Guitar Hero: Heidi Klum

Guitar Hero: Heidi Klum

If the last Guitar Hero: World Tour trailer was a bit too testosterone-loaded, this video with a smokin’ Heidi Klum should restore balance to the force; not responsible for dropped jaws.

Gameplay: Demigod

Gameplay: Demigod

GPG’s Demigod isn’t an easy game to define–an RTS version of Diablo? A DotA descendant? Either way, it looks pretty fantastic from the trailer above; expect it to arrive February 2009.

Book: Pixorama

Book: Pixorama

We’re big fans of eBoy’s pixel art so we’re pretty stoked with Pixorama, a 14-page full-color book with eight of his prints; it’s printed on thick cardboard stock with rounded corners.

Free: 99 Bricks

Free: 99 Bricks

99 Bricks looks like Tetris, but strips away the walls and adds basic physical laws to turn it into a teetering version of Jenga. As one commenter notes, it’s addictive but frustrating.

Batman Uni-Formz Vinyls

Batman Uni-Formz Vinyls

We’re having a hard time choosing just one of these three Batman Uni-Formz urban vinyls; thankfully, you can get ’em in a limited-run “Statues Case” that includes six of the 8″ figures.

Free: Bomba

Free: Bomba

Deceptively simple, Bomba is definitely not for the jittery handed: this game maps movements precisely to your mouse, meaning even minor flicks of the wrist can end in instant death.

Quantum of Solace: Combat

This trailer for the upcoming Quantum of Solace game shows its COD4 lineage with many familiar moves: cover, dash and switch make a comeback, as well as our fave: blind fire.

Storm the House 3

Okay, so we cheated to get the video above, but it doesn’t make Storm the House 3 any less fun: defend against endless waves of enemies using everything from missiles to space lasers.

Book: Zelda and Philosophy

Book: Zelda and Philosophy

The Legend of Zelda and Philosophy is perhaps a bit too deep, with questions about Link’s free will and Hyrulean society; it’s perfect for those who prefer pondering over pillaging.

Surly Beer

Surly Beer

Tired of crappy beer? Surly Beer not only redresses your grievances but is brash enough to serve premium beer in a can; it’s pretty good stuff, but too bad it’s only served in Minnesota.

Free: Grey Matter

Free: Grey Matter

Usurping bullets entirely, Grey Matter instead relies on you ramming a black dot into enemies; chaining three kills in a row nets a “Trinity Attack,” which wipes out all onscreen enemies.
