Raving Rabbids Xmas

Transformers Mac vs. PC

Transformers Mac vs. PC

We doubt the Mac vs. PC debate will ever be put to rest, but this Transformers themed short by Nick Greenlee easily puts those endless Get a Mac / I’m A PC commercials to shame.

Short History of Videogames

Short History of Videogames

Made by RMIT student Kyle Downes, A Short Visual History of Videogames starts from 1972’s Pong and stops just short of current gen consoles, but is wonderfully rendered nonetheless.

DIY: NERF Chaingun

This Nerf Chaingun is a heavily modded Nerf Vulcan that fires 500 rounds per minute by quadrupling the voltage for some serious cubicle pwnage. Get the full instructions here.

Dissidia: Final Fantasy

Connecting the real and virtual worlds, Mightier is an indie game where players draw the solution to a puzzle on paper, draw the main character and scan both of them into the game.

R2-D2 Chorus Line

R2-D2 Chorus Line

R2-D2 has always been cool cute (unlike Ewoks, who were annoying cute); this chorus line by the R2-D2 Builders Club in California is a uber cool homage to our favorite droid.

Free: Viking Defense

Free: Viking Defense

We have a weakness for tower defense games, so it’s no surprise we’ve wasted countless hours on Viking Defense; there’s nothing like a horde of pillagers to get your heartrate up.

Video: Uwe Boll Contra

Video: Uwe Boll Contra

What if Uwe Boll made Contra?” will send shivers down the spine of any old-school gamer, but the hilarious parody above is so spot-on we wish it was made into a full-length movie.

Fans of car chases should checkout this trailer for Wheelman; set in Barcelona with your car is your primary weapon, the racing game stars Vin Diesel and is due out 2/16/09.

Trailer #2: Knowing

Trailer #2: Knowing

This latest trailer for Knowing (w/Nicholas Cage) reveals a bit more of the plot; looks like things are going to get apocalyptic, with a little M. Night Shyamalan-style suspense mixed in.

Trailer: Iron Sky

Trailer: Iron Sky

From the creators of Star Wreck, Iron Sky (currently in pre-production) has a deliciously b-movie style plot: Space Nazis from the far side of the moon invade the Earth in the year 2018.

Fight Night Round 4

Fight Night Round 4

Fight Night Round 4’s trailer is an aspiring boxer’s dream, pitting Muhammad Ali against Mike Tyson; imaginary matchups aside, it’ll feature more realistic knockouts and fighting styles.

Free: Frost Bite 2

Free: Frost Bite 2

A less violent, more vertically oriented version of Bionic Commando, Frost Bite 2 uses a grappling hook that lets you catapult your way up walls and cliffs; it also doubles as a weapon.

Intro: Skate 2

Intro: Skate 2

Skate 2’s intro movie is a who’s who of pro skateboarders, with everyone from Rob Dyrdek and Big Black to Jerry Hsu; it’s pretty well directed, even with the quirky prison setting.

Video: Gotland Ring

Video: Gotland Ring

With a spaghetti western setup followed by trippy euro beats, Anders Backman’s video of the Gotland Ring in Sweden is pure automotive sex; Lambos and Porsches never looked so good.

Video: The Mactini

Video: The Mactini

As much as we love our iPods and MacBooks, this Mactini commercial had us in stitches; it’s a skit from the BBC’s Peter Serafinowicz Show and part of his Christmas special.

Video: Veni Vidi Vici

Video: Veni Vidi Vici

The University of Hertfordshire must be cloning brilliant digital artists, because Veni Vidi Vici not only has the looks but the humor meets heartwarming plot of a Pixar short.

Trailer: Mafia II

Trailer: Mafia II

Like GTA IV sans any pretenses of doing good, we hope Mafia II will be half as fun as the premier trailer above; it’s a nice 50s pastiche of car chases, gunfights and Little Richard.

30 Years of Apple

30 Years of Apple

Mac fans are agog over this 30 Years of Apple video; it’s a roundup of just about every product in the last three decades, from the Newton and Lisa to the Macbook and iPhone.

Soulcalibur x Criminal

Soulcalibur x Criminal

There’s something oddly hypnotic about this Soulcalibur IV video, set to Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal. Two Voldos are cool, although it gets a bit too kinky for us at 1:19.

Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2

Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2

Available 12/18 in Japan (Q1, USA), Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2 may be the bastard child of two franchises, but hordes of enemies + mecha + tweaked AI = one sexy bastard.

Top Gear: Tesla vs. Elise

Top Gear: Tesla vs. Elise

Top Gear pits the electric Tesla Roadster versus its gas guzzling Lotus Elise twin in the video above; it kicks butt with a 0-60 of 3.9s, but is anemic with only 55 miles on a charge.

Hexabot Robot Chair

Hexabot Robot Chair

It may not be a speed demon, but this six-legged Hexabot chair may be ideal for career couch potatoes; it was constructed by CMU student Rich Pantaleo for his final course project.

Trailer: God of War 3

Trailer: God of War 3

We’re skeptical about God of War 3’s “Everything must come to an end” tagline (profit equals endless sequels), but Kratos packin’ a pair of armored wolf gloves is pure awesome.

Music Video: Money

Music Video: Money

Filled to the brim with agitprop, Money is a starstudded collab (David Byrne, Chuck D, N.A.S.A.) that becomes particularly potent when mixed with the artwork of Shepard Fairey.

Trailer: Brutal Legend

Trailer: Brutal Legend

Fans of the 80s cult classic cartoon Heavy Metal, your time has come: Jack Black plays lead in Brutal Legend, an action/adventure game that mixes hard rock with Nordic fantasy.
