xbox 360

When I first bought my Xbox two years ago, I figured that I wouldn't be using the online component much, and just buying big name titles and staying on top of the current generation of games.

G4's X-Play recently released a new preview of "Left 4 Dead 2" and to be honest; it looks pretty damn good. Showcasing the four new characters, new melee weapon combat and the swamp level from one of the five new campaigns, it looks like a good change of pace.

The New Xbox Experience (NXE) was shipped with the promise of all of these amazing features, many of which were sadly absent from the first iteration.

For whatever reason, I haven't bought a non-XBLA game in months. It could be the fact that it's the summer (yeah right), but it's more likely the fact that nothing has particularly tickled my fancy of late.

If "Left 4 Dead 2" is anything, it will be bloody, violent, and a hell of a lot of fun. With all of the hooplah about its "rushed" release, I would have thought that the cover of the game would be the least of everyone's concern. Apparently, I was wrong.

I haven't spoken much about the upcoming metal-infused adventure game "Brütal Legend" starring Jack Black, mostly because I think Metalocalypse took metal irony, perfected it, and then beat it to death.

With E3 off and running this week, we're getting a ton of new game announcements. We've known that Guitar Hero 5 has been in the works for a while, but we now have some information on some of the music that will be featured.

E3 is in full gear and announcements are coming in from all angles. So far, the buzz seems to be the strongest for XBOX 360's "Project Natal," a set of technologies that allow for full voice, face, and movement detection without the use of a controller.

This week is the kick off of E3, the mecca of the video game industry. Microsoft kicked off the event with their press conference filled with their new game announcements.

As promised, GameTrailers.tv premiered the teaser trailer for Bethesda Softworks' (Fallout 3) new game scheduled for release in the ultra-futuristic 2010.
