We’ve featured before the video of 100 Ways to Die in Skyrim, now we’ve got a video of 42 Ways to Die in Saints Row: The Third. If you like watching people bite the dust in video games it’s your lucky day, there are some phenomenal deaths in here. Like being juggled in the air by explosive rounds or being smashed in the head by a mace. Good, wholesome stuff. (TDW: Geek)

From sexy and improved Tomb Raider, down to fly mobsters with guns, we’ve got the anticipated and random trailers for games coming out soon. Now let’s get started!

Tomb Raider Trailer

Tomb Raider gets a new look and attitude that has all the boys wanting to come over to her yard, whether she has milkshakes or not.
