It’s tough not to wax nostalgic with Midnight Club: Los Angeles; this trailer stars a properly riced-out 1999 Nissan Skyline tearin’ up Southland asphalt (and the occasional sidewalk).

Although there’s not much sound, this montage-style trailer for WoW’s upcoming Wrath of the Lich King expansion gives a pretty good idea of gameplay and new environments.

Quantum Theory is Asia’s answer to Gears of War, with a predictably pretty looking hero (named “Sid” of all things); it’s also got a bit of Fracture mixed in with deformable environments.

Trailer: Naumachia

The trailer could be clearer, but we like what we see with indie-developed Naumachia, a multiplayer space-combat sim; they’re currently working on the alpha and looking for investors.

Free: GemCraft

Free: GemCraft

GemCraft is a fantasy-oriented Tower Defense game. Towers are upgraded with “gems” which can be mixed to increase potency; if you’re in a bind, lob ’em at enemies and they’ll explode.

Spider-Man: SHIELD Trailer

Spider-Man: SHIELD Trailer
Buy

Most game trailers are pretty run of the mill, but we like this S.H.I.E.L.D trailer for Spider-Man: Web of Shadows; it’s like a public service announcement, albeit with tongue in cheek.

Starcraft 2 Gameplay

It’s what we’ve all been waiting for: more gameplay vids for Starcraft 2. Check out either the Zerg vs. Terran or the Protoss goin’ at the Terrans. The Colossus is weak sauce, btw.

Trailer: Diablo III Wizard

We can never get enough Blizzard news, which is why we’re amped up by this latest trailer for Diablo III that focuses on the wizard class. Hang in there: gameplay is towards the end.

PowerUp Forever

It’s the game that never ends: PowerUp Forever is the 2D space shooter we’ve been praying for, with swarms of enemies and gorgeous graphics; it’s coming to PSN and XBLA this fall.

Free: Warlords Heroes

Above is a walkthrough for Dawn of War 2’s Space Marine campaign; narrated by the lead designer, it talks about use of cover, squad abilities and finishes with a little orbital bombardment.

Trailer: Halo 3 Recon

Trailer: Halo 3 Recon

Although this trailer starts off the same as the Halo 3 Recon teaser we ran earlier, this longer version shows a Spartan hiding from Covenant forces; the expansion won’t be out until Fall ’09.

Trailer: Last Remnant

Trailer: Last Remnant
Buy

Ancient artifacts of incredible power and gigantic swords: yup, The Last Remnant has Square written all over it, but judging from this cool cinematic trailer we’re gonna buy it anyway.

Little Big Planet may be annoyingly cute, but this amazing calculator shows off its engineering potential: it’s made with 610 switches, 500 wires and 430 pistons. Thanks, Devand!

Free: Shift

Free: Shift

SHIFT is somewhat like a two dimensional, spatial version of Braid; we didn’t get the whole black and white scheme until we hit our shift key. Note: also try out Shift 2. Thanks, Darnell!

Free: World Golf Tour

Free: World Golf Tour

World Golf Tour is a beautifully rendered golfing sim, all the more amazing that it’s free and playable online. Based on the Bali Hai course in Vegas, it uses Google Earth-like tech.

Red Alert 3: Superweapons

Red Alert 3: Superweapons
Buy

Red Alert 3 has no nukes due to a glitch in the time continuum, but this superweapons trailer makes up for it with all sorts of explosive goodness; thank god they kept the iron curtain.

Just in case you haven’t picked up your copy of NBA 2K9 (which arrives today), this launch trailer (go Baron!) should seal the deal: those graphics looks damn near realistic.
