I am really quite excited for The War of the Worlds, having played it at PAX. The moody, death-riddled platforming as seen in classics like Heart of Darkness and the more recent Limbo really resonates with me, and I think this could be a real winner.
We've got a selection of screens and a new trailer for you to take a peek at, so go do that. Hopefully some of you care as much as I do.

BloodRayne: Betrayal releases this month and HNNNNNNNG, I can't wait. I've waited five bloody years for a new BloodRayne game, and not even Satan's penis could stop me from getting hold of it.
Unless it's a really nice penis.
Anyway, here are some new screens of the game, which is looking more pretty every time I see it. Game's out August 31, which is far too far away. more
