Debut: The Secret World

Debut: The Secret World

Hot chick comes home, makes a milkshake, spots a monster and wipes out half the apartment trying to kill it: just another day in The Secret World, an MMORPG that mixes modern with magic.

App: BumpTop

App: BumpTop

We’ve played with numerous Windows themes, but BumpTop blows ’em all out of the water: it’s a 2.5D overlay of XP, Vista and Windows 7 — essentially, Windows with walls.

Mario Bros Laser Cutter

Mario Bros Laser Cutter

Because using machinery for its intended purpose is so passe: Jed of HackLab takes a laser cutter’s motors and belts out a stirring rendition of the Super Mario Bros. theme song.

Timeline: The Old Republic

Timeline: The Old Republic

This timeline trailer for The Old Republic has us genuinely excited over the upcoming MMO; the Jedi Temple gets leveled, the Republic concedes, and the Sith control half the galaxy.

Pip-Boy x iPod Touch

Pip-Boy x iPod Touch

Post-nuke America meets Apple with this iPod Touch-powered Pip-Boy 3000; it uses the shell of the wristwatch replica that came with Amazon’s Survival Edition of Fallout 3.

1993 id Software Tour

1993 id Software Tour

Recently released by John Romero from a VHS tape stash, this 1993 tour of the id Software studios is a fascinating blast from the past; it was taped just before their release of DOOM.

Debut: Overlord Minions

Debut: Overlord Minions

While the Overlord is away, the Minions come out to play: Overlord: Minions lets you take control of five minions on the Nintendo DS as they solve puzzles, fight enemies and get minion-y.

Physics: Fight Night 4

Physics: Fight Night 4

It’s only a featherweight at 45 seconds, but this trailer for Fight Night Round 4 demos seriously cool moves including inside fighting, glancing blows and dynamic blood, sweat and tears.

Trailer: And Yet It Moves

Trailer: And Yet It Moves

While we’re digging the artsy paper collage look of And Yet It Moves, what we most like about the puzzle/platformer is the ability to rotate the world to achieve your goals. Thanks, Stefan!

DIY: Cardapult

DIY: Cardapult

Free up some room in your wallet and rain papery death on coworkers with the Cardapult: this DIY project is made using only business cards/card stock, rubber bands and glue.

Weapons: Burn Zombie Burn

Weapons: Burn Zombie Burn

Burn Zombie Burn’s weapons trailer is predictably awesome; everyone loves chainsaws and flamethrowers, but we’re most excited by the lawnmower and (we kid you not) dance gun.

Free: Death Vegas

Free: Death Vegas

It’s not quite Street Fighter IV, but Death Vegas is a sweet flash-based fighting game with comic-book style visuals; play head to head on the same keyboard or with a joystick.

Music Video: Like A Boss

Music Video: Like A Boss

Fresh from The Lonely Island’s Incredibad album, this uncensored “Like A Boss” music video features comedy it-man Seth Rogen giving the mother of all performance reviews.

Debut: Blade & Soul

Debut: Blade & Soul

Blade & Soul is an upcoming Korean MMORPG that looks and plays like a manga come to life with acrobatics, bloody fight sequences and ridiculously well-endowed ladies.

Video: Flutter

Video: Flutter

Produced by Slate Magazine, Flutter is such an effective parody of Twitter we wouldn’t be surprised if it got venture capital; it introduces “nano-blogging,” which uses only 26 characters.

Story Trailer: Prototype

Story Trailer: Prototype

We’ve seen plenty of Prototype’s protagonist thus far, but this narrated story trailer introduces us to several other characters as well as their funky “Web of Intrigue” flashback system.

Music Video: Stady

Music Video: Stady

Perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon, Stady is the work of visual music director Ohashi Takashi; it’s a chill mix of acoustic guitar, light drum beats and hypnotically sequenced shapes.

DM: The Blind Date

DM: The Blind Date

Dungeon Master: The Blind Date’s acting is a bit painful to watch, but even more painful is the truth: most of the friends we rolled d20s with are still dateless nerds.

Wii Spray

Wii Spray

The Wii’s artistic offerings have thus far been limited, but Wii Spray promises to shake things up a bit; it allows you to do virtual graffiti using a spray can with a Wii Remote inside.

Video: Pollution V2

Video: Pollution V2

A remake of a 2006 opening for Fuel TV, Pollution V2 is a kaiju lover’s dream; it was shot in HD and is a mix of kitschy sci-fi (view the monster costumes here) and fantastic CG effects.

Free: Fox Fyre

Free: Fox Fyre

Fox Fyre has the look of a classic artillery-based lobber down to the retro graphics; gameplay twists include multiple turrets, real-time play, elastic terrain and upgradable weapons.

Starcraft II :Terra-Tron

Starcraft II :Terra-Tron

The last of the April Fools stragglers are in, and the awesomest is StarCraft II’s Terra-Tron; assembled from a Terran base, it should be familiar to Transformers or Power Rangers fans.

EVE: Day of Darkness II

EVE: Day of Darkness II

Day of Darkness II is an amazing fan-made video for EVE Online; it’s the result of two years of work by player Dire Lauthris and details the heroic delaying action of a Caldari admiral.

Michael Bay Cereal Ads

Michael Bay Cereal Ads

Michael Bay has detractors, but we have to say we’d pay more attention to those Cheerios ads if he started making cereal commercials; it’s packed with music, women and slo-mo shots.

Water Runner Robot

Water Runner Robot

Based off of the Jesus lizard, this Water Runner Robot is designed to move across the surface of water thanks to large, disc-shaped feet; next up: steering, and then world domination.

Trailer: Plants vs. Zombies

Trailer: Plants vs. Zombies

This music video for PopCap’s Plants vs. Zombies has a Korean-pop girl band sound to it, but the lyrics are actually pretty funny; the undead might just have a shot at the music business.

Viral Vid: Mini Clubman

Viral Vid: Mini Clubman

This viral video for BMW’s Mini Cooper Clubman has CG written all over it, but we’re always up for auto acrobatics; the self awareness (“I think we’re in a viral!”) is a nice touch, too.

Short Film Trailer: Turbo

Short Film Trailer: Turbo

Debuting 4/30 in L.A., Turbo is a 20 minute short for a USC graduate thesis about a futuristic video game tournament; it was shot on a RED camera and produced by a four man team.

Scotty Got An Office Job

Scotty Got An Office Job

Longtime freelancer Scott Iseri has a cubicle now, but he isn’t going down without a fight: Scotty Got An Office Job is an ongoing series with him covertly sticking it to the man.

Trailer: Explodemon!

Trailer: Explodemon!

It may sound like Pokemon but Curve Studios’ Explodemon! is more like MegaMan; it’s a 2.5D action platformer which uses–you guessed it–explosions as its chief game mechanic.

Trailer: Enemies of Riddick

Trailer: Enemies of Riddick

At some point we’ll tire of all these Dark Athena trailers, but not today: Enemies of Riddick is a nice rundown of the games chief’s baddies, with some satisfying payback at the end.
