New Spyborgs Video

Capcom has released a new video for Spyborgs, their upcoming beat ’em up for the Wii. The video features Bouncer and Stinger beating up all kinds of stuff.

Spyborgs is Capcom’s hottest new video game thrill ride, combining an extraordinary sci-fi world with action-packed two-player co-op controls. In Spyborgs, gamers play as cybernetically enhanced superheroes who are betrayed by one of their own from the elite Spyborgs Institute. Players must team up to defeat this traitor through more than 35 stages of mind-blowing challenges, packed with epic boss battles and swarms of enemies that only two can defeat.

Ex-Gamestop Employee: Gamestop Sucks

If you could somehow remove all the mumbling, and slow down this guy’s speech, you would be able to tell that he’s super pissed off at Gamestop. So much so, in fact, that he’s decided to post like nine different Youtube videos on how much Gamestop blows. When I can understand what’s being said, he makes some good points (except the 50 Cent Bulletproof part, come on, it totally deserves platinum hits status). This is exactly why the future “Awesome Radical Video Game Store” will beat out Gamestop. I’m stuck on the mission statement so I can’t proceed with the rest of the business plan…I’m thinking “Establish Awesome Radical Video Game Store as the premier provider of video game software and equipment while employing the most knowledgeable staff and maintaining the highest possible level of customer service.”

Too Human Co-Op Video

Looks pretty awesome, I’m more excited for this game now then I was before watching this.

Edit: Ok, I upgraded to WordPress 2.5 recently, and it has an “Add Video” to post function. Supposedly, just enter the link to the video and it embeds it…but no…it actually just creates a link. Sorry, I’ll try to fix later.

Starcraft 2 Zerg Video / Fact Sheet

I always loved playing as the Zerg, something about beating an opponent by swarming them with tons of units was always fun. I can’t wait to hear “Spawn more overlords” over and over again…Starcraft was super awesome. Also, everytime I see a trailer for Starcraft 2 it looks better and better, I’m giving this game 5/5 Awesome Radicals right now.

Updated with a fact sheet about the Zerg units and a direct feed video (gametrailers posted a bunch of new videos) of some Zerg slaughtering Terran:

Classic Boss Battle Video

I saw this the other day, bored, looking around at stuff. I thought it was pretty awesome, it brought back a lot of memories…so many radical games. Like, what the fuck kind of last boss is that in Starfox, seriously? At the time I didn’t really think about it, I was too caught up in the amazing “3D” graphics. It’s just a giant head that shoots tiles out of it’s mouth. It’s totally radical, but how does one come up with that as a last boss? Are there meetings where everyone is like “We need a totally kick ass last boss, anyone have any ideas?” “Yeah…a large metallic head that contains a cube covered in images of Andross face. Obviously the face will shoot tiles.”

Bionic Commando Rearmed

Bionic Commando for the NES is basically totally awesome. The Japanese version placed the character in a battle against futuristic Nazis. The final boss was Adolf Hitler, who had been resurrected by evil scientists. Unfortunately, the U.S. version had all of that removed, but it was still a fun game. I remember playing this a lot as a kid and loving it.

This new remake, Bionic Commando Rearmed (available on PC, XBLA, PSN) looks really nice. Seriously, from the video it looks very well done, the graphics look totally sweet. I wonder if it will have all of the future Nazi stuff included. It is scheduled to be released in Spring of 2008. Here’s the whole press release:
