The Darkness 2 Launch Trailer

Posted on 26 January 2012 by TH3 No08

From K Games comes the trailer for The Darkness II, coming to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on February 7 in North America and February 10 internationally. I didn’t play the first Darkness and probably wont play this one either but it does look interesting. A word of warning though, the trailer is all cgi cinematics so we don’t really know what the game play will look like. We’ll have to wait and see actual game play when we get a real trailer closer to release date.

Based on the supernatural horror comic book series created by Top Cow Productions, Inc., The Darkness II delivers a brutal and personal narrative as gamers take control of Jackie Estacado, head of a New York crime family and wielder of an ancient and ruthless force of chaos and destruction known as the Darkness.

The Darkness II is the sequel to the million unit-selling 2007 title, The Darkness, and brings a unique new combat mechanic through Quad-Wielding, which will allow players to slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies with two Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons. The game is layered with thematic elements of dark versus light, steeped in deep and twisted storytelling, and maintains the stylistic violence visualized through a hand-painted graphic noir technique, true to its comic book origins.

Grand Theft Auto V official launch trailer is here…

Posted on 02 November 2011 by TH3 No08

Not sure how I feel about this just yet. The graphics look kind of weak compared to a lot of recently released games but these games are all about the story so I’ll give I’ll play it before I pass full judgement based on just a trailer. That being said this is certainly going to be one of the most anticipated games of the coming year. Let the full on hype train begin.

RIP Gamestation 226

Posted on 25 October 2011 by TH3 No08

 

It seems like only yesterday that i brought you home, all shiny with that new console smell. I had waited a long time to pick you up in the hopes that the price on you would come down but I had a pocket full of money and you looked like a orphaned puppy in need of a new home. I remember the first game we played like it was yesterday. we popped in a fresh copy of GTA IV and set out on a great adventure that I still think about to this day. It was a great first couple of months that turned into a great couple of years. What a ride huh?
Truth be told the real reason I bought you wasn’t the great games you promised but the opportunity to watch movies in HD for the first time. We picked up RAMBO and when we popped it in for the first time we were stunned. The picture was amazing. No more silly compression artifacts or low quality AC3 audio for me! We jumped straight into 720p video and uncompressed audio that damn near blew the windows out with that high bit rate and thunderous low end. (I know, I know, 720p was all my tv could handle at the time but that has since been remedied as I know rock the full 1080p plasma. Trust me the wait was worth it.)
You weren’t just a great console/entertainment center you were also a great friend to my kids who have both grown up playing your awesome games. I still remember the first time my 3 year old son and 6 year old daughter went multi-player on Lego Star Wars. I watched in amazement as they got along and played cooperatively on a video game that was graphically light years ahead of anything I could have imagined just a few years ago. In my children’s short time as video gamers they have experienced gaming opportunities that I never dreamed was possible as a child who grew up playing Super Mario Bros and Zelda on a little 12 inch black and white television.
It seems a bit ironic that you died just a few hours into what was one of the most promising new games I’ve played in a long while. Batman Arkham City was just too much for your little processor/Blu-Ray drive to take. So while I will soon replace you I will not be getting rid of you anytime soon. You have now become a 400+ dollar Netflix player who I hope my children will appreciate and take care of when you move off the big tv and up stairs to one of the kids rooms. In closing I’d like to thank you for the hundreds of hours of entertainment you’ve provided my kids and I over the last few years and I look forward to your shiny new replacement who may take your place on my entertainment console, but will never take your place in my heart.

RIP Gamestation 226, The best console a boy could have ever hoped for.

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.

LA Noire box art relased…

Posted on 24 February 2011 by TH3 No08

Rockstar released box art for one of it’s most anticipated games of 2010 and now 2011 today and I’m not super impressed with it.??? It’s pretty basic fare with nothing special going on. Certainly wouldn’t grab my eye if I was perusing the game stores and came across it. Then again it’s whats under the hood that counts and this one looks pretty good. check out the trailer below.

Set amid the violence and corruption of post-World War II Los Angeles, L.A. Noire is a crime thriller that seamlessly blends crime-solving, clue-finding, car chases and shoot-outs with revolutionary new interrogation-based gameplay that will allow players to read characters’ emotions in order to reveal the truth. Players will take on the role of Cole Phelps, a decorated war veteran, who rises through the ranks of the LAPD by solving a series of gruesome murders and other crimes that bring him face-to-face with the dark heart of Los Angeles during Hollywood’s Golden Age.

First look at the cast of X-Men: First Class

Posted on 18 January 2011 by TH3 No08

Here’s the first official image from X-Men: First Class. It’s pretty cool i guess. I expected them to be younger, like a middle school version of X-Men. I guess I should have read the synopsis…

Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-MEN.

Red State trailer hits the interwebz…

Posted on 23 December 2010 by TH3 No08

Kevin Smith hates the press but apparently loves the interwebz cause that’s where he dropped an early teaser for his latest flick “RED STATE”. We’ve discussed on the podcast over the last few months our general feelings regarding this film and his approach to distribution and marketing of it and this trailer doesn’t really change any feelings I have for what he’s trying to do. Smith lists the Weinsteins in the credits (Harvey Boys) so I’m assuming he’s got distribution so we may not be treated to the public spectacle of a post screening auction like he promised but as long as it gets out there I guess that’s really all that matters. The trailer looks interesting, lots of action, creepy looking small town folk, and lots of random gun fire.
