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:

First Look: Ghostbusters Game Opening Cinematic

"Bioshock 2" First Look is Long, Spoilery

Just over a week ago I posted the first "Bioshock 2" game footage, and wondered aloud what sort of teases would come next. As it turns out, "tease" is not in Gamespot's vocabulary, as they've posted a video which at first look answers nearly every basic question that fans of the franchise have so far. Be warned, this video is slightly spoilery in terms of general story and gameplay, but definitely worth a look:

More L4D Survival Mode Info (w/ Graph!)

I'm hugely disappointed in the amount of "Left 4 Dead" I've been playing lately. I blame it in part on "Peggle," but more on the fact that I've been busy with site and general life stuff and haven't had a decent chunk of time to dedicate to a nice Versus game with some good friends. Unfortunately, the incoming "good weather" might also impede my gaming a bit, but not before I have some time to get my hands dirty with the L4D DLC coming out next week.

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.

First "Saw" Video Game Details

Last week, we were "treated" to a very short, vague teaser for the upcoming "Saw" video game from Konami. When I first heard about the game, I was curious as to whether or not it would be puzzle based or action based, and as it turns out, it's a bit of both:

Left 5 Dead Isn't What it Sounds Like

It has been a while since I posted something about Valve's "Left 4 Dead," which I regrettably have played very little as of late. Fortunately, that isn't stopping people from producing all sorts of fan art for the game, from Russian dolls to Valentines to porn.

The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai (XBLA)

If you go poking through the Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA) on any given day, you're bound to find some really strange stuff. Aside from game demos, "HD remixes," and remakes of classic 2D games, it's hard to find a good game that isn't already being heavily promoted. Enter "Dishwasher: Dead Samurai," a very stylish and wacky beat-em-up from Ska Studios, which despite some flaws really stands out from the pack.

The name stands out on its own because it doesn't really make all that much sense. Shockingly, the story doesn't help:

Fallout 3 "The Pitt" Trailer

Despite only making it about 6 hours in, I really enjoyed Fallout 3. The story is great if not totally original, and the gameplay is unparalleled in depth. If not for the exhausting run time I'm sure I would have completed it, someday. Thankfully, Bethesda is not just content with making a never ending game for their fans, as they are spending tons of time pumping out DLC for the game. Their latest addition, "The Pitt," sounds pretty gnarly so far:

Resident Evil 5 In-Game Review

I've never been a big fan of the "Resident Evil" games, but dammit I can't get enough of these MSNBC.com "In-Game" reviews. I wonder why it's taken someone so long to realize this kind of idea. Of course, I suppose it could just be that no one has had the access of MSNBC. Either way, this game looks freakin' sweet. If only they could come up with a non-infuriating control scheme.
