And we’re back! Apologies for our extended hiatus, but we had a bit of a dust up down here at the park, and we had to take things offline for a bit. Luckily, some neighborhood kids with their Blackberry camera-phones were on hand to capture footage of the goings-on:

Brad Pitt as an Irish Traveler is so odd that it actually makes sense — which brings us to the topic of today’s TP — a selection of games so downright bizarre that you shudder to think about the focus groups that…

We’d like to preface today’s edition of “as told by Steam reviews” by saying that we’re confident CD Projekt Red will eventually work through the myriad issues plaguing Cyberpunk 2077 and transform the game into something that will be remembered alongside the company’s other legendary game, The Witcher III (which, incidentally, was a buggy-as-hell mess when it first saw the light of day).

That being said… When will we ever learn?

From Daikatana to Watch Dogs, overhyped game releases have always been a little like the idea of UFOs coming to Earth…

2021 already have you waxing nostalgic for the joyous optimism of 2020? Fear not, because here at the Trailer Park we like to go back a little further in time for our nostalgia. The 1990’s to be specific. The very decade, in fact, that was responsible for the brief rise of a game genre known as Full Motion Video.

The butt of many a gamer joke, 90’s FMV games can be easily spotted by their grainy film quality, odd collection of era-specific B and C-list talent and of course absolutely terrible game…

Those of us who still believe in the potential of video game movies don’t have it easy. We have lived through tough times, seen things we can’t unsee, and gone to bed dreaming of a Peter Jackson-helmed Halo, only to wake up to the cold reality of a Paul W.S. Anderson “imagining” of the Monster Hunter universe. But we’re not immune to hope either. …

We used to wonder why our parents insisted on listening to those oldies stations on the radio whenever we went anywhere in the car. Now the reasons are abundantly clear, it was to avoid conversation with their family naturally, but also to wrap themselves in the comfy nostalgia of times past whenever life got too scary. After all…

So that we may keep rockin’ forever, and because 2020 seems scariest just as we reach its end, here’s a selection of gaming ads past, the ones you’ll treasure and others that in…

When high-minded enterprises like The Hugo Awards and the Tribeca Film Festival announce that they will be including video games in their awards selections, you know that the idea of video-games-as-a-celebrated-art-form has gone legit. But all this critical acclaim might not have been possible without THE Game Awards — the six year old showcase championed and hosted by game journalist Geoff Keighley. The Game Awards have become a very real part of awards season through sheer determination and the tireless work of Keighley himself. …

It’s November, which can only mean one thing: time once again for our annual pilgrimage to the Land of the Headshot, which coincidentally is also an ill-conceived tagline from the Hollywood Department of Tourism. But we’re talking Call of Duty here. The place where friends become enemies, and enemies become KDR fodder in digital jungles and unguarded nuclear silos strewn across far flung lands. …

Not sure why, but here at the Trailer Park, we’re suddenly feeling like anything is possible next year. A vaccine for all. Idris Elba cast as Bond. The release of Black Widow. Maybe even this:

But that’s just our wish list.

Here are all the tangible trailer-fied reasons we’ve decided we can’t wait two months to get 2021 rolling.

Because Maverick’s Going to Be There

Oh sure, Tom Cruise getting shot into space to film a $200 million movie gets all the hype, but we’re more excited about a project…

Did you know that the first known Among Us stream was actually found in 1986, archived on an abandoned Commodore 64 in a cave outside Phoenix? True story. Or is it? We can’t blame you for not trusting what anybody says anymore. Being a phony is so hot right now, in gaming and IRL. Whatever the game’s ancient 2017 origins may be, the darned thing caught fire in late summer 2020 and we haven’t looked back, or each other in the eye, since.

This week’s Trailer Park features clips from the Extended…

Another year is almost in the books, and as we look back at the best indie gaming has had to offer in 2020, we once again celebrate the storytelling, the exceptional game design, the genre-mashups and everything else great that indie devs continue to provide year after year. The biggest difference this year has been that several of the most important indie titles had their genesis in years prior, and only now have had their finest moment. Let’s take a look what we discovered, and rediscovered this year.

Among Us (Steam, iOS…
