Rayman gets a backstory.

Rayman Origins Video Boasts E3 Awards

Rayman is back!  Well, not yet, but soon!  Definitely, tentatively, this year... He'll return in Rayman Origins, which was originally planned as an episodic downloadable title.  Ubisoft decided that there was just too much Rayman to go around, and now the game will be a full retail release.  This time Rayman will have three friends along for the ride.  He's actually kicking one of them in the face in the above screenshot.  Rayman and Globox have a complicated relationship.  This latest trailer shows off some of the bright, beautiful graphics, gorgeous (and delicious) stages, as well as synchronized swimming!  We all know everyone loves water levels, right?

One video features a man "unboxing." The other is gameplay footage.

Two New Videos for Catherine

Well, at least I won't be surprised by my nightmares tonight.  The above image is taken from one of the two Catherine videos we have for you today.  The pseudo-relationship sim/puzzle-platformer is coming out next week.  The image is actually from the less disturbing of the two videos. One focuses on the physical package of the game, the other covers gameplay footage.   You can decide which one creeps you out more.

New Trailer for LOTR War in the North Focuses on the Fellowship of the Three

The latest trailer for the Lord of the Rings: War in the North focuses on the three heroes.  It's actually just a cool slo-mo battle with an overlay of Gandalf talking about how righteous and important the three unnamed warriors are.  Still, it looks good.  You can ooh and ahh at all the bloody violence, or tremble at the sight of the "cruel master of dark sorceries," Agandaur.  There's also a giant electrified castle in the background, which is always a plus.

New Toy Soldiers Cold War Trailer Flaunts AC130

The latest teaser from Toy Soldiers: Cold War shows the result of a pair of weapons manufacturers' drunken ramblings.  A fella from Lockheed and a guy from General Electric must have been sitting around in a bar in the early sixties, both high on peyote and social upheaval.  One was pondering what to do with his giant air plane, another was trying to figure out how to make a six-barrel-electrified machine gun more ri-god-damn-diculous.  After a few more beers, one put his chocolate in the other's peanut butter, and the AC 130 was born.  It's basically a bunch of mini-guns and Vulcan cannons duct taped to the side of a plane, book ended by Howitzers for good measure.  Check out the video and enjoy!
