At the risk of this video biting the dust, here's the one I've been viewing all this time.

I think the "Tone Trailer" part is important to keep in mind for anyone who takes issue with this showing nothing in the way of gameplay.

Thank's for the functioning YouTube link, I added it to the first post. Yeah, it's good to remember that the first trailer for Forza 4 was very similar. All "tone" and zero gameplay. Also, this game seems to be very real according to an interview Dan Greenawalt gave to Jalopnik.com.

Finally, fast Volkswagens in my Forza 4.

Apparently Turn 10 Studios have finally been able to cut a deal with EA concerning the use of Porsche cars. EA currently holds the rights to use Porsche cars in console racing games, and Turn 10 owns the rights to Ferrari cars.

This means that sometime during this Spring, Turn 10 will release a Porsche Expansion Pack for Forza Motorsport 4 which will include "30 modern and classic Porsche vehicles". The only confirmed cars thus far are the 0210 Porsche Sport Classic and the 2010 Boxster S.

There's a story up right now on Jalopnik.com

    Here's a dubstep tune from Joker which heavily samples the Snake Eater theme.

      It's worth noting that PlayStation 3 players also get access to a bonus mountain in Japan's Mount Fuji. It's a good level with some nifty scenery, but it's not necessarily so great that it demands purchase of the PS3 version. If anything, you should make sure you get the version that coincides with the console featuring the larger friend list.

      Mt. Fuji is actually not a PS3 exclusive in Europe.

      I buy a new machine every 5 years or so, and make upgrades when there are big game releases coming.

      I've dabbled into some stabbing ever since the BombCrew made it sound so satisfying.

      In all actuality, I probably wouldn't have bought Saint's Row: The Third if it wasn't for the BombCast. I really enjoyed the game.

      The Windwaker opening was incredible, I don't think anything can top that.

      Also loved the original Pokemon. It explains the world quickly and appropriately, and gets you into it right away:

      And it's 1996 all over again.

      I'm technically ghost agnostic, but it does seem a silly that there would be literally billions of ghosts out there from every previous human generation. Also, do animals develop into ghosts? How about plants?

      I don't like Risk at all but that Metal Gear Solid version is bad ass.

      How does the MGS version differ from normal Risk?

      I do like Risk rather a lot actually. But how much fun you have with the game depends hugely on the people you play it with. You need to find a group with long attention spans, a knack for diplomacy and deception as well as good stories to share in between the rather long turns. Many beers and good music also helps.

      Nowadays I usually play the XBLA version of Risk Factions, which is actually a great way to introduce new players to the game. It takes away most of the boring calculation and dice rolling, and negates any chance of the usual Risk arguments regarding invalid troop placement and so on.
