Uncharted 3 launch trailer released (Plus bonus video of Harrison Ford playing the game!)

We're about two weeks away from the launch of the third game in the Uncharted series. This time, Nathan Drake is searching for a 16th century artifact, only to be pitted against a "shadowy clandestine organization." There are elements of the occult, secrets and treachery. In short, it. looks. awesome.

Sony has just released the official launch trailer for the game, which comes out November 1. Watching it, you totally get a sense of what the game is all about. There are a few minor spoilers, but I think playing the game you'll get so immersed in all of the action, you won't even realize.

Check out the trailer and an extra special video after the break.

Felicia Day is a bad*** elf

Dragon Age: Redemption, a webseries tie-in to the Dragon Age series of video games, premiered online last week. Episode 2 was released today as we follow Felicia Day's character Tallis, an elf assassin, on her quest to track down a mage. I think that the suspense with the last two episodes has been great and I look forward to seeing them each week!

In a recent interview, Day talked about the how she prefers the filming for the web to a TV pilot or movie script. She said that when you work on the web, there is minimal interference with corporations. There's a bright future for web content, so I'm excited to see what's next for Felicia Day and my other favorite web stars.

Watch the trailer here and the first two episodes after the break!

Gamebreaker to team with WoWInsider and Wowhead for epic Blizzcon party

Okay, I'm not going to Blizzcon. That would be pretty sweet, but it doesn't make much sense because I'm not playing WoW right now. To satisfy my need for all things World of Warcraft, I follow posts from WoWInsider, WoWhead/Zam and of course watch Legendary on Those three entities of awesomeness are teaming up to host a reader meetup at Blizzcon that sounds like it's going to be pretty sweet.

You do not need to have a ticket to Blizzcon to attend the party, which will be held at the Anabella Hotel on October 20. There will be awesome swag, a chance to meet your favorite personalities from Gamebreaker, WoWInsider, and sites like Tankspot and Zam. It sounds like it is going to be a ton of fun and if you're not in California, like me, you can watch a live stream of the party on! 

There's even a Facebook event page for the party. So, if you'll be in the Anaheim area on October 20, even if you're not going to Blizzcon, check out the party, starting at 5pm PDT.

Disney meets the Lantern Corps

This is one mashup that I wouldn't have predicted, but that totally makes sense. SilverwingFox posted this rendering of the Lantern Corps on his DeviantArt account. He provided explanation for why he chose a particular character and they totally fit. Even though my favorite Disney Princess is Ariel, I totally get why he chose her for the Orange Lantern. Hope you all enjoy this!

Red Lantern Stitch-Based off his initial behavior
Orange Lantern Ariel-She's a horder, and incredibly selfish within the context of her own movie
Yellow Lantern Jack Skellington-He likes to inspire fear
Green Lantern Mulan-Most Disney characters fall under Will, so I just picked Mulan and gave her a Jedi ish outfit
Blue Lantern Beast-He has a lot of hope. And don't ask for what smartass
Indigo Lantern Aladdin - he's very compassionate, even more so in the series, so he fits
Star Sapphire Jessica Rabbit-She has great love for her husband
Black Lantern Flynn/Eugene Ryder-Fitzherbert-He died and came back to life, it's a no brainer
and White Lantern Rapunzel-She brought Flynn back to life, also DUH

Around the Web: I Tried to Play Alliance

I love World of Warcraft machinima. It's a thing. And I love when WoWInsider posts new videos to check out. This video by Palette-Swap Ninja isn't technically a machinima, but it's a wonderful parody of Thomas Dolby's 80's hit "She Blinded Me With Science." It sounds so much like the real thing it's creepily cool. The visuals aren't stunning like many machinima out there, this is simply a lyric video. I would love if they could create a video to go along with this. Even a live action video like "Arcade Gaming Shrine."

Not only is the song aurally pleasing, it also voices real opinions that someone playing Alliance for the first time might have. "Everyone made fun of me for playing a gnome..." "That worgen looks like it should be Horde..."

Enjoy the delightful goodness!
