These two shirt designs have just launched for the new Black Powder Red Earth game.
The Triple R, or Rolston Reciprocating Repeater, is the submachine gun featured in the video game ‘BioShock Infinite’. Weaselhammer Props made a life-sized replica, and you can check out the process of the build at his page.
DoorKickers is a top-down real time tactics game where you control a SWAT team clearing buildings and rescuing hostages using realistic weaponry and equipment. Gameplay can be paused to help the player to plan a strategy, although the player is graded on a number of factors per scenario, time of completion being one of those factors. The devs at KillHouse Games sent me the open early alpha build, and so far it shows a lot of promise.
‘Nother year, ‘nother CoD.
Last Friday, sound designers and authenticity staff from Red Storm Entertainment, based in Cary, North Carolina, accompanied the aviators and ground crews of the 1-130th Attack Reconnaissance Battalion. Their purpose was to record audio of the AH-64D Longbow Apache Attack helicopter, including the start up and take-off procedure and cockpit chatter.
You can read the full story at the North Carolina National Guard site.
Nathan Longest of HVDprops made some highly detailed prop models of a few of the weapons featured in the game ‘Team Fortress 2′. The models include the Sniper Rifle, Ambassador (revolver), Scattergun, and Bonesaw.
He also has an etsy store.
For 160 Microsoft points, or 2 dollars, Activision is offering a line of in-game weaponry personalization packs for Black Ops II. These packs include a new weapon skin, three optics reticules for the ACOG, EOtech, and Reflex sights, and a themed ‘calling card’. Skins include Dia de los Muertos, Graffiti, Jungle Warfare, and Bacon (seen above); if you’re wondering, yes, there is a zombie skin.
A new trailer from the most impressive looking game featuring the ‘Aliens’ property since ‘Alien vs Predator’ on the Atari Jaguar. Gearbox Software looks to be doing the series proud, and if anything else it looks a lot better than ‘Alien 3′.
‘Aliens: Colonial Marines’ drops February 12th, 2012.
Digital Concealment Systems, creator of the A-TACS family of camouflage patterns have signed a deal with Activision that includes the use of said camo patterns, currently A-TACS AU and A-TACS FG, in the just-released-today Call of Duty: Black Ops II. A-TACS is present in Black Ops II in the form of “…a playable option and integrated throughout different levels of the epic game.” This is most apparent in its use as an in-game gun camouflage.
Spartan Ops is essentially a second campaign for ‘Halo 4′ that delivers new missions and cinematic episodes on a weekly basis.
Halo 4 drops November 6th.

The DELTA SiX is an attempt to make the perfect FPS game controller. Designed to closely mimic an actual firearm, it features an accelerometer and kickback to simulate aiming movement and firing while a removable magazine simulates actual reloading. An ergonomic design places the face buttons along the grip for easy access, and a chin activation placed on top of the controller, behind the optional scope attachment, activates the in-game ADS (aim down sight). Other optional attachments include a grenade launcher and suppressor. The controller will be compatible with Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Wii U, with plans to produce models for any next gen game consoles.
This officially licensed miniature Portal gun replica is for everybody who didn’t get a chance at the full-sized (and expensive) version. It features orange and blue LEDs with corresponding sound effects, a functioning trigger, extendable and posable claws, and a display stand. The whole package come in a Portal-themed, full color gift box. Powered by 3 AAA batteries.
In the year 2025, there’s huge assault walker drones, wrist-mounted grappling hooks, flight packs with wings take the place of parachutes, and special forces still use MultiCam.
Black Ops 2 drops November 13th.
Check out this in-depth video on the upcoming ‘Medal of Honor: Warfighter’, which includes information on both multiplayer and single player.
‘Medal of Honor: Warfighter’ drops October 23rd.
1) This is an amazing fan film based on an amazing property!
2) Why is Gordon Freeman talking?
Anyway, it’s no ‘Half-Life 2: Episode 3′, but it’s definitely worth watching.
Just a quick announcement that the Project Honor Camo Spray Kit is now available at Tacticaldistributors.com. Please note that this item only ships via ground.
The reveal trailer for zombies mode in the upcoming CoD: Black Ops 2 just came out today. Personally, I would have waited to release this until Halloween rolled around, but then again I’m also not a member of the marketing team for a billion dollar game franchise.
I didn’t think WETA could top their previous gift to the fine folks at Valve, a replica of the engineer’s turret from Team Fortress 2. Then, they sent a replica of the turret from Portal, and I was proven wrong. Features motion tracking, deployable guns, and in-game sound effects and voice clips.

Master leathersmith David Vigil has crafted this impressive gun holster for Vigilante Leather, inspired by the one used by Nathan Drake in the PS3-exclusive ‘Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception’. The design closely matches the in-game model in both metalwork and the dye job used to treat the leather; a model dyed in black with gunmetal-colored metalwork is also available upon request. 8 buckles, 2 to each strap, allow for easy fitting, with an option for custom fitting if required. Additionally, every holster is waterproofed and stress tested, insuring full functionality in any situation. Simply put, it’s a piece that’s usable for way more than just cosplay.
Available in limited quantities from David Vigil on Etsy.
I’m sure you know about the Internet Movie Database, or imdb.com, another one of those internet time sinks that has information on almost every movie ever along with almost every actor ever, the parts they’ve played, etc. Since this is the internet, where just about any damn thing can be found, and copycats are common, somebody made a similar site in the form of a Wiki, but with firearms as the primary focus instead of movies and actors, even calling it the internet movie firearm database. On the site, you can look up what movies, television shows, and video games a firearm has been in, what firearms a movie, television show, or video game has featured, and even what firearms and in what show/movie/video game an actor has used.
It’s pretty exhaustive, which makes games of 6-degrees-of-a-Beretta-92F all the easier to play.
The Voodoo Hawk from SOG Specialty Knives & Tools is a combination of their tactical Tomahawk and FastHawk, featuring an extended cutting head, smaller compact glass-reinforced nylon handle, and metal butt cap. The new design also features a special edition London Bridge Trading Company sheath in Honor Camo.
In October, SOG Specialty Knives & Tools will be releasing a limited edition 500 piece run of the Voodoo Hawk. They will be numbered and engraved with the Mako unit crest and include a SOG patch.
GET THIS – 100% of the proceeds from all 500 pieces will be donated to Project Honor!

Man, this trailer is showing the best multiplayer for CoD yet!
That’s also the same thing I said when I saw the previous multiplayer trailers for every Call of Duty since Modern Warfare 2. Granted, it does look amazing (that’s what trailers are for, after all), and the graphics are looking pretty spiffy, but I already know I’ll like the game for roughly a month, then only jump on it occasionally until the next CoD is announced and released. It’s a vicious cycle, I know. Then again, future weapons and killstreaks and a reworked create-a-class system could prove me wrong.
Black Ops II drops November 13, 2012.
This project by ‘A.F. 275 – Gun & Gear Blog’ is clearly the coolest non-licensed Nintendo accessory ever, a Kydex holster for the old-school Nintendo Zapper accessory. Stylish and quick on the draw to boot! Too bad it doesn’t give you the ability to shoot that damn taunting dog (in the Nintendo version, at least; at the arcade, however…).
Check ‘em out on Facebook.
Thanks to Dnine for the tip.
