Claymation: Resident Evil

Claymation: Resident Evil

It isn’t the first time we’ve seen clay used for gory ends (thank you, Robot Chicken), but the Claymation version of Resident Evil does a great job retelling the story in less than 3 minutes.

Where Tetris Comes From

Where Tetris Comes From

It sounds like the title to a cheesy sex-ed film, but Where Tetris Comes From is a catchy little ad complete with cell-shaded graphics for South Korean gaming network Naver/NHN.

Transformers 2 x Twitter

Transformers 2 x Twitter

The acting for Transformers 2: Revenge of the Twitter Icons is corny and the plot even moreso, but then again, we could say the same for Michael Bay’s new movie. Thanks, Tenshi!

RIP, Michael

RIP, Michael

His lifestyle was the source of much controversy in recent years, but we’d like to pay our respects in honor of what he was best known for: his music. RIP, Michael Jackson, King of Pop.

Short Film: Red Rabbit

Short Film: Red Rabbit

We had a rabbit once. It dug holes and crapped everywhere. Red Rabbit isn’t too different, but it does show that the secrets we hide may not be as big as we think they are.

Corvette vs F/A-18 Hornet

Corvette vs F/A-18 Hornet

In the interests of suspense we won’t reveal the ending, but come on: a Corvette ZR1 vs an F/A-18 Hornet? MotorTrend’s “race” is a little silly, but still fun; the action starts at 8 minutes.

Buzz Aldrin x Snoop Dogg

Buzz Aldrin x Snoop Dogg

Buzz Aldrin records his latest track, Rocket Experience (buy it at iTunes), at the studio with Snoop Dog and Talib Kweli; best line ever by Snoop Dog: “Buzz Aldrin is so gangsta!”

Trailer: The Last Airbender

Trailer: The Last Airbender

Strange casting decisions aside, we’re cautiously optimistic over this first (relatively short) trailer for M. Night Shymalan’s live-action version of The Last Airbender; thanks, Brian!

Uncle Gary: Saints Row 2

Uncle Gary: Saints Row 2

The strangest thing about this Uncle Gary trailer for Saints Row 2’s UnKut DLC isn’t really Gary Busey’s maniacal laughter; it’s that we think it’s pretty normal behavior for him.

Pulsejet Bike Engine

Bob Maddox’s sweet but ridiculously overpowered bicycle is getting put on the auction block–specifically the twin 50lb Pulsejet engines that propelled his own ride to 73 mph.

Game Trailer: Ghostwire

Game Trailer: Ghostwire

This Ghostwire trailer is as creepy as the game’s concept; you’ll use your DSi to hunt for EVPs (electronic voice phenomena) as it blends real-life with (hopefully) simulated ghosts.

DC Trailer: The Conduit

DC Trailer: The Conduit
Buy

Wii-only shooter The Conduit launches June 23; check out this DC/Launch Trailer, which mixes energy weapons and Washington’s greatest landmarks (with predictable results).

UK Launch Trailer: ArmA II

UK Launch Trailer: ArmA II

Yanks will have to wait for ArmA II, but this UK Launch Trailer should tide us over for now: with no scripts, preset pathways or outcomes, it could be pure genius or utter disaster.

Revealed: The Stig

Revealed: The Stig

The Stig, Top Gear’s enigmatic stunt driver, is finally revealed to the world in the video above. We won’t spoil you with his/her identity, other than that it’s a great day to be an F1 fan.

Video: First Nerd President

Video: First Nerd President

This roast of Obama by John Hodgman makes our geeky hearts to shed a tear–it calls POTUS 44 the first nerd president ever, with pithy references to Superman, Spock and Dune.

Video: He’s Barack Obama

Video: He’s Barack Obama

He’s Barack Obama isn’t as edgy as JibJab’s past work, but is well animated; it’s surprisingly palatable for both Republicans and Democrats–satire for the former, chest-thumping for the latter.

Resident Evil Last Escape

Resident Evil Last Escape

The video is pretty choppy, but we appreciate the merger of two great zombie games in Resident Evil Last Escape: it creates RE3’s Raccoon City using Left 4 Dead graphics.

Free: 1066

Free: 1066

1066 looks simple, but we easily burned an hour playing it; it’s a turn-based strategy game which recreates medieval battles in England with battle charges, arrows and taunts.

Gameplay: IL-2 Sturmovik

Gameplay: IL-2 Sturmovik

It’s been ages since we played a decent flight sim, but based on the sweet graphics in this IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey gameplay trailer, it may be time to dust off those aviator goggles.

Procedural System Structure

Procedural System Structure

If you liked the Procedural City we demoed previously, Procedural System Structure blows it out of the water: in English, it not only generates cities on the fly but their interiors, too.

Video: Toy Movies

Video: Toy Movies

Atom.com pokes fun at this summer’s wave of movies based on 80s toons with Toy Movies; Care Bears, My Little Pony and The Smurfs all go Hollywood in a very bad way.

Dr. Manhattan’s Pants

Dr. Manhattan’s Pants

We tried our best to ignore it, but Dr. Manhattan’s Pants brings the glowing blue dude’s conspicuous lack of apparel front and center; best line: “Put Ozymandias’ pants back on now!”

48 Cylinder Kawasaki

48 Cylinder Kawasaki

Utterly insane yet freakin’ cool, Simon Whitlock’s 48 Cylinder Kawasaki motorcycle packs six 8-cylinder engines with 4200cc, a BMW transmission and six Jaguar E-type distributors.

Worms 2: Armageddon

Worms 2: Armageddon

Coming soon to XBLA, Worms 2: Armageddon is packed with features worthy of the franchise: gorgeous new vertical levels and more weapons than you can shake a worm at.

Mountain Dew x WoW

Mountain Dew x WoW

Seeing two hot chicks go at it in the supermarket over Mountain Dew is about as likely as seeing the same two playing World of Warcraft, so consider the TV spot above a gift from the gods.

Free: ARhrrrr!

Free: ARhrrrr!

Developed by Georgia Tech’s Augmented Environments Lab, ARhrrrr! is a shooter with a twist: it uses a Tegra devkit as a gun to take out zombies shambling about a 3D city.
