THQ

The trailers just keep pouring in, and E3 is less than a week away. With this plethora of trailers, we’ve once again compiled them all in our roundup. 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. Square Enix’s reboot of the once invincible Lara Croft, now shows her as youth stepping out into the world only to face the cruelty of nature. After watching the trailer below, I can’t help but be astounded by the graphics and a part of me is more excited about this Lara Croft than the other one. The games release date is still unknown, but take a gander at the new Tomb Raider in this cinematic trailer.


Game Plot Synopsis:
Fresh from academy and in search of lost relics, a 21-year-old Lara Croft journeys to an island off the coast of Japan aboard the Endurance, a salvage vessel helmed by Captain Conrad Roth. Before anchoring at bay, the ship is cleaved in two by an unforeseen storm leaving Croft separated from any other survivors and washed ashore. She must endure physical and emotional torture in order to survive the island.

Voltron Being Turned into a Video Game

Voltron-Close-Up-16-9-10-kc

With the power of 80’s nostalgia by it’s side, not to mention the power of THQ, Voltron will be coming in the form of a video game according to Variety. The franchise originally known to some as Goraion(5 Lions) tugged at the heartstrings of many  children, qhowatched as a giant robot tore various monsters a new lion hole. Rebooted for a spring 2011 release as Voltron Force what a better time to start milking this cash cow then right now. Getting to punch creatures with a hand shaped like a lion’s head, sign me up!

You stuck your tail where?

The mechanical space lions forming Voltron will be part of a “series” of video games, aiming to revitalize the franchise along with new animated TV show, slated to air on Nickelodeon this spring. There is no word yet on a developer, platform or release date it could just mean their blowing exhaust fumes out the ass. Variety says to expect giant robot lions later this fall, but rushing into a game with 7 months of production really isn’t a good idea. Good games take nearly a year to develop just in pre-production alone, if this were to tank then all your gonna be buying is a $60 scooper for the litter box.
