Trailer: Item Getter

If you can ignore the atrocious English, this Item Getter trailer is like watching a Hayao Miyazake film; it’s a DS RPG that allows users to create their own items through alchemy.

Currently in closed beta, Parabellum is a free-to-play MMO/FPS; the angst-ridden trailer above gives a quick glimpse into a near-future New York besieged by terrorists.

Much loved on the DS, Meteos Wars is making its way to XBLA this Wednesday; it’s basically a falling blocks game oft compared to Lumines, except it depends on speed and reflexes.

Video: Hand Skateboarders

Video: Hand Skateboarders

Skatiens is a French troupe that literally upends the idea that skateboards are for feet only; although they’re not skating per se, the tricks they do with their hands are pretty cool.

Video: Science Commons

Video: Science Commons

Part of Creative Commons, we like the idea behind Science Commons: allow more people to benefit from scientific research by making it easier to both find and use.

World of Goo Tour

World of Goo Tour

This World of Goo Design Tour video lets us see a game through the eyes of another developer, specifically David Rosen of Wolfire; we think it’s a must see for aspiring game designers.

Dawn of War II is one of those games that gets better every time we see it; this Blood Ravens trailer focuses on our favorite marines as they slash, snipe and slaughter for the Emperor.

Music Video: The Reason

Music Video: The Reason

The Blizzards’ The Reason really lends credence to the phrase, “Hell hath no fury like a women scorned;” thank God most of them aren’t 100 foot tall monsters with flaming hearts.

Rendezvous with Rama

Rendezvous with Rama

Anyone who uses a cellphone owes something to late author Arthur C. Clarke; we think this student film for his epic Rama series is a fitting ode to an all-around amazing gentleman.

Bit Museum: Early Nintendo

Bit Museum: Early Nintendo

Gamer Jason Cirillo is a goldmine of historical gaming trivia, with the Bit Museum video above as fascinating as it is freewheeling. Nintendo used to sell playing cards? Funky!

Video: Long Gone

Video: Long Gone

We’ve seen plenty of stop-motion vids, but this music video directed by Cesar Kuriyama takes the cake, with 45,000 images shot by a Nikon D200 over the course of 14 months.

Trailer: Trine

Trailer: Trine

Not only is Trine one of the prettiest platformers we’ve seen, it looks pretty fun too; it reminds us of a side-scrolling version of Diablo, with puzzles and physics-based objects.

Trailer: Red Faction

Let freedom ring with Red Faction: Guerilla’s latest trailer; the rebels use everything from giant hammers and mining equipment to mechs to hit back at their EDF oppressors.

Gameplay Video: Wanted

Gameplay Video: Wanted

Wanted’s latest trailer reveals more of the gameplay; based on the Jolie/Freeman assassin movie, there’s a clear focus on the use of cover (think GoW) and curved bullet shots.

Rise of the White Wolf

Rise of the White Wolf

The Witcher is making his debut on consoles, and this Rise of the White Wolf trailer gives us a sneak peek; no gameplay, but the mock swordplay in the cinematic is plenty sweet.

Daft Punk Helmet

Daft Punk Helmet

Putting Halloween costumes everywhere to shame, Casey Pugh’s Daft Punk helmet is made with a cheap motorcycle helmet and an animated, Arduino-powered 16×5 LED matrix.

Real Life Mario Kart

Real Life Mario Kart

Saying French prankster Rémi Gaillard has a pair of big ones is a big understatement; watch what he pulls at the end of this real life Mario Kart video: Remi my man, you are a god.

Trailer: Ghostbusters

Trailer: Ghostbusters

Venkman, Egon, Ray and Winston, oh how we’ve missed thee: this Ghostbusters trailer is powered mostly by nostalgia and ectoplasm, but we don’t care; who you gonna call?

Riddick: Dark Athena

Riddick: Dark Athena
Buy

We think we’ve finally figured out why the Riddick series has done so well with this fresh Assault on Dark Athena video: Vin Diesel’s gravely voice makes anything sound badass.

Ripsaw MS1 UGV

Ripsaw MS1 UGV

It’s stuff like this machine gun-equipped Ripsaw MS1 UGV that makes us fear the inevitable robot rebellion, but for now it’s fun to watch it tear through terrain like tissue paper.

Trailer: Black Dynamite

Trailer: Black Dynamite

Black Dynamite’s blatant blaxploitation is ironically poignant; coming out in 2009 but filmed like Shaft in the 70s, it may be offensive, but at least it offends everyone equally.

Persia: Epic Gameplay

Persia: Epic Gameplay
Buy

With Prince of Persia coming out this trailer may be the last, but it’s a good one: it makes true on its “Epic Gameplay” title, with plenty of seat of your pants acrobatics and sword fights.

Teaser: Uncharted 2

Teaser: Uncharted 2

Uncharted has been called the male version of Tomb Raider, but we’re extra excited over this teaser for Uncharted 2; it’ll premiere 12/14 on Spike TV at the Video Game Awards.

Ozzy Osbourne x WoW

Ozzy Osbourne x WoW

We’ve always loved World of Warcraft’s celebrity commercials, but this one with Ozzy Osbourne is hilarious: it features him “gently” discussing who the true prince of darkness is.

John Oliver on Mumbai

John Oliver on Mumbai

Last night’s The Daily Show has John Oliver taking on the Mumbai terrorists; while we don’t want to make light of the tragedy, he really sums up how we feel about those motherf***ers.

The Last Eggtion Hero

The Last Eggtion Hero

Never egg on a man with a gun: The Last Eggtion Hero is a sticky, yolk-stained mix of Aeon Flux, Mirror’s Edge and The Matrix; roosters everywhere are understandably mortified.
