In this cornucopia of game trailers you will find content from the aforementioned Borderlands 2, Dark Souls, Saints Row: The Third and Assassin’s Creed Revelations just to name a few.
You’ve died and gone to trailer heaven.

A description of Kyuiin in the most uncomplicated fashion would be to say that it is a basic side-scrolling shooter. The mid to late nineties were chock full of ‘em and chances are you’ve come across your fair share in the span of your gaming life. However Kyuiin is more than that. It’s an outlandish, at times psychedelic experience whose peculiar themes make the idea of a flying vacuum cleaner seem practically normal.
