PROTOTYPE 2 - Live Action Trailer Gets All Sentimental on You

There sure has been a slew of live action trailers for games in recent years, and I am still not sure how I feel about them.

GHOST RECON: FUTURE SOLDIER - First Time Beta Gameplay

Now for you Call of Duty/Battlefield players, don't think you will pick up how to play the game immediately and go on killing spree, because this is not that type of game.

An image from this trailer was passed around yesterday and many thought that it was a screenshot of DLC for Skyrim. Well, those people were wrong. The photo that was being passed around was a screen-grab from the latestBethesda produced game, DishonoredDishonored is being developed by Arkane Studios, which is the same team that did BioShock 2.

Debut Trailer - DRAGONBALL Z for KINECT Makes You Look Like a 10 Year Old

We knew this day would come; a fighting game based off Dragonball Z using our full body motions to pull off attacks famous from the show. But then again, I'm sure we all imagined that it'd look a lot more like the indie film Turbo than what we're actually being sold... for more click here.
