Space Giraffe developer and notorious industry whingebag Jeff Minter has been hard at work on a new game that he is hoping to pitch to Activision. Not really, but his idea for Video Game Hero could be a pretty good prospect nonetheless. Surely anything would be better than Space Giraffe

"Someone should do Video Game Hero: You pretend to play games with no real skill in using a rubbish plastic joystick and set to cheesy music," states the James Seth Lynch lookalike. 

Brilliant idea, and oh-so witty satire, Mr. Minter. Let me also pitch a Hero game of my own that I've been working on with the boys in the lab. We call it Jeff Minter Hero: You pretend to develop games by throwing psychedelic colors and Internet memes at players and then throw a temper tantrum when nobody wants to buy your weird, stupid bullsh*t. 

I think Activision would love that.

Watch the Golden Gate Bridge get destroyed in Advanced Warfare

Ghosts was a giant disappointment but man Advanced Warfare is looking really good. I'm mostly interested in the multiplayer at this point, but the single-player looks like it will be worth it this time around too.  The latest video for the new Call of Duty focuses on San Francisco, showing off a chase and the eventual destruction of the famous Golden Gate Bridge. more
