Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 Features Cel-Shading, Four Player Co-Op

Like sands through the hour glass, so are the releases of Dynasty Warriors games.  I'm saying there's a lot of them.  After the umpteenth retelling of Romance of the Three Kingdoms, someone over at Koei decided the Gundam series had a story convoluted enough to make an acceptable plot for a  DW game.  So they added giant robots to the mix.  Enter Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3.  By now you know the drill.  If you are new to the DW franchise I'll sum up: Pick one of dozens of characters and fight hundreds, if not thousands of enemies by mashing the attack button.  Now with robots.  Amazingly, it's not as awesome as it sounds.  If you haven't played a DW game in a while it is nice to pick one up every now and then, if only to remind yourself of why you don't own all the DW games. (Confession: I loved DW 3 and 4.)

Remember Inversion? It Will Release a Year From Today

It's been awhile since we've talked about Inversion, an upcoming sci-fi shooted from Saber Interactive (the folks who developed Timeshift). The last time we talked about the game, it was expected to release sometime in 2011. A few days ago, however, publisher Namco Bandai gave it a solid release date for Feb. 7, 2012. That's right - a year from today you may be spinning objects in gravity fields you've created using the Grappler weapon and hurling your body through space in zero gravity environments. The extra year will be used to give the game a suitable polish.

Corrupted: Xbox LIVE Indie Done Right

Joystiq.com has found a real treasure in the zombie/ninja/baby-maker quagmire that is Xbox LIVE's Indie Games library.  The game is titled Corrupted, and supports four player local co-op.  Corrupted charges you and three friends with capturing princesses.  You're play as the bad guy.  Well, a pawn of the real bad guy. More than just a twin-stick-shooter affair, you can upgrade and customize your character as you progress through the game.  Stat categories include Damage, Blocking, Combos, and Range.  As you fill up your Corruption meter you can dish out special moves against hordes of enemies.

Magicka is an ambitious title which puts players in the shoes of a wizard with the powers of eight elements at their finger tips. You'll carefully craft your own method of destruction from these by yourself or with three other friends in co-op. We take this PC title for a spin in our latest review

Two Trailers for Resistance 3 Show Off Gameplay Footage

The Resistance series has been one of the most highly regarding on Sony's Playstation 3.  This fall, the third entry into the franchise, aptly named Resistance 3, will be released.  This time around, the seperate 8-player co-op mode has been dropped in favor of the two player local/online co-op campaign that we enjoyed in Resistance: Fall of Man.  A couple trailers have been released into the interwebs.  The first is a bit more cinematic, while the second features four minutes of actual gameplay, along with the explosions, guns, and ape-like cyborg aliens you'd expect.  It's definitely worth checking out for PS3 owners.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors Goes Hollywood

We've all heard of movies based on video games; Resident Evil and Prince of Persia are two recent examples, and of course there are the Halo rumors, too.  But the next big video game movie might not be inspired by relatively new games.  Apparently, a script based on SNES/Genesis era classic Zombies Ate My Neighbors is being shopped around.  It's described as "Superbad plus Zombieland plus Home Alone" which actually sounds like a pretty good movie, once you think about it.
