It's a free downloadable game for your computer about the speeder bike part of Tron
Find downloads on the side bar and choose which version to download depending on your computer.
It's got online multiplayer, it's customizable, and you can host your own server, all for free. It's a simple game so it has a very quick download and small file size too.
The premise is everyone has a speeder bike. The game is a few years old and was based on the first Tron movie so the bikes move on 90 degree turns (except not on all servers). In the most basic mode, everyone is just trying to kill each other by outmanuevering opponents and forcing opponents to run into a wall. There are other modes such as fortress where you try to capture the enemies base by occupying it while you or your teammates defend your own base. There are a variety of other modes such as capture the flag or races because all the content is user created.
There you have it. It's free downloadable game so try it out if you want.
The trailer for the portable Blazblue Continuum Shift II was released awhile ago and it shows some of the new features to be included.
The game will include Continuum Shift's story with some added content to it, new maps for legion mode, and a new abyss mode where you'll probably have to fight countless enemys at a time or something like that.
The only things I didn't see was if everyone's unlimited forms were unlocked at start and any online announcement.

The third patch was released today so that means new character and apparently new gameplay mechanics.
When I saw the news this morning, I was only expecting the new character, but apparently, this update brings us really close to what Blazblue Continuum Shift II is in terms of gameplay and balance. This official trailer shows it all.

Here's your chance to try out the Call of Duty Elite service first
You might need to set up an account at callofduty.com and hope for the e-mail saying you've been invited. This was how most of us got into the beta for World at War.
The e-mail says you can connect with other people who play CoD, test your skills in tournaments and events that award virtual and real prizes, and access personal stats and strategic info to up your game skills. Basically, it's going to be Halo Waypoint for Call of Duty. I didn't really use Waypoint so I didn't think it was popular enough to copy.
Here's a link to the sign-up page so you might be able to bypass registering completely.

Deathsmiles 2X is coming straight to Games on Demand in North America without a localized disc release.
It's not localized so the dialog and cutscenes are going to be in Japanese but necessary stuff is going to be translated. It's going to be $30 or 2400 microsoft points. Also, the games been out for over a year in Japan.
This is also a landmark occasion for Cave (the developers) because now they can get their shooters in North America without having to pay manufacturing, shipping, etc.
Here's a gameplay video and an official trailer. I'm guessing about the story here but it looks like Evil Santa stole Christmas. Your guess is as good as mine. The four characters from the first one are here and it looks like there's two more thats included with this one.

Egoraptor hilariously reviews Castlevania 2 and contrasts it to the original Castlevania.
Egoraptor, creator of the Awesome series and just a great and funny flash animator, just released a review video of Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest. Expect hilarity. Also, there's a lesson on gaming in general at the end of the video.
Since I'm not going to use my beta codes, I'm just going post them here.
I don't want to give my codes to just anyone so I'm going to post mine here.
And since this story is a little bare, I'm going to post this erotic remix of Heatmans stage from Megaman 2 I found.
This is a board game based on the Gears of War series. I'm freaking serious.
The games being made by Fantasy Flight Games, who've apparently made board games out of Civilisation, BattleStar Galactica, and StarCraft, so they presumably know what they're doing (I wouldn't know, I would never play those).
What gets me though, is that it says "This fully cooperative design by Corey Konieczka pits 1–4 players against a cunning and relentless foe, and is based on the wildly popular series of third-person shooters by Epic Game." Who the fuck is going to play cooperatively by themselves. It boggles the mind.
The games been in development for about three years now. It looks like it was based on the first one but in this picture you can see a Kantus figurine from the second game.
I know this kind of humor isn't for everybody but there isn't anything better than ruining someone's day who takes a game too seriously.
Warning, foul language. This is the internet after all.
So, I'll start off with Team Roomba, who's basically inspiring this story. This video shows the effects of a little kid soundboard and a game where you can't mute. "HEY GUYS, CAN YOU HEAR ME?"
They have 2 other griefing vids so you should definitely watch those too. Team Roomba's channel.
The next few are going to be Ventrilo harassments. Ventrilos are kind of like Xbox live parties which are chat rooms with headsets. But, some of these rooms are public so anyone can go in. The best thing is that some of these griefers have the tech know-how to record some of these victims and playback and alter their voices.
This specific video has one of the greatest pay-offs I think I've ever heard.
This next video is a striking blow to internet tough guys everywhere. It's always satisfying when someone like this gets put in their place.
This one's a favorite of mine because this guy just cracks and has one of the most epic rages of all time at the end of the video.
Here's the last one I'll post. This was one was done on xboxlive and just like the others, it shows how much of a sense of humor some people have.
I seriously love this kind of stuff. On every one of these videos, I busted out laughing the first time I saw them. I just can't contain myself against the unexpected. I wish this kind of thing happened to me more but the closest I've ever been was when my friend got on Gears of War, played for a while, then out of nowhere, put his mic in his mouth and just started yelling. He was booted instantly but I was still laughing by the time he made it back in the room.

IGN shows off a trailer at PAX demonstrating and explaining several new game mechanics and changes.
I'm definitely looking forward to this reboot of Counter Strike. I think I'd rather play it on PC though because, if you didn't catch it, console players won't be able to set-up custom games.
Islands of Wakfu is an action adventure game based on the Wakfu universe coming to the Xboxlive arcade.
I've been playing the Wakfu beta and upon checking the site, I found out that they have an Xboxlive arcade game currently in development.
Developed by Ankama Play, the game has been in the works for a while but the release date is still to be announced.
Here is the gameplay trailer. It appears you control a Girl named Nora and are assisted by her dragon brother Efrim.
