The first video shows gameplay from The Chicken Bandit, "a western side-scrolling action game" where you "Play as a lone cowboy accompanied only by his over-sized chicken sidekick as you travel from land to land robbing trains and lassoing up as much loot as possible."
The second video is the trailer for Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chickens for the Playstation Vita. It's also a side scroller, full of shoot em up action, atmospheric environments and a chicken revolution.
It seems like 2012 might be the year of the chicken after all, at least when it comes to video games.
