So, David S. Goyer wrote the story and Trent Reznor did the music for Black Ops 2, huh? That’s pretty exciting news! Oh, there’s also some cinematic shots and explosions and future technology and whatnot.
So, Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) single handedly killed a whole bunch of very deserving men in a variety of very kick-ass ways all to save his daughter from a very horrible fate. Granted, they’re somewhat blinded by revenge, but what did the new villains honestly think was going to happen if they kidnapped both his ex-wife and daughter? Well, a lot of shooting, free running, and if we’re lucky, a Hell of a lot more throat punching!
I’m a big fan of 2000 A.D., and by extension Judge Dredd, so when I found out Hollywood is making a second attempt at a Dredd movie, I was quite a bit skeptical. After all, the last movie, staring Sylvester Stallone, isn’t exactly known as the greatest comic-book-to-big-screen conversion ever (Sly took the helmet off, dammit! Dredd never takes off the helmet!). While we can only wait until the movie is released in theaters, a bit of cheesy dialogue and a look that’s quite a bit different than the source material, although that’s not necessarily a bad thing, isn’t raising my hope that this movie will be anything but bad. On the plus side, there’s plenty of action and Dredd (Played by Karl Urban; YYMV on this choice) doesn’t take the helmet off!
Yet another video of an individual dressing like one of the undead and terrorizing random people. Although this one seems at least partially scripted, you have to wonder when one of these zombie pranks will end in tragedy.
First off, us here at TFB would like to say that our experience with the recently released ‘Ghost Recon: Future Soldier’ has been highly positive (the occasional laggy online experience including the “questionable tactics” of random players aside). However, it is lacking that certain… realism that older Red Storm Entertainment games like ‘Rainbow Six’ and the original ‘Ghost Recon’ had. John Sonedecker, former member of Red Storm Entertainment, and his game development studio BlackFoot Studios are hoping to let players relive the days without regenerating health bars and XP-based progression systems with their game ‘Ground Branch’.
You can see full details at their Kickstarter page, where you can also donate a bit of cash to help this game come to life. They’ve still got $390,000 with only 25 days left to go, so spreading the word is also highly appreciated.
This interview-style video features models Rosie Jones and India Reynolds and gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the Hot Shots Calendar girls. It’s not recommended for work so you should probably watch it from home.
As you all know, we here at Tactical Fanboy love, among other things, tactical gear. After all, it’s in the name. That’s why we want to highlight Maxpedition, an innovator in tactical gear design and production for military, law enforcement, and ourdoorsmen and women.
E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, starts today, and with that comes the obligatory rush of awesome video game trailers, including this one featuring multiplayer gameplay for Medal of Honor: Warfighter:
Linkin Park aside, the trailer is amazing and showcases multiplayer that’s leaps and bounds over that featured in 2010’s Medal of Honor. Plus, there’s plenty of Special Forces from every corner of the globe to play as, and if the trailer is any indication that also means faction-specific weaponry and equipment.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter drops October 23, 2012.
A while ago we posted an article on the book ‘Badass LEGO Guns: Building Instructions for Five Working Guns’, which was an instruction book on making five working fictional LEGO guns. This time, we’ll be focusing on the book ‘LEGO Heavy Weapons: Build Working Replicas of Four of the World’s Most Impressive Guns’ by Jack Street. Unlike the previous publication, ‘LEGO Heavy Weapons’ features plans for models based on actual firearms, specifically the Desert Eagle, AKS-74U, SPAS-12, and the Jungle Carbine, which is based on the Lee Enfield rifle. Like ‘Badass LEGO Guns’, however, the book features detailed parts lists and plans so you can quickly build the LEGO models found inside. Too bad this one doesn’t have a model that takes advantage of a motor for automatic fire. Maybe we’ll see something like that in the next book?
The American action movie is back in the form of ‘The Expendables 2’! At least, according to this fan made trailer it is. So do away with the tights and copious amounts of CGI, and instead watch ever major American action star of the past 40-odd years shoot and stab their way through a testosterone-packed orgy of violence and explosions that will satisfy even the most wanting action junkie!
The Expendables 2 drops in theaters August 17th, 2012.
Armourgeddon is a company based in based Leicestershire, England that deals in paintball matches using a fleet of British tanks, specifically the FV432 Armored Personnel Carrier. After an introductory training session, teams of three battle it out tank-to-tank on an old WWII bombing range. Now, this isn’t the only activity the company specializes in (they also have, among other things, air rifle shooting, archery, hovercraft, and standard woodland paintball games), it just happens to be the most unique.
What is Ghost Recon Network? Well, in layman’s terms, it could be called the Ghost Recon equivalent to Call of Duty ELITE, but that wouldn’t be doing the service justice. It boasts more than enough unique features to distance itself from its competitors.
Check out this video of Meg Turney cosplaying as Pricness Leia for a shoot at Gentle Giant Studios. FYI, there’s a bit of crass language and suggestive dialogue, so this one’s probably better off not seen while at work.
Check out this announcement trailer for the upcoming Medal of Honor Warfighter, the sequel to 2010’s Medal of Honor. If its anything like its predecessor, Warfighter will be the perfect blend of action and realism set in actual modern day conflicts. Its also worth mentioning that Danger Close, the developer, will be handling multiplayer duties along with the campaign this time around, and the game is running on the latest version of Frostbite 2 instead of a modified Unreal 3 engine.
