Daily Gaming Update: December 22nd

Perhaps we'll just call today trailer Tuesday, as that certainly seems to be what the predominate theme is for today. On top of a video for the latest character skins in Guardian of Light there's also trailers for a brand spankin' new D&D game, a video to catch you up on the story of Dead Space 2 and oh so much more.

Now that Kain and Raziel, of Legacy of Kain fame, have been revealed as the next downloadable characters for Lara Croft and The Guardian Of Light, some of you may be wondering how they change the gameplay.  If this gameplay trailer is any indication, the answer is: not by a whole lot. 


If you're in the mood to get these new character skins, they will run you 400 MSP.

In light of the recent announcement of a new set of Dance Central DLC, Harmonix has released a new trailer that details some of the new moves you can practice in front of your Kinect and then impress your friends with.


The third track pack is available now, with each song costing 240 MSP.

If you feel like your life is a little bit lacking in the vampiric butt kicking department, prepare to have that void filled.  Konami has announced that they will be releasing two DLC packs for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.  The first adventure will be titled "reverie" and will send Gabriel back to The Castle in order to destroy the evil that The Queen had previously checked.

Following 'Reverie', a second, more expansive adventure titled 'Resurrection' will pikc up right where the full game left off.  In addition to explaining some of the epilogue, Resurrection will also feature a showdown with a "very notorious enemy" (Dracula perhaps).

There was no word on a release date or a price.

If you're like us and the northern winter has got you down, Atari has something to cheer you up: a video of sunny Ibiza rom Test Drive Unlimited 2.  Along with keeping your mind warm with thoughts of beaches and clubbing, they have also dropped some knowledge about what makes the second game different from the first.

You'll be speeding through Ibiza on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on February 8th.

The granddaddy of all fantasy games: Dungeons and Dragons will be making another trip to consoles this Spring.  Atari announced today that mages and warriors alike will be returning to The Forgotten Realms to partake in "the desperate struggle to defeat the evil Rezlus and his Zhentarim in their attempt to invade and conquer the Dalelands". 



The final product will be titled Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale and will be coming to PS3, Xbox 360, and PC in Spring 2011.

It's curl up with your favorite teddy bear time, because Visceral games has released a new trailer for Dead Space 2.  Titled "Excavation", it'll catch up newbies to the history of Isaac Clarke's trials while giving grizzled veterans a quick refresher.  Either way, the trailer will scare your pants off, you've been warned.


Dead Space 2 will launch on January 25th on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC

[Dead Space 2]-$56.99(PC), $79.95(PC Collector's Edition), $57.99 (Xbox 360), $79.95(Xbox 360 Collector's Edition), $57.99(PS3), $79.95(PS3 Collector's Edition)
