New Video For Crimson Alliance Features a Wizard called Direwolf

The latest trailer for Crimson Alliance features an old grizzled wizard named "Direwolf."  That's pretty cool, as far as nicknames go.  He's got all the icy, fiery, lightning-y things you'd expect in a wizard, including a huge chip on his shoulder.  Crimson Alliance is an upcoming action RPG where you can join three friends either locally or online for some good old fashioned dungeon crawling excitement.  I got some hands-on time with the game at E3, and I liked what I saw.  It will set you back 1200 MSP, or you can pick it up for free if you purchased all of the XBLA Summer of Arcade titles.

New Bodycount Dev Diaries Talk About the Demo and Co-op

The latest videos for Bodycount focus on the demo, multiplayer, and co-op modes.  Like the previous entries, they feature the dev team in some dilapidated warehouse.   I hope that's not their office.  It's rather gloomy.  The demo is, well a demo.  You can try out Bodycount's lean mechanic and faux iron sights.  They take a second to get used to, but it's an interesting new aiming method.  The co-op is a two player "siege mode" where you battle waves of enemies with ever-decreasing cover.  One of Bodycount's unique features is the game's cover shred mechanic, and it should be a prominent factor throughout all game modes.

Female gun toting character highlighted in the latest batch of screens.

New Dead Island Screens Showcase Purna

A fresh batch of screenshots just hit the net from Dead Island showcasing the game's fourth character named Purna.  She's a former Australian cop and a gun expert, though sadly, she won't be finding much in the way of firearms in Dead Island.  When she does find the limited resource you can bet she'll put it to good use.  She joins Xian Mei (knives), Sam B (melee) and Logan (throwing weapons) as playable characters in the game.

Overkill Software Talks Payday: The Heist

Simon Vicklund of Overkill Software recently sat down with the good folks at PlayStation.Blog to talk about Payday: The Heist.  If that name seems familiar to you, it's because I played through a level of Payday with Simon in my E3 preview.  And you have an incredibly random memory.  They talk about all things Payday, and even mention where they drew inspiration from (Dane Cook!?!?!).  Read on to see 17 minutes of footage edited into a :46 second, short-attention-span-friendly trailer and some of the highlights from the interview.

Motion Trackers Reveal a new Trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines

Well this certainly doesn't suck. The new Aliens: Colonial Marines trailer actually looks quite stupendous. The atmosphere and sound are perfect. We even get a glimpse of a Power Loader and an Alien Queen. Looks like Gearbox wants to remind everyone that all their efforts aren't just going to Borderlands 2.

Freddie Wong Joins the Bodycount

I've talked about Freddie Wong before on Co-Optimus, the YouTube film maker creates slick action shorts around some subject and loads them up with special effects.  His work has attracked the likes of John Favreau, Kevin Pollack, and Andy Whitfield who have all appeared in a short.  One of my favorite scenes he put together was one called "Flower Warfare."
