First a fantasy football board game, then a 1995 MS-DOS port, Blood Bowl is coming to multiple platforms Q2; this Goblins vs. Orcs trailer actually shows off only two out of eight races.

Gameplay: Matt Hazard

Gameplay: Matt Hazard

It takes a little while to get going, but this latest Matt Hazard gameplay trailer had us in stitches by poking fun at Japanese RPGs; we never understood those damned ellipses either.

Fallout 3: Anchorage

Fallout 3’s Operation: Anchorage is finally out for the Xbox 360 and PC; with cloaking units, epic historical battles and new technology, this add-on is what DLCs are all about.

Fire + Art = Fire Art

Fire + Art = Fire Art

Deafening, dangerous yet oh-so-colorful, Jason Mika and David Umlas’ fire art is a pyrotechnic wonder; they burn salt-laced propane because, in their words, “People cheer.”

Crank: High Voltage

Crank: High Voltage

Crank: High Voltage is the sequel to the original 2006 film; Jason Statham still stars as a hitman, this time with an artificial heart that he needs to periodically jump start to stay alive. Thanks, J!

Free: Space Pips

Free: Space Pips

Unlike yesterday’s Aliens Must Die, Space Pips is quite a bit more fun and frenetic, with responsive controls, plenty of upgrades and debris that sounds a bit like wind chimes.

Four Chords = Hit Song

Four Chords = Hit Song

It’s old news for music majors, but Axis of Awesome shows that it only takes four chords for a hit song; realizing Blink 182 and A-Ha are related = shivers down our spine.

Burnout: Ultimate Box

Buy

If you’ve yet to score a copy of Burnout Paradise, Ultimate Box is a quick and dirty way to get caught up; it includes the Cagney update as well as the Bike, Big Surf Island and Party Packs.

Video: Lightwriting

Video: Lightwriting

Created by the wizards over at LICHTFAKTOR for a cinema ad, this lightwriting video is some of the slickest light art we’ve seen; look for the cool “bicycle” at about 40 seconds.

Trailer: Star Ocean

Trailer: Star Ocean
Buy

The trailer above for Star Ocean: The Last Hope is a bit like Final Fantasy meets Mass Effect; word is it’ll be more team-focused with a 4-party system when it drops 2/24 in North America.

Free: Aliens Must Die

Free: Aliens Must Die

With atrocious English and a maddening four-axis control system, Aliens Must Die does get a bit annoying at times; still, it’s fun enough for a quick session during coffee breaks.

Trailer: Section 8

Trailer: Section 8

Section 8 aims to redefine the FPS genre; bold goals, but judging from its flexible spawn points, customizable characters, and drop-dead gorgeous trailer above, it might just deliver.

Trailer: Mutant Chronicles

Trailer: Mutant Chronicles

Rated 20% by Rotten Tomatoes, Mutant Chronicles is a bad, bad movie; still, any film that squeezes in Ron Perlman, John Malkovich, and steampunk tech screams cult classic.

Cyclecide Bike Rodeo

Cyclecide Bike Rodeo

Cyclecide’s Bike Rodeo mixes counterculture, bicycle riders, mechanics and the errant psychotic clown; they create pedal powered monstrosities and let the public get their ride on.

Music Video: Dear Walker

Music Video: Dear Walker

With cardboard sets and props, Hugo’s Dear Walker has a quirky, low-budget feel that we dig; this music video is also unique for having been shot in one, long continuous take.

Gameplay: Dark Void

Gameplay: Dark Void
Buy

The scenery is a bit barren, but this Dark Void gameplay video looks promising if you’ve ever dreamt of jetpacking around a-la-The Rocketeer (with a bit of God of War thrown in).

Trailer #2: House of the Dead

Trailer #2: House of the Dead

This second uncensored trailer for House of the Dead: Overkill keeps the classic grindhouse horror style of the first, but spends more time introducing you to the protagonists.

DoW 2 Multiplayer Battle

DoW 2 Multiplayer Battle
Buy

We don’t usually have time to sit through entire battles, but this Dawn of War 2 multiplayer battle with Orks wiping out panzies (Eldar) makes this a must-buy on February 19.

Dark Athena Intro

Dark Athena Intro

It must be the week of intros, first with Killzone and now the first four minutes of Riddick: Dark Athena; the Dark Athena looks creepy, but it’s really Riddick who sends shivers up our spine.

Super Apocalypse: Recycled

Super Apocalypse: Recycled

What Super Energy Apocalypse: Recycled lacks in graphics it makes up for in depth; it’s a basic RTS where you’re tasked with building a base to defend against mutant alien zombies.

Star Wars Talk Show

Star Wars Talk Show

Daddy issues? Incest? DNA tests? The more we think about it, Star Wars was made for Jerry Springer; CollegeHumor’s Ackbar! Talk Show dishes the dirt on Luke, Darth and Leia.

DIY: Fireball Trebuchet

DIY: Fireball Trebuchet

Texan Mark Winkler builds a full-scale trebuchet, calls it “Mongo,” uses it to hurl sixteen pound balls of fire at the Maker Faire, and one of his friends still has the nerve to ask, “Why?”

Free: Monster Invasion

Free: Monster Invasion

Monster Invasion looks deceptive simple: save London from Viking monsters with an array of traps; however, they crank up the tempo so quickly that defeat is nearly assured.

Extended Trailer: RE 5

Extended Trailer: RE 5

This extended alternate Resident Evil 5 trailer fills in a bit more of the backstory, but for the most part it makes our collective jaws drop with its gorgeous graphics; we can’t wait for March 13.

Transforming Lego Barricade

Transforming Lego Barricade

Disguised as a Saleen ‘Stang, Barricade was easily one of the hottest Transformers in the ’07 movie; uber-brick guru Gyuta (who also did Wall-E) is back with an amazing LEGO version.

Free: Dodge

Free: Dodge

Most games are about shooting, so were a bit surprised at how much fun Dodge is; your goal is not only to avoid enemy fire, but to lead it right back to them for some spectacular kills.
