New Rage Video Is Full of Red Chunks

The latest video of gameplay footage for Rage is action-packed, if you don't count the first two minutes and fifteen seconds.  The first couple of minutes introduce characters, setting, plot, etc.  That's nice and all, but you really want to see someone get zapped with an electric crossbow.  Well, you're in luck!  Do you want to see someone take a throwing blade to the head?  It's got that too!  What about deployable turrets?  Everybody likes turrets, right?  There's plenty of close up shotgun blasts and explosive crossbow bolts for the whole family to enjoy!  (As long as your whole family is over 17.)

Co-Op Star Trek Game Announced

The first thing I thought when I saw the above picture was, "Whoa! Spock jacked a plasma rifle from an Elite Covenant!  Crossover madness! ,"  My second thought: "Judging by the bloom alone, the new Star Trek game will be based on the J.J. Abrams movie."  Well, I was half right.  The new game will continue the story from the J.J. Abrams Star Trek film.  Sadly, there's still no word on a Master Chief appearance.   While we don't know much about it yet, we do know the game is being billed as a co-op experience where players team up as Kirk and Spock "to stop a legendary enemy race bent on conquering the galaxy."  (My guess is something humanoid with minor, yet distinctive changes to otherwise normal homo sapien facial features.)  We also know that the game will be at E3 next week, so we'll be able to pick up all the co-op details for our database there.

New Dark Souls Video, Release Date Set

The new Dark Souls trailer is out, and it is awesome.  Dark and foreboding hopelessness permeates the entire two minutes of soul crushing footage.  Opera singers do their best to let you know just how epic this game is going to be.  Giant demons stomp their way through the video, while expansive vistas fill the horizons.  This "spiritual successor" (or rebranded sequel) to Demon's Souls now has a "massive, seemless, overworld design."  This should mean: if you can see it, you can get to it.  If that's true, you're going to need a parachute right around the one minute mark. I don't know about you, but for some reason this whole trailer makes me feel like Count Rugen.

Serious Sam 3: BFE Trailer Unveils Iron Sights and Melee

The collective sound of the Serious Sam fans right now sound like the headless bombers from the series.  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAh.  The first trailer showing gameplay footage of Serious Sam 3: BFE is out and it looks downright impressive.  Graphically this game looks to be one of the best we're going to see this year.  But fans of the series won't be distracted by the shiny objects on their screen, instead two things stand out from the trailer - a sledgehammer and iron sights.
