Posted by Damon on March 13, 2008

angelina-jolie-wanted-movie.jpg

I apologize for such a focus on movies lately, there’s just so many trailers coming out lately. This is the last one for a while, I promise (I hope). Wanted is a movie that I caught a trailer for a while back and it looks awesome and will be out on July 27th! Assassins, defying the laws of physics, Angelina Jolie and lots of action, how can you pass that up. The trailer speaks for itself so here it is, the Wanted trailer.

Go Speed Racer! Go! … oh god

Posted by Damon on March 13, 2008

speed-racer-1.jpg

Ok before I post the trailer lets take a minute to let everything soak in: you have two guys, brothers in fact, kinda fresh off their world wide fame from giving us The Matrix movies, which are some of the most famous moives ever made, sitting in their mom’s basement one day trying to come up with their next hit, the movie that brings them back to fame when they booth look at each other and in blissful synchronization say “Speed Racer!”? Come on! Seriously? Just look at that picture! How crappy must your career be to even think of wearing ANY of those outfits? Jeesbus! Now don’t get me wrong, the movie may be a craptacular hour and a half long bad trip on acid while some stranger pokes you with a fork experience awesome. Who knows. Anyway here it is in all its neon-O-rific glory, the Speed Racer trailer.

P.S. There are ninjas! WTF! With the level of technology that is displayed in the movie the most efficient way to kill someone is a ninja?? Why not just throw a stick in his cars spokes during a race while they are at it.

Lost Boys: The Tribe – Trailer

Posted by Damon on March 13, 2008

the_lostboys2.jpg

MTV.com recently released the world premiere trailer for The Lost Boys: The Tribe, the long awaited sequel to the original The Lost Boys that will hit rental shelves in July, yep, a straight to DVD movie. I am up in the air about this one, The Lost boys is a classic and I’m not sure it warranted a sequel but that doesn’t mean it will suck (heh suck). The sequel is set 21 years after the original movie which coincides with the fact it is coming out 21 years after the original. There are definite links to the original movies like The Frog brothers and the Coreys (both Haim and Feldman, time has not been kind to either). None the less, here it is, the trailer for Lost Boys: The Tribe after the jump.

breaking-bad-20080118045840840.jpg

These days there is a lot of good stuff to watch on network television, you got your Heroes, Prison Break, House, Supernatural, Grey’s Anatomy, My Name is Earl, Scrubs, blah blah blah and even the plethora of C.S.I’s. Don’t get me wrong, I love network television, it takes up a good chunk of my tv viewing time, but not all. Well one day Shane sent me this url for this nifty page blog called Walt’s Wisdom.

Logitech’s DiNovo Keyboard Ships Today

Posted by Damon on March 13, 2008

3a.jpg

One of my favorite peripheral making companies, Logitech, had has a product I have been keeping an eye on for a while now and it is finally shipping today! The DiNovo Mini is a wireless Bluetooth mini keyboard that was built with media center PCs in mind. Now don’t get me wrong, this keyboard isn’t meant to replace your media center remote for watching TV or movies but it will add some functionality to your media center that you probably don’t use because of the restrictions of a regular remote control. As a bonus feature, the DiNovo Mini can be paired with your Playstation 3 as a full keyboard. You can pick one up today at your local shop today for the reasonable price of $150.

The Incredible Hulk Trailer

Posted by Damon on March 12, 2008

edward-norton-incredible-hulk.jpg

Well as promised, here is the OFFICIAL trailer for the newest incarnation of the not so jolly green giant, The Incredible Hulk! To be honest, not too shabby, I am kind of impressed with what i saw but what I didn’t like was The Abomination (Tim Roth). He kind of looked like a giant boney meat puppet on steroids. Oh well. The full trailer after the jump.

My Girl Gamers Can Kick your Male gamers Butts!

Posted by Lynn on March 12, 2008

leftlogo.jpg

Worldwinner apparently performed a survey that men and women are evenly bloodthirsty when it comes to their competiveness.

Apparently, the survey discovered that both sexes share the same goal, which is to kick the opposite sex’s ass! It seems that women, about 39% of them, seek out competition practically daily whereas only 31% of men do. Read the rest of this entry »

BlizzCast Has Its Very Own Podcast (‘Bout Time)

Posted by Damon on March 12, 2008

blizzcast.jpg

Ok, I have been awake a total of 6 minutes so you will have to excuse me if this article is either nonsensical or not on par with my regular ones. Last night while logging into World of Warcraft for the umpteenth time, man they had some server lag issues, I took a second to actually read the launch links and found out that Blizzard has started it’s own podcast series.

Sending Us Back Into the Kitchen? WTF?

Posted by Lynn on March 12, 2008

51ozmafp2fl__aa280_.jpg

Ok, I am sure that most you women agree, the Wii is a great console! But WTF were they thinking when they made “Cooking Mama: Cook Off”??

Are they implying that we should be back in the kitchen cooking? And if we are not doing it in real life, then we should do it in game? Come on, it is bad enough that not only did they created the game, but also made utensil attachments! I feel like the prerequisite for this game is to barefoot and pregnant.

Unnamed 360 Addon Has Serious Promise

Posted by Damon on March 11, 2008

The guys over at KontrolFreek seemed to have come up with a great idea: allow gamers to actually have precision control when using a thumbstick! Why Microsoft or Sony didn’t think of this before is beyond me because this is a no brainer. Read the rest of this entry »

Max Payne Movie – First Look

Posted by Damon on March 11, 2008

markspayne_news.jpg

Everyone favorite gun sporting constipational (is that even a word?) vigilante is making his way to the silver screen ala Mark Wahlberg. That’s right, this is the first leeked photo of Marky Mark as Max Payne minus the pursed lips. The hype around this movie is very low right now with not much more than “we are making a Max Payne movie staring Mark Wahlberg” being said but I’m sure as time goes on we will hear more about this one. Not sure if Max Payne is the game I would have chosen to adapted into movie format but I guess someone liked it. The best part of the game, which is the drug induced slow motion scenes, better be done right is all I have to say. From what I hear they are shooting (heh shooting) for a PG-13 rating which is a horrible move, but hey, who knows right. Like always, expect more on this academy award winner as time goes on.

Being a Chick Has Its Perks…hehe

Posted by Lynn on March 11, 2008

girlgamer1.jpg

So as I stated in a previous blog, I am a female gamer. While playing WoW today, I experienced the ignorant statement of “girls don’t play WoW!” Now of course, this started an all out discussion of a woman’s participation in video games.

If you are a female gamer, or one of those that play a female toon, you know just as well as I do, that having a pair of breasts makes it a lot easier for you to group in major instances and sometimes even gives you special “perks”. Read the rest of this entry »
