The VGA awards passed (the what?) and while it seems most were disappointed, we did get something good out of it: first looks!

First off, we’ve got Brutal Legend, because I brought it up earlier:

Personally, I’m so excited for this. Some of the jokes are kinda lame, but overall I love the idea so much. I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt.

Next we’ve got God of War 3:

Cool, but I’m personally unimpressed. I think it’s more of a “yes, it’s happening” trailer more than a “look what we’re doing that innovative.” That said, I dug the first one, but I don’t think this’ll make me purchase a PS3 to play it. But that’s just me.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves:

I actually dug this. I never played the first one, but it looks interesting. Nice trailer.

And finally, GTAIV’s DLC, The Lost and Damned (great name)

I think I’m one of the few people who actually doesn’t enjoy GTA games. So I’ll obviously be skipping this. And really, do you have to show the names of people who I don’t know about? Saying this character’s name is “Billy” only means something if I know the character. Like, oh snap, Billy’s back. But then you realize his name is “Billy” and they could mean any “Billy” that you’ve ever met, because let’s face it, that name isn’t exactly a rare name to hear.

Not much to report today as I have been swamped on this terrible, terrible Monday. Along the lines of awful and hellish, comes this scoop from FT about an upcoming interpretation of Dante’s Inferno by EA. Thanks to MJ at work for the heads up on this one. While the book was pretty tough to read through (I’m not even going to pretend like I’ve finished it, though I’ve tried,) here’s hoping that EA figures out how to make this one playable, since I have no idea how they are going to. I’m looking forward to the fifth circle of hell, personally. Check out their official site here for a teaser video. I have to get back to work now, but I will look more into this and report later if anything comes up. Also be on the look out for more posts from the other members of the bird team.

peace, love, and fruity pebbles.
