Ah, sweet Project Offset. There are few games that have us as intrigued as Project Offset. Initially touted as something of a squad-based, fantasy first person shooter, it had us hooked from the word go. And then almost all traces of the game vanished. Sure, we had snippets of info here and there: a teaser or two, a viral campaign of sorts (that has since disappeared). But then, nothing. Until now, it seems, as a trailer of the game has been leaked onto the internet. On the official website, the Project Offset team pleads that news sites not show the video. Considering said plea is actually the first time the Project Offset site's news section has been updated since October of 2006, we can hardly deny our news hungry readers such a tender morsel. Watch the video above -- which sports first and third person viewpoints and touts 5 distinct classes -- and dream.
Again, we've picked out some of the newest and most interesting E3 trailers and gameplay videos in hopes of feeding your insatiable E3 appetite. Above, we've got your The Simpsons Game trailer and after the break we've embedded the SEGA Rally Revo trailer along with gameplay footage from Medal of Honor: Airborne, Hellboy: The Science of Evil and Army of Two. But be forewarned, Army of Two features lots of man screaming and a very tender "healing" moment. We'll let you view that on your own. More videos embedded after the break.
Things are chugging along here at E3 with new trailers and game videos hitting the web at a rapid fire pace. So again we rounded up the latest and greatest in visual media for your viewing pleasure. To kicks things off we recommend giving Microsoft's Xbox 360 video compilation a watch as it features a bunch of 360 games you'll be playing this year. It's a great primer video. Also, after the break you can view trailers from games featured at last night's conference including a lengthy Too Human trailer, Call of Duty 4 demo, Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed demo, Rock Band and Project Gotham Racing 4. Get to watching soldier, it's your fanboy duty!
Our buddies at Gamertag Radio got their eager mitts on this new gameplay video from Virtua Tennis 3. Having watched the video, we can safely say that it's definitely tennis. Given the series' history, VT3 will likely be a pretty good tennis game, too. We're glad the 360 allows for custom soundtracks though, because the music sounds like it was ripped directly from the Sonic Adventure series. Of course, the big question is whether or not Virtua Tennis 3 can compete with the likes of Top Spin. We'll find out soon enough when the game releases in March. In the meantime, watch the video and tell us what you think.
Xbox.com has published several videos shot by Major Nelson at CES. Major takes time to check out Guitar Hero II, IPTV, XBLA, the HD-DVD player, and even takes a moment to chat with Peter Moore. We recommend the Guitar Hero II, IPTV, XBLA, and Peter Moore vids especially. The Guitar Hero II video will get you a glimpse at another 360 exclusive song from Pearl Jam (as well as a chance to watch Major Nelson try to play GHII and hold a mic at the same time). The XBLA video gives a quick look at Worms, Castlevania: SOTN, and Heavy Weapon. Players should be happy to know that Castlevania features an enhanced graphics mode (we're not sure which mode is used in the video though). Pause the XBLA video during the Worms interview to see the (rather anemic) selection of weapons. There are lots of videos. Hit the "read" link to check 'em out.
Oh, and our condolences to the employees working at the Zune lounge.

When the best thing about your Halo machinima site is a picture Chuck Norris as Master Chief, you're in trouble. You're also probably trapped in the throes of puberty. Reader Bill says his Mom won't let him play Saints Row. He also says his site "so horrible it's funny" and needs some traffic. I'd say the emphasis is on horrible, but here's a little link love to take the sting out of Mom's censurous attitude towards simulated gangland violence.
If the impending release of Dead or Alive 4 hasn't got you frothing at the mouth, then how about some videos to go with the news snippets trickling on to the web?
As usual, Xboxyde has come up trumps with these videos, covering the game's intro and (naturally) some fighting. It's looking good, although eagle-eyed DoA fans are already marking the similarities between previous versions and the next-gen iteration.
