Early Friday morning, GameTrailers revealed the world premier trailer of Telltale Games’ long awaited episodic adventure, Back To The Future The Game. Back in June, Telltale released a teaser announcing the project along with a Jurrasic Park title. For six months, fans have been on pins and needles — and for anyone (including myself) following the hype, this particular trailer was supposed to be epic. Telltale themselves said, “it looks fantastic!”

All subjectivity aside, there can be an argument as to why the trailer fails or succeeds in delivering 1.21 jiggawatts of excitement. It lends itself perfectly to this next installment on what it takes to hype up a game right, or wrong. A bit of fair warning, this article bears potentially gruesome videos after the jump.  We’ll let you decide why they’re both gruesome.


Developer People Can Fly just released a new Bulletstorm trailer today. If you’re like me, you clicked on right away to watch the gory goodness. From the sights and sounds, it seems the game will live up to its promise of being jam packed with colorful language and massively entertaining shooter action–even if it is only remotely close to the trailer.

You want more? Of course you want more.


The latest trailer for EA’s upcoming DLC expansion Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam not only contains high-octane gameplay footage of the game in action, but also reveals the pricing details.

According to the trailer, Vietnam will retail for $14.99 /1200 MS Points, which doesn’t sound too dissimilar to last year’s Battlefield: 1943. In a similar vein, the DLC will include four new maps along with four new vehicles and 15 weapons that compliment the new era.

A precise release date has yet to be disclosed however, as the trailer still points to a winter 2010 date for deployment.


A new trailer has been released for the Criterion’s forthcoming Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, once again highlighting the range of ludicrously powered supercars and the equally preposterously police cars that will be available.

The trailer also provides a further glimpse into the long-winding tracks from the past and the new Autolog feature for online play that allows you to connect to others and display your friend’s stats.

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit is slated for release November 16th in North America and November 19th in European territories.

NamcoBandai has just released the latest trailer for their upcoming hack and slash title Knights Contract. Expect lots of man on wolfman violence to ensue, with the ocassional magical incantation or two. Overall, the motion capture work is incredible, and I’m really interested to see some gameplay, given how much effort they put into the above video.

The visceral medieval feel of the game actually reminds me more of Berserk than Dragon Age, but this is a video game website after all, so don’t expect a huge rant!

As if we didn’t already know from the multitude of hints that have prevailed over the last year, Resistance 3 is coming. Today, however, saw the official confirmation from Insomniac along with an intriguing live action teaser trailer. I think it’s rather delicious myself, but you can judge it for yourself in the video posted above.

No further details were announced other than the fact it will launch next year and, judging from the logo, will see the Chimera turn their attentions onto New York just in time to coincide with Crysis 2.


Sony simply can’t get enough of flaunting Killzone 3. True to form, Gamescom has brought us yet another trailer of the 3D brethren, this time offering the first look at some multiplayer action.

And in case you were wondering, yes the jet pack seen in the initial trailers will be making an appearance. As will the almighty Exoskeletons from Killzone 2, it so happens. I would call that a result.


Fresh from Sony’s press conference at Gamescom comes a brand new trailer for Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet 2, which contains a glimpse at some new creation tools including some fancy music and cut scene editors. Not to mention the fact that the music used throughout the trailer is ridiculously soothing.

Sackboy is once again set to melt the hardened hearts of gamers November 12th in Europe and November 16th in the US.

Insomniac has unveiled an all new Ratchet and Clank title for PS3 during today’s Gamescom event in Germany entitled Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One.

As the above trailer shows, the game will be an online co-operative based adventure,allowing up to four players to switch between either Ratchet, Clank, Qwark and Dr. Dr. Nefarious.

Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One will be available in Autumn 2010.


A new trailer featuring apparent gameplay footage from Criterion’s upcoming Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit has surfaced from today’s Gamescom event.

The video predominately serves to highlight the benefits of the special edition version of the game, which will include an Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione and Ford Shelby GT500 as exclusive unlocks, as well as unlock the Chevrolet Camero SS, Porsche Cayman S, Audi TT RS and Ddoge Challenger  SRT8 from the start.

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit is currently slated for release on November 19th.


Ninja Theory’s upcoming title, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, has a new trailer and holy shit, is it awesome. The game is loosely based off Chinese classic novel Journey to the West. Not only does Enslaved: Odyssey to the West have gorgeous visuals and excellent source material, but it also appears to be shaping up to be a very impressive game in its own right.

Giant robots, explosions, platforming, fierce battles, dialog that will pull at your heartstrings, large bolded words and epic narration await you after the break. What are you waiting for? Hit that jump. This trailer is epic.


After several hints throughout this week, Codemasters have unveiled their new reveal trailer for the forthcoming Colin: McRae: DiRT 3, courtesy of the ESPN X Games. DiRT 2 was one of my favourite racing games last year, so the announcement of a sequel already is exciting news indeed. I only hope this new instalment adopts a less Americanised approach than its predecessor, but fortunately Codemasters have hinted it will have  British vibe this time round.

Racing driver Ken Block, who narrated DiRT 2 with no personality whatsoever, looks set to feature once again as the trailer depicts him putting a Ford Fiesta rally car through its paces across a South African dirt track before joining a Ford RS200 in a race on snowy terrain, a locale that was sorely missing in DiRT 2. The teasing trailer comes to a close  by having the Fiesta drifting around an exploding truck, most likely hinting at a new race event for the final game.

As the trailer proclaims, DiRT 3 is set to be released next year.
