Zero degree chilling, LED backlit logos and a working tap handle: the Jagermeister is perfect for parties; heck, they even have a profit calculator. Optional: matching Jager Bomb cups.

Free: Minesweeper

Free: Minesweeper

It’s been ages since we played Minesweeper on the PC; this free Flash version is a nice update, with a Wild West setting (of all places). Not revolutionary, but it’s a fun time waster.

Although it’s not scheduled for release stateside, this Dragon Quest IX trailer really wowed us with the DS’ graphic abilities; the game features co-op multiplayer and turn-based combat.

R/C Mechagodzilla

R/C Mechagodzilla

If last week’s 11″ Mechagodzilla wasn’t enough, this 20″ variant is a walkin’, wrist twirlin’, head swivelin’, screechin’, roarin’ and LED flashin’ monster worthy of the name Gojira.

Last Hours: Resistance 2

Last Hours: Resistance 2

With release day (11/4) just around the corner, this will likely be one of the last Resistance 2 trailers: titled “Last Hours,” this video shows off zombies, Nathan Hale, and 27 cent gas.

R/C Cyber Surfer

R/C Cyber Surfer

Think Cylon meets Silver Surfer: using two counter-rotating fans, the Cyber Surfer R/C Spaceboard is a pretty sweet flying toy; an accelerometer keeps him hanging ten instead of wiping out.

10 Minutes of Fable 2

10 Minutes of Fable 2

Can’t wait for Fable 2 to come out on Tuesday? Check out this trailer, which shows off the first ten minutes of the game; frankly, we’re quite impressed with how cinematic it all feels.

Teaser: Carrier Command

Atari ST, Amiga and C64 gamers should fondly remember Carrier Command; a new version is finally on the way and should arrive in 2009. Scope the teaser above for some juicy visuals.

Star Wars Bowling Balls

Star Wars Bowling Balls

There’s nothing like a Darth Vader bowling ball rolling down your lane to force push those pins into submission; made by Vis-a-Ball, there are other notables like Yoda and Boba Fett.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

Although official plans for a US release are murky, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days should please Nintendo DS fans. It focuses on Roxas between Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts II.

Thingamagoop

Thingamagoop

R2D2, eat your heart out: Thingamagoops are mini synthesizers that change frequency and pitch based on ambient lighting; in short, they’ll beep and blink up a storm.

CoD: WaW Multiplayer

CoD: WaW Multiplayer

This video for Call of Duty: World at War faintly echoes Killzone 2, albeit with over-acted and corny phrases no one would ever shout over multiplayer; thank god it’s action packed.

Free: Wooden Path

Free: Wooden Path

Wooden Path reminds us of those sliding image puzzles we played with as a kid. It can be a bit frustrating, but the zen-like burbling water kept us from punching our monitor.

SoaSE: Entrenchment

SoaSE: Entrenchment

Much love for no-DRM devs Stardock, whose Sins of a Solar Empire will be getting its Entrenchment expansion soon. You’ll not only get new cap ships, but gigantic starbases as well.

So advanced it requires Flash 10, Hobnox’s Audiotool is essentially a virtual Roland synthesizer that allows you to create your own electronic music; it looks and sounds freakin’ awesome.

JAQK Cellars Wine

JAQK Cellars Wine

JAQK Cellars’ California wines seem more at home in a Vegas nightclub than a musty wine cellar with playful casino-themed labels; they even sell JAQK-branded playing cards.

Star Trek Movie Stills

Star Trek Movie Stills

With a bridge straight out of an Apple store and a rejuvenated cast, these stills from J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek remind us this ain’t your daddy’s Enterprise; Sylar as Spock rocks our socks.

Far Cry 2: Anything Goes

Far Cry 2: Anything Goes

Aptly titled “Anything Goes”, this Far Cry 2 video gives a brief rundown of the various factions; it’s also filled with more explosions and shooting than you can shake a bazooka at.

Wooden Wall-E

Wooden Wall-E

This custom Wall-E by Morpheus looks pretty good in wood, which is unfortunate because it’s totally one of a kind and was a gift to PIXAR exec John Lasseter. Still, a geek can dream…

Mother 3 Fan Translation

Mother 3 Fan Translation

With Nintendo passing on a US version of Mother 3/Earthbound, a group of fans translated the entire RPG; after nearly two years of hard work, it’s done. Thanks, Thundercross!

Trailer: Ninokuni

Hayao Miyazaki fans are gonna love Ninokuni, Studio Ghibli’s first major foray into the gaming world with Japanese developers Level-5: think Howl’s Moving Castle meets Totoro.

Daft Punk [email protected]

Daft Punk Be@rbricks

They won’t be released until March 2009, but this 400% Daft Punk [email protected] twin pack is all kinds of awesome; they stand 28cm tall. If you can’t wait, you can get ’em in Japan on 10/24.

Liquid City is a beautifully illustrated urban anthology of comics from artists primarily based in Southeast Asia. Stories vary from charming to post apocalyptic and can be previewed here.

Gameplay: Mirror’s Edge

Gameplay: Mirror’s Edge

These Mirror’s Edge trailers just keep getting better; “Flight Level” is halfway between a flying dream and a falling nightmare, with the heroine leaping (off) tall buildings in a single bound.

Demo: EndWar

Demo: EndWar

The demo for Tom Clancy’s EndWar is now available for download on the Xbox Live Marketplace; early reviews are praising the voice recognition but note it’s simplistic for an RTS.
