The Amazing Spider-Man's VGA trailer

As the avalanche of new and exclusive trailers continues to roll down from Mt. VGA, we have a look at The Amazing Spider-Man which you can enjoy. It's Spider-Man, doing what a spider can, which apparently involves giant robots. Everybody loves fighting giant robots, right? A reboot of a licensed game series, the source material itself a reboot. It's like those Russian dolls.

BioWare's new game is Command & Conquer Generals 2

We don't know much from this Spike VGA reveal. Command & Conquer Generals 2 is the rumored new title from BioWare, and it's something that's pretty different coming from them. Military world footage wasn't much to talk about. Are you excited about this? Are you excited about RTS from RPG people?

Metal Gear Rising renamed, now developed by Platinum photo
Metal Gear Rising renamed, now developed by Platinum
by Jonathan Holmes

The VGAs are just a few hours away, and we already have our first massive announcement from the show, leaked for your viewing pleasure. According to this trailer spotted on NeoGAF, Metal Gear Solid Rising is now called Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and is being developed by Platinum Games. 

I just watched the trailer, and I'm left with mixed feelings. I've enjoyed just about every game that Platinum has released so far, but I'm not sure if their "we're shameless and gratuitious and we know it" style is what I want in a Metal Gear Solid game. Seeing a man continue to hack away at another man's body with a katana after he's already separated his head and shoulders from his torso may work in MadWorld, but I'm not sure if it makes sense for Metal Gear, a series that I've always relied on for its capacity to be quiet and understated.

One thing is for sure, no one is going to accuse Revengeance of being just another Metal Gear rehash. For better or worse, this game is going to be different.

Hey! Listen! Watch me on GameTrailers TV tonight!
