This is actually happening. Hollywood has somehow managed to take what originally started as a pencil and paper guessing game that predates World War I and made Battleship into a summer blockbuster that has absolutely nothing to do with the original game. And now, it's going to be a videogame.

There's a new trailer out today, and it shows off (you guessed it) battleships. But not the in-game battleships, these are CG battleships. In fact, the only gameplay footage in the trailer is a two second clip of what looks like a flying alien machine rising out of the water and another two second clip of the first-person shooter part. Because that's what Battleship was always intended to be about.

Invisible, Inc.'s tactical espionage action hits Early Access August 19

Invisible, Inc. is going to be one of my obsessions this year. Enough that I am actually going to play a game while it's in Steam Early Access (PC, Mac) rather than waiting for the hard launch. Plus, it will be priced at $16 while in Early Access before bumping up to $20 at launch.more
