The trailer is done! We want to drum up some press before release, and not get caught in the trap that most iPhone games fall into with the release-then-market model.

We will have an official website in a few days. Stay tuned!

Yes, you read that title correctly. Today’s Gaming Video of the Day is from a common series of videos in which people take a clip of Hitler and place captions in that have hilarity commence. Click here to see this funny video

Hours ago at the Microsoft E3 Press Conference, Halo 4 was unveiled, along with the news of an entirely new trilogy of Halo games, confirming Halo 5 and 6 as well. Check out the trailer above, and below we’ll break it down for you.

The trailer starts with a beating heart. Cortana’s muffled voice can be heard in the background, urging the Chief to get up. The camera pans to his brain – he wakes up, realizes what’s happening, and jumps out of the cryo-chamber. For one of the only times in the series, Cortana calls the Chief by his first name, John, suggesting that their relationship is a lot closer considering the loneliness they faced at the end of Halo 3. The ship they’re on is exploding, presumably under attack, but from what? The Covenant are largely gone, with most of their religious drive gone after the events of Halo 3, and the Elites and Grunts have partnered with the humans. Then the Chief makes his escape, grabbing what looks to be a pistol – but then fires a grenade, blasting the door in front of him open. As he looks out, we see a closer view of the gun, which looks similar to the Halo 1 pistol but with a grenade attachment on the barrel of the gun. When the camera pans back, we see what is most likely the ship the Chief and Cortana were on at the end of Halo 3, and then – in the background – an enormous artifact (ship? the planet at the end of Halo 3?), whose center (loading bay?) opens up, and the trailer ends abruptly.

There are a number of questions this trailer raises, but most importantly: What will we fight in Halo 4? Since the Covenant have nothing to fight for and the Gravemind has been defeated, Halo 4 has to introduce a new enemy, a new plot arc, and answer deeper questions about the Forerunners and mythos of the Halo universe.

Wow. All I can say is, “Wow!” Battlefield 3 is starting to look like a top tier game. Battlefield was always known as a great multiplayer experience, but here comes one that looks like it could have an entertaining campaign to compliment it. The graphics are absolutely out of this world. While I was quite unsatisfied with Battlefield: Bad Company, Battlefield 3 looks like it could revive the series for me. I don’t want to give away any spoilers for the video (so make sure you watch it!), but I will say that it’s the definition of action packed. It also looks rather realistic (whether that’s good or bad, we won’t find out until release).  Make sure you don’t let this game go under your radar, it’s almost definitely going to be a contender for Game of the Year. It’s supposed to hit shelves late 2011, no definite date as of yet.

Today’s Gaming Video of the Day is the trailer for Modern Warfare 3. It’s full of action, but possibly too much. Call of Duty is known for overdone campaigns with dull stories, but they’re always full of plenty of explosions, WHICH IS WHAT WE LIKE, RIGHT? Wrong. For once it would be nice to see someone actually spend some time on a Call of Duty campaign with a compelling story that people would actually want to follow and be a part of. Instead you get the same run of the mill story with predictable endings but plenty of BOOM! which is apparently all gamers care about. Who knew? But most people aren’t concerned about the campaign, the majority of Call of Duty players are in it for the multiplayer. Rest assured, I can almost guarantee you that this game will be loaded with the same mind numbingly dull multiplayer that the previous titles have had. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

A preview of RAGE, a first person shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world, finds its way on to our Gaming Video of the Day. RAGE looks like a fantastic game that really reminds me of Borderlands. The game features some devastating looking weapons, as well as some incredibly intelligent AI. I will let the video do the rest of the talking as I hit the replay button on my screen. This is sure to be a hit for gamers everywhere. It will release on September 13, 2011 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC. Enjoy and be sure to come back for tomorrow’s Gaming Video of the Day!

The very first Gaming Video of the Day is an absolute classic and probably my favorite Halo video of all time. This Walshy montage (edited by Peridious) was the montage to end all montages back in the day. It has some fantastic music put to it, and the effects were top notch when released. From the mind blowing beginning to the final kill, Halo fans everywhere sat with their jaws dropped as they patiently watched Walshy (of then team Final Boss) take down enemy after enemy. He’s the current Tiger Woods of Halo – he’s had a remarkable career that landed him at the top and was absolutely dominant for a stretch of time. Everybody expected him to win every event he attended. But then he hit a rough patch and started to sink. Everybody knows he could win another event at any time, but just as Tiger Woods fan ask, Walshy fans also ask when that event will be. Continue reading about the video here.
