Some films lend themselves to video games very well. Some do not. You won't see Piranha 3D: The Game anytime soon, where you dodged dismembered penises as they fly at your screen. (No matter how much Uncle Creepy would enjoy that.) Saw, however, was an obvious match. Puzzles, mysteries, gore, all the good things in gaming except rocket launchers.

Think Left 4 Dead meets Rock Band with a dash of Mars Attacks!
When it comes to fighting games, the Mortal Kombat franchise (sans the weak MK vs. DC entry) is as close as fighting games come to horror. Sure there's been Dark Stalkers and such, but nothing has ever been able to equal MK's sheer blood-soaked lunacy. Today Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios have unleashed an all-new trailer for the highly anticipated video game Mortal Kombat, releasing in 2011 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Today at GamesCon in Cologne, Germany, Microsoft unveiled the first wave of XBL titles that will appear on Windows Phone 7, and by "first wave" I mean a TSUNAMI. SOOOO many titles! This basically makes your Xbox pocket- and/or purse-friendly as you can manage your lists, play games, download demos or other DLC, even earn achievement points all while whatever idiot you're talking to (your agent, pr, boy/girlfriend, whatevs) puts you on hold.
When you ask anyone to name their favorite part of Call of Duty: World at War, nine times out of ten you'll hear "killing Nazi zombies".
