New Folklore ad makes sex look boring: also, I'm screwing with all of you


9:36 AM on 10.18.2007



Honestly, the PlayStation 3 has been lacking quality titles, but after watching the just released, brand new trailer for the just released, brand new Folklore (see above), my hopes for Sony's baby have increased triple-fold. I thought I had grown out of this sort of Tim-Burton-meets-Hironobu-Sakaguchi RPG epic until I watched that clip up there and soiled myself with glee. Absolutely everything about that film screams joy, happiness and golden apples, and honestly if I could procreate with a piece of media, it would be that clip.

One quibble though: that PS3 'This Is Living' font at the end still sucks. It belongs on a sign for a chain of family restaurants, not at the end of a classy clip like the above.

[UPDATE: Full disclosure time, the above video is a lie, people are gullible, and I'm a terrible person. Hit the jump for an explanation.]

Two days ago one of the PR guys I've been e-mailing asked me to review the above clip. After watching it three or four times over, I responded in an extremely professional manner: I thought the pacing was odd, there was too much footage of walking around, and of course, the mind-bending horror.

Only later, after speaking to another writer friend of mine was I informed it was actually a hoax. I felt humiliation the likes of which I hadn't felt since all those other kids in high school laughed at me on prom night after drenching me in pig's blood. Of course, lacking the ability to pyrokinetically ignite a gym full of PR folk, I opted for route number 2: congratulating them on making me look dumb, and praying they'd let me screw with the entirety of my audience. Of course, since they'd recently developed an evil sense of humor, they were up for it, and sent along the above clip for my use.

Of course, you realize what this means right? None of you can ever trust anything you read on the Internet again. Thanks to that above Folklore trailer, we've entered an era of lost innocence. You're welcome.

The 'This Is Living' font still blows, though. That part was not a lie.

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
