Here is a totally hilarious advertisement for the new Star Trek Video Game coming April 23 featuring good old William Shatner in yet another “fight” with his nemesis…the rubber suit Gorn as they continue their “battle” first seen over forty years ago! Not sure about the game but this is funny and a must see for original series fans.
Well, all good things must come to an end thus here is the trailer for Citadel, the last Mass Effect 3 single-player DLC that releases tomorrow. Even though the game’s overall narrative is decidedly bleak I must say that Bioware seems to have thought that it was a good idea to lighten the mood a bit with this last piece of DLC and dial up the fan service to the nines.
Here is the launch trailer for Blizzard’s Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm (2013) expansion due to be released March 12 for the PC/OS X. Most of the footage is reused from previous trailers yet the quality of the CG is simply amazing and makes one wish that Blizzard actually made a movie.
Say what you will about the Lego branded video games but more often than not they have ended up being a blast with some decent difficulty coupled with a cheeky sense of humour. Then again, nearly all of the recent ones have been based around major IP such as Batman, Star Wars or Lord of the Rings so it comes with a bit of surprise that the newest installment will be Lego City Undercover that encompasses Lego’s own line of City vehicles. Anyone who has been to this site for a while will realize that I usually don’t cover Lego games yet I’ll make an exception in this case because I know that my Lego loving son will absolutely go bonkers over this game.
Now that arguably the two biggest video game releases of the year are out in Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 we now turn our attention to what will surely be the big dog next year in Grand Theft Auto 5 which is scheduled to launch sometime next spring 2013. Rockstar released their newest trailer today showing the updated graphics and, more importantly, the three main characters. At the same time it certainly looks like there is much more humor involved this time around which is a breath of fresh air considering the last installment was mainly devoid of anything remotely funny.
Microsoft continues its trend of laying down big bucks towards marketing their crown jewel video game franchise with this new live action trailer for the upcoming Halo 4. Produced by David Fincher (yes, THAT David Fincher director of Fight Club, The Social Network, Se7en and The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo) and directed by Tim Miller who spearheaded the FX work on Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World this roughly two minute trailer provides a very quick overview through flashbacks of a few events which shaped the Master Chief’s life.
Ten minutes of nice looking gameplay footage featuring snazzy lighting effects from Capcom’s upcoming Remember Me. Of note: Only in video games can someone avoid being perforated by a helicopter mounted chain machine gun where pilots seem to be especially picked for duty who are clearly blind as a bat. I can perhaps suspend disbelief if it were a case where the shots miss as the protagonist scurries away into hiding but do you really believe that the main character can avoid projectiles for almost the entire running time of this ten minute footage?
