    “Red Faction: Battlegrounds” announcement complete with trailer

    THQ’s downloadable title “Red Faction: Battlegrounds” is pitting mechs against tanks in what they consider to be an age-old debate. The franchise’s first-ever downloadable title comes in 2011 for purchase on Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network. The multiplayer vehicular combat game lets you demolish anything that gets between you and your objective. The game, developed by THQ Digital Studios UK and Volition, Inc., lets you enter either local or online multiplayer game modes, which include Survival, Annihilate and Flag Frenzy modes. The best part? Ranking up nets you access to bonus content playable in upcoming title “Red Faction: Armageddon.” (Since Battlegrounds doesn’t appear to be in development for PC, you might be out of luck there, unless your 360 gameplay translates into PC rewards. I have asked and will update if I receive an answer.) For anyone at Gamescom 2010, the game will have a playable demo in Hall

    “Gun Loco” from Square Enix promises guns and crazy action in the name alone

    Gun Loco is coming to us in 2011 from Square Enix Japan, and it looks nothing like what we’d expect from them – namely, because it’s a third-person shooter, not a JRPG. Not to say that they haven’t strayed from that path before, but Gun Loco looks…well, pretty loco. It’s in the name, after all. The game will be an Xbox 360-exclusive run-and-gun title featuring what Square Enix calls “unique and memorable characters.” If the screenshot above (and the ones in the gallery below) are any indicator, you may be remembering these characters, all right – in your nightmares. Eep. The game takes place on a lonely prison planet at the far reaches of the solar system. Anarchy reigns supreme, and factions battle one another for supremacy. You’ll be fighting each region’s inmates on maps patterned after the world’s previous civilizations. Gameplay seems reminiscent of the parkour of Mirror’s Edge,

    Latest trailer for “Tony Hawk: Shred”

    Have you ever wanted to watch a pro skateboarder and snowboarder lean and spin on a piece of plastic on the most basic of living room rugs, all set in a giant white space? Well, then this trailer for “Tony Hawk: Shred” definitely has you covered, and it adds music that seems more appropriate for ModNation Racers, to boot. This gamescom 2010 trailer features real-life boarders Louie Vito and Chaz Ortiz spinning around on a set that looks like it came straight from an IKEA catalogue (no, really, it does look a lot like that). We also get a first look at this game’s faux board, which appears to be optimal for doing 180s, 360s, 720s…you know, the stuff where geometry actually helps you out in these sports. That said, with all the moving around you have to do on this board, maybe the days of actually accomplishing a 1440-degree

    Review: Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour vol 6

    I am going to try to keep the number of spoilers down. But in the end, just buy the whole series! You won’t be disappointed! BUY Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim was HUGE at San Diego Comic Con this year. All the buzz was about the upcoming movie. Many fans were picking up book 1 at SDCC, which is encouraging, but really they should have picked up all 6. There are six volumes of Scott Pilgrim and those six took a little over six years to come out. Volume six ends the series, but there are many of you that haven’t picked up the graphic novel yet and you should. The Scott Pilgrim series is amazing for it’s ability to fit in charming wit with video game humor. It really is a book that is almost an ode to our generation and what we love in video games and music.
