The Best of YouTube; Gaming Clips

According to EuroGamer, who gives us 10 categories filled with gaming clips;
This video is from #6. "In-game abuse: Oblivion dominoes"

(vid via momdu78)

Dave McCarthy, complied a hug list of YouTube gaming videos. There are Ten categories, and within those ten are several links to different videos. I spend a lot of time on YouTube, so I've seen or heard of most of them. Oh if you want of see the entire list click on Dave's name.

The video above is my favorite from the list, luv the music. The first time I saw this video was on Jenn Cutters blog, whom in my opinion is super cute, has got the sweetest smile I've ever seen... oh my heart.

I remember the first time I saw her it was like "Suddenly the wheels are in motion and I, I'm ready to sail any ocean" "Suddenly I don't need the answers,'Cos I, I'm ready to take all my chances with you", sniff... sniff that song gets me everytime.

Enchanted Arms: Xbox Live Gameplay

My first post was a somewhat negative review of Enchanted Arms, that review did not mention online gameplay. Well the good folks over at IGN did take a look at online gameplay, here is;

Multiplayer video #1 and...

(vid via me)

Here is Multiplayer video #2

(vid via me)

"It's been a dream of console RPG players to take their custom shaped squad of heroes and pit them against everyone else to see exactly who has the best tactics."

"Now, with the imminent release of Enchanted Arms, 360 owners everywhere can realize their dream and create the ultimate team - and prove it."

"The real concern now is how well the online battle system was implemented in Enchanted Arms."

Those were quotes from IGN's preview of Enchanted Arms online system. What did they think? To tell you the truth it was a bunch of words, and I'm a little light-headed, I just ate a bagel. Check out IGN's full preview here.

EXCLUSIVE: Just Cause dev diary 2


(vid via doublespy)

Avalanche does more talkin' about Just Cause, good, details I must have details. I must play this game, I want to try out that parachute, and I want do battle dictators , I want too... sorry. Got a little too excited, hey can you blame me, the game looks great.

I like the fact that I have to choose sides, and depending on who I ally with and when, I can incite island factions against one another, sounds cool to me. Reminds me of "A Fistful of Dollars". One island two bosses and me right in the middle; crazy bell ringer was right, man could get rich in a town like this... I mean island, heh heh.

Enchanted Arms Review

Good news from IGN: "Enchanted Arms Ships", but before you rush out and buy it, check out this Review from;

Not the most positive review I've ever heard. Can't recall anything positive said about Enchanted Arms, I don't care it looks great, and I'm still gonna check it out. I suppose it would be smarter to check out a demo, or a rental, we'll see.

Metro 2033: The Last Refuge GC 2006 Trailer

"4A Games' Metro 2033: The Last Refuge is the latest first-person horror adventure to crawl out of the abyss. Revealed last week to European press, the PC/ PS3 first-person shooter is based on a popular Eastern European cult novel from Russian author Dmitriv Glukhovskiy called, you guessed it, Metro 2033."

"Built using an original proprietary engine, Metro 2033 is supposed to have all the bells and whistles you'd expect from a next-gen game when done. Gamma-corrected deferred shading, motion-blur, dynamic lighting (with thousands of light sources), are phrases that are already being thrown around. What sounds more impressive to us, though, is how gameplay can be tailored to fit your personal style. If someone would prefer to live out their mission as a heavy strike fighter instead of stealthy killer, they can do that. Or if a player is observant enough to recognize the current political climate, they can influence the plot to go in a completely different direction." That was from IGN.

As for me the video has a creepy vibe, so that's why I posted it. Plus I've never heard of it, and it's always cool to come across a new game in development, kinda follow it along, watch the progress of the game. Yeah I like to watch, I'm in to that kind of thing, I know I know... Say no more, nods as good as wink to blind bat.

Enchanted Arms Launch Trailer

From IGN it was posted on the 29th, yesterday how did I miss that, well better late than never.

(vid via me)

It occurred to me that I've posted several Enchanted Arms trailers, nothing wrong with that. The game is amazing lookin', the gameplay looks great, it's sweet visual candy.

They keep makin' 'em I'll keep postin' 'em, 'cause that's the way I roll... I don't really know what that means, but it sounds cool.

Final Fantasy Sims Dance-O-Rama

(vid via EGMDemian)

I don't have categories, but if I did I guess this video would have gone under 'WTF'. I have to admit I think it's pretty good, and I like the music.

I thought about posting this to my second blog, but I saw it again and thought maybe I could do something with it.

I was wrong, the video speaks for itself, I can't top it. To tell the truth I'm a little distracted 'cause I'm watching the U.S Open, Federer baby ah yeah!

Exclusive Crackdown Video

From IGN, sorry should have made that clear in the title... heh heh.

(vid via me)

"With Crackdown on the way, gamers will soon have another way to decimate a city, this time with all of the powers of a typical guy. A typical guy with superpowers, that is."

"In this latest look we get at Crackdown, we see one of the many ways to put that superhuman strength to good use. The hero of Crackdown doesn't need to sling webs or fly to make it across the city quickly. Instead, he'll just jump from building to building without worrying about what happens if he should come up a little bit short of that next ledge. In fact, the video shows what happens if he misjudges the next gap. Window sills make nice handholds for the quick leap back up to the rooftops."

"While the rooftop hopping may be the focus of the video, we're more impressed with how smooth it looks. The hand waving animations seen while the agent soars over streets are just cartoonish and stylized enough to match the overall feel of the world. Instead of going with the approaching classic thugsploitation style of sandbox games, Crackdown is taking the genre in a whole new direction in terms of style."

That was also from IGN. What do I think? Hmmmm... Oh no! I've got to go the penguins just exploded!

Saints Row; Review has got a review of Saints Row, and now I've got something to post, sweet!

Interesting review not completely positive, but the game still looks like fun. I like the fact that all areas are open from day one, which is cool.

When I played GTA III and GTA Vice City, one of my favorite things to do was jump in my car turn up the radio and cruise.

Uh oh now I've done it.... "Baby, let's cruise away from here" "Don't be confused, the way is clear" "And if you want it you got it forever"... Sorry.

Resistance: Fall of Man First Look

GameSpot visits Insomniac to see how its first PlayStation 3 title is shaping up.

Good interview, I like when things are explained to me in simple format that is easy to follow and understand. Nice visuals, cool gameplay, and a clear description of the game. Resistance: Fall of Man, is lookin' real nice.

Still I wonder what people will do when this game comes out, and there's no console to play it on? Yeah that's right you heard me.

Can't get enough of this game, looks great. If I were to somehow 'get' :) an Xbox 360 this would be the first game I'd play on it.

While the Xbox 360 one does look better, I'll most likely get my hands on the more affordable Xbox version. 'Cause Krispy Kreme takes my lunch money... big bully.

Electronic Arts to Purchase Crytek?

New Armed Assault Trailer

I must be napping on the job, I saw this video on Friday the 25th, but didn't click the play button. Well today I see it again at, this time I hit play. Looks like fun, like the music too.

All I have to do is upgrade my PC and I can play Armed Assault when it's released later this year. Unless I spent my money on pizza and doughnuts, which will most likely be the case. : )

The Settlers For DS First Completely Real Time RTS

This video is the PC version, "The Settlers II: the Next Generation (10th Anniversary)"

(vid via banditen)

This video is the DS version simply titled "The Settlers"

(vid via bumsfrikadelle)

I first saw this RTS yesterday on, but for some reason didn't click play. Today I see it again on, I start to wonder maybe there is something to see.

After checking out the video and reading both articles, I'm glad I did. The upper PC video describes what I'll be doing and it sounds pretty good.

Will the DS offer the same gameplay features? If it does then it goes on my "Buy this Game" list.

According to both articles this RTS is completely real time, not turn based like; Age of Empires: The Age of Kings.

How they are made.

Ok Game Breakers it's time for another tutorial, I know how much you love them. This one goes through the process of making a video game.

(vid via Timboi69)

Now that you have seen the video who can tell me which game was used to show the process of making a video game? That's right Prince of Persia.

It being Saturday I'm sure you all have plans, so I'll end this post... Who me? No I don't go out much... at least not in the daytime or at night, or sniff sniff at all.

The Wheelman

First official Trailer

First thing I thought when I saw this was, 'looks like the Transporter', which was a good movie. Why not make a game similar to it? Vin Diesel is pretty cool too, so I'll be looking for more info on this one, as long as it's in a visual format. 'Cause I don't like reading, no sir don't care for it, not in the least little bit.

Is Silent Hill Based On A Real Town?

This first video is the "History of the Silent Hill", for anyone not familiar with the game. It's fun to watch and it puts you in the mood for the next video.

(vid via KingMetalliX)

This next video is, "Footage from the real Silent Hill" Centralia, PA
Did Centralia, PA really inspire Silent Hill?

(vid via intelinside5)

Did Centralia, PA inspire Silent Hill? Before I answer that question some background on this town. "As recently as 1981 there were over 1,000 residents living in Centralia, although the population has now dwindled to 11, as a result of a 40 year mine fire burning beneath the borough. Not unlike Silent Hill, which was left deserted since devastating coal fires ravaged the town and its people.

A trash fire was lit in an abandoned mine pit in Centralia, in 1962. The fire ignited an exposed vein of coal and spread throughout the mines beneath the borough. Several attempts have been made and millions of dollars have been spent unsuccessfully to extinguish this fire, that still burns today." "It is estimated that the fire has enough fuel for another 250 years."

Tragic circumstances but was this town the inspiration for Silent Hill. Yes... well at least that's what the screenwriter of "Silent Hill The Movie" says. "In researching different elements of Silent Hill, screenwriter Roger Avary came across a town called Centralia, which is in Pennsylvania. Centralia planted the seed for what developed into the town of Silent Hill."

Was it the inspiration for the video game series? Kind of seems that way to me. If you look at the second video, you see the atmospheric fog, and the huge cracks in the ground. The town is completely desolate aside from a few people. The series debut in 1999 the tragedy in Centralia began in 1962. What do you think? Would you go to Centralia... alone... at night?

Wii Hardware + Elebits gameplay

(vid via jayfresh)

I see a Wii mockup and someone playing Elebits, most likely on a Wii development cinder block er ah I mean kit.

Ok Ok I didn't post this video to discuss the Wii mockup... oops I mean "Hardware", I've developed an interest in Elebits.

On the current 1UP podcast they spoke about Elebits and some of the gameplay elements, which sounded interesting, so I decided to take a second look at the above video. Still not sure I get it, but for some reason a part of me is curious about it.

I'm left with more questions than answers, for example, I wonder when we'll see a working Wii?

Wow, whoever 'captured' this footage started rolling at the right time. When I saw the character in the game walking through the crowed( a huge crowed) of people, I was hooked.

Stranglehold GC 2006 Trailer

No news or anything really to report just a sweet a** kicking trailer. Which is always nice, I think so anyway.

How Exclusive is Lost Planet?

That Question was asked by, what's the answer?...

The answer is, according to an interview by 1UP's Luke Smith; "We will try to keep it as a 360 exclusive," Takeuchi said. "But, from the company's point of view, when you think about the business, in the future it's something [port the game to PS3] we might have to do."

Well interesting comments, but what the provide me with is a reason for the above trailer, other than my usual posting it 'cause it's cool, or sweet looking. It's actually relevant to an actual news item.

You know what though... my brain hurts, hmm... news hurts. Just like love, but that's a whole other topic I don't even want to go into.

2)Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix Secret Ending "Another Side, Another Story [deep dive]"

(vid via DoUTh1nkAboutMe)

3)Kingdom Hearts 2 Secret Ending

(vid via cloudkillerff7)

Three endings that I've never seen, let's start with;

1)KingDom Hearts Secret Ending "Another Side Another Story". How do you unlock it? Complete the game with all keyholes, 99 Dalmatians, and the Hades Cup.(via

2)Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix Secret Ending "Another Side, Another Story [deep dive]"
How do you unlock it?

To Unlock Deep Dive in Final Mix
*Note that this is different than normal version of Kingdom Hearts. You can only view this movie in Kingdom Hearts Final Mix. According to the difficulties:

Final Mix Beginner : You can't get Deep Dive
Final Mix Mode : Complete Hades Cup, Sealed All Keyholes (Including 100 acre Wood), Get all heartless into your Jimmy's memo (that means you've got to defeat Kurt Zisa and Phantom), Found all trinities, found all 99 Dalmatians, and complete the Jimmy's memo (every single detail of characters, and complete the mini games avaliable)
Final Mix Proud : Sealed all Keyholes including 100 Acre Wood, and clear the Hades Cup

After you see the end credits, Deep Dive will be unlocked.

By the way Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix is the "Japanese re-release of the game KingDom Hearts. Final Mix featured the English voice acting tracks and added 3 difficulty levels, a new camera system, a cut-scene skip feature, slight level design changes and stage additions, and a trailer for Final Fantasy X-2. It also included either a special music CD or a deck of Kingdom Hearts cards as part of its Limited Edition on the first day of release, and was also available in a Platinum Edition with stickers, a calendar of ary by Tetsuya Nomura, and a figurine of Sora." (via

3)Kingdom Hearts 2 Secret Ending
How do you unlock it? Heck if I know can't really confirm this is from Kingdom Hearts 2. It's all over YouTube, Google Video and different forums, which is where I first saw it, spicifially at the Forums. All I have is what the video submitter wrote, "Though not officially confirmed by Square or Disney, creator Tetsuya Nomura has openly admitted to having a plot for Kingdom Hearts III in the works and is planning to create it. Though, he has stated that he is working on another title first. Much like Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts III's first look can be found in the secret trailer at the end of Kingdom Hearts II. The first look at the game shows some new, unknown characters and a whole lot of keyblades."

There you have it long post so I'll end it... ... wait for it... Now!

As long as the price was right, I don't part with my money easily, I like my money. Well I'd part with it if I could go out with Jessica Chobot, hell I'd part my left arm for a date with her. Then again I don't think my heart could take, 'cause that's what you are Jessica, a heartbreaker.

One piece of advice from the review was you may want to rent it before you decide to buy it, good advice. I'm a sucker for pretty visuals and this game's got those so maybe one day, if I'm very good and save my pennies I'll be able to afford a rental. Hey that's the best I can do, spend most of my money on wine women and food, well mostly food, not really on wine either and I prefer not to discuss the third one thank you.

I don't know what happened in these videos, I'm not sure if it was real. For most of the first vid and the second, the Girl Gamers competing on "Botton Mashing"(a video game gameshow), are not presented well, that's probably the best way I can put it. I could continue to write my opinions of this show, but that's not what I do best, right ladies .... sorry, my thing is tracking stuff like this down for you to consume. There is a part of me that just wishes I could have been there to advise these young ladies. I'm not just saying that because they were adorable, I'm speaking as a human being, a male human with no social life, but I'm working on it. That reminds me I need to go check out my smoking hot sizzling "Friend Space", everyone a jewel, and no that does not include that Tom guy.

(Found out about this show from, I wish she had a MySpace profile, Marie F, what an angel.)

Rule of Rose

GTtv Preview

(vid via me) just posted a preview of the Japanese release of Rule of Rose. Finally I've been given a clear explanation of what this game is and what the gameplay is like. I like this kind of genre, don't want to go into what I saw too much, so your experience will be like mine the first time I saw it. I'm still creeped out.

American McGee Presents: Bad Day L.A.

Demo Gameplay

This was just added minutes ago to and now it's hear. Well it sure is interesting footage, it gives me an idea of what to expect from this game, but you can't really judge from just a few minutes. I do like the style of the game and it's always good to see humor in a game. I'd better wrap this up I need to do some more content hunting, I love doing that, you never know what will turn up or where.

Halo Graphic Novel

GTtv Review

(vid via me) provides us with great a review of the Halo Graphic Novel. I got a lot out this video, but watch it for yourself, bottom line is I'm hooked, this novel is hot. I've got a big visual sweet tooth, this novel is gonna be some fine eye snacking ... I'm not sure what that means.

My What a Huge Buster Sword You Have

This is the Final Fantasy 7 Buster Sword, and I want it. I found this on my one of my favorite online stores. This is from the product description. "No more small reproductions and inaccurate replicas. This is what you have been making out of foam and searching the internet for, Cloud Strife's Full Size Final Fantasy 7 Buster Sword. Appearing in the Playstation hit Final Fantasy 7 and in the newest film Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children." "Made from thick heavy steel and barely wieldable by anybody but Cloud himself, weighs 13 lbs but with most of the weight being above the handle, in the blade, it feels like 50 lbs. Strap this big bad boy to your back and show it off at any Cosplay convention to any Tifas that might be looking. Measuring nearly 52 inches overall, the blade is 7 inches wide blage 36 1/2 inches long, guard is 8 1/2 inches wide and 2 inches thick, sharp edge, and full tang construction." I'm not trying to drop any hints but my birthday is in November, I'm just saying.

Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII (PS2)

IGN Video Review

(vid via me)

Good review of Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII by Jeremy DunHam. I'm going to get this game for sure. I've become a Final Fantasy fan ever since Morgan Webb(one of my super hot Myspace friends) recommended Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. I spent so many hours playing that game, it was a blast. This game features Vincent Valentine, from FFVII, a game that I've never played, but I have seen Advent Children, Vincent appears in that movie, and he looks pretty cool. Like I said this game looks great the review cleared up a couple of questions I had, now I'll wait for the game to drop to a nice local used video game price, or I could choose a more convenient option and buy it online at a good price, from for example.

Guild Wars Nightfall trailer

1st In-Game Cinematic

(vid via jayfresh)

Going to the Joystiq well again, they covered the new Guild Wars Nightfall trailer. "With Nightfall's pre-release bonus pack just one month away, NCsoft and ArenaNet have released a trailer for the next Guild Wars campaign. The video includes sweeping panoramas of the African-themed landscape where Nightfall takes place, as well as battle footage featuring the new paragon and dervish professions." I actually saw this first on Evil Avatar, but I did'nt check it out, big mistake the footage is amazing. I was going to download it from the link Evil Avatar provided, but decided to check the usual suspects first, boom there it was, and now it's here, embedding rocks!

Pictures From THQ's Wii Press Event

Picture From MAXCONSOLE.

Joystiq covered the THQ's Wii Press Event, they wrote, "THQ hosted a super secret special Wii press event in New York City on Tuesday and IGN was on hand to get the pics and the goods. While there isn't any drastic new information that came out if it, there are interesting side notes that did, including the Wiimote speaker implementation:

All games used rumble, but no game used the speaker. When asked about it, a THQ rep told us that no documentation outlining the speaker has been received from Nintendo at this point.

Interesting that so close up until launch and a major developer hasn't been given the full details on a major component in the Wii control scheme. Check after the break for more pictures, including the Wii development kit (which is not a GameCube, like at E3)." Cool, good info but what caught my attention was that picture of the "Development Kit". Joystiq noted it was not a GameCube like the ones used at E3, but those dev kits don't seem very "Wii", look more like cinder blocks to me. Don't want to start any rumors, I'm just saying.

American McGee Presents: Bad Day L.A.

Helicopter Trailer

(vid via jayfresh)

Eurogamer reporter earlier today, "American McGee (remember him?) has had a right old pop at Sony and Microsoft, declaring that the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 are "just a video card and processor upgrade".

Speaking to CVG in an interview yet to be published, McGee ranted, "The only truly next-gen console out there is the Wii. Everything else is just a video card and processor upgrade."

He reckons Nintendo is going to "capture the hearts" of gamers while "Microsoft and Sony stab each other in the neck" over market-share.

I wonder if Bad Day La, which looks like it will be a fun game, will make an appearance on the Wii.

[Update: Richard over at Aeropause has a link to a demo for Bad Day LA.]

Madden NFL 07 Preview

I've never been into sports games, unless you count SSX Tricky or the Tony Hawk series, but this particular version of Madden looks like fun. I first noticed it when I covered the EA Summer Showcase. I suppose my interests are changing, or maybe it's one of those "right place right time" kinda things. For example I'm a fan of Rallisport Challenge, I knew about the game and had heard good things about it, but it wasn't until I saw it on a demo disk that I gave it a try. I've played the first Rallisport Challenge and the sequel, looking forward to any future installments. In the case of Madden NFL 07, I was probably in the right frame of mind and was open to experiencing something new, like the footage I saw from the Summer Showcase and this video today. It will be a while before I even get an Xbox 360, but I'm gonna add Madden NFL 07 to my "games to get(next gen)" list.

[i first saw this video early this mourning at, Game, but was too tired to post it. than when i woke up i thought i'd just quickly check my bookmarks to see if anybody any body else was covering it, there was, TechEBlog. so i thought, if i cover it now i'll look like some kinda johnny come lately. then i thought @#$* it, i'll cover it anyway.]

Sega Activator Training Video

(vid via jayfresh)

Remember the "Game Crazy" video, here comes another one. I don't know what to say about this one, the video speaks for itself. One word of advice from the vid, "avoid setting up directly beneath light sources" or you will surely die. Have a nice day.

[Update: after posting this i suddenly recalled seeing something about a "game peripheral", so i double checked and yep there it was posted yesterday on Destrotoid, by Niero, thought i saw this one first, oh well, it's all good.]

Game Break: Gets Tutored Lesson 3

HowTo: Disassemble a PS2

I hope you all enjoyed the previous installment, today we are shown how to disassemble a PS2, by Take It Apart dot net. Why take apart a PS2? Good question, not sure, but if you had to it's nice to have a visual instruction on how to do it. Plus I like seeing things taken apart, put back together, I think it's cool.

Utada Hikaru loses A Tetris Competition

Swiping another good story from Kotaku, this time from Brian Ashcraft. It seems that Utada lost a Tetris challenge, I didn't even know she played. I posted an acoustic version of Simple and Clean on Aug 1, so I knew she could sing. Well she must really be feeling kinda down about the loss so I think I'll try to cheer her up, let's all sing for her, I'll start it off "When you walk away, you don't hear me say" come on you know the words. She's gonna love this here we go "Please...Oh baby. Don't go. Simple and clean is the way that your making me feel tonight." That was fun, I love you Utada Hikaru.

Earthworm Jim PSP

Official Movie 1

(vid via me)

I got another good post idea from PSP Fanboy, who wrote, "The Atari love continues today, as impressions and videos from their "Atari Spotlight" slowly trickle in. Another PSP game featured at the event was Earthworm Jim. While the screenshots we've seen so far have looked really good so far, seeing the game in motion has elevated its desirability to an even greater level." "Our pal Jim looks to animate quick brilliantly. The platforming looks absolutely spectacular, with Jim have access to a plethora of moves, including a super-charged jump aided by his suit. While the combat and hit detection appear to be lacking right now, this very early demonstration of Earthworm Jim shows a lot of promise." I've known about Earthworm Jim since the early days of G4, never really got into it, but I like what I see in this video. Looking forward to more updates on this game.
