Does Blizzard make movies or computer games?  That’s a question I honestly can’t answer anymore after watching the new Starcraft 2 trailer that was released yesterday.  If I didn’t know better I would think the company was about to launch one of the biggest blockbuster movies of the summer.

While some might scoff at this trailer and say it has nothing to do with the gameplay itself, I would argue they are completely wrong.  Starcraft is just as much about the story as it is about the RTS gameplay, and if there is one thing Blizzard does extremely well, it’s integrating both elements together in perfect harmony.

As for the trailer, it has to be seen to be believed. There are simply no words to describe it, so hit the jump to watch it now. Read more… »

Say what you will about Eidos’ befallen heroine, but you have got to give the girl credit – whenever you think it’s game over for the once-untouchable mascot, she comes fighting back with something that defies the notion of what one would expect from a Tomb Raider game.

For those expecting a continuation of Underworld, avert your eyes now! Not only does this barely resemble a Tomb Raider game, but it seems to look more like a dungeon crawler – for those eagerly awaiting Diablo 3, this could be deemed as a worthy distraction until the damn game is finally released.

Following on from yesterday’s announcement of James Bond: Blood Stone, Activision has launched a debut trailer for the game offering a mixture of driving, shooting and combat elements, commencing with a high speed car chase featuring Bond’s trademark Aston Martin DBS and concluding with an explosive speedboat set-piece.

Blood Stone will feature an original storyline and will also revert back to the third-person perspective last seen in From Russia From Love. Judging from the trailer, the game will hopefully harken back to Everything or Nothing, what I consider to be the best Bond game since Goldeneye.

I don’t know much about history, and I don’t know much about biology.  I don’t know much about science books, and I don’t know much about the French I took.  What I do know is I love this new trailer for a make believe God of War Indie movie. If you would just watch this trailer, you might fall in love with the idea of this movie as well, and then what a wonderful world this would be.

Seriously though, this trailer is absolutely incredible.  To see it now, hit the jump.

After last week’s earth shattering reveal, the first trailer for Evolution Studios’ MotorStorm: Apocalypse has been posted, and believe me, if you thought the inclusion of an everlasting earthquake sounded good, then wait until you see it in video form. From the footage shown here, it could very well have the muscle to stand up to the competition, but unfortunately we won’t find out until 2011.

As is traditional in MotorStorm trailers, the video ends with a stranded motorcyclist retrieving his bike ready to get back into the action, only to be wiped out by an imposing hazard. First it was a rally car in the midst of a high speed rollover from the first MotorStorm trailer, then a vaulting monster truck in Pacific Rift, but can you guess what it is this time?

While we are all celebrating the belated confirmation of Gran Turismo 5‘s release date, it’s time to analyse the fine details of the latest trailer shown at Sony’s conference.

Me being me, the first thing I noticed were the shots from 00:59, which clearly featured the prestigious Top Gear test track complete with authentic camera angles lifted from the BBC show. Look closely however, and you will notice that his Holiness the Stig is behind the wheel in many of the shots – could this mean we can fulfill our motoring fantasies of being the very being whose genitals are upside down and who once punched a horse to the ground? F1 racing driver Sebastian Vettel can also be seen recording voice samples.

In addition, some beautiful night time shots were in ready supply, and we were also treated to another glimpse of the touted damage modelling. A Mitsubishi Evo X is seen to lose control and veer into a tyre wall, which crucially results in the car going airborne, indicating that rollovers might indeed be possible.

Revel in the excitement and see it all for yourself in the Gran Turismo 5 E3 2010 trailer after the break.

After last week’s glorious live action teaser trailer, Ubisoft has finally unveiled Driver: San Francisco. Taking heed from the original Driver game in 1999, the game will adopt a back to basics approach with an emphasis on what the franchise was originally renowned for: hair raising, movie-style car chases.

As the title implies, the game will be set in San Francisco which again harkens back to the original. There will even be licensed cars for the first time in a Driver game, including Dodge Challengers and Ruf sports cars.

Hit the jump for further information, along with the first screenshots and videos of Driver: San Francisco.

EA’s press conference has opened with the announcement of Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, developed by the team who pioneered the Burnout series, Criterion Games.

Now that the keys have been handed over to Criterion, the franchise is set to go back to its roots with “exotic cars, epic drives and hot pursuits,” with a new career mode that allows you to play as either a racer or as a cop. A pre-rendered trailer was shown featuring intense high speed chases across a desert landscape, complete with Bugatti Veyron police cars.

Criterion also announced a feature entitled “auto log,” which will be the basis for the game’s online and split screen connectivity. This was demonstrated live on stage as the representatives went head to head as a cop and felon respectively.

My only question is this: why has it taken this long for a new Hot Pursuit to arrive? The series has been crying out for this revival for too long now.

Following on from last week’s teaser trailer, a brand new trailer for the upcoming Killzone 3 has surfaced, only this time it features true gameplay footage.

Taken from the “Frozen Shores” mission, the video showcases the brutal melee system that was hinted at in the teaser trailer, along with some new pieces of kit including a Helghast jetpack and WASP missile launcher.

It all looks very slick indeed, and should hopefully live up to its predecessor. Stay tuned for next week’s Sony E3 conference where more details are likely to emerge.
