Here’s the second official trailer for the Adam Sandler led sci-fi comedy Pixels set for release on July 24th.
The plot for the film rattles along like so:
In 1982, in the hopes of establishing peaceful communication with extraterrestrial life, NASA launches a time capsule into outer space containing images and footage of Earth life and culture. However, aliens misinterpret enclosed video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war. They attack the Earth using the games as models for their various assaults, including Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. President William Cooper (Kevin James) calls upon his best friend since childhood, former 1980s arcade champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), to combat the video game characters, Brenner decides to lead a team of retrogamers to defeat the aliens with various technology similar to those used in games.
I’m not a fan of Sandler or James personally, or their movies, but the one saving grace for this film is that it’s directed by Chris Columbus, a man previously responsible for Home Alone, Mrs Doubtfire and two Harry Potter movies. We live in hope.
I doubt there’s anything in this world funnier than an angry Scotsman losing his shit playing a video game. The video above uploaded by YouTuber Byze features a caddy race across a bridge infested with giant windmills.
Let the rage ensue.
Nintendo unveiled exactly what their new Zelda game would look like on the Wii U at the Game Awards this week and it was nothing short of amazing.
Although the game looks glorious and the world for you to explore dense and grand in scale, the best bit of this demo video is the entirely scripted interactions between Zelda lead producer Eiji Aonuma and original Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto.
Thanks to Rockstar changing the physics of mountain bikes in their game Grand Theft Auto V, this guy managed to glide right through the whole of Los Santos on his cycle.
Come November 18th if you happen to own a PS4 or Xbox One and you intend to purchase the updated and improved version of Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V, you will be able to play the game exclusively in first person mode.
In a revolutionary move by the game developers they’re hoping that the once traditonally top down game will now give players an altogether new experience as they re-explore Los Santos and Blaine County and if that wasn’t enough they’ve also announced even more bells and whistles. On their official website they declared the following:
Available in both GTAV and GTA Online, we’ve made a host of changes to accommodate this new perspective, including the creation of an optional first person cover system, a new targeting system, a more traditional FPS control scheme, and integrating thousands of new animations into the existing game. It’s also available at the touch of a button so you can easily switch back and forth between perspectives.
Alongside the new First Person mode, Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC features hundreds of additions and enhancements including 1080p resolution at 30FPS on PS4 and Xbox One (4K compatible on PC).
There you have it first person mode will be available both in-game and online which alters the contact a player will have with the world of GTA V.
‘Wipe that punch off your face!’
Here’s a POV style promo video for the forthcoming Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare game, available for your gaming pleasure on Monday.
The short is directed by Peter Berg and stars Taylor Kitsch as well as a brief cameo from model Emily Ratajkowski. It’s an impressive piece of marketing which demonstrates all the new bells and whistles the game has to offer, but through live-action.
