Literally ANY Song Fits The Black Ops Launch Trailer

Posted in Miscellaneous with tags , , , , , , , on November 8, 2010 by Connor

The above trailer, for Black Ops, is no ordinary trailer, because literally any song will fit to the trailer if played over it. Think of it as like Guile’s Theme, but reversed; rather than it fitting for everything, everything fits to it. Examples of this phenomena, including Zelda, Mario, and many many more can be found after the jump.

An Uncharted Movie?!

Posted in News with tags , on October 15, 2010 by Connor

Uh, well okay then. The Hollywood Reporter are reporting (big surprise there!) that Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune is going to get a film adaptation. David O. Russell closed the deal and will be writing and directing the film, who has given this priority over his big screen adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

It’s currently unknown who will play the dashingly handsome Nathan Drake, but Yahoo are betting on Nathan Fillion, or maybe even Nolan North, the voice of Drake himself. Chances are the film will be at least lightly entertaining, as all video game adaptations seem to be, but whether it lives up to the game and get’s 9/10 scores is up to fate.

Sequels! Dissidia 2 and Miles Edgeworth: Ace Attorney Investigations 2 Announced!

Posted in News with tags , , on September 8, 2010 by Connor

Now this was a nice surprise to wake up to! Some new scans from Famitsu are showing off Dissidia 2 and Ace Attorney Investigations 2 reveals! New to Dissidia’s roster, FFXIII’s Lightning has been announced as playable, which would be cool if Lightning was Sazh, but she’s not, so Dissidia may be Sazhless. (Insert sadface here).

Also announced was ACe Attorney Investigations 2. I don’t know much about that except that it’s still about FABULOUS Edgeworth. Hit the jump for that scan. Continue reading

Trading Coming To TF2!

Posted in News with tags on August 12, 2010 by Connor

Since the random hat/weapon drops, and the crafting option in Team Fortress 2, one of the most requested features has been the ability to swap finds and creations with friend, and with the new update, this is going to be possible!  The new update which is due out next month (well it’s Valve so maybe in thext two months…)  won’t just add trading though. Also included are the new hats and weapons from the Polycount contest and a brand new game mode yet to be revealed. Exciting! And something all PC gamers will look forward to!

Machinarium Offers Redemption For Pirates

Posted in News with tags on August 6, 2010 by Connor

This is actually kind of sad…Machinarium, an excellent little point and click game with a great atmosphere and it’s own unique charm, was released with no DRM. Which is fine, alot of people hate DRM, except the problem is it becomes easily copyable, and so pirates can play a copied version with no trouble from serial codes or the like. They’re reporting that, from the feedback, only 5-15% of Machinarium players actually paid for the game, which is shocking considering it doesn’t even cost that much.

But here’s where the “Pirate Amnesty” comes in. From now until August 12th, Machinarium is 75% off, so it only costs $5 (£3.26), and it comes with a free soundtrack. The idea here is that they are giving pirates the chance to redeem themselves, and buy it while it’s cheap. For small time devs like these, every sale goes directly to them, and every last penny counts, so please show your support. And even if you didn’t pirate the game, this is an AMAZING offer, so buy it!
