I got nothin to say today.... except.

- The new Rambo movie is using the success of Call of Duty 4 to try to attract movie goers. Check out the advertisement here.

- Former lead designers of Halo 1 and 2, and the Battlefield series have formed their own video game company, Tyrant. Let's hope they make some sweet games soon.

- Best Buy is backing BluRay over HD-DVD at their stores. I think we finally know who won the format war.

- Frontlines: Fuels of War Demo hit the Xbox Live Marketplace the other day with 2 maps that support up to 32 players. The 1.11 GB download lets you play the new FPS in multiplayer mode. I am going to try it out. I don't want to get too excited but it looks like a good combo between Halo and COD, you get to pick load-outs and roles like COD but it has vehicles and is set a bit in the future. Maybe it will be better than Halo 3 and COD4... combined. Below is the Dash Text from the Xbox Marketplace. And check out some of the game play videos here.

- I know this is not new anymore but did any of you guys get a chance to see the video of Richard Zednik getting his right carotid artery cut by his teammates skate. Here is the youtube video, and an article about it. The crazy part is he will fully recover, usually when the carotid artery is cut you might survive but suffer some brain damage as your brain doesn't get enough blood.

I'll be on COD4 tonight right after work if anyone wants to play some? Let me know.

Yeah Blue-Ray is going to be victorious. Of course, when you can store more data and you have a cooler name than more competitor you're bound to win. I can finally go buy one now and get the Planet Earth series.

That new game could be good, i watched the scope video, it seemed to play smooth and everything, the guy seemed hard to kill or maybe the dude was a bad shot. I am exicted about this game I hope it is good.
