    Trailers: Snipers - Trailer

    That has got to be one of the lamest ads I've ever seen. Why does it keep cutting back to the hand drawn dude chilling by the window? Why does every tiny piece of the UI and the mechanics look like a broken COD game? With the name "hydravision" I thought the developers were directly parodying...

    Escape to the Movies: A Look Ahead

    It's been mentioned once already but: Nicolas Winding Refn. Ryan Gosling. Drive. If you haven't seen the clip or the new trailer, check that shit out.

    Recommend Some PS2 Titles

    Not that any of these suggestions are new, but Silent Hill 2 and 3 are fun if you're into survival horror, and Shadow of the Colossus is fun if you're into good games. And if you haven't played any God of War titles, my condolences to you.

    Game of Thrones: Favorite character

    Tyrion for sure. I haven't read the books so I'm just going on the show so far, and he's the only one so far who seems genuinely honest while still having a personality beyond being infinitely hounarable <--- lookin at you ned. Overall though the entire cast has been pretty solid. Some of the...

    310: Green Barrels Don't Explode

    I feel like you're marginalizing this issue. Some of your suggestions are decent but I hardly think them concrete enough to guarantee alleviating this issue. How exactly do you design a tutorial that subtly forces the player to hold the A button a bit longer as opposed to mashing it? Getting...

    Extra Punctuation: Action Is Not Finisher Porn

    I liked God of War's qte's, they had a consistency to them. Minotaurs always had the blade in the mouth, Medusas had the head twisty removal, etc. It helped negate the problem that I usually have with qte's, in that they're pretty much just random button mashing. And although they're not quite...

    Thank you, America.

    Interesting all this talk about mountain dew being the super energy drink. In Canada its a pansy over-sweet drink that's caffeine free o_O. However, there's an Energy Drink versio called AMP. And I drink that shit just about every day.

    What is your favorite "Unknown" game?

    Glitch in the System was a pretty fun time. Not terribly unique but it made me lol. Also: Beyond Good and Evil. It certainly isn't as obscure as some of the other stuff in this thread, but still that game is way under-appreciated and under-played.

    Trailers: F.E.A.R. 3 Story Trailer

    Fear had an interesting if flawed story that went completely off the deep end in the sequel. I genuinely loved the first one, but after fear 2... I'm done with this series.

    Escape to the Movies: Sucker Punch

    I liked watchmen. It had its epic moments. But I wouldn't even approach praising it to the point that Bob does. And now in this review he seems more inclined to talk about how amazing Snyder is for directing Watchmen than anything to do with Sucker Punch. I think I'm going to side with the...
