If we created a “Bulkiest Space Marine Armor of the Year” award it’s quite possible Section 8 would run away with the it. The men of Section 8 are wearing some of the bulkiest, most burdensome stuff we’ve ever seen. But there’s a point (beyond beating Epic Games at their own rough-and-tough-dude game): the soldiers in Section 8 are sci-fi paratroopers and when they jump, they hit the ground hard.

Below the fold is a lengthy trailer for the game. It focuses on the jumping gimmick and shows off a few of the equally armor-burdened enemies in the game. You’ll see plenty of pew pew lasers, rockets, weird robot things, and even knives if you choose to brave the page break.

When we saw the game at E3 2009, we came away pleasantly surprised: The loose shooting (as seen in the trailer) and the jumping mechanics impressed. In a few words, it looks like this SouthPeak Interactive game will be better than Velvet Assassin -- not a mighty accomplishment, but reassuring nonetheless.

The PC and Xbox 360 versions of Section 8 hit retail August 25.

Poor Pagan Min. He tries ruling his regime with a positive influence, but all those terrorists are there to just, ahem, "muck" it up. Maybe his tendencies to take hostages and implement electroshock torture aren't viewed by everyone as "positive," but it's tough to argue with such a snazzy dresser.more

Not a lot looks changed in Call of Duty's 'Power Changes Everything' trailer

For a trailer that boldly suggests that "power changes everything," Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare sure looks pretty similar to past installments in the franchise. I guess the guys jump higher before using their mega-de...more
