Watch Dogs character trailer shows who you can trust

Because of his hacking prowess, Aiden Pierce has a whole city at his fingertips in Watch Dogs. Still, you didn't think that he'd be having a go at it alone, did you? No, Aiden has an entire thuggish, ruggish cast working with him to ensure his preferred brand of mayhem. Meet them all here, or just wait to have one (or more) of them inevitably backstab you on May 27.

Space Run is a hexagonal Planet Express sim

Videogames like to get highfalutin with their space concepts. Everyone's a bounty hunter or ace pilot of magic jedi planet saver or whatever. What about the folks just trying to get by that make space the place for all those...

Penarium wants you to try to survive a sadistic circus act

Though arcade-style action games seemed to disappear with arcades themselves (go figure), they have been making a bit of a comeback recently. Games like Super Crate Box or the upcoming Woah Dave! remind us that sometimes it ...

Meltdown has a lightning gun and a dubstep trailer

Sometimes, players want to take in a thought-provoking narrative, with realistic character development and emotional events. Other times, players just want to shoot robots and blow things up. Meltdown is definitely meant for...

This Dead Rising 3 DLC trailer is just too badass

If this trailer were to be believed, Dead Rising 3's new DLC Chaos Rising is pretty darn cool. I mean, look at all the leather, and motorcycles, and angry dudes in jail. That's practically the trifecta of cool stuff. However, Chris "Smash Mouth" Carter says it's not all that great. Maybe he just hates leather, and motorcycles, and dudes in jail.

Blood is everything in Lords of Shadow 2 trailer

Vampires sure do have a one-track mind, eh? Everything with them is all blood, blood, blood, blood, blood. Blood is family. Blood is power. Blood is everything. We get it. Vampires like blood. Gallons of the stuff. This Cast...

This Dark Souls II trailer is something different

It's not a bad trailer, but I suppose it just feels tonally different than usual. The music sounds like something out of a gritty cop/crime movie, but the voice over does speak to series fans specifically, while broadly being a sort of halftime locker room pep talk. It's less bleak, I guess, instead focusing on the hard won triumph you may eventually earn. Neat. March 11, guys!

Action RPG Bound by Flame finally gets gameplay trailer

I've somehow missed Bound by Flame's very existence over the past six months. Maybe you have, too. I'm not sure if my eyes glaze over at fantasy action RPGs (that aren't Dark Souls or Witcher) or I just missed it. At least i...

Matador is the isometric mech game I didn't know I needed

Ernest Hemingway was an aficionado of bull fighting, the "only place where you could see life and death, i. e., violent death now that the wars were over." He wrote of the matador as an artist in The Sun Also Rises, with as...

Pronunciation problems: Witch and the Hundred Knight

Arlecchino is your name, dear narrator? You could pronounce it right. It's only the name of one of the most well-known stock characters in theater, where slapstick derives from. Arle-KEY-no.   Oh, and you're introd...
