Blizzard. [Register or Login to view links]. Mr. James Mielke and Mr. Jeff Green (and a teensy bit of Mr. Sean Molloy). Go, watch, and then read our massive [Register or Login to view links].

Trailer Gallery
  • [Register or Login to view links] + [Register or Login to view links] -- If you thought the Wii was good at making people look like fools before, you ain't seen nothing yet. This short trailer for EA's almost-ready-for-release [Register or Login to view links] highlights gamers singing along to "Brick House". Also, you can make videos of said performance. Hillarious!
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- As one of the biggest shooter franchises in existence right now and one of the most anticipated games of the year coming out of E3, [Register or Login to view links] has some lofty expectations to fulfill. This short video sample of multiplayer is a pretty sweet reminder of why we're excited, though.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- Not content with simply giving us a [Register or Login to view links], Electronic Arts also released this brand-new story-centric trailer for the still-amazing-looking [Register or Login to view links]. On the one hand, the writing and voiceover stuff is all a bit corny and heavy-handed. On the other, OMFG CRYSIS SO PRETTY, etc.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- [Register or Login to view links] is the type of game we affectionately refer to as a "CUTE ATTACK ^____^"! In all honesty, we only have the vaguest clue what's going on in this boss battle from the game, but there's no escape from the insane levels of happy on display here.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- [Register or Login to view links] is a fun damned racing game, and one of the reason's why is its impressively extensive damage system for cars, fences, and pretty much everything else in the game. This vid focuses on just that, much to our unending glee.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- Graphically, the next-gen-only [Register or Login to view links] is a noticeable step up from its predecessors. Gameplay-wise, though... well, I don't want to shock anyone, but it looks like it involves slashing at large groups of enemies with your weapon over and over again.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- There's a reason (or three or four) that this indie shmup sensation made our [Register or Login to view links] list, and we think that's perfectly illustrated in this level demonstration.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- [Register or Login to view links]? To hell with your brain training! We have FACE training now. I'll let this one speak for itself... in Japanese while middle-aged Japanese women slowly make their mouths wider. I'm going to have nightmares.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- We're still not 100% convinced that a portable version of God of War can live up to the thrills achieved in the first two PS2 games, but this video of the demo of [Register or Login to view links] gives us a good feeling that they're on the right track.
  • [Register or Login to view links] + [Register or Login to view links] -- The latest in the Guilty Gear series returns to its hardcore fighting game roots on the Wii. This intro gives us a pretty rockin' idea of the enormous list of characters to choose from, including the just-plain-awesomely-named Sol Badguy. I wish my parents were so cool as to name me Sol Badguy. We've also got some gameplay footage of what a match in the game will look like.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- There's no denying: [Register or Login to view links] simply makes sense. This debut trailer gives us a taste of the action and the humor we can expect from this summer 2008 release.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- Just the briefest snippet of gameplay to get you Madden-ites drooling.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- It seems a little bit shady that one of the major features they're pumping for [Register or Login to view links] for the Wii is that it will have all the normal modes we'd expect from a "full" Madden game. Still, this trailer also reveals some interesting new stuff, including the addition of mini-games and a strange "Family Mode" that removes the need for the nunchuk.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- One of the original games from the minds behind [Register or Login to view links] is [Register or Login to view links] on Xbox Live Arcade. This vid shows off the full first level of the game, so you can see if it's worth your hard-earned $10.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- After seeing the latest vid for this year's iteration of the Need For Speed franchise, there's one thing we can say for sure: the game will future pretty smoke. No idea what that means for gameplay, but there it is.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- [Register or Login to view links] has two big things going for it that we can make out: the Penny Arcade license and a really freakin' long name with which to bludgeon competitors in the web-comic-cum-video-game field. The actual gameplay for this title isn't really made of the stuff that works well in trailers, but the creators thankfully recognized that and instead use this brilliant three minutes to show off what we're really looking for in a PA game: their sense of humor.

  • [Register or Login to view links] -- This PlayStation Network downloadable game definitely has a unique arcade racer look going on, but we still don't know exactly what's going on in gameplay. Take a look for yourself.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- The Tomb Raider Re\Visioned series of cartoons based on Lara Croft was [Register or Login to view links], but my most eagerly anticipated episode is just now hitting. You're probably laughing at the title, but with comic book hotshot Gail Simone writing and great animation studio [Register or Login to view links] drawing it up, this should actually be quite good when it debuts on August 9th. No, seriously.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- We hadn't really heard of [Register or Login to view links], but after this gorgeous 1-minute teaser, consider them on the list of games to pay very close attention to in 2008.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- [Register or Login to view links] is certainly causing some controversy, but this latest trailer shows off a couple of new city types that have us psyched. A hybrid farming community slash future city? Yes, please.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- The SOCOM series has been [Register or Login to view links] on the PSP. This vid gives a taste of the tactics you can expect from the latest installment.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- We discovered earlier today that [Register or Login to view links] for the Wii is going to include a [Register or Login to view links] in addition to the usual punching and, well, smashing. This video is the intro to that new mode and shows off the enemies players will face therein.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- For any polish it (or its trailer) lacks, WolfQuest seems to at least be pushing a rather unique online experience. With the Minnesota Zoo backing the game as an educational experience for kids, it'll be interesting to see if this one catches on.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- Apparently there's [Register or Login to view links] coming out for this obscure MMORPG thing? Whatever. Looks quite pretty, though.

The Kitchen Sink
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- !!! The latest episode of everyone's favorite weekly gaming show is up and ready to rumble. This week members of the 1UP crew discuss [Register or Login to view links], [Register or Login to view links], and [Register or Login to view links]. Countdown to EPISODE 100: four weeks.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- With this video, Molyneux and team finally start going into some specific details on what we can expect from the combat side of Fable 2. And in the perfect Molyneux style, he convinces us that it will be the BEST VIDEO GAME EVAR!!
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- Is this feature a bullet point on the box? Perhaps it should be.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- The Milkman sits down with the Megaman. This video interview from E3 features nearly 10 minutes of these two hashing out everything from Resident Evil to Onimusha to the likelihood of a new Megaman Legends game.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- This isn't the best footage we've got of upcoming zombie FPS [Register or Login to view links], but it is brand new and live from QuakeCon.
  • [Register or Login to view links] -- The creator of this parody vid gives Nintendo's Wii the new slogan "It's really confusing." So is this video in its own special way.
