Videogame Previews

Internet Archive

More than 2,200 custom-created previews, from two major sources, are featured here. This collection showcases footage of video game titles produced for a variety of platforms, from Game Boy Color to Xbox, between 1993 - 2004.

The previews are presented in the form of trailers - short videos that describe the games and include in-game and pre-rendered footage. There are also selected interviews with game creators.

A major part of this collection was originally part of the Video Pipeline website, which provided these previews to retailers and distributors to show in stores and for promotional purposes. They have never before been publicly available.

The other major content provider (of longer-form videos) for this collection is Kikizo.com, a UK-based games website which has been archiving video content, including interviews and in-game footage, for some time. Kikizo.com has generously agreed to have their videos archived for posterity as part of this collection.

Before the days when controlling solely female characters in a video game was the norm (thanks to Lara Croft), comes a pseudo-sequel to the popular X-Men and X-Men 2 for the Genesis, titled X-Women. The game follows the same formula established by its predecessors, except the player controls an all-female team from the pages of the comic series.

Besides being an amazingly faithful adaptation of the ground-breaking arcade game, the very first home version of Virtua Racing was the first, and only, Sega Genesis game to feature the SVP, or Sega Virtua Processor. Besides being the key element that allowed blazingly fast three dimensional polygons to be produced on a system that was clearly not originally designed to do so, the SVP chip was also Sega's answer to Nintendo's Super FX chip, which had been introduced on the Super NES to produce...
