February 9th: Nascar 2011 and The Next Big Thing

If you like PC gaming then boy oh boy do we have a gaming update for you today. Today's daily gaming update features new trailers from some smaller titles that are slated for release including The Next Big Thing and Mytheon. Of course, we also have a couple of things for the console lovers, namely new videos from both Torchlight and Activision's first Nascar game.


Following a delay right after CES, it looks like the wheels are back in motion for Eutechnyx and Activision's first crack at the Nascar license.  Today the team released a trailer that shows a full season from the upcoming release NASCAR 2011: The Game.  Surprisingly they were able to condense an entire season down into just under two minutes, hats off!

You'll be burning rubber on March 22nd on Xbox 360, Wii and PS3.

Up until yesterday, scarcely any information was known about Runic Games' port of Torchlight to the Xbox 360.  Sure, we'd gotten a look at it back when we were at CES, but now that we officially know when Torchlight will be attending this party, Runic has been more forthcoming, releasing this lovely trailer to the public.

Torchlight will launch on March 9th on the Xbox LIVE Arcade.

If there's one thing the God of War series has showed us, it's that there are very few things more awesome than Greek Gods getting angry.  That's what makes this trailer for Mytheon so cool. It's Zeus doing what Zeus does best: getting mad at humans and being incredibly imposing in the process.  Have a look below.

You and the rest of the humans will be able to take on some fiesty gods sometime in 2011.  Or, if you can't wait, there's the option of hopping into the closed beta right now and seeing what's up.



In a market packed to the brim, you have to do a little bit extra in order to stand out.  E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy is trying to do that by combining RPG elements with FPS aspects and mixing in a healthy dose of single player, co-op, and adversarial play.  Today the guys at Streum On Studio released a new trailer for their upcoming release, showing off some of the cybernetic skills that they'll be using later this year.

E.Y.E. Divine Cybermancy will be released in 2011.

After doing away with the Runaway trilogy, many gamers were left scratching their heads as to what Pendulo studios would be working on next.  Turns out it is literally The Next BIG Thing, a new adventure game from the same studio.  Today Pendulo released a trailer giving adventurers a look at Liz Allare, one of the two protagonists that will be featured in their next title.

The Next BIG Thing will be released in April of this year.
