Free: Portal Defender

Free: Portal Defender

Similar to Castle Crashers, Portal Defender is fun hack and slash but filled with inside jokes that should be familiar to the indie developer community and loyal Newgrounds visitors.

Video: Snickers Football

Video: Snickers Football

We loved TV/Film production house Spy Films’ last Snicker Tag ad; Snickers Football is their latest CG tour-de-force, and shows off some of the biggest running backs we’ve ever seen.

Stormrise: Line of Sight

Stormrise: Line of Sight

Though Stormrise’s dynamic camera system isn’t brand new, we’re impressed by its implementation in this Line of Sight trailer; it’ll be available March 24 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

LEGO Ogre Tank

LEGO Ogre Tank

This LEGO Ogre Tank by brdavis5 is cool enough with “Hailstorm”, a multiple Zamor sphere firing system; even cooler: its NXT can autonomously seek out and destroy targets.

Free: DNA Heroes

Free: DNA Heroes

DNA Heroes mixes Guitar Hero and genetics, swapping out Guns N’ Roses for Watson & Crick; correct base pairs grow your DNA strand, but miss ’em and you may grow an extra eye instead.

What If Trailer: Panzers

What If Trailer: Panzers

This What If? trailer for Codename: Panzers Cold War highlights the alternate history theme of the RTS game; it posits the 1949 Berlin airlift going awry, essentially resulting in WWIII.

Video: Contra x LBP

Video: Contra x LBP

Just when we thought we’d burned out on Little Big Planet: this Contra remake is a must-see for old-school NES fans, and includes 8 stages by 7 authors on the LittleBig Contra team.

Iron Man: Armored Adv.

Iron Man: Armored Adv.

We’re a bit iffy about the idea of a teenage Tony Stark, but we’ll give the animated Iron Man: Armored Adventures a shot; it debuts 4/24 on Nicktoons with 26 episodes in the first season.

Gameplay: League of Legends

Gameplay: League of Legends

The original trailer for League of Legends was all cinematic, so we’re glad they’ve released a proper (if colorful) gameplay video; WoW and DotA players are in for a treat.

iPhone App: iShred

iPhone App: iShred

You won’t be mistaken for Van Halen anytime soon, but iShred lets you jam on your iPhone with a stomp box effects; chords are assigned by buttons, leaving you free to strum away.

Free: Battalion Nemesis

Free: Battalion Nemesis

Ideal for those who prefer the slower, more thoughtful pace of turn-based play, Battalion: Nemesis is a 16 level strategy game with plenty of modern air, land and naval units.

Video: Happy Up Here

Video: Happy Up Here

Fans of Space Invaders, your day has come: Rokysopp’s “Happy Up Here” music video breathes life into our favorite pixelated alien baddies, who then proceed to lay waste to a city.

Trailer: Oregon Trail

Trailer: Oregon Trail

Oregon Trail gets a proper “trail”-er: beyond the cartoony graphics, it adds new mini-games including fishing, panning for gold and berry picking; it even makes dying from dysentery look fun.

Make: Mini Robots

Make: Mini Robots

Make Magazine’s John Park not only talks about consumer ‘bots like the Roomba but shows us how to build our own, including a solar junkbot and a more complex beetlebot.

Metal Gear Solid Touch

Metal Gear Solid Touch

Get your Snake fix on the road with Metal Gear Solid Touch, the iPhone/iPod Touch version of MGS4; coming in Spring, gameplay is a bit different but the graphics aren’t half bad.

Free: Dinowaurs

Free: Dinowaurs

One look at the brontosaurus packing a cannon on its back and we were hooked: Dinowaurs is a multiplayer artillery-based shooter with upgradable weapons and even dino clothing.

Video: Tresling

Video: Tresling

Short for Tetris and arm wrestling, “Tresling” slightly mans up the classic puzzler; movement is accomplished by overpowering your opponent while an extra button rotates pieces.

Science of Watchmen

Science of Watchmen

The Physics of Superheroes author and professor James Kakalios explains the science behind Watchmen’s Dr. Manhattan above; it’s “not strictly correct… but cool nonetheless.”

Call of Juarez: BiB

Call of Juarez: BiB

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is a prequel to the original CoJ; coming summer ’09 to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, it’s a Wild West shooter set in the 1800s where you play two outlaw brothers.

From collecting the morning dew in human skulls to using med-packs to heal zombie bites, The Onion tackles the difficult issue of preparing our kids for a post apocalyptic future.

Blu-ray: Akira

Blu-ray: Akira

Katsuhiro Otomo’s legendary anime film is finally going 1080p HD: Akira is now available in Blu-ray and includes English and Japanese audio in Dolby TrueHD plus subtitles.

Mel Gibson: The Colonel

Mel Gibson: The Colonel

His outbursts have knocked him a few rungs down the cool ladder, but Mel Gibson is finger lickin’ funny with The Colonel, a KFC meets The Patriot short produced with Jimmy Kimmel.

Trailer: Dante’s Inferno

Trailer: Dante’s Inferno

This awesome trailer for Dante’s Inferno makes us wonder why more games aren’t situated in Hell; it not only overflows with maggots and demons but a nearly divine art style.

Gameplay: Comet Crash

Gameplay: Comet Crash

Oh hell yeah: Comet Crash bolsters PSN’s already healthy tower defense game lineup by adding counteroffensive attacks from the AI or–most importantly–a human player.

Launch Trailer: M. Hazard

Launch Trailer: M. Hazard

Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard gets a proper 80s-styled trailer, with mono audio, cheesy retro sound effects and even cheesier graphics; that, and Neil Patrick Harris.

The Veiled Commodity

The Veiled Commodity

As Black History Month draws to a close, check out Vinh-Dickson’s The Veiled Commodity: it’s a short film on slavery that shows how far we’ve come — and how far we’ve yet to go.

Trailer: Jumpgate Evolution

Trailer: Jumpgate Evolution

This trailer for Jumpgate: Evolution reminds us of EVE: Online, but that’s not a bad thing: more space-based MMOGs are always welcome, and this one should be out in June.

The Pale Blue Dot

The Pale Blue Dot

Carl Sagan’s prescient prose really resonates in this amazing short by Michael Marantz; it’s titled The Pale Blue Dot, after Sagan’s 1994 book and Voyager 1 photo of the same name.

Cowboy Bebop x Dissidia

Cowboy Bebop x Dissidia

It’s almost too much awesomeness for our ape brains to handle, but this Cowboy Bebop and Final Fantasy: Dissidia mashup mixes the former’s catchy intro with the latter’s characters.

Trailer: Lost Planet 2

Trailer: Lost Planet 2

Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi announces Lost Planet 2 in the rather lengthy trailer above; it’s an ice world no more with jungle climes, but we’re most excited by the co-op play.

Trailer: Overlord II

Trailer: Overlord II

Our favorite anti-hero series is back with Overlord II, due out on PS3 and Xbox 360 this June; also on the way are Overlord: Dark Legend on the Wii and Overlord: Minion for the DS.
