The New Spiderman is… Peter Patterson?


Fans were recently treated to an amazing launch trailer for Marvel and Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man PS4, and now they have an exciting open-world trailer to enjoy.  The latest trailer doesn’t really reveal anything new about the highly anticipated game, but it does live up to its namesake and provides us with an excellent look at the open-world environment, highlighting some of the tasks players can do.  However, even though it doesn’t feature a lot of new gameplay footage, you can hear a fun debate between J. Jonah Jameson and Peter Parker (Peter Patterson) as they discuss the web-slinger’s impact on the city.  And to top it all off, the spectacular new footage reveals a better look at a few of the iconic Marvel landmarks that will appear in the game, including Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum and Avengers Tower.

Rampage: World Tour: The Video Game: The Movie, With The Rock? What?


Dwayne Johnson announced that the teaser trailer for Rampage would be with us today, and as promised, you can get your first look at some footage from the upcoming video game adaptation below.  The movie will be an adaptation of the classic arcade game, which focuses on three animals (a wolf, a crocodile and a gorilla) who fall victim to evil genetic editing, rapidly changing every strand of their DNA so they grow, evolve and mutate.  Johnson’s character is charged with tracking them down, but the gorilla just so happens to be a friend of his named George.  I really want to be excited about this movie, but it just look like San Andreas mixed with the new Jumanji and a splish-splash of Negan.  But let us know what you think by leaving a comment.

French illustrator Chris Panda has gone deeper than skin to create an awesome array of X-ray illustrations showing the bones of some classic characters. Various skeletons of cartoon, comic, and video game characters are portrayed, but without a doubt the most disturbing image is Miley Cyrus twerking on Beetlejuice.

Demonstrating once again that its marketing department is full of geniuses, Old Spice launched Dikembe Mutombo’s 4 1/2 Weeks To Save The World three weeks ago, and it’s going viral to hilarious effect. Featuring the voice of Dikembe Mutombo himself, the game sets the tone:

dikembemutombo

“A kabillion some odd years ago-ish, the Mayans predicted the world will end on December 21, 2012, which is a terrible idea since we as humans have not even invented a self-combing hair yet.

“Someone had to defend our planet and prevent this from happening. And that defender had to be me: Dikembe Mutumbo.

“For 4 1/2 weeks, I will courageously battle to save our world and, with your help, carve additional time into the Mayan calendar to buy us more time on the earth. That’s why this game is called: “Dikembe Mutombo’s 4 1/2 Weeks to Save the World.”

Each week, the site includes a new retro-style game placing you in the huge shoes of Dikembe Mutombo and, with the help of Science the bear, pitting you against whatever pop-culture reference is currently threatening to destroy the world. The first week’s game sees the world threatened by a South Korean dance craze that ”is well past its natural social buzz shelf life,” and distracting Americans from voting.  Click any of the photos to check the method.

Louis Vuitton Board Games.


Louis Vuitton presents “All Aboard Games,” a video created by “Ill Studio”, that takes the viewer on a “fantastic and surrealist voyage inside a Louis Vuitton game case.”  All of the iconic game symbols that the French brand have been using since 1888 are featured in this colorful piece. Chess, checkers, cards, dominoes, roulette, etc…  The film was released onto LV’s online magazine New, Now and falls in line with their trend towards promoting the vintage lifestyle and the brands historical roots.

If Video Game Consoles Were Buildings…


French culture magazine ‘Amusement’ has posted a fun photo feature online called If I were President…, which replaces buildings with super-sized gaming consoles and handhelds. It’s funny, I never realized before how much our old-school NES resembled a Brutalist structure. Click through to see how the PS3 looks on the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin…

The Nissan GT Academy.


In my mind, there are primarily two types of serious video gamers out there… The ones who play games because they perform some of those actions in real life (football players that play Madden, ball players who play NBA Live, marines who play Call Of Duty, etc.) and then there are the type of gamers who play games because they imagine one day they’d have the skills to perform some actions in real life.  However, there does come the rare occasion when gamers who have no real life training in something play game long enough, and for so well, that they actually become capable of pulling off some of their digital tricks in real life.  Coincidentally Nissan recognized this with a few champions of Grand Turismo 5.  The game is so life like, the cars so well tuned, and the mechanics so close to the real thing, they’ve chosen a select few to compete in REAL cars for a spot on the professional Nissan racing team.  Check the method below.

The Video-Game T-Shirt.


The tech company Zappar has teamed up with Hybrid Apparel to launch a range of T-shirts that feature augmented-reality technology.  The tees, which go on sale in December, coincide with an app that brings the graphics to life when viewed on an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet device. As you can see in the video, a viewer can even play a video game on a friend’s T-shirt, through their tablet.

Tough to wrap your head around? Check out the video, which actually makes the whole concept appear pretty cool. I wonder: Will people actually get on board with augmented-reality clothing? Who knows; it could be the next big thing in fashion.

The Force Unleased 2.


If you happen to follow me on twitter, you know I just copped an Xbox 360, (Its only significant, because I haven’t play videogames in 4 years, and all my boys think its funny to try and destroy my free time.)  But right now I’m trying to figure out which games to get a hold of, and which ones can wait, and when I saw the 4-minute-long trailer for “Force Unleashed 2” I knew I had to get it.  I know this footage is a bit dated, but it’s still quite impressive… check the method below.

I like to Move it, Move it.


Check the video from Gamepro. (And that is NOT me inside the bubble)

Sony recently unveiled their ‘Playstation Move’. Essentially its the Nintendo Wii in the gym… with a protein shake… on steroids… with the combined strength of every Power Ranger… after eating Mister T… and Vin Diesel. Click the picture for an exclusive video from Gamepro.
