What if Wall-E were real? Anthony Meadows’ Wall-E: Down to Earth (Part 1, Part 2) is a beautifully shot using a JVC GZ-HD3 with music from the soundtrack and Thomas Newman.
Inside Digital Foundry has some demo gameplay up for Ninja Blade; it’s visually similar to the trailer, which is a good thing, although there’s a heavy reliance on Quicktime events.
