I’m back, right here, right now with a brand new episode of Trailer-Gasm! bringing you some of the best trailers of the last 7 days, on this weeks Gasm-tastic menu we go back in time with Atari, we look at a new rival to the Assassin’s Creed franchise and head back in for some more dragon action… So lets get on with it shall we?
Think of the most trailblazing games of all time, I’m not talking about the first games to use polygons instead of pixels I’m talking about the kind of games which first made games fun, games like Pong, Tetris and Tempest, chances are the very games you are thinking of are all bundled together for your uber-retro loving selves in Atari Greatest Hits Vol. 1 heading to Nintendo DS this November.
Now if your not getting enough of a space-shooting fix from your consoles with Portal, Gears of War, Killzone, Halo, Singularity among others then perhaps you might like to have a wander over to your PC in the corner and head over to Steam and take a look at Shattered Horizon.
We head back to Atari for our next title, demonstrating the extensive ‘wardrobe’ of the lead character, heading to XBLA, PSN and PC this month its ultra stylised cartoon caper Blade Kitten. Next up is a title which simply can’t hide away from the game it is trying to emulate, that of Assassin’s Creed, ranging from templars to swords to leaps of faith, this title has it all but will it be enough to topple the Ubisoft juggarnaut? Only time will tell, out for 360 and PC early 2011 its The First Templar.
Dragon Age: Origins was only released in November and the latest DLC is only weeks old but already we have had the announcement for a sequel and now here we have the trailer, battling its way to our consoles in March 2011 its Dragon Age II.
So five trailers and 10 minutes later and we are all wrapped up for another week, with new trailers and announcements every week I’m sure there will be plenty more trailers fighting over a place in next weeks episode, so until then have a great week and a great Trailer-Gasm!
