Kingdom Hearts 2:Final Mix+ Trailer

I thought I posted this a while ago, but obviously not! It’s the trailer for the Disney / Square Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix+, which includes the original Kingdom Hearts 2 plus Kingdom Hearts: Re:Chain of Memories, a re-working of the GBA game that, chronologically, sat between Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2. Interestingly they’ve kept the fighting using cards thing that I really couldn’t get into.

Super Mario Wedding Cake

Super Mario Wedding Cake: It’s been around before but this is the first time I’ve seen it — entirely edible too!

Disney’s Tower of Terror: Half-Life 2

Take a look at this fantastic version of the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror from Walt Disney World’s MGM Studios in Florida. It’s created wholly with Garry’s Mod and Half-Life 2! I think this is the file here. (via The Disney Blog)

They sure don’t make TV commercials like they use to. This fantastic ad was for one of my favourite games as a kid, Burger Time, on the Mattel Intellivision. “We’re closed now!”

Captain America is Dead

How did this slip past the radar? Marvel superhero Captain America died last week. The first I’d head of it was when Kotaku mentioned it in reference to an article at on Captain America in video games.

Gabe over at Penny Arcade now has a Playstation 3 and throws out some negatives and positives from his short experience with the console. Bear in mind that the EU’s PS3 is different so, hopefully, ours won’t “burn with the heat of a million suns”.

I Am 8-Bit GDC07 Preview

A preview of artwork to be shown at the I Am 8-Bit show from, oddly, this year’s Game Developers Conference. The official site is here (but empty) but you can still see some of the older ones from last time here.
