Dead Space 3's Launch Trailer Murders a Classic

Oh lord

Forget the Necromorphs, the scariest thing about this Dead Space 3 launch trailer is the awful Phil Collins cover. It’s a shame, because the footage itself is exceptional, focusing on several enormous set-pieces from the single-player campaign. We’re guessing that that big centipede thing isn’t popping up to play tag. All will be...

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel Trailer Works Up an Appetite

Should've had a bigger breakfast

The worst part about fighting wars for a living is that there’s rarely time for a mid-morning snack. Take the masked protagonists of upcoming PlayStation 3 shooter Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel – they're too busy dodging bullets and half-volleyed frag grenades to scoff a custard cream or three.
