To All You xBox & PS3 Fans: New Kind of Trailer

This is the trailer for a game, not a movie. It’s for L.A. Noir, and it comes from the makers of Grand Theft Auto. This is what Blogged In had to say about it:

With this week’s release of gritty 1940s detective drama L.A. Noire for the Xbox 360 and PS3, however, Rockstar has raised the bar for what constitutes a cinematic video game experience. Boasting groundbreaking facial-mapping technology, an all-star cast and a lifelike recreation of 1940s Los Angeles, it’s already being tipped as one of the year’s best games.

“Ever since it first worked out how to assemble pixels so that they resembled something more recognisable than aliens,” says The Guardian, “the games industry has dreamed of creating one thing above all else – a game that is indistinguishable from a film, except that you can control the lead character. With L.A. Noire, it just might, finally, have found the embodiment of that particular holy grail.”

The Michael Jackson XBoX 360 Kinect Experience

I just saw this video over at 7ajidude. Coincidently, we just bought an XBox 360 Kinect, a few days ago when we were in Dubai.

You can not believe how excited I was when I saw 7ajidude’s post about the new Michael Jackson game. I love MJ’s songs, and they always manage to pick me up and get me to move. I admit, I might move like a crippled chicken, but it’s all in the effort and attitude, if you ask me.

   

I’m also double excited because I’ve even got the perfect fedora hat to go with my dancing. Now all I need is for someone to get me the game as a belated birthday gift. Any takers?

Cheap XBoX 360?

This limited edition 250 GB XBox is only dh 1,300 (kd 100), and comes with one free game.

Is this a good price? Someone told me that the xbox is sold for ks 160 in Re7ab.
That makes this xbox a bargain. So is it really sold that expensive in Kuwait?
