Let's face it, the Robot Apocalypse is near. Just a few days ago, we met A.L.O Botlr, a robot from the high-tech Aloft Hotel in Cupertino, California that acts as a butler.

Tecmo has a pretty decent lineup of upcoming games for the DS, and Robocalypse is one on the list that's managed to catch our eye. We're even more intrigued after watching this interview with Ryan Gilbo (who also did a pretty good job of selling Tecmo Bowl Kickoff to us). If a robot-based RT...

Between this and the Xbox Live Arcade Poker Smash trailer, a vintage-B-movie-trailer fad seems to have taken off! We are more than okay with this development, as trailers like these, with sharp narration and goofy text, are infinitely more entertaining than, say, the "moving DS" trailers.This...
