GameTrailers Pre-E3 Trailers

gttv_logoE3 doesn’t start until Tuesday but GameTrailers has some early goodies for us!

Last night GTTV aired what they called VGA’s E3 First Look 2009 on Spike. So aside from the sad attempt by Skipe to try to shove the lackluster VGAs down our throat (the freaking thing takes place in December and has nothing to do with E3!) and the mandatory girl who obviously knows nothing about video games (sorry Rose McGowan), we actually had some pretty cool stuff.

Some of the stuff didn’t air last night but has since popped up on GameTrailers.com.

Not everything was great but nothing sucked (as opposed to the VGAs). I’m going to post the trailers that I like most.

On a sidenote I wish I could embed the HD version from GT but WordPress doesn’t support that so I have to go through the Tube.

Enjoy!

The Saboteur: amazing trailer, ambiance and art direction. I’m feeling good!

Mafia II: Mafia II!!!! Need I say more??? This is going to be epic!

Mass Effect 2: looks fraking sweet!! Awesome music too

Arkham Asylum: Joker gameplay looks awesome and Mark Hamill is the best

Dragon Age Origins: the Grey Warden! Great trailer!

Alpha Protocol: very effective trailer with good gameplay promise!

Dante’s Inferno: cool trailer, I like the ambiance

Brink: good but not much info. It’s the next Bethesda so it has my attention

Just Cause 2: very nice surprise, looks like loads of fun

Lost Planet 2: a nice effective trailer

Brutal Legend: as offbeat as you can expect from Tim Schaeffer

More trailers where shown like Madden, NHL 10, DJ Hero…. but these are, to me, the most noteworthy.

E3 Overhaul Confirmed

As I posted yesterday, this year E3 will become bigger and hopefully better. It seems G4 was right and Newsweek was wrong since the show will take place Tuesday June 2 through Thursday June 4 and will not be open to public. However audience invites will be more numerous and hopefully will include us bloggers/journalists 🙂
Booth size will also be bigger, doing away with the 20×20 feet space limit.

PSP-3000 Woes

The portable console just came out in Japan and apparently people are already complaining.  The problem apparently is coming from the scanlines which are supposed to improve contrast and rendering.
The screens speak for themselves and apparently since the problem is from the new screen there can be no software update. Which means if you don’t like you can re-buy the old one…or wait for a new version.

Gears of War 2 Banned in Germany and Possibly Japan

This trend is really starting to annoy me (and I’m mincing words). You would think that democracies would be smart but this is no different than Book Burning or the Church censorship of the Middle Ages.
These countries don’t shy away from releasing every other porn movie (especially Japan which borders on the underage sex cult) and violent movie out there so what stops them from putting an ‘Adult’ label on the cover and give it a rest???
I guess Germans will have to buy their games on Amazon.uk……ooooohhh maybe the police is going to knock on their door for contraband importation…..
Whatever.
