U.S. and English ambassadors, Louis Susman and Martin Longden, partook in a friendly wager and proceeded to rip on each other in preparation for Saturday’s World Cup game of USA vs. England. Through email correspondence, both “gentlemen” exchanged a few rounds of friendly banter.
Aside from the wit and charm, what made it so funny is that all it was exchanged through Susman’s email writer, Philip Breeden. If you’re from either England or the US or just plainly interested in the match-up, prepare to laugh and get pumped up for the 2010 World Cup. Transcript after the jump. Read more… »
I’m not entirely sure if this is a fan made film or if it’s part of a viral marketing campaign to promote a new game or film, but it looks pretty interesting. It almost has that Saw-esque vibe that delivers a creepy sensation. All in all, I was pretty impressed.
Living in California and only a 100 miles from Los Angeles, I feel like the majority of my friends got their degrees in film. So when we all get together, guess what we do? That’s right we make porn infomercials!
I had the privilege of being the main Ac-tore (French for Actor) in their latest film, and it was a lot of fun. Nonetheless, it was still pretty embarrassing. Here’s to you Dylan Snyder, you’re not the only thespian on Gamer Limit.
Assassin’s Creed is a wildly imaginative game that flips from the Medieval Christian Crusades from 1191 to a futuristic environment.
The game has many environments to explore, and because of its sandbox style of play, gamers have the freedom to explore and do virtually whatever they want. Despite its commercial success via consoles, the Ubisoft developers translated a great game into an even greater PC game. Read more… »
Crysis is one of the most stunning graphical videogames created to date. Aside from that, it’s a fantastic shooter with solid weapons, intelligent AI interfaces, vast levels and a pretty cool nano-suit to make this a bench mark for many developers to live up to.
What I liked most is how immediately this game throws you into the action. Many games have a warm up feel with a ton of backstory, but this game does the opposite. All you know is that you’re going into North Korea to fight some bad guys. Within moments of landing on a seemingly beach paradise you begin to fight your way through numerous soldiers. You have to use your wits to scout enemy intel, blow up communication blockages and stealth your way between enemy base camps.
The vocie-acting is pretty good, which helps immerse gamers into the experience. What I’ve noticed most about the game is that Crytek developers have a way with blending present day political stand offs with far-fetched alien realities. It’s a perfect blend to show how powerful Crytek pushes itself to achieve ultimate satisfaction. Read more… »
“Take a franchise you enjoy from games, film, television, or books. Now, write down five iconic franchise elements that come to mind when you think of it. For instance, you might think of the Enterprise if your franchise is Star Trek. Or the CTU badges from 24. Or Lara Croft’s guns… Whatever you choose, ask yourself why you remember them? If you can, write down why you think they are important elements of your chosen franchise” (Dille and Platten 6-7).
For this exercise I chose the Resident Evil series. From the game it has spawned books, movies, animations, toys, etc. When I think of five iconic elements I think of zombies, Umbrella Corp. Logo, Nemesis, Red/Green/Blue Herbs and Chests. Read more… »
