First Look at Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD Gameplay

By Jon Partridge on March 12, 2012 1:45 PM | Permalink |

Tony Hawk and Chris Cole take us through the first look at the upcoming remake of the 90's classics and show us how things are shaping up.

Definitely a game to keep your eye on, especially if you're a fan of the franchise as the game itself delves back into it's own roots and is made up of a lot of code from the original games - but with a fresh new lick of paint that looks pretty much gorgeous. Get that soundtrack on and take a look at this video.

The Hangover: What We've Been Drinking, Doing and Burning This Weekend - March 10th Edition

By Dennis Wyman on March 10, 2012 12:05 PM | Permalink |


It's that time of the weekend again. Jon is presumably still passed out, but I'm awake now after a glorious tire fire last night in the backwoods of central Florida, so it looks like I'm the one leading you guys through this week's Hangover.

What have we been drinking? We're still on the vodka streak, as last night we moved on to the potent mix of Smirnoff Pear Vodka and 5 Hour Energy shots. Unfortunately, you can only have so many of these mixes before the caffeine becomes just a little too much, so after awhile we ditched the 5 Hour and finished the vodka off straight.

What else have we been up to?

  • First off, just about everyone has seen the KONY 2012 ad campaign. War correspondant and expert in central African affairs Keith Harmon Snow offers up an excellent rebuttal. [YouTube]
  • It has been a little while since we featured the Retsupurae guys here. Their latest video flashes back to an old Sega classic, Altered Beast. [YouTube]
  • LSD also has the potential to treat alcoholism? A retrospective analysis of old studies is saying "yes." [Scientific American]
  • We've been following The Coup and SSSC frontman Boots Riley on Facebook as he posts updates and commentary on the latest happenings with Occupy Oakland. [Facebook]
  • Reading about Businessweek's financial analysis on social networking giant, Twitter. [Gawker]
  • Listening to the fantastic new album by Memphis rockers Lucero, which is now up for free streaming before its release. [Rolling Stone]

Got any party stories to share from this week? Lets hear them in the comments, and until next week...

Picking Up Girls With Video Game Lines

By Jon Partridge on February 23, 2012 6:30 PM | Permalink |

The boys from Simple Pickup are back at it again, this time though, using cheesy lines involving video games. Whilst previous videos have shown various themes such as memes, looking like douchebags or nerds or even using lines from the Fresh Prince himself, this week shows them getting digits using very lame lines.

Gotta hand it to them though, their boldness only inspires us on. Godspeed.

Tokyo Game Show: Alice Madness Returns Trailer

By Nathanial Rumphol-Janc on September 15, 2010 10:42 AM | Permalink |

Alice in Wonderland is a all time classic story, now told in two video versions a couple other older games as well. Of course, it is also in book form for those wondering where it all started. However, Madness Returns (being created by EA) seems to take place after all of those events in Wonderland, giving it a lot of creative freedom to create whatever sort of story they want. With how bizarre and messed up the story is in the original, we could be in for a lot of surprises. The visuals look good, and the atmosphere seems spot on from this small trailer. The questions is: Can the game play be good enough for this to be a success? Time will tell, but I would be lying if I didn't say I was a little excited. Screenshots after the jump.

By Nathanial Rumphol-Janc on September 13, 2010 10:14 PM | Permalink |

This was possibly one of the most entertaining watches in a long time for me. While I may have a different mindset than many of you out there (as being someone who needs to consider a lot of what they talk about in terms of entertaining our audience) it's still informative overall for anyone considering getting into the industry. Hop inside for parts two and three.

Master Hand Playable in Super Smash Bros. Melee

By Damir Halilović on July 1, 2010 8:02 PM | Permalink |

As the GameTrailers video above shows, Master Hand, the boss in the Smash Bros. series is actually playable in the game without using any Action Replay codes. The whole thing works by exploiting a glitch which allows you to go to the map selection screen without choosing a character. What this does is force the game to assign you the fighter with the first ID in the database, which is Master Hand. The reason it has to be player 3 is because Master Hand reserves that slot every time he is present.

Be warned though, as with other glitches in games, this will cause the game to go funky. Master Hand's controls are mapped to the wrong buttons and he is unbeatable because he cannot be launched off the platform (You don't get health in stock matches). The game also freezes from time to time if Master Hand is in play.
