Retro City Rampage Breakfast Cereal Commercial
Vblank Entertainment's upcoming game Retro City Rampage is for gamers and cereal lovers alike. They were actually able to combine video games with cereal, awesome stuff... well sorta.
Assassin's Creed for Kinect announced!
Now this one is quite amazing. Finally, they are using Kinect to its full potential. Not the best way to use Kinect, but a good attempt though. Did you ever dream of doing a Leap of Faith in your very own living room, well now you can but it looks like it could hurt a bit.
Props to the people who did this. It's not actually Ubisoft who released this but just a group of fans of the game that have been playing to do this. Definitely well made and pretty hilarious.
Google Maps 8-bit edition!
And you thought the NES was dead. Google spreads Google Maps even further by releasing Google Maps 8-bit Edition. look for certain locations and get directions in amazing 8-bit graphics.
Want to try out the 8-bit version of Google Maps? Go ahead to Google Maps now, click here. Man I hope they keep this 8-bit version around though.
Harmonix's next new game revealed!
Harmonix reveals its next game that they state is way more fun than any of the Rock bands out now, and that is Rock band Board game! Ok, this one has to be the weirdest gag this year.
League of Legends in 3D
You won't believe your eyes!
My personal favorite has to be Google maps 8-bit Edition. Why? Well because it's hilarious plus I actually want one, for real.
