GameTrailers TV Debut Tonight: First Tiberium Gameplay

Just a reminder readers, the debut episode of GameTrailers TV will be showing tonight on Spike TV at 1:00 AM Eastern Standard Time.

The first episode will feature the first gameplay footage of EA's upcoming Command & Conquer title, Tiberium. It will feature other minor things such as a Patapon preview, reviews for Burnout Paradise on the PLAYSTATION 3 and Xbox 360 and a review of No More Heroes on the Nintendo Wii (excellent game by the way).

Remember, 1:00 AM.

Saints Row 2: Character Customization, Online Co-Op Details

A new Games Radar preview has revealed some new information about Volition's upcoming Saints Row 2.

The character customization has been expanded in the upcoming sequel. This time, you can customize your genre, age, crib, and voice. Voice meaning you can walk the streets as a street high pitch speaker or a Tony Soprano Italian boss type speaker.

Saints Row 2 will also feature an online co-op mode which allow players to team up and take on the full single-player campaign. This is a big improvement over the one mission co-op mode in the previous title.

Other minor new features mentioned are weather effects, more responsive citizens, and more vehicles including motorcycles, helicopters, and planes.

Will this title compete with Grand Theft Auto IV? As many would most likely say, it probably won't be as good, but it sure will be fun.
