Gameplay: Magic Ball

Gameplay: Magic Ball

Available at the PSN store today, Magic Ball is kinda like Arkanoid, except with destructible 3D environments, trophies, multiplayer and VOIP support … that, and pirates. Yaarrrr.

History of the Internet

History of the Internet

Directed by Melih Bilgil, History of the Internet starts from the early days of Arpanet to the modern-day development of TCP/IP; we like the way he puts it in perspective of world events.

Doogie Howser Orchestra

Doogie Howser Orchestra

It’s no stretch to say that NPH has been on a roll as of late: this past weekend’s SNL was capped off by an orchestral homage to the Doogie Howser theme. We cried at the end too, bro.

Trailer: Dead Snow

Trailer: Dead Snow

Few things are more hated than Nazis, zombies and entitled coeds, but Dead Snow dares to combine them all into a bloody Sundance film; this has epic win splattered all over it.

Trailer: MySims Party

One thing we learned in our days drinking studying at college is that you can never have too many party games; MySims Party is coming to the Wii and the DS with 50 mini games.

Teaser: T-28

Teaser: T-28

Fresh from IMAGI (who brought us the Astro Boy and Gatchman teasers), T-28 is a resurrection of the Tetsujin manga; it hasn’t been picked up by a studio per se, but it sure looks promising.

Improv Everywhere’s annual No Pants subway ride went off without a hitch (or britches) on January 10, with over 2,500 pantless riders in 22 cities around the world. Mmm, legs…

Hajirai Machine Girl

Hajirai Machine Girl

Coming to theaters January 23, Hajirai Machine Girl is not for the faint of heart; only in Japan would a machine gun emerging from a bikini girl’s behind seem even remotely normal.

Gameplay: Yakuza 3

Gameplay: Yakuza 3

This gameplay video for Yakuza 3 is light on any real innovation; it’s just a dude in a suit wailing on victim after victim in street brawls, but with the moves of a UFC/WWF fighter.

Trailer: Flock!

Trailer: Flock!

We love developers who don’t take themselves too seriously, and Flock! doles it out in bales of wool: this funky action puzzler lets you fly a UFO, abduct sheep and carve crop circles.

GT Preview: Afro Samurai

GT Preview: Afro Samurai

We’re looking forward to Afro Samurai come 1/27, and this GameTrailers preview doesn’t disappoint; the game is bloody, but in a fluid, cell-shaded way that borders on visual poetry.

Video: OSM 2008 Edits

Short Film: Buck Rogers

Short Film: Buck Rogers

Painstakingly created by Visual Effects student Patrick De Leon, this five minute Buck Rogers short film is a campy mix of real actors and rayguns, robots and futuristic cityscapes.

Ragdoll Cannon: Remake

Ragdoll Cannon: Remake

It won’t be winning any awards for the graphics, but Ragdoll Cannon: Remake is deliciously fun; your objective is to hurl hordes of ragdolls at targets spread across 25 levels.
