"AAA: El Videojuego", Best News I've Heard all Day

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. Apparently, someone was listening to my fanboy longings, as the virtually unknown publisher Slang has announced and demoed "AAA: El Videojuego," a wrestling game based on the popular lucha libre promotion Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA), which houses many familiar faces from the lucha bouts on WCW Monday Nitro in the 90's, and more recently, TNA.

Banned "Left 4 Dead 2" Cover Isn't Very Exciting

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.

At Valve's booth you saw one or two instances of the hand image shown in this picture of Chet Faliszeck, and the ring and pinky fingers have been completely bitten off. That's an image Valve claims the ESRB wouldn't allow for future marketing materials.

"Brutal Legend" Dumps Dio for Tim Curry

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. However, with cameos from the likes of Ozzy Ozbourne and Rob Halford, 'Legend' should be an entertaining, if not very fun game. Up until recently, that fun included the vocal talent of one Ronnie James Dio (Black Sabbath, Rainbow, etc.), but that is no longer.

Guitar Hero 5 Band List Announced

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. Unfortunately, they didn’t announce the songs specifically, but instead a giant list of bands has made its way online. This leaves me with more questions then answers though. Sure you can guess that the Queen/David Bowie song will be "Under Pressure", but what about Elton John? Will it be "Tiny Dancer" or "Benny and the Jets"? What the hell is Bob Dylan doing there?

Xbox 360 Project Natal Goes Controller-Less

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. As usual, they've compiled a cheesy "demo" to put it in Kindergarten terms that my feeble brain can understand...

Left 4 Dead 2 Announced

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. The biggest for horror fans is the announcement of Left 4 Dead 2 due Nov. 17th 2009, and the new full trailer, which you can check out below.

Bethesda's "Brink" Teaser Teases Hard

As promised, GameTrailers.tv premiered the teaser trailer for Bethesda Softworks' (Fallout 3) new game scheduled for release in the ultra-futuristic 2010. Unfortunately, it was a teaser in the truest sense in that it barely showed anything...

"Bioshock 2" has a Release Date!

Lord knows I've been foaming at the mouth over "Bioshock 2" for months now, and I finally have a date to mark on the calendar!

Are you ready to start counting down the days until BioShock 2 hits store shelves? You can start now! BioShock 2 will be arriving on October 30th internationally and November 3rd in North America for the Xbox 360®, PLAYSTATION® 3 system, and PC.

9-Minute "Bioshock 2" Walkthrough

The only thing louder than the hype for "Bioshock 2" is the cries of those worrying about the series being "ruined" by the 2nd game. To assuage these fears, 2k has been releasing about as much information as they can without totally revealing critical moments in the game. The latest piece in this effort is a 9 minute demo which seems to be a sped up version of the game's first moments, minus the obligatory "press this button to shoot" prompts.

Wolfenstein's Particle Cannon Lacks Historical Accuracy

Nazis are a pretty solid game staple these days, but the original "Wolfenstein" game and its sequels really deserve the credit for providing the gaming public's first opportunity to crush the bastards. Thankfully, the series has also shirked historical accuracy in favor of various supernatural, sci-fi, and horror elements to spice things up a little bit. Keeping in that tradition, the upcoming "Wolfenstein" title for XBOX360, PS3, and PC, slated for release in July, will feature a beast of a weapon called a "particle cannon." Guess what that does...
