Dexter videogame gets teaser trailer

I love me some Dexter. It's easily one of the best shows on television and one of my personal favorites (right up there with Supernatural). So, when news that the series (which follows the life of forensic specialist Dexter Morgan–who happens to be a serial killer who kills other serial killers) was getting a videogame adaptation broke awhile back, I was nervous.

Games based on movies and TV shows tend to suck. I'd hate for a Dexter game to join the long list of failed videogame adaptations.

Anyway, here's the first look at the forthcoming game from Icarus Studios (which will appear on the PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, and the iPhone). I'm hoping this is iPhone footage because the graphics are pretty rough.

The Horror Geek presents: First trailer of Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

I forgot to post this yesterday, but just in case you missed it, here's the trailer for Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles.

This Wii-exclusive is a sequel to the on-rails shooter Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and promises to take players back to some classic Resident Evil environments and let them shoot hordes of flesh eating zombies while doing it.

Expect to waggle your Wii-mote at The Darkside Chronicles later this year.

The Horror Geek presents: Capcom brings some Resident Evil love to the Wii

We've all been waiting for the Resident Evil Wii news hinted at recently, and today we finally have it.

Capcom announced Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles for Nintendo's popular home console today. The Darkside Chronicles is a brand-spankin' new adventure, a sequel to Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles.

If that weren't enough zombie slaughtering news, there's more. Capcom also announced new Wii versions of Resident Evil Zero and the GameCube Resident Evil remake as part of a "Resident Evil Classics" line of titles.

Video: Sonic Unleashed speed run illustrates Sonic's former glory

After the launch of Sega's ridiculous Sonic and the Black Knight, it is fitting that I came across this video (posted on Sega's PR blog no less). It is a speed run done in Sonic Unleashed for the PlayStation 3, by an unknown Japanese gamer who displayed a level of skill and reflexes in the game that definitely deserved recording and saving for prosperity.

In the level, the unknown player puts Sonic through his paces at breakneck speed. From the word "GO!", he is a blue blur and more amazingly, the world around him is nothing but a beige blur. Okay it is just a speed run, but when you watch enough of them starring Sonic, and especially those taken from the new Sonic titles, if you're like me, you get an intense feeling of nostalgia.

HIGH Teen Girl Squad choose-your-own adventure mini-games.
