The Fuse "launch" trailer is now live. The game doesn't come out for like a week and a half so that's... weird. Why do I have the feeling there's going to be another trailer? The video offers a sliver of back story and features the prerequisite cool weapon footage and an abundance of explosions, faceless bad guys, and exploding faceless bad guys. I know, I know, it's still not Overstrike, but it looks like it has potential to be a pretty decent squad-based shooter.

Omerta: City of Gangsters is a complicated game with many interesting facets set in a prohibition era Atlantic City. While we loved the setting, the strategy, and what the game tries to do; the sum of the pieces seemed to miss being a cohesive whole. The biggest complaint our reviewer had was related to the game's combat system, they found it a bit frustrating and shallow at times. Luckily it seems developer Haemimont have heard fan feedback and is preparing a major patch for the game.
The "exclusive" Dead Space 3 demo was released yesterday on Xbox Live, that is if you managed to get a code for it.

Soldak Entertainment have released a demo for Drox Operative, a space ship combat RPG for the PC. While the game isn't exactly like "Diablo in space," it does remind me of another classic PC game - Star Control. It's a little less twitch based, but there's huge galaxies to explore and lots of ship to ship combat to engage in.

The demo is due out on the 15th February for Battlefield 3 online pass owners and the 17th for the rest of us. A YouTube user has provided over 50 minutes of footage of the demo. Beware these videos contain more spoilers than a Pimp My Ride reunion.

That is until Microsoft announced limited Gold access for Silver members who try out the Mass Effect 3 demo.
