Warner Bros. Interactive and Monolith have announced a new "MOBA Mastery" video tutorial series which will help gamers become more familiar the genre and the upcoming MOBA Guardians of Middle-earth. In the first video from the series, "Basics," you'll get an idea of how the map is laid out in Guardians of Middle-earth, learn about towers, creeps/soldiers, and about attacking the other team's base.

We're a little bit more than one week from the release of Rovio's most high-profile cross-franchise effort to date, Angry Birds Star Wars. There's been some worry that the new game will simply amount to an Angry Birds Space knockoff with Star Wars skins, but a newly released gameplay trailer is here to set you straight on that count.

The Luke Skywalker bird (a fitting surname for a Force-sensitive avian) can swing his lightsaber around in flight, taking out whatever's in its path. Then there's the Leia-bird, which can... shoot pink eyebeams? I don't remember that from any of the Original Trilogy movies. Maybe it was a feature of the Special Edition?

Microsoft previously revealed that the story in Spartan Ops picks up after the events of Halo 4, with the forces aboard the UNSC Infinity taking on a mix of Covenant and Promethean forces. This new trailer, posted at Halo Waypoint and shared by All Games Beta, gives you a peek at what to expect from the expansion story. Stay tuned for our review of the full game later this week.

Activision saw many nods of approval with its live-action Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 trailer starring Sam Worthington and Jonah Hill, so is it really any surprise that we've now got Robert Downey Jr. popping up in a live-action Black Ops 2 trailer directed by Guy Ritchie? Downey leaves behind his Iron Man armor, but he was at least smart enough to bring a jet to a gunfight.
Only one thing about this trailer confuses me. Horses? Are there horses in Black Ops 2? Or is that part of the trailer just meant to appeal to those who are attracted to blonde women riding horses? If anyone can explain, please do. Otherwise, the wait won't be much longer. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 hits stores on November 13, 2012 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC (and Wii U on November 18!).
