A new trailer featuring apparent gameplay footage from Criterion’s upcoming Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit has surfaced from today’s Gamescom event.
The video predominately serves to highlight the benefits of the special edition version of the game, which will include an Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione and Ford Shelby GT500 as exclusive unlocks, as well as unlock the Chevrolet Camero SS, Porsche Cayman S, Audi TT RS and Ddoge Challenger SRT8 from the start.
Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit is currently slated for release on November 19th.
OnLive has been available to users for over a month now. During this time, I have tested out the service in many different scenarios: from a high-end PC, to a five year old laptop, to both desktop and laptop Macs. Put simply, the service works.
Oddly enough, it was the service working that many questioned prior to OnLive’s release. While the technology is held back by the poor infrastructure that is United States internet, it manages to utilize new compression technology to make up for it. But is the fact that it works enough? Join me as I provide both a written and video review of the OnLive service. Read more… »
After several hints throughout this week, Codemasters have unveiled their new reveal trailer for the forthcoming Colin: McRae: DiRT 3, courtesy of the ESPN X Games. DiRT 2 was one of my favourite racing games last year, so the announcement of a sequel already is exciting news indeed. I only hope this new instalment adopts a less Americanised approach than its predecessor, but fortunately Codemasters have hinted it will have British vibe this time round.
Racing driver Ken Block, who narrated DiRT 2 with no personality whatsoever, looks set to feature once again as the trailer depicts him putting a Ford Fiesta rally car through its paces across a South African dirt track before joining a Ford RS200 in a race on snowy terrain, a locale that was sorely missing in DiRT 2. The teasing trailer comes to a close by having the Fiesta drifting around an exploding truck, most likely hinting at a new race event for the final game.
As the trailer proclaims, DiRT 3 is set to be released next year.
Let’s face it, anything made of LEGOs is cool. But when you take one of the most popular RTS games and combine it with LEGOs, that is just plain epic. Even if you aren’t a fan of StarCraft, you will still appreciate the video.
The four and a half minute animation, created by Kooberz Studios, portrays all of the qualities we know and love from StarCraft. I don’t know about you, but watching SCV resource collection has never been more enjoyable. Anyhow, back to learning my way around StarCraft 2 (I r noob). Read more… »
Does Blizzard make movies or computer games? That’s a question I honestly can’t answer anymore after watching the new Starcraft 2 trailer that was released yesterday. If I didn’t know better I would think the company was about to launch one of the biggest blockbuster movies of the summer.
While some might scoff at this trailer and say it has nothing to do with the gameplay itself, I would argue they are completely wrong. Starcraft is just as much about the story as it is about the RTS gameplay, and if there is one thing Blizzard does extremely well, it’s integrating both elements together in perfect harmony.
As for the trailer, it has to be seen to be believed. There are simply no words to describe it, so hit the jump to watch it now. Read more… »
Following on from yesterday’s announcement of James Bond: Blood Stone, Activision has launched a debut trailer for the game offering a mixture of driving, shooting and combat elements, commencing with a high speed car chase featuring Bond’s trademark Aston Martin DBS and concluding with an explosive speedboat set-piece.
Blood Stone will feature an original storyline and will also revert back to the third-person perspective last seen in From Russia From Love. Judging from the trailer, the game will hopefully harken back to Everything or Nothing, what I consider to be the best Bond game since Goldeneye.
I don’t know much about history, and I don’t know much about biology. I don’t know much about science books, and I don’t know much about the French I took. What I do know is I love this new trailer for a make believe God of War Indie movie. If you would just watch this trailer, you might fall in love with the idea of this movie as well, and then what a wonderful world this would be.
Seriously though, this trailer is absolutely incredible. To see it now, hit the jump.
The Cataclysm event is here, and Deathwing kind of left a mess. While all of the changes haven’t rolled out yet on the beta servers, there are a heap of areas that have either been created, or drastically changed. One huge perk about the new Azeroth is the fact that you can fly anywhere – which is a pretty big convenience.
Hit the jump for a whole host of videos I’ve taken during my travels in Azeroth. Read more… »

Goblins have long been known in World of Warcraft as the “joke race”. With tons of hilarious characters like Shauly Pore, who constantly spouts the word “buuuuddy”, Dr. Boom, and even Podracers, Goblins are always good for a few laughs. However, in Cataclysm, Goblins are serious business: they’re a full selectable playable race, and a large proportion of them are abandoning their previous stance of neutrality, instead choosing to join the Horde.
Since the beta did not include a full introduction, I recorded my own, which takes place in the starting area, approximately a minute into starting a new character. Stay tuned for my full impressions on both the Worgen and Goblin races in an upcoming Scattershot piece. Spoiler: I like the Worgen a lot more than Goblins at this point. Read more… »
The time has come for World of Warcraft coverage: wives, run for cover! In this segment, we’ll take a look at one of the two new races set to debut in Cataclysm: the Worgen.
Worgens are best described as “humane werewolves”. They have the passive skills of Darkflight (70% increased movement speed for six seconds), Viciousness (1% damage increase), Aberration (Duration of Curses and Diseases reduced 15%), and Flayer (Skinning skill increased by 15, no knife needed), and are currently loyal to the Alliance.
Read on for more screenshots of the Worgen questline, and stay tuned for Goblin coverage, as well as Cataclysm dungeon coverage with my level 80 PTR copy – make sure you watch the video at the end!
Now I know we are supposed to write something fancy and formal here. I get the premise and I appreciate it but actions speak louder than words and by hell this Infamous 2 footage that GameTrailers just dropped screams in your face like a megaphone abusing Godzilla.
The footage, taken in-game from the recently announced Sucker Punch sequel, looks nothing less than phenomenal. Don’t take my word for it, start the thing running whilst reading this and I guarantee you won’t make it more than a few moments before my words melt away and your eyes melt with tears of joy.
