Weekend Brings New Star Wars, Batman, Rock Band, True Crime Game Reveals

In case you were out this weekend doing something other than sitting at a computer pressing F5 every half an hour, know that you missed a ton of new game announcements.

Yes, the Spike Video Game Awards, held on Saturday night, brought the new shit like it was June and this was an E3 of old, with five games making their public debut at the show. For those who missed our at-the-moment weekend coverage, those five games are:

Batman: Arkham Asylum 2
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II
Green Day: Rock Band
Deadliest Warrior: The Game
True Crime

That wasn't all. We also got our first look at a number of 2010's biggest titles (albeit ones we already know about), namely:

Halo: Reach
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
Medal Of Honor
Spec Ops: The Line
Crackdown 2
UFC 2010 Undisputed
Tron: Evolution

Phew. While nothing above was truly surprising, it's still a lot more stuff coming out of a weekend in December than you'd otherwise have expected. Hence the recap.

You can catch the trailers and reveals here, here and here, while you'll find the full run-down of the night's winners (remember this was, before it became a pre-Christmas marketing event, an awards show) right here.
