Customizable karts, physics-based effects and an open art and scripting system to encourage custom mods: Zero Gear has all the makings of an uber-Mario Kart. Thanks, Robert!
Think Ocarina x 5: above is Stanford’s Mobile Phone Orchestra (MoPhO) playing Stairway To Heaven with their iPhones and special glove speakers at The Crunchies 2008.
Think T-rex meets Starship Troopers meets the Zerg: this faction trailer for Dawn of War II shows off the Tyranids, whose ferocious, swarming hordes send happy shivers up our spine.
Coming to theaters January 23, Hajirai Machine Girl is not for the faint of heart; only in Japan would a machine gun emerging from a bikini girl’s behind seem even remotely normal.
This gameplay video for Yakuza 3 is light on any real innovation; it’s just a dude in a suit wailing on victim after victim in street brawls, but with the moves of a UFC/WWF fighter.
We love developers who don’t take themselves too seriously, and Flock! doles it out in bales of wool: this funky action puzzler lets you fly a UFO, abduct sheep and carve crop circles.
We’re looking forward to Afro Samurai come 1/27, and this GameTrailers preview doesn’t disappoint; the game is bloody, but in a fluid, cell-shaded way that borders on visual poetry.
As Killzone 2 creeps closer to its 2/27 release date, this run-and-gun preview gives a decent rundown of the games’ use of cover, the Sixaxis controller and multiplayer modes.
The video above shows a year’s worth of edits to the OpenStreetMap in glorious, world-spanning detail; the effort is akin to an open source version, wiki-fied version of Google Maps.
Coming to PSN for $10, Cuboid is ideal for puzzle lovers; it’s beautifully rendered in 3D, with all manner of switches, “weak tiles” and teleporters that’ll keep you scratchin’ your noggin’.
Painstakingly created by Visual Effects student Patrick De Leon, this five minute Buck Rogers short film is a campy mix of real actors and rayguns, robots and futuristic cityscapes.
Done up like a near-future sales pitch (think RoboCop’s ED-209), this Elite Powered Armor trailer for F.E.A.R. 2 shows how to cruise the apocalyptic supernatural streets in style.
It won’t be winning any awards for the graphics, but Ragdoll Cannon: Remake is deliciously fun; your objective is to hurl hordes of ragdolls at targets spread across 25 levels.
Cloning is apparently the secret to German efficiency, or so goes the VW Golf x Matrix commercial above; it’s supposedly so violent that UK TV viewers can’t watch it before 9 pm.
If you thought Burnout: Paradise was finished with the DeLorean, think again: their Legendary Cars pack includes parodies from Ghostbusters, Dukes of Hazzard and Knight Rider.
Set to the song “Turana Hott Kurdis”, this breathtaking video by Till Credner is a collection of time lapse shots the feature the sun, the moon and the stars wandering across the sky.
Sucker Punch’s PS3-only superhero game, inFamous, is reminiscent of Prototype; it is however fully open-ended, which means we’ll see plenty of third-person mayhem in our future.
A must-watch for Street Fighter fans, this Gouken vs. Akuma video pits Ryu’s trainer against our favorite red-haired baddie; it’s animated in a gorgeously fluid and artistic sketch style.
Called “a near-perfect war film” by Time Magazine, The Hurt Locker follows an Army bomb disposal unit in Iraq; first released in Italy in 2008, it’s due to hit US shores in Spring 2009.
We can’t get enough of these Prototype gameplay clips; the genetically-modified parkour-wielding anti-hero game (due out this summer) looks as sweet as ever, courtesy G4TV.
While we still wish GT 5 Prologue was released in a finished form, we’re still salivating over this video from their Spec III release, which added the Ferrari California and Lotus Evora.
You’ll need to read up on Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. to figure out why Americans are taking out an M1 Abrams, but suffice to say this teaser has our geopolitical panties in a bunch.
Sure, robots could save lives, but truth be told we’ll probably make them serve beer: Jamie Price’s BaR2D2 is an RC mobile bar with an elevator and six-bottle shot dispenser.
There’s nothing like flying through a supernova remnant to give you a bad hair day, but this 3D tour by MIT astrophysicist Tracy Delaney lets you do it safely; it’s visualized using real data.
If you liked the Dissidia trailer but wanted some more meat, the aerial battle gameplay video above should tide you over: dizzying midair combos with Squall vs. Cloud = epic win.
More Lord of the Rings: Conquest goodness for all you Gondor wannabees: while the graphics may not be jaw-dropping there’s nothing quite like watching Gandalf rush a Balrog head-on.
