Heavenly Sword presents: Pounding on limeys and the best cutscene ever!


9:18 AM on 07.29.2007



Big fat action games are my bread and butter and there's no denying that Heavenly Sword is looking like it'll be the biggest and fattest thus far in this fledgling generation. It contains the only three things I like in life -- leggy redheads with swords, brutal melee combat and the chance to mess up a bunch of my fellow countrymen. The demo is available on the PlayStation Network, but if you want some more, check out the footage above that shows off the game's aerial counters.

Hit the jump for a second video, one I declare a true treat, for it's a rather villainous cutscene of an evil fish n' chips king and his Eurotrash freaks that has, by all accounts, blown me away. All I can think of when watching it are old school adventure movies like Willow and Krull. The kind of epic fantasy films that they just don't make anymore. That is not a bad thing. It's got a dry, dark wit delivered by some amazing voice acting and it looks stunning. I hope the God of War similarities don't discourage people from checking this game out, because it appears to have all the makings of a franchise in its own right.

This Metal Gear Solid Codec theme makes me want a smartwatch

This super-cool Metal Gear Solid Codec watchface by njdom24 is the most powerful argument in favor of smartwatches I've seen yet. For a moment there, I was excited. Real excited. Then I looked up what it costs to own the device in question, a Moto 360, and reality sucker-punched me. If you've got one, you know what you must do: represent! skittleguy [Tumblr]more
