I don’t usually post random videos, but you just need to watch this. It’s awesome. (Watch it in HD)
Thats right. Check this baby out. $399 USD will get you this nicely done up xbox (I prefer the Halo 3 one), with a 250 gb hard drive, two controllers AND THE GAME. Considering a normal Xbox 360 Elite, with a 120 gb hard drive and one controller will run you $299 USD, plus an extra controller ($49.99), another 120gb hard drive ($149.99) and the game ($59.99)….the Modern Warfare 2 bundle seems like a pretty crazy deal…you basically get $560 bucks worth of stuff for $399, and you get a limited edition xbox.
Downsides. (If you’re really diehard), the bundle comes with the standard game…not the collectors edition, and not the prestige edition..so sorry, no night vision goggles. Also, the controllers will just be standard controllers…(wireless, not wired)…there will be no modern warfare 2 trimmin’s or special colours on the controllers. (My favourite part about my Halo 3 edition Xbox was the army green controller).
Ok. I need to stop blogging now. I’m starting to feel maniacal. Overdose of the Daily Dale today. Hope you guys enjoy. I’m going to bed.
For anyone who has played Left 4 Dead, I can safely assume you are quite aware that this is a game that doesn’t take itself too seriously. For those that haven’t played it, I should explain. Left 4 Dead was a game released last year by Valve, in which you are part of a 4 man squadron of randoms (An old war veteran type with a beard, a black version of Shaun of the Dead, a hardcore biker looking dude and a random girl), who are the last human beings in a world overrun by zombies. You basically have to fight your way through “scenes”, in which literally hundreds of zombies try to own you, and you are given random guns and explosives to take them out. You have to work as a team (so this game is not conducive to single player play, although it does offer it), and killing the zombies is gleefully violent. Appendages and heads go flying, especially when using the shotgun or the explosives. There is a zombie that vomits all over you, and his vomit attracts other zombies. There is another zombie with a ridiculously long tongue that can lasso you from hundreds of feet away and suck you in then rip you apart. Anyway, I digress.
This is actually a post about the upcoming sequel, appropriately titled Left 4 Dead 2. Valve released the first Left 4 Dead almost as an experiment, to see how customers would react to this simple but incredibly violent co-op zombie fest. Needless to say, it was one of the hottest games out last year for every single platform it was released on (PS3, 360 and PC). So Valve took into account what people loved and didnt love about the first game, and incorporated it into the sequel. Now, amputating zombies is even MORE graphic, and we can expect to see bones and ribs and pieces of skull when we unload on one of the undead. But the most exciting new addition, in my opinion, is the plethora of melee weapons. The idea of beating the living (or unliving) shit out of a zombie with a random household object sounds just great. Now Valve has released the list of melee weapons we can expect in L4D2. And the list of melee weapons is longer than the list of guns in the first one. Amazing.

There has been alot of news in recent months, ever since E3, from Microsoft about Project Natal. For those who dont know what that means, its the codename for Microsoft’s new motion controlling peripheral, due out sometime next year. When plugged into the current Xbox 360, it allows full control of gaming without the use of a traditional controller. Basically it looks like a whole lot of awesome. The motion of your body is replicated on the screen, and according to Microsoft, it is incredibly accurate, virtually (pardon the pun) 1:1. Take a look at the video below if you still cant wrap your head around the concept.
