    watching me watching you 

    In case you’ve followed/still following this blog: it’s woefully out of date. I’ve actually been writing elsewhere and unable to double-post the content back here. I’m looking into the WordPress vs. Tumblr thing and going to try to bring this back up to date. In the meantime, here’s a sweet trailer showing off some details on the upcoming Watch_dogs.

    Wait. Tell me if you’ve heard this one before 

    So, here we were watching some movie trailers over lunch when we stumbled across the new Narnia 3 trailer.  After having read and been disappointed with the books as a kid, the movies haven’t really caught my attention.  The trailer music did however, because I had heard it before…

    Pixels invade as art 

    A very neat little music video featuring a blend of pixel art and real world shots.  You aren’t cool unless you have corners.

    Get hyped for: Monday Night Combat 

    Monday Night Combat is a new Xbox Live Arcade title coming out in the near future.  It plays like a cross between Defense of the Ancients and Team Fortress.  A more detailed description would be a 3rd person shooter, where you control 1 of a few teammate “heroes.”  During the combat, large waves of robots spawn in each team’s base and march to the center, where without intervention they will meet halfway and come to a standstill.  It is up to each team’s heroes to push their team’s army of robots further and further into the enemy base, where they can be used to destroy it.  It plays out like a Tower Defense game, if you were controlling the mobs, and the towers placed throughout the map are your enemies.

    Monday Night Combat looks like it will support modes for 4 on 4, split screen, and a 2 on 2 mode.  Demo to be available (as with all XBLA titles) when it is released.

    Check out this trailer:
