We're so excited
As we've probably written approximately eighteen times now, House Of The Dead: Overkill was one of our favourite Nintendo Wii titles. So we're ridiculously stoked to see the silly on-rails shooter make the jump to PS3 with full PlayStation Move support. The game's vulgar, potty-mouthed and downright ugly, but that's absolutely part of the charm. Catch the trailer after the jump for..
Some people are absolutely terrified of clowns, but we don't really understand their trepidation
So they have hideous hair, abnormal grins and way too much make-up, but what's so frightening about... Oh right. Yeah, perhaps we do get it. If clown clowns frighten you when they're being worn by normal human-beings, then you probably shouldn't think about the possibility of a zombie outbreak taking..
Normally we'd stop by here for a witty comment or two
But there are just no words. Remember when we rated House Of The Dead: Overkill as one of our most anticipated PlayStation 3 games of the year? This trailer is why.</em>
Strip-clubs and grindhouse movies go together like cheese and pineapple, so its no surprise to see SEGA linger heavily on Baiyou City's 'Pink Pussycat' in its latest trailer for House Of The Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut
As one YouTube commenter crudely pointed out: in House Of The Dead, the cat eats you. We like that one.
Showing 3D on 'ye olde' computer monitors is hard -- but give SEGA credit for trying
In order to promote the (anaglyphic and stereoscopic) 3D support in its upcoming rails-shooter, House Of The Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut, SEGA's released a couple of new screenshots of the game that work with those cheap red and blue glasses. Try it out. Given the game's grindhouse vibe, this is actually pretty..
SEGA's somehow managed to maintain the quality of its trailers despite House Of The Dead: Overkill spanning two platforms
Check out the latest trailer for the PS3's Extended Cut version after the jump. We actually got our hands on the game earlier in the week. You can read our to-the-point impressions through here.
Consider this less of a preview and more of a confirmation; House Of The Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut is exactly what you'd expect it to be
We got to check out the game's Hospital stage and giggled our through the demo as the game's sheer stupidity resurfaced itself. The PlayStation Move controller works perfectly, and the experience is enhanced by...

There was a point in the Nintendo Wii's lifespan where the console was dominating the sales charts but disappointing hardcore gamers
Long-time Nintendo fans were tired of Wii Fit and Wii Play, they wanted something meatier to get their teeth into. But with developers ploughing the majority of their resources into the more traditional XBOX 360 and...
SEGA's lifted the lid on House Of The Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut's second exclusive stage
Entitled 'Creeping Flesh', the level is set inside the "cosy confines of an abattoir taken over by a meaty disease of sorts". Lovely. 'Creeping Flesh' once again sees the return of Varla and Candy, as they fight against a slew of monsters and creepy flesh that has taken hold of the abattoir..
The new content in the 'Extended Cut' version of House Of The Dead: Overkill has forced the game to be cut from Australian release
The Australian ratings board refused the release of the PS3 remake as the nation's new R18 rating has yet to go into effect. The good news is that the original Wii version of the game did get a release in Australia in 2009, meaning SEGA must have gone absolutely nuts..
They will strip
.. Your flesh</em>. Is there anything else SEGA really needs to say about the first of two exclusive levels for House Of The Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut?

Naked Terror is the first of..
We've said it once and we'll say it again: House Of The Dead: Overkill Extended Cut is one of our most anticipated PlayStation 3 games of the year
The original Wii title was a roller-coaster ride of eff-bombs, gore and zombies giving birth to other zombies. So we can't wait to experience the whole affair in high-definition with PlayStation Move. Check out the latest trailer for evidence of the..
When we say "purrrdy", we also mean "a bit gross"
But that's the whole point; House Of The Dead: Overkill is a nasty, gory on-rails shooter. And it's brilliant. Hot on the heels of yesterday's big blow-out, SEGA's sent us some brand new screens of the upcoming PS3 title. Embedded above is a shot from Overkill's Carnival level. Yes — there are zombies dressed as clowns. We told you this game was..

That's exactly what SEGA's House Of The Dead: Overkill Extended Cut is, a self-proposed "longer, harder and gorier" version of the ultra-sweary Wii light-gun shooter. Posting on the PlayStation Blog this afternoon, SEGA's revealed the game's official boxart —..
Extended Cut on the way
SEGA's House of the Dead: Overkill on Wii was a fantastically gory and ludicrously tasteless reimagining of the classic House of the Dead arcade series, and now the game is coming to PS3 in the lengthily-named House of the Dead: Overkill — Extended Cut. As well as full support for PlayStation Move and stereoscopic 3D, we...
Fact: one of the best games available on the Nintendo Wii is House Of The Dead: Overkill
It released at a time when everyone was demanding "core" titles for Nintendo's system, only to be disappointed by their on-rails nature. But House Of The Dead: Overkill was genuinely one of the good ones, boasting an outrageously self-aware grindhouse style that was both hilarious and perfect..
House Of The Dead: Overkill is one of our favourite games on the Nintendo Wii
It's a no-nonsense entry in the rails-shooter franchise which plays heavily on the grindhouse horror movie scene with its gritty presentation and ridiculous narrative. NintendoLife reports that a sequel is well under way and should be released sometime in early or mid-2011. No platforms are mentioned, though it's safe to..
