Wet, the new shooter from Bethesda of all developers looks and sounds like an old Grindhouse film. The visual style is as much over the top 70's B movie as it is Frank Miller graphic novel. Some parts of the game turn into a stark red-black-white tri-tonal grain, while most of the game maintains the same gritty, smokey look of Kill Bill.

Even more along those same lines, the game has acquired the same dark humor as the best of Tarantino's work. This little trailer is the best example of that humor so far. It's not a gameplay trailer so much as an ad for the game. Those of you hungry for the gameplay footage can find it on the same site under the media section.

I encourage you to check it out if for nothing else than the visual aesthetic.
