The Halo: Reach ad campaign continues

Earlier today I showed you the first commercial for Microsoft's Halo: Reach, likely to be one of the year's biggest sellers. This afternoon Bungie, the game's developer and creator, released the second ad. It's titled "Deliver Hope".

Remember Reach

When you can't convince Hollywood to make a Halo movie, do the commercial.

Portal 2 video introduces a British AI

Valve Corporation has been working on Portal 2 for more than a year. A sequel to the brilliant 1997 first-person puzzle game Portal, which if you haven't played it you really should, the sequel brings back Chell, the woman that escaped from the clutches of Apature Science's evil AI GLaDOS using her portal gun and spring-augmented jumping jacks on her legs. Chell's back in trouble in Portal 2 as this latest video Valve has just released shows. It also introduces us to a new AI named Wheatley, voiced by the British humorist Stephen Merchant. If this short preview of Merchant's delivery and Portal 2's improved graphics are any indication of the finished game, we're going to have a blast playing Portal 2.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the PlayStation Network

There's a Scott Pilgrim vs. the World video game coming out next month, August 10 to be precise, for those with access to the PlayStation Network. It's a tie-in to the forthcoming Scott Pilgrim vs. the World movie (that's arriving on August 13) and if you're a fan of the old 16-bit, Super Nintendo console universe, then this is going to be like gravy on a turkey for you. In other words, you'll want to munch on seconds and third and turkey leftovers all week long.

Crackdown 2 streets

Released today for the Xbox 360 is Crackdown 2, one of the console's eagerly anticipated games of the season, a third-person sandbox shooter and sequel to the first 2007 title. Developed by the Scotland-based Ruffian Games, the sequel brings to the title's fans the ability to play 4-player co-op and 16-player multiplayer modes. It's also amped the danger level for players returning to Pacific City as the mutant-powered Freaks are joined by the nihilistic anarchists called The Cell to cause mayhem in the metropolis.

Mortal Kombat concept video raises questions and shows fatalities

Mortal Kombat fans are wondering what the reasons are for a slick looking short film that reboots the movie spinoff franchise as a hard-edge actioner. The short has Hollywood level stars, fight choreography, editing and direction. The big question is: was this Mortal Kombat video done as a test for an R-rated movie reboot or is it the next step in the video game's evolution?

Blur wants to beat up Super Mario Kart

When a game company launches a new IP (intellectual property), there's high pressure to make it deliver. These days putting in a couple of years of manpower and millions of dollars isn't enough to guarantee that consumers will take notice, especially if your company is launching a new racing franchise into an already crowded game genre. That's where some innovative marketing can come in handy.

Play The Human Centipede: The Video Game

There hasn't been much coverage of The Human Centipede here on Coming Attractions. After watching the segments (no pun intended) and discovering about the...premise...of the movie, I needed some time to get to a better mental place.

And then I learn about this.

Halo: Reach drops September 14

"Finish the Fight" was the tagline that Microsoft used when the company promoted the release of Halo 3, the final chapter in the story of series hero Master Chief versus the bad alien guys known as the Covenant. But just because Microsoft told you to finish your fight didn't mean that the end of the Halo franchise was nigh.
