Gameplay Footage of Dead Rising 2: Off The Record

Yes, your Ghoul of Gaming has another tidbit for you! If you played Dead Rising 2, you'll know it's a nifty zombie survival game; a completely open world full of different choices and endings. While I didn't think it was as good as the first one, I did enjoy it. Hell, how can you NOT enjoy making custom weapons like the Broom Katana, Bucket 'O Drills, Beer Hat, & the Super BFG, to name a few. The mass slaughtering of literally THOUSANDS of zombies is so satisfying, and never gets old. Hell, that could be the entire game, and I would be perfectly content with it.

"Left 4 Dead 2" Trailer

Oh it's on people! The trailer for "Left 4 Dead 2" has hit the intertubes and it's 100% bonerz, whatever that means. This video, which is just shy of 3 minutes, doesn't appear to show any actual gameplay but it does lead me to believe that there will be a much richer story mode in the second outing. Although the primary strength of the series is multiplayer, you can only get your ass kicked by 15 year olds online for so long before you start to feel like less of a man.

Spray Some Blood with L4D2's Melee Weapons

One of the things that was missing from the original "Left 4 Dead" was melee weapons. Sure, guns, Molotov cocktails, and pipe bombs are cool, but do you really think that those things would be as easily at your disposal when the zombie apocalypse comes? Thankfully, the omission is being rectified in "Left 4 Dead 2," and this off-screen video from the floor of this week's San Diego Comicon shows just how fun (and bloody!) these new additions can be:

"Bioshock 2" Delayed Until 2010

The buzz machine has been firing on all cylinders for the past few months over the fall release of "Bioshock 2," including shipments of records, paper dolls, and misc promotional materials to media outlets. Unfortunately, the news broke yesterday that even with such strong hype, we're going to have to wait just a bit longer to get our hands on the game, specifically the (I'm sure intentionally) vague "2010 fiscal year."

"Ghostbusters" Video Game Mini-Review

The video game world has been abuzz this week with the release of the "Ghostbusters" video game, and the buzz is good. Thanks to a pretty awesome daughter, I got my own copy for Father's Day! After a good six hours spent busting ghosts (it really does make you feel good, fyi), I'm proud to report that the early twinges of excitement and hype that was felt back when the game was first announced are all justified.

Story

GTA IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony

So it looks like Rockstar may not even bother making another GTA and just continue to make add-ons to their last installment, GTA IV. If you’re like me and played “The Lost and the Damned” update that came out a few months back, you may not see this as a problem. But if biker gangs isn’t your thing maybe you can get into “The Ballad of Gay Tony”. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

"Aliens Vs Predator" Screens are Looking Good

Although we often talk about film remakes, we don't devote nearly as much attention to game remakes. Part of the reason is that aside from Nintendo's NES rehashes on the Wii, they aren't that commonplace. Thankfully though, SEGA had enough sense to port the very well received "Aliens Vs. Predator" PC game to the PS3 and Xbox 360 with some updates.

Bioshock 2 Multiplayer Divides the Dorkosphere

The original Bioshock game was applauded for sticking to its strengths as a heavily story based single player game. Even though 2K plans to stick with those strengths with Bioshock 2, it will feature extensive multiplayer gameplay. Thanks to Kotaku, there are now some vague, yet intriguing details.

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.
