"Transformers" Videogame Trailer is Deceptive

So my last post about liking "Transformers" was expectedly met with jeers from readers, which I expected, but I saw this today and thought I would invite more harassment.

Video Game Movie Poster Mashups are a Nerd's Dream

Everyone these days knows how to use the Internet, but the nerds of the world REALLY know how to use it, especially when called upon to display their nerd cred and Photoshop skills. Living deep within the forums of the movie site Empire is a group of individuals dedicated to the art of the "shopped" poster mashup. The one that I found particularly interesting was the Video Game poster mashup, because the worlds lend themselves to each other so well, and I'm a fanboy for both.

"Ju-On" Game Trailer is Creepy, Kinda

As far as I know, the upcoming "Ju-On (Grudge)" game for the Wii is Japan-only, but this trailer is certainly worth a look.

Play Left 4 Dead for Free This Friday!

If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of being a gamer that hasn't played "Left 4 Dead" yet, you probably should take care of that. Luckily, Valve will be putting it up on Steam for FREE this Friday. Yes, there's a catch, but it's still pretty cool:

Yes, instead of spending $40 on the game, you can spend $0. The catch? The offer's only good for a 24-hour period, and once that 24 hours is up, the "free" game will be locked, and you'll need to pay up to play up.

Dead Rising 2 Gameplay Trailer - Chainsaws!

Even though zombie games are a dime a dozen these days, I'm a bit more excited about "Dead Rising 2" than the rest. The original was an innovator in the genre when it came out for the 360 years ago, and was a hit despite it's tremendous difficulty. Late this morning, the first gameplay trailer was thrown on the hungry masses, and I like what I see, especially in the last 10 seconds or so:

Japanese Girls + Bikinis + Swords = Sweet

I remember reporting on the development of this film a while back, called "Oneechanbara Vortex". The movie is based on a Japanese videogame property that was originally for the PS2, and eventually ported over to the XBOX360 and the Wii. I'm not sure if it was ever released in the US, but some of our readers may be able to help me out with that one.

I had some trouble finding the film's synopsis, but I would assume it follows the game closely, since you can't very well improve on perfection like this:

First Look: Ghostbusters Game Opening Cinematic

L4D Survival Pack First Impressions

Yesterday, Valve released their free update to "Left 4 Dead," dubbed the "Survival Pack." Included in the update are 2 multiplayer maps (that were formerly just single player maps), general bug fixes and "Survival Mode," a take on the "Horde Mode" concept from Gears of War 2 wherein you and some friends take on a barrage of zombies and aim to survive as long as possible.

Ghostbusters "Slimer Edition" is Gonna Cost Ya

Recent trailers for the upcoming "Ghostbusters" game have definitely planted the seeds of curiosity if not full-on fanboy excitement. As someone who (naively) paid $80 for the Spore "Galactic Edition," I wouldn't be averse to shelling out some extra dough for the special "Slimer Edition" package of the game if it looks promising enough. Unfortunately, I'm not sure that anything short of the second coming of "WWF No Mercy" for N64 would prompt me to drop $129.99 on anything game related that isn't another console entirely. The package itself sounds pretty cool, but the price, not so much.
