Red Alert 3: Units

Red Alert 3: Units

This latest gameplay trailer for Red Alert 3 gives a sneak peek into its many new units; Tanya apparently time travels, but there’s nothing more badass than the Empire’s Shogun Executioner.

Dead Space: Dying Video

Dead Space: Dying Video

Spoiler alert: this ten minute Dead Space video is packed with all the myriad ways you can die in the game; if you don’t feel like hurling your previous meal, take a pass.

Free: Kings Island

Free: Kings Island

Kings Island is basically a free online version of Diablo, down to the gothic fonts; the plot is a bit WTF (you’re supposed to battle farmers and farm girls) but it’s still nicely polished.

Metroid: Confrontation

Metroid: Confrontation

Metroid: Confrontation is a tech demo for AM2R, a Metroid II fan remake by DoctorM64; while the full version is still in the works, the demo is plenty playable and available for download.

Endwar DS/PSP

Endwar DS/PSP

Tom Clancy’s EndWar is available for nearly every platform under the sun, but we actually like the simplified DS and PSP versions most; they’re turn-based with 20 units per faction.

Midnight Club LA: Launch

Midnight Club LA: Launch

Midnight Club: Los Angeles is now available and with it this launch trailer, which essentially acts as a grand tour of Southern California. The only problem? Traffic is never this light in LA.

Trailer: Alan Wake

Trailer: Alan Wake

From the same team who brought us Max Payne, Alan Wake is about an insomniac horror writer who travels to a sleepy small town. Fortunately for him, things go horribly wrong.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Star Wars: The Old Republic is the MMO successor to Knights of the Old Republic, and is a partnership between BioWare/EA and LucasArts. It’s in pre-alpha with no release date specified.

Teaser: Alpha Protocol

Teaser: Alpha Protocol

With Quantum of Solace just around the corner, this teaser for Sega’s upcoming Alpha Protocol has us donning our spy gear in anticipation; it runs on Unreal Engine 3.0 and releases 3/09.

Free: Minesweeper

Free: Minesweeper

It’s been ages since we played Minesweeper on the PC; this free Flash version is a nice update, with a Wild West setting (of all places). Not revolutionary, but it’s a fun time waster.

Trailer: Dragon Quest IX

Trailer: Dragon Quest IX

Although it’s not scheduled for release stateside, this Dragon Quest IX trailer really wowed us with the DS’ graphic abilities; the game features co-op multiplayer and turn-based combat.

10 Minutes of Fable 2

10 Minutes of Fable 2

Can’t wait for Fable 2 to come out on Tuesday? Check out this trailer, which shows off the first ten minutes of the game; frankly, we’re quite impressed with how cinematic it all feels.

Based off of 2001’s Space Tripper, Astro Tripper is a side-scrolling shooter that features fat power ups, a pseudo 3D environment and 1080p HD graphics. It’s coming to the PS3 “soon”.

Teaser: Carrier Command

Atari ST, Amiga and C64 gamers should fondly remember Carrier Command; a new version is finally on the way and should arrive in 2009. Scope the teaser above for some juicy visuals.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

Although official plans for a US release are murky, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days should please Nintendo DS fans. It focuses on Roxas between Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts II.

CoD: WaW Multiplayer

CoD: WaW Multiplayer

This video for Call of Duty: World at War faintly echoes Killzone 2, albeit with over-acted and corny phrases no one would ever shout over multiplayer; thank god it’s action packed.

Free: Wooden Path

Free: Wooden Path

Wooden Path reminds us of those sliding image puzzles we played with as a kid. It can be a bit frustrating, but the zen-like burbling water kept us from punching our monitor.

SoaSE: Entrenchment

SoaSE: Entrenchment

Much love for no-DRM devs Stardock, whose Sins of a Solar Empire will be getting its Entrenchment expansion soon. You’ll not only get new cap ships, but gigantic starbases as well.

Mother 3 Fan Translation

Mother 3 Fan Translation

With Nintendo passing on a US version of Mother 3/Earthbound, a group of fans translated the entire RPG; after nearly two years of hard work, it’s done. Thanks, Thundercross!

Trailer: Ninokuni

Trailer: Ninokuni

Hayao Miyazaki fans are gonna love Ninokuni, Studio Ghibli’s first major foray into the gaming world with Japanese developers Level-5: think Howl’s Moving Castle meets Totoro.

Gameplay: Mirror’s Edge

Gameplay: Mirror’s Edge

These Mirror’s Edge trailers just keep getting better; “Flight Level” is halfway between a flying dream and a falling nightmare, with the heroine leaping (off) tall buildings in a single bound.

Demo: EndWar

Demo: EndWar

The demo for Tom Clancy’s EndWar is now available for download on the Xbox Live Marketplace; early reviews are praising the voice recognition but note it’s simplistic for an RTS.

Spider-Man Launch Trailer

Spider-Man Launch Trailer

While the SHIELD trailer was goofy, this launch trailer for Spider-Man: WoS is flat-out emo cued to Moonlight Sonata. The enemies and overall plot look plenty badass, however.

Free: Dogfight 2

Free: Dogfight 2

It takes awhile to load, but Dogfight 2 is worth the wait. This freebie by Rock Solid Arcade is a beautifully rendered WW1 biplane shooter, with 25 missions and bonuses for ace flying.

Trailer: Patapon 2

Trailer: Patapon 2

There’s something about this Patapon 2 trailer that gets us giddy in a let’s go crazy and demolish everything way. It’s coming to the PSP in Japan in November; no word on a US release.
