Looking back, House of the Dead 2 was probably one of my first encounters with campy, so-bad-it's-good video-game production values. Between that infinitely quotable game and its QWERTY-based spin-off, Sega has managed to build up a substantial amount of goodwill for the series with me--probably more than an aging on-rail shooter franchise deserves. All that aside, you've gotta give it up for Sega for this new trailer for House of the Dead: Overkill for the Wii. It's like my favorite parts of Grindhouse, but in video-game form! I just hope that the game itself has nearly as much style as this trailer.
So which of the upcoming House of the Dead games looks more promising to you, Overkill or EX?
