Hajirai Machine Girl

Hajirai Machine Girl

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.

Gameplay: Yakuza 3

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 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.

Gran Turismo Spec III

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.

Video: Snickers Tag

Shot on the streets of Toronto and directed by Spy Films, this ad for Snickers simulates a high-stakes game of tag with cyborg animals that should sit well with Beast Wars fans.

Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.

Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.

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.

DIY: BaR2D2

DIY: BaR2D2

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.

3D Supernova Flythrough

Gameplay: LOTR Conquest

Gameplay: LOTR Conquest

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.

Trailer: Push

Trailer: Push

With Djimon Hounsou and Fantastic Four’s Chris Evans, Push is like the cinematic version of Heroes; it focuses on government-hired psychics divided into 10 types of powers.

Left 4 Dead x Randy Savage

Even if you don’t know Randy Savage by name, you’ll no doubt recognize his “Slip into a Slim Jim!” tv spots, used to hilarious effect in the Macho Madness mod for Left 4 Dead.

The Onion is at it again with this Apple spoof of the MacBook Wheel; it’s similar to The MacTini but better produced. Best line: “I’ll buy just about anything if it’s shiny and made by Apple.”
