... And The Rest Of The Premieres

Posted by Earnest "Nex" Cavalli on Sat, Dec 12, 2009 at 9:56 PM

While the two-minutes-and-change debut trailer for Halo: Reach was the most hyped debut of Spike's VGAs, it was far from the only premiere.

Beyond the jump you can find a gallery of the clips courtesy Gametrailers.com and the Internet's overwhelming desire to kill terrestrial television.

Batman: Arkham Asylum 2

Tron: Evolution

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

Crackdown 2

Medal of Honor

I admit, I left out a few clips for no reason other than I can't really be asked to give a shit about games based on Green Day or Spike's own television shows. Gametrailers has all the evening's clips if you really must witness the "it's especially not homoerotic if it's in a videogame" action of UFC Undisputed 2010.

So, aside from the Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 clip at the top (which automatically earns a gold star for its use of Mark "Fuck Luke Skywalker, I'm The Joker" Hamill), do any of these clips do anything for you guys?

I'm psyched for Crackdown 2 based on how addictively entertaining the first one was, but that has nothing to do with this trailer. If anything that footage made me cock my head to the side and wonder if developer Ruffian Games had decided to mangle the simple "superheroes with rocket launchers" concept they had been given with extraneous, unnecessary additions.

Like "plot."
