Video: ScreenTeam's Gears of War: Mad World Uprising



I've been watching the parody work of Chad and Angie (seen above) for quite sometime and find them to be very entertaining. As their videos are mostly in relation to videogames in some way they tend to fit right in at home for any gamer who happens to come across them. The quality of the editing and blue/green screen keying continue to get better and better hitting the high at the moment known as "Gears of War: Mad World Uprising". The Gears of War inspired paraody can be bought on Amazon here, but it's the accompanying video that makes the whole thing work. For what I assume is on a hairstring budget, they've done a marvelous job.

CNN gives its two cents on Kinect


It's always amusing to see the unabashed masses when they get their hands on tech they don't understand, especially when it's something that most geeks who live in the new have a hard time understanding themselves. That such thing is most definitely Kinect and so comes an obligatory report on Kinect from CNN. What you see below is a video that not only shows off once again that Kinect actually does work, but that it's still very much "in" to bask in the glory of not having have played a video game in a very long time.
