fallout 3: Wasteland Dancin’

Fallout 3: Wasteland Dancin’

More machinima craziness with this Wasteland Dancin’ video for Fallout 3; it uses the “Umpa” mod which basically puts everyone from Mr. Burke to the Enclave in a groovin’ mood.

Trailer: Yakuza 3

Trailer: Yakuza 3

We don’t understand a lick of Japanese, but that doesn’t make this trailer for Yakuza 3 any less cool: it’s a shame that the previous game flopped in the states, as this one will be Japan-only.

Video: TF2 Machinima

Video: TF2 Machinima

Team Fortress has always been quirky, but this machinima video turns its zaniness into a virtual art form, with Lord of the Dance like death sequences and tennis with rocket launchers.

Trailer #2: Soldner-X

Trailer #2: Soldner-X
Buy

Soldner-X is coming to the PSN 12/4 for $10, and with it they’ve dropped a second trailer to entice lolly gaggers. Nothing too new here: just tons of explosions, but we ain’t complaining.

Prince of Persia: Elika

Prince of Persia: Elika

Simultaneously a hottie and a novel gameplay concept, Prince of Persia’s Elika gets shown off in this new trailer; in many ways, she and the prince use each other as human slingshots.

Free: Mastermind

Free: Mastermind

Megalomaniacs can get their game on with Mastermind: the game lets you put your nefarious plans to work with minions and a secret base; too bad it’s not hidden within a volcano.

Trailer: Defense Grid

Trailer: Defense Grid

Tower Defense fanatics should check out this trailer for Defense Grid: The Awakening; it’s a bit pricey at $20 but if the game is as addictive as it is gorgeous, it will be worth every cent.

Trailer: Arkham Asylum

Trailer: Arkham Asylum

It’s a bit lacking in action, but this trailer for Batman: Arkham Asylum does a good job at showing off the game’s creepy environments; it doesn’t get much funkier than a mental hospital.
