Preview ‘Turtleneck And Chain’: New Lonely Island Song Featuring Snoop Dogg

Posted on 03 May 2011 by TH3 No08

Yesterday we previewed the new album by the beastie boys and today we’ve got a new song from The Lonely Island featuring Snoop Dog called “Turtleneck and Chain”. It’s exactly what you’ve come to expect from the guys, silly raps about stuff that isn’t normally funny but when dropped like this it is.

The album officially drops May 10, but you can pre-order it here.

Dead Island logo to be censored for North American release

Posted on 22 March 2011 by TH3 No08

The internet when apeshit for the trailer for this game when it hit a few months back and the hype train went off the rails for this first person zombie shooter meets GTA. Now and interesting bit of news from IGN. It look like the box art for the North American release of the game will be censored. The Dead Island logo will be changed to remove a zombie hanging from a palm tree and replace him with a stumbling zombie who is not nearly as offensive (apparently). No real reason was given for the censorship other than this statement given by Deep Silver…

Deep Silver told IGN that the box art will be modified in North America, however it will go unchanged within the title screen of the game and on the boxes of the European copies of the game.

Have a look at the before and after versions of these two logos.
Before censorship…

After Censorship…

Dead Island wants to eat your children…

Posted on 17 February 2011 by TH3 No08

I was just discussing last week with fellow noob Kevin Minke how their weren’t any games on my radar that I was really looking forward to playing. It’s that slow time of year when all the good games dropped over the holiday and nothings really good is gonna come out for a while and it’s probably the worst time of year to be a video game geek. But that quickly changed today when this little beauty was dropped on me like a ton of bricks. I don’t want to speak in hyperbole but this thing looks pretty awesome. We’ve had a lot of games come out lately with zombies, some good, some bad, but none perfect. They all seem to lacking a bit of heart, a reason to want to survive and the trailer to this game really feels like it may have hit that nail on the head. Granted it is (i assume) cinematic game footage not actual game play but I really like the whole family vacation gone wrong feel. I look forward to playing this when it drops and letting you know how good it actually is…

This from Co-Optimus.com and Wikipedia

“Dead Island is an open world video game in development by Techland for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, scheduled for a 2011 release. It is centered on the challenge of survival on a zombie-infested island. Dead Island will focus primarily on melee combat, with firearms and ammo being extremely scarce.
