Amazing Short for Phillips 21:9 TV

Years ago, widescreen TV's introduced the public to the bits they had previously been missing on the right and left sides of their TV screens. With HDTV's well into the mainstream, the public has finally gotten used to a more cinematic viewing experience, but Phillips is still not satisfied, as evident by their recent unveiling of the "Cinema 21:9," a wide (wide, wide) screen television more condusive to the film-viewing experience.

"Bioshock 2" First Look is Long, Spoilery

Just over a week ago I posted the first "Bioshock 2" game footage, and wondered aloud what sort of teases would come next. As it turns out, "tease" is not in Gamespot's vocabulary, as they've posted a video which at first look answers nearly every basic question that fans of the franchise have so far. Be warned, this video is slightly spoilery in terms of general story and gameplay, but definitely worth a look:

More L4D Survival Mode Info (w/ Graph!)

I'm hugely disappointed in the amount of "Left 4 Dead" I've been playing lately. I blame it in part on "Peggle," but more on the fact that I've been busy with site and general life stuff and haven't had a decent chunk of time to dedicate to a nice Versus game with some good friends. Unfortunately, the incoming "good weather" might also impede my gaming a bit, but not before I have some time to get my hands dirty with the L4D DLC coming out next week.

Friday Fun: My Brute

Let's face it, Friday is the longest day of the week. Whether you work, go to school, or leave an ass print on the couch all day, the last day before the weekend can feel twice is long. That is why, starting last week, I've decided to make every Friday the day of fun, by giving you an online plaything to occupy (read: waste away) your day! If this sounds like something you want me to keep up, give me a nod in the comments.

Ju-On Game Headed to Japan (Wii)

A few days ago, a teaser site for the upcoming "Ju-On (The Grudge)" game for the Wii showed up with little fanfare. Today, Dread Central caught wind of the details c/o a Japanese speaking friend, who reported some intriguing findings:

According to the story, the name of the game is Kyôfu Taikan: Ju-on. Based on the translation, that would come out as something like Experience Fear: The Grudge in English.

Ghostbusters "Slimer Edition" is Gonna Cost Ya

Recent trailers for the upcoming "Ghostbusters" game have definitely planted the seeds of curiosity if not full-on fanboy excitement. As someone who (naively) paid $80 for the Spore "Galactic Edition," I wouldn't be averse to shelling out some extra dough for the special "Slimer Edition" package of the game if it looks promising enough. Unfortunately, I'm not sure that anything short of the second coming of "WWF No Mercy" for N64 would prompt me to drop $129.99 on anything game related that isn't another console entirely. The package itself sounds pretty cool, but the price, not so much.

Nerd Fight! GOW2 vs RE5

The rise of podcasting has proven that nothing quite holds people's attention like two (or more) nerds butting heads about contentious topics. IGN has tapped into this energy a bit with their "Video Grudge Match," which pits two games against one another, with one staffer assigned to each game. The latest grudge match pits recent blockbusters against one another as "Gears of War 2" tangles with "Resident Evil 5." The diplomat in me says "why not both?", but we all know that diplomats are unamerican and are better served sipping tea and playing soccer.

First "Saw" Video Game Details

Last week, we were "treated" to a very short, vague teaser for the upcoming "Saw" video game from Konami. When I first heard about the game, I was curious as to whether or not it would be puzzle based or action based, and as it turns out, it's a bit of both:

"Bioshock 2" Gameplay Footage, Finally!

The "Bioshock 2" news just keeps pouring in! After months of speculation as to what the game would look/play like, GameTrailers has posted the first gameplay footage, and needless to say, the mouth-foaming has begun:

Friday Fun: Terminate Yourself

It seems like every film or game that comes out these days is packaged with some sort of viral component. As it turns out, allowing people to put their face on things or put things on their face is a formula for instant success. JibJab built their entire business on it, and the concept has been used to promote everything from Absolut vodka to Street Fighter IV.
