Sony PS3 ads FTW!!

Posted in Game Related with tags , , , on October 25, 2009 by guid0

I love the new Sony PS3 Slim commercials. Like the Apple ads they’re funny enough for me to actually want to go go out of my way to watch ’em as they’re generally quite entertaining. OK, some are more win than others but they’re a hell of an improvement on previous efforts in that they actually tell you something about what the PS3 does and in a humorous way that’s a lot less abstrat than previous efforts. Here’s links to all the ones I could find on YouTube. It all started here with this one regarding the price drop…

PS3 $299:

Asteroids movie in the works?!?

Yeap, there’s a movie based on the old 2D wire frame shooter Asteroids in the works and the first details of a script for it have emerged…

Ship Capt: Shit there’s asteroids everywhere [to gunner] Shoot them!!
[Pew Pew Boom Pew Pew Boom]
Gunner: Oh noes they all broke into three little asteroids!?! Now what can we do??!
Ship Capt: [to gunner] Shoot everyone of dem mutha-fukas!
[Pew Pew Pew Boom Boom Boom Pew Pew Pew Boom Boom Boom]
Gunner: Whew that was close but oh noes there’s a flying saucer flying erratically across space?! What can we do??! We’re on a collision course!?!
Ship Capt: [to gunner] Shoot the muther farka!!…
Gunner: Die bitch DIIIEEEEE!!!
[Pew Pew Pew]
[BOOOOM!]
Gunner: YEAH!! I got you muther fukka!! I totally Pwn’d you!! Game over man!! Game OVER!!

Not so sure that this will be entertaining for an entire two hours? Fun for a few minutes maybe?! At least the CG department will have it easy. They could output all the special effects shots using a render farm made entirely of 1970s digital watches! They would have processing cycles to burn! Although the special effects guy has got it hard compared to the sound effects guy!! Bleep Bloop, Bleep Bloop. Pew Pew! Booom! Pew Pew! Booom! Booooom! I mean an old 8 track recorder would be overkill!!

Red rings are out – E74 is in

Posted in PC, PS3, Xbox360 with tags , , , , , on April 16, 2009 by guid0

Microsoft have put the Red Rings of Death to rest once and for all – by renaming it E74 and giving it a shiny new Black Screen of Death to replace the traditional Red Rings 😀

Microsoft recently admitted that it’s the same old general hardware failure that the Red Rings all too frequently announced to 360 owners around the world and as such they have extended the extended warranty to cover the new and improved general hardware failure error, the E74.

Not quite as catchy but this hasn’t stopped IGN from renaming their weekly xbox podcast to E74 in the new error screens honour. It was previously called “Three Red Rings”.

Below is the image that shows E74 in all it’s glory and after that you can see the PS3 eqivalent. Yes, it’s not an Xbox exclusive! Sony too has their own port of the E74! It’s called the Yellow Light of Death! :-p OK so it’s not that great but hey, it’s in beta!! There’s a firmware patch coming out that’s gonna make it blink in time to your own custom theme music!! :-p

I’ve also added a pic of a great parody of the RRoD and as an added bonus there’s a pic of a great BSoD t-shirt so the PC doesn’t feel left out 🙂 As far as I know the Wii doesn’t have any such flashy error message but according to a Nintendo PR they aren’t in direct competition with Sony and Microsoft and therefore don’t need to match the competitors feature for feature and feel that most people don’t want flashy error messages anyway.
