Beowulf: The Film will be out in November, and will be sharing a publicity budget with a Game of the same name. The film is produced by Robert Zemeckis (this isnt the last Zemeckis reference in this weeks Trailer Trash - youve been warned), and features an all star cast including Angelina Jolie, John Malkovitch, Anthony Hopkins, Crispin Glover, and others. This trailer for the game, however, stars a sword falling into a puddle over and over while some repetitive-looking

For a time of peace on earth, theres going to be a lot of stress and killing around this Christmas. Just think about this winters biggest games. Whether its COD4s visceral gunfire tearing apart wall and limb alike, the bloody back-stabbing business of the always-hounded Altair, or Kane and Lynch just being plain old sociopathic, the jovial festival of light and wonder really is looking like a quite brutal one this year.
We need a way to combat this, and preferably one which
David Cage says the sequel-driven games industry is in a vicious cycle...
Nintendo let some small tidbits of info slip today on the upcoming Wii version of Big Brain Academy... and while they haven't officially announced a release date, we believe it will be released during the expansive "launch window" for Wii (sometime between the launch date of November 19 and the end of the year, December 31). We've got one screen and few scant details in the
Of all the major sports, baseball might just be the least accessible as a gaming experience. Between obscure laws like the infield fly rule and knowing what pitch is best to throw in a 2-1 count, it's just not that easy to pick up and play.
That's probably what 2K Sports and Visual Concepts were thinking when they thought up The Bigs, a new baseball title that aims to be an accessible, arcade-style experience. Now we've got some new details and screenshots to share with
Music can really enhance a game's atmosphere. It can take an already great experience and really help sell the mood, something composer Danny Baranowsky has become well-known for. Danny B has worked on a number of indie games, including Cannabalt and Super Meat Boy, and he's now lending his talents to the recently-released The Binding of Isaac and the upcoming Cave Story 3D. We recently had a chance to chat with him to find out about his creative process, and to learn his thoughts on game music in general.

introducing yourself and giving a little bit of background on how you got into

Capcom has given up its list of what's in store for E3 next month in LA. But while most of what's on offer was a given anyway, the publisher has said there'll be two unannounced games on the show floor for the first time.
What they might be, we don't know. But a Dead Rising sequel's been on the cards for a while now. Maybe that'll turn up?
Anyway, here's the list, via IGN:

Bionicle Heroes, the LEGO-based action game from LEGO Star Wars developer Traveller's Tales, is heading to Nintendo's Wii this spring, complete with Wii-mote capability - and we've got the first screens for your eyes to look at. Hit the Images tab above for more shots.
Based around the Bionicle toy universe, you'll be battling laser-spitting Piraka across Voya Nui island in search of the Mask of Life. But you already knew that. Aimed proudly at LEGO-loving urchins, the Wii edition will share a

Nintendo's flagship shooter Metroid Prime 3: Corruption has debuted with a bang, taking the top sales spot in the all-format chart and even outselling 2K's awesome Bioshock in its first week.
Metroid managed to shift over 400,000 copies in total, which must be big news for developers ogling at Nintendo's console and proves that traditional "hardcore" games can still sell on the home of Wii Sports and Cooking Mama.
With Wii releases thin on the ground, Metroid's unlikely to be

The denizens of underwater dystopia Rapture have always had it tough without having to worry about some downed pilot coming in to inject mysterious liquid in his wrists so he can shoot bees at their neighbors. The GamesRadar interns have seized upon this idea and crafted another marvelous short film, poking fun at what really goes on in BioShocks city of artists - not to mention what really gets the Big Daddy angry. The videos only about a minute long, so check it out.
