    Split/Second takes on Blur 

    Crack open your piggy bank and count you cheddar. This May promises to be a big month for video game releases. Two big names taking the main stage are Lost planet 2 and Red Dead Revolver. But not to be out done, The racing genre has had some steroids and a dose of adrenaline pumped into it that re-invigorates racing games in a way we’ve never seen. Both games are done my different studios and involve demolishing your opponents in both single player and multi-player. It may seem that these games are similar but they are both VERY DIFFERENT.

    BLUR is a heavily combat oriented game that takes real cars and gives them kick-ass weapons that create sonic booms, plasma blasts and shields that send your opponents into racing heaven. I’ll be so bold as to describe it as Super Mario Cart on some kind of illegal substance. This game was created  by Bizarre and they really made the attacks look colorful and damaging in a way that can only be described as beautiful chaos. You can play the beta now on x-box 360. The game hits stores on 5/28

    Split/Second is a game that uses a very detailed physics engine that focuses on destroying your opponents by controlling the environment around you.  You can destroy plains, gas station, trains, and bridges. You do this by gaining “power plays” The detail in the destruction to both the environment and the car wrecks are beautiful. The camera angles and the in-game play is extremely detailed and gritty. The demo should be available very soon. The game hits stores on 5/18

    If you ask me, I’m looking forward to both games but If I had to buy one, it would be Split/Second. I haven’t played either so i’m just going on reviews and what I’ve seen so far.What can I say, I’m a sucker for beautiful graphics and destructible environments. The game play looks a bit better than Blur and the attacks seem more realistic. I hope everyone plays both of these games and forms their own opinions.

    RUN!! It’s Godzilla…again! 

    Back in 1998, Roland Emmerich was riding high on the wave of his ID4 movie success and was anticipating the release of his follow-up Americanized take on Godzilla. Despite the studio’s Cloverfield like marketing campagne, the movie wasn’t well received by critics or audiences. Now America is at it again. Back in March, Legendary Pictures made an announcement that they will be bringing a new Godzilla Film to America. (without Rolland Emmerich) Sucks, there goes that ID4 vs. Godzilla movie we’ve all been hoping for. Well all has been silent about the film but this week, twitchfilm.net has what looks to be an early concept design of what the green giant may look like. According to twitchfilm.net, the pics were originally posted on flikr by a user who had been told by a “friend in the movie biz” that this was a design they were looking at. Another recent update comes from, Blood Disgusting and they confirm that the design is NOT official. Could this just be an artist going, “OOOOH OOOOH LOOK WHAT I MADE!!” You can click this link to check out more on the article, http://twitchfilm.net/news/2010/05/is-this-how-godzilla-will-look-in-the-us-reboot.php

    Transformers: The Prequel….kinda 

    Before Michael Bay blew lots of sh*t up. There was a kick-ass 80’s cartoon based on the popular Transformers Franchise. I think its pretty safe to say that without that great 80’s cartoon, we would never see Megan Fox leaning over on a motorcycle in Transformer: Revenge of the Fallen. Now thanks to Activision, we’ll be going back even further than the old cartoon in the new video game, titled, Transformers: War for Cybertron. This game takes place on Cybertron and the story focuses on the end days of the war. Right before the Autobots call Earth their new home. Visually, this game has amazing graphics and the character designs for both, The AutoBots and The Decepticons are truly stunning. Don’t expect to see designs that are inspired by the Michael Bay films. The team at Activision were inspired by the old 80’s cartoon designs but with a more updated look. The look is being so well received by the Franchise owners, Hasbro, that they’ll be releasing a toy line based on the video game character designs. Even the world of Cybertron looks unreal. It looks just like a war devoured robot planet would look!  Activision wanted to make the game controls very seemless between playing as a robot and playing in it’s transformed state. With a click of a button, you change to transformed. I know what you’re thinking, “Oh no! now I have to learn a whole new set of controls because I transformed!” Wrong! Once you transform, the controls stay unchanged. Each button still controls the same action. Also be ready for your copy of Call of Duty to sit on the shelf and be berried in cobwebs. Transformers is getting in the MMO (massive multi-player) game. Transformers: War for Cybertron will feature a robust MMO gaming experience where the player can design their own Autobot or Decepticon. You can play as four different classes of Transformer and the game includes everyone’s favorite MMO game types. Such as Team Deathmatch, Conquest, and Count Down to Extinction which seems really cool! From the gist of the MMO trailer, I think that game mode you just have to blowup the other team with a bomb that’s being tossed around like a hot potato. Transformers: War for Cybertron, hits stores, June 22nd for all major game consuls and it promises to be a kick-ass ride. You can check out a trailer for the MMO part of the game at, http://www.superherohype.com/news/articles/100824-new-transformers-war-for-cybertron-multiplayer-trailer or you can go to the game’s cool website at, http://www.transformersgame.com

    J.J. Abrams Top Secret Trailer Included with Iron Man 2 

    Can’t wait to see Iron Man 2? Well make sure you get there early enough to see the trailers. J.J. Abrams is at it again. Remember when J.J. Abrams first top-secret project debuted with a cryptic trailer that was seen in front of Transformers? Well it seems that another secretive monster movie project is being delivered to theaters. Reportedly, this super 8 trailer is said to be so top-secret that not even the theater is allowed to open it until the midnight showing of Iron man 2. Details about the film canister it arrives in are said to be that the protectionist will have to use a combination to open the locked canister.  The rumor mill around the net is that this will be a sequel to Cloverfield. According to Latino Review’s insiders, The trailer depicts a bunch of kids shooting a movie with a super 8 camera in the 70’s / 80’s. After getting the film developed, they notice that there is an alien type creature in one of the frames. This speculation of an alien race is what’s making people jump up and scream CLOVERFIELD 2!!

    An update via Latino Review from Vulture, actually got a word with J.J. Abrams and you can check out that update here,  http://www.latinoreview.com/news/details-on-abram-s-super-duper-secret-trailer-showing-in-front-of-iron-man-2-9899

    According to J.J., This is NOT a sequel to Cloverfield but it definitely will be another monster movie. Let’s hope J.J. doesn’t go all cheesy 50’s monster movie in 3D on us. I personally thought that Cloverfield was a great movie. The marketing behind it was GENIUS. In an age where people get all of that insider film info off of the internet, people were actually surprised again. It was a fresh feeling. Hopefully, J.J. Abrams will pull another one off again. Stay Tuned!

    Jonah Hex Trailer! 

    One of DC Comics lesser known characters with a  really gross burnt face is hitting the big screen this summer and for a C-List comic book character, It has a pretty amazing cast. Jonah Hex is played by, Josh Brolin. The movie also stars the hottttttttttttttttttttttt Megan Fox, and the lead villain is played by the great and very spooky/creepy, John Malkovich. The effects seem pretty good. It should be a fun popcorn movies. It doesn’t seem like anything ground breaking but I’ll probably go see it. After all it has, guns, special effects, explosions, and Megan Fox. That’s pretty much everything you need in a summer movie.

    Kan Jam! The new Beer Pong? 

    Get ready for good weather and BBQ’s with your friends getting so drunk they wake up naked in your shed hugging your mom’s photo. So break-out the beer pong table and your favorite beer. OR…you can put it aside for just a little bit and try thins game that’s sweeping drunken campuses across the nation.

    It’s a game called Kan Jam. The best way to describe how to play this crazy game is for you to just go to this link http://www.kanjam.com/Game/HowToPlay.aspx Me and my friends play this whenever we’re all together drinking and having fun in someone’s backyard. Don’t get me wrong, THIS IS NOT A DRINKING GAME! It just gets more fun as you drink if you ask me. This game is really hard to find. When I was first told about this game, I was coming home from doing a comedy show and my friend spoke of an epic game that needed to be played. So I then went on my quest to find this Kan Jam. I went on a gurney so epic, I even came across a golem. Or I was already drunk before playing it. Either way, I checked all the sporting goods stores in my area and nobody had it or they were totally sold-out. I then went to the website ( http://www.kanjam.com/ ) and I had that beast delivered to my house. With in a couple of day, I was jamming my own kan.(that sounded so wrong) When you look around the website, you’ll find that the Kan Jam community is HUGE. They sell t-shirts, they have street teams, they have a national league, and they have a store where you can buy various colored Frisbee that fit your personality.  SO GO GET SOME!
