Entertainment9 (movie)GamingMoviesElectronic Entertainment ExpoGenresXbox

From the big guns to the little guys, E3 is THE PLACE for game companies to show off the newest upcoming releases while beating you over the head with a mallet of pure hype. in these Booth Spotlights, we take a quick look at the standouts we saw at this year's E3.

A small but dedicated studio, Hello Games is back with Joe Danger: The Movie, a sequel to the Evel Knievel-inspired motorcycle stunt game with a light, funky feel. This time around, Mr. Danger has been tapped to do extravagant stunts for a series of tongue-in-cheek genre films.

In the previous game, Joe Danger only drove his trademark motorcycle, but for these movie levels, he'll have a much wider garage of vehicles. Skis, jet packs, mine carts, snowmobiles and unicycles will each bring new challenges and gameplay to the game. The jet pack, for example, requires the player to balance thrust versus gravity, while the unicycle needs to be continually balanced to avoid an embarrassing crash.

Egged on by an eager movie director, Joe Danger is put to work escaping avalanches and chasing crooks, and at the end of the "shoot," the game compiles a montage of your best moments for a personalized mini-movie. Joe Danger: The Movie will appear this summer as a downloadable title on Xbox Live Arcade.A small but dedicated studio, Hello Games is back with Joe Danger: The Movie, a sequel to the Evel Knievel-inspired motorcycle stunt game with a light, funky feel.
