Destroy All Humans: PotF

Destroy All Humans: PotF

The Destroy All Humans series has jumped the shark for some, but we’re salivating over Path of the Furon’s improved damage realism, new aerial battles and five open worlds.

Interactive Objects Video

Interactive Objects Video

Fallout 3: Wasteland Dancin’

Fallout 3: Wasteland Dancin’

More machinima craziness with this Wasteland Dancin’ video for Fallout 3; it uses the “Umpa” mod which basically puts everyone from Mr. Burke to the Enclave in a groovin’ mood.

Star Wars vs. Star Trek

Star Wars vs. Star Trek

Nerdgasm alert: there will never be any final word on the great Star Trek vs. Star Wars debate, but the hilarious video above is one of the best we’ve seen (with a twist at the end).

Trailer: Yakuza 3

Trailer: Yakuza 3

We don’t understand a lick of Japanese, but that doesn’t make this trailer for Yakuza 3 any less cool: it’s a shame that the previous game flopped in the states, as this one will be Japan-only.

Trailer: Savage Moon

Trailer: Savage Moon

As if Defense Grid wasn’t enough, Savage Moon is another Tower Defense-type game. It’s coming soon to PSN with equally amazing graphics and is $10 cheaper than the former.

Video: Gort vs. Fox NFL

Video: Gort vs. Fox NFL

Fox NFL Sunday might want to rethink Cleatus’ contract; he meets The Day the Earth Stood Still’s supersized Gort with predictably explosive results in this short but satisfying trailer.

Short Film: 9

Short Film: 9

Shane Acker’s critically acclaimed short film, 9, has signed up Elijah Wood for the lead animated role; it’s also being produced by Tim Burton. If you missed the original short, check it out above.

Video: TF2 Machinima

Video: TF2 Machinima

Team Fortress has always been quirky, but this machinima video turns its zaniness into a virtual art form, with Lord of the Dance like death sequences and tennis with rocket launchers.

Trailer #2: Soldner-X

Trailer #2: Soldner-X

Soldner-X is coming to the PSN 12/4 for $10, and with it they’ve dropped a second trailer to entice lolly gaggers. Nothing too new here: just tons of explosions, but we ain’t complaining.

Dark Side of the Moog

Dark Side of the Moog

With faint echoes of The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine, we’re really liking The Boxing Lesson’s Dark Side of the Moog; trippy psychedelic visuals and interstellar trekkin’ = tasty eyecandy.

Iran: Nation of Bloggers

Iran: Nation of Bloggers

No matter your politics, it’s tough not to appreciate the overall message and style of Iran: Nation of Bloggers; it’s clearly influenced by Persepolis, albeit with strong cyberpunk overtones.

Stop Motion Breakdancing

Stop Motion Breakdancing

Professional dancers Del Mak and Tommy Franzen lay the breakdancing smack down on each other with this goofy stop motion video, which mixes slapstick comedy with scary jumpsuits.

Video: Skyrails

Video: Skyrails

Coded in C++ by a 21 y/o Irish Ph.D. student, Skyrails is a social network visualization system; using scripts, it’s heavily customizable and will even take live data. Download it here.

Video: Kid Gamer Faces

Video: Kid Gamer Faces

Recorded by The New York Times’ Robbie Cooper, this video shows the faces of various kids as they play video games; we’re pretty sure they’re similar to our own slack-jawed visages.

Co-Robot Kit

Co-Robot Kit

He may be limited to a single motor, but for $30, Co-Robot does a fair amount of domo arigato, Mr. Roboto: the little guy walks, dances and even picks himself up if he falls.

Prince of Persia: Elika

Prince of Persia: Elika

Simultaneously a hottie and a novel gameplay concept, Prince of Persia’s Elika gets shown off in this new trailer; in many ways, she and the prince use each other as human slingshots.

Strobo VJ Sequencer

Strobo VJ Sequencer

Gijs Gieskes’ Strobo VJ is a funky handmade animation sequencer; it uses a Game Boy camera to record animations, and then syncs them to music using LSDJ (also a GB app).

US Navy x Star Wars

US Navy x Star Wars

It’s not quite a Star Destroyer, but the USS Shiloh is the backdrop for the Star Wars fan film above. The sailors really go to town with light sabers and a “Haduken!” thrown in for good measure.

Trailer: Defense Grid

Trailer: Defense Grid

Tower Defense fanatics should check out this trailer for Defense Grid: The Awakening; it’s a bit pricey at $20 but if the game is as addictive as it is gorgeous, it will be worth every cent.

Teaser: Astro Boy

Teaser: Astro Boy

Manga doesn’t get much more original than Astro Boy, so we’re excited to see this teaser for the upcoming CG film due out in 2009. It’s made by the same studio that’s doing Gatchaman.

Trailer: Arkham Asylum

Trailer: Arkham Asylum

It’s a bit lacking in action, but this trailer for Batman: Arkham Asylum does a good job at showing off the game’s creepy environments; it doesn’t get much funkier than a mental hospital.

Trailer: Wanted

Trailer: Wanted

Video game versions of movies usually leave much to be desired, but this trailer for Wanted looks promising; you’ll get to use the movie’s signature curvy bullet effect. Note: mild f-bomb.

Burj Dubai BASE Jump

Burj Dubai BASE Jump

BASE jumpers may be clinically insane, but we have to give props to this duo who jumped off the Burj Dubai (the world’s tallest building); the actual jump at 4:30 is breathtaking.

HD Video: Dancing

HD Video: Dancing

Guy dancing alone = goofy. People around the world dancing with him, from Chicago to Paris to the West Bank = awesome. The human spirit wins out huge on this gloriously sharp HD video.

Trailer: Megaman

Trailer: Megaman

A big hat tip to Eddie Lebron, whose low-budget adaptation of Mega Man shows the little guy can make movies worth watching; everything from the acting to the teleporting is dead on.

South Park: Call of Duty

South Park: Call of Duty

South Park has always scored points for relevance (or irrelevance), and the clip above is no different: a classroom turns into a Call of Duty: WaW session. In Cartman’s words: “You got pwned!”

Video/Art: Science Machine

Video/Art: Science Machine

If you can tolerate the trippy soundtrack, the video above is a fascinating look into the world of a graphic artist; watch as Chad Pugh works on his Science Machine print, for sale here.

Trailer: Elven Legacy

Trailer: Elven Legacy

Elven Legacy looked like yet another (albeit good-looking) fantasy game, at least until we saw hexes: we’re big turn-based gamers, so we’re eagerly awaiting its Q1 ’09 release.

Gameplay: Agatha Ragata

Gameplay: Agatha Ragata

Even if witches and fantasy gaming aren’t your thing, Oxeye’s Agatha Ragata is worth a look for its immersive music and sound effects; we think the laughtrack is particularly effective.

John Oliver vs. John King

John Oliver vs. John King

The Daily Show’s John Oliver takes one last parting shot at the famous “Magic Wall” used in the US elections; there are some hilarious moments as he takes on CNN’s own John King.
