Far Cry 5 – Teaser Trailer

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

The Far Cry series is known for allowing players to take the role of a lone fighter, committing guerrilla-style attacks on a statically-superior force in an open-world sandbox. This time, Ubisoft teases the fictional Hope County, Montana as the latest setting, with few details other than the trailer showing that something is wrong in that area. May 26th, this Friday, will be the official reveal.

David totally bombed the Engineer homeworld with the Black Fluid, didn’t he?

Call Of Duty: WWII Reveal Trailer

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

Call of Duty: WWII’s reveal trailer dropped today, offering a blend of ‘Saving Private Ryan’ and ‘Band of Brothers’ mixed with shiny graphics. The reveal itself was pretty bare, as expected, giving virtually no details on the multiplayer, but Nazi Zombies was confirmed, which is great if you’re into that sort of thing. With E3 being as close as it is, they’ll be sure to reveal more WWII info at that show.

Supposedly, the campaign will be devoid of regenerating health, rather requiring players to seek out a squad medic for healing, and ammo has to be requested from squad mates. Classic WWII weapons such as the M1 Garand, M1903 Springfield, M3 Grease Gun, MG42, and StG 44 were all confirmed either by footage or developer mention, which is obvious, and more weapons are guaranteed to follow as info becomes more available.

Call of Duty: WWII released November 3rd, 2017.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Kingsman – members are named after knights in Authurian legend; makes sense.

Statesman – members are named after different brands/types of alcohol… ok.

Still, the first movie was pure gold, and if the sequel has the same level of polish, it’s sure to be a hit.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle releases September 22, 2017.

American Assassin Trailer

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

As long as the characters in the movie recognize that a rear sight doesn’t sit on the eyebrow, then it’ll be just fine.

PeterSripol Modifies A NERF Blaster

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

YouTube content creator Peter Sripol has recently released this video, where he modifies a pump-action NERF blaster into a pneumatic cannon of sorts. Due to its design, it can launch virtually any object that can fit down its barrel, which is shown to great effect during the footage.

Star Wars Battlefront II Reveal Trailer

Sunday, April 16th, 2017

Check out this reveal trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II, which premiered as part of this year’s Star Wars Celebration. DICE’s Battlefront, a reboot of the beloved Star Wars Battlefront series developed by Pandemic Studios in the mid 2000s, was a technically-impressive but somewhat lackluster game, featuring gorgeous graphics mixed with what ultimately felt more like Battlefield groundplay in a Star Wars skin, and vehicle combat which many gamers felt paled in comparison to its predecessor series. This sequel promises an actual story campaign, along with key battles from all three eras of the current Star Wars mainline canon, and the addition of space combat.

Hopefully, with this iteration of the Battlefront series, the game truly improves on its predecessor, and draws a bit more from Pandemic’s previous take on the franchise.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Teaser Trailer

Friday, April 14th, 2017

Star Wars for Christmas! Woo!

Thor: Ragnarok Teaser Trailer

Monday, April 10th, 2017

In the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe trailer, Hela destroys Moljnir, devastates Asgard, and displaces Thor to Sakaar, where he gets a haircut and has to battle Gladiator Hulk™ in a storyline that’s a bit more than loosely based on the Planet Hulk comic run.

Plus Led Zeppelin.

Thor: Ragnarok is slated to launch November 3rd, 2017.

The Force Awakens – A Bad Lip Reading

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

I just want to say that Mark Hamill does a really good Harrison Ford impression.

Coke Can Minigun

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

So the title is a bit misleading, because this isn’t really a minigun, so much as a multi-barrel ballistic launcher (I’m all about the semantics). Still, it’s cool, and who doesn’t appreciate taking common household items and making neat stuff like this?

War for the Planet of the Apes – Official Trailer

Friday, March 31st, 2017

I’m still a sucker for the original series; their pronounced campy-ness is part of their charm. Regardless, this new Planet of the Apes series has been pretty good so far.

Destiny 2 – Rally The Troops Reveal Trailer

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

So, it kinda feels like they’re changing the tone a bit with the sequel to Destiny. Sure, there was the occasional twinge of humor, and dancing emotes, but the Deadpool-wannabe seems like a new direction.

NERF Dart Breaking The Sound Barrier

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

YouTuber Giaco Whatever built a custom pneumatic cannon, and launched a NERF dart from it which achieved a speed of roughly MACH 2.3, or 2.3 times the speed of sound. While NERF darts are designed to, at best, sting a little, even a foam-body projectile will do quite a bit of damage going that speed.

Anyone want to try an guess the foot-poundage coming out of the muzzle on this one?

Justice League Trailer

Sunday, March 26th, 2017

DC’s shared film universe, known officially as the ‘DC Extended Universe’, has been, frankly, a poorly-managed hodgepodge hurriedly crafted together in a desperate response to Marvel’s expertly handled (by comparison) ‘Marvel Cinematic Universe’. As a result, what could/should have been good films were instead narratively unsound, critical disappointments, succeeding entirely on the properties they represent rather than than their own merits.

Ok, now that I have the pretentious critic angle covered, here’s my 2 cents on the newest ‘Justice League’ trailer.

Yeah, I’m pretty pumped to see a ‘Justice League’ movie is actually getting made. Yeah, it looks like they’re doing it right i.e. more ‘comic-booky’, even if it’s a bit jarring to go from BvS to this. However, trailers are meant to tantalize, and I’ve been burned before: pre-release material made BvS look really great, and even made Suicide Squad seem like it would be watchable. Then there’s Wonder Woman, which again, looks pretty neat, but it could always go south.

I’ll reserve further critique until ‘Justice League’ actually comes out in November, but, well, the track record of DC films speaks for itself. Enjoy the trailer, but be wary that’s this is a trailer, and all of the cool fight scenes and snappy dialogue compressed into a few minutes of footage are not representative of the final product.

NERF John Wick

Sunday, March 19th, 2017

Another video from the insanely-talented Corridor Digital, NERF John Wick combines the cinematography and combative styling of the John Wick films with more than a few NERF blasters.

It’s actually really entertaining, I swear.

Prey – The First 35 Minutes

Friday, March 17th, 2017

If you don’t mind spoilers, here’s the first 35 minutes of the upcoming reboot/rebranding/reimagining of Prey. It’s pretty much System Shock 3, which coincidentally is also going to be developed.

Atomic Blonde – Red Band Trailer – NSFW

Monday, March 13th, 2017

If you feel this trailer for Atomic Blonde has a bit of a John Wick feel, it’s not surprising: David Leitch, co-director of John Wick and director of the upcoming Deadpool 2, is also behind this flick, in which Charlize Theron plays an MI6 agent sent to Germany on a top secret mission.

Oh, and in case the title didn’t give it away, this is pretty NSFW; you have been warned.

RAID: World War II

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

A 4-player co-op game where you play as soldiers of various nationalities teamed up against the Nazi menace, and there’s Nazi gold to steal. Sounds like Payday crossed with a dash of Inglourious Basterds.
