E3 2008 - The Trailers

I've compiled a list of (most of) the amazing trailers that have come out this week. Gametrailers.com rocks for getting all of these up super quickly. If you have a Xbox LIVE, you can download all the 360 trailers and watch them on your nice big TV.
This isn't everything. I just sort of picked important stuff or cool looking stuff. There are plenty more. Some of these are trailers, some of these just show game play. Check out the site if you want to see some more footage of the games.


Prince of Persia: Yet another re-imagining of the series, and this one is completely gorgeous. A whole new style; the entire game looks like one breathtaking painting come to life.

Fable 2: October can't come soon enough. Lots of oldies are back, and a lot of new stuff polishes it off.

Mirror's Edge: Which makes sure to note - this is all in-game footage. Notice how certain items and pathways turn red - this marks the path you should follow in the game.

Dead Space:

The Last Remnant: My inner JRPG nerd is absolutely bursting with excitement for this game. Really excited.

Final Fantasy XIII: Now on Xbox 360! Thanks, Square!

Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise: Now with more pinatas! That you upload via cardboard! I don't actually know how that's going to work, but it's an upsetting feature.

Ghostbusters: With original movie cast voice acting!

Star Ocean: The Last Hope: Beautiful, and currently exclusive to the 360

Fallout 3
I really don't think I need to say anything here. Just see for yourself.

Gears of War 2 See the meat shield tactic at work.

Mega Man: I lied. There is a new Mega Man. Classic Mega Man, for the console arcades (ie: Live, PSN, Wiiware)

Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party: Yes, he is using the balance board with his butt.

Unreal Tournament III: Now on 360 with...Gears of War content on disc? Not sure what that means.

The Wheelman: Now with more Vin Diesel!

Valkyria Chronicles: Is NOT a PSP game.

Resident Evil 5: It's Resident Evil. So...yeah.

Resistance 2: Or, how to take down a really big frakkin' monster. And I mean really big.

Sonic Unleashed: Pretty sure you've never seen a Sonic like this before.

Killzone 2:


Star Wars Force Unleashed:
Rancor Battle!

Quantum of Solace: James Bond! Complete with Daniel Craig.

M.A.G. : Massive Action Game. Super original, right? Hope it can live up to it's 200+ players single map battle promise.

God of War 3: One whole (pre-rendered) minute with Kratos!

My Sims Kingdom:
Desert Island action!

Wii Music: Play instruments, record sessions, conduct an orchestra.

Animal Crossing City Folk: Lots of old, a little new. Now with live voice chat!

DCU Online: Play your character alongside DCU characters!

Flower: Zen gameplay. Blow the flower petals with your wind (aka: six axis)

Fatal Frame 4: Terrify yourself on the Wii! Screw Resident Evil and Silent Hill. This series is the one to play if you want to be scared out of your skull.

Street Fighter IV:

Alpha Protocol:
It's like Mass Effect but with Spies. And it's awesome. Interview and image stills.

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia: DS vampire hunting

Harvest Moon Tree of Tranquility: Harvest Moon for the Wii.

Dragon Age Origins:
Yay Bioware!

Lord of the Rings Conquest: LotR 3rd person shooter/action.

Rise of the Argonauts: I'm guessing it's about Jason and the Argonauts.

Halo Wars: Halo RTS. Finally a Halo I might actually be good at.

Sims 3
Now you can run, in real time, all over your town!

Yeah I want to play Halo Wars also, Im a huge RTS fan, but I just dont know how good its going to be on console. Im really hyped for Gears of War2...the online play is going to be sick. I downloaded a new theme for my xbox yesterday. Resident Evil 5, looks so sick, I cant wait to use those new weapons and just blow peoples heads off. Those are just my favorites, theres a ton of new good stuff coming out.
