Even though zombie games are a dime a dozen these days, I'm a bit more excited about "Dead Rising 2" than the rest. The original was an innovator in the genre when it came out for the 360 years ago, and was a hit despite it's tremendous difficulty. Late this morning, the first gameplay trailer was thrown on the hungry masses, and I like what I see, especially in the last 10 seconds or so:

Just over a week ago I posted the first "Bioshock 2" game footage, and wondered aloud what sort of teases would come next. As it turns out, "tease" is not in Gamespot's vocabulary, as they've posted a video which at first look answers nearly every basic question that fans of the franchise have so far. Be warned, this video is slightly spoilery in terms of general story and gameplay, but definitely worth a look:

Recent trailers for the upcoming "Ghostbusters" game have definitely planted the seeds of curiosity if not full-on fanboy excitement. As someone who (naively) paid $80 for the Spore "Galactic Edition," I wouldn't be averse to shelling out some extra dough for the special "Slimer Edition" package of the game if it looks promising enough. Unfortunately, I'm not sure that anything short of the second coming of "WWF No Mercy" for N64 would prompt me to drop $129.99 on anything game related that isn't another console entirely. The package itself sounds pretty cool, but the price, not so much.

Last week, we were "treated" to a very short, vague teaser for the upcoming "Saw" video game from Konami. When I first heard about the game, I was curious as to whether or not it would be puzzle based or action based, and as it turns out, it's a bit of both:

The "Bioshock 2" news just keeps pouring in! After months of speculation as to what the game would look/play like, GameTrailers has posted the first gameplay footage, and needless to say, the mouth-foaming has begun:

Last month, I posted a blog about the falling out between Namco and BottleRocket Entertainment over the direction of the "Splatterhouse" remake. Since then, the project is rumored to be in the hands of the team behind "Afro Samurai," which garnered mixed reviews upon its release. Despite that, BottleRocket is still a bit miffed over allegations of "underperformance," and recently released a statement to address those allegations:

"Call of Duty 5: World at War" is one of those games that has eluded me since I first purchased my 360. My stoner roommate wanted me to buy it, and all of my friends that play games online have at one time or another asked me if I have it. As expressed on the podcast, hype tends to affect me a great deal when making purchasing and viewing decisions, but I can eventually broken down with the right sell, especially if "more nazi zombies" are part of that sell:

Last week, the "Bioshock 2" hype train officially left the station with the unveiling of There's Something in the Sea, an interactive collection of news clippings, photos, and other teasers for the upcoming game. This week, we get another sneak peak at some art from the upcoming game via the april cover of Game Informer magazine.
