Machinima has an all new animated series that unites Avenged Sevenfold with the producers of the hit show Metalocalypse. The six-episode series is based on the album of the same name that was released earlier this year from the rock giants. In conjunction with the release of the series, which debuts on December 15th, they will also be releasing a mobile video game, “Hail to the King: Deathbat”. Chances are if you dig the band, you will dig the show, but you didn’t need me to tell you that.
Back in early 2011, we were given a heart wrenching trailer for the then relatively unknown horror game, Dead Island. It was beautiful and absolutely unforgettable, setting a high bar for video game trailers to come. Some talented folks have decided to take it upon themselves to recreate this haunting trailer, frame-by-frame, in live-action. Grab some Kleenexes and check it out! READ MORE
Hard rockers Avenged Sevenfold are aiming to take over YouTube by teaming up with Machinima for a six-episode animated series entitled “Hail To The King”, which will air this fall. The series is directed by Metalocalypse’s Jon Schnepp and it definitely shows (the animation style is incredibly similar). The series will feature music from A7X’s new album Hail To The King, which can be pre-ordered on iTunes.
In a Facebook post the band announced that they have been hard at work for 18 months on an iOS/Android action/adventure game. It was written and developed by Subscience Studios. No release date has yet been set.

Still trying to get that sour taste out of your mouth after playing Aliens: Colonial Marines? This might do the trick.
Youtuber Kooberz has made a LEGO stop motion Aliens short, complete with an epic duel between a Xenomorph Queen and a power loader. It’s an amazing video that’s pretty much guaranteed to make any talents you think you have feel less than inadequate, and despite being a minute long it manages to be far superior to Colonial Marines. Check it out after the break. READ MORE
Crystal Dynamics’ outstanding reboot of the Tomb Raider series is possibly the best one yet. It’s also the most gruesome. Machinima has collected 35 brutal ways Lara Croft can die in the game and combined them all into a single video, for your viewing pleasure. You sicko. Check them out after the break. READ MORE
I’ve been waiting for the Forward Unto Dawn series to kick off since it was first talked about. After watching this first episode I’m not going to say that I’m disappointed, because I look at it like it’s the 1st part of a movie. I mean the thing is almost 20 minutes long, and not all movies start out with explosions. But it had a decent story building start to it and the next episode looks promising. Check it out!
E3 is over and the world is quiet again. I hope you enjoyed last week, really soaked it up, because with the exception of Lollipop Chainsaw (out today!), the next couple months are going to be dreadfully uneventful. I’ve always wondered what a Pac-Man film would look like and with retro games like Asteroids getting a film and even board games like Battleship, I knew there was a very good chance I’d eventually find out. Thankfully, the wait is over, and the result is more glorious than I could’ve ever dreamed of. Check it out after the break. READ MORE
This is without a doubt my new favorite thing to watch because it has everything I look for in my online entertainment: comedy, sex, gore and video games (and not necessarily in that order). If you think you can stomach so much bile-seasoned awesomesauce in a 3 minute package, check out the first episode in the destined to be great machinima series Hearts & Brains below.
I hope you like Kesha but I really don’t care because you’re a hooker. That’s just full of win. If anything this video is proof there’s fun to be had even when the zombie apocalypse inevitably arrives and the only hookers left are the drooling undead. READ MORE
