Hammertime? Hells yeah!

New House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut Video is Awesome, Ridiculous

Today we have a new House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut video for your viewing pleasure.  Violence and strong language are prevalent, as they should be.  We've already covered f the gory details of this PS3 remake of one of the Wii's most mature titles.  Check out the video.  Dude says "Hammertime" then beats a mutant with a hammer.  It doesn't get any better than that.  Extended Cut will even feature two new levels with full PlayStation Move support.  Two local players can battle the zombie mutant horde together.  You can expect House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut this October.

Opposed to Fun? Infinity Ward Would "Never" Include Zombies

Stories like this one are where my ideology of video games and the games industry itself kinda clash. See, I view games as a consumer product (entertainment software) valued according to its entertainment capacity. In short: studios like Infinity Ward should strive to entice and delight me. Unfortunately, Infinity Ward and countless others would prefer that their creations be viewed as art and expression. Thankfully the big, ugly, sadistic publishers - like Activision - are in place to make sure that games are at least marketable.

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?
