Wii Sports Resort takes over Times Square

Wii Sports Resort takes over Times Square

Not to sound like a tool, but this was just a brilliant idea. Yesterday (Thursday, July 23rd), Nintendo promoted the launch of Wii Sports Resort by turning Military Island in Times Square into a mini-Wulu Island. Granted, it could have been better had it taken place on a larger piece of real estate, but short of cordoning off Central Park or Coney Island, this is not too shabby.

Despite the close quarters, it looked like a cool event, I'm sorry I missed it.

Video game-themed Burlesque show

Can't get enough of seeing your favorite video game vixens (and Link) in risque pictorials? Well, how about a burlesque show? The show was put on by the Devil's Playground burlesque group for a Video Game Girls event in Los Angeles. The dancers here aren't female gamers, but for the most part they did a job on the costumes and the seductive dancing.

Video: Lego Donkey Kong

Yeah, it's old, but I thought it was cute seeing someone using an classic toy like Legos to recreate a classic videogame like Donkey Kong.

Video: Jimmy Fallon previews some celebrity videogames

I can't help but think that given time this could really become a good late night program. Can you picture Leno, Letterman or even Conan attempting something like this?

The Horror Geek presents: Afterlife begins in September—Resident Evil: Afterlife, that is

Resident Evil Apocalypse

With news that a fourth Resident Evil film was in the works only being confirmed recently, it's pretty impressive that a shooting date has already been lined up. These guys don't screw around when they decide to make a zombie flick…

Production Weekly is reporting that the newest Resident Evil film, titled Resident Evil: Afterlife is set to begin shooting this September 28th in Toronto. No real details have emerged yet (although the film is currently slated for a September 17th, 2010 release date). We do know this much—the newest outing will take place in Tokyo. I figure it's safe to assume that Milla Jovovich will return, but that's not official at this point.

 

 

Video: Penn & Teller Bulls**t! tackles videogame violence

Ok, Penn & Teller: Bulls**t! is not exactly the highest on my list of shows to watch, but when it does it right, few shows on television or cable are better at pointing out the absurdity of most of today's cultural issues.

This particular episode covers videogame violence—rampant videogame violence if you listen to the likes of Jack Thompson or Hilary Clinton. Penn & Teller: Bulls**t! looks at the industry, the violent games and does a really good job of putting a sane face on some of the madness.

And thanks to YouTube, we are all able to watch what foolish Showtime subscribers pay to see. That is, until Showtime discovers that its content is available for free. So hurry up and watch it before it gets taken down.

Btw, this video is totally NSFW!

Olivia Munn's Playboy cover revealed

Fans of G4TV's Olivia Munn that just can not get enough of the sultry looks she gives into the camera, her flagrant use of double entendres and propensity to don costumes taken out of every teenage boy's cosplay fantasies can finally see her in all her glory—if glory is another word for bikini.

Yes, Ms. Munn is giving her massive following another thrill as she poses again in Playboy and graces the cover in a skimpy red bikini.

The issue went on sale this Thursday, June 19th. Below is the reveal so you know what to look for.

Video: Conan O'Brien talks about Super Mario-inspired set

Viewers really need to support Conan's Tonight Show. He is such a refreshing change from Jay Leno.


Crysis and Unreal engines recreate classic movie scenes

Winners of Game-Artist "Scene from a Movie" Competition

This goes up on the cool wall.

Game-Artist got some computer artists together for a competition to see who could come up with the most authentic, real-time environment from a movie. The winning entries were from Bladerunner (seen above), Steven Spielberg's Hook, Aliens, X-Men 2 and I am Legend.

I won't spoil who won—you can probably figure it out though—because you really have to see more of these recreations for yourself.
