The Banner Saga Announcement Trailer

I will probably never play this game, in all honesty it looks boring. But! the animation is gorgeous, very clean. And there's Vikings!

Be sure to watch this in 1080p


Tree Lobster

If you get scared by insects, then don't watch this, you'll have a bad dream. This is a video of a Tree Lobster hatching from an egg and the below article is about the Tree Lobster.

Achetype by Aaron Sims

This is a short made to get a movie made, which has already been picked up having been online for a little over a month. It's very pretty.


Sputnik Computer Case Mod

Besides the awesome name this case mod is tits. I really hope someday to have both a gaming PC and a regular work PC, something like this that sits there unassuming until it pops open would be great.  Check out the creators site here,


New Avengers Trailer.

Wow they spent some money on this movie. You get a better look at the hulk in this
trailer, you can see that they've changed the face a bit to be more like Mark Ruffalo.
Still haven't heard Hawkeye say a word which stinks seeing as I think he'll be the one to steal the show.


The Avengers VS The X-Men

Unless it's  a promotional piece for something a movie, show or video I'm really excited for, it's not going to get it's own post.  But Skottie Young has such an amazing style that his art does get it's own post.


Gorillaz: Do Ya Thing

I actually don't know what the song sounds like, I'm posting this after watching it somewhere without sound, but the animation is great so that's why it's here!


Mojang is Smarter than Most.

Bukkit is a Minecraft server mod that optimizes your Minecraft server, see the link here for more information.  Mojang saw what they were doing and scooped them up before their project was even done.  For the full story check it out on joystiq.  Have you ever seen a more awkward group of nerds?  I think Minecraft is in good hands ;)

Awkward is Beautiful.


When Voice Actors Get Awesome.

The only thing wrong with this video is that it isn't longer.


My Little Pony meets Legend of Zelda

Both frightening and annoying.


Gotham By Gaslight Gameplay

Sometime ago a Batman game got scraped called Gotham By Gaslight. This is a story done by Mike Mignola about a Batman in 18-19th Century times, with a steampunk flare. The book was great but the game never saw light.


Spock VS Sherlock

Some behind the scenes footage of the new Star Trek movie has Spock fighting BBC's Sherlock. I have no idea what a Vulcan Nerve pinch looks like but it better be in this fight scene.

Vaesan, an Animated Short.

Very strange but worth a watch.

Web Comics 02/28/12

I've just found these two webcomics, Friends with Boys and Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant.

The first is already done but definitely worth reading start with page 1.

The second which has a much higher production level is still on going but the current story has been wrapped up. Check it out here.

Dead Space Navigation System.


Comics 02/29/12

Here are the books I'll be picking up this week:

Justice League #6

Invincible 89

Walking Dead 94

FF 15

First 20 Minutes of The Last Story

I've had a another article here, on this new game coming to NA shores. Made by Final Fantasy's creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, it is said to be very much like the original Final Fantasy games but with the look for a current one.

Check out the video here at kotaku.

Quick News 02/28/12

Chris Rock apparently was approached to play Daxter in the original Jak and Daxter.

EA's Origin will auto add EA titles on your computer to the Origin gamelist, even if you bought them through Steam.

The Hulk's dialog in the Avengers movie? I think it will work out.

Interview with Tim Scahffer that is little more in depth than most that have popped up so far.

Limbo with a Flashlight


How To Train Your Dragon TV Show.


Ferrel and Galifianakis at the Oscars.

Last of Us Update.

GameInformer has two bits of Last of Us for us.  The first is a video is about the initial trailer, the making of the trailer, how they came up with the idea, other technical aspects.  You can check that out here

The second bit is an ask the creators anything in the comments and hopefully your question will be answered.  The draw back to this of course is 90% of the questions are when the game is coming out, or will there be multiplayer.  You'll have to make an account to ask a question.  Not only does GameInformer not allow you to embed their videos on their site but you can't sign in with google, facebook or twitter to make comments.  You can see that article here.

The Mirror

This is a trailer for a documentary about a town in the mountains of Italy that for 83 days of the year doesn't receive sunlight. The mayor the town had a mirror built to reflect sunlight onto the town.

It sorta works but the picture after the video gives a better idea of the result.


Movie: The Movie

Jimmy Kimmel made this up for his show, it's not a real movie but it is worth the watch.

Brave Oscars Commercial.

The video isn't available on youtube just yet but when it is I'll post it here.  For now check it out over at Io9 here.

Here's a fan made poster I hope it makes up for it.



March MODOK Madness

If you don't know who MODOK is, you're not alone. He's a giant head from Marvel Comics who is really smart (if he wasn't then what would be the point?) and of course evil. There's a website and every march they post any picture submitted that features MODOK. There are certainly less worth while sites so get some strange this March.


Artist Spotlight: Robert Ball

Check out the rest of his art here on his blog.

Darthmaul Returns Trailer.

Quite a bit has been going on this season of Clone Wars;a Rogue Jedi Commander who sacrifice Clones like mindless droids, A plot to capture Palpatine (which is just lazy writing in my opinion, it'd be one thing if we didn't know who he is) by every bounty hunter out there including Obi-Wan, Ventress betraying Doku but sending in a sleeper agent as a new apprentice, and now Darth Maul returns.

"Beware Jedi, as one Star Wars' greatest villains returns in The Clone Wars animated series. Better hone your skills, as the dual bladed lightsaber wielding Sith Lord Darth Maul is back and ready for vengeance in this trailer."

This is the tag that accompanies the trailer, is it fair to label someone with "one Star Wars' greatest villains" when he appeared briefly in one movie? Regardless here's the trailer.
