Video Game Round-Up: Trailers for Duke Nukem Forever, Captain America Super Solider , Darksiders II, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Konami’s HD Collection, Kojima News, and New Star Trek Game Announced
E3, the biggest video game Expo in the world, is a week away and yet there is already a shit ton of news and trailers hitting the net. Since we don’t want to bog down our main news feed with a bunch a announcements, we’ve compiled all of today’s gamer bits into one compilation.
After 14 damn years, Duke Nukem Forever is set for a June 14th release. In preparation for the long ass wait, 2K Games and Gearbox Software have released a trailer that has a bit of everything, including some T & A. If the trailer here doesn’t get you pumped to play as the bad ass Duke, then you might be able to get your hands on the demo. Word is going around that members of the First Access Club are getting redeemable demo codes e-mailed to them.
Next batch of news is that Konami just held their pre-E3 press conference. It seems that the company has gone on quite the HD Collection craze as they just announced three of them. First up is a Silent Hill Collection that will contain HD remake of Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3. The next two collections are games from the genius, yes I’m calling him a genius, Hideo Kojima. The Zone of Enders HD Collection will feature Zone of Enders and Zone of Enders: The 2nd Runner. The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will be a collection of Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. All three collection will be available for both the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
Speaking of Kojima, the man will not be at E3 and neither will be the game Metal Gear Rising. He will, however, be holding lectures on video game design this fall at University of Southern California. Who wouldn’t want to get a lecture from the man who once dumped a girl for erasing his Pokemon save file.
