Video of the Week – Halo: Reach Beta Trailer!

March 4, 2010

That time again, the middle of the week, and with it my favourite video I’ve seen this week and what do you know, it appeared today! Blasting onto the Internet with a freaking jetpack strapped to its back!

So much win in one trailer, new weapons, new abilities, gut punches, plenty of modes, Scorpion tanks rolling out, Snipers with seemingly effective recoil to stop hip firing spam, scoped pistols, grenade launchers, and mother trucking jetpacks.

Love you Bungie.

Game Art of the Week – Snapshots of a world (of warcraft)

February 27, 2010

I love World of Warcraft, as you may have noticed, and I’m currently enjoying the world one last time before it is destroyed forever so I’m making sure I don’t miss anything, in other words I’m hitting screenshot a lot.

And what a beautiful world it can be, still five years down the line the environmental effects add a lot to a world suffering from a low polygon count and it’s almost a shame the world is getting destroyed as I’m still noticing little touches, one of which I want to share with you today.

This picture is quite poignant of Blizzard’s attention to detail, but first some lore for the uninformed. The classic world of Azaroth is split into three continents, Kalimdor, Northrend, and the Eastern Kingdoms. Northrend is a place full of big evil things including the Lich King, the Eastern Kingdoms is where the Humans call home, and Kalimdor is where Thrall established the Horde at the beginning of Warcraft 3 and this picture is from a zone called Thousand Needles in Kalimdor.

What I love about this picture is the way in which the Night Elf style of signpost has been kicked askew, weeds growing showing that it’s not been tended to, and yet it still points to the only nearby Alliance point of interest. Meanwhile the new Horde signpost stands firm, pointing to all of the Horde’s new outposts and camps, with the sign stood clean and perfect almost mocking the disheveled Elven marker. Beautiful.

This is just a picture I really like. Enjoy.

Banjo’s Flintstone’s vehicle construction challenge

Banjo has been thinking about his past and realized he wants to see how Terry is doing back in Terrydacyland and decided he wanted a vehicle that would be appropriate, therefore this week’s challenge was to re-create the Flintstone’s iconic methos of transport in Nuts and Bolt’s vehicle editor!

Image

As with before, peruse the entries and then vote for the three you think most accurately replicate the family friendly vehicle of this prehistoric icon.

Ah memories, just how is Terry nowadays?
