Welcome to 1UP Theater, our new weekly feature brought to you courtesy of the guys over at GameVideos. Every Friday we'll be rounding up the biggest, most popular, newest, and most interesting videos that have popped up on GameVideos in the last week -- both official trailers and demos and user-created material! Here's what you can watch this week by keeping your station tuned to GameVideos and 1UP: The Big Shots
E3 2007 may have been crazy-busy, but 1UP and EGM head honchos Sam Kennedy and Dan Hsu still managed to grab Phil Harrison for a big 15-minute interview. They cover a whole bunch of PlayStation issues, so if you're at all wondering what's up for Sony's future, check out the video or read our highlights.
Blizzard. Starcraft 2. Mr. James Mielke and Mr. Jeff Green (and a teensy bit of Mr. Sean Molloy). Go, watch, and then read our massive hands-on preview.
Boogie "Sing It" Trailer + "Make a Video" Gameplay -- If you thought the Wii was good at making people look like fools before, you ain't seen nothing yet. This short trailer for EA's almost-ready-for-release Boogie highlights gamers singing along to "Brick House". Also, you can make videos of said performance. Hillarious!
Call of Duty 4 "C4" Gameplay -- As one of the biggest shooter franchises in existence right now and one of the most anticipated games of the year coming out of E3, Call of Duty 4 has some lofty expectations to fulfill. This short video sample of multiplayer is a pretty sweet reminder of why we're excited, though.
Crysis "Epic Story" Trailer -- Not content with simply giving us a release date, Electronic Arts also released this brand-new story-centric trailer for the still-amazing-looking Crysis. On the one hand, the writing and voiceover stuff is all a bit corny and heavy-handed. On the other, OMFG CRYSIS SO PRETTY, etc.
Dewy's Adventure Boss Battle -- Dewy's Adventure is the type of game we affectionately refer to as a "CUTE ATTACK ^____^"! In all honesty, we only have the vaguest clue what's going on in this boss battle from the game, but there's no escape from the insane levels of happy on display here.
DiRT "Damage System" Trailer -- DiRT is a fun damned racing game, and one of the reason's why is its impressively extensive damage system for cars, fences, and pretty much everything else in the game. This vid focuses on just that, much to our unending glee.
Dynasty Warriors 6 Japanese Debut Trailer -- Graphically, the next-gen-only Dynasty Warriors 6 is a noticeable step up from its predecessors. Gameplay-wise, though... well, I don't want to shock anyone, but it looks like it involves slashing at large groups of enemies with your weapon over and over again.
Face Training DS Japanese Trailer -- Brain training? To hell with your brain training! We have FACE training now. I'll let this one speak for itself... in Japanese while middle-aged Japanese women slowly make their mouths wider. I'm going to have nightmares.
God of War: Chains of Olympus Full Demo -- We're still not 100% convinced that a portable version of God of War can live up to the thrills achieved in the first two PS2 games, but this video of the demo of Chains of Olympus gives us a good feeling that they're on the right track.
Guilty Gear XX Japanese "Opening" Video + Johnny vs. Venom Battle -- The latest in the Guilty Gear series returns to its hardcore fighting game roots on the Wii. This intro gives us a pretty rockin' idea of the enormous list of characters to choose from, including the just-plain-awesomely-named Sol Badguy. I wish my parents were so cool as to name me Sol Badguy. We've also got some gameplay footage of what a match in the game will look like.
Madden 08 Wii "Features" Trailer -- It seems a little bit shady that one of the major features they're pumping for Madden NFL 08 for the Wii is that it will have all the normal modes we'd expect from a "full" Madden game. Still, this trailer also reveals some interesting new stuff, including the addition of mini-games and a strange "Family Mode" that removes the need for the nunchuk.
Need For Speed ProStreet "Smoke" Trailer -- After seeing the latest vid for this year's iteration of the Need For Speed franchise, there's one thing we can say for sure: the game will future pretty smoke. No idea what that means for gameplay, but there it is.
Pixel Junk Racers "Fireball Frenzy" -- This PlayStation Network downloadable game definitely has a unique arcade racer look going on, but we still don't know exactly what's going on in gameplay. Take a look for yourself.
Pre-Teen Raider Trailer -- The Tomb Raider Re\Visioned series of cartoons based on Lara Croft was announced months ago, but my most eagerly anticipated episode is just now hitting. You're probably laughing at the title, but with comic book hotshot Gail Simone writing and great animation studio Six Point Harness drawing it up, this should actually be quite good when it debuts on August 9th. No, seriously.
WolfQuest "Survive the Wild" Trailer -- For any polish it (or its trailer) lacks, WolfQuest seems to at least be pushing a rather unique online experience. With the Minnesota Zoo backing the game as an educational experience for kids, it'll be interesting to see if this one catches on.
Fable 2 Video Diary Ep. 2: Combat -- With this video, Molyneux and team finally start going into some specific details on what we can expect from the combat side of Fable 2. And in the perfect Molyneux style, he convinces us that it will be the BEST VIDEO GAME EVAR!!
Keiji Inafune E3 2007 Interview -- The Milkman sits down with the Megaman. This video interview from E3 features nearly 10 minutes of these two hashing out everything from Resident Evil to Onimusha to the likelihood of a new Megaman Legends game.
