I just saw this for the first time about 40 minutes ago while watching TV. It is undeniably awesome. Check it out below the cut.

Check out the 45 song track list below. If I had any complaints or requests it’d be for better Nas and T.I. songs. Def Jam Rapstar will be released this coming Tuesday, October 5th.
Below the cut is a video of the people from Ninja Theory attempting to explain how they wanted to take the character design of Dante from Devil May Cry away from fashionista and make him more hardcore. They accomplished this by giving him a very lame haircut and making him thinner; but he has bruises, so he’s a bad-ass.
In this case when I say “fan” I mean Marco Spitoni, an employee of WETA(the people responsible for the special effects in Lord of the Rings and District 9). He made this in his spare time and it is quite awesome. Check it out under the cut.
This is the greatest Halo: Reach video ever. No, not the best so far, the best ever. When this guy flips out after he “shoots some plasmas at this kid” it’s hilarious. He also “Punched that kid in the face: pro style” and he “camp(s) here like a faggot”. If you appreciate the humor in dudes acting like assholes and don’t mind vulgar language, you need to see this.
I need to thank the person that commented the link to this on last week’s New Game Day.
A couple days ago Microsoft announced their upcoming revamped controller with a “transforming” d-pad, grayed buttons, and improved ergonomic design. The buzzkill is that it will only be available in a $64.99 play and charge kit. The release date is November 9th. Check below for the video reveal.
Microsoft announced earlier today that starting November 1st Xbox Live Gold accounts will increase in price. They cited the addition of ESPN as one of the reasons for the price increase. If you’re a current Xbox Live Gold member you probably also got an e-mail about how you can get a year for $39.99 if you purchase it now.
Here are the new prices starting November 1st.
59.99 instead of 49.99 for a year.
24.99 instead of 19.99 for 3 months
9.99 instead of 7.99 for 1 month.
The A3-21 Plasma Rifle from Fallout 3 to be exact(bottom). How amazing does the craftsmanship look on that? He also made the AER9 Laser Rifle, also from Fallout 3(above). You can check out the rest of his photos of them here.
It turns out the creator of these is an animator in the games industry. If prop work paid more he might want to look into that.
In the picture above is a four-barreled shotgun. This game looks better the more I see of it. The quality of this video isn’t great, but the awesome substance is there. Check out the video below.
