Remember that Aliens video I had posted here? Welllllll they asked me to pull it. The e-mail conversation went a little something like this.
To The Daily DL staff,
We would like to formally request that the Aliens: Colonial Marines trailer be taken down from your site effective immediately. We are requesting this due to the unauthorized method of distribution for the trailer. We will be officially launching this trailer soon and would be happy to include your site on the distribution list for this and other assets as they become available. Please email me with any questions you may have.
I recorded this at the Gearbox Launch Party that took place in Dallas Texas. I was registered as press, and recorded footage while I was there. There was no indication that I was not supposed to capture footage.
I’m just wondering why I’m being asked to remove the content now?
We always prefer to distribute trailer assets in digital form to our press partners because there’s no degradation in video and sound quality that way. We were unaware that Gearbox was allowing video filming at their party and are now in the process of asking those who posted the trailer via handy-cam shooting to take the videos down. As stated in my earlier email, we’re working on sending out the trailer in official fashion soon, with no degradation in video quality. I’m sure your readers would like to see the trailer with HD quality graphics and sound, and that’s what we’d like to provide themJ Let me know if you have any other questions, and I thank you ahead of time for your cooperation.
So being the nice guy I am I decided to remove the video. Hopefully they release it sooner than later because it looks freaking sweet!
Hey I know the site may look a little bit f-ed up, but thats just because our web guy is going through the code and breaking a bunch of stuff. I figured I would give him a plug while he works on the site.
Wow, this was quite unexpected. Episode 2 has reached over 8,000 views since March 21st 2008, thanks to the feature on Gametrailers.com. I’m very excited to see that the video is doing so well and am very happy to see that most people are enjoying the show!
Episode 3 was released Saturday March 22nd. In this episode I talk about Battlefield: Bad Company, the upcoming Wii title, Mario Kart, and Gibsons recent lawsuit. I have enough material for the 4th episode, so stay tuned for #4 where I’ll be covering a few stories from over the weekend and some big news thats been announced today.
Now there’s one thing I cannot deny. The guys who do the Zombie maps for World at War are awesome. They’re challenging, they’re fun, and if you grab some buddies it’s almost as good as say….another zombie kill fest.
The 3 maps will be called “Battery” “Revolution” and “Breach” with the Zombie Map Pack being called “Der Riese”
Personally my favorite zombie map was map pack 2 but I guess we’ll have to wait and see if this 3rd map pack can hold it’s own. It’s lookin pretty good to me at this point so keep an out the August when they’re released and enjoy some Zombie killin.
I have to say that Fallout 3 is easily one of my favorite games of 2008 and 2009. I have every achievement and just completed the Point Lookout DLC. That being said, heres the latest from Bethesda / ZeniMax on their next piece of downloadable content coming to my favorite game August 3rd to Xbox Live, and Windows titled “Mothership Zeta.”
and their official info on the DLC.
Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
Developer: Bethesda Game Studios
Platform: Xbox 360TM and Games for Windows®
Description: Defy hostile alien abductors and fight your way off of the massive Mothership Zeta, orbiting Earth miles above the Capital Wasteland. Mothership Zeta takes Fallout 3 in an entirely new direction – outer space. Meet new characters and join with them in a desperate bid to escape the Aliens’ clutches. To do so, you’ll wield powerful new weapons, like the Alien Atomizer, Alien Disintegrator, and Drone Cannon, and deck yourself out in brand new outfits, like the Gemini-Era Spacesuit and even Samurai Armor.
Story: A strange Alien signal is being broadcast throughout the Capital Wasteland, originating from a crashed UFO. Is it a distress call, or something far more sinister? That question is answered when you find yourself beamed aboard an enormous Alien spacecraft, with only one alternative – to fight your way to the bridge of the ship and secure your escape.
• Find and exploit new and destructive alien technology, like the Alien Atomizer and Drone Cannon.
• Explore the vast Mothership and learn the secrets of the Aliens’ master plan.
• Thwart the Aliens’ attempt to stop your escape, and take over the Alien ship before it wreaks havoc on the unsuspecting Earth below.
• Fight against the Alien Invaders, their robot drones, and turn their own horrible experiments against them.
• Ally yourself with an unexpected array of characters, both from the Capital Wasteland and from Earth’s past.
