In today's daily gaming wrap up we've got news from everything from forest survival games to Xbox 360 owners finally being able to use their keyboard and mouse in order to dominate in FPS.  However, that's not all as the Test Drive Unlimited 2 trailers just keep on rolling, we get a look at another class from Dungeon Defenders, and much more.


Animals in a forest aren't exactly the usual cast of characters you'd expect in a video game, but they are exactly the ones that EA will be using in their upcoming game Wildlife: Forest Survival.  The game's publisher has released a new trailer showcasing both the gameplay and art style for those who are curious about just how it will be integrated into a full title.

Forest Survival will be available next year on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

TimeGate studios announced today that gamers will not be spending full price on Section 8: Prejudice, the follow-up to 2009's Section 8.  Instead, players will only be paying $14.99 for the sequel, which boasts a 5-hour campaign and 32-player multiplayer support.  Given that many critics praised the original as having potential, color us cautiously optimistic that this could be one of the biggest steal for gamers come early 2011.

Prejudice will be available in Q1 of next year for Xbox 360, PC, and PS3 via digital distribution.

Much has been shown of Test Drive Unlimited 2, but very little has been shown of the multiplayer up to this point.  Atari has changed that today, releasing a new trailer today giving fans a look at some player vs. player racing.  Although it's a little bit light on substance, it is quite reminiscent of the slick stylings we've come to expect of TDU2 trailers.

If you want a similarly cool trailer that shows off many of the Audi cars which will be making an appearence in the full version of the game.

The second game in the Test Drive Unlimited series will be released on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

EA  has released a new trailer for their upcoming action-RPG Darkspore with a focus on the PvP modes.  It showcases on specific mode, the arena, in which you and one partner team up to take down another team of two heros.  It looks like a pretty awesome, and surprisingly deep game mode.


Darkspore will release on March 29th for the PC.


Dungeon Defenders may have missed its Fall release date, but that hasn't stopped news and art from the game from coming out.  Today the Huntress class, the ranged warrior from Trendy Entertainment's upcoming tower defense/action-RPG, was revealed.

Additionally, if you want a free copy of Dungeon Defenders (and who doesn't like free video games?), click your way over to the title's Facebook page and 'Like' it.  The developers will be giving away at least 10 and possibly more copies of the full game when it releases in early 2011 on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
