This lushly detailed Races trailer for Guild Wars 2 is a who’s who of Tyria; you’ll meet the noble Humans, the belligerent Charr, the spiritual Norn, the brainy Asura, and the organic Sylvari.

This Developers Diary for Darksiders dishes the dirt on the coolest horseman, War, along with the story: it’s literally a conspiracy of biblical proportions between Heaven and Hell.

Clash of the Titans

Clash of the Titans

Say what you will about Hollywood action flicks, but this teaser for Clash of the Titans looks god-awesome: Kratos would do well to take some pointers from Perseus. Thanks, everyone!

Heresy: Dante’s Inferno

Mayhem Trailer: Darksiders

Mayhem Trailer: Darksiders
Buy

This Mayhem trailer for Darksiders doesn’t reveal anything new, but we like its angsty, vengeance-be-mine style; the protagonist seems hell-bent on sending everyone to hell.

UK Trailer: Prince of Persia

UK Trailer: Prince of Persia

While we still like the US trailer, this UK trailer for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time has much more of a grand, epic feel a-la-Lord of the Rings, with narration by the princess herself.

Trailer: Prince of Persia

Trailer: Prince of Persia

We’re always wary of game-to-movies, but we like Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’s first trailer; there are wisps of PotC here, appropriate as it’s a Bruckheimer & Disney production.

Brutal: God of War III

Brutal: God of War III
Buy

Kratos goes armageddon on the gods in this Brutal Gameplay trailer for God of War III; the gory combat is sweet as usual, but the tunnel flight sequence at the end is truly epic.

Trailer 2: Doctor Parnassus

Trailer 2: Doctor Parnassus

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassusnew theatrical trailer doesn’t disappoint: running a minute and 43 seconds, there’s a bit more plot exposition and plenty of new footage.
