As you guys might remember from the trailer and the 3D trailer we posted before, G.I. Joe: Retaliation is coming out on March 28th. That’s really not too far away now… Hot men in military gear shooting guns? Yeah I’m definitely still in.
In the ramp up to it’s release, they’ve released a little web-based game they’re calling Cobra Strike. I’ve had a little play and it’s actually strangely addictive. When I first got in I was kinda like…”is this it?” but then I actually kinda had a lot of fun with trying to get headshots…and shooting people before they could get into place.
If you’re a fan of FPS games, you might find it a little drier than the high quality stuff we’ve got today, but for a web-based game – it’s pretty enjoyable for a little time-wastage. Lots of Facebook integration too, if you’re into sharing your awesome scores across your network and challenging/inviting your friends to play with you.
Let us know how it goes if you end up playing the game – and what your high score ends up being. I didn’t end up having time to get to the end, but if someone challenges me I might not be able to turn it down.
Check out this awesome new technology. Basically the software these guys have developed reads your face in real time and maps your expressions onto the avatar. That’s right down to frowns, eyebrow arching, shifty eyes and big fat grins! It’s really cool technology and could totally reform alternate reality gaming such as World of Warcraft.
It could also make something like Second Life even more realistic to its users than it already is. Not to mention online dating. Imagine Grindr using this stuff!
What do you think? Is this tech awesome or drawing us dangerously further away from reality?
Check out this really cool choose-your-own-adventure type game, but done through YouTube videos. It features an adventure that Luigi must go on to save Daisy from a haunted mansion. Beware: a few adult themes.
The concept is awesome. It was actually uploaded about a year ago, but it’s totally wicked. It’s digital storytelling at its finest if you ask me! I can’t believe we don’t see more of these around.
Anyone know any other choose your own adventure games on YouTube? Let us know in the comments!
