Stephen Chow’s CJ7

Stephen Chow’s CJ7

It may be kid-oriented, but CJ7 is a must-see for fans of Hong Kong-style slapstick comedy; it’s coming to the US 3/14/08 and is directed by Stephen Chow of Kung Fu Hustle fame.

Wingsuit BASE Jumping

Wingsuit BASE Jumping

Short of being Fusionman, the wingsuit BASE jumpers in the video above are the closest that man will ever get to flying; it’s pretty sick stuff, especially when they buzz the camera.

White Knight Chronicles

White Knight Chronicles

Coming to North America sometime in 2009, White Knight Chronicles is a third-person, full-length 100 hour RPG by Level-5; the trailer above is flat-out, jaw-dropping awesome.

Free: Stackopolis

Free: Stackopolis

An oldie but a goodie, Stackopolis lets you build pixel cities using blocks to a Cowboy Bepop-ish soundtrack. Seems easy, until you run out the clock and get your ass handed to you.

Video: Slow-Mo Punches

Video: Slow-Mo Punches

We don’t think we’re sadistic, but there’s just something oh-so-enjoyable (and poetic) about watching the unwitting victims above get punched in the slow motion. Thanks, Maz!

Free: The Last Stand

Free: The Last Stand

Yes, it’s yet another zombie game, but The Last Stand had us hooked for a solid hour trying to survive twenty successive waves of the undead; hint: invest in a good weapon early.

AdvanTech Showreel ’08

AdvanTech Showreel ’08

Specializing in car-oriented videos, AdvanTech Studios’ Showreel ’08 is pure sex for auto aficionados; filled with slo-mo drifts and vignetting, you may have seen some of this in Top Gear.

Trailer: Dead Rising

Trailer: Dead Rising

Nothing will ever top the Heidi Kum Guitar Hero commercial, but this trailer for Dead Rising: Chop Til You Drop is pretty freakin cool, in a zombie mobbed, chainsaw flying way.

Beware of the Doghouse

Beware of the Doghouse

Although it’s a viral ad for JC Penney, Beware of the Doghouse describes the predicament of guys so well that we can’t help but nod our heads (and wag our tails) in agreement.

Trailer: Demon’s Souls

Trailer: Demon’s Souls

We could deal without the continuous operatic wail in the background, but this trailer for Japanese action RPG Demon’s Souls is an absolute eyeful for medieval fantasy fans.

New Year 2009 Fireworks

New Year 2009 Fireworks

Not sober (or conscious) enough to remember last night’s New Year festivities at the stroke of midnight? Check out these New Year 2009 firework videos from around the world: Vimeo, Youtube.

Colbert Intros 2008

Colbert Intros 2008

Satirical spin-off The Colbert Report is known for its pun-laden verbal metaphor teasers; the video above is a rapid-fire collection (hat tip to Comedy Central) of the show’s 2008 intros.

Free: Battle Gear

Free: Battle Gear

What better way to ring in the new year than with a bid for world domination: Battle Gear offers both offensive and defensive modes, with a vast selection of land, air and sea units.

New York Bike Dreams

New York Bike Dreams

NYC bike culture comes alive with this video from the New York Bike Dreams photo exhibit in Tokyo; the tricks are off the cuff, with nothing sped up or slowed down. Thanks, Brian!

Wall-E: Down To Earth

Wall-E: Down To Earth

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.

Gameplay: Ninja Blade

Gameplay: Ninja Blade

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.

Race To Witch Mountain

Race To Witch Mountain

Sure, Race To Witch Mountain may be targeted for kids and filled with cringe-tastically predictable lines, but we’ll see it for the telekinetic aliens, Matrix-like effects and The Rock.

Trailer: Chun-Li

Trailer: Chun-Li

Reviews are mixed over this Japanese-dubbed trailer for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li; nobody looks like any of the game’s characters, but Kristin Kreuk as Chun-Li = hot.

One Year In Forty Seconds

One Year In Forty Seconds

A simple concept breathtakingly rendered in HDR, Eirik Solheim compresses a year of photographs in a wooded setting into only 40 seconds; it was shot using clips from his Canon 400D.

One Night in Beijing

One Night in Beijing

Shot only half a day after photographer Dan Chung bought his EOS 5D MK II, One Night in Beijing utilizes five pieces of Nikon and Zeiss glass and is a delight for people watchers.

Battlestations: Pacific

Battlestations: Pacific

This epic battles developer diary for Battlestations: Pacific is a bit of South Pacific paradise for WWII combat buffs; it’s chock full of both cinematics and gameplay battle videos.

JibJab 2008 in Review

JibJab 2008 in Review

JibJab’s yearly videos are now nearly as traditional as the NYC ball drop; their 2008 Year in Review takes jabs at all the usual suspects, including the economy and the elections.

Multitouch Music Device

Multitouch Music Device

Built by Randy Jones for his CS thesis, this multitouch music device is actually a passive force sensor that makes music with a MacBook Pro via an 8×8 RME audio interface.

The Craft of War: BLIND

The Craft of War: BLIND

Putting the wow in WoW, The Craft of War: BLIND is a superbly crafted machinima by Percula with a cool storyline (Blood Elf Rogue + Onyxia) and awesome choreography. Thanks, Ash

One-Man Wind Waker

One-Man Wind Waker

Compiled in less than a week by 23 year-old Fredrik Larsson, this one-man Wind Waker music video (a-la Zelda) shows him playing everything from an accordion to a pan flute.

Free: Pyro

Free: Pyro

Pyro is a bit like billiards, assuming you set your cue balls on fire and tipped the table over vertically; your objective is to light torches using elastic fireballs and combustible crates.

2010 BMW Z4 Art Car

2010 BMW Z4 Art Car

Very few things are more indulgent than taking a 2010 BMW Z4 and using it to paint tire tracks on a gigantic canvas; still, it’s worth watching for the hard-top sequence at the end.

Video: Kaleido-Lapse

Video: Kaleido-Lapse

Nothing stops traffic like flashing lights, so this video of a carnival by Sai Win Myint Oo should easily overload our primitive ape brains; as if that’s not enough, it’s set to trippy Bjork music.

Lightsaber Nunchucks

Lightsaber Nunchucks

No special effects here: this Lightsaber Nunchucks video is actually a pair of 6″ glow sticks attached with a link chain and then twirled around in front of a high speed camera.

Motorola x Santacon

Motorola x Santacon

Even Santa has a posse, as evidenced by this new Motorola bluetooth headset ad that takes the recent SantaCon street gatherings and co-opts them with good ol’ capitalism.

Live Action Thundercats

Live Action Thundercats

This fan-made Thundercats trailer is surprisingly good; it’s amazing what some snazzy editing (check out that virtual grey face paint on Hollywood actors) and dubbed lines can do.
