Although it’s being labelled as disappointing by many critics around the world, our very own Adam Dodd quite enjoyed Sega’s Alien: Colonial Marines. One of the aspects that he truly enjoyed was the music, which was composed by Kevin Riepl (Gears Of War, HENRi, Hunted: The Demon’s Forge). Taking inspiration from the original James Horner score but giving unique and original twists, it seems that the music is the one thing that most critics can agree upon being a shining point in the game.
And now Kevin Riepl has uploaded five tracks from the game’s score for your listening pleasure. Head on below to get your taste. READ MORE
There are days when I look at the internet and I immediately get weary. It’s so vast and unending that it’s rather daunting. But then there are days when the internet spouts out something so wild, so insane, and so outrageous that is just works! Today is one of those days as I was shown a video of MC Hammer‘s “Can’t Touch This” mixed with the Battery Zone theme song from Sonic The Hedgehog. Not since The Addams Family has MC Hammer been this cool. Check it out below and prepare to get slammed with all sorts of 90′s nostalgia. READ MORE
The Silent Night remake hit limited theaters last Friday and has been drawing in some very high reviews, including one from our very own Lonnie Nadler, which you can check out here. We’ve brought you an interview with director Steven C. Miller and now it’s time to chat the music of the film with composer Kevin Riepl! Below you’ll find an exclusive interview with the music maestro himself.
The film’s cast includes Malcolm McDowell (Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Easy A), Jaime King (Sin City, My Bloody Valentine 3D), Donal Logue (Shark Night 3D, Blade), Lisa Marie (Sleepy Hollow), Brendan Fehr (Final Destination, X-Men First Class), and Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World).
“McDowell and King star as a small-town sheriff and deputy on the hunt for a murderous Santa Claus terrorizing their community on Christmas Eve. But with the streets full of Santas for the annual Christmas parade, the killer is hiding in plain sight. He’s made his list, checked it twice, and the naughty are going to pay with their lives.” READ MORE
Releasing ToeJam and Earl on the same day as Halo 4 was in my opinion, DUMB. So once I come down off my Halo 4 high horse I will definitely be getting the ToeJam and Earl collection. In case you didn’t already know, it’s out today in North America on the Playstation Network. Tomorrow in Europe on the PSN, and globally on Xbox Live Arcade. It includes the original game, and the 2nd game ToeJam & Earl: Panic on Funkotron. Supposedly the Playstation Network will sell them at 5 bucks each, and XBLA will have them bundled together for 800 Microsoft Funk Bucks. Screens past the break.
I’m speechless. I never thought I’d see the day. But it really is happening. ToeJam & Earl are coming to the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. Some childhood memories are flooding out my brain. November 7th you’ll be able to get the original game and ToeJam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron as part of Sega’s Vintage Collection, a pack that will run you 10 bucks or 800 Microsoft Toe Jammy Points. Both games include Trophy and Achievement support as well as online 2 player co-op for both games. Screens and game info past the break!
Once in a long while a video comes by and changes things. It changes lives. The Dead Island trailer did just that. This Rise Of Nightmares trailer will do just that.
Mind blown? Life changed? Re-thinking your college major and overall life path? You should. September 6th is the date. Xbox 360 Kinect. You know what to do. READ MORE
If you recall a little over a week ago I posted about the Rise Of Nightmares pre-order bonuses. They are not so good. And just when you thought there couldn’t be a worse bonus, along comes the Amazon.com pre order bonus. For the exact same price, you get a Jester avatar pet. That’s it.
Listen, I know I’m bitching. I mean we should be grateful we get ANYTHING at all for free with the game just for pre-ordering. I remember spending full price for a game when I was younger, getting absolutely NOTHING extra with it, and then hating the crap out of the game. We live in a good era for video games. But if Amazon wants to beat out Game Stop they need to schmooze some better exclusives. Although Amazon does a lot of the time offer you a 20 dollar credit towards your next video game when you buy a new game from them. READ MORE
There is no doubt about it. Rise Of Nightmares is not your average Kinect game. But as they show more and more of it, it’s not normal by any standards. It looks darker and more brutal than most horror games that have been coming out. And yes, that is a perfect fit for Bloody Disgusting. Check out this ridiculously brutal and weirdly awesome Red Band Trailer below.
Rise Of Nightmares will be out September 6thfor the Xbox 360 Kinect, and I won’t be sleeping that night because of how freaked out I’ll be. READ MORE
If you haven’t already checked out the frighteningly horrific Rise Of Nightmares screen shots that Adam posted 2 articles down, I suggest you stop acting like a scared little baby and do it. I mean sure Adam basically came onto the entire BD audience, but that’s nothing to be so afraid of. He’s gentle, and soft, and likes to coo softly in your ears to get you going.
I’ve strayed WAY far off the subject. If you pre-order Rise Of Nightmares from your local Game Stop you get some absolutely meh bonuses. I know you’re dying to know what the “lame” exclusive bonus stuff is, so I’m going to hold your hand to the mouse and make you click to head past the break to find out what exactly it all is.

I’ve been excited for a more ‘adult’ game to be hitting the Xbox 360 Kinect, but I have to say after seeing the trailer below, I’m 150% in. The trailer for Rise Of Nightmares is insane, fucked up, gory, old skool looking, bat shit crazy, and just plain awesome. I can’t really hype it up any more so just watch the video and tell me how sweet it looks.
Just a few days ago it was made official that Sega Dreamcast classics Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi would be making their way to the Playstation Network and Xbox Live sometime in the fall.
Those 2 are just the beginning of the revolution. More games from Sega Dreamcast will be making their way to the nex gen systems. Check out the screens past the break. READ MORE
Sega and Headstrong Games are coming out with House of the Dead: Overkill, a shooter in the vein of the Grindhouse movies coming out February 10 for the Wii. If you pre-order the game through Gamestop, you get a limited edition copy of the House of the Dead Overkill comic. This comic is a prequel to the game and is considered “adults only.” This comic and game are making this seem like this is a reason for me to turn on my Wii again. Check out a preview of the comic and more info after the break… READ MORE
